So no perfume review for this week. I will review the gel: very effective in delivering heat with a "nice clean" smell that's an eye-watering eucalyptus. But as I mentioned, I can stand upright and use the clutch on the car without whimpering. I hope by the weekend to be back in the...

By this, I do not mean "perfume etiquette" – e.g., whether it's polite to offgas Dior Poison at the opera, although frankly I find people slowly unwrapping cough drops and hard candies far more annoying in that situation (crinkle crinkle criiinklle). No, I'm talking about the myriad ways...

The repeating perfume bottle problem should be fixed. I uploaded it, it wouldn't show up in Firefox, so I thought I screwed it up. Had no idea another browser was displaying it. IE should be showing the correct format now, it didn't like flexible page width. Who knew?!?!? Chrome seems to be...

Patty's still swanning around Costa Rica, so today Musette and March are doing a joint "she said/she said" post about D'Orsay Etiquette Bleue. One of the conundrums in perfumista-ville is whether a classic "cologne" which might last 92 seconds on the skin (hey, it's designed that way) is...

Everyone ready? I'm sending perfumed hugs out to all of you lovely Posse peeps. In lieu of a perfume-centric post, I'm going with something (nearly) equally dear to my heart — lipstick. I don't wear much makeup these day, except for special occasions, but I do love a great lipstick,...

" descended over me, along with the gobsmacking beauty of the perfume, of course. The ever-patient Lydia. le sigh. How she keeps from just slapping me is a mystery. This Is Perfume. Old School Perfume. Nicknamed 'The Plum" by Roudnistka's circle of perfume pros, it is comprised of many...

It's much more exciting to be planning what flowers are going in this year and where and how to get some more amazing smells going on in my yard. I've yapped on and on about my daphne forever and think I finally have a place to put another one. They need full, unadulterated sunlight,...

New Year's Eve morning – decided to pay some lingering parking tickets. Denver city and County raises money by ticketing side streets 1x a month because we forget to move vehicles for street sweeping. I thought there were two, one on each of the boys' vehicles. Logged in citation number,...

Perfume Posse and I are not responsible or liable. Patty wrote this in a post this week, I'm pasting it here: "The best rule I have, make sure the entire swap is complete and both parties say they are happy before you open and start using. If you swap for a fragrance and for some reason the...

I keep thinking I don't like it that much as a perfume, but I do. It's got a little Worth Courtesan vibe going on, some skank under that sweet exterior. It's growing on me a lot, though that could be my longing for a beach in the Osa Peninsula that is calling my name louder every damn day....
