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?
    Ask her to please make more Djedi!

    Hi all,

    Today I tested Amouage Lyric Man



    Crispy citrus on top, quickly opening up into a spiced tea smell. Underneath the tea, rose crept in so quietly I almost didn't see it coming, but kept coming until it took over the heart of the scent. This is bright and fresh, but with a tiny touch of powder. I'm thinking some of the tea illusion may be caused by jasmine (I've been going nuts for jasmine tea lately, so I may be subconsciously linking the two smells together).

    It's nice, and unisex, if on the feminine end of the spectrum. There's a moment in the progression of Tom Ford's Champaca Absolute that I've always liked, that's a spicy tea mixed with the citrusy champaca (unfortunately, this few minutes isn't really worth the hours of bubblegum champaca, for me). Lyric Man smells like that moment, but with rose.

    I don't think I'm ready for a full bottle of this, though. It is awfully expensive, and this is nice, but it's not really speaking to me...

    Good evening all, love the talk of Ylang-Ylang. Did you know that it is the only essential oil that has a top, heart and base note all by itself. It is nature's perfect parfum.
    I am sending all types of positive vibes to all in need.

    I had to go to doctor today and was diagnosed with Carpal tunnel syndrome in my right hand. Doctor said it is due to my work in the new house; mostly painting and plastering. I will now need to wear a splint for the next eight weeks. If the house does not kill me, it will be quite the homestead.

    Ubu, I hope your sweet one will be be well soon and lay off the Monopoly for your sake.

    Chaya lovey, Gott Sie danke, you are mobile and bouncy after that type of horror. love you to pieces, even though i am so lax in keeping in touch.

    Potiron, so pleased you enjoyed DK in concert. Her voice is glorious, i would love to experience her live, hopefully one day.

    Today i wore Rose Aoud by Micallef (thanks to ComDiva the enabler) which i am so crazed for and like Touch have no clue how i will ever find it again, or afford it for that matter. Still, i love it; the only Aoud scent i have ever liked, let alone have come to love.

    Tonight i am wearing vintage Isadora extrait again. not only is the scent glorious beyond belief, but the bottle is exquisite also. I always feel like such a "lady" when i use it, as opposed to the hausfrau i have become.

    Sending love and hugs to all of you.

    Veuve, you have this fragrance pegged. And VM, your description is "spot on", as they say in your country.

    I love Vanille Galante, but it took two or three tries to reach that conclusion. It certainly wasn't what I expected! Do test it more than once, Veuve!

    Wow is right, MikeP! Une Rose is, hands down, the most "wow-inducing" fragrance I've ever tried. My husband loves it on me, too. What does yours think?

    Speaking of roses, I spent the day in the shimmering and glorious Rose Musc by Sonoma Scent Studio. That Laurie Erickson sure knows how to do roses!

    Brielle, Carpal Tunnel gets the bestest of us! The hardest working, I mean. Mine is at bay now, but spring is coming...

    Them lemons are bright, kumquat!

    Love to 30Roses for "I do not know what else but it smells nice"!

    Lilybelle, that's a fancy dog you have got. Good girl.

    EM -- happy birthday, DD -- happy birthday too dear. Am I the first to say it?

    The trip was nice if not very tiring. Every time I say Never again and every time I hop into the car and we hit the road. We broke down in Marshall, MO -- O'Reily had the part and we had all the tools. I was helping to fix the similar problem on another vehicle once before, so the delay in the trip was about 3 hours but we still came home around midnight. There is no place like home.

    Today I received a package crammed with samples from Europe. TDC Oriental Lounge for the evening, Vanille Havana smelled sort of musky and wary out of the vial -- not want I wanted tonight for R&R in front of the computer.

    What?! It's Darkdreams' special day? DD, you are one sneaky gal! We can't let the day go by without a dark and dreamy cake just for you. Quick, blow out the candles and we can all gather and have a piece together!

    Been ill with a cold for the past few days. I'm only wearing Woods-of-Windsor Forget-Me-Not talcum powder after a steamy bath. I can actually smell it!

    Wishing you the happiest of birthdays, DarkDreams!
