    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.

    Congrats, Milou! Welcome, Lift!

    This morning I wore Bulgari Au Thé Blanc and thought about Ubuandibeme.
    Now I'm wearing Dior Lily and thinking about Brielle.

    I am wearing my new Traversee au Bosphore, admired on the street yesterday by a homeless man with obviously discerning taste.

    I can't smell much still, so I decided to stick with Rive Gauche, again with the idea that if I cannot enjoy its charms, at least others still can. Take care, all.

    Congrats, Milou! I'm still pretty new.

    Today has been Calandre by Rabanne. It is midafternoon and so I have tried my sample of Fracas on the wrist. Tuberose is difficult for me and I'm hoping to develop a love for it.

    It has turned warm again, and we're on our way to a church fundraiser fish fry. I'm smelling very nice, if I do say so myself, in Estee Lauder's Beyond Paradise this evening. Have a good one!

    I almost wore Yvresse again, since I enjoyed it so much yesterday evening, but I went to test more Carons. Tabac Blond and Narciss Noir. I really like the latter, might need another test to be sure.

    Have a great day everybody!

    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.
