    Today I am wearing Délices de Cartier Eau de Parfum, a 10ml gift from Nordstroms. It's very different from any thing I own, fruity and kinda reminds me of Miss Dior Cherie (berries), but I like this better. Délices seems more sophisticated than Miss Dior Cherie. Looking forward to finishing my 10mls and become more familiar with this frag, but not sure I would spend the dough to own a full bottle.

    Have a beautiful day!

    TF Noir de Noir. I've been testing the sample that I received from a TF rep at Neimans. This is some good stuff! I think it may be FB worthy for sure.

    Marc Chagall, 1913

    Lubin - Nuit de Longchamp
    Dusky aldehydes meld with soft florals and gently soothe the soul.
    Is there such a thing as an intellectual perfume?
    This scent seems to open up the mind to new possibilities.
    I feel crisp, sharp and agile as a cat in a window!

    Top notes are nutmeg, Sicilian bergamot,
    Tunisian orange blossom and cardamom;
    middle notes are iris, jasmine, Turkish rose and ylang-ylang;
    base notes are labdanum, tolu balsam, Peru balsam, sandalwood,
    patchouli, laburnum, Tahitian vetiver and oak moss.

    Ce Soir Ou Jamais! It's unusual for me to wear this in warm weather; for me this is more of a fall/winter scent, but it called out to me this morning.

    Sissi by Marc de la Morandiere, a beautiful full throttle floral scent. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about it, but then it was cool and rainy. It has blossomed mightily during the warmth of the day!

    Today I'm wearing Costes from a small travel bottle I own. It reminds me a little of 10 Corso Como. I'll have to compare the notes!

    Another day I will spend glued to my laptop. I ran to it first thing in the morning, expecting students to have tech issues and needing me to reset their tests. Yep, there was some of that, but thankfully not as much as I thought it would be! So, TMI, I know, no shower for me yet, so I cautiously dabbed some samples to try on before I shower. Honey and the Moon by Tokyo Milk, I thought, would be a real winner, since I love everything honey, but no, it smells more like a raspberry jam tart on me. Not what I bargained for as they say
    On my other arm is Victoria Secret Very Sexy Now the Beauty of Brazil. I do not like coconut laden "tropical" perfumes, at least I haven't met one I liked yet.

    I am not the journey to test some complex scents, and the ones I am wearing right now cannot be described as complex. But I am too bored to work when I don't wear anything! I'll be checking in with some Chanels later.

    Scent of the Day was
    Miss Dior Chérie

    Tonight I'm sampling two of the
    Les Exclusifs de Chanel;
    31 Rue Cambon and N°22.

    31 is fab, very sweet and innocent.
    But N°22 is my new obsession.
    Aldehyde galore ... and a drydown
    to die for, so sweet and delish..!

    Ooh, Le Grand Duc, I love Miss Dior Cherie.

    I hope everyone's having a lovely day. I'm testing Juliette Has A Gun's Lady Vengeance which is a nice rose / patchouli scent. I think Citizen Queen is better, though.

    Oh, I like being called a bright-eyed fragrant BUNNY, Briella!!

    Today I'm in Paco Rabanne METAL.
    Marketing description: "It has notes of greens, woodsy aromas, combined with rose and low notes of metal." I really do smell the metal. It's not a conceptual metal, but an actual -- I do some silversmithing and I can detect in Metal the exact scent of slightly tarnished silver.



    Thalia is making that Datura blanche sound nice, I'll have to revisit my sample.
    And kumquat -- I definitely could find a place for a scent that makes me smarter!!

    I've been absent and have missed a lot of birthdays -- happy belated birthday, to all the birthday girls!

    With all your thoughts on another thread I am craving Dune all of a sudden. We have been having rain all morning long.

    Will have to settle for something else instead -- more Jolie Madame? Love in Black? We'll see.

    Thanks Warum! I think nearly all the Mecheri's I've tried are kittenish in some way. I imagine her meeting with her perfumers, sampling the offerings and going, "This is great, but.... MORE KITTENS!" There may even be a stamping of the Mecheri foot :)

    *calls for dear, funny Duc* -- I managed to unstick the stopper on my Poison mini last night and wore it to dinner and bed. I forgot how absolutely beautiful it is!

    This morning, I had to go for something lighter. The tradewinds stopped (ick!), and it might be a bit harsh to bust out the Poison on a warm, humid day like today.

    SOTD: Hermes Kelly Caleche

    I want to try that Pure Poison or Tendre Poison - possibly wearable on tropical summer days, do you think? Hmmmm...I have a list as long as my arm of things to try!

    Hugs all!

    Pure Poison is very demure and wearable in hot weather, IMO. It reminds me a little of White Linen, but less aggressively CLEAN AND STARCHED.

    OMG -- "More Kittens!" is brilliant. May I use it as a sig? We'll be getting an actual kitten in the next few weeks, so it's very apropos. Mmmmm, new-kitten smell ...

    So I'm in #22! Lovely!

    Petra, "more kittens"! I am laughing, this is fantastic. Now I know whose samples I will be trying next, being such a huge cat person as I am. I cuddle with my cats, you know *blushes, runs away*

    Nice to be scent triplets, Todd and Le Grand Duke! Perhaps, I'll go for Miss Dior Cherie in the next couple of days

    Spent the day in Leonard de Leonard layered with a TINY bit of Vetiver Carven. Last time I wore this, I layered it with Yatagan as an experiment that worked in smoothing out the (new formulation) Yatagan bitterness. I love L de L on its own, but have noticed that certain scents have a sweetness on my skin that goes a little heavy, particularly when the weather is uber-humid as it was today, and the slight bitter greenness of VC tempered that sweetness. (VC doesn't have a great deal of longevity on my skin so it's the perfect Too-Sweet-Topnote-Buffer).

    Projects at work have had me TIRED, but got big kudos today on one that the client described (albeit a bit ... hyperbolically?) as "1000 x better than anything he'd ever seen in a course." (granted, any effort is better than a PowerPoint deck with bullet points, but... I'll take it!) ... so I got a bit of a jump-start from that glowing comment. Clients who rave like that actually scare me a bit, if you know what I mean. The point? On a day I smelled like a rose anyway, my project came in smelling equally rosy! <grins>
