    I'm sailing off to work in Van Cleef & Arpels Bois d'Iris, thanks to a sample shared by MysticKnot. Now I see what so many of you have raved about. What a beauty!!!

    Congratulations, Soirdelune, and best wishes with your new position!

    Taolady, let's make April 30 Peony Day. Enjoy your flowers!

    Lilybelle, I'm glad you ended up liking Cabaret. I just love that one, too!

    SotE: Guerlain's warm Héritage EdP. I noticed something slightly funny today: I have two tester bottles of it, both with batch codes from the 1992-1999 era, but the "Dominant notes" description on them are not the same - one says "woody-spicy, lavender, coriander, patchouli", the other says "woody, hesperides, pepper, tonka bean". I have often noticed this variation in description on Guerlain testers. Seems like Guerlain can't decide what is really dominant? But oh, I love it, whatever it is!

    I'll be repainting my nails orange today, totally fanning it up for the sixth (and... hopefully... FINAL!) game of the quarterfinals tonight.

    Perfect for this quiet spring day,

    C Rose, that is going to be the world's best-smelling jury box.



    I'm in a sample of Serge Lutens Datura Noir, which smells slightly narcotic and poisonous. I love it! I should never have ordered so many expensive niche samples, because there's no way I'm going to pony up for a full bottle of them and I might have been happier in blissful ignorance.

    Congrats, Soirdelune!!! Oh, 30 Roses, I am glad your mother is doing well! I wore AL Black Coconut layered over BK Liaisons Dangereuses to bed last night and the overall effect was quite nice. The resulting combination put me in the mood for AL Viva, so that will be my scent today. Have a lovely Thursday and take care, all.

    I'm wearing VW Boudoir today. This is one I find not very work appropriate so I save it for a day off, like today.

    Tao, I LOVE the peonies in the cobalt blue pitcher! It's still a little early for the peony blooms here, but the lilacs are on their final days. I have a cobalt blue vase filled with lilacs in our entry way right now ... so pretty and so fragrant!

    Sending congratulations to soirdelune on the new job!

    Hello dear BNers - Hope your day is going well.

    Add my congratulatory hug to soirdelune !

    SOTD: Rykiel Woman

    Notes from the Rei Rien website (one of my favorite places to shop!): "Top notes are pink pepper, violet and dates; middle notes are jasmine, rose, pepper and sunflower; base notes are leather, amber and musk."

    When I first read the notes (before I tried it), I thought that the pink pepper would just kill it for me. Probably, I foolishly thought, yet another messy fruity thing. How wrong could I be? Think "cuddly Oriental" - i.e., a well-blended floral, amber-y, slightly sweet concoction. Smells like a hug feels.

    What's up with the bottle, though?

    Have a great day, all!

    SotAfternoon is Dior Homme...what a masterpiece! I love the bottle, I love the way it sprays. I love every single note. I love the progression all the way to the last fading note.

    Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely Twilight - this is very powdery and musky on me; much nicer than a the label 'celebrity flanker' might suggest. It's very easy to wear and I like how it has a very gentle yet comforting vibe.

    Lessa, that was actually from the recent release shown here. http://www.nstperfume.com/2008/09/25...ew-fragrances/ I got it from LuckyScent. Sadly, it appears they no longer carry it. I wonder what is up with that?

    SoTD: Chanel No. 19. This evening I received the bottle of JPG Classique from Lilybelle and of course, immediately spritzed! Not bad. (I think several days of testing scents "out of my usual range" have opened me up to some new.) Will probably not continue the Xerjoff test tonight as the wind is really strong here and now my head is full of dust bunnies... sigh. I so love the Spring, except for that allergy stuff that is. But tomorrow...

    Oh... and CONGRATULATIONS soirdelune!
