    Headed off to dreaded dentist this morn - developing a toothache
    Is cold and needed a warm scent - decided to try Ambre Russe sent on by TaoLady :wave:
    Ohhh - this is rich!!! Hopefully it will comfort me during the visit - I have a terrible fear of needles.
    Then taking my samples box and getting in the car and driving to Philly till Saturday - will be infecting family and friends with my scent obsession.

    See y'all when I get back! Have a wonderfully scented day.

    I'm afraid I'm going to have to scrub this off. I quite liked the initial sniff, but then it turned linear on me. Every sniff I take goes straight to the back of my throat and sits there, and my stomach is getting queasy.

    How sad, don't stop wearing something you love; as punishment to them for being rude to you, wear extra. It is definitely not one of my favorites, but it is not a strong scent at all. Is your colleague a 'bloodhound' or some canine with super sensitive olfactory sense. I would always consider Eau des Merveilles low-key and subtle. Keep enjoying it

    I am currently wearing Parfum Zero Six Cent Trente - Yuzu Rouge. But it disappeared on impact. (serves me right -- it's snowing outside), So I'm now vacillating between Potl's A Maze or Ineke's After My Own Heart.
