    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?
    Interesting idea. (I'm an April 10 Aries with MARS everywhere... I can't help but thinking that contributes to my love of more masculine and warmer scents.)

    And HB to SF...

    And Hugs to all who need 'em!

    SOTD ~ Fico di Amalfi, Blue Mediterenneo/Acqua di Parma
    Love that quote...Ah, if the soil would only dry out (Oklahoma is at risk of becoming a rainforest <I wish> this year, we've had SO much snow and rain for a year it's kind of spooky.) ... then I WOULD smell like dirt. I love to play in mud but it isn't good gardening weather yet.

    Thank you all for your birthday wishes, flowers, and beautiful and highly appropriate birthday cakes!

    I'm having a great day today, feeling better and finally snapping out of the work-induced funk that's been clouding my mood since last Wed. All your bday wishes have helped tremendously, because I'm just loving the heck out of my day today. Right now I'm trying to track down some red velvet cake in this one-horse town. It's looking like I'll have to make it, myself (which would be tastier, anyway!).

    Wearing my favorite!

    My bottle of Carven Ma Griffe edp (current version I believe) arrived today and so it is my scent of the evening.

    BN has a pyramid for I assume the 1946 original:
    Top Notes--Aldehydes, Clary sage, Galbanum, Bergamot.
    Middle Notes--Gardenia, Jasmin, Ylang-ylang, Rose.
    Base Notes--Cinnamon, Tonka Bean, Vetiver.

    Here's what Carven says about mine:
    (Floral Aldehydic)
    Top--Aldehydes, Green Gardenia
    Heart--Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Rose
    Base--Vetiver, Styrax, Tonka Beans, Musk

    I must say I get no galbanum which is a bit of a letdown, but it is a marvelous scent so far. Bright and juicy aldehydes unlike both Chanel and Piguet aldehydes with which I am most familiar. Not cold and aloof, but warm and sweet and definitely green. The notes betray a similarity to RL Safari edp (another recent acquisition in my hunt for springtime green florals) and there is a resemblance, but only slight. Safari is much drier, both less sweet and less juicy and has a parched powderiness that Ma Griffe does not have. The styrax (benzoin) and tonka give a hint of vanilla-ness without ever screaming vanilla and a bit of resinous spice. No real cinnamon or cassia yet, but I'm still sniffing for it and perhaps it will emerge (or it was an aspect of the older formulations left out of this one). Aldehydes and green, earthy (i.e., dirty but not indolic) jasmine predominate so far. I'm looking forward to more vetiver (that earthiness no doubt) as the base emerges and the aldehydes burn off. A real bargin too!

    "Ma Griffe" is both "my signature" and "my clutches/talons/claws/grasp" or both as this older ad demonstrates with a woman leaving her mark on her man.

    Wondering how your Ma Griffe experience compares with my comments about the scent... I compared vintage and new. (link on the sig) ... would be interesting to compare notes... so to speak.

    And odd that I get cinnamon in the reformulation. But my nose reads darker = cinnamon. So much for scent pyramids!

    OK, Swiss Army, we want the full report -- how it went in general, what brands you smelled, what you ate, what smelled good on you all, what the salespeople were saying about your invasion, if they were generous with samples, what jokes made you laugh, etc. Please, the details!

    About birthdays and perfume preferences: we have a handful of Geminis here and we -- Ms.Tao, Quarry, RHM, Asha, tdem61, Alicka, Moondeva and many more -- love our smellies and enjoy talking/writing about them. They (fragrances) do not have to be exactly the same, but they have to bear the qualities reflecting our individual approaches to life and how we tackle it. We also once came to the conclusion that one has to see the position of AC and Venus in your natal chart to be able to say what another person might enjoy.

    Oh! It's a cake! (Somehow I simply wondered why someone had spray-painted their Reebok and put it in a tray.) LOL... Yes!

    Sampling Sinfonia di Note's Jardin d'Orient, and enjoying it. However, it reminds me quite strongly of Montale's Oriental Flowers, which I already own, so I suppose I don't need a full bottle.
