    I like Apercu, too, C Rose -- it is nice and light, I agree!

    Wearing Givenchy III today. Take care, all.

    Today, I am enjoying a special fragrance thanks to a generous friend-in-fragrance. Thanks, Primrose!
    It is L'Occitane Labdanum de Séville, a very lovely mid-weight amber that is perfect for our coolish spring day. I'm really going to enjoy this!



    Listed notes are Citrus Fruits, Spices, Labdanum, Benzoin, and Vanilla

    It's still overcast and gray here, but it stopped raining and is beginning to brighten up.

    I wore Grès Caberet his morning. This afternoon it's Opium Poésie de Chine.

    It sure looks and smells wonderful in here.

    Have taken a half day off due to a headache that WON't QUIT... (bug at work I suppose)... anyway, I started my day in the lithe, light and lovely sunshine and Mediterranean air of Fiore d'Ulivo and now, for the comfort factor, am snuggled up with Montale Black Aoud.

    And to kumquat's images and verbiage: WHO in this group would not be tempted beyond any caution to buy a scent that featured such a lushly descriptive and lovely ad?

    You all are making me blush, again! This Hermes Is really one of the finest & it lasts all day on me. I wore it to my exercise class & it is still reminding me of the springtime outside. CRose, hmmm...Apercu, that gives me an idea for a future post. I really like that one, too. i find it very underrated.

    Leesee -- you're wearing another one of my I-gotta-try-it-maybe-blind-it-chypres today! (If I could just figure out which style box is old and which new...)
    Kumquat -- I look forward to your Apercu post! (& meanwhile I challenge anyone who loves chypres NOT to buy Apercu after reading Hillaire's "salado" review of it!)

    Kumquat, thanks for posting the Normandie photo. It's sad to think it's now defunct. Your SOTD picture is so gorgeous. Thanks for posting. Hey, you've introduced me to some great favorites, too. Glad to return the favor!

    Apercu lovers, unite!! It really is an underknown and underappreciated chypre. Is it still in production?

    I tried Velvet Gardenia today.
    In the beginning I was not impressed but, out of the shopping centre,
    in the cool spring air I found Ι really liked it.
    (A good thing is that I can buy it, if I decide it, as I have a bonus for 130 euros in the shop that sells it!)

    I'm covered in Dawn Spencer Hurwitz fragrances, having just received a box in the mail. Her "Specials" page is wonderful, lots of goodies there. I'm enjoying the Route d'Iris very much, along with Umber: Bois de Rose and Essenza dell'lbisco.

    Route d'Iris is a fresh "rooty" iris/mimosa/violet/neroli (there's lots more, of course) blend that smells exactly like my Butterfly Garden, which is in full iris bloom right now.

    Scent twins today with actiasluna in wearing Montale Black Aoud.
    It's truly comforting on this cold and rainy day.

    Hope everyone has a lovely evening and that your headache dissipates soon, actiasluna, if it hasn't already!

    Today (and yesterday night) I'm feeling resplendent in vintage My Sin parfum thanks to the lovely and generous lilybelle.



    And oh my goodness, what a remarkably gorgeous fragrance! I just may become a vintage devotee, after all....

    Scent of the day, which is also lingering well into the evening, is Christian Lacroix Absynthe.

    For what it's worth, C Rose, I have the more recent version of Givenchy III, and I adore it. (Still, I imagine the vintage is even better, of course.)

    Actiasluna, feel better soon!

    A lot of lovely smelling folks around here today! Count me in -- another fan of Apercu and the house of Houbigant in general. I think it is still in production but the house got split up and bought up by different companies so many of their scents are not the way they used to be.

    SotE -- How could it possibly be not L'Or by Rose Torrente-Mett? (I have another bottle on my way as well as My Torrente -- this last one is fresia and hazelnut, for the lazy summer evenings if nothing else). Once again, I can't stress enough the importance of testing, please PM me if you have not tested L'Or yet.

    For this evening I'm sampling Etro's Relent. Baby powder lavender turning into babypowder amber. Nice and uncomplicated, but not of enough interest for me I think. This would make a nice bedtime scent maybe.
