    Wow, I love that Lubin Vetiver bottle!

    Sofi, you have me so excited for the arrival of my own bottle of Dune!

    I'm up to G in my perfume alphabet this morning, so I'm wearing Gucci by Gucci from a sample. I'm kind of surprised at how warm and summery it smells, coming out of that square smoked-glass bottle. Put the J.Lo name on this and stick in a little bottle with sparkly charms instead of the horse brass, and everyone would rave about how it smells like the beach! I guess that's the tiare? But it's also got a nice solid dark base so you don't just smell like tiki drinks with umbrellas in them.

    Kumquat, what a fantastic photo of Carole Lombard! Perfect for TB.

    Wearing Annick Goutal's Heure Exquise today. Very similar to No 19 and definitely FBW.

    Have a good Friday, everyone!

    Hugs to you, *dora*! My best thoughts and wishes to you and your mother.

    I'm wearing Bois des Iles by Chanel. Exquisite! I am reminded mostly of Chanel #22 Les Exclusives which I wore yesterday, but only the basenotes are similar. Of course, I can be wrong. Might want to test side by side.

    Oh, my, Dora. A heartfelt hug from me for you and your mom.

    Q U E S T I O N : What perfume would you say Woolite smells like?
    While cleaning and laundering today, a large, full bottle of Woolite lept from the window sill and exploded behind the washing machine, which, because it was full of water, could not be moved to deal with the spreading goo. Anyway, even after the clean-up, the laundry and bathroom smell like cheap, modern perfume.

    Wore it yesterday, had to "green" it up for the heat... but yes, I love it and get more of a Rose Scent than a "like Chanel 19" which is definitely a green scent on me.

    Oh dear, Dora! ((((HUGS)))) ... your family has had way too many difficulties this year... here's hoping they get better soon!

    And this afternoon, I'm comparing Chanel No. 19 and Leonard de Leonard side by side. I realize that my reasoning behind using a Vetiver Caron layering on the LdL is to make it smell MORE like Chanel No. 19, which has a very green, "peppery" top in comparison to the LdL on my skin, which has a warm, rosy, creamy-sweet top and middle.

    I'm probably going to be "scarce" this weekend as the sweetie pie is coming and I have to catch up on the housecleaning before he arrives... (my Peter Pan lifestyle of doing as I please after work is catching up with me!)

    Sampling Xerjoff Modoc today. Interesting that the scent changes completely several times throughout the day, ending up far from where it started.

    Hello all, I hope everyone is set to enjoy a fabulous week-end.

    (((((Dora))))) much love coming your way.

    Today I wore Silences by Jacomo, what a fabulous scent that moves me. Just to wonderful for words.

    Tonight I am wearing the divine Narcisse Blanc de Caron. I think this scent is so delicious and quite different than Narcisse Noir; most people tend to call NB "Narcisse Noir Light", but I feel it is more deserving of its own compliments. It truly has a delicious white flower bouquet that just sings on my skin.

    Hugs all around.

    Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme for me this morning. I want to like this one, and it's not bad, I just don't think it's Full Bottle Worthy. Not sure why I want to like it so much. I guess since I own and like Light Blue Pour Homme, I think the bottles would look good next to each other. Silly I know, but oh well. Not doing it if I don't like the juice.

    Anyway, after mowing the yard this afternoon, switched up and went with Viktor & Rolf Antidote. Much better. Love this stuff.

    A little late posting today.
    Hugs to Dora and her mom.

    I received an unexpected e-mail from a friend who loves the new Guerlain Cologne de Parfumeur. Since I was happy to hear from her, I wore the new Guerlain Cologne. It is very refreshing. When I came back from lunch I received a couple of perfumes in the mail: a mini of Chaos and a sample of Olivia Giacobetti's NY Vamp from the Honore de Pres line. Mimi would love that one.

    Hey Arwen....I am sure I would. The new Cologne de Parfumeur sounds great too!
    Please someone tell me if Sous Le Vent is now permanent or is it still limited edition. I HATE falling for limited editions. I bought a small decant to tide me over till I can get a bottle.
