    Xscent - that menu looks fantastic. I've never had Chateaubriand. I'm hungry...
    30 Roses - Give mom a big high-five from me today. She's a total rock star & she is lucky to have a wonderful daughter like you.
    Quarry - buy the BN9 I Love New York For Mothers already!
    ComDiva - enjoy your new bottle. I liked OI, but it wasn't 'love'. When I was in Vegas with the BN group, many of the guys fell in love with this one. I think it strikes a nice balance between the supercharged rose/oud combos like Montale & the opulent berry-like lush niche versions like Malle's Portrait of a Lady & Midnight Oud by Juliette Has a Gun.
    teardrop - I love that Memoirs of a Trespasser. Rtamara41 sent me a sample of it & I thoroughly enjoyed it. Smoky vanilla. My boss even complimented me on it when I was wearing it that day. One of the best in the line.
    RHM - it doesn't surprise me that you like Mitzah. I'm not sure if you remember that thread that I started about it (here) where I name-checked Eau des Merveilles which I think you like, right? It's much sweeter than the other Dior amber, Ambre Nuit (which I actually prefer over Mitzah), but it also has that chocolate-y patchouli thing going on. Very cozy scent.

    Today was a nice mix of chores (breakfast, dishes, groceries, gym, bill paying/bank reconcilation) and relaxation (relaxing by the pool working on my tan, playing on BN, listening to music.

    This morning I wore (from a sample from rtamara41):

    Bois de Paradis by Parfums Delrae



    I still keep trying to see if this is gonna work for me. The cinnamon / rose combination if addictive. It felt slightly less clumsy on me today. Still...not sure.

    Tonight I have a housewarming party to go to in Ft. Lauderdale. I have know this couple for years and they had their home built, brand new, a sort of Mc Mansion. It looks incredible from the pictures and they have a HUGE bunch of friends so it should be quite an exciting party. I'm kind of nervous, since I haven't seen most of these guys since I was married - now that I'm single I guess I'm feeling a bit awkward about running into people who are asking where my 'other half is?' and having to announce my news. Still...I'm going to go and I'm going to have a good time. I'm not going to let fear keep me from living my life.

    I'll wear something large & in-charge - probably Leather Oud or maybe Black Aoud. Wish me luck ((bear hugs))

    Have a great time, Mike!
    Thanks for the link to the Mitzah thread! Yes, I do love Eau des Merveilles too. You know my scent preferences very well. We both love Guerlain Mitsouko EDC, if I recall.


    SOTE is CD Amber Nuit from La Collection Privee. (from a sample)

    Even later: CD Leather Oud, also from a sample.

    Mike you must try! A standing invite for you too and there's an amazing little jazz lounge we can traipse off to afterwards. The salted caramel with pistachio ice cream is especially delish. Enjoy your party, the house sounds amazing. Truly glad to hear things are better in your world ((((hugs)))).

    Hello to all! I'm fully engaged in my Keiko Mecheri expedition. Today, it's Bal de Roses from the Bespoke Sampler coffret. This one is nothing short of stunning. Though surprisingly, not a whole lot about roses. All I can say is that it wafts and makes one breathe deeply.

    I just tried that this week too Mimi! It was stunning to me. I couldn't say whether it's weaker than others, but I can say I loved it. Will be resampling, and resampling, and then looking for a decant I believe.

    We are!


    Wearing Bond/Mothers cuz I'm trying to decide, with excessive over thinking, whether to keep buying samples or just buy the bottle I wanted to get in Chicago, except it wasn't available in 50ml. Over think, over think, over think.
    Do buy the bottle, you've proved that you love it, so of course you need a FB.

    reading and posting quite late, Mike must be having fun at the party which is in full swing by now...I dreamt of L'Heure Bleue last night and it has been my scent of the day today, and was my full bottle purchase from the meetup. Classic, meditative and pretty. My octogenarian neighbor gave me a hug when he was out walking the dog and told me I was pretty and smelled really good - that Guerlain - classic and timeless!
    "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

    Who ships a Chanel bottle in an envelope with NO bubble wrap? Not even in a bubble mailer? Just a thin, paper envelope in a zip log bag? That's how my pre-owned No. 5 came to me. Wow, I am surprised it didn't arrive in a million pieces. The bottle is ok. My goodness, some people really don't care.

    Xscent, I hope you had a wonderful evening -- that's an unbeatable menu! How do you like your oysters? I like my mine as strong and brine-y as possible ((Hugs)) back at'cha, sweetie!

    sfmedusa and elizrj, I do hope you're feeling better. Lots of liquids, too!

    mike, good for you I'm so glad you're enjoying yourself and getting out. I know how hard it can be, but I think you'll be surprised at the support you receive once people know. ((hugs))

    Quarry, I hope you find a way to shut down your brain and just go with your nose/heart/gut. Can you put on a bit from a sample? Wear it without thinking anything and let it talk to you. You'll figure it out.

    I ended the day in more spice, plus a dose of fabulous vanilla: Organza Indecence. Love this one.

    ExtremeK, I tried them all, 1270 was a favorite and a candidate, but I wanted to try Speakeasy first. The former is still the champion in my book.

    Came from work. Exhausted. Smell of Fate still.
