Another hot day predicted here, too! SOTD is Hong Kong Garden again; I'm too sleepy to paw through my bottles and samples for a new choice. Take care, all!
It's really cold out, but wearing cashmere to help warm me and Liz Claiborne Vivid is a perfect match.
Jasmine de Nuit by The Different Company (from a sample - thanks jr4dt)
I think this is a chypre...atleast it really smells like one. And I'm loving it. I don't think I've ever smelled a chypre done by JC Ellena. Plus the cinnamon in the dry down is, for obvious reasons, really impressing me. One big yum.
Poor you [/QUOTE]
3xasif - Thanks darling ! *HUG* feeling more human as the morning is going by.

SOTD: Montale Intense Tiare
No 5 Eau Premiere for me, it hits the spot. I had bought the 200ml bottle and already have put a big dent into it.
I'm simplifying my life. For Sale Thread (some niche, some designer):
I'm scent twins with dimples today! It's Chanel No 5 eau Premiere for me (again) today, too.

Looking to try Les Senteurs Gourmandes Musc Blanc, Parfums de Nicolai Vanille Intense, Chanel Beige and...everything else!
Hi all - hope your Tuesday is going/went well.
Sharing the marvelous house of Nicolai with Roberto...
Using up a sample now...hoping for a coupon code from BH or LS so I can buy a FB for myself and save some $$ too! (one can always hope, right?)
Gentle dental wishes to Mysticknot and Ubu's little mister.
Bigarade Concentree. Showering was delayed until afternoon. Still troubleshooting our TV. Today I learned about thermal grease on driver chips. Who knew circuitry needed fluids?
Hugs to those with healing teeth, they can be a pain in you know where.
I am not in the best physical shape these days either: the antique quilt I volunteered to restore is finished, I had to do a lot of piecing and bordering as well as simple mending where it was possible. Took me two weeks. And -- would not you know it?-- my carpal tunnel kicked in -- with swelling, numbing and difficulties doing anything at all -- not just stitching -- with the right hand. My DH -- not "dear' here -- said: "Do not volunteer!" hahaha
YSL M7 for the evening, comforting warm woods.
Fumerie Turque, again.
Mike smells yummy. I love Jasmin de Nuit. It's my favorite jasmine.
I'm wearing Pure White Linen as SotE. It's still so hot here, and this just satisfies
Chanel No. 22 parfum.
It came this afternoon. So soft and lovely.
Creed Virgin Island Water here today. Flashes of lime and coconut on a grey day.
Ouch, going to the dentist s*cks...you poor things!
(I had an appointment with my sadistic Danish dentist a couple of weeks ago, but chickened out, and called him and said I was going on vacation, and that I would contact him when I came back. He gave me a weird look when I met him at the grocery store a few days later...)
Ooops, almost forgot - SotD/SotN are Anné Pliska/Gaultier2.
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Aww, Twolf, your poor wrists. What a fun, fulfilling project, though, I bet the quilt is gorgeous.
Hugs to mysticknot, your poor toothies!
I smell many tasty things in here today, Bal a Versailles, Hypnotic Poison, Chanel No. 22...mmm! I've been smelling lots o' 22 in here lately, and I'm ever so patiently awaiting my fb's arrival in the mail.
I just love my midweek day off! I got in a good workout, then I went to the farmers' market and bought some heirloom tomatoes for dinner, and ate an asparagus salad with rosemary flatbread for lunch.
And I'm wearing Tabac Blond.
The way out is a way in-- NEP
Bombay Sapphire Infusion tonight. Gin and tonic without a doubt..
Things are things because of Mind--Zen Buddhist saying
SotE for me is vetiver, vetiver, vetiver, from dividing up a kilo of vetiver resin from Eden Botanicals. Tomorrow is Premium Dark Amber, I can't wait

This evening I am feeling more spritely and I am extensively sprayed with Jicky EDP so I am stinking up the house !
Good evening all !

Wow. I definitely did not give Carnal Flower enough of a chance on my first go-round. (I think it was at bedtime) I am just blown away by this drydown! Gorgeous, and lives up to the "carnal!"
Darn it. Why can't I ever fall in love with something CHEAP?!?!?!

I still remember getting my wisdom teeth out - all four at once and it knocked me out for days...
Today's SOTD has been a test of Armani Acqua Di Gio.
I haven't worn or smelled this in years, so it's interesting to test this again. Given the its horrible reputation here and the fragrance atrocities it is blamed with enabling, I was expecting a horrifying combination of cheap bergamot and calone, but it's not that at all.
It's herbal. Pleasantly so. With salt. I could almost consider this a salty garrigue (the smell of herbs wafting on a breeze). Trying hard, I can sort of see how the salt + dry basil + rosemary could sort of simulate watermelon (sort of...), but that's kind of reaching, at least on me. I don't care much for salty frags, so I don't think I need a bottle, but there are MUCH worse scents out there that actually deserve some of the spitefulness thrown at AdG way more than this does.

Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??
Good evening all
Mystic, hope you will feel all well soon.
Last evening's Nirmala was still pretty strong when i arose today, so i decided to enjoy its lingering scent; talk about tenacity.
When it wore down, a good 14 hours after application, i put on some SMN Muschio, which smells delightful.
Tonight i put on some Un Jour de Charles Jourdan, which is as sweet and yummy as floral candy.
My tummy has been growling since dinner, i think Chaya's wish for all is coming to fruition; a pig flying out of my 'tuchus', but it could just be a rumbly tumbly.
Have a great night all, love and hugs
