    First time, from a bottle gifted to me:

    Avalon Juniper by Pacifica



    Reminds me of another Pacifica fragrance I had (Tibetan Mountain Temple) in that this has an incense/smoky wood sort of vibe. Not sure if I like it yet...but it works for something to wear before I go to Cross Fit.

    Happy V-Day, all!
    Hoping y'all get lovebombed, whether partnered or not. It's taking all I've got to resist the hippie lure of suggesting some form of self-love (stop smirking at the back!), but y'know...all of that, too. That's what I was telling myself as I gulped down a pint of spinach, avo and kefir smoothie this morning, at any rate.

    Oud Ispahan earned me a rare complement in this morning's food lab, when we were tasting various brands of baby formula *ugh*.

    Hello all,

    Happy Valentines Day! This week is filled with celebrations: Mardi Gras, Valentines Day, and Chinese New Year. We celebrate all three at our house!

    My scent of the day is Timbuktu. I’ve got the house of L’Artisan Parfumeur in rotation this month. Many credit Jean Laporte with starting the first niche brand in the 1970s. L’Artisan continues to be a
    tremendously creative line.

    Have a good day.

    Lol at your entire post, Miss Hesta! Baby formula sampling sounds yucky You deserve a treat after that!

    I'm sampling Indigo from 4160 Tuesdays' Our Modern Lives collection. Will choose something more suitably romantic later, though no special plans. I'll just smell pretty and eat some chocolate to celebrate VDay.

    Good morning and Happy Valentine's Day to you all!

    David and I are experimenting with intermittent fasting -- our version of it means we fast for 14-16 hours of each day. So the last 2 days, it's just coffee and sparkling water for me until about 11:30 am. It hasn't been bad so far, but this morning I woke up with a slight headache and taking pain relievers on an empty stomach will just end up making me sick. So I'm trying to figure out if this is a headache I can fight through for a few more hours or whether I need to grab some food now. Now that I'm at work and in front my computer screen, I'm leaning toward the food. Ugh.

    But, on a happier note, I'm wearing violets again today, this time in the form of the beautiful Arquiste Aleksandr.

    Happy Valentine's Day all!

    Wearing the rose fragrance I put together a few days ago. Dialed up the labdanum and olibanum resinoids a bit which seems to make the rose notes even deeper and darker! I'll be picking up some roses this afternoon for my wife so...sort of fitting that I'm wearing a rose scent.

    This weekend we're headed up to Quarry's neck of the woods. We'll be up in Milwaukee Saturday for a nice dinner and the Bon Iver concert I'm too excited!!!

    After this weekend I'll be starting a cleanse as well. No alcohol and cleaning up the diet a bit.

    Good morning, everyone! And happy Valentine's day to everyone.

    Miss Hesta, I'm not a hippie but I am absolutely down with self-love in all its forms. As for the spendy side of V-Day--meh. I spent too long in retail and restaurant work to have too much invested in buying stuff or dining out on this particular night. We usually chill out at home, cook something a little more special than usual, and do something cool for dessert. I like chocolate covered strawberries, and the easy way to do that is make some ganache (half chocolate and half cream), bring the pan to the table and do them fondue-style. Some bubbly might not be a bad idea, either. Hmmm.

    Sounds like everyone is getting revved up for Lent with all the cleansing and dieting. I tried to decide if there was anything I wanted to forgo for the season, but I've given up pretty much all my vices and I'm not gonna lay off perfume. (My dad used to joke about giving up stuff for Lent that he already didn't like--"I'm giving up cod liver oil" or something equally unpleasant that he didn't do in the first place). Lots of people give up booze, of course, which was a drag when I was in the wine business because it was not good for sales. I'm actually really happy with my size but I know I could be doing something better . . . . Gotta think about this some more.

    And, yes, Trilby Lark, it is Chinese New Year too! This is the year of the dog (of which I am one). I have received conflicting information about whether the year of one's own sign is a good year or a bad year.

    And last comment (other than getting around to the important business of actually posting my perfume choice)--did anyone else see Shaun White slay that halfpipe run last night? Not bad for an old fogey . . . .


    Today I'm wearing a new acquisition, Vilhelm Parfumerie's Dirty Velvet. Sandalwood fiends, take note. Mike, have you smelled it? This stuff is buttery and decadent in a way that sort of reminds me of Khol de Bahrein, but it's sandalwood butter and not iris/immortelle. I don't get much fig from it, but the sandalwood note is GORGEOUS, and the perfume wears like an expensive jersey t shirt--both basic and luxurious, and most comforting to wear. I'm now really curious about this house . . . .

    Good afternoon all !.





    Doing things the old fashioned way this year - champagne chilling, roses on display and about to put the chef's hat on
    Hopefully she won't be poisoned


    ExtremeK thanks for the info on Un Amourette . It won't necessarily be a miss just because of the animalic traits. Don't forget that I own both Ungaro II and Furyo so anything is possible and I will happily give it a sniff with an open mind. We are due to visit the revamped Les Senteurs sometime soon so I will certainly put it on the list.
