Vol de Nuit parfum in the morning and Must edt post evening bath. I have Must parfum, but I felt like wearing the softer edt tonight.
Guerlain Jardins de Bagatelle edt
Chanel No. 5 Eau Premier
Une Fleur de Chanel edt over Cristalle edp
One of the best combos I've tried.
Pacifica Lotus Garden
Some new additions:
Egyptian Bergamot Rose
Lotus Garden (currently only available at Sephora, but customer service at Pacifica said they will be offering this on their...
Pacifica's fruits perfumes are wonderful. The price point is so nice you can buy several perfumes, or get her the soap, body cream and even the candle to match.
I'm a huge Pacifica devotee. I have them all except for the new Lotus Garden that currently is exclusive to Sephora. I love to create a bath using complimentary essential oils, and then use the...
One of my essential oil collections is in a drawer with other items. The collective smell of the EO's is quite stunning. I really wish I could bottle it.
I can't imagine putting on all my...
An odd but surprizingly nice combo of Pacifica's Waikiki Pikake and Mexican Cocoa. It reminds me a bit of Lily Angel. I'll switch to Tibetan Mountain Temple when I take my evening bath. I love...
Pacifica Tibetan Mountain Temple
Pacifica Avalon Juniper
I have an order coming from Pacifica with Tunisian Jasmine and Madagascar Spice in perfume spray, solid perfume and body butter. Also Tibetan Mountain Temple and Spanish Amber in solid perfume --...
After the weather finally cooled I stopped craving Pacifica perfumes. I've been reaching for Aveda alot this month. Yatra most often, probably followed by Key Element #6, Aveda Love, Aveda Ancient...
I wear Cartier Declaration & Declaration Bois Bleu, but sometimes pair them with a Rose or Violet to femme things up a bit. Also Aveda Men, Mugler Cologne, Guerlain Vetiver & Heritage, AG Sables &...
I can't remember if I purchased anything in the beginning of the month. :o
From hubby -- Chanel Eau de Premier and the Chanel Holiday Parfum Coffret.
For myself -- from Aveda Ancient Attar,...
I'm soooooo with you on this one! I especially hate synthetic vanilla it when it's used as a single scent like in public bathroom deodorizers.
SotE Declaration over Samsara. The cardamom in Declaration works beautifully with the sandalwood in Samsara.
Myrrhe et Merveilles
SotE - having fun playing with Pacifica. I put Hawaiian Ruby Guava over Mexican Cocoa. This is yummy and cozy. I never thought I'd get into gourmand scents that much, but since finally warming up...
A single Holy Grail just isn't possible for me, but I like the idea. My sister has a single scent she wears (Shalimar), and she's utterly content (and always smells fabulous -- Shalimar is magical...
Shalimar Eau Legere
Vol de Nuit parfum
SotE Pacifica Avalon Juniper over Cartier Declaration Bois Bleu
Cartier Declaration, Guerlain Habit Rouge
(These are great unisex fragrances, but if she finds these too masculine, you could wear them) :)
Pacifica Mexican Cocoa and Tuscan Blood Orange
I've gone through many pots of both Indian Earth and Rubiglo over the years. Loved those earthy little pots. I agree Bare Escentuals Warmth All Over Face Color is very much like Indian Earth. It's...
In addition to scents mentioned above, for pure amber I'm loving Pacifica Spanish Amber and Attar Bazaar Persian Amber.
For scents that include amber in the notes I like Boucheron Initial &...
Pacifica Mexican Cocoa
Cristalle EDT and EDP
Pacifica Avalon Juniper
Pacifica Mexican Cocoa
MANY Pacifica solid perfumes including the above scents so I have them all now :) They're so much fun.
I love, love, LOVE the Nerola Orange Blossom perfume and body butter by Pacifica. It's just intoxicating and the price is so great, I can spray with abandon :)
Started the day in Coco
My SotE is Mitsouko tempered by Pacifica Spanish Amber. They are just fabulous together.
Count me in for lunch -- thanks!! :-D
Quarry, please add my name to the list of attendees.
Annick Goutal Le Jasmin over Opium body cream & parfum
Thanks for the replies! I'll keep these suggestions in mind.
The only orange blossom scents I have are Narcisse Noir and Boucheron Classic. I might have some Neroli in Jojoba oil tucked away...
Boucheron body cream and edt
Narcisse Noir + Shalimar
Does anyone here layer other scents with Opium? I know this might be sacrilege to Opium purists. My skin really magnifies the cinnamon spice notes and I'm looking for ways to temper it.
Happy Valentine's Day!!
Wearing Joy body cream and edp today.
Opium edt over Nu edp - wonderful combination!
Shalimar EDT. I have & love the parfum & EDP, but very often I just crave the bright opening of the EDT. It's so uplifting to me.
Jicky parfum over Origin's Calm To Your Senses body cream
Chanel Gardenia. Nice enough, but it didn't seem to last at all. I think this one really needs warmer weather to bloom.
In Chicago, the best places to get a good variety of Guerlain in edt, edp or parfum is Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus. Maybe you'd have luck with those stores in New York?
Initial + Stella
Le Baiser du Dragon Parfum
Jovan Andron for Women.
Boucheron Initial in the morning, and switched to Shalimar for evening.
Joy body cream and EDP
L'Heure Bleue Parfum & EDT
Jean Paul Gaultier Classique
Orange Flower, Bulgarian Rose, Italian Mandarin, Star Aniseed, Orchid, Iris, Ylang-Ylang, Indian Ginger, Soft Vanilla, Woody Amber.
Eau de Cartier I wear this myself (and get compliments on it), but I also love to catch a wiff of this on men.
Eau de Cartier Notes:
Yuzu, Bergamot, Violet Leaves and Flowers, Musk,...
Mango Botanical Perfume by White Mountain Yoga .
Smells nothing like Mango the fruit. To me it smells like an other-worldly fairy forest would smell. It's euphoric and uplifting.
I would have kept the Angel bottle as a keepsake even if I wasn't in love with the juice. Regifting it seems odd to me unless she knows for sure the person she's giving it to LOVES Angel. (I have...
Going to add Frances Denney's Interlude and Madame Rochas. I wish I would have kept the little Interlude flacon I had that contained this scent. I think this was the heaviest perfume in my...
I don't have exact counts...
Everything else I've only worn once.
I love the Angel and Innocent bottles. I have a collection of various sizes/shapes and several of the limited edition parfum de extrait bottles.
I also like the Shalimar Eau Legere bottle.
Orientals for me. I have to be in just a right mood for florals.
Wearing YSL Nu today.
Youth Dew - just a touch and low on the body. Mmmmmmmm! If not overdone, this scent is so yummy!
I'm wearing Black Cashmere today. I'm trying to stave off a cold and using powdered ginger in my bath w/ EO's Hinoki & Ginger Bubble bath. Following with Dr. Singha's Mustard Oil blend. Black...
Samsara parfum for me today. I haven't worn this in a long time and it is just luscious.
You might consider Eau de Cartier. I know you said you loathe violet, but I think it uses violet leaves which seem much greener to me than violet flower. It also has lavender in it. It's one of my...
Testing Alien again today. I'm liking it better than when I first tried it when it came out. There are times it reminds me a little of Aimez Moi, which I like a lot, but so far Alien isn't...
A recent happy layering was TM Angel over Boucheron Initial.
Other combo's include wearing Black Cashmere etp over Cashmere Mist body lotion and mixing up Must de Cartier & Shalimar.
Angel for me today.
I added to my Angel collection by getting the 2006 Caprice de Star pure parfum at Nordstrom this afternoon.
What a georgeous bottle!
I think Aromatics Elixir is the grand dame of great sillage scents! It needs to be applied with a super light touch, or it can overpower. It's one of my favorite catch a wiff scents -- I always...
Jean Paul Gaultier Classique.
