    It's Dzongkha for me today. Really need to wear this more often, as I simply love it. Wishing all a wonderful day!

    I'm off to my Rheumatologist appointment this morning, wearing just a tiny bit of Fumerie Turque. I have a hard decision to make regarding starting a new medication or keep trying my old ones a bit longer.

    Hugs to ineespenes and to everyone else who needs or wants them.

    I'm with Mo today. LHB.

    My hips & knees have been keeping me from doing too much, including sleeping. OUCH.
    I'm going to try lemon juice in water today to help balance my system.

    Also, I made some antibac spray today using essential oils & aloe vera gel. Smells wonderful!

    Whenever I wear this, I feel impeccably well groomed. It's weird how a fragrance can do that.

    Sharing the house with Ubu and Mike. Wearing a combo of modern Mitsouko edp and vintage Mitsouko I just bought (it's a little weak, maybe even a little off, but still pretty good and quite smooth).
    Yoikes, Kumquat, another fabulous foto! Bet you smell divine, too. Here's my humble perfume & pic. The charge card there's to show scale and make inference

    My experiments on layering Parisienne continue. Right now I have it over C&E original Evelyn (which is a fresh rose) and it is a very good combination. The musk softens Evelyn a bit and the rose note is strengthened. Quite pleasant.

    I also tried some layering on paper. The results:
    Layered over AA Flora Nerolia-- very dirty smelling, blecch!
    Over Eau d'Hadrien-- weird, not to mention a waste of pre-reformulation Eau d'Hadrien
    Over Eau de Thé Vert Extrême -- produced a sickly candy smell
    Over AA Rosa Magnifica-- Rosa Magnifica completely overwhelmed and obliterated Parisienne.

    So far the layering works best with --no surprise-- roses and violets. So tomorrow I'll layer it over Paris. Much as I like Paris, I find it a bit too strong and powdery, so maybe that combo will give me more use of my bottle of Paris. It's a shame to let it just sit there unused.

    Big hugs to Ineespenes, big gentle hugs to Shannon and RHM, and more big hugs to anyone else here who feels like a hug from a big, loud, fragrant redhead would be just the ticket!

    Today I'm breaking out the first of my two impulse Beautyhabit sale buys: Parfums de Nicholai Grand Vacances. It's a light-hearted, citrusy floral that will work beautifully in warmer weather (or sprayed on the bed linens in the dark of winter when I'm dreaming of sun and light air). I am enjoying it VERY much, but it doesn't quite fit my mood today. I'll be putting on another dose of Penhaligon's Elixir for the evening.

    Grand Vacances notes include: Lime, assorted florals (including honeysuckle, I think!), and a very light dusting of cinnamon.

    Hey, ComDiva - do you have a spare big hug for me? Most of my Yesterday was really pretty good - but it was tainted by a late afternoon meeting with a crazy person who thinks it's okay to insult people, lie, bully, and YELL...and people keep letting him get away with it. In any case, my nerves were shot at the end of the evening...it takes so much energy to stand up against bullies...

    Hope today is much calmer.

    RainDropSparkle- my friend in Hawaii - I am sending you hugs and kind thoughts too. There are some horrible people ! However - what goes round will come round !

    This afternoon I am testing out Isabey Gardenia. This is really not very gardenia- like .... maybe a whiff or two here and there but my goodness- it reminds me of the original Poison ! Maybe not as strong but definitely on the same page.

    And give me a few minutes with your yelling bully... Mean people bring out the b*tch in me, and I'm certainly not above pointing out that the louder an opinion is expressed, the more likely it is that there's not a lot of brains behind the bluster.

    And you smell divine, even if you're stressed out!

    30Roses, your combos crack me up, but do not mind me please and keep up the good job finding your one'n'only perfect combination!

    Bullies -- I somehow am a magnet for them, they are attracted to me -- I used to be working for one who thought he was Napoleon, I am not sure though. Shrieking at the top of his lungs and making me cry would make his day. Glad it is long all over with. (I always think about what Napoleon said: "The army crawls on their belllies" -- quoting it from memory, so if I am wrong feel free to correct it -- meaning that good food is very important in the life of a soldier).

    Hugs to inees too!

    OK, I wore Parfum d'Hermes today.

    Report for the day--my layering combo of JM Vanilla & Anise with Hermes Gentiane Blanche was rather dull, but thankfully tolerable. The bitter green and pepper did not go well with the vanilla, although I thought it might play nice with the anise.

    SotE, not sure yet...

    SOTE is Cuir de Russie for me. I was inspired from the Cuir Lancome thread.

    I think that I too, will snatch a hug from ComDiva.

    That's a beauty of a bottle, dear Q.

    Hi all!

    If anyone's interested, I found that Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise layered really interestingly with her Nutmeg & Ginger. You wouldn't think it would work, but if you have samples, check it out...

    My SOTD today was my first test of Tom Ford Arabian Wood.



    The first thing that struck me was the unexpectedness of its peachy floral top, with just a pinch of citrus to liven it up. Later, just a touch of orris root and powder proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that whoever designed this had Mitsouko in mind, but with sandalwood, myrrh, and a touch of slightly-sour oud replacing Mitsouko's vanilla oriental base.

    So is it a warm-weather Mitsouko? Or a masculine interpretation of it? Or a woody incense scent that just happens to share topnotes with one of the most famous scents available? Who knows... To me, it smells good, but not super-amazing. Hmmmm....
    Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??
