    Today, inspired by Walker Minton's excellent article, I think I will sport Ayala Moriel's Rainforest.
    Thanks to my friend odysseusm for recommending I order a sample set.

    Good morning everyone Probably a weird thing to say,but finally it's monday! Had a rather exhausting weekend with work( up5.30) and hardly any time to fix the apartment because the landlord gave us so short notice.He is selling the house so a realestate guy was suppose to come this morning. He then gave us cardboradboxes and told us to store things in it... I was quite angry yesterday,but now it turns out he's not coming before the 18th.Sotd is Miss Dior. Kewart: enjoy your holiday!

    It is Shalimar Day and so one must go with the flow.

    I always have a hard time wearing this because this was one of two fragrances that my mother wore. It is gorgeous but I get a wicked Oedipal complex when I have it on.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm back from my warm and relaxing vacation! It's good to be back I suppose, and great to see the kitties (and catch up on the goings-on around basenotes, of course!) but I can't say I'm thrilled with how cold it is here. I'm taking advantage of it however, and wearing an old favorite that I thought I'd never see again...but there it was, a pristine box on a shelf in a dusty old liquor store in Sint Maarten! I'm in the rich and opulent, warm and furry Mystère de Rochas.





    Y'all have a great day!

    Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolute by Atelier Perfumes (from a sample)



    A very generous SA (I think he was flirting with me) at Neiman Marcus yesterday gave me a sample of this one, and WOW it's a winner. Too expensive but oh my...this orange lover has hit the jackpot. Summer is here and little puffs of orange zest are swirling all around me.

    As for the Dior Homme, I get more longevity and sillage outta the EdT,
    and it is at the same time more sweet and lipstick'ish, than the cologne.

    Is it Monday already? Don't know why Saturday & Sunday whiz by so much faster than Monday & Tuesday.

    Good morning to all. I'm in Chanel Cristalle from a sample.

    Unfortunately this isn't going to work for me. I almost couldn't get through the initial lemon/aldehyde blast. Thankfully it settled down quickly, but it's just not my cup of tea. I may try it in the future when/if my 'nose' develops more. For now, though, my curiosity has been satisfied.

    My SotE is the last drop of a decant of vintage Tabu. I am tired and I find it comforting this evening. I will have to ferret some out on ebay one day, just to have on hand.

    A round of well wishes for everyone feeling a little other than wonderful today...

    We had big storms move through ahead of a dry line, actually watched some funnel clouds forming (from a storm that was moving away from here, it was amazing, turbulent wild clouds and crazy wind.) No damage in my area but many got hit by some REALLY fast-moving tornadic storms.
    Rope form tornado north and west of here... yikers!

    So, with the wild weather in mind, I think something dangerous and a little wild for the SoTE... hmm... liberally-applied Bandit with a Bvlgari Black back!

    Twolf, I'm hereby inducting you into the slowing growing La Mome Official Fan Club. Sorry about the mammy-gram. You know how to practice for the test don't you? Just slam the mamms one at a time in your freezer door Yuck Yuck. I read that in an office e-mail a few years ago. the trouble was there was a woman working there who had never had a mammogram and she thought it was a serious post. Scared her off preventative medicine for sure.
