Good Morning Everyone. Wish a Fabulous day to all of you
Eau de parfum
Blue Amber notes: Italian bergamot, bourbon geranium, coriander, patchouli, vetiver, amber, vanilla
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..."

I can still smell last night's INSOLENCE on my arm despite a shower this morning. That didn't stop me applying a new SotD from a sample:
ETRA ETRO edt
Notes of Allspice, Jamaican pepper, geranium, Indian sandalwood, rose petals, musk, vanilla.
Green, spicy, herbal - I could eat it with a nice glas of Sauternes, though the perfume is not too sweet. If it were much sweeter than this I'd try to scrub it in the hope that it didn't linger as long as the tenacious Insolence.
I applied it almost 4 hours ago, and its distinction and character have not diminished. I hope this effect lasts all day. I'm enjoying this very much. Perhaps my now subdued but still present Insolence is lending it a touch of violet flower power, but I suspect I already find Etra Etro to be full bottle worthy.

Love your SotD, ROBERTO!
Today I'm in Britney's Believe.
I'm in Amouage Opus II today. It's nice enough, but it's fading fast. I'm not feeling that crazy MUST BUY NOW urge.

Sestra, I love Etra! It's one of several Etro frags I own and enjoy. I'm not big on perfume layering as a rule but do make an exception with this house: Etra layered with Patchouly is an especially nice combo.

Greetings tdem, it's lovely to see you again.
I've fallen in love with Etra on my first wear. I can't remember enjoying my own scent this much in a long time. I smell divine, if I say it myself.
I have to add that I've inadvertently combined it with last night's Insolence, a dusting of which lingers on my arm depite a shower with lightly iris-perfumed soap this morning . Etra is on my chest and neck, dabbed from a sample vial. It's an unexpectedly wonderful combination.
I have a sample of Etro Patchouly as well, so tonight I will layer that with Etra as you suggest.
I wore Ava Luxe LTBL a couple of nights ago. I expected a repeat of the night it kept me wide awake, but not so. I slept like a log after enjoying that gorgeous comforting scent. I didn't get the LTBL love before now.
My nose feels revived.

Good Morning Ladies,
I am wearing Creed Acqua Fiorentina, a most perfect summer day frag.
Have a great day.

With my SIL-to be well on the mend, Bridezilla-to be in better spirits and all systems "go" for the wedding next Saturday, I still find myself anxious as heck.
Samsara EDP with all its sandalwood to make me feel calmer?
I'm in Rossy de Palma this morning.
Thanks ineespenes - I had a great day! And thanks again to everyone for wishing me well as I start another year! I'm genuinely moved by your thoughtfulness, and I'm so happy to be a part of such a wonderful community!
Y'all have a fantastic day!
After a day of checking my emails and bank statements to work out why a stray package containing perfume had landed at my doorstep and swearing blind that I was sure I hadn't ordered it and not being able to open it until the mystery was resolved I am now wearing Moschino Couture. My lovely Mum had remembered I'd complimented it on her but couldn't remember what it was at the time. She'd later tracked me down a bottle, but had such an exciting weekend she forgot to tell me to expect it!
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.

Have a great new day ,everyone !

Belated Happy Birthday, Evangeline!
Today I'm in FM Une Rose again, but this time I'm trying to slow down the development by getting more of it on clothing.
I've been getting the "server is busy, try again later" message over and over today. I hope these problems are resolved soon....
I had trouble getting on last night as well. I'm wearing Prada Infusion d'Iris today for a tea party with a dear former co-worker.
