    R., I love the idea of your liberating that vintage Shalimar.

    (((Quarry))), hope that gets better soon.

    Happy Birthday to Nukapai!



    I’m wearing a dab of Bourbon French musk today.

    Hello all. No. 5 Eau Première was SotD, and a I have a spritz of Shalimar Parfum Intial L'Eau on the back of my hand from a sample. So far, it really does seem like just a lighter version of the original. Will test them side by side tomorrow if I remember.

    Hope those feeling under the weather get well soon. And a very Happy Birthday to Nukapai!

    Happy Birthday Nukapai!

    And I have a personal BN holiday -- today it's two years since I joined
    I am NOT wearing sample B from March Blind sniff -- if you read the sniffers' expressions, you will understand why. I am at work, having to do a talk for grad students, then a lunch talk, then a class. Back to back, ugh. I am wearing Crystal Flowers by Montale again on this rainy Spring day on the Wet Coast.

    Much love to you, folks, and I will join my voice to Wolfie's without naming names -- anyone who wants to know a little more about their sniffing can have fun at a Blind Sniff, and we do need folks to sniff in April.

    Congrats to Warum
    Devilcat I found Shalimar PI L'Eau more legible than Shalimar PI. The top notes, whilst still unpleasant, were way less unpleasant in L'Eau than in PI to my nose and the L'Eau got into that beautiful heart more quickly and stayed there longer. Interesting idea to do a side by side. Might do that myself

    Alas TWOLF- As I told Warum in a PM, April is just not good for me to be a blind sniffer.

    Happy BN anniversaire Warum!

    Wearing PotL Luctor et Emergo from a sample, wanted something different. Anyone know of a good dupe for this? I've always liked it, never wanted to spend that much on something that is mostly cherry almond on my skin.

    Hey y'all -

    I'm in Lemon Alien again ...I think it's becoming an addiction! But it's inspired me to bake lemony treats, so I'm going to use the last of the Meyer lemons from my parents tree to make a mile-high lemon meringue pie. Or maybe a lemon pound cake. Or both!




    Oh, Auntie knit, please come and have a seat by me ....you smell incredible!

    jacona - I haven't smelled it, but Bathed & Infused has a dupe of Luctor et Emergo called "The Lost". Although I don't know their perfumes, I have tried their body lotions and creams (their "fluffs", too, lol) and they're pretty nice and very affordable, so that might be worth a try.

    Good evening lovely smelling people. Today wore Smell Bent Debonair Eau Dandy. It is Very Good. All of the "Remixes" he did are hits IMO.

    Happy Birthday Nukapai!

    Evangeline, I really want to try the Lemon Alien now. Funny name but I can so see that working.

    Lol!! Robin and 30Roses - sorry if I confused you! I mentioned in yesterday's thread that "Lemon Alien" is Tony's (the hubs) name for it, and I think it's catchy, and accurate, and quicker than Alien Sunessence Légère edt, plus it's not the only Alien Sunessence anyway ...thus, Lemon Alien. But it is very nice and I'd highly and happily recommend it, especially if you already know and at least like Alien, because this is definitely Alien, with lemon. But the lemon isn't tart like the juice, it's smooth and luscious like the peel ...just like limoncello. I'm smitten.

    LOL at Hedonist, you know -- it is not Abu Dhabi, naha.

    BellaRose, this fact never seizes to amaze me -- we are here in the spring and you guys, downunder, are in the autumn. And then there is the peak of winter -- June of all things. Sorry, but I feel like an 8-year-old, again. And always. Wow.

    Have a good evening, dears.
