    Eau exquise, you smell exquisite! And happy, happy birthday Tovah! Hope you get many delicious-smelling somethings on your day.

    Trying on a few of the L'Artisans both for fun and to be able to have some clue what my other faves might be (besides Poivre Piquant) for the boys' "favorite L'Artisan" poll. Today I'm wearing Dzonkha. Later it'll be Patchouli Patch.

    Have a fabulous Wednesday, everyone!

    Guess who got a big, delicious package from Vijay of Maisonstinky, full of Montale samples, today?:bounce: :bounce:

    So far I am wearing: Aoud Queen Roses on left wrist (beautiful, simple, refined roses - I'm not getting much Aoud), Sandflowers on right wrist (fresh marine, but not headache inducing ozone), Greyland on right knee (spicy woods, so far, a little sharp and sweaty), and Intense Tiare on left knee (pineapple - or some other tropical fruit and rich flowers.)
    I tried some Aoud Cuir D'Arabie, as well, but the top notes tell me why Vijay's maison is stinky if this is what it smells like. It was very unpleasant at first. Extremely sour socks. It did settle down right away, but was too mild for my tastes. I'll give it another run, for sure, when I feel up to slathering it on and waiting out those scary top notes.
    :wave: Big thanks to Vijay for being such a generous enabler. You're great!

    AND

    :wave: Happy, happy birthday Tovah. Many sweet smelling returns!:wave:

    After wrestling with Shalimar last night, and realizing that I am a doomed woman in the House of Guerlain, I turn my back on that house entirely and choose
    Bois des Iles from Chanel.
    I feel the need for the smooth sometimes aloof atmosphere of Chanel after having my insides turned out by Guerlain.
    We must have some unsolved karma in a past life or something!

    I may even venture into Hermes territory later and try 24 like purplebird.
    and last but not least....
    Happy Birthday Tovah!!!

    something quite unsual happened today.

    i was alone at the office pantry heating my guava jelly & penaut butter sandwich when this guy comes in ( i kinda like him but i think he's too cocky, he never really speaks to me anyway)

    Cocky Jake: " That's smells really good" ( From the door 5 feet away from me)
    Nina: You want some wheat bread ? ( looking at the toaster)
    Cocky Jake: Comes closer. And and takes a deep breath.
    No you smell good.
    Ferragamo>?
    Nina: Raising an eyebrow " No!, CHANEL".
    Jake: Smiles and walks out the door.

    WTF?! My friend told me that was just a pick up line that most guys use.

    And i was like i never get that really. anyway im glad that somebody liked my Coco Mad EDP aside from me and my boyfriend.

    I guess im flatterred in a way.

    Nina: Blushing.

    Djuna, hello from a live long Cabochard addict ) Femme/Rochas and Cabochard where my first "signature" fragrances escorting me since 1960! Reformulated then, anyway I am really happy they were never discontinued.

    Today I am wearing ORRIS/Tauer, actually this week I am living in a sort of "Tauer delirium"... According to perfumer Andy Tauer, his goal "was to create a scent that captures the iris note and plays with it, brings out its erotic line and its dark woody, almost leathery quality."
