    KarmaLee, I adore Calèche. You smell delicious.

    I'm wearing Chantilly edt by Houbigant this afternoon. I can't help it, my hand automatically reaches for it, and it never ever disappoints, so I wear it all the time now. I enjoy the bright citrussy beginning, the granny powdery florals, and then the vanilla/benzoin drydown. It is supposed to have a leather note, but it is sooo subtle. It is a very delicate leather, almost imperceptible.

    I am not in sync right now (but I already know what I will sync later for tonight) trying another Dior sample, Leather Oud. There are very few leathers that I like (two, to be precise) and very few ouds that I like (not sure how many yet) but this one I can do. It's a serious leather and I do like it. Score!

    Get well (((TWolf)))

    30 Roses, congratulations! 9,000 posts, OMG.

    Oh, I too adore Chantilly. I only have a bit of very vintage of this one. But I adore it.

    Feel better Wolfie!
    Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.

    It's a known fact I strongly object to Tom Ford's overt print ads.
    So much so, I won't purchase a full size bottle of any of his fragrances.

    However, he is a very talented guy. The scents which have tempted me the most (and by this I mean to spring for a FB) are: Absolute Amber, Moss Breches, Italian Cypress, Bois Marocain and Noir de Noir.
    Considering there are so many of his I really enjoy, I guess it's a money saving position I'm taking.

    Good evening and happy wine o'clock for those raising a glass.

    I struggled to think of an ad that a) I knew and b) disliked but love the scent. Middle of the night when I woke for a worry I distracted my brain by thinking of perfume ads and thought of the pretentious mini film starting Nicole Kidman and directed by Baz Luhrman. So scent of the day had be the very wonderful No5

    Thank you all for your good thoughts and prayers for my Mom. She's out of cardiac ICU and in a regular room. Everything is going well, her doctors are really please with the surgery.

    Cello, I love the balloon videos. St Louis had a balloon festival recently. It was the first one I ever attended. No video but I got some great shots.

    Hello again!

    I'm in Van Cleef & Arpels Birmane for the afternoon. I guess I'm out of sync now since I don't mind this ad ...although after taking another look, I doubt it won any awards for being one of the best.




    Ugh, RHM - I agree, those vulgar Tom Ford for Men ads are the absolute worst!! I rationalized my purchase of Noir de Noir by explaining to myself that it's from another line altogether, lol.

    I'm on bed rest for most of the week, staying with family during (it's no big thing, just routine). My mother thought it would cheer me up to coat the guest bed linens in the vintage Shalimar I recently bought her. Nothing I would ever do, but it's certainly one way to celebrate perfume. If only I had a more decadent attitude like she does. I'm in SMN Potpourri, trying to pay attention to work while bed-ridden. How very sub-Proustian ... 3-2-1 to switching over to reading or movies and saying to hell with it. Hope you're all having nice Fridays.

    ((RHM)) Just read your post about your mom's stent and Sofie's headache. It's a stressful time for your family. Get some extra sleep if you can.

    ((Wolfie)) I feel for you! I hate colds. Get lots of fluids-- chicken soup is always good!-- and don't do more work than you absolutely must.

    My husband and I slept in until 11:30 this morning! (I got up to see my daughter off to school but then hit the sack again.) Sometimes you just need it.

    Thanks for the all congrats on 9000 posts-- Jon noticed it before I did! Every time I reach one of these milestones I look around the house and imagine how much neater it would all be if I spent less time online!


    I'm wearing a scented lotion sample of L'Ombre Dans L'Eau. It's highly perfumed, as far as lotions go, and very true to the scent of the liquid fragrance. Really nice scent for fall weather. I like this more than I like JM Blackberry & Bay and I seem to reach for both on the same sort of days.

    Oh anomie, you too? Well, it's good that you have your mother taking care of you, with or without the vintage Shalimar, lol ...I actually think that's a very sweet gesture. I hope you feel better real soon!

    Thanks, Evangeline. I'll try to enjoy the break but do tend to get restless. And a get well soon to Twolf too!

    And yeah, mom's adorable like that! She must have used up a quarter of the bottle. Like many other women and men, I got my love of perfume from my mom. She has the best nose of anyone I've ever known. Used to try to hide smoking cigarettes from her as a teen: hours and a shower later, "I smell ... ash and smoke." One day I wore Habanita and told her what it was. Then weeks later and paces away "Oh, that must be Habanita again." I should just give up to the master and give her all my perfumes.

    That's good news to hear, RHM. May she continue to steadily improve. More hugs for you, take good care of yourself through this time.

    Congratulations 30 Roses! What a milestone! Thank you for all you do for us and BN!

    No.5 EDP tonight. Guess I am still in sync. As Alityke's post reminded me, I am really no fan of the un-lifelike Nicole Kidman. Do love the Estella Warren ads that came before hers and Audrey Tatou's, which came after. Chanel really redeemed themselves in my eyes by hiring Ms. Tatou. But those Kidman ads- just, no.
    The nose wants what it wants!

    A little bit of (vintage formula) Samsara. Forgot I had it. It was hidden behind something else. Ha!

    Happy weekend.
    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    RHM, I hope your mom is doing well after her stent placement and that your daughter can stay pain free, migraines are the worst.

    Anomie et Ivoire, hope you are feeling better, being stuck in bed is no fun either.

    Hey, everybody!
    I just spoke to my Mom and she's doing great. The best part was her telling me how my brother and sisters had everyone laughing all day long. I know that made her very happy.

    Sofie is recovered from the migraine from yesterday. We have a big warm up then cool down Saturday night, into Sunday. These climate shifts sometimes trigger her migraines, so we'll take precautions, as best we can.

    My honey is home, the kitty cat is not hiding from us anymore. Everything is good.

    SOTE is Narciso Rodriguez edp & edt, layered together.
