    Ooh, you all smell 'dee-wish-ous!' as the Word Chick says (she's only little so she's allowed to be in cute overload mode at all times, I figure she's got to use it all up before she becomes a teen).

    I couldn't make up my mind today - Coup de Fouet? Vol de Nuit? But then I saw the perfect scent for the day: Malle's L'Eau d'Hiver. I feel snuggly now.

    No news from Lievje? I hope her little boy is on the mend.

    Several hours ago I started my day in SL's Cedre for the first time. I read the reviews that likened it to chewing gum and I can agree with that. Chewing gum is repugnant to me in any form, so I wanted it gone.

    In tandem with that is a boozy note reminiscent to my nose of the beer smell you get when you walk past a pub. Now, I love that walking-past-a-pub smell, but only if it is fleeting. I don't want to carry it around on my person.

    So, in the end Cedre had to go. I scrubbed it away and needed to replace it with something lively. I'm now wearing Gres Cabotine. It is alright, doesn't set my heart racing, but it will suffice while I spend the rest of the day indoors writing reports. I will change scent this evening though I'll still be here in the same place with my dreaded reports.

    I love Balmain and I think their scents are uniformly underappreciated. Everytime you turn around there are a few dozen more fragrance launchings and most people go with new and trendy.

    Looks like you are getting the freezing rain / snow / sleet / ice we were supposed to get in the Mid Atlantic last night. Stay safe and warm. Hopefully, you don't have to go anywhere.

    Dear chayaruchama, I love it, but it's quitte the opposite of the Ambre Fettiche I wore (and bought) yesterday. http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=203196

    While the Amber one is opulent,sweet and warm, the Mirre is almost meditative and simple. It's a clear mirre note, a bit spicey and a liiiiiiiitle bit of vanilla in the backround, but almost undetectable. Also I detect a little bit of Eau du Fiers smokeyness in the background, but I could be wrong, maybe it's just the mirre. It's very easy to wear and almost light. I guess they did this on purpose cause the 3 scents are also suitable to mix with eachother. In short, the Myrrhe Ardente seems to be the lightest. The Ambre the fullest and the Ensence somewhere in between, but astonishing too.

    Hugs,
    Eric

    Welcome to "Old-er is Better"!! :bounce: (For many many things!!!) I have found that "up here" lots of over-the-top (Not that Guerlain in general or Shalimar in particular necessarily qualify) or "big" scents that send the younger ones off screaming are tamed by our maturity!

    Chaya,

    Aki (meaning "autumn") is gentle and cuddly. Not particularly new in concept -- citrus, herbs, sweet dry, not foody vanilla, amber, patchouli, vetiver, soft woods -- and a muted, powdery drydown without the stale, musky aftertaste. There might be some "salty" notes in Aki, I believe. It does not produce much of a throw, stays close to the wearer's skin. Less sweet and lighter than Anne Pliska, does not have the gourmand aspect of IPdF Ambra de Nepal, however, sweeter than than Marc Jacobs Amber Splash, warmer and more intriguing than L'Artisan's Ambre Extreme, and lacks the chocolate and "darkness" of Hermes Ambre Narguile. Amber in Aki is well blended with other -- rooty, barky (is it a word? ), herbal and almost fruity -- elements, and it is pure loveliness.

    I am not familiar with the one you have mentioned, but I can tell you one thing: Aki is not a relative to Ambre Sultan despite amber, and is diametrically opposite of becker.eshaya Golden Amber despite its amber again.

    Seems like I have been on the amber kick this Fall-Winter. MPG Ambre Precieux and, believe it or not, Mauboussin are in the lead.

    Taoloady, I wonder if this explains why I can now appreciate Shalimar - from Mr Guerlain in the review section;

    'In recent years, the bergamot top note has been made more dominating than in earlier formulations, giving the fragrance a less balsamic, more 'perfumey' initial impression'
