    Quarry, love your dream, and 30 Roses, love your "Quiet!" story. Now I have to go back and read about the "Oy vey" bird. Sounds like s/he'd be right at home in my house.

    Today I'm wearing Caron Poivre surprisingly well. This classic beauty works undexpectedly well in the warm, humid weather. Must be the bracing carnation/clove combination - simultaneous heat and cooling elements - like menthol.

    Have a wonderful day, everyone!

    Caron Poivre notes (from TPC): Red pepper, black pepper, giroflore, carnation, ylang ylang, opoponax, sandalwood, vetiver, oakmoss.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    What wondrous and then wacky story, 30 Roses. Literally LingOL. Would prefer to smell your landscape today than mine. I took the garbage out front and noticed three stink bugs on the vining crops. I swept them off by hand and stepped on them. The briefest touch has impregnated my hands with their gruesome scent (it's kind of sweet and green). Have washed my hands four times now, so I think I'll be able to eat our lunch of muffuletta without wearing latex gloves.

    Pomander, we could be so wonderfully bad for each other.

    Haunani, I am going to derive much vicarious pleasure from the dawn of your retirement, so go ahead and flaunt the experience.

    Owing to my "dream house," I'm in Jicky.
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    Stinkbugs, bad parrots, and African frogs - this thread is so ANIMALIC today!

    I am in Le Monstre -- Chanel No. 5. Yes, I smell like everyone's grandmother, and no, I don't care.

    This scent is great, but ... MORE KITTENS!

    Hi Quarry, you were smart to get a cockatiel -- ones I've seen are cute, feisty, smart and not so noisy! Hmmmm... BRIGHT IDEA ... maybe I'll put my bird on the freebies thread... (Enjoyed your dream! I dream about perfume... a LOT.)
    30 Roses, LOL... you tell a story well!
    Haunani, what will you do when you retire? Just think -- you could spend ALL DAY on basenotes!!

    Parure by Guerlain (thanks ComDiva)



    I disliked this when I first tested it, but I'm coming around to it today. The plum note mixed with the aldehydes smells like a chypre soda pop. Funny how when you give a scent a full wearing, rather than spray on your arm, it's a totally different experience.

    Welcome Dawnska! Good to see you here.

    Quarry, I really enjoyed your dream sequence.

    I'm wearing Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte today. It's become my favorite for wearing in the heat. This way I get to hoard my #19, or at least that's how I am justifying the purchase in my own mind. Eau Verte does garner lots of compliments, which is always unexpected but nice when it happens.

    I smelled TM's Womanity yesterday an really, really liked it. It is going to be difficult to describe. Calling it a "skin" scent underates it. I've certainly never smelled anything like it: salt/figs/woods/skin. Wonderful!

    Wow, Quarry, how nice it is to have smelly dreams! I was putting together students' class schedules in my last dreams... kinda fun, but Guerlain's boutique dream eats the students' schedules dreams for breakfast!!

    I am sampling Amouage Lyric Woman today, and it's quite lovely.
    we'll see about the SOTD! I'll get to it when I go to the library.

    Good morning! (Afternoon, maybe? I just woke up.) Testing Ungaro's Diva today. I'm really enjoying it - despite the fact that my hair's a mess and I've got makeup smudges under my eyes, it's making me feel pretty darn sexy.

    I do get a giggle from these awful old ads!

    Wearing Fleurs De Rocaille, non feebly. Work is crazy stupid busy, the temperature is up in the hot and stickies and Fleurs is just so cool and unflappable.

    Scent twin (or twit, as the case may be) with Lilybelle in Apres L'Ondee EDT. It' felt perfect when I applied this morning- when it was a foggy California day- and it still hanging in there 8.5 hours later.

    Hi Mimi. @Raindropsparkle--thanks for the welcome. I'm not exactly new, just so old I seem new to the younger generation. I'm retro.

    knit_at_nite- wow ! Apres L'Ondee struggled to last on my skin - poof in 15-20 minutes.
