    When I tried both EDP and EDT in winter, I preferred EDP because of this cosiness, and EDT seemed a bit harsh/medicinal/too lavendery in the opening and not as enveloping. But since all the cards were in EDTs favour - I found a very, extremely, amazingly good deal on EDT; it's a very hot summer and my only air conditioning system is a window; while I never liked lavender much, I became half obsessed by it during the lockdown as I found it really calms me; I'm using up my last drops of Terre de Lumiere; the EDT actually blooms beautifully in warm weather... I went for it. No regrets!

    Quite a coincidence—I have the same brand of air conditioner!

    Congrats on the good deal. Enjoy!

    Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom because I'm starting my Jo Malone month and wanted one of the lighter ones from my collection. Most of my Jo Malones are of the dark or black variety.

    The Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier samples have arrived.
    Some of them seem extraordinary from a quick sniff from vials:
    Bois de Turquie - I think I found my amber, my orris and my sandalwood i've been searching for in one single perfume. Wow!;
    Jardine du Nil;
    Ambre Mythique;
    Ambre Precieux;
    Ambre Dore;
    Grain de Plaisir;
    Rose Opulente;
    Parfum d'Habit (own and love a red bottle)

    Some I don't like at all:
    Patchouli 1969;
    Iris Bleu Gris (way too green, I think it's galbanum);
    Garrigue;
    Route de Vetiver.




    Let's change the rules of the game a little bit - I start with the ones I don't like, to exercise patience:

    So Route de Vetiver

    In fact it has a very good longevity. After a while it reappeared and lasted for many hours.
    I wrote in my organizer to test it on October 1st when the weather is cooler.

    The longevity on my skin is abysmal - less than one hour. It's hot outside (28 degrees C).

    It got cloudy and cooled off a bit so I figured it's a good chance to wear D&G Pour Homme.

    Agreed she did a great job on that description!


    Today wearing Guerlain Idylle edt. A breath of fresh air, with character. With the bottle half empty, I ordered backup too. Usually I see a dwindling container as half full, but when it comes to perfume in the permanent collection, it’s half empty and time for backup.

    What style of bottle are you getting? I love the traditional teardrop shaped one. I have not tried Idylle yet.

    My current bottle of edt is the teardrop. The website shows the bee bottle. The teardrop bottle is more distinctive and an interesting modern design imho; the bee bottle is easier to handle and has a great sprayer. I’m easy. Will post result when it arrives. If you do try Idylle, looking forward to your impressions.

    Thank you, ladies!

    Today I wore Elizabeth Arden Green Tea for work - I wanted a light scent both because of the weather and because I knew I'll get my package with Shalimar Souffle de Lumière in the evening. Now I'm wearing that and slowly getting acquainted with it. I know I like normal Souffle and the new d'Oranger flanker, but I bought this one untested. I'm always getting too curious with fragrances that are discontinued or aren't normally available in nearby shops and can be found on discounter sites. I do sometimes blind buy them instead of getting something I know I already like. I had several disasters, but I found some of my favourites this way, too. But blind buying Guerlains and Shalimar flankers usually ends up well with me.

    FiveoaksBouquet, I did try and liked Idylle quite a lot. It's a very beautiful and soft floral.

    Tommy Bahama St. Kitts: I haven't worn it in a long time, but the fruitiness in Louis Vuitton's Afternoon Swim made me think of St. Kitts, so I got it out and wore it today.

    I still find it a very enjoyable summer fragrance which is underrated, considering it's (cheap) cost.
