    It's so humid it's like soup outside. It might be a thunderstorm kind of day, or the sun might put in an appearance in which case it will be really hot AND humid. Looks like it could go either way. I've drenched myself in a sample of IO Capri by Carthusia, which Quarry sent me a while back. It fits this morning's swamp.

    Have a good Saturday!

    I felt like I was starting take a cold last night and woke this morning feeling a little miserable. Mom is feeling much better today, but sorry that she might've give me her cold. I took some Tylenol (my sinus pressure seems to creep into my teeth and cause pain) and a multivitamin, so I'm sure I'll be right as rain soon.

    I couldn't get inspired about what to wear until I saw 30 Roses in Ambre Soie. That sounds like a good one! Thirty more roses for you, hon. Thanks for the idea!

    Dora, my thoughts are with you and hoping the fire is contained and extinguished soon.

    SOTD is AL China Pearl once again. After a few weeks of scent exploration I find myself grinding to a halt once again. Must be the weather. Or hormones. Or both.

    Take care, all.

    Hi all!

    Today's SOTD is a re-test of Tom Ford Bois Rouge.



    It's fortuitous that I grabbed this one today after testing Guerlain's Bois d/Armenie last night. They share many similarities (luxe sandalwood, rosewood, cedar, and booze) and I have to say that the Guerlain came out waaaaaaay on top. The Tom Ford is more linear, with the parts combining into more of a cohesive whole, which actually makes it come off as a bit more "simple" than the Guerlain's ever-changing complexity. The Ford certainly isn't bad, but it's not amazing...

    Today I'm sampling two vetivers that I'd been wanting to try (hugs to Taolady!). Yes, this is daring for me, sampling two things at once, but I step out occasionally.

    On my left hand is the more complex of the two, CSP Vetyver Haiti. Listed notes (from TPC) are lemon, bergamot, jasmine, ylang ylang, gillyflower; Haitian vetiver, vanilla, and musk. This is a fairly feminine vetiver blend, IMO, and I'm liking it a lot. Like Goutal's vetiver, it does start with a bandaid-like smell that is slightly off-putting. For me, the floral center and the warm vanilla/vetiver base more than make up for the plastic. I looked up gillyflower, BTW, and I think in this case it is dianthus.There is a light clove-y element in this fragrance that is very appealing to my nose.

    My right hand is wearing L'Occitane's Vetyver. This one is more masculine/unisex, I think, than the CSP. I'd describe it as a clean, lightly spicy, fairly straightforward presentation of vetiver. The listed notes (from L'Occitane) are vetyver wood, bergamot, rosemary, cypress and nutmeg. I get the nutmeg (love nutmeg!), for sure, especially as it dries down. I would choose this over the CSP for hot weather, and I would also love it on my husband any old time.

    FUN!

    Haunani, you daring little party-er! Isn't it fun doing these sorts of side-by-side comparisons?

    Dora, you've been through so much lately.....wishing you safety and some relaxation in the near future.

    Came home from work this morning and sprayed on the Bois Farine for bed.

    Am now ready for work again in Creed's Virgin Island Water and Love in White.

    Today's SOTA has been a re-test of Tom Ford Neroli Portofino.



    Nice, sweet neroli with just a pinch of vetiver for extra green that dries down to a petitgrain/orange blossom heart. Perfectly nice, but it's not really moving me. Maybe if I lived somewhere hotter...

    Good evening all.

    First off, a huge (((hug))) and prayers Dora, you have had such a trying week, i hope the next will go better for you and yours'.

    Big hugs for ineespenes and an_oud_girl, i hope you will both be feeling better soon.

    Started out the day in Jardins de Bagatelle by Guerlain, it was perfect for this (once again) hot humid day.
    Tonight, apres le bain, i was in a mood for something "refreshing and sparkling" so i chose Nocturnes by Caron. This is such a Champagne-like scent, all aldehydic and bubbly, tickles the nose, and feels refreshing on.

    Well i hope things will go better for everyone and have a peaceful nights sleep, love and hugs.

    p.s. I am bubbling over with excitement, not because of Nocturnes, but because of next weeks BN get together, which i am so looking forward to.
