    Therese - good luck today! Don't forget to pamper yourself too.

    30 Roses - happy to hear the stress bubble has burst. Another step towards the "new normal". Please take care of yourself and your mom.

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

    Wearing Possets Sex Juice today.
    One of the more complex scents in the Possets line.
    Starts with an herbal, almost minty note with dirt, cream and honey.
    The dirt note is really strong.
    Sounds weird - but it is quite compelling.
    The base is the Possets signature creamy vanillic base with a healthy lashing of MKK/Musc Ravageur-style musk.

    Really digging this (ha!) now. Went through the sample in a flash and have already dug (ha ha) into the full size.

    Testing PG Corps et Ames. This one is impressing me mightily thus far, not only for its loveliness but also for its restraint.

    Sending hugs to where they'll do the most good. Take care, all.

    Everybody smells sooooo GOOD!

    I just opened my package of samples from Sonoma Scent Studio. The first two I tried on skin are Velvet Rose (oil) and Femme Jolie (oil). the Velvet Rose is pretty linear & my skin seems to have "eaten it up". Whereas, the FJ is surprisingly peppery and quite interesting. I like it, here in the first few minutes, much better than the Velvet Rose.

    My dry skin is a factor in the scent consumption, of that, I am sure.

    From the Sonoma Scent Studio web site: Notes for Velvet Rose:
    "A fresh but deep rose soliflore with Damask rose, bergamot, violet leaf, soft carnation, musk, and subtle patchouli."

    and for Femme Jolie: "Notes are ginger, cinnamon, clove, plum, peach, orange blossom, violet, cedar, sandalwood, vanilla, musk."

    Dioressence
    Created by Guy Robert of IFF (1970); a soft oriental aldehyde parfum with top notes of fruit and rose; heart notes of jasmine, geranium, cinnamon and vanilla and base notes of patchouli, oak moss, vetiver and musk.

    This is sumptuous, green and a little powdery to start. I have a vintage bottle. Oddly there is no mention (in Perfume Intelligence) of the ambergris that was supposed to have been added to the Miss Dior formula to create this fragrance.

    Hi Turquoisewater, it's good to see you!

    Thanks to a divine perfume friend, I am wearing Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Fleur des Comores. It's so pretty! A smoky vanilla combines with indolic-tinged florals and a touch of fruit (passionfruit?), making for an interesting, complex scent, heady and tropical. It's lush and sweet, but there's nothing cake batter about this one.

    Hugs to all in need of them.

    Take care, everyone!

    Wow, everyone smells fabulous today!



    Quarry - sharing your excitement in the bell tower project!

    Today I am loving Penhaligon's Amarinthine.
    Amaranthine’s top notes as green tea, white freesia, banana tree leaf, coriander seed oil, and cardamom absolute; its heart notes as rose, carnation, clove oil, orange blossom, ylang ylang oil, and Egyptian jasmine absolute; and its base as musk, vanilla, sandalwood, condensed milk, and tonka bean absolute. (Props to NST)




    Went to bed last night in Invasion Barbare, unusual for me to duplicate a wearing on the same day. I absolutely adore this one!

    Evening all,

    spent the day in SJP's Lovely and got two compliments from co workers. One of them asked how many different scents I own so I had to 'fess up. I always find that difficult to do to people who don't share my perfume nerdiness...

    Some amazingly lovely images today.

    Wearing No 5 EdP. It and Eau Premiere are my go-to fragrances when I'm unsure what to wear. And today is just one of those days.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    I am with Lessa -- yes, fabulous and diverse! Some of us are even trying to step out of the rut, I think.

    Back to Black is not a keeper for me and I will not wear it any more -- life is too short to put up and to conform.

    Wear another weird one instead -- John Galliano, with synthetic patch and other stink.

    SotD was CdG Kyoto. Perfect in this freezing cold weather.
    In the evening I sampled SL La Myrrhe (than you lovethescents). Sadly, this one is not for me.

    Havana Vanille again today. When I was sampling this I could barely smell it and now, after a 10 ml decant and a good few mls from my new bottle I get wafts of it all day. I'm sure I have 'trained' my nose to smell it !

    Chanel Coco Mademoiselle this morning, and as the lovely drydown persists, a layer of Sycomore this afternoon. Nice blend!

    Ooh... with a little Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere EDP on one arm and a little later, Chanel Allure Sensuelle EDP on the other. I think I might have sweet dreams!
