    Default S of the D - Sunday June 27

    Well.

    It's all y'all's fault.

    You went on AND ON about

    Laguna
    on Tuesday so NACHERLY I had to have it and by Friday - I DID!!

    Luvvin' it!! Goes on slightly peppery - morphs into grapefruit and settles into briny, slightly fruited flowers. Go figure. Many complain of it's assertiveness - not on me.

    Anyway, I'm a convert.

    Sunny Sunday to Youse!!

    Weather here has been unbelievably warm and sunny all

    Hope you are all in the pink.

    Good morning everyone. Today I'm in a very small amount of Tam Dao. One of the few scents that doesn't seem to trigger my dad's allergy.

    Hello Basenotes! Long time no see... I missed y'all!!

    I have realised that I have not bought a bottle of perfume since December. I have however, been buying shoes fortnightly on average (blame my two casual jobs in shoestores). I had been wearing JPG Classique for a couple of months on end! OHNOES!! Then a Body Kouros phase (got many compliments ).

    Now today I'm joining Nostalgie in Ormonde Woman

    So what's new and exciting that I missed? Le Grand Duc, loving your profile pic!

    Jillsy, welcome back. One always wonders what happens to those who disappear. Irrationally, one worries, but really, it is probably life that intervenes.

    I am wearing Fragonard parfum.

    Hey there, Jillsy.

    It's gray and storming again! I love it! And highs in the 70s all week to come. Whoo-hoo!

    Welcome home Jillsy!

    I'm wearing a new found summer-leather scent, Dzing!. This doesn't go all stifling and powdery in the heat and humidity, but instead stays true to itself. I'm thinking that the ginger and saffron notes keep the leather accord in line. Love it! I wonder how Kelly Caleche (my summer-floral-leather scent) will feel about Dzing!? Perhaps I'll give them a go together and see how they get along.

    Yes I know, I'm an odd duck today...must be the weather. Have a great Sunday all

    **Waves** to Jillsy!

    I'm wearing L'Occitane's pretty rose fragrance today, called Eau des 4 Reines. I like this one very much. It's a slightly salty & fruity rose...perfect for these roaster oven temps we're having.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in Cabochard today, vintage perfume with a light spritz of the vintage edt. Mossy green and herbal leather chypres like this (and Scherrer, Azuree, Miss Balmain, etc.,) seem to work best in exactly the kind of weather we're having today - warm, damp and still, almost unearthly calm after the storms. Cabochard just comes alive and blends beautifully with the smell of wet earth, leaves and sidewalk. Although he usually recognizes Cabochard, Fiance didn't even realize I was wearing perfume - he thought the gorgeous scent was coming in the window!

    Cabochard was created by Bernard Chant in 1959.

    Top notes - aldehydes, citrus, tarragon, sage, spices
    Middle notes - jasmine, rose, geranium, orris
    Base notes - patchouli, vetiver, castoreum, oakmoss






    Hey TaoLady - I'm loving that Laguna on you! Of course it's not too strong - spray with abandon! I get some luscious tangy and creamy lemon curd at one point - give it another sniff and see if you think I'm just plain crazy. Salty, sultry and beachy with sweet tropical flowers and lemon tarts - delightful and delectable! And such a great sunny vacation scent. To me, Laguna is Dune's fun and flirty younger sister on Spring Break in Cabo...no wonder it suits you!



    Y'all have a wonderful day!

    Sympathies to those suffering with the heat and humidity.

    From a sample, I'm trying out Black Cashmere by Donna Karan today. Not feeling the love thus far. It violates one of my personal commitments to not smell like a church of any denomination. Will retain as a refence sample, though.

    Oh YES Evangeline - DO get that lemon curd effect right behind the grapefruit - or maybe part of the grapefruit. Just LUVVIN' the infinite faces of Laguna. Thanks for the lemming-ry!!

    Many of our town's folks woke up to 2 feet of rain in their basements. We are lucky -- only 3 inches! The soil is so saturated -- it storms every night, with tornado warnings several nights in a row. The air is heavy.

    Aldehydes for me again -- Worth Je Reviens from an older bottle.

    Hi jillsy! Freezing there yet?

    Happy Birthday to oolala -- I found out on another thread.
