    Moschino, it's fantastically rich and spicy today.

    Etro Ambra. Such a lovely, well balanced amber. Definitely on the sweeter end of the amber scale, yet there's an airiness to it that keeps it out of cloying territory.

    Best to all!

    Sweet Oriental Dream - Montale from a sample.
    A sweet gourmand for me too, today, lovely, even in this heat!

    Ummm, all-y'all really are smelling good...

    Lilybelle, LOL, poor dog sleeping off the effects of two small boys!


    Wearing Fendi Theorema today. (yes, bit the bullet and got a bottle off ebay before they disappear entirely!) This will be even nicer as a fall scent, I think... but it's light enough for our hot humid day as well. The cinnamon and spices read as incense to me, which I enjoy in summer.

    Wore Comme de Garçons Play last night after a dip in the pool.

    We are under an "Excessive Heat Warning" according to the National Weather Service. It's supposed to get up to 102 degrees with 40% humidity for a heat index of 11. Yikes! I'm staying cool with Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts for Women. I'm hoping it will be light enough that I won't be scolded by other choir members this evening.

    Testing … 1, 2 … testing …

    Atelier Grand Neroli on the left wrist. The top notes were sweet-orange delish for a short time, and now it's gone boring and a little stinky.
    • Top notes: Moroccan neroli, lemon, Sicilian bergamot, petitgrain
    • Heart notes: Persian galbanum, moss, birch leaves
    • Base notes: clean musk, white amber, vanilla from Madagascar

    Atelier Trefle Pur on the right wrist. I rather like this, and I should given the notes include many favorites, but it's so darn hard to smell! Maybe I'm totally missing the evasive violet.
    • Top notes: bitter orange, cardamon, basilic
    • Heart notes: clover absolute, violet leaves, Tunisian neroli
    • Base notes: patchouli moss, musk

    Meh. At least they're not scrubbers.

    Toodles, tots.

    Hello dear BNers! Thanks for your cheery good wishes and thoughts on the little one's entry into 1st grade. Hope you all are having a wonderful day. Kind of indecisive this morning, so I just went with a no-brainer...

    Good evening, everybody. I hope you've all had excellent days. I got home from work and found my package of Gorilla Perfume samples from Lush, so I thought I'd babble through my impressions. Er, because these are my scents of the evening. I reek at the moment!

    Tuca Tuca - Vile violet, it made me nauseous, I had to scrub it off. I like violet, but not this much of it. So sweet and cloying.
    The Smell of Freedom - A disappointment. Neither woody nor spicy on my skin.
    Imogen Rose - Interesting. Reminded me of Tauer's Vetiver Dance - the vetiver accord is strong. I don't get much rose from it. It's initially quite powdery, but that fades. It's not as wild as Vetiver Dance. Good thing? Bad thing? I'm quite fond of Vetiver Dance, it's such a riot, so I guess for me it's a bad thing.
    Karma - But where did it go? Seriously, I just put this on ten minutes ago. Ridiculous.
    Orange Blossom - Pretty but mild. It reminds me of the essential oils I dabbled with as a teenager. Not sure I want to smell like this now.
    Vanillary - I'm really not sure what to do with this one! I like it a lot. It's the smokiest vanilla I've ever smelled, but I love smoky perfumes. I'll probably buy this, it's pleasantly unusual.
    Lust - Another one I'm tempted to buy. Apparently I'm a sucker for jasmine. This is all jasmine, not much wood here. It smells a little skanky to me! But it also reminds me of 24, Faubourg. And Joy. Wow, foolish comparisons, but that's where my brain goes. So I guess Lust isn't all skank.

    Those are my brief, brief thoughts. I'm looking forward to testing these in more depth over the coming days, particularly Vanillary and Lust. But, god, I won't be touching Tuca Tuca again. No way!

    While out at the mall at Farmington, I tried Ninfeo Mio again. Alas, it has that sweet brown sugar/vanilla Yankee kind of candle smell as it dries down. Too bad.

    Had a nice chat with an SA at Sephora named Alex. Alex has over 80 perfumes but was unaware of the niche world of perfumes, or Basenotes, even. Hopefully he'll look us up now.

    Good evening everyone!

    I'm in my mother's vintage Infini parfum tonight. I get my perfumista tendencies from my mom, and we have very similar tastes and wardrobes. She brought me my own bottle of Infini (my first bottle of pure parfum aside from minis) from Paris over thirty years ago...I think I was eight. I swooned, and it's been my favorite Caron ever since.

    Mmmm... you are all smelling nummy today! I'm working on a packet of Caron samples that's making the rounds. So far, have tried Acaciosa (wow!), Tubereuse (very nice!), and – today's – Or et Noir (compelling, but heavier than I usually go for). This is fun!

    So what IS Farnesiana like, dear Haunani? Did I ever mention that I once had a dream about Farnesiana? So ever since then, it's been on my "must sample" list. :P

    Tonight I'm trying 2 from the Ineke sampler - Evening Edged in Gold (left arm) & Field Notes from Paris (right arm). Hm
