    SotA is Serge Lutens' Rahat Loukoum. I guess my taste is running toward the gourmand because I LOVE this. Marzipan! Almonds! Cherries! I'm on a cloud.

    Hello out there! I have to go to a kid's birthday party so I wanted to find a scent that complements the activity. Hence, Le Temps d'une Fete! Have a wonderful Saturday and take care, all.

    One wasp sting and a shower later … I'm rationing out droplets of Coloniali Yuzu. Ready for an afternoon of online viewing with DH: Stargate U and True Blood.

    Quarry, I truly enjoyed your post, and the beautiful picture of a married couple it painted. My wife and I are approaching our 13th anniversary in a few weeks. It hasn't always been easy, but I love her more now than ever. I hope we are still enjoying those quiet conversations after 30 years of marriage.

    Anyway, it is very hot again here today, and I'm sampling:

    Marc Jacobs Men


    Not bad, but I don't think it's full bottle worthy.

    This morning I'm testing Soivohle's Vanillaville, which only lasts 2-3 hours. Then this afternoon it will be on with the Xerjoff testing (I think Lua is the next one) if I can go outside and repot orchids or, if it's raining I'll stay in and work on one of my own perfumes.

    "Tart violet"...hmmm...I just sprayed my bottle of B&BW Violet Bouquet EdT and my daughter thinks it is tart. Top notes anyway; I'll let it sit a bit and see if this persists. This fragrance is not very long lasting, however--my main complaint about it.

    I've ben wearing OFrésia today, from a sample I was allowed to decant at Bluemercury. Meh...it's nice enough but I had to spray it 6 times and even then it is weak. Not FBW for me.


    Edit: B&BW Violet Bouquet does not turn sweet or powdery, and there is a note that is more prominent earlier on-- maybe a citrus, or a green note?-- that is a bit on the sour side.

    But that is small enough recommendation for what is essentially an uninspired violet fragrance, now discontinued.

    Hermes Concentree d'orange vert - I need refreshing after meltiing on the courts this morning. Will switch to something a little more "pretty" later this evening.

    Quarry love - Your story about wearing your DH's favorite scent for sitting and chit-chatting is just beautiful, and so inspiring. It actually brought tears to my eyes. Lucky are those who can appreciate what they have. You're my hero.

    Today's scents were Hermes KC and then YSL Cinema. After a cool shower, I'll take on Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Anisia Bella.

    Saturday (Technically yesterday for me here in oz) I attended a beautiful wedding held at a winery and I wanted something sophisticated and dressy - Van Cleef & Arpels First which I think I fall in love with more and more each time I wear it.
