    Larimar, Douce Amere is one of just a few Lutens that have escaped my attention and testing. I have that on my list to try!

    I'm house twins with Mike today, as I've spent last night and this morning testing the entire Slumberhouse line (including the new re-formulations of Kere and Ore. These are *powerhouse* fragrances, folks. With my love of big fragrances, it takes a lot to get me to olfactory fatigue, but trying all 10 of these in 24 hours has been a bit exhausting. They are, however, very interesting.

    Three of them really speak to me -- Baque, Norne, and Jeke. I managed to score a bottle of the discontinued Baque, and I'm thrilled about it. Jeke is a wonderful, masculine leather -- it's the leather I wanted Cuir Mauresque to be, with the smoke and spice more pronounced in the top and heart.

    But Norne is the real jewel. This is the first green fragrance I love, lots of woods and balsam, but very nicely balanced with incense, moss, and damp earth. Just wonderful.

    A 4th -- Pear and Olive -- is a complete departure from the rest of the line. It's really light and lovely, perfect for summer. The olive smooths out the sweetness of the pear and, on me, causes the fragrance to feel very clean and fresh but without smelling like laundry or white musk.

    So far, we ladies don't seem to have given much attention (if any) to the Slumberhouse line -- all of the reviews have been authored by men, and most of the threads about Slumberhouse have been posted in the men's forum.

    These are quite aggressive fragrances, so perhaps they don't appeal to a lot of women, but for anyone who really likes big, heavy-hitter fragrances (teardrop??), these are definitely worth a try.

    Climate change has been rather kind to us. We have just a layer of pretty, white snow, yet the temps are way above normal, along with sunny skies. Shame we're not getting undroughty though. We need more precip.

    Kiliwia, I hope the doc visits are all productive and positively preemptive.

    Guerlain L’Heure de Nuit
    I sprayed this on paper last night and was repeatedly drawn to it ... heliotrope? No, it’s really amaretto. Yum. This afternoon I applied it to skin, and it’s really small in radiance. I get a hint of a medicinal note in addition to the almond. Then I was reminded of Guerlain Bois d’Armenie. Don’t have any of that around for comparison.

    The usual rash of ???
    Do I like it? YES
    Would I wear it semi-often? MAYBE
    Is it worth the money? PROBABLY NOT.

    The original is more original, duh.

    The weather here is unseasonably warm, too. I'm really worried about the drought and hoping spring does not come early. I heard yesterday that we need between 16 and 20 inches of rain (or 96 to 100 inches of snow) to break the exceptional drought that's afflicting 3/4 of my state. I hope we get more snow or rain soon.

    Kiliwia, I hope today is less busy for you.

    Larimar, you did get quite the haul. Very impressive.

    Now that I'm done testing, SotA is SSS Fig Tree.

    Thank you, ((PerfumedLady)) - it's so nice to be missed, and it's even nicer when you say so, lol! You smell quite beautiful, too.

    Ooh, knightowl, I am thrilled that it's not cold, was just about to post that it is beautiful here.

    Body Shop Dreams Unlimited today, I doused well enough that it's still around, if I put nose to wrist. I really do like the jalapeno edge to this, I am kind of a sucker for pepper in general, chilehead and it smells good to me in perfumes.

    White Sea by Micallef
    (Thanks, socalwoman! It arrived yesterday!)

    My goodness. This one is definitely different. It reminds me so much of Creed's Love in Black. that nuttiness. It must be orris root. There's definitely patchouli too. But I don't mind it.

    Does it conjure visions of "sea." Hell no. But it does smell very interesting and very distinctive -- certainly not something Katy Perry would tout.
