    For Sniff 'n' Speak Saturday, the 'Opposite Gender Frag'

    When I was young, I 'borrowed' my fathers fragrance. Somehow that scent became something wonderful on the skin of a sixteen year old girl.
    It was his signature scent.

    When he died, I took the last bottle I gave him with me and there it stayed in a drawer, untouched.
    Maybe I should have chosen something different today but I followed my instinct.

    Combining sniff-and-speak and sampling by -finally- coming around to trying Jicky.
    Very... fuzzy. Well-rounded. Abstract, almost. Can't quite seem to put it in words, so far.

    Oh, Rhiannon !
    How beautiful.

    I'm a-Jicky-in' for SnS.
    It's lovely, and pong-y all at once.
    Hope they don't hate it at work, tee-hee !

    Now I can tell you all, you sweet thangs-
    Mama got a job selling frags for Chanel, as a freelancer !
    Between this and nursing, I'll be full-time employed, and buzzzzzy.

    I will be in the Boston Neiman's, in Cambridge-
    And, with the grace of God- at the Boutique [ where I'd loooooove to sell the pants off of Sycomore...].

    I've never been paid, for all the fun stuff I've done , behind the scenes,. for years-
    Now's my chance; not paid much, mind- but it's a start.

    Make it a good one, my dears !

    Wonderful choice, dear R. I wore it yesterday and think it's probably Guerlain's finest for men (and special women).

    Yay congrats Chaya!!! Chanel is lucky to have you work for them!

    Baking gooey brownies (now dripping with icing - how typical of me... *nom nom*) and wearing BITP Cherish after transferring it from a roll-on to an atomiser. Yummy, sweet, trashy scent - their dupe of Vanilla Bean Noel mixed with strawberry. Some call it sickly sweet but I like it

    Chaya, CONGRATS! that is wonderful news! fun fun fun

    for later, I may end up in Jicky,
    but I have Third Man, Antaeus, (YEOW) Quercus, dregs of the beloved Habit Rouge, .... what to do, what to do?

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Congrats to Chaya!!! Better still - congrats to Chanel for grabbing her!!

    For me, today's S'n'S is a grand excuse to slip into the glorious...

    ...that Mario sicced us on. Five stars in The Guide. "...affable, slightly vulgar, completely unpretentious, and overall just delicious." and "the finest aromatic ever"...this quickly became my near-favoritest fougere. (Fougere Bengale has top spot - am saving it for tonight!)

    Congratulations on the job, Chaya!

    I'm in Un Parfum de Charmes et Feuilles by The Different Company today (one of my, ehem, souvenirs from the Chicago trip... seems silly that I bought a non-US perfume, but at least the other one was from Fresh. ).

    Perhaps the name of this scent contains a hint, but on first whiff, I was utterly charmed by this. For me, it's one of those you want to smell more of and spray liberally. Stunning, green-herbal opening, chypre-style floral and a gorgeous Jasmine note. Mm-mm-mm!

    Hooray Chaya!!!! :bounce::bounce:

    Hopefully, you can parlay that into a full-time gig and start nursing us all with scent!

    Life is too short to not do the things you love. And you are so highly respected within this community I am surprised that this hasn't happened before. All things with time, I guess....

    I'm wearing Calvin Klein's Obsession for Men for the opposite-gender Sniff 'n Speak. It's sweet amber & vanilla - a bit boozy. I think I'll wear it more often. It's a perfect stay indoors rainy day scent.

    Have a good day everybody!

    Yes my ScentSister Uomo is Italian for Man.
    Woo and Hoo for Chaya 1. I am so happy for you I know how much this means to you.
    It's going to be fun to visit an SA who knows what she's talking about.
    I'm still in Minnesota and for today's SnS I"m wearing:

    Tom Ford Black Orchid


    I don't think I understand how they classify scents as male or female. This one feels very unisex to me.

    Guerlain Vetiver for me - one of the few male scents left in my collection after giving a bunch of samples to my brother to try. I hung on to this as it was launched the year I was born, and because I would like to train my nose to appreciate vetiver more!
