    Teint De Neige by Villoresi. It is rather too gourmand for my mood, and an hour after application it is smelling a bit like petrol as well. I may have to try to wash it off and apply something else, but I'll give it one more hour.

    How'd it go LIB???

    Glad to hear the better news Ines....we're rooting for you!!

    Reached into my goody bag of samples from The Wolf and came up with Sonia Rykiel Le Parfum.

    WOW!!!

    I see why Wolfie likes this house - this one has "top notes of hinoki wood, mimosa and passion fruit. The heart of Le Parfum is osmanthus from china, rose de mai, and iris from Tuscany. The base is tonka bean, ambered precious woods, and vanilla" and it is sumptuous and gorgeous. Ackshully maybe a bit too much for this-going-to-be-sunny day.....but maybe not!

    Very happy you're seeing some improvement in your eye INEE.

    Today another sampling from my pkg. from Dimps (thanks) HERMES AMBRE NARGUILE. A lovely spicy leather/tobacco scent. Although somewhat sweet and gourmandy (not normally what I go for), the spice and light amber make this a very wearable oriental with a gorgeous dry-down and finish. Soft, warm and comfortable. This would make a wonderful comfort scent on cold winter nites!

    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.

    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.

    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.
