    Autumn Scents - recommend the ones you love

    Hi everyone, Autumn is approaching. I am looking for a floral autumnal perfume that evoke the image of yellow, golden colored flowers...... Any suggestions?
  3. Hi everyone, Nowadays I became interested in refined fragile flowers..... but the ones which make you think victorian ladies with laces, chiffons, silks in a romantique aura... The Lady of Shalott came to my mind at first, but it is a bit aquatic. I dont want a perfume with an aquatic base. It should be only flowers. Any suggestions?

    What BPAL would this fictional character wear?

    Hi everyone, Yesterday I watched a french film called "L'appartement" in which Monica Belluci and Vincent Cassel are starring. Lisa character which Monica Belluci is playing affected me very much. There is a scene where Lisa makes a phone call and then leaves. Max (Vincent Cassel) goes to the place where she had make a phone call and smells her perfume. What could be the perfume of Lisa in that scene ?(thinking the atmosphere there and her red shoes) I add a link for this scene. (1.10-3.10) My link I also highly recommend this film

    Red flowers

    I also think that these ones could be described as red flower perfumes LOVE-LIES-BLEEDING: The velvet flower. A lush, thick, luxuriant bloom, bold and red VERSAILLES: Grand, courtly and robust: a glittering, golden scent that would do Louis XIV proud. Gilded red and gold citrus with amber, ruby roses, jasmine and orris. Bruised Violet Compound also gives me the impression of dark red violets.

    The search for the perfect Violet....

    I haven't smell Lucretia but Raven is a musky violet. They have also common notes like iris. Lucretia sounds a bit woody floral.

    What BPAL would this fictional character wear?

    I really love the movie "Pulp Fiction". Mia is the icon for femme-fatale style in my opininon. Here are my suggestions: Lamia: "Deadly elegance: pale orchid, vanilla amber, black currant, white peach, champaca, coconut, Arabian myrrh, Burmese vetiver, and oude." Vixen: "Lascivious, flirtatious, and vampy as hell. A true heartbreaker’s perfume. The innocence of orange blossom tainted by the beguiling scents of ginger and patchouli." Wanda: "Wanda is the breathtakingly beautiful sable-wrapped marble queen of Sacher-Masoch's fantasies. Her scent is a deep red merlot with a faint hint of leather, sexual musk and body heat over crushed roses, violets and myrtle. " Whip: "Agony and ecstasy: black leather and damp red rose."
