    Sa majesty la rose from serge lutens.

    Lovely rose scent but the first minute makes me sneeze, still smells good though.

    Morning: Profumum Acqua di Sale
    Afternoon: L'Artisan Parfumeur Timbuktu
    Evening: Annick Goutal Ambre Fétiche

    After doing a bit of testing, I can say pretty definitively that storing Acqua di Sale in plastic atomizers introduces an unwanted vinyl note to the fragrance. During the last few times that I've worn it, I've applied it directly from the glass bottle, and the vinyl note is not present.

    Last night I tested the flip side of Kilian's Liaisons Dangereuses, Kilian Cruel Intentions, also from a sample. MUCH more my speed. Will be wearing this one again, and soon!

    Cruel Intentions notes: Bergamot calabria oil, orange blossom oil, violet accord, centifolia rose absolute, agarwood, Indian papyrus oil, gaiacwood oil, Haiti vetiver oil, sandalwood, styrax absolute, castoreum absolute, vanilla absolute, musk.

    This morning, however, with a winter storm warning in effect (they're calling for up to a foot of snow , but I still have to go into work), I wanted something more on the comfort scale, but still with a sexy streak. My choice? Am 1/3 scent twin with Astaroth (does this make us scent cousins today?) in Annick Goutal Ambre Fetiche. Perfect!

    Ambre Fétiche notes include: Frankincense, labdanum, styrax, benzoin, iris, vanilla and leather.

    Have a fabulous Friday, all!

    This one starts off sweet on me with honey and sugar at the top. In the heart tobacco takes the lead with hints of incense underneath. At the base a well-balanced leather slightly counterbalanced with some amber and musk ties it all up.

    Have a Fun-packed Friday everyone.

    Glad to hear from tdi once again!

    Woke up to a world covered in ice...when I took the doggies outside, the ice was so thick they were walking on top of the snow without breaking through once! It's crazy! The poor creatures were so freaked out they couldn't even pee! Schools are on a 2 hour delay, but I suspect they may actually cancel, we'll wait & see.

    Elixir by Penhaligon's (from a sample)



    This scent is hovering very close to holy-grail territory for me. It's a cinnamon/floral that veers into oriental territory with a sharp tangy quality. It's exquisite. Sort of the best of Baie de Genievre and Egoiste combined, but with rose and more intense cinnamon/ notes. Thanks NeoTY26!

    SOTD is an attar from Amouage -- Amanie. No idea about the notes; it was part of a special gift set. Top notes seem very jasminey and orange blossomy. Dry down is exquisite, faded jasmine and orange blossom, maybe some . . . rose?

    I read Riannon's post and went running to ebay looking for the extraordinary Amouage Silver Cristal Femme. $$YIKES!$$ I'll be very thankful when I pick up my Bois d'Armenie tomorrow and put Amouage on the list for next year!

    OMG, petruccijc! That Excada ad looks not safe for work! Were the folks on Madison Avenue wearing or drinking the stuff when they come up with that?!

    Goodness, Lian, I don't know how you stay sane sitting on top of the world in the cold and dark nearly all day. Ines too! Here's looking forward to the winter solstice!

    I won't even complain that it's another cold, rainy, overcast day here. Most of you would laugh at me for thinking 50º is cold! So I'm, er, sweating it out in the rather peculiar Caron Eau de Réglisse today.

    Happy Birthday Tavorna! 21 is a special one indeed!
    "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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Happy 21st Birthday Tavorna, a very special day for you!

    I wore Il Bacio today as an antidote to the darkness and the relentless rain. Fruity and deep without being heavy Il Bacio was its' joyful, bright self all day. This is the ideal pick-me-up scent for a Capricorn to wear in the dead of winter!!!!

    I'm glad there are women indulging in this creation, and that they aren't being scared off by the tar-like leather in it. (This is now one of my favorite Annick Goutal fragrances.) ... And have fun in that Boston snow! When I was younger, I used to ride my bike along Memorial Drive to early morning classes. There's nothing like that howling, bitterly cold wind jumping up off the Charles River to wake you up.

    I always have sympathy for people dealing with the logistical nightmares of snow. But take heart. After The Big One hits out here in Southern California, if I still have an Internet connection, I'll be on Basenotes trolling for my own sympathy.

    Being a demonic spirit, I have a slight advantage in predicting the future.

    Happy happy birthday, o young Tavorna.

    Chaya, so sorry to hear about your foot. I agree that it's no fun having enforced rest, especially for that long. However, the "lemonade" side of this is that you will have lots of time to catch up on reading or other fun things that do not require mobility.

    SotD: Le 3e Homme de Caron (aka The Third Man), first time out of a (vintage?) mini I got on ebay along with a batch of other mini goodies.

    OMG. Hubba hubba. The drydown is just a wee bit masculine on me for my tastes, but I'm getting this to DH stat. I don't know what that irresistibly sexy note is (perhaps some skank?), but this is one hawt frag. (Insert drooling icon here.)
    For sale: JL Scherrer parfum (reduced price) and more!

    Cinq Mondes - Eau Egyptienne, except that I have a very bad cold and can't smell it.

    SotA is Serendipitous layered with AL's Milk (just a little). I smell like chocolate float!
