    Dom, I'm a great fan of 1000. Your version looks fascinating. I don't own the juice in any vintage except for store samples, but the body lotion is fantastically fragranced and lasts all day. Mine was given to me as a gift by my favourite ex- Selfridges SA.

    Linda, I shall miss you.

    Not yet applied, my SotD will be

    FERRE

    a few dabs of Shalimar to start the day, will explore other loves later...
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    Milou, congratulations! It's good to have you here.

    I'm also in Serge Lutens - thanks to a divine perfume friend, I am testing Iris Silver Mist
    Notes: iris pallida root, galbanum, cedar, sandalwood, clove, vetiver, musk, benzoin, incense, white amber

    This starts out organic-smelling, rooty and vegetal. Over time it smooths out, getting powdered and becoming a more "proper" fragrance, but doesn't pick up much sweetness along the way. Its character is perfectly suited to its name, making the ethereal Hermes Hiris downright substantial and earthbound by comparison. It is a dreamy beauty -- otherworldly.

    Enjoy the day, all!

    Rosine Roseberry today.

    I bought this used-- not really remembering it from my sampling of the Rosines a few years ago-- and find it a bit too sweet, but I'm going to give it a full wearing and see how I feel about it. My daughter seems to like wearing it, though, so it may become her bottle.

    Those Lolita Lempicka bottles are adorable. I love them.

    My sotd...

    Ozwald Boateng Bespoke - Orange

    Notes include rhubarb leaves, peppermint, bergamot, purple orchids, roses, lily of the valley, vetiver from Ghana, sandalwood, rosewood, heliotrope, musk, and vanilla.

    I have a decant of this that Musse sent me a while back. This is one of my favorite fragrances…I hoard my little decant. I would never have known about it but for Musse because I’ve never seen anyone ever talk about it. I don’t even know if it’s still being made. It smells orangey, pepperminty, vanillic and heliotropey – cheerful and sweet. It makes me smile. There’s also a Red, but I like Orange better. Enjoy the day, all!

    LOL! Lift, you are a true Basenoter!

    Well I'm on my weekend roadtrip in Las Vegas and am scentless (except for the strong traces of my LUSH shampoo bar) so I can test, test, test.

    Last night I sampled Tauer's Orange Star- orangey notes usually do very well on my skin but, alas, this reacted badly- sour and dank.

    I wore Chanel Beige (from a sample) last night and then again today. When I first tested this fragrance I didn't think much of it. It was summer, and it smelled too strongly floral and sweet. Now, in the cool fall weather, it's quite beautiful. It's a subtle scent, not overtly floral, a bit green, and it reminds me somewhat of Infusion d'Iris...but smoother.

    My impressions exactly! I was not impressed on a Summer day, but it was already a different story in September. I will be using up the sample to learn more about my impressions. I don't get green, unfortunately, but I do get a little chemical blast in the early stage (could live without that), but I was told to avoid freesia.

    Today I'm wearing Cologne du 68, 'cause I couldn't decide what to wear. With its 68 notes (!) it kinda has that handled. Seriously though it is quite a nice scent, on me a little anise heavy but also woody and has the Guerlinade I like.

    Oh... and Happy Birthday, Jaime B!

    It smells the same, I'm sure

    Was tempted to buy the 1000 de Bain off evilBay for almost $50(which I thought was a steal),but mercifully, my 'value discretion' adjusted to that of the online fleamarket pretty quickly so I abstained.
