    I shall join devilcat in Cinema today. My husband has also been on a trip
    to France for work and I too am feeling slightly jealous! I find Cinema to be
    a very people friendly scent, as well as loving the almond note in it.

    Good morning. I'm wearing vintage Miss Dior in EdT - lovely, but I find it surprisingly quiet and fleeting after the wonderful opening. That may be a good thing, I don't feel compelled to haunt Ebay for more.

    Good morning! My SOTD is L'Artisan L'Eau du Navagateur - just waiting for the blizzard to hit St. Louis.

    Notes include bergamot, galbanum, coffee liquor, cinnamon, cedar, incense, opoponax and leather.

    Body Shop Love Etc. Spray layered over a swipe of the solid waxy version (very cute and got it for $5). It's a happy smell, I like the EDP much better than the solid, which is kind of resolutely fruity and a little sour, but together they are plenty nice. And the little tin was just so cute:

    Today I'm spraying the very first sprays from my new Chanel 31 rue Cambon. When I first opened this last week, my very first thought was "it's so tiny!" Just goes to show the perspective developed after handling the 200ml bottles for so long A 75ml bottle is "tiny" now.

    We may be cranking up for a storm of "historic" proportions but I am going the opposite direction with my fragrance by wearing AG's Eau d'Hadrien edp today. Check out my thread under Fragrance Industry, to see what happened when contacted AG about my faulty sprayer.

    Joe, I just talked to my husband in STL, he made it to his job site but admitted most of the streets were "downtown". (Not sure what that means, except I guess there were clear enough to navigate.) He said it's getting slippery now & he's planning to leave early. You guys be safe! 1/2 1" of ice forcast for your area. BTW, Indie_guy's in STL too.

    Who else is in Missouri, Oklahoma, Illinois, Ohio or any of the other 30 + states effected by this storm? Let us know how your doing.

    Storm going on here as well; more snow days (no school) today and tomorrow, and I'll bet a delayed opening Thursday.
    I 'm going to go cut my hair now, and then I'll decide on a scent!

    Guerlain's Derby, a Les Parisiennes bottle from 2005. I almost prefer its refinement to the danker aged original.

    Sprayed on some Habit Rouge to have coffee with (that sounds weird--I didn't pour the HR into the coffee!). Later I will have to find something cheery. We will NOT be getting the snow, but maybe some bad thunderstorms. It is still very gloomy, but that's better than snow and ice. All of you in the path of the storm, keep us posted.

    Bois des Iles today - trying to figure out these exclusives from Chanel. This is only my second wearing, and having a hard time teasing it apart. Does it have some similarities to No.5 that I'm picking up? It's also striking me as in the same family as the Cashmere Mist from yesterday. I'm still in the top notes, so maybe that's just an initial similarity.

    It's hard to spray enough to get an accurate idea of the scent as it unfolds, and not too much to irritate your co-workers! :P

    My welcome mat this morning:





    And this is pretty much exactly what I'm seeing out my front door. (from the 1 minute mark or so on, and there's actually more snow on the ground today. I know, I'm a "weather wimp." I'm not going to re-shoot this year's.)

    Be safe and warm all you Basenoters in this new winter storm's path. Think about moving to south Florida. 75 F, clear and sunny right now. We need an influx of home buyers down here. Sure, we have a few teeny, tiny hurricanes every so often, but who remembers that during and after a blizzard!

    I'll take the occasional blizzard and tornado over hurricane weather, frankly.

    Forgot to spritz but found a decant of Eau de Reglisse in my purse. We got less than an inch of snow, I have to say I'm disappointed. I mean it is 10*F and colder with the wind chill and the roads are icy, but where is the snow? We have had one of the driest winters in my lifetime. The trees are confused and already getting buds, the rose bushes have been turning green for a couple of weeks already.
