    Good afternoon everyone! I've been lurking for the past week after being gone with a health issue that kept me nauseous and not wanting to smell ANYTHING!

    Today I'm drowning in sweetness after a lovely ByKilian rep urged me to try Beyond Love and Sweet Redemption together. It's actually kind of lovely about 4 hours into it.

    Missed you all, people who won't consider me "strangely obsessed with perfume".

    Happy Birthday to Mama Rodgers! I know her boy will make her feel special; hope you all have a lovely evening!

    Great to see you, elizrj! Hope this means we'll be seeing more of you now! So sorry to hear of your health troubles, hope all is well for you. Welcome back!

    Sampling Teint de Neige today. Oh, I love me some powder! I'd buy every well made scent in this style if I could afford to. Yep, this one is beautiful!

    Happy Birthday Jon's mum, have a lovely evening! (Still sniggering at "trumping")

    PerfumedLady isn't TdN just the prettiest powder? I am usually neutral to powders, but this one is something else.

    House twins with fragranceman88 and gandhajala in Chanel 31 Rue Cambon. I think I see now why it gets so much lovin'...juicy bergamot, the sheerest Chanel 'tchouli', and very pretty flowers...what can go wrong?

    Have a wonderful day-evening everyone !

    Good afternoon, oh fragrant ones.

    I was thinking about 31 Rue Cambon as my SotD, then I was thinking about getting a bottle, and it stayed only in my head. In fact, I applied Jimmy's Garner James Jupiter to Juno which blossoms in the heat and becomes introverted in the cold, and it is behaving all right on this skin today. Mr.T's doctor called -- he will be discharged this Thursday. I am having an afternoon off today and a day off tomorrow -- cleaning, Chinese from frozen and Joanne Harris' newest Peaches for Father Francis. She is a girl very much after my taste, almost like Evangeline.

    I decided against Shalimar edc and went with vintage Miss Dior instead, inspired by Nairn's thread on the Fragrance Industry board. Miss Dior was once a signature scent for me - eons ago when a scent like this was considered an appropriate gift for a young girl. Young girls today would run screaming in horror. It smells so sweet and delicious to me. I enjoy revisiting the oldies when I can. Cannot remove nose from wrist.

    Jon, I hope your mother enjoys her birthday. I don't see how she can't, spending it in your company. Enjoy!

    Twolf, I didn't know she had a new one out. I must check out Peaches and Father Francis! Yay! I'm excited about that. And yay that Mr. T. is coming home soon! And yay for some down time for you! So yay, you!

    Hey y'all -

    I'm in Knowing for the afternoon.




    Oh, PLady - Teint de Neige is a favorite of mine, too ...simply the most indulgent, luxurious and elegant powder perfume there is, imo, and definitely not baby powder. I used it exclusively as a bedtime scent for about five years, and I might have overdone it as I have a hard time wearing it outside of the bedroom now. I actually put it away for a while hoping to revisit it one day soon without that particular association lulling me to sleep, lol! It's just soooo beautiful and comforting and serene and peaceful ....ahhh. The body cream, btw, is as good as if not better than the edp ...actually, if I had to choose just one I'd go with the body cream. I'm usually a sucker for creams anyway, but this one is truly heavenly.

    lilybelle - Oh, how I love Miss Dior, especially the old stuff! I think you smell vivacious and sexy and I'm pleased to be so near you.

    Happy Birthday wishes to Jon's mom!

    My stars Wolfie, you're making me blush ...not sure I deserve such a fine compliment, but I'll have to check out those peaches, too! I'm so glad you're going to have MrT home soon - hug him lots, with one or two from me. And one or two for you, too.

    Hi all!
    SotD has been Joop! All About Eve EdP. I recently bought this one blind, along with Mistero di Roma Donna EdT(Biagiotti).
    Was very lucky - like Mistero very much, LOVE All About Eve.
