    Belle en Rykiel, thanks to finding two tubes of the lotion at TJMaxx for $7.99 each. It's probably far too sweet for the heat, but I'm over surprising myself with things I bought two years ago and never opened.

    Glad you like it, if the juice is dark, then it should be the original. If the juice is transparent, it is most likely my Comme des garcons No 3. (which is a bit woody and rosy and smells like the Voleur de Roses by L'Artisan.

    I was wearing Datura Noir by Serge Lutens to work, my colleague complained it is a bit too sweet and it reminds her of one of the Givenchy scents? Later in the evening, I switched to Tubereuse Criminelle, and she said this is way out of her comprehension, ha ha ha.

    Creamy, spicy....yes. But sadly: no peachy note for me in Enlèvement. That is all jasmine, spices and wood on me.
    But the more I switched from one wrist to the other, the more I got the impression of Fendi's Theorema. I crossed my wrists and smelled them together....Theorema's stepsister

    I must say that I am surprised that these two fragrances really work for me in summer, but of course it is not terribly hot here at the moment.I promise I will try the MDCI in serious heat. Let's see if I can get those 'wonky' notes.
    Hmm....Theorema. Haven't sniffed that one yet.......

    And you just described how I spent last night- Chinatown on one arm, Enlevement on the other, sniffing thoughtfully - much to the chagrin of the SO, who expected me to cook dinner.

    Maybe you should wear MKK and see how she does with that

    BTW - you sent the original. Which is absolutely lovely (like the other stuff in your little package). Thanks for the confirmation!!!!

    Bois d'Orage today. The fact that this is supposed to be an "ultimate masculine" and "virile" keeps haunting me. I keep sniffing myself, thinking, "Really? Masculine? Really?" Shrug.
    It's a very, very feel-good scent for me, evocative of many enjoyable hikes. It smells like I'm standing in the middle of a yellow, late summer meadow filled with dried grasses and pollen. Funny, because this name translates to (I think) wet wood.

    Have a great weekend, everyone! I'm going hiking!

    Mothballs and "punk sticks". Punks are commonly used to light fireworks and smell like a combination of rotten fruit, sulphur and wood.

    Imagine being a theatrical pyro expert and wearing Chinatown while lighting explosives on a stage with old curtains stored in mothballs.

    That was Enlevement Au Serail on me after the first 2 hours.

    Happy Anniversary, Comdiva. Have a great time in NYC, wish I were going. Chaya have fun with SMM and then report back to us.

    Wishing everyone a great weekend!

    P.S. Sorry I screwed up and somehow ended up with 2 posts..... Don't know if I can delete one of them.

    ComDiva, a toast to you for your 20th anniversary.

    Chaya and SMM, have a blast!

    Trying Le Labo Rose 31 today (thanks, Aiona!). It is a bit spicy for my tastes, but I love how the rose interacts with the spices. The only rose frags I've tried before were too sweet for my tastes (Stella, I'm talking to you). So I'm looking forward to exploring "rose plus" frags.

    Wow - lots of fun-sounding outings and celebrations today, along with some beguiling fragrance descriptions. I have a little sunburn (missed some spots with the sunscreen, darn it!), so I am wearing Eau de Goldbond Medicated Powder. Actually quite nice and soothing as can be!

    For the 25th I started out in Il Bacio and finished up with Ambra Del Nepal all over my right arm and Gotham on my left. Happy, happy me!

    For the evening - test-driving some beach-marine scents, thanks to this thread: http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=212818

    Creative Universe - Mare: opens light and airy and slightly briny - a hint of cedar and some spices. Virgin beach, clean and glistening - deserted.

    Calypso - Marine - hot black sands of Martinique, Euoros with sleek tanned bodies wafting expensive oils. more than a hint of skank over salt.

    TDC - Sel di Vetiver
    - flowery...iris and patchouli with a hint of celery but no vetiver. Thatched huts on a crescent beach of blinding white sand and impossibly aqua water.

    Il Profumo - Aria di Mare - Hibiscus and gardenias and freesia growing right down to the rocky shore - you have to walk thought herby patches to get to the water. Frou frou. Sweet.

    For the wild beach experience - so far Beth Terry is leading the pack.

    Well, folks-
    SMM and I DID NOT HAVE EVEN ONE SNIFF !
    REALLY !!!

    We met, ate wonderful sushi, and chatted for nearly 3 hours straight- we could have talked all day.
    What a lovely, warm, kind man he is.
    Handsome, snuggly, brilliant.
    Dear, dear soul.

    I hope to do it again, some time- or feed him, sniff through my crazy collection.

    ComDiva and DH- weekend in NYC !
    Have a marvellous time !

    After feeling a little dissatisfied with the latest Kenzo samples I have tried, I went back to one of my standards (decant, unfortunately):

    Chanel Eau de Cologne

    For the first time when wearing it today, I noticed a bit of coconut. And not a hint of cinnamon floor wax--what a relief!

    It is a very late post but this was an awesome day.
    Chaya and I met and we talked for three hours over sushi that seemed like 15 minutes.
    We spoke of many things, fools and kings, but nothing better than meeting a new friend.
    She is incorrect that we didn't sniff anything. I sniffed Parfum D'Ida on her and I'm pretty sure she sniffed my SotD
    Yohji Homme
    on me.
    For the day no SA's were harmed in the making of this friendship.
    Next time I'll have to see if I'm man enough for two Chayas.
    If my heart can't take it I will expire with a smile, of that I'm sure.

    SotD was EL Bronze Goddess (getting lots of wear out of this one!)
    SotE is Datura Noir. So darn pretty.

    And I am missing all these wonderful notes? Including Twolfs 'onion' experience?
    Who said that body chemistry was not relevant?

    SotE was Invasion Barbare also from Parfums MDCI

    Good to hear that SMM and Chaya had a wonderful time together. There will be other days to test the 'smellies'.

    ComDiva and husband, have a great memorable weekend
