    My evening in Histoire de Chypre was overshadowed by spilling most of a decant of Querelle in my purse. Not a bad scent for the car either.

    I've decided to continue last night's combination of Narcisco Rodriques For Her edp with Jo malone's Red Roses. This is a particularly nice combo suggested by Scentemental, whose wife wears it. I wouldn't wear either of these on their own, though I have combined Red Roses with other Jo Malones many times, but this combo is perfect. I'm using the NR from a store sample, I do not own a bottle of it in any form. I was given the NR body lotion for Christmas but I don't like the texture, I find it too sticky.

    I'm in another of Sestra's samples - Montale Black Aoud. I wasn't going to wear this today but I'd spritzed on a tiny bit last night (I've never tried a Montale before so I was curious) and I could still smell it this morning. It's quite medicinal at first but that doesn't last - to me this is primarily a heavy rose scent.

    After a short break, I've gone back to my mostly-staple for work day wear: Revlon's Fire & Ice. I love the scent, and it's nicely inoffensive without being 'clean' or 'fruity' like most of the fragrances we deem to be of the inoffensive type. It's a sweet oriental - I think. Stays close to the skin, but sticks around all day.

    It's also kind on the budget, so I don't feel guilty when I spray it on rather often!

    Good morning to all you deliciously fragrant folks. My vacation (winter break) ends today - off to the hallowed halls of academe - sigh - to face a new crop of students.

    Kyra, leave it to you to turn a perfume spill into a positive experience (and your car smells great!).

    Coco, feel better soon, I suggest you don't give up on acupuncture, although maybe try a different practitioner. I've found acupuncture helpful, too.

    Dimples, enjoy the Fleurs de Peau! I'm especially interested in what you think of it on drydown.

    Today, I'm following kbe's lead of yesterday in Bogart Pour Homme .

    Top notes: bergamot, lavender, and water lily
    Middle notes: "masculine floral notes" (whatever that is!)
    Base notes: patchouli, tonka bean, and vanilla

    Wonderful Wednesday to all!
    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

    Warming up today!! Feeling Spring-ish, brought out light 'n' lively


    Top: Peach, Freesia, Tarragon, Lemon
    Heart: Ylang-Ylang, Orris, Cyclamen, Muguet
    Base: Sandalwood, Vanilla, Cedar, Benzoin
    Mostly muguet on me and there is something in the y-y/freesia combo I guess that is vageuly lavenderish. The sandalwood is most predominant in the drydown and it last surprisingly well on me. Welcome home, dear Sculpture by Nikos!!
