    Kewart, hope you are you feeling better.

    Ok, I wanted to wear Good Life Woman today but didn't find it ... strange, since my perfumes are stored in one cupboard and one drawer and nowhere else.
    Anyway I was all set to something fruitfloriental, therefore I picked up Paco Rabanne

    I still don´t know, I know it´s a Creed and TaoLady send it to me in the huge sample collection. Like yesterday I woke up and when I was dressed and capable of unwrapping it I sprayed it once on my wrist and placed it in my bag to take to work in case further spraying is required.

    First impressions, much lighter than the jasmine from yesterday, I may in fact have to spray again. It´s a lot more wearable as well, lighter and fresher. It smells a bit like soap with citrus added in it that becomes clear in the end. I don´t detect any flowers in this but it´s green and clean.

    On the way to work while sniffing my wrist I went between thinking it was female, unisex, female and unisex. I think this could be worn pretty well by a guy. When I got into work I let my bf sniff it since he is actually interested in my little blind snffing test and he was really interested when I told him yesterday that the Jasmine was created in 1870 and still produced today, a glimpse back in time. Pretty cool.

    His reaction was: ''wow''..come back again for snif, ''that´s rather nice actually''

    For me it´s a citrus scent with something green added to it, It´s clean light and wearable but part of me also feels that you can get something like this for a lot less money. To people who are very much into these kind of fragrances it´s probably worth it because they can detect subtle differences that might make this a lot better. For me I could get the same pleasure elsewhere I think.

    I prefer the complete strangeness of the Jasmine yesterday that really grows on you and changes your mood a little bit, something completly different, an education, something that sparks an opinion, that wants to be noticed and then blends in smooth.

    I do think that whatever I´m wearing is sharper than other citrussy green scents, it tickles your brain...maybe I need to stop inhaling my wrist though.

    Either way, I´m going for another spray and see how it goes an hour or two from now, and then I´ll read the label too. I´m kinda curious now.

    :dancing up and down: ... I know what Lian is w-e-a-ring! I know what Lian is w-e-a-ring! (Reminds me of those great Three Blind Guess contests Wolfie sponsored last year!)

    Speaking of Wolfie - thanks to her bottomless generosity am in a sample of limited edition Guerlain Philtre d'Amour this ayem.

    This is another of those frags that develop upside down on me. It opened with a peculiar combo of lightweight patchouli and something acrid-herby went through some equally lightweight old-timey flowers and ended up in a burst of lightweight citrus.Now the whole has settled into a sort of combo of all this with the emphasis on the soft flowers and a tiny spicy zing.

    This love potion is quite Guerlain-y (where would I be without "y" and "ish"??) and absolutely spot-on for tai chi on a grey day!!

    As I am now in the part of the year where I no longer have to work on Friday again until September, Thursday is now the new Friday. To celebrate, and as House Brother with Taolady, I am wearing for the first time:

    Guerlain Habit Rouge

    Wow what a blast this one is full of my favorite notes. I feel like singing like Julie Andrews in "The Sound of Music"
    Rosewood and citrus and lovely vanilla; roses and spices and a hint of leather; these are a few of my favorite notes.

    Hope everyone has a great day today.

    Ok, its no longer light and green, I say it´s now warming up and it´s still fresh and a bit citrussy but it´s no longer in your face citrus and there is something in there, woody maybe? spices?

    So I finally looked at the bottle and it´s Fleurs de Bulgarie. I had not expected that at all, I thought it was way too fresh to be a flowery fragrance. Is that the difference between the typical moden day mainstream flower scents that give me a headache and make me sneeze all day and something that has more quality to it? One gives me a headache and the other just puzzles me, being rather light and fresh, and then adds a little warmth and spice to it.

    I'm sampling Serge Lutens Sarrasins this morning. It's pretty intensely sweet and jasminey right off the bat (nothing wrong with that), and now it's turning a bit more honeyed and golden. I'm quite enjoying it so far.

    I hope everybody has a brilliant Thursday.

    I didn't recognize it until I read Lilybelle's comment about hearing lyrics in her head, but having seen Blondie's name repeatedly here, the D.J. in the back of my brain has been spinning "Once I had a love, and it was a gas ..." Rock on, Tigs.

    Today, I'm sampling Velvet Gardenia. I dismissed it as 'meh, gardenia, dime a dozen' when I was first going through the Tom Fords. I decided to give it a shot and am really glad; it is sooo lovely. I'm not great at detecting many notes, but this really is a true gardenia - fresh and luscious, yet ever so slightly dark.

    Grrrrr. Had a double tire blow-out late last night on a major freeway on the way home from LA (along with a dozen other cars that apparently ran over the same thing). Luckily, we're fine, but we had to stay in a rat-trap overnight and pay $$$ today to get my poor car fixed.

    But then, I remembered that while I don't have a toothbrush or fresh clothes, I do have a tester of
    Jo Malone White Jasmine & Mint
    . It lifted my spirits and made me feel refreshed (the heck with the other stuff).

    I was in the mood for Estee Lauder's Sensuous today. This extremely balanced scent wears so well throughout the day - a constant, yet soft woodsy-musky, scent, that definitely has a well-adjusted, confident (even ever-so-slightly cocky), satiated, in-the-moment character. I know this sounds odd, but I feel that the scent itself is smiling in the bottle, equally happy to reside within it, and, to come out and sing it's carefree, joyfull song. BTW - this is the first time a scent has been personified to me. Perhaps I'm losing my mind...but I really feel a presence behind this scent.

    Chasse aux Papp (regular version). I've only just come around to this one, although I adore the Extreme version. The linden of the original was difficult for me when I was in a firm spice mode and I rejected it out of hand. Several years later, I won a bottle of the Extreme after bidding whimsically and found myself wearing it more than any other. Now, I've got a box full of Rousses and Frapins and Ravageurs that are deadly in the heat and a small collection of tropicals and white florals that are decidedly more enjoyable.

    this morning i had on Bois de Iles from a sample i scored at the chanel botique last night (the lady sprayed some into a little plasitc baggie for me since they can't give out the mini bottles). i like it, but i'm not sure if i'm ready to commit... i think a decant purchase is in order to really see if i want another 200 ml chanel bottle.

    later this afternoon I wore Epecia from Creed. I went back to the mall in which the chanel boutique is in (had to pick up the jewelry i dropped off to be cleaned) and bought a bottle of it. yay! i heart its piney-ness. its lovely and cool. perfect for the summer in a strange way.

    Tonight I am wearing (from samples):

    Serge Lutens Douce Amere on the right
    Miller Harris Fleurs du Sel on the left

    The Miller Harris is VERY nice, although a bit masculine for my tastes. It starts out bitter and salty with some cedar or other wood. Later in the drydown, it turns into a balanced fougere--a bit dry from the cedar, and a little sweet from some other note I can't identify. Could be something like pimento berries, because it seems a bit peppery or spicy, and it also reminds me of MH Piment de Baies (which I think also has pimento in it).

    The SL--welllll, I am still trying to figure out this one. Douce Amere smells almost exactly like Kenzo Amour to me, except a bit more woody, a bit less linear, and much shorter lived. And on Lucky Scent, they say that DA also smells like Keiko Mecheri Paname. Is Kenzo Amour the real value here?

    I'm still getting to know Sarrasins (got my sample at The Perfumed Court). I don't know yet if it's Major Love, but it's very, very nice. I even like the purple color.

    I really love Tom Ford's Velvet Gardenia. I think I could go for a full bottle. If I had any extra money to spend, which I do not this month.
