    What a fabulous photo of Joan Collins, le Grand Duc.

    I'm in a more subtle fragrance testing Le Parfum de Therèse as yesterday. The more I get to know it the more I like it.

    SNOW???!!!

    And here's be bitchin' about the temps only goin' to the seventies! (F) My condolences folks.
    Trying out -thanks to Bloomy! - the newest Diorissimo and things are not going well. It's been years since I wore this and my memory is of a limpid muguet undergirded by the most tender jasmine with that richness one (I) associates with "fine French perfume".

    So far this is is strident and - burnt rubbery! After that first blast the jasmine - less than ladylike - came barreling through, still trailing the rubber. It's only been a short time. Maybe things will improve. Dommage!

    Welcome, Mariabar!

    Thanks to a divine perfume friend, I am wearing Cuir de Lancome today. This is the current version; starts with a slight birchy roughness, smoothing out into supple glove leather, then moves into gentle, soft florals (I'm picking out hawthorn and ylang ylang, mostly.) By contrast, the original (of which she also gave me a samp) puts me in mind some of Tabac Blond, only more powdery, with a vintagey vibe. Both are absolutely lovely.

    Have a lovely Sunday, all!

    Welcome to BN Mariabar!

    Good morning all....gonna start the day in Yves Rocher Pur Desire de Pivoine EDT thanks to the uber generous Taolady....however I am beginning to think that peonys simply need to stay in my garden and not on me. Every single peony frag that I have tried so far gets very bitter and chemically smelling on my person. Ah, the wonders of skin chemistry...

    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.

    Guerlain Eau de Coq this morning. The quintissential cologne: . intensely beautiful for a short while, then ethereal and fleeting to the fade point. I will carry a small decant with me to refresh when necessary. But yes, it is worth it!

    I have been wearing Yves Rocher's Un Jour Se Leve up until now and
    enjoying a spot of gardening and sunbathing. As we are off out to meet
    friends for a drink, I shall change to Roma. It is such a unique, lovely
    scent!

    Back from Sunday lunch, wearing Comptoir Sud Pacifique Thé. I ate two perfume ingredients - lavender with the lamb and tonka bean in the pudding!

    Welcome, mariabar. I tidied out my perfumes too, today!

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE that foxy picture of Joan Collins!

    Oh, Tao, isn't the new Diorissimo just awful? I hate to crow but (purely by coincidence) I am wearing my vintage Diorissimo EdC today. It's surely one of the greatest spring floral scents -- I'm almost swooning here!
