    Amouage Silver Crystal Femme.

    Not the most appropriate fragrance for the morning, but it still lingers in my hair after last night's party.

    Ava Luxe Loukhoum today. Review on the Ava Luxe board later....

    The Ava Luxe experience is an AWESOME idea. Is anyone planing on doing this for other houses?

    Recital for me again today. I combined it with my body lotion after my shower this morning, so it's a complete all-over cloud of gorgeousness.

    L'Artisan Timbuktu. I missed the boat last time I tried it. I think I must have oversampled other perfumes that day, because I failed to be impressed by any of the notes. Today seems like a good day to try again, with a clean palate. This is a Luca Turin favorite, and I want to understand what he was talking about.

    Appropriately, I am wearing Sunday Girl today from the Ava Luxe line. Pomegranate and champagne; very simple and one of my faves.

    Wild Blackberry Musk by Ava Luxe in the a.m. (this is really good ladies - possibly the best blackberry scent I've encountered...better than Mure Et Musc Extreme and SMW for sure)

    Madeline by Ava Luxe in the p.m.

    oh dear, propriety not being one of my strong points, I lapsed from Ava Luxe week, and am wearing Datura Noir , quite by accident.

    But loving the creaminess of the tuberose. This is a highly wearable fragrance, easy to live in, soothing and lovely.

    I promise to sample some AL Madeline later on in the day.

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."

    Ava Luxe Loukhoum EDP and Body Milk for sitting on/with/watching TWMAG and I am good enough to eat!! This is my second favoritest loukhoum (the first - so far - from those I've tried - is Keiko Mecheri) and reminds me of a teacher I had in Bermuda who wore a cloud of white hair and rimless glasses and a parade of dresses that were all some version of pale blue flowers on a light beige background. ....it was a one room class room with windows always wide to the soft, lily scent laden Bermudian air and ...she always smelled of Turkish Delight)

    I may - when Loukhoum is fading - jazz it up with Cafe Noir.....

    A pretty fruity floral, Quel Amour by Annick Goutal. Do not believe it is FBW for me, but one needs to have a couple of "pink" fragrances.

    Wearing AL Bergamot right now, but it looks like I'll be ordering samples of Wild Blackberry Musk and Sunday Girl very soon (I hope, Serena where are you?)

    For the Ava Luxe gourmand today, I tried Love's True Bluish Light.. I smell like a dessert
    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.

    Deviating from the Ava Luxe experience for the day because of lunch at my Aunt and Uncle's. Wearing the highly appropriate Madame Rochas and feeling like a very well-heeled matron; it even inspired me to get a pashmina and a pair of kid gloves out to complete my suitably demure outfit.
