    Good luck Tavorna and Jillsy! It was not long ago that I was freaking out over my own exams, so lots of hugs, and you'll both do great!

    Today, I am wearing my sample of:

    Acqua di Parma Iris Noble

    It is lovely, but the name is quite misleading. I do not detect any iris! However, it is a "cool floral", a little bit sweet, and great for a warm summer day. It is sitting much better than yesterday's EL Pure White Linen.

    Ubu, I have samples of all the Lutens Bois series, plus Feminite du Bois and Dior Dolce Vita. When I get my perfumes back (maybe as soon as next week), I'll pitch in on a new Bois thread!

    Continuing my exploratory ride this week, courtesy of the sweet Maisonstinky. Today's selection: Montale Fruits of the Musk.

    Upon application, I had an unsweetened fruit salad. No citrus. I think strawberries and maybe some stone fruits--plums? Okay. Wearable, but not particularly compelling. But just a few minutes in ... and the musk is taming the fruits' acid. This is turning very nice. I don't have any Mure et Musk around for comparison, but I think this is different and less sweet from that well-known L'Artisan. As with other various samples of late, I don't know that this is pushing any of my "love" buttons at this stage, but it's imminently wearable and I recommend your trying it if this is your category of scent.

    Now to look up the official description (yay! I wasn't far off in my assessment!): strawberry leaves, mandarin, bergamot of Italy, blackberry, rose essence of Bulgaria, white musk, raspberry, grey amber.

    If the rose and amber can rise up over the course of the day, this may get quite entertaining.

    I wasn't quite sure to wear on a blazingly hot, humid day so I opted for what makes me happy ( which I am in need of a heaping dose of happy)....SL Cuir Mauresque.

    Late last night I was inspired to dig up some old Ofra Haza videos on You Tube. Before I fell into sleep I watched Im nin'alu (very nostalgic for me). It made me dream of some kind of quest in a mysterious, yet romantic desert. I could smell a fragrance in my dream, but I woke up and it wasn't something I was wearing. It's not something I own, and I'm going to wrack my brains trying to find something like it, it was so lovely.

    The closest fragrance I have that captures the mood of the dream is Aqaba. So, it's Aqaba for me today. It's beautiful and sunny, and the birds in the canyon behind my backyard are singing so loudly I feel like I'm in a jungle! Aqaba is working well today, from the desert of my dreams to the jungle of my life. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSMl8SpT6p0

    Coco for me today thanks to Seattlelight, I loooove it. It's just right for the lovely winter we are still having in Washington state. It snowed on the passes last night.

    Testing several (THANKS dewey eyed!): Hanae Mori EdT, Magical Moon, and HM. Also La Prairie Silver Rain. So far Silver Rain is winning by a nose over Magical Moon. HM is a little too ...sharp?...masculine? and Hanae Mori (which is now Butterfly?) is just plain too much. Alas, not one is FBW, but on the other hand none is scrub-worthy either!

    Tried my sample of Estee Lauder's Private Collection TUBEROSE GARDENIA. It is beautiful on me! I love the not-sweet greenness of it. I'm so grateful for this forum - I'd have never tested an Estee Lauder scent had I not read the reviews of this one here!

    SOTE
    Sampling Ramon Molvizar Luna
    Starts out masculine. I've sniffed at Luna a couple times over the last few days, and I always get that masculine vibe, but this night I'm really going to see this fragrance through. As it dries down it changes gender, and by the time I smelled my hand in the morning, it gave off a mildly sweet, floral-wood scent.

    Official description: Like a magic spell which strikes away through the darkness, Luna/Moon
    perfume carries the senses away on the path of art and seduction. Tones of spice with a gentle touch of white wood, against a musk background make up this vibrant fragrance.


    Spices are a problem for me. I'm sure this will be very popular with those who like them.

    Paris Jardin romantiques 2007 YSL When spray it on I smell green notes and lily of the valley befor it turns to roses. This one seems lighter and going away sooner as the other issues.

    Paris Pont des amours 2008 is a lot sweeter and stays vere well for long time.
