Love your list! I vaguely remember what Kors smells like but you reminded me I need to revisit it. Wasn't it spicy? Rykiel Rose sounds interesting, too. Thanks for sharing this! :)

So there *is* a likeable CSP on your list! ;-) Of the florals you listed that I have tried, I love Iris Nobile, Mimosa and OJ Frangipani (I also love Champaca). I have untried samples of TDC Osmanthus and PdR Rose d'Ete...I'll have to get them out next week.

Ina, Sadly KORS is discontinued, but I love it dearly and have a big stash. Grab it where you find it! Here's my review:

Rykiel Rose is the prefect sparkling light rose for summer.

Hi Greeneyes, Yes I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my CSP Cool Tropic Palm. It's their vanillas that leave me flat. See my Cool Tropic Palm review here:

Hey Vic,

Susanne Lang's Black Orchid for me today.

I'm off to an estate sale.

Have a good Friday.

Dawn p.s. The Rance Musc sounds like something I may want to sample one day. I love musk scents. :)

Victoria said...

Ok, my dear, have fun! I'll make you up a sample!

I have 3 big favorites of mine on your list...Lovely list!!

Victoria said...

Oh yeah? I know two, the Safran Troublant and the DKNY Wenge, what is the third? :O)

Oh, I have a sampler size bottle of the TDC Divine Bergamote for hot days (THANKS MARLEN!!) and it is indeed divine.

I must try the Rance' musk - if it's half as good as Josephine I will have no choice but to like it.

Great list, and I am with you all the way on the florals!! :-)
