    Cadjmere, wafting vanilla, coconut, sandalwood.

    Good for you, Baldufita, for kicking things off.

    I feel ya, Tao. For several months I put some Iris Noir on every single night. Then I was over it. Funny how this happens with a fragrance.

    I like the lines in the woman's dress in petruccijc’s ad.

    Let's take a corner booth at Starbucks, Lessa, and not come out until we're ready.

    Woke up this morning with a hint of Angel body lotion around me from yesterday. It was a Valentine's gift from my husband.

    Still, I decided it would be a good idea to wear Magical Moon for work anyway. It worked! But I don't think I'll do it again.

    Good Morning, Everyone!

    I wore Clinique Wrappings body lotion last night but awoke with a headache this morning. Don't really care for this. So I am wearing Chanel Eau Premier as my SOTD today. Mmmmmm...that's better!

    Well, I don't go back to work until tomorrow, but I'm dreading it, too. So I will see all three of you ladies at the coffee shop early a.m. OK? And Cello, I think I might go with Mauboussin tomorrow – thanks for the inspiration!

    You know, Ubu, in that poll about advertising, I reported that I wasn't swayed by ads, but I have to admit that a good artistic poster or print ad does sometimes interest me in a fragrance. Those Caron ads of the past, for example, are just swoon-worthy!

    Oh! My SotD! It is sunny and supposed to get to almost 70° here! I reached for my new bottle of Eau de Campagne. I'm just LOVING it!

    I'm wearing Hypnotic Poison, which I've actually been wearing most of the weekend.

    I have to admit that it took me years to learn to wear and appreciate this fragrance, and almost gave up on it. I received my first bottle years ago, when I was into more fresh/citrus-like fragrances. I was also living in Southeast Asia, with year-round tropical climate. So it may have been a combination of the hot sticky climate, and my own mentality about how (not) to wear fragrance that made HP absolutely unwearable for me at the time. However, I loved it in the bottle, and its smell has always haunted me.

    Now that I'm back in cooler climes, and have acquired somewhat of an "education" in fragrances and their application, I decided to revisit this scent. I'm very glad I did! One or two light sprays applied from a distance, and my skin becomes enveloped in the most delicious spiced vanilla! Gone are the sharpness and bitterness I remembered, and I'm happy to include this in my wardrobe once again.

    Thanks for reading! I really wanted to share this experience.

    Today I'm testing a DIY perfume from Ankica, here on the forum. It's labeled PLIMA, and is a strong floral that starts out very sharp and then smells like a soap my mother used to buy (Dove? Camay?). It seems to be long-lasting and linear in the soapy phase. Not my style, really, since I'm not a big fan of florals, especially those with a lot of lily of the valley.

    Oh my goodness Nakupai, you smell divine!

    I'm in something a little strange today: Juliet by Juliet Stewart. Notes are: Amalfi lemons, basil, bergamot and Sicilian orange; middle notes of Mediterranean herbs, Italian jasmine and Madagascan vanilla; and base notes of amber and Oriental precious woods. Sound simple enough, no? It's very mossy and herbaceous. Certainly lovely, but not so much on me. Lovers of light chypres might enjoy this, I think. Anyone know it or try it?

    I'm wearing Bvlgari Black as SotA, totally by accident. Post afternoon bath, I thought I was reaching for a decant of Bvlgari Femme, but it turns out to have been Black. I love this. I was a bit intimidated by it before, expecting all the smoke and rubber that people talked about, and it turns out to be this lovely, subtle thing. You'd think curiosity would have made me try it, but it just never interested me. So count me among its fans now, better late than never.

    For me it's Chanel's Beige. Defending a deposition today and looking damn sexy while doing it - the Chanel was just the trick to finish off the opposing counsel.

    Everyone smells intoxicating today- wearing some scents I never would have investigated had it not been for basenotes.

    I think I have officially become the laziest person alive. I've had a 4 day weekend and am on my 4 th day of sleeping in till noon. Tomorrow is back to work!

    Still undecided as to SOTD but it will be something BIG, which I can't get away with in the office- Fracas? Songes? Mahora?

    Ubu, I agree that it is a gorgeous print ad for Ivoire, however my favorite is the one from 1990 where the lady hidden behind the wide brims of the hat in mute astonishment that her pearl string has broken with her hands in gloves on the sides. I will tell you later who the lady is, I have a temporary glitch in my memory.

    I am wearing Guerlain Gourmand Coquin today, still windy and the school was cancelled.

    I took my almost untouched bottle of Lovely out of the cabinet so that i could photograph it and put it on my swap list since I never liked it.. Thought i"d give it one final farewell spritz and....well? ...You guessed it.
    Suddenly I like it.
    Suddenly I find it a very green, cool. modern patchouli. Maybe the green frag in the pink bottle is what put me off before. Maybe I never treid it on a snowy day before. The wonders of SOTD.
