    tdem1961: thanks very much for the link. I couldn't find it and had forgotten which site held that list. Noir de Noir is one of the latest created this year, I think, so may not be listed everywhere yet. You'd think the Tom Ford site would add such info to their Private Blend descriptions, but no.

    I suspect the answer may be buried in a post here in BN. I'll keep trying.

    knit_at_nite,
    I agree. We must hear about the stradivari. Love the bottle and it looks somehow familiar.

    I am not putting on any scent this am, since I plan to hit a shop or two and try fragrance. Anyone have suggestions? (Forget anything niche, we have NONE of them here.) Are there any masculines that work well for women and are outstanding? I have neglected the Pour Homme fragrances in my collection so far.

    Have a great Monday, y'all.

    Starting my grey monday in Mystere by Rochas. This one never fails to impress me with its herbal richness and complex base.

    Was hoping to plant another 300 daffodils today, but they haven't arrived and it's raining again. Maybe tomorrow

    JC De Castelbajac AW 2009

    Feeling a bit 'quirky' today and Castelbajac always seems to work for that (as would that pink muppet hat).
    Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.

    Hey, I'd love to sit with the whole fine-smelling bunch of you!

    Sestra, my pleasure -- and good news: I poked around some more and found Noir de Noir credited to Jacques Cavallier (in collaboration with Harry Fremont.)

    I LOVE finding out these things!

    Monday Howdies!

    Starting the week in Les Maitresses de Louis XIV. A lovely muguet.

    Went to bed last night in a dab of Sarrasins.

    SotE is Samsara layered with Tam Dao. Feels perfect for the cold and dark autumn evening.

    Sestra, I agree with you about "floralcy"...can't stand it! Ad copy writers just make up words, floralcy isn't in the dictionary, so it's meaning is vague.

    News first: my daughter's color guard (of just 8 girls) won first place in stiff competition this weekend. We are tremendously proud of her, she's insisted on performing, despite having a cold.
    My husband will be home soon for a visit. Yeah!!!
    My sister is coming to visit on the 20th.
    I will be having another kidney stone surgery next week..."shrapnel" from the big rock they removed in March. Out patient...no biggie compared to the last one. Still, these little buggers are pretty painful.

    To quote my brother, I'm "a mess!" BUT...I am a fragrant mess in Chanel #5 edt.

    I'm giving Diptyque Eau Duelle a test-wear today. It's not as spicy as I thought it would be. It's nice but hmmm ... it doesn't scream FBW yet.

    Eau Duelle Notes: Cardamom, Asian cyprus, elemi, juniper, saffron, calamus, black tea, black African olibanum, amber, Firnat Vanilla, Bourbon Vanilla, white musk

    RHM, good luck with your surgery. Any word on St Louis yet?

    I had to scrub Dior Addict. It really bothered me. This afternoon I'm wearing Green Cedar Oil from Clear Light Co., which is soothing and grounding for me.

    Almost went with 31 Rue Cambon today, maybe tomorrow...

    SOTE is Frederic Malle, L'Eau d'Hiver (from sample). Not liking it too much so far, too many almonds. I feel like a Bakewell Tart - that's the dessert by the way, not a woman of easy virtue from Derbyshire (sorry that probably won't mean that much to you good folks outside the UK).

    I should be out enjoying the gorgeous fall weather we're having -- 2 weeks' worth of near perfection!

    With the temps only reaching mid-60s today despite full-on sun with not a cloud in the sky, I'm in PdE Ambre Russe to warm things up.
