    Put on Equistrius this morning as part of the back of the wardrobe challenge, and I am reminded of why I don't wear it. Not strong enough. Switching to Noir Epices for the rest of the day.

    Knize Ten today.

    Cazaubon, you just reminded me that I need to replace my shattered decant of Equistrius. It's plenty strong when about 10ml is seeping into your wood floors.

    I'm sampling Byredo La Tulipe today. Teardrop, my initial reaction is that it was a bit synthetic at the top for a few minutes, but it seems to have dissipated. I'm quite liking it in spite of this little voice in my head telling me I'm too mature for freesia, but this fragrance is just too darn happy for me not to enjoy it. I'm apparently a sucker for happy.
    l think you might be onto something there re. the zombie movies ExtremeK! What is this obsession with zombies all about, anyway?
    l know what you mean about the synthetic opening, but l agree it is a happy little spring scent, & that's no bad thing at any age, l think!

    Q, l seem to remember recommending Royal Egyptian Amber & Honeysuckle by Lucy B, not the fig one as l haven't tried it, but you make it sound lovely!

    Sticking with Guerlain in Samsara this evening.

    Ah! That was it. I'll get to that one someday, too.

    This morning I sampled Un Jardin Apres La Mousson, wore Dior Addict, and later sampled Gucci Guilty Black (men's).
    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    I'm not familiar with any of the current stuff (Les Creations de Monsieur Dior) but I did sample the edt from just before this last reformulation/repackaging, and it was very disappointing, I'm sorry to say. I'd recommend you try each of them, as Les Creations are available in edt, edp and parfum, I believe, but I'd think only the parfum would be very satisfying, if any would be.

    However, I really think you should give ebay a shot for a bottle of vintage edt. It's not uncommon to find a ribbed bottle, and that's a great version to get...I think they're mostly edts, and the cap will be etched silver, or a slightly later version which has an off-white plastic cap. They're usually not prohibitively expensive, either ...at least I doubt you'd be able to find a bottle of current parfum for any less, so I think it's worth a shot to get a better fragrance, and an authentic sense of what it's supposed to smell like. I understand if you just really don't want to go this route, but I didn't feel good about responding at all without even suggesting it as I simply don't have any hope for the new stuff.

    I'm in Guerlain Iris Ganache for the evening.

    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

    E., what are you doing this late at night? I thought you would be all tucked in. \

    ExtremeK -- funny, I wrote the date today at the restaurant "January 84th" and had to explain why to some patrons. Duhhh, because it is the 84th day of January weather we are having today, with accumulation and stuff.
