    With tart violets yesterday, I have decided on trying to layer something lemony/citrucy with violets. Now I have to comb through our Citrus SnS threads for a couple of years.

    Happy Daddy's Day to all Daddies!!!

    Feeling wistful this morning. Got news yesterday that a sweet youngish biker from our AA group was dead of accidental poisoning and the hardly-sober guy responsible is not to be found. Sadness all around.

    So sought what promised to be the gentle comfort of KM's Hanae...."A misty teahouse garden in Kyoto, in a pale spring morning was the set for the inspiration. A chord of fine freshness of hesperides and powdery floral notes confers iridescence and tenderness." (I promise - every word of this is eggsackly reproduced from the booklet copy.)

    The story you told was so sad, Taolady. To get into recovery and then die, when life is just unfolding....

    Today I'm testing Spiritueuse Double Vanille. It's very pretty, but might not have the vanilla 'oomph' I'm looking for...

    Taolady, I'm so sorry! How sad.

    Thanks to a wonderful friend, I'm wearing Jean Patou Pan Ame
    Notes: linden blossom, violet leaves, pear, peach, sandalwood, musk

    This is so lovely, a fruity-floral done right. It is delicate and sheer, yet the touches of sandalwood and musk add substance.

    Ah, Tao, that's sad. I can imagine that knowing the chap was in recovery must be some comfort to his family - the idea that he had found that strength within himself. But the potential that's been lost... heartbreaking.

    I am wearing a fragrance that was a gift from a friend here on Basenotes - Potiron. Bond No. 9 Silver Factory. I like it very much; incense it ideal for summer somehow and it's especially good on drizzly grey days like today.

    I wish you all a happy day with - however it may manifest itself in your life - a positive paternal element.
    And for the Solstice tomorrow, blessed be.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in the vivacious and glamorous (and very rosey) Lipstick Rose today. I can't help but feel posh and sexy in this ultra-girly cloud of hot pink...so I'm not sure what made me reach for it on this particular morning, but it was the perfect choice none-the-less. Fiance likes it, too!




    Many hugs to you, (((TaoLady.)))

    And to the Dads out there - Happy Father's Day!


    Y'all have a wonderful day!

    Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers

    Caron - Infini

    Delightful in the original formula
    with its 'Caron' carnation base.
    Not to be discounted in the more recent
    version with more aldehydic emphasis.
    Powerful, almost gaseous to start,
    I am fueled as for lift-off.
    Jungle florals and sandalwood mingle passionately.
    There's nothing to stop me as I soar to an

    Created in 1912 by Ernest Daltroff in collaboration
    with Gerad Lefort, taking 15 years to perfect.
    A soft rich floral aldehyde parfum with notes of
    jasmine, jonquil, lily of the valley, tuberose and sandalwood.

    A little moist towelette of L'Occitane Cherry EDT Cerisier. I don't think it does justice to the fragrance, but I am yet to experience it from the bottle -- just when it got discontinued! Well, but bought it on sale, that's a plus!

    It's rainy day here.

    I was thinking the same thing, Quarry. My father was an alcoholic who died in a car accident. Funny thing was, he had sobered up and was a pedestrian hit by a driver. That was certainly not the phone call we had expected. It doesn't always work out the way we think.

    I'm wearing Prada L'Eau Ambrée today, it's sheer and lovely in hot weather.

    My SotD is Jean Charles Brousseau Fleurs d'Ombre Violette Menthe, from a sample sent by a fragrance friend. Twolf, you may want to try this one sometime. It's not citrussy, but it does have some green zing from the top notes. I like it!

    Found these notes listed on various websites: bergamot, wild blackcurrant, peppermint, mint leaves, parma violet, peony, hawthorn, white flowers, rose, sandalwood, oak, sweet notes, and musk.

    Oh geeze Babes - that's AWFUL. Special thoughts for you on this Father's Day.

    Continued with Keiko - Passiflora, "Passion Fruit, Floral Notes, Lychee, Green Mango, Yellow Fruits, White Musc". Although described as "sparkling" on me it is more ethereal and elusive. Like Hanae, not very lasting. Maybe it's my mood.

    P.S. Pardon thoughtlessness...many thanks for hugs and healing vibes.You guys are the BEST.

    Thank you for the Father's Day wishes. My two girls are the joy of my life.

    Today I wore my Father's Day gift to myself:

    Creed Erolfa

    I absolutely love this one. I wore it several times (from a decant) last month, and it smelled great. Unfortunately in the extreme heat it kind of goes into hiding on my skin. Now that I'm inside this evening I can smell it again (great as usual). I may just have to wait until some slightly cooler days to wear it. It may be a spring/fall scent for me, or at least not a mid-summer scent.
