    Morning teardrop!

    Well, I'm catching up with Friday Synch because I was a way for the weekend. It's was a good one last week, "Your most silent fragrance"

    From the synch thread.....

    Well, I have a cracker for this synch. L'Antimatière by Isabelle Doyen for Lez Nez. Barely a murmer. Hmm. I've had this sample for a long time. I can "get" it as a perfumers exercise in minimalism but I don't get it as something that you would buy or wear. Today I am helped along by Darvants timeous review. All very interesting and my nose is stuck to my wrist. It would have to be to smell this.

    At first all I can smell is a faintly rubbery note, then salty amber, all in barely a whisper.

    Good morning smellies. Where has the sun disappeared to?! It was so lovely and warm yesterday...


    SOTD is Enchanted Forest from a sample. Loving it so far. Picture is Errol Flynn in tights I just couldn't resist.

    Foustie, no whisper here. This might be a bit much for this early in the morning. I should move to a different time zone, or learn to apply less with YSL's Jazz.

    Morning! We actually should finally be getting some sun and a bit of warmth today. Wheeee, 40s. Hard to believe how excited I am about hitting the 40s. Sad.

    I'm testing Absolute por le Soir today. I have loved Cologne por le Soir, so I thought I should test Absolute. When I first spritzed it, I almost ran away from myself. Like nuh-uh. But it followed me. After 30 minutes it started to change my mind. Now it's starting to resemble Cologne, except it's not disappearing the way Cologne does.

    Love the pic of Errol Flynn LadyM!

    This is from yesterday, but I wanted to clarify. The sample you sent me, Wolfie, was Peonies, which, although I can't remember it with perfect clarity anymore, I did think was beautiful. But Serena had discontinued it by the time I got around to ordering it, so I got a sample of her new one, Pivoine Rose instead, and although it was a bit different, that's the one I actually fell in love with and ordered ...so I've really been thanking you for turning me on to Serena's peonies in general, and I'm happy you did. You probably wouldn't like Pivoine Rose very much either, but they are, indeed, two different fragrances.

    Barbara Bui EDP, which I don't usually wear 'out in the world', but which has already gathered a compliment and a "what IS that? where can I get it?" and the ensuing sadness when learning it is discontinued. It really is very pretty.

    Good morning, Basenotes family!

    I'm wearing Penhaligon's Peoneve this morning as part of 30Roses's sample pass.

    LOL, Twolf, you're not a wet blanket at all! I'm not so worried about the floral notes in Pivoine Rose (even if they don't smell of peony, lol!), but I am concerned about the musk. Drat that migraine association. GAH!

    Mike, I'm heading back to Vegas at the end of May with one of my girlfriends -- I'm planning to spend a good deal of the first day in Barneys trying all the lines I don't know well, including Nasomatto. There are several that look interesting. Any recommendations?

    Happy hump day, everyone!

    Slept late again, no fragrance as I am still a bit rocky/queasy but am headed out on a few errands.

    I'm late to post today, but I did dab on some Ramon Monegal Entre Naranjos this AM prior to meeting. Now, this one I like, but I can hardly smell it now. It needs to be sprayed I think.

    Anyone want to bump that Ramon Monegal sample pass thread up so I can quit talking to myself in it?

    I think HG and Pardon are both very sample-worthy. Also the absinthe one. The others are either boring, overpriced or bizarre (or all three).

    I don't need a fragrance when I wear this deodorant - it's powerful stuff.

    I'm wearing SL Sarrasins today. <big sigh> I've been nursing a sample of this; I dab it carefully on from the tiny sample vial. I think I can imagine how gorgeous this must be when sprayed lavishly.

    Yesterday was a long on-call day at work ... I didn't get home until almost 10:00 and went straight to bed. I was wearing Le Baiser du Dragon and received a compliment, sort of a nice companion for a rather stressful day.

    Still tired tonight, but I'm off tomorrow and can get caught up ...

    Haha. Cracked me up, PerfumedLady. I was surprised that I really didn't notice my scent at work- maybe it's not a good work scent-- too many distractions. Maybe it's better as a fun, weekend or evening scent (Dior Addict) than a daytime/work scent. It wasn't distracting, but rather the work environment- and bus environment- distracted from it. Too bad ...
