    Today, it's NOT Mitsouko, but Guerlain's L'Heure Bleue vintage EdT. So soft.

    mysticknot, do tell what you think of the Champaca. This is one that I will be seeking very soon.

    SotD for the morning is Lili Bermuda Petals EDT: notes are night blooming honeysuckle, sparkling seringa, watery orange blossom, jasmine sambac, refreshing clementine and white musk. I find it a tad too soapy for my taste.

    Cello, get better soon, Lessa, keep sleeping well, and (((((RHM))))). . . . Evangeline, your description of Balmy Days & Sundays has officially put me over the edge. I believe that I will be sampling that scent before the month is out. Wearing Le Temps d'une Fete today, which is also a stunning green floral, btw. Take care, all.

    I dumped almost a 1/3 of a 1.5 ml sample of CnR Create Aries on my arm to give it a final longevity test.

    I tried several of these perfumes and I tend to like their smell, but all the ones I've tried seem to vanish from my skin in two hours. It's now or never, I'm going to finally find out if I just need to apply more!

    Evangeline, isn't Balmy Days and Sundays nice? I was pleasantly surprised by it. here's something green but with a lazy attitude rather than jolt of energy other greens tend to give me.

    Mr. G, what a beautiful picture!

    Oh pooh! I'd love to send you some of mine, but I only have a decant with me here and I won't be back to my bottle for several weeks yet. But honestly, you really should get the complete sampler library anyway - it's perfectly charming and you can apply its cost ($25) to the purchase of a full bottle!




    Warum - yes, "lazy" is a good word for it.

    C Rose - I find that a day can be divided into seven distinct timeblocks when I'm feeling fickle - morning, late morning, afternoon, late afternoon, early evening, evening and bedtime. I find wet chores to do if the last scent needs some help disappearing - usually washing dishes or lingerie - then I'm on to the next!

    Hi Evangeline! Glad it's not just me being fickle all day!
    My day typically breaks down as:
    Coffee in bed (this is usually Hiris for some reason)
    Morning (this is the one usually listed as my SOTD)
    Afternoon
    Evening
    and Reading in bed (usually Carnal Flower or Iris Poudre)

    (I don't need the wet chores as the fragrances dissipate all by themselves, usually!)

    Lessa, I can relate, having had a peculiar past 24 hours. Hoping to get back on track tonight. See you in dreamland.
    Dear me, what a fret, RHM. If daughter can stand a hug, give her one from me.
    Don't believe I've said a proper welcome to Warum: Welcome!
    Many nice photo finds again today, mes amis.

    Ah, but did you win?

    You Balmy Days converts have me pulling out the sample vial. Hmmm. Either I'm not quite girly enough or Highland Lilac simply casts a more floral impression for me.

    Trying Macchia Mediterranea layered with Black Vetyver Cafe. Not bad at all, and I think I can transition from here to Cadjmere later on.

    I love CdG Champaca - it's a luscious ,unusual floral , warm flower perfume,exotic,creamy and a little spicey ,rounded ,a bit of tuberose ,abit of pepper in it.It also smells much like jonquil. It's not loud but it lasts . I think it's 15 % concentration EDP . Very lovely, quality - one of its kind to me. It's a personal scent I think - not in terms of sillage - but to me Champaca means exotic lands, hindu temples, flower corsages in a hot climate ,yoga,vedanta and spirituality. It also reminds me of the jonquil in Vol de Nuit.

    Galamb Borong loves it too and he has his own reasons for loving the smell too !

    This afternoon, I am terribly tired and everything has caught up with me. I have yet to choose a scent to wear and I think I need to lie down ! Racked with insomnia lately .

    Today has been all about Amazone (the vintage juice.) another cool, damp day, rice paddy weather, warmer but not by much this afternoon. And there I was luxuriating in green with a touch of tropical floral chypre splendor!

    Well, first thanks for mentioning Highland Lilac -- I went ahead and ordered a sample to wait for along with my TPC order of lilac samples!
    But then, are you thinking about Ineke's lilac scent? That's her A, After My Own Heart, and she confirmed that she meant it as a lilac soliflore. Balmy Days and Sundays has a more grassy feel to me, with sweetness of honeysuckle. Just curious.

    Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Or, as we tend to say near Milwaukee: yah, yah, yah, yah. Good catch, W! And I have a hard time picking up honeysuckle notes, so I'm probably not grasping the full effect of Balmy-D.

    RHM, please tell DD that Matt is filming for the next Storm Chasers starting this week (if the weather cooperates, that is). Hope that cheers her up and that she is feeling better ...

    cello, hope your ankle is feeling better too ... and all you insomniacs get some needed sleep soon!

    And oh... darn... forgot to wave hi at everyone, wish those who had birthdays over the weekend HB ...

    And to warum... find some unscented moisturizer (I even use expeller-pressed coconut oil as it has no coconut smell and is cheaper than a tube of unscented whatever) and moisturize the heck out of your skin before you apply. I have to do this and it does seem to help the longevity some.

    Warum, I know we have already welcomed you, but I just wanted to mention that I like your style and your descriptions make me alert. I think it is a very high praise. I would like to get one like that once in a while.

    Evangeline, Balmy Days and Sundays was the only one of the whole line of 4 -- back then! -- worth trying. Please enjoy it. (I smiled reading about "wet chores" and thought "dishes and sinks" as applicable to us here.)

    Good vibes to cello, 30R., and all of you.

    I have been working at work and sleeping at home. My tooth is bothering me again only now it is a dull sort of You-Know-What-To-Do pain that drives me batty. Wearing XerJoff feminine fragrances -- like 3 each day -- and falling hard for Ibitira. How much harder do I have to work now to be able to buy the full bottle?

    Welcome mariabar! I am intrigued by your layering strategy!

    actiasluna, thanks! That's a great idea! Would you mind PMing me what you use and where you get it? I find it hard to get anything unscented -- lots of things that are marketed unscented actually smell to me, and not necessarily in the most pleasant way. But coconut oil sounds promising, especially since it doesn't seem to have coconut smell!

    Wow, thanks, high praise indeed! Thank you so much. I loooove talking about perfumes, what they smell like, how they make me feel, and if a free association/image/song come in, I share it but I'm not searching for them consciously. I live in my head a lot and I want to keep perfume in more sensory realm of my life. I write more in my BN blog to make my SOTD posts shorter

    So you're another one who is not impressed by Chemical Bonding - how can this be??
    I have Evening Edged in Gold and Field Notes From Paris at the top of my list for late summer...I take it you haven't tried these? I'm actually doing my best to talk myself out of things at the moment, so if you have any bad-mouthing to do about them it would be most appreciated!

    Good luck with that tooth Wolfie - I can hardly think of a more nagging pain than toothache! Hugs to you!!

    Best wishes for the week to get better. Mondays are icky! There must be something in the air because I could not sleep last night and today I was out of it all day.

    Today I wore the very beautiful Eau de Patou, inspired by Gupts.
