Yet another rainy day here in England! I shall wear the very understated,
under-rated gem that is Bulgari Omnia. I put this on last night, after using a
new "dead sea salt" exfoliator and Palmer's Cocao Body Lotion and the
difference it made having silky, soft skin was amazing! There were still vestiges of it
I'm wearing Paris edt by YSL. It is light and glowing on this dark and wet day.
Sestra, honey !
I missed you !
Wearing Liz's magnificent Underworld.
It doesn't get too much better than this, folks.
Warm, earthy, spicy, deep.
Off to work, and loving you all !
Nahema (Guerlain) spritzed over the lingering rests of Organza Indecence (Givenchy) from last night. They do combine well!
Sestra! Good to see you!
Sotd is Guerlain Attrape Coeur:
notes: rose, violet, iris, amber, vanilla, sandalwood
Achingly beautiful, aptly named.
Have a wonderful day, everyone.

Happy Tuesday all.
Nice to see Sestra back.
Trying another Neil Morris sample today from ComDiva as I'm still in my incense craving mode thought I'd try:
Neil Morris Skincense
This is a lot of fun it reminds me of every head shop I walked in during the 70's. I'm not sure I want a bottle of this but it's going to be fun to have on today and it will be fun to get this sample out in the future.

Love's True Bluish Light this morning - mmmm so delicious in the cold weather! Now wearing Guess Woman as SotE for the first time in months - it's changed on my skin, smells somewhat peppery. I noticed that with YSL Baby Doll Paris after not wearing it for awhile too
Good morning everybody. Today is a cloudy day and it seems autumn isn't far away.I love Autumn,so that actually makes me happy I'm craving roses today,so will join Tigresse in Nahema today.Now I'm off to buy all the new books I need for the studies this autumn.Hope you all have a great day!
Finally I'm getting Angel. (Molto graz' to Ubu for the adorable little sample of the Extrait!!) Right away I got the exotic blast of patchouli and sandalwood with a melony underpinning. No chocolate. And only after about twenty minutes the hint of vanilla. Scurried over to The Directory to see what was wrong - was certain this was broadcast as a gourmand. Relieved to see mine is not the only bod that does not bring out the sweetness..
Angel is certainly potent - think I'll have to live with it a little longer to have an opinion....

A lovely day here today. Wearing just a tiny bit of Parfum de Therese.
I'm simplifying my life. For Sale Thread (some niche, some designer):
Up early today. My, everybody is smelling wonderful today!
I'm sampling a lily scent by Commes des Garçons ( Quarry!). It starts off with a lovely, pure lily of the valley, then sojourns into further floral and green territory. I smell cannabis. Can that be possible? It must be the mingling odors of coffee and this perfume that gives me that impression.
Have good one!

Hey Sestra! Where you been?
It's widdling down here, so I'm giving up for now on 'tropical' week. I couldn't face frangipani in the rain. Too sad, somehow.
So I'm going with Elizabeth Arden's Blue Grass. Herbal, refreshing, slightly salty, but warm too with a musky sandalwood bottom (so I read). Should be perfect for a trip to *shudder* IKEA.
Ines, you made my heart sink just a little when you mentioned autumn being on the way, but I've cheered up with the thought that here in Switzerland, summer lasts a little longer than I'm used to - often right into October.
Hope you all have a lovely day.

It's Alexander McQueen's Kingdom for me today ... and I'm distressed to report that it's not working out.
Perhaps TMI here, folks, but on me it smells like ... unwashed 'nether regions'.

I am wearing Ava Luxe's Angel Face from a sample. A bit too powdery for me, but the musk is always nice.
I insisted on wearing Hypnotic Poison. Why oh why? I like the bitter almond opening, after that it suffocates me with it's heady, cloying, powdery sweet sillage. I swear I applied only a smidgen and it' s still choking me up. Let the end of the day come soon so I can wash this monster off already!
