Enjoy your weekend

May or may not, Nukapai? Go for it, at least sniff at your heart's content, it is all for work anyhow (you are planning to wear it to work too, right? ).
Best of the weekends to the ComDivas and everybody!
"Calm and beautiful", Brotha? Sounds great.
I want to feel calm and beautiful as well so.....JickyEDT for this warm day.
The bird of paradise alights only upon the hand that does not grasp
SL Rousse to satisfy my cinnamon craving.
Have a wonderful weekend, all!

EL Bali Dream for a HOT day. Have had two showers already, but I still smell like the basenotes of BD is sweat...
Have a fab Saturday, everyone! :bounce:
Voleur de Roses. Staying at home while everyone else seems to have gone away. Have a relaxing weekend!
Tom Ford Black Orchid for me today...I'M lovin' this at the moment
Good morning all Yesterday we ended up at my bf's bestfriend's house and had a liiittlle bit too much to drink,so feel a bit weird today.Later today I will pick up a 60's dress that a woman has been doing some changes on to fit my figure Looking forward to get it! In an attempt to feel less shabby today I'm in Chergui.Hope you all have a great saturday.
Attending a wedding today (outdoor garden wedding), so I'm choosing EL's Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia. It will be a much classier affair than the demolition derby from last night !!!
I'm tellin' ya', just when you think you've seen 'em all...I couldn't beleive the mullets, ponytails, rattails, and mohawks on people. Not to mention the clothes! Tops too low ~ or too tight ~ shorts too short ~ or too tight!!! ~ and I think my husband & I were the only one's over the age of 12 without tattoos! Where do these people come from? Maybe I'm totally oblivious...at any rate, the people watching was as crazy as the smashed up cars! Tons of fun!
Yep, a wedding today will be the opposite extreme! Have a great Saturday y'all!!!!!
Ms. ComDiva - Didn't say it yesterday so I'll say it today - Happy Anniversary!!!!
And thank you for the YSL Paris Roses Enchentees. (the 2005 LE flaker to Paris).
This is a really interesting study in roses - veering on the clean side with a pretty clean (yet not particularly soapy) musk drydown.
ineespenes - Joining you in fuzzyland this morning after the first blue crab feast of the summer!
I slipped easily into Grey Flannel earlier as SotD

A big thank you to Twolf for introducing Histoire D'eau Mauboussin, it is a very lovely oriental with a kink of leather. I am totally in love with this. It is definately bottle worthy!
At night, I tested the Comme des Garcons 888, it is not absurd like some of the other . common CdG creations. It has a minty opening with a bit of herbal woodsy undertone. I find it very wearable.
Spent last evening sniffing from wrist to forearm and back again on both arms - sampling marine scents (reported on yesterday's SotD.) Got up this morning - looked at my modest collection and pounced on
Azuree Soleil Eau Fraiche Skinscent
and said to self, "Self - what's with the sampling? You got it!"

Joining the fuzzyhead crew as the engagement party of last night took its toll.
Still reliving some of my conversation with Chaya in my head.
To start the day we are taking the poodles for their bath and a haircut, not their favorite activity.
So for that activity I am wearing:
Beth Terry Creative Universe Mare
This is my Saturday work scent it is light and lovely on me.
Hope everyone has a great Saturday.

Feeling 90% today and have selected the not-too-anything Bel Respiro for a comfortable fit whilst I traipse around town: P.O., buying a mattress pad for our brand new queen-size bed (dog sleeps with us and things had gotten absurdly uncomfortable on the full-size bed.
Beautiful weekend wishes to all.
Nothing in the morning/arvo :O. I woke up really late, even slept through a plumber fixing our shower (regrouting and everything!) Had a long soak in a bubble bath this evening which I scented with fragrance oils - violet, ylang ylang and a bit of patchouli. Left me smelling pretty good but I sprayed FCUK Her rather lavishly over it. Much prettier than it's name, kinda boring though.
Loving you all, and busy as all HELL.
At work !
Giving chemo, doing end-of-life palliative care, and constant 'breastfeeding' of a 22 yo girl with conversion hysteria, brain tumor, and multiple psych issues, on seizure monitoring....
Other than THAT, I'm just picking my bum, LOL...
Thank God, I'm pretty good at this]
Wish I were washing poodles !
Just got back from a good friend's 21st. It was tons of fun and very entertaining! He even had slushie machines with alcoholic slushies! I've got a terrible sweet tooth (in EVERYTHING, not just fragrance!) so maybe went a teeeensy bit overboard on the alcoholic slushies. Oh, and before the party the man at the bottle shop gave me a discount. I must have been looking hot haha.
Anyway! A day spent packing away things to take back with me to the student residence at University tomorrow, and then getting ready for the party. No fragrance for earlier in the day, but I wore SL Un Bois Vanille for the party. Yum yum!
I just got back from taking my 3rd (and hopefully final, if I pass) Virginia teaching exam. I feel like I've been through the wringer - sheesh! My brain cells are ossifying with age, I just know it. That test was hard! I'm wearing a tiny bit of Aqua Allegoria Figue-Iris this morning, but an afternoon of mad sampling is in order to reward myself.
Ubu - Lol @ your description of county fair demolition derby attendees. Good place to people watch I imagine. See any 5-year olds with mohawks?
SMM - My dog went to the groomer on Thursday - she's still giving me the cold shoulder over it.
Have a great weekend, everybody!
What with testing new fragrances, etc., I have not worn Coco Mademoiselle in ages. So that's what I'm wearing today, running some errands, going to see newborn premature baby girl twins (they weighed 2 lbs. but are doing well) born to my dh's cousin on Wednesday, then Mom's 92nd birthday party!
Decided today would be sampling day. Showered and now wearing BPAL's Rose Cross.
Again, courtesy of ScentMother ComDiva.
Rose and Frankinscence. I think there's a hint of leather in here to. The top notes on this thing are to die for!
The more I test, the more I find I prefer my roses spicy, sweet and just a bit dirty.
Oh....Rose Cross is a beautiful fragrance. Enjoy it sakecat!
Chaya...emmm...You have got to call me & explain this "breastfeeding" thingie. You've had some errr "interesting" patients but I never, ever heard you mention this one before.
My SOTD is FRACAS parfum, the only tuberose I adore.
