    KISKISSKISS right back atya Sophi!! What a pretty little heart!!

    Returning to my Keiko Mecheri coffrets today I'm test driving Genie des Bois. "Violet leaves, violet, tonka bean, benzoin tears (sic!!) rosewood."

    As often happens, the pyramid arrives haphazardly - sometimes upside down - on me. So what I get first is woodiness then overly sweet, musky violet with nothing to temper the sweetness. So far. (Half hour in.) I'm not a violet fan....too "old lady" (I await the brickbats - but show respect! I am eighty one.).... so this may be a pass-along to those who are (not eighty one - violet fans).

    Still - worth the booklet copy: "A glimpse to Romanticism. An unexpected violets bouquet rejuvenated by misty green notes and comforted deliciously by tonka beans and cocoa powder notes." (But no benzoin tears?)

    We have another birthday today -- it is Red Hot Mama's! (She, like me, used to be having her full name displayed while posting, but in one of our BN changeovers we had to stick with the abbreviated forms). Was quite a trying year for you, not boring at all -- hubby, daughter, flowers, cat, fire, surgery, bees -- too jam-packed for average folks, not your typical Gemini. But you have been on top of this all and came out smelling like a rose, didncha? Anyhooo, many fragrant returns of the day!

    Shiloh for me today.

    Got out weeding and sweating early. Showered and now enjoying the cooling effects of Bigarade Concentree. Relatives visit this afternoon, a touch more dusting, and I'm ready for the white-glove test.

    Thank you for your sweet wishes, I love the pretty pictures! It HAS been some year for me and my family but we aren't alone in this.

    I count my blessings. You all are among them.

    As for scent today, I have been drawn lately to Chanel fragrances. (Wore #5 edt & body cream for bed last night) It's supposed to be a hot, humid day with thunderstorms. Chanel #19, sounds like just the scent to wear to cool off.

    Again, thank you for the birthday wishes. I'm spending the day treating the chestnut wood mantle & doors in my house. I think I have woodworm in the mantle. Reminds me of the "Bucket woman"!

    Hugs & smooches to all of you.

    Raphaelle Peale, 1822

    Puro Lino
    Deceptively simple, lingering clean scent of soap.
    It must be the geranium that gives this a sense of wonderment.
    Tangy and gentle at the same time.
    All the while, verbena and jasmine tantalize in soothing caresses.

    The notes feature geranium, jasmine, verbena,
    neroli, green notes and musk.

    Honoré des Prés Vamp à NY, from a sample I won on another site's giveaway.

    It's gorgeous. I sprayed the back of my hand last night, and in the morning it seemed a bit powdery. I am not extremely familiar with tuberose as a note to give a comparison. So far, though, I am loving it.

    Today I am doing a full wearing and will pay more attention to its development.

    Happy Birthday,
    RHM!


    My SoTD is Guerlain Vetiver
    The latest formulation... a touch more citrusy and sharp than the original, with a little smooch of nutmeg that isn't there in the original's top note, which gives it a "musty" character for a little while that the original doesn't have, which knocks it a notch below the original for me.

    Now back to the chores, I've got a goal to have my house all tidy and my stacks of paper that are reaching their maximum angle of repose sorted by the end of the day!

    Creed Love In Black, for a day spent battling the garden. Managed to get most of the bindweed out without disturbing my own little wild violets too much.

    Happy Birthday RHM! Now I know what the initials stand for

    Happy Birthday, RHM!
    I didn't know what your nickname meant, and now I know thanks to Twolf. What's your full name?

    I am obsessing over my sample of Bond #9 New Haarlem. I've been testing it against my other coffee scents and so far it is my very favorite.

    Le Grand Duke, I apologized for not wearing Dior in honor of your Birthday yesterday, but after an eventful afternoon I took a shower before coming over to friends to play my brand new black Ovation (a guitar for those who don't recognize the name) -- sooo excited -- and thought, Gosh, I am making a STATEMENT anyway, so Poison it was! But, I was wearing overalls. The only reason I was able to pull that off was that slick black guitar

    Hahaha, I laughed at your post from yesterday,
    nice to hear, that you ended your day in the fab
    Poison, and the Esprit de Parfum at that!

    Yep, it's the same bottle that I had in the 1990s. Seems like I've actually been using it back then, I can't believe how much is left. It's really special to me because it was my first "real grown up" French perfume, so I do treasure that little Espirit de Parfum bottle. Can you buy these nowadays?
