    Weekend bliss!!!!! To get me jump started, a few sprays of Wazamba by Pd'Empire. Some slightly sweet incense and conifer. The sweetness keeps this unisex, but the notes and feel of it shift a bit masc, which I sometimes like. I feel uber powerful as I clean the house

    Caron - Tabac Blond

    The sexiest scent I know. Warm, glorious amber and leather that inspires and delights.

    SMM, Congratulations on your new assignment! Well done!

    Not much going on this morning, wearing the perennially underrated Baldessarini Ambre, the pairing of whiskey and apple makes it distinct, and it's my most consistent compliment-getter. I'm happy that yesterday I got to work two days' worth of SoTD posts and thus have a day off today. We're already at 1,832 entries as of Thursday! We'll be well over 55,000 by the end of the project, and hopefully I don't drive you all crazy before then.

    Happy weekend to all!

    Spent yesterday afternoon in Futur, wore Madini Sahara to bed. Also got a test in of Kilian Pure Oud before my shower.

    This morning I spritzed on EL Knowing. Been awhile since I've worn this one.

    Q - Shirtless? Does it improve the vacuuming experience?

    Habit Rouge (vintage Eau de Toilette) by Guerlain



    After spending much of the evening last night, reading about Habit Rouge, it seemed almost inevitable to wear it today. I opted for some vintage EdT, which I only own a mini bottle of, as I much prefer the vintage EdC. Nonetheless, I wanted to wear it again to give it another full wearing experience.

    Of course, the first thing that jumps out is the insane longevity (4 hours later, it smells like I just sprayed it on!) and the clashing of the vanilla and dusty/powdery resins. It, of course, reminds me of Shalimar - without the animalic civet / bergamot bite.

    Those of you who love HR EdT, must do yourselves a favor and smell the vintage juice. What a softer, deeper, richer experience it is.

    Congratulations SMM, it seems you are up for a good time at brunch today and how wonderful we can read more reviews from you, albeit on a different subject.
    Happy birhtday to Fleurry's son and happy anniversary to lillybelle!

    Inspired by the War of the Roses thread, I am wearing Nahema PdT for the first time (I had never even smelled this perfume) from a sample sent to me by a generous, good friend.

    What a fine-smelling bunch! SMM - you never fail to amaze!!

    And one of you mentioned this a few posts back and I HAD to scurry out and get it based on the comments here:



    And I gotta say I am not disappointed. A curious dry, fern-y opening with rounded, flowery underpinnings. Then there's a sort of saffron/patch thing going on (I really SHOULD check out the notes....) Helas - not much longevity but since I'm home admiring the snow (SNOW???!!!) that's not a problem.

    Hey, I put some muscle into when I vacuum; plus the sunshine and the woodstove get it pretty hot in here in the morning. But, that's all done now—Yay! I'm showered, and the family's sweaty-stunk-up running clothes are in the washer. I'm kickin' back in Sel de Vetiver + Black Vetyver Cafe AND my honey won a raffle at the 5K, which means we have a bottle of Cabernet chilling on the floor in the back hall. Whoopee!

    Ditto this! Year of the [grrrrrrowl...] tiger!

    I'm doing some sampling today. I THINK what I'm trying are two samples of Dragonfly Blue fragrance oils (Who sent me some profumo.it fragrances with these thrown in? I need to thank you properly and make sure that I know what I'm trying – I have had them for a while!) The samples are labeled Tivoli (a really lovely citrussy blend with, perhaps, some wisteria or hyacinth thrown in?) and Sandalwood. The Sandalwood is just exquisite! I would order some today IF I was sure that it is the Dragonfly Blue and IF I could be sure that the formula is the same as the sample I'm testing.

    Might have to try it sometime as a workout.

    Enjoy the cabernet! Sounds like an early start to V-day to me...

    I'm wearing my Valentine's present today. I got it last night, the night it came in the mail, because my sweet husband can't wait to give me his gifts. So I've never gotten anything on the actual day, though we are getting better about Christmas. You know what, though? There is never a bad time to get a present. ;D

    Davidoff Cool Water Woman Wave (henceforth known as CWWW, or Wave.)



    His tastes run the exact opposite of mine. He loves light, citrus, and aquatic (the latter of which I explained to him last night..). He digs Tabu and Tabac Blond, and has slowly come around on 22. But he picked this one because he wants to smell me in it. I think that is so romantic. He also thought the bottle looked cool.

    This is the first time I've ever worn an aquatic (unless UJALM counts, which I suppose it does, what else could it be? ). I can't pick out the notes yet because this genre is so unfamiliar to my nose, but I think I detect something green in here. A couple reviewers on its BN page say mellon, also, but not very sweet. I'm looking forward to further exploring this uncharted territory.

    I seem to be back into a Hypnotic Poison groove. And listening to Queen...somehow the two are related
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."
