    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am.

    Good morning, everyone!

    Just a few more days of TennisFest/US Open to go, and I'm in a bit of vintage Aliage for today's action. I brought most of my favorite tennis fragrances with me, and this is one from waaaay back when, but it still does the trick if I don't apply too lavishly (lots of strong and herby oakmoss in this one.) Fed's playing tonight - allez Roger! (We're super-fans, too Mocha - I mention Roger so frequently that kalli used to think I was referring to my husband, hehe ) But Dimitrov (aka BabyFed) is up first, and he's lots of fun to watch as well ...don't know who to pull for though in that one, as Monfils is yet another favorite ...the men's field is deep. (And btw, congrats to Murray, Jon. Tsonga made him work, but couldn't claim a single set - your man is looking good!)

    Okay then, I'll talk to y'all later - have a good one!




    You smell *wonderful* Claire, and I take it you've smelled wonderful all week - great choice!

    Oh, I did not realize that Aliage was a sport scent - how about that.

    Yesterday for the holiday I spent an afternoon down by the lake with some friends. Later evening my SOTE was Cuir de Lancome another sample provided to me by danieq. I am not familiar with leather scents but this was warm and cozy for me and I think it is my favorite from the samples I have tried so far.

    Today's SOTD is L.T. Piver's Heliotrope Blanche, a sample thanks to darkdreams. This has the familiar heliotrope-almond-vanilla accord. I am surprised by the sillage I am getting from this; it is very enveloping on me. I have some old Mary Chess Heliotrope left to compare it to.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Good morning, dearies! Thank you everyone who has been thinking of me (Jon ) in regards to the uber-promising first date, which totally blew any expectations out of the water.

    And Mike, don't you call me a straggler! Hehe. I spent the last two days in a veritable cocoon of post-date bliss. It was the best first date imaginable. He was a consummate gentleman. We had dinner at a fantastic restaurant, with cocktails and a bottle of wine and a bananas foster bread pudding for dessert, then had bourbon cocktails at a cool Prohibition-style jazz club. Even had a near crisis - I forgot the valet service closed at 11, and we were still on the town at 1. He cooly called the restaurant and told them the issue and sure enough they still had my keys. *Whew* And we even already have a song. I know, I know, Erin, you've only had one date, but I'm telling you. It was that good.

    Also, he loved Cuir de Russie. I told him it came out in 1924 and at the jazz club we mused that if we were back in time at a Prohibition-era nightclub, women would have been wearing the same scent. I think he appreciated the backstory. He thought it smelled like mint and anise (though we were standing next to the bar where they were using tons of fresh mint). That had me scratching my head, but hey, he's sniffing happily so I can't complain! I'm willing to bet I can make a perfumisto out of him.

    Evangeline, Norell is high on my vintage sniff list. From time to time I peek around ebay for a bottle. It sounds like something I'd love. Hyacinth and oakmoss...yes, please!

    (((ExtremeK))) Your photos are desktop-background-worthy. Wow; what a lovely trip! So good to see you. Sounds like things have been crazy for you lately; here's to hoping you're getting to enjoy some you-time.

    Mike, can't wait to hear how things are progressing with your new beau. He's a lucky guy.

    Today I'm in Diorella, 90s edt. I have asked for a bottle of this or Premier Figuier for my birthday (I turn 30 in 8 days, yee!) so we'll see if I end up with one. My parents are more likely to give me money but I'd rather have a bottle.

    Good morning everyone Seems like it's a romantic wave over Basenotrs these days Very happy for both of you, Mike and Erin I've just recently admitted to myself that I'm having a crush on one of my colleages. Just too bad he's been away for weeks now,due to his son recently was diagnosed with diabetes I'm too shy/ chicken to make any moves on him anyway. Sotd for me ended up as Egoiste. Quite happy about my choice Have a great day all !

    Hooray, ErinK!!! I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself, and I know you looked and smelled *fantastic*. We both had Prohibition-style jazz clubs in our weekends, but mine was the old-fogey version: David and I enjoyed a re-watching of "Midnight in Paris," which is such a *wonderful* film and makes me fall in love with Paris every time I watch it. You need to see it if you haven't. The Hemingway character couldn't be more perfect.

    RHM, I hope your back is improving.

    8 minutes until our hopefully-final conference call on the transaction I've been working on. Cross your fingers!!

    My collection feels woefully devoid of proper woody fragrances. I sense a couple of purchases coming on, including Jaisalmer. But today I'm wearing Cinema. It isn't quite hitting the spot, but it will do.

    [+2 on loving bourbon cocktails, especially those with fresh ginger!!]

    Wow Erin, that does sound like an excellent date, first or otherwise! Good for you, and for him!

    Hi there ExtremeK - long time no smell! I can tell you're having a great summer; I just went back to peek at your vacation photos - how very beautiful!

    Erin, sounds like an absolutely fantastic evening - fine dining and great company takes some beating, doesn't it ? - I imagine the time flew by.


    Mrs E, thanks for the congrats . I won't be counting any chickens where Murray is concerned though, just cautiously crossing fingers.

    I've been wearing Cabaret to wear around lots of hospital and doctor appointments, including the joys of having needles put into my knee joints with no anaesthetic (thanks doctor, I was hoping you'd numb it first!) so now I'm here in my recliner with both of my quadriceps twitching at about 3 times a second frequency, with my knee joints sending shooting pains with every twitch. I sure hope that this stops before bedtime.

    I had a wonderful time at the wedding this weekend in Cincinnati! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Now that I'm back at work, I'm super busy...even though I only took 1 day off work. I promised a picture (I don't look my best but oh well!), I'm missing the suit jacket in this one but it gives you an idea of what I was wearing.



    I'll be back with more on the wedding tomorrow when things calm down. Today, trying to stay non-stressed with all this work in Bruno Fazzolari Lampblack (I ended up buying another after my brother stole mine.)

    I had a minute during my lunch break....here's a better photo other than the Pee Wee card dealer haha.

    ClaireV - congrat's on a week of Lyric Woman, I haven't done that in a LONG TIME. I think the trick is to pick the right fragrance. I am pretty sure I could do that with Shalimar.
    ErinK - so glad to hear your weekend was great sweetie...I always enjoy hearing non-fragrance people describe what they're smelling when we ask them to sniff us...it can be interesting and a bit bizarre also. Your description of your evening made me think about the scent Jazz Club by Maison Martin Margiela, which I have a sample of at home & haven't worn yet. Thanks for asking about my guy - more details to come...for now I am very excited about spending time together. We hung out most of the weekend.
    sfmedusa - I hope that your pain goes away quickly
    rynegne - glad to hear the wedding went well, I think the outfit looks good...although I must admit it has a whiff of Las-Vegas-blackjack-dealer to it...maybe it's the vest. lol


    For some odd reason today I felt like being 'overwhelmed' with a scent, so I reached for my sample of:

    Zahd by Slumberhouse



    About 5 hours into the scent, the most prominent orange blossom/neroli scent appears out of nowhere - underneath the huge cranberry sludge. Very interesting. Every time I wear this it's a different experience.

    Inspired by Evangeline, I sampled both my Grandiflora today. Michel when I exercised with friends and Sandrine after showering and dressing.

    Sfmedusa, feel better soon!

    Rynegne, that is one huge smile you are wearing; it would make any outfit look good! As an aside, Mike, I think it's the red bow tie that says "All bets, please."

    Erin, so glad you had so much fun.

    Evangeline, that's such a funny Federer story. To be fair, there are a lot of us who have dreamed of having him as a husband.

    Jon, probably no one feels that way about Andy Murray.

    No - just kidding! I'm sure many girls have a poster of him. I'm just too old. I remember a friend in college who had a Mats Wilander poster, which made me feel old at 19, because that meant Bjorn Borg was passι already. And Bjorn Borg still makes my heart flutter -- even today. Remember those Fila shirts and the short shorts? Deep sigh.
