    Testing Penhaligon's Gardenia today, from a little sample made up for me by the nice ladies at Saks in NYC.

    So far, so good. Have to let it develop a bit more. There are some unexpected notes in this.

    Edit: looked up the notes pyramid-- I think the unexpected notes are the ylang-ylang and vanilla.

    2nd edit: the ylang-ylang is spoiling it for me... too bad...

    No Encre Noir in my itty bitty collection... since it's starting to cool off here, I opted for Lucky No 6. Not exactly high brow but a nice, woodsy oriental that hit the spot today.

    Ubu - I think the a house synch is a great idea!

    Oh geeze. Didn't know about Scent Sink (yet ANOTHER gorgeous pic dear Roberto!! Ditto Petruccijc!) or would have scrummaged out my sample! Drat.

    Had already engirded myself in the glorious...

    Me, too! I know I have a sample vial of Encre Noir somewhere...

    Vent Vert had no staying power for me today, so I've had a healthy lunchtime spritz of Givenchy III. I am clearly huffing the galbanum lately.

    Yesterday - Neil Morris Gotham. ( ScentBro! )

    It didn't wear so well on me the first time. Now that the weather is turning, this Neil Morris lovely wore much better. The musky incensey woody dry-down is stunning.

    Today - Tom Ford Black Orchid Voile de Fleurs. Very gardenia-heavy at the top. Dries down to a spicy, musky floral. Enjoying it more on this wearing than I did the first time when I thought about it.

    Of course, my last few business days have been so stressful - I've been wanting to wear challenging sillage monsters. Came real close to pulling out the Opium. Thankfully, I like my new office mate and thought better of it.

    Can't participate in the SSD, no EN in the house but for those who have it, enjoy!

    I'm wearing a little of Mandy Aftel's Cepes perfume, also known as Tuberose & Cepes. Don't be surprised. If you know me, you know I dont usually care for tuberose but there are a few exceptions. This is one of them. The cepes note gives just the right amount of earthiness, so that the tuberose isn't overly sweet on my skin. Ms. Aftel herself told me I wear it well. I think I do too.

    Yesterday was my daughters' 12th birthday. We Skyped with Daddy, sang "Happy Birthday" and blew candles out on her mini cake. It was fun but a little sad, since the big guy's not here in person.

    Saturday is her party. (Give me strength). Eight 12-13 year old girls are sleeping over for a spaghetti dinner & beauty treatments. We are making lip glosses & bath salts.

    In the meantime, I'm cleaning the house.

    Well, I haven't a sample of Encre Noir, but it sounds like a must-try! As it will be near 100°F. today here, I decided to sample the newest "certified organic" L'Artisan fragrance, Cote d'Amour. Luckyscent notes include green tangerine, pink grapefruit, rosemary, dune immortal flower, cypress, gorse blossom, rose, broom, heather.

    The jury is still out. I really want to love this one -- it's a quite pretty aquatic (though the ad copy claims that it's not an aquatic) -- but so far I just like it.

    Quick post, today. I just stopped in to see if the newest 3x3 Blind Sniff thread had been started. I don't even have time to look for my sample of Encre Noir, so I decided to substitute with big, easy to find bottle of L'Occitane Vetyver instead.

    I'll likely be away until tomorrow evening. Have a great day all!

    I HATE, HATE, HATE being out of rhythm with BN. But my slide show programs are pretty much composed as of this afternoon. I just have to send an outline and exam questions to the accrediting garden club chairperson, and I should be able to unhitch the bridle that's kept my brain harnessed to the iMovie program for countless weeks now. Yay! I'm free!

    I'm extra unsynchronized, Encre Noire or otherwise. HOWEVER ... swap items came in the mail today: Mitsouko edp decant as expected and a surprise sample of Masaki Mintea--yum! Was wearing my wobbly vintage Mitsouko today already.
    Absolutely HAPPY EQUINOX, Lilybelle and all. It's a beautiful, invigorating time of year.

    Hello all

    Chaya love, what a beautiful post. L'Shanah Tovah to you also. Hope your head feels fine soon, you do need a break.

    RHM Please extend my sincerest wishes for a Happy joyous birthday to Sofie. I am sure her party will be a blast.

    Mystic, I hope you are feeling well tomorrow and avoiding solid foods. I had all of my wisdom teeth out at the same time, i had so much laughing gas, the dentist joked that he could beat me with a hammer and i would still be laughing, to which i replied laughingly "Hammer Time!". Good times for all. Be well

    Sorry i could not participate in SSD, no Lalique scent in my wardrobe, although many Nina Ricci's in Lalique bottles. I did start off the day wearing Le de Givenchy the original version.
    Tonight i am wearing Nirmala by Molinard. Both scents are glorious.

    Wishing everyone a peaceful night, love and hugs.
