    Love the Un Jardin Apres La Mousson, it's a summer fragrance for me. Actually it's my favourite of the series. Sur le Nil is a little to sharp for me.

    Re: Today I bought (March 2009 Purchases!)

    Haunani, I'm eyeing to purchase a bottle of VG too. I love it and it lasts a long time on me. I get the green, ylang-ylang, plus the aquatic notes, but I don't get the salt?, I must try it again.

    Re-applied the Vetiver Tonka this evening. Love the dryness and the initial blast of tobacco leaves. Can't really say I can make out the tonka bean in this one. Very masculine on me.

    Re: SotD Friday 27 March

    Quick in and out here.
    Vanille Galante for me again today on this happy Friday.

    I find that if I dab this on, it doesn't last, but when sprayed, the scent will waft around me for a good 10 hours....

    Re: most expensive fragrance you have purchased.

    My Djedi parfum came in at $12US per ml, well worth the money. I can only afford a few ml though.

    Re: Meeting a basenoter, what to wear?

    oh, what fun! I've done that with a few BN friends in the Toronto and Ottawa area. What's really interesting is trying out different scents together and smelling them on others with different skin...
