I've been enjoying the spring weather for a good few weeks instead of checking in with you guys, but I'm back (for today anyway...). I've missed you!
Wearing Comme des Garcon's Series 5 Sherbert Rhubarb for today's Sniff'n'Speak.
Have a great May Day y'all!
Starting off S'n'S Fruity Saturday in Berkeley Square Fig and Cherry. (Thanx Wordy!!)
- Top Notes
- Cassis, Apricots, Sweet berries, Cherry blossom.
- Sweet Soft Figs, Musk.
- Cedar, Amber, Musk
Despite it's modest cost and unlikely combination this is a fun frag of some breeding that on me is more fig than cherry and the cherry is lifelike and not icky.
Since it doesn't last more than a couple hours I'll be taking along a spritzer of something else (mystery!) for the rest of the day cuz I'm gonna be out for a long time.
Can't wait to see what you guys'll be sporting!!

John Varvatos today -- EdP, long lasting drunken berries on the smooth woody tonka base.
Good to see you posting again, trikki!! Missed you!
To celebrate the first day of the best of the months, I´m joining N_Tesla in Mitsouko. The ultimate masterpiece.
I wish for love, good health and sunshine to all of you!
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Happy May Day All!
Wafting incense-y L'Erbolairio Myhrrae today.....
Getting all spiffed up for my teaching gig at Perfume School today. Hope to see some of my local fumeheads today.
For May Day I am going to wear

Have a Super Saturday everyone.

Hello you lovely BN beasties!
I jumped into the fruit basket early by wearing Trish McEvoy’s Sexy #9 last night. Sweet, dripping blackberry with musk and patchouli and amber looping it up in the background. May be better in the winter since it’s rather heavy. Was thinking about going with Frapin 1270 today, but once I saw TaoLady’s post with the word “fig” in it, I reached in the drawer for Thymes Fig Leaf & Cassis, which has that lovely juxtaposition of sweet and tart or fruity and green. Poor DH is going to come home from the blood center after donating and wonder what stinks. Sorry, honey, I’ll stay outside so you won’t have to smell me.

Aw, I totally missed the memo on Fruity S'nS.
Jil Sander Sun today, though the sun is only now actually coming out. Am pooped as I've been up since the ungodly hour of 4 am. Whyyyyy? I'm surviving on pure caffeine, I tell you.
Take care all.
It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.
Had the first shift today at work,so had to be up at the insanely early hour of five!:O Due to that I also forgot about S'n'S ....Wore Feminite du bois...and it has a plum note,so it kind of counts,right? Now an after work shower and I'll try to find something fruity for the evening.
Later:Ended up with Poison as my fruity sotE. Need a scent with a bit of bite to it to keep me going for the rest of the day!

Wearing Jean Patou's Colony for SNS Saturday. Its pineapple note is perfect today.
Have a great Saturday, everyone!
I have dug in the 'not currently wearing' box and come up with Emporio Armani She and, for the evening, Emporio Armani Night She. These were put away for being too 'perfumey'. They aren't true fruity florals, but the top notes look worthy of SNS today!
Starting out with the first:
Top Notes: Pineapple, Bergamot, Pear, Tangerine
Middle Notes: Muguet, Orris, Jasmine, Heliotrope
Base Notes: Tonka, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Musk
The fruity top notes are soft and nicely blended, the pineapple sticks out the most, not fresh but creamy. I have a stuffy nose, today, which usually erases 'green', so this is probably a bit skewed! They are also quite fleeting, leaving the floor clear for a clean, pretty floral. Of note for Taolady, The Guide describes this as 'woody peony'!

For today's Fruity SnS, I am wearing Tropical Passionfruit EDT by Bath and Body Works. This was a lovely RAOK from 30 Roses and I'm loving the juicy passionfruit note right now. DH is smoking huge hunks of meat to make pulled pork sandwiches later today and somehow the tropical fruit is contrasting nicely with the smokiness of our backyard smoker.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
I'm wearing Lilly Pulitzer Squeeze to start off Fruity Sniff 'n Speak this morning. I'm not sure what I'll graduate to later. It's going to the 90s F here, perfect fruity frag weather.
Happy May Day!
Heady fruit and sassy nuts are lifted by the gentle florals here.
Soothing cocoa and decadent vanilla, tease and delight.
I'm ready for candlelight and a beautiful party, now!
1270 Notes; exotic woods, spice, raisin, vine flowers, pepper, candied orange,

See my blog; http://www.basenotes.net/blogs/2645-kumquat
Guerlain's Eau de Cologne Impériale was created for the Empress Eugénie by perfumer and founder of the House of Guerlain, Pierre-François Guerlain. It is described as "a blend of orange, lemon and bergamot associated with lavender and rosemary." This is "my" kind of fruity fragrance!
I was gifted with a bottle of this but never opened it until last night. It's perfect for hot weather and since today is supposed to be a record breaker, it's perfect.
This is the actual pyramid listed on basenotes:
"Top Notes: Bergamot, Neroli, Verbena, Lemon, Orange
Middle Notes: Lavender
Base Notes: Cedarwood, Tonka Bean."
Don't know where the rosemary has gone......
This scent is no longer on the Guerlain website. It is, however, available at several online discounters.

Today I've layered my new L'Occitane Honey & Lemon shimmering EdT over B&BW Verbena & Lemon EdT...very nice! The honey and the muted vanilla notes mellow the citrus. Not that I don't like the Verbena & Lemon solo, but today this is a pleasant variation on the theme.
