Monsieur de Givenchy
Top Notes: Lemon, Carnation, Cinnamon, Black Pepper
Middles Notes: Lavender, Verbena
Base Notes: Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Musk
A very clean, gentlemanly scent featuring lemon and verbena notes, ably supported by lavender and spice, a hint of fresh floral, and an oakmoss-woody drydown.
Very classic and chic, it has a minimalist feel that makes it seem much more modern than the Cold War baby it is. At almost fifty years old, it is still in style today.
Yr good bud,

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
Happy birthday, CoL!
Another day in Folavril for me.

Sampled SL Arabie today. It was just WAY too much. Very cloying and sickly sweet. Felt very boozy and reminded me of some kind of fruit pudding. Not for me!
I am wearing Grand Amour (Annick Goutal) today.

Birthday greetings Col!
To echo Musse: "Happy "syttende mai" to all Norwegians! " (I trust that's not dirty!)
HAPPIEST of B-days to our esteemed and modest moderator CoL..
And because P. Turin suggested that VIW is a sort of knock of - and not as good as - I am in
BBW Coconut Lime Verbena
..."two *s - pina colada - at eleven times the price"
Take me to de Islands, Mon!!
Edited later: Did an arm side-by-side - and I gotta say the VIW dries down green and dusty and cedar-y on me - whilst the CLV is warmer with just a hint of coconut and a blush of verbena. Better, IMN-S-H0!!!

"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
Happy birthday, Col! Enjoy your day and throw caution to the winds.
Today it's Chanel Bois des Iles for me, with a little test spot of Fragonard's Fragonard , thanks to the marvelous Twolf!
Notes for the Fragonard (from their web site): Jasmine, lily and honeysuckle, against a mellow background of amber and bergamot.

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

And happy Norwegian National Day - is there anything special we should do or eat or wear to celebrate it?

Hoping to try Cool Water and Beyond Paradise for Men today when I run some errands at the mall.
I am over the top and loving it in Black Orchid. I have thrown open the windows of the apartment to let in the cool air and spring sun. I am going to spend the day happily planning the itinerary of our upcoming trip. I have been working on the fragrance shopping list for months now.
Therese, where to? Perfume shopping possibilities?
