    Continued good vibes for all! Forced myself away from Hove Rue Royale today for a change and am wearing Bourbon French Eleftorea.

    For the morning testing
    SL Sa Majeste la Rose.
    So far not for me .
    In fact, probably the only
    SL I'm not swooning over.
    (That's a good thing though).

    Best of luck LIB!
    Glad to hear the good news Ineespenes !

    Started the day happily in Gres Cabaret, made the mistake of putting on some body lotion that turned out to be very strongly scented (but nice - Roger & Gallet Jen Marie Farina) and then spritzed on a test of Magie Noir in a shop because it was likened to Black Cashmere, which I really enjoy. They're really not similar. I think I have a headache coming on. Oh dear.

    Very funny! I'm lucky enough that I'm the only perfume freak in my house, although my wife is starting to get interested. Maybe I should hoard my samples.

    For me, it's the 1st day with Le Baiser Du Dragon

    Thank you dear ones for your good vibes! The interview was only the first step, so I've got to wait and hope. Good jobs are not abundant these days

    Ineespenes, good to hear your eye is healing

    After the interview, I rewarded myself with a trip to one of my favourite perfume stores and got samples of the three new Parfums d'Empire. I am wearing Osmanthus Interdit on one wrist and Equistrius on the other one. Let me say I am NOT impressed. Both are just "pretty" and the lasting power on me was almost nil. On the other hand, I tested the Fougère Bengale on a male colleague and, although I wouldn't wear it myself, it was amazing on him.

    Annick Goutal Songes for me today. Put it on at 7.30 this morning, and it's about the same time in the evening now, and it's still there. That's quality.

    Crossing my fingers for you LIB, hope it will go your way!

    Busy days for me lately, not so much time to write.

    At work today at the hospital I wore YR Comme une evidence elixir. It's chyprish in feel, I like it very much for work, combined with the bodylotion.

    I wore Ayala Moriel Sabotage to work today. I was very interested in this one but it didn't leave much of an impression. Now I'm trying her Cabaret. This one wasn't one of the ones that really caught my eye but so far I find it very interesting! Starts out very tangy, then it becomes very rosy, then it becomes tangy-rosy, and now it's softening into rosewater with a little zing to it. Fun!

    Don't quite know how to tell you this, but I dabbed on the tiniest bit of a long-forgotten monster of thirty some years ago and am LUVVIN'.......Georgio????!!!!! "floral bergamot, mandarin, jasmine, rose, carnation, orris, sandalwood, cedarwood, musk, moss and amber."

    It's really beautifully balanced and provocative and there are two things I think contributing to this serendipitous occasion - 1) Use ONE DAB and, 2) Be of a certain age.

    This is another frag (I think) that benefits from less estrogen (but no therapy) no meds, drier skin and a mellow metabolism. I can remember this as a harsh, jarring 'fume (prolly the bergamot - which my bod now loves) that I thought downright vulgar. Now, this little 1 ml. sample's gonna do me for a year - one dab at a time!!!

    Giorgio was one of my very first blind buys after joining BN, and I can honestly say that it is one of the worst frags I have ever smelled...I tested it on two separate occasions, and it smelled like a mix of turned hair spray and bug spray.
    I suspect my bottle must be a relict from the year Giorgio was launched - 1981, because I sincerely believe no perfume can smell that gross.
    I still have my bottle, and will give it a new chance, inspired by your posts, Taolady and Zibeline! :bounce:

    funny you mention Georgio ... I was flipping through some magazines during my Mom's eye surgery yesterday, and I saw big ads for Georgio in THREE different fashion mags! I was surprised, as I sort of thought Georgio was dc'd long ago!
