Enjoy your day!

Craving Un Bois Vanille after trying it for the first time yesterday. I put on my yummy L de Lolita Lempicka in an attempt to satisfy the craving.
First post for a few days - for some reason the server kept telling me it was busy last week (and then I was busy at the weekend).
Musc Ravageur today, which I wore yesterday also.
Have a good day peeps. Looks as though the sun is finally shining in England.
Dia - Amouage, for me today.
Have a wonderful day, all!
A lovely, warm spring day here in Norway today!
I sprayed on some L´Air du Temps this morning. Sometimes I just can´t stand this scent on me, but today it *sat*. Maybe it is one of those frags that turns evil when I put on too much (still happens a lot...)
Hey! A big THANK YOU to everyone who wished me welcome back from my lurking yesterday - love ya!!!
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Was up late last night finishing off an assignment that's not due til next week, so as a midnight pick-me-up wore TBS Vanilla. It stuck around for most of the morning, then was replaced with Fleurs de Bulgarie.
I think Tavorna has me craving Un Bois Vanille now too. But instead for my SotE(/SotN?) I picked up and sprayed Ambre Sultan, having not found my UBV sample. Decided I preferred Ambre Narguile and so dabbed that on the other wrist to compare. Wow everytime I test Narguile it just keeps getting better! Thanks tdi!
Have a great day everyone
I'm jumping ion while I still can-
In Grand Amour, day 2, off to work.
Love you !
Good morning, near and far!
My package from Mr. Montale came this morning, so I am proudly wearing my first oudh scent ever
Bought blind, trusting AgentProvocateur's tastes !:wave:
She was right, it's excellent. A little bit stronger than White Aoud, for which I also fell
Notes are Aoud, Pepper, Rose, Saffron, Cumin, Vetiver from Haiti, Mysore Sandalwood.
As a side note, Montale's customer service seems to be less than consistent. No free travel size in sight and NO samples (and I assure you, I asked for them).
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
Samsara, which I haven't worn in a long time. Warm and creamy scent on a cold, clear day.

Hello everyone, Fragonard Grain de Soleil for me today.
Notes: rose, jasmine, iris, cinnamon, amber, vanilla, incense
Have a wonderful day, all.

Good morning everybody For this grey winther's day I'm in Coco Chanel.Need the extra "oompf" it gives me. Enjoy your day!
wow, everyone smells snoogly good today!
I am joining you in Angel...what a surprise for me!
Somehow it is just sweet and earthy enough to please me.
"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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
Juiced up in the juicy, four-star
form a juicy BNer sample (thankyouthankyouthankyou!!)

Do you, ladies (and gents!), have days when you get up, try about three fragrances deciding what to wear and finally dismiss every one of them for various reasons? Welcome to my mornings!
I think I will wear Giorgio Armani Cuir Amethyste from the Prive line, thanks to a fabulous BN across the Pacific Ocean. Back in 2006 I read reviews of it, dissing this scent for the lack of longevity and leather among other things, and never had a chance to try it myself. And guess what? That's the way *aha aha*! Too bad I can't go to the ball. Again!
CdG's energy C lime
I have to take daughter No.2 to the pulmonologist this am and scent is highly frowned on in the office I will be scent free for a couple of hours! I'm going to throw a couple of samples in my purse so my SotD will be a grab bag surprise. I'm going to the Allison Krause /Robert Plant concert tonight so I will wear something special later.
Can't quite tell yet whether I'm getting sick or the newly budded maple trees are kicking my allergies into high gear. Needed something light and herbal, so Borsari's Acqua Della Macchia Mediterranea for me today.
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

I am wearing Parfum de Therese. A fragrance of pure beauty, it makes me feel more beautiful when I wear it. My bottle is almost empty. Even with this downed economy, I do know that it must be replaced. My husband doesn't view it as essential, but he is so wrong.
Do so agree with you Therese (how nice to have a perfume named
after you!!) I too adore LPDT. Decided to wear Angel today - hope I
don't regret it later. It tends to turn a bit strange on me after a few hours.
The opening is a delight, however.

Today I'm in the mood for Coco! Not sure why, just cravin' it!

Am sampling Coney Island.

I felt like Sun Moon & Stars (thanks Tang - my prize from a previous contest) and I just walked into a room where my mother was and she declared I smelled delicious!
Happy Earth Day everyone!!!
Ohhh YUM!!! Lady in Black!!
You smell divine!!!!!
Red Aoud is surely one of my
favorite Montales! So glad you like it !
Do you as well get that slightly toasted, sugared
pecan note mingling with the way lychee fruit
smells like when you walk by them in the market?
Today for another gorgeous, sunny and warm day
I've chosen to wear L’Été en Douce.
Every time I wear it, it makes me think of lazy
summer afternoons sitting in the shade under a tree,
grass tickling my bare feet, sipping orange blossom
flavored iced tea, reading a great book - everything is still
for a moment and then a light gust of wind brings the
scent of linden blossoms - a content smile.
