    Oh yes, TGIF!
    Raining cats and dogs over here and we're expecting an icy cold front over the weekend.

    I'm wearing EldO Rossy de Palma Eau de Protection for the day.

    Wishing you a wonderful day, Basenotes friends!

    Wow Sestra I can almost smell you from here - gorgeous!
    Freezing cold here in Shropshire today and, to make it worse, our central
    heating has broken down and my Hubbie is on the road to Coventry and
    can't help!! After putting on about four layers of jumpers I reached for
    HOT COUTURE (Givenchy).

    Oh yes, I smell divine. I'm sure you do too, though the Hot Couture is unknown to me. I'll search it and read up.

    I think you are probably marginally colder than me just now. I'm sitting under an vent that blows cold air down my back. This is doing nothing for my sillage.

    Good luck with the heating. I hope it won't cost too much to mend - imagine wasting money on radiators that could be spent on perfume.

    carrying on in Immortelle l"Amour again today. This one got the thumbs up from my ten year old "Nose" - the one who likes no.5 , L'Heure Blue and Allegoria Anisa Bella. Immortelle is in good company.

    on a work marathon even though its a holiday...yesterday, today and through the weekend...

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."

    My feeling is one of Insolence - so I'm off to Black Friday (for our friends across the pond - this refers to the day after Thanksgiving when most retailers pull out the big guns for Christmas shopping sales and count on the day to put them "in the black")....and the throngs who will be storming the doors for - flowers???!!!

    (This pretty Guerlain behaves herself nicely on me....not-too-sweet berries and violets and iris. Was late catching it - Hilary SWANK???!!!)

    Testing Sarrasins for the first time today, thanks to the lovely LiB!

    Like with most Lutens I have tested, this one opens very strong, almost aggressive (if one can use that word in this context...), makes me want to protect my nose from it, but soon, very soon..........aahhhh...... mmmmmm.......*swoon*.............

    Wordbird, rtamara, I'm with you!
    Worked a long, concentrated Thanksgiving day producing a magazine I hope to send out for proofing tonight or tomorrow, and then I'm receiving another magazine to sew together asap! After that I've got a buyers guide to polish off, and then invoicing ... and then ... and then, a break for a few days.

    I want to start reviewing my samples from Quarry.
    They sit there, calling my name, asking to reserve all my arm space.
    If I don't have time to start testing them, I will probably re-wear Samsara today.
    I have the parfum, which I bought untested because I usually like parfums better than EDPs (and I liked the bottle.) However, this is the exception. I like Samsara EDP better. The parfum is non-diffusive, dense and sweet, and it has a strong dominant note which my husband says smells like coconut. I don't think he is right, but if it weren't for the jasmine, I might agree. It makes one wonder if the formulations changed for each concentration. I know Chanel does that, but I didn't suspect it of Guerlain.

    Going into the evening in a full wearing of Michael Storer Winter Star, his latest women's "scent-in-production." Am finding it purchase-worthy for the top and drydown notes alone, which include a *completely* glorious UNsweetened caramel note. Mmmmmmmmmmmm!
