    Not at all a Diva day, here!

    I am home with a cold, drinking tea and smelling Vicks...

    I can't smell a lot but after a hot shower I will put

    Vanille Exquise - Annick Goutal.
    That is if I can find my decant by smell!

    Happy belated birthday to Mo!

    Dora and Tigs -- you guys get better soon. Vitamin C as in oranges and lemons and breathing menthol vapors must become your best allies for the next couple of days, OK? (Or, my Oma's method -- boil potatoes in skins and when they are cooked, put the whole pot on the cutting board on the table. Sit over it and cover your head and your pot with a big bath towel. Breathe deep. There is something in potato skins that clears breathing passages too. This one has always worked for me.)

    Haunani, so you are enjoying your Black Sea? I do too. When Brielle goes back home -- to France -- we might figure something out.

    Miss Guru Tao, no comment about your 5,000+ posts? (Acception speech at the Oscars?)

    I will go with Etat Libre d'Orange Charogne. It is my second wear and I think it suits my mood today.

    Ahh it is the season for runny noses and that makes it painful for those of us who enjoy exercising ours so much. Healing vibes to those feeling poorly or taking care of those feeling poorly.

    Can't keep away from the new Francis Kurkdjian scents.

    Maison Francis Kurkdjian Lumiere Noire pour Femme

    Some of the best perfumers will take a central theme and keep enhancing and re-interpreting it. As a colognoisseur it is fun to watch each iteration of the process. Francis Kurkdjian has now done this with, the 2009 release, Lumiere Noire pour Femme for his Maison Francis Kurkdjian line. M. Kurkdjian has made two previous rose and patchouli mixes in Guerlain Rose Barbare and Juliette Has A Gun Lady Vengeance. in each of these examples he keeps the rose firmly in charge of things and lets the patchouli complement and contrast depending on the other notes present. As a fan of both of those previous fragrances when I read that there would be two rose-patchouli based fragrances in the new line I was excited. The funny thing is where the two scents are Lumiere Noire pour Femme and pour Homme I find myself drawn more to the pour Femme version. The main reason for that is the third player in the pour Femme is narcissus. Anyone who has read my reviews of Neil Morris' scents knows I have an ongoing love affair with narcissus and so it shouldn't be a surprise that M. Kurkdjian's use of it here is what makes me gravitate towards Lumiere Noire pour Femme. The top is a spicy rose laced with pepper and a hint of cumin. This accentuates the spicy characteristics of rose and tamps down, a little bit, the floral aspects. Which are then brought to the fore as narcissus comes in and takes the heart to a lush floral space that is wonderful on me. The base is the patchouli in harmony with the rose and narcissus. The herbal quality of patchouli does a great job of keeping the rose and narcissus reined in and adding the proper contrast to keep Lumiere Noire pour Femme in balance. Lumiere Noire pour Femme has outstanding longevity and above average sillage. This fragrance has become so enjoyable to me that I keep changing the name in my mind and instead of calling it by the name on the label I want to call it Lumiere Rose because, on me, this is a luminous rose.

    Have a Whooping Wednesday everyone.

    On her summer visit - BlackCat was kind enough to gift me with a very generous mini of Guerlain Vetiver.

    I had set it aside and set it aside until I could finally give it the attention it deserved.

    I pulled off the scotch tape keeping the top in place and dabbed the elixir on my skin.

    Oh NO......I think this is heat damaged!!!!!

    The first 5 minutes of my bottle are nothing but alcohol and chemicals.

    I sat on my bed in despair. Spike, the perfumista kitty (and my current avatar), watching silently.

    Then, suddenly, I begin catching a faint whiff of Virginia red clay as the scent begins to crawl out from the alcoholic mire.

    Over the next hour - Vetiver begins to bloom - with the clay, some spices, woods. I would catch vague whiffs of something delicious - never certain whether it was me or the others on the train.

    Now, sitting at my desk, though the sillage has disappeared - I sniff my wrist and get a delicious soft anise/tobacco scent. This drydown makes waiting to wear Vetiver worth the anticipation.

    Good morning everyone. Once I pry my eyes open and hit the shower, I'll be wearing MPG Fleurs des Comores.

    SMM, thanks for the great review. That one sounds interesting to me. I'll surely try to test both of the new frags soon.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm in the Estee Lauder stunner Knowing this morning. I always feel taller when I wear this - I think it must bring out the Paulina in me.

    Somerville Metro Man - that Lumiere Noire pour Femme sounds amazing! I'm normally turned off by a cumin note, but your description makes me think that this might be the fragrance that could open my mind.

    chaya - I used to live in Boston and I've missed it since the day I left (I lived in Southie for a while - twice, actually - in the 10 years I was there. I moved almost every year!) I always look forward to your posts, hoping for a mention of something familiar (I do this with movies, too - location shots of Boston/Cambridge always bring a lump to my throat...sigh.) Oh, and you smell very nice, too!

    Ah, Evangeline !
    Too bad I'm a dunce with a camera ;-)

    I understand the constant moving...
    Until I moved to Southie, 30 years ago, I , too , suffered from the 'student's dilemma'-
    the incessant moving about.

    Your name makes me want to sing that duet from the Last Waltz, with The Band and EmmyLou :
    "Evangeline, Evangeline
    Curses the soul of the Missississippi Queen
    That stole her man away "....

    Ha! I haven't heard that song in ages - thanks for another memory!

    You don't need to take pictures - just a mention of the MFA or Harvard Square or Mass Ave, or even Mass General will make me think, "Oh, I know that place!" And chances are I lived near it at one point!

    Taolady, chayalady, you positively stir my ice cubes here at the BN Comedy Club Lounge.

    Speaking of entertainment, did any of you catch "So You Think You Can Dance" last night? I'm still goosebumpy from Ellenore's grace. Nigel mentioned that her first glide across the stage looked like Cyd Charisse, and it's true. By this morning I'd even forgotten that her heel was caught in the dress for much of the dance with perfect partner Ryan.

    It's a workday here on the Mac and after reading SakeCat's vetiver experience, I'm compelled to grab Sel de Vetiver. It loves skin, and skin I've got.

    Stay under the afghan, Dora, Tigs.
