Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

Ormonde Jayne (Woman) for me
Die-hard perfume lover that I am. I arrived in London for brief stay. Had hours to kill before my hotel room would be ready. So I dropped off my baggage, and headed directly to Ormonde Jayne, which was only a 20 minute walk. There I chatted, sampled and stocked up.
Sadly I'm about to leave already for but I've enjoy every minute here.
Nostalgie - glad you're enjoying London ! Have a great stay !
Estee Lauder's Tuberose Gardenia EDP for me . The past few stressful days have played havoc with my digestive system- everything goes in and out ,in record time. Sorry to be gross.
Prayers and thoughts for RHM,30 Roses, 30 Roses' Mom, Kewart and all those Basenoters who need good thoughts.

Happy Birthday to our Birthday members!
Healing vibes to all those in need.
I rediscovered a small vial of Montale's Sweet Oriental Dream
last night amongst a box of samples. It's very pretty and sniffable,
so I shall wear it when I tutor my three pupils this afternoon.
Yeah, Chaya, have you seen lilybp anywhere any place as of late? Remember how she has figured out almost all of them teasers -- between the busy life of hers, scientific research and publishing books? I used to be reading her posts on MUA, but she has just disappeared.
Happy Birthday to Sunnyfunny and many fragrant surprises.
L'Artisan Voleur de Roses for me again.
Good morning and best wishes to all...
The birds are chirping before daybreak. I will step out into the world with Elizabeth Taylor Gardenia.

Guys, I do not know if you have all noticed, but this lady Eva IS a writer and has a book (the title is in her signature) on the market. (I also remember reading her posts on another forum a few years ago).
Eva, are you working on something about fragrances and notes at the moment? Please tell us more.
Happy birthday, Sunnyfunny!
I am wearing Premier Figuier today and I really enjoy it!

The Different Company - Bergamote today. Will be a staple in the summer heat.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUNNYFUNNY!!!
And positive energy streaming to those sick in soul and/or body.
Am revisiting Ineke these days. A WONDERFUL BNer (you know who you are) suggested I try Chemical Bonding when I was going on and on about peonies, so naturally I re-ordered Ineke's beautifully presented $25 sample library. (And bought the CB - creamy peonies with tea!!)
Today it's Derring-Do (when was the last time any of us used THAT expression!) a musky fougere with more than hints of magnolia. I think I've grown up enough now to fully appreciate this lady's fumes - which are unpretentious and natural in the literal sense of the word. Refreshing!!

Good morning all and HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIRTHDAY KIDS!!! Have an awsome day! Today is a nice and sunny day(but can't see the neighbour's house on the other side of the road due to all this SNOW!!) The day will be spent writing about empowerment in Social work. Needed something pretty and optimistic today,so I chose Nahema.
I just bought myself, and am now wearing, the best American perfume ever!
Good Morning Everybody!!!
Happy birthday Sunnyfunny!!!! I hope you take some time to enjoy a relaxing
I have pre admission tests at the hospital today, so I'm "going in" smelling wonderful. Rosines' Rosa Flamenca for me. Well, for the first part of the day anywho!

Oops; happy b-day from me too, SF..!
Chanel Cristalle eau de toilette. Simple. Clean. Fresh. Lemony Chypre. Almost a minimalist Eau Sauvage.

Trying out the new Serge Lutens L'eau from a sample...
Alfreg Sung Shi today for me!
Yves Rocher Vanille Pistache. Nutty sweet ;)
Pistachio oil is listed as an ingrediant, so it's probably anaphylactic shock in a bottle. Great layered with rose for a poor girl's loukhoum!
Happy Birthday Sunnyfunny !!.
Happy Birthday Sunnyfunny! Hope you have a blast!
Scent Twins with *bloomy* today I hope you like it better than I do.
Wearing the anti-perfume today.
L’Eau de Serge Lutens
Fresh and Clean are the equivalent of Safe and Boring. The department store counters are awash in a tsunami of Fresh and Clean. That is why many colognoisseurs turn to niche where the sensibilities aren’t always tuned to appease the general public. That is why when one of those houses, Serge Lutens, that I reliably turn to for something different announced the 2010 release L’Eau de Serge Lutens as the “anti-perfume” and his take on ironing and clean laundry in fragrance form I was not happy. Then I thought let’s see what someone who I think is very creative does with this theme can M. Lutens make me reassess my feelings towards this trend in fragrance?
The top of L’Eau is an aldehyde and citrus opening which is well-balanced, bright, and shiny. Oh yeah its boring, too. The citrus fades away and a pale mix of light magnolia and sage appears. The base is a sheer white musk so ubiquitous these days in a clean fragrance. This white musk with all of the animalic qualities scrubbed out has its place but at the end of a run of clean and boring it just heaps on more indifference until the only emotion L’Eau evokes is ennui.
L’Eau de Serge Lutens has excellent longevity and modest sillage.
L’Eau de Serge Lutens is the niche version of Febreze. It will make you smell generic and clean but don’t you want more from a fragrance? I know I do.
Have a Wunderbar Wednesday everyone.
