    Ah, olfactory electro-spring-shock. I slathered myself in Pennhaligon's Bluebell lotion, which I haven't worn since spring. I feel like a happy bulb. Amazing!

    First by Van Cleef and Arpels. Nice on a crisp December shopping day. It's sort of made to go with wool sweaters and wool coats.

    Tabac Blond EDC today. I'm beginning to think I should get a second 170ml like Tinker did.

    Problem may be longevity - it's only been an hour and AMOH is fading fast. Waaaah! But it's been a great hour!
    I had the same response initially, and found a more generous initial spritzing held up pretty well (lilacs for several hours, the musk/sandalwood drydown for 10 hrs or so).

    I'm a nut for lilacs (grew up in a house with a hedge full) so AMOH is on my short list for spring. And given the pricing is for a relatively generous 2.5 oz, I won't mind carrying a purse spray around for touchups.

    Lady In Black, try adding some Lolita Lempicka to your Bulgari. I find that the two seem to accentuate one another beautifully and the longevity is increased.

    Today a friend at work let me sample her Tovah. I was surprised. It is a nice citrusy, light scent, like sweet lemonade, at least to my nose. I liked it very much. The drydown was a bit musky on me, though, maybe it is my skin chemistry. The most similar thing in my wardrobe to this would be my Chanel no. 19, I think. I'm just really into my deeper darker scents these days.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Thank you rtamara41, I'll try layering Black with LL for sure, although I fear that the slight star anise note in Black will be enhanced by the licorice in LL, too

    I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
