    Happy birthday, Miss Dalloway! :birthdays:

    Today the sun is shining and I'm smelling like a sweet bouquet of white flowers in Dali Wild.

    I'm hoping that Mr. Shycat is feeling well after the...
  84. Re: Most worn in September and Third Quarter of 2019

    I also did the maths for the third quarter - it's quite unusual for me to count quarters this way, as I usually would think of seasons first. :)

    so, the approximate (because I might have...

    I wanted fresh, citrusy, easy and uplifting, and Les Amoureux de Peynet are just that.

    Hello!
    Guilty Absolute again. I must confess I am hooked.
  89. Re: Looking for a fragrance for a 20 yo, fragrancenet only.

    Okay, I see: sweet-ish, but not too sweet, youthful, but not for teens, and up to 40 $ on Fragrancenet. And for first time perfume wearer, so should be pleasant from the first sniff, lovely and not...
  90. Re: No-Buy September (formerly No-Buy August)

    I'm out, because I saw a thing that was on my wishlist for a long time with a discount (and, of course, it's discounted only until October) and I was planning to get either Meharees by L'Erbolario or...

    I'm wearing Le baiser du dragon as a synch for foxbin's Floraliental Friday.
    It fits my mood and the weather pretty well.

    Sticky: Re: Synchronized Fridays 2019

    foxbins, happy Floraliental day!

    For floraliental day I chose Le baiser du dragon by Cartier - I'm not sure if it is actually classified as floriental or just an oriental/gourmand oriental, but I...
  94. Re: Méharées Acqua di Profumo (Eau de Parfum) by L'Erbolario Lodi - why hasnt this gotten more love?

    Interesting, on me it becomes a skin scent only after 6 or more hours and stays as a skin scent until I wash it off. Basically all L'Erbolario scents last me all day.
    It's either a difference of...
  95. Re: Méharées Acqua di Profumo (Eau de Parfum) by L'Erbolario Lodi - why hasnt this gotten more love?

    I like it. I had a body cream - it's very nice, and has quite a strong aroma, you can use it as both a moisturiser and fragrance at once.

    I got myself a bottle of perfume not long ago, too - after...

    Re: Le Labo is trash...

    Santal 33 was okay to me but didn't sway me, and Patchouli 24 stank to me and was the first instance where something with patchouli in the name was so unpleasant to me.
    But I wouldn't call them...

    Ouch. I see why you're not too keen on that. That's really unfortunate and I hope you'll be getting milder weather soon.

    "Indian Summer" in my area usually means it warms up to mild and pleasant...

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

    I'll admit I sometimes choose to wear something over something else just to bring it to the round number of wears, too. It's very rare, but it does happen :D

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

    Yes! I loved "the uniform" concept, too.
    I dress all black very frequently, too, leather and all. Though the scents I choose usually aren't black at all.

    Chose Méharées by L'Erbolario today as...

    Good morning! Today it's still chilly here, but it's actually sunny and much warmer than in the past week. Could we be getting some Indian summer this year after all? Fingers crossed. There's nothing...
