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.

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.

I'm streamlining my collection http://community.basenotes.net/showt...29#post1219729
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!

Post pilates and shower and in for the evening, I'm now in a rather lavish amount of L'Arte di Gucci.
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
Switched to Mitsouko for the evening.
"I love that a scent can make memories come alive."
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
*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...
