    Hello everyone -

    It's cold here, too - we might not even reach 50° today ...brrr! I do generally like it warmer, but of course one of the good things about the cold is wearing those perfumes which can be a bit overwhelming in the heat, like this vintage Halston, a few drops of 70s parfum followed by a glorious spritz of edc ...no apologies, I just couldn't choose.

    Y'all have a good one!

    Good morning all ya good smelling people!

    Avon's (Mark) Karmala today. One of those hidden treasures, LOL. Love this, both my older girls love it, sold the heck out of it while it was available, got discontinued pretty quick, it was a seasonal thing. Sort of hairspray vibe at the top, slightly bitter but not in a bad way, incense and spices and vanilla mashed up underneath, wee bit of some sort of citrus. All together it's cohesive and just smells like Karmala.

    2 by Comme des Garcons



    A friend from DC came to visit me a couple weeks ago & he loves fragrances. He came over my place & we smelled a bunch of stuff from my wardrobe and he's always very open minded about trying things outside his comfort zone. He, surprisingly, fell in love with 2. He just made a decision to purchase a bottle of it yesterday. Which prompted me to put some on this morning. I hardly ever reach for it (years ago it gave me an instant headache when I wore it) but today it smells rose-prominent, 'shiny' and oddly comforting-and-synthetic. That ink note, is such a unique smell.

    Tomorrow is my 5 day vacation to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (1st time in South America for me). I'm excited! Can't wait.

    Up last night with sick kid, fever was 101.7 & 102. Poor girl she was having nightmares & no wonder. So she's home from school for day 2.

    It's cold here.

    No scent around Sofie, it makes her feel worse.

    So I'm scent-nekkid today, or for the time being anyway.

    Twolf, was that your first trial of Mauboussin? I found it lasts a LONG time as well. One spritz on Monday that I could still smell on my sweater this morning when I wore it again. I love that one and it's really so inexpensive!

    Well today I'm testing Shanghai Lily again from the Chicago sample set. I wore my pink swirly skirt and it just calls for it. I have a coffee date and between the skirt, the black faux fur swing coat and the Shanghai Lily, I feel good Aside from the fact that I could use about another 2 hours of sleep!! I'm going to take your advice Quarry and smile

    Oh, Jon, now my brain has been going since you said "need for Creed" and "urge for Serge" ... how about "in the mood for Oud"... or or or ... oh gosh now I'm not going to be able to stop thinking on these

    SotA is JM White Lilac & Rhubarb.

    There is a distinct ash note in this that goes oddly well with the lilac. Other lilacs, I only wanted to wear in the spring, but this one is multi-seasonal.

    Off to work in a couple of hours. Miss Ma'am is still abed but no fever, as of yet. It's been going up at night.

    I put on Carthusia IO Capri profumo, which I discovered in Chicago. It lasts a good while but isn't overpowering, citrusy & a little floral.

    I'll pass your get well wishes along to my girl.
