    I know this is a chypre but I got a very strong leather note to this when I sprayed it on this morning. This is a mystery to me.

    Switched to Serge Lutens - Clair De Musc in the evening

    I´m wearing my beloved Parfum Bespoke (Ozwald Boateng) today. Is it just me who likes this one on the board?

    I'm sitting here having my coffee ( it's 5:23 am !) before I head off to work and I am thinking I will wear Lolita Lempicka L today. I work in very close proximity with people so I have to be somewhat conservative with my fragrance choices. Have a great Wednesday!

    It's freezing cold but sunny here in London today, so I figured it was safe to road-test Hypnotic Poison. It's rather in your face, even though I only have the EDT. Liking it though.

    I've gone for broke today with lovely, lovely, Bellogia by Caron. One of the all-time greats. I'm so lucky that all the Caron fragrances I've tried thus far have worked for me. Bellogia is keeping me afloat today.

    I am wearing En Passant by Malle. First wearing of this delicate fragrance.
    "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

    Thanks to a mothering Wolf I am in Bulgarie Blu (enough already with the "v"s) today. For me a nicely balanced blend of Acacia, wisteria and flax flowers... with some woods and musk and.....GINGER!! The latter gives it an upbeat perkiness. Pretty way to spend this warming-up day (going to the 50's F) at the beach.

    (Would be heading for the edge of the cliff in Jasmine Imperatrice but I USED UP ALL THE SAMPLE, OBB! So - many thanks for the source tip. :bounce

    It's been bitter cold in NYC for the last 3 days in a row and I am fading like a flower in frost. Not fun. But I am testing Balenciaga Talisman thanks to an angelic BNer and I love it! Creamy and delicate, like an embrace. Looking up the notes presently!

    My big box of smellies came in from Parfum1.com I'm wearing my new Fracas edp.
    BTW he has the 3.4oz bee bottle of Chant d'Aromes for $38.95 plus there is a free shipping coupon for orders over $35 on the homepage. I'm NOT affiliated at all, I just think that's a great deal. I've noticed Chant d'Aromes is becoming a rarity these days

    Scott Walker's version is my favourite (of the English versions, that is). I love Marc Almond's voice but his music is sometimes a bit overproduced.

    I had Musc Ravageur on the menu for today, wanting to stay with Maurice Roucel for a week! What was I thinking? I am not a faithful woman; I cannot stick with Lutens for a week, or Gurelain, or much less anything else... I know, I know, I need to be watched . Carefully watched!

    But, when Prada purrs and sings to me, no one else better stand in the way , come to think of it, it was Prada like an enchantress, a singing Siren, that persuaded me to abandon Lutens during his big week! So Prada it is for me, on this cold cold day of what feels like -20°C.
