Good morning ! - how was the evening at Kew Gardens, G ?
SotD is Creed Original Vetiver.
Happy Birthday JaimeB

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
SOTD is Shalimar, best to all!
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
Vintage Mitsouko edt, a lovely gift from a smoking hot basenoter. This formulation reminds me of horses nuzzling you on an autumn morning, there is a kind of a hay note, and then there's that that funkiness that hits you in the back of the throat, all wrapped up in a smooth sort of peach fuzz that makes it all alright. Perfection.
"Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
Wearing my lovely Chanel Coromandel today....Superb! Hope everyone has a lovely day!
Hello all. Annick Goutal Myrrhe Ardente.
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

SotD - two sprays of Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford (from a sample)
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
Sampling Muguet Blanc from the VC&A Extraordinaire collection. Starts off with a pretty nice l-o-v note, given that this is an impossible note these days. However, it gives way all too soon to a sweetart accord that some refer to as "peony". Not for me, the green blast is enjoyable in the opening but the "peony" here just makes me crave the far more realistic Pivoine Rose by Ava Luxe.
Have a great day, gang!
The nose wants what it wants!
Sounds like you had a fabulous time, G.
SotD is By Kilian Back to Black.
Have a great day!
Salut mes amis!
Daim Blond again(from a rapidly dwindling 8ml sample) - loving it's soft, haughty,
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
Afternoon all. SOTD was AP Strip - and very nice it was too. Although I expect that wasn't the reaction AP were looking for ...
Avignon for me, today.
Have a nice afternoon

Lady M, love the photo!!
G, it sounds like you had a fantastic night. I'm going to have to check out the rhubarb scent. I wonder if that might be a good early spring fragrance, for when I start to get a yearning for the smell of growing things but it seems too early for my full-on spring/summer Big White Florals .... That tends to be when I reach for Une Fleur de Cassie... Hmmmm. I sense the need for another sample purchase.
Quarry, love the truck. With those new-fangled options (like shoulder belts and airbags) , I'll bet your insurance goes down, too.
RHM, it sounds like things are progressing nicely. I'm so happy for you!
It's overcast, grey, and chill today. So I happily pulled out the lovely, warming Ambre Russe. I'm so ready for my autumn/winter fragrance line-up. Woo hoo!
Good morning- first post!
I'm starting my day in Tokyo Milk's Le Petit. Snuggly violet and vanilla for a sweater dress kind of day.
Everyone's so classy today! I'm greeting this fall day with something funky and even a bit adolescent, Ralph Hot, a "breakfast gourmand" that does go really well with a hot cuppa joe. Good day, all!
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!

I just have to say I LOVE that picture of Anita Eckberg! LOL I'm a man and due to my interest in some femme fragrances I'm wearing Shalimar EDP for the first time and I can't keep my wrist away from my nose!
Welcome, Katesonskates! Welcome, I say!
Hey, Extreme, if you wanna smell rhubarb, gimme your addy and I'll send you a samp of L'Artisan's D'humeur Jalouse, which is a real novelty.
RHM, what kind of work are you shadowing, if you don't mind telling us? Today our daughter is shadowing a professional organizer who's dealing with a hoarder. I expect to hear interesting observations when she gets home.
The Las Vegas BN meet-up has me feeling the magnetism that is you people. Magnetic hugs al-l-l-l-l-l around
From my regular rotation: Jaisalmer -- gees, how I love this. Not a note to shy away from anywhere in its development. Comforting, but not so boringly mellow as to put a person to sleep.

DK Gold edp for me today. Love to everybody.
