    Bois des Iles parfum. This is entering my top 10. Possibly top 5, but it's going to be an expensive habit, as I have to use quite a lot of it compared to other Chanels.

    Very rainy and grey here as well; the weather turned sharply this afternoon and now it's rather gloomy.

    I wore Bvlgari Pour Femme - recently purchased; very lovely heavy floral on me with a great 'lipstick' feel.

    Good morning all. I'm in a weird mood today. It's 11 years on this very date that one of my bestfriends commited suicide Obviously the scars have kind of healed with time,but I can't help but to think about her on this particualr day every year non the less Ironically me and the boyfriend are invited to a birthday to a friend of ours later. Must also finish editing my part of two group assignments...so got plenty of program today and hardly any focus Sotd is Poison.

    ((inees)) I completely understand. It's nearly 18 years since my brother died and I'm always a bit scattered on the anniversary of his death. Accept the feelings as normal and go with the flow.

    Haven't chosen my SotD yet, will repost when I do. I have lots of fussy financial/legal jobs to do for Mom today, and I'm still unpacking boxes from Florida (sigh).

    Vintage Miss Dior edt for me today (yes, yes, I know. )
    The topnotes have that nasty burnt 'off' edge to them that I always hate having to get past, but now, an hour in, the heart has just overcome them and has just wafted up to my nose and made me say 'what's that lovely smell? Oooh! It's me!'
    Don't you love it when that happens?

    Hugs to you Ines. Memories of people we have lost are always a little stone in our shoe for the day. Good to remember them, sad to know they have gone. Especially sad when it was suicide. Makes me want to put my arm round your shoulder and give you a little squeeze. {}

    Sunny day at Stately Somerville Manor and it should be a busy one too.
    Here is hoping a little of the sun can brighten up those of us who are feeling a little blue.
    I'm just happy I can stop boiling water.

    Wearing one of my new acquisitions from Sniffapalooza:

    Krigler Established Cognac 66

    This was probably the most unique fragrance I experienced all Sniffapalooza weekend. It smells like fine cognac and the barrels that it is aged in and a weird little banana note which reminds me a bit of bananas foster the dessert. I'm sure this isn't for everyone but it is definitely for me.

    Have a Tip-Top Tuesday everyone.

    No. 3 of my Keiko Mecheri Samples - Cuir Cordoba

    Notes: suede chord, bergamot, iris butter, atlas cedarwood, hawthorn blossom, black violet, elemi, patchouli, sandalwood, benzoin

    I'm beginning to spot a house style, at least amongst the fragrances I was drawn to. Kittens. Keiko Mecheri takes contemporary, nichey feeling concepts and makes them adorable and kittenish and wearable. This is a buttersoft violet suede, like an offcut of fabric that you buy intending to do something with but it's just so soft and lovely you don't want to risk ruining it so you put it away and bring it out occasionally to nuzzle when you need cheering up.

    Pieces of nuzzly soft suede to those who need them ;)

    I have come to the conclusion that the shimmering EdT version (which has apricot, and less vanilla than the original version) of L'Occitane Miel & Citron/Honey & Lemon is a fantastic layering fragrance.

    I layered it today over The Thymes Limón and the combination is yummy! The apricot and honey balance and soften the black currant note of Limón. I'll be interested to see if this makes Limón more wearable in hot, humid weather, when it usually turns gamey on me.

    Ines, I'm so sorry. I hope that the birthday party is cheering.

    Today I grabbed one of the random samples a salesperson threw in with a purchase -- Ellen Tracy Inspire. I wore it once a few weeks ago and it seemed mildly pretty; today it opened with muddled artificial sweetness and musk/woods, no discernable notes just a big indeterminate smell, and was pretty unappealing. i think melon might have been to blame. Now, it has settled sweet but with a little sharp citrus -- wearable and inoffensive, but I think two tries with ths one are enough. I could have spent the day smelling something so much nicer!

    Big hug for all of you dear BNers, with an extra one for Ines and all others who could use one...

    Yesterday's scent choice (Agent Provocateur) seemed like a good one at the time, but by late afternoon, I felt like it was a complete mismatch for the office.

    SOTD: JM Vintage Gardenia

    I'm enjoying my sample of this one very much. I think I might be loving the mix of the floral note with the myrrh. I sometimes get a whiff of the cardamom, but today it's all about the myrrh. Love, love, love....

    You all smell fabulous, by the way...and Petra Ichor's comments on KM Cuir Cordoba have reminded me that I MUST put this one on my "to try" list.

    I'm sharing the house with Tao today ... I am testing Bond High Line today.

    Never in a million years, would I think I would like a fragrance with the word "grass" in the notes list. Just goes to show ... never say never! This stuff is the bomb! (does anyone say that anymore??) I got THREE compliments today, the first one before I even got in the door at work. One of my co-workers was walking behind me and said she was enjoying the scent so much, she didn't want to catch up and walk with me! (I promise, I had only three sprays on!) Still, it is SO different for me, I need to wear a few more times before I decide if it is FBW.

    I'm wearing Invasion Barbare today from a teensy decant I've been hoarding. After a full day's wearing I can safely say I no longer need to have a full bottle of this scent, but it certainly is compelling. Have a great evening and take care, all.
