    Yesterday was SJP Covet--lavender, lemons, and chocolate with bitter greens. Fun scent.

    Today is the green, soothing Balmain de Balmain. Moving house today (just across town though)... wish me luck. More fragrances to worry about than last time, lol.

For me, "pretty patchouli" was an oxymoron until I tried that one. I never would have tried it but a Basenoter sent me a sample and I fell in love with it.
    Thanks Lilybelle - I will have to try it out. The other wisteria I loved was Wisteria by Crabtree and Evelyn . It's beautiful but after a while in evolves into tuberose and smells somewhat like Fracas . ( I love Fracas but I guess I expect Wisteria to smell like wisteria - though I am still unsure exactly what wisteria actually smells like . )
    Wisteria reminds me of London and how some townhouses in London are covered in wisteria come summertime- they really are beautiful flowers - they remind me of grapes too - I don't know why ! I never did stop to smell the flowers either and I don't know why too - too busy ,always rushing ...............

    Lavanila Vanilla Blossom, from a random sample I've had lying around. The first time I tried it I couldn't stand it -- SO MUCH VANILLA, I'm not a cupcake -- but today I'm kind of liking it. There's something leafy in there tempering the vanilla.

    I remember C&E's Wisteria fragrance. I never owned it but used to take a spritz whenever I saw a tester somewhere. It was irresistible, esp. because of the packaging. I will miss Crabtree & Evelyn. Wisteria (the growing kind) has a faint, sweet, almost fruity scent. It smells like it looks.

    Hey y'all!

    I'm so excited!! I'm wearing a gorgeous new-to-me fragrance, thanks to a recommendation from an_oud_girl! It's Roberto Cavalli's Oro, and it's incredible! It's very well-blended and I can't pick out any of the individual floral notes...maybe some iris....but I'm enjoying just basking in it too much to care to analyze it. This is a case in which the notes in question sold me, and they absolutely live up to my opinion of them in this beautiful fragrance! I'm so glad I kept up with Hillaire's Unsung Treasures thread - there are lots of great recs there so be sure to check it out!

    Oro was created by Maurice Roucel (love him!) in 2004, and the notes include iris, magnolia, cinnamon, apricot, blond honey, indian sandalwood, and amber.




    Thanks again aogirl - I'm over the moon!

    Good afternoon!

    Everyone is smelling lovely today!

    I started out with Niki de Saint Phalle today and, quite frankly, was intimidated by bitter and sour notes for the first two hours! Now she's nice and comforting, but still, she is not me. But it's my own fault, or should I say a trick of the changing coastal weather? The day started out cold and rainy, and now it's bright and sunny. I think I'll come back to her in the fall! She has nerves like ropes and a backbone made of steel... and that's just not me. Especially, not in the Spring.

    Y'all have a great day! Can't wait to see your SOtEs!

    Warum - it's incredibly good, it's inexpensive, and it's still available - the trifecta of fragrance!

    I'm so happy to hear that Evangeline is enjoying her Oro that I decided to join her in it today. We're having an overcast rainy day here, and I feel warmed and uplifted by it.

    Ha! In my enthusiasm I steamrolled right over your sotd, Gary - I bet your Bond No. 9 is adding an incredible element to the Oro sillage!

    Love the pic, Lilybelle, and can't wait for the riot of wisteria in Cambridge to bloom -- this city is laden with it.

    Wore a couple of dabs of Que Sais Je? in my cleavage today. Enjoying the fruity whiff some 12 hours later.

    I've just popped in to say "Hi" -- -- I'm in Panama City Beach and our UHaul is almost totally loaded up with Mom's stuff, with plans to drive north tomorrow. It's been a no-scent week for me-- very busy. I'm looking forward to being home in a few days.

    Mostly, anyway. I've been prepping sample decants for folks and can't help myself...

    (with a drop here and there from decanting Sycomore, Mademoiselle, Mirto de Panarea and... tiny traces of scrubbed-off Habit Rouge that wasn't working for me this morning, and a little bit of vintage Yatagan, Carven's Vetiver, and an even tinier trace of Hermes Equipage.)

    This afternoon , I am wearing Green Oakmoss by Liz Zorn of Soivohle. This is a mixed blend of naturals and synthetics. My word- it is a lovely green chypre. Mossy by name ,mossy by nature. I wonder if there is any oakmoss in this but it sure is yummy .
