    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am.

    It's gotten so I sometimes pick my frag of the day from my PBucket album instead of the etagere!! This looked perfect for a promising-to-be-warmer day....

    So, I have emboldened myself with one of my favourite "BACK OFF!" scents ... Balenciaga Rumba.

    Have I impressed upon you how much I love shoveling? No joke. I remember when I bought my favorite shovel, and it has shrunk from its original length due to my whittling it against the Earth. So, be happy for me, because today I am going outside to move soil and stone whilst wearing Sel de Vetiver and Black Vetyver Cafe.

    May you find your own shovel of happiness ~ Love, Quarry.

    Soir~ Rumba is a great "back off" scent. I wanted to back away from myself when I tested it!

    I see Quarry and Taolady in vetiver today. Very wise and savvy women, these two, so I'm going to twin up with Tao in L'Occitane Vetyver and emulate Quarry with some good yard work. Well, yard work will commence as soon as I get back from having some fasting labwork done (standard glucose test for preggy girls) and a nice big meal!

    Also, I hope some of you will see this-- L'Occitane is having a 50% off sale on selected products until 3:30 est time today. Unfortunately, I just checked my email a few minutes ago, but then it arrived only 90 minutes ago (15 mins after the sale started) and it looks like Basenotes is a big buggy. If I get any more of these quick notices, I'll be sure to pass them along.

    Good afternoon everybody! I had a quite morning today in contrast of hectic yesterday.
    Tried Ineke Chemical Bonding today since it was going around in this thread a last couple of days and I haven't tried it from my gorgeous Ineke's sample set yet.

    I agree with Hillaire's impressions from yesterday, it was a blast of lemon first, greenish lemon at that, but alas, with a slight chemical note that I didn't like. It does have nice peony smell (my North GA husband says PEAony! ), but it doesn't do anything to me that Lanvin's Eclat d'Arpege does, both with lemon and peony. In fact, I like both these notes better in L'Eclat.



    I have enough for one more wear, but it's not going to be a full bottle from Ineke. I think I'll get her lilac one, After my Own Heart unless I fall in love with Evening Edged in Gold -- that's the last to try!

    Ma Griffe!

    ValentinePerfume describes Ma Griffe thusly -- (I only wish I were half so eloquent:)
    Time lots elegance - there are things, to which the time cannot wear anything. In addition the smell classical author of grasps from that belongs Paris mode houses Carven. From the time of its spectacular launching the blumig aromatic smell stands on for exclusivity and struck Couture elegance. Gardenia, Limone, rose, Ylang Ylang, Styrax, Zimt and Eichenmoos underline the fascinating aura of a woman, who takes herself from the life, which wants it and which can afford the luxury of their singularness.

    Bois d'Ombrie by Eau d'Italie (from a sample)



    The tart sourness mixed with the peat/whiskey notes almost smells like an aldehyde, but a natural aldehyde...if that makes sense. I keep getting these strange whiffs all day. Not sure I like it as much as the Eau d'Italie signature scent (or Dzonghka by L' Artisan Parfumeur, it's twin brother), but I do like it infinitely more than when I first sampled it and wrinkled up my nose at it.
