    Ha! You're right - I can't believe I didn't notice that strange arm-like appendage where her arm should be.

    Congratulations! Is it as fig-tastic as you'd always imagined it would be??

    It's my inaugural wearing of my latest blind buy: Cuir de Lancome. My bottle cap and sprayer is still jacked up, but I guess I can live with it.

    Happy Monday to all!

    Test driving Mitsouko Fleur de Lotus. This is very well done and is FBW. Now if Guerlain would make it easier to purchase.

    Hope everyone is having a good Monday. Take care, all!

    Started off the morning with my sample of Ego Facto's Prends Garde a Toi. WTF? It smells like a light green floral with honeydew melon, tapering off to a wimpy jasmine. I don't think Carmen smelled like honeydew melon. Not that honeydew melon and green floral jasmine are bad, it's just the cognitive dissonance induced by the name.

    Once this unfortunately named melonball fiasco wears off, I'll be sampling Fred Miller's Above, the men's version.

    Hi again!

    After Pilates, shoveling huge mounds of snow and showering, I took the opportunity to log another 5-Star Fragrance, and like L'Instant, I seem to reach for this one all the time! I know you've given me permission to count these, cello, but next time I'm going to make an effort to choose something I wear less frequently.

    But for now I'm in an opulent cloud of Clinique's Aromatics Elixir. It's perfect.




    I don't have this atomizer, but I should.

    I wore Keiko Mecheri Ume again today and received a compliment so it is now on my wishlist where it will probably remain for a very long time until I can afford it!
    Tried some others today:
    Teo Cabanel Alahine is a beautiful, soft, feminine, smoky amber which lasts forever on me. It is not overpowering which is a big plus as I much prefer softer ambers to the bolder ones (e.g Ambre Precieux which is a gorgeous perfume but too strong for me);
    applied Cartier Panthere and instantly I know I'm not glam enough to wear this big perfume but I do have a friend who is and I think she will love it; also tried Apparition, incredibly sweet, and am I right in saying this is linear (never sure about 'linear' but Apparition doesn't seem to change at all).

    Kinda sick today, spent most of the day in bed.

    Tan Giudicelli Annam for a 5 star fragrance. Can't smell it anyway. Very hard to come by and very nice.

    Welcome to the new member taketheair, I love Balmain de Balmain -- Miss Tao sent me a bottle when I did not know how to get it -- and it is my other 5 star fragrance, sweet and quite addictive.

    Hi all!

    Today I tested my last Odin, 03 Century.



    Rosewood, and lots of it.

    I been giving some thought to the 5-star week and I just don't want to waste my special favorites on workdays, so I'll have 5-star evenings.

    So I'll be wearing Bond No. 9 New Haarlem to bed tonight...

    Thank you for the well-wishing yesterday.
    We're both so excited and since we can't really tell everybody yet, its a relief to be able to tell our friends here.

    Lovethescents, what fun!! Sharing your fabulous good news, no doubt!

    Twolf, sorry you're not feeling well... there's something cruel about BNers getting too sick to sniff. Here's hoping it passes quickly!

    Cello, you smell stunning! Coromandel is swoon-worthy stuff. I'd join you in your Five Star Frags if I owned more of them. Doing my best with what I got.

    Secret Charm

    Wanted something a little different today... the bright honeysuckle and sweet fresh apple opening lead into delicate stephanotis. Its also called Madagascar Jasmine, or Bridal Wreath, and its very popular in wedding arrangements.



    I rarely reach for jasmine, but this is soft enough to bloom even on my skin... and it feels appropriate, in light of my delightful surprise.

    Have a wonderful evening everyone!

    SotD today was the new Guerlain Tonka Imperiale, a sample from a clever elf

    The good news...well, I like it very much. It hits all the marks that an oriental should, and seems simultaneously classic and modern with tonka, opoponax and leather notes. The top is soft and inviting with subtle cherry almond and leather along with the tonka. The drydown is powdery and sweet. It is as if I am on an axis with Habit Rouge on one end, Dior Homme on the other, when suddenly a woman wearing L'Heure Bleue walks by--what could be better?

    The not-so-good news...it reminds me of the much cheaper Les Nereides Imperial Opoponax and of a bottle already in my wardrobe, Miller Harris Fleur Oriental. I can also see some strong similarities to Old Spice.

    Slight change of plans on this day two of five-star week, as I noted in cello's thread. I was given a delicious surprise gift yesterday.

    Borneo 1834



    This one was on one of Perfume Posse's must-smell lists (101 or 201, I don't remember) as being a singular oddity in the perfume world. Maybe it was that statement alone that got me so excited to try it. When one of my early enablers, the long-absent and much missed lizzie j, sent me a huge decant, I was stoked. But it wasn't, as it turned out, my cup of tea. That which I enjoyed in incense form did not translate so well on my skin. I gave half the decant away.
    A few months ago I felt like challenging myself and Borneo called to me.

    Then, it blew my mind.

    I used up all but a couple sprays of my decant, so I could sniff it from time to time and let my eyeballs roll back into my head. I didn't figure on ever owning a bottle.
    My uncle mentioned he was going to Paris over Christmas, so I asked him to bring me a sample if he happened by the Serge boutique. He tracked the boutique down for me and bought me the full bottle. I finished off my decant last night.
    The way out is a way in-- NEP
