I just received a sample pack of the Xerjoff line from a dear friend, and I'm testing two--Kobe and Nio. One is waaaaaay too herbal, and the other is reminding me of lemon jello for some reason. Not my speed. Good thing the day is young!
Lys Bleu was an accidental antique find, just recently I saw it in Brielle's Wardrobe and I sent some to a few of my BN friends. I am still interested in reading more about Royalissime from the same house.
HappyBirthday to Le Grand Duc!
I hope you have a wonderful day!
I'm wearing Chanel Beige (thanks much to Sunnyfunny!). This one just blew me away, because it was so unexpected. I love it. Must acquire some. As Taoladay says: Are we not blessed in our Basenotes friends? Does it not cost us money?
Maroma Night Jasmine, a perfume oil I bought yesterday at Whole Foods. This is sweet, not indolic, and actually smells like the oil I used to buy back in high school (late 60s/early 70s) at a shop that sold "hippie" type stuff! Takes me right back.
Oh no! You Duckness! I wish I knew before I donned New Haarlem on, I wish I knew it was your Majesty's birthday, I'd be wearing my Espirit de Parfum Poison from the 1990s! But nooooo.... silly me!
Happy Birthday to you!
Castorpollux, happy birthday too!
Hugs to those who want them today.
I love that coffee absolute smell that's coming from me.
Duc, it's your birthday?! Here's a little serenade for you, our favorite fine-feathered friend:

Lilybelle, I was blown away by this one too. I don't usually take to Chanel, and the name Beige just leaves me cold. But OH what a beautiful white floral it is. I love the frangipani/plumeria in it!
This morning I sampled two Annick Goutals, Chevrefeuille (kinda pretty) and Eau de Ciel (soapy-musty on me). Soaked in the hot tub with a good book to catch some rays (I fill the hot tub with cool water for a pretend swimming pool), showered, and then spritzed liberally with Goutal's Vetiver, which I adore!
The girl & I are doing much better, had a good day. Even went to an art supply store for Copic markers for her to work on three political cartoons for her social studies project. She missed three days of school last week, so she will have a lot of work to do.
On a positive note, she got her high academic achievement award. Her daddy & I are very proud of her.
