CdG Monocle Hinoki
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
"Wovon man nicht lesen kann, darüber muss man schreiben."
Neil Morris - AEGAN
Very decent citrus for a decently sunny day - hoping it stays that way.
"Perfume is the dream that carries me."
There is always the sky to look at
Once more in Tom Ford Private Label
This is a violet I like, dark and fruity, and I even appreciate the oakmoss/treemoss base.
Notes: citrus, pulpy fruit accord (my nose says mandarin and peach), black violet, woody notes, oakmoss.
Go go go, jillsy and tavorna! Supportive hugs to our busy students
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
Thanks Lady in Black! I saw our accounting class's forum and it made me realise just how awesome Basenotes is
Studying didn't get too far... I figure I'm not going to learn much more accounting the night before the exam
Anyway, testing a tiny bit of SL Bois de Violette. Could have told me it was carnation and I would have believed you! Tis rather nice though

Today I have the day off For some reason I reached for my decant of Bois des iles today and it feels just right! Good luck to Tavorna and Jillsy and hope the rest of you have a great day!
Guerlain Plus Que Jamais
Notes include lemon, bergamot, ylang-ylang, neroli, iris, jasmine and vanilla
Have a wonderful day, everyone.
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
not feeling well today ... I think I will wear Angel, but only a tiny bit.
I've trademarked the color bleu
Etro Raving. Dry woods, spices, sweet incense. One odd but tenacious note that makes the whole thing deliciouis.
Also tested Worth Courtesan before the shower.
Today's sample I'm trying is:
Perfectly nice scent but nothing to write home about. I'll enjoy it today but I can't see picking up more down the line.
SMM - thanks for answering the "Group of Death" question. I didn't realize that Romania was considered one of the better teams - though after watching them against France the other night, it makes sense.
Today - L'Artisan Fleurs d'Oranger 2007.
Green, dry orange blossom for a slightly less sweltering day.
Good in combination with Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla leave in conditioner (which is a dead ringer for Pilar and Lucy's Tiptoeing.....) BTW - if you have never tried this stuff, absolutely fantastic with the only downside being that the lovely scent of the conditioner will practically obliterate any perfume that you are wearing.

Taking my car in for service this morning, I reached for the calming scent of...
Scent One: Hinoki by Comme des Garcons x Monocle
"When you become comfortable with uncertainty. infinite possibilities open up in your life"
-- Eckhart Tolle
Y'all are so upbeat and sprightly this ayem!! Hope Jillsy's aced her exam and Tavorna - you get some sleep!...Shades, hope you perk up. And I'm hearing so much about HInoki I feel a sample coming on!!
It's, like, only 75 F (22.8 C) at 7:39...so maybe some...
...Vetyver Haiti (CSP) Smoky vetiver under wafting island flowers and a hint of lemony bergamot. Fresh and refreshing!!

Les Nez - Let me play the Lion for today. Have a wonderful day everyone.
Encouragement to our (wonderful smelling) students, healing vibes to those who need, an easy and inexpensive tune-up to my bro'!
Hoping for a drop in the heat and humidity, but I'm taking no chances in Guerlain Sous le Vent. Love this one! Enormous thanks to Gerald for first sending SLV my way.
Notes (courtesy of Mr. Guerlain's review):
Top notes: Bergamot, lavender, tarragon.
Middle notes: Jasmine, carnation, green notes.
Base notes: Iris, foresty notes, woody notes.
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

Generously provided by one of the finest individuals I know.
I couldn't resist sneaking a spritz of my stepfather's Terre d'Hermes this morning. It's cool, dry perfection in this soupy warm weather.
Have a lovely day.
For the next three days I've decided to go on a Lutens Bois sample binge!

Michael Storer Yvette, from a sample.
This is a sweeter floral than what I usually wear, but I am enjoying it. I think the mixture of terragon, heliotrope, and tonka are what intrigue me, because tropical flowers are usually too fruity and sweet for me.
Good luck to all of our hard working students!
sotd Chanel #5 edp...I'd dismissed this for such a long time. Retried it last summer in the heat & loved it.
