Today is Judith Leyster Self Portrait, which is a very rich and clove-like carnation. I think this will be fab on very cold days.
I feel like I have been neglecting my carnation perfumes so maybe I need to wear one before the month is over....

Today was Mordred's Passion from Halloween Inferno 2013. Why? Not sure, though I have been re-reading a King Arthur trilogy (the Warlord Chronicles) by Bernard Cornwell.

Annemathematics on another forum mentioned Dark Festivus was one of her top 10 favorites. I pulled it out this morning (I have been distracted with ahem, a "few" other bottles) and holy moly, this is even aging better since I reviewed it last June. The galbanum is breaking my heart, it is so beautiful, and the overall effect with the musks is haunting and sensual. I don;t get the "dark" in the name. It seems more like a spirit of light in flight. If you see this hanging around on any sales board, snap it up.

Today is Lady and a Baby Unicorn, and I'm thinking its entirely unlike anything I've ever smelled or worn before. And the second thought is that its gorgeous!

I combined a drop of Bike with a drop of Lady and a Baby Unicorn. Sexy! Vanilla, vetiver, and lime go together well. Tomorrow I think I'll try Bike + Id.

Today I am feeling sweet and Rosy, so I grabbed Cygnus off my shelf to try. I wasn't sure of it in the bottle, but worn it becomes the most beautiful, soft, sweet, almost Turkish Delight sort of thing. And I was convinced that it would not last, and yet here I am, at the end of the day, and I still smell wonderful. And my boyfriend gave me a kiss and said "oooh, you smell nice", so win all around!

Forbidden Delight, from Victorian Romance: Valentines 2014. Kind of spicy/boozy. This one is really suiting my mood today somehow.

Ooh, that puts Montana on my wish list now!

I'm wearing Testosterone (my "Depeche Mode" scent) and it's such a brain-bender. Minty black leather and petrol. Yes, if you like the smell of gasoline at the pump (I do!) this is the perfect scent for you. You're breathing in fumes/I taste when we kiss

Zombie. Because the day called for... a marshmallow note?
Smoke and marshmallow, so good!
