    I'm wearing Coco Mademoiselle that I was given recently as a gift ( a very unusual gift - for a perfumista I get remarkably few perfume gifts). Chanel is very peculiar to my nose. It's the scent equivalent of a uniform. It's sort of nice, safe, conformist, and as reassuring to the masses as an air hostess's corporate scarf tied jauntily to the side. It has a certain something, but it is just not me.

    Erm, my youngest son has become very ill now, it's morning but the fever is sky-high.

    I'm in Eau de Charlotte. We're doing Sinterklaas next Sunday, so I hope my son will be much better then, poor dear thing.

    Yes indeed, Buni, and having to get up this early doesn't help at all Thanks for showing me the error, have edited it.

    Prada Infusion d'Iris

    My husband gave me a decant for Chanukah. Because he's the best.

    I must say, that while I love it, it's not what I expected! When I sniff, I get a HUGE dose of soft cedar (Iso E Super?), and maybe some vanilla? I don't know why cedar always confuses and startles me. I guess if my husband ever wanted to find a good costume to scare me he could just dress as a cedar.

    But, when I'm not sniffing, just sitting around minding my own business, I get hit with a fantastic dollop of powdery soft buttery iris.

    Sniff my wrist and....cedar!

    I'm not sure what's causing this chimerical effect (could just be I'm crazy - crazy for perfume! ha!) but it's interesting.

    slept in Rasa last night, will spend the day in Une Folie de Rose. Got some very nice compliments the other day wearing this one which was nice.
    It;s very pretty, but also very snoogly. I truly enjoy chypres, I realize.

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."

    Yes, Jicky smells better on me than on a tester strip, that's for sure. The drydown is very nice.

    Lievjie hope your little boy's fever breaks soon. It's so scary when little children are sick.
    Best wishes to all today.

    later: nope, went with Ambre Sultan - more appropriate for the Klausmarkt tonight.

    I recieved a package of samples from Liz Zorn in the mail today, so now I'm wearing about six different scents. So far, so good. I think I may really like some of these.
