    John Varvatos Women for me here -- despite many comparisons with Coco Madmoiselle, I find it quite pleasant if not sweet. It is not FBW, but it is all right when the mood strikes.

    Also tested a mess of C.Celle Calypso Vanille, it is a No from me.

    After yesterday, sniffing (and purchasing) around Chicago with the MetroMan, I'm torn about what to spritz today...maybe I'll pull a VM i hate civet and wear several!!!

    I really want to douse myself in Pour le Soir, but haven't got it in my hot little hands yet...

    The Dark Amber Ginger Lily sounds good for today as well, but it's being shipped...

    Woe is me, having to decide between White Suede & Ambrette 9. I wish all of lifes dilemas were so painful !

    Okay, Tom Ford White Suede it is! As SMM so aptly pointed out, it is reminiscent of Lutens' Daim Blond - without the apricot. For me, it is a sumptuous soft suede leather with just the right blend of musk....swoon! (completely unisex as well!)

    Indulging in Note Ambree today for a long car trip home. Looking forward to listening to a Robert Parker book on tape - the voice is by Joe Mantegna. Super stuff, and so is my fragrance!

    Hi, everyone! Rainy, freezy and windy here on Staten Island, a perfect day for a sample fest thanks to the wonderful Twolf!

    Various parts of me are dabbed with

    Balenciaga Quadrille, a fruity chypre with fresh and mossy aspects. Crisp, elegant, uncompromising.

    Stephanie de Saint Aignan Blanc d'Hiver, powdery florals and musk with a fresh pear note up top. Lilting, gentle and pretty.

    Mariella Burani Messages, a soft and sheer, not overdone oriental with spices and sandalwood.

    Keiko Mecheri Oliban, beautiful incense on the sweet side, reminded me a lot of Chaos or Black Cashmere only sweeter.

    Voluspa Cult of Helios - full on heliotrope, soon joined by vanilla and musk. Sadly an odd, troubling note developed after an hour or so on my skin, not unlike unwashed hair.

    L'Or de Torrente - beautiful rose and coffee combo. Delicious! Off to shower and reapply a whole lot more of this for Sotd.

    Enjoy the day, all!

    I am a scent-soul-sister with tdem1961, for I am also a lucky recipient of Twolf's generosity and I'm enjoying three of the scents this morning.

    The trio: Hermes Ambre Narguile is gorgeous autumnal fruits, spices and amber, and it sings beautifully on the right hand with the delicious coffee, rose and creamy sweet notes of L'Or de Torrente on the left. Caron Eau de Reglisse on the wrist is just the lemony smooth kicker needed to keep it all balanced and sane.

    Totally swooning!

    A relaxing Sunday to all.

    So many lovely sounding scents... sniffed my Coromandel and its even better than I remembered. Anybody else get an uncanny resemblance to Andy Tauer's L'Air du Desert Marocain?

    Second half of my double shift was a rough one, but L'Ombre Fauve made my night!!! Jaw-dropping, eyelid-fluttering, bury-my-nose-in-my-shirt glorious!! Started looking at a full bottle of my own and found nothing on PG's website. Discontinued? Noooo.... say it ain't so!!

    If anybody knows... well.... break the news gently.

    Right now, I smell like gardening and manual labor from getting our backyard ready for winter. Shower time!! And then something different for work tonight...

    I think I'll give my new Bond No. 9 sample a full wearing.

    The Scent of Peace.
    * Grapefruit, Blackcurrant
    * Lily of the Valley, Hedione
    * Cedarwood, Musk


    The bottle and concept don't feel like they fit the juice itself. Reminds me of the sparkling fruity fragrances in Herbal Essence shampoos. Only time will tell if the muguet, jasmine-light, or cedar actually make an appearance.

    Here's hoping you're lazing on your Sunday afternoon.

    I don't always wear perfume, it's a cold day for this part of the country and I'm snuggled up inside watching football... the house smells yummy like the honey buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup and sausage I just made and I'm feeling content with a cup of coffee. Most of what I have left (after purge) is summery and I need more fragrances and scented soaps for this type of weather, guess I'd rather wear nothing than the wrong thing. Back to the game... have a great evening!

    Lancome Hypnose EDP

    Notes: Passion Flower, Sambac Jasmine, Solar Notes, Vetiver, Vanilla (from osmoz.com)

    Hypnose starts with a quick blast of bergamot and tropical fruit notes, and quickly transitions into a powdery vanilla and white floral middle. There is a sweet and tart juxtaposition that is often found in feminine floral orientals of the same era--it is usually somewhat candy-like, although in Hypnose, this combination does not come across as particularly edible. Vetiver is listed in the notes, however, I do not smell anything that resembles the vetiver essential oils I have experienced. I'm pretty sure there is actually a cleaned-up vetiver and patchouli combination in Hypnose, because the fragrance has a kind of masculine "bite" in the base that is similar to other post-Angel floral orientals.. In fact, as I was catching whiffs of sillage today, I noticed that Hypnose has a kind of barbershop quality that I never noticed before. In contrast, up close, the overall impression is billowy sweet vanilla, as feminine as it could possibly be. The base continues with sweet, soft vanilla, a nondescript amber accord and the vetiver-patchouli. I know that Hypnose is not universally liked, but I have always found it very enjoyable. It is not quite as "girly" as some floral orientals, and pulls the Angel-like feminine-over-masculine structure down to an palatable level. Perhaps this makes Hypnose more bland, but it also makes it more wearable.

    Positive Rating

    Lancome Hypnose Senses EDP

    Notes: Mandarin Orange, Pink Pepper, Osmanthus Blossom, Rose, Honey, Patchouli,, Rockrose, Benzoin, Tonka Bean (from osmoz.com)

    Hypnose Senses bears only one familiar mark from its namesake Hypnose--VANILLA. Lots and lots of vanilla with roses, powder, generic woody notes and musk. At first, there is a nice balance between flower, fruit and the ever-present vanilla. The fragrance starts very soft and boneless, not trending in any particular direction. Soon, almost all of the distinctive notes have faded to imperceptible levels as Hypnose Senses becomes yet another powder-vanilla-amber-musk. The nod to Shalimar is quite evident. For that alone, HS is not terrible, however, with so many powdery vanilla fragrances to choose from, why settle? Try some Guerlain instead.

    Well, I'm a day late in wishing a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our dear BrothaG!, but I know he's been in good hands with our BN family and the rest of the A-Team... Hope it was fabulous!

    In Guus' honor, I'm wearing one we both love, Del RaeEau Illuminee. I consider this a summer scent, but am using it today to conjure the sun, which has decided to hide behind snow clouds. Hmph.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin...
