  • julien: Bulgary and burberry have really a good place now in the world of perfumes.
    I must confess i just love old houses and old perfumes or when modern ones are made like older scents.

    Yes…i do think perfumery at its best was before.

  • Allison: I am a new reader of this site and enjoying it immensely. It was so nice to see Agraria on the list of winner. Their Bitter Orange line smells like heaven. November 29, 2005 at 11:13am Reply

  • julien: Yes,of course,i am not a passeist person(i am too young for that!lol),but i seldom find new fragrances which create an emotion for me…except Lutens,MALLE,and other confidentials. November 29, 2005 at 2:05pm Reply

  • Marina: Oh my…well, at least it is not Cool Water for Women. I am surprised about Omnia…it is certainly a lovely scent, but didn;t think it was outstanding. I shoudl re-try. November 29, 2005 at 9:39am Reply

  • Tania: It’s sort of delightful to see awards for fine fragrance next to awards for “Tide with a Touch of Downy April Fresh.” 🙂 November 29, 2005 at 11:41am Reply

  • kristen: Giorgio Beverly Hills! Haha…I guess it will never die. It just reminds me of the 80s…and Pretty Woman. November 29, 2005 at 12:59pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Julien, I love many classics, and if I were to make my lists of favourites, they would dominate. That being said, there are modern fragrances that are oustanding and interesting, and the fact that the art of perfumery continues to evolve is the most important. November 29, 2005 at 1:20pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: M, I am not sure about the criteria. Maybe some sort of algorithm encompassing both the commercial qualities and originality?? November 29, 2005 at 1:21pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Allison, welcome! I am glad to hear that you are enjoying the site. Agraria Bitter Orange is great, and I was pleased to see it mentioned. November 29, 2005 at 1:24pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: T, it is kind of funny, but functional products are a huge market for fragrance suppliers. Not surprising they would rate them as well. November 29, 2005 at 1:25pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: K, no, it will never die! I do not think that there is a chance of that. 🙂 November 29, 2005 at 1:26pm Reply

  • Evan: Bulgari Black is reason enough to give Bulgari an award, however belatedly. November 29, 2005 at 2:27pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: J, I did not think so at all. If a perfume does not create an emotion, then it cannot be a fragrance I can return to again and again. So, that is very true. November 29, 2005 at 3:54pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Evan, Bulgari Black deserves an award too. A great composition! November 29, 2005 at 3:55pm Reply

  • Evan: Yes, I feel like I should buy a couple bottles of it because I think it will be the first to get the axe. November 29, 2005 at 4:00pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: I am considering it as well. For now, it is still sold… I hope that it will not be discontinued. That would be unfortunate. November 29, 2005 at 4:20pm Reply

  • Katie: It’s so funny to me as well to see the awards for the household products, though I can of course make sense of it. I think as a person who is a perfume-freak, I make an extra effort to AVOID most scented detergents and home soaps (with the exception of scenting my own homemade countertop spray for the kitchen, and lavender hand soap to get rid of stinky dishwater hands.)

  • BoisdeJasmin: I think that it is nearly impossible to avoid scent in the functional products. Even the ones that are scentless are actually loaded with aroma-chemicals that mask the smell of the actual constituents in the product. I prefer to have scentless soaps and body lotions to avoid clashing with the perfume I am wearing. November 29, 2005 at 5:39pm Reply

  • Kay: My mom bought Giogio BeverlyHill during her first & only trip to Europe. It was the 80’s and now I still have the bottle with some of the devine scent left. I just couldn’t fihish it without having a new bottle at hand. I can’t find it in Asia, where I live.Can anyone help, where can I get it. It’s somewhat a time-capsule for me.
