    Will be Coromandel by Chanel!

    Friday's scent (TF Black Orchid) does not seem to last on my skin at all which frustrated me all day, but Coromandel is the one I own with the best longevity for me so I'm going for that today.

    Hello all!
    Chanel Coromandel today.

    N.CAL, I used to own L'instant but gave it away as I got bored with it pretty soon. It was very soft and short living on me, required constant re-application.
    But besides that it is a very pretty scent, soft powdery vanilla with some honey and a certain white flower note. It reminds me of a lighter version of Angelique Noire drydown.

    Good Morning my beloved Ladies and dear Gentlemen . Wish you all a very happy weekend


    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. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Afternoon all!

    After a lazy start to the day, l'm off outside to mow the lawn in Demeter Rain, from my sample.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    Comme des Garcons Original EDP

    I sent my proposal to a professor that I took an intro level course with, but I've previously only discussed it with professors that I know very well who read a lot of my work. And now its really setting in that I have to convince people who don't know me that I'm really interesting! She told me I "might want to write it several times" as if that wasn't my hundredth version XD So now I am trying to perfect this one again. I'm starting to worry that I won't ever have enough time for the other one.

    Hi, all!

    Re L'Instant, the extrait shown, I tested it and, like Vernona, found it to be a very soft, pretty, powdery scent, but declined to buy it because of a suspicion I might tire of it quickly.

    I've been enjoying soft leather and now ambrette is beginning to bloom. Lots of stages to enjoy and look forward to in this perfume: Oud Saphir.

    Zibeline, I almost wore the fabulous Detchema today but I went with the less fab but perfectly nice Gabriela Sabatini, Gabriela Sabatini for no other reason than it's 106F out and I'm in and out of the house in the ongoing process of papa's house clearing- just couldn't treat Detchema that way , LOL

    N.CAL Fragrance Reviewer I like L'instant and have a small bottle, but I rarely wear it and wish I had bought L'instant Magique instead.

    Well fragrant friends, I am weary of this incessant desert heat so tomorrow I am taking dad's girlfriend with me for a 2 day break north in Oak Creek, just outside Sedona. It's generally cooler there, due to altitude. We'll be staying adjacent to the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village (built in 1971), so we will do some strolling and window shopping and eating.

    I'm extending the lavender synch a day by wearing Czech & Speake Oxford & Cambridge today. If hard pressed, I would name this my favorite lavender fragrance.

    NCal FR, I love L'Instant! To me, it is a rich honey-ed magnolia on a bed of fluffy powder. I have received several compliments while wearing it, including a male co-worker asking me to write the name down so he could purchase for his wife. (which he did, and she loved it too!)

    knit, sounds fun! We always intended to visit Sedona when my husband's friend lived there. But he's back in Kansas, so we don't have the excuse any longer ... pity.

    enjoy your weekend, everyone!
