    Poor Twolf, I'm with Chaya-- not a punishment but awful nonetheless. I'm also with everyone who says to please see a specialist. You deserve to be able to do what you love.

    Have a safe trip to Boston, Brielle, hugs to your friend.

    Quarry, I'm really sorry about your morning, but I couldn't help but smile at your lil emoticons.

    Hello hello to the lurking Makeup Maniac, pm me if you see this! :wave:

    Happy Friday, all!

    Thanks for the thoughts Sunnyfunny, but i did not end up going into Boston. My friend bailed out at the last minute, thank goodness i did not already hop on the train, so we will meet next week. Friend needs more than a hug, friend needs to focus on living and not on men. I never understood that, for me i always lived by my belief that men were like buses..."If one goes by, another will be along in around 5 minutes." It has proven very true for me, wish she could see that also.

    So for my sotd, instead of the new Serge, i am wearing the new Guerlain- Idylle, thanks to a sweetheart who is so super kind. I absolutely love this! It is so un-Guerlain like, but it is wonderful on its own merit as a great scent. It is interesting, it is sweet, it has a unique quality to it, it definitely receives a huge thumbs up.

    Hope everyone will enjoy the day

    Morning again everyone- Brielle- I bet you smell fabulous !
    Twolfie- yes, please see a specialist- still thinking of you.

    I am wearing Marc Jacobs Essence- needing some gardenia love this morning.

    *SIGH*
    Off to the dentist again this morning to check on my jaw. I am a walking medicine cabinet these days - I am taking so much, I must being rattling .

    Next time I have to go to the dentist, I must get some MKK or L'Air de Rien and stink him up . I am feeling very devilish after all the pain he has put me through.

    Well, seems I'm next in line for my share of boy troubles. Stupid row, he's sulking, and I'm determined to be childish and take the best revenge possible: thoroughly enjoy myself going out with friends. Wearing Kingdom. Now if that doesn't attract the right kind of attention... Hugs to all.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Run for your lives its a sign of the Apocalypse.!

    It was a crazy morning full of crazy busy-ness and so I arrive here later than normal.
    Twolf our aches and pains are not emblematic of punishment but of a life lived and full of doing things.
    Unfotunately the more we do the quicker we wear out.
    I smile over every ache I have because it came from doing something I love to do. You just have to let medical science get you fixed up and back in the game
    Until then get lost in the 3X3.

    For this day of busy chores I was in a floral mood and went for the big guns.

    Frederic Malle Carnal Flower

    Most of the fragrances I wear I get them on the first wear and subsequent wears rarely expose something I miseed on the first sniff. There are far fewer fragrances that are much different depending on the temperature and yet are rewarding in both warm and cold. Then there are the rare gems which are ever changing kaleidoscopes of notes which seem to reveal different beautifully complex combinations as if by whim. I think no matter how many times I wear them I'll never figure them out completely. One of these gems is the 2005 release for Frederic Malle Editions de Parfum, Carnal Flower. Dominique Ropion has created an incredible tuberose centered scent that is easily worn by a man and will reward those wearings with one of the most beautifully textured scents you could wear. If you take a look at the note list for Carnal Flower it can be a little off-putting. If you think that a scent with things like melon, coconut and eucalyptus has to be an unblanced bit of craziness, no one could blame you. If it keeps you from trying this, that is too bad. From the top a little bergamot starts things off traditionally and it is quickly joined by the tuberose core of Carnal Flower. The description on the box boasts that Carnal Flower has the highest concentration of tuberose absolute of any fragrance and the intensity of the tuberose throughout the develpopment definitely shows this to be true. As the tuberose begins to come to the fore the first surprise is that note of eucalyptus as the camphor-like nature of that plays elegantly against the sweet floral nature of the tuberose. This beginning has felt different on me every time I wear this. Sometimes the eucalyptus seems like an equal partner and other times it seems like it is a grace note. As this moves into the heart the other problematic notes come into play as the melon and coconut show up but they are kept in check thorughout and are used as complemetary notes. Here the sweetness of both the coconut and the melon enhance instead of detract; as they do for me in so many other scents they are used in. The base is a mix of white musk and tuberose and the musk proves to be a perfect light partner. For something with this much tuberose in it it never rises to the level of seeming to be too-much on me. It stays at an appropriate level for a shared fragrance. Carnal Flower has excellent longevity and excellent sillage. Carnal Flower is just one of the best scents I own.

    Have a Floral Friday everyone.

    I'm retesting my sample of SL 5:00 au gingembre. This is one of the few Luten's I've tried that I do not love. It's not bad, just not quite "it" for me. It's just as well, because there are about five Luten's I would like a full bottle of and I haven't tested them all yet.

    Guys, thanks for your kind words. The doctor -- at work, not a specialist -- said: "Plenty of rest and Advil". Not sure about the first and the second is just not happening. And I will get lost where kind SMM has suggested.

    Will wear EL PC AYY (that is for Amber Ylang Ylang) for the evening.

    Quoting because I want to remember this wonderful thought! I always enjoy your posts, SMM, If you wrote a version of Perfumes: SMMs Guide, I would buy it. At a midnight release party, no less!


    I enjoyed my Bois des Iles for as long as it lasted, but I needed something with a little more OOMPH this afternoon...I've spent the day being Martha-esque, making two gallons of homemade meat sauce (yum) and doing lots of laundry (yuck). I wanted a more assertive floral open, with a good tang of freshness, and yet I also wanted a little musk/leather/naughty girl drydown...What to choose? Fracas? Floral, yes, but the drydown wasn't naughty enough. Vent Vert? Fresh, green, great on this crisp day...but something is lacking for this evening's mood. Cuir de Russie? Got my bad girl, for sure, but not enough sweetness to open. Then, I knew.

    31 Rue Cambon it is!

    I love it when I am hunting for that perfect scent to fit a mood and then I actually find it! This is just what I needed!

    NOW YOU LISTEN TO YOUR MOMMY....pain is NOT a requirement and Advil used as prescribed is effective and harmless. Don't make me come over there to make sure you are doing what you were told.

    I know, who would have ever thought. I guess it was just taking Guerlain off of the alter i had created for them when i was younger and just looking at the newest creation without thinking of it as a "Guerlain".

    You are correct Mystic lovey, i did smell nice. It really was a treat, so pleased i had the chance to try it out.


    Tonight i am wearing Lapis Lazuli by Galimard, i absolutely love their scents. Never a letdown and soooo reasonably priced

    If anyone is in, or going to Grasse, please let me know, i need something from Galimard.

    Love and hugs to all of my precious darlings, have a peaceful night.

    SotD: Armani Prive Jasmin Eclat. It's just too much vetiver for me, even from the beginning. I think I may have to sell it.

    SotE: Yosh Stargazer. It starts out pretty but a bit cloying. It'll be interesting to see where it goes.
    For sale: JL Scherrer parfum (reduced price) and more!
