Hi Vic, it's Lorenzo Villoresi Piper Nigrum today. The herbal notes it opens on are a perfect foil for the deep, rich, ambery base notes.

Hi Chaya, amber is the ultimate comfort note for me - I just love it!
Enjoy the day, dears!

Hi Victoria,
La Prairie Silver Rain today.
The bottle for that Roberto Cavalli is stunning, and the scent sounds lovely!

Have a happy day!

hello! Trying Floris Malmaison today - very spicy carnation, much like pure carnation essential oil. Interesting, but not sure about it for all the time. Just got 2 Parfumerie General samples in the mail! Tomorrow it's tea for me...No. 12 and No. 6! Chaya - do tell about the Amber! I have L'Occitane Ambre Solid Perfume on my desk in case of emergencies...

Victoria said...

Good Morning Chaya! Love that Amber Paste! Great to layer with any fragrance to give it more of an amber boost!

When it gets here going with Datura Noir

Victoria said...

Hi Terry, got your package, thank you! Have a lovely day!

Madelyn, Kuumba made is a very well respected small company that sells primarily oils. I believe the Amber Paste (not really a paste) is the best seller. You should definitely check them out. But their sweet ambers might not be for you, try on some of their other combos. The price is right about $8.99 for the small bottle.

Hi Greenenys, I think there is something tangy in the silver rain I don't like. That keeps me from loving it.

Roberto Cavalli is warm, sweet, powdery amber and magnolia. Similar to L'Instant, but this was out first. The Atlas cedarwood, gives the lightest overall woody impression. I don't think I've ever found another devotee of this scent, but I truly love it. To the point sometimes I wonder if it could be number one. Shhhh.

Victoria said...

Morning Haus! That Floris sounds great. I have a carnation review coming tomorrow - DSH Fresh Carnation.

Kuumba made has a website:

But I don't know if they will ship overseas.

:O)

Hi Jen, Thanks for stopping by this morning, have a lovely day!

Hello Again dear Victoria !
I will now eagerly anticipate a stroll down the vitamin, and toiletry aisle of Whole foods in addition to the F O O D aisles that I frequently (evidently) frequent. Thanks for tip! I learn so much from you and your fellow/sister perfumistas ! I think i may be leaning to a fall revisit of Frangipani (Chantecaille) and Velvet Rope !
Have a wonderful scented afternoon!

Hi Vic....

Your scent of the day sure sounds good. :)

I am sans scent today. I'm letting my sunburn heal.

Happy Wednesday.

Dawn

Victoria said...

Hi Dawn, lots of pure Aloe vera gel! Want me to bring you some Cavalli on Sunday?

Jen said...

Hi, Victoria. That Robert Cavalli sounds delightful.:-) Pure White Linen for me. I think this one is outside the realm of most scents that I like but I can't seem to get enough of it this summer.

Hiya, V. I'm wearing Antidote again today, having been testing it off on on all week. Nice.

Shannon said...

I'm wearing Dzing! today. A friend described it to me as "hot, sugared leather" and indeed it is!

Victoria said...

Hi Jen, I bought a decant of Pure White Linen for this summer, nice!

Victoria said...

Hi Katie, thanks for stopping by! I've not heard of that one. If you keep testing, it's a good sign. :O)

Victoria said...

Hi Shannon, enjoy your Dzing! Did you see the Perfume-Smellin'Things review of it today?
