    Guerlain's latest work, L'Instant Magic for me today.

    It is a comfort, alluring white musk skin scent and it is absolutely adorable. I will nominate it the best new scent for 2007 for 8th basenotes awards poll.

    Waaah!! Thought I had conquered the cold with all that lemon and whisky

    It seems it was just biding its time and now I am joining Agent Provocateur into the realms of flu. May I escort you to the BN sick bay, my dear? It seems someone is making chicken soup.

    Heavy artillery is needed to smell anything at all. Five liberal sprays of Piver's
    Cuir de Russie

    It seems I am the only one who is not choking on what must be a sillage from hell

    Lievje, is your son feeling a bit better today? All the best, my dear.

    AP and all other cold/flu victims: cuddle up at home and let's sneeze and cough in comfort.

    And the rest of you: have a great and virus-free-Friday

    Today I will be testing Vol de Nuit Evasion, thanks to the lovely Dimples.
    That's going on one wrist and the original Vol on the other and we shall see how they compare. Could help myself last night when I got the package out of the mailbox and had to have a squirt - wow but is it fruity! And then it dried down to the most delicious vanilla. THIS should have been mentioned on Gourmand speak and sniff!
    Have a lovely Friday all.

    Wore Vanilla by the Body Shop today but then got bored and decided to test the Un Bois Vanille sample I scored yesters along with a sample of Ambre Sultan. Almost makes me wish it were winter... almost.

    I am wearing AG's Rose Absolue once again. I never thought I'd have a signature scent, but this is very nearly one. It is a pity the longevity is not very good. I carry a little rollerball bottle with me in my bag at all times so I can top up. I think I may be overdoing it a bit, I've seen one or two noses turned up (though not as bad as one disaster with Quelques Fleurs which turns out to be a much bigger perfume than I'd imagined). The lonegevity of SL's Majeste La Rose is superior to Rose Absolue, but I happen not to like that one very much.

    Good morning!

    I am feeding my Parfumerie Générale addiction with a generous dose of Brulure de Rose today.

    Riannon and Miss Agent Provocateur, sorry about your cold, but chicken soup ....I'd go for a hot milk-brandy round

    For all those asking about lievje's kid, she thinks the worst part is over, thank goodness! Fever was indeed very high at 41°C, so the doc gave him antibiotics and it seems he's feeling better. Mama Lievje asked me to update you, since she has lots to care for right now.

    kewart - I just tried Feminite Du Bois for the first time this week and it was LOVELY!

    I am still in last night's Hanukkah gift -

    Fracas Parfum

    Oooh, I wish I had more then a decant! It's warmer and smoother then the EDP.

    And after going to bed in it, I have a work appropriate amount of scent clinging to me.

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."

    TGIF, indeed!

    Work has been insanely busy for me these last few weeks, I've been feeling run down and now I am another who's fallen victim to a cold...

    Lievje, I'm glad your son seems to be on the mend!

    Everyone smells delicious, even if I can't really smell anything. Figure I will also smell great, in my newly gifted bottle of MPG Ambre Precieux. Notes include wood, amber, lavender, vanilla and nutmeg... and DH says he smells a "Play-doh" note! Wonder if I should spring the People of the Labyrinth juice on him.
    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. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    I feel like wearing the mysterious Musk Gazelle by Madini.
    This stuff is dark, literally and metaphorically.
    It is almost black in color. I have no idea as to the ingredients, but it is purportedly not from animal sources. To me, it is like masala incense--a blast of multiple ingredients, at once earthy, spicy, and flowery--pure head shop.
    I wrap myself in its warmth, but only with a tiny dab, as this one may surely wind up on the Do Not Wear To Work list. It is too sexy.

    Healing vibes going out to all the sickies (and hey! all y'all....Google "thymus thump" and get your immune systems in shape for the festivities coming up! )

    After rolling around in cherries and almonds and roses for a couple days (KM Loukhoum) need somethng a bit more astringent so am heading out in Pd'E Fougere Bengale..."opens with the freshness of lavender ...then the dry warm notes of hay take us to Bengal, to the Assam tea plantations. The mild tobacco, a glimpse of the British officers’ cigarettes, mingles with the animalic scents of the Indian brushlands. Finally Fougere Bengale welcomes us to an oriental palace where the enigmatic patchouli, vanilla and tonka bean evoke silk and cashmere." (from LuckyScent)

    Testing Liz Zorn's Pink Praline which from the description I wasn't sure I'd like (not usually too crazy about sweety gourmands) but WOW! This is delicious. Rich, nutty, decadent, with a touch of spice. If I ever wanted to eat my arms...
    This one's a contender folks.

    Get well all sickies. My cure: plenty of liquids and the occasional hot toddy, lots of rest, and a bit of exercise (like a brief walk.)

    Vol de Nuit evasion from Dimples! And yes, it does seem to more resemble Attrape Coeur than the original Vol de Nuit. Will be comparing in more than memory later. But it is unquestionably delicious.

    More warm wishes to our growing chicken soup cohort and best to Lievje. For those of you who don't speak centigrade (sadly includes me) that was a fever of 106 fahrenheit.
