Been AWOL for a bit, personal stuffs.
I'm loving Dead Sexy by TokyoMilk today.
Missed you all!
Going uber-sweet with Posset's The Girls Love Vanilla. I love the honey notes.
Posset's Frou Frou. So far this one is quickly becoming a favorite of all the ones I've sniffed.
Safran Troublant today. I love this one even more in the cold weather.
Checking out Posset's Eve today, and will have to think of something suitably celebratory for my oldest SS's birthday tonight.
Chanel Allure Sensuelle today.
Started off the day scent twins with RHM, testing TdC Sublime Balkiss. After chores & a shower, I switched off to Jovoy Chypre. I really really really like it, and added a FB to my Christmas Wish...
Posset's Nevada Heat for morning chores & laundry. This afternoon- we'll see :)
Forgot it was SnS Saturday, but coincidentally tried on Posset's Gingerbread Crackhouse this morning. It is sweeter than I expected, with the ginger, but all in all quite yummy and suitable for the...
Spending Saturday in the Crackhouse... the Gingerbread Crackhouse that is :) Trying a Posset a day until I sample all I ordered (and the generous extras).
Tao, I love Missoni too.
Well I didn't get Cadjmere for my birthday... but I bought some from a kind BNer! I am now swearing off purchases until after Christmas. I hope :p
Thanks for the fabulous birthday wishes :) I'm in a rawtha crabby mood this morning, so reading these helped immensely. I probably just need more caffeine, lol.
:birthdays: Happy Birthday for my...
Trying out Dead Sexy by Tokyomilk today. Vanilla and orchid, not a new pairing but I like it. Slightly sweeter than Vaniglia del Madagascar, and much less $$$.
Bump - I need an address for the next recipient!
I'll also try to post my impressions ASAP.
Treated myself to a few Posset goodies today, can't wait for them to arrive!
I went for La Mome today. Great big (((hug))) to those who need or want it.
Wanted something snuggly today, so I went with Voile d'Ambre again. Looking forward to the kiddo going back to school tomorrow, he is driving me up the wall :p
Happy Birthday Kumquat!!
Enjoying PG Iris Taizo today.
Random spritzing all day today, but I've ended up in Cologne du 68. For some reason this makes me think of my Dad, this would have smelled great on him.
Aomassai for the morning of lounging about, and I'll probably go for 10 Corso Como for dinner at my FILs. Please, oh merciful Goddess, that I don't go after some of the family with a carving knife :)
Went through my book marks and most of the suppliers have stopped carrying pre-mixed refills. Taylored Concepts still does though, and they have a gazillion scents to choose from. ...
Right now I smell of the soap I just put to bed (White Willow & Green Tea) but after lunch and a shower I'm going to take a page from SMM's book and break out my Voile D'Ambre. Good juice, good price!
Right now I am smelling like one of my all-time favorites, LB Venezia. Made a small perfume spray from my duped oil for someone and managed (oops!) to get some on me :rolleyesold: Yum yum yum.
Do you mean a base that you can mix with scents, or premixed?
In my house, it is mostly wax melts (wonder why, lol) followed by candles, though I usually burn more for testing purposes. I have a few diffusers in smaller rooms too.
24 Faubourg, yum yum.
SotEvening is the beloved Cadjmere, going out to dinner for the little man's birthday.
Taking Les Senteurs Gourmandes Musc Blanc for a test sniff. Nice as a comfort scent, but I don't know if I would wear it enough go full bottle.
Had to take advantage of the BeautyHabit sale, so I picked up L'Occitane Miel et Citron, and TokyoMilk Dead Sexy.
YES I am! Come on birthday!!!
Doesn't Tao like Cedre?
Who enjoys some Balmain La Mome?
House twins with Roberto today, in Acqua de Sale. I really need to try some more Profumum scents, I've enjoyed all I've sniffed so far.
As I am wrapping up my cleaning frenzy, I went with L'Occitane Honey & Lemon for my morning spritz.
Happy Friday everyone!
Having a hard time choosing, so I shot myself with PG L'Oiseau de Nuit (thanks Haunani!). Now I'm off to steam some more carpet , wheeeeeeeee.
I'm enjoying some L'Occitane Honey & Lemon today & tonight. Too pooped to even think.
FM Musc Ravageur today. I love when I catch a whiff of it and think "DAMN, I smell good!" :laugh:
SotE (over the bleach and Mrs Meyers basil cleaner) is TokyoMilk Honey & The Moon. I'm getting my sugar fix! Thinking about trying Dead Sexy next.
I have the goods! Haven't had a chance to check everything out, but I will :)
Egad, is is Monday already? I have housecleaning of epic proportions on the schedule today (company coming) so I have on my grubbies. I think Dolce Vita will help me to whistle while I work :D
Having a really hard time deciding today... what goes well with hyper kids, laser tag, pizza and birthday cake?
Think I'll probably end up going with Champs-Elysees.
After wrestling with replacing a toilet (BLECH!) I showered & doused myself with YR Iris Noir.
The one I really really really really really want right now is Parfumerie Generale Cadjmere. Come ON, birthday!
Chanel is doable, I haven't seen dupes of the others.
Went for some Creed Virgin Island Water this morning.
Well, sadly I missed the chance to nap, and now I am just in a haze. Need to get dinner started, but I find I am oddly (ha ha) unmotivated.
Aomassai this evening.
Enjoying my recent FB purchase of Chanel Allure Sensuelle today. And soon I am going to treat myself to something TRULY spectacular...
A NAP :D
Have to go BACK to the Book Fair tonight, the insane evening shift. So I went with 10 Corso Como, it just invigorates me!
Hitting myself with New Haarlem again. There is something in this one that just keeps pulling me back for another try. I'm going to secretly spritz my DH sometime too, hee hee.
I am so ready for...
Scent twins with Fleurry, Attrape Coeur for me as well. This one just makes me feel like Queen of the World (or for this week, Queen of the Book Fair :D).
Happy Birthday to Darkdreams, and...
I won't speak to sillage, but I sprayed some on before bed last night and I can still smell it this morning.
SInce I'm not a coffee drinker, I took a hit of New Haarlem to help wake me up this morning. Off to the Book Fair again, for some reason no one wants the early shift :rolleyesold:
I'm enjoying Micallef Note Ambree tonight. Many thanks to Haunani! I love amber so much :D
Missoni for me today, I need something perky to deal with the hordes of kids at the Book Fair.
My condolences to you & yours, Oud Girl.
Oh me too! I wanted the Cadjmere more, but I was quickly outbid. Time to start bending the DH's ear for my birthday...
Did score a FB of Chanel Allure Sensuelle for a good price.
Dunno, I haven't smelled that one. I've sniffed and sniffed H&TM, and to me it smells a bit like Pink Sugar, but the cotton candy of PS is smothered in honey and just a touch of jasmine. I avoid Pink...
Happy Birthday Exquisitely!
I still have some Cadjmere from my late night spritz, I MUST have a FB (or big ol' decant) soon!
After shower, it will be TokyoMilk Honey & the Moon. Almost...
Gone - dang you ladies are FAST!
OK, I have a 90% 1.7 oz bottle of Lilly Pulitzer Beachy, and as I already have a big bottle this sweetie will go to the first person who PMs me for it. Sadly it lost the super cute scarf but the...
I'm starting my morning off with Jovoy Paris Chypre, ((hugs)) to Tao. I really like this, it feels bright & sensual all at once. Of course the tiny roller bottle is just too uber-cute! Now I'll be...
I have a terrific story (NOT) about me, POTL, a migraine, and the toilet. Blech. I can't imagine what it would take to make me want to smell it again.
Scent of the Afternoon is Tokyomilk Honey &...
Stumbled out of bed, still getting whiffs of L'Occitane Honey & Lemon, so I hit myself with another spritz to see myself through getting the DS off to school. He's in a mood, we had a "gerbils escape...
Scent of the afternoon is the absolutely edible L'Occitane Honey & Lemon (:kiss::kiss::kiss: to Tao). Had a very nasty run in at the store where I sell my stuff and I really needed a happy pick-me...
Balmain La Mome today. This one just makes me feel like I am wrapped up in a rose & jam hug.
Hope you have a beyond fabulous birthday, Mo :birthdays:
tdem, isn't La Mome lovely? I think it is one of my favorite discoveries since joining BN. And affordable, woo hoo!
Trying Ajne Om this...
I know I have been remiss in updating what I have sampled. I'll spend some time on that for sure.
House twins with Tao today, in YR Iris Noir. So far I've enjoyed most of the YR scents I've sampled, and have found some of them to be quite nice (especially for the price point). I have a larger...
I spritzed on Champs-Elysees sometime this AM. Right now I smell mostly like bleach due to a leaky toilet situation. Blech.
SL Un Bois Sepia today. Working on seriously tossing junk from my upstairs storage closet. WHY in the world did I keep some of this crap? Time to simplify, simplify, & organize.
Picked L by Lempicka to go Trick-or-Treating in. My DS is driving me up the wall to go-go-go.
I didn't even HAVE any (non-dupe) Lutens, but I was thrilled to get a sample of Un Bois Sepia from rogalal. Now I can join in :D
Happy Birthday Ubu!!! Many happy returns for the lady kind enough to introduce me to the gorgeous Attrape Coeur!
SotD is Guerlain's Cologne du 68 (thanks to rogalal).
Sometimes I am just blown...
Enjoying the delight of 10 Corso Como today. Not sure if it is a great choice for my DS's Fall Party at school but oh well! At least I can go in feeling confident that it is highly unlikely anyone...
Happy Birthday to Lessa, and big anniversary congrats to Mr & Mrs Hebe :)
I've been in sample heaven today, trying all sorts of goodies. I ended up in Dans Tes Bras for the better part of the...
SotD was Missoni, but my SotE is a test of the yummah Ambre Narguile. I like it on me, but think it would be even more drool-worthy on the DH. Many many thanks to rogalal for the fabulous sample(s)....
I'm snuggling up in New Haarlem this cool morning. Now I need to get some caffeine INSIDE and get my butt in gear for a busy Monday.
Started out the morning with Chanel Allure Sensuelle, a bit of a hold over from a sample spill the night before. This afternoon, for amusement park tripping & pumpkin carving, Dolce Vita.
Crazed with indecision today, thus so far I'm scentless (and possibly senseless LOL).
Time for the blind grab into the sample box...
And it looks like it will be C&S Dark Rose this morning.
Despite my vow to stay out of TJ Maxx, I couldn't resist a bottle of Lolita Lempicka Forbidden Flower. I'm weak, what can I say :D
Hope you have a stupendous 50, SMM!
Today seemed like a good day for New Haarlem. I have a ton of housework I've neglected, and so I'm in a cleaning frenzy (though obviously NOT so frenzied that I...
My head is feeling back to normal, and now we are off to my son's 3rd grade program. For that, I think Aomassai. Suits the cool October evening!
No scent this AM as I am still recovering from a whopper migraine. Sadly, I think it may be the Mauboussin. I got a slight headache the first time I tried it, and I went all out yesterday and was...
Doing the Mauboussin thing again today. I can't decide if I like it, or if I really like it.
Cool & breezy this morning, simply divine Fall weather. Took Miss Season for a stroll in the backyard, and watched her chase the leaves. Silly girl!
Had such a hard time choosing this morning, so I...
Went with some YR Rose Absolute this morning. I see they have added a Jasmine to the Secrets d'Essences line. May have to add a mini of that to my next order.
I'm still here! I have some goodies from a friend in CA who makes natural perfumes I'm hoping to add to the package :)
Using up a bit more of my precious PG Cadjmere sample, I am going to be sooooo sad when it is gone.
I'm enjoying Mauboussin this lovely fall day!
Decided to give Bond's New Haarlem another shot this morning, and I am glad I did. It smells nothing like what I recalled, and I am enjoying it immensely. I may even spritz some on the DH, I think I...
La la la la la - ears plugged, I can't HEAR you... :evil:
This morning was Eau de Decant, but this afternoon is a test run of PDR Mythique.
I wore TDC Jasmin de Nuit a few times, and wasn't all that thrilled. Tried it again a few days ago and WOW I really found something I missed before.
With that in mind I am going back through my...
Celebrating at least a partial return to the world of the scented (I can SMELL!! sorta), I went with Dior's Dolce Vita.
Also happy that my DH may have a small job that will require us to travel...
If I went and had to pick five today, it would be:
ETA: Huh, I realize after looking at this there seems to be a common thread.
As my son likes to say when he is stopped up "I cat sbell" (I can't smell, LOL), and so am I again today. My fever has thankfully abated so I am trudging around trying to clean up the whirlwind...
Had eBay bucks to spend, so I went with a blind buy of Mauboussin. After reading the reviews it sounds right up my alley.
I feel like crap, and in need of a comfort scent. So I went with Balmain's La Mome. And as much as I love it, I don't think it is agreeing with my headache. I should know better, but there you go.
Right now the SotD is Lysol, as my little guy has tested positive for the H1N1 virus. Argh.
After I get done doing my best to germ-free the house, it will probably be my equivalent of a warm,...
SotMorning, Safran Troublant. It may be a bit much for a Tae Kwon Do tourney, which is my AM activity with DS. But hey, I want to smell good!
SotEvening, for an outdoor wedding, will be the divine...
A Happy Birthday to JamieB :birthdays:
Decided to test Yves Rocher's Rose Absolute this morning. It wasn't at all what I expected, and I rather like it. Doubt I would go full bottle but I will...
Last night I re-sampled PG Aomassai. The previous tests had me thinking my skin was just eating the scent, so I decided one last try and gave myself a healthy spritz before bed. I woke up around 1...
