Hi Vic, today I'm wearing Etro Ambra and Sandalo and they are smellin mighty fine together! (I don't layer as a rule, but the folks at Etro say their frags are meant to be layered as well as worn singly, so when in Rome...) ;)
Enjoy your Thursday!

Have a wonderful day!

Ooh, Terry, Vic, Herr Hauschen-

Don't you smell outrageous today!

I layered Armani Prive's Ambre Soie with Poivre Samarcande... the crowd goes wild...

Enjoy glorious weather, if you've got it...

Herr Haus-
Sei mir gegrusst, sei mir gekusst-

Hello Victoria! Sous le Vent sounds wonderful. I'm wearing Bond No. 9 Chinatown, giving it a second try. I think I may be the only person on earth who doesn't like this one. :(

Greeneyes, Liebchen-

I don't think so...
I just can't warm up to Chinatown, when there are far more spellbinding orientals out there !
More for them, I suppose!

Dear Victoria,
Hi ! I always find lavender so soothing and relaxing - I am now very curious to find a Guerlain specialty shop i.e. Bergdorf Goodman ! I remember Rose Kennedy wore Guerlain. Today, for me - I am wearing Narcisco Rodriguez in it's Chypre lovliness. I was ready for it -- haven't been in the mood for it in a long time ! What is the best way to get Guerlain samokes other than Ebay - as I am not am Ebay girl. I am now curious about Guerlain.
Have a great day
Madelyn E

Victoria said...

Greeneyes, I didn't like Chinatown at first either. It's really more of a cool weather scent. I have a nice decant from a friend and I'm content with that.

Victoria said...

Hi Madelyn, well the Bergdorf Guerlain boutique would be a nice place to visit and sample a few. Unfortunately there are quite a few that are only available in Paris. Maybe a friend can eBay for you, or else a trip to Paris is in order!

Haus Von Stone said...

Liebe Hauschen-

Sorry about the gender confusion...
Don't you love Schubert, anyway?

I greet you and kiss you,regardless...

And if you're fond of lieder, all the better [that's my forte and great love as a mezzo, particularly Mahler and Brahms- especially if Christa Ludwig's doing the singing...] !

Shannon said...

I'm giving Daim Blond a test drive today ... finally! I had pretty much made my mind up that it would be too fruity for me, but guess what? I REALLY like it! Goes to show, that you never know ... oh and I got a compliment on it too!

Tommasina said...

Many apologies to everyone, especially Victoria, for using the blog for sthg other than perfume talk; but I don't know how else to contact Chaya (and I guess that, since this is already over a week old, it may still not get to her).

Chaya, I've just seen your post here to Haus von Stone, saying that you're a mezzo and love Lieder - same here! I gave a recital of Schubert (amongst other things) back in April, and am planning one for late this year / early next, to include Hahn and (other) settings of Verlaine...

Victoria said...

Hi Tommasina,
Oh I don't mind at all! But I doubt Chya is checking these old posts, you need to contact her on the current scent of the day thread! :O)

Tommasina said...

Victoria, thanks for the tip; I will contact Chaya as you suggsst: look out for me on today's post!
