No Givenchy for me so I'm wearing Lust by Gorilla Perfume.
Morning y'all, today we are doing one of my fave houses - Givenchy!
I'll start with some vintage Ysatis.
No Givenchy for me so I'm wearing Lust by Gorilla Perfume.

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..."

Sorry to break the Givenchy trend, but its Djedi for me today... in celebration of my mother's 61st!
SotD already applied so Givenchy this evening I think.
No Givenchy here... But Guerlain's Djedi, reissued Parfum. Taken as a women's perfume, it's Guerlain's most unusual, being totally unsweetened and based largely on vetiver. The earthy-smoky-dry-smelling essential oil from vetiver grass root is often perceived as masculine, but it's used as a fixative and harmonizer in almost half of all feminine perfumes, playing its part unnoticed as backing drummer behind the key notes (which is why many people doesn't know what vetiver really smells like). Djedi is the negative image: Here, vetiver is the predominant ingredient, the one highlighted, and that to an extent of rawness far from matched in Jean-Paul Guerlain's manful Vetiver.
Good morning! My SOTD is Givenchy Gentleman (vintage) - for Synchronized Friday.
Top notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Rose, Honey
Middle notes: Patchouli, Jasmine, Cedar, Orris
Base notes: Amber, Vetiver, Patchouli, Leather

Givenchy III for me.
Have a good day everybody!
Still with a whiff of yesterday's Opium, which you all know is a real clinger even after a shower, I applied a couple of sprays of ANGE AU DEMON this morning. I should have been sensible and applied it to my arms rather than my neck, as the rampaging top notes hit me like a rock at 6 o'clock this morning. I scrubbed within minutes.
I wasn't in the mood for it. The house of Givenchy is not really me, lovely though it is for many others. Had it not been Givenchy Friday on BN I would never had given it a thought. My store sample of Ange au demon was the only Givenchy I could find in my wardrobe apart from old bottles of Ysatis and Givenchy Gentleman. I didn't fancy either of those for today.
However, I now smell subtly gorgeous with the unintentional but gentle aftershock of the last two days : Opium, more more Opium, and Ange au Demon.
Enjoy the weekend ahead.
Reformulation without information is fraud. Call the police.
I no longer do Givenchy. So Caron Fleurs de Rocaille classic.
Very Irresistible Givenchy

I haven't found loves among the Givenchy-s yet. So instead of a full wear I am joining the Givenchy Friday by testing on one wrist Ange ou Demon and on the other Ange ou Demon Eau Tendre. They are not for me. Not really bad, but they say nothing, just sweeten my skin a bit.
My Givenchy of the day is Le De.
I am wearing Ange ou Demon for today's Synchronized Givenchy Day. I'm sorry it doesn't work for some of you, this is a highly complimented fragrance for me.
Top Notes: White thyme, Mandarin from Calabria and Essence of Saffron.
Middle Notes: Maxillaria orchid, Lily, Ylang ylang.
Base Notes: Tonka bean, Vanilla, Rosewood, Oak wood absolute.
On me, the standout notes are the saffron, tonka bean, and rosewood. The floral notes are fairly subtle, which is a good thing for me.
Happy Friday, everyone!
Like Donna, I do not do Givenchy either. Not any longer.
Solange Stoned -- 2nd time this week. No particular reason -- TGIF and because I can, perhaps?
Today I'm wearing Fleur d'Interdit by Givenchy. Happy Friday everyone!

"There are people of spirit and there are people of passion but much less common that one might think. Rarer still are the people of passion and spirit. But rarest of all is a passionate spirit."
-- Martin Buber
L'Interdit original version for me. But will probably change into something else for "meet the in-laws dinner" tonight. I am very anxious. Weil de Weil, Zibeline, LTBL, Detchema? My closet is an alphabet of choices over something that will probably only matter to me. Ok, definitely only matter to me...unless I freak out and wear Yatagan!
Day 7 of my personal 21 day sample challenge and I'm wearing the very pretty Miss Dior Cherie. I shall break out my Le De sample tomorrow.
Seems I forgot today was Friday when selecting my fragrance, but any remorse would be completely insincere since I'm happy as a clam on my luscious purple cloud of Iris Ganache.
Y'all have a fantastic day!
Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

No Guerlain for me, so wearing my protective suit of Castelbajac!

Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
I love this scent it's one of my all-time favorites.
PG Cadjmere today! And G does not stand for Givenchy as I have none. But like Miss E, I could not be happier with my choice. This is one of my birthday purchases, and I couldn't wait for cooler weather to dig into it.
