    Thanks to a generous gift from a wonderful perfume friend, I am wearing Alyssa Ashley for Houbigant Ambergris and it is fabulous! It's fresh and clean yet warm, musky and a bit salty and wears closely and comfortably. A true skin scent.

    Take care, everyone!

    I'm planning on wearing Bulgari Eau Parfumee au The Vert Extreme (is it PC to just say Green Tea Extreme?). I seem to really love that tea'ish note since I also love EA Green Tea, Nicolai's Fig Tea, and Osmanthe Yunnan. Currently, however, I'm in the scent of sweat, after my stint in the gym. It's supposed to be 95F today and as humid as a steam bath. Sigh...that's Atlanta for you!

    RHM, I hope you had a stellar day!

    Early morning & lots of guys running around the building in flak vests.
    This does not bode well, but the sky is Dallas Cowboy blue with a wonderful breeze, and two children in the daycare across the street just waved to me. : )

    Going to hold onto that for some balance in my corner of the universe - wearing TDC Bois d'Iris.

    Hey, MBDevine! Good to see you! Thanks for the good wishes. We are still munching on my Fudgie the Whale birthday cake. I think I have to throw the rest away now or we will both be ginormous.

    I settled on Osmanthe Yunnan, and I am very pleased with my choice. It's lasting longer than I thought it would; smells clean and there is a prominent tea note which I love. Now to decide what's next (SotA) once this wears off!

    RHM, don't throw Fudgie the Whale away - Turn him into an icebox cake! Soften a quart of your favorite icecream, crumble Fudgie in, pour into a disposalble aluminum cake pan lined with wax paper or parchment, press crushed cookies of your choice into the top, and re-freeze. Enjoy one slice at a time for ages. Make your birthday last for months!

    Today I am wearing the absolutely gorgeous Guerlain Sous le Vent... Created for the legendary Miss Josephine Baker in the 1930s. MAN, I love this stuff!

    Sous le Vent notes: Basil, bergamot, lavender, tarragon, carnation, oakmoss, iris, woods, patchouli.

    Poor hot and muggy babies. Wisconsin's been terrific with temps mostly in the 60-70°F range and regular showers for the garden.

    Haven't been feeling scent-venturous for the longest time, just loving the staples. Second day in fruity leather: VIP Room.

    Y'all are smelling yummy!

    I'm on vacation, North Carolina beach house with 18 of my inlaws. I love each and every one (strange, but true) -- but can we all come and visit you in Wisconsin, Quarry? It is WAAAAY too hot here. :-(

    Brought a bunch of samples and decants with me -- this morning grabbed one without looking, and thought it was Norell. Surprised to see it is Amourouse. (now I'll have to try them side by side, my scent memory may be playing tricks on me...)

    I started off the day with Tea Rose, a decant from a generous BNer, but am now going to wash that off and spray on the teeny tiny bit of CDG Lily (Series 1: Leaves) that remains from the sample I was sent by yet another nice BNer.

    Lily is just marvelous stuff! (I'm such a sucker for lily of the valley fragrances.) I've been thinking of springing for a FB of it, but $82 for 50 ml of a fragrance that needs to be resprayed often, gives me pause.

    Edit:

    Crossing this one off my list! Lily smelled great the last time I wore it-- today it disappointed; maybe with the warmer weather it developed differently. I guess I saved myself a bit of money!

    Nice spin, Quarry!

    It's still dipping into the 50s at night, and that means the heat is still on in mid-June! I'm in a sweater right now, for Pete's sake! Oh, what I wouldn't give for a string of hot and sultry days...

    The bright side (in addition to outstanding garden performance- you're right on the money with that one!) is that I've been wearing lots of my favorite cool-weather fragrances. My self-imposed seasonal restrictions are gone, and that's pretty liberating! Viva Diva!

    Hi everyone!
    For this "summery -feeling" day, I'm wearing Hermes 24 Faubourg Eau Delicate, which is a truly sparkling, citrus-floral delicate scent, with a big hit of elegance thrown in for good measure. Only drawback is longevity (3-4 hrs at best), so re-spritzing is required.

    Good morning!

    It's hot here and I will be spendign most of the day in a meeting, so I needed something that wouldn't suffocate everyone in close quarters. Fortunately, my partial bottle of Gucci Accenti arrived yesterday, and who could object to smelling that? The seller was, shall we say, "optimistic" in her estimate of how much was left in it -- but it smells WONDERFUL.
