    Re: Tuberose Angelica by Jo Malone

    I might actually like this - I find many of the Jo Malones pleasant but uncompelling, but I am a big fan of tuberose. It is April and not showing up at Nordstrom yet.

    I had a sample of No. 88, which I liked, but I gave it away (to Al Gae I think) because it's just a bit too masculine on me.

    From SMN I bought a little pack of burning papers - my husband doesn't like incense in the house because the fragrance is heavy and it lasts for hours, but the burning papers give a little jolt of...

    Good evening, all. Today I wore Vol d'Hirondelle by LM Parfums. It's sad that this one doesn't get as much blog and forum love as others in the line - it's a very pleasurable fragrance, especially...

    I can possibly attend. I'll ask the Mr and see if he wants to come along, although we were thinking of maybe a couple's trip to NYC around that time so that would take priority for us.
