    Les Plus Belles Lavandes

    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..."

    Feminité du Bois, apparently I'm done wearing summery fragrances for this year, even if the weather is rather warm. I've been breaking out a lot of my fall staples lately.

    Sharing the house with our darling Roberto in Caron, Montaigne for me. It's been a while since I wore it last and it's even more beautiful than I remember. I must wear it more often, it's a crime to let it languish.

    I love DSH Route d'Iris, excellent choice. Montaigne is wonderful too tdem, & like you I haven't worn it in a while. BUT...I have been craving Chamade of late, so I'm scent twins with Evangeline in Chamade (edt). I go nuts spraying the edt.

    My daughter & I had a perfume battle last night. We were being very silly. We grabbed the "stinkiest" perfume, from the other persons perspective, and tried to spray them with it. She got me with a Bath & Body Works Exotic Coconut body spray and I thought I really got her with Tom Ford Black Orchid. Turns out, the Black Orchid smells wonderful on her. I handed her the bottle for her to keep.

    Happy Birthday Nostalgie!

    Today I'm wearing a sample of CDG Series 2 Red: Carnation. Although it is strong, it is not harsh and smells more like our actual garden carnations than all the others I've tried, including Bellodgia, LV Garofano and SMN Garofano; it has that slightly vanillic, creamy undertone of the real flowers. I have to wait to see how it dries down but so far, so good.

    My eyes have been super red and bothering me for the last few days. I went to the doctor today, so I have all kinds of eye drops. In the mean time, I had to throw away all my make up (sigh), just in case.

    My SOTD was Caron's Eau Reglisse and my SOTE is (don't laugh) Notorious. I just got it at Marshall's after the doctor's appointment. I had to reward myself with a little something.

    CRose and other USAers -- let me tell you that I smelled autumn in the air first time this year today. It is coming! Although we will still be having a few 90F days ahead, it is coming and I can't wait.

    Chanel Beige was my SotD. Oh how I love thee! To paraphrase IKEA's motto a few years ago: Do not be bold, be beige! And I would go Red, Beige and Blue every day, if I could. Will be buying a smaller bottle soon -- as soon as it is available.

    Miss Tao wrote to me -- she is busy but otherwise doing just dandy. Preparing for a trip, still baking on Facebook or whatever. Oh how I miss her!

    Tried to post about 12 hours ago but server issues ate my post

    Hope you had a lovely day, Nostalgie! Happy Birthday.

    My SOTD was vintage Diorissimo EDT.

    Tonight- testing Touch by Fred Hayman, of which even one spray is turning out to be far too 1980's Joan Collins-y on my skin. The mid notes were the the nicest. If I wore this to work, I think people would cower under their desks.
