  1. Losing my fraggin mind ...

    It started today with Aimez Moi- a total 180! First (a few days ago), it was okay. Then I liked it. Then I loved it. Then - I hated it. I think the brief love stage may have been influenced by some killer reviews- I can be quite impressionable at times.

    After deciding today for the fourth time in a row- most firmly this time- that I dislike L'Instant for its heavy candy sweetness- I decided that Aimez Moi has the same too sweet quality which I find unpleasant. Though Aimez Moi ...
  2. Visit for Women by Azzaro

    Meh. Opening notes were nice, a not-too-sweet incense or woods greeting. Like a nice foyer in an expensive house. Then I was shown to the ladies room, where someone had just used loads of Aquanet hairspray. Yuck. Crikey. You'd think in a house this expensive they could afford better hairspray. I shan't be visiting here again.

  3. Ripped off on ebay part 2 / Black Orchid

    So based on what I considered essentially a "teaser" of Black Orchid I got a small (expensive!) sampler.

    Wow. Oh wow. My nose has entered heaven. Again.

    My tester is a non aerosol vial. I didn't think it mattered except I saw a whole thread devoted to "how to apply from a vial" I tip the vial directly onto my skin. There's not enough there to worry about contamination. The tiniest drop practically brought tears of joy to my eyes. Walked ...

  4. holiday necessities

    Off to New England for two weeks and after teeth-gnashing and anxiety about the heat and humidity (I can do heat; humidity not so much) have decided to take decants of a pair of vetivers (Encre Noire, Guerlain Vetiver), two citrus/greens (MetB Green, Jo Malone Lime), and what I fondly think of as fragrant tropical mud, Manoumalia, because for sure that one blooms beautifully in the heat.

    Am wearing Daim Blond on the midnight flight, though. Hmm, cozy.
  5. Alessandro Dell'Acqua

    Nice. The opening blast is reminding me very strongly of another scent I can't quite put my finger on...doesn't that just drive you crazy? Maybe it's Chanel No5, not sure.
    Anyway, I get a strong musk under the initial notes, and it settles into a nice sandalwood/incense base. This is my second spritz of my sample, and the opening notes are lasting a great deal longer this time around. Interesting. Also, I only sprayed a tiny squirt from a sample spritzer, and the strength is fairly strong. ...
