    I really do like it! I sprayed a bit on my sheets & inhale it all night long.

    Today my whole house smells of a very nice dupe of MPG Ambre Precieux, due to a soaping mishap. So I decided to go with it and rub a titch on my skin.

    TGIF for sure

    Farnesiana, this one never ceases to amaze me with it's complexity, it never smells the same on me, each time some new quality emerges.

    I'm giving Love's True Bluish Light a try for the first time today....It was way too sweet at first sniff, and I was afraid I was facing another Chinatown...but, the sweet top note disappeared quickly and left a lovely cozy vanilla. I'm not sure that I'll ever be completely at home in this family of scents, but LTBL is definitely the most easy to wear for me. It does make me long for my flannel jammies and a good book!

    Well everyone is smelling fabulous this Friday !
    Also there is some Love's True Bluish Light on A L 's etsy shop now- in oil form of course !

    This morning it's some Opium extrait for me to wake up to and I am sure it will be something else a bit later on. Have a fabulous weekend and I hope Basenoters going to the meet up have a fun filled fragrant time. I wish I could be there too .

    Winks good morning, my shining jewels!

    I swear, your posts become wiser and sweeter and cuter everyday--kiddies and kitties and perfume notes. You're mentioning some of the frags on my to-sniff list for tomorrow's BASENOTES WORLDWIDE MEET-UP (which starts with Ubu and me having coffee in The Big Willy)!

    Twolf, I'm so frustrated for you and Mr. Timberwolf due to your This Old House hassles.

    I reached for my sample bottle of Hové Rue Royale this morning. It's shy and soothing.

    SotD for me is Cruel Gardenia.

    You all remind me that I must give the Iris Nobile EDP a try.
    I have tried the EDT, and it was not for me. However, I hear that the EDT and EDP are considerably different --- yes? I do love the iris note...

    Happy Aloha Friday to all...

    Back in town after a lovely summer at the lake. Hard to believe school is starting soon! Today I am in Essence by Narciso Rodriguez. I may like the bottle better than the perfume, but it is pretty nice. Very clean start but then switches gears and becomes kind of a clean, sexy musk.

    Hi all and happy London Meet-Up Day!

    I expect detailed reports...

    Today's SOTD is my first test of Michael Kors by Michael Kors, which apparently used to be called Michael For Men - with thanks to Snaggy1 for the sample!



    Tobacco and leather and plums, but with a slightly unfortunate ozone note in there. It feels kind of like someone submitted a really nice, expensive, classy-smelling fragrance to the bean counters at Estee Lauder and some suit said "yeah, it's nice, but make it more fresh", so, in a fit of artistic suicide, the frustrated perfumer threw in some cheap ozone and rounded out the otherwise beautiful plum with that popular TANG-smelling fake orange. Seriously, you can actually smell that there's a beautiful, well-crafted perfume in here, with a pinch of crap added, most likely to satisfy some corporate idiot.

    95% great, but that other 5% is just sad...

    Coffee? You get coffee? When I was there, all I got was a shot of grass juice.

    (Oh, all right, I'm not a coffee drinker, either, so it doesn't make much difference.)

    Big Willy? Not even going to go there....

    I raise my drink in a toast to all the Basenoters meeting up this weekend. Happy sniffing!

    I'm back from a fantastic day in London at the Basenotes lunch. It was superb, thank you so much Dani, Grant and Pia for organising it.

    My skin-sampled scents today have been BNTBTBB Cocktail, Penhaligons Amarantine (due out in October and it's going to be a loong wait!), Malle's Une Rose and l'Eau d'hiver, CDG Sherbert- Rhubarb, and Creed Virgin Island Water (finally bought). I sniffed countless others on paper and have a splendid little sample stash to enjoy too.

    I'm back from the gym . I was next to this older lady on one of the bikes. Her perfume was wafting towards me for the hour I was on the bike so with time to kill I tried to think of what it could be. I thought it was Opium or Tabu . Turns out ,she was wearing Charlie !! Took me by surprise because it smelt really good on her.

    Anyway, this afternoon it's Beyond Love By Kilian.

    Well, I stayed in colour code for this late rainy afternoon, and as my Love's True Bluish Light faded away, I replaced it with L'Heure Bleu. Mmmmm. I am intrigued by the scent and enthralled by the history of it....wonderful and just right for my mood and the weather....

    I had been thinking about that shot of green you girls gulped. This ol' gal's getting herself some coffee after two hours of travel.

    Mossant, whom we should be meeting up with at some point, tells us that Big Willy's the new nickname for the Sears Tower/now Willis Tower.

    Well Quarry... since you are a green lover, a shot of wheatgrass may be in order!
    Gosh, I'm always the last to know...Big Willy ...still Sears Tower to me. Just like Macy's on State will always be Fields in my heart! Get your sleep Quarry, and put on your walkin' shoes!

    LOL! That reminds me of this excellent Simon's Cat video.

    It's 100º here today and I'm really looking forward to enjoying the cool weather up in the city tomorrow. Even more so, meeting and sniffing with fellow BNers!

    I got a wonderful package in the mail from bbBD (thankfully rescued from the mailbox before it reached a boiling point inside), and am finally getting to sample Givenchy III! This is the vintage edt, and I feel so, so lucky to be wearing it!

    I got called in very early for an emergency heart cath this morning and didn't put any scent on while I rushed out the door. Lucky for me, I had a few samples in my locker, so I ended up wearing Mure et Musc.

    I'm meeting with CologneJunkie tomorrow in Kansas City for our mini-BN meeting! I truly have not been this excited about anything for a long time. If anyone is in KC or within driving distance, we would love to have you join us! PM me or check the BN meeting weekend social group for info.

    Hi everyone, sounds as if the London BN meet-up was a success, glad you all had fun.

    Today i started with Azurée by EL and it is still just as potent 10 hours later.
    After my shower i want to wear Private Collection by EL, but will see how much Azurée remains. Might have to go in another direction, with some Youth Dew, we will see.

    Looking forward to tomorrow, but hubby is feeling under the weather, so i will have to play this as it unfolds.

    Goodnight all, love and hugs.
