    We are going through a few colder days here before going back up into the low twenties (Celsius). This morning, I wore LPRN Black Perfecto EDP by Guerlain on one arm & LPRN EDP by Guerlain on the other arm to compare them! This afternoon, I will be trying out a few of my newer purchases that were bought in either spring or summer to see how I like them in the colder April weather.

    Have a good day!

    We have a mixture of sunshine and clouds this morning and I
    am wearing Plum Japonais.

    I really need to have "kondo-type" sort out of my wardrobe(s) this week
    and replace winter clothes with lighter ones. Maybe it would work for perfumes too.
    Only items that "spark joy" should be retained.

    Hello and best to everyone. Kewart I just did the same with a batch of old, evaporating samples, dibs and dabs with hardly a wearing to them. It felt virtuous.

    SOTD is Narciso eau de parfum. Enjoy your day, all.

    Hi, everybody!

    Kewart and tdem, I also just went through my (ridiculously abundant) collection to dust/declutter, and have come away with a BIG batch of samples and a few bottles of stuff to offer up or possibly swap at the Chicago meet-up. I still have more perfume than I will ever be able to wear (and still have stuff on my "to test" and wish lists), but do feel a bit virtuous about having culled a bit.

    Another day of random to-test selection for me today, Ex Idolo Lucid Dream.




    I do really like this, but need to try it again when I don't also have powder on my skin - want to make sure that what I'm smelling, which is that it reminds me of La Rosine's Rose d'Homme (which I already own), is really the fragrance and not my inadvertent layering! Also looking forward to seeing how it progresses over the day.

    Speaking of which - Wish-fulfilling Wednesday to all!

    Lucid Dream fragrance notes: Pink pepper, Davana, Osmanthus, Rose, Incense, Patchouli.
    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

    Good morning! Wearing Robert Piguet Futur, which is perfect for spring, with narcisse, hyacinth and galbanum. Kind of ironic since we're expecting 4-6 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow.

    Have a great day!

    Kiliwa, I love florals in the winter, though our winter is not snow-cold, but that sounds like such a nice smell for the cold dry air.

    I am in Frapin 1270 for today, generously applied.

    Good morning, everyone!

    I, too, have been poking around my samples, in part because I've completely lost control of them and in part to get ready for the Chicago meet-up. ComDiva, how funny (sad?? scary?? absurd??) would it be if none of us actually *reduced* the number of our samples but simply reallocated them among ourselves? I could totally see that happening.

    The sample I pulled out this morning is Anatole Lebreton Incarnata. Listed notes are raspberry, violet, rhododendron, lipstick, iris, myrrh, rose, amber, suede, benzoin, vanilla. It is such a fascinating fragrance, and I think the one BN review of it (by jtd) is spot-on. It has a stunning iris note that has a weird sweet sharpness underneath it -- maybe the myrrh? I totally agree with jtd's suggestion that the "color" of the fragrance is not pinkish or violet-ish but rather a steely chic gray.

    What's crazy is that as much as I'm fascinated by it, I can't decide if I'd actually enjoy wearing it. I do know I keep sniffing it. I think I just don't know what to do with it.

    Hello all,

    I’m joining the other green wearers (Deep Forest and Futur) in Diptyque Eau de Lierre. It’s a fresh green as opposed to a deep green. A perfect early spring scent. I enjoyed smelling it while walking the French bulldog, Tyrion, around the neighborhood. We passed a blossoming orange tree. There are still some around town, a legacy of the days when Orange County was filled with them.

    Have a good day.

    Aliage by Lauder (1972). Skanky greens and herbs. Together, Inespeenes and I could probably clear a room today.

    That just seems downright cruel.

    I think that might be a hallmark of Lebreton perfumes. I had the exact same experience with Grimoire.

    If I culled all my clothing that didn't "spark joy", I'd be left with only pajamas.
