Picked up a bottle of Fireflies during Retour and am so glad I did! Citrus notes tend to make me hesitate; I'm not sure why though as they tend to work fine for me. This is creamy citrus, yes, a bit like a creamsicle. The heat and humidity have been amping up here lately and this was great last night and today. I might even wear it again tomorrow! Or at least in my scent locket again.
(FTR: It's very very very very rare for me to wear the same perfume two days in a row.)

Nuut the Sky Godess. Can someone tell why I am not wearing this every day? I honestly don't know what I am smelling the first hour. Fabienne has it described as "loam". I know loam as soil, but this is more green, a gorgeous, dreamy scent; unusual. After an hour, it fades to Possets classic silver. This is why we have bottles. To reapply with abandon.

Doped Pumpkin. I'd actually forgotten all about it because there were new previously untried Retour bottles to distract me, but I found it while looking for something to wear this evening. First cannabis fragrance I've ever loved, and may well be the only one.

Was thinking about Fall and thought I'd go with a fav from a previous fall collection -- Dies Irae from Haunting Music. Niiiice! Good throw on this one too. Wow. Galbanum opening, all those great musks... *swoon*

Revisiting scents from Octobers past. Today is Cambienne: Per Fume. Sweet, smokey goodness, very subtle pumpkin, lovely spices & resins. A co-worker who just came by said it smells good in here. I know it's me :pumpha:

Oh, goodness, I just was enjoying Dies Irae the other day. I love the Galbanum!

I am wearing Les Fleurs du Mal from a past Halloween collection:

Myrrh rose is leaning up against a bit of ripe apricot. There is a wiff of Possets jasmine to it all and a small amount of black petunia fighting the onrushing North wind. A bit of blue musk makes this all deeper, and a drop of galbanum.

From the imp it's rose and sweet apricots. On me, I get a bit of jasmine as well. The floral notes don't overpower the blend and it's not heavy at all. Usually I don't like fruity but this one it's really good!
It lasts more than 3-4 hours on me.

Lol, I think we need a "What are you wearing from last year's collection at this time?" thread or something. Something better worded, for sure.

Yesterday was Damned if You Do (because ain't it the truth?) which I picked up at Retour. Nice & foody! Surprised I'm the only one who has reviewed it!
Today was Night on Bald Mountain from last year. A really classy chypre.
Tomorrow is likely to be Hophead cuz Mondays make me want coffee. Though I've kind of got my eye on Libby from OAR too....
