    My SOTD is Christian Dior Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir - one of the few flankers that I think is much better than the original. Have a great day!

    Notes include Sicilian lemon, hedione, aromatic notes, cedar wood, chypre accord and amber-y note.

    Went to the mall and sprayed myself with Crabtree and Evelyn's Wisteria EDP. It's long lasting and lovely. I cannot make myself buy this though- it smells more like tuberose. I like it but just not enough I think .

    Following your "Rose" theme I have decided to wear the very
    lovely Paestum Rose by Eau d'Italie. I believe this was a Duchaufour
    creation - a bright, incense rose with unusual notes of davana,
    elemi, papyrus, opoponax and wenge wood, as well as rose,
    spices and incense.
    I think I am a fan of Bertrand!!

    It's Carven Ma Griffe again (yes actisluna I think we generally agree on this one, but I'm still looking for the cinnamon and missing the galbanum, nevertheless I really like it).

    Is this the worst perfume advert ever? Almost certainly.

    Meanwhile - IT'S ALL EVANGELINE's FAULT. She's gotten me hooked on Ineke.

    Today it's the strange and wonderful Evening Edged in Gold. LOOKIT this interesting pyramid:


    On me it's fruity and citrusy with lots of that saffron and leather and a hint of skank. Oh GAWD!!!

    I wore Guerlain's Après l'Ondée this morning but it doesn't last on me. It's cooler today, so I can put on a heavier scent for the day.

    Hello everybody!

    I hear ya, Taolady - I'm annoyed with me too! I promised myself I would just sample. I reasoned with myself and reminded myself that full bottles aren't always necessary. Then I got this charming little Ineke set, and I liked most of them right from the start, but I told myself, "Now this is a horse of a different color! Okay, just this once, but you may only have one...one!" I was able to narrow it down to three, and I just came up with several impenetrable arguments for just getting all three, as if it was some task I'd been burdened with and just had to bite the bullet and get it all done at once. I play games with myself, and I'm manipulative.

    I'm so glad you're enjoying them! You made Derring-Do sound fantastic, and it is a great name! I'm in Ineke's house with you, btw, in the vivacious citrus peony called Chemical Bonding.





    Y'all have a great day!

    Still suprisingly unsombre on me. It feels chewy and warm and joyful. I guess that's the lack of catholic guilt :)

    Hi, everyone! Sorry I have been AWOL lately - Life's been even crazier than usual, mostly good though. I hope to be making more frequent, albeit sporadic, visits to my BN family moving forward!

    Lately I've been really scattered with my scent-wearing, too... A new favorite, however, is Cape Cod Soap Co.'s Hydrangea scented body lotion. Just glorious, but light.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin...

    Chanting in unison. Same story, different state.

    RHM hooked me up with a deal from her local Neiman Marcus, and a box arrived yesterday with lots of new scent samples. So today blotters and knuckles smell of lots of different things. (“Blotters and knuckles”—sounds like some kind of English dish.)

    Started today with Fleur de Diva, which turns out to be a light aldehyde floral. The very nice but shy cousin of big Diva, chypre queen. It might seem "old ladyish" to 20 somethings, but that doesn't bother me- and I think it represents classic perfumery well. It would have been perfect had today remained sunny and warm, but it turned cool and foggy so I switched to Incense Rose by Tauer, from a nice trade with Amit. Very resinous and warm- just can't find those roses

    So it does actually bear a resemblance to Diva, it's recognizably related? If so, that's great news - I've had my eye on Fleur de Diva for a while!
