    For my cheapie day, I have selected Avon Pink Suede. With a few negative reviews in the Directory, people do not pay attention or seek to test it. One review even mentions it was made for a "stupid, boring and cheap woman"! Sounds like me all right, sometimes.

    Evangeline, whatchaol cooking for the guests? Have fun at the jazzfest.
    Jimmy, I will change into your Incense Oudh tonight, deal?

    I'm also a fan of his, wooznib - I recently posted some of his stuff in the music thread! I usually keep an eye out for word of his appearances as he tours a lot, but he doesn't play around here as much as he used to (he's actually at Jazz Standard in NYC tonight.) I've seen him a few times, but come to think of it, never at Jazz Fest. He's great - I'd imagine he inspires some smoooooooth blends.

    Thanks Wolfie. I actually made a big ol' pot of gumbo yesterday so that's a good start, but I think I'll add some jambalaya and some spicy shrimp remoulade, along with green salads and fresh fruit ...maybe some cold-cuts and baguettes for po'boys ...basic stuff of the sort that out-of-towners expect. I haven't decided on a treat yet, possibly a good old pecan pie, maybe lemon meringue ...both, if I have the time. We probably won't spend a lot of time at home, but I'll be prepared for when we do.

    Hooray for Alsatian Gewürztraminer!

    Hooray for Buckwheat Zydeco and Aaron Neville, too!

    Hooray for Antaeus in the morning, Kbe!

    It’s good so see you all in the SotD thread.

    I’m joining the Guerlain wearers in Meteorites, from a decant sent by a fragrance friend. I wish I had bought a bottle of this when I had the chance. I love it. Maybe later I’ll sync in a cheapo. I sure have enough of them, lol!

    We're gearing up for a busy – hopefully busy that is, keep your fingers crossed – weekend of getting out of the way so the realtors can show our house to potential buyers. I hope we unload it soon. I never liked this place and I will be glad to be free of it. That doesn't sound very nice (I know I should be thankful to have a roof at all, and I am), but I'm so ready to move on. I have a Buckwheat Zydeco cd somewhere. I think I'll play it while I do some house cleaning today.

    I second that comment. I've been in New Orleans few times and each time it's just wasn't enough.

    Synching in Intuition by Estee Lauder, though technically it was more of a freebie than a cheapie (Wooznib ). It was among first of my real perfumes and many fond memories are attached to this one.

    Ozjon701 So happy to see you here! I am jealous as well of your perfect weekend with a perfect weather. Enjoy!

    Not in sync - in:

    L'Heure Vertueuse by Cartier (the last drops of my sample)



    As soon as I can, I'm buying a bottle of this. For sure.


    Larimar, the combo of HR EdC and L'Extrait is divine - I do it all of the time. I'm sure everyone on the morning commute loved it.
    lilybelle - get out of those Realtor's way! (giggle) Good luck sweetie.
    iodine - I love both of those scents. Maybe because of my Mexican heritage? Enjoy!

    Tonight we are planning to take Mom and drive to see the Night Rainbow laser light sculpture that has been brought to the area to celebrate the 375th anniversary of the city of New Haven. This display has already been shown in other parts of the world.

    The laser light is aimed westward from East Rock Park and will be visible for miles near the shoreline. Here is the website with photos:

    Any BNers from Connecticut may want to take a drive to see it after dark. The last night is Saturday.

    AHA! And I meant to tell you. I sampled Tom Ford Lys Fume yesterday and I had a wham, bam, whooosh, olfactory memory moment and I landed PLOP, back in the late 70's, early 80's and I was wearing Cacharel Anais Anais. I found it to be uncanilly like my memory of the original Anais Anais. Anyone else?

    My goodness, Evangeline, are your guests ever lucky! All the food talk this week has me simultaneously dreaming of food and feverishly promising myself to exercise!

    Finally, some spring-like weather is on tap for the weekend! 60s and 70s -- not warm enough for sunbathing but perfect for exercising outdoors!

    I'm not in synch today; instead, I'm happily celebrating the warmer temperatures with Robert Piguet Mademoiselle Piguet. It's a warmly sugared orange blossom that's just so darn simple and *pretty* -- and neither of those adjectives are pejoratives when describing this fragrance (at least not IMO).

    Happy Friday to all!

    iodine, I'll join Mike in saying that you are gonna smell GREAT this evening Anima Dulcis is one of my absolute favs, although I get too much bell pepper as I recall from the L'Artisan. But chile and chocolate go harmoniously together in the Arquiste, and for some reason I view it as a sexy scent

    Not in synch, going to join the sampling crew. I grabbed PG Bois Naufrage for this beautiful spring day. It is quiet, but nice. A creamy fig with wood that is less sharp than a few of the other fig options that I have tried. Like it!

    I'm not sure whether anybody here knows who this is, but he died today.

    I'm wearing Violette in Love by Nicolai Parfums this afternoon. I'm really enjoying this one.

    Kewart, we had the weird hailstorm here this afternoon too, even though the sun was still shining!

    Elizrj, thanks, & do report back on your lasagne experiments!

    Went to the gym for lunch (boy, am I tired now!) and drained my sample (from 30 Roses) of:

    Lavender by Woods of Windsor



    Nice lavender. Doesn't ruffle any feathers, goes on easy-going and not too medicinal although it smells very 'natural'. One of the better 'affordable' lavenders. I can see why you like it 30R.

    SOTA - Kenzo Jungle Tigre. It's my first encounter with this discontinued beaut and unfortunately, I am already enchanted. Peach, cinnamon, and some strange citrus I have never encountered before - must be kumquat. Warm, spicy, and strangely beautiful. Sensuous and mysterious. Dominic Ropion truly is a master...

    Rose Boheme on one hand and La Rose Jacqueminot on the other. Drizzling rain here most of the day and this evening. Trying an interesting beer called Proximity, a blend of wheat and Sauvignon blanc grapes. Actually very pleasant and drinkable
