    I have chosen Le Parfum de Therese this morning. This is one of the most
    intriguing, beautiful scents in my collection of samples. I feel 100% more elegant
    when I wear it.

    Good morning everyone!

    It's a beautiful morning here, the trees are all white with frost. Unfortunately, the forecast
    is for freezing rain tomorrow and then a winter storm following. I think Champaca by
    Ormonde Jayne should help with the dreary forcast. It's a beautiful, bright, creamy floral,
    so pretty!!

    Top notes: Neroli, Pink Pepper and Bamboo
    Middle notes: Champaca, Freesia absolute and Basmati
    Base notes: Myrrh, Green Tea and Musk

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in another vintage beauty from Mom's vanity, the original Oscar de la Renta. This has always reminded me of a sunny and breezy version of L'Heure Bleue ...not lighter, just more cheerful somehow, and flirtier. I have my own bottle and I can't remember the last time I wore it, but I think it's time to put it back in rotation!

    We are still cold here, Fragonard Vanilla -- thanks to Ms.R for having introduced it to me about 5 years ago. Dry and spicy, but mellow and lingering at the same time, I have got my own bottle since then.

    I am a house-twin with Kiliwia in Ormonde Jayne Frangipani. I wore this scent on the first day of my trip to GA and I am wearing it now on my last one. Several days this scent haunted me as it stayed on my sleeve of the night gown from day 1. I like it more now than when I started with it. I thought of it as a plum "solifruit" at first, and now I smell more floral complexity to it. More love for Ormonde Jayne here.

    Do y'all know she's doing a featuring of Osmanthus this month? If you get a bottle, she will include a complimentary 10 ml purse spray.
