    I happen to love Estee Lauder. I adore Azuree and Youth Dew.

    Today, I wore Azuree. This is so wonderful and distinctive that I recognized it on a women at a doctor's office. Of course, I complimented her.

    Happy Friday, everyone!

    For this week's oud theme, I'm wearing vintage (and sadly discontinued) M7 by YSL. I haven't tried the Oud Absolu flanker, but I love the oud paired with the sweet cherry in the opening in this version. I promised myself that I wouldn't buy any more fragrances for a while, but I might need to go and see if I can find a back up bottle.

    I am going to wear Soir de Lune, Sisley. Because my (Arab) husband always comments it reminds him of the rose/oud ''perfumes people wear at home''.

    Wearing Illuminum Rose Oud from my samples. This will be my next big purchase. On the dry down it smells exactly like Elizabeth Arden Exhilarators which was on the market for about 5 minutes 20 years ago. I have been looking for it ever since. This lasts a long time on me too which is always a plus when you like something.

    I am wearing By Kilian Amber Oud today. This may be cheating the synch a bit, because Amber Oud is not a strictly oud fragrance, as it leans a little more to the amber side of things. Amber and oud is brilliantly paired here, the amber soothing the medicinal quality of the oud and the oud adding weight to the amber. Add to the mix a smoky, boozy vanilla ... and you have a gorgeous blend of wood, smoke, and sweetness. I love this stuff so much. Now for the bad news ... the price. A 50ml bottle is $395 at Luckyscent (although a refill can be bought for $185.)

    Notes: amber, oud, bay leaf, cedarwood, vanilla
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    For today's synch I was wearing City Love by Dueto Parfums, it was mostly patchouli and oud on my skin with a bit of lemongrass. Longevity and sillage are amazing.

    For the oud/woody notes sync I chose a scent I haven't worn for a few years: Samsara. It was really nice to re-discover it.

    I bought this because I thought it had gardenia in it. Not so. It is loaded with tuberose and freesia. Love it!

    Hi guys . Sorry I missed you last week. OK, just showered and can choose.......designer, hmmm.....OK got it! "The Iceberg Fragrance". I got into my sisters car one day and she was wearing a great modern synthetic which filled the car, peppery, a bit leathery, odd notes. I loved it. It was The Iceberg Fragrance. I bought it cheaply and I will wear it tonight. Wait till you hear this....;

    Notes;

    Bergamot, coriander, pear, pink berries, pistachio ice cream, peony, mimosa, violet, suede, musks.

    What fun!

    I can't believe of all days, I didn't even think to wear PI by Givenchy today. It not only fits the sync of "Designer Fragrance" but today (3/14) is Pi Day! Needless to say, this is now my SOTE!

    I picked Ralph Hot by designer Ralph Lauren.

    Top Notes: Mandarin, Almond Blossom, Cinnamon
    Middle Notes: Mocha Cream, Orchid, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Fresh Milk, Fig
    Base Notes: Maple, Vanilla, Amber, Musk , Sandalwood

    This is NOT as foody as it sounds by the notes. Something about it feels tropical but not in a pineapple/coconut sort of way. And the maple is more maple wood rather than maple syrup.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Hiya. Won't be able to pop in tomorrow. I will wear the original Armani for women, from the eighties. Heavy on the oakmoss, not sure about the labdanum, but ticks all the boxes all the same, and has that gorgeous, unmissable twang.

    One of my favourite families, I was wearing them before I ever knew what a Chypre was.

    Okay, going for my very first chypre Rochas Femme vintage pdt(before the cumin).

    Had to look up chypre. Wasn't sure what it was or if I owned any. Found out Halston Classic, Weil de Weil, and Mitsouko are all floral chypre. To my surprise Laura Ashley No. 1 is a fruity chypre. Who knew???

    Think I'll go with Weil Weil de Weil.

    I was wearing Trussardi by Trussardi (in the white bottle), a leather chypre. It can smell a bit medicinal, but is good on fresh spring days.

    Chypre! Hurray! I had a very busy day yesterday, a great day. In the morning the classic Chypre de Coty, lovely, but actually a bit too tame for me. We went to a talk with inner afterwards, in the evening vintage Miss Balmain. I brought one of those minis as Evangeline recommended, and I was transported back in time. It is still my favorite perfume!
