    Chanel - Cuir de Russie

    This is the parfum which has far
    fewer aldehydes than the EDT.
    There is an initial profusion of florals
    and leather and in the end, a buttery
    iris and amber combination.

    Notes include; orange blossom, bergamot,
    mandarin, clary sage; iris, jasmine,
    rose, ylang-ylang, cedarwood, vetiver,
    styrax, leather, amber, vanilla.

    No holiday here, but I did have the morning off. We had no early cases this morning, so my manager asked me to come in late today. I'm wearing Success Is A Job In NY today.

    Have a good day, everyone!

    Top notes: Bergamot, Bitter Orange, Honeysuckle, Italian Neroli
    Middle notes: Egyptian Rose Geranium, Gardenia, Grandiflorum Jasmine, Mimosa, Orris, Tuberose Absolute
    Base notes: Amber, Ambergris, Galbanum, Musk.

    Enjoy the day!

    Good morning! Today I'm enjoying Citizen Queen, floral leather, yum.

    This morning I was sitting on the bench in my front yard, drinking my coffee, enjoying the wafts of Citizen Queen, and reading basenotes on the iphone (while waiting for my dog, who was also enjoying some sniffing) when the fed ex truck pulled up and a very handsome young man with a beautiful smile handed me a little box from Luckyscent. Life is good...

    Enjoy your holiday, to those who have one!
    Good luck with your assignment, ineespenes!
    I'm sure that Sabi will help you cope, Quarry. (clients not PAYING? Shame on them!)

    Today I'm Novis' scent twin in Le Temps D'Une Fete. I think I overapplied -- it was a bit airless and haylofty -- but it's dissipated a bit and now it's so lovely, full of golden spring sunlight.

    I don't quite get that statement, is it like barbarian?!

    Smells more like a little sophisticated, cigaret smoking

    I just assumed that "barbare" in that perfume ad meant something like "barbaric" in French! Uncivilized, wild, unbridled, something like that. It doesn't sound like the scent fits my guess, though. I suppose a sophisticated French femme could be barbare in her own way, though.

    Today I am wearing my beloved Coromandel. I love all of all the fragrances in my wardrobe, but Coromandel is the only one that I can NOT live without.

    Mysticknot, I love your new "status"? "signature"? whatever you call it, it's one of my favorite arias

    I'm wearing Estee Lauder Exotic Pleasures. I've been unimpressed with the entire Pleasures line so far, but Exotic is the one I can wear without much ill effects... without much adoration either. Sounds unclear why I still have my mini -- I guess to figure out what fails to impress me?..

    My goodness, this is a classy smelling group! My SotE is Estee Lauder Pure White Linen. I can't stay away from this fragrance for long.

    Warum, I like Pleasures Exotic, too. It's my favorite of the Pleasures line. I enjoy the mango note, and there is something in there that also makes me think of Bronze Goddess, some woody note maybe.

    Ah, Quarry, don't you just ADORE deadbeat clients? (sigh... ) Well... Today I started out in Habit Rouge EDP (the one w/agarwood in it, yes!) and when I got home I had two boxes sitting at my doorstep, one of 'em with a Turbulences vintage parfum splash (I know... I know... my retirement will at least SMELL great even if I live on rice, but it was SO inexpensive, she whines)... and the lovely Xerjoff Casamorati 1888 Fiore d'Ulivo I WON (happy dance) in cairomerta's drawing. So...after deadheading some roses, and vowing to hold off on the Fiore d'Ulivo until tomorrow, I'm wearing Turbulences this afternoon. Might test Xerjoff Shooting Stars Modoc later tonight after I finish my own freelance graphics work...

    Thanks Warum ... it's one of my fave arias too - from Puccini's La Boheme ! Plus my nickname is Mimi .

    This evening , I am enjoying my sample of Black Gardenia by Michelle Bergman. I don't need my 'gardenia' to be super realistic all the time I guess. I love the drama of this .Now I can pretend that there really are black gardenias somewhere in the world ! *LOL*

    Sophi... thumbs up !

    Hi! The weened is almost here.

    Happy belated birthday to RainDropSparkle!!

    I have not been on the forum since Monday and I need to catch up with the SOTD since then. Working late again. Today I wore Douce Amere. I almost panicked when I saw there is less than 1/3 of the bottle left, but then I remembered I bought a back up, whew. Yesterday I wore the new Guerlain Cologne the Parfumier and the day before Angelique Noire from samples. I liked the first blast of Angelique Noire, but the drydown was meh, or perhaps I was too busy to notice it.

    Thank you dear arwen_elf! Actually, it was my daughter's birthday (she's 6)...we had a really nice night and am looking forward to the weekend (when we have the little party for her friends)...

    Bandit has amazing staying power. I have been enjoying it all day (12+ hours!). I'm heading off to shower now, but perhaps I'll relax in a big cloud of Bal a Versailles afterwards...
