    Liked Escada Collection so much I wore it again today. Went shopping most of the day so arrived home smelling of many different frags.

    SotE is Fidji from my new bottle. It's not as good as my mother's pre-reformulation bottle but still very nice

    I'm being brave and give Jolie Madame another try. I find this too bitter for me, but since I bought a bottle blind, I am trying to persevere and perhaps grow a little and learn to love it, or at least appreciate it. Not liking it so far though: bitter violets. I'm obviously not sophisticated enough.

    I was re reading this funny article about it by Gene Weingarten:
    http://www.jewishworldreview.com/120...ten123005.php3
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. 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."

    Dora, thanks for the l'eau de parfum #2 Spiritus by Miller et Bertaux, I am testing it today and it is delightful and somewhat abstract. I was scratching my head for words to describe it. It is definately unusual and I would have mistakenly think it is by Comme de Garcons.
    I tried Gucci by Gucci again after lunch. I like the bottle, but thats probably it.

    Wordbird, Jolie Madame came out quite sour on me, too. Then it turned into the scent of pot. Actually, a lot of "green" notes, especially in chypres, do that to me. I guess we can be cretins together.

    Taolady, sending you healing vibes from California!

    Speaking of Taolady, I'm trying Creed Vanisia on one arm. This is a bit schizophrenic on me--one moment I get the best pipe tobacco note ever, then I get something sour. I'm waiting for it to settle down.

    On the other arm is Romeo Gigli. Zzzzzzzzzzz, at least compared to the Vanisia.

    I'm in Pleasures Delight again. I think for October I will wear my frags for three days in a row at least. This will give me a chance to enjoy them for longer than usual. I'm loving Pleasures Delight even more now as it has been deliciously caramelly the past few days. During our so-called 'summertime' PD was more fruity and sparkling. I love that autumn has altered my perception of this fragrance.

    Btw, to all those I owed samples to, they went out, marked as gifts, so hopefully no customs worries!

    I've obviously been bitten by a major nostalgia-bug, but today I simply had to cover myself in the great 80s soapy oriental, Byzance by Rochas. The opening is pure soap; then you get to the floral/oriental part, few hours in, the scent persists as an ambery, soft and slightly sweet skin scent. I re-sprayed twice (!) during the day because I just couldn't get enough. This takes me right back to when I was a teenager and wore hoop earrings, bleached denim dungarees and all the other ridiculous horrors from the era. It's a peculiar scent - it's almost amusing in its audacity and yet somehow, it hangs together perfectly, doesn't apologise for itself and its journey is enchanting and pleasurable to follow and participate in. This works well on my turns-everything-sweet-skin, but on someone with other tendencies it might turn too sharp. Still, if you ever see this anywhere, give it a whirl.
