Friday Perfume Arrival

No need to say a word. Looking at it is just enough excitement! So happy to finally have it with me. I’ve been wanting to own Eau de Gloire for a couple of months.

Let me say it again – Parfum d’Empire is one of the most enjoyable perfume brands for me. Their perfume are complex, interesting, offering a wide variety of different olfactory experiences. What more can a perfumista want?

    Congratulations, Lucas! So you got your lavender…and I went back to your review – pipe tobacco! I HAVE to go back to the site and try to get the discovery set. Thanks for your offer in NST as I mentioned my troubles before with the site but if I’m meant to get it I will 🙂

    Now on to work for me (from the comfort of my home) — the area is still trying to recover from Superstorm Sandy and it will take a while to get back to a new normal.

      Thank you sweetheart! I would say that I got 1/2 of my lavender. I need to find one more that would be more lavender as Eau de Gloire is a lavender for a short time, it’s mainly pipe tobacco.
      If you still have problem with processing your order at their website remember that my offer still stands and I can get this set for you.
      Have a calm day at work. I hope people will be able to overcome obstacles after Sandy.

        Yay, I think it finally worked. I had to use Safari instead of Firefox and my Visa instead of Mastercard…go figure. Now, I can’t wait to try this line! I had a sample of Azemour Les Orangers but I have several unmarked samples that I’m afraid I have to chuck because I don’t recall what they are except L’AP Seville a l’Aube which scent I know very well and love.

        • lucasai says:

          Fabulous! That was a riddle but you made it girl! I hope you’ll enjoy all those samples. Their presentation (each vial in a pouch) is very appealing.
          Which samples are you afraid of? Or did you mean you’re afraid of the number of unsniffed samples you have?

      • hajusuuri says:

        I just re-read what I wrote and I wasn’t clear. Some of my spray samples got separated from the cards with the perfume names and now I have 5 without labels. I hate not knowing what I am spraying on and I would rather just throw them in the trash than risk something I don’t like (I know, I could just wash it off but the not knowing what it was that I am washing off is also just as disconcerting) or if I like it a lot, I would forever regret not knowing the name of it.

        In any case, I know for sure that one of the unmarked ones is Azemour Les Orangers (from LuckyScent). Instead of throwing them out, I’ll just spray a little bit on a test strip and sniff so that I can rescue the Azemour Les Orangers. I still have the empty dab via so I can compare and know for sure that I am rescuing the right spray sample 🙂

        Now I have a labeler so hopefully I will never end up in this situation again!

        • lucasai says:

          Oh! That’s painful. I imagine how concerning it is to smell something you like and now now knowing the name because its label got separated. Azemour is very specific, juicy orange chypre so I’m sure you’ll secognize it (and you’ll have a reference sample soon)
          A labeler you say? I do all my labels by hand, or print the names and then cut and stick.

          I’ve seen your comment at Perfume Posse. Are you going Swapmania? I am!

      • hajusuuri says:

        I will be organizing what I have to swap over the next 2 weeks and will likely participate; however, if we continue to have fuel shortages here, I will skip it because that is just another trip (to the post office) that is unnecessary. Here’s hoping that most of the basic infrastructure concerns are resolved shortly!

    I am very pleased for you Lucas! It sounds lovely and the bottle is gorgeous. The color reminds me of my lamented YSL Eau Libre (not to be confused with their current offering to which they have given the same name for some strange reason).

    Caron do a lavender called L’Homme, I believe. I expect you already know it. Lots of perfumistas seem to like it.

    The Eau de Gloire seems very suitable for your contemplative weekend.

    • lucasai says:

      Thank you Jillie! Parfum d’Empire sleek column bottles have a great presentation. And greenish juice is lovely.

      I own a bottle of that Caron, Pour un Homme de Caron (I think you meant this one) I bought it blind, liked it but now I hate it.

    Congrats to you Lucas! I hope you enjoy your bottle. I got the discovery set and I’ve been stuck/hung up/ hooked on Equistrius and can’t seem to get myself to move on and try the others. For really big lavender have you tried Serge Lutens Gris Clair?
    Did I mention how much I love Equistrius and need a full bottle of it? LOL.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

    • lucasai says:

      I will enjoy it a lot, really! Great you got Parfum d’Empire discovery set, it’s a great one. No need to tell about Equistrius, I like that one too.

      Yes I tried Gris Clair but it quickly turns acidic on me which I don’t like.

      Have a wonderful weekend too!

    Congrats Lucas, Parfum D’Empire is a wonderful house.

    Congratulations Lucas, my dear friend 🙂 Enjoy it

    It’s so much fun when you finally get a bottle you have been dying to have. Enjoy every drop of that.

  7. Undina says:

    Congratulation on your new bottle! I liked this one when I tested it but I like several others from the line even more – so I’ll start with them 🙂

    For lavender I like Brin de Réglisse from Hermes.

    • lucasai says:

      Honestly my favourite is Iskander but I wanted to acquire one I could wear immediately. I find Iskander more spring suitable so went for Eau de Gloire which is perfect for autumn and winter.

      Brin de Reglisse? Got to go, got to investigate. Thanks for your suggestion
