    Terre d'Hermes for me today. I never really rated this scent until recently. I can't decide whether I prefer the Parfum or the EDT.

    L'Occitane Eau D'Iparie, which is growing me as one of those suitable for all occasions but unusual scents. Rather like a mossy dry stone wall running through a meadow on a sunny day.

    Cadolle No 9. I snagged a mini on Ebay, and am I ever glad. What a beautifully rich floriental it is, with a lovely powdery note, very much like vintage face powder. A shame that it's all but impossible to come by.

    Take care, everyone!

    I've been MIA for a few days, dealing with insomnia-related issues. Now on a different medication that is NOT a sleeping pill. Fairly decent sleep last night.

    Wearing Bandit to start off the week. Grabbed DK Chaos for later this afternoon.

    YES YES YES dear scent- twin,I craved for BANDIT too, this morning, a little cloudy-or the ash from the volkano upon Europe?- even if I digged it in the closet 2 days ago, as considerin a " winter " scent. I spritzed some HERMES sur le Nil on the top to cheer it up.I do this sin with Bandit all the time, it 's my fragrance secret.Happy week every body!

    Cool and cloudy here after night rain - Cuir de Lancome for me today.
    I'm hopping along on a brand new ankle sprain from my tennis on Saturday - errrr, never had one before. Swollen and ugly, and it sure hinders my movement. Spent Sunday on the couch with my foot up on a pillow. Exciting.

    Hello everybody!

    I'm in Ineke's Balmy Days & Sundays today - fresh and green, softly floral and very pretty!

    Top: freesia, leafy greens, grass
    Middle: honeysuckle, rose, mimosa
    Base: chypre accent, musk



    tdem1961 - I haven't thought of it in ages, but I remember Cadolle No.9! Beautiful and luxurious face powder is what I recall it, too. I think Dawn Spencer Hurwitz has a version of it, but I've never tried it...and maybe Irma Shorell recreated it at one time also. Anyway, how fortunate you are to have found the original - enjoy it!

    Yikes, cello - owie! Sending healing vibes your way. Now you take care, and stay off that foot!


    Y'all have a wonderful day!

    Evangeline: I just ordered a bottle of Balmy Days last night! Isn't it just the perfect spring scent: green and hopeful?

    Today I am wearing another spring favorite: Diorella!

    @Lessa, I hope this med works out better fo you. Believe me, I understand.

    My daughter & I are just back from an early morning visit to the emergency room. She "may" be having a reaction/interaction between medications. More followup later today. Scared us both.

    I just spritzed some L'Artisan La Haie Fleurie du Hameau. This is a huge floral on me....maybe a tad too much for today. "Notes: jasmine, orange blossom, narcissus, ylang-ylang Perfumer: Jean-Claude Ellena" from L'Artisan's website.

    Must add this update: Bella (kitten) LOVES this fragrance. Ever since I put it on, she's been next to me, purring & head butting my left arm.

    It is hopeful, isn't it? I love it. It's so tranquil and calming for being a green and fresh sort of scent....not too vivacious or zesty, if you know what I mean. And it lasts a surprisingly long time! She makes quality stuff, that Ineke.

    Cello – ouch! I'm sorry. Lessa – it's good to see you! Petra, Kumquat, and Evangeline – your photos are beautiful and your fragrances all sound just lovely!

    I am trying KenzoAir (the EDT) for the first time. This fragrance was created by Maurice Roucel in 2003. Listed notes include anise, bergamot, Haitian vetiver, amber, and woods.

    Edit: I forgot to add that I'm just loving this fragrance! For any fans of anise and vetiver out there, this is a MUST try!
