    Hello everyone -

    It's quite overcast and chilly this morning, and it's likely to stay that way for my tennis, but that makes it just right for Estée Lauder Aliage, whose zingy citrus and crisp, dry herbiness are the perfect foils for the cool and damp.

    Y'all have a wonderful day!



    ExtremeK - you've mentioned another one I've been curious about recently, SSS Rose Volupté, and I'm so pleased to hear you describe it as another "vintagey" one, and as it should be because it's actually replaced one I really loved which was Vintage Rose. I said this already in another thread, but I really need to sample that one! Looking at her site, she explains the reformulation; the labdanum she used was no longer available so she replaced it with a new one, and made a few other small tweaks while she was at it. There are definitely some others I'd like to sample, but I'm tempted to just order a small bottle of Rose Volupté, having now successfully convinced myself that it's going to be Vintage Rose but even better.

    Speaking of SSS, how do you like Tabac Aurea, teardrop? I really hope it works for you, especially since you didn't like Champagne de Bois as well as you expected, is that right? Was Winter Woods another one you sampled? That one always sounds so nice. She does ambers very well.

    You have a wonderful weekend in Edinburgh, Foustie!

    kalli - you smell utterly delightful!

    Evangeline, l may have given the impression that l didn't like CdB so much, but l was actually talking about the Geisha Amber Rouge that l layered over it that evening. Sorry about that! l remember thinking at the time that maybe what l'd written didn't make that clear.

    Yes l do like CdB a lot, & Winter Woods is like a deeper, richer version of it. Tabac Aurea is a surprisingly dry tobacco, not at all sweet or powdery as yet, but a highly authentic scent of real, unsmoked tobacco.

    Good morning, good smelling people.

    Reglisse Noire for today, my cold weather favorite. It's cold here, too cold for me, anyway, had to put on a sweater! But is supposed to be spectacular in the middle of the day with around 72F, so that is something to celebrate. Happy Friday!

    Happy Belated Birthday easyfish!
    iodine - I look forward to smelling those Profumo.it scents you have. Especially the Milano one. Love a good coffee scent.


    I finished my Xmas cards yesterday (yay!) and I just got all of the Xmas decorations from my ex and this weekend I'll put up my tree. I know it's late, but I really have wanted a tree & now I'll have my very own Xmas tree. My 1st in my new apartment & in my new life. I'm excited.

    Cooled down slightly (mid-70's here) but not cold by any means. In fact I think I might go to the beach this weekend. We'll see...

    Hi everyone! Well it's back in the deep freeze for those of us up here in the north woods. Below zero temps are expected all weekend.

    Wishing safe travels to Foustie and Jon.

    Wearing Juliette Has a Gun Anyway this morning from a sample. Notes include neroli, lime, jasmine absolute, musk, ambroxan and hedione. It's a very simple fragrance, it's unisex with only 15 ingredients used. It's a very nice scent, would be great for the office or an everyday scent. Definitely a departure from other scents from JHAG.





    Have a great weekend, everyone!
    Let us share each precious moment and enjoy the ones we love for each day is a new beginning and a blessing from above.

    Thanks for all the good wishes - I'd better bid a fond farewell now as tomorrow morning is likely to be hectic. Should hopefully be back on BN in two or three days after the jetlag has subsided and I have got accustomed to being upside down.

    Take care all.

    I have a new sample so my nose is having a holiday fizzy berry party. Newness, memories of drinking Saft and all kinds of good herbaceous things, summer and winter. My cats just went nuts over the package, purring and sniffing then tearing around the house like wild things. Very unusual, they usually don't like packages or react at all to perfumes.
    More rain, turning to freezing fog on top of snow, unusual weather for NW Arkansas but very lovely.
    This one deserves a review, but for now, my first visual impressions.
    It keeps changing. Strange and good forest smells for sure, and lots of plants with magical symbolism too, it seems...
