    Guerlain layering: Mahora mixed with Vetiver. Not an April Fools joke... it's actually quite wonderful. Tart citrus, warm and earthy-green vetiver and tobacco, all coupled with sweet, vanilla-coconut frangipani and tropical tuberose-jasmine-ylang.

    Have a great day all.

    Thymes Fig Leaf & Cassis while DH is away from the house. Plenty of employment/work, housework to keep me busy. Would love to spend more time outside and working on the HW blogsite, but gotta do what I gotta do.

    Wish I had more time for my smelly friends here.

    Good morning all! Sun is peeking out here in NYC but we are still a bit temperate...although the weather reporters promised 70 degrees today. We shall see.

    I started my day in Van Cleef & Arpels Murmure, a woody floral with a cedar base and heart of jasmine. When I first bought it (unsniffed, on eBay, on a whim because I was buying something else from the seller and this looked interesting) I didn't like it. Felt it was too floral, too white. But a year later, I quite like it. I am one of the (lucky?) few that can tame jasmine...she does not amp into a riotous indolic shout on me. Here is a nice review at Scented Salamander

    Notes (also from SS): Top notes include freesia and white rose with essence of mandarin orange; heart notes are made up of jasmine sambac absolute, orange blossom and cassie flower, and the base notes are comprised of Brazilian rosewood, cedar and vanilla infusion.

    On me, the freesia last quite a long time, blending gently into the orange flower over time. The cedar is present from the very beginning and hangs on long, with rosewood emerging more as the drydown continues.
    Beauty is but the sensible image of the Infinite.
    Like truth and justice it lives within us; like virtue and the moral law it is a companion of the soul.

    Un Jardin Sur Le Nil

    Sensuous lotus and sycamore caressed by subtle aquatic notes.
    Jean Claude Ellena's tour de force.

    The notes are: green mango, lotus flower, aromatic rushes, incense, sycamore wood.

    I'm wearing Fumerie Turque today.

    Our weeping cherry tree is blooming today! We planted it last summer after it had bloomed, so this is the first time I have seen it with blossoms. Surely that means Spring is finally here!

    Have a good day everyone.

    Chergui today.

    Last night I had a dream I finally got to sample the new Parfumerie Generale Papyrus de Ciane, which I've been dying to try. (I love having dreams about fragrance). Anyway, Saturday I'm going to L.A. with a friend - I think we'd better stop by Scent Bar for a sniff!

    Hey there - all you crazy Animals! Ha!

    Thinking about this weekend's SnS - Florals! Yeah! Looks like last year's April SnS was narrowed down (somewhat) to spring florals - sounds lovely! I was reading through all the things sampled...I do love my roses, but am thinking that it would be another good reason to track down that sample of Manoumalia, which may well be my next FB. Anyhow...

    SOTD: Paco Rabanne Calandre


    I do love the "green florals", and this one is absolutely superb (nice price, too!). Love the BN reviews on this one (agree wholeheartedly with vintage*red!)

    Mysticknot - Hope you have a safe and not-too-uncomfortable trip home! Will be thinking of you!

    Two little dabs of vintage Cabochard bath oil on my wrists (SO PRETTY, ugh). And a little spray of Amouage Epic Woman. Lovely!

    Also, haha. I'm so out of it. I was like "Wow, these people really like Animal!" this morning. It took me ten minutes before I 'got' it. Dur.

    Mochi227, I have Murmure and wear it once in a while, but I have to be in the mood -- just like you said -- white florals and woods. I have been having a partial bottle of it for sale in the Sale forum for the longest time and nobody was even remotely interested.

    Anyhow, we are as hot as Florida here today -- my thermometer is showing 82F, but it is the last day of warm weather, they said. Spritzing on some Terre d'Hermes for the afternoon.

    Tao, the names are funny (twins, Roughnut and Toughnut, for example), the humor is dry, the ships, seascapes/landscapes are magnifisent, almost said that makeup and costumes (hahahaha) would be nominated for the Academy Award, and then decided that they probably would not! :-)

    Aloha to my fragrant sistahs and bros! I am on vacation in my homeland and very happy to be here. SotD is Vanilla Galante.

    Chaya, that MH Jasmin Vert sounds like my kind of thing – thanks for the description!

    Zibeline, you smell extra-pretty in your Dianthus. Love that one.

    Happy travelling, Mysticknot, and welcome home!

    Trikkirikki, so sorry you are having problems. Hugs to you.

    RainDropSparkle (waving from island to island), I recently discovered Calandre, too. I really like it despite the slightly scary aldehydes!

    I love that description - "slightly scary aldehydes" - goes along with Animal's slightly scary but adorable grin. Happy vacation H! (I'll PM you later!)
