    I know a lot of people don't like this but on my skin all I get is a "honey" note. My other half really likes it and it's at her request I'm wearing Pure Malt today.

    I may not be young, beautiful, and bored—I'm sure I'm one out of three!—but I will be taking on middle schoolers who are, so vintage Miss Balmain it is.

    On Twitter someone asked if anyone was counting how many times we were down this year. Well, someone was: 11 times and 19 days.

    Irresponsible and immature, at least, all this down time.

    Good morning, everyone!

    This morning's scent-- on my right arm only-- is JM Blackberry & Bay (cologne layered over the body cream, from samples, to test longevity.)

    Yesterday we visited the mall that has Crabtree & Evelyn and I was interested to see that they have a new version of Evelyn Rose out now.

    The bottle is radically different in style, but the scent is also significantly reformulated. Bergamot and amber are notes listed for this new version, which were not in the prior version of Evelyn Rose (2003-2011)

    From the website:
    "Fragrance: A heart of uniquely scented Evelyn Rose petals and peach nectar, surrounded by an elegant jasmine and violet accord with accents of bergamot and sensuous amber."

    When the base notes kick in, there is a bit of spiciness. The scent has greater complexity and longevity than the earlier version of Evelyn Rose. The fragrance is nothing like the original Evelyn (1993-2003).

    When my daughter smelled it on me, she initially thought I was wearing Rosa Alba 1842 from Anthropologie-- and it does smell like that, until the base notes kick in. I thought there might be an aquatic note initially but now I think it was just the bergamot creating that impression.

    I will not be buying this new version of Evelyn Rose, but I can see where it might appeal to many.

    Price is $60 for 50 mls of edp. Link to the C&E website for the edp:
    http://www.crabtree-evelyn.com/eng/p...e_parfum?79776

    They also have a sturdy (heavy) metal compact with a perfume solid, the lid of which swivels to open the compact. This comes in a cute little cloth bag. But the price reflects the packaging, not the value of the solid-- $40 for a non-refillable 1.2 g compact is over the top, IMO. I think the compact may appeal to collectors of perfume compacts, but otherwise the price is not worth it.

    Link to compact:

    Also, everyone, you may wish to bookmark the following Basenotes temporary site which we can use any time BN goes down; it was set up in July, but I think only a few of us knew about it.

    You will have to register on that site to post, but just use your regular BN username and we'll all know who you are.

    Oh, my goodness, I missed you all! You know, I had found the alternate BN board mentioned by 30R but then forgot about it. Will certainly remember to bookmark it today!
