    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...

    Also, need to try out the new L'Occitane Paeonia again, that little swab sample just wasn't enough for a proper testing.

    SotD yesterday and today is Chanel No.5 EP layered with No.5 parfum, inspired by a thread on the FFD. Interesting combo...I think there is something about the EP that reminds me of No.22 as it really sweetens up the parfum.

    Happy Birthday to Strolly and Mr. mysticknot! And welcome to our new BNers!

    I'm feeling discouraged tonight because DH and I just had our third day of furniture browsing. This is our second major attempt to agree on bedroom furniture (the first was nearly 10 years ago when we were just starting out). It's tough because he really likes Arts and Crafts and I'm very traditional (a little fluting, or rosettes, or other architectural embellishments, maybe burled wood or some inlay design, Hepplewhite drawer pulls, etc.). I want furniture that's interesting and pretty, and A&C is just not that at all to me. Today we were supposed to look at just a few manufacturers we've decided we like, get some prices on a couple of collections we can actually agree on, and make a decision in the next few days. Then, after we did all that all afternoon, we got home tonight and he asked me to check out a website called Simply Amish. I already had, I don't like it, I'm upset, he thinks I don't compromise, and we were both miserable. Yet somehow we realized that after 6 hours of furniture shopping at three different stores up and down the penninsula (again) we're both just really tired and cranky and we'll pick it up again tomorrow or so. In the meantime, I'm going to try to find a nice dinette set in a Mission/Craftsman style and maybe we can compromise in that direction. I hate that this is so hard, and I don't want either of us to spend the next 30 years staring at something we don't like, feeling resentful, in our *bedroom* of all places.

    Gosh, some problem, eh? I'm really so lucky.

    Fortunately, my new bottle of L'Occitane Peony helps make everything better. That and the sure knowledge that I've got a really swell husband.
