    30Roses, I wish you and your family all the best during this difficult time.

    Wore Vol de Nuit Evasion last night, and today I'm wearing Apres l'Ondee. Would that Guerlain would make Apres easier to find in the US.

    Have a good Thursday afternoon and evening, everyone!

    ((((((30Roses)))))) - it's a tough thing to go through, best wishes to you and your family.

    And to the SoTD

    Since I just spilled about 7.5 ml of Patchouli Empire (in what was supposed to be a simple sniff/dab move that went horribly wrong) all over me and on my clothes, I'm guessing my SoTD is... Patchouli Empire. Can't comment on it until I am only wearing one human-sized dose!

    Sheesh. Grace personified I am not. :-}

    Thanks for the hugs! I feel better.

    I am really enjoying this "Cotton Flower" roll-on perfume bought at the airport shop. Yes, it smells like soap, but in the nicest way. And I've been driving myself nuts trying to recall the brand of soaps it smells like-- it started with a "B". They were blue, shaped like shells and available in the gift/bath products section of department stores like Filene's. Don't you just hate when a name hovers in the back of your mind? Aargh!

    I'm wearing The Lost (Bathed and Infused dupe of Luctor et Emergo) layered with Heeley Cardinal (to amp up the incense which is lacking in The Lost). BIG MISTAKE. I've been very short of breath for the last few days, and this was just TOO much ...

    30Roses, I'm so sorry to hear about your family's troubles. hugs to you ...

    Chaya, you know how I feel about prednisone ... it's a love/hate relationship but we do what we have to do.

    Happy birthday, Donna255

    Hi all, with special hugs to 30Roses and Donna.

    I missed yesterday, when I tested, for the day:



    Cereus Pour Homme No. 11

    Then, for my five-star evening fragrance:



    L'Artisan Parfumeur Fou d'Absinthe

    -------------------------------------------------

    EDIT: I forgot which Cereus I'm wearing today. Doh.

    I'll re-wear something tomorrow, I guess.

    But, for the evening, I'm wearing Costume National Homme.

    -------------------------------------------------

    EDIT #2: It was Cereus No 14.

    Urgh.

    Stupid unmarked sample vials.

    Hello everyone!

    It's been a crazy day, and I just realized that I never posted my SOTD, another of my own 5-Star Fragrances - from 1991, Christian Dior's incredible, incomparable Dune.


    Top notes - bergamot, mandarin, rosewood, aldehyde, broom
    Middle notes - jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang, lily, wallflower
    Base notes - vanilla, patchouli, benzoin, sandalwood, amber

    Interesting note - Dune won a Fifi in 1993 for Best Women's Fragrance of the Year in the Nouveau Niche category.



    30 Roses - I'm so sorry for what you're going through. You and your family are in my thoughts.

    Twolf - you made my day! 8e Jour is also a long-time favorite of mine and I'm thrilled that you know and love it! I've never known how to describe it but you did it perfectly - "A balmy oriental with frankincense and vanilla and it is a swooner"...I love that!

    Libertine - I'm so glad you like L'Instant de Guerlain! This one is very special to me, and I was really hoping it would make a good impression!

    Sending warm and fragrant hugs to all of you, but especially to 30 Roses, RHM, and Chaya.

    For today, I chose my (five-star) comfort rose, Gres Cabaret.

    No, I googled the images and it is something else. Nice try though!

    Thanks and hugs to all of you who are posting your caring messages to me! You have no idea how much it is helping.

    Happy Birthday Donna!!

    I'm wearing the very lovely Ange Ou Demon today. It reminds me of Brut. It's funny because I only liked smelling Brut on my Grand-Daddy.

    (((((30 Roses))))) I prayed for you this morning; will continue to. Bless your heart.

    I just spent like a bunch of time chatting with my sis, which is cool but odd. So now it's way late and I need to get ready for bed, so this one's short.

    Day 5 if five-star week is my skanky, sweet, spicy, second-skin sillage bomb, Tabu.



    That's it!
