    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    I am participating in the SPCA Pet Walk this morning, so my SOTD is just a few squirts of Mugler Cologne to keep me fresh on this mid-80 degree day. Have a great Saturday everyone!

    Notes include Bergamot, Neroli, Petitgrain, Orange flower, "S" and White Musk.

    Wolfie gave it a nod, so I blind-bought....

    ....um, curious. On me it opens with a blast of alcohol - unusual for an EDP. First impression is of cinnamon with a light musky undertone. A whiff of ...jasmine? A light green that could be taken for - maybe - Red Delicious. Or is that vanilla? Or both.

    Glad I didn't spend a lot of money...but won't mind spending the day in it!

    Ambre Narguile for me today. Heavy rain is predicted for today, and I must spend it outdoors. At least Ambre Narguile should keep me warm.

    I'm testing PG Musc Maori this morning.

    I like it, but I will finish my bottle of Matin Calin before buying this one, which probably means that I'll never buy it.

    It's rainy here, too. I'm hanging around the house this morning in a bit of Estee Lauder's Sensuous. It's very pleasant, but I'll soon become bored with it - only because my taste is for airier fragrances lately. I like the sweetness in this one, though. I'll move on to something else after I've dragged my lazy self into the shower.

    Sunnyfunny, I'm very sorry for your loss.

    My condolences to you and your family.

    Crazed with indecision today, thus so far I'm scentless (and possibly senseless LOL).

    Time for the blind grab into the sample box...

    And it looks like it will be C&S Dark Rose this morning.

    Bonjour darlings

    I am finally here before noon, usually i am here after midnight (and extremely exhausted).

    Today i am going to be wearing Nina (original) by Nina Ricci, it is quite different from the newer version, it is a woody floral, with a touch of chypre to it. It is a gray, eventually soggy, day here, so it will be perfect.

    Hope everyone will enjoy their day and weekend.

    Love and hugs sweeties

    Rain. Lots and lots of rain.
    Phone burr-rings … The septic's backing up for our tenants. This shouldn't be happening.

    I need a fragrant, emotional counterbalance (to postpone worry until DH assesses the rental situation). From the Dimples sample pack: Jicky parfum. Ahhhh. A memory: I'd worn the parfum concentration just one other time. It was during vacation. I was visiting Disneyworld where my daughter used to work. Epcot, the Guerlain boutique … I can see myself walking from the French pavilion toward the Moroccan one. I'm smiling, recognizing the fine similarities between the Jicky edt I own and the parfum, whose price, spoken by the Disney cast member with a French accent, would be greater than the cost of my round trip and accommodations.

    Thank you, Quarry! You are a super sleuth to have caught that one.

    I hope the septic system situation will work out ok - keeping fingers crossed for you.

    And you smell wonderful, btw.

    Aqua Allegoria Lavande Velours from a sample (thanks, arwen_elf!)

    This is a lovely soft lavender with violet and sandalwood-- who knew these scents could go so well together? Should never have been discontinued.

    Saturday! Finally! Woo-hoo! :bounce:

    Got my Sephora order last night. Chose 2 of my 3 "free samples" to be frag's...one is KenzoAmour. Big thumbs down w/ my chemistry. I tried to wash it off, but that s*cker is absorbed into my skin and now stinking up the room.

    How IS it that the ones that are total failures on one's skin are exactly the ones that are impossible to remove?

    Enjoy the weekend!

    Well, last night I used my very old and questionable Chanel No22 lotion in honor of Sunnyfunny. Applied it to wet skin and towelled off, which removed the rather sour smell that came from the spoiled lotion ingredients...the smell was still there, all floral and oddly mothball-ish, just as I remember it smelling when I bought it over 20 years ago. I recall loving the lotion formulation the best, it has just the drydown and no aldehyde punch. I always felt like such a pampered lady in it!

    I awoke to the Grumpy-inducing news that I lost an ebay auction by 1 bid...it ended at 2am my time and I couldn't stay up to guard from snipers, and so my mint vintage bottle of Vol de Nuit (even in the propeller bottle!) went to some less-worthy buyer. Sigh.

    Feminite de Bois today, just right on this cold and rainy day.

    This morning in Josef Statkus to study... incense scents seem to help with that.
