    decided to try another of the samples I've accumulated the past couple of months - Escape by Calvin Klein.
    Well, it sounded nice, but on my skin, all I could/still can smell is sandalwood - none of the other notes came through except that. Oh well...
    Hope you all have a great Tuesday!!

    Kenzo Amour for me today. On my skin it actually reminds me of snow, as the only one of my perfumes. It is really comforting, but also have a chill-ness who is attractive.
    Faves right now: Chanel No 19, Stella Rose Absolute, L´Heure Bleu, Elixir de Merveilles, Samsara.

    If the rest of the year will be like this day......

    I could not log in , got the flu, made a fool of myself, what more could I wish for eh?

    So: Encens et Lavande (SL), Amber and Lavender (JM), Lavande (Fragonard), Velours Lavande (Guerlain), Lavender (Woods of Windsor) and a hint of Jicky because of the delicious Lavender topnote.

    That is what I would call layering!

    Did someone say: lavender OD?

    Woah, Riannon, talk about some "COMBINEREN" there! So sorry to hear about your flu, but this fragrant medicine must be a quick healer! Please don't let the fact that I'm wearing...

    Well, I've still got the CODE so my first encounter with Santa Maria Novella and her Nostalgia is kinda wasted on me. Past the first blast of old motor oil, could only get a bit of Naugahyde and now a bit of vanilla musk. Sense a quality frag under there and I CAN'T SMELL IT!!! Waaaah!

    Will have to go with something stronger. Copy-cat Riannon and overload on leather! :bounce:

    I was wondering about your whereabouts, Riannon, since I didn't see you posting VERY early as you always do, but now it's all clear...sorry dear that you got the flu, hope you will recover very soon! I gather you love a lavender note in perfumes? What a layering experience!

    I pulled a rather unbelievably stupid move today... Went into work after my family's big Open House yesterday (leaving the REAL clean-up still to be done), only to discover that months ago I'd requested the day off! Put in a couple of hours, turned around and came home. At least the house will be back in order today; but of course I'm procrastinating here on Basenotes!

    I'm wearing SL's Mandarine Mandarin today. Spicy and citrusy. Love the richness of this scent. Do I smell cumin in there?

    My Apothia samples arrived. I'm going to try to give MM enought time to get to know me a bit, but the lure of the unknown is pretty hard to resist. Maybe I'll make one of them my Scent of the Night.

    I could have written this, had a rough day back to work, broke down crying mid afternoon, the one consolation I had was my SL Fleurs d'Oranger ( and friends at work, thank goodness) but tonight I am wearily treading home and am wrapping myself in a soft cloak of Creed Jasmin Impeatrice Eugenie from a sample I had overlooked weeks ago. It is simply perfect, I must say, just the scent I needed for a gentle night. I have been wanting something decidedly feminine after a patch of whip cracking with my Tabac Blond love, (I still love Tabac Blond, mind you, just I need a softer touch right now) and this Creed is smooth, creamy , elegant and womanly. Soft flowers, soft flowers, I am cloaked in a bed of soft flowery prettiness.
    Now, two hours later, the drydown has evolved into a silky sandalwood. ahhh....

    "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."

    Happy New Year!

    Sounds like some of us are having bummer starts to the New Year. I spilled coffee all over my kitchen this morning after I failed to put the POT underneath the brewing mechanism. So when I went to the dr this morning I was wearing coffee smell, plus my SOTD Lolita Lempicka. Not too bad of a combo, except for the stain.

    My, my you and I are wearing the same scent after all today. I spilled coffee all over myself; but unlike you I failed to connect the rim of the cup with my lips and down the warm coffee poured... now I smell like a mixture of fresh coffee and Gaultier2 .
