Sublime for me again, have a marvy Monday!
"Wovon man nicht lesen kann, darüber muss man schreiben."
Sampling Marc Jacobs' Blush. Nice, girly, gentle, smells like jasmine tea, but ...not for ME, thanks.
“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”-Anais Nin

"Of the five senses, the sense of smell is incontestably the one that best conveys a sense of immortality."
The poor man's alternative to FM's Vétiver Extraordinaire. Even though one of these isn't a vetiver, I still find this true. They share the same beverage feeling as a matter of fact.
Calycanthus - Acca Kappa
Wishlist is pointless.
Marc Jacobs- my favourite white floral.

Carthusia Io Capri--tea & fig, a civilized, mind-clearing scent for work time.
Husband just walked in and asked what I was wearing (and made a face). Must not like the fig. That's why I haven't been wearing my Mathias L'Eau de Figue. We're always together, and I don't want to wear something he doesn't like. Decided to take the approach to convert his tastes and gave him a shot of Mathias on the wrist. He wrinkled his nose, but I know this can be an acquired taste. I really like how the Mathias smells on him, though. Stay tuned ...

We're twins today! Tabu for me as well.Originally Posted by tdem1961
I tried Chloe Narcisse but it's killin' me, I have to do something. Tuberose is too big, it's squishing me. The green galbanum-like topnote isn't enough to offset it.
