    Dipping into a collection of fruities sent by Musse, I'm wearing Britney Spears Believe -- stunned to find it pretty darn pleasant for this ilk.

    I hear you! Some awful no-sense-of-hygiene-whatsoever-guy has moved into the flat next to us. We share a hallway. I swear, he lives ENTIRELY on curry and pot noodles and NEVER CLEANS. He sometimes leaves dirty socks and trainers outside his door. The hallway now reeks. We've got to sell this place soon; I'm plotting various things from burning wax tarts to DDT before people come to view the property.

    I've been wearing Lush's Gorgeous face moisturiser overnight and the smell of orange blossom seems to be everywhere. This morning I reached for Dior's Escale à Portofino and how lovely and refreshing it was!

    Spent the whole day gardening couple of days ago and the things I've planted, fed and pruned are already lifting their heads up and doing well. Lots of new blooms and brightness out there! Somehow Escale is going well with the gardening. I feel that my grandmother may have had some kind of smell-alike cologne that she must have worn at our summer house. (She did enjoy a bit of 4711, Blue Grass and Oscar de la Renta).

    Hi all!

    Today I'm trying my first test of a Parfumerie Generale, their semi-new Louanges Profanes.



    This one started out pretty odd, but got nice.

    The opening smelled like menthol and something vaguely aquatic - the closest thing I could compare it to are those big blue sore throat lozenges, or maybe Aim gel toothpaste.

    After about an hour, a strong baby powder came in over the weirdness, eventually bringing the blue menthol to an end.

    The menthol strangeness was replaced by a peppery bread note, still under the heavy powder.

    Eventually, the pepper subsided and some light florals came in.

    For the last few hours, this has basically smelled like L'Heure Bleue with powder on top and a bit of flowers peeking through the powdery haze (by the way, though this isn't really my style, this part smells beautiful...)

    Recommended for L'Heure Bleue fans who want something more powdery and feminine, who are willing to wait through an hour of completely unrelated and strangely masculine topnotes...

    Received some new Guerlain samples, so switched this week to a Guerlain sampling week (sorry, Ava Luxe!). Wore Parure in the morning, and switched to EL Amber Ylang Ylang in the afternoon.

    New Yorkers (and Connecticutians, etc.), hope that you will be able to meet me later in June for some sniffing: http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t-229621

    Happy birthday to fellow Gemini Mr. Haunani, and congrats as well!

    SotD: Vanilla Galante ( to Mrs. Haunani). Very interesting so far. Like most, I get only the slightest hint of vanilla. Instead, I get mostly lily, a bit of salt, just a touch of ylang (no banana here), and a note that I identify with cucumber seeds (also present, albeit more strongly, in Apres le Mousson). This one will bear several tests before I can make up my mind.

    Burberry for Women today. Might add some Dior Homme later!

    Update: I did indeed try on some Dior Homme. It's not really that similar to the Burberry. It is very powdery and feminine though! Too girly for me, which is odd for something calling itself "homme"!

    I hear ya, ChantillyLace. It has been hot as blazes in my corner of our state. We had high winds today so that helps a little, but not enough.

    SotA: FM Une Rose, thanks again to the lovely Haunani.

    I'm in love! At first, I thought, hmmm, rose soliflore, kinda like Serge's. Then the "winey dregs" kicked in. Plus a little mushroom/truffle vibe. Might have to look into a split for this one.

    OK, I hope I don't get a slap for corrupting one fragrance or the other...but...

    A couple of hours ago, I tired of the OJ Frangipani that I started the day with...so I used what I had in the office (alcohol, baby wipes, etc.) to rub off what I could...and then dabbed on a bit of C&S Rose that I had handy in my purse.

    You know - the C&S Rose over the OJ (not completely removed!) is weird but quite nice! I'm becoming quite enamored of what I think is patchouli "done up" with florals.

    Weird but quite nice - some people describe me like that, too! LOL

    Back to work...

    I started the morning with Bvlgari au the Vert and, unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have much staying power on me. When I got in from work, I went with Dammuso by Profumi di Pantelleria...which isn't sticking around all that well, either. I wonder if the humidity is wreaking havoc?

    Good evening all, sorry I am late to the fragrance party, mama was in rare form today; I could use a glass of cognac, maybe 2.

    Wordie, you and the family smell lucious, all in some of my favorite yummies.

    Chaya love, no worries, J is a wonderfully responsible mensch. Give yourself credit for raising that boy right, he had a nice time I am sure and a safe one also.

    Happy birthday to Mr Haunani and a wonderful retirement for you both to enjoy.

    I started the day in Charles Jourdan Votre

    I am now finishing the day in Fragonard Emilie



    Love and hugs for all
