    Even though I'm tired, I always wake up so early in my last trimester. Aren't hormones fantastic? :-)

    Going apple picking with the family today so I'll wear Brandy, what else?! Think I'll spritz DH with Kristiansand NY. I'll let our little toddler be scentless ;-)

    Hello everyone! Lovethescents what a great idea to wear Brandy for apple
    picking. Hope the final trimester is not too tiresome for you.

    Petra Ichor which sample do you prefer? I think out of those four
    I would pick Paestum Rose, although Lady Vengeance would be a close second.

    I have just finished yet another session of gardening and, after my bath, I have
    applied Hypnotic Poison Body Lotion and the Elixir ready to go out for a meal
    tonight.

    Guerlain's Samsara Parfum. Guerlain explains the Hindu name in an advertisement stating that "Samsara is an invitation to serenity and harmony with oneself and the world", which strictly speaking is a misconception because it's in fact liberation from saṃsāra that is considered serene in Hinduism, not saṃsāra itself. That said, Samsara's symmetric arrangement and immaculate materials exude a tranquil fullness, quite baroque and true to its motto. I'm off to Paris and the guerlinade temple tomorrow!

    Wow. The Bois des Îles EDT from the Les Exclusifs lasted 6 1/2 hrs on my skin even though some parfums vanish within the same timeframe.

    Not bad...

    domperrier - try to get your hands on some of the vintage parfum, without question the longest-lasting fragrance I have. I can detect the basenotes a full twelve or thirteen hours later, and that's really saying something as nothing ever seems to live up to its potential on me. (I actually wear the parfum and the edt together for the most sublime effect!)

    And Mr. G, regarding Samsara, I love your description...

    OOH! And I'm doing yard work (to gather grass clippings for composting 3000 lbs. of nonviable cottonseed for soil enrichment) and all jealous.

    I'm in Scent C today (well, was before I went out and sweated it off, and replaced it with a fine coating of Eau de Cut Grass) from the Basenotes Fragrance Project... and am not tellin' what it smells like.

    I smell sooooo beautiful in Dior Lily. Thank you again, Brielle.

    Happy day, Whiffman. I bet RHM smells great!

    I jumped through every kind of hoop this week, meeting a variety of demands. That warrants a weekend of kicking back and smelling the flowers.

    Cologne Pour le Matin by Maison Francis Kurkdjian (first time from a sample - thanks Buzzlepuff!)



    This smells exactly as I expected it to: soapy, fresh and yet also a bit like a Febreze or hand-wipe scent. Not a bad thing, but a familiar olfactory association.


    Happy Birthday Mr. Morris!

    Quarry, love the pictures - especially of the daschund in the meadow. He looks as though he is smelling something sublime.

    I am wearing Elements of Surprise, provided to me in a sample by the kind and lovely Ubuandibeme. This is a very nice light lemon, tea and jasmine scent, and she must have the next-to-last bottle on earth, because I can find it on only one site. Luckily my sample was generous enough that I can smell like this whenever I want for a while. Thanks, sweetie!

    with sweet wood,
    kindles a fire
    on this gray day.

    a tapestry is woven
    in dense colors
    and calm repose.

    Topnotes; Lavender, clary sage, aldehydes
