    Good morning, all! It's overcast here, but I'm wrapped in a warm cloud of Narciso Rodriguez for Her (Black), from a Nordstrom sample. On my first try, I'm finding this powerfully rich and musky. There are fruity and floral notes there if I sniff for them, but the overall impression isn't floral, just a sort of cloud of rich perfumey musk. Like a very stylized representation of clean warm fur

    Habit Rouge (vintage Eau de Toilette) by Guerlain



    This is last drops of my decant. I guess I need a bottle now. I always thought the EdC was more my speed, but now I am starting to see the brilliance of the vintage EdT, in certain situations. I definitely smell a more prominent incense note in the EdT (the one that's amped up in the EdP that everyone raves about). The only drawback, is if I venture outdoors, it can get a bit sticky if I sweat too much. But here indoors, at my office desk, I smell fantastic.

    Hello dear BNers! You smell fabulous today.

    NLS, I love the picture you posted with your SOTD - you remind me that I should not neglect my bottle of Norell. I should set it out for tomorrow.

    Today, though...I went with

    Chanel No. 19 (parfum, modern formulation)

    Yesterday, I had some unfortunate scent choices. I had some weird chemistry with Bandit (which I normally love)....then late at night, I tried my sample of Vanillaville (which I thought I would love based on the notes, but it made me a little queasy). I ended up washing it off and dousing myself in Rochas Femme for bedtime (aaaaahhhhh). But then I had a weird dream (don't ask). So today, I had to go with something that never fails me and always smells lovely...

    Hugs to all!

    I'm in my SO's Diptyque Eau des Hesperides. I don't care for it. It has a bitter herb note (on me) that is not at all agreeable. Humph.

    Lyndy Hop ~ I love your use of Smileys! It's raining right now, and I feel like we could never get too much rain or thunderstorms. You're so lucky to be in the Pacific NW.

    Rare shopping day for me with stupendous luck with tops at Catherine's (plus size). Popped into Ulta and unfortunately sprayed myself with two disagreeable scents: Samsara (I know, I know, I know — everybody else likes it but me) and Ferragamo Incanto Bloom — chemicals, blech. Oh well, tomorrow's another fragrance day.

    Tee-hee. Yes, Twolf — supercalifragi-kappa-calycanthi-licious.

    Fracas



    My equally gorgeous friend Duc, last summer the drydown of Ysatis had that sweet vanilla almond thing that HP has. Seriously. It only did that once, but I can't get it out of my head. As for my six-year-old niece.... my sis is being a little punk right now, so I thought if I passed down this luscious little sillage bomb and it was accidentally overapplied/dumped all over something absorbent I would get an evil little thrill thinking of her attempting to clean it up. As it is, I think I'll be nice and keep it because I know I would regret using such a lovely thing for evil and when I'd want to wear it again, I'd have a moment of wistful, "Oh yeah. That's what I did with it."
    You smell good, by the way.

    And I'm saying good night in 1 spritz each of Oudh Noir, CB Patchouli Empire, and Coromandel (so I could describe the differences in the patch in each of 'em on another thread.)

    Musse, just curious- does your Dali scent really have "sweat amber" in the basenotes, or was that a typo?

    Quarry, I love my Guerlain's but Samsara is not my fave, either. "un air de samsara" is really interesting, tho with a mint twist in there.

    Another 11 hour workday- glad it's a short week. MY SOTD was Guerlain Cologne Du 68 (again). I really am enjoying this!
