    Kalli, yes, I really like Beige as a matter of fact. I know Beige has honey notes/accord, but I never think of it as a honey scent because I get mostly frangipani from it.

    I guess I could have looked at your wardrobe, derp. lol. I usually don't like freesia, I must not get hit over the head with it in that scent.

    FrouFrou, Sunglasses sound like good idea!
    I don't think I've seen a 1981 version. I'll have to look for it! The more, the merrier.
    We do love the one with Colin Firth, though.

    gandhajala - I think Habit Rouge smells so good, when I smell it on someone. I work around lot's of French people (co-workers & customers) so I catch a whiff of it ever so often. One of my work buddies wears it & he's a smoker and I swear sometimes the combination of the two smells fantastic! It has a somewhat more radiant texture here in the S. Florida humidity. Which is why I gravitate mostly towards the EdC.
    xscent - I can't imagine traveling that much. I love my own bed.
    kewart - congratulations on your healthy return!
    easyfish - the combination of Michael Kors & Angel sounds nuclear! Enjoy
    Jon Rodgers - I remember shopping with Redneck Perfumisto & his wife in Barney's and they bought a bottle of L'Etrog. It smelled good on both of them. It always makes me think of that fun afternoon.
    30 Roses - your daughter sounds like an Anglophile, like me. Lovely afternoon!
    Robin-in-FL - I have NEVER heard of a waiter asking me to sniff a tea bag. HIlarious.


    I have heard Monsieur Guerlain say this before, about my SOTD - that it acts sometimes as a 'reset button' for my nose. I find that when I wear it (it's such a solid, classic, serious scent) that I'm able to go back to sampling the other, much more complex and modern scents, in my wardrobe. Today, it was vintage EdT

    Vetiver by Guerlain



    I have sampled and owned many other vetiver scents, smelled real vetiver roots, even owned various vetiver scented bath products and yet this scent continues to be my Favorite Vetiver. I am almost out of the vintage EdT so I think when I go to replace it, I might get some of the next formulation (the one they already reformulated yet another time, in the silver capped glass rectangular bottle) the one in the ribbed bottle. I still own vintage EdC, so both have their merits. And I have Shower Gel in my shower, of course.

    This was a busy and very long day at work ... just now getting home after 12+ hours. I wore L'Instant today, first time in a long time. I love the honey note in this ... kalli, have you tried L'Instant? It is a little powdery, maybe too powdery for you though.

    hugs to all ...
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Hmm, I think I have at the store but it was a very quick sniff, will have to try it again, shades.

    Sampling Gucci by Gucci..too much patchouli covering up the honey. I don't like too much patch most of the time, it just overpowers over everything. Also, sampling Rose Jam..which first got a meh, then a lovely lemon has popped up..very nice. Lastly, I sampled Snowcake, which, on me, is a weak juice..reminds me of a candle that came out of some light, sugar water. I get a smidge of violet..and something else but can't pinpoint it atm.
