Perfume Chat Room, February 14

Welcome to the weekly Perfume Chat Room, perfumistas! I envision this chat room as a weekly drop-in spot online, where readers may ask questions, suggest fragrances, tell others their SOTD, comment on new releases or old favorites, and respond to each other. The perennial theme is fragrance, but we can interpret that broadly — I’ve been known to write on this blog about biryani, one of my favorite dishes to eat and one I am still learning to make! (If you have a great recipe for it, please share!).

This is meant to be a kind space, so please try not to give or take offense, and let’s all agree to disagree when opinions differ. In fragrance as in life, your mileage may vary! YMMV.

Today is February 14, Happy Valentine’s Day! What scent are you wearing? I’m in Papillon Perfumes’ Bengale Rouge, and I’m in love with it. You?

  1. I am wearing Memo Winter Palace for the NST project – something I am smitten with. Would wear it more often if I wasn’t consciously trying to wear more of my collection. If only it wasn’t so darned expensive; thankfully I have a decant from hajusuuri which will most certainly be drained this year.

  2. Happy Valentine’s Day!
    I am also wearing Bengale Rouge! I’ve been wearing it often this past month and love it more with each wearing. My sweet elderly cat passed away unexpectedly this week, and this perfume will be my scent association for him.

  3. I’m in love with Bengale Rouge too, though I’m not wearing it today. I’m in a cloud of Teint de Neige instead. I love this one and it plays nicely in crowds- I’m working later. Happy Valentine’s to you all.

  4. Valentine Day scent was Anubis, 3 sprays because in paranoid fashion, I under spray everything. Mr B made a nice comment this time!
    Perfume is a comfort at the moment, my Aged Mother is in hospital and not expected to come out again, the waiting is terrible.


  5. Oops! Just realized that I left my comment in the worng place!
    Pour Un Gimme again
    Waiting for my parents who are coming up from the city.
    We will stop at the bakery near the train station, pick up local coffee beans and treats, head to my house so they can see their furry great granddaughter and I will send them home with a bagful of samples 💜

  6. I found a tiny sample of Frederic Malle Portrait of a Lady, so beautiful. I’ve heard many post favorable comments about this perfume. I am very impressed! I smell a sweet rose with patchouli and sandalwood.
