    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Wearing something that I wouldn't usually bother with:

    Byzance EdP.

    It's an old bottle and a little on the rancid side, but very pleasant on this cool summer's day.

    Good morning everyone Today I'm going to the hairdresser to dye my eyelashes. In general I feel much more comfortable wearing mascara, and with the eyeinfection it will just be a mess....So I decided this was a good idea.This will make me so much more comfortable when the outdoor concerts I'm attending next week go on Sotd is Dzing!

    Hi Ineeespenes, I have had my lashes died in the past and found it looked good and lasted
    quite well.
    I am testing Iris Pallida - from a sample sent to me by the very generous Ubeuandibeme!
    This scent is truly divine!! I am in love with it although I will never be able to afford a bottle.

    I ate strawberries for breakfast and put self tan on my face. Somehow the only perfume that went with that was SJP's NYC.

    Mine this morning is Guerlain's Terracotta Voile D'Ete, which is discontinued but can be bought online for peanuts, and I recommend you go get some.

    Lilybelle, you smell yummy! I bought a bottle of that unsniffed, and then turned around and bought two more (as if I would ever run out). IT is that good, and for a very reasonable price!

    I'm chilling in Hermes Hiris this morning. Have a great day everyone.

    Dyeing eyelashes and applying self-tanner? I'm woefully under made-up.

    Just did a dry rub of Donna Karan Cashmere Mist from a paper insert. Pleasant enough and a good change of pace for one who tends to get stuck in a rut.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in the all-but-forgotten, original Gucci No.1 from 1974. This has been a favorite of mine for a very long time, and I'm just shocked that so little information about it is available. Just locating an old ad is very difficult, never mind finding any notes! (I believe this is one of the searches that originally brought me to basenotes.) It's an exquisitely blended, sparkling aldehydic floral on a warm chypre base - refined, chic and elegant, vivacious but not flamboyant or loud... just classic in every way. Admittedly, I have a lot of nostalgia attached to it, but I think it's nearly perfect none-the-less. I'm glad I have plenty.





    Y'all have a wonderful day!

    Following on my FB purchase arrival I'm wearing Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur this morning. It starts with a lot of citrus (to my nose lemon-drop sweet lemon) followed by a skin-scent that seems to me to have a little bit of a ginger-snap feeling to it.... I kind of bathed in it, but as with many Guerlain Masculines it is neither strong nor long-lasting. I don't get any civet in it at all and barely get the lavender... definitely not a soapy nose-hit as lavender sometimes is, anyway... blended nicely with the citrus. A good hot-weather scent if you have the ability to reapply OFTEN.

    I like it and will likely decant it into an atomizer for frequent day reapplication, but it's another slight disappointment in its lack of longevity. It smells too nice to last such a short while.

    On a hot day, I love Neil Morris' Zephyr perfume. The top notes are tangerine & papaya, heart notes of honeysuckle & Casablanca Lily. Basenotes (these are my favorite part of the scent) are sandalwood, amber & oceanic musc. Neil does wonderful things with florals and basenotes in his scents.

    Uh oh, I can smell HRH Le Grand Duc from here! But you carry it off with panache!

    I'm wafting around the house in the delicate Eau de Murano this morning. (thank you Twolf for your generosity on the freebies thread!!!).

    This afternoon will get down to business in my new Voluspa Enfleurage sample, which promises to be invigorating with lavender, vanilla and florals. (thanks again!)
