    Dzing! for me today.

    Leather, leather and more intense leather. I also get creamy sweet floral after 6 hours wearing it.
    Like strolling in a zoo with a bouquet and cotton candy in my hands.

    Have a lovely weekend everyone.

    Yves St. Laurent "Y" for a trip to the hairdressers and then a shopping trip.
    This green chypre is just too beautiful for words. It's the kind of scent that
    in Del Boy's words would "knock 'em bandy!"

    Kewart- I love you.

    Skanky at work, in Madame X.
    It loves me back-
    Luca and Mr. Malle both enjoyed it on me; when I sent Vero samples years ago, she liked it so much, I sent her a big ole bottle for her birthday ;-)

    Hugs to my dearests who continue to struggle...
    I'm with you.
    Eventually- this has GOT to pass !

    May your weekend veer from the ordinary long enough to embrace unconventional, impractical, or unusual pursuits...

    For today's SnS, Montale Dew Musk, from a sample...



    Orange Blossom, Pomegranate, Musk, Patchouly, Ylang-Ylang


    I get no flowers, no fruits, no pachouli... Only MUSK!!!! And it's skanky...

    My samples, ordered ages ago i seems (well certainly weeks at least), have not arrived in time for SnS animalics. If they come later today, Aoud Cuir d'Arabie, Bandit, and Cuir d'Iris will be tested. If not, I'll throw on some Bal a Versailles or Jolie Madame or Yatagan.

    For now I'll start the day with something non-animal... Lalique's quantum singularity of green, Encre Noire.

    Chaya, I very nearly picked Madame X this morning. Couldn't decide between that, AL Chypre Noir or Film Noir. So I picked Bal a Versailles. Go figure! Might wear some Madame later today, though.

    Blizzard. Ugh.

    Eau D’Hermès for SnS. Love the aromatic, hesperidic opening that slides into dry, warm, animalic notes.

    Best to all!

    Eva, I love your posts every day, but this one's perfect for an Animalic SnS Saturday.

    I'm snowed in!! Got two feet of the stuff just last night!! So I'm going to be shoveling... a lot...

    ... BUT I'll be doing it in ...

    Le Labo Rose 31

    (Thank you, Asha! ) This potion's potent enough to melt some snow on its own! And I gotta get my skank on now, because it'd feel a little out of place at my nephew's first birthday party.

    Chaya, honey, hugs and snuggles.

    And that goes for you too!

    I am traveling this weekend, so don't have my full arsenal with me. So the closest I have to animalic is Yves Saint-Laurent Kouros. Have a great Saturday everyone!

    Good Saturday morning to everyone. So glad to see the sun shining again in this part of the world.

    Am wearing Enlèvement au Sérail from Parfums MDCI. I love the way it feels warm and embracing w/o overtaking the room.

    I'm wearing Jicky edt for animalic Sniff 'n Speak this morning. This is my favorite form of Jicky. It's bright and clear and uplifting, with just a hint of skanky civet to make it earthy. It lasts a long time on me, and gets more intensely vanillic & animalic with time rather than fading away. I fell in love with Jicky edt at first sniff last year, or maybe it was the year before that. It's in my top ten list of desert island fragrances.

    Then, I was craving patchouli yesterday because I passed a woman in the grocery store who was wafting pure hippie patchouli behind her. That's a smell I love, although I don't really like fragrances that have that heavy patchouli blast. I once had a patcholi plant and that was nice. So now I'm craving pure patchouli oil, but I don't have any. What I do have, however, thanks to Ubu, is a decant of Keiko Mecheri's Patchoulissime, which is the prettiest patchouli fragrance I've ever smelled. Patchouli smells like a warm stable to me, so in my book it also qualifies as animalic, even if it isn't animal in origin.

    Hugs to everybody ailing, feeling down, or as sick of winter as I am. Chins up, spring will be here soon. ♥ xo

    Miller Harris L'Air de Rien for sniffa. Mmmmmm.... cozy! I know it has been compared to dirty knickers but what can I say? For me this is definitely a 'your milage may very' scent. I find it smells like your own reasonably clean, toasty warm body when you wake up on a Sunday morning and you're snuggled up under your duvet in your flannel PJs. Sexy bedhead perfume.

    Lovethescents - good luck for tomorrow. x
    Kewart - you made me laugh out loud!
    Chaya - I bet you are turning heads in Madame X today. I am picturing you in that and hot pink scrubs, with your honeyed voice saying something hilarious and vaguely shocking. Mwa! Who bets Chaya gets at least one mystery valentine's card this year?
    Joe - Kouros is the full-throated yodel of the 19 year old boys I used to go dancing with back in the 80s. I absolutely love that scent, it's so warm and comforting.
    Squiz - Oooh, have YOU got some digging to do! Mind you, if you're wearing Rose Poivree you might find you get admirers lining up to help you. (I'm sure Daniel would be front of the queue though.)

    Have a lovely day and waft that skank!
    love to all
