The really good SAs, like Mohammed at Nordstrom (shameless plug, there – he really IS phenomenal) wince every time I stalk into the perfume section "oh, dear. Here she comes – again. And I got nuthin'......until last Friday. Mohammed met me at the counter with this wicked glint in his eye...

There's just one rule I try to live by – if you're going to give your perfume a name that's a little edge, then make what's inside edgy or at least interesting. The Pink room's Darkly Audacious is a perfectly fine florgourchouli with notes of lemon, bergamot, and rosewood; heart notes of...

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...

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,...

Happy New Year, dear Posse folks! Hope 2012 is off to a great start for you. As for me, I have made my usual resolutions: to get more exercise/lose weight; be neater and more organized; and try to enjoy the scents I already have more, instead of rushing to try the latest thing. I've gotten...

" 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...
