Good morning I'm in Tam Dao today.
I had no choice! Was opening packages today, and these two just got onto my fingers somehow.
So I just rubbed the affected parts onto my wrists and said "Hallelujah!"
Today is one of those days where your perfume chooses you and not the other way around!
Good morning I'm in Tam Dao today.

EAU DES ÎLES
( Original version )
Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
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..."

Donna Karan Chaos, old bottle of the original 1996 version. I've been extremely lucky and scored another older, full bottle at a fleamarket in addition to the half-full one I bought in the late 90's, so I should really wear this one more.

ELdO Fat Electrician is becoming my new best friend. For everybody enjoying vetiver note -- a must, at least to try.
Twolf - I do like Fat Electrician too! Silly name...
Today I'm in Philtre d'Amour - from a sample.
Good morning, everyone.
Couldn't decide what to wear today. It's cool now, but will be near 90 this afternoon.
Settled on L'Artisan Premier Figuier.

Castelbajac, smelling like french primary school for a day herding student teachers.
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
I’m trying my latest ebay purchase, Emeraude pdt, which arrived yesterday…
(This pic is from the Muse in Wooden Shoes blog review here...http://museinwoodenshoes.wordpress.c...coty-emeraude/, my bottle looks just like it)
I think it’s from the 70s, and oh my! It’s gorgeous! At first I thought it was shot, but it isn't - you have to wait 20 minutes or so for the beauty to appear. And then it just keeps getting good.
Hello everyone -
I'm in a luxurious cloud of sandalwood, thanks to a bit of Bois des Iles vintage parfum plus a spritz of the current edt - the result is just unbelievably beautiful.
Y'all have a wonderful day!
Homage by Amouage
Good Morning All My SOTD is Chanel's 'COCO MADEMOSEILLE'

Wow, everyone is smelling wonderful today !
Carrying on with Ubar from my late night party with Insomnia.
SotD - Dioressence
SotE - Bal à Versailles
BaV is a study in lush decadence and dirty unwashed undies...
Doing further interrogation of Basenotes Scent A. There is much I'd choose to amend, but it is tolerable.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
I'm wearing Tauer Un rose chyprée on one wrist and Incense rosé on the other, trying to decide which one I should order first. I should get both ASAP, really.
Needed leather today. Chanel Cuir de Russie on one wrist and Dzing! on the other.

"Three essentials for a good life: Someone to love, somewhere to go, and something to look forward to."
I'm still rocking Andy Tauer's Un Rose Chypree, which I bought on Friday. Loving it - very rich and deep, on me not a lot of rose but a thick and sensuous oakmoss base that just says 'warm, loved, skin' to me. Like it sooooo much.

Hi Lisa, you and oakmoss are friends? ;-)
How are you, btw?
Today I'm in a citrus I can only wear when the weather isn't very hot and humid, because of the black currant note: The Thymes Limón.
Notes: Lemon, lime, pomelo, kumquat, mandarin leaf, black currant, freesia and jasmine.
Wow, ya'll smell magnificent today!
I grabbed some Vetiver pour Elle on the way out the door this morning.
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
Eau Premiere again today, but I need to decant some of this because it fades too fast for all day wear. I want to start over again!
Just finished reseeding the yard, using very drought resistant stuff this year. Will shower up and wear Narcisse Noir to a play tonight, but maybe Gap Grass would be more optimistic?
I think I have to try the Tauer Rose Chypree! And who would have thought about layering Bal a Versailles with No. 22? Interesting!
MimiG - Hope you can kick the insomnia soon. Shucks, I have nights like that, and the next day is just so loooooong. (((M)))
SOTD: L'Eau d'Hiver
Have a great day, all!
Marilyn Miglin Goddess
Wall Street by Bond No.9
Post pilates and shower and in for the evening, I'm now in a rather lavish amount of L'Arte di Gucci.
Switched to Mitsouko for the evening.
TM Alien oil - strong stuff (my dentist noticed and complimented on it)!
Have a good rest of the day, all.
For sale: JL Scherrer parfum (reduced price) and more!

I'm wearing L de Lolita Lempicka today. mmmmm yummy!
Spent the day trying out Scent A from the Basenotes Fragrance Project. Won't put any spoilers here, as I'm probably wrong about my guesses as to what it is anyway. (bad, bad allergies! Go away!)
Lilybelle... that vintage Emeraude (I've got the same one I think) IS so nice. Just as I remember it.

Rush by Gucci pour homme.
YSL Cinema today, trying to decide what the SotE is going to be. Maybe Armani Sensi or Bulgari Omnia? Something warm, 'cause I'm tired.
If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.
Bwah dez Eel extrait for sweetest dreams. Of exotic islands, I s'pose.
Chanel No. 19 EDT
Jealous of Twolf's BdI extrait. I'm in Lolita Lempicka for the evening after some tennis.
I'm test-driving more potential meet-up purchases. Sadly, the Eau de Sisley 1 I enjoyed on paper is jus a big pile of boring on my skin.
But I'm still holding out that 2 or 3 will be better...
Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??
Passage d'Enfer for me today
I ended up wearing Norell cologne and BOY does this baby have longevity ! seven hours and counting applied around 4 or 5 pm(we did inventory at work this evening )and it is still going .Is Norell related to the energizer bunny?
I could have sworn I posted earlier- doing so now before thread gets locked.
SOTD No 5 Eau Premiere
A Scent Rescuer
Every great perfume deserves a good home
*squeals with excitement*
After a long day, I arrive at my home to find...my package from the Posh Peasant waiting for me! Eek! Earlier tonight, I had Coromandel on the left side and 31 Rue Cambon on the right. Post-shower, I am now happily sampling (just) the 31 Rue Cambon.
Nighty night, dear BNers...
