FOR SUNDAY, MARCH 11:PLOO-KUH-JAH-MAY, "more than ever." I wonder if this did not hail from the house of Guerlain if we would accord it as much reverence. Yes, it's pretty and, as my daughter would say about 99% of my fragrances, "It smells like perfume." Of the bergamot, ylang-ylang, neroli, iris, jasmine and vanilla, I detect the begamot and neroli the least, the jasmine and vanilla the most--jasmine seems to be the ring leader, and this particular vanilla may be the source for the soapy taste in my throat (or is that the ylang or iris?). I usually think of Guerlain's vanilla as different from others and part of the Guerlinade effect, but I don't recognize that characteristic here.

FOR MONDAY, MARCH 12:I'm with you, Elf. You stated the situation as well as I ever could. TVd'E is something of a comfort scent--a natural and familiar smell and nothing like what I'd expect to come out of a bottle. I'm not nuts about the spicy carnation top note, but it gives way to that sweet skin scent quickly enough.
