    Hey! - I wish to wear a Lutens too, today, but not a tiny drop left of anything...

    So, Anne Pliska for today. If I shall be able to afford my Lutens cravings, I will have to use up my other stuff while saving money, anyway...

    Thanks! Unfortunately none of the rats in my avatar pics are mine. The two I have look far more scary!


    Had forgotten I had a sample of Louve (which I ordered a bottle of yesterday).
    Sprayed on some, only to find it smells exactly like the bitter almond essence I use in baking, only diluted!
    I just sent a mail to Luckyscent to try to change my order to a bottle of Un Bois Vanille instead!

    Oh Riannon, thank you so much. I can just imagine the fun to be had visiting you. Can I bring my decant collection for a playdate with yours?

    The best of news (well, apart from world peace and and end to hunger and disease) my buyer has signed the contracts to buy my house and we will be the proud owners of no roof but a shedload of cash on Friday. Yay!
    To celebrate, today I am wearing Jicky. And frantically packing boxes, but now it's a good kind of frantic. :-)

    Happy days, as my plasterers used to say.

    Me too! Me too!

    Afire was another NM I knew I HAD to have (I've grown up a LITTLE since the last go-around - I realize I CAN wait - I CAN save.........yeah, right!)...foody with flowers and woods. How can you go wrong.

    And a single brilliant red rose is blooming on the leafless stunted bush outside the kitchen window this ayem (roses don't do well here by the ocean)....what more could you ask??!!

    Seems like we've got a Lutens and Guerlain kind of day, here!

    Prior to logging on this morning, I had narrowed my SoTD down to two, Cuir Mauresque ( :wave: Riannon! ) and what I finally went with, the intriguing Guet-Apens, thanks to a sample from Dimples.

    Must be some weird vibe in the air.
    My Lutens for today is Sa Majestie la Rose.

    I've been working my way through the latest Luckyscent sample pack of late. Am pleased (or horrified, not sure which) that Lutens seem to work on me. From all of the mixed reviews, I was really expecting these scents to be funkier than they really are.

    Even the Miel de Bois......

    Good day one and all:
    those with 2,000 posts, those with 20, and those who lurk and only read.

    So many options!
    Neil Morris sprays from ComDiva!
    Truckload of samples from Musse!
    Goodies from my travels!

    Almost paralyzed with choices, I selected Covet for today.

    hehe, there really must be
    some sort of mystical Basnoter connection here
    what with all the Lutens wearers today.

    I reached for my Diam Blond, then Chergui,
    then Diam Blond again, then sniffed
    Fleurs d'Oranger then Datura Noir

    but, since I'm traveling to LA today
    I thought I better leave my Lutens
    safe at home, promptly sprayed on some
    Voile D'Ambre and threw my unopened mini
    of the same into my bag.
