    Morning everyone,

    Tabac Blond today.
    Will brave the snow flurries in a bit and head into town. Eager to sniff Uncle Serge's new offering and to re-sniff 1932. Also have £30 credit for Harrods which is burning a hole in my pocket. I'm thinking chocolate.
    Have a great Saturday, folks.

    Chocs is always a good idea, G.! Let me know please what you think of the Serge in particular!
    Snowing like crazy here... approaching one foot and intensive snow forecast for tonight again... before it warms up and rains tomorrow! What a ***** mess! Never had so much snow in one winter here.
    Vega again.
    Hugs all around!

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Good morning! Everyone is smelling great today, some of my favorites in the mix.

    Teardrop, enjoy your weekend off and I hope they get your heating fixed, terrible time
    to be without heat.

    SotD is Oiro by Mona di Oiro, this is such a beautiful fragrance. If you love jasmine this
    should be on your test list. I'm hoping they rerelease her original fragrances, there's a
    couple I've learned to love and wish I'd bought them when I had the chance.





    Wishing everyone a relaxing weekend.

    The gas man has been, & l think he finally got to the bottom of the problem. The place is lovely & warm now, woohoo! Just as well, because l've seen a few little flakes of snow falling today.

    l've just been decanting a few samples into atomisers, & so my SOTD is a mixture of things, mostly incense & roses, mmmmm..

    Edit; thanks Kiliwia, l just saw your post!

    I'm packing up boxes this weekend (I am MOVING next week!!) so I need all the (((bear hugs))) that you all can give me since moving is STRESSFUL! Gosh I'm such a whiner, no? SOTD is:

    This was from 1980. Gosh I was 10, that year. It smells incredibly dated but also deftly intriguing. Tip!

    Joining with all in bear hugs to Mikie P. Sending you patience and strength to cope with all that you have to encounter these days. (I know some things are more comforting in silence).

    We have a winter wonderland here, with picturesque trees and all the whimsies of the frosted windows. The sleigh is not done -- Mr.T ran out of materials -- he says -- the King of Unfinished Projects.

    Have a nice weekend.

    Hugs, ((Mike))-- moving is a drag! I feel for you. Take care when lifting-- no straining your back.

    We were supposed to get a storm but so far it's just light rain. I think we dodged a bullet.

    Evening Everyone,

    Feeling a bit perfumed out tonight, so going scentless.
    Managed to sniff La Fille de Berlin today - a crimson, luscious, glossy Lutens rose that opens with pepper and ends with amber. I just read some blogs which make this out to be on par with MKK so far as muskiness is concerned, but honestly, I didn't get that at all. I think that all these true, vintage civet bombs have spoiled me.
    Also tried Malle's newie: A lactonic sandalwood with citrus, a smidge of patchouli and a fair amount of sweetness, especially after a few hours. Too sweet for me and disappointing after I was expecting some real Mysore sandalwood action. Fans of P.G.'s Cadjméré should check it out.
    I'd run out of skin for 1932, so again had to content myself with a spritz on paper (really must get a sample). Love the sheer, pastel palette of iris and jasmine, but too femme ( I think ) even for me. Need to spend some quality time with it.
    Got the most decadent selection of choccies from Fortnum & Mason ( decided I couldn't face Harrods on a Saturday ) which I will shortly proceed to gorge myself on savour slowly.

    Good luck with the move, Mike.
    Best to all.

    I'm wearing Bandit today. I love wearing leather scents on weekends, especially if I'm watching some Jayhawk basketball like today! We got 14 inches of snow the other day and the weatherdudes are predicting another 12 tomorrow. Geez ... we have not had this much snow in a verrry long time. It is official: I'm tired of winter.

    Happy weekend, everyone! Hugs for all (and two for Mike!) ...

    Darn it, that 1932 is sounding nicer to me all the time! Must sample soon!

    (((Mike))), best wishes on your move! May it be as speedy and painless as such a chore can be.

    Glad to hear you like the Prada, lilybelle! If you need some EDT to compare, just holler!

    Shades, I'm glad you're feeling better. It does look like we're in for at least a couple of more rounds of snow before we get some real spring. And March Madness. No matter what happens with the rest of the Big 12 season, please make sure the Jayhawks destroy Texas. Thank you.

    ((((Mike)))) Good luck with your move. I hate the packing up and moving part, but I've always enjoyed the unpacking. It always feels like an opportunity to start clean in a new place and re-organize and *de-possess* my life. (I think that might have been lilybelle's word, and I love it. So apt.)

    Teardrop, I hope it's well and fixed this time, you poor thing! Are you celebrating with any wine?

    G, since I'm becoming a bit more daring with rose fragrances (as in, I'm not avoiding trying them anymore ), I believe I'll have to try La Fille de Berlin. And the new Malle. That sounds right up my alley, and I'm never one to turn down a confection.

    This morning I tested Van Cleef & Arpels Lys Carmin on one wrist and sprayed the other wrist with my decant of Uncle Serge's Un Lys to see how they compare. I do like them both, but they may be redundant. And the lily in Un Lys is much longer-lasting than in Lys Carmin. Although the Lys Carmin dries down to a really lovely sandalwoody vanilla, which I am such a sucker for.

    I just found out that the rest of my samples arrived, so I'll be in testing heaven the rest of the weekend!
