    Good morning Ines Ah, I thought you would be early. Now, come here and let me sniff you....hmmm, Jicky suits you well.

    Lavender for me as well this early morning, as chosen by Silverbullet.

    Amber and Lavender

    Jo Malone made this for her husband but I really love this fragrance. For the moment I am only wearing the body lotion after using the bath gel. Strong enough for a business meeting. But I will take a small decant with me to touch up.

    Silverbullet, I am pleased with your splendid choice

    Bvlgari Au Thé Rouge - I reach for it a lot. I really should get decided already and either buy a decant of this or Ava Luxe Moroccan Mint Tea... Oh, why can't I have them both?

    Dolce Vita this morning thanks to tdi on the Pick My SotD thread

    Now testing RL Notorious. Smells very familiar but can't place it. Edit: figured it out, reminds me of Coco Mademoiselle!

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    After a bad start (some wierd reaction to the curry my dear husband cooked for us last night!!)
    I am feeling human again and reaching for the very beautiful Ferre by Ferre. This is my favourite
    iris scent and I actually prefer it now to Iris Poudre. It really suits the damp, autumnal feel of the
    weather today.

    me too, need a hug, worked til midnight last night and now off to work in a bit. silly me.
    wearing Vamp, but it's too sweet for me today. she'll have to do.
    I may take a decant of Chant d'aromes or something for later.
    I always carry no. 19 in my purse, too.

    Ghost, Deepest Night? I have a sample of Ghost Deep Night. is there is a difference or is mine a typo? I really like the sample I have and have been nursing it for about a year.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue.

    Yikes! Then you get extra (((((((rtamara)))))))

    Yes, Deep Night and Deepest Night are two different frags. If I'm not mistaken Deepest Night was a limited edition, although I've seen it at a couple UK etailers. Don't think it's sold in the US anymore. I found some carded samps through a UK seller on ebay. I'd never be able to finish an entire bottle, because this is some potent juice. A little goes a long way.

    Happy Monday to all.
    It was a lovely fall weekend here in New England.
    to start the work week I'm in:

    The Different Company Sel de Vetiver

    This a vetiver sans its usual citrus partner. There is a more herbal feel off the top before the quite realistic sel of the title shows up. Really nice scent.

    Trying out Miller et Bertaux Close Your Eyes and....
    Courtesy of Ms. Lian

    She sent this in response to my difficulties with Kenzo Amour. Sadly, this doesn't wear particularly well on me either Kenzo Amour went chemical. Close Your Eyes and went sour, then turned to Play Doh.

    I have a feeling that this type of scent just doesn't like me very much.

    Lian, thank you so much for the lovelies. I am going to pass this one on to another basenoter who may wear this beautifully. An evil scent twin who seems to be able to pull off a lot of the stuff I can't.

    BlackCat - I hope you plan to check some bags when you come to DC.

    Lotsa Guerlains this ayem...and I am jumping right in with the beautiful

    Mahora
    from a sample that one of you divine people sent me. (Organization is not my strongest suit) As a fan of florals - and especially of tuberose - I find this works especially well on me. The tuberose is muted, mellow, and smells closer to the blossoms that come into the flower shop, than do some of the more vocal and higher pitched tuberoses.(Criminelle - Private Collection etc)

    Though only in the fifties at the moment, the temps will climb into the eighties again today - and I'm ready!!

    I am trying Eau de Jatamansi. I liked the Verte Violette and the sublime Fleur d'Oranger better, and found them more feminine. But this is actually lasting a bit longer, and that is nice.

    Moroccan mint tea sounds divine. What does it smell like?

    Oooooooo, oooooo -- ((((((MORE GROUP HUGS!!!!)))))

    Back in town once again, moving slower than I need to, but smelling rather spectacular in a sample of Stephanie de Saint-Aignon Un The Au Sahara.

    Un The Au Sahara notes (via Luckyscent): Green tea and mint bouquet, precious woods, patchouly, amber, spices.
    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
