    Found an almost full bottle of Andron for men by Jovan in the bathroom cabinet - collecting dust. So I tested that in the morning... talk about animalic! Base notes of musk, civet, ambergris AND castoreum! I'm claiming it as mine... I don't think anyone will notice Top notes somewhat remind me of Bandit.

    SotA is Moschino Couture.

    Hugs to Quarry (and everyone else who needs them!)

    How exciting that everyone is returning!

    So glad the mouth is feeling better! Just the thought brings back sympathetic twinges.

    Am looking out the window at my crab apple trees in full bloom and noticing that the lilacs are on the verge and that the roses are leafing up. A lovely time of year, full of anticipation.

    xdattax - diving is the one water activity I admire so much, but just don't feel comfortable with (mild case of claustrophobia).

    CC X for women today. Got the travel set years ago and gave the No. 1 and 1872 away, thankfully kept the X.

    Turin is absolutely correct in that X has similarities to Gucci Rush. Rush is a scent I totally enjoy right out of the bottle, but not once it has been on my skin for more than 10 minutes. X is an excellent alternative.

    Patchouli Antique for me a.m but then Beautyhabit samples were waiting fo rme when I got home from work and I have been enjoying them for most of the day. So far I have given brief testings to:
    IPDF Fiori Del Cielo - a delicate, watery floral which reminds me of Issey Miyake.
    IPDF Dolce Amaro - with its passionflower and vetiver this is a ringer for Lancome's Hypnose. More natural smelling than Hypnose I'd say.
    Carthusia Ligea La Sirena - really like this one but it is early days. It goes through several changes on my skin, starting off quite sharp and citrussy, but ends up being a soft, nuzzly, pillowy cloud of gentle mandarin tinged oppoponax. I have high hopes for me and Ligea.
    I have nine others to test so I'm set for a week of indulgence at least. Great service from Beautyhabit.

    That's unfortunate, as it is an amazing feeling. We were on a 30 foot reef today with a light current, and i've just gotten my bouancy perfect (sans wetsuit) so i was able to hover in midwater. catching the current back to the boat felt like flying. ask me tomorrow what the 70 foot wreck was like (yay for diving two days in a row!)

    Is it the thought that you're surrounded by water that causes the claustrophobia to kick in, or the mask itself? because if its the idea of a tiny mask on just your eyes there is a mask that might be of interest to you, a full face mask. it covers almost all of your face, so you're not just stuck with something on your eyes. also, a big, clear mask might help to let light in (i know a black mask can make some people feel like a horse with blinders on)

    if you ever get a chance to do a discover scuba diving class (dsd) they're cheaper than full on lessons and much more relaxed, Resort Course is another name for them. i mean, that's if you've never tired it before, and would like to give it a shot.
