    Roberto, tell us more about your fragrance! How does it compare to Pour Un Homme???

    I have a "sweet tooth" this morning. SotD is the delectable Note Ambree, by Martine Micallef.

    Mauboussin by Mauboussin for me today. It's bright and puts me in a good mood, and just sweet enough to keep me from getting grumpy.

    Best wishes to all feeling poorly.

    I'm an Atwood fan, too. I love her writing, so wonderfully sly and tart.

    In the house (same subdivision, even!!) with Ubu, Mandorlo di Sicilia for me.

    Cheers, all!

    Estee lauder - Azuree

    1968 - A unisex chypre edp with notes of sea grass, water lily, jasmine, amber and musk.

    2006 - Re-interpretation of the original; the second of the Tom Ford Collection.
    An oriental-floral chypre fragrance with top notes of orange blossom, artemisia and sweet basil;
    heart notes of Tahitian flower, gardenia and coconut; on base notes of artemisia, patchouli,
    musk, white cedar and moss.

    I believe I have an older bottle. I haven't tried the new version, although I am not sure.
    I bought a back-up at some point (They could have gotten mixed) so perhaps they are close.
    If anyone knows for sure, please speak up! This is a crisp-green, springtime, gem of a fragrance.

    Scent Twins with *bloomy* today I hope you like it better than I do.

    Wearing the anti-perfume today.

    L’Eau de Serge Lutens
    I'm afraid I don't like it at all. I am surprised this one was ever developed, it smells like every other fresh aquatic out there. Yes, it's safe. Definitely boring and surprisingly long lasting.

    Happy Birthday Sunnyfunny!

    Today I think I'll put on YSL's Nu.

    Oh! Yesterday was the first time I've ever had a stranger stop me in the street to ask me what perfume I was wearing. It was lovely but awkward, because she wanted to know where she could get it and it was from my sample of Amouage Epic Man. I have no idea how to tell someone where to get Amouage. She was surprised it was a men's cologne and then said "It smells so sweet and powdery!" Which gave me pause. I think she might have been talking about my deodorant.

    Happy birthday to Sunnyfunny (what a great name!) My birthday is this week too... I love having my birthday in the springtime. I wonder if certain astrological signs trend towards certain scents?

    Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle Bois d'Orage/French Lover today. Received a compliment from a male co-worker, who then asked what it was called. I sort of timidly explained the cheeky name and we had a little giggle about it. heehee

    Kumquat - the way I understand it is in 2007, Tom Ford presented Azuree Soleil which is a fruity-floral beachy scent that has nothing to do with Azuree except for the name (and I'm quite surprised to see moss even listed in this "re-working.") When TF left and Azuree Soleil was discontinued just a couple of years later, it was replaced with Bronze Goddess, which is virtually the same summery/beachy scent with a new name. The Azuree that's available today is the same green and mossy formula they've used since it was introduced in the late 60s, with just some subtle tweaking through the years.

    Oh, good. I thought maybe that's what this (Perfume Intelligence quote) referred to, but I wasn't sure. I think you are probably right. Mine smells just as I remember it.

    Thinking of you, RHM and 30 Roses.

    Bear with me here, because there's a story attached to this but my Scents of the day are:
    Left arm - Heeley Cardinal
    Left pinky - Penhaligons Maharanih
    Left index finger - Different Company Sel de Vetiver
    Right arm - Byredo Gypsy Water
    Right index finger - Estee Lauder Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang
    Right pinky - Parfums del Rae Bois du Paradis

    And this wide and interesting selection is because I spent the day in Basel with VMIHateCivet, Alica and Potiron. We came, we lunched, we sniffed ourselves into exhaustion. It was my first meeting with fellow 'Noters and it was brilliant.

    Happy Birtday, Sunnyfunny! Healing thougths to all those in need of positive vibes.

    SotD was CdG Kyto for the meeting with VM I hate civet, Alica and Wordbird. Brilliant ladies, all three of them.

    Tested:
    Kilian Back to Black on the left index finger (indeed very similar to Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille, perhaps a little more balanced)
    Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles (I'm a sucker for pine - thank you Wordie!)
    And a fig fragrance, very realistic and so enjoyable. Wordie, I've forgotten the name again... What was the figgy thingy called?

    Looking forward to Wordbird's story!

    SotD: Mademoiselle

    SotE: Guerlain Coriolan (just got my bottle in from one of our own)

    Loving them all. Coromandel is from a TPC large decant, I think it's lovely but a little much for me. Good thing my 'fume buys are on a self-imposed grounding, I think I have enough scent in my cabinet for the rest of my life and then some!
