    Vetiver Pour Elle by Guerlain (from the last of my sample)



    So here's my theory: Guerlain took their old, original, vetiver formula (the one in vintage bottles of the EdT) and added some florals to it, then re-bottled it and made it an exclusvie-only fragrance at 4 times the price - calling it Vetiver Pour Elle, which is just lovely stuff. Then they changed the formula for the EdT (and the bottle) to something cheaper and made it a win-win situation for Guerlain and us Guerlain fans got screwed on both accounts.

    You'd think this would be enough for me to be angry, and just avoid wearing VPE, but damnit...it smells SO good.

    (sigh)

    Aoud Lime by Montale
    Just got this, and I think I've worn this three times this week, I never do that. This has everything I like about Black Aoud, without the rosiness that I am not so crazy about. The people at my office say this isn't their favorite, but I think it may now be mine, so they are just going to have to deal with it!

    By Kilian Prelude to Love today for a trip to Seaworld (and refreshed it with more this evening and ended up getting a full bottle). It's a great take on citrus + orange blossom. Love it!

    Back from a 950 mile 4 day round trip by car. My 2009 Prius Touring model clocked a reasonable 45.9 mpg at a highway average of 70+ miles per hour.

    This AM I was swathed in Czech & Speake Oxford and Cambridge as I rolled through the miles, A/C blowing cool and CD's of Mozart, Chopin and Rachmaninoff wonderfully filling the automobile interior for most of my return trip.

    Tonight I am in Czech & Speake Cuba. Both AM and PM frags complementary samples from the manufacturer.
