    I'm seeing in the new day still at my computer, and still wearing my aromatherapy type pendant sprayed with Penhaligon's Bluebell. I sprayed it 12 hours ago and it's going strong.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm up way to early this morning because of a naughty, naughty little girl kitty! I can't believe people ever deliberately get up this early - I had forgotten that there's a 5:00 in the a.m., too! But at least this gives me the opportunity to get another fragrance into my day. My scent of the wee small hours of the morning (also known, of course, as sotwshotm) is L'Or de Torrente.






    Y'all have a great day!

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    "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."

    Nice! (How are the pups taking to their very own EDT?)

    I'm thinking about...breaking into the samples I figured out I've somehow lost labels for (or rubbed off out of stupidly not taping over the sharpie name) and having a little detective-like fun. Yesterday's mystery which turned out to be Fumerie Turque got me wondering how many others I've done that to! So... going to rummage in samples, will be back with SOMETHING SMELLY-GOOD on!

    Back, with Coromandel on one hand (no mistaking the sweet vanilla-patchouli-incense-airiness in this one!) and what I believe is a teensy bit of vintage Poison (one from our dear Duck...er..Le Grand Duc) on the other. Smelly good is right! And the new Poison smells like bug spray mixed with grape Koolaid by comparison.

    Ms E, you may be able to fit in a third fragrance today, known as Sotnt (scent of the nap time)!

    Catching up on wearing ambers this weekend. Today is Ambre Russe, stolen from my hubby's cache.

    I'm wearing the delicious Habanita today. I recently sold some of my wardrobe and used a little of the cash to acquire this and Imperial Opoponax. I don't regret it at all. My wardrobe was full of scents I'd acquired from others but hadn't chosen, or had chosen back when I was too new at perfumes to really know what I liked. Habanita is so me it's unreal!

    Next stop, Keiko Mecheri's Mulholland! Should manage that with another sale next month. Or, I might save it for a Jalaine. Who knows!

    Hope you're all well! xxx I missed the forum this week - laid out with flu. No point wearing perfumes when you can't smell anything. Thank heavens things are back to normal today!

    Floating on my favourite concoction - Penhaligon's Lily & Spice with an unbranded Lily Flower attar. The Lily & Spice is just too smooth and well behaved sometimes, and the attar adds a touch of obnoxiously enjoyable fleshy wintergreen back in.

    Joining Petra Ichor in lily today...Donna Karan Gold edp for me today. I get a lot of acacia in it as well. It smells very rich and sweet, with a touch of bitterness at the heart. It is so very well done, this fragrance. I love it, though I seldom wear it. I suppose the weather is right now. It has turned cooler though still golden with sunshine. My favorite kind of day!

    Nice to see lots of Habanita out there this past week!

    Just got back from shopping for clothes (in a ... cough... little bigger size. Gotta love middle-age)... and I made the "mistake" of wandering by the perfume counters... ended up with the 'lemming' from last week, Chanel Platinum Egoiste pour Homme 100 ml EDT, and quite happy about it. As I "scored" with 30% off already-on-sale fall clothes, I felt good about that and needed to give myself a treat for a two month long project that was finished successfully yesterday (FINALLY!)...I think I'm a little nuts for the marketed-to-masculine scents and PE was on my mind since my trip to ULTA last week. No more scent purchases for me until Christmas! So now I'm "layered" with the Coromandel from this morning, a few teensy test spritzes (Midnight Poison, Alien neither of which sang to me though I did enjoy MP from a sample earlier in the year) and Platinum Egoiste. Fragrantly ready for my lawn work!

    E., I wonder why do I like your whole fragrance row this week? You do not know? Or, you do not even want to know you say?

    Was rushed in the morning, put on whatever was in my purse. And in my purse was a brand new sample of Etro Vicolo Fiori still attached to the card from my UK BN friend.

    I'm still not over the dang flu that hit me real hard on Thursday but today's thread is really lifting my mood:

    Scent of the wee small hours of the morning??? Scent of the nap time??? Oh my dog EDT! Priceless!

    And love for Habanita, L'Or de Torrente and DK Gold, too.

    I'm back in the saddle scent-wise after not being able to handle any Thurs and Fri in my "new" Detechma Parfum de Toilette. This stuff is divine... and only two reviews here...very strange.
