    In a poetical mood today.....

    ...."So take heed, take heed of the western wind,
    Take heed of the stormy weather.
    And yes, there's something you can send back to me,
    Spanish boots of Spanish leather"......(Bob Dylan)

    And so I am longing for the smooth leather scent of Cuir Mauresque.

    So comforting now autumn is here to stay.

    Enjoy your Sunday!

    (Pawing frantically through samples for BB....would someone tell me why it's Black Monday??)

    Matthew Williamson from The Mouse. A creamy middle-weight floral with lots of bounce...got a quick whiff of iris and (!) blackberry - some freesia and roses with underpinnings of tonka. I likeee!

    Perfect for Family Brunch at a fancy hotel on the beach with TWMAG - now officially ONE year old.(Pictures? Did someone say they wanted to see pictures??? )

    My nose is still dripping a bit late at night, but rest and sleep seem to be helping some and I get up with the perfect sense of smell. Wearing the powerhouse of Lancome Magie Noire, let's see if it going to be bright and vibrant by the end of the day! On the average I walk about 13 miles per day at work (I took a pedometer with me a few times!), and half of them doing so with weights!

    Hi Twolf, get well soon!

    The temperature was 29 degrees here and I was wearing Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Tutti Kiwi, it lasted for a good 5 hours.

    I was reading about Rochas Femme on the other perfume blogs, they all said this is a very challenging scent. Has anyone owned or still wears it? Care to share some thoughts on this? (edit: I found the thread on the opinions, http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=187991, thanks Quarry for putting the link on the review section)

    Guerlinade - always reminds me of our wedding.

    I am getting a cold. My nose has been getting gradually runnier all day, and I feel *horrible* (commiserations to Twolf). I really hope my sense of smell doesn't end up affected by it!

    After shower, I changed to mysterious sample B which I now know is Sonia Rykiel Woman (Not for Men). I stil think it's a Cuir Beluga for those on a small budget...and I still want a full bottle!

    Parfums de Rosine Rose d'Homme for me on this glorious early fall day.

    I'm especially picky (mercurial?) about rose scents, but this one... Wow! Roses along with bergamot, lavender stems, suede, vetiver and patchouli. Going on my "must get" list...

    after all day in this, I am finding it extremely soft and comforting, like a cashmere shawl of sweetness, but not too sweet.

    a big thank you to the basenoter who sent me this sample - embarrassed to say, I have lost track...but thank you very much!
