Arabian Oud : Woody
Eau de Parfum
Still, this smells quite much like Ungaro III with sharp, mouthwateringly delicious oud.
The bottle is presented in genuine agarwood log casket, which is really neat.
Castle Forbes Neroli
Top Notes: Lemon, Rosemary
Middle Notes: Petitgrain, Basil
Base Notes: Vetiver
Rosemary, basil.... and something like jasmine, I think. Roudnitska's early classic. Very hesperidic, but balanced in a kind of extra strong form by some pretty muscular heart and base notes, beyond the old eau-de-cologne tradition.

Guerlain - Derby
Eau de Lierre by Diptyque (from a sample). Definitely my favorite of the samples that I've got, it's green piled on more green!
(And while I'm talking about Diptyque... I sprayed some Eau Lente on my arm 3-4 days ago, have taken two showers since, scrubbed the arm in both of them, and I can still smell it. Insane!)
My limited 'drobe: Boss In Motion, Armani Code, Concentre d'Orange Verte, Paul Smith Story.
Another day of fantastic Escentric 02 - Escentric Molecules!
Valentino V for me today.
Have a fab Tuesday y'all!
Weather forecast is good here in the UK, so while I await delivery of my MI, it's...

Greetings to all! Guerlain Philtre d'Amour for the second day in a row.
Thierry Mugler Miroir des Envies
This is a creamy sweet toast!
Miroir des Envies sounds good, dear Coco :wave:
Me, I'm feeling all womanly with a tropical twist in Serge Lutens
Smells wonderful in today's sunshine.
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
Sarrassins, from a sample. I was running late for work and it was there on my desk, so I just spritzed. Perfectly appropriate for today's gorgeous weather, though.
Just came back from a vacation from Paris. Will be wearing a few spritzes of Derby, my newest purchase. OMG, that Guerlain store is wonderful!
I'm simplifying my life. For Sale Thread (some niche, some designer):
Welcome back, dimples and congratulations of a classy catch!
Good morning all today is a cloudy and wet day.It was hard to get up and get ready for work today,but some spritzes of NR "For her" made it a little easier. Have a great day everybody!

II est de forts parfums pour qui toute matière/Est poreuse. On dirait qu'ils pénètrent le verre.
Lalique pour Homme. Both restrained and powerful at the same time. Interesting.

For the second consecutive day I'm wearing TOUAREGH by Il Profumo (nose Silvana Casoli). After the spicy floral opening it dries down to a soapy cleanliness that reminds me of an old schoolfriend who used to smell this way every day, though I never knew how she did it. When I commented on how wonderful she smelled it prompted her to experiment with other scents, and the one I loved was lost forever. Finally, quite by accident, Touaregh brings back a similar fragrance evokative of that lovely smelling girl.
Left arm: Burberry summer for men (I sprayed it two hours ago and don't like it, too aggressive)
Right arm: Mulger cologne (I've decided this will be one of my summer scents =D)
Tann Rokka Aki. Have a great day, everyone.
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
Boy, I've missed you all-
[Hard to get on...!]
Venus Sands- I feel tropical and womanly.....
Caron Number 3
Hombre de Flores Narcissus by Fresh
PVC and Leather. A Chain and a feather
Guerlain's Coriolan while trying my new Djedi (Guerlain's only leather scent from 1926) on the other wrist.
If one smells closely enough, faint traces of the latter can be found in the former, although the latter is both drier and more mineral.
Coriolan has been dismissed as 'ordinary' by many, but smelling it next to the very unusual Djedi, the grandiosity of it becomes remarkable.

Guerlain's Spiritueuse Double Vanille
And that is all Mr. Guerlain's fault. He got me hooked. Oh, I love my "bad vanilla"
The bird of paradise alights only upon the hand that does not grasp
Im Prague is heavily rainning at the moment and it is cold:-(
Im wearing She from Armani...it reminds me summer weather.
I wish you all a nice day.
My SotM = Silver by Amouage
(edit, changed my mind on the Antaeus!)

I'm with you Riannon I love my "bad vanilla" too. Although it isn't vanilla day for me today. It's manly man day full of leather, sandalwood, and tobacco as I wear:
Vera Wang for Men
I go away singing the manly man song; "men, men, men, men, men, men, manly men, men, men" C'mon sing it with me you know the words.

"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"
-- Eckhart Tolle
I'm singing along and grinning now.
Wearing Villoresi's Teint de Neige today. Still soooooo pretty. (And I"m not usually a 'pretty pretty' bird.)
Weather's fabulous, sunny and in the low 20s (Celcius). I'm wearing this before it gets too hot - have a feeling this is going to be a wonderful summer.
Happy happy, joy joy; happy happy, joy joy... Who remembers that little song?

Can I believe my eyes??!! Are [IMG]s back???!!!
Oh they ARE!!!!! Yaaaaay. (Compensates me for this Unisex SOTD - which I mourn. )
Anyway - am on Day Three of my Rose Week in a sample (thanks Wolfie) of LAP Drole de Rose..."created by perfumer Olivia Giacobetti in 1996, and has notes of rose, aniseed, orange blossom, white iris, violet, almond, honey, rose powder, and leather"...soft and sweet and powdery on me. Reminds me of Maman's lingerie drawer, lined with scented papers. Quite different to yesterday's "wild rose" rose blossoms covered with wet soil and redolent of Patchouli.(Voleur de Rose)
