    I used my bell bottle of Vetiver Oriental and didn't succeed in applying it gently. First, I was a piece of vetiver, but soon it dried down to a soft beautiful scent.

    Have a nice Thursday!

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."

    Christian Dior Diorella, in the best traditions of what the House used to be. So many disappointments in my sniffings as of late, I needed this consolation prize of a nice old scent.

    Ever impatient Gemini jumping the gun on Neil Morris Day by indulging in his gorgeous Quest - so outdororsy and fresh. The city is mowing all along the meridians and with the car windows down this is the impression of Quest - together with some rumbly wood notes and a whiff of some wild flowers and patchouli. Enchanting!!

    As I recall, this one is a bit evanescent so I'm taking the sample with me to Tai Chi.

    Still packing up the house and moving our worldly goods out to a storage unit.
    Wearing Acier Aluminium to cheer me up as we await a call from the solicitor to find out if, after all this, our house sale has fallen through.

    Nasty buyer upped and asked for a £2k reduction in the price on the day we're supposed to exchange contracts. Boo! Jolly bad form. We poke our tongues out at him, say 'garrrrh!' and wish a plague of haemorroids on his clan. Karma's going to have a field day on him.

    But we aren't stressing. Too busy packing to be stressed about anything else! ;-)

    Madini Ambargris. Unusual, addictive, powerful, lasts for hours.
    One tiny drop, and I am transported to an Arabian bazaar full of spices, incense, and dried fruits. And yet, it does not bring to mind edible things, but is sexual instead.
    Supposed to contain beach-harvested ambergris.
    Going to order some more samples and revive my Madini thread.

    I wore AL Red Tara to work where a perfume hatin' friend complimented it. Then I tested AL Cafe Noir this evening and it worked a lot better than it did last weekend. DH2B is becoming more sophisticated in his commentary: "oooh, this one's very complex!" Then I had a sudden craving for SL Sa Majeste la Rose after my bath.
