    Infiniment Chopard today.

    My bottle is almost empty, I have to decide quite soon if I will get Infiniment in a secound bottle. I am very fond of it!

    Enlèvement au Sérail by Parfums MDCI. This is a classic fragrance, soft, beautiful, and very elegant. I feel equiped for the day ahead with this around me.

    Its notes are perfectly blended: bergamot, mandarin, ylang-ylang, jasmine sambac, tuberose, rose, wallflower, patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla and vetiver.

    Voile d'ambre for a day at the hospital, low sillage and not intruding, fits the bill nicely.

    Later it will be Bulgari Black i think, the voile d'Ambre doesn't stay around for lang.

    I am giving Melograno another outing today.
    Pomegranates just seem to suit this time of year,
    and I have used them in several recipes over the festive period.
    We are expecting our first snowfall today.

    Scent by Alexis Duchess -- the third test. What do duchesses do in the morning? This one drinks hot cocoa, eats a chocolate cake and when she runs out of it she asks for a huge serving of ice-cream "Death by Chocolate". Crowds of servants are ready to serve her, some are holding big bouquets of white lilies and gardenias, but the only thing she is interested in during the day is her manicurist. At the end of the day she puts on a powdered wig and goes to the ball. Imagine her confusion when instead of chamber musicians she is greeted by a metal rock group.

    Probably an interesting scent, but not for me!

    Inspired by the toffee notes in Plus Que Jamais, I am going to wear Un Bois Vanille today, from an Aedes sample. It is sooooooooo cold out there today.....brrrrrr.....stay warm everybody.
    "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

    Started out in Chopard Madness Natural Black , which is nice but not quite doing it for me in today's bitter cold. Will change into L'Artisan Tea for Two.

    Stay warm!

    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

    Started out as a scent-twin to Brotha G in Jo Malone Amber and Lavender (first test) but don't find it's doing it for me and anyway it's faded away now.

    Will be restocking the pantry this afternoon, so need something to sustain myself and the 3-year old Chick through the supermarket experience which she finds so trying... (she's in Clarins Eau Resourcante to keep her calm)(she's sooooo posh!).
    Mentally tossing a coin between Gres Cabaret and Madame Rochas... oh but maybe Voile D'Ambre... Yes! Voile D'Ambre it is.

    You know, sometimes I think I make this harder work than I really need to.
    :-)

    later:
    Yep, VDA was perfect. I got the perfume for Xmas from my hubby and it's fantastically long-lasting.

    Grrrrrrrr.... got up at 4 AM to find out the hot water pipes had frozen...have been standing in the pantry with a hair dryer and heating pads since then - finally got them thawed out - thankfully they didn't burst.

    It's zero degrees Farenheit here this morning (I think that is -17 Celsius). Now I can finally bathe and am going to bask in Guerlain today in honor of Rtmara (Renee's) new found addiction

    Coming out of my warm shower,
    I'm totally dreading going
    out into the -13°C/8°F
    (sounds like a really cruel joke, doesn't it?).
    I've decided on Jalaine Patchouli for today.
