    Well, Twolf, given that I will be working from home this afternoon... yes

    Probably going to get worky stuff out of the way first so I don't have anything to worry about.

    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!!!!!

    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!"

    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:

    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.

    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.

    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?

    What with testing new fragrances, etc., I have not worn Coco Mademoiselle in ages.

    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.

    Today I am inspired to wear:

    Parfumerie Generale L'Oiseau de Nuit (from a sample)

    It is my first full wearing after sampling it one evening last week. On first application, it is sweet but not cloying--sort of like a high-end confection (merengue, maybe?). At the same time, it is leathery, a little smoky-incensy, and a bit dry. The dryness reminds me of Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe and also Tauer's L'Air du Desert Morocain.

    It seems to have alot going for it. Only problems--the longevity is really not so great, and the price is high! It really lost its oomph about 4 hours later, and I applied liberally from a dabber tester. Drydown is a very close, sweet skin scent, probably a sweet musk.

    EDIT: I keep thinking that this smells familiar, like something I have tested before, and I think I know what it is--Estee Lauder Pleasures Delight. I will do a comparison soon and give my report! Certainly the PG is very upscale, probably with expensive ingredients. But that sweet and dry sensation I get--I am pretty sure it is similar to the EL, at least in the beginning stages.

    Nukapai - what a great blog!!

    Quarry - my Kids bought a king size for the same reason. They've got their Chesapeake Lab, plus the cat and (occasionally) TWMAG!! (Glad you're feeling better.)

    Chaya - your halo's waiting. Like Tovah said - you're an inspiration.

    {I am tiptoeing here so's not to rattle you guys with hangovers!!)

    Lilybelle - bravo on the exams. And your puppy will get over the sulks. Eventually.

    As for me - the postman brought a delightful little packet - wrapped in leopard print tissue and holding smellicious treasures! The upshot of which I am granted my wish to re-sample Angel (the extrait) without putting out coin!! Oddly I get roses - and something sharp (maybe bergamot) and a bit of skank. But no chocolate - and no vanilla. I'm weird.

    Manymany thanx Ubu - you da bomb!!

    One hundred and fr***ing eight degrees outside today, had to be Imperial Opoponax for the evening.

    Musse, looking at your new avatar I was thinking about shadesofbleu, do not even know why.

    Mr.T was tinkering (tinks, nothing personal, OK?) with the leaking washer today following his infamous motto "If it is not broken, fix it till it is" and now, guess what? Right, no washer. I have nothing else but just dream of how white my nail tips are going to be until the second week of August (end of billing period on the Credit Card).

    LOL!!! That is Mr. Musse´s motto, too...

    I visited a friend this evening, and noticed that she smelled soo good (she usually never wears perfume), and when I asked her what she was wearing, she told me it was "someting from a tiny blue bottle", and insisted that she had gotten it from me a couple of years back. I had no idea what it could be, but when she showed me the bottle, it turned out to be a mini of Beyond Paradise.
    Once back home again, I immediately logged into my Fragrancex account and placed an order on 1 oz.
    It´s so easy; log in, find frag, place order, log out. Done in less than five min.
    I cannot afford buying more frags!!!
