    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!

    Inees - big hugs! It's been over 20 years since my little brother has been gone. The tragedy of suicide lives on long after in so many ways.

    Driveby posting today cuz my house in the almost-finished-craziness. Tons of stuff to do and lots of lists to make. Today I am wearing Heeley Cuir Pleine Fleur, one of my fav leathers to fortify myself!

    Hugs to all who need them today!

    Inees, my condolences for your loss. It's so very hard to lose someone and, even though we eventually heal, a scar is always left behind on our hearts as a reminder.

    Taolady, I hope Brooklyn helps get you out of the doldrums.

    Once again, it's a gloomy, overcast, cold, and rainy day here, so I'm attempting to convince myself it's spring in Serge Lutens'...

    Sympathies to Ines.
    I can still smell the Loulou I put on early
    this morning. This Cacharel scent lasts and then some!
    I do like it when I'm in the mood for something
    sweet and powdery.

    Firstly, thanks so much for the lovely warm welcomes I received yesterday! I know I'm really going to enjoy it here.

    I'm floating on a cloud of Joy perfume, from the little black bottle & red cap. Pure heaven!



    Sending lots of hugs to those in need, especially in sad times.

    I'm roasting on my road trip stop at my dad's home under the scorching sun of Phoenix AZ - so the few drops in an old bottle of Tommy Girl I found in my 'guest bedroom" must suffice. Fresh and uplifting, at least.
    Everyone have a wonderful smelling day....and welcome to whitelace

    Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien edt from the butterfly splash bottle. This is the older bottle & it smells wonderful! Lemon, grapefruit, citron & cypress...very refreshing!

    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.

    Wore Silences for a day of orthopedists and Xrays..what I thought was an icky sprain turned out to be a fracture. The bright side is NO cast, NO crutches and just a bugly immobilizer "boot". I even get to slip into sneakers and drive if necessary. This could have been much worse.

    Will wear Douce Amere later.

    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.

    Sending hugs to all (especially Ines and Tao!)
    Currently wearing: Cuir by Lancôme

    A hug for Ines and all my friends here who know loss from suicide.

    Hello to Whitelace, our neighbor to the north.

    Dropped $500 (sheesh!) at the vet today getting the dog's teeth cleaned and one pulled. DH & I have stopped going to the dentist, but we're still forking out the bucks for our baby.

    Wore a touch of Mitsouko.

    Joining in with hugs for all in need, and an extra big hug for inees.

    Welcome to BN, whitelace.

    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.

    Caron Alpona. I've been meaning to try this forever, and I'm finding it really startling. My metaphor so far is "a cat bathed in orange marmalade soap". And that's a good thing.
