    The blackberry vodka sounds wonderful!! My mother used to infuse vodka with fruit: pineapple, and also raspberries, which give it a lovely pink color. I imagine the blackberries will tinge the vodka with a lovely wild berry flavor and color.

    Welcome back, Mountainear!

    I'm trying some of the new Habanita edp, thanks to a Basenotes friend who sent me some to try. Honestly, I think it is lovely. I love the original, both the current form of edt and also the vintage edt, which seems a tad smokier and darker, but maybe my decant was just aged. Some fragrances do age well, you know. But this new one...I don't think it suffers in the modern interpretation at all. It is truly lovely, diffuse and more transparent, but still identifiably Habanita, and very very wearable for today. I think it smells sexy. It is a youthful Habanita, but sophisticated. Each will have his/her own preference, but I really like this one. Well done, Molinard!

    Congratulations, Kiliwia!

    Hey again!

    I'm in a big soft cloud of Shalimar Parfum Initial for the afternoon.

    Okay, good to know - I'm sure that'll give us lots more options!

Interesting how adjectives that get repeated about a fragrance seem to stick, even when they don't totally fit.
    Thanks, and thanks for saying so! I'm a firm believer that it's generally not the perfume that's too strong, loud or brash, anyway - the heavy hand of the wearer is usually to blame. This is how perfectly nice perfumes get bad reputations ...Poison somehow managed to recover from it, but poor Giorgio was forever ruined by one too many suffocating, inelegant and over-zealous applications.

    Yummy! Well, we didn't have quite as many as y'all so I went with the cobbler (which is, I think, rather the same thing as a crumble) and saved enough for some blackberry liqueur, or "bounce" as we call it. I'm giving what Tony's dubbed "liquid preserves" as Christmas gifts this year - I have homemade Limoncello, Peach and Satsuma "Brandy", Cherry Bounce and now Blackberry Bounce to add to the colorful array steeping in the hall closet!

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    I'm testing PdN Kiss Me Tender today. Fluffy soft and marshmallow sweet to start, the opening top notes don't really hint at the rest of the fragrance ... it's more complex and the heliotrope is darker than I expected. I'm really enjoying it today.

    top notes: orange flower, bitter almond, star anise,
    middle notes: cinnamon, cloves, ylang-ylang, heliotrope
    base notes: vanilla, musk, opoponax

    hugs to all ...
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    LOL, we're 90 miles from GF but I could have met you there. I had it my head you were going the last of Sept, so when you said you were going to be gone a couple of days, it didn't register. Wow, you put on a lot of miles in a very short amount of time, no wonder you were tired when you got home.

    Right. We were planning the last weekend of September, but my work schedule has changed so it was the only possible time.

    Lilybelle and I will be Scent Twins, as I am currently drenching myself in the delicious new Habanita Eau de Parfum: The very first re-form I have ever smelled that out-does the original. I *LOVE* it. So comforting. So cuddly and sensual. So....Impeccable.

    *Also* So very much more unisex than the original: It is a bit dryer, and has a suave powdery quality to it that any gentleman could pull off and come out smelling perfectly masculine and approachable. It truly is a Masterwork. If the nonsense at Guerlain & Caron only could be this smooth.....

    Yay! I have been loving it this afternoon. It really is easy to wear, very "cuddly and sensual" as you say. I will probably have another spritz soon as a top up for the night.

    I just cracked the nut as to why I love this so much, in a PM to Lilybelle: It reminds me so very much of the provincial cafes in Uni towns--where--after lessons--we boys would tear off our uniforms, put on the obligatory OTHER uniform of rolled up levi's, black leather jacket, grease up our hair, and go drink panaches, smoke our cigarettes, and play "Flipper" in these old cafe's with their tangerine plastic interiors from the 70's--and bring our own cassette tapes of, say, Boys Don't Cry by the Cure--this, of course, was the early 80's--it was important to be seen in town looking cool out of our stupid scratchy "Catho" uniforms--we all hated them--and so we'd go and stand around playing flipper. "La Frime" we'd call it--the word that meant: "Stand around looking Cool." These cafes--they smelled like Habanita!!!!! I thinks that's why I love it so much......

    So you had an "aha" moment, MdM. I don't know why I love it...it doesn't remind me of anything...but I find it very skin scenty in texture as well as scent.
