    Grey and rainy here too. Finally received a swap package from Malaysia loaded with lots of goodies! Unfortunately 2 Chanel Allure vials got smashed in the post and so upon opening the parcel my hands were soaked in the stuff. Luckily it's gorgeous and there were 4 vials of it!

    Happy birthday to lizzie_j hope its a great one full of White Stripes tunes and your favorite scent.

    Today I am wearing:

    Yohji Homme

    This is what I was expecting from Idole de Lubin and didn't get. In that one the rum just smelled like an old bar after closing time on me. In this one the rum mixes delightfully with a little spice and the leather is starting to come through, which never happened with Idole. The tough part is that this one is discontinued so I'm going to have to find a way to get more.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Goodmorning people.

    Today I woke up by the question ´are you coming to work or not´asked by my lovely bf at 10. I had a nyquil the night before to assure I would fall asleep after nights of tossing and turning. And how I slept. I snoozed off again being woken up by an envlop falling on me, a big envlop containing lovely lovely vials of perfume.

    I thanked Taolady mentally and admired her cunning in avaiding customs by marking it as a gift, a practise that some find diffecult to master. I browsed through the contents of the envlop struggling with the wrapping and more wrapping of the precious vials containing something more interesting than liquid gold, I gave up when I was able to see that teh final layer was some kind of tape and decided to tackle it again when I was more awake and out of bed. It did wake me up and I got dressed, after all the dressing and stuff I sat down and undid one vial of its teasing layers and sprayed it on before leaving the house.

    I sprayed it once on my wrists and decided I would take the vial with me to work in case I needed more.

    Turns out its Jasmin Impératrice Eugénie by Creed. Hot damn am I lucky I sprayed it once, this is powerful. On my way to walk I kept smelling jasmine and jasmine and flowers and either it was that strong or it was just ´stuck´in my nose. at work I feel I´m still in a jasmine cloud and for some reason I swear I smell musc as well and for a second I also thought it smelled of baby oil. Yes people, I smell baby oil and jasmine and some muscy spicey ness.

    It is a lovely and warm, old perfume, maybe not something I could wear everyday because I´m not sure it suits my general personality but definitly something for the winter when things get dark around here and more retrospective and we all sit down and think about things a lot more.

    For me this would be something to wear when I finally get around to writing my philosophy thesis, or when I´m tired of my ambitious self and what to wear something that will calm me down, something that is more private and soothing like, telling me to slow down and see how something turns out instead of stressing it and worrying and trying to manipulte the situation( bvlgari black) or running away from it like you can do with some gourmands ( I smell cookies, life is fine hoenstly. I´m not stressed hmmm cookie cookie cookie).

    In short

    woaw, wtf am I wearing today!? Snif snif..not too bad. Snif snif, I feel old. Snif snif, nah not old more like responsible and sensible while still being me..just better tempered. Snif on wrist, it does smell old...is that what they mean with classic? I should stop inhaling my wrist, its nicer from afar...yes this is workable, maybe not for every day but certainly for days you don´t feel like dealing with people but with yourself.

    Same weather pattern here, not even funny -- hot and stuffy. Boooooooooring! Summers like this force me to think about one and the same fragrance for every day, but NO! I am still experimenting and sticking to "Different Day -- Different Scent" scheme, although nothing really works in this humid heat, nothing pleases me to no extent so that I am compelled to repeat. Woods are all right, citrus evaporates too quickly, incense sticks and stinks, florals are too screachy, chypres are too mossy, you know...

    Ellen Tracy Tracy -- I first tried it for our diversity month and liked it somewhat, so it is my second wear today. Plum blossom and peony (Miss Tao, it smells like the real thing, I swear!) give way to powdery sweet heart with light woods. Definitely need to wear it more to understand it better.

    Tinks, these are mighty fine pictures in your album, kisses to both Princess C. and Jasmine!

    Coty Wild Musk is comfy this morning in anticipation of another rain storm passing by. But I really crave some gardenia on top of it. I need to look for a gardenia musk scent.

    Taolady - I've been a big fan of Sophia Grosjman's fragrances over the years. I didn't realize they were all created by the same person until later. Sun Moon Stars, though, is one I've never tried. I used to see it in the drug store now and then. I should head over to Walgreens and see if they have a tester.

    Lian - I enjoyed reading your post. Sounds like you've been doing the "Basenotes Salute" this morning! Be careful!

    Have a wonderful day everybody!

    Happy birthday Lizzie_j and good day everyone!

    Sharing Twolf's despair at the hot, sticky weather (BLECH! ) and debating running across town to smell SMM's neck, because I love Idole de Lubin (which stays sweet and boozy on me, with a spicy and wet leather drydown) and now want to see what Yojhi Homme does on his skin.

    Speaking of Lubin, I am testing Lubin L'Eau Neuve from a sample today, and it's hitting all the right spots for me in this steamy weather. It may have been released in 1968, but it doesn't feel dated or retro to me at all. Very nice! Oh dear.

    And I turn 'ze deaf oreille' [sic].
    Tant pis pour Maman, I always posit.

    Happy birthday, Mz. Liz ! May it be a sweet one....

    Lian, I like the sound of you...!

    Alas, I've not yet been to Reykjavik [ I dearly WANT to !], but :
    I named my favorite 'stuffed' Icelandic sheep by that name-
    And my dear friend was born and grew up there-
    And, my DH used to stopover there, as a boy, en route to Kaunas, to visit his grandmother.

    Welcome !

    Poor tdi. Feel better, honey.
    Terrykins- you got BALLS, babe- I love that one, but it's SO NASTY out there...

    SMM- I'll join my lovesister CD in neck-sniffing you today, boyo [ EVEN THOUGH you are WAY too young for my tastes- I'm a nonagenarian molester, teehee !]...MWAH!

    Hope Kewart feels better, poor thing.
    And all who ache.

    My jollitry masks an MF of a migraine- which I dutifully [ or foolishly- take your pick] ignored all day yesterday, thinking it was running around in the swelter, dumbass that I am.
    [That was my MIA yesterda]

    Lovely CD sent me a marvellous surprise yesterday !
    NOBODY can send surprises like that gal.

    Liz Zorn also surprised me with a package, too.
    Thank the Lord for you folks.
    The cosmos seems to know when we need it.

    Today, the Madwoman will wear a VERRRRY dirty jasmine / civet thingie Liz wears.
    I want to SWIM in it.
    Dear lord- takes my very breath away.

    Love to all !

    65 degrees and fluorescent in my little corner of cubicle world. Like it is every day.

    Weather? What weather?

    Trying Balenciaga Le Dix today.

    Anyone who is a Bois de Iles junkie needs to try this one. It's not as subtle as the Bois de Iles, stronger sillage, heavier on the aldehydes, but it is still a beautiful scent.

    Lian - I feel your pain regarding the evil postmonsters. You can't get your scents. I can't send them (easily).

    You are a lucky lady to be adopted by Ms. Taolady (whom I fondly regard as my fairy scentmother). She's got great taste, no?

    Lilybelle ~ Ava Luxe has a "Gardenia Musk" that would be perfect for you! (I only had a small decant, and it's gone....sorry!...otherwise I'd get some to you!) I think Ineespenes(?) has worn it before as well.

    lizzie_j ~ Happiest Birthday wishes to you!

    Lian ~ Love your writing! Vivid imagery! Isn't Taolady the queen of generosity?!

    Sending happy/healthy vibes to all on this beautiful July Wednesday...

    Ms. Taolady is wonderful and I love her taste and it´s so nice to be surprised in perfumes, just grab a vial spray it on( or dab) and later discover what it is you actually smelling.

    I think I might test more like this because sometimes I´m worried you hear so much about a perfume you desperately try to recognize what is and remember what you read about it.

    I knew it was a Creed and I vaguely remember what she mentioned she had, but I didn´t see the details on the bottle. So on the way to work and at work I could really get to know the scent itself and not what other people had said about it, it allows you to form your own opinion better maybe?

    I´m now well into the drydown and I love it, I still smell the jasmine faintly and I think the sandalwood is slipping through more heavily now.

    Taolady, you are a real perfumista guerdian to novice students.

    Hubby and I have decided to go to the beach today. So, I'll spritz something light on my way out, maybe Viva Escada (it always smells like summer to me, peaches and mangos) or, perhaps, some Green Tea.

    Later today, afer the beach, I am inspired by Taolady and shall wear Sun, Moon, STars which I won in one of the Guess the Bottle contest and love!

    Wore Neil Morris Zephyr earlier today. It is a lovely citrus, like mandarins and cream to me, but on my dry skin it faded away, shame. Testing Gotham made me want to dig out my Baghari sample so that I can wear one on each arm and compare when I go for my run this evening. It is a strange ritual but it keeps me amused!

    I'm feeling exotic and mysterious in Amouage Jubilation XXV for men. Talk about staying power!

    Happy birthday, lizzie_j!

    Hope everyone is feeling better, and thanks to Taolady for yesterday's welcome to the cradle! (BTW, tinker, I love your avatar, needless to say.)

    Today is Eau d'Hadrien. Boy am I on a great trial streak here!

    Well - more for us! :bounce:

    I don´t think of it as a rose scent (but it is, of course), but a light, powdery scent with great balanced sweet notes, jam, vanilla, saffron...a skin scent on me.

    Gourmandises it will be for SotE/N!

    SotE is Tauer Perfumery's Le Maroc pour Elle, which is really growing on me. It's exotic yet dry. Like that about it.

    And following Lian's example I'm spending the evening in something I have no idea what it is (or who sent it to me!) but it's a lovely light grapefruit/lemonade and muguet in a mauve metallic lipstick-case and it's yumsters!!

    Tinker424 and Musse, you have me sorely tempted with your descriptions of GOURMANDISES. It's going on my "order these samples" list. Thanks!

    Happy birthday, Lizzie J! I hope there is not much smoke at your house. My part of Northern CA is nasty-hot and blanketed with wild fire smoke. Scary!

    Today I'm sampling Stéphanie de Saint-Aignan's AMANDE HONORABLE for the second time. It is a calming and coolish scent - just perfect for this day.

    SotD: Guerlain AA - Anisia Bella on this very H, H & H day. It's absolutely de-humidifying!

    Chanel Allure was SOTD. Again. I get into dangerous ruts with that stuff. SOTE is going to be nada as I am on the headachy side. Aveeno relaxing lotion if anything. Got a bunch of samples in the mail and its so hot and yicky I can't even try them. Resolution for tomorrow-wear something BESIDES Chanel.

    Happy belated Birthday to Lizzie!

    Tinker, once again I am jealous....I love KM Gourmandises, it's been on my wish list a very long time.

    SotE was Chanel 31 Rue Cambon and I truly am in LOVE with this one. Why do the bottles have to be so freakin big though?
