I haven't made up my mind yet... Two options: TDC Osmanthus or L' Eau d'Hiver. I'm celebrating my son's 18th birthday today!
Guerlain's L'heure bleue - I'm quite tired, don't feel really awake and ready for the world outside.
Alba, congratulations with your son.
I'm in Bvlgari Pour Femme this morning. Have a nice day!

Good morning folks For this beautiful day there was no doubt that Feminite du bois would be my choice for today.Have a nice friday everybody!
I'm going to the hospital for a neck x-ray and don't want to wear anything overpowering - or any of my favourites either (smell associations with hospitals ruin favourite perfumes, you know). Sooooo, I'm going for the safe, fresh & soapy/shower gel-y Lacoste pour femme.
More Sl sampling for me today and I did enjoy Chergui after the topnotes had faded.
Aqua Allegoria Flora Nerolia. I relish the relaxing, uplifting aura
of this wonderful scent - petitgrain, neroli, jasmine, orange blossom
and incense. This is one of Jean-Paul Guerlain's finest and I love it
Birthday greetings to your son, Alba!
Nukapai, good luck with those x-rays dear.
Sotd is Caron Coup de Fouet. With apologies to Devo: "Crack that whip!"
Have a wonderful day, everyone.
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
EAU D'ORANGE VERTE for this pleasant sunny weather .
"Perfume is the dream that carries me."
There is always the sky to look at
Happy son's birthday to Alba (who will smell fantastic whichever of her choices she goes with!), and Nukapai, hope the x-ray is as easy as possible and without nasty smell associations!
Everyone's smelling so good today...
Today is my last day of work at my long-held (13 years!) place of employment, and I am going to smell gorgeous and calm my jittery nerves in Serge Lutens Encens et Lavande.
I'm taking two weeks off prior to starting the new job, and will likely be a sporadic poster these next few days. Must remember deep breathing...
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Bulgari pour femme for this crisp but sunny Friday.
Enjoy your day, all! :bounce:
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
I'm on my way to a doctor's appointment. It has taken me over three months to get in to see this rheumatologist, and I will admit to you guys that I'm feeling a bit nervous. I'm wearing my old friend, Angel.
I've trademarked the color bleu
Alba! Happy B-day to your son!!!
shadesofbleu my dear best of luck
at the appointment today!!!
And best of luck Nukapai too!
My appointment with the osteopath yesterday
was quite uneventful, but I suppose that's how
it was supposed to go? Not sure. Hope it helps!
Another more or less sleepless night, and
another day we're expecting thunder-showers.
We've broken all records for this year already
and it's only mid-August!
Ahhh and my SotD
Serge Lutens • Santal Blanc,
I cannot quite reason why I crave it
so much today but it's simply sublime.

ComDiva - Wow! This has been a very eventful week! I hope they take you out someplace nice for the going away lunch.
To those having to venture into the healthcare system today (whether as staff or patient) - postitive vibes!
SotD - Vero Profumo, Rubj.
A super duper pretty orange blossom/jasmine creature with magnificently large sillage and enough "something" to not suffocate in the meantime. The most traditionally pretty of her 3 works.

A gorgeous late-summer day here in the mid 80s and low humidity. Perfect weather for my friends from PA who will be spending the weekend.
Congrats to the Birthday Boy and special huzzahs and frantic waves to The Diva on her last day of servitude. Hope everyone's aches and pains are relieved - healing energy flowing to you all.
For me - an all-time fave...the shimmery.....
...rates five *s in The Guide and ten from me. According to Turin, Maurice Roucel (of whom I am a GREAT fan) was "uncharacteristically positive" about this "kaleidoscopic floral"...totally luscious.

Mira Bai--old friend is really scratching my itch today. Ahhhhhh.
Be well, my fragrant electronic family. Nukapai, nothing serious, I hope? Shades, Agent, I'd heal you with my touch if those god-like powers I requested would just come through.
Can you imagine how lucky ComDiva's future new co-workers are gonna be to have her in their midst? Envy! (BTW, still snickering inappropriately at your telling of the flying dog story.)
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
TGIF! I can't decide on a SotD yet. We're going to close on our house today, and moving in over the weekend. I won't have internet service again until Sunday evening (Verizon FiOS, yay!). So, see you then!
I hope everybody has a wonderfully fragrance day and weekend!
Oops forgot to post yesters. Happy belated anniversary Tigrushka!
I tested Rasa Extreme yesterday. Whooooa, no likey! Scary! Somehow it's weirdly like defecation and roses. Although I think of it as education for my nose - I've been wondering what civet smells like exactly.
So I scrubbed it off and applied L'Occitane Ambre.
Today I took a break from sampling and wore Cinema Festival d'Ete for uni in the morning and then went to the cinema (to see The Strangers) in the early afternoon. The movie kinda creeped me out
Good luck with the doctor Shadesofbleu!! I'm sure you will be fine, plus you smell gorgeous! *Sending healing vibes to Nukapai (and anyone else who may need them!)*

Vettiveru (Series 4: Cologne) by Comme des Garcons
Raining buckets here. In Laura Biagiotti Venezia.
Fracas although I put it on about an half-hour ago I can't smell a thing. . . hmmmmmm
"While the king is at his table, my perfume fills the air with its fragrance." SoS 1:12
So I made my top 4 list of perfumes, I want to get 2-3 bottles ( and I say I but someone else is going to the States and he was kindly asked by me to go to that and that shop on that street and get 2 or 3 of this list) and many of them are SL bottles. But on pictures it looks like the bottles do not have a spray.
Do any of you ladies know if the Sl bottles come with a spray? If not what are good ways to apply? Decant into a spray bottle maybe?
Surprisingly Datura Noir made it on the list, I´m thinking I got a atomisers that contained some other perfume still so that the first application was horrible but the others were better.
Versus by Versace
