    Good morning,
    Appropriate for this kind of weather (i know you'd be suffering Jon ), I'll empty my sample of the Septimanie Pavillon des Fleurs... I see this going on top of my buy list.
    Have a great day!

    Hi All,

    Chanel's Bel Respiro. Rapidly draining my mini of this, but it's just so perfect in this warm, sunny weather. I sold 5 bottles yesterday on fleabay (feels so good!), so perhaps I can put that money towards a full bottle.

    Enjoy your Saturday everyone

    Balmain de Balmain. It was the first bottle I saw on waking up. How's that for a well rationalized fragrance decision?

    Last night I layered Shalimar EdT over the earlier Vanille Givree des Antilles. I expected the Antilles vanilla to poke through more but Shalimar's bergamot and different vanilla overpowered it.

    I'm taking a course and today I have to study which calls for incense. I used to often wear Messe de Minuit when I was in university, but I don't know where that is now. Instead, I doused myself in Passage d'Enfer - a day at home means no one else to disturb with such a generous application of fragrance.

    Chanel Bois des Iles parfum last night & will continue with that for today.

    When I checked the news this morning, I was alarmed to see that a tornado had ripped through Lambert Airport & parts of north St Louis last night.

    My husband says he's "okay" but the airport won't be open for "days".

    Nasomatto Narcotic Venus (tuberose, jasmine, lily, spices) from a sample. It's really gorgeous - I cannot imagine anyone objecting to this, but at the same time it is not common smelling - but seems awfully light and fleeting for something that costs so very much.

    Kotori, so glad you are recovering from the migraines. Nothing is worse pain than the migraine headache - people have asked me "how did you have kids with no painkillers?" and all I can ever think is "well it wasn't as bad as a migraine". So I hope you feel better for a loooooooooooooong time.

    Last night I had dinner with my aunt at a wonderful, fancy new seafood restaurant in town...I wore a jacket, got all dressed up (which I rarely do for going out to dinner) and I smelled fantastic in:

    Heritage (vintage EdP) by Guerlain



    When I got home, and took my shirt off, the dry down really grabbed me. What an impressive and classic fragrance.


    Today, it's hot and I'm wearing the very simple L'Eau Frappee by IUNX

    Sending good vibes to Kotori and RHM. Kotori, migraines are evil -- I'm glad you are on the mend. RHM, I'm glad your husband is okay.

    I'm helping out with an event on campus today so I decided to wear something "official" smelling: Chanel No. 19. The students will know me by my ladylike roar.

    Happy St. George's Day to any and all celebrating! And take care, all.

    Thanks, Leesee. My husband says he's fine.

    A swap package arrived today with a leaky bottle of MPG's Ambre Precieux. The box smelled marvelous. Too bad about the leaking. The box was very well packed. The atomizer was the fault. Don't know how that could have been avoided though.
