    SJP Covet for a damp and muddy charity walk. It does have a foetid, vegetal quality to it, I suppose.

    That made me laugh, Riannon. Because just as I was reading your post I was thinking to myself "hmm I think I need another "Schoggistängeli" (sort of a long praliné)". But now I'll recondsider.
    Btw, I love your avartar.

    SotD was Amouage Dia. SotE is Chanel CdR inspired by Lightgreen22's thread. I tried this a year ago and found it nice but it was my least favourite of the Exclusifs I had tried. But now, a year later it suddenly hit me: This is good stuff, real good stuff. Thanks Lightgreen22 for bringing my attention back to CdR.

    I'm failing to celebrate Finnish independence day properly (we packed the mini flag away already), but I did have a glass of bubbly last night.

    I forced myself to break away from Alien because the obsession was getting a bit unhealthy. I'm in Kenzo Amour instead. It's very nice, but it's no Alien. What the hell is wrong with me?

    Although I think this is a perfume that smells better outdoors, I was wearing
    Voleur de Roses today, a busy Sunday spent in the house, with a lot of cooking and ironing.

    Congrats to all our Finnish BNers, and Happy Sinterklaas (however you spell it) to all who continue to celebrate.Happy Independence Day, Finland!

    Dimitri - Mira's work is spectacular. I'm rather partial to St. Catherine... Oh dear. I just made a strange and not entirely comfortable connection with my love of fireworks...

    Believe I will make it scent triplets with Petruccijc and RHM inParfums de Nicolai Maharadjah

    Hi all!

    My Lutens-a-thon continues unabated, with a morning dosage of Clair de Musc.



    Then, as Clair got down to its quiet basenotes, I put some Sa Majesté la Rose on my other arm.

    Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??

    Happy Independence Day, Finns!

    Count me among those completely amazed by your wife's work, Dimitri. Wow. Stunning icons.

    ((((Ineespenes,)))) here's to a smoother start tomorrow.

    Lol, Novis, just letting you know that I know that you know that I know that you know. Being enlightened is good, yes?

    Happy Sinterklaas Day to you all, too! My sisters and I put our shoes out every year until we moved out, and even after my dad would call us and casually mention that St. Nicholas had been by.

    Today I'm testing my very first Bond, Madison Soiree (thank you, rtamara! ). DH immediately liked it (total bonus, as you all know ). It is very pretty-- soapy, clean, sparkly in sort of the same way Eau Premiere is. I'm not really a soapy-clean fume type of gal, but this one might be fb-worthy. Anyway, anything DH likes deserves a second look!

    Hope you're all having a relaxing Sunday.

    Happy Independence Day to our Finnish friends, and happy Sinterklaas and Samichlaus!

    Mira really does gorgeous work.

    Nuka, I went through an Alien addiction phase. It passed, though. I still love the smell on my clothes (particularly of the oil), but not as much on me any more.

    SotD: Spiritueuse Double Vanille. Two days in a row of gourmands is probably too much for me, especially because it's not my favorite category. But I was going to a friend's holiday baking party, and SDV seemed perfect.

    The good news at the party was that a friend was wearing a distinctive chypre, which turned out to be Paloma. The bad news is that during our greeting hug, it somehow got on my sweater. It's too strong for my tastes, and doesn't go very well with SDV.
    For sale: JL Scherrer parfum (reduced price) and more!

    I thought I would celebrate the 1st snow of the season with a bit of Michael Storer's Winter Star. If ever there was a frag that says winter, this is it.

    I'm wearing Bulgari Blu Notte today. I finally went to see the movie New Moon with a few co-workers. (Loved it!)

    Dimitri, thanks for sharing Mira's beautiful icons. I really enjoyed seeing them.

    Happy Independence Day to all the Finnish BNers and happy Sinterklaas too!

    Mira's paintings are gorgeous--I also am attracted to St. Catherine. I have always loved medieval and renaissnce style painting, and I know I am not the only one!

    SotD was a 4-way iris test:

    Van Cleef & Arpels Bois d'Iris--iris starts rooty but later turns creamy with buzzy woods and some powdery vanilla

    Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist--iris is rooty and damp, with notes of dirt and rotting wood chips

    Chanel 28 La Pausa--rooty but refined iris that is also a bit leafy-green, and with a drydown similar to Bel Respiro (soft musk)

    And my comparator Dior Homme EDT--more balanced than Bois d'Iris, but also more masculine. Women may prefer the pretty and light fragrance from the VC&A, which ultimately seems like a less soapy Prada Infusion d'Iris.

    SotN is Tom Ford Amber Absolute, my first time spraying from an atomizer. Big mistake! Turns out AA is more concentrated than most extraits I own. This one will have to be dabbed from now on!
