    Good Evening


    Trussardi Fresh is a sensual yet subtle floral fragrance for women, which stays very close to the skin. This intimate composition opens with notes of violet leaves, apple, pink pepper and lemon. The heart is a floral bouquet of lily-of-the-valley, rose and jasmine. The base is soft, sensuous and woody, composed of rosewood, cedar, patchouli and mosses.

    My Scent of the Evening is a fresh application of

    Etra Etro layered with two dabs of Etra Patchouly,

    as described by tdem upthread. I was a bit alarmed at first, but it is beginning to settle beautifully. I can't get enough of this.

    Chanel No. 22 from a sample from a kind Basenoter. This is going to be my next full bottle purchase. I was also considering Beige, which I love. But No. 22 is "the one", the Chanel for me. It intoxicates me.

    Today I was in the mood for something totally new. So... I layered Michael Storer Monk with J. Peterman's E.M. Ca' d'Oro and a few spritzes of Prada Infusion d'Iris. It was really, really nice, and reminded me of New Orleans in its intensity, its longevity, and its slight "dirtiness."

    So for Wednesday I was at work as a (slightly overperfumed) sexy THANG thankyouverymuch!

    This worked wonders on my self-esteem and general MOXIE, by the way.

    Your day will come. I don't think there'll be much relaxing until it is over. And DH had a "wonderful" idea: why not expand the rehearsal dinner to include lots more people and have it at the house! Brilliant, huh? I am dying to cook a huge dinner and run back and forth to the kitchen and clean up til midnight the day before the wedding...no way! We had a little chat and I refused. Rehearsal dinner will not be Chez Z.

    Ninfeo Mio is drying down to smell like lecithin tablets, which I smelled once many, many years ago, but they were distinct and memorable, and that's what I smell like.

    Good for you Zibeline! Boundaries! It's all about boundaries. (unless of course you LIKE parties that YOU cater... and I'm guessing the answer to that is a resounding NOOOOOOOO!!!!! and lots of screams.)

    Evangeline, I love Diabolo Rose as well!

    Quarry, I liked Ninfeo Mio until it dried down to "Eau de Yankee Candle Store"!


    My order of three 15 ml splashes from Demeter arrived today and I'm trying out all three on skin.

    Pineapple is totally realistic and yummy; I'm going to try layering it with something citrusy.

    Dandelion is deliciously green and smells like lying in the grass in the sun. Very nice!

    • "Demeter Naturals" 100% Natural Lilac EdT (http://www.demeterfragrance.com/Prod...?ProductID=898) smells like anything but lilac. I've had it on nearly two hours and I do not get even a whiff of lilac. Early on, I got some floral notes (jasmine?), then (briefly) cloves, and now it reminds me somewhat of Rose Kashmirie-- it is also reminding me of the smell of original Chapstick. There is a creaminess to it that doesn't sit well with me, but others may like it.
    edit: After 3 hours, the creaminess subsided and I got a bit of ?night-flowering jasmine?

    But if you are looking for lilac, the also-available Demeter (not 100% natural) Lilac cologne (http://www.demeterfragrance.com/Prod...ProductID=1188) is quite a good lilac soliflore. (Not the best one, IMO-- that would be Highland Lilac of Rochester.) It's linear and a little powdery but very pleasant, wearable and long lasting for a Demeter.

    Wow! I'm very late here today. My SotD is Guerlain Derby, thanks to Primrose who kindly shared a sample.

    This is a beautiful fragrance, smooth and subtly blended. I get sweet woods, moss, and a killer vetiver ending. Wow.
