    Inspired by Evangeline, I am planning to wear Aromatics Elixir today. Right now I am about to head for bed, but once I am showered and ready to go, AE it will be. Have a great Monday and take care, all.

    Had our own Palooza of sorts -- you know, what was available -- TJMaxx, Macy's, a few boutiques, came with a box of Italian soaps :-) and was seduced by a crushed velvet pouch of John Varvatos EdP in that fancy shade of bleached maroon -- fresh terracotta.

    Back from the retreat (and yes! It was wonderful. All the rain we've been having plus the coolish spring brought everything to full flower and the Abbey grounds are a wash of pinks and reds and creamy whites against a backdrop of ancient oaks hung with Spanish moss.) to find a bag of goodies from dear Bloomy!

    As a result have joined the rose parade in a sample of Miller et Bertaux

    Bvlgari Blv. Corporate, with a twist! I love the way the top notes pop in and out all day, all professional. Then, come 5'oclock, it dries down all soft and warm for hometime.

    Notes: lemon, ginger, bergamot, wisteria, acacia, musk, sandalwood, flax, vanilla

    Hello everyone!

    I'm honored to be scent-twins with Leesee today, in my left-over (and still perfect!) Aromatics Elixir - I literally showered in it (then slathered and sprayed) so it's on for a while!

    Creed is not my favorite house, but among the many I've tried Green Irish Tweed is probably my favorite; however it never wowed me. Giving it another shot today from a set of samples I still have.

    today i am in Ted Baker's Second Scent. Bought it on a whim at the Ted Baker store in Las Vegas one year. It is a bit heady and I may have over applied.

    Notes from Fragrantica:
    Secondscent by Ted Baker is a oriental floral fragrance for women. The nose behind this fragrance is Sophie Labbe. Top notes are hawthorn, lily-of-the-valley and anise; middle notes are jasmine, heliotrope and tiare flower; base notes are sandalwood, musk and vanilla.

    It's a bit fumey and heady. It's very sweet too, with monstrous sillage.
    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.
    -George Bancroft {1800-1891 American Historian}

    current favorites:
    Balmain Jolie Madame, Serge Lutens Muscs Kublai Khan

    I tried Green Irish Tweed and I was surprised at how much I like it.

    This morning , I am sampling Chanel Gardenia from dear RainDropSparkle who sent me a sample of it.

    Hi, Everyone!

    Back from Sniffapalooza and still reeling (from both olfactory and positive emotional overload) so I am bare naked today!Will likely be in something orange-y later, as neroli kept (unexpectedly!) floating my boat this weekend (Eau de Tarocco! Le Labo Tuberose! Guerlain eau de Cologne!) - But what did I *buy* this weekend? Krieger Cognac EDP... Can't quite seem to wrap my nose around summer yet.
    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... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    I hope Taolady had a relaxing time on her retreat. We're back from a week on Hatteras Island, NC. That was a very relaxing week as well. Mike, your favorite comfort scent, Shalimar edc, is also one of mine. I was thinking about wearing it this morning, but I reached for Annick Goutal's Gardenia Passion instead.

    I hope everyone is well.
