Hey beautiful! My favorite PdN fragrance is Sacre Bleue!, followed by Maharinih, a fragrance I thought would get "mo' love," but I guess that's what happens with this line. Also, Sacre Bleue! Legere is wonderful, too. It's the lighter version of the original, but unlike most lighter versions, this one is light without being "clean," retaining all the best parts of the original in a sheer, enveloping veil of lovely. Hugs and love!

My computer has crashed, so I am writing you briefly on another one. My favorite PdNs are Vanille Tonka, Maharadjah, and Baladin. PS I THOUGHT I saved everything important on my computer before it crashed, but apparently a bunch of it didn't come through (at least on the CD; there's a memory stick at home that I hope did better). The computer guy says he can save everything, so here's hoping!!:((

Duh, Tom You work on the internet, it's called a Google search!

I'd love to whiff some of these- where are they available?

Divina August 28, 2007

I can't speak of a favorite as such, because I do not have one I'm afraid. There is a good amount of admiration there, yes, but no love. There's too much fruit in the whole line for me to be swept off my feet :(

I adore Balle de Match. Also Fig Tea, Eau Exotique, Eau d'Ete, Balkis Light, Vie de Chateau, and probably forgetting something. Great line.

Jamie August 28, 2007

Good morning! Love Balkis and New York (a men's fragrance - but I wear it). J.

Definitely on my next trip! But I'll do my decision-making research back home so I won't be overwhelmed again!

The only PdN I've been tempted by is the Figue Tea, and now more so after reading the posts above. Was seriously craving a sample as a potential hot humid NYC in summer scent but hmm, think I've missed the boat on the season. Perhaps for next summer ....

Patty, I would have predicted Balle de Match - to me it smells sorta like a tarter Eva, and I know you like that sort of scent. I've been slowly eating my decant of Balkis Light while it's still warm, and I like the Fig-Tea and Maharanih. BTW it's not that the Fig-Tea is so especially brilliant or cutting edge. It's a summer tea comfort scent. What's so cool about it is it seems like one of those nice things that's gonna last maybe 20 minutes, only it sticks around all day. Anything that can survive on Maria and Louise has some sticking power!;) Woman, cannot BELIEVE you're trying those on with Arabie, that's not an even fight!

Vie de chateau remains at the top of my favorite PdN's (even after gassing out my office mate). I also really like Figue Tea (Hi, Maria!-thanks for both those great Tauer reviews-awaiting their releases), and am curious how VT will be in cooler weather-it's nice now, but seems like it'll suit sweaters better. Dinazad...must buy Montales...at the shop. A lot cheaper than anywhere else, and they'll custom increase the oils in any scent if you've got eater skin like mine. I loved the SA, Pierre (not senior). Next trip?

Marina August 28, 2007

I like so many of hers. Vanille Tonka, Vie de Chateau and Eau d'Ete are probably the most favorite.

Please don't hate me. Please! Last Saturday I took a daytrip to Paris (not my fault it's close enough for that) to meet up with a MUA friend from the States (and one from Paris). Completely idiotic thing to do, and not exactly for free either, but there you are: I did it, and it was fun, and the girls were lovely, sweet and charming. Among others, we visited PdN, and I found a big fat lemming there: Balkis. Smells like going berry-picking: green and dry at first, with the barest hint of raspberry, but then sun-warmed raspberry takes over, gets sweeter and riper and more mouth-watering by the millisecond and ends up as a raspberry millefeuille with powdered sugar over it, caramelized in those nifty grill stripes.... I sprayed it on mid-afternoon, and it was still gorgeous next morning. And I don't usually do sweet. My favourite, hyper-elegant, Cary-Grantesque (or Gene Tierney-esque) New York came home with me, by the way - Ms de Nicolai offers her scents in 20, 50 and 100 ml, and the 30 ml is affordable even if you've just splurged insanely on a trip. Oh, and I got to know Odalisque, a sensual lily of the valley. Such things exist. Went to Montale's as well: cool and clean, like a zen pharmacy, but you get drunk on aoud and roses there. Absolutely sozzled. I NEED me some Montales!!!! Ah well, maybe next year....

Lee August 28, 2007

My favourite PdN at the moment is the Havane room spray. Can't get enough of that thing. Otherwise, it's Balle de Match and New York - I should really spend some more time with Baladin etc, which I don't know at all. I didn't like Nicolai pour Homme much...

Maria August 28, 2007

Number One is very pretty. I hadn't tried it for a while, so I went to put some on when I read your review. It's prettily dignified, delicate. I especially like the orange blossom in it. I'll have to let Louise know in the morning how long it lasted. How does one choose among white florals? :-? Drat. I'll have to add Balle de Match to my to-try list. I wonder how long THAT one would last. My favorite PdN is Sacrebleu. But I keep saying that. :d
