    Good Evening,

    Hello to katesonskates and southerngardens
    Since Larimar officially declared it 'a Jicky Day', I've done my duty and spritzed some extrait tonight.

    Be well, everyone.

    Welcome, kateonskates! Adorable username!

    Welcome to you, too, southerngardens! I understand what you are going through- the same happened to me when I first sniffed Shalimar as a young girl. Still sniff myself constantly while wearing it to this day! Makes a great masculine, as mikeperez and many other BN men will attest. Enjoy your wrist-sniffin'!

    Have moved on to a sample of Miss Balmain. Waaay more "me" than my earlier sample!

Also got my nostrils on Xerjoff's Irisss for the first time (*wow*).
    The hit of the evening was Aedes de Venustas' rhubarby scent - went down a storm with the audience. Perhaps not altogether surprising.
    Went on to a pub afterwards with a friend to round-off the night. Couldn't have asked for more ! Well, apart from some more sleep, that is
    Wonderful!

    Monegal Ambra De Luna today.

    Azuree last night that lasted past the morning shower. I love that crazy thing's drydown! What unexpected softness after that long toughie opening.

    This afternoon it's Fendi Palazzo -- Tuesday situations require a somewhat subdued, easily pleasant fragrance, but I wanted to be autumnal and patchouli louche too.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I am sort of laughing at how probably few to no one else thinks of Azuree as having a soft drydown. I just do one spray! And also, Palazzo autumnal? The evocation of oranges and browns and Halloween candy was the thought. Oh perfume descriptions and their stupefying subjectivity!

    Just came back from the BN meetup in Vegas.
    Wow, I am completely overwhelmed by smells, sounds, moving machines, cigarette smoke and neon lights. This was my first time in Vegas, I would never go except for the BNers -- and the sniffing and meeting was fabulous. I thought of Quarry.
    And Al Gae and I were thinking of PerfumedLady and talking about her -- did your ears burn?
    And yours, TWolf -- Redneck Perfumisto and I were saying hey to you virtually.

    Anyway, two ambers for me today -- VV Ambra Mediterranea and Mitza by Dior. How could I not know this stuff before? from a dab Mitza was adorable. I crave more! more Mitza!
