  • Tourmaline: Please don’t enter me into the draw, as I live in Australia.

    However, I’m happy to share the perfumes I’ve found myself wearing the most, recently. They are Mitsouko (including today), Insolence (including on Halloween), Yvresse, Rose by Yardley, and Tuberose by David Jones here in Australia. Those fragrances are all very easy for me to access, as they are currently either on my dressing table or on a bathroom bench (admittedly not the ideal storage location for perfume).

    I should decide which fragrances I’d like to wear over the next couple of weeks and seek them out from their hiding places all over my unit, so that they will be easy to access, too. November 2, 2020 at 7:34am

    • Carla: oooh, Mitsouko, I must bring that to the front of my rotation for these short days! November 2, 2020 at 12:52pm

      • Tourmaline: Hi Carla,

        It’s one of my favourites! I told OnWingsofSaffron that I’d wear it on Monday – an ordinary day, so I did. I’m trying not to save my good perfume for special occasions. November 3, 2020 at 1:43am

        • OnWingsofSaffron: Good for you! November 3, 2020 at 11:25am

          • Tourmaline: Vielen Dank! November 3, 2020 at 6:49pm

    • Peter: Aloha Tourmaline,
      Mitsouko is Lady-in-Waiting to Queen Vol de Nuit! November 3, 2020 at 6:27pm

      • Tourmaline: G’day Pekolo,

        I have Vol de Nuit and it is wonderful.

        For me, Mitsouko is Lady-in-Waiting to L’Heure Bleue! November 3, 2020 at 6:52pm

  • Christine: I would love to win! My next perfume sample will be Tom Ford’s Bitter Peach. My mother and I both loved peach notes and it is a way for me to stay close to her after her death.

    Yes please contact me.

    Good luck everyone! November 2, 2020 at 9:06am

  • Gretchen: Once again, proof that the BdJ community is spectacularly giving and kind! Surely, we will get information on lots of new releases from commenters. I’m rediscovering all the Neela Vermeire releases and love how the newer ones “rhyme” with the originals, and am finally looking into Memo Paris, not having anyone around me who carried them before. I also am investigating the Ormaie line-fell for L’Ivree Bleue yet now I’m struggling with what season works well with it! November 2, 2020 at 9:15am

  • Robyn: It’s getting chilly where I am, so I’ve been leaning on warm, spicy perfumes. Today I’m wearing Tauer “When We Cuddle And I Can Smell My Perfume On Your Clothes”, which is like a cozy, vanilla hug.

    Yes, you may email me. And thank you, Sara, for the giveaway! November 2, 2020 at 9:36am

    • Carla: That name is something else, and I always am looking for a good vanilla. November 2, 2020 at 12:53pm

  • Patricia Maccaro: Love Duchafour’s fragrances, this sounds intriguing. I’m enjoying Ambre Cashmere Intense by Patricia de Nicolai, a wonderful scent for this time of year. Thanks to Sara for such a lovely offering. Yes, please share my email, keeping fingers crossed. November 2, 2020 at 9:44am

    • Carla: Oh thank you for reminding me I have a sample of that! If I had to choose just one perfume line it might be Nicolai. (Her candles and room sprays are so good too.) November 2, 2020 at 12:55pm

  • Bastet: I haven’t tried anything new but recently brought several fall favorites out of storage: Arpege, Mitsouko, Tauer Incense Rose, and Vol de Nuit. Please feel free to contact me. November 2, 2020 at 9:46am

    • Perfumelover67: Thanks Sara and Victoria for such a generous giveaway!

      1. I have recently tried Hiram Green Vivacious, beautiful violet-rose scent. Also Guerlain Iris Torrefie, which has a Dior Homme vibe, but with extra depth.
      Favorite perfumes at the moments are Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin and Gallivant Istanbul. I have been wearing them a lot lately.

      2. Yes, you can contact me via email and share my email with Sara. November 2, 2020 at 11:13am

  • Filomena: What a kind giveaway. Do not enter me in the drawing because I still have a bottle of it. Right now I am wearing Meo Fusciuni’s Varanasi, very cozy for this chilly and extremely windy day. November 2, 2020 at 9:51am

  • MJB: 1 – Crisp fall weather makes me crave Frye boots, leather jackets and the patchouli in 24 Faubourg.
    2 – Yes, please contact me. November 2, 2020 at 9:59am

  • Kneale: What a wonderful giveaway. Thank you, Sara! Recently I tried Diptyque’s Tam Dao and have fallen for this warm, dry sandalwood scent. It also reminds me of cedar pencils. Very autumnal. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a cozy, sweater scent. It doesn’t last long but it’s lovely. Yes, you may contact
    me via email and share my email with Sara. November 2, 2020 at 10:16am

  • Tara C: Another fan of Bertrand Duchaufour – I’ve been wearing his Dzongkha lately. I’ve also been exploring an Australian natural perfume line, Teone Reinthal Natural Perfumes. Her Embers sandalwood scent is delicious.

    You may contact me by email, thanks! November 2, 2020 at 10:29am

  • Katy McReynolds: I have recently fallen in love with the offerings of L’Artisan starting with Passage D’Enfer, a cool incense and the perfect fragrance for contemplation. If you have not tried the offerings of Chris Rusak I would encourage you to do so. This independent perfumer is making really beautiful and interesting fragrances that are at once emotionally arresting and wearable.

    You may contact me by email and share my info if I win! November 2, 2020 at 10:53am

  • Mary: L,Artisan perfumes hold a place in my heart, ny first foray into niche perfumes and a highlight of a journey to Paris. I am currently loving Montserrat, Fazzolari, the plaster note intrigues me, like being present when a great master is painting. Also wearing Tauer A Couer Du Desert, the resinous smoke is beguiling as the days get shorter, darker and colder. I layer either of these over Morrocan jasmine body oil.

    Yes, please contact me. November 2, 2020 at 10:55am

  • Christine Kalleeny: Hello everyone and thank you for the opportunity and privilege of entering this draw. I have been enamored with La Traversee for years now but have not had the opportunity to buy a bottle; it reminds me of lazy afternoons smoking apple sheisha (narguile) along the Nile in Cairo, my home town of origin. I am currently going through a very dark time in my life, a time of deep sorrow and grief and am not currently in a position to splurge on scents! I have been finding comfort of late in rich, warm, gourmand scents, which is not my usual fare. The other day while at a French boutique I came across Tokyo Milk’s Honey and the Moon. The name attracted me as much as the bee on the bottle, however I was still skeptical. To me, it smelled of honey drizzled over molten chocolate (though chocolate is not in the notes) on my skin and I still crave the scent memory often. Another scent that I sampled recently and that I love (but don’t own due to the exorbitant price) is Niral by Neela. I find it is was quite similar to La Traversee, but perhaps more ethereal and refined. Nonetheless, I love La Traversee and one day hope to own a bottle. Alf Shukr or a thousand thanks for this opportunity. November 2, 2020 at 11:38am

  • Carla: Thank you! I really enjoy the Traversee du Bosphore candle. I bought a replacement candle and the name is now Voyage a Constantinople, which is not as romantic. Why the name change? (Also the scent is sweeter.)
    I recently ordered a bottle of l’Histoire d’Eau by Mauboussin because it was so cheap. It is a very good oriental by Christine Nagel. I have been wearing it almost every day these past few weeks! For a newer recommendation I’m not that recent – 2017’s MEM by Bogue. The most beautiful lavender, but very expensive so I have not bought a bottle. I am contenting myself with Caron Pour un Homme instead.
    Thank you you may contact me Victoria! Thank you Sara! November 2, 2020 at 12:51pm

  • Sophia: 1. I discovered DS & Durga’s Amber Kiso a few months ago and bought almost immediately after sampling it. It layers leather, wood, and amber together in a way that really feels like a shaft of sunlight in an old forest, and feels like a perfect accompaniment to changing foliage. Frederic Malle’s En Passant has been getting me through the rainy autumn in Boston — it really does evoke wet petals of lilac. But the newest thing I’ve sampled and paused at is Salome by Papillon Artisan Perfumes. Styrax and oakmoss always smells a bit soapy to me, and this perfume has an undertone of that, but it also feels spiced and cozy, like crawling into a bed with a sachet of herbs, recently washed, but not totally clean. Very good staying in with a book perfume.
    2. Yes you may — and very kind of you to share, Sara. November 2, 2020 at 1:03pm

  • Ellen: My introduction to L’Artisan was and is still a favorite, Passage d’Enfer. As a result, I have acquired three different fragrances from this house over the years. I’m drawn to warm and spicy fragrances, especially as the cooler weather comes around. I’ve recently tried Message in a Perfume by Mark Buxton. Many many thanks Sara for this wonderful and generous giveaway. I’d love to share this with my daughter should I win. You can share my email with Sara. And thank you Victoria for hosting this. November 2, 2020 at 1:06pm

  • Nicoleta Tomsa: Thanks, Sara and Victoria for such a generous giveaway!
    1. I have recently sampled the new line from Ormonde Jayne – La Route de la Soie and I loved Tanger (a sunny, lovely ambery citrus) and Xandria (a beautiful, understated and elegant oud)
    2. Yes, of course, please contact me in case I win. November 2, 2020 at 1:07pm

  • Colleen Boudreau: 1. My favorite perfume right now is Gucci Premiere.
    2. Yes you may! November 2, 2020 at 1:53pm

  • Amy Heath: I have recently tried Stéphane Humbert Lambert 7777’s Soleil de Jeddah and it’s simply divine. It has enormous projection so one or two sprays is quite sufficient. I’ve been tempering the scent with a light application of Swiss Arabian’s Attar Mubakhar to the top of my hands, rub them together as if washing them and then running my hands through my hair. The result is smoky, perfect-for-Fall with a hint of powdery peach. I feel so glamorous wearing this combination! November 2, 2020 at 2:44pm

  • Giovanna: What a kind and generous giveaway!
    1. Still seeking my elusive signature perfume, I try anything “iris” I can. I recently sampled Tom Ford F*ing Fabulous, which was indeed fabulous. Distinctive and not too sweet. Too expensive to become *the one*, though. Not to mention that I would be embarrassed to ask for it by name.
    2. Of course November 2, 2020 at 4:04pm

  • Nancy A.: Awhile back I sampled the private collection of Bottega Veneta. They never seem to fail be it their leather goods or fragrance. The representative generously provided me with the Roman numeric fragrances as was (broken down) that I sampled. They were generous and many compliments. I believe they were oddly enough, #3,6 & 9. You didn’t mention that if memory serves Traversee (L’artisan) was part of the travel locations line. So many tried and true fragrances such as Joy by Patou are no longer in existence and for so many who wore the House of Patou fragrances brings fond memories. L’artisan, too discontinued and/or reformulated so many fragrances that I leaned towards when it was Jean La Porte.
    That said, thank you Sara for your generosity! November 2, 2020 at 4:15pm

  • Micah: It’s far from new, but new to me, I’ve been enjoying Robert Piguet’s Bandit – a great fall scent, reminds me of dirty, wet, rotting grass! In a good way!

    You can contact me and give my email to Sara!

    Thanks Victoria and Sara! November 2, 2020 at 5:12pm

  • Sara: Thank you Sara!. I’m Sara too. I just tried Hiram Green’s Voyage 2019. It’s warm slightly sweet and makes me think of travel. I would love to win. My favorites include Mitsouko, Chergui, Shalimar. My favorite Lartisans are Timbuktu and Seville de laube. November 2, 2020 at 6:49pm

  • Jessica OMahoneySchwartz: I recently have been dabbling in Chris Rusack samples- Beast Mode when I need to move it. Every Ounce of Joy Leaves My Body is just beautiful. I can’t quite put my finger on it- it just is.
    I’m trying to finish up an old Commodity travel size of Moss. It is green and quite pretty.
    You may contact me! November 2, 2020 at 7:01pm

  • Eric Harris: Thank you Sara! TdB had been high on my blind-purchase list for a long time. Duchaufour is one of my favorite perfumers.

    I’ve been obsessed with Talc de IUNX recently. If No 18 was too weird, Talc’s rice, iris, and ambrette is sensuous but light. Get it while you can!

    Victoria, you can of course share my email. November 2, 2020 at 7:24pm

    • Brittany: 1) L’Instant de Guerlain. A little goes a long way in my experience though.
      2) Yes please and thank you! November 3, 2020 at 12:14am

  • Mridula Koshy: Hello Im in India and its been very hard to try perfumes recently. But Im still enjoying my Tuberose Criminelle and Bois de Violette. Im using both sparingly because who knows when next I will refill. I do have a US address so please enter me in the draw. Thanks Sara and Bois de Jasmin.

    And yes to question 2. November 2, 2020 at 11:40pm

  • Yve Spiders: Wow thank you Sara! I recently tried this fragrance and fell in love with it.

    Recently I’ve tried Daim Blond from Serge Lutens. What a lovely, suedey iris and apricot.

    Yes, feel free to share my email with Sara. November 2, 2020 at 11:51pm

  • Karima: 1. I have not tried anything new lately, but remember my smelling TdB in a store years ago and being smitten. Right now I am rediscovering my old bottle of Seville a l’Aube, the perfume that got me started on niche scents.
    2. Yes, yes, yes to sharing my email with Sara. November 3, 2020 at 3:12am

  • Stacey: 1. Perfumes I am loving at the moment include Dior Homme, Hermes Terre D’Hermes, I just received samples of them to try based on Bois de Jasmin recent blog post “Three Men’s Fragrances for Women : Modern Classics”. I’m enjoying them both.

    2. Yes you may contact me. November 3, 2020 at 10:47am

  • OnWingsofSaffron: I bought a small bottle of Dior‘s Ambre nuit and the body cream to go with it on Ebay: must say, I rather like it though I‘m no great fan of the amber genre! Then, for a measly 15 Euros, I bought a 3/4 full bottle of Caron‘s Eau de réglisse. Even though it smells of commercial lemon pudding—a bit on the artificial side—it nonetheless is quite yummy!
    As I‘m in Germany, I hope the bottle will go to a lover of L‘Artisan! November 3, 2020 at 11:34am

  • Toni NB: Yes! I would like to enter the giveaway.
    I received a sample of Penhaligon’s Halfeti from a friend. I didn’t realize it was a gentleman’s fragrance until I did a little research on the website. I very much like this scent; it’s complex and “complicated” based on the description from Penhaligon. Head notes of grapefruit, bergamot, cypress to heart notes of saffron, jasmine and cumin to finally the base notes of oud, leather and sandalwood. I am purposefully omitting the many other notes (yes, there’s more) and including only the ones that I detect best on me. Many of us have likely tried men’s fragrances before, but if you haven’t I would recommend exploring them. This may be a good place to start.
    Yes, you may contact me.
    Thank you for the generous giveaway and good luck to all. November 3, 2020 at 3:28pm

  • Joseph: I’ve been rooting through my neglected minis and samples as of late. One new(ish) discovery amongst the these relocs has been Dior Joy. Even though I don’t think it’s particular original perfume, I just like how it’s smells. Also, I needed a detox after overdosing on one spray of Theo Fennell!!!

    Delighted to have my email shared with Sara if I’m the lucky one. Many thanks to Sara for your generosity. Best of luck everyone! November 3, 2020 at 6:11pm

  • Peter: Mahalo nui loa to Sara for her generous offer. I do not need to be considered because of the overseas postage to Hawaii.

    I did want to share about my newest purchase. I saved up for Tubereuse Criminelle and it’s worth every penny. Victoria gave such a compelling review. It now has pride of place besides Carnal Flower and Atelier Cafe Tuberosa. November 3, 2020 at 6:23pm

    • Tourmaline: I can’t wait to try it (and the others) in the shops! November 3, 2020 at 7:12pm

  • Fazal: Chloe Nomade edp has really impressed me. Recently, I have been getting back-ups of the vintage perfumes that I suspect will become scarcer and scarcer down the road. No, actually I have been doing this for few years now and now I am particularly focused on Patou as you may know that Patou does not make perfumes anymore.

    Of course, you can share my contact info. November 3, 2020 at 11:21pm

  • rickyrebarco: Hi all, my favorite new perfume finds are Jo Malone Vetiver and Golden Vanilla, a very nice deep vetiver and good vanilla. I also recently discovered Widian perfumes and purchased Widian Black II, a gorgeous somewhat gourmand vanilla. It’s divine, IMHO.

    Thanks for the giveaway and yes, you may email me if I win and share my contact info. I’m in the USA. November 3, 2020 at 11:35pm

  • Karen A: What a generous giveaway! Thank you to Sara and Victoria for facilitating it. Please do not enter me but I wanted to share about a new purchase, Ormonde Jayne’s Woman. It is quite beautiful but it does wear very close – a lovely choice for autumn and colder weather.
    Brought out my Coco extrait today and highly recommend it as another cool/cold weather fragrance.
    Good luck to everyone! November 4, 2020 at 12:23am

  • Hilde: Since I was a child I am intrigued by the smell of incense and myrrh at funeralls, so I was looking for Caron Parfum Sacré – after I had read Victoria’s comment – but I can’t find it.
    It is only recently that I became to know L’Artisan Parfumeur. A few weeks ago L’Artisan sold some perfumes in promotion and I bought Mirabilis, which notes are composed of ambrox, incense and musk. I am pretty surprised of it.

    Another perfume I recently bought is Rochas Tocade. It was the manager of the perfume store who advised it to me. At the first smell I didn’t like it: too much vanilla I thought. But she gave me a decant and I tried it a few times at home. Perfume is something like a music composition. Sometimes you have to listen to it several times before you get in love with it. Guess what? I got in love with Tocade so much that the last weeks I have worn it almost every day.

    Some other magnificent recent purchases are Kenzo Jungle and Tom Ford Black Orchid (the black and the gold edition).

    On my preference list is Guerlain Habit Rouge, which I tried on a sample and smells amazing to me.

    I read the comment by Victoria on Traversée du Bosphore and I would be glad to have it in my collection. Unfortunately on the official site of L’Artisan Parfumeur, it is not sold any more. Because I live in Europe, I am eager to pay the cost of expedition to Sara, in case I should be selected.

    Many thanks in advance.
    You may share my e-mail adress with Sara. November 4, 2020 at 4:07am

  • Heather: My new favorite fund is new to me, but an old classic I’m sure more than a few of you are familiar with. First by Van Cleef Arpels. It’s amazing, it so fresh and shimmering. It’s very reminiscent of Chanel No.5 to me. I would have normally taken a risk because the price was so reasonable, I thought how good could it be? Now it’s a favorite.

    And yes you may email me. Thanks for this generous offer. November 4, 2020 at 11:01am

  • Heather McKay: My new favorite fund is new to me, but an old classic I’m sure more than a few of you are familiar with. First by Van Cleef Arpels. It’s amazing, it so fresh and shimmering. It’s very reminiscent of Chanel No.5 to me. I would have normally taken a risk because the price was so reasonable, I thought how good could it be? Now it’s a favorite.

    And yes you may email me. Thanks for this generous offer! November 4, 2020 at 11:01am

  • Calrayo: Please enter me, and you may use my email contact if I win. I have a small candle of Traversee, and I’ve just about used it up. It’s so delightful! I recently bought a bunch of samples of different Amouage perfumes to familiarize myself with the house and have been enjoying these big scents with abandon while working from home. Lyric Woman is a beautiful, elegant, powerhouse. November 4, 2020 at 2:49pm

  • Robin L. Ott: I recently bought a bottle of Arquiste Anima Dulcis and am loving it. I had a hard time choosing between the Anima Dulcis & By Kilian Noir Aphrodisiaque!
    Yes you may email me! November 4, 2020 at 2:52pm

    • Roxann Wiebe: I love Anima Dulcis, put it away for the summer, but time to bring it out. November 4, 2020 at 8:10pm

  • Yasmina: I want to recommend Poudre Imperiale by Sous le Manteau. The best way I can describe it is fresh powder. There is cardamom and pepper here for spice and benzoin and musk for comfort. It smells very natural – no screechiness. Excited to be in this draw and yes you can email me November 4, 2020 at 5:53pm

  • Cybele: Thank you for your generosity! I recently enjoyed Seine Amoureuse by Jean-Michel Duriez, Baiser Fou by Cartier and Mizensir Poudre d’Or. Feel free to email me. Thanks! November 4, 2020 at 7:01pm

  • Roxann Wiebe: How very kind of Sara. I love this fragrance, just can’t afford to buy everything I want, but this one has always stayed in my mind. I love when I come across a fragrance that keeps drawing my wrist to my nose. The most recent that caused that reaction is “Italian Leather” by Memo. Feel free to e mail me if I am the lucky one. November 4, 2020 at 8:08pm

  • Katie: Big thank you to Sara for sharing her perfume and to Victoria arranging this give away! My fall recommendation is Mojave by Hi Wildflower. If you are covid-bound in a cold climate and looking for a fragrance vacation to the American Southwest—look no further. The sage, palo santo, and eucalyptus are the openers before it drys down into a woody/leather scent. Yes, sharing my email address is fine. November 4, 2020 at 8:43pm

  • John Luna: Thank you Sara and Victoria for this generous offer! I am interested and please do contact me by email, but I am not writing this for myself but for my sister. She is based in Wisconsin, and having a tough time right now as her asthma makes her especially vulnerable to the pandemic; fortunately, her employer has allowed her to be more involved with shipping orders (she works at a spice retailer) than storefront sales in a region where people commonly refuse to wear masks. Growing up, my older sister was the storyteller in our family. As a teenager, she wrote novels that typically featured many exotic twists (science fantasy and romance were common themes) and read them to my mother and me and sometimes my friends as well. Later in college, she travelled widely as a graduate student in archeology, coming back from digs in Tunisia, Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Tukey and Spain (her specialty was Islamic art and architecture) with souvenirs and stories (my first question always, and the source of many conversations: “what did you eat?”)

    Half a lifetime later, she is a mother of two grown children who has returned to writing and to support her efforts, taken a job selling spices (which includes regularly sending me wonderful things like really good saffron, Ceylon cinnamon, and dry guajillo chillies). Unlike her self-indulgent younger brother (me) she tends not to indulge herself in perfume, but I think she would find the story behind Traversée du Bosphore irresistible. It would be a wonderful surprise.

    Speaking of wonderful surprises, the new fragrance I tried this past week was Molinard’s Patchouli EDP (2015). I’m not what made me ordered the decant, as patchouli tends to turn into humble soil on me and my preferences tend to lean towards classic masculine compositions like Guerlain Vetiver or Eau Sauvage rather than unisex niche eaux de parfums like Molinard’s lovely purple bottles. I wore it to bed and, anyway, wow; I have not been this mesmerized by a ‘day after’ aura of a fragrance in years… A warm, sensual, almost animalic musk (much like Kiehl’s great Original Musk, which always makes me think of plunging my nose into a lover’s head of hair) lingers under a patchouli that is by turns velvety, chocolate, fruity and… kind of ancient. I’d never understood the church-like connections some people make with patchouli until now. I thought it smelled like a Byzantine cathedral built atop the ruins of a pagan temple, including the cold mineral dirt of the catacombs…
    Anyway, try it! And thanks again for the lovely offer. November 5, 2020 at 1:36am

  • Maya: Thank you for the opportunity to win this lovely perfume-please enter me. During the cooler weather I gravitate towards dry woody compositions and more frilly and rich flowers. Here are my current favorites:
    1. I just got a travel bottle of The Different Company’s Bois d’Iris which I find suits a walk in the woods during this time of year perfectly. It reminds me of the scent of dirt after the rain mixed with the aroma of decomposing leaves.
    2. Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin is rich and complex and suits this cooler weather. I wear it and can imagine sitting in a heavy club chair by a fire with a thick book on my lap and a glass of spiced wine.
    3. Chanel 31 Rue Cambon- this is another perfume I would not wear in the summer but adore during this time of year. I find that it has an intellectual facet to it that works beautifully during the fall but would be totally lost during the hot and humid summer.
    4. Honorable mention to Incense Kyoto and Tocca’s Colette. Both have a lovely, natural dry down that suits a warm sweater.
    Thank you again! November 5, 2020 at 7:06am

  • Gauss: 1. I am really enjoying Hanae Mori’s Butterfly right now – it’s a bit weird and intense, but somehow feels perfect for the times.
    2. yes, of course! Thank you for the opportunity. November 5, 2020 at 11:31am

  • krista: What a kind giveaway! I’ve recently tried J-Scent Paper Soap, which smells so exactly like a smooth, new, white bar of fancy hotel soap that I can’t stop thinking about it. I’ve added it to my FB list, which is already too long!

    Yes, pleas use my email. Thank you so much!! November 5, 2020 at 1:35pm

  • Elke Schmeling: Lovely giveaway, thank you Sara! You may contact me via email.
    I don’t think I’ve anything that’s terribly new to the market, but I am very smitten with une nuit a doha by SHL 777. It’s supposed to make you think of a night in the Middle East; it makes me think of the high Sierras in California. It’s just such a lovely immortelle/tobacco combo that’s soft and cuddly. I am planning to try more from the line.
    Thanks again! November 5, 2020 at 2:56pm

  • pj: 1.sadly due to covid have no had much chance to sample any new perfumes. I miss visiting sephora or nordstrom’s to sniff. so hard to do with a mask! My fave perfume are Paris and Knowing.
    2. yes contact me and share with Sara November 5, 2020 at 5:08pm

  • Jean: 1. I haven’t had the opportunity to do much sampling since the pandemic began, but I’ve been enjoying a few samples that I received by mail recently — CDG Blackpepper and CDG Concrete.

    2. Yes, please contact me by e-mail and share with Sara.

    Thank you! November 6, 2020 at 1:30am

  • Veronika Raupach: Hello dear PerfumeLovers, my latest discoveries have been Musk by Etro and a sample from High Frequenzy by Initio. I wear it all the time.

  • Nadja: Thank you so much to both of you for having this giveaway!
    1) I recently samples Jean Patou’s 1000, and it’s lush boldness felt like the perfect counterbalance to this year of uncertainty and worry (and yoga pants).
    2) Please do contact me and share my email with Sara if I am selected. November 6, 2020 at 10:33am

  • Notturno 7: I just saw this generous offer!!THIS has been on my wish list ever since generous Aurora Borealis from BdJ community sent me a sample long ago and this would be my next buy.
    I love it, the spicy / sweet aspect of it and the drydown. Aaahhhh.
