    Sunday... I have my mum's shopping list. I better be a good girl and complete my mission.
    Testing Keiko Mecheri's Myrrhe & Merveilles, reading from luciouscargo, here is the composition: white almonds, myrrh, Chinese mandarin, balsam, Moroccan jasmine and white musk.
    Undecided about this one. I will pay attention to the changes.

    Verdict: I didnt like the Myrrhe & Merveilles. It smells like leather / furniture polish to me... Will give this a miss.

    I went to the Chanel counter and sprayed some CoCo Parfum in the last afternoon. So provocative and feisty that it knocks me off to unconsciousness.

    A warm welcome to Snap! I just know you are going to love it here

    For me today

    There are two huge parcels with samples waiting for me and knowing my impatient nature, I will probably end up wearing all of them.

    Enjoy your Scented Sunday, everybody!

    Today I'm wearing a pot-pourri of amber scents: Marc Jacobs Amber generously sprayed all over myself, L'Ambre d'Or on the right arm and MPG Ambre Précieux on the left. I'm happily at the centre of a golden, fragrant cloud...

    Carnal Flower's got her hold on me today...
    "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

    Got some Montale Aoud Rose Petals from maisonstinky.
    Whoaaaaa! Roses! Deep, fragrant, glowing, neon, roses. This is crazy stuff. Divine. Beautiful bouquet. Creative, bold, fantastic. FBW. HG. Definitely makes a statement.

    Wearing my new Blv Notte by Bvlgari. Yumm! (I think it will do better in the evening, but at home on a Sunday is a good way to test drive, no? )

    Also - thanks to musse & purplebird for the warm welcomes on Saturday's SotD!! *waves hello*

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Welcome, snap and nadine!

    It's winter and I am feeling contrary today (what a shock ) so sniffed several vials of the Rose de Rosine line, decided on La Rose de Rosine. Probably not for me, but definitely a change of pace.

    Notes: Head - Violet, marigold, ylang ylang, roses.
    Heart - Rose, jasmine, iris.
    Base - Tonka bean, benzoin resin, Peruvian balsam.

    Later today I will swap to Rose d'Ete and see how that one plays out on my skin.

    Notes: Head - Apple, galbanum, bergamot.
    Heart - Yellow rose, linden blossom, mimosa, lotus blossom.
    Base - Ambrette seed, musk.


    Enjoy your Sunday, everyone!
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    I'm sampling Bois de Paradis from Parfums Delrae, and... ladies and gentlemen, I believe we have an HG. I don't understand how this beauty has flown under the radar for so long. The notes are rose, blackberry, cedarwood, sandalwood, cinnamon, and bergamot, and it is (in my opinion) very womanly (queenly, actually, if that's even a word) but its dark, woody character would make it very suitable for some men.


    Favorite Notes:
    Rose, Apricot, Violet, Leather, Iris, Blackberry, Saffron, Musk, Incense

    I'm not wearing anything yet, might go to the Mall & spray myself silly. Usually I wear Kenzo Jungle. I have 30 bottles of fragrance, but that's the only one that I'm comfortable wearing lately. Used to spritz Fendi for many years, was my signature scent, but either the formula was tweaked, or my chemistry tweaked it. Have a good day!!!!

    I'm sampling Ava-Luxes today, so I'm a melange. So far, Midnight Violet, Moss, and Cafe Noir are workking their way into my shopping basket. Yum. Possibly Turkish Vanilla as well.

    I'm starting to feel like I'm getting sick, so soon I'll take a bath and be frag-free until I know.

    How funny! Just got back from a week in the NC mountains in which I LIVED in Ava-Luxes of an astonishing variety. How likely is that! Loved most of them - especially the florals, White Lilac especially.

    Anyway it's good to be back and today - never in step with the rest of the gang - i'm in SL Chergui!! Can't get too much of Serge (so far!).

    Warm welcomes to all the newbies to the Basenotes. Hope you will enjoy your stay as I have been!

    Welcome back to Taolady, was expecting you to drop by our forum yesterday.

    Was playing vegetable all day today: slept till noon, read a book, cooked a few sausages with German potato salad (which is not a salad altogether), put together four Basenote packages (be informed, be very informed! ), stitched a bit, walked the dog, tore off the chain activating the light in the pantry. All wearing wonderful Mauboussin by Patrick Mauboussin.
