    Haven't gone to bed just yet, but I am thinking I will probably be wearing Le Temps d'Une Fete for the third day in a row. Good morning and good night!

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

    Poor Lian...I had that same day yesterday. Today I am off to ACLS class (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) wearing Guerlain Vol de Nuit Evasion ( brought back to me by my friend from her trip abroad) I think it is very lovely.

    Today I'm wearing the perfume I found this week in a perfumery in Balzano in Northern Italy, one of my holy grail scents, discontinued of course, that I'd found impossible to source on the internet. So there I was browsing in this old perfumery in a small but prosperous town full of regular perfumeries overflowing with all the latest designer frags, when I saw this sitting behind the glass of a locked cupboard in a dusty corner of a cramped room: -

    Mystere de Rochas 15ml pure parfum, sealed and wrapped in its original box.

    LOL, you made me do a double take! I think we can all relate, Lian.

    This calls for Chanel no. 5 parfum AND Chanel no. 5 edt layered just so!

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."

    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

    Sestra Honey!! What a find!! Mystere is one rully great frag (In My Never-Humble-Opinion) Wear it in good health!!

    Oh jeeze. I thought it was plain old London and that's what I got a sample of. Oh well - I tried.

    London is a pretty floral by Laudamiel - gardenias and tiare and jasmine and peony with a creamy woodsy heart. I'm enjoying it but it won't take the place of Brit Red for me.

    So all the boys smell the same today, eh?
    Nice thought.

    I'm in Dior's Dolce Vita, since I found a little bottle in a shop yesterday. I thought they'd discontinued it and was mourning the fact that I only have a mini, then I saw this and had enough of the grocery money left to buy it. (God I hope my husband doesn't see this!)

    To me, Dolce Vita is very much like its big sister Feminite du Bois (also a Pierre Bourdon, though perfected by Chris Sheldrake). But where FdB is a stunningly simple pounding bass riff, DV adds a jaunty melody on top. Dare I say I like it even better? Or are my plebeian roots showing?

    Hope you all have a lovely day.

    Nothing wrong with being a little early Lian! In fact, over here there's less than 80min left of Wednesday anyway! Hugs for having one of those days though! Monday was a bit like that. Since then I've introduced myself to coffee - hence being extremely talkative today. I can see this'll being a new addiction.

    Anyway today I wore EL Sensuous (thanks tdi!). Me likey, probably not FBW though. This evening I'm in Fidji... mmmm so gorgeous *BN salute*

    Have a great day everyone

    Edit: Wordbird, I heard it was discontinued too. Isn't over here but that's not saying much. In fact I've seen giftsets of Dolce Vita for the Christmas season. Please let us know if you do find out whether it is discontinued or not!!

    Thank you, TTTL. Only fellow perfumistas would understand that moment where time stands still as the holy grail comes into vision. I wanted to share it with BNers on the day, but although I could login I couldn't view the BN pages properly via my mobile phone. It's good to back.

    Everyone smells so good today! I'm trying out my new gift with purchase mini of Yves Rocher's Iris Noir. I bought a full bottle of Rose Absolute edp but maybe I should have bought this instead. It's very pleasant, especially as it dries down and the fruitiness up top settles down. I think I smell violets, but they're not listed. I think there is some kind of relationship between iris/orris/violet ingredients, but I don't know the particulars yet. This is a friendly sort of violet/iris scent.

    Lian, I was wondering how I'd lost a day! But I could do that. So I opened this thread to see what I'd worn on Wednesday. Don't feel bad, we've all been there. Me, quite often! I know the way well.

    Hope everyone's day/evening is going well.
