    Wednesday is Cabotine Rose by Gres for me, which suits the hot weather in Phoenix very well. I had forgot I stashed an unopened box of it in my "things I leave here" drawer during my last visit.
    Have a fragrant day all!

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    I'm heading for bed now, but thought I would post before retiring in case I cannot get onto the site when I wake up. I'm in an Ava Luxe mood at the moment, so I plan to wear Viva. Good morning or sweet dreams, whichever applies -- and take care, all!

    Keiko Mecheri Day 4 - Oliban

    Notes: atlas cedar wood, olibanum, palisander, blonde tobacco, damascena rose, honey, ambergris, tonka bean

    Clean and soft focused. It starts brightly, citrus and cloves, then softens into the woods and powdery rose. The frankincense seems to dance in and out, twirling with the other notes. It has the sort of unisex elegance that would make it scrummy on a man, whilst also reminding me of Hitchcock heroines.
    Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.

    Joining Taolady in lilies of the valley today, with a bottle of Muguet des Bois from the 90s, before they added the swampy notes to it. My own lilies of the valley should be opening any day....

    Mr. G., that leather bottle is superb!

    Soirdelune, I wore Rumeur yesterday for substitute teaching (3rd graders - oy!). I love Rumeur, it's light but long lasting. Someone said it smells like Narcisso Rodriguez for Her, and I didn't get that at first but now I do. It's just not as cloying and dense.

    Ineespenes, I missed posting yesterday - sending you a ((hug)) sweet girl. ♥

    I’m wearing Cabaret by Grès today. I love it. A reviewer said it reminded her of the old rose glycerin soap from Crabtree & Evelyn, and I agree – it smells very much like that, a clean, crisp & light rose. This is becoming a comfort scent for me, I suppose just because of personal associations with rose fragrances like this. I find them soothing.

    Lately, I reel from the super sweet and syrupy to the dry and crisp. I haven’t yet found a perfect balance between the two, so I alternate.

    Hope all goes well for everybody today, and (whispering) get well soon wishes for Sofie.

    Well, my bottle of Muguet des Bois must be getting old, as the scent was nearly gone by the time I got back from taking DD to school.

    I checked the back yard and my lilies of the valley are indeed opening, so I picked one to whiff and compare with MdB and Diorissimo.

    This led to a little scent-comparing. The result: I layered Diorissimo over a fresh spritz of Muguet des Bois, and the result was more like the real scent of LOTV than either of the perfumes by themselves.

    Afternoon all,

    weird weather day in my part of Sweden today, it seems like spring really wants to be here but is hesitating. Sunny and warm one minute, then chilly winds and clouds the next.

    I could still smell my Angel Celestial Body Cream when I woke this morning, so I layered it with Eau de Star. I really didn't like this when I first tried it, I thought the watermelon note was metallic and synthetic. The only way I can wear it is very, very moderately applied; one spritz between the twins is enough. That way it stays really nice, and I don't get the feeling of artificially coloured melon sweets.

    RHM, I'm sorry about Sofie's migraine. I hope she's feeling better soon. xo

    Chanel No 22. I never fail to be bowled over by the beauty of this one.

    Take care, all!

    Beautiful sunny spring day here in Somerville and I wanted to wear something bright fragrance-wise.

    Jo Malone White Tie & Tiara

    This is one of those fragrances I'm liking more every time I wear it and I liked it fine the first time I wore it.

    Have a Worthy Wednesday everyone.

    Guerlain - Apres L'Ondee
    The infamous fragrance of violets in the rain.
    Melancholy and joy at once, as when the sun peeks through a rain cloud.
    Heartache is painful, but the memories of love are sweet.

    Notes: heliotrope, vanilla, iris roots, anise, violets, and carnations
