    Look, ma! I went over 1,000 posts! I just started here in April, so this is a little embarrassing. But exciting, too. I'm having such a great time here! The people here are the BEST!!! :bounce:

    I'm just going to bed. But I think I'm going to treat myself to a little DANS TES BRAS in the morning.

    Yawn...(rubbing eyes)...good night!

    I'm experimenting today by wearing Cabotine and Ivoire together!
    Both are green so it may work and the Cabotine might just breath
    a bit of warmth into the austere Ivoire.

    VETIVER by FLORIS of LONDON

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Ha, congrats Haunani!
    Jil Sander Sun today. I can pretend...
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Congrats Haunani! The evidence is in - like the rest of us, you are truly obsessive!

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."

    Congrats on 1,000 and your fifth star Haunani. That was quick you must really like us.

    I'm continuing my unintentional week of inexpensive scents in:

    Rochas Lui

    I am a big fan of Rochas Man and am just now starting to try some of the other offerings from Rochas. First up is Michel Almairac's and Amandine Marie's, Rochas Lui. Lui starts off with the ubiquitous citrus note this time represented by neroli but what I like about this top is cedar is right there too. This is reminiscent of Gucci pour Homme but it isn't that deep cedar of pencil shavings. Lui presents a fresher cleaner cedar because of the presence of the neroli and because the neroli is more prominent. The top is also very intense for a top as the depth of the cedar makes for unexpected depth. I wish the top lasted longer because the heart feels so pedestrian on me there is a hint of sweet incense mixed with the cedar but as opposed to elevating the scent it feels like it has been geared down a notch. The base is a pretty nice mix of patchouli and vanilla which gets better over time. This is a scent which has its best moments at the beginning. This is an affordable good scent that I can easily recommend to those on a budget. There are better fragrances out there but you'll pay much more for them.

    Congrats on the posts, Haunani.

    Last night I sampled Dzing and Dzongkha. I wonder if I really like Iris. I thought I liked Iris Poudre when I tried it at the Barney's counter, but she thought the tester was En Passant. I didn't like either of the two (Dzing and Dzongkha.) It wasn't the dung/bandaid note that turned me off but the sweet smell below. I'm sad because I wanted to like them. I will try again in a few weeks.

    I was going to try out the Merchant Loup sample and hope for the best, but that hazelnut somehow reminded me of what I didn't like about Dzing. So, it's L'eau De L'Artisan. It's pretty pretty pretty. Just what I was in the mood for - that and a second cup of coffee.

    I was out the door, smelling pretty when I realized I'm just not feeling up to it today. I'm staying in bed with cramps. It's pretty indulgent. Feeling just bad enough not to feel bad for calling out, but not so bad as to be miserable at home watching tv. Sleeping. Tea and aspirin.

    I'm trying out another one of the Profumo.it fragrances that Quarry sent. This one is called Fablier. I have no idea what's in it, but it smells wonderful - slightly spicy, resiny-incensy & naturally sweet. Just beautiful. Have a good day!

    I have officially lost my review virginity! Yippeeeee!
    I just discovered that some of my reviews have finally posted!!! And one is already in need of a serious update and editing: in honor of my former hate, now love relationship with Eau des Merveilles, I'll be wearing it today! Kindly disregard the review, or read it knowing I will be revising in good time.

    UPDATE: I am in the mood for summer and am sampling Firefly (thank you Quarry!) instead! Mmmmm. Gorgeous drydown.

    L'Artisan La Chasse aux Papillons (sample.)

    The jasmine in this is nice and clean smelling; however, I can tell it is still too much jasmine for my hubby's taste. And while I buy-- and wear-- fragrance for myself, I don't see much point in wearing fragrances that I know he dislikes. (He shows me the same courtesy when choosing frags for himself.)

    Well done on 1000 posts Haunani (Don't worry; I started after you and have already broken 700 ).

    Had the ENT appointment this morning: he reckons I have arthritis of the upper spine/neck, which would explain a lot. Going for an MRI scan in a few weeks just in case (but I understand it is also used as a diagnostic tool in the neck arthritis cases to see what's going on). NOT looking forward to that at all as I am claustrophobic. I will have to just deal with it.

    Kindest Wordbird has sent me some things to sniff and I've got Samsara EDP on one wrist (suitably so, given that I tried the EDT yesterday and was left a bit disappointed). This is more like it. It's softer, rounder, fuller and more like the smell I remember. It has a lovely creamy/woody quality underneath the shrill top notes. It also gives totally different prominence to Jasmine and Ylang.

    On second wrist, SL Borneo 1834. First impressions: I've dug up a large mushroom that's been growing on a patch of deep, black soil in which a wooden (now rotting) treasure chest containing (miraculously still very dry) good, light tobacco is buried. Very interesting. It's turning softer and almost powdery on my skin now, but the mushroomy/earthy note is still very prominent. I'm enjoying this so far, at least as a scent journey.

    Congrats, Haunani !

    (((((((Lian)))))))

    Wound up weaing AL Ambra Tibet yesterday, then Eau Suave for bed.
    As soon as I'm up to a sink bedbath, I'll do YR Rose Absolue.

    Good news: surgery went well.
    Bad news: postop was a mess.

    BP was inexplicably , dangerously high- 200 / 120 ; it wouldn't come down, either.
    Needed IV Labetolol, poor DH was very frightened.
    I stayed very calm and detached- but fully cognizant that I could have had a stroke.
    I was NOT amused, my friends.

    I've had a lot of surgery- but this one is the most painful.
    Oh, well- soon I'll feel better.

    Love to all....
