The usual open thread: talk about anything you like — the perfume you’re wearing today, the last fragrance you almost bought but didn't, whatever.

Or, ask a question about fragrance, then see if anyone else has asked a question that you can answer…

Friedemodin Vertine, Jardin Mystique, Rosee de Nuit, Feu Follet ~ short perfume reviews http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/11/21/friedemodin-vertine-jardin-mystique-rosee-de-nuit-feu-follet-short-perfume-reviews/ http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/11/21/friedemodin-vertine-jardin-mystique-rosee-de-nuit-feu-follet-short-perfume-reviews/#comments Fri, 21 Nov 2014 19:06:46 +0000 http://www.nstperfume.com/?p=119296 Friedemodin brand image

Friedemodin is a relatively new independent perfume brand created by Nina Friede and Elisabeth Modin (get it?), "two friends united in London by [their] fascination and love of perfumery." The first Friedemodin collection, Jardin Mystique, is designed to evoke the scents of a garden from dawn to dusk. The four fragrances in this collection — Vertine, Jardin Mystique, Rosée de Nuit and Feu Follet — were developed for Friedemodin by perfumer François Robert.

Moving from lightest to deepest: Vertine, a fresh green fragrance, includes notes of peppermint, basil, galbanum, fig leaf, tea rose, cedarwood and musk. For me, at least, it's hard to see the name "Vertine" and not think of Balmain Vent Vert, the classic green galbanum fragrance...

Friday scent of the day 11/21 http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/11/21/friday-scent-of-the-day-1121/ http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/11/21/friday-scent-of-the-day-1121/#comments Fri, 21 Nov 2014 16:35:34 +0000 http://www.nstperfume.com/?p=119367 Carthusia Profumi

It's Friday! Unsniffed Friday, no less. Our community project: wear a perfume you bought before you'd smelled it, and tell us how it worked out for you.

If you've never bought anything unsniffed, congratulations, and do chime in with your scent of the day anyway.

I'm wearing Carthusia Mediterraneo, the first fragrance I ever bought unsniffed. I loved it right away, and I still love it (I've had to replace the original bottle), but I've since learned the hard way that I'm really not very good at buying unsniffed (the first unsniffed bottle I laid my eyes on when I went searching through my cabinet was the barely touched 100 ml bottle of Hermès Un Jardin après la Mousson)...
