    Hi Duckie

    Happy Birthday Your Serene Highness




    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Switching to Andrea Maack Sharp for the afternoon, thanks to a generous BNer. Notes are
    orange blossom, angel skin, sweet vanilla, white musk and soothing softness, according to
    Luckyscent. Really liking this one so far, very soft sweet orange blossom, with just the right touch of vanilla.

    Trying out Sel de Vetiver on one arm and Sycomore on the other. I was surprised at the blast of thick smoke I got earlier on with the Sycomore but that has subsided a bit and it has sweetened. With Sel de Vetiver I never would have made a salty connection without the name and reviews. It is reminiscent of the ocean though.

    Happy Birthday to Le Grand Duc (growing more handsome with age) and darling Castor Pollux may you both enjoy thoroughly.

    Today I still smelt quite nicely of My Sin from last night, so I let it linger awhile.

    Tonight in honour of Son Majesté Le Grand Duc I will wear some vintage Diorling EdT.

    I have been a good girl and resting today, seeing as it is raining, so I am still healing up.

    Thanks all, be well

    Mimi, that's me too right now. For the past two years I've been in love with No. 5 edt, and now I can't wear it. I'd been avodiing edp but now I'm thinking that's the one for me (in addition to No. 22 and Eau Première), and I'm convinced it's all about hormones. I'm saving my No. 5 edt for another day.

    My SotE is Gucci Guilty, which I tested at Nordstrom. I only got to do a quickie tour of the fragrance department, as I was with my husband and it was his trip, and I made a detour as he was looking in the men's department. I thought that Gucci Guilty might be worthy of skin space from sniffing the bottle and spraying a tiny bit into the air, but it wasn't. The come-on in the top notes did not work out for me at all. It intensified into an obnoxious monster on my skin. Actually, it's not that horrible, I actually rather like it, but it has that awful, harsh, modern "woodsy" accord, whatever that is, that I LOATHE, even though it's not as intense in Guilty as it is in others I have smelled. Other scents I might go back to investigate: the new Balmain; and Leila, which has been around for years now, but that smells really good to me right now. I took a spritz of Marc Jacobs Curaçao but could barely smell it, as Gucci Guilty blew it into oblivion. I have washed my hands several times now, washed vegetables, cooked dinner, and this Guilty is still going strong. It's beginning to mellow out now. :0/
