    Some of the last drops from my bottle of Mandragore.... SNIFF! I can't bring myself to repurchase until I am back from New York (because I want to have some spending money there ).

    Everyone smells absolutely yummy today!

    I didn't get my fragrance on until just now. Had to hold off b/c of my yearly mammo this morning. Don't know WHY scent on my wrists would skew a mammo test, but...

    Now I am totally enjoying SL La Myrrhe, from a decant here at work.

    Having scrubbed off the awful non-lilac on my wrist, I've now sprayed myself liberally with the sample of SMN Mughetto I brought back from Aedes.

    I'm hoping that the weird urinous drydown I smelled 4 hours after I sprayed it on my arm at Aedes was a fluke.

    Will update this post with my conclusions later-- is this bottle-worthy?

    Edit: Boring.

    Blame the grey cloudy weather. I wanted to wear my new Halston Man sample. But then I was getting dressed and I glanced over at my VdN bottle and the melancholy, romantic feeling of the scent made me ache to wear it - so I did.

    I'm glad I did.

    Evening scent:Comme des Garcons incense series :Jaislmer


    Jaisalmer is Hinduism, named after the ancient Indian city of Jaisalmer, situated in the desert, north-western part of India, in Rajasthan. Jaisalmer means ‘Golden City’ and in ancient times it was placed on the route between India and Egypt. Indian traders were transporting ebony to Egypt, and therefore it is one of the main notes in this fragrance. Red hot pepper is mixed with aromatic warm cinnamon and cardamom, incense is here spicy, woodsy and earthy.

    The main notes are cardamom, incense, cinnamon, amber, benzoin, red hot chilly pepper, Guaiac wood and ebony.

    So here I am two days from the wedding and ONE day from "Meet the In-Laws" at the "rehearsal dinner". I am second guessing myself on everything today! Maybe I should call a casting service in NYC and hire a dazzling haute couture mommy to be my stand in...I'll go to the shore instead. Sadly, I have conjured up someone like Catherine Deneuve as my daughter's MIL to be. I know this is not true, but anxiety brings out my capacity for catastrophising.

    I haven't decided on a perfume. Naturally, I am behaving as if that is a truly momentous decision. I thought LHB for Friday, Sa Maj la Rose for the wedding, and for the brunch on Sunday (where we bid a fond farewell to everyone then go home and crash) I was thinking either Douce Amere or Vol de Nuit. But then I thought Zibeline X3 days. Still no decision.

    Today I am wearing Le Dix and thinking, hmm that might be nice. Then I thought "wear something vintage like My Sin". It is one of the few things I have to decide as everything else is written in stone, so to speak.

    Habanita today, to help me get through work, haven't chosen a SoTE yet. Probably something equally strong...perhaps...hmm...yes... Anthracite!

    My efforts to clear out my vanity have been redirected due to these cravings I've had for the past couple of days. I just had to smell my Aromatics Elixir. My co-worker said I smell good : )

    Burberry The Beat for me today - it sparkles. It was lovely and cool this morning, so I thought this might be a good choice, and it was! Why don't I wear this more often? I know this is supposed to be marketed to a "younger" crowd, but who cares? I like it.

    And Petruccijc, I think I might speak for many of us (or maybe only for myself) when I say, "Yum."

    SOTE was (from a newly purchase mini) Weil de Weil Parfum de Toilette.

    Great gosh almighty, this scent is fabulous. Zibeline while you are dealing with the wedding chaos, if your ears burn, it's because I'm sending love across the universe for turning me on to this classic. Instant love....and like other of my instant loves, it's discontinued.
    Cue music from Gone With The Wind: Knit waves the mini over head and proclaims "As God is my witness I will seek out and buy a larger bottle this very night, and never be Weil-less again!" ...The End
