Madame X for me too.
Aftelier Tango again on top of musse's Gres Cabaret. We miss you dear musse.
Every time our daughter leaves the nest, kewart, it gets easier, but you should see how shredded my apron strings are from trying to keep her close.
Wearing Angelique Noire. Last night's Mira Bai is mildly present and resisting replacement.
Daughter No. 2 and I are heading out shortly to catch a chick flick with my BFF and her daughter No. 2 ( our No. 1 daughters are also BFF's ) In honor of the girly occasion I will wear my new Fifi Chachnil
Today Madame X for me. It is my first time, and it is wonderful!
My favorite amber, hands down, is Ambre Russe.
It is hard when children leave, but then it is surprisingly good. The worry never ceases, though.
I hoard that like it was gold, I love it so...
[Doesn't stop me from sending samps out, though !]
I have just returned home from spending some days in the mountains, with no access to the internet.
Hope you all have had a nice and peaceful Christmas!!
I am wearing Dreaming by Tommy Hilfiger today. A yummy peach and strawberry scent, bet this will be a BIG
hit among the younger of us!!
Remember - I told you first!
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Yay, Musse !
I WANT THAT RODENT BABY !!!
[Hope your holiday was lovely !]

Peggy: "Right now, we have to get to the mental institution. Something terrible has happened."
Peggy: "Brother Boy has tried to kill himself. He jumped out of his bedroom window."
Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."
Fr. Sordid Lives: The Series
"Live, live, live! Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death."
Feeling much better today, rested up and delighted to have the day off at last. I am geting too old to do 16 hour days at the hospital.
Today I am giving MS Il Giardino a try. My daughter referred to it as an Eau de Guerlain type but without the citrus overload.
Might do some sniffing locally, too. But might just relax and read.
I was surprised to see SJP Covet and Hermes Kelly Caleche already discounted online. Thought I'd mention it to those who like those scents but are balking at paying full price. Between the free shipping, the coupon and the already discounted price you can do very well. Perhaps it's the ever increasing number of launches that gets so many scents to the web so fast? I wonder how many new scents will last this onslaught of mass production?
As for my favorite Ambers? Amber Sultan, of course. My first and favorite SL.
Today my envelope of decants came and I dabbed on a wee bit of CBIHP Musk Reinvention.
It smelled so moderate in the vial, so I put on a good dab.
But, WOW! I feel like I've been up to no good, smelling like this. I should have dabbed on a wee bit less.
I think I like it.
Welcome back home, musse! Hope your vacation was lovely.
P-bird, my favourite amber must be Ambre Narguilé, but I'm not so sure in that field....so many ambers I love: Esteban Ambre, il Profumo Ambre d'Or, YR Voile d'Ambre, Profumum Fiore d'Ambra.
..and am developing a lemming for AG Ambre Fétiche :bounce:
My SotE is PG Haramens...I have to say it performs waaay better in warm weather.
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
For ambergris, nothing satisfies me like the swoon-inducing, intoxicating opium/ambergris blend of Profumum Fiori d'Ambra--foreplay on rose red silk sheets. Need a decant of this, I'm almost out.
First test of my sample of Muscs Koublaï Khan. To my surprise, this is a pretty and inoffensive musk, almost shy. I love it, but if I was trying to seduce, I would wear Chanel Cuir de Russie; much of the same character, but with claws and teeth.
Behemoth cut a slice of pineapple, salted it, peppered it, ate it, and then tossed off a second glass of alcohol so dashingly that everyone applauded.
Westside by Bond No. 9
I wore Rasa today.
SotD (for traveling home) Montana Parfum d'Homme
SotE (reward for getting home) Aramis Havana
Things are things because of Mind--Zen Buddhist saying
Lord, between you and KBE in Havana, I'm just about in heaven.
As for ambers, my very favorite is also Profumum's Fiori d'Ambra -- though I think the foreplay's on *gold* silk sheets with opium-laced incense burning across the room and a Roman glass jar full of honey by the bed...
(I got a holiday gift cert to LuckyScent, too... so might actually be able to buy this one sometime soon!).
My other amber favorites are Ava Luxe Sweet Amber Wood and Amber Essence, MPG's Ambre Precieux and Montale's Blue Amber (also on my wish list).
Hoping to test L'Artisan's Ambre Extreme and Neil Morris Fragrances Burnt Amber #5 in 2008 (if not before)!
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

The mind is like a drunken monkey, it constantly jumps here and there.

Slept in Coromandel, finally got today's first scent on at the edge of evening- Pomegranite Noir
Sending BEMs scuttling back to Betelgeuse with my fierce fumage!
Hugs to you Kewart. My firstborn son went away to university this past september and it was hard... but he's back for the holidays! yay!
I'm with LIB, with Ambre Narguile as my fave amber. Thanks for the intro to this one tdi! *waves*... Ambre Sultan comes a close second.
Today, I dabbed on Chanel no5, a sample from the lovely enabler, rtamara. Thank you Renee. I really like this formula.... it's much better than the EDT and the EDP.

"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 can see the gold sheets working very well in context with amber. My preference is for dark shades of red because the exotic, dark haired ladies to whom I am drawn look unbelievably sexy and beautiful in rich, dark red silk sheets and lingerie. l like the opium-laced incense, nice addition. I would also add a little cinnamon to the honey to add a warming touch. Delicious.
wearing bois farine tonight
