    Sampling again this evening with Creed Royal Oud.




    I had cautious optimism for this with it being a lighter interpretation, but alas no. Not only does it confirm my hypersensitivity to the stuff, it also rubber stamps my dislike. This is such a smooth composition - without the oud it would be a delight, though that would rather defeat the purpose . I'll let this run it's course but remain steadfastly oudphobic . Oh well, nothing ventured ....

    Nothing exciting here either... sampling Juozas Statkevicius tonight. It's been suggested to me when asking for an incense-vanilla combo. All I get is a dusty patchouli (the L'Ombre Fauve kind) and a nice incense note. Very one-dimensional and linear, not very exciting! It is snowing outside... please fast forward to end of March 15 degrees C springtime weather!

    It's Meals on Wheels delivery day for me, so I was up & out early. Starbucks French roast beans made at home with cream & a touch of honey.

    Good news on the job front, I will be full time within the next few months. Their vote of confidence humbles me!

    Scent wise, Tom Ford Amber Absolute (from a decant). We're still cold here, so I want to enjoy my heavy orientals a while longer.

    I agree wholeheartedly, I've had enough of winter. It's cold and windy today, but at least it's not snowing anymore. Tonight it's going to be down to 25 below zero again. I know we have another month of winter but I'd sure be happy if it could warm up a little. It's actually very beautiful outside with all the snow we received yesterday.

    Congrats, RHM!!

    No coffee or tea this morning, but you've all made it sound very delicious.

    Wearing Histoires de Parfums 1889 Moulin Rouge this afternoon, love the spicy rose in this one.





    Have a great day!

    Hello again!

    I'm now enjoying Ava Luxe's gentle Cashmere Musk on top of the musky iris drydown from my Prada this morning ...as soft and snuggley as a kitten in a warm blankie.


    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Hello everyone. Talking of kittens ... having trouble typing since one of the cats has fallen asleep on my right arm, pinning it to the keypad of the laptop. He weighs a ton - definitely not a kitten anymore...

    Please don't remind me how great Samsara was. I bought a bottle when it first came out and then threw it away half-full a couple of years later when I entered my fragrance wilderness period. What was I thinking!

    Anyways, today's scent of choice is La Petite Robe Noire edt from a sample courtesy of Boots. Fresher, sharper and greener than the edp, and without the initial artificial cherry-candy blast of the original - cherry is much more muted. Nice, very spring-like, puts me in mind of a tamer Angel Innocent.

    No perfume for me this afternoon after a scrub. Rather, aromatherapy scents of lavender essential oil and rosewater while I take a needed mini vacation (in my imagination).

    I'm in No.22 today, vintage EDC. Hugs to everyone!
    hello PerfumedLady,
    hehe yes.....the differences are huge....or to say the same as the difference from vintage Shalimar to the new Shalimar plus 30% more ...Shalimar at least retained the same calibre of the gun....lol...the new version is just huuuuge huge huge sillage monster....so synthetic (but not much more then lets say some Amouages nowdays).....i would like this vintage one is monster of that kind, but no its so much more natural, and close to skin scent after 4-5 hours for sure..if there was synthetic sandalwood in this vintage version it doesnt give itself off.....and it makes sense...natural jasmine and natural sandalwood are not loud

    i loved the new version but at some point but i got sick....and had to wash it...the drydown i could smell the next day on the clothes it is 5-8 times stronger then vintage! or longer lasting....

    tonite something 180 degrees different Tribute.........hmmmm it is so rich deep tobaco-leather-fruity scent....with base of Homage....and this is loud one! i think i put too much,one big drop ....sillage monster !

    Evangeline sooooooooo cute hehe

    Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere for tutoring this evening. It's pleasant and innocuous enough to not offend, pretty enough to please me. Good night!
