    Good morning,
    I think the greatest joy (for me) of wearing Chanel's Cuir de Russie Parfum is the 'contradiction' of smelling quite wrong (animalic and sweaty... others have used this long before me, but yes, SWEATY!) and of class and luxury at the same time.
    Best to all!

    Good morning all. SotD is Geir.
    Returning to work after a long weekend - need an invigorating scent to lift the mood and this is just perfect.

    Another hot day, L'Artisan THE Pour un ETE sounds perfect to me. This 1996 summer release was created as a limited edition by Olivia Giacobetti, and has notes of peppermint, lemon, jasmine, and green tea.

    Costes EDT. This was recommended as a good 'rose for those who can't wear rose' and it seems to be just that. Rose drowned in spices and then somehow lightened up to where it's transparent, not sparkling but airy light. Very lovely. And it doesn't seem to turn icky on me, even though it's obviously rosey, which is good. But it doesn't last very long.

    Thanks to a lovely, generous friend I have the pleasure of testing the fragrances of Ormonde Jayne. I am already familiar with and admire Ormonde Woman, Tolu, and Ormonde Man, but there are others I have yet to try. Today it's Ta'if, a sophisticated, heavy-lidded floral-oriental. It is beautiful.

    top notes: pink pepper, saffron, dates
    heart notes: rose oil, freesia, orange flower absolute, jasmine
    base notes: broom, amber

    Take care, everyone!

    Good morning! Up late last night due to the storms that went through our area. Thankfully, no tornadoes, just lightning, rain and wind.

    My SotD is Profumi del Forte Versilia Vintage-Boise thanks to a very kind BNer letting me sample it. Notes are bitter orange, bergamot, vetiver, lavender, bourbon geranium, honey, Texas cedar, Indonesian patchouli, tonka bean, elemi from the Philippines. Very nice citrus and cedar scent, very fresh smelling.

    Have a good day!

    Good morning everyone I'm having a hard time decide which scent to wear today ( should probably join the "pick my scent" thread more often, so undecided that I am ) For now I'm in favour of # 88 I think, but Kasmir Spice also seems tempting. Will see how I feel after a shower.
    Ok,eventually ended up with Kashmir Spice. Have a nice day everyone!

    Many of you are wearing my favorites today -- Costes, older Pivoine, Ta'if. Mmmmmm.....

    We also had a huge thunderstorm last night right at midnight, Mr.T woke me up and we were waiting for the city sirens to chase us down into the basement, but fortunately it did not happen. Slept fully clothed the rest of the night though.

    L'Artisan Parfumeur Verte Violette. Thanks H. for acknowledging what I meant, " a permanent violet kick".

    I sprayed Le Baiser du Dragon hair mist onto my hair (where else?)
    this morning and had a surprise reaction from our scaffolder. He kept asking
    if I was baking cakes and I kept saying "No" and that I had only cooked
    bacon and eggs that morning. Then I twigged - it must have been the LBdG!
    Does anyone else think this smells of cakes?

    Sampling

    Si Lolita: Starts out with a pleasing herbs-and-spices opening, which I guess we are to attribute to the sweet pea note. I like it well, and it puts me in mind of Macchia Mediterranea with the addition of a general female perfume aura. Last night while I was pre-sampling half a dozen things at once, I thought that this Lolita Lempicka invention dried down to resemble Ambre Narguile. I'll see if that observation holds true.

    SMN Honeysuckle: I brought in some honeysuckle flowers this morning to see if I could smell them. I remember a childhood friend trying to point out their fragrance to me, but apparently I'm anosmic to the flowers' odor. DH couldn't pick up a scent from the flowers either. Thanks, Mimi, for giving me a point of reference in liquid form. It is a very pretty, low-pitched floral.

    Calendar says Tuesday, but it feels like Monday for many of us.
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    I'm still deciding what to wear. I'm doing what Mimi suggested in the "morning routine" thread which is to wait 20 minutes after my shower in order to allow some body oils to build up that the fragrance can "stick" to so as to last longer.

    Cello's Eau Premiere sounds good. I think that's becoming my "when I can't decide" fragrance.

    I actually ended up with Geisha Green because my Aroma M sample pack was sitting right next to where I was drying my hair.

    Morning all ! Tdem- I LOVE Ta'if- it's fantastic !
    Quarry- hugs to you ,babe. I love SMN Honeysuckle !

    This morning it's Chanel No.5 extrait.
    I do wonder just what percentage of women in general ( not perfume nuts like us ) like or wear No.5 anymore. A lot of 'normal' women I speak to don't seem to like it and prefer Coco Mademoiselle. Oh well ,more for us and makes the smell of it less ubiquitous !

    Typical - after a wretched bank holiday weekend weatherwise (although I expect gardeners and farmers around here will be happy after yesterday's downpour) today dawned bright and sunny, perfect for a day stuck in the office

    Calamity J is my choice of scent for today.
