Michael Storer's Genvieve
Besides my beloved Weils, I would adore a nice big bottle of Coty Chypre
What a story Quarry! I had no idea that the school was attached to a much bigger history. My hospital has been debating the value of restoring old, unused buildings v taking them down and building...
Starting the day in Houbigant's Demi-Jour. Might break out the Norell parfum later on....feeling retro
Habanita, great in winter, sultry in the heat
Excellent haul! I love vintage perfume shopping!
Estee Lauder Dazzling Silver
L'Occitane also had a scent Miel and Citron that can probably be had cheaply on ebay, even had a shimmering version
OMG, I looked on ebay, and it's going for whackadoodle prices. It was nice but...
Back in the day, I wore My Sin (because it was so chic, and Jennifer O'Neill wore it) and Oscar de la Renta. Waaaaaaaay back in high school, I felt very cool in Faberge Flambeu or Tigresse.
I adore Cialenga, my favorite Balenciaga of all.
When it was available as a 60cc bottle, I bought it...so I still wear it sometimes. Today was a great day for a comfort scent. I don't look at the site too often know that the bottles are...
Love's True Bluish Light. Always warming and cheering
I find the concept interesting, and his has been a great read. Do I think that at my advanced age that a perfect scent will make me a guy magnet? No way. But I think scent is a powerful thing, and...
Went to work in Michael Storer's Winter Star, always a popular choice with my colleagues.
I do like Roses and More, Ken_Russell, it works on me.
Haven't worn it in a while, and it seems like the perfect day for it, One Perfect Rose.
Alain Delon's Le Temps D'Aimer and Iquita
The website is gorgeous and I am in pursuit of a great new floral. Something about Pentecost is intriguing and I am dying to know which perfume is "forbidden" at the gym? Sounds like a fabulous...
I love the idea of a perfume selection outing for the birthday. This would be a memory of a lifetime, getting a signature FM scent from, as Andrew Lloyd Webber's song says "the first man you...
I adore Shalimar. It has been a long time favorite and all my memories around this fragrance are pleasant. A favorite teacher wore it and as teenagers looking to be adults, many of my girlfriends...
Thanks, Larimar! It's nice to feel less stressed out and able to enjoy life again.
This evening, I shall return to an old favorite of mine: Parfum d'elle by Montana, the old one. It is relaxing...
Moods by Krizia. It really is a great scent, and I had forgotten about the silky looking box.
I empathize with all the dog walkers out there! Mine was pretty crazy on a leash (and occasionally...
Lanvin's Scandale is another you might love!
Fendi is a big loss to fragrance lovers
Yes. The poor Caron's! How I love Poivre and Narcisse Noir. Another one I never hear about, ever, was Robert Piguet's Musc Blanc. It is very special.
I think I may be around more, the odious degree is coming to a close and this last class is not horrible and time wasting as so many of the others. After two years, I can get back into perfumes,...
Moods is truly unique, I can't off the top of my head think on anything in the stable like that one. I went through a mini splurge about a year ago and bought a bottle of Moods, you will definitely...
Went to work in SL Douce Amere.
Back up bottle of Houbigant's (not Dana's) Demi-jour.
This is my favorite sort of thread as I desperately miss some of these old scents. Weil was such a glorious house, and if I could time travel, I'd sneak back and buy up all those 9.99 bottles of...
I love this scent and recently bought a couple of bottles. I am also a fan of Krazy, Teatro alla Scala and, Fiori. It was a great house !
Happy Birthday! Your description of that vintage Joy parfum is making me think about opening that auction bottle I swore to sell!
I think there is a lot of hype in fragrance, like anything else. Some fragrances live up to the hype, some are no better than the garden variety stuff you find at the department store. It is an...
Thanks, I was literally shaking with excitement! I never expected that the lot would be so great! Included too is a 200 ml body creme of YSL Champagne, before the name change. And several other large...
I TOTALLY hit the jackpot, mes amies!
First a 60ml bottle of Molinard de Molinard parfum, unopened, in the real Lalique crystal bottle
A large EDT of the same
Shalimar parfum 15ml
Off to an auction today where there are several spectacular lots of perfume. As most people go for the furniture, jewelry or art, the box lots should be reasonable. Going to wear Dianthus.
Cristalle for work today.
LOL. Might necessitate a trip to TJMaxx. That and proximity to ye olde fabric store.
Wearing Genvieve and hoping for another bottle soon
Teatro alla Scala by Krizia
Wore Mitsouko today, in the EDP form. I just love it, but it is too much for your average work day at a hospital where only a soap and water or hand sanitizer scent will do.
I bought but may return Nilang from TJMaxx. Will wait to see the BN reviews to see if it is worth opening and trying
I am jealous of all the new Creeds! Today, I am venturing off to a TJMaxx farther from my home in search of Penhaligons.
I love Soie Rouge. Secrete Datura and Jardin Blanc are also FBs in my stable. I have little bottles of Fleur D'Iris and Racine, but they are both too high pitched for me.
Soie Rouge is just a...
Miss Dior. It was my grandmother's scent.
I have abandoned so many online baskets with that one as it was still pretty pricey. But at 39.99, it was too good to be true! It will certainly spur my interest in TJMAxx in general.
So thrilled that I broke my "no buy" pledge with a 100ml bottle of Penhaligons Violetta! YAY
Teatro alla Scala for me today...still on my Krizia kick
Will be spending the day grinding out yet another paper for this degree I didn't really need and probably should never have started! AAAAAAAAAAAAGH!
But I will be doing it in Samsara EDP
While I love Ylang, Caron has not been doing well lately.
Do you like this one? How does it compare with the original?
Wore Samsara today.
Brut, bit bad memories more than anything else
LTBL today it always makes me happy
I slept poorly too, but have to drag myself in to work anyway...COFFEE is the answer.
But, not for fragrance. I need something bright and cheery, so I'm going full throttle fruit with Ineke...
Fiori de Krizia.
Luckily, they were sold out of Sweet William when I went to the site! Would have had a mini-splurge relapse!
Wearing Anthropologie's Belle de Soir tonight. Love their sales.
Good Morning, Cristalle for me this morning.

Good Morning, Cristalle for me this morning.
Briar Rose and dreaming of spring
Unbelievably bad. I guess it must look different "in translation". It just looks silly, IMO. They should just recycle the Deneuve ads if they can't do better than this. His rangy look does nothing...
I am trying to not buy as well. I might even try to sell off a few back up bottles of fragrances, though discontinued, that do not really need backing up any more. There are a lot of things I bought...
Mmmm, black eyed peas! Thanks for reminding me! I love Bal a Versailles.
Happy New Year!
Starting the New Year in Krazy by Krizia, a newly found love.
Elizabeth Taylor's Diamonds and Sapphires EDP is a very lovely lily based scent. I actually enjoy wearing it as it is a gentler and less linear take on EL's Dazzling Silver. Someone gave it to me as...
Fragonard Lune de Miel
None, but they are hilarious! I never ceased to be amazed by body art. The other day I went to the deli and the big burly guy at the counter had scenes from Wizard of Oz on his arms! Dorothy and Toto...
A lot of Balmain, Ava-Luxe (everyone I know loves Moss and LTBL) and Guerlain. When I went on my vacation, I limited myself to packing samples so that I would have options, then I bought Rose Oil in...
Men seem to have less worries about the "make an offer" thing. We worry that we will feel awkward and that people will be upset with us personally. I think that sort of sums up why fewer women list...
I have often wondered the same thing. I have done some trading, but largely with guys who have purchased ava-luxes and found them wrong with their chemistry. I have also felt a little skittish about...
Neiges for a lightly snowy morning
I'm more the annoying corns and callouses type myself with a few months worth of corn pads in stock at all times.
Was going to NYC to hang with my older daughter, but the weather said "no", so...
Ran out the door to work in Samsara this morning. This evening it's a spritz of Habanita
I like Ava-Luxe versions and also Bourbon French's Mon Idee is a great carnation. Largely single note, others might be able to tease out basenotes in this, but I just smell a deep bright carnation...
Soon to be on my way to work in Musk Blanc by Robert Piquet. Need a real mood booster today.
Another loooooong day at work. Wore Miss Balmain. Now wearing Arielle as I prep for sleep to do it all over again in the AM.
As much as I hate to admit it, I saw a bottle of Vittadini Amore for 7.99 at Marshall's and said "what the heck". It is a ringer for Madness. Not that Madness isn't super cheap already, but if you...
Winter Star for this evening. I am tempted to fight the crowds and get to Barnes to use my thrilling 25% off coupon. I realize this is silly as I might end up with a fender bender or walking half a...
Never smelled Robe d'un Jour...just the Soir version, which is lovely.
Guerlain's Eau de Guerlain or Imperiale. Both are fairly neutral, Imperiale smells like froot loops
Starting my morning in Bourbon French's Voodoo Love. No plans for the day to speak of and will probably reorganize my collection as it badly needs some arranging.
Happy Birthday Mr. Reasonable!...
Briar Rose today!
Wearing K de Krizia today.
Hope you are feeling better soon, RHM. If the events of yesterday which unfolded before our eyes are what is influencing you, I empathize. Just beyond words
Krazy de Krizia...practically perfect on this chilly evening
SL makes lovely woods. I also like some of Ava-Luxe scents, Moksha and Palisander stand out as great wood fragrances. And, I know we can't get it, but I thought Mike Storer's Winter Star was...
Musk Blanc Femme by Piguet. Love it
I'd have listed it and had someone purchase it for me, then it would have been "market price" under the presumption that ebay tests this
Bourbon French Voodoo Love. On me it is like an amalgam of Malmaison, Boudoir and Bal a Versailles. I only wear this at times when I can reasonably get out of stating the name of my scent.
Thanks so much. I have had a tremendous lot going on in my life. Relationship stuff, family events, work and now school as I am finishing up another degree at my advanced age! Of course I am still...
Robert Piguet's Musk Blanc Femme. Now that I have another bottle enroute, I feel I can indulge (yes, I know it' silly)
We were limited to areas near the Danube. The pictures are beautiful.
Iivanita, I had the pleasure of visiting Croatia this summer while on a Danube cruise. What a lovely countryside I saw. We went to Osijek and also spent time with an agricultural entrepreneur.
8e Jour is a great scent and so hard to find, like my Zibeline. I tend to hoard and not use these hard to find gems, but included Z as is my idea of perfect. We seem to share a lot of houses.
I can't wait for your return and am so very happy that you are well, safe, sound and happy in Arizona! I was feeling very morose about the site being down, so glad the news is largely good.
Vol de Nuit
Bought a second bottle of Musk Blanc Femme by Robert Piguet. I never hear about this one, but it is lovely. I don't know if it came before or after the big surge of musk scents in the 60s, but it...
So my perfect fragrance collection would be a small fraction of its current size? I agree. The one I have is more of a perfume museum than a usable collection. The trouble is that I am a dyed in the...
YDAN for a trip to the theater tonight.
Will join TWolf in Anglomania. I love it. Was never one for this new Newsday version of Le Guide
