Roberto, you smell DELICIOUS today!
Feel better, Soir!
Same to you, Petra, hope you fight off the lurgy successfully.
Eva Pasco - I love the quotes you've been posting, today's included. Thank you!
Sharing the house with Ubu in L'Artisan Parfumeur, Safran Troublant for me.
Best to all!

Caron - French Can Can
Yesterday it was springtime. Today there are large snowflakes falling
and another blanket of white covering the ground!
Time for some nasal trickery. This floral should make me think of summer.
I was once followed by a couple of frustrated bees while wearing this.
The fragrance notes are jasmine, lilac, violet, lily of the valley, rose, orange blossom,
patchouli, iris, sandalwood, amber and oakmoss.

I'm wearing Ma Griffe EdP today, just aquired after not having owned any for years. I'd forgotten how much I like it.
Soir: I hope that you feel better through the day.
I am wearing Havana Vanille.
Scent Two: Laurel by Monocle x Comme des Garcons
petruccijc - love the picture in your SOTD post. (giggle)

Feeling under the weather, as are some of you poor dears, so I have to be careful about a scent today so that I won't invite upon myself a nasty headache. Thinking that another day in Replique is a safe choice. Take care, all.

I'm wearing Tom Ford's Arabian Wood. I have to say that it reminds me of Halston Z-14 quite a bit. A nice, 80s retro fougere/chypre, but what's actually Arabian about it?
I´m spending the day in the lovely Une Fleur de Cassie (FM).
Hugs and good thoughts to everyone of you.
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
I noticed I'm more attracted to citrussy fragrances, particularly of the orange variety
Happily enjoying the orangey, thin and light l'Artisan Mandarine Tout Simplement!

Hello dear BNers...last night, I arrived home to find my package from Neiman's had safely arrived. It included the three (!) fragrance samples in their GWP - which I tried on different parts of me - Balenciaga Paris (subtle skin scent - pretty - will retest), an Atelier (forget which one, but it had lots of orange, in a nice way! might be a good one in summer - will retest), and Van Cleef & Arpels (Oriens). Fruity floral with patchouli in the base - the descriptions sounds nice enough on the various websites, but it is absolutely wretched on me. I took a shower and doused myself with Boucheron for bedtime...
Today is shaping up to be one of those annoying days, unfortunately...place Raindrop on "low" and simmer for 8 hours. LOL
Lucky for me, I am wearing one of my favorites
SOTD: Chanel No. 19 (parfum)
Have a great day, dear friends...
Lovely day to all - I am wearing one of my favorites of last year, Back to Black. Kind of a tobacco-cousin to Antaeusintheair today.
Yesterday afternoon after work I spritzed on some AL No23 and bedtime wore Paestum Rose.
Feeling better after 3 decent night's sleep in a row!
Calm healing thoughts to all who need them!
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
Thanks for the afternoon tea, Lessa. I'm only now donning fragrance — and it was quite a chore. Looked through all my bottles and decants and samples — yes all — nothing was appealing, but I needed fragrance. What finally spoke to me? Mitsouko.

Just back from the most relaxing short break in the Lake District, bliss. Took some samples with me and wore mostly Ume and Midnight Violet (trying to use this so very sparingly!). For coming home to the rain today I wore Coco Mademoiselle.
My blog about perfume
Annick Goutal's Songes in the morning, and in the afternoon L'être aimee by Divine poured in a tissue paper and stucked to my nose to cover a horrid home scent poured by a coworker. It has saved my day (and my coleage's)
Wore Ivoire de Balmain.
Good health to everyone. Have a safe Thursday, all!
Today I'm wearing Serge Lutens' Fleurs de Citronnier. Haven't worn this in a while; it was buried so deep in my perfume drawer, I forgot about it.
I am wearing First Love by Van Cleef & Arpels
I'm time travelling again. For me it's actually Firday morning .
Hi everyone !
Now I'm in Fracas - my old time fave - *love* Fracas.
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
Chanel Sycomore this morning, this afternoon, and this evening. (the cool cloudy weather makes this woody warm scent so comforting!)
Get well soon, Soir!!
I wore JM Vanille & Anise for a day in Manchester at the agency I am working for. Applied at 8.30am. home at 7pm, didn't sniff myself once in between! Shocking news...
"So many scents, so little skin"...
I am in my new and resplendent green floral, Safari edp, for the evening. Quite a bright and zesty shock after the smooth seduction of Tabac Aurea and Habanita all day. It is quite reminiscent of No. 19 (as you all said it would be), but more voluptuous and less austere and actually reminds me a lot of Diva and Z-14 as far as chypres go. Fabulous!
I offer you perfume,
More for its pleasure than for yours;
You perfume perfume.

Old Spice tonight, just because..
