    Elsewhere I am testing, in one of the last days of being a MishMash, we hope:

    PdN Juste un Reve (rather flat smelling tropical number)

    Nanette Lepore (surprisingly pretty, sweet powdery rose violet scent - not girly as such)

    Jeanne Lanvin (rose version of Omnia Green Jade. Similar airy and "nutty" quality)

    Gosh Musk (straight up musk)

    Molinard de Molinard (big retro floral, slightly Chamade-like at one point, though less so now)

    Les Parfums de Rosine Rose d'Argent (super silvery, metallic rose, spicy and cool)

    Brandy (fresh fruity thing supposedly named after a horse)

    Frapin Esprit de Fleurs (nice crisp floral with alleged champagne note)
    VM - I totally agree- By Kilian perfumes have a little trademark- I can't put my finger on it- it's sort of syrupy in smell - I can recognise By Kilian's anywhere I think .
    Anyway, we smell fab together !

    Today - Prada's Infusion d'Iris.

    This has turned into a craver. When I am looking for something dry and powdery and "irisy" and more than a little "professional" smelling.

    Riannon, my heart aches with ENVY .... that perfume was instant love for me and I devoured my tiny, tiny sample and stared at it with puppydog eyes for days afterwards. Somehow that didn't magically transform it to a full bottle.

    Bond No9 Eau de New York again. Have been insanely busy in the last couple of weeks! And now getting very, very excited about THIS FRIDAY'S MEET!

    Happy belated birthday wishes to Oud Girl, Clemmie and anyone else I may not have been here to congratulate

    Thank you all again for the happy birthday wishes! I'm definitely going to love sampling those Yosh creations over the next week or so. Truly blessed, I am, to have such a thoughtful, wonderful hubby!

    Today is my Mom's last full day here before I put her on a plane back to Florida tomorrow morning. My cold is still with me, so I'm going to toughen up and power thru some fun activities today (shopping, mostly ) with Nyquill (Dayquill dries me out too much), coffee, and Jo Malone Dark Amber & Ginger Lily!

    Hot and muggy days are upon us once again, wearing Chanel Cristalle, double shifts at work, off tomorrow.

    Last night I wore La Mome and was surprised how good it smelled on the pillow.

    Roja Dove for Urban Retreat's Rendez-Vous today.

    It is less than remarkable.

    VM: I'm quite persuaded that the 'nutty' note in Jeanne is madamia.

    Get better from your cold soon An Oud Girl - you sound really happy though which is lovely.

    This evening I am swanning around in Poison Esprit de Parfum . I am getting into a real ' Poison' mood now- it's wonderful that just a drop of this stuff is potent enough to last for hours. Poor hubby thinks it is Hypnotic Poison !

    Hello to all, seems the week is starting out well for everyone, thank goodness. Hope your cold is gone by tomorrow Oud_Girl, but at least you have the yummy scents.

    Dora, i am glad there is some tranquility in your world finally, you needed it.

    Today i still smelt of Boucheron from yesterday, along with Weekend by Burberry (which should have not lasted through the evening shower, nice longevity)...so this evening, after my shower, I wore Vent Vert, not the vintage, but the first of many reformulations. It smells absolutely lovely, even mama keeps asking me what i am wearing.

    Have a pleasant evening all, love and hugs.

    Hi all!

    It's coming! The meet-up is almost here!!!

    Continuing where I left off, I'm sampling more fragrances that could possibly be bought at the meet-up this Saturday.

    Yesterday's SOTD was my first test of A Scent by Issey Miyake.



    Bright lemon-lime soda on top, quickly drying to a pleasant mix of synthetics reminiscent of dryer sheets or fabric softener. However, being as light as it is, I kept spraying myself all day to relive the topnotes.

    I'd put this in the same category as L'Eau Par Kenzo Pour Homme, with its amazing ginger ale effervescence on top and short longetivity - they both work best with repeated re-sprayings. That being said, I prefer the Kenzo to this.

    Oh, and I didn't get the dreaded acetone note discussed here, but the entire heart was just so synthetic (intentionally), I couldn't come close to pulling any notes out, so I could easily have simply missed it.

    Then, continuing the potential-meet-up-buys testing, my SOTD today has been Tom Ford Extreme.



    I actually quite liked this one. The opening blast of patchouli scared me, but it very quickly converted to a leather scent, much like Tuscan Leather, but pared down and combined with smoke. Hours later, a plummy, creamy sweetness had come in and paired with the leather. While this sounds like it could be a bit Lutens-esque, it wasn't at all. This made for a very nice combination. I think the creamy sweetness may have actually been Iso E Super (which would also explain the smoke), but it's done in a really clever way that comes off more like a plum-infused myrrh under the residual leather than an Iso-heavy incense frag.

    And finally, my SOTE today has been a test of Diptyque Oyedo.



    I'm feeling lazy, so here's a quote from Veuve Amiot's review, which is absolutely spot-on what I thought:

    "Starts out very sticky-sweet orangy - like the prefab orange lemonade that has nothing to do with orange, the fruit... Almost immediately an oddly "dirty" note starts underpinning the sweetness, saving the scent from diabetic coma. A bit longer in the "dirty" note reveals itself as thyme. The thyme is quite overpowering on my skin, which makes this one unique frag..."

    Though Veuve liked it, I really didn't. The Tang + weird herb combo isn't really working for me
