    Snow? Still fairly warm in NJ but at least we had some rain. Now DH, a lawn fetishist, will finally settle down and stop fretting

    Joining everyone in wishing LIB a great job interview.

    I myself have a day conference so have to get up early, which is rare for me. So after scrubbing off some scent I tried at Walgreens, I am sleeping in Holman and Stephanie's Fascination, a very rich and lovely floral.

    Good luck LIB - you'll have to post later to tell us how it went and, of course, what your SOTD was.
    This morning I am testing Creed's Orange Spice and finding it very male, very much like Kouros and very enduring. But I have lots of other lovely new things to try so I might have to scrub...

    Later:
    Scrubbed and now testing Lutens' Daim Blonde. At first it was so sweet! Then apricots. But now settling down into the suede and I'm liking this very much. Suspect I will be embarassed to find myself sniffing my arms in the supermarket again. (You notice that 'again'. But I'm middle aged and unrepentant. There's not enough eccentricity in the world anyway.)

    Yesterday's leather SoTDs persuaded me to try my sample vial of Parfumerie Generale's Cuir d'Iris, courtesy of a very generous BNer (although I can't seem to find "Cuir d'Iris" listed anywhere, so it just might be Cuir Venenum), with a few drops of BPAL's Love and Pain (notes: Lavender, Balkan tobacco, black musk, dark vanilla, and golden copaifera) on the back of one hand.

    Coolish for the first time - good excuse to haul out naughty, raunchy Kingdom and sniff myself all over...all over!!! (Supermarkets - art exhibits - post office, etc.)

    Welcome home Twolf. Hope you had a great trip.
    Good luck Lady in Black. Remember, if they don't choose you, they didn't deserve you anyway.
    Believe it or not, I'm wearing the last of an old bottle of Estee Lauder Knowing. The weather turned cool, and I have always adored this perfume's drydown.
    For those of you who shudder at the thought, I understand. It is tricky getting to the soft, powdery part, but oh, so worth it.
    Sometimes the opening comes on so strong that I shower to hasten the process. But that rose, tuberose, orange, patchouli and amber ending is one of the most daring drydowns that department stores have ever offered.

    Thank you, sakecat22! Belated well-wishes on your interview also -- you said it would be a win-win situation, but I hope you get the win you're looking for.

    After asking "what to wear" to a job interview, I've been digging through old threads about what (not) to wear to the office/library. (This wasn't an issue before, because I had only one perfume!) It's been very helpful.

    Strong? Blimey, that's not how I remember Anais Anais. I wore it for years back in the early 80s. I think of it as light and almost powdery. Strange how we react to fragrances isn't it? I haven't sniffed AA for ages though, so maybe my memory is playing tricks with me...
