Working this Sunday but have a late start, so I am just about to pedal downtown wearing Kenzo Flower.
Same tendency as last year: summer comes and I start craving floirental and gormand :confused:
Kenzo Flower le parfum
Wish you all a lovely weekend!
Hello, nice to see you all!
Warm lazy day here on the swedish west coast and I can't think of wearing anything but A.A. Herba Fresca.
Spending this day in Le Parfum de Thérèse.
Happy 13th anniversary to Tigress and Tiger!
Great weekend to all of you!
L'Ombre dans l'eau has been my smelly companion for these last few days of nordic spring, and is today as well. Especially lovely when carried by the wind :) I have missed wearing it, but...
Hello all! I am wearing Jour de Fête.
The last few weeks I have been altering between just a few scents, and they are all Giacobetti creations. The returned winter has me searching out the...
I agree. I know Mademoiselle is supposed to be a "modern" interpretation, but I have a har time finding the similarities between them. i think they are both beautiful. I wear Mademoiselle easier...
Premièr Figuier Extreme on me for the last few days
Good morning all! :)
Angel for me. Beautiful day here!
I wish I had a perfect rose/chypre to put on, this cold but beautiful Monday. If I had a drop of Agent Provocateur, that's what I would wear. But anyway, I think I'll go for Feminité...
Love your system, Silvergirl! I do occasionally take notes, in a very disorganized notepad, but haven't updated it in a long time.
Unfortunately I was still not in the mood for any of the Lutens-scents I could choose between, so I am wearing Premièr Figuier
Have a relaxing Sunday!
Hi Tink! :) could you, or anyone, describe what makes a scent "tangy"? I have been wondering about this adjective before, and seen it in many perfume reviews. Consulted two different english-swedish...
Good morning! Heading off to work (trying not to blow away!) wearing Hermès Hiris.
I decided to dedicate this Sniff'n Speak Saturday to Guerlain - Vol de Nuit. (Many thanks to Allie for making that possible! :) )
Have a great Saturday, and please share your...
Wearing Hiris today, and still haven't made my mind up about what oriental to pick for tomorrow. I am not sure what aproach to choose; "explore" or "celebrate"....perhaps "maximize". We'll see. What...
Don't worry, my dear! :kiss: I have just been very very lazy with posting lately ( :o ) but I will soon be back in game! Hopefully I will have time to post for the sniff'nspeak tomorrow :) Looking...
Good evening! Lazy friday night home, and I wore Stella today and the last few days. Wish you a lovely weekend!
Shalimar perfume here.
The next one should be Saturday January 6, year 2007, and according to Quarry's scedule it's an oriental this time. This covers quite a broad range, and could indeed include both spicy, ambery and...
How nice! First is one that I have wanted to try for some time, but I keep forgetting about it.
The last (and one of the very few) time(s) I got a "You smell lovely" from a stranger my friend had...
Chanel - Bois des Îles, thanks to tinker!
Kenzo - Ca sent beau?
I have a late start, but I think I will wear Angel.
Should be suitable for Lucia-day :)
Spent this last couple of days in Diorella. Makes me wish it was spring.
Hiris for me (at the moment it is layered with nail polish. Interesting combination..)
Great weekend to all!
Flying around at work, but enjoying the marvelous drydown of Caron - N'aimez que moi
Personally I apreciate the little hidden hellish element in this otherwise heavenly liquid. And I am not bothered by the popularity; I think it's quite fun with a scent that has so many fans and such...
Yes, I get it from Kenzo Flower, especially in the drydown, and I love it. I am thinking of the salty kind you make yourself, and not "Play-doh". I get it from L'Heure Bleu too.
Happy indie-day to our neighbours in the east!I wore Daim Blond to work.
Spent this day in Ungaro - Desnuda :)
I try to do this often, and sometimes it works, other times it's impossible. But like previous posters, it happens more often "out of the blue", when the thoughts are out of focus. Scent memories...
Fair-skinned brunette here who think I wear Daim Blond well if I may say so. I just recently fell for it, and I like it a lot.
But yes, the name must refer to "light suede", and not blondines,...
Guerlain - L'Heure Bleu
Happy monday! :rolleyes:
And for the evening I am changing to Jasmine Full (another sample from a sweet basenoter :)) Yay, now I can also do the comparison with Á la nuit.
I didn't think I'd find a gourmand scent that suited my moods today, but then I came to think of my sample of Keiko Mecheri - Gourmandises, and this seemed like the perfect choice. So, at the moment...
Was not really in the gourmand mood to start with, but I then remembered I still had a dash left of the sample of Keiko Mecheri - Gourmandises a kind basenoter sent me some...
Kenzo Flower today again, and still no winter in sight...
Kenzo - Flower (le parfum) My miniature is running out, so I am going to get a full size of it in near future :)
For the part of the seventies I can relate to, there can be only one: YSL Opium! This one is possibly even more symbolic of the early eighties though.
L´Heure Bleu, after some vacillating.
Nice day here, although not a single snowflake. But I am glad it's not raining :)
Yes, nothing. Because I can't smell them but they are still "there" enough to make me sneeze. Hope you get well soon!
Parfum Sacré again, and then as many samples as I could fit on my underarms.
This is interesting! I feel a little like an allien with my reply in this thread, I seem to be less dependent than most of you.
But please don't doubt my love for scents! ;)
Both! Sorry, I just really like these equally :o And the crosses between them.
Parfum Sacré for me :)
Did today actually, because I was in a hurry when I left home, and couldn't really make my mind up.
If I have a day off doing nothing in particular, I don't always feel like wearing anything. I...
I have a co-worker who wears it frequently too (I have never asked, but I am pretty damn sure), and even if I still like it, I could possibly see the same happening to me in the long run..... The...
All those strange holidays!
Ungaro - Desnuda for me :)
Good evening (or well, midnight here)
I have been wearing Premier Figuier extreme for the last couple of days. This evening I had the oportunity to sample Dzonkha (thanks to a lovely lady on board...
I wore Jour de Fête to a birthday party for an 11 year old.
My nose is blind :cry:
I don't get any musk whatsoever in À la nuit
For me it means I haven't rated them. One star is the lowest in my (very loosly constructed) system
You are a hard woman! ;)
The main problem for me when grading is that are sentiments like:
1. It hurts to smell it, but I can't keep my nose from it
2. I wouldn't want to wear it but it...
I get mine for wearing, for reference and for the bottles. I have a few that are a little off because they are old, but I prefer perfume concentrate for miniatures, and they seem to keep longer.
Yes, picking your own seems like a better idea.
Hmm, I think I will feel like wearing something I don't usually wear this time.
À la Nuit. Good night from Sweden! :)
Thanks! Must say it looks very smart. Not to that price though.
Good heavens! :eek: OK, 10 ml is a lot, surely more than a "test" volume, but still!!!
I think I need to change something in my browser to see it. Parts of the page is outside the screen, and I...
Lily of the valley.... Also, it has a sourish edge, in a good way rounding off the prettiness of this cute little flower (green citrus-y bergamot top interacting with civet base) Diorissimo is fresh...
Wore Hiris again on this busy Sunday
Three completely different weathers today. This morning I cursed my early ancestors for ever migrating up here. Anyway, wore Angel in the day, but have now applied Hiris after the shower. Have a...
Rose, without a doubt. One of my favorite notes. But I like the scent of the living flower gardenia.
The only thing I can think of now is how well red wine goes toghether with Angel (or I can imagine with other sweet patchouly scents). Of course the feeling of putting all stress aside, dressing up...
Trouble mind today on my day off, I had a hard time deciding what to wear at all (scent or clothes), but I went for the sample of lovely lovely Chanel - Bois de Îles, sent to me by a friend from...
Stella, and I have missed it (didn' know that until I applied)
Kenzo Flower, so violets for me too :)
Agree too, and many participants this time! :)
Almost all mine have already been mentioned, so I suspect there is something universally (or at least "basenotes-universally") cuddly about them:
Jour de Fête, Loukhoum, Feminité du Bois and L'...
I am not really in that state myself, but more in a "can not be bothered picking anything, so I'll wear Hiris"-mood. But the bottle is blue too.
Hope you are feeling better already this evening.
"Let me play the lion" is from "A midsummer nights dream"
I wonder about the unicorn though....
Good morning! Since I am in such a mood for cinnamon I followed my own advice to Quarry and picked Asja by Fendi (thanks for the sample twolf! And you were right, the cold weather is needed to make...
Good morning! Cold and icy here too, just a thin layer of snow.
Still playing with my samples, CdG Rhubarb today :)
This month went fast dn my documentation was not 100%, adn it seems I had only 3 repeats (!)
3 wearings of Shalimar eau légère
2 wearings of Hiris
2 wearings of KM Loukhoum
Had some lovely...
I have recieved mine too: big thanks to Lez Nez, EauxM and anyone involved, for a very generous samples and a great opportunity!
The Unicorn spell caught my attention first, and so far I am liking...
If you are planning to get an EdP or EdT I definitely think L'Heure Bleu suits the description best, especially since Shalimar can be quite sweet in the weaker concentrations. They are both beauties...
Cold, sunny and a powdery layer of snow here on the west coast. Very beautiful indeed. Time for sampling again after resting nose for a while: Serge Lutens Daim Blond for the second day (thanks to...
KM Loukhoum here. I don't think I have slept this long for years! The pattern here the last week has been 1 day rain and the next day sunny. Today it is sunshine, at least for the moment, but cold....
Can't believe it's already Friday again!
Feminité du Bois, waiting for that storm to arrive, but it seems it has hit the north first.
oriental (lately I have been especially craving the combo vanilla + lemon)
florals (especially if there is some element of green or citrus there too)
and all sorts of cross-overs.
Thanks for the Paris-report, and cogratulations to the anniversary! :) Nice to see you back.
I haven't been to Paris yet, but I will go some time. Right now it seems very very tempting to escape...
Something un-foody I'd suggest!
I pick À la Nuit.
Although I see you have given it 3 stars, so perhaps you are better off wearing something you are more crazy about. :)
L' Ombre dans L'eau
strange choice for this very rainy blah day, but it worked ok actually.
Payday is here....:D Happy aniversary Riannon!
Shalimar eau légère for me today.
Taking off to work in Guerlain - L' Heure Bleu
Have a great Tuesday!
Couldn't look duller outdoors, rain is pouring down, plastic bags flying around in the wind and besides someone has been calling at his disappearded pitbull around and outside my window for the last...
Kenzo Flower again, and a wonderful weekend to all!
Kenzo Flower (le parfum)
There are three differnt "nuances" of violet that I like for different moods (some of these scents already mentioned, but I like to repeat ;):
*woody/spicy violet like Keiko Mecheri Genie de Bois...
It does make one think if Diorissimo, the classic white floral boquet, dominated by lily of the valley, from the 50's. But then again I am far from familiar with all the Diors. (I've only read...
Jour de Fête
I love bergamot too. I sometimes think scents with strong bergamot note have a teanote even though they don't. This is only because for me tea = Earl Grey tea, where bergamot, as musse wrote, is a...
Quarry, I think it's quite noble of you not to fall for the temptation of power abuse, I mean you could easily have "blanked out" spicy from your scedule :grin: :grin:
No spices at all? Not even...
Here's to both our birthday boys :beer: :birthdays: :beer:
I am still playing with the precious Caron-samples I recieved the other week, so Caron Poivre for me today :wave:
Continuing my Caron-adventures with Alpona, and wishing a great Monday to everyone! :wave:
Finally getting to try Bois des Iles, thanks to a kind basenoter!
Most of the classic Chanels I respect but can´t really get myself to like. This one though, started smooth-talking me at once. It...
I have the opposite problem too; often I read these reviews with lovely descriptions of jasmine or orange flower notes, but my nose digs straight down to the oriental base. It even took me quite a...
Oh, is that what it is from? If I wear Femme for several days in a row this note comes out more and more each day. It vaguely reminds me of som kind of plastic padding they used in a boat factory...
I don´t exactly love it but I like it, sometimes more sometimes less, if that makes sense ;) I had a week somewhere around spring/early summer when I craved it for an entire week. But at times...
