    Today I am again in one of mumsy's creations, which she has tentatively named Synergie V.1. Lovely work-in-progress.

    Today I'm wearing vintage Femme extrait -- a '60s bottle -- snaffled off the 'bay.

    I am super-thrilled with this; it's so elegantly soft and leathery. Quite a different beast to the current iteration (which I love and would defend to the grave). This stays oh-so-close to the skin, and is very gently voluptuous. I'd say Daim Blond is a pretty close comparison. Charming!

    Sophi ~ Nice to see a pretty ocean scene. All we in the States have been seeing of beaches lately is news coverage of the ghastly oil spill. The only thing good that can come of it is if we can learn to make wiser choices in the future.

    Congrats to Soirdelune on the vintage purchase. Synergy, you composed the nicest sentiments about your gracious attitude. Further evidence BN is populated by the nicest people.

    Scented a birthday card for my cousin with Mitsouko this morning, so that's what I ended up wearing.

    Good morning, y'all!
    I am wearing Fendi Asja today. It reminds me of J'ai Ose by Guy Laroche, my Mom's favorite perfume. She wore it on special occasions and I was not allowed to even touch the bottle. (I wish I could, I'd remember the smell better then) When it got discontinued, Mom wasn't able to find a replacement for it ever, and I think she pretty much remained perfume-less since then. Fendi Asja makes me think of finding something to replace J'ai Ose for Mom, but sadly, Asja seems to be discontinued as well!

    Vanille Tonka. I put it on last night before bedtime and I can still smell it today. I am getting a real sense of morel, but it is not unpleasant on me the way it is in Vanille Intense.

    Hello everyone!

    Thanks to a dear and generous basenoter I'm enjoying the very beautiful, spicy, rosey and lush peony of Ava Luxe's Peonies....so naturally I should bust a fancy curtsey for the Queen of Peony, Lady Tao, whose elegant words comprise the only review in the database. This is such a nice one, and a bit different from most peonies as it has a somewhat vintage feel to it....so plush and so rosey, and so sadly extinct.

    Y'all have a wonderful day!

    Morning all - so I found my package from Sephora late last night hidden behind a pillar outside ! In it was my lovely lovely addictive Hesperides by Fresh ( ... Lilybelle !!! ) It arrived sooner than I thought - when I tracked it, UPS said it was delivered - naughty for them not to ring the door bell but mark it 'Left With Woman'....... meaning me I guess.

    So this morning ,it's Fresh Hesperides . I love this , the shower gel and soap are amazing too .

    Synergy - A Perfume Fair? Oh how fantastic that must have been. Congrats on your score!

    Rickbr - You smell wonderful in your Dior (and I love the photo of Jude - he could make me buy anything!)

    Thanks to Quarry and 30 Roses for your "wave" yesterday! It's good to be back.

    Today, on another cool, beautiful day, I'm lightly scented in 31, rue Cambon with a little dash of Cuir de Russie on my left wrist (couldn't decide between the two this morning). They work very well together.... all that gorgeous Chanel iris and leather!

    Hope everyone is having a great Wed!

    base of patchouli, leather, oakmoss, amber, and musk.

    Evening all,

    I've been on a training day with work today, and when you work as a pre school teacher it's not an ordinary day with lectures in a boring class room. We visited a garden called "The Senses Garden" (freely translated here, bare with me), where we got to smell, touch, listen, see and taste everything. Also, we had exercises in how to teach maths - outdoors. For this I had to wear something green, so Molinard de Molinard it is.

    Hi, pomander! Great to see you!
    trikkirikki, loooove that green Molinard de Molinard - still need to get myself another bottle. One of these days...

    I'm in green today, too. The utter perfection of Parfums de Nicolai Le Temps D'Une Fete, which has rapidly skyrocketed to one my top favorite fragrances of all time (so far, that is), almost even knocking Cristalle edt off the very top. Gasp!
    Notes (fom luckyscent): galbanum, mastic, opoponax, narcissus, hyacinth, daffodil, styrax, oakmoss, sandalwood.

    I wanted to be like rickbr (Dior week), but the stopper on my mini of Poison was STUCK this morning (and I was already late!). Call me the Queen of Lame...

    So I went with one that always works on days like today...

    Prada Infusion d'Iris

    Beautiful incense-y iris. Maybe I'll try Dior all week next week (start fresh! plus, it'll give me time to figure out how to open up that stupid mini).

    Started the day in CDG x Stephen Jones, then topped it up, seeing as I was in Boots, with a spritz of Dior Fahrenheit Absolute. Now revelling in my uberbutchcampyness! I call this layering experiment Handlebar Moustache Violet!

    Hi all!

    I spent the morning in Provence Santé Tilleul/Linden. This afternoon I visited a consignment shop where I spotted a 100 ml. bottle of Ambre Narguilé. The SA allowed me a spritz. It has a top note that is discordant, though it settles down nicely after half an hour. All in all I prefer Ambre Soie.

    I took a couple more photos of roses just opened: "Fragrant Plum" and "Full Sail." Will update my albums in a little while.

    No. 19 (vintage parfum) by Chanel (from a sample)



    Splendid stuff. Although I think the vintage EdP gives this a run for its money.

    I will be almost a recluse, locked up at home for several days to do a lot of grading, so I can experiment with fragrances!
    Today it was Asja by Fendi on one arm and Guerlain L'Instant on the other.
    I had fun comparing them, they are both honeyed orientals (L'Instant listed as a floriental and Asja as oriental), and while Asja puts forth a soft cloud of decidedly natural aromas, L'Instant has a pointed hard edge, and yes, I can see how one may be finding it synthetic. Do I like it regardless? Oh yes! I am also excited because I was able to smell both jasmine and magnolia in it. It impressed me more than Asja, but I might just try it by itself to enjoy it with no comparisons/distractions.

    Today I'm in most of what's left of my Citizen Queen by JHAG sample... and yes, it is a good scent with longevity... and nobody looked at me like I stank at the office today so... and nods to BayKAT.

    Edit: And now I'm trying to find something to layer with the modern Poison EDT, to re-oomph the scent... So far, only watering eyes with the first experiment (wildly aimed)... Miyake. Don't think it works so much.

    This afternoon, now I've worked my butt off at the gym , I put on some Joy parfum extrait - not vintage but the more pedestrian Proctor and Gamble version . You know what ? It's fabulous- it IS indeed Joy parfum .I am really happy to say P & G have done a fantastic job with keeping Joy as Joy.
    Once a Joy girl ,always a Joy girl .
    I love you, Joy ,I'll love you forever and ever..........

    Warum, I used to own them both -- in different times in my life -- Jai Ose and Asja -- and loved them both. Jai Ose has (sadly!) been reformulated when Guy Laroche's name disappeared from the packaging -- but it used to be very nice with resins and amber. Fendi Asja -- cherry top finally got to me and I sent it to another BNer. I do not find them very similar altogether. And sorry, I am not stalking you, today or answering your Birthday question. In fact, I like you and pay attention to what you are saying. I probably need to send you something to prove it. Warum nicht?

    I am in older Yves Rocher Cantata -- thanks to a fabulous BN friend -- it is a very smooth scent with boozey fruit and ice-creamed sandalwood, very Italian in mood.

    Congratulations to actiasluna and Mimi for joining the boys and blogging together.

    Twolf, sweetheart, I like you too and I didn't think you were stalking me at all! Neither today nor yesterday. In fact, I appreciated "corny answers" -- they're exactly what I was looking for when I asked my "corny question!" I didn't thank you for them then, so I do now!

    I will trust your experience on J'ai Ose and Asja without questioning my own memory, and here's why I can do both: sounds like you were conscious when you used both scents. As for me, I was not allowed to touch Mom's bottle, so all I have is a memory of how I slept hugging her clothing when I was a little kid. Not much more than that, so it can possibly be very inaccurate. The fact that Asja reminds me of that is lovely for me, so I am a happy mother's child today, if you know what I mean.

    But if I want to look for something to replace J'ai Ose for my now-perfumeless Mom -- then of course I welcome your opinion because I think it has more chances to be close to my Mama's! so I appreciate your take on it very much!

    Back into Yohji Yamamoto Homme tonight. Controversial frag here on Basenotes but I like it just fine.
