Hi Miss Vic, the notes for Ange ou Demon sound lovely! I'm wondering how much orchid is in there - that note tends to amplify like crazy on me. Today I'm wearing Dior Addict, beautiful vanilla with a green note that gives it a fresh, edgy dynamic.
Enjoy your day!

Does this sound better than it smells, to you, V?

It's cooler, and I've got KM's Genie Des Bois on...

Great if you like woods and violets [I do !]

Howdy, all-

Dear Victoria,
I love Ange ou Demon- very smoky and sexy - sort of like Dolce Vita ..I think. Today I really need a lift so it's Luciano Soprani Donna ! It's like sunshine !
Have a lovely day hopefully with a steaming cup of delicious coffee or tea !

Good Morning Victoria!

I started to wear Ange ou Demon this morning but opted for Omnia instead. I absolutely LOVE both fragrances although I do ten to lean more towards the exotic, spicy scents.

Ooops! Please forgive my error. I "tend" to lean towards the exoctic scents. (Not awake yet).

Hi Vic,

Prada Tendre for me today. I'm popping a sample of it the mail to you today. :)

This one although nice, really falls short of capturing my heart. It is pleasant enough, but not the sort of thing I would reach for. And on me, it is very, very light. I have a miniature (adorable bottle) and I have used 1/2 the bottle this morning and plan on touching up before my noon meeting. So Chaya, I would agree the notes sound better than the compositions ends up. I have no idea where the woods are. I also don't get much saffron. I have a friend who bought it for the saffron note, but I can hardly detect it. And Terry, yes the orchid is prevalent. The redeeming quality I think, but maybe too much for you.

This is all angel no devil. Light, sweet, fresh, but sadly a tad generic on me.

But don't get me wrong, it is "nice", I'm sure it will garner some compliments. I might really enjoy this one if I librally applied it over an amber oil. :O)

Hi Victoria! Mmm...you like Ange or Demon? The notes sound quite nice! Etro Heliotrope for em today...trying to recover from vacation! ;-) Smell overload!

greeneyes said...

Whoops...I should have read your response to Chaya before I asked if you liked Ange ou Demon. Oh well...like I said, still recovering!

I wore Lancome Hypnose today. You know I'm crazy about the bottle, but just can't decide if I should buy it or not ... I did get two compliments this morning and one girl wrote down the name! She hardly ever comments on what I wear, but she went totally nuts for Hypnose today.

Wow, Ange ou Demon sounds delish!

I need to feel girly today after being down with a bad cold for several days, so it was Annick Goutal Gardenia Passion for me. Can't go wrong with that one!
