    It's true - I don't find it lasts terribly long on my skin. 4-5 hours, perhaps. Still, I love it.

    Couldn't commit this morning..
    Sampled Montale:Jasmin Full (got a slight plastic vibe from my sample), Dior: Amber nuit (Masculine references for me here - they say scent is most powerful a memory trigger. If I ever pass a man wearing this I would have to follow him!), Guerlain: London (bit disappointed with this on first impressions)... So I showered and am sampling

    Mon precieux nectar Guerlain ...yep this is lovely....and guerlain have apparently reduced this greatly in price. Looking for the almond, so far it's distinctly there but as supporting player and coming forward. Nice.

    Good morning! Jon, thanks for the lovely music. Three cheers to your Queen.

    SOTD is L'Artisan Parfumeur Bois Farine which I find enormously soothing and easy to wear even with its offbeat character.

    Wish you all a very good day. xoxo

    OJ Tiare extrait today from a sample. Perfect for sitting under the awning in the rain, relaxing with just my own company. I have struggled with OJ fragrances before. Either I've been anosmic or they have simply disappeared on my skin but this, well this is glorious! Thank you Cacio.

    I woke up this morning to the sight and sound of a soft rain through the open window. I love waking up like that - gently. It has been so cool here lately, not that I'm complaining. We have a long summer to go. Some vintage Eau Arpege suits my mood this morning.

    Perfect music to honor the Queen, Jon.

    Smell Bent Prairie Nymph today. This is probably the only scent that I'm actually careful applying, a tiny spritz to one wrist, press them together, wipe the applicator at the nape of the neck, that's it. This is so loud that I kind of feel like I should be lifting it out of the perfume box with tongs, wearing the heavy gloves and safety glasses. But it's oh so lovely and I do love having something so intensely scented, nothing else acts like this on me

    Good morning friends. Today I am in a little dab of some Cambodian Oudh, with a squirt of Eau de Cartier layered on top. Neither lasts very long on my skin so I will probably change up after work. This is a pic of me and my best buddy. Have a great day.

    Good luck with the Dr. visit, Kiliwia, hope all is fine.

    And welcome to gimmegreen! We have loads of fun, glad you finally de-lurked!

    Sampling Montale's Chypre Fruite today. Those of you who like/love this scent- please skip my rant!
    Instant hate with this one! Hard to find a chypre I can't say anything nice about about but this is it. Screechy, shrill flowers & fruit over a rather thin, insipid base. Reminds me of Ralph Lauren's Pure Turquoise, which is also a screecher on me but is the better scent, I think. The Lauren at least has some chypre bite to it in the base. Wow, those Montales- they're either love or hate for me so far! Will be a two shower day, I believe.

    Quarry, same to you! Your thoughts were so spot on for me that my teeth nearly fell out of my head when I read them! I have wandered around the yard year after year sniffing my purple iris plants wondering why the only phrase that will come to mind is "grapey lilies". We are not crazy.

    On to happier sampling this afternoon- Amouage Memoir Woman. The first from the house to really click with me, so excited!
    Have thought so many were beautiful, just not me. Dia should have been the one but wasn't. Memoir is the first I really love. Still, whether or not I need more is yet to be decided.

    1000 Flowers Reglisse Noir -- alas, this does not grow on me after the disappointing first try. Licorice is not that prominent at all, it is all about fairly unexciting warm woods on this skin which is bad choice in our 90F heat. I expected the overall minty feeling pointed out by the reviewers in the Directory, but "there might be bugs on some of your mugs".... you know..... Another one not for me -- uhm -- more for you?
