    En Avion (I tried this one for about three days consecutively I like it. It comes on a bit strong at first and then settles into a nice soft powdery, jasmine, carnation? spiceness that I simply love. There might be a hint of vanilla in the dry down as well, though I'm not certain on that note. Husband says it's nice, but he actually prefers the Creed Vanisia.

  2. New still unnamed Vetiver fragrance from Tauer's perfumes

    Today Iíve got a still unnamed new Vetiver fragrance from Andy Tauer. It was a gift to all his blog readers because of his third year blogging anniversary.

  5. The Novice Nose: Samples Month Part II

    For the month of June I decided to wear nothing but samples. As there were a couple of days off for SSDís I decided to extend it until July 5th so there would be 29 scents sampled in all. In Part I the first 13 scents were discussed and now in Part II the remaining 16.
    Guerlain Jicky---Made for a man but loved by women especially the women of Basenotes. Iíve been dying to try this since noticing that this is the ladiesí equivalent to Terre DíHermes as far as how many of them wear it. ScentMother ...
