    Goodmorning

    Oh alright, I will stay away from the Guerlains for a day. Shalimar Eau Légère felt too much like cheating on this Sniff and Speak Day

    Vaniglia Bourbon & Mandarino di Sicilia Antica Farmacista

    Gourmand eh? I smell absolutely edible.
    Coco, I think we are a match made in heaven

    Good morning everyone - no sun up yet, walking around with a flashlight - since workman snipped an electrical cord yesterday - thankfully not to the power for my puter or phone.

    I have a singularly un-gourmand wardrobe - but found a sample here that I think qualifies -
    MPG Bahiana

    Will wear it and think of Jorge Amado who captured Bahia Brazil with his pen - hopefully this will do it with scent.

    I still have a horrible cold but I've just roused myself to go shopping - chocolate shopping.
    So I'm wearing Angel in the extrait, which is far superior to the EDP. It's softer and more honeyed. I really love it.

    I luvluvluv this category. Just couldn't wait to see what all y'all were gonna do. Am scampering off to check out WordBird's Tesco's Finest Fig because the day is young and I may have to go figgy later on.

    I'm testing Prada today. I don't think it's a gourmand but it definitely smells yummy! I think a purchase will follow (or a subtle hint for a Christmas gift :-)

    For today's Gourmand Sniff & Speak, I am reveling in the lovely and supremely unexepected floral-and-woody gourmand Michael Storer Yvette.

    Notes: Muget, tarragon, vanilla, white chocolate, oakmoss, ambrette, precious woods.

    I definitely feel delicious in this.

    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for.

    My husband gave me an early Hanukkah/congrats on finishing Nanowrimo gift of a decant of Dyptique Do Son. So I am wearing it.

    Thank you to sofresh, who recommended it as a nice tuberose! It's LOVELY, I love love love the second stage where it smells like warmth. Sadly, my skin eats it up in under two hours. Not even the listed note of musk shows up after that.

    So I will switch to a gourmand after it fades. I am hoping for some samples from LuckyScent, so if they come I will try Untitled #5, otherwise it will be MaryKay Tribute - a perfume with a Cherry Vanilla Souffle accord.

    Today I am wearing Immortelle l'Amour, by Ayala Moriel , now my favorite gourmand scent, right up there with Aimez Moi by Caron. see review in Sniff and Speak thread
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. 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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    I am wearing Ava Luxe Love's True Bluish Light (it's a light musk, but has lots of vanilla, so it counts as a gourmand, right?).

    It was a gift from the very nice man who is helping me untangle and hang my Christmas lights around the outside of my house. He's doing chores for me and brought me a gift! I am spoiled.

    I totally forgot about SnS today or I would have worn my beloved Alien. Anyhoo, I decided to try out my sample of Ange ou Demon. I got the smell of Brut meets Omnia on my skin. It's funny cause I wore Omnia yesterday and I thought that it must be in my room from yesterday. I went to read the review and someone else got the Omnia presence as well. So, I'm finally getting to the point were I may be able to figure out these different notes soon.....WoooPeeeee!!!
