What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I'm one of those gals that are obsessed with fragrances and have about around 50 60 70 80 and still collecting...(if you want to call it that.) So I would like to know what are you wearing today?

 

I'm wearing Obsession...(hahaha kinda fits this thread, doesn't it? Smiley Very Happy)

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Today, I'm wearing CdG's Jaisalmer, which is from their Incense series. It is a spicy woody scent, the type of scent CdG does so well. While the notes state the woody note is guiac wood, I actually smell a gentle, well-rounded cedar that’s not too sharp. Think resins rather than pencil shavings. The cedar pairs harmoniously with a dry, piquant pepper in the opening that gives way to the warmth of cardamom and cinnamon. Simple, but very pleasant and fragrant. Like a soothing cup of chai in a cute Scadinavian cafe. My only regret with Jaisalmer is that the projection is very weak. It becomes a skin scent very quickly and after the third hour it is difficult to detect. How I wish it lasted longer!

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Wearing Ex Idolo's 33, a rose-oud, which I haven't worn in a long time. I definitely found it a touch too harsh when I first tried my sample. The roses were velvety and plush but there was this wood varnish cleanser note that I found really unpleasant and jarring. The notes list includes "Damascus steel" so I'm guessing that was it. Today, it's definitely there, but it seems to blend better than how I remembered. It gives the fragrance an interesting interplay between warmth and coolness. Interestingly, the cool edge also lends it a depth. At times, it's quite lovely but not in a sentimental or "pretty" way. I know some people love it but it's not my favourite rose-oud.

Today I am wearing Ralph Lauren Tender Romance. Love this stuff as it lasts throughout the day and has a light vanilla scent to it

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Had a long meeting today and now I'm home alone, treating myself to Papillon's Salome, a gorgeous animalistic oriental. Think lush floral notes, swirling musks and a sprinkling of cumin and spice. Salome has a reputation for being filthy. It definitely has a post-coital vibe to it, but it's much more structured, refined and beautiful than many of the reviews let on.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I've been trying to convince myself spring is around the corner with floral scents.  I'm really into Nomade by Chloe right now, but today I'm wearing Tory Burch Love Relentlessly.  It's a very cheerful floral, like a picnic in the park.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Chloe Nomade is a very good scent. I also like Love Relentlessly Smiley Happy @RachFace2921

RE: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Even though it’s warming up outside, I’m wearing Stash by SJP- so warm and smoky!

Excellent choice; my favorite!

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Not a Perfume from Juliette Has a Gun (key note is Cetalox).  I got this as part of the Juliette Has a Gun Discovery Kit last year and didn't touch it for months, because when I sprayed it on a piece of paper I was unimpressed.  It wasn't nasty smelling, just boring.

 

But I should have known better.  I don't know why, but every single perfume from that line smells better once I spray it on my body, and this one is no exception!  It's still a simple fragrance, but somehow it smells sexier on me than it did on the piece of paper.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Met a distinguished guest today from Europe, so I wore Chanel's Bois des Îles. It's my go-to for such occasions when I want to present myself as chic and polished.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Haven't been able to login for awhile! I've been wearing Malle's Une Fleur de Cassie. It's such a feminine scent, it's practically purring. The opening is complex with shimmering facets of bright citrus, furry musk, a touch of sweetness from a golden, honeyed mimosa. It's a little bit naughty and I like how it doesn't take itself so seriously, unlike Malle's other aldehydic floral, Superstitious. Perfectly paired with a slinky silk dress and fur stole, a sparkling cocktail, and a knowing smile.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Today is Comme Des Garcons Play Red. It's very sweet but not in a sicking way. Very light as well. I wish it was an EdP, but it is an EdT.

 Notes: 
Red Mandarin, Pink Peppercorn, Safraleine, Red Cherry Accord, Geranium, Cinnamon, Osmanthus, Myrrh, Balsam of Tolu.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I recently went and organized my perfume vanity table. It was kinda a dusty unloved mess...Now it is beautiful. I had a lot of perfume that I bought...and it just sat there. Years ago. So a lot of them are just decoration now. But as I was cleaning them I saw a bottle that was actually under half full!! And it hadn't turned yet. So today I am wearing Purr by Katy Perry.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Wearing L'Artisan P's Premier Figuier today - I love its earthy, verdant opening paired with the gentle sweetness of fig that's both fresh and milky.

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Mmm this sounds dreamy!

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Today I'm wearing 'What Would Love Do' by Lush (not the solid).  Out of the Lush perfumes, this is the only other one I really enjoy besides the Karma Solid.  Lust is nice, but too floral for my taste.  I actually like this one in it's regular perfume form.  It starts off very citrusy, tangerine and lemon combined, with a little spice, maybe cinnamon-like spice.  Then the lavender starts coming through in about 10 minutes time.  When it fully dries down, I smell anise (licorice smell) and what your skin smells like after you use bar soap.  The citrus is no longer present during this stage.   My favorite part of this is the opening.

I'm wearing ysl parisienne! definitely not my favorite scent, but I've had it for 3 years and I'm trying to use it up before it goes off!

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

This wet, grey day calls for a little Bois D'Orage from Malle, a very earthy, green scent. It's like Angeliques but with a fantastic slug of galbanum and patchouli.

I decided on MMM... by Juliette has a Gun this morning! It has an almost cloying candied berry smell to start and dries down to a warm, sultry, slightly woodsy one. The best part is I could actually pick up on the scent all day- I hate when I can't tell if my fragrance has disappeared or not!

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

I put on Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black this morning.  I like how it smells initially, but I was curious to see how it dried down.  Just went to sniff my wrist, and I couldn't smell a thing, and it's not even 10:00 AM yet!  So I'm not exactly thrilled, but it's a roller ball, which means (1) I normally don't get as lasting of a scent from a roller ball as I do from an atomizer, so maybe it's a knock against the container more than the perfume itself, and (2) It fit in my purse, so I was able to reapply.  I tried to apply just a teeny bit more, so maybe this time it'll dry down into something that smells good?  Fingers crossed!

 

From its description page: With the wind in your hair and an open road ahead, capture the feeling of freedom with Nirvana Black. A bold, addictive blend of violet, sensual sandalwood, and rich vanilla strike the match on finding the perfect balance between masculine and feminine. Nirvana Black is a bold eau de parfum that inspires independence. 

Re: What are you wearing, Fragrance edition!

Diptyque Tam Dao EDP sample. Creamy woods on cedar, light white floral, quite unisex and non offensive I like it. The opening top note is something super farmiliar on the tip of my tongue but I cant remember what it is and I’m going insane!!
