    It started off very spicy this morning and now turning into a sugar bomb.
    Switched to Le Male after work.

    Sampling Annam from Tan Giudicelli again.

    My dearest Black Lady, why did you have to throw this beauty into my lap, eh?
    I am in big trouble now, so hopelessly in love with Annam

    And guess what? It is discontinued! Of course it had to be discontinued again

    Only for sale on what seems to be Russian sites. Me, looking with longing, lovesick eyes at incomprehensible words. The agony!

    I want to be adopted by LIB. With unlimited access to the fragrant treasure-trove of my new Italian mommy :bounce:

    I´m indulged in Vanille Noire du Mexique today. Love this one, and (over-)spray it just as much as my heart and nostrils wish for.

    A few degrees below zero here today, but stormy. Felt like I was trying a Jackass stunt when I ran the few meters to bring in the mail...

    Like Riannon, "I want to be adopted by LIB." :bounce:

    Based on her recommendations I ordered from Jazztweety and my three samples arrived yesterday (record time!) :bounce: and this morning I carefully showered and laid down my base of pure jojoba and sprayed on Avicina and I am in heaven!

    The bright peppery opening blast mentioned by others does not happen on my bod! Rather a slow insinuation of cinnamon orange that blossoms into subtle full bosomed roses of a glowing burgundy, underlaid with oppoponax and creamy sandalwood. And I've only had it on for a few hours.

    Can't wait to see how this develops throughout the day - already mysterious and captivating. Many thanks to LIB and to Jazztweety!

    Freezing cold day here in Trondheim: 16 below zero and strong wind.

    Instead of taking a shower (overslept ), I sprayed my whole body liberally with guerlains vetiver. Then applied Organza bodylotion and the eau de parfum.

    I have never been a "Givenchy girl "; so all their frags are new to me...they didn't appeal to me when I was younger; don't think I will be a fan now either...have to try a few more I guess.

    The new Mitsouko, which I still love dispite being completely brainwashed by vintage 70s Mitsouko. The current formula takes longer to get through the wood to the peach, but it is still quite beautiful and develops nicely on me. And I am very grateful to have smelled the vintage Mitsouko. Now I must get the notion out of my mind that the old way is how it is "supposed to" smell. Times change, ingredients change, people's tastes change.
    That is the way it goes for every vintage perfume. Even if a perfumer wanted to make it exactly the same, it probably would be impossible.

    It's a sunny 70 degrees F here today--we slept with the windows open and now the back door is also open. Cats and dog are very happy.

    What a luscious combo this must be!
    I had the pleasure of trying Cuir Venenum last night and was enchanted with the leather and the coconut smoothness of it (Thank you Quinpus!)
    My first try of the Parfumerie Generale line. A bit dismayed that I like it so much at first sniff.

    Today I went for my comforting combo of Chanel no 19 and Sa Majeste la Rose which makes me feel like I am softly enveloped in a sweet rose garden with plenty of lush green grass underfoot.

    Tonight, in honor of the awards, I am trying my sample of Shalimar Light ( thank you Shades of Blue) and am delighted to say that it seems to like me!
    This is giving me what I had hoped for from Shalimar. I guess in my case for this frag, less is more. The lemony note is more clean and distinct , the fragrance overall feels more bright. I may give it a full wearing tomorrow.

    Everyone here smells so good today, such a tapestry of scents.

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."
