I'm testing Eau de Parfum by Juozas Statkevicius (or Josef Stakus) today.
notes include: Jasmine, patchouli, coriander, incense, amber, cashmere wood, vanilla, benzoin, musk.
oh lordy! this is amazing!
I've trademarked the color bleu
Cacheral's LOU LOU mmm, the sweet smell of Barbie & jelly beans!
Hope everyone had a good weekend!
Happy belated to KYRA.
Congrats on your 1 yr. anniversary JILLSY. Mines coming up here in a couple of weeks as well. Woo hoo!
Wearing VOL d NUIT EVASION (thanks DIMPS!) on the right, and GUET APENS on the left for comparison. I do smell slight similarities, but have only had them on for about 10 mins., so will see... I'll try it with ATTRAPE COEUR tonite!
GET WELL soon all you lovely fluies!

I'm wearing Chene this morning.
Good Morning everybody,
I planned on resting up this weekend but got dragged into DH's home improvement schemes instead. I ache all over. My original scent plan called for something bright and energizing to perk up the loathed Monday at work, but I can't even pretend. I need comfort and calm (and ibuprofen), so I am going for Black Cashmere, both the frag and the sweater (and the ibuprofen).
Jillsy, I hope you had a fantastic time. I'd wave, but the med hasn't kicked in yet.
Started off the work week in Narciso Rodriguez for Her.
Sniff and let sniff.
Test driving Messe de Minnuit. Wanted to wear Love Comes from Within but couldn't find my decant.
WISHLIST: Tokyo Milk Honey & the Moon, Brooklyn Bunny Lettuce

Glad everyone is safe (scary about the car sliding downhill).
Hope all are recuperating (maybe lievje's sleeping in?),
and that Monday doldrums will be the worst to befall any of us.
Happy Kyra's enjoyed another trip around the sun
and am ecstatic for Jillsy's anniversary!
I'm do my best to be useful for the blind sniffing challenge.
Scent A on right wrist, Scent B on left wrist--don't know what I'm wearing

Off to bed in a generous sample from KBE ....this interesting frag is slow to develop - it's iris and lavender with a hint of leather that's quite prominent in the dry down. I might need more of this.......

I'm testing Parfum D'Empire - Equistrius tonight
This showcases the chilly side of iris ... it seems light and airy, not as powdery as some iris scents ... it seems to really be taking me on a ride, the notes are weaving and changing all the time ...
Notes: orris, violet, rice powder, chocolate, ambrette, sandalwood, vetiver, and grey amber
I've trademarked the color bleu
gosh, been so very busy.
Started off this morning in Caron's En Avion. parfum form. Lovely, lovely leather. I can still smell it.
I'm simplifying my life. For Sale Thread (some niche, some designer):
Nahema EDP as I was tracking a bottle on ebay, but decided not to up my bid.
It's a beautiful 'fume but I am fine with just a decant to turn to when I feel in need of roses.
Been watching my DVD of The Libertine with Johnny Depp and crying my eyes out. So beautiful, so sad. Such a deep draught of life drunk. I like Rochester; I have known a man with that charisma and heartbeaking, life-enhancing hedonistic streak. And I love the music at the end - the contralto singing. I don't know what it is, but it's sad and lovely at the same time.

Went with Bandit today. My first time. Is this really so controversial? To my it smelled like a well-behaved green chypre, with a good bit of tame, white musk. Nice, I could see making it my office scent. Am I nuts? Is my nose drunk?
Now I am sampling Ginestet Botrytis which is scrumptious but short-lived (yet oh-so-worth-it) and Frapin 1270, also very good.
Another belief of mine; that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.
SotE - Also Ginestet Botrytis. Tried this out on the Bowling Boys last night.
It seems to last longer on me than on you Pellen. I kept getting random whiffs of this lovely sugared scent, kept looking around and realized it was me. I LOVED that!
Bowling Boys reaction - well, the usual stuff. Much harassment and general merrymaking all around. All unusual behavior seemed to be fueled by the pitchers of beer. No comment on the scent.
