    This was the first time I've tried it and I didn't get much fruit from Flowerhead, the tuberose was the most dominant note. Didn't really notice the rose very much either. I liked it more than I thought I would. Still prefer La Tulipe, but not by very much.

    Trying out Aerin Lauder Evening Rose tonight.



    Have a good evening!

    Oh, my… these past few days on SOTD have been so entertaining! Between Kumquat’s photo of the luxurious comfort (matching!) caftans can offer, Mike’s exclamation of “Licorice + caftans for everyone,” RHM’s semi-utopian caftan community, and Cello’s hilarious soapy spin recap today, BN really needs a “Best Of” section somewhere to save these gems.

    ExtremeK, I am totally envious of your trees—they will be so beautiful!!!! I don’t have any space for trees unless I cut others down. ~10,000 measly sqft is considered a double lot here, and then so much is wasted on the set backs... My consolation prize for having a puny lot is a small, newly planted flower bed primarily in sunset colors with purple and dark blue accents plus lots of variegated foliage. I have a rose bed planned and a narrow border too, but still...

    SOTD was Vent Vert, and SOTE will very likely be Coco again, which I enjoyed so much last night.

    Quick halftime pop-in. In Iris Prima, which I've worn for the past 2 (or 3) Kentucky wins. Need to reapply for the 2nd half - we're trailing 40-36.

    cello, so cute! Post of day definitely goes to you! Cavorting with ISM was quite enjoyable indeed and there will be much more in future episodes.

    ExtremeK, that photo was apparently taken in Russia.

    Mike, can't wait to hear your news! I did a bunch of decanting this morning, too. Spilled quite a bit on my kitchen table, which was fine, because I refinished my table tonight and it is turning out great.

    Good job on the place, Jon! Nice pick!

    OK, back to basketball. If we win tonight (I mean, WHEN we win tonight) I may have to go out and do some real life cavorting, if I can only stay awake... *yawn.*

    cestrum, I'm a tree-hugger in every sense of the word. I used to live on 3.5 acres in a development only 20 minutes from my office, and I had planted 40-50 trees before I left, some fairly large, some just tiny little twigs from the Arbor Day Foundation. I haven't really been back since September 2012 to see how they're developing. Too hard. Your flower garden sounds *lovely*; variegated species are always so pretty with the darker colors. Do you have iris? When we do the rest of our front yard next year (shrubs, perennials, bulbs), it will be a true riot of color

    RHM, I love daffodils, too! Glad you enjoyed Beaker.

    I am (finally) sampling Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire, and I *really* like it. The vetiver and pepper dominate the opening, but there's an amazing bone-dry cedar underlying the whole thing that I keep trying to catch a whiff of. Very calming and grounding fragrance for me.

    Our internet is fixed! Yay! Repairmen called out to repair out next-door neighbor's internet/cable box broke ours while "fixing" theirs. <sigh>

    I'm sounding a bit like a broken record ... I wearing Daim Blond again. Xscent, I hope you enjoy yours as much as I've been enjoying mine!

    Erin, congratulations on the UK win ... must have been the Iris Prima re-spritz at halftime that turned the game around.

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

    I vote that Cello should supply the recap regularly! Awesome job!

    Caftans, that brings back memories. My mother used to live in them.
    I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
