    Good Morning,

    Uncle Serge's Cuir Mauresque.

    I owe a couple of people PMs; so far my attempts have been thwarted by the gremlins in the BN system. My apologies.

    Have a lovely Tuesday.

    No SotD yet. I seem to be languishing as well, scent wise.

    I'm in Caron Infini, 70s parfum, and a light spray of pdt ...so lushly fresh with glorious aldehydes, hyacinth and narcissus, and smelling particularly radiant at the moment.

    Y'all have a great day!

    Yep, I agree. I have never been complimented on my Jicky outings. Wait... once at work. It was rather summery and about 6-7 hours into my wearing. It was the EdP and all I perceived was very faint occasional whiffs of dirty vanilla. The ladies 2-3 metres away said they smelled a very discreet yummy 'aura' and wanted to know what it was (I always say 'oh, something Guerlain' as it made no sense explaining them what it was). BUT I also remember once on the train... a woman joining at one station went straight to her friend opposite of me and meant 'duh, it's rather stinky in here!'. There was an 'ungroomed' man close to us, so they faulted him. I am pretty sure, I was the stinker.

    We smell GREAT, Mike! That's all that matters.

    Good morning, good smelling people.

    Datura Blanche. I smell good. Assertively. Also a black pencil skirt (in which I look like an actual pencil, with my, um, minimalist curves) and my christmas presents, one for each foot, let's see if the link works...

    leopard-pump2.jpg

    (ETA)feeling all clean and pretty, a distinct upgrade from last night, when I had not one, but two violently puking children to deal with. They seemed fine this morning and are off to school, it is wierd. They must have both eaten something bad (these 2 go to the same school so lunch seems a likely culprit).

    You kids are funny this morning.

    Yesterday I wore En Avion, and while the early stages are rough for me, the dry down I reached later was worth the "work." It smells just the way the real world--the wise, mature, beautiful world--should smell. Shouldn't we be evolving toward finer and finer things?

    Today it's Van Cleef & Arpels Gardenia Petale, which I was contemplating yesterday. It's pretty, flowery, syrupy, not so green as I might prefer, slightly tuberosey, has good projection, no rough points, very feminine, and it's not cheap-smelling except for its level of sweetness, which in and of itself is not a cheap quality, but I associate yummy sweetness with Bath and Body Works-type products.

    It rained and thundered last night. Today it's just like spring. Tomorrow we're expecting 3 inches of snow. Remember when weather used to be boring and predictable?

    Good evening all!

    Q you smell gorgeous. Gardenia Petale is one of my favourite gardenias, but yes it is on the sweet & creamy side; no blue cheese or mushrooms in sight.

    My SOTD on this wet & windy day was 1000 Kisses by Gorilla Perfumes. For this evening l'm going to pull a sample from freddie's latest goody bag, but l haven't decided which one yet.

    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".

    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!

    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!
