Morning all!

Mike, l have a confession to make; the one l own is Eau de Shalimar, & not Eau Legere, which l have never tried. lt's listed as Eau Legere in my wardrobe, because when l got my bottle, Eau de Shalimar wasn't in the directory. And l don't want to change it now, because that would skew my stats! ;)

Seville a l'Aube today.

Hello all. Inspired by the '500 greatest modern perfumes' list I'm in Angel Liqueur de Parfum, which makes the cut at #160.

Good morning! Wearing Mitsouko for a lovely day of babysitting, dog walking, and, hopefully, a bit of time to pick up the "stuff" I bought at a local auction (lamps and vintage china).

Thanks to all of you for the congrats! You are each so special to me in your own unique ways. Life may get in the way of fragrance at times but I could never stay away from my SotD pals for good. Love you all.

Kiliwia, I'll never forget that you were my first BN friend! You have a very special place in my heart. You set the standard for kindness and bring us beauty and grace in every post you make. Congrats on your 7k milestone!

No.5 EDT today; here's hoping to a good week for us all!


Somebody made me a mod?

Congratulations on your posting milestones, Perfumed Lady and Kiliwia. Your posts contribute so much to my enjoyment of the forum.

Yesterday just whizzed by me, I went on an eight-mile hike and by the time I was showered, fed, and had taken care of the beastie it was almost bedtime, so no scent. Today I'm sampling Bois d'Encens. Smooth and lovely, but I already have a bunch of incense in my collection and don't know if I can justify another one when there are other things I want. I'll think on it. :undecided:

Congratulations dear Kiliwia on your posting milestone! :kiss:

L'lnstant this evening.

Tomorrow l'm back in the classroom again to commence the next module of my degree course. This time l have to travel 90 minutes on public transport to reach the venue, so it'll be a long day. Must try to get an early night tonight!

I didn't go into work today. Yay!

From a sample:

Jasmin Rouge by Tom Ford


Nope! I keep trying it and this just annoys the heck out of me.

teardrop - no worries must try Shalimar Eau Legere when you's even better than the one you own!
kumquat - that is my FAV version of Eau des Merveilles...chocolate-y, yummy saltiness.
