    Frank Los Angeles - pale and gray and wet here in Denmark, my sleep has been shattered by my boyfriend's early departure for iaido, and I have several shots of espresso humming about within. It seemed (espresso logic) an excellent occasion to give this fragrance another trial, I'd so hoped it'd would be what it somehow has not quite managed to be... YET

    Gap Grass. It smells a little soapy but then it's 8 or 9 years old... I tried it again last night and after the soapy smell has left it smells just like it used to.

    Bathed self in Gres' Cabochard edt. Still complex and lovely - a floral chypre with hints of citrus and leather - SO elegant. But not like it used to be. Lacking the depth I remember - but still beautiful.

    Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! May we all take advantage of an excuse to pay special/different attention to those we love (romantically or otherwise) and eat good chocolate while ignoring the commercial hype.

    I have decided to go on a gourmand/chocolate binge in honor of the day: On one arm, Yves Rocher Neonatura Cocoon (which I expected to adore, but so far the big blast of patchouli is making me feel even more like a tree-huggin' earth mama than I already do most of the time... Holding out for the drydown), on the other arm, Mat;Chocolat , which I am liking VERY much from the start!

    Tonight, continuing the chocolate theme, it will be Frederic Malle's wonderful Musc Ravageur, which dries down to milk chocolate on my skin.

    Riannon, you are in good hands with Taolady planning to distract the prison guards, but please let us know if you also need back-up... BNers world-wide will descend _en masse_, armed with atomizers of our best-sillage frags, and stun the poor jailers into submission!

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!
    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 Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Icy snow out here in NJ, home from work on this Happy Valentine's Day. Honey took me out to breakfast and I left the house without applying fragrance and after rummaging in my purse found a roll on of Velvet Flowers (applied to wrists) Dug further and found my purse spray of Coco...couldn't stop myself, gave a modest spritz to each inner forearm. WHEW!
    I like it. I really like it.
    It's like they are having a dance about the Maypole, these two scents.

    Have a good day, all. And Mystery Femme, you deserve better. My humble opinion - dump the guy. Though I know I shouldn't give advice...

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."

    The storm called for Tabac Blond extrait under my sweater. Lovely!

    Unfortunately I was overly cautious and under-applied a bit. (Yesterday I was subjected to a student wearing an Angel imitator, 3-4 feet away I was still in her scent for a couple of hours.)

    And then I remembered. Valentine's Day. The s.o. is quite allergic to tobacco. No clue how he will react as I have always avoided tobacco around him - I know he gets hives from the tomato (less allergic than to tobacco) in pizza, but that is consumed. I guess it is good I under-applied.

    But overall... Mmmmm ... I smell wonderful.

    We've been having a HUGE snowstorm for the past two days now and I'm home from work for the 2nd day in a row. My sweet DH had to go to work however .

    I'm wearing Velvet Flowers applied to my wrists but I'll wear something else for the evening out with my darling... he still insists we go out and celebrate at the restaurant where we had out first date .

    I think that for the evening I'll be wearing Lipstick Rose ...

    Today I wore CdG2 layered with Un Lys - not bad, not bad at all, but Un Lys surrendered very quickly.
    Now I just felt a terrible craving for POTL, so I sprayed it on liberally.

    Happy Valentine's Day to all my basenotes friends!

    I sent my sons off to school with the same wish, and wiggling eyebrows and they figured out I'll make a special evening for them (LOL, and me!) We will a double dinner of both their favorites, and flowers on the table, with a small wrapped gift--very small. I have a dozen packets of flower seed for Jon-- he's really on a plant kick, and I printed the receipt for $15.00 deposited in Sam's "Maplestory" account, so he can--get this--buy his little on-line character a new haircut and a fancy coat.

    I'll be in Clinique's Happy Heart (thanks Tovah!) just for it name , though I like it, too.

    It's still 9:35PM on Valentine's Day here in Alaska...Today I wore Serge Lutens Tubreuse Criminelle, which smelled like Dr. Pepper and Root Beer when I first applied it! I was shocked...it dried down to a creamy, gorgeous floral.

    Later in the day I touched up with Lutens A La Nuit...I've been luxuriating in floral all day! It's unusual for me, being a girl who is all about the spicy orientals. It's heavenly!

    Welcome LadyAnne! :wave:
    ........

    SO is working hard lately, so has humbly requested that we postpone Valentine's celebrations til the weekend. But he still gave me a priceless present of taking the day off and staying home with me (This is a stupendous gift from a near workaholic with looming deadlines)!! :toppie:

    I began the day with a combo of Nemat Musk Supreme oil + Serge Lutens Daim Blond. This is a recent favourite discovery of mine and a true keeper. SO adores it also (read my fuller review on the Great Layering Challenge - Animalics thread) so it was a great start to the day!

    Later I wore Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque (from sample). I once again get the close similarities to Caron Tabac Blond. SO, sadly, was less then impressed with this. Received only a meh! response. Not sure whether I should continue to try to get a bottle.

    I ended the day late last night with Nemat Musk Supreme oil + TBS Mostly Musk oil. I do believe know that there is such a thing as too much musk! Not offensive, thankfully, but enough for me to feel taht may be my sillage was assaulting rather than tantalising. TBS Mostly Musk oil, though woody, is actually quite animalic on my skin (smells like aroused flesh) and the extra boost of the animalic Nemat Musk Supreme just pushed it over into blatant pornographic advertising!
