Well, Raindrop, at least you smell WONDERFUL! Hugs to you.
I'm off to work in Eau de Campagne, perhaps the greenest fragrance I own. Love it!
Hope that Baldufita's little one has a fun birthday!
Suffering a brief bout (I hope) of insomnia...my day ended poorly yesterday with an outrageously unprofessional email (I should clarify - I'm the recipient, not the sender.). I did take a moment to reply to the SOB (civilly) - whose nasty-gram likely is a result of his laziness and incompetence - but I think he's messed up in the head to send something so offensive through email.
I do really wonder about people who hide behind the anonymity and/or 'facelessness' of email to behave atrociously.
Anyhow, so I'm up before 4, feeling very tired of dealing with jerks...needing a hug...splashed on a bit of something nice to cheer me up (& hopefully get back to sleep)...
Boucheron by Boucheron
Now just a sample, but I think it may well be worthy of a FB one of these days. A well-done orange blossom never fails to cheer me up....even if just a little...
Carven - Vert et Blanc
Vintage parfum from 1946.
An insouciant aldehyde which gives a tingly green lift.
Perfect for this time of year.
Notes of gardenia, galbanum, aldehydes, clary sage, jasmine, ylang-ylang,
sandalwood, vetiver, styrax, cinnamon, benzoin, labdanum.

Thank you for the birthday wishes for my little one! She'll surely get some cake today (I won't... *sigh*)...
To celebrate St. Patty's, YR Nature EdP: not exactly "green" but the bottle is!! lol

Blessed birthday wishes to Baldufita's little darling!
Happy Saint Patrick's Day.
Wore Montale's Golden Aoud layered with TDC's Osmanthus last night. Now, THAT was awsome!
Today I am wearing TDC's Sublime Balkiss and loving it.

Poor (((Raindrop))), hugs to you. I had my own bout of insomnia last night, thanks in part to my cat horking beside my bed.
Today I will wear knee-high green socks and Tabac Blond.
And, I will go to the dentist.
Happy St. Patrick's Day, all!
The way out is a way in-- NEP
Wow, great pics, everybody!
Belated but heartfelt birthday wishes to Dora and Wordie!
RHM, I am so sorry you have to give up your new kitty!
Shades, have a great week off!
Spent time at Dr office yesterday, doing blood work, etc. Trying to track down the cause of my insomnia/fatigue. Probably hormone related, but not sure yet. Menopause is a bitch. (All males accept my mea culpa and talk amongst yourselves).
PM: Eau Sauvage
Bedtime: Cristalle au Vert
AM: SS Lieu de Reves
Humongous hugs to all who are hurting or otherwise need a big one
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
I'm wearing Prada today. Not very festive for St. Patrick's Day, LOL!
Rose Barbare (Guerlain)
I'm wearing Covet today, and that's about as green as I do.
Thanks Lessa! I'm not off all week, but it will be a nice mini-vacation! (NCAA basketball starts tomorrow!!)
Happy St Patrick's Day to all

posting late, but I'm wearing Sensuous.
Happy St. Patrick's Day! It never occurred to me to wear a green scent today -- yet another reason why I am glad to be a part of this community. So, I will be spritzing on something green in a few minutes, either Chanel No. 19, or Givenchy III, most likely.
Take care, all.
St Patrick's Day greetings to everyone.
Lots of green today, and I'm no different. Wearing No 19.
Such wonderful pics today. Lessa, the menopause poster really cracked me up. Ain't it the truth??
Have a great day, everyone!
Guerlain's Chamade PdT. I can literally CRAVE for this scent!
Chanel Cristalle today....that's sorta green.
found a bag yesterday full of samples which my DH had been kind enough to put away for me and then forgetting where he put it. There are 20-odd samples in it and I was so happy I could have cried!
That's why I'm wearing L'Artisan's Tea for Two from a sample today. I can't get enough of the stuff and I think a FB is in order.
It is a beautiful day after a weekend of stormy weather...Colony by Patou for me. It is such a happy chypre !
Quick spritz of Coco Mademoiselle this morning for work. Sicily for afternoon. This evening trying to get an impression of Tom Ford Black Orchid, it is strange stuff.
Ooops - completely forgot St. Patty's today. Didn't even wear green underwear
Happy birthday to Baldufitta's daughter.
Happy belated birthday to Wordbird!
Parfumerie Generale - Drama Nuui today. Jasmine. Not green.

Hello dear BNers - Thanks for the hugs for this silly insomniac (sigh). I did manage to go back to sleep for another hour or so...and after a quick shower to wake up (I'm always a bit "dull" after sleeplessness) - went back to my sample of
Good stuff, this one. Now, should I get the mini or set of minis or the FB? Rei Rien (not affil) has this cute set of minis, but then again, I really like this fragrance a LOT, so maybe the FB is a good investment . I wonder if it comes in higher strengths. too...hmmm
Wednesday is turning out a heck of a lot better than Tuesday. I don't want to bore you with the details, but doing good things for other people...it really does cancel out a lot of the anger that came with being dumped on by some ingrate.
I feel like the universe is working today...hugs to all...
Wore Fenalilla today. Changing into Havana Vanille for bed.
Ambre Gris by Balmain.
Sonoma Scent Studio's Rose Musc.
More earthy greenness with an evening layering experiment: Safari edp and Encre Noire. The extra dark vetiver really adds to the crisp green floral.
I offer you perfume,

You perfume perfume.

SoTD - Bandit layered with Bulgari Black (2nd day in a row... must be the weather.)
Afternoon: Sycomore (becoming a standard)
Evening: Bandit/BB again, over the Sycomore DD they are awesome.

If I change for SOTE, I'll post again.
