    Good morning,
    This morning I have Habanita vintage EdT (from the stunning square Lalique bottle, prob. 1970s), the current EdT (maybe vintage again, because, if I recall well, I picked up somewhere that it was reformulated to something terrible) and finally the current Habanita extrait on my arms.
    I have to say that the vintage EdT is something harsh and cheap smelling until it settles down. Today's Habanita is a fair presentation to the original style. I much more prefer it. Today's EdT is noticeably sweeter and much more powdery than the extrait. The extrait is the way to go! I'm awaiting some old extrait, which I bought at a surprisingly low price (bottle looks great, almost no evaporation) - the French seller was only willing to ship to very few European countries, which fortunately included Austria.
    Best to all for a lovely Sunday!

    Good morning all !. Looks as though I'm the latest one to fall victim to something nasty - raging throat, shivers etc, etc. Think I need to fix myself a hot toddy ASAP.




    Congratulations to rtamara41 on reaching an impressive milestone - thanks for being a great BNer







    SotD is MFK Aqua Universalis Forte.

    Oh dear - Get well soon, Jon!

    SotM is Mouchoir de Monsieur - left arm current formulation, right arm slightly older formulation. I'm going out later to collect a couple of suits from the tailor (which I'm very excited about) and meet a friend. I'm leaning towards Ungaro II for the occasion.

    I hope it is OK to post this here:
    Edit: Gone!

    *freebie* (having a clear-out):
    - 9ml decant S.L. Encens et Lavande
    - 4ish ml decant P.G. Cadjméré
    - official sample S. L. Sa Majesté la Rose
    - samples of Serge Lutens lipsticks (they come on a card just like the wax perfume samples. Unused, obviously).

    If anyone would like these (as a lot), please say and I'll pop them in the post next week


    Best to all.

Up early to do grocery shop and see to Mum so I can wallow in FA Cup double bill this afternoon. Got ironing n packing to do and may well add something to the ironing spray to fragrance everything in the cases. Will be a pick me up when unpacking after 4 hrs in cargo

    Haven't decided yet, but popped on for some inspiration - Jon, you are sweet! Nothing quite says congratulations like fireworks!

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."

    Good Morning!

    Rtamara, congrats on reaching 4000!

    SotD is Guerlain Bois d'Armenie, it's part of the L'Art et la Matiere line.
    Notes include incense, iris, pink pepper, precious woods, benzoin, coriander,
    Indonesian patchouli, white musk and copahu balsam (nst). I only have a little
    bit left of a sample from a dear BN friend. This is one I would definitely buy,
    actually it's number 1 on my wish list, just can't justify getting it right now.
    This is such a beautiful fragrance, soft woods, subdued incense and patchouli,
    I just love it!

    Well, I knew something was off with me all week and woke up in the night Fri. with something I haven't had for about a hundred years- the stomach flu! Feeling better now but still weak. Actually wanted some scent this morning but only a simple, pretty, clean one. Went with Cote Bastide Lilas (thanks 30R,it's really hitting the spot today!). Have never had a flu shot as I haven't caught the flu since I was a child but you better believe I'll get one from now on!

    Have a good day,all!

    Good morning! I'm wearing Bouquet Blanc concrete parum (Anthropologie) while having coffee. A pretty, uncomplicated, straight up white floral that hits the spot when the mood strikes (which isn't very often for me). Lilly of the valley carried in the breeze, warm, Spring sun on my face...very pretty, and seems just right for a Sunday morning.

    Tabu again, I always seem to wear the same fragrance over a few days.
    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    Moved on to current Jicky EdP (I need to finish that refill bottle, anyway and it pisses me totally off that this is called Jicky. So, I plan to drain that thing better sooner than later). Guerlain, you should be whipped heavily for what you are doing! Is there any civet in it at all or can you even measure such minute quantities?
    I figure this is Guerlain's approximation (a pleasant lavender and therefore fleeting) to Caron's legendary Pour un Homme, ergo for the woman, who can't by definition bring herself to wear a fragrance pour Homme. Don't even think of the price difference per ml if compared...

    Notes (lists vary): Cistus labdanum, civet, castoreum, musk aubepine, vanilla, birch tar, cinnamon, patchouli, gurjun balsam, tonka bean

    Comments: Powdery, warm, comfort fragrance, but to my nose a little cloying. Sort of like Shalimar with fewer dimensions. Pretty nice, but it makes me want to open a window!
