    Good morning fragrant friends!

    Up early today and getting ready for a day
    helping at our local Day Centre for the elderly.

    Rive Gauche is getting my attention this morning.

    Morning Everyone,

    Intended to wear Cuir Mauresque, but got Fumerie Turque by accident (second time in a week I've spritzed the wrong thing). Could be worse.

    Have a lovely Thursday, all.

    Good morning!

    Need to share some good news this morning. Today, I was to head down to Mayo again for more tests. The new specialist I was to see called yesterday and told me the problem I've had since last June has resolved and my lab work is all back to normal. Also, the new problem they found last Nov. during an endoscopy, the biopsy came back negative, I don't have this new disease it looked like I had. He said things look so good that he was cancelling my appointment. I am so happy, what a relief!! I still need to go down in late April, but it's just for a recheck with my regular doctors. Thanks again for all the support you have all given me, it's helped more than you could know. xoxo

    Wearing Lolita Lempicka this morning.





    Have a great day!

    Wow, that is wonderful, Kiliwa! Thank you so much for sharing happy news!

    Neil Morris Prowl today. Very grown-up smelling, this is, once it gets past the grape koolaid thing at the beginning. I was restrained in application, so it's not crazy loud. It is a good smell and a good winter smell to me. We are getting the Florida equivalent of what I think is called "indian summer" up north...The last gasp of winter, an unseasonably cold day for late March.

    So glad to hear your news Kiliwia!

    Shades, it sounds like we were both wearing Ormonde Jayne Woman yesterday. It was my first wearing and it grew on me as the day progressed. I am anxious to try it again and see after a few more proper wearings what I feel about it. It's so unlike anything I have.

    Wearing my much neglected Dioressence today, from my vintage bottle. As usual, the first 30min make me wonder why in the world I bought this. But as it settles I am reminded.

    Happiness belongs to you today, Kiliwia! Yay!

    I wish all our BN family good health and comfort. I know such things be ellusive.

    Tomorrow starts my 4-day, home-alone stay-cation and scent sampling. Will be more chatty when the family has hopped a plane for Connecticut.

    For now, I'm in a really odd rut with Bond No. 9 for Mothers. What am I doing reaching for this scent over and over?

    Oh, Kiliwia, what wonderful news and what a relief! Some kind of celebration is definitely in order

    G, you (and/or the blogger) described it perfectly: I agree that Dries Van Noten feels strangely distant/bereft of soul. It's not that it smells *thin*, but it somehow lacks connection, it just sits on my skin and never properly becomes part of me. You've nailed it. Well done.

    I'm thumbing my nose at this weather (cold, overcast, snow forecast) and wearing Arquiste Boutonniere No. 7, a spicy but otherwise well-behaved greenish gardenia. You can feel it tugging at the reins, so to speak, but it's tightly controlled. The fragrance executes the concept (a gardenia boutonniere worn at the opera by men in bergamot and lavendar colognes) very well: the gardenia is never allowed to overpower. It's a single bloom, constrained by the buttonhole. Really well done, I think. Jon, given our shared appreciation for Aleksandr, I think you'll like this one, too, if you like gardenia.

    Your assessment is bang on . I was very impressed when I briefly sniffed it a while back and promised myself I'd revisit - may well be doing so this weekend actually if all goes to plan.

I'm thinking of something very different for me, but will probably chicken out and go safe. I'm wearing Cuir de Lancome. I wanted something with some confidence, but not Bandit-like confidence. LOL Who knows how my hair would turn out with Bandit?!

    Have fun, shades!

    The arrival of several packages today has provided me with samples to luxuriate in. I had to move one batch, still sealed in their bags, away from my desktop just now so as not to confuse my nose.

    On my left wrist 25 minutes ago I dabbed a sample of the newly-released Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca.

    So far, it's very citrus-orangey, and is reminding me of Bond No. 9 Little Italy (except that I think it's a little sweeter) rather than orange blossom or neroli. But we shall see how it develops.

    Edit:
    Luminous, makes me think it has aldehydes -- I think maybe that is where the "bianca" ("white") comes in.

    Has some similarities with Lancôme Ô de L'Orangerie but I'm not smelling musk.

    It's a bit too sweet/loud for me sniffed up close, but I noticed when I stepped out of my car to enter the library an hour ago, I could smell it in the air all around me-- just from the dab on my hand. And it was nice.
