    Good morning, all!

    Sophi, I love the pictures you use - yesterday's for Dune was amazing!

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

    Have a great Wednesday everybody!

    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!

    Them's the breaks - I'm sure I've unknowingly bid against BN-ers, too. Probably a good thing, or we'd outpolite each other and never nab anything. (lol)

    Besides, I am SPOILT. I went to a perfume fair here in the Netherlands on Sunday and I found, among other things... a sealed, vintage bottle of S by Schiaparelli. No complaining, here!

    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.

    Today I am trying out YSL Elle on the left arm and Tous on the right. I like the Elle. Not too hip to the Tous, though.

    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!
