    My poor Coco Maybe you better stay away from perfume on your skin right now. And....no alcohol inside you as well. Yuck, I am beginning to feel a 'solidarity itch'

    Carnal Flower today.

    I sure does make you feel very 'carnal'

    Sorry about your skin, Coco! It's always worse in the autumn.
    I'm wearing my new aquisition, A di Parma's Mandorlo di Sicilia today. I read in a review somewhere that this smells like a root beer float and it does, although I get more of a sarsparilla vibe. Anyway, it's fun and bubbly.

    Yay! I have a job interview today myself. Good luck!!!!!!

    Wearing Montale Golden Aoud today. By the time I have the interview at 2pm (DC time), it should have settled in a bit.

    Speaking of Montale Golden Aoud - I have found very little information online or elsewhere. Got it from the Perfume Court as a sample. My uneducated nose picks up Oud, a woody rose and a hint of saffron at the top. 1 hour into the wearing, it is a strong woody rose with some oud running through it.

    Anyone have any information on this perfume?

    Oh - Coco - get well soon.

    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    though I fear I may be boring you, it's Chanel no 5 for me again. the parfum version.
    my experience with this is making me want to replace all my edt and edp frags with the pure parfum version of each of them. I keep thinking, "what am I missing?"

    I just have not been "feeling" my perfumes lately. None of them.

    Isn't it? The old Lanvins have such an almost mystical beauty. Maybe it's my age, but some of my vintage scents make me feel more "me" and give me such a sense of calm.

    Now that Fall is finally here, giving a full wearing to Messe de Minuit, from a sample a little birdie gave me. THANKS PB. I love this one, FBW.

    I love the name, a homage to a mysterious woman. I will be wearing several Lily-Oh's scents in the next days, since I received her sample package this morning.

    LIB - Always good to stick with the stuff that gives you luck and comfort during interviews.
    I will DEFINITELY be rooting for you Friday. Let us know how it goes on your end....

    According to the guy who brought me in - he says it went really well and acted super-excited (I hope he gets a large bonus if I wind up working there).

    The job is in another part of the same university so even if I don't get it - it's a win / win situation for all parties and we can continue to help each other out.

    In the meantime - back in the weeds with my current job and its broken systems.....

    BTW - the Montale Golden Aoud mellowed out nicely. 9 hours later and I can still smell it - but only if I really pay attention.

    Still working on the Ava Luxes today. I tried Moss yet again because I so want to like it, but it actually makes me feel nauseous. Then I put on some Versace Crystal Noir. I remembered liking it around Christmas when I got the sample, but today it was "meh". Then I gave AL Carnation a shot. It's nice but it reminds me too much of Caron's Poivre which I find much, much better. Now it's bedtime so of course I'm wearing AL Milk. This is a total winner for me. I crave it all day long. I'm also testing AL's Sunday Girl on my left ankle and Camisole on my right. Both winners as well, I believe.

    Sorry Moss doesn't work for you, I am wild about Moss! And I look forward to the day that a bottle shows up on Etsy...lol.The only similarity between it and Mitsouko is that they are chypres, Mitsouko is much more floral while Moss is greener has an animalic twist. I'm a fan of both, but I get much more positive attention when I'm wearing Moss. It's a great layering scent as well.

    Now you've sparked my curiosity about Milk.

    I'll be sleeping with my wild green Moss tonight...
