    I am doing an interesting arm comparison today -- it's Mitsouko new EDP on one arm and Dawn Spencer Hurwitz's Mitsouko "type" in essential oil on my other arm. Oh dear! I wrote elsewhere that I can detect a smell of peach in a new EDP but it's not like a real peach, it is more of a platonic idea of a peach. In Dawn's oil it's a real thing, its skin mostly.

    Le Grand Duke, how do you like Tresor Elixir? How different it is from Tresor?

    Hugs, no, better yet cool ocean winds from the Pacific to everyone who's hot today!
    I am joining those who are looking for a warm Summer day, it's very cool here. I think low 60s and might rain. It's the Pacific Northwest coast for ya!

    Y'all have a great day and keep smelling wonderfully!

    Thalia, what a lovely painting to illustrate your SOTD.

    Wearing Calandre (wore it yesterday, too) today. It handles the high temps and humidity well.

    Hope everyone has a good Tuesday!

    Scent twins with VintageVogue in Paco Rabanne Calandre. I figured that with a decent night's sleep behind me I should give this one another go. And verily, when not sleep deprived, no headache! I'd like to get to know it better, but my Mum is visiting soon and I know this is sooo much more her than me, so she will be gifted the bottle before I steal too much from it!

    I absolutely love it. I usually use the EdP, but this one is even denser,
    it has longevity and sillage to die for. The smell is the same, only
    stronger. Well worth the extra dough. Oh, and the flacon is the cutest!

    SotD for the last 3 days has been No.5 Eau Premiere layered with No.5 parfum (modern release). I love how the EP sparkles and how the parfum has such depth...but I am also discovering that I prefer No.5 on days off or for a relaxed afternoon-evening. It just doesn't have the horsepower I need for work (think Dior Homme or No.19).

    I've missed alot of birthdays--hope everybody had happy ones, full of fun and good frags!

    Some Boudoir, Vivienne Westwood arrived thismorning and I have been smelling it all day. It doesn't smell like the review says, of old pants on me (at least I hope not). It's actually rather spicy, floral, powdery and nice. It isn't quite as long lasting or strong on me as some say and I have refreshed it this evening. So far, I am delighted with it on first wearing.

    I must say I like the sound of the Guerlain Sous le Vent. Lovely ingredients.

    Take care, everyone!
    Oh, that is a fabulous scent! I have a very small decant that I treasure beyond words. It always smells a little citrus to me, too.

    Today I wore No.5 Elixir Sensuel; I'm wearing Kenzo Amour for bed. I'm really saying goodbye to it; I love it, but it's way too heavy on me and it gives me a headache. Arrrrgh, so frustrating.

    Howdy friends. Thanks to the lovely Potiron, my SOTD today was Bond No 9 Silver Factory. I love incense in hot weather and this fits the bill perfectly.
    I got to see Potiron, VMIhatecivet and Alicka69 on Saturday for a Basenotes meet-up. It was great! (Well, duh! Of course it was! These gals are all great.)

    I'm thinking of a spritz of Mitsouko parfum for bed, which is calling me.
    Have a good one y'all. Peace, love and good smells. x

    My morning scent was Blu Mediterraneo Bergamotto di Calabria from a sample "discovery kit," layered with the body creme of the same scent. A great fresh scent for my all-day meeting with subject matter experts from DC. (The floating somewhat ephemeral citrus scent with hints of wood and floral - top notes: Calabrian bergamot, Calabrian citron; middle notes: cedarwood, red ginger; base notes: Vetiver, Benzoin, musk - kept me awake and calm. Heh.) This afternoon I switched back to yesterday's afternoon scent, Guerlain Samsara, EDT, new formulation (which I just wrote up a review of on "the blog" in the sig line)... and of which I am growing swiftly rather fond.

    Hope everyone is well, I am quite busy and finally have company coming tonight... hugs all 'round! And to Le Grand Duc(kiness) ... your current sig is making me blush, maybe it's the double-entendres! (not a bad thing, eh.)
