Another one in Spiritueuse Double Vanille.

SMM, seeing your kiddos makes me miss my own wild poodle. And indeed, some poodles DO run the Iditerod:
SotD: Prada Infusion d'Iris
Another one in Spiritueuse Double Vanille.
Sniff and let sniff.
Today I'm wearing the delicate orris found in Parfum d'Empire
and wonder why it isn't talked more about here?!?
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
Luxuriating in my 2nd sample of L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger 2007...and fantasizing about buying a full bottle.
Today I am wearing Bond no. 9 Nuits de Noho. I smell soooooo goood!!

ScentBro - neat dogs! And they are so well behaved sitting next to Santa.
Started the morning with Ungaro III. Don't know whether my nose is out of whack, my aquatic and soap-magnifying skin got a hold of it or what - but all I got for 30 minutes was astringent, aquatic, soapy horribleness. Had to scrub after 30 minutes (good thing I only put it on my wrists this morning).
Now wearing - Mythos Mixtures, Elixir of Regeneration.
One of the better scents from this line. Decent sillage at the top (a mostly green, slightly fruity floral) - more than would be expected from an oil. The heart has a distinctive dirt note that is quite compelling. The base is a pretty, vaguely musky floral. Interesting evolution. Close-wearing after 2 hours. Lingering after 5 as a skin scent. First one of this line I would consider buying a full bottle of.

Sunny day, but under a winter storm warning for tonight and tomorrow. I chose Vivienne Westwood Boudoir today. This stuff is amazing!
All those photos are shamelessly stolen off the web, cropped, and sometimes adjusted with Photoshop to clean them up. By the way, I assume most people already know this, but anyone is free to just take these images and upload them to their own photo site. For people running Windows, just right-click on the image and choose the "Save Image As..." option, and then save it to your hard drive. And if you don't want to do that, you can just copy my link location to your Clipboard with the "Copy Image Location" option, and then just paste my link into your own posting. I don't mind.
For the second day in a row, I'm wearing R de Capucci.

I'm in the beautiful L'Heure Bleue - Have a great day all
My blog about perfume
I spent the day in Maria Amalia to no great effect. It opened with a lemon sherbert akin to Lux by Mona di Orio, then faded to nothing much. I barely knew I was wearing anything for the rest of the day.
I'm now wearing Ava Luxe's Tunisian Musk. It smells like nice joss sticks, and that's not bad, but I wouldn't want to wear this in public. It's a bit too hippy for me.
I think I've got fragrance fatigue.
SMM, your boys are so handsome! And MJ, eh? I didn't see that coming. I forgot the principle of most good detective noir--"Cherchez la femme." I'm enjoying the reads tremendously.
Well, after being conflicted about the position I was being interviewed for ayesterday nd thinking I might need to turn it down as not a good fit (but being worried about the friend who referred me to the position), I got the call today. They really liked me, but they couldn't accommodate my request for the amount of time off I'd need to make the position work for me. So it worked out perfectly! Sometimes, rejection is a good thing.
SotD: YSL Elle again. This really works well on my skin chemistry, and I adore the cedar note with the dark fruit and florals.
For sale: JL Scherrer parfum (reduced price) and more!

SMM, love the wild poodles on Santa's lap! They have been good boys all year, and I'm sure it took a while to let Santa know what all they wanted. (Cali, the diva dog says "hey!")
It is so rare for me to wear a fragrance twice in one week, but it happened this week! I'm wearing JPG Classique EDP again today.
I've trademarked the color bleu
This is the second day in a row that I am wearing this. That's unusual for me to wear something two days in a row. It just smells soo good.... I think I'll go reapply.
EL ~ Sensuous
Iris Noir - I really like this one, I wish it had more sillage though.
Arabian Wood by Tom Ford (Private Blends) - first time from a sample, thanks Futami
I shall taunt you as second time with Gendarme as SotE.

Heavy rain, demonstrations and bus strike... A wonderful day as you can immagine...
Then my younger daughter ( who still coughs, but the doctor finds nothing ... ) had some "good" news ! A veeery bad mark in the history test after having studied for four hours...and examined my her father! I can't believe it! Anyway...
Sotd: Brulure de Rose
Sote: Tam Dao
Wild poodles gonna drag me away
Wild, wild poodles, pullin' the sleigh...
Sorry, got all overcome there by SMM's lovely lads. I adore the bow ties - a nice nod to the season without getting silly. (Can't find the wry grin smiley - you'll have to imagine it.)
And of course I"m on tenterhooks now to find out what MJ does to our hero in Candlyland! Loving those tales, SMM. Brilliant & fun.
We've been enjoying yet more snow and the family have all been out gleefully sledging and building snowmen today. It's lovely. Utterly idyllic Swiss stuff. With chocolate on top (though not for me as I'm on a diet).
I hope you are all having a good time in the run-up to Xmas. Chaya gave me good advice when I was stressing last week before my visitors arrived: chill out! Very true.
Today I have been chilling out in Chanel No 22. Beautiful white flowers and sparkling aldehydes make me feel the same way I feel when I see snow has fallen. It's a really joyful, uplifting, innocent scent.
Hugs to all of you.

Scent twins with inees in Narciso Rodriguez For Her edt, soooo pretty. Using up the last drops tonight of two samples I thought were already empty - Fleur Oriental and Pink Sugar. I think I might be getting one as a Christmas present if I'm lucky!
It's a Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere day, from a sample. I can finally use my nose again! Sometimes having a cold is just the kind of minor inconvenience that reminds us how lucky we are to be able to do so many things we take for granted: like having the gift of smell. Getting over a cold is very life-affirming, actually.
Wordbird: I love Chanel 22 also. I've worn it recently a couple times and always kick myself for not wearing it more often. It does have a snowy, wintery feel that goes well with scarves. I never seem to pick it up when it's warm out.
