    Small's got her mojo working. Now I want that good fortune to spread to all of you like chicken pox.

    All the green threads heralding spring and the weekend of chypre sniffing got me craving my very first foray into vintage perfumery, Replique by Raphael Paris, for today's SotD. I have both vintage parfum and edt and they are stunning. A perfect green for winter without being "wintergreen" (neither pine nor mint) and although a heavy and warming green a nice choice for the not-quite-spring-yet climate here.

    Notes include:
    Top: Bergamot oil, Clary Sage oil, Coriander, Neroli, Orange
    Heart: Clove Bud oil, Jasmin, Orris, Rose, Tuberose, Ylang-Ylang
    Base: Amber, Civet, Leather, Moss, Musk, Patchouli, Vanilla

    I get a lush, citrusy, animalic, spicy, barbershop, green, floral, oriental, chypre (yes it's a kitchen sink scent, but not overwhelmingly so) vibe that starts bright and ends dark.


    This ad shows the parfum flacon.

    Long Lost Perfumes makes a contemporary copy... I haven't smelled it, but the vintage pops up online quite a bit.
    Hope everyone has a great start to the week!
    I offer you perfume,
    More for its pleasure than for yours;
    You perfume perfume.

    Weeerrrrrrr......too nauseous today.....the only thing I might try to tolerate is a little spritz of Demeter's Gingerale, we'll see how that goes.



    Thank you to you lovely people for your logical and supportive words yesterday. You made perfect sense and I'm feeling less upset about the whole favoritism issue. Thank you thank you!!

    Hello everyone -

    I didn't get enough of this perfect chypre yesterday, so I'm in Gucci No. 3 again. Love it, hoard it.

    Y'all have a great day!

    Nuit de Noho for me today. Tomorrow will be a day of high stress at work. I need to choose my fragrance carefully. It must be personally comforting, but also have low sillage. I am thinking of Havana Vanille vs. Natori vs. LTBL... What do you think?

    Natori! Natori! Natori! I think this would be perfect cuz both HV and LTBL can be a bit heavy and sweet if you're feeling stressed. Natori is elegant, comforting, low sillage and wasn't it also a gift from your daughter? Extra points for that :-)

    Testing Divine L'etre Aime-Femme from a sample today. So far, so good.

    Take care, all.

    Ooh, everyone smells so GOOD today.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SNAFOO!!

    Today for me it's:

    Michael by Michael Kors



    First time from a sample - it's OK. It smells like BurberryLondonBlackWalnutBananaRepublicJohnVarvato sallrolledintoone. Nonetheless, this has insane longevity & sillage. Wow!

    Natori it is then! How sweet that you remembered its extra-points allure! Thanks, Lovethescents.

    Evening all,

    looong day at work today, started at 7 am, ending at 7.30 pm. Feeling slightly comatose at the moment.

    Still, smelling good in Gucci by Gucci.

    Hi all!

    I'm logged in at the library but must hurry back to the house in a moment.

    Things are going well. Mom is recovering --she actually started feeling better as soon as Dad was no longer suffering-- and is optimistic about returning to CT with us. We are crazy busy but making good headway in going through the house and setting aside the things she treasures to bring up to her in a UHaul in April.

    The biggest change in plans is that we are going to turn the house into a rental instead of selling it.

    I'll post again after I return home.

    It's been largely a scent free week for me, other than Pacifica Waikiki Pikake. I couldn't bear to associate my favorite perfumes with the turbulence of this trip. But I really do feel that all is going to be well.

    So good to hear 30Roses’ “stress bubble” has burst and pressure is relieved.

    Quiet day at work for a change. Wore my sample of Micallef's Aoud Gourmet for the first time and I adore it from first sniff - wonderfull sillage and it's a stayer too. Think this one may have to be a FB.

    Hugs to Chaya and Ine! And 30 Roses of course, so good to hear from you. We'll keep thinking of you.

    SotD was PG 18 Cadjemere
    Sampled Chanel No 5 EdC (very soft and easy-to-wear-version of No 5) and TDC Bois d'Iris (sweet carrrot juice - in the best way possible) this evening. Thank you so much, Lovethescents!

    Started with a sample 31 Rue Cambon, afternoon a sample Sycomore, this evening's Kiehl's Orig. Musk. (I swear that is the exact same musk blend as my baby book, my Gran must've had Kiehl's.)

    Catching up... 30 Roses, glad that things are less turbulent... you sound like you are well.
