    SotE: L'Heure Bleu


    Mmmmmmmmmmmmm. Another back to school: as a recovering grad student, the historical import of L'Heure Bleu gives me that autumnal desire to read, to learn, to understand the past........

    I wore DelRae Bois de Paradis today. Did a morning shift at work, went with Mr.T -- for moral support -- to cut the friend's grass, came back to work. Spoke with my immediate supervisor about dream jobs -- his is to be an activity organizer on a cruise ship, mine is a guest lecturer on fragrances and notes. We both had a good laugh through this bonding event.

    Hope your Monday and the last day of summer was not very hard on you and yours.

    Hi all!

    Today's SOTD has been my first test-wearing of Byredo Pulp.



    In the store, this one never fails to grab me and make me sniff wistfully, but on me it's not really doing much. It reminds me a lot of a mangosteen-flavored soy candle I used to burn at work, and it's really hard to justify spending this much on a frag because it reminds me of a $9 candle I used to like, when I could just go get another candle. Meh.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Since I was a bit sniffed-out yesterday, I skipped the SOTD post, but mine was D.S. & Durga Coriander, from my full bottle.



    Spices, woods, and tea-inflected red berries. I have to say I don't understand this scent at all (it's supposed to be based on coriander essential oil they distill themselves in their home), but I really like it. It's one my nose will have to grow into...

    Posting ever so lat, per usual.

    Hope everyone will have a smashing week.
    I am still loving the recaps of the get-togethers, such a fabulous time for all.

    Today i started out with Weekend by Burberry.
    I used to always spray myself at work in Sephora so i never thought of purchasing a bottle. After leaving Sephora i forgot about it, until 2 weeks ago when i stopped in the Burberry shop and asked for a spritz. I fell in love all over again and ordered a bottle 3 days later. Well i am so happy i ordered this, it really is such a carefree yummy scent. It is relaxed and laid-back, if that makes any sense. It just really fits the need, a strong scent that is very soothing and calming, who could want more.

    I took a small dab of Ines de la Fressange this afternoon and did not enjoy that at all. It was much too much, a little too sweet also.

    So tonight i am back in Weekend by Burberry, just heavenly.

    Have a peaceful night all, love and hugs.

    I was all sniffed out too, on Sunday, but wore samples I had acquired on our wild adventure the day before. So, yesterday I wore by Kilian Liaisons Dangereuses and Guerlain Attrape Coeurs. The DL was really sweet-sour jam all the way through, but then most of the fruityness gave way to more floral, then amber-vanilla, and in the deep drydown. a rather masculine leathery musk. AC was beautiful, and right now beyond words. The only down part was a portion of the development that had too much ungrounded spice giving a bit of a candle effect. I think it was probably supposed to be carnation. Still, a gorgeous fragrance, though.

    Today, I wore my new Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise, which is actually an EDC, not EDT as I thought when posting on Saturday. I must be honest, it is really nothing special or ground-breaking. But, what it DOES deliver is a light, dry vanilla without a vanilla extract edge or headache inducing vanilla confection bombs. It is thin, light, sheer, subdued, and I love the licorice note. Sometimes an easy frag is all I really want, and yes, it will be good for layering. Thankfully there is no perfume police waiting to write me a ticket when I layer it with something other than a different Jo Malone scent.

    SotE, switched to chocolate with Borneo 1834.

    Another long day for me. Could not decide what sample to wear and it was so hot today that I needed a citrus. I chose Iskander.

    I'm arriving late today! So wonderful to end a Monday with such a fun thread. Everyone is in great humor today.

    We had what felt like an early fall day here too. I've been scent-twinned with turquoisewater in YSL Y (thanks to a great sniffing buddy!).

    Good night, everyone!
