    Wearing Bandit parfum, might as well go for the strong stuff today. I need it. The dr put my daughter on bed rest until the 21st, so she's missing most of the end of school. The kids don't get out until the 28th here. Poor girl, she's just miserable & antibiotics wipe you out all by themselves.

    Mimi, I really like FRESH Hesperides myself. Have you tried the soap & body lotion? It's a treat.

    Blessings on all of my virtual friends.

    Hello everyone!

    Hooray for sunny blue skies! I wish I had some laundry to dry...and a clothes line! For this glorious day I'm in the appropriately glorious La Perla edp, the fourth rosey-floral-chypre-from-the-80s in a row for me - my favorite genre, without a doubt. Chic, elegant and sophisticated, mossy green, lush and rosey...to my nose this has a lot in common with a few other favorite rose-centric chypres, namely the discontinued Donna Trussardi and Rose Cardin. Fotunately, La Perla is still available and quite affordable - I highly recommend it.

    Top notes - lemon, bergamot, osmanthus, coriander, cardamom
    Middle notes - rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, iris, honey, pepper
    Base notes - patchouli, vetiver, sandalwood, oakmoss, benzoin





    Hey Wolfie and tdem - I'm so excited to find you talking about Cette nuit là! Fragonard added it to their site rather recently and I assumed it was brand new, especially since it's not in the BN directory. It sounds wonderful, but by now I expect everything from Fragonard to be wonderful. Almost every fragrance I've sampled has gone straight to my Wish List, and I haven't tested one that I really dislike. High quality and very affordable - I just love this house!

    How's the construction coming along, cello?


    Y'all have a beautiful day!

    Thought I'd compare real Chanel No. 5 parfum on my left arm against advertising insert No. 5 on my right arm, just for ha-ha's. Applied liquid to left arm, and … whoops, turns out the paper rubbing was of Eau Premiere (one of Lilybelle's faves, as attested by today's SotD). Strangely, the "dry rub" EP smells much better on my skin than the real juice did. Since nothing about my applications is making sense today, I took a shot of Bel Respiro to the chest, too. So, let's just say I smell Chanel-y now.

    It's a purely gorgeous laundry-drying day in southeastern Wisconsin today. (Special note of appreciation for “Eau Claire” reference, Taolady.)
    Quarry, I often use the dry rub method of sampling - while my husband gives me perplexed and pitying looks. He knows not to throw out the mailers before I've had a chance to investigate. Which reminds me, I was remembering the other day how much I used to enjoy those dry spray body powders that I never see anymore. Smelling "chanel-y" today sounds good, btw!

    Good morning, everyone! You all smell wonderful today.

    mumsy, LOL -- Cabotine does smell a bit like a squashed dandelion!

    I am scent twins with Cello in my sample of Daim Blond. That fruit-syrup opening is a tad much for me, but it is a nice rich tough-girl scent once it settles down.

    Hi all. Great fragrance descriptions today! You have me craving crushed dandelions, marigolds, dark herbs, and other smelly wonders.

    Extending a belated welcome to Mel_Lou!

    I chose Sonoma Scent Studio's Velvet Rose today, and I'm loving its dewy magnificence!

    Givenchy Oblique Rewind over BBW Japanese Cherry Blossom lotion.

    As I was leaving my house this morning, I could smell something great, then I realized it was the one rose bush I have in my yard. The sillage was amazing. At my parents house, my mom's white lilies fill the air. I love when great smelling flowers are blooming.

    I'm back after a short vacation, and wearing a smidgeon of Barbara Bui. I seem to be in a perfume rut at the moment. Hopefully, it will pass soon. Take care, all.

    Months ago, SMM posted a review of AdP Magnolia Nobile in this SOTD thread. It's been posted at the fragrance's page, along with a similarly excellent, descriptive one by Off-Scenter (formerly Vibert?). Anyhow, SMM's review inspired me to try this fragrance.. and then keep trying it. The first time out was .. meh. But in the warm, humid summer months here, it is absolutely fabulous & definitely FBW.

    Quarry smells gorgeous in that Chanel-y combination.

    Today I wore Sous le Vent. It made me happy all day.

    Hello all, or rather anyone still awake.

    Today was a day for vintage Emeraude de Coty, one can truly see how this inspired other fragrances at its time.

    Tonight I am wearing Snob by Le Galion, it is similar to Joy but much smoother around the edges. Very creamy and lush.

    Hugs for all
