    Good Morning,

    Thanks for the cheery tune, Jon! Have fun in the sales.

    I'm off to the Tate Modern gallery this morning for some culture. SotD is Chanel Cuir de Russie (vintage EdT).

    Wishing everyone a lovely weekend.

    Hi all. Jon, Gandhajala, what great plans you have today! Have a lovely time. Unfortunately the only thing in my diary today is a tedious bank appointment - yuck!

    Secrète Datura by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier today.

    Enjoy your weekend everyone.

    Good morning folks,

    We can't do without honoring Etta James today, so here is a live performance, clearly indicating to me that we need singers, who are able to transport strong emotions and feelings with fervor and soul. No nice sing-along songs, but creative and daring interpretations!



    or



    I'm comparing current Acaciosa with two different vintages (one thanks to a kind and generous BN friend ) and another sample of Joy vintage extrait (thank you for your generous offer, it's much appreciated ).
    I'm risking to be stoned, but I think R. Fraysse improved Acaciosa... they are all clearly identifiable as Acaciosa, the one vintage sample is aged and I don't think this perfume fares well with age. Both vintages left me, while the current still lingers on with its smoky undertone. Gosh, this really is sublime and so much fun! Joy has a different vibe (more than I had thought), but with time this and Acaciosa approximate each other quite a bit. They are linked IMO.

    easyfish, this bottle is a stunner!!

    Do enjoy your weekend!

    OK, nice thread so far. Yesterday's was fabulous, too, with most people being in synch.

    Larimar, if you change your name to Hedonist (as per suggested), I wonder what the original Hedonist will do? But if I am ever in your neck of woods, I will cook for the bunch (Mid-Eastern included, special requests welcome!) and I will bring embroidered napkins for the crowd with me, Dr.G will be my baking coach/advisor and we will play The Mask (gosh, what a guilty pleasure, love it, JR!) at all times, in our Heaven's Kitchen.

    Easyfish, what is the picture of, please?

    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.

    Cristalle EDT today.

    Yes, very sad about Etta James. Rumours were that this was coming for some time now. Glad she will suffer no more poor health but what a loss for the rest of us. Seems we have more entertainers than actual singers and musicians these days.

    I'm wearing Cuir Ottoman today. So kickass while I'm out running errands with Mr Bleu today. We are leaving on vacation in two weeks, and have to pick up a lot of little last minute stuff to take. Shopping with hubby can sometimes be a bit of blur (he's not a fan of shopping!) And then home in time for the KU basketball game ... go Jayhawks!

    Happy, happy Saturday, everyone!

    I agree, hedonist and Twolf! About the naming... there is only one hedonist and he is our friend with good taste here! If I ever visit you, I insist you serve me that Blue Mountain's espresso you once had a pic of! I insist!

    Snowfall this afternoon and at the moment (it will rain overnight), so, after a walk in the wonderful snowy air I'm taking a break from my chypré mania of late and go for Habanita Extrait instead tonight. Spritzing yourself with this bulb atomizer is fun and gaudy at once...

    Etta James 1938-2012
    Born Jamesetta Hawkins in 1938 in Los Angeles,
    Etta James was the daughter of a 14-year-old mother
    and a father she never knew. She would later claim to
    have reason to believe her father was the legendary
    pool player Rudolf "Minnesota Fats" Wanderone Jr.

    Good Evening,

    I see Twolf has put me on baking duty for Larimar's party / BN meetup. Good timing, as I've just finished icing a chocolate + rasberry jam cake. I hope there will be enough to go around:



    Lovely tributes to Etta James. May she rest in peace.

    I'm freshly showered with Mitsouko soap and applied a few spritzes of the EdP for good measure.

    Everyone smells fab today (as always).
    Take care, all.

    Great purchase! I picked up a vintage bottle on Ebay last week myself. I am hoping that it is going to be *the perfect* sandalwood.
    This weekend, because I am house bound by both the weather and my arm, I am venturing deep into my magic box of miniatures and samples, and pulling out some neglected lovelies, for the purpose of wearing and reviewing. Right now I am wearing some vintage Estee Lauder Azuree, from 1969.
    Top of basil, jasmine, and citrus; a heart of armoise, vetiver, and rose; and a base of patchouli, moss, and amber. Another interesting green chypre.
    Less bite than yesterday's Alliage. Just loving these. Keep warm and dry all.

    Went to doctor so scentless so far but it's going to be a Horny Little Devil Day. The kids have been misbehaving so I have little devils on my hands...One of them managed a whining marathon that included whining about:

    Getting in the right-hand door of the car, she wanted to get in the left side.
