    I got up at 6:40am this morning, felt really bored so I went and tested White Musk by Montale (a gift from a lovely basenoter)... This is one unusual musk, revolves around violet and ylang ylang which is an interesting combo.
    I put on SJP's Lovely and went out to repair my nail and got a pair of jeans.
    I finally found a special occassion to wear GM's favourite ... spot light please!

    If you think fragrance fans are wild, you should see a gathering of coaster enthusiasts (they're really "loopy":bounce: --at least those who love steel coasters go in loops).

    Wearing Plus Que Jamais (sample left over from Guerlain week).

    I'm just not satisfied with the spring scents I have on hand, and everything I've been ordering/swapping for has been delayed for a variety of reasons: Wet Garden, Nanadebary Green, Shalimar Light.

    Beautiful sunny Spring day here today, so decided to test my FLEURS D' ORANGER. I've only had it on for about 20 mins. but I know already I'm going to love this one. I don't normally like big sweet florals, so I'm a little surprised, but this one's gorgeous, and will likely be put on my "To Buy" list. Lovely!

    Ooooh, everything turns sweet on me...!! Today Le Baiser du Dragon didn´t work. At first it was nice, but after two hours it was nothing but sweet...! It has not turned out this way during all the winter! Perhaps this is happening because today is an early day of spring...? Anyhow, I now has changed to Chanel No 19, who is as wonderful as I expect.

    Today is *finally* sunny and the palest promise of spring is in the air (though we are scheduled for snow tomorrow! My younger son made a specific scent request of me today, and it was fitting to oblige him... Napa Valley's Cielo. Notes include sweet pea, fig and cassis, and Daphne odora.

    I don't know how long you've been wearing Halston, but do you notice a difference? I first wore this in the seventies (giving away my age here...lol...) then it smelled really special & full bodied, now it is similar, but not as rich & the same as it once was. (smells sweeter now) Alot of oldies, but goodies are being tweaked, HATE THAT!

    YES!!! Spicegirl - this is one of my top three loves...just gorgeous, I think it is the saffron bite that keeps it from being overly sweet and cloying.
    Much more complex than one would expect.
    I just love this one too. It seems to heat up on my skin after a bit, too, very nice evolution.

    Yikes.
    I just read this.
    My intuitive response as I scrolled your wardrobe are of the following scents:

    Chinatown
    Deep Night by Ghost
    Timbuktu by L'artisan
    Datura Noir

    For some reason it feels like any of these might give you a bit of a jolt out of twilight zone mindset with their respective full bodied sweetness, heady incense, civetty spice or glorious tuberose.

    Hope that doesn't sound too weird.

    RT
    or, just go with the feeling, Rose Essentiale always makes me feel vulnerable and like I can have a good cry. THEN tread out into the Deep Night.

    Yes Fleur d'oranger is lovely Spicegirl...I wore it to a girls' party yesterday; and everybody wanted to know the name of that divine smell.

    Went to town in Michael with DH, found a beautiful dark brown suede coat from the sixthies in a brand new vintageshop. The sleeves are too short; but then I'll just have to find som long gloves.

    Took a bath and a nap in Organza; now I'm having sushi and some wine with Bois D'Ombrie thanks to Gerald. My better half liked the latter very much; and in fact I think it would be very nice on him; for me Bois D'ombrie is more masculine than feminine.

    Ah..one of those days...Riannon and Shycat; hmmm...a glass or two of red wine and a very very good film called "les invasions barbares" usually do the trick for me. Or the Goddfather triology..or " Once upon a time in America ".

    Have a nice evening all of you!

    I guess your heart needs a lot of TLC and the lift will follow on from that. Be good to yourself Shycat. Fragrance from your wardrobe, En Passant - uncluttered, unpretentious, simply beautiful. Take care.
