London smells very....cold. I just get reminded of pine cones and lemons. But I like it.

It took about 3 weeks to get my order.

Aww I personally love the Lutens line but most do have a reputation for being very very sugary and foody / leaning towards being almost candy-esque in quality. Did you get to try Un Lys? Thats one of the nicer, less food oriented ones.

I got to try some Le Labo and I really enjoy the Rose 31, its a bit too masculine for me to wear but on a boy it would be just dreamy I think.

Ooh and if you like incense Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Silver Factory is quite nice - its not a true incense but the incense note is strong enough to resonate - its a unique scent. I've been wearing it the past couple of days and I quite like it.

I really feel this urge to find something with Gardenia in it that I like. When I was a freshman I wore Marc Jacobs' ubiquitous perfume but I've sort of outgrown that and I'd really like to find something else with a strong gardenia scent - its one of my favorite flowers and just the sort of thing I'd like to sniff right about now. I keep hearing people talk about Estee Lauder's Private Collection Tuberose and Gardenia but Estee Lauder scents almost never work for me - I have really weird chemistry and some perfumes that smell good on everyone just smell icky on me. Its the bain of my existence.

I always, always wear Prada Eau Tendre, it's just my scent - fits me perfectly, I love the way it lingers But today I tried the Prada Infusion d'Iris and I loooove it, I can't wait to buy it so I guess now I'll have two scents

I have now tested some samples and I really love with Daisy. At first I didn't care it much but somehow it starts growing me. Flowerbomb was disappointment.. ad was so gorgerous! Juice couture was not for me either..

I just received as gifts ” sheer veil” and “princess” by (Vera Wang) and “Love in Paris” by Nina Ricci, this one ..I don’t know, I’m not use to this type of perfumes ..what do you think about this one?, I was waiting for “Brit” (Burberry) but I didn’t receive it hahah so I guess I’ll have to buy it. Do you like Nina Ricci’s perfumes?

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Received Paul & Joe Blanc EdT, Nemat oils in Patchouli, Sandal Wood, and Egyptian Musk. And the Prada Coffret, minis in Prada, Prada Intense, and Prada Tendre. And some atomizers, that I think I will decant the Prada into; they're in really annoying splash bottles, with caps you have to pull off. Already slightly spilled them

I have recently discovered "L'instant magique" de Guerlain and I fell in love with it.

For Christmas I received Ralph Lauren's Romance. I had been gushing too much about my favorite Russian, Valentina I guess. I was slightly disappointed, in any case...the perfume gives me a headache.

but of course, I will never tire of my favorite, Chanel No. 5:p
