    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    This evening I am trying out Jo Malone Orange Blossom from a sample . It's very orangey to start and then neroli ( which always seems to smell like steamed basmati rice on my skin for some reason ) - not bad and better than Laura Mercier Neroli. Just not very long lasting, dries down after 2 hours to a light soapy hand wash smell .
    Have a great evening everyone.

    Hello all...last one to the party?

    Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Dmitri!

    Went scentless today b/c I had to be outside, stomping around in the long grass...

    So just dabbed on a bit from each of 3 samples:

    ELPC Jasmine and White Moss...last few times I found that I loved the opening but then becomes something very "heavy", sometimes overpowering...yet I don't give up . This time, just used a tiny bit...right now, it's in that gorgeous drydown.

    Les Nez Manoumalia....the main note is fragrea (sp?), known here, I believe, as puakenikeni - a fabulously fragrant blossom used in lei. It's an unusual one - you can pick it white & then it will turn a deep golden color. The scent is creamy and sweet - I think that if you like gardenia, tuberose, pikake...then you will like puakenikeni.

    Delrae Debut - soapy white floral. I think it could be nice on the right person - but my mom used to use an bathroom freshener (Amway?) that smelled just like this (sorry!).

    Big hugs to all...hope your Sunday is restful and happy.
