    Re: Why did you wear what you wore today..

    I'm breaking out of my monthly rotation to wear Serge Lutens Fleurs d'Oranger. I think I developed a craving for it because of the PERFECT spring weather we're having. Bliss!

    10 sprays of Mugler Aura. Now I'm ready to waft my way through the Mall. Oh wait, the mall's still closed!

    Do you fill the star yourself from a refill bottle? I usually take mine to the store where they fill it from an urn but that's not possible now.

    I'm wearing Mugler Aura today because I'm ready for something BIG. Aura is bombastic, especially when sprayed 10 times. Now I'm walking in a tangy, sweet green cloud of deliciousness.

    Sometimes I feel like I should be more experimental and try more fragrances or have a larger collection like other Basenoters. Maybe I'm missing out. On the other hand, I truly love the ones I own...
