    Lilybelle- feel better soon- sinus infections are horrible.
    RHM - I hope you are getting better too- onwards ands upwards.

    This morning, I reached for the nearest item to spray which was Fracas EDP !

    Lilybelle, do get better and keep using that Neti pot!

    I'm enjoying the warm spring sunshine and my Gal Trebol (clover) perfume.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm joining petruccijc and Le Grand Duc at the Givenchy house party, wearing the radiant and glamorous Ysatis (as I'm sure you know Duc, this is the feminine counterpart to Xeyrus, which is one of fiance's favorites - I love it on him, too!) But back to me, Ysatis is such a luxurious sunny holiday sort of scent for me. I'm not sure why but it brings to mind cool marble hotel lobbies and sparkling swimming pools...and this sounds familiar so I must be repeating myself again.


    Created by Dominique Ropion in 1984, this opulent fragrance includes notes of ylang-ylang, galbanum, coconut, rose wood, jasmine, rose, iris, tuberose and narcissus. The base notes are musk, amber, vanilla, vetiver, patchouli, sandal wood and civet.


    kewart - I thought it was you that wears Fragonad's Fleur d'Oranger - I mentioned it recently in Hillaire's Unsung Treasures thread. I think it's a perfect breezy orange blossom scent - it's on my wish list along with Cerisier en Fleurs.

    taketheair - I love Quartz, and you make me realize how I've been neglecting it! I'm so glad to see it mentioned - it deserves more attention!

    Warum - I get what you mean about PWL. I get a certain tenderness from it that really tugs at my heart. Have you tried the flankers? I really like Pink Coral, but I might be the only one here who does!



    Y'all have a fabulous day!

    Mais non! Lilybelle, c’est tragique. It’s all the male plants’ fault, you know. They’re the pollen demons.

    RHM, wish I could loan you my honey for a hour, he can diagnose and fix anything. He doth make my sun rise and set.

    Another day in Macchia Mediterranea. Dill, musse? Really? Maybe. This one and Rue Royale are such mysteries. I'm thinking I need to take MM and RR to Boston in July for a group reading.

    Early early morning found me sampling Miss Dior which is lovely, but somehow not me.

    Have since showered and dabbed on Serge Lutens Tubereuse Criminelle... died and gone to Heaven.

    Love your violet pic, Petra Ichor.

    Neti pots are a life saver, no?

    Today wearing my new Vent Vert. Sweeter than I usually wear, but with a little spritz of Jolie Madame on top of it to green it up a bit, perfect!
    (I had a sample of the original Vent Vert in my basket at TPC, but have deleted it... for now I chose to remain ignorant, so I don't have to hate this scent for what is not!)


    Hope you're sniffer gets better soon, Lilybelle!
    Enjoyed the video, petruccijc!
    Is your birthday today Petra? (or did I misunderstand your post?)
    RHM - best wishes for a full recovery!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PETRA ICHOR!!!

    I noticed...and fortuitously happened to be wearing Creed Love in Black myself today, of which I also own a bottle, though it wasn't gifted to me!

    Get well soon, Lilybelle.

    I'm surprised to find that I really love this one. Perhaps, it will be my first FB from this line. Some know that one of my favorite floral notes is the gardenia, but I think it is very tricky to find the right one. (Well, maybe that's true for just about any note, right?) In any case, most JM's take on a funny staleness in the drydown, but this one doesn't seem to do so. Also, spice notes usually don't work at all on me. (Before trying it, I saw "cardamom" listed as a note, and I thought "oh, why even bother?"...but I'm glad I did! )

    This fragrance's blend of gardenia, cardamom, sandalwood, and myrrh is really pretty, and it's very different from almost every other gardenia I've tried. I'm particularly fond of the cardamom in this one (surprise!)

    Big round of sweet-smelling hugs for everyone...hope the week is winding down nicely!

    I'm wearing Cabotine, which is so cheap but it smells wonderful to me -- slightly sweet green juicy ginger and wet leaves.

    C Rose, I just ordered some Vent Vert, so I'm glad to see a positive review! Somehow I'm all about the green right now.

    Grrr...! Thanks so much for all of the get well wishes! This thing sucks. Very painful! I'm on antibiotics and tylenol. SotA was Britney Spears Midnight Fatnasy. I shouldn't have bothered.

    Happy Birthday to Petra Ichor!

    Ooh happy birthday Petra Ichor!

    (and commiserations with Lilybelle, I've a combo sinus/migraine no doubt spurred on by the massive male mulberry (triple-M evil!) which is shedding yellow pollen all over. And that stuff I can't see, which is more likely the culprit.)

    I'm finally not icky-feeling enough to enjoy some Guerlain Vetiver vintage EDT.

    Hi Thalia! Hope you like it! I'm really enjoying my new "cheap" greens: Jolie Madame, Ma Griffe, Vent Vert. There was a thread on green scents here recently--which is where I got info on these and others -- if I find it I'll send you a link.
