    Hello all!

    I'm sampling Nuit de Noël extrait today (a bit late, I know), still trying to find the 'key' to Caron! Wish me luck.

    Hope everyone is staying warm and dry (unless you're Xscent, in which case I hope you're staying cool).

    Just a quick hello for now as I’m heading out for dinner. Came home to find this lovely thing waiting for me. Une Fleur de Cassie today and switching to Eva Kant tonight. I’ll catch up with you all later.

    Good morning! I think we have escaped the worst of the winds
    and actually have sunshine at the moment (long may it last!)
    The river Severn is still high, however, and I hope this infernal
    rainy spell subsides soon so that business owners and farmers can get
    back to their normal lives.

    Your generosity is admirable, but please keep it for yourself - we haven't had any winter yet


    Valentine's Day tomorrow will have to be geared around the next wave of gales and rain (still no snow ). Looking forward to a long weekend, though activities look like being indoor orientated - caffeine, calories, cuddles, and a medley of Mozart sounds infinitely preferable to mother nature's miserable alternative.

    Hello everyone. Thinking of those affected by the various extreme weather events - they seem to be going on everywhere all at once.

    We have a snowstorm/nor'easter currently raging out there. I am not chancing driving in it, so called out. Will catch up on laundry this morning, then put up a big batch of minestrone later on today. All done in Shalimar, of course.

    Take care, all.

    Hello all,

    I'm going to spritz on some Neroli Portofino to freshen up the Tuscan Leather still lingering from yesterday. TL is quite a longevity beast. It'll be in the high 70s today here in the land of Eternal Summer or so it seems this year.

    Hi, everyone!

    Terry's nor'easter is just getting started in the Boston area, and I'm heading out to finally do battle with a rogue orthodontist who put a permanent retainer in my kid's mouth five years ago *without informing or discussing it with me, my husband or my kid.* It's been simmering for ages, and today they're going to make right on it. I am not nice when I am angry - even more so on behalf of my kids.

    Trying to set a more positive overall tone with my fragrance choice: Amouage Jubilation XXV. The men's version sings on my skin, much more than the feminine version. Wishing everyone a wonderful day!

    Jubilation XXV notes: Frankincense, labdanum ciste, coriander, davana, blackberry, orange, gaicwood, rose, honey, bay, orchid, cinnamon, clove, celery seed, opoponox, patchouli, myrrh, musk, moss, atlas cedarwood, ambergris, oud, immortelle.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Good morning all! We're expecting to remain somewhere in the vicinity of 80° here in the desert. We've yet to see winter here either, which chaps me no end. On the other hand, I am grateful to not endure what many around the world are experiencing.

    I'm testing PG L'Ombre Fauve this morning. It's ambery niceties will mean I can't have it, but the test is pleasant.

    Thumbing my nose at the slush in Guerlain Mayotte, whose coconutty mimosa vibe makes me crave a Mounds bar with champagne; must skip the bubble on account of work! Also, scanning bottles that are more than 3/4 empty and planning to use up the juice before it gets too much older, particularly the splashes, of which the Mayotte is one.

    saminlondon - I am not a big fan of Caron, I only own CPUH and I have owned Yatagan before, but the feminines I always struggle with (well, except for Tabac Blond). However I absolutely LOVED Nuit de Noel in parfum when I sampled it. It definitely made an impression on me. However I do remember saturating myself with the sample, I think I poured out the entire 1 ml sample on me.
    Xscent - Oh so you're jumping on the Eva Kant bandwagon. How do you like it? It's definitely making it's way 'round these parts.
    ComDiva, please be careful out there in the cold. I've never smelled JXXV on a woman before, sounds delicious.
    jujy54 - champagne & Mounds bars, sounds delicious. I haven't properly tested Mahora yet. My small decant I had went bad before I could sample it. I hate when that happens.

    Current cute constructions:

    I'll take a serving of champagne, but upgrade my Mounds Bar to an Almond Joy ;-).

    Guerlain Vol de Nuit Evasion. It's been so long since I wore this that my memory of it comes down to just one word: acceptable. Initially, my skin makes it a bit sour, but in a short time it turns toasty and friendly. Entirely acceptable as my SotD.
    Notes: Rose, peach; jasmine, iris; vanilla, amber, precious woods.

    I should mention, Mr. Q saw a robin on Sunday!

    Quarry love the pics. She's too fabulous for words and the Westwood wedding gown, wouldn't expect anything less.

    Jon rain and gales is winter here but I understand your disappointment about the lack of snow. Your plan to bunker down with caffeine, calories and Mozart while it’s stormy out is my idea of bliss.

    Mike congrats on the Floris! As for Eva Kant it was a gift from O’driu and since I had some kick ass heels to break in, I thought it fitting. The citrus notes have an aniseed quality to them and remind me of chinottos and sherbet lollies I use eat as a child. I don’t get much of the florals apart from some ylang and a hint of lavender. The citrus remains in the background for quite a while before amber and vanilla take over in the dry down. I enjoyed even though it’s not what I would usually go for and agree with the opinion that it would work well on a guy.

    Larimar how about I’ll set you up on the sun deck and wheel the drinks trolley out to you.

    Frou Frou tulips, Toulouse-Lautrec, 1950’s fashion, Paris! Gorgeous picture.

    ExtremeK there is always a guest suite ready for you. I’ll put you up in the library on the fourth floor, you can wake up to sunrise views over the river. I wonder if L'Eau d’Hiver might be a good spa scent for you?

    ErinK I take comfort in the three C’s, they never let me down. You and Jon sound like you all set for great couple of days in. An extra snuggle for Rockstar from me.

    ComDiva I’m just speechless, good luck at the orthodontist.

    Danieq no ticket necessary just swan on over and take a seat. I’ve repurposed a huge antique leather topped early Victorian library desk as my dining table. The beast sits 12 so plenty of room for all.

    Had a lovely catch up with friends at a little jazz lounge that does hand cut chips cooked in duck fat with truffle mayo. OMG! Yes, Please and Thank You. Just to round off a great night, my lovely neighbour dropped off another package with this inside. Just a small spritz of Apres L’Ondee tonight as well. Take care everyone.

    Hello friends. How are you all? Good I hope, and being good? Hmm? Well,on second thoughts never mind the being good, just as long as you are all OK.

    I haven't been around very much at all for a while now. (I probably haven't even introduced myself to our newer people.) Our family have had a very sad situation (no need to respond, please) and I haven't had time to be here. I have read you all sometimes though, and I have been enjoying your posts, and I have still been taking refuge in fragrance.

    So, I have loads to do. I don't have many new fragrances, if any?! But there is lots that I want to do. There are samples queuing up, Ormonde Jayne, Atelier Cologne, and I am "relaunching" with the help of Oriza L Legrand, which is great because they are so intriguing and they are making me engage my head as well as my nose!

    And of course whatI really want is to come back to cause some mischief!! So watch out!!!

    Oh! Scent of the day........

    Oriza L Legrand Déjà le Printemps and Jardin D'Armide.

    Take care everyone,
