    I hear you on that one! Although I just have assignments instead of exams... I'll be so happy when I can sleep more than 4 hours a night again!

    Revlon Fire & Ice again for me. This just feels like a 'working' scent.

    Hello Basenotes!

    Once more in Tom Ford Private Label

    Black Violet

    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

    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

    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:

    Burberry Summer

    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.

    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

    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.

    Feuillage Mouillé ( wet leaves) from Blanc d'Ivoire. Meant as a roomspray, but works well on clothes too.

    I particularly liked Bois Oriental.
    Notes of: violet, peach, plum, rose, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, musk, Atlas cedarwood, and vanilla.
    The atlas cedarwood is drop-dead gorgeous and flows throughout, particularly well with the vanilla and spices.

    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.
