    Good morning!

    I tried to find out what we had to wear for synchronised Friday last night, but Basenotes was down...

    So I am wearing Kenzo Amour, it is very nice this cool autumn morning.

    Hi all! I couldn't get to Basenotes yesterday, very sad because I was testing Tauer's Une Rose Vermeille. It's very, very fruity, but it isn't sweet; it's a green raspberry note. The rose didn't come through very strongly on me, unfortunately, so I didn't adore it. The base is gorgeous, though; vanilla, sandalwood, tonka bean, with the raspberry overlaying it. I'd cautiously rate it at 3.5 stars, but will need another test to be sure.

    As there's no way I'll ever be caught in a Mugler (I'm sorry, they just don't work for me!), today I'm testing Tauer's other newbie, Eau d'Epices. I'm disappointed, frankly. Of course, it's too soon in the day to be sure, but so far it's moderately warm and spicy and ... that's it. I think it might work in warmer autumn weather when the sun's shining, and I'm sure it will sing in the summer, but when it's 12 degrees outside? No and nope. I drove by the beach this morning and the North Sea was terrifically grey and violent and unsettled; I'm kind of wishing I'd worn Sel Marin instead of Eau d'Epices' spicy warmth. Just the wrong choice, I think.

    Have a good day, everybody!

    Thought I agree with mel_lou about being caught in a TM fragrance, until yesterday (same as an AT fragrance, regretfully).

    TM A*Men again.

    Have a nice day and a beautiful weekend.

    Thanks for the welcome Jon Rodgers. My husband and son are massive Leeds fans, although missing out on the game against Blades tomorrow, much to their disappointment!

    Hello, everyone! So glad to be able to access the site again!

    I was unwittingly in sync a day early as I just happened to wear Thierry Mugler Innocent yesterday. Continuing to be in sync today with B*Men.

    Happy Friday, all!

    Ducky, that's a copied pic of someone else's rare amphora....I can't afford $500 for one of those :P

    Mine is a little too vintage...a very strong green note. But not unpleasant.

    I mised Basenotes! Glad it's back.

    Yesterday's scent was Highland Lilac of Rochester and today's will be more of the same note: Mary Chess White Lilac.

    Mom only managed to have broth yesterday; I hope today she'll be able to take a bit more food. It's just a stomach virus but these things are hard on the elderly.

    Hahah...Who asked eBay to give such scant offerings from your pet fashion house? :P

    Even when there's something worthwhile buying, it's so overpriced & the competition is so intense I give up eventually.


    Either that, or it's affordable modern reformulated drivel.


    That day, I sniffed Miss Dior Cherie & almost died from nausea! The artificial sweetness was overpowering...

    But Guerlain....ahhh...everything I smell from Guerlain so far is bewitching and mysterious....

    Except perhaps Vol de Nuit, which resembles petrol too closely for my liking.

    Betrayal is only a matter of time, dear lol

    I'm wearing Etro Messe de Minuit today, if I feel up to it I will wear the tiniest dab of Angel tonight. They layer quite well, by the way, if you can apply Angel carefully enough not to completely wipe out MdM - it's one hell of a morbid, scary combination, but I like it.

    Mugler Cologne is really nice! Crisp, clean musk, but still interesting and rather unique. If you like heady florientals, Alien is worth a shot, and the new one, Womanity, has been fairly well received, from what I've seen - I haven't smelled it yet.
