    Right on, L! Sunny and 18 degrees in London today.
    Jon - What a great 'tick' for the garden bird list. Lucky you!

    Working at home today, and digging into a pile of samples I received yesterday from an incredibly generous BNer.
    Side-by-side tests of Sous le Vent vintages / batches and Parure EdT.

    Tonight I'm off to a perfume event, exploring 'leather' as a note. Super excited not only to smell lots of perfumes, but also to meet Grant and Lila, who I understand will be there.
    L - I plan to bring along a sample of vintage Scandal extrait that you sent me a long time ago. You'll be present 'in spirit'.

    Have a fantastic Thursday, gang

    I am so curious to hear your view on the batches of Sous le Vent and, of course, the Parure EdT, G.! I think you should *love* the Parure? I mean, you don't have to... I won't commit suicide, it's just me guessing your taste...
    I envy you this perfume event. I remember when I saw it posted here on BN I knew I would find your comment in that thread. Do enjoy! Happy sniffing!!!!

    2nd day in a row, from a liberty sample, alas, i don't think i'll get a fb. there's something there that bothers me a bit and makes me think i would only wear it very rarely (i think it's the overdose of pepper). like the drydown, don't like very much the first 30min.

    very nice weather in london indeed G, looks like it will stay like this for the rest of the week. it's so similar to last year's spring, not a drop of rain, really warm, then we had a crappy summer. hope it will not be the same this year. you're going to the perfume event for the 'leather exploration'? great! i've passed on that, eh, this is what happens when you have a 1yr old that demands your constant attention, lol!!..
    L - knize ten, mmmm.. i wanted to wear it last week, during my 'leather phase', in the end i've 'chickened out', went for something softer..
    have a great day everyone!

    gandhajala have a great time this evening, I went to their first meeting and really enjoyed it. In fact that's what gave me the confidence to actually start posting here. It's fun and informative and a lovely group of people. Sadly working too hard right now to commit - but hope to make some in the future. Please come back and tell us all about it!

    Having a day off from the chypre sniffathon but woke thinking it was Friday and I'm in Mona's Carnation. This is glorious! Cloves Dianthus but done gentle and rounded. The opening reminded me a little of vintage Opium but the heart, 3hrs in has such clarity. Excellent work. Will wear again tomorrow for the synch.

    Thank you to Bonsai for being kind enough to allow me to sample this. I have been very remiss in not reporting earlier

    Alityke and everybody. The greatest news of the day is that the Feedback option is up and running. Please please go to the people's profiles and start leaving Feedback -- I can't stress the importance enough. While the option was down, I mailed out 7 packages that the recipients have received by now. We have a very successful Freebie thread -- wooznib's -- and it does not matter if it is a $300 fragrance or a single sample: people went through the trouble of getting packaging materials, went to their PO and paid S&H -- enough reasons to be patted in the shoulder. Please?

    Perles de Lalique.

    Usually I am the softie! I am enjoying it today. It is not my style for 'everyday' or for a 'great love', but it is growing on me having identified now that I need to splash this and let dry before I put on my shirt (it's too harsh on fabric).

    Good morning! Everyone seems really cheery today. It is the sunshine! Yes we have it too!

    Now, Evangeline your job sounds fabulous. Well done you lucky thing! My job also involves children but not dancing in Tutu's sadly. I work on the other end of the spectrum. So I really do understand the joy that you will have. It is just a lovely image. It made me smile.

    30 Roses Does this sound familiar. I woke up around three this morning with a pain in my shoulder and I struggled the rest of the night? Yep, me too sister.

    G Wish I was coming with you. I look forward to your report.

    Well, all this talk of Almonds was putting me in the mood then I saw Mini's lemons (from yesterday), so lemons is it! Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Sicilia, a straight up, lovely, sunny, clear headed optimistic Cologne.

    just received a 5ml mini bottle of christian lacroix tumulte which has been discontinued, it is very nice peppery/spicy/woody (i detect laurel), cedar and incense perfume, nicely executed, could very well belong to cdg series 3 incense or even more to their series 2 red. you can still find it relatively cheap on ebay, it's a safe blind buy, it is quite a little gem.

    Today I started to wear Alien by Thierry Mugler- applied 2 sprays to my chest before dressing- then I changed my mind and applied Eau de Shalimar. So I guess you could say that I'm layering the two. Interesting ...

    Also brought a sample of Shalimar edc with me in my bag in case I need to "freshen up" later-- I'll be out and about till my night class at 6, then maybe going to see a Honky Tonk band afterward.

    Have a great day, everyone!!!

    yesterday in Carnal Flower and last night and today in Fracas! This is a new trend for me.
    "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
