Do Le Labo fragrances have to be refrigerated?
by Cocopah | Perfumes & Brands
...Hi,The only time I have kept a perfume in the fridge was Smile & ShineSmile & Shine and only because the perfumer C. Laudamiel recommended in an interview to do so for the reasons you mentioned. After a while I put it back with my other bottles on the shelves bc fridge space is limited and, honestly, it felt like nonsense to me. The other time I heard someone recommending to keep a perfume refrigerated was Herbert Stricker during a YT video. He recommended to keep a citrus perfume in the fridge during summer to enhance the “refreshing” experience. This reason makes more sense to me as it’s only for a sensory reason. IMHO: To put cosmetic products in the fridge to “keep them fresh” has been recommended before for products like facial moisturizers, facial serums, nail polish (yes, can you believe it?!), and now it’s perfume.

OUD fragrances "for dummies"
...Hi,I will try to answer your questions to the best of my limited experience with note. I am not an expert on this topic just someone who enjoys the note of oud a lot. I don't care if it's natural or synthetic, can't tell the difference so it doesn't matter to me.-Why to use it? The first oud fragrance that I purchased was Rasasi Boruzz Asrar Indonesia. At first I didn't understand the note, it was very challenging but for some strange reason, the smell of oud gave me a feeling of contentment and relaxation. From then on, I could not let go of it. Of course my spouse complained heavily that I smelled like manure and cow urine. He grew up in a farm with cows, chickens and pigs so his opinion is based on lived experience. It is true, oud smells like hay and manure but I still spray myself. -When to use it? Whenever I need to feel comforted and contained. If I have a stressful day in front of me, I will use something with a noticeable oud note to feel cocooned. I don't care much about the time of the day, setting or season. Is it cold outside: oud. Is it warm: oud! Other days I will find myself "longing" for the smell of oud and I will reach for an oud fragrance. -How to use it? I am a conservative sprayer, 2 sprays max. I bring my sample with me to re-apply. I spray my clothes mostly. With oils, I rubbed them on my clothes.-What to buy and why? I cannot tell you what you should buy because when it comes to oud fragrances, I consider it a personal journey of discovery and learning. More than "what to buy" I would suggest "What to try". Others before me have already mentioned outstanding fragrances like The Night or Oudh Infini and I will add: Rasasi Boruzz line, Hind al Oud Sheik A, Ahojas. Carolina Herrera´s Oud couture, Dior Oud Rosewood, Bortnikoff Oud Cologne, and BTV Nemer. Best wishes,C.

Papier d´Armenie
by Cocopah | Off Topic
...Today I got a booklet of Papier d´Armenie in Rose as a present. I have heard about this type of perfume product before but never got to actually see one until now, and was I surprised by it! First, because for being a thin and delicate paper sheet the fragrance is strong! I can only imagine what happens when you burn it. The second surprise was to find out that Francis Kurkdjian had composed this rose scent.
