    Am going to bed soon here in the U.S.A., but plan on layering Calèche by Hermès with Ivoire de Balmain tomorrow (5/3), in this continuing streak of cold, wet, overcast days. It's really a nice combo!

    The cats and I are turning in. Good night and have a wonderful day everyone!

    Happy belated Birthday to Therese! I hope you had a lovely day.

    I'm wearing Ava Luxe Neroli Blossom this morning.


    When I was a little girl of about nine or ten, my mother brought me a souvenir orange blossom perfume from a trip she made to Florida. The glass bottle was contained in a round wooden ball made to look like an orange. This Ava Luxe fragrance takes me right back to the day I first opened that bottle and sniffed that strange and magical odor. Ava Luxe’s smells so pure and true - bitter green, pungent, resinous, and also sweet and rich as honey. I smell all parts of the plant in it. A heavenly scent!

    Have a good day, all!

    Dora, Somehow I missed reading about the death of your dear brother-in-law in yesterday's thread. So sorry to hear of it, and I will be praying for you and your family.

    I'm wearing my little figgy sample of Fico di Amalfi-- I spritzed before dressing, so got a bit of it on my clothing and want to see how long it lasts this time. (On bare arm, only 1.5 hours last time.)



    EDIT: Well, Fico di Amalfi didn't last much longer under clothes than it did on bare skin. It was nice while it lasted, but I'm not someone who wants to respray often.

    Bond - Eau de New York
    Snappy citrus and rich neroli are reminders
    of the sparkle and life in the resilient city.
    A cheerful scent that fortifies as I rush about my busy day.

    Eau de New York was released in 2004.
    The fragrance was created by nose Vera Vanore of Robertet,
    with notes of grapefruit, mandarin, bergamot, petit grain, fresh greens,
    neroli, gardenia, cyclamen, white lily, basil, verbena, jasmine, vetiver,
    oakmoss, skin musk, and white wood.

    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*...

    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.

    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.

    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...
