    I'm in Feminité du Bois, today again. There are also traces of yesterday evening's dinner-and-perfume with a friend - remnants of Le Temps d'Une Fête in the crook of my left arm, quite animalic, and a very vintage musk, soft, sweet, powdery and fleshy, in the right.

    Fantastic scent of Lavender / Galbanum
    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..."

    Hello comrades ,

    I am wearing Bas de Soie from the Serge Lutens range. I am going through an Iris phase and this fits the bill very nicely. Some of my colleagues offered a little cough as I entered the room today, as they have done on some previous occasions when the strangeness of my perfume caught them a little off guard.

    Sestra.

    Jean Patou - Normandie
    Drifting along under the influence of the famous
    carnation/amber base of Patou,
    this is an elegant way to pass the time on a hot summer's day.
    Perhaps a dip in the pool, or a good novel in the shade...

    top notes of carnation,

    Everyone is smelling wonderful today. I wish I could smell that EL on Candy Perfume Boy!

    My scent is Success is a Job in NY, which is a very Freudian choice on my part. All I'll say is, say your prayers my husband is successful in NY. He's home for a visit on the 28th.

    Roma today. I gave absolutely no thought to my scent of the day this AM, and found myself standing in front of my fragrances in a hurry. But I'm OK with my choice. It's pretty easy wearing.

    House siblings with Petruccijc today, as I am wearing Jo Malone Orange Blossom. Does anyone know if this has tuberose in the mix somewhere? I can't find it in any listed notes, but I swear I can catch a whiff of it sometimes. And that's sad, because tuberose is not my friend.

    Layered Neonatura Cocoon and Acqua Serena, i should just go back to bed because for some reason this combo is super comforting. Probably doesn't help that I am having hot cocoa and a fluffernutter sandwich on *gasp* white bread. lol

    I will have to spend a day in a locked up room, working, doing some creative work when my creative mind has been boggled by the end of the quarter grading.
    I am wearing a very light coat of Lancome Climat La Collection edition (which means new and reformulated, but I haven't tried the old one) and when that wears out, I will be pulling out surprise samples from my purse!

    ... and let's hope I'll get this work done!..

    This morning:

    Rive Gauche Pour Homme by Yves St. Laurent



    I have missed this scent. It's been quite a while since I wore it - won't make that mistake again. I forgot how comfortably pleasing it is.

    This afternoon:

    Shake Shake Senora by D.S. & Durga (from a sample)



    Second time I'm sampling this, it sort of smells like root beer candy, and sweaty almonds. It reminds me of those Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful scents: quirky, natural...fun! Not easy to wear though.
