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..."

Good Morning everyone!
HYPNOTIC POISON is my scent of choice for today.
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
Morning, all! Been a while. I've been enjoying my L'eau d'Ambre a lot, but this morning I went out for an early pre-breakfast run and felt like something fresher. Hence:
I love the feeling this gives me at work. It does indeed make me feel powerful. But also elegant!
My SOTD is Tom Ford Grey Vetiver.

Have a great day, all.
This week, 'Chanel Cuir de Russie: Skin Scent' at http://thescentimentalist.blogspot.com/
I reek today!
I'm trying out a few things, so I have Chanel No 22 in the crook of my right elbow, Cabochard edt (modern) on my right wrist, SJP's Lovely Twilight on my left wrist and Miss Dior edt (modern) in the crook of my left elbow. I'm kind of auditioning perfumes for a wedding I'm going to next month but I'm also deciding what last-minute additions are going to make it into my travel bag for a trip home to Wales to see my Mum and friends. I leave tomorrow for 2 weeks and I have a very healthy stash of perfumes at Mum's already, so it's more a case of checking what I absolutely can't live without for 2 weeks.
So far, I've decided that I'm leaving Cabochard here and that Chanel 22 is perfect to wear to the wedding. (Other strong contenders are Ormonde Jayne Woman, Frederic Malle's Iris Poudre and Guerlain's Vol de Nuit, though I'm going to have to revisit Nahema.) Just waiting for the musks in the SJP to kick in so I can assess it for the trip home, though it's likely to go just because I'm a ditherer.
Hope you're having a good day, wherever you are and whatever's on your mind.

I'm streamlining my collection http://community.basenotes.net/showt...29#post1219729
Woke up wanting to wear Guerlain's Terra Cotta Voile d' Ete, Parfum d' Empires Osmanthis Interdite and Les Parfum de Rosine's Rosa Flamenca (the last two from decant's from a most wonderful Basenoter). And of course, there's always Dzing! which has become a real treasure. Perhaps I'll know which one to wear after I take my shower!!

I've been in Pleasures for the last two days. It's wierd but my Pleasures kind of smells like Lolita Lempicka on me today. Not complaining though. I love Lolita and I only have a half a spray left lol.

Hello Happy Day
Wearing from a sample :LOUKHOUM Eau POUDREE by Mecheri
Loukhoum Eau Poudree is a gourmand version of the original Loukhoum perfume. It is charming, powdery and sugary blend of white rose, orris powder, violet leaf, narcissus, candied almond, Madagascar vanilla and crystalline musk.
I like its sweetness it's like a sugared candy

Thanks to Wordbird's mention in her SOTD post, I'm wearing Frederic Malle's Iris Poudre.
Don a wig of larks and fly!
Today I´m in Alien (TM), but there is a note in it that disturbes the lovely, indolic jasmine...

Thanks Well...there's always facebook,but don't wanna "bother him" too much....Feel like a 14 year old now...*blushing*
Vintage Coty L'Aimant, catching lovely little whiffs of myself all the time. Powder, creamy, vanillic sandalwood and for whatever reason, I'm getting musk, too.
Good Morning All. I thought it was me, I'm in a weird mood also. My SOTD is Reese Whitherspoon's 'IN BLOOM' loving the magnolia note,(ya all) Have a great and safe day.
Wonderful SotD. around here!
I'M WEARING Santa Maria Novella Angels of Florence which kind of reminds me of J'Adore.
Sharing the house with sophi, I'm in the delicate and breezy beauty of Keiko Mecheri's White Petals.
By the way, as another adoring fan of Keiko Mecheri and her Loukhoums, here's my take on them.
The original Loukhoum is absolutely a gourmand - it's yummy, sticky-sweet and almondy Turkish Delight! Loukhoum eau Poudrée is just a bit sweeter to my nose, maybe more "candied" somehow but not any lighter...and oddly enough, I think Loukhoum is actually more powdery than eau Poudrée, possibly due to Loukhoum's hawthorne note. Then there's the Parfum du Soir - I didn't want to love it, but it's just too gorgeous not to! I find it to be a rosier and more elegant version of the original, although it's still extremely delicious. They're all quite similar, but I think their differences make them each covet-worthy. I'd love to own one of those wonderful boxed sets of all three - that would be heavenly!
Y'all have a wonderful day!

Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
Our visitors went home this morning and the house is eerily empty and quiet without two little boys running around in it. My new name is Inter-galactic Aunt S---, btw. The poor dog is sleeping it off in the corner. I'm trying out some SJP Lovely this morning, which I didn't really like when it first came out, but I'm enjoying it today. Well, I've always had a fickle nose/chemistry. Hope all here are well.
Chamade edt...everywhere! Love this! I do, I do.
