    Riannon, so glad to hear that you enjoy Sabi! It's a multi-faceted gem of a fragrance, IMO.

    It's a gorgeous Saturday here. I've decided to further my Caron education by sampling two. On the left hand is Farnesiana. I'm disappointed, as I was quite sure I'd like this one. On me, the screaming PlayDoh accord provides a full back-to-kindergarten experience. On my right hand I have Montaigne. This one I am enjoying. I'm getting a mix of bitter orange, powdery florals, and vanilla. It's like a lovely grown-up dessert of some sort.

    Edit: I like Farnesiana better after an hour, but it still doesn't send me. Montaigne is getting mellower and even lovelier. Any fans of this one out there?

    First of all, a BIG Thank You for all the sweet and supportive messages and pms. Your warmth, caring, and compassion towards someone you've never even seen is truly astounding. The clouds of 22 aren't so bad, either ((((S))))

    Mo, bless your heart. I love that you've kept that lotion around for so long, and it was so sweet of you to put some on for me last night.

    Ugh, this week is going to be so not fun. But at least I won't be raining extra unpleasantness upon my dear coworkers, they've got enough to deal with already.
    I've been trying to get out the door for a bit of retail therapy (if your DH buys a new PS3, you should be able to get a new purse and a new pair of boots, right?) but my behind is firmly attatched to this chair. At least I'm showered and dressed....

    I'm wearing my go-to when I'm racked with indecision scent, 22 year old Mits.

    Have a lovely Saturday everyone.

    Quarry, best of luck with the backed up septic systems.... ew ew ew

    And welcome back, Kasae

    SotE is RL Romance Always Yours, which I'm sampling... Nothing special, I'm afraid, so I'm going to scrub this and use my comfy Allure...

    SotA following my walk is vintage C&S Rose, with thanks to scentemental for the sample. This is unbelievably better than the current version-- what were they thinking remaking it???!!!

    Baldessarini tonight. A quiet but muscular fragrance composed of four notes: Bitter Orange, Green Mint, Douglas Fir and Tobacco.

    "No"
    "Are you a wizard?"
    "No"
    "Are you a man?"

    I too am terribly indecisive today. Probably because I'm in the mood for a fall fragrance, but it's hot outside. I definitely live in the wrong part of the world for my weather preferences.

    Tonight is a very belated fancy birthday dinner for DH with his in-laws (they were belated, not me ). I want to wear Amoureuse, but it's not always the best companion to food and wine. Hmmmm, maybe Une Rose (love those wine dregs!).

    Have a good one, all.

    Sunnyfunny, I'm sorry to hear of your uncle's passing.

    Quarry, I seem to have missed some of the details of your septic system troubles, but I am going on record as saying I am so glad I am not on a septic system any longer, and that I hope your situation is rectified soon.

    SOTD is 31 Rue Cambon. Take good care, all.

    Maybe...

    Anyway, I'm testing Hermèssences today:

    Morning:



    Vanille Galante, a fruity floral at heart, but with vanilla cupcakes instead of fruit.

    Afternoon:



    Poivre Samarcande, Pepper, cumin, and chile powder over wood and leather, but really light and airy. Good, but not $240 good...

    BlackCat, let's switch locations for a while....it's already snowed here twice and today's weather could only be described as wicked: wet snow, lots of wind causing fallen, water-logged leaves to whip you in the face. At least I won't need blush!

    Very indecisive tonight about what to wear to work. The atmosphere is highly charged as staff is divided on all these ?forced? H1N1 vaccinations......Plus Que Jamais is the only thing that'll help me get through these next 12 hours.

    Hope you're all having a great evening

    Sorry Miss Tao it does not quite work for you!

    Hugs to Sunnyfunny, dear.

    We came from Canada, I was smelling good in Hors le Monde Shiloh. Then I was smelling good in YSL Baby Doll. And today I was smelling even better in Premier Figuier. What type of crazy people go to Canada on a vacation at the end of October they have been asking us. To see how other people live, to enjoy Pepe la Pieu voice of a disk jockey on the radio and see how coins are being made, to control Mr T in the zones with Max 100 (km/hr), to marvel the architecture and get lost a couple of times on the streets with one way traffic, to bump into million nationalities and eat pirogies and Ukranian Kielbasa, to pay twice as much money as here for a candy bar (Mr.Big and Mars -- not manufactured here in the US -- are my favorites!) if not for everything else, to live in a big city, finally! To appreciate the gist of the saying "There is no place like home" again.

    I vote for Une Rose, though that Amoureuse that you love so much is a fantastic special occasion choice. Good to see you, BlackCat!

    Twolf, so glad to hear that you had a good and interesting time.

    Taolady, you may have been the person who sent me the Montaigne sample. If so, thank you! It's a real goodie!

    My SotE is Poivre by Caron. This one is very special to me.

    *Laughing my butt off!!* Thanks Rogalal, I needed that. Ooohh... Poivre Samarcande's impressive stuff, but that price was a stopping point... for now...

    Sunnyfunny, as I understand it by the rules of married people everywhere, shoes and boots are a perfectly reasonable trade off.

    Oh, Twolfie, that sounds like the perfect getaway. You deserve a chance to unwind. Its one of those things people need as badly as food and water, but just don't seem to have the time for.

    Doing a little unwinding myself, with the help of a very large glass of wine. Soon time for a sound scrubbing (after a long day at Dunkin Donuts you wouldn't believe the places I find sprinkles ) and for my SotE...

    Lovethescents, I'm up for switching if you are! Although a real winter would probably kill me, seeing as I've never really gone through one. (I lived in Boise for a bit, but the coldest it got was 25F, with no wind, so not really COLD cold.)

    Haunani, thanks! I ended up deciding to use only a body lotion/oil so as to appreciate the food more. Unfortunately, I picked Alien oil, which (I had forgotten) is very strong, defeating the purpose. I should have gone for Une Rose or Amoureuse. Sigh.

    So I decided to go whole hog today and test my other Hermèssence samples, because I ended up scrubbing Vanille Galante (sorry cupcakes!) and Poivre Samarcande only lasted a couple of hours, so to finish out the day:

    Evening:



    Paprika Brasil

    Night:



    Brin de Réglisse

    I know this is insane, but every time I go into the Hermes store, I see all those Hermèssence bottles lined up and they look so cool next to each other, and I just want all of them, just for the sake of displaying them. But the vanilla was too girly, the pepper interesting but not worth the money, the Paprika odd then really cool and then odd again, while Brin de Réglisse struck me as artful in an unwearable way. Now I just need to get my hands on some samples of the rose and the osmanthus ones...

    I am laid low with a virus at the moment, but had I not been doped with Night Nurse at the time of your post, I would certainly have observed that to apply Jicky at a time when the sanitary infrastructure is clearly straining to do its job is a clear case of adding insult to injury!
