    I'm liberally sprayed with the extremely realistic Pineapple by Demeter.

    This is a bright and happy smell, though short-lived as most of the Demeters are (so there isn't really time to get tired of smelling like a pineapple.)

    30 Roses, you smell wonderful! I love the scent of pineapple.

    Happy Birthday to Coco Chanel! What path would modernism in fashion and fragrance have taken without her influence? Hmm...I'll have to think about it.

    Wow, almost wore No. 19 today, not even remembering it was Ms. Chanel's birthday! I went instead with No. 5 Eau Premiere.

    OMG - my fiancé is such a RAT!!

    It seems he wanted to teach me a lesson about my enthusiastic, gleeful presumption regarding a certain perfume I've been wanting for a while, Une Rose. We both love it and he's even asked about it lately; didn't I still like it and was I going to be getting it soon, and why am I messing with all these other rose perfumes when I've found the best one, etc, etc. So you see my side, right? Naturally, I figured I'd be getting it for my birthday, which was Tuesday.

    Well, I should have kept my yap shut but I couldn't help myself. I kept talking and talking about it and even reading 30 Roses' posts about it to him "Oh, she's wearing it again today! Lucky girl - I bet she smells divine! I can't wait to wear mine...we'll be scent-twins, tee hee hee!" I'm such a child when it comes to birthdays and presents. Anyway, I certainly would have reported to you that I was wearing Une Rose yesterday morning had I actually received it for my birthday, but clearly I did not! Pooh! It took extraordinary effort to refrain from asking where the rest of my present was when given beautiful flowers and chocolates, but I managed. As far as he could see I was thrilled and not disappointed in the least...but I was disappointed, and also a bit confused. Had he forgotten? Am I actually not getting Une Rose for my birthday?? How can this be???

    Cut to a couple of hours ago - he called from work and asked me if I would take a couple of shirts to the cleaners (which was an odd request since I go once a week and he never pays any attention to this stuff, anyway...) and what do you think I found underneath these shirts but a beautifully wrapped present with my name on it, and my very own bottle of Une Rose inside - Yaaahoooooo!!! He was going to give it to me last night figuring that one day late was lesson enough, but he forgot! So rather than make me wait until tonight, he let me off the hook and lead me right to it! He's still a rat to be sure, but he's just such a cute, sweet and generous rat!

    My scent of the afternoon is Frederic Malle's dazzling, intoxicating Une Rose! Yay!

    Scent of the Evening

    Hypnotic Poison

    Eau de Toilette layered with the Elixir




    It's been, what? Three months since I've been in this beauty last.
    Way too long, that's for sure. The second I sprayed myself with
    this masterpiece, I instantly forgot all other so-called favourites
    of mine. Nothing, and I do mean nothing, can compare to this!

    I wanna eat myself up when I'm in this confidence booster!

    Wearing Hermes, Un Jardin Sur le Nil

    You folks are always so instructive. I did not know it was Ms Chanel's B-day. This evening, when Mr Ellena's creation has worn off, I will splash on some precious No 19 from a vinatge mini.

    Looking forward to Caron Syncho Day tomorrow, too.

    Yay, Evangeline! We shall be scent twins indeed!



    Oh, and I did find it helped slow the progression (keeping the rose fresher) if I sprayed it not on skin but on my, er, bra.

    Evangeline's hubby is a real (sly!) sweetie, isn't he? Enjoy the Une Rose! (Such a beauty!)

    SOTD: Bandit EDP


    Is it a little heavy for August? Oh heck, it's FINE. I totally spaced out on Chanel No. 19 (possibly my favorite!) and today. Dang!

    BTW, BayKAT's review of Bandit is Excellent, with a capital E. I love these stories that you all share....

    I started today in Samsara... touched up this afternoon with Le 3me Homme, and am now in Terre d'Hermes... I almost chose Chanel No. 19 and now I know why I thought of it. (as if I know what day it is, normally)...

    Oh, Quarry... what an INTERESTING tour! You'll have to post piccies or something!

    Off to NYC tomorrow, this time to Madame Tussaud's. My daughter has never seen a wax museum-- should be fun.

    Then, of course, some sniffing at the places we missed on our last trip. Aedes, C. O. Bigelow, Enfleurage, perhaps MiN, depending on the time available.

    Although I didn't know today was Mme. Coco's birthday, I still celebrated with Coco Mademoiselle. I needed a scent that made me feel confident for my first day in my new job. Besides, I probably should break in my new workmates slowly and carefully to all the new scents they're going to be experiencing...

    Hello!!!
    I am glad to be here. These last few days I've had a very hard time trying to log-in here. I am not sure if it is the site or my computer. Oh well. Today I wore Poiver S____ by Hermes. I liked it but it is so light. Yesterday I wore 24 Faubourg (very nice), and the day before Osmanthus Interdite (lovely!).

    Best wishes for a very relaxing and fun weekend!

    Me too. If any of you need a new addiction, please come join us. It's really really fun!

    Evangeline, what a great gift! I think Une Rose is the best, and I'd be thrilled if my husband surprised me with a bottle!

    My Thursday SotD was Cote d'Amour.
