    My 8 year old sister chose my SotD so I was wearing Fantasy.

    Wearing Moschino Couture as SotA but it's disappearing fairly rapidly coz I've been cooking this arvo and smell like onions and orange and fried chicken.

    Good morning dears! :wave:

    Today I'm in

    VIP Room

    sprayed generously - I've nursed a sample for almost 2 years and I am overjoyed because a generous Basenotes sister-in-scent upgraded me to a decant.

    This is Bulgari Black's young cousin, with a touch more fruity frills and curlicues, and that's what I like in it. The notes are tiaré flower, bergamot, tangerine, pineapple, sandalwood, vétiver, birch, iris root, leather, styrax, amber, vanilla, and musk.

    I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker

    Borsari Macchia Mediterranea before the shower. Probably nothing after that for a day of sniffing.

    Bathed myself in Venus Sands last night -gosh, that stuff is powerful- !
    Skanky, feminine,fiercely animalic + indolic. VERY GOOOD !
    [Don't think my doc will like it, though- so lather, rinse, and CHANGE, lol !]

    Perhaps, a nice layering of SMN Fieno essence w/ Ginestra would be less provocative and more soothing.....for everyone else.

    Done, and done.

    Hope Lievje's feeling better.
    Hope you all are doing well, dear ones !

    Hi all!

    Chaya, it's good to have you back, how was NY?
    I'm okay, thanks, although my wrist still hurts. It's going to take some time.

    I'm in Kiehl's Original Musk today.

    I had to dig through my samples before finally finding Bandit

    It goes splendid with today's avatar. So far, it is neither like or dislike.

    SotD - Guerlain Insolence for Conference Day 2.

    Don't know why I've been feeling so Guerlainish recently - and since this is the only one I packed, I think my small little sample spray will not make it home with me.

    Hopefully, the Ormonde Jayne I packed will get some play tomorrow.....

    I'm wearing Chene today.

    I will be dashing off to my parents soon.. Mom broke her and I am going to help out. She made it through surgery but there is a long road ahead to get her back home with Dad.

    I am new to this whole fragrance thing but It seems to have gotten me already. I grapped a few decants and a handful samples to throw in my suitcase as well as my brand new copy of Perfumes the Guide.

    It goes splendid with today's avatar and I want to experience why Luca Turin dislikes it.

    So far, it is neither like or dislike. I suppose I am not a Caron Woman, with the exception of Caron Pour Un Homme. Would that make me a Caron Man?
    Does Caron have a Bandit??

    Oooohhhh - I see!! http://community.basenotes.net/showt...42#post1204442

    I'm totally with our own Ayala who has this to say: ".... the dessert (Banana Sheera)....even though it has a reference to food, this is neither a typical modern gourmand nor one of those excessive fruity florals. Rather, it's a classic floriental, with a ripe fruity accord (I smell mostly cooked bananas, poached bosc pears and cardamom as the top notes), and with a shamelessly indolic heart of jasmine, champaca, narcissus and ylang ylang. The base is almost like a Guerlinade, with sandalwood and vanilla in almost as high a dose as Samsara, with a soft, musky powdery amber dryout."....aaaahhhhh.

    I'm in Profumum Santalum. Warming the spring day just enough.
    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
