    Happy Birthday, DomPerrier!

    Amazingly diverse choices in fragrances today. I'm wearing Samsara for it's relaxing sandalwood. Rough weekend at work is finally done and I narrowly escaped having to go in today

    Happy Birthday Sophi and Domperrier!



    I just stopped by to say "hi" and see what everybody is smelling like. As a Basenoter said last week, I’m wearing “Just Me” by me. I can’t wear fragrance right now, even the smell of handsoap bothers me. I’ve had a headache for the past couple of days that responds to no over the counter medication whatsoever. Grrr…send my poor head some get well wishes, y’all.

    Happy Birthday, Domperrier and Sophi!

    I"m wearing Chergui. That means I'm officially getting into an autumn state of mind --though it is still mighty hot here.

    Definately true and great advice for all of us!

    Mitsouko EDT for a second day.
    I always appreciated the artistry and history of M but never felt it was as "right" on me as other Guerlain's. Yesterday the peachy spices notes hit me and it was ....delicious. Must continue the exploration today.

    Thanks again, everybody!

    Your cakes & champagne (& chocolates) are so lovely, they make me full just looking at them!

    The best birthday ever!

    And in the spirit of Therese's advice, I went out & bid for a huge 6.75" baccarat Urn of C Dior's Miss Dior...
    to drink just in case I feel suicidal.....(just kidding)

    ...& got it!

    Hahahah....I will definitely consider loaning that to you, if you so desire lol

    A bigger Dior fan never have I seen!

    The strange thing is: there it was, sitting around with NO BIDS for 5 days, and I needed the entire time to think, consider & ruminate over whether to go for it.

    The starting bid was $100 and that was what gave me pause, especially since I love bidding for things that start at $9.99.
    However, the auction ended in the dead of night in my timezone, so after some research & getting a reply from the seller saying that the dark reddish juice still smelt nice, I keyed in the starting bid of $100.

    Not prepared nor awake to engage in a bidding war with anyone!

    And when I woke up just before seven am[BEFORE my perfumadventure, I usually woke up just before nine], there it was in my 'Won' list!

    Anyone smells a rat?

    Btw, that Won list is getting worryingly long, with a vintage bottle of Mitsouko extrait & a vintage bottle of L'Heure Bleue extrait(half full) joining a rosebud amphore of Shalimar in conspiring to whittle down my hard-earned cash.

    A bit of PTSD (post-traumatic Shopping disorder) here...

    domperrier, what is strange about winning at the opening bid? Why do you smell a rat?
    It means no one else bid, or, if there was another bid, that maybe someone else bid the same as you (but later than you, so your earlier bid would win it.)

    Anyway, Hapy Birthday!

    I've been in C&E Lily of the Valley today.

    If you don't mind me asking, what ethnic group is the waiter from?

    And was your hubby with you when you felt those urges?

    Happy Birthday domperrier and belated (?) good wishes to Sophi! I feel like I missed a whole lot this weekend!

    Lilybelle, I hope your head feels better. I also woke with the oddest headache, and I've only recently shaken it...sigh.

    As the day turns into night here, I have 3 samples on various parts from my adventures at the mall. I didn't really set out to buy anything, but found 2 fabulous pairs of shoes, plus a couple of clothing items (Sale! Woo-hoo!). And you know that funny headache? It disappeared while I was shoe shopping. Anyhow, I digress.

    Upper left arm - JM English Pear and Freesia. Hey, top notes are similar to the d/c'd Une Fleur de Chanel! At least, that's how it hits me. Pretty! Seems not to last too long, though....

    Left forearm-wrist - Chloe Capucine. Lovely SA at Nordies raved about it. Well, I am not the biggest fan of the topnotes - kinda similar to Dior's Escale a Portofino. But you know - she's right - it's very unusual...because it dries down to a really pretty rose. Weird! Citrusy and green in the top, then a warmer rose in the heart. And me, the sucker for rose fragrances...

    Right forearm - Ninfeo Mio. You know, I do like the top, b/c it IS very similar to Hadrien (of which I am a fan). But there's something in here that smells very foody (like Thai food)? Coconut and lime leaves?

    No one had the new Gucci yet...and finally, I did sniff the Clive Christian C on the paper strip at NM. I think my shopping buddy was highly repelled (repulsed?), b/c she threw away the paper strip before the scent had finished evolving.

    OK, post-shower, I tried on a bit of my Une Fleur decant. I must be losing my mind, b/c it's slightly similar to the JM I tried today, but not as close as I'd thought. Duh. The JM does remind me of a Chanel, and now it'll bug me until I figure out which one.
