    Good morning all !. thediamondsea, I was so sorry to read such sad news about your friend. My sincerest condolences.

    Btw, I am completely unfamiliar with Commodity Tonka but will attempt a discovery mission in the near future (I believe we have an outlet in London).

    Morning all,

    Happy Birthday, ComDiva!! Best to you

    teardrop, I've never heard of that fragrance or the brand! Must fix that next time I order samples from Luckyscent! Thank you!

    Mike, suprisngly I've never tried Shalimar Eau Legere, because Shalimar and I are not exactly friends. The only "Shalimar light" flanker I tried was Souffle de parfum (and possibly Cologne) and I didn't like it. My problem with all Shalimar flankers is that they are still recognizably Shalimar to me, in that very way that bothers me in the first place, except for Souffle, which was nothing really

    We have a chilly wather here this morning so I am wearing Kilian Incense Oud from a sample.

    Have a nice day all!

    Morning all, Happy Anniversary to Mr & Mrs kewart, & Happy Birthday ComDiva!

    Vernona, you're welcome! And if you can't find Eau Legere, l recommend Eau de Shalimar, which is very similar. lt's something l think you might enjoy more in the cooler months for your lemon-vanilla fix.

    lt's a sunny day here, & we're off out for lunch. l'm wearing Viva.

    Continuing the sampling session of Ganache parfums.

    Vanilla Custard is like a melange of all the sticky, sweet things you can imagine; the caramel, the condensed milk, vanilla pudding, ice cream, burnt sugar, whipped cream, all at once. The aromas exchange from one minute to the next. I like it, but it's a wee bit too much even for me.

    Arroz con Leche - I was hoping for more milk and rice. Instead there's a whole lot of nutmeg and cinnamon. Nutmeg always turns fragrance into masculine for me, so that is what happened here too. Other than that, not bad at all.

    I must say that, after my first dissapointment with Coconut Flan, I was expecting the others to follow the same path. I'm happy to say that it's not true, and these other 4 were all good. I shall conclude it must be that bloody coconut that simply can't be done right! My favourite so far is Lemon Eclair, but sadly that one was also the shortest lasting. Second favourite is Ice Cream Shoppe and while yesterday when I posted my impressions it felt like it would be gone in no time, I must say it lasted almost the whole day! Yes, the projection was low, but it was there! And low projection is not neccessarily a bad thing with this type of fragrance.

    Good morning, everyone! I'm just popping in for a quickie. I'm working on a cherry pie for dinner--oops: *after* dinner (Freudian slip ). Actually, it is more or less dinner--we're having a big ol' salad with kale, romaine, carrots, red and yellow bells, cukes from the garden, and cherry tomatoes from the garden, so the pie is sort of a second course as well as dessert. It's extremely warm and humid here today, and this pastry better behave.

    Happy birthday to ComDiva!

    And congratulations to the kewarts--I hope you're having a wonderful day!

    After a couple of false starts, I'm going with 24 Faubourg for the official SOTD. I believe I am officially on an orange blossom bender. Good times!

    Topping up Viva with more coconut + tuberose this evening, in the shape of Tuberose Diabolique.

    My SOTD is Wood Sage and Sea Salt over Tuberose Angelica leftover from yesterday. That's the way I layer on a lazy Sunday morning!

    An odd combo that works:

    Habit Rouge vintage Deodorant + Miel de Bois by Serge Lutens (from sample)



    I had an itch to wear something with honey - this surely satisfies.


    Happy Birthday ComDiva - you've been missed!
    Vernona - Shalimar Eau Leger *is* a Shalimar scent...so you probably won't like it
    kewart - Happy Anniversary!
