    Beautiful green chypre. After a lavender departure, the galbanum is king .I love this perfume.
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am.

    Today I'm testing Annick Goutal Gardenia Passion and I like it better this time than the last. Perhaps I'm getting more familiar with tuberose now.

    Sharing the house with Novis, I'm in Annick Goutal Mandragore, which feels like magic potion after a week of not feeling so hot. (Considering the Les Scenteurs event at the moment, but by the time I'm done considering it might have sold out...).

    Hope everyone has a good weekend! My very close friend had a baby girl yesterday morning and I'm travelling to Finland on the 25th to meet her. Very happy about that

    Last night I went to bed wearing Ava Luxe's Midnight Violette from a sample from the ever generous Twolf. Woahhh!!!! This soooo good! I hope she'll sell it again soon. I can't believe how much I like it. And I can still smell it after more than 10 hours.

    Mira & Dimitri ~ congrats to you as you celebrate 10 years of wedded bliss!

    Today, our neighboring town of Valparaiso is hosting the annual Popcorn Festival. Strange as it may seem...Valpo was home to the popcorn king himself: Orville Redenbacher. Every year, the first Saturday after Labor Day weekend, the entire Duneland area is dedicated to celebrating my all time favorite snack! Does Demeter make a buttered popcorn/caramel corn scent??? Well, later today the husband, son and I will go to the movies and definitely indulge in some fully salted and buttered crunchy popcorn goodness...oh yeah, what scent to wear? Spirituese Double Vanille by Guerlain. ( thank you very much for the sample kind basenoter! )

    First time giving this badboy a full wearing...
    it's a shame the creamy, yummy chocolate doesn't come out for about 3-4 hours and is barely noticeable unless I put my nose to my wrist.... , the top notes isn't appealing to me at all, This'd be an instant fave if the middle would last from start to finish.

    Aw, babies are lovely. My goddaughter gave birth to a bouncing little chap yesterday. 9lb! Ouch. But that puts me into the 'GodGrandmother' department. Double ouch! On the other hand, I suppose this gives me carte blanche to wear 'old lady' perfumes. Knew there would be a silver lining...

    I've come down with a stinking cold, so although my SOTD is Kelly Caleche - which I'm wearing while it's still warm enough because KC doesn't do it for me in cold weather - I think SOTE will be Vicks Vaporub.

    I feel for you with your Princeton weekends, Chaya. I hope your beautiful boy is settling in alright. With all the love and support you and B give your boys he cannot feel he needs backup, that's for sure. I bet he's missing your cooking, cariad!!!

    Congratulations to Dimi and Mira on a decade together. Well done! No-one tells you what hard work matrimony is - it's always the hearts and flowers and romance that's mentioned, never the number of times you'll bite your tongue or tidy up your beloved's mess.

    Speaking of achievements and endurance, congratulations also to Petruccijc on the run. Somehow I think you might be smelling of liniment later. Well, it's cheaper than Midnight Poison, which to my nose has the same topnote.

    Hope everyone has a fantastic Saturday Night. Me? I'll be the one with the fever...

    Happy 10th Anniversary to Dimi and Mira!

    I hope you will enjoy many more together.

    And thank you so much everybody for all the birthday wishes yesterday. You made my day. My husband had to work a little later than unusual (figures!), but I had a lovely bouquet of red roses delivered to my door, and was taken out for a nice dinner. No perfumey presents, unfortunately, but I have 99% convinced him that we need a telescope to star watch.

    My SotD is Missoni, from a decant Taolady sent a while back. I love it. It's brilliant.

    I hope everyone is having a good Saturday!

    Started out this morning wearing Neil Morris Cafe, as I drank my coffee and settled into Saturday. This is a fragrance I would have never thought I'd wear much less I don't think there's a molecule of iris in it It's a far cry from any fragrance I've owned, and one that I'm starting to love.

    On me, Cafe starts out smelling of pipe-tobacco and chocolate, with a side of almond coated croissant. There's a slight metallic note, and a puff of powder. Ten minutes later the overall sweetness subsides a bit, and a very subtle coffee note rises up. Yet each of the notes still clamor for the spotlight. As it dries down, however, Cafe becomes very much a skin scent as the sweet, warm notes blend together beautifully and sparkle softly on the skin.

    Café Official Notes:
    Coffee, Green Tea, Chocolate, Pumpkin, Vanilla Cream
    "You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future."

    "Three essentials for a good life: Someone to love, somewhere to go, and something to look forward to."

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Happy anniversary to the Dimis and many many more!

    Ubu, you know that I have never developed a liking for popcorn, this is something you should be experiencing while growing up and the "acquired taste" thing is just not happening to me. Yes, I tried it out of the microwave oven and in the movie theater, Mr.T cooks it from the kernels the old-fashioned, stove-top way about once every week, and my dog was a huuuuuuge fan, but not me! I do not like the taste, and the texture gives me creeps: I do not know what to do with the leftovers in the mouth after the good fleshy substance is gone sucked, so I just spit them out. Brielle, are you with me on that or the American way? Another American food I do not understand -- and Mr.T can't live without it -- is peanut butter.

    Lilybelle, you are right! Many of you know that we had to leave behind many things including fragrances while we moved up north from Texas, but the telescope is one of the necessities we had to keep. Can't do without one, I can assure you.

    OK, fragrance-wise: to work I wore something sprayed out of the manufacturer's vial saying Amouage Dia in gold, but knowing and liking Dia big time, I can say it was not it. Instead I got the fruity opening -- not shrieking, but nice and polite, something like a timid green peach, and in the dryout I feel cedarwood, white musk and patchouli. Have no idea what it is, would not want to wear it again. To crown it all, it must be a stronger concentration -- the whole darned thing would not come off after serious scrubbing.

    We also got long-deserved rain and it has cooled down some.

    Hope yourall's day is better than mine.

    Happy Anniversary, Dimitri!!!

    I'm testing Ginestet Botrytis on the right hand, and re-testing Frapin 1270 on the left. The Frapin continues to be my dream fall gourmand. It will stay on my wish list. The Ginestet is probably too honeyed for me, but it's interesting and I'm going to give it some time.

    Edit: The Botrytis has become quite compelling, where the 1270 is not wowing me as much as it did before. Color me confused.

    Well it's just been a rotten last couple weeks at work and corporate America and people who abuse their power have me hopping . It just isn't fair sometimes. So now it's the weekend and my coworkers and I are without a boss and without answers. I work in a pharmacy, and most of us are trying to make the best of things and get on with it but there are a couple who are just bound and determined to make things harder on the rest of us, as if we're not all in this together.
    My sotd is Gap Heaven, something I've been wearing a lot of lately because of its uncomplicated, light, quiet nature. It is lovely to bury my nose in the crook of my elbow and smell what I perceive to be a fresh-cut boquet of white flowers tied with a blue gingham ribbon.

    Happy Tenth to Dimitri and wife!

    Ubu, the popcorn festival sounds like a whole lotta fun!

    Big hugs to Twolf. Enjoy the rain.
