    It is NOT a lovely spring day here ... it is cold & wet & dark! Brrrrrr!!
    Quick, turn the heater up, put on a cuddly warm sweater, make a cup of afternoon tea ... & spritz on some

    Ahhhh... now sit back & relax as it pelts down with rain outside!!

    I am still wearing the Kenzo Flower that I wore to bed ( 4 short hours ago) but I had to get up early because it it my youngest daughters Birthday! I always wake my children up on their Birthdays with a Birthday Cake ( made my me very late last night) lit with candles and singing Happy Birthday. They still love it even though they are teenagers.

    Stop and Smell the Roses Week (Homme Edition) commences with this fine fragrance. All this week, I'll be wearing rose scents that were recommended and/or sent to me from a couple of generous Basenoters. Will post comments later.

    Side note: Stop and Smell the Roses week (Femme Edition) will commence after purplebird7 joins us again. She provided several recommendations from Les Parfums des Rosine and Montale and I want to save that week for her return.

    Of COURSE they do! (When he was 18, I told my son that I guessed he was old enough for us to forgo the Easter baskets this year. His face crumpled. No EASTER baskets???" he wailed.) This is so cool! Whadda Mom!

    To keep Sloan_8013 happy I am trying a sample of Tiempe Passate. Very evocative of the dunes of Montauk. From their website: Cedarwood, amber, bergamot, montauk rose (named for its "saltiness") and clementine (for sparkle.) I don't have much luck with Antonia's Flowers in terms of longevity - we'll see how she survives what promises to be a hot day!!

    The risks of just diving into the sample bag:

    Pulled out Heeley Cedre Blanc - which has a very strong cumin note. Not having enough time to scrub - then pulled out Montale Sweet Oriental Dream to "lighten it up".

    I now smell like sex with toys, vanilla massage oil and latex. Should be an interesting workday.

    Hello, all my lovlies. I'd most like to join Sudsy, listening to the pelting rain. I can't seem to get enough stormy weather. Unseasonably warm in the northern U.S. today.

    Felt like Demeter Wet Garden for a second day. That's really weird. I almost never reach for this scent.

    wearing Eau de Camille, such a girly fresh innocent fragrance, and I am finding it very refreshing, but must confess that Tabac Blond and En Avion are on my mind.
    "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."

    Started the day with Tabu body souffle and the edc...I don't like it on is own, it's too much clove or something.
    Oversprayed with Ciara after a while, so now I think I smell ok....?

I added a little Aveda Patchouli and some Baby Magic Lotion to the mix, but I didn't tell her that lol! I just told her the name of the perfume just as she had asked. I can't tell everybody my secrets.
