    30Roses, did you like Argo? I've wanted to see it and haven't yet.

    It was riveting! I've got the book on which it was based on reserve now at our library.

    We had 0F windchill here this morning (yeah, right, spring ), so I decided to stay with L'eau d'Hiver again. It warmed me up nicely yesterday, but it also gives such a nice shot of violet. I like this one more with each wearing.

    G, my apologies for not responding earlier to your question about Dries Van Noten. It's been crazy busy at work. I'm taking a quick mental health break to post now, in fact

    In any event, here are my reactions:
    • This is like, not love, for me, which is surprising; it should be smack in the middle of my olfactory wheelhouse;
    • I don't see cocoa listed as a note, but it is prominent on my skin;
    • I don't get a blast of citron/lemon at the opening -- it seems to be used to brighten the sandalwood, more than anything;
    • I get ZERO florals;
    • The sandalwood is smooth and nice, but it doesn't bowl me over; I prefer the sandalwood in Tam Dao and 10 Corso Como, but I like this better than the sandalwood in Santal Majascule and the sandalwood/rosewood in Cadjmere;
    • This is a *very* linear fragrance on me -- no progression through top, heart, or base; it basically shows me everything all at once and then gently sits there (this does NOT bother me in the least, especially if I like something, but I know it drives some people batty, so I thought I'd mention it);
    • Longevity is solid, but it wears very closely on my skin;
    • I find DvN *very* similar to Sonoma Scent Studio's new "naturals" release, Cocoa Sandalwood, except Cocoa Sandalwood has more intensity and the cocoa is even more pronounced (which is why I don't care for CS, but I'm OK with DvN).

    All-in-all, I don't like this enough to lay out the $$$$ for a full bottle, but I might buy a decant of it.

    I'm in Annick Goutal's completely adorable Eau de Charlotte for the afternoon. I haven't worn this in such a long time ...since October, according to my records. It's nice to be smelling like this again.

    Went back to the drawing board had been wearing cashmere mist for a week or so. Today I just happen to glance at VW Boudoir, Ooooh I am back in love again. The sillage is sooo wonderful. this frag is the next best thing to being a woman.

    I will try to articulate what it makes me feel like. First of all I would like to own it in a 1/2 pint size. but 1 spray will do it.
    I feel like you should only put it on after a shower. It makes me feel pink, grown, ladylike but womanly, feminine and superduper Se xy!

    Boudoir all things woman!

    VW Boudoir is a favorite here too, I can deal with its copious amounts of musk, even.

    ExtremeK: Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on the new Malle. I'll have to sniff it again soon, but like you, I wasn't bowled over by it. A french blogger commented that they found it lacking a soul, and I can see what they mean: for something so gourmandish, I found it strangely distant, not an especially comforting scent as I'd expect from the notes. Perhaps it mirrors the Dries van Noten aesthetic in that regard (?). A sideways thumb rating from me (for now).
