    Oh, that Boston group, flaunting their attractiveness. How you do seduce us with your friendliness. I will try to emulate Tao and not envy debborah and Leah. I do pity Pomander though—so close and yet so far?

    Coconut, I'm sorry to hear you're STILL suffering.

    Coconut … I'm wearing, in the form of Chopard Casmir. I wish I could mix the parts I like best about Cadjmere and Casmir. Cadjmere's topnotes are amazing and interesting, its heart notes confuse me, but the drydown's divine. Casmir is too sweet and foody upfront, but also has an amazing drydown.

    I'm in Borneo 1834 and reveling in patchouli/cocoa powder. Whee! I tried Theorema again recently and it was a lot better than I'd remembered. I think I may just be maturing. Either that or my hormones are on the fritz and it's warped my nose (hey- it happened when I was pregnant, so it makes sense to me). (No, don't get excited - no chance of more baby birds since they took me in and 'fixed me' this summer.)

    We have a massive spike of freezing weather from Russia zapping us here in Middle Europe and the thermometer is not predicted to ever rise above zero this week. Snow is forecast for the weekend. SQUEEEEEEE!!!!!! I love the cold! WAY better than being hot and sticky. Finally, my chance to wear some of my Enormous Jumper Stash.

    Hugs to all.

    Hello everyone, and thanks for making this thread such a feast for the senses!

    I'm in L'Arte di Gucci....a gorgeous, passionate and discontinued floral (rose) chypre, this one from the early 90s. I've had the same big bottle since its release, but I very recently was able to back-up my supply so I can actually fearlessly and lavishly enjoy it again, and that's what I'm doing!


    You all have a great week!

    Wow, music, glorious images, the Boston get-together report, and good moods all around!

    I'm wearing the pillow-soft beauty that is Note Ambree. In a good mood but still wishing I could have slept in for a couple of hours!

    Roberto, how could I have not commented on the music of the morning Afterall, look at my user name! Of course, it is after my cat, but my cat was named after the instrument - and the mellow, calming beauty it produces and the mood it evokes.

    Thanks again Roberto!

    Sounds like a wonderful time in Boston. Thanks for sharing the details with us. Lovely!

    SOTD: Agent Provocateur


    Rec'd a bottle from an MUA swap. I chose it unsniffed, and it is/was perhaps my best gamble yet. Beautiful.

    Home this morning (what's left of it!) with my little girl. No kindergarten today - she has a fever but seems like no other symptoms? Odd. She's also not quite as active as usual...

    SotE, more Vent Vert, but kicked up the girlieness a notch and went with the middle formulation.

    Patchouli Narcisse sounds FABULOUS--two of my favorite notes in one place! It goes on my test list pronto

    SotD was Dior Homme and SotN is Helmut Lang EDP. I also own HL in parfum, and after wearing the parfum as SotN fairly frequently in the last few weeks, I find that the EDP seems much more angular in comparison. As a result, the parfum seems more intimate and quiet, the EDP seems more energizing.

    Yesterday evening, I managed to step on and destroy my sample of Serge Lutens Un Bios Vanille. In cleaning it up, I managed to smear enough on myself to count as an evening wearing, so I guess it goes here...



    Today for work, I wore the Serge Lutens version of Feminite du Bois...



    ...followed by an evening in Santal Blanc.



    Oh, and consider me jealous of the nice off-computer friendship you Boston folks have, and Happy Birthday to Scentsitivity!

    Ah, hello darlings

    Once again i am bringing up the rear, so to speak. Always the last to the daily part, so it seems.

    I will just elaborate on all the wonderful things shared by my fellow Bostonian BNers. Yesterday was a small glimmer of heaven on earth. The joy of Indian buffet on a sunday morning with such dear friends and two fabulous new ones, Deborah and Leah, is hard to top. But let me tell you the conversation was so fabulous and stimulating that we could have been eating McDonalds "Big Breakfast" and it would have felt heavenly.
    Seeing Chaya was wonderful beyond words, because even though we live less than 15 minutes away, by car, from one another, the craziness of life keeps us from seeing each other as often as we would like. She truly is the personification of all things warm, fuzzy, cozy and loving in this world. Bless her dear soul always.
    Of course ComDiva is like having the spirit of parties past and present and future roll in all at the same time; she is so full of life, joy, excitement and just a feel great person, well...to know her is truly to love her. Just make sure to fasten your seat-belt when she arrives.
    SMM is as always the jolliest and warmest snuggle-bunny to grace the earth and such a treat to spend time with, well it is always sad when it comes to a close. He really has such an exuberance and gusto it is hard to compare to anyone, or anything else.
    Leah was such a lovely, wonderful, witty, joy of a woman to meet, well i can hardly wait to spend time with her again.
    Deborah is truly a peaceful and tranquil, yet quite funny, soul that i could not help but enjoy watching her try on scent; when it really worked for her, you could tell she went to her Zen place. I am so looking forward to sharing another afternoon with her, hopefully soon.

    Now as for Neil and David, well i could just sandwich snuggle with those two all day long and talk shop, and of course sniff till i found Nirvana; they both always smell sooooo delicious and make me feel so well loved. I have known Neil for many years and he is just the most wonderfully delicious huggable bear in the world, i'm a tall gal and he makes me feel like a little pixie being enveloped in the embrace of a fragrant wood. I just adore him as a person and as an artist i am always in utter awe of his creativity.
    Now as was mentioned, the fragrance that was inspired by SMM is a treasure to experience. It literally made my eyes roll back in a swoon that was palpable. The Patchouli Narcisse is "the" creation of this year. Guerlain be damned with the muck you present us. I came home in a cloud of Neil's newest potion and even hubby and mam started to swoon. Not to mention that i started the day in Takashimaya, and doused myself with: Le Parfum d'Odette, Zephyr, Le Parfum d'Ida, Moulin Rouge (mama wants this one very badly now) and a bit of Le Parfum C'est ma Vie and drop of Vanille Rosé. So as you can see, i (who am the vintage lover extraordinaire) am so enamored of Neil's fragrances cannot begin to tell you how much i adored having them all in one place at one time. Now, truth be told, i do not love all of his scents wholeheartedly, his Café is not my cup of tea, do you like the pun. Bu that is only because i am not a coffee lover. I will say though, if coffee could taste as pleasant as the scent smells, well maybe i would become a coffee lover.

    Hope i have not rambled too much.

    Last night's scent was Prowl by Neil, a masterpiece of our times

    Today's scent was a gift from a sweet Channukah Angel and it was Rêve Indien by Fragonard. It is one of my favorites, so i was clicking my heals all day.

    Tonight i am in another gift from a sweet BNer, it is the new Francis Kirkdjian Cologne pour le Soir and it is "FABULOUS". It is so soothing and so relaxing...well it lives up to its name.

    I have droned on enough now, love and hugs to all and HUGE thanks to all my darlings who i spent one of my best days with (in ages) yesterday. mwah!!
