    Aww, sorry, cello! You'll get 'em next time!

    Back to gloomy and grey here but at least our temps are in the normal range now. For how long, we'll see. Sampling SL Fleurs d'Oranger today, it's a "no". Not a huge ob fan at all but do like the L'Artisan much better. And if I just had to have an orange blossom scent, MFK's APOM would have to be the winner.

    Have a good Monday, all!

    It's been all about Chanel lately. 1932 wearing and sotd is Coco M. I gave the 1932 a full wearing the other day..gotta say, yep, a fb would be nice! Though expensive. The only thing is I find the 1932 doesn't last as long on me as I would want. I don't mind spraying more though. My sample is going like cherry Pez candy though, thanks again to the very lovely BNer who let me try it!

    Twolf, I'm so sorry about your friend. I hope s/he has good prognosis.

    So, I'm compiling a list of fragrances that I need to sniff while in Las Vegas next month. Based on everyone's reactions, I'm putting 1932 at the top of the list, as well as LAP Seville a L'Aube. Any other suggestions? (And, yes, I realize what a sweeping invitation to comment that is -- which is why I'm posting it here and not in its own thread. I trust my SotD peeps! )

    30Roses, did you find a new bed for your mom? How is she doing without the caregiver?

    I'm scent sisters with Twolf today in YSL Paris.

    Good afternoon everyone. The day is absolutely stunning, the reason the snowbirds come down here.
    Neil Morris City Rain. The 8yo came into the bedroom and said "it stinks in here!"

    In the weekend I wore Mure et Musc Extreme, and I have come to the conclusion that it must just smell different to men than it does to women. To me, still, happy safe kindergarten teacher work-friendly inoffensive beautiful smell.
    But it is the only scent I have gotten straight-up 'you smell good' compliments on from males, and again this weekend, universally they call it as 'sexy'. It's not a straight guy/gay guy split, either, they weren't all straight guys. No woman has ever noticed it. Is this even remotely possible? Or is it just coincidence? I don't have a huge sample size, but I think it's up to 7 or 8 man compliments on this one scent and a total of 1 man compliments on one other scent, once, but that was from a guy who was chatting me up, so I am inclined to discard that one as an outlier.

    Oooo, Jon's sandalwood sounds nice... inspired, I'm going to wear Laboratorio Olfattivo Cozumel today. Haven't applied scent today, as I'm keeping an eye on the pup. We got a puppy! She's a Rhodesian Ridgeback, 11 weeks old now, and her name is Matilda (we just call her Tilda).

    Hugs all around to our multi-national BN family, with an extra pinch to Whitefluffy's cheek. You folks add so much cultural texture to my perception of life. Thank you for sharing your stories from every corner of the globe.



    Thanks to a dear BNer, I'm smelling Jo Malone's Iris & Lady Moore. In a blind sampling, I would have categorized this as some kind of tea scent straight away. At the start, I caught a glancing impression of JM's Lemon Tart, which I sampled a couple days ago. (As it turned out, Kalli, while LT fortunately wasn't like cake or frosting, it's fresh juiciness just petered out without going anywhere good or interesting. Darn. I was hoping LT would dry down more like Iunx Eau Frapee, which nearly won my heart in the freshness category.) Back to I&LM—seems like this could be one of those don't-have-to-think-about-it fragrances that you could spray all over and walk out the door. It doesn't tug in any particular direction. Come to think about it, geranium, iris and vetiver can be neutral players, so perhaps this would make for a good diplomat's scent. Not the fragrance for Margaret Thatcher, I suppose. I've read that hers was Penhaligon's Bluebell.

    Update: I&LM drydown is not unlike Vetiver Tonka.

    ExtremeK, we came back, he is in a worse shape than we hoped to find him, four of his five children are there. Sad today.

    Wolfie, really sorry to hear about your friend - I do hope he will be able to make a full recovery.

    Congratulations to you and your sweet new puppy, turquoisewater - what fun!! A new puppy ...that's even better than new perfume!

    I'm in Agent Provocateur for the afternoon.


    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

    Twolf, I'm so sorry. At a minimum, he is surrounded by loving family and friends, and that is so very important.

    Just applied some Ilum Dean Fresco before exercising, from a sample sent to me by Schilling (thank you!!) Right off the top, the lemony-woody Fresco reminds me of the bergamot-woody open to Halston Z-14. I like it, on that basis alone. Interestingly, I get zero pineapple from Fresco. Perhaps HdP 1804 has spoiled me.

    I haven't popped in for quite some time and it's nice to "see" everybody in all your fragrant glory!
    I discovered Anima Dulcis by Arquiste in February and it has been a go to scent for me ever since. Something about the deep cocoa note balanced with the red chili and a sprinkle of cumin - well, I know it sounds like something to eat, but the effect is more of a lush oriental than a gourmand. It pushes similar buttons for me that Shalimar pushes, which says a lot!
    Kisses to all!
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Thanks to all, he is still not responding and I do not think he knew who we all were. He is going to the nursing home tomorrow, on hospice -- for comfort, primarily.

    Nice to see you, rtamara, you were missed here.
