    I'm taking a short break from Neil Morris scents to participate in Theme Week. I'll be sampling a fragrance from 4160 Tuesdays called Doe In the Snow, many thanks to the wonderful PerfumedLady! One of it's main notes include oakmoss which I enjoy. Has anyone heard of this fragrance? I'll report back on my thoughts soon!

    Morning all!

    Love and Tears By Kilian from a sample. Lovely, slightly soapy jasmine.

    Good morning all!
    I am testing Vraie Blonde today. So far so good - peachy, chocolatey champagne!
    It's quite effervescent with a strong cocoa powder note.
    Mind you, I'm wearing it over Palmer's Cocoa Butter self tanning lotion so I may be picking that up as well.
    Any love for this one?

    Hi, folks!
    N.Cal, I haven't smelled Doe in the Snow, but 4160 Tuesdays is on my radar, and DitS sounds really interesting and like something I might enjoy, too. Please let us know your thoughts!

    Atelier Santal Carmin for me today, from a sample.



    At least so far, the citrus top notes keep this from being overpoweringly heavy in the heat, though it's definitely a warm and snuggly fragrance. Much more for cooler weather. I really like this one, though (keep repeating to self, "I do *not* need another sandalwood right now! I do *not*...").

    I'm going to be off the board for the next little while - Hip replacement surgery tomorrow. I hope to check back in some time over the weekend, but it may be a bit longer. Meanwhile, everyone be well, have fun, and keep smelling fabulous!


    Santal Carmin fragrance notes: Lime, Bergamot, Saffron, Sandalwood, Guaiac wood, White musk, Papyrus, Texas cedarwood, Madagascar vanilla.
    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

    ComDiva, sending wishes that your surgery and recovery go smoothly!

    I'm wearing C & E Sandalwood today; I might put something floral over it in a little while just to experiment.

    Sending my very best to ComDiva! Will be thinking positive, smooth-sailing thoughts for you!

    Yep, I liked Vraie Blonde a lot, kewart! I got a champagne vibe, too. And love that peach!

    So glad you're digging right in to DitS (hilarious abbreviation), N.Cal! You might be interested to know that the pamphlet that came with my bottle also lists a chocolate note, which I haven't noticed listed anywhere else. Not enough to move it from chypre territory into gourmand, but I do detect in the drydown and find it an interesting and very enjoyable twist. But it's mostly the interplay between icy peach and bitter moss that really enthralls me here. Excited to hear what you think, however it turns out for you!

    I'm in a green cheapie, Yardley Royal English Daisy. Very glad I picked this one up; it's proven to be a lovely little wildflower meadow and green apples scent for summer. Bound to offend no one, nor will it challenge the intellect. Just a happy scent to wear.

    Good luck with the hip surgery, ComDiva!

    It's still unseasonably cool here with highs in the 80s. I reached for my bottle of 24 Fauboug but I'm afraid it's gone off. I acquired it used, and I suspected it was on its last legs then. Rats. Diva it is!
