    Blob on, 30R! Hope you're feeling better soon. Your body must be telling you it's time to rest.

    (((Mike))), sounds like one of those days. Ugh!

    Took me until yesterday evening to catch on that we were being punked with all those "discontinueds". I even cleaned out my samples list and still assumed it was a BN glitch! A bit slow, I was!

    Guerlain Rose Barbare today. Have a nice day, gang!

    Well, as much as I like the scent of Madeline, its way-too-authentic Chai vibe keeps me from wearing it. I realize it's completely a matter of taste as well as perception, but I don't enjoy wearing perfumes that smell more like actual food (or a candle) to me than "proper" perfumes ...no matter how nice that food or candle (or potpourri, or room spray) might smell. Although I'm not sure I ever sensed any musk in Madeline, but I'm really not a good judge for you since I'm not at all sensitive to musks. If I'm not completely anosmic to it, I tend to like most things others describe as musky ...but I do think there's a fair amount of musk in Pivoine Rose now that you mention it, simply because I've always thought it was a very realistic interpretation of the flower, which I happen to find pretty musky in nature ...plus, Serena includes it in the notes, and her musks do tend to be rather rich. Are you on a quest for a pretty peony perfume?

    I went from gorgeous peonies to gorgeous roses this afternoon. I'm now in Creed's Fleurs de Bulgarie, which I suppose makes me scent-cousins with 30 R.

    Thanks everyone for the warm wishes - making it thru the day.

    Wooznib sent me some samples, so currently my arm is saturated with a sample of:

    Spicy!!! Like that line from the movie, Dune: "He who controls the spice, controls the Universe!!'

    Turns out the article was about aquastats and circulators, not sweaty toilets. Hope you're not disappointed.

    Eau De Cartier Essence d'Orange + Cuir de Lancome. Seredipitous! The Cartier sample seemed a bit boring, so I spritzed some Cuir. Family commenced to make yummy sounds.

    Thanks, Evangeline. I agree with you that Serena's musks are quite rich, and, ever since the day I got a migraine while wearing SSS Egyptian Musk (although it didn't *cause* the migraine), I've had to be very careful with white/soft musks, or they re-trigger a headache. Funny enough, I still seem to do OK with MKK and Musc Ravageur. Back on topic, though, I *am* interested in a peony fragrance, but I know that can be rather a difficult note. I already have, and really enjoy, HdP Vert Pivoine. Are there others you enjoy?

    And my blind buy of Cinema just arrived, so that's my SotE, and I believe there's peony in that, too, but I wouldn't call Cinema a "peony fragrance." Actually, I think Cinema will turn out to be a floral amber on me -- as opposed to an ambery floral.... Regardless, teardrop, you were spot-on right : Cinema is right up my alley, and I'm liking it a lot so far! Thanks for the reassurance/enabling!

    (((30Roses))) Glad you're feeling better!

    Wearing Coco Mademoiselle this evening. This is the first time I've worn it when I can really see why people love it so much. I've always liked it, but tonight I love it!

    Oh ExtremeK, although E. thanks me every time for having done I do not even know what, I find no peonies in Serena's Peony Rose. It is sharp and astringent citrus and rosey musk on this skin, the end. Sorry to be a wet blanket.
