Lovely orange blossom and honey... I imagine that bees will find me irresistible today.

Finally a warm day here, wearing Perry Ellis Reserve.
Habit Rouge Beau Cavalier.
Riverside Drive by Bond No.9
Started off this morning comparing the new Miss Dior EDT on my right arm and vintage Miss Dior on my left. Both are lovely, but WOW what a difference! The vintage, which I think is parfum, opens so much sharper and more green. It is more complex and I definitely get leather here. The new version is much lighter, softer and more sweet as well. Not scents for young girls at all.
I used to hate frags like this when I was younger, now I can't get enough of it. I guess I've become the proverbial *old lady*...
Deep Red by Hugo Boss, followed by:
Curious by Britney Spears, followed by:
Escada Moon Sparkle, so far...
I just returned from a trip to California, so am still in holiday mode (even though I've still got a wretched cold).

Good morning, dear BNers...happy belated birthday wishes to Therese, and my condolences to dora. Hugs to all as we brace ourselves for another week. Had an awful headache on Saturday, but yesterday was a fun and relaxing day.
What have I been wearing? Well, headache on Sat. meant nothing (that is, no fragrance). Yesterday afternoon, I tried Balenciaga Paris. It was not good on me, unfortunately (I thought the first testing was really pretty good, but yesterday it was overwhelmingly "plasticky".) I tried to scrub and then dab over some Verte Violette. This layering experiment failed, though. All it did was amplify one particular thing about (some) violet scents....
Last night, I wore Rochas Femme to bed. If the vintage is better, it must be simply spectacular, as I really enjoy the current version.

A little unconventional for me to wear to work, I know, but it jazzes up the button-down, cardi, and jeans.

I have moved on to trying out my L'Artisan Parfumeur Vanilia, (which I blind bought...baaad bloomy). But I kinda like it!
Cologne A La Russe by Institut Tres Bien
A springtime staple.
This morning, ubu, Therese & I were scent siblings, wearing three different Neil Morris fragrances.
This afternoon, Kumquat & I were scent sisters wearing Bond No 9 Eau de New York.
Tonight Le Duc & I are scent twins wearing Poison edt. (Mine's not vintage though.)
I feel as if I am "in tune" with my basenote family today. It's been a delightfully smelly day.

Welcome to Basenotes Whitelace
This afternoon it's Tabac Blond extrait. Feeling a like a strong woman this afternoon I guess.
Havana tonight. There are few better and not many equals. The drydown is just superb.

Léonard de Léonard for the day, Xerjoff Casamorati Mefisto for the test of the evening.
Love both of them, and the Leónard de Leónard is so fragrant on me, I was worried about becoming Sillagezilla! But no... the office mate didn't even notice. Although I usually do wrists, backs of hands, inner elbows, ears, chest... only Guerlain Coriolan had her saying "wHoof! That's strong!"
And after a few hours of Mefisto loveliness, I'm wearing Shalimar for the rest of the eve/night.
Best to all...

I finally showered up to go run some errands... in a delicious cloud of Serge Lutens Fleurs de Citronnier.
I am in Rochas Femme today. I have just a mini of this scent but I liked it so much all day long that I wish I had a full bottle of it. I must say, before I sign off, that everyone smells divine. Take care, all.
So sorry, Dora.
Laguna for me today, don't know how I missed this before
My Sote.....Chez Bond by Bond No.9
Guerlain Chamade for this evening. Busy (at work) and lazy (at home) again, I wish it were vice versa.
Q., that's sweet about developing the relationship for over 50 years.
RHM -- kisses your way, just because.
Twolf is smelling divine !
Schizoid with my perfume today - Carnal Flower this evening - final change ! *LOL*
I'm wearing Cuir de Lancome today. I spritzed this on early this morning at 6:30 before leaving for work. I've enjoyed it all day long, but thought that it was long gone by now. After almost 14 hours at work, wearing scrubs, I changed back into my clothes to go home. ahhhh ... the sweet/astringent smell of hawthorn + leather clinging to my shirt from this morning ... such a lift!

I wore Theirry Mugler Alien today. its been a while since I've worn this and I forgot how strong it is. Put it on before leaving for work this morning and now I'm back at home and this fragrance is still going strong. I hope I didnt offend any of my coworkers because I am sure that I over spritzed. Next time only one spritz of this stuff!
Today I wore Serge Lutens' Louve. I got the comment that I smelled like baby powder even before I reached my office.
I seldom get comments.
You all smell lovely. I need to try some N. Morris perfumes.
Still on a road trip with my dear dad- yesterday's SOTD was La Mome, and today No5 Eau Premiere again.
Well, didn't you all smell beautiful today?! Welcome to Basenotes, whitelace! And Primrose, I'm sorry that you're under the weather. Get well soon!
I did a rare repeat day – Felanilla again. YUM!!!
Pleasures for me today.
