Happy International Chocolate Day!

We're celebrating with our usual open thread: talk about anything you like — the perfume you’re wearing today, your favorite perfume with a chocolate note, whatever.

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

The pre-splitmeet poll, episode 2 http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/09/13/the-pre-splitmeet-poll-episode-2/ http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/09/13/the-pre-splitmeet-poll-episode-2/#comments Sat, 13 Sep 2014 14:16:07 +0000 http://www.nstperfume.com/?p=116116 orchid

Episode 2 of the splitmeet will be next weekend! Since the splitmeet takes a bit more "arranging" than the swapmeet, we're going to start off with a pre-splitmeet poll. There are three questions:

1. Does anyone object to raising the number of splits you can host from 2 to 3? Or are there any other rules we should revisit? (You can see the rules for episode 1 here.)

2. Are there any fragrances you wish someone else would split (in other words, you'd buy a share if someone else hosted)?

3. Are there any fragrances you'd love to split, but you'd like to find out if anyone is interested? (I would not necessarily be discouraged, by the way, if you don't get enough interest today...)]]> orchid

Top 10 Fall Fragrances 2014 http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/09/12/top-10-fall-fragrances-2014/ http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/09/12/top-10-fall-fragrances-2014/#comments Fri, 12 Sep 2014 16:22:53 +0000 http://www.nstperfume.com/?p=115389 Cold Colours

We pick the dates for the seasonal top 10 posts far in advance, and sometimes that works out fine. This year, it feels odd to be writing about fall so early — we've had strange weather the past few months, so while it stopped feeling like a proper summer here sometime in late July, it still doesn't feel anything like fall. Here are ten fragrances I might wear if it did feel like fall, or that you could wear if there's already a chill in the air where you are. Do add your own fall favorites in the comments!

CB I Hate Perfume Burning Leaves: The perfect way to get into the mood for fall even if the weather won't cooperate, and extra-nice if you live in a place (as I do) where all the leaves get composted (as they should be) instead of burned (I do miss the smell). The last time I wrote the Top 10 of Fall was back in 2008, and I included Burning Leaves on that post too. Some things never change...
