    Love In Black today, inspired by Haunani's violetfest yesterday. It's too cold here for the Stephen Jones sample! I'm on fledgling watch today, keeping the neighbourhood cats out of the garden and away from the baby robin that's sat in the long grass. Mr and Mrs Robin yell, and I run out with my broom like a mad lady!
    Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.

    Chanel Beige...almost went for the Eau Premier but I haven't worn Beige in a while, so I thought I'd give it some lovin.

    My sweetheart is home today...well he's actually enroute right now but I pick him up at the airport a little later.

    Storm front moving in this morning & I woke up with a headache. Not unusual but annoying, it's sinus. I've got a lot to do & can't be held back by a mere headache.

    I'm wearing Wild Honeysuckle edt by Bath & Body Works this morning, but I'm going to play with samples today so I'm sure I'll be wearing any number of things in combination.

    RHM, I have a sinus headache this morning, too. I sympathize!

    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..."

    Orange Blossom Cologne by Jo Malone (from a sample)



    I love the top notes, they remind me a bit of that new Aqua Allegoria Flora Nymphea...all green leaves and orange blossoms. But I think today I figured out why I am not falling in love with this one, it's the water lily note in the dry down. I really have an aversion to that note. I remember a water lily candle that I had in my house, that when it was lit it made my stomach turn. Blech. So, I think I might have to stop trying to like this one, and move on.

    The scent is inspired by Olivier Creed's travels on the high seas, "an element of nature that connects all humanity." and according to Creed, the bottle evokes "the shoulders of a feminine figure as she rests upon white sands caressed by the ocean's gentle current. A silver ribbon at the neck conveys sunshine dancing on the Aegean sea".

    I reapplied Poeme from a RIS bottle last night to be sure I like it fine, and I woke up still smelling it on that arm!
    I guess that will have to count for a third day for my 3 days in a row full bottle challenge because I would want to wear lilacs today in memory of a family member.

    John Singer Sargent, 1911

    Madame Rochas

    The scent of golden sunshine on white linen,
    broom and orange blossom are
    anchored by sensuous woods and vetiver.
    Birds sing, bees buzz along;
    I am drifting away from this story...

    Based on the original but with a slightly more intense
    formula by Jean-Louis Sieuzac and Jacques Fraysse.
    A soft yet rich floral-aldehyde parfum with;
    Top notes of orange blossom, broom, honeysuckle and neroli.
    Heart notes of ylang-ylang, tuberose, jasmine, orris and Bulgarian rose.
    Base notes of sandalwood, cedar, vetiver, musk and amber.

    Excellent quote today! I recall buying ET Gardenia for a friend who loved the flower, it's lovely on her. A gentle sort of non-overwhelming gardenia.

    Im in Guerlain's discontinued darling, AA Winter Delice. Yup, WINTER, even though it's spring. Weeeell, you see, I just bought the full-size bottle from the adorable Mr. G and I had to wear it, didn't I? It's very very good. On me the incense comes zooming out and then I get an amazingly long-lasting woody musky base that I'll still be able to smell tomorrow morning. Love it! Now for the tricky bit: not wearing it so much I wear out my affection for it. I've done this with several perfumes in the past, so I'm going to ration myself to wearing this only once a week. (Yup, how daft am I?)

    Have a lovely weekend. xxx

    Petra Ichor, thanks for the reminder that I need to try Love in Black, and best wishes to you and Baby Robin. It's mid-morning here, and last night's Stephen Jones still scents my skin. Outstanding longevity! For now I'm re-applying. This may have to go on my FB wish list!

    Edit: Stephen Jones is considered aldehydic, but I like it. Still trying to figure that out!
