    Just got a bottle of Ted Lapidus Silk Way in the mail today -so of course that's what I applied immediately.Smells soft -almost a perfect dupe for Barbara Bui Le Parfum . So what to layer over ........hmm.. I love powerhouses so its not a matter of having one it's CHOOSING! Arrrrgh! Limited time .. I guess I'll overspray YSL Opium -it should be loud enough.Don't you think?

    Thank you for the idea! I belive we already have a "Day of Roses" (will check it though) but I'll definitely add the white flower idea to the list.

    Right, what's tomorrow then? Easy peasy, House of Guerlain. Habit Rouge maybe... or Jicky. I'll take a look at my stats and see which ones I've neglected of late.

    Edit: Mitsouko - last worn 6th Sep 2011 - for shame, devilcat! Will give it some air tomorrow.

    What about a day of Italian perfumery? English perfumery? Arabic?

    Small perfume companies?

    Perfumes with a color in the name?

    I put some Jardins de Bagatelle on
    first thing. Not their most popular fragrance,
    but it puts me in the mood for Spring.

    Started off sampling Rose Barbare, not for me. Will be showering and switching to Shalimar sooner rather than later.

    Kewart, I've never smelled Jardins de Bagatelle. The Guide says it's similar to Eternity, do you find this to be true?

    I thought today would be the perfect day to test one of a few Guerlain samples I have not tried yet. Les Voyages Olfactifs Moscow was the winner.

    Notes (from the BN directory): pine needles, absinthe, plum, redcurrant, bergamot, lemon, jasmine, tonka bean, sandalwood, vanilla, white musk

    Pine needles? Absinthe? Really? I don't smell a drop of anything remotely green, but your mileage may vary. It starts off a very candy-ish fruity/floral, which is really not my style. It settles into a pretty drydown with hints of sandalwood and tonka bean toning down the fruit. It rates "ok" in my book.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    oh myyyyy...we need a few more G syncs IMO. Maybe broken out by time periods? The early claasic years, the war years, midcentury to LVMH takeover- the present.

    As I am going to a violin concert tonight, I am greatly torn as to which of my G-babies to bring out into society
    Leaning towards Philtre D'amour. Will report back later.

    I wore Shalimar edc for Guerlain scent synch. Earlier in the week I wore Shalimar Eau Legere from an old decant. I used to love that version, but this time it feels a bit sterile and flat next to the edc. The edc seems more alive and dimensional. On my skin it is very long lasting for an eau.

    S, do you know which Eau Legere you have? The gold juice or the blue juice? I find the gold (which I happen to own) much more satisfying but I must admit I only wear it in warm weather, I find that in cool weather it just sort of sits there, like you describe. That lemon-cupcake accord really comes alive when my skin is warm. The Eau de Cologne, well you all know that is my absolute favorite version of Shalimar...although I must admit that my new 'vintage' bottle of EdC that I just cracked open about a month ago, seems to have aged a bit too much. The top notes are a little limp...not like I remember my last vintage bottle smelling. The one I have is from the 1960's so I know that I can't complain (that's 50 years ago) so when I'm finished with this bottle I might search for 1980's stock.

    Lilybelle (or anyone else) do you like Eau de Shalimar?

    Mike, mine is the blue one (I think). It's an old decant, so I was wondering whether it might have been losing something, especially that lemon-cupcake feeling that I remember. The citrus notes are the first to go. Then I thought it might be my skin, as everything is different now on my skin. Hormones. The thing about buying vintage is: even if it has been sealed and protected you just can't expect 40 and 50 year old edc to smell the same as it did the day it was bottled. Some fragrances age well, and others don't. But even the ones that do age well don't smell fresh. I don't know Eau de Shalimar. I think that is one I never got a chance to sample. I love my eau de cologne because even though it is relatively new (gold foil box from early 00s) it still has that range of facets and complexity that I don't get in the smoother, more modern versions of Shalimar. I suppose I should just sample them on their own merits as separate fragrances rather than expecting them to measure up to an old dream of a memory. I should probably sample as many Shalimars as possible in a side by side sniffathon. That would be interesting.

    The VERY FIRST version of Shalimar I ever smelled was 1980's Eau de Cologne, in the black/gold foil box. So, I know what you're talking about. It has a 'bite' from the bergamot that initially (when I first smelled it) I hated but then later I came to love. That 'bite' is missing from my 1960's Eau de Cologne. Although, the dry down on this 60's stuff is way more complex, just like the vintage Parfum (from the 1960') that I own - because back then it was Mysore Sandalwood. What a difference.

    I'm going to PM you - I think you need to smell the 'gold' or 'vintage' Shalimar Eau Legere and Eau de Shalimar. I love both, for different reasons, and at different times throughout the year.

    Comfort blanket scent. I'm torn between leather and food - perhaps go for a combination: Bulgari Black. Plus it's my go-to scent when nothing else beckons. Traversee du Bosphore also a contender.

    ^I bet Black does make a good blankie, devilcat! I tend to think of it as edgy but it really is cozy and comforting, too. I can see why it's your dependable one.

    My comfort blankie is Shalimar, which I also wore last Friday for Guerlain day. Just settin' the world on fire with my originality lately!

    Oh, guys, aren't we just the most comfy, cozy bunch today?!

    I was tempted to go with Bois des Iles today, but since I wear it so often for all sorts of other reasons, I went with one that I do mostly think of as comfort - like a book by the fireside with a nice glass of red type scent - that type of comfort. SL Douce Amere My little sharp then sweet blankie.

    My comfort scent is surprise, suprise... Shalimar! However, today I decided to go with something else which I have hardly ever worn before: the last drops of my Farnesiana decant.

    Last week I was syncing in the gorgeous Jicky. Another scent I should really spray on more often.
