    Good morning all !. Loved the photos ExtremeK


    SotD is Montale Sandflowers.








    Does exactly what is says on the tin - sun kissed sand, oceanic breeze, light florals, rounded off with a bracing juniper. Eyes shut, deep breaths - we're back in NZ strolling by the Pacific on Waimiari Beach (he wishes ). A real sleeper, worthy of more attention, IMO.

    Coincidentally, I noticed that maisonstinky celebtrates his birthday today and always recall him being one of our biggest Montale afficionados. Any of the old school remember Vijay ?.

    Hi everyone,

    Wishing you a lovely Thursday in Beige tonight by mistake (was going for Bel Respiro). Just been one of those days, need a cuddle and a coffee. Heading off to barre and pointe before I find an excuse not to go. Will check in later. How beautiful is this costume!

    Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille for today. The weather had been so nice the last few days, and now it's freezing again. Not happy about that, but on the bright side, the combo of cold weather + Un Bois Vanille never fails me.

    Hello, everyone -

    I'm in Dior New Look 1937 again - I suppose I've fallen for it. It's another of Sylvie's and it really surprised me because I initially found it quite sweet and, actually, a bit boring ...but once again, first impressions can be very misleading. At the moment I'm in ylang, iris and rose bliss ...maybe some peony too, but it's a listed note, and I'm not sure I'd be getting any if I hadn't read that. Peony and rose can be difficult to isolate within a composition. But peony or not, it's a gorgeous floral bouquet, lush, feminine and sophisticated, everything you'd expect from Dior and Demachy ...and there's just enough sweetness from the rich vanilla that my little ballerinas give it their approval, too. Y'all know that's important to me, and I won't even try to lie about it; I absolutely *crave* the precious little compliments of 4-yr olds.

    Y'all have great day!




    Congratulations on your 32nd year together, Tdem - that's *so* wonderful! I bet the next 32 are even better!
    Here's to the romantic couple!

    Tdem, congrats on your anniversary! I hope the two of you enjoy a lovely celebration.

    Grabbed an old sample that I was initially not "getting", so will try it again after a few years.
    FM Le Parfum de Therese for me today. Probably just too pretty for me, but we will see how the day goes.

    cello - do you find Le Parfum de Therese very similar to Quartz? I've read that several times - I suppose it's because of the melon note, but I don't get a heavy melon note in Quartz, and it certainly couldn't be described as "too pretty." At any rate, I've wanted to go back and try LPdT again, but I don't remember my impressions at all, so nothing has been really compelling me to go back to it, and I already know and love Quartz, so I figured I wouldn't bother ...unless you think it's worth it by the end of the day. Our tastes often run in parallel lines, but they intersect every now and then.

    Happy Anniversary to the Tdems. Love the photo, what a stunning bride! Wishing you the most lovely of days and many happy years together.



    Sampling Jalanine Patchouli this evening. Sweet, warm, creamy and aromatic. How best to describe it? Clean warm skin anointed with vanilla, amber and touch of bitter chocolate. It delivers that unctuous, velvet patchouli note with an earthy muskiness that and makes you feel all squirmy inside. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say if you like patchouli you need to try this one.

    ExtremeK and Danieq I wonder if this one might appeal to your gourmand inklings? Given it's a perfume oil don't expect a huge amount of projection but the sillage is quite divine. I find it very special…

    teardrop - oh yes, I YouTube'd many of those episodes where Ben was dancing. Joe tipped me off to it. Yeah he definitely used his shirtless chest to score some brownie-points with the judges. Which was totally fine with me. I took a picture of my BC calendar this morning.



    Evangeline - I love Mercer's voice (sometimes, to me, he sounds like Morrissey) but I haven't listened to any of his Broken Bells stuff. Hope you enjoyed the show
    ExtremeK - glad you enjoyed your b'day & wow those pictures of your trip are amazing. Just beautiful! And yes, I can drink as much water as I want now - although I am trying to drink only distilled water (aka purified water) since when you're cleansing even the slightest amount of toxins (in tap water for instance) can give you weird side effects.
    Jon - I saw those new Montale's you just got. I am only familiar with Blue Amber but not Sandflowers - what's it like?

    (((Xscent))) -- I hope your night was a vast improvement over your day The only thing in your description of that patchouli that gives me any pause at all is the bitter chocolate. I tend not to do well with chocolate or cocoa in fragrance -- the lone exception is Mazzolari Lei, which is so wonderfully cozy and comforting, as Kiliwia has discovered But I'm willing to try anything once -- I'll track some down!

    Very Happy Anniversary wishes to the tdems. Terry, seriously, have you aged at all??? Just lovely

    I have a slight headache this morning that I'm hoping to kick ASAP. Sigh.

    In the meantime, I'm wearing Micallef Gaiac again. It's wonderful and it doesn't seem to be exacerbating my headache, which unfortunately seems to be growing stronger even as I'm typing this. Crud.

    Good morning!

    Happy anniversary, Tdem! I absolutely love seeing couples who have been together for many years and are still excited about their anniversary. How sweet and romantic that you are wearing your hubby's favorite, which has such an appropriate name!

    easyfish, the model in that ad is SO gorgeous. Do you know who she is? I googled "model in Balmain de Balmain ad" and among the search results was the news that Rihanna is modeling for Balmain Spring 2014 so naturally I looked at the photos...yeesh!

    cello, Therese grew on me over several samplings. I have been thinking of ordering a bit. For me the slightly off-kilter overripeness of the fruit keeps it from being too pretty. Then again, I think my first sampling of it was worn to a very hot and sweaty dance hall, so I will probably always associate it with the free-spirited funkiness & flirting of a contra dance.

    My wee decant of Sarrasins has arrived and it's the sotd. That's a big jasmine! Then, more florals come in and I can't figure them all out..maybe Sweet Pea? Honeysuckle? And I get honey too, a floral, animalic honey. I dig the purple juice..even if it's just food coloring or whatever he used to get it that way, lol.

    ((ExtremeK)) down some meds and wrap your head honey. I have a feeling I know where this headache will morph into if you don't take action quickly. As for the Jalaine, the chocolate is not at all pronounced, there's just a touch and it's a cosy chocolate. The amber and earthy vanilla (more vanilla bean) are more prominent and combined give off that slightly powdery almond note. There's no sharpness, nothing jarring it's soft, smooth, luxurious tendrils of enticing scent. The fragrance cocoon hoovers just a few inches off the skin. It's one where someone would have to lean in close to smell and I suspect they would likely want to stay close after. To me it's cosy, the image that comes to mind is drinking hot chocolate and snuggling with someone under a cashmere blanket in a room lit only by flames from a fireplace. I went about improving my night with an affogato and half dozen Baci chocolates. Nothing gets me down for long, there's too much good living (and eating) to do.

    Mike nice view, in that particular shot he looks like one of my ex's, just needs slightly longer hair.
