    Today, a new one! Poppies, from First Impressions. I love how poppies frustrate pefumers with their lack of smell! This one interprets them as a dark deco chypre, with honey and apples.

    I wore Sonoma Scent Studio Vintage Rose today. I fear that my 5ml purse spray will not last too long as I can see this becoming a favourite through winter! I applied at 7am and by 2pm in the afternoon I could still smell it on my skin - lovely.

    Hey, hey, hey, big welcome and a hug from me to you, Nola1977!

    Something changed with nose/brain/juice/skin so that I’m re-attracted to Borsari Macchia Mediterranea. Is there fennel in there? I hate fennel. Why do I want to wear this? Just stop thinking and enjoy—right?!

    Like Antaeusintheair, I'm in Balmain's Jolie Madame today. Just received this yesterday (blind buy) and wow, LOOOVE it! So green and fresh, and as Antaeusintheair pointed out, violets and leather! If this were repackaged with an upscale bottle and was called, oh, "Unicorn Song," or something similarly evocative, it would cost $150 instead of $16.

    Evangeline, while back in Texas, I would say "Pe-O-ny" too, as rhyming with "Sony" and "pony". Here in the mid-north, everybody says "PE-a-ny", and I am going with the crowd. I spoke with Ms.Tao on the phone and she is with mid-north pronouncing it.

    With so much conversation about LB Roma in the recent days, I put it on -- wonderful! Why do not I even have it marked as "Own" in my Wardrobe? Am I going to get rid of it any time soon? -- somewhere inbetween Shalimar and Dune, delicate and victorious.

    Yeah - I asked her about it and was mildly surprised. I think I've been imagining her accent with a bit more moonlight and magnolias than is akshully the case!

    Very nice! I love how you make Roma sound...except for the part about the Shalimar, haha! Still, this almost sounds like a version of Shalimar that I might like.
