Bogart Witness as SotD. Like TwoRoads, afternoon football viewing a good probability.

I'm in the mood for amber today... so, what about some Ambre Russe? Perfect for this cool day in South Carolina!

...a Revlon great (for me) Opens slightly citrusy with a vanilla hint, and settles into a beautiful muted tuberose dominated flower heart with undercurrents of spicy musk. No ice in here but wonderfully comforting.

Looking to swap/buy/receive for free () the following samples/decants:
Indult Tihota & Ręve en Cuir

Vetiver pour Elle (5ml decant)
Versace The Dreamer 50ml (1.7oz) BNIB

Tauer's L'air du Desert Marocain once again.
SotE: Guerlain's Derby from an EdT-oldie. This old juice smells almost like gasoline, then softens down to something ... leathery? Soft leather. Herbal leather. A strange marriage. It's both herbal, smoky, leathery and spicy, a sort of minty-cool offspring of the ten years older Parure's pungent mixture of rose, oak moss and leather.
Went to Scentmother's for dinner last night and she spoiled me with decants of which I am wearing two today:
Donna Karan Essence: Labdanum (Left Wrist)
Donna Jaran Essence: Wenge (right wrist)
Both together in the crook of both arms.
Each of them stand alone by themselves just fine but together they just go beyond 1+1.
Labdanum comes off as a floral incense on me and that is unique. The incense is balanced just right so as not to overpower the floral note at the top.
Wenge is a smoky, woody, resinous scent but more subtle than that sounds. This is a lighter feel than yesterday's CdG H&M cedar top note.
Labdanum + Wenge this is where the true beauty lies. Together these two compliment and enhance each other. After layering the two there is a stronger amber note that comes alive in the combination. Upon re-examining my wrists I realize it is there in the Labdanum but lightly. The Wenge when added in somehow sharpens the olfactory focus enough for the amber to move more front and center and combine with the obvious notes from each of the components to create a new and different creature.
A completely beautiful combination. It is going to be hard for me to wear either of these singly because I now know how well they go together.
Have a Serene Saturday everyone.

Moltening, Hyde65, nsamadi and Fraddicted, you all smell particularly delicious to me today. Please let me nuzzle your necks...What a nice, laid-back day!
Still glowing in the warmth of ScentSon SMM and family's dinner visit last night (dear husband decided after the fact that MUSTARD was what was missing from the "white lasagna" he fed everyone -- I assured him the rest of the feast more than made up for the low-complexity of the lasagna) Afraid the poodles have become my adoptive grandchildren, and I am way too young for grandkids, so perhaps they'll become nephews? Anyhow, I love them to bits, as do my kids, albeit with considerably more enthusiasm than the dear doggies are used to.
Continuing my incense kick with a combo of Cdg Ouarzazate & Cdg's H & M fragrance, which I got a taste of thanks to dear ScentSon... VERY distressed that there seem to be no more full bottles available anywhere state-side. I WANT ONE!!!!
Ouazazate has much more spearmint than I expected. It's nice, but missing the white-smoky, woody aspect I was hoping for.
CdG H&M is straightforward and gorgeous. I want a bottle. Now. Please. Anyone?
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
