    Default SOTD: Monday 18th, 2010

    Happy Week Everybody



    Agent Provocateur by Agent Provocateur
    The composition starts strong and sharp with a spicy note of saffron. Warm floral notes of magnolia, Indian jasmine and gardenia blend together with strong woodsy-chypre scent. There is very animalistic amber and musk notes in the base.

    There must be some secret addictive ingredient in this scent: once I start sniffing, it's hard to stop!

    The Poeme I wore this afternoon is still clinging on for dear life, about 6.5 hours after my bath that was supposed to tone it down a little.It now smells like the scented wet towels handed out in many Chinese restaurants.

    No Shalimar for me, it's the scent that got me started on my perfume journey but not one I can wear, unfortunately. Instead, I am enjoying YSL's "Y" I picked up at a fragrance kiosk. I go through phases with this where I want to wear it all the time, then I don't wear it at all for months.
    30 Roses, I got your sweet package. Thank you! You can send a pm now too, btw.

    Nice review, RHM! I'll sniff this next time I get a chance --
    OK, ExtremeKF, time to pull yourself up by your black cashmere bootstraps and get a smile on!!

    Well, I'm not wearing Shalimar today -- I've never even SNIFFED it! (I hear gasps...)
    But, ODDLY ENOUGH! Today, via an auction I'd forgotten that I'd bid on (with my trusty snipe-bid program) I won a partial bottle of, yes.... WAIT FOR IT.... **SHALIMAR** (about 15 mls), for under $10 including shipping. A good way to try it out, cheaper than a mini, and I don't like those little 1 or 2 ml sample/decants -- my nose-to-brain-connection is too slow, I need more juice than that to try out a scent!

    But, I digress, what were we talking about? Oh yes, SOTD: Jolie Madame!

    It's a tuberose and plumeria fragrance and I LOVE this! (Did anyone faint?) Amazing, I know. I think I'm following in Wordbird's change 'o chemistry path of late. Sheesh...I remember writing reviews of Neil's scents & disliking the one with a strong plumeria note. Maybe I should try it again.

    Ha! No one fainted. The SotD report had nothing to do with Kiliwia's birthday picture, though it would have been *really* neat if my hand had reached for a plumeria fragrance like Le'a or Beige! (Oh wait - I don't own Beige. I just wish I did!)

    Or you could do what I've been doing - look for a sample lot of the same perfume, buy it for next to nothing, then move all those little samples into a decant bottle and smell away. I've bought 15 ml and 12 ml in the last two days for less than $10.00 apiece, including shipping.

    Happy Birthday Kiliwia! Many, many, more.

    And today, for a running-around-errand day, Feminite du Bois (the Shiseido version) with a little bit of Omnia due to a (fortunate) decanting leak. They actually play pretty nice together!
