    Serge Lutens Louve. It has a brief moment as a dead ringer for Jergen's Lotion (the original cherry-almond one) and then morphs into a most dreamy, tranquil fragrance. Lovely and quiet.

    Notes: almond, rose petals, fruity notes, jasmine petals, amber, musk, vanilla powder

    Best to all!

    Mazzolari Vetiver - From Luckyscent: Mazzolari's Vetiver is a masterful composition that opens with a spontaneous, bittersweet burst of citrus orange, bergamot and lemon. As they fade to a whisper, a woody vetiver stakes its claim, enhanced by the arrival of spicy sweet nutmeg. Never heavy, Vetiver is a full-bodied, solid fragrance, one that brings to mind driftwood browns, dried herbal greens and deep yellow sunshine. At its base is an elusive tobacco and clean sandalwood…fragrant, rich anchors to this captivating, woody combination.

    Coromandel by Chanel, my second sample - even though I think I knew I loved it after about the first 30 min

    Have a wonderful day everyone!

    I don't know if I adore it quite as much as you do, but it's definitely an interesting one. Long-lasting, too, for how subtle it is.
    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.

    Songes today, it has that fluffy sweet softness that is answering my desire for a more voluptuous scent, waiting to make up my mind about Hypnotic Poison and/or Angel.

    Funny you caught that detail about your Songes, and made a quick subsequent post! When I read through this thread, and saw "Songes", my first thought was YLANG-YLANG!!! Songes is gorgeous.

    Ylang-ylang and I have recently become friendly, our relationship wasn't always so polite! My most favorite is Parfumeur Maitre et Gantier (MPG's) Fleur des Comores. It is very much along the lines of Vanilla Galante - maybe a bit less sheer.

    Just burnt a batch of bacon.
    Still have the son home w/H1N1...please don't make me play ANOTHER game of Monopoly! I'll try to convince him to switch to a quicker paced game...cards maybe...how about Uno or War???
    Waiting to hear results on Magic's bloodwork, put a call into the Vet early...still waiting. Poor puppy is drooling for that burnt bacon I think his appetite is coming back!

    For now, I'm hopping into the shower and spritzing on some refreshing Anisia Bella - many thanks to 30 Roses Such kindness!

    Oh, Hebe! Read your commentary about Insolence - it was superb! So glad it arrived and you are enjoying it! (I forgot to include the Turin/Sanchez review... I'll have to pm it to you later!)

    Those pretty pix have me smacking my lips, kumquat.

    Ubu, I'll hold back on the hugging until the germs and bacon smoke clear out. Better health and better days have to be just around the corner, dear one. Can't stand Monopoly myself. Don't suppose he'd be willing to play Passport to Perfume with Mom?

    Here you go, Veuve:

    Vanille Galante

    top notes
    Green note, Ylang Ylang

    heart note
    Lily, spicy notes

    base note
    Salicylates, Sandalwood, touch of vanilla

    Now I will have to try Fleur des Comores, in my quest to leave no ylang ylang stone unturned...

    My late afternoon/evening scent is Donna Karan's Cashmere Mist. I just tried it for the first time this summer and had to have a bottle. I wear it fairly often. It's a cozy scent for me, light but very long lasting.

    I'm off to feed the dog, and later I'm making oyster stew for dinner. It's fattening, but so what. Fresh shucked oysters were on manager's special, and we need something really wonderful. I don't think my dog will be happy with "second dinner" tonight. If she doesn't like the way second dinner smells she gets a disgusted look on her face as she toddles off down the hall. That dog is a piece of work.

    Have a good evening!

    Today, right after work I went to see Diana Krall and band in concert. Great musicians, I must say, including Miss Krall herself. Lots of improvisation, many soli, some jokes and laughs and lots of fun.
    Of course I had to wear something classy; so Amouage Dia it was for me today.

    Have a great evening!

    I'm a little under the weather today. Thank goodness I didn't have to work! I slept late and took TWO naps. Feeling better tonight, I spritzed on just a little Etro Heliotrope. It's almost like wearing a hug ...

    Began my day with a tiny spritz of 28 La Pausa (thanks, VM!) then head to the Spa de Guerlain. Had a chance to try the Boise Torride which is, like all the other carnal elixirs, verrrrrry sweet. It isn't quite for me but it is popular so far, according to the lovely SA. I bought a bottle of Hiver en Russie and spritzed on way too much Bois d'Armenie. I think I'll need some Bd'A in the near future ;-)

    I'm so excited because on Nov 24, Sylvaine Delacourte (artistic director of Guerlain) is coming to the Spa and I have an appointment to meet with her to discuss Guerlains. Frankly, I'm completely intimidated. What will I ask? Will I sound ridiculous? Will my little toddler be in a good mood? So much research to do before hand! Any thoughts or suggestions?

    I love Diana Krall! How nice that you got to see her live. I've never seen her live, but I saw her concert that was taped in Paris on TV (PBS), last year I think, and I was so impressed with the musicians, including her, and the quality of the show. You must have had a great time.
