    Good morning.

    Wearing Fleurs de Sel!

    I finally picked it up yesterday. The Nouvelle edition suddenly went out of stock 6 months ago and none of the SAs knew why. I finally sent the agent an email to which he responded there are several Nouvelle editions in stock at the warehouse and was surprised that they weren't being displayed at the Miller Harris boutique.
    I'd assumed they recalled the older Nouvelle Edition boxes because they had new ones.

    Any how I got Fleurs de Sel and love it. A gem of hidden characteristic I tell you.

    Getting into the car not long ago..husband comments that I smell nice and a bit strange at the same time lol..Poison vintage.

    Earlier I sampled Chanel Beige, I like that one, nice to wear in the heat. Cannot afford a full bottle though, or even half a bottle right now lol..too bad.

    a transparent, bit non-descript woody oriental which wears very close to skin (read 'thin') from the beginning and completely disappears after 30min! i'll have to put on something else very soon. overall, disappointing after trying 'chambre noire' which i like a lot and 'still life' which i own. read alfarom's review, couldn't put it any better. y'all have a good day (southern style).

    Some Cologne this morning. I have these mornings where nothing else will do, and I mean that is cologne's job after all isn't it! So, Eau D'Hadrien. I had forgotten how much I liked this, a nice sharp cologne!

    Danny, the Autoportrait. Yeah. A pepper/iso e super/cedar vibe. Nice enough if you like that kind of thing, and I do actually, but not outstanding, a sort of less vulgar version of Marc Jacobs Bang!

    yep foustie, there's a general, half hearted reaction of 'meh' from me. as you said, lots of other frags out there that fit the description at a much better price. it's nice but nice doesn't cut it anymore. i am raising the bar (my own, personal) and will not rush into buying frags just because i 'like' them and they're 'nice'. i will have to be seriously attracted in order to spend my money. i have already planned for the rest of the year to only spend money on a 75ml bottle of cuir de russie (next week or so), 75ml bottle of coromandel (july), ormonde jayne man (august - my b'day), then before the year comes up amouage memoir, amouage epic, creed royal oud, nothing else, nothing cheap, nothing on sale (unless those are), nothing as bargain, nothing from e(vil)bay. that's it and i intend to stick to it, "cross my heart i hope to die". i will not take in consideration swaps, of course.

    Hi peoples! SOTD is L'Air de Nina Ricci. I won a full bottle a couple of nights ago at Odette Toilette's Superhuman Scents. All I had to do was name a scent molecule and they chose mine! It was so unexpected. I had never tried L'Air before, but fell in love with it instantly.

    No scent yet, will be in many scents again as I work through my sample pile.

    Good afternoon my dearest friends!

    I'm in Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien today, so I'm a fragrance twin with Foustie today . How fun!

    This eau de toilette smells so wonderful, so perfect. Too bad that it has such a short life on my skin, 2 hours is too little for me to enjoy it perfectly. And it stays so very close to my skin...



    Anyway, enjoy your afternoon!

    SotD has been Dune one of my long time loves. Current formulation which if sprayed with a heavy hand has great longevity.

    Loving the floral pix!

    I was curious where Twolf had gone to. Hope she is in Moroccan partaking of fragrant tagines. I've noted Bonsai is also on the missing list as well

    Agreed !. One of my all time favourites and the relative mediocrity of what has followed only rubber stamps the quality further. They should have deemed the discontinuation a criminal offence. Glad I still have enough to last a while yet.

    Well, I have been keeping my eye out but my perfume spending needed to be cut due to my hubby's hours being cut at work *sniffle*. But at least it pays the bills so I ain't complaining! I did see one I wanted but not in the budget at the moment. Bummer, as it looked like a very vintage-y one! Maybe before too long though, I will have one.

    Thanks for the pretty flower pictures guys!

    I joined Evangeline in ELdO Rossy del Palma, just the right about of sass to be had in a rose scent. I like that!
    Later I wore Robert Piguet's new Bois Noir. I think it's going to be very successful for both men and women,
    And tonight, I found a tiny bottle of L'Artisan Mure et Musc parfum. It's confusing with the edt, then the "Extreme", which is really an edp. For a short while they did make a parfum or extrait. That's what I'm wearing tonight.

    Don Juan 09.jpg This Don Juan climber has the deepest red roses of all I grew. I think it's perfect for Rosy de Palma.
