    Happy Birthday CuddleCat! :birthdays:

    Today I'm in I Am Coming Home by Floraïku. My favorite of the line so far. A ginger and cardamom spiced tea.

    Trying to think of something akin to Axe, but around in the 80s. Maybe Hai Karate.

    Re: SIXTEEN92 Discussion Thread

    Reporting back on Formula 86. At first I really enjoyed the heliotrope/vanilla which I now realize I've come to identify as a Sixteen92 accord. It seems to impart a goth vibe which I've gotten from...

    Many to choose from but I'm going with my sample of Senshilde: Donna Sentenza by Hilde Soliani. It smells like one of the banana protein smoothies I occasionally make for breakfast!
