I'm lazing around the house after another late night and decided to give Gucci Envy another test run. So far it's not really doing it for me. The combo of notes comes off with a sort of 'plastic' smell and though I love an Amber base it just doesn't hook me enough to go out and get his one. This is one I really wanted to like but I don't really. It's not unappealing just not wowing me at all.

Wall Street by Bond No.9
SL Daim Blond. The BN consensus suggests this is more for chilly weather, but I wore a small application in hot, steamy weather today and I found it very pleasant. But it definitely could become super-cloying quickly on a hot day, so yes, just a tiny squirt, no more.
A&F Woods from a 15 year old mini bottle. It's dead flat on my skin. Oh, well...it could not live forever.
What a wonderful weekend this has been...today I spent the morning running in the park, worked in the yard all afternoon and then spent the evening at Canyon Ranch Resort & Spa in Miami Beach having the most deliriously wonderful massage and spent all day in the steam rooms, saunas, igloo rooms and whirlpools. I am floating-on-air right now.
After a day in the spa, I opted for:
Timbuktu by L'Artisan Parfumeur
Tonight, on the couch, waiting for Mad Men Season 4 to begin in a few minutes, its:
Epic Man by Amouage (from a Luckyscent sample)
Antaeus, by Chanel.
