    I just sprayed on some SL Sa Majeste and I'm not really loving it....too much powder with this rose for this nose. Expelled to the swap list!

    Exquisitely Me, congratulations! Way to go, girl! I will take the filled one and you folks, please do not look, because it might .... hmmmmmm...... explode?

    Yay for LeeSee! And many more!

    Scent triplet (?) with Dimples and pofox in Jicky today. I wore it yesterday from a sample and after I put on Nivea lotion this morning I thought they sort of matched. Not a perfect match, but they smell perfectly wonderful on together! Now my sample is all but gone and I will have to figure out if I want a whole bottle or a decant or just another sample, perhaps of the edp...

    Congratulations Exquisitely Me! That is wonderful news!
    Also, nice job Leesee- 1000 is really cool!

    Lessa, I was going to post that quote from Blazing Saddles but since I was wearing a rose scent, I (duh) went with the rose quote.

    Mel Brooks cracks me up.

    Ever since I made the Chamade "roll in zee hay" connection I keep finding perfume & Mel Brooks ...what would you call it "hook ups". I don't know. Maybe I'm inhaling too much bug spray from spraying my roses.

    Hi all. Congratulations to some and happy days to everyone!

    Today's SOTD is my first test of Montale Royal Aoud.



    In the reviews, much has been said about the subtle differences between the Montale Aouds. If I had to describe this one, it would be a "fresh" oud.

    You know that mix of citrus on top and inoffensive leather in the base that's the formula for hundreds of work-safe men's designer frags? (Think Gucci by Gucci pour Homme, Vera Wang, L'Homme, Boss Pure, etc.) This is basically that with oud.

    There's a little rose, but not enough to scare off men who are worried about that. Yes, the opening is weird, like all the Montale ouds, but the main point of this seems to be a kind of pleasant fresh citrus with a bit of medicinal notes from the oud.

    The base smells to me like blackberry jam, but with a little mold (hey, it's got oud in it - if you want completely safe, don't wear oud...).

    This is quite nice, and even work-safe if you don't over-apply. I'm actually quite amazed that Montale made this work.
    Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??

    I so love reading about everybody's day, whether adventurous, monotonous, joyous, or sedate. It comforts me to know everyone is out there doing their thing and doing fine.

    Welcome Darwinia!

    exquisitely me, WONDERFUL NEWS! DD is lucky to have you, and I knew it was only a matter of time before someone snatched you up (besides Daniel)!

    Congrats to you too Inees! You've been working hard for just ages now and I'm glad it's paying off.

    Leesee, I'll join the squad-- "Yay for Leesee!"

    Une Zeste des Rose for me today. Appropriate as it's sunny and gorgeous outside, and I've been pruning the roses.

    I'm still around, Haunani. My work schedule became insane, and I have virtually no free time anymore. I only sleep about 5 hours per night, and often have to work weekends. But I still peek in at BN occasionally to see what's going on ... and I wore Brezza di Mare three days ago. Today I'm wearing Armani Attitude.

    Congratulations Leesee

    I can't wait to read a full report on the Roja Dove meeting.

    I was too sick to wear anything yesterday. I probably slept most of the day. I was going to go to work in the afternoon, but DH did not let me. I was running a fever (101.9). Today I am much better.
    I wore SL Louve, but could barely smell it.

    I am glad the weekend is almost here.

    Twolf, thanks for the get-well wishes!

    Congrats, Lessa. And, ChantillyLace, I love the pug! Does he/she snore like my long departed Peggy Sue? (I love Buddy Holly) I just discovered Habanita, so that is my scent for today. It has everything but the kitchen sink in there and it really intrigues me.

    I adore Louve! It's one of my go-tos when I don't know what else to wear/do. Such a shame you couldn't smell it but hopefully you'll feel even better tomorrow than today so you can enjoy your aroma again

    This morning I posted that I was wearing Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare and that I knew that I would still be able to smell it in the late afternoon. Well!

    Exactly 13 hours after I applied the fragrance (and recalling that I just applied one spritz) my husband caught a whiff of it and said, "Mmmm, that smells good, what is it?"

    Now that is longevity!

    Astaroth, it's great to see you! And Rogalal, I'm glad you're posting in this thread. I read your comments with interest.

    I enjoyed the Sakecat/BlackCat photo. What fun it must have been to get together!

    It's been a long day here. I woke up with an unseasonable craving for Safran Troublant. I am going to bed with an extra spritz of same. Good night, special folks!

    You have SUCH an awesome knack for finding those comparisons; from now on whenever something is doing my head in, I need to a) take you with me, b) send you a sample, or c) learn to channel your thoughts
