    I'm trying Madame Rochas again today. First I loved it, then went off it completely in the space of a week. I'm wearing it now and am very unsure. To me it smells too smoky, and I'm not in the mood for smoke.

    I wish I had a more sophisticated nose.

    I've just looked up the reviews for this and they are quite funny. One reviewer finds it so sexy he wants to sleep with himself. So that's the mood you are in. I must try this one.
    I want to try other Frederic Malles as well. Should I be looking for anything special?

    Gorgeous indeed. I adore the topnotes of Narcisse Noir more than any other scent. On me it tends to soften too soon, but on the occasions when I wear it I feel wonderful.

    Ehmm, not quite the mood I was in when I wrote that, but it is a sweet thought. I felt more in the line of 'Conan the Destroyer' (good old Arnold Schwarzenegger).

    But indeed, this is for me the best Malle there is (but who am I?)
    I also love L'Eau d'Hiver and Noir Epices.
    Maybe you could visit Malle's site and read about the notes: http://www.editionsdeparfums.com/mallesite_gb/index.htm

    You can fill in their 'questionnaire' and they will give you a scent advice.
    And when you are really lucky they will even send you some samples

    Dzongkha today - thanks again to Wolfie. It opened with a salty Iris-vetiver statement underlaid with a hint of incense. There's a hint of sharp spiciness too and at least one reviewer has mentioned leather in the drydown. Hasn't happened yet - but I am hopeful.

    I really like the Artisan frags I've tried but I have to be dipped in them to experience the strong presence I prefer. (Not a problem - this is a very generous sample!! :bounce

    Later: The leather showed up! Gaw-juss!

    I suspect I'll wear something else after my shower, though. Maybe Kiehl's musk, though I enjoyed my Prive Cuir Amethyste so much yesterday, it might get second wearing.

    testing Ayala Moriel's Film Noir, the "basenotes only" perfume of dark chocolate, patchouli, and myrrh. On this blustering, windy, frigid day, it is the one source of comfort in my commute. Gourmandish but not in an obvious or annoying way, the dark chocolate is velvet and spice; the myrrh adding complexity to this gorgeous brew. I love it!

And now I believe I am going into a period of just wanting Chanel No 19... Have I got myself too wonderful frags with too little time in between?

    COunt me in for that thread! next week is my Montale week, I think , and I am already dipping into my samples. I have a total of ten or eleven! YAY!

    Margareta, I hear you re: No. 19. It is a beautiful fragrance and I could totally see wanting to wear it everyday for a good stretch of time. It seems to have multifaceted qualities to it.
    I have also had good experiences layering it with some sweeter or spicier frags. I was surprised at how nicely it supports others. Must be the green.

    Suffering a bit of a fragrance slump here, but managed to apply some much neglected Etro Etra today. It was delightful - boozy, aromatic, sheer yet deep. Very reminiscent of my much maligned beauty Chopard Madness.

    I am now going to search out something animalic so that I can ressurect my poor neglected animalic layering challenge...
