Angel in body lotion + extrait.
Today I am glad to report that my initial impression of Guerlain Champs Elysees was oh so wrong! I wore it over a generic lemony body butter. While it didn't last on my wrists or any piece of exposed skin, it was constantly wafting from underneath my shirt! Compared to my super sweet fragrances that I usually wear I just felt mature and sophisticated today, while still feeling fresh and uplifted by this beautiful scent!

"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."

What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

I'm on a vanilla tip at the moment, so I'm going for Shalimar today.
I'm not too fond of the topnotes but it's worth it for the drydown.
And it's Mothers and Toddlers today, so if I get so bored I want to gnaw my own limbs off they'll smell edible.

Wow, everyone smells great today!
For me on this sunny, cold Tuesday The Different Company Un Parfum des Sens et Bois. Lovely, but I'm actually finding it a bit too light for this weather. Perhaps I just need to bathe in it...
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 the morning in Sage Machado Turquoise. Oddly, I was in the mood for a light summery aquatic floral this cold and drizzly day.

Arpege - Lanvin.
I have a like-dislike relationship with this one.
One moment I decide I like it because it is somewhere in the No 5 family (though not even remotely as smooth, high-end and refined) and next I catch a sniff of it on clothes I wore earlier and decide I hate it.
On clothes, it stays sharp, harsh, sour and hysterical.
I can't even decide if I like this fragrance or not.
