    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 bottles

    Thanks Lady_in_Black.

    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!

    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 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 too am wearing DZONGKHA today, compliments of Twolf who sent me a generous sample!!! I'm loving the drydown 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.

    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.

    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!

    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...

    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.
