    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.

    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 noticed I'm more attracted to citrussy fragrances, particularly of the orange variety

    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!

    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.

    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)

    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...

    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!

    More for its pleasure than for yours;
