    GOOD LUCK LIBERTINE!!! Don't worry if you poo yourself, they'll just think you're wearing Jicky.

    Early morning with a second to spare so I wanted to say hi to everybody!! I've been gifted an absolutely tantalizing bundle of goodies, ((HUGS Dianne!!)) and wearing my jaw-dropping new fav:

    Cristalle Eau Vert
    Honeysuckle, Magnolia, Lemon, Bergamot, Neroli, Jasmine, White Flowers

    Glory Be!! Light, sparkling, uplifting... its like I'm wearing Springtime!! I'm a sucker for 5 of the notes listed above, and a newly converted follower of the other 2.

    On another note: Daniel rescued a kitten yesterday!! The little darling's been working her kitty-magic on him since, so he's keeping her, much to the dismay of the established cat.

    Look how cute she is!!! Its making it much harder to stay away, knowing the next time I visit him, she'll be just as big as the other cat. Very sneaky of him.


    OOPS!! Gotta go!! GOODLUCKANDHAVEAGREATDAYEVERYONE!!!!!
    <3 ... I'm blind crazy in love... <3

    EM - what a precious kitty!
    Therese - I hope you feel better. At least you know you smell marvelous. I join you and Roberto in the Sables love.

    Sotd is ETRO Etra. Love the combo of tangy/sharp notes (geranium, rosewood) with sweeter, richer ones (vanilla, sandalwood)

    Happy Friday, all!

    The last Friday I will work in 2009, woo hoo. I go to four-day weeks or less until 2010.
    The weather has been positively crazy the last few days from wind driven downpour to temps near 70 to back into the 40's. I love New England Weather.

    Wanted to wear one of my new Hermessences today and it felt like a vetiver day.

    Hermes Hermessence Vetiver Tonka

    I have really enjoyed the Hermessence line from Hermes as a concept and in the execution. Jean-Claude Ellena has done a wonderful job at exploring the interplay of some of perfumery's signature ingredients and making something fresh out of them. Case in point is one of the original Hermessence releases from 2004, Vetiver Tonka.

    Vetiver has to be right up there with patchouli and sandalwood as one of the most used and versatile notes in the perfumer's toolbox. Vetiver can be used to add edge or a green feel but rarely does it come off smooth. In Vetiver Tonka, M. Ellena turns this sharp edged note into a thing of cashmere like softness and shows just how versatile a note vetiver can be.

    The top of Vetiver Tonka begins with the vetiver feel most men are familiar with. In fact it opens almost identically to Guelrain Vetiver. Almost immediately that changes as M. Ellena chooses to blend two gourmand notes of roasted hazelnut and dried fruit. This has the effect of accentuating the natural nuttiness that vetiver has but too often gets lost when it is paired with more powerful notes. Here the feel comes off like smelling a nut roaster from a distance. The fruit accord could be jarring but it adds a little necessary sweetnes to keep this on the smooth side. The base is all tonka and its richness really brings the vetiver's suave and debonair side out. The now very intense vetiver is truly matched by the tonka making this comforting at the last.

    Vetiver Tonka has average longevity and sillage on my skin. It is a typical light Ellena compsoition but it has a little more depth than most of his other works.

    Vetiver Tonka is what happens when the most talented perfumers decide to look at the tried and true and make something bright and new, it can be eye-opening and wonderful and Vetiver Tonka is all that.

    Have a Freaky Friday everyone.

    I'm really a doggie person, but that kitty is CUTE! Good for Daniel! Exquisitely ~ maybe he'll name this sweet little striped fur ball after you???? At any rate, you smell good!

    Labdanum 18 by Le Labo today, still on my Maurice Roucel kick. Not only do I regularly butcher the names of perfumes (and their creators), I just can't seem to get the word "labdanum" off my tongue without tripping! When a perfumes smells THIS fine, I guess it doesn't matter !

    Hi all --

    Lightning "in and out" posting for me today... Didn't get to wear my SoTE yesterday, so it's today's fragrance: Michael Storer Winter Star. I'd forgotten what a strange (and strangely compelling) scent this is... Not for every day, but definitely a keeper, especially around this time of year.

    Winter Star notes: Karanal (woods+caramel), Peru balsam, Benzoin Siam, Tolu, Labdanum, Carnation, Lavender absolute, musks, Bergamot orange oil and Oakmoss absolute.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    {from the site)..."a sunny, watery and enveloping white floral scent. Clementine and ginger, freesia, tuberose, nectar of rose, orange blossom and hydrangea are warmed with subtle woods, black pepper and musk..."

    All these Lili's I've tried so far have average sillage and last about four hours. In the EDT. Dunno about the EDPs.

    Hope the interview went well, Libertine! Another of us who didn't make the BN lunch, though I can't wait to hear all about it...

    Hugs to all those laid low...

    I am testing Michel Germain Sexual - now don't all laugh, please. It isn't half bad, as a matter of fact. The carnation note settles down quite quickly and it is smooth and creamy the rest of the way with just a hint of spice.

    Mostly wearing my new Ebay purchase of Hugo Boss Deep Red. I have next to no time for most of the line, but this is a fine exception. Lightly fruity and clean, yet at the same time slinky and musky and a bit vanilla-y. This could work for day or night. I am rather impressed.
