Guerlain's Chamade PdT. It's literally two distinct fragrances, one crisp and floral, the other a suave and aphrodisiac delicacy.
Well the resident insomniac is awake... it's 12.15 midnight in California and I am wearing Joy extrait. Not even yawning yet.... harummph !
Trying to figure out what vials I possess or already have decanted that I can bring on the Boston trip- where I'm sure the weather will be just so freakin' humid and remind why I moved away from there. Thinking about # 5 Eau Premiere and taking any suggestions!

Vincent Marcello´s the magnificent, fabulous
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..."

J'adore for me today.
Oh, what a photo of perfume bottles Mr G!
Dear Mimi and Knit_at_night, I too suffer from insomnia and sympathise
with you both! I was awake until 2.a.m. last night desperately seeking sleep.
I shall wear Nirmala to comfort me.

Good morning, Ladies.

Candy Perfume Boy, what's Like This smell like? I'm extremely curious, missed a lot here evidently!!
Black XS for me today, such a guilty pleasure that I finally succumbed to - bought a bottle on Thursday, hence breaking my inadvertent 6month no buy :O
Hi fellow insomniacs and everyone else, too, of course!!
I´m in Diesel Fuel for Life today.

Hello all. Bas de Soie for me.
I'm wearing some vintage L'Air du Temps parfum this morning. I was craving, literally smelling, this scent last night and couldn't figure out what it was. Finally, I figured it out. I wish this hadn't been reformulated. The vintage bottles don't age well.
At 8 AM the lawn service was cutting my lawn, which, due to the dry weather conditions, did not need a trim. Last week they "trimmed" the new growth of my lilac bush. Must be the summer helpers, they are on auto-ipod.
When I did get up, I had a nosebleed. I know it was the Clartin I took last night but I wonder if this is all some sort of "sign" that I should just go right back to bed.
Think I'll put on a little bit-o-comfort scent first, Bond Lexington Avenue body cream. (Smells like creme brulee! Very different from the cypressy edp.)

Sounds like a number of you need to spend some time with your favorite pillow.
Nothing appeals during this weather except citrus, thus: Bigarade Concentree.
Full house this weekend. Must attend to my surroundings. Adore you all.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

Wishing the sleep-deprived a good night's rest. Insomnia is such a scourge!
Take care, everyone!

JM Blue Agave with 154 layered on top
Dabbed on some La Chasse Aux Papillons by L'Artisan this morning from a sample. Very nice. We will soon see how it layers with Eau de Banana Boat Sport SPF 30 sunblock. Should be interesting smelling tennis in this sweltering heat.
Wishing everybody a great weekend, some good ZZZZZs and sweet dreams seem needed by quite a few.
Good Saturday greetings to everyone.
Wearing Apres l'Ondee in honor of James Cagney's 111th b'day. One of his biographers asked him what his favorite fragrance was. Cagney described something his favorite elementary teacher had worn, and it sounded very close to Apres. I don't think it was, but Cagney loved the smell of heliotrope.
Today I'm giving Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers a test drive. For a going-to-be-hot-as-hell day it's refreshing. I missed out on the Sunflowers of the 90s but this one from what I can smell right now is a pretty basic floral with some melon-aquatic notes, a little "soapy" or "shaving cream"-like note, and a base of white musk. For less than a tenner it's a good, safe, hot-weather scent but not MY usual preference. Maybe it's the power of suggestion behind the name, but the scent does have a "yellow sunshine" effect. (maybe I'd best keep it for the dark days of winter!) It was either Sunflowers or Prada Infusion d'Iris, as I thought that the Prada might be "light enough" for the hot day. Maybe I'll try PIdI later, I haven't worn it since ... forever.
Huggles to you all!

I'm wearing MAC Africanimal. I'd like to know who the perfumer was on this one- I think it's really good.

Insomnia is so irritating, isn't it? Thank goodness, I'm saved from having it (my mother has suffered her whole life w/ it), probably because I'm so active and when I get ready to go to bed, I'm just exhausted. Although last night we went dancing and I had a bit too many Diet Cokes and I had trouble getting to sleep too. Slept in til almost noon...what a guilty pleasure.
Today I'm headed to the mall (something I rarely do) so I will wear something light so I can test perfumes there...maybe:
