Lievje, in Europe they can be purchased only at Chanel boutiques. And with the new exclusive line being released, all scents will come only in enormous 200 ml bottlesOriginally Posted by lievje
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
DIOR'S ADDICT for me on this freezing day!
Santa Maria Novella
Bright, sunny and cold here today. Omnia Crystalline for me.
I'm testing 2 Malle fragrances. First is Noir Epices. The notes are: Orange, Rose, Geranium, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Clove, Pepper, Patchouli, Sandalwood and Cedar. I think I don't like this one.
Second is L'Eau d'Hiver. Notes: Bergamot, Angelica, Iris, Hawthorn, Jasmine, Hay, Carnation, White Heliotrope, Caramel and Musk. This one is beautiful!
Some books are undeservedly forgotten, none are undeservedly remembered - W.H. Auden
L'Eau d'Hiver tops the charts for today, I also put some on for the morning after reading its name four or five times! It is a nice, icy blast of white heliotrope that I like most, me thinks.
Will wear my old trusted friend Coriandre to work.
I too am wearing DZONGKHA today, compliments of Twolf who sent me a generous sample!!! I'm loving the drydown too!Originally Posted by Taolady
Jo Malone Orange Blossom layered with Bulgari Voile de Jasmin and a couple of spritzes of Kai.
Bois des Iles for me too!
Chanel No 19 today. I absolutly love this one right now! - But this also scares me a bit, for just a fourthnight ago I absolutley loved Shalimar, and thoughted I was going in to a period of just wanting to wear that one. 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?
Faves right now: Chanel No 19, Stella Rose Absolute, L´Heure Bleu, Elixir de Merveilles, Samsara.
Polo Sport for Men
Divine Messe de Minuit after sauna. Perfect match for cuddling up with Bram Stoker's Dracula!
"Wovon man nicht lesen kann, darüber muss man schreiben."
It's a whiteout here today. Four inches of snow and freezing
cold. Yves Rocher's COCOON (still not featuring in the basenotes
directory!!) is a warm cup of hot cocoa laced with patchouli.
Kingdom for me today.
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Gris Clair for the first part of the day; will be sampling some Montales this evening to get ready for the upcoming Montale review thread that Purplebird mentioned. (Btw, thank YOU Purplebird for suggesting the swap!)
Le Baiser Du Dragon
I tragically wore my very last spritz of Chinatown today I was thinking I could not bear to wait until I got near a Saks to purchase a full bottle ( one whole week), then I remembered I had received a generous sample from a basenoter ( bless you Shycat I may survive until next Friday )
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!Originally Posted by Silvergirl
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.
"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
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...
Favourite (Winter) Crazy Combos
Tabu + Orange Blossom * Hermes Rouge + Bellodgia* Voleur du Roses+ Rose Ispahan * Rasa Extreme + Paris * Wood Coffee + Cafe Noir *
This morning: continued my Je Reviens sampling project with the edt.
This afternoon: Spritzed on Charlie White for an afternoon refresher.
This evening: Murmure by Van Cleef & Arpels is giving me my jasmine fix.
I guess that's enough for today.
I've continued on with my vanilla week with L'Artisan Vanilia yesterday and Aquolina Pink Sugar today.
