    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.

    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 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.

    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?

    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.

    Re-sampling A La Nuit. I had not resorted my Excel sheet and forgot that I tried this out just two weeks ago (and didn't see it down there near the bottom of the list). I like it, but it doesn't match the brown tones of the outfit I'm wearing today. Oh well; if this is the worst mistake I make today, it should be a great day!

    p.s. I remembered when the unforgettable blast of pure jasmine hit. This fragrance amazes me!
