    Today is really smelling super !

    I'm soothing myself with Ava-Luxe # 23 parfum, over the body lotion.
    It's so softly floral, with a great deal of orris and incense- but subtle enough not to clear the room...

    Be well, folks !
    Hope all the ailing feel better soon-

    Meanwhile, tapped into a generous sample of YSL Nu EDP from the even more generous TWolf and I see what all the noise is about!! Woody, incense-y with an air of mystery and a slumberous smoky floral dry down. And it looks like you can get it for a SONG. All I have to do is build a new room.

    Am tearing out my hair today - yet another trip to Home Depot for plywood and shingles ...kitchen roof is being fixed - it leaks - have decided that people who buy 150 year old houses are crazy.

    So in honor of "this old house" dusted off an old neglected bottle of scent and am wearing Ciara

    Although I have to say, this one's the edt, so maybe the edp would give us a little more vetiver? Overall, very "pretty" though.

    How do you like Fifi Chacnil, sakecat? I am trying it this evening, too, and am pretty impressed, it's very soft and feminine but with a bit of snap to it that is kind of a turn on.
    Really liking this one. Reminds me a bit of Nanadebery BRONZE.
