I like to layer Gold Bond with my SOTD.
No change. I like it when the bottles from the same house match. For this reason, I wasn't happy when Diptyque changed their bottle shape.
Futur by Robert Piguet
Alphabet games and newbies hyping Aventus.
Another vote for Black March - earthy and humid.
Aventus is a great party or special occasion scent for someone your age.
I'd like to add my appreciation as well. Hednic helps make Basenotes a very enjoyable site. Thank you!
For me, Bandit.

As usual, it's warm and dry here in Southern California. I am wearing a seasonal favorite - Blue Agava & Cacao by Jo Malone. Have a great day!
Wow! The Dior alone would make my day. Congratulations!
Sometimes I wear a dab or two of Jicky.
I'm wearing Futur again today. It's my new favorite. Have a great day!
Whenever I feel Basenotes forums are becoming uncomfortably contentious I take a break for a while. I read Scent of the Day, catch up on reviews and articles, etc. until the dust clears. As for...
In sync with Sel Marin. It's appropriate because it will be 90 degrees today here in Southern California. Have a nice day!
I am wearing Diorella today. Have a great day, everyone!
I'm wearing L'Ombre dans L'Eau by Diptyque. A green rose - perfect for a breezy spring day.
It's Sous le Vent on this fine day.
CapriDog, I love your Vietnamese photographs. They are very evocative.
I'm lounging this morning trying to decide if I should sample Micallef's Gaiac Wood again today. I think I will. I wore it yesterday and it has a soft, sweet, woody smell that is quite pleasant. I'm...
I am making it through the work day in Cristalle. The occasional whiffs are wonderful! Bye!
I am wearing Cuir de Russie today. Yesterday, I heard a bird singing outside my office window. It gave me Spring Fever really bad! But instead of running outside to commune with nature, I drudged on...
Futur - I'm wearing green fragrance in honor of St. Patrick's Day.
The several orders I placed arrived in good condition and the products performed as expected. Regarding customer service, I contacted them by telephone about a return and they were quite nice and I...
You hit the nail on the head! I had a more old school perfume experience applying from the bottle instead of the sprayer. The two particular houses I mentioned come as capped bottles with...
As an experiment, I coverted my Serge Lutens and Santa Maria Novella bottles from sprayers back to splash bottles. I kind of like the more targeted application. Any thoughts on this?
It's Ambre Sultan today.
Today, I am sampling Bandit for the first time. Exciting!
I was ogling some old time cheapies on the Vermont Country Store website the other day. I didn't pull the trigger though.
I have never forgotten to apply fragrance. It's part of my morning routine. However, I would feel uncomfortable if I did forget.
I am wearing Antonia by Puredistance. It's super-green. Have a good day!
Diorella is my scent of the day. It'll be over 90 degrees today - yikes!
Yes, we do indeed.
Yours is a very humorous rant, I must say. Mule, goat... LOL!
I am breaking out my new bottle of Ambre Sultan today. It's a cozy scent for a gray day. Have a good day!
Today, I'm debuting my new bottle of Futur. It seems to be a successful blind buy. It's VERY green - just what I wanted!
If you wear leather, try wearing Tuscan Leather to enhance the vibe of your clothes. I wear it with my leather jackets.
Congratulations on your recognition! I look forward to reading the book and learning about how you and other fragrance designers create.
Ambre Sultan by Serge Lutens (50 ml)
futur by Robert Piguet (100 ml)
Extreme Amber and extreme Green!
I am sample testing Timbuktu today. Have a nice day!
Another variation on the Aventus theme. It's amusing how many things can be said about a particular fragrance.
I am wearing Amouage Fate Woman to a wedding this evening. Have a beautiful day!
I am wearing Ambre Sultan as I visit Las Vegas. The temperature should peak around 73 degees this afternoon. Glorious!
Sporting L'Air du Desert Marocain for a road trip through the Mohave to Las Vegas this afternoon. This is my third sample test and I think it is FB worthy. Have a wonderful day!
I am wearing Gold Woman by Amouage. I read somewhere it has a soapy phase and I feel like smelling soapy today.
I'm wearing Jo Malone Blue Agava & Cacao. This is as close as I'll ever get to having a signature scent - I've drained three large FBs over the years.
I'm trying to warm up on this blustery day with Chanel Coromandel. It's doing the trick!
I store grouped by house. I once wore my entire wardrobe in alphabetical order and it was fun to experience my fragrances one by one without being influenced by mood. I also tried assigning notes to...
I bought eight new bottles in 2014:
M2 Black March
Except Black March, I wear them all regularly.
I keep my wardrobe to around 30 bottles. I've considered collecting all the Diptyques but haven't committed to that. Two things keep me from becoming a collector: financial constraints and minimalist...
I cannot sync today because I do not own any discontinued fragrances. So I chose ELDO's Like This to suit my mood. Have a fabulous day!
I am wearing Chanel Cristalle EDT today. I noticed it was introduced in 1974 but somehow I thought it was more recent. Have a good day everyone!
I enjoy Mon Jasmine Noir.
My scent of the day is Alien.
Today, I'll be sporting Alien at the office while up to my eyeballs in budget preparation. Enjoy your day!
P.S. I switched to Back to Black at the last minute.
I'm launching the work week in Diptyque's Olene. White flowers always perk me up!
Hilarious! (assuming you're kidding...)
I have The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo too! I've been using the Konmari Method of decluttering since November and am now in the final phase of tackling mementos. The method is...
SOTD is Oyedo by Diptyque - a beautiful woodsy orange.
In sync with Sous Le Vent. I bought a pricey large bottle from a visiting Guerlain rep on my birthday.
There is a Chanel store at my local mall. I also see Chanel's exclusive fragrances on their website, although I've not ordered them online.
Linen pants, black tank top, and tailored suit jacket with Chanel Cuir de Russie.
Tide Free and Gentle (scent free) on clothes and Seventh Generation Free and Clear on towels and bed linens. Surprisingly, I loathe scented laundry products. Nauseating!
Bought: February 24, 2013
Finished: February 11, 2015
It took two years to finish 50 ml and it's on my Most Worn list. I refilled the star bottle at Bloomingdales.
Going to try it... now!
Like a lemming, I will go to Nordstrom too.
I am wearing Coromandel today, which has just risen to the top of my "recorded" Most Worn list. By the way, today is the 2nd anniversary of my joining Basenotes.
Hello alI, I am enjoying Sunday in Tuscan Leather. Hearing about weather back east, I suppose I have a new found appreciation for the 80 degree weather expected in Southern California today (although...
It's Jicky today! Have a lovely Valentine's Day everyone.
In sync with Bulgari Mon Jasmine Noir.
I am wearing Marni. It is a perfect office scent.
I look forward to trying this variation of Marni. Thanks for the tip!
Hello all, I am wearing Angel today.
YSL Dusty Rose Matte
By Kilian: Forbidden Games
Today, I am wearing the amazing Diorella.
Kiliwia, I love the picture of the little Alien family!
I spent summertime on a Utah farm as a youth and fell in love with hay and even wanted to bring a bale back to my home in the city. I now like a good hay note in perfume. Maybe there's a connection...
Either Olene or Mon Jasmine Noir - both ultra feminine.
Angel and 1932.
I think collecting the Malles is perfectly reasonable. It would be a varied collection of high quality fragrances created by great noses. Excellent approach!
I'll never forget the sense of accomplishment when I figured out LIDGE. I finally entered it as a BN search and got it by reading numerous posts and getting clues from context.
Perhaps Guerlain Jicky.
Edit: I thought of another - Guerlain Eau de Cologne Imperiale (1853) has a lavender heart. Classic old school (really old!) cologne.
Creed threads are usually sure to be amusing in a twisted way.
I am wearing Chergui today.
I'm wearing my not-often-worn Lady Vengeance to the California high desert today. I suppose I should have worn something drier and more desert-like. Oh, well!
I am wearing L'Ombre dans L'Eau. The other rose in my wardrobe is Lady Vengeance. I've been reading up on rose scents lately and I want to sample Une Rose and some of the other highly rated ones.

Community, education, entertainment.
1. Volutes - Diptyque
2. Coromandel - Chanel
3. Champaca Absolute - Tom Ford
Alien again today.
It depends on the hair and face structure, but generally I prefer clean shaven. Alternatively, a very well groomed goatee or beard.
Basenotes and Luckyscent website.
I used to think Poison was a negative name but it seems very normal now.
I (Puredistance) is an odd one.
L'Eau de L'Eau (Diptyque) is too redundant.
There's a story by Acanthus about Jicky as a lover in the Basenotes reviews that is very clever and funny.
Puredistance M exudes power.
When you have to alphabetize your collection by house in order to find a fragrance in your cabinet. Oh, and you use the term "house".
