    Mitsouko Extrait (new) for me today. This is getting too quiet on me and I'm not fully at peace with the peach (I usually dislike fruity notes). I like it and see myself wearing it when the sun is out, deep-blue sky and slightly chilly wind. It's not a love for me, but I have had that picture in mind ever since I first tried it.
    For the mood of the day, I should have gone in Vol de Nuit. Hmmm... my rotation has been very limited recently.
    Oh Twolf, I wouldn't want to change places with you (at 17° F)... or maybe only in front of the open fire in a cosy warm living room
    Have a good day!

    Neil Morris Summer of Love today. This is a lovely scent.
    His perfumes are STRONG, I can see the oil on my skin when they are sprayed and the few I've tried have good longevity, which is definitely something I treasure, since most smells seem fleeting on me.

    Allergies are acting up quite a bit this AM and it is pouring down rain. Didn't want to sample anything I'm trying to form an opinion about today and forgot to pick a perfume until I was about to go out the door. Wearing L'Occitane Plum Blossom today, which I think is nice and I can smell it even with a stuffed up nose.

    Larimar, I hear you. Believe it or not, we also have our two robbins yelling at each other like fishmongers at a Portugese fish market here jumping in the yard and building the nest. It is still a bit below freezing but we are going to hit +17C this week or so they (not robbins, our weather people) say.

    It is Il Giorno del Unicorno today -- Italian national holiday. If it is not, I will be the first to sign the petition to their Prime Minister to honor the lady wearing the darkest clothes in Milano and vicinity.

    Habit Rouge Light by Guerlain



    This is my first wearing from my Xmas gift. Wow, I love it. I wore a sample of this a long time ago and it didn't really impress me, but today it is really impressing me. I know the original EdC and EdT very well, and I also own the EdP (and I've sampled the Dry and Extrait) and this is just a wonderfully light, not-too-sweet version that is still as dusty and retro as the original...without being cloying or sticky. Which, is just perfect, here in Miami. This, I can see, becoming an office staple of mine.

    Thank you Haunani!!!!

    Hi All!

    I started out in DK Black Cashmere early this morning, and then changed to 28 La Pausa which seemed better for work. Now, 28 has faded out so I'm contemplating a SotAfternoon (I always carry a wealthy stash of decants, so I'm covered).

    I chose Eden, byTokyomilk, in honor of Japan.

    Another day in Christian Lacroix C'est La Fête Patchouli. My backup bottle arrived and I couldn't resist! Luckily I wasn't in work 'til the afternoon, giving the possibly not office friendly patchouli opening time to soften down.

    I looked at birthdays -- it's Lady in Black's birthday today, and I see that this is a BNer who is being missed! Happy Birthday, Lady in Black!
    TWolf, I had no problem logging in.

    I am wearing another scent marketed for men that wows me -- Chanel Egoiste! I, ahem, even at a risk of being immodest, would say that it smells better on me than on Mr W (we split our wearing). Lovely! I'd wear it. In a heartbeat.


    Bookkwyrmsmith, is this what the bottle looks like? Is it an EDP or EDT, as in this picture?

    SotD is Pure DKNY, from a Sephora sample. I have brought a coworker over to the dark side - she is fast learning how easy it is to be obsessed with perfume. So we went to our teeny Sephora at lunch and got a few samples. She likes it, but it's just kinda "meh" for me. I don't think I need a bottle.
