    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!

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."

    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.

    Really nice so far! I get a familiar Tauer opening, spicy and full with a hint of flowers (the rose, I presume). Then lots of myrrh in the drydown that make me think of Serge's La Myrrhe. The incense note isn't extremely prominent on me, but it does have a smoky quality. Quite a warm, complex and comfortable scent

    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...

    Spent the night in the original Mitsouko ( Wolfie!!) and dreamt dreamy dreams. If only you children knew what the real thing is like.....)

    Tavorna - so glad you're on the CE bandwagon!!!

    Guus - you've created another "gotta try" here!!

    As for me, I'm test driving:

    That's Bois 1920 Agrumi Amari di Sicilia....
    ...a gorgeous many layered citrus (there's burst-skin oranges, and a hint of bitter peel, and full bodied mandarin juice etc) and some light berries...gotta get me some for summer) from a sample sent by the divine Sloan_8013.

    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.
