    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
    this morning

    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.

    Andrea!! Sweetheart!! You're ba-a-a-a-ck! (Was beginning to worry...) Welcome home!

    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....

    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.

    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.

    On one arm, Ava Luxe Milk. Top notes came across as cotton candy--my skin must be making this very very sweet. It calmed down, though, although it is still just a bit sweet on me for my taste. I can see why people love this and find it comforting, however.

    On the other arm, I brought out my early 90s mini of Lalique (the discontinued version, by Sophia Grojsman) for the first time in years. It's still going strong, and now I can finally appreciate it. (I used to find it too "perfumy.") Lovely, rich floral. Yummmmm. Why'd they have to go and discontinue it?

    VERY late to the party today... I swear they're getting every possible second out of me at my soon-to-be-former job. UGH!

    Sestra, nice to see you, sweetie!

    Today, wore Cacherel Gloria, courtesy of the glorious tdem1961!

    Notes: Vanilla, Musk, Amaretto, Bittersweet Italian Almond Liquor, Ambergris, Bulgarian Rose, Hibiscus.

    Very, very sweet and vanilla-y on me. I like it, though the drydown has a touch more powder than I usually want. That said, in the stupidly humid, chilly, rainy weather we've been having here lately, a little drying powder note is lovely!

    Okay, back to the salt mines to try to get a huge project mostly off my plate before I leave the job...
