    Good morning.
    L'eau d'ambre for me this morning, from a sample- one of the very first niche fragrances I smelled, many years ago. It conjures up a very elegant and sensuous festive mood...
    Have a nice Sunday

    Profumo Saggio, where in IA are you? I am too, upper left corner, close to SD , MN and NE.

    Iodine, I have never commented: I love your attitude about the forthcoming Christmas gift from your mother (only she does not know about it yet) and you already testing it. Another fantastic fragrance from Pierre!

    Revillon Detchema. (1953 brought us quite a few masterpieces, has anyone ever noticed that?).

    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..."

    Aqua Allegoria Winter Delice by Guerlain



    I have to really be in the mood for this one, it's so dry and brittle (for a Guerlain) sometimes I feel like it's a room spray rather than a fragrance - but today it smells wonderful on my warm skin, and its really coming alive. I only wear it around the holidays, so of course the olfactory associations are also wonderful and fun.

    TWolf - Everytime I see anyone mention Detchema I think of you. I've never smelled it, but somehow it's become (in my mind) your scent.

    Good afternoon, all! Unseasonably warm here-- they predicted a wintry mix but it's 45º and just a little wet.

    I'm wearing C&E Lily of the Valley from the 1990s (two versions ago.)

    Oh, that sounds wonderful! I can certainly understand you miss it a great deal.
    I should add that the greenhouses aren't mine - I took the photos during my outing to Djurgården, more precisely at wonderful Rosendahl's Gardens where they have several greenhouses, two of which house a cafe. Lovely place and highly recommended if you ever visit Stockholm :-)

    Hello, Basenoters! Haven't been here in awhile and have missed y'all.

    SotD was Casmir by Chopard. Loved it, and had not worn it in some time. SotE is Kenzo Jungle Le Tigre. Smells great with the backdrop of this rainy evening.

    I have been to those greenhouses (many summers ago)...fascinating garden. I still remember smelling a field of lavender, blowing downstream towards us when we were walking around this place. We saw varieties of plants we've never ever seen in South Florida. Ray, the gardener in the house, was taking pictures all afternoon. Nice memories...

    carolina girl - nice to see you posting again.

    Tonight, I'm joining ExtremeK in the house of Slumberhouse in the deep, thick, syrupy:

    Sova by Slumberhouse



    The last drops from my sample. This scent conjures up little pieces of Eau Noire by Christian Dior, Sables by Annick Goutal and a little bit of that just-opened-the-outdoor-shed-door accord prominently featured in Greenbriar 1968 by CB I Hate Perfume - I'm pretty sure it's the hay that makes this one so magical and nostalgically evocative. When I spray it on I feel like I'm in someone else's house, somewhere comfortable...lived in, where you don't mind tracking dirt in or putting your feet up on the coffee table.

    Perusing the Slumberhouse website, it seems this scent is priced slightly higher than the others (my luck). Maybe it's because of it's strength - it wears like an extrait.

    Great to hear you have visited Stockholm and Rosendahl! And though it is a nice place during winter too, it sounds like you came at the best time to visit the gardens - summer.
