    Good morning Riannon! How good you must smell today.

    I'm unscented today because I proparbly will be in the sun.

    This is such a good-looking thread already! I love the photos and the Shalimar looks stunning. Have a good day in the sun, Novis!

    I have started out sampling Delrae Eau Illuminee but sadly abandonned it when the opening notes became more than my pre-tea head could take. Next to try is PdR Diabolo Rose. It's going to be a gorgeous day today, but lots of housework to get through before I can enjoy it! Have a lovely Sunday, all.

    Good morning, ladies! Have you noticed Ms Q's new "Pooped Out" avatar with a cocktail on the tummy? Sounds like she is a very deserving candidate after all the work she and hubby did in the garden. Also, RHM, please post some of the pictures of your roses if you would please? (We need to open up a new and ongoing thread in the OT, perhaps, something like "Green Thumb Corner" -- to brag about our achievements as far as flowers, herbs, fruit, veggies and whatever else we might grow, with either plain texts or photos, how's this for an idea?)

    Going to work in a couple of hours. Most probably in 10 Corso Como. Have a nice and sunny Sunday, the last day of calendar spring!

    Amorito this morning, this evening I gave into curiosity inspired by the trailer park hooker thread. Bandit + Bvlgari Black + Jillsy's skin = warm leather + rubber + smooth skin kinda musk + tiny bit of vanilla. Interesting, the Black softens the harsh Bandit. Methinks me likey!

    Dolce & Gabbana Feminine, from a huge decant sent to me ages ago by Musse, my fairy scent-godmother. It's a floral/white musk that I can actually wear.

    Hope everyone has a good day!

    Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, layered with a bit of vanilla body oil to mellow the first few hours out of respect to my overactive allergies.

    Dmitri...I can't wait until my sample of Amethyst arrives! I have a feel it's really going to get along well with the hot, hot weather we're having here.

    Big conference week for me this week. Both near home.
    I'm the "official conference blogger" at one of them.

    If you all are curious about what I am up to - here is the link to my "professional" blog.

    Oh - and I'm starting a CrossFit class too! Combination of bar gymnastics, olympic weightlifting, bootcamp and torture. Had to do SOMETHING to get motivated to work out again.

    Aieeeeeeee!!!!!

    It all starts today. So I may be quiet on the boards this week.

    Wordbird - Glad the surgery went well. Remember to take it easy!

    Satellite Padapra.....whatever... still a beautiful woody scent.

    Have a great week y'all!

    :wave:sakecat22! Hooray for crossfit! I started with a class like this in January of 2008, and now I'm dedicated to good health and fitness! My first class, the instructor said 'okay team, let's start out with 150 squats'. I started laughing, thinking it was a joke... it was no joke! My body felt paralyzed with siezed up muscles for the first 2 weeks, but after that it's just the good sore - when you've worked your body well. So, no matter what happens, try to give it at least a month, you won't regret it! My dad always says "It's better to wear away than rust away"! True.

    kbe - you'll be glad when it's done!

    At noon is my sons U10 soccer tournament game, I'll be wearing a bit of sunscreen & some Myrrhe-Made Blossom (my own creation!) Happy day everyone!

    Hebe, I tried Diabolo rose yesterday. Loved it. Very light and pretty. The mint is used effectively. Very nice. FBW I think. I was also surprised to enjoy Praline Rose so much as I'm rebelling against the trend that all perfume must smell like candy. I couldn't help it though, I liked it.

    I think I'm wearing Lush Karma today, but I may change my mind by the time the spraying starts.

    Or Oh!!!! Chanel 19. That sounds cool and wonderful.
    There is a singular joy in the experience of receiving perfume by mail. It is one of life's great little pleasures - one that more should have the pleasure of knowing.

    Oh yes debbborra, I am still considering buying Diabolo Rose. Of all the Rosines that one was my favorite. I find it whimsical.

    Today I'm wearing Coty Muguet des Bois parfum. The remnants of a small, older bottle.

    LezNez Manoumalia, which doesnt really match what is a sunny, fresh, windy early summer day here in Montreal, but which I am enjoying all the same.

    I was just coming on to update! I tried Diabolo Rose on one wrist and Angeliques sous la Pluie on the other. I could't get on with the Angeliques, but I loved the Diabolo Rose. So fresh and pretty and such a gorgeous rose. I adored it. It's going back on as soon as the sunblock comes off.

    A little bit late, but happy Sunday to all of you. :wave:

    I'm in L'Artisan Parfumeur Mure et Musc for the last day of a discovery week of this house.
    Quite far from what I normally enjoy, but a pleasant, uncomplicated fragrance by all means. And it has a little bit more staying power than most L'Artisans.
