    It is hot today!

    I started off applying one of the samples (saturated wipe) I got a few days ago, of the new L'Occitane Verbena Summer Secret limited edition EdT that is just being introduced today. It is very nice but rather fleeting. Maybe spraying more liberally from the actual bottle would make it last longer, especially if it gets on clothing. Hubby seems to like it anyway so may pick up a bottle, we'll see.

    I then tried layering Provence Santé Vervain (verbena) over Rosine Diabolo Rose, for the heck of it. Very bright and fun, but the verbena overwhelms the rose, at least in the top notes. Probably not worth repeating. Ha, I do like experimenting with the layering.

    Started out in Masaki Matsushima this morning. It lasted all of 30 minutes. Switched to Citron de Vigne. One hour later, I can no longer detect it. Hummpphhhh. My skin seems to be swallowing up whatever I put on (granted, these are light scents, but CdV always last a long time on me &!/?1!@).

    There. I just applied some Rose Barbare. Hopefully that will last til the end of the day!

    Update: It's now 5:41PM, and I can almost no longer smell my 3rd SotD. Yikes! It must be that my sniffer is out of whack today. I'll head home and try my luck with a SotE.

    Please Scent Gods...restore the mighty power of smell to this devoted servant !!!!

    I think I will get a backup bottle, too (a rare move for me). It's just SO good.

    Today I'm in Vanille Galante.

    Hi, gang! It is brutally hot in the Boston area, with no sign of letting up. Phhhhhhht!!!

    Anyhow, today I'm staying cool in one of the few neroli-heavy scents I can actually wear (Quarry, we'll have to do a side-by-side skin chemistry test in a couple of weeks, given how strong a negative reaction you had to my SoTD choice today... Which is, Fragonard Fleur d'Oranger. On me, it stays fresh and lightly orange-y, but the musk probably rounds it out a bit.

    Fleur d'Oranger notes: Neroli, Bergamot, Jasmine, Musk.
    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

    Your royal Duke-ness, about the "ugly"Zen bottle-

    I was admiring it & thinking how practical it would be if all fumes came in square bottles; how many more bottles one could fit in a drawer or box because there would be no wasted space.

    Can you tell a lot of my purchases didn't come with boxes, and more importantly, that I am running out of places to stash said purchases? (must search old threads regarding storage ideas)

    I awoke sniffles and itchy throat so I'm working from home today. Hence, I have liberally applied Chergui without fear of offending a coworker.

    This afternoon, since the MdM has faded, I'm in what was left of a basenoters's sample sent to me of Aria di Capri Carthusia. Strong aldehydes and citrus and... other stuff... an oh-so-summery thing that one is. (and it's longer-lasting than the MdM... if louder!) Great for today's weather.

    GENDARME

    (My first time wearing this since I had it on when I came down with a case of food poison a couple of months ago. I had hoped that the reason I haven't reached for it recently had nothing to do with negative memories. However wearing it today I think that may be the case. It still smells really good. I'm just not enjoying it as much as I used to, and it was one of my favorites. I hope it is just too soon, and giving it more time I will love it again in the future.)

    Hello dear BNers!

    SOTD: JM Vintage Gardenia (again!)

    So...very early this morning, I dabbed on a bit of Magie Noire from a sample. I'd never tried it and was eager to do so. I thought "if it's not working, then I can scrub it off in the shower". But... I LOVED this first sampling of it...it's a bit much for summer (might be overwhelming), but so beautiful...will re-sample soon. I saw that the reviews of MN are very polarized, which I found interesting...

    I woke up at 5 today, so my day started early. I'm working from home today, so some interesting sample choices here
    I got By Kilian Back to Black on one arm and Ajmal Abraaj on the other arm. Boy, that one is strange! Is that oud that I am smelling? It's some different wood. I'm not sure I like it or not. It was a part of honey sampler, and I didn't think it had too much to do with honey. On the other hand, by Kilian has everything to do with honey and is really nice. I will be trying it again. Usually, most of the time, all my "love" tries start with three stars, and then sometimes they go all the way to four or five, let's see if this one does the same!

    Oh! This is exactly what I got out of my mailbox today! I wanted to try it for a while, since I'm pretty wild about verbena. I might try it today, there's still time!

    Wouldn't it be hysterical if it were sold in a round box?

    SoTE: So far, a reapplication of Mouchoir de Monsieur... I really am tired this evening and am not going to can tomatoes tonight (which is disappointing but actually a good break) as I did not get enough from the garden to do so. (the rains were tough on the tomato plants and I lost quite a few large tomatoes to rot because of it.) And I still have to water again tonight, as we're in a "no rain" hole between two storms. Le sigh. Oh, the pressures of a first-year garden's learning experiences on the urban gardenista!

    SotE L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger . My fragrances are not lasting well on me at all today. It must be the heat causing them to evaporate faster, or maybe the air conditioning affects them as well?
