    Blackberry & Vanilla Musk from Trish McEvoy. I've decided to abandon using the headline name on the bottle, "Sexy 9," for its inaccurate connotation.

    Have a dandy day.

    Good Evening,

    Changed to a more familiar Chanel: Bois des Îles.

    Ride like the wind, Larimar!

    Best to everyone.

    Good afternoon. Mure et Musc Extreme over a mango body butter from body shop.

    Quarry, if the Trish McEvoy is anything like the MeME, (ooh, I like that abbreviation) would have to agree on non-sexy, this is what I think of as good office perfume. Professional and clear-headed. Not that it isn't Attractive, it smells great and I love it. But it's not sexy like dancing or sex or a night out or high heels, it's more restrained and everyday. It is what I would (will! will!) wear to a job interview, applied lightly, to keep clear head and confidence.

    A little test of 1889 Moulin Rouge from a sample. Reminds me of Lipstick Rose, at least at start.

    Everyone smells so good in here!

    Kewart, I love Dior Escale a Portofino, too. It truly is happy & classy at the same time.

    I went to the gym today and had a really for real workout, but I haven't chosen a SotD yet (I mean SotA!). I may take a cue from Quarry and Robin and wear my sample of L'Artisan's Mure et Musc. I really do like it. I just sampled it for the first time the other day. I am daydreaming about buying a bottle, but will have to wait. I just wrote the check for our credit card bill today. And next month's is going to be a whopper, too. It's going to be a quiet next few months around here. Which is fine, too.

    Scentless so far, but contemplating Aromatics Elixir Perfumer's Reserve post-shower. Take care, fragrant dollies!

    Back in Tromsø and the darkness for a few days now...Didn't make it for breakfast until the time was around...two! Afterwards me and my sisters took a long walk to my dad's where we had dinner. Sotd is Narciso Rodriguez FH edt. It's always best to go on the softer side with my dad when it comes to scent. It's been a while since I last wore it, so I rather enjoyed it Hope you all have a great day!

    scrubbed off George and ended up in Shalimar edp.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    That's probably the better decision, but for a while there I thought maybe you decided to keep the scent and lose the boy!

    Happy New Year, BNers! I'm testing the By Kilian Arabian Nights trio today. Impressions:

    Pure Oud: Nope, can't do. Smells like an army of bandaids.
    Incense Oud: Slightly sweet, mysterious, beautiful! And not very oud-y. ♥
    Rose Oud: Dark, fruity rose oud. I prefer Micallef Rose Oud and C&S Dark Rose.
    Bottom Line: I'm not an oud girl.

    Aromatic's Elixir Perfumer's Reserve by Clinique



    Lessee and I were discussing this one via PM tonight so I decided to make it my SOTE.


    Rtamara - sounds like your son's opinion of fragrances is pretty strong...wonder who he got that from??
    GelbeDomino - I have always wanted to smell/use Shalimar bath oil...is it vintage/disco'd or does Guerlain still make it?
    Quarry - Sexy No. 6 just sounds silly

    I'm testing JM Pomegranate Noir today. I had marked this in my "to-test" wardrobe, but not really sure why. Maybe the plum note? I'm surprised at how spicy this is! Not that I'm an expert on Jo Malone, but this is quite spicy for her, no? But even with the spiciness, there is a clean, fresh feeling running throughout. Unusual for spice and clean to play so well together.

    Hugs to all ...

    I can't believe what I am going to write for Q. and Mike P: How about Sexy No.69? (ducks and covers)

    H., nice to see you, here and on another "hooked" thread. Are you home in CA or home in HI?

    Patricia de Nicolai Vanille Tonka this evening. Mr.T is fully recovered (I gave him a test from a Women's Magazine about tummy aches, his responses led us both to believe he is having PMS of all things).

    Good evening, ladies and gents!!!
    I just came back from work, booo!!!!!!
    Today I wore Philtre d'Amour. I think I over did it, somehow I think I have to use more when it is splash. The office was basically empty, the only problem was that I found myself in a car with four co-workers at lunch time. I think we were the only ones in the building who did not take the day off.
