Shalimar Eau Legere Parfumee by Guerlain
Needed something bright & alive today, since I didn't get enough sleep last night. This does the trick! It also makes me hungry when I wear this, it smells like an artisanal lemon tart.

Erolfa for me today - complete with the body wash. The weather is absolutely perfect.
Ralph Lauren Polo Green. I've avoided this for 20+ years because it was my daily scent during high school. Now I remember why. It does seem to have changed slightly, the top notes seem different, more powdery, but the dry down is still just as good. Truly classic.

Today I'm sampling Parfumerie Generale Iris Taizo. Surprise. I've never experienced a warm iris before - only the cool and somewhat distant types. This one is rich, earthy, and a bit foody, foody first read as chocolate but turns out it's Mexican vanilla.
Lovely, lovely, lovely.
Knize Ten. Still coming to grips with this one.....
Second day sick as a dog with the flu, so nothing for me (not that it would matter,seeing as how I can't smell a thing).
Thanks to a lovely fellow Basenoter, I'm sampling Donna Karan Gold. Lily over amber and a bit of patchoulli. Very nice indeed!

Guerlain's Vetiver for me. The very end of a bottle. I'm teasing small shots out of the broken sprayer these days, and always need to tilt the bottle in the right position to make each spray.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile EdP
Although more violette than iris, especially in the EdP concentration, this is one I've been agonizing about buying. It's warming up in Texas and this is working very well today. The EDP has terrific longevity.
Balmain Amber Gris.
Caron's incomparable Yatagan.
Chanel Pour Monsieur - This was a recent buy for me and I am so so in love with this fragrance
Penhaligon's Racquets Formula
In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
