    Happy birthday Shadesofblue!

    Happy Friday to all of us!

    I have to tell you that for the first time in my life, I have been having dreams about perfume. Just one perfume, Hermes Eau Claire des Merveilles. It's a reoccurring dream in that its always about ECdM, however the story is different each time, alternating between two themes.
    In one version, I walk into a perfume store looking for ECdM and don't find it. I search the shelves and then ask the SA if they carry it. I am told she didn’t know it exists. I walk out of the store and the dream is over. In the other version, I walk into a "non-perfume" store and I’m joyfully surprised to see it on the counter or a shelf. I run up to the bottle, which is always the same, but it is NOT the bottle Hermes uses. I can't quite make out the design, and I peer at it…a tall, rectangular and multi-faceted bottle. I always wonder why it’s not a(n) Hermes design. In the end, I don’t buy it, because the store has priced it at $500USD !!! So, I leave the store as well as the dream at that point.

    It would appear that I’m wrestling with some seriously ambivalent feelings toward buying this fragrance. I find it quite charming and I’m wearing it today (from a sample). Perhaps I’ll soon decide if I need to get me a bottle of it!

    Happy Birthday, Shades of Bleu!

    It's too nice a day for me to spend it chained to a celebuscent. I'm experimenting with Imogen Rose and Tuca Tuca this morning, and plan on wearing vintage Je Reviens for the rest of the day

    Happy birthday, Shades! I hope you have a wonderful day.


    Scent twins with Lilybelle in Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely. My daughter gave me her tube of the body lotion (she's since moved on to Stella) so I smoothed some on this morning. It's very nice, gentler and softer than the juice which went a bit sharp on me when I tried it.

    Happy Friday to all!

    Hope you rock on your Acqua di Gioia presentation Dimmy! I wish i had a sample of this one, since i love mint, sugar, and discovered recently that i quite like jasmin when it`s not donne in an indolic way.

    My scent of today is boucheron initial edp. I`m curious because today Initial is soft on me, and I gave generous sprays of this one. On me Initial seems like a pre-modern chypre. What i detect is lots of salty patchouly, creamy musk, honey, roses, an a bit of almond that gives me a plastic impression at the top notes. I love the creamy honey patchouly of Initial on my skin...

    Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes! Love those bleu cakes and balloons too!

    No celeb scent for me today ... I'm in full-on Angel! I'm wearing the body oil, the bluish shimmer body powder with spritz of EDP on top. No worries, I'm not working today. The only one smelling my Angel saturated self is myself!

    No celebuscent for me, either, just another day enjoying an old favorite!

    The funny thing is that for about half a day, I thought my tastes were changing as this suddenly felt waaaay too sweet. I'm over it, though.

    Roberto, you romantic! ♥ (I love that pic!)

    Interesting Scent Synch choices so far today.

    Ubu, I think gifting a celebuscent definitely counts.

    Iím wearing SJP Lovely this morning.


    Off to check out Sorceryofscentís blog on Acqua di Gioia. I love Acqua di Gio for women. I donít know the menís version, although Iím sure I must have smelled it on someone at some point.

    Thanks lilybelle Do you know the history of that pic ?
    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..."

    I'm not sure if I (my 'fume) was too strong. Oops. Well, at least I'm working in my office now, far from delicate noses (is it really THAT strong? hmmm)

    Have spent the day in Kate Moss Vintage from a tester at my local shop.
    It just came out on me like a general vanilla without any real character, but after all its a models fragrance.

    Hello,

    This is my first post (don't know much ).

    My only celebrity scent is a sample of Sinner by Kat von D, so that's what I'm wearing.

    Another site listed the notes as orange blossom, mandarin, plum, jasmine, white-flower bouquet, cinnamon, vetiver, patchouli, woods, creamy vanilla, musk.

    Looking forward to seeing what everyone wears tomorrow.
