    Wow, that is some bottle, Roberto!

    Having regained some bits of my sense of smell, I am in Missoni today. A nice scent for stalking the postal guy... LOL!

    31RC smells similar to AC? At least I now have a kind of guidepost through this land of Anosmia. Thanks, U!

    Morning all. It is raining, raining, raining this morning and I put on a sweater for the first time in ages. PG's Cadjmere felt like a good choice.

    I'll join the gaggle of girls giggling at "Full Choke". Oh dear...

    Welcome, Fleurry.

    I'm still not right (!); though better & mostly now suffering from med side-effects and not eating. Seeing doc again tomorrow though. At least I'm improving. Have had my head buried in chemistry today in more ways than one (studying on the course, though had to take breaks because it's a bit hard to concentrate).

    Alas, no perfume, but Lush's Breath of Fresh Air toner aplenty today. It really is. A Breath of Fresh Air. (One of the products I bought over 12 years ago long before I worked for them). It's got a very simple perfume and aloe vera gel.

    Speaking of the course, remember I said I bumped into my tutor at the BSP symposium? They caught us on camera http://bit.ly/GbhmE

    YES Asha, "sour" is the best adjective, and I get a bit of this in 31RC AND in AC!

    I'm switching to COCO, Chanel.

    Q, "harmless old things"..... Hmmmm..... Not THAT old and sometimes having a mindset of our own, we BNers..... For example, I bite, but you have to deserve it to be bitten by a Twolf.

    Actually, I am a scent twin with SMM in Guerlain Bois d'Armenie. Three notices at work, how about that?

    N_Tesla, like or dislike that Mauboussin? You changed into something else real quickly, I gather.

    Asha, yes, it DOES look like joystick, of sorts....

    Ubu, please do not use the word "sour" in regards with 31 RC, use something like "acidic". Will you, please?

    This afternoon- I'm wearing Jo Malone Tuberose layered with Fracas. The two are quite similar - if you like Fracas - you will definitely love JM's Tuberose too .

    Testing AL Madame X today. Not sure if it is a keeper, but need to give it a few more wearings before I decide.

    Take care, all.

    SotE = Marc Jacobs Lemon. I'm really enjoying this. It's only vaguely citrussy, and has a soft cottony drydown. It would make great linen water, too.

    Welcome, Fleurry!

    Nukapai, I hope you feel better soon. Sending you ~~~~~~~~~~ get well vibes ~~~~~~~~~ and ((hugs)).

    I've been chortling, reading all your witty comments. Wish I could come up with something to match them. But thank you Roberto, for a very funny day's thread. That bottle is truly hilarious. Welcome Fleurry, you joined us on a very good day!

    I spent the day in Fragonard's Miranda - coconut and vanilla - very rich and sweet and comforting. I like this enormously. Now I've topped up with Kenzo Amour Le Parfum, which isn't like Kenzo Amour and therefore disappointed me at first, but now I can see it as a completely separate fragrance, I like it. Even better, this makes me scent twins with tdem. Woo hoo!

    Nighty night.

    I fully choked on my iced tea when I saw Roberto's post. Great start to today's thread!

    I'm wearing Diptyque's Opoponax, from a sample vial that I labeled myself. I vaguely remember now Kess bringing this to me, and I think she said it's a room spray. I don't care; I smell good!

    A varied day: morning with Mimosa Pour Moi. After gym and sunbathing, Terracota Eau Sous de Vent (Guerlain) to help the tan last longer. Finally, dinner at a restaurant with Amouage Epic Woman.
