Ah, so you did get the Spanish Dancer, Marisaviola! I am glad you like it! I won't be getting my Yule Retours until at least mid-January. (I just hope they make it!) Last night I was wearing Clara's Party and could happily slather it. I only have about a half decant left in the bottle. This is such a comforting scent to me.

Yes, it's gorgeous! I've been hearing so much about Clara's Party I ordered a small decant through Angi. I am looking forward to trying it so I can decide whether to get a bottle or not. I wondered, does anyone know the end date for the Yule Retour?

I hope your bottles arrive safely, Minh! :hrt::

I'm so glad you're enjoying Spanish Dance, marisaviola! I'm glad you're giving Clara's Party a try too. That is one of my most reached-for possets in winter.

Lately I've mostly been rotating Pachelbel's Canon, Mona Lisa, and Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy--so different from each other and all so lovely. Today I'm getting reacquainted with Sahelian Kingdom, which I don't wear often because it's kind of subtle and I am not usually about subtlety. :D It's really lovely, though, and comforting. It would be heavenly mixed with some unscented lotion to put on my hands at bedtime--I might have to do that.

The cold weather in Atlanta (with actual, for-real snow!) made me get out some cold-weather favorites from the permanents: Chocolate Incense and The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba. So glad I have these.

We plan to keep the Yule Retour up until mid January!

Yes, thank you, Tom! And thank you, Marisaviola for your post office wishes! Today I am wearing 1812 Overture which is such a classic. I am not even a big fan of leather and I love it!

Funny, I just ordered Pachelbel's and Spanish Dancer because they are ones that keep calling me partly due to your reviews lol. I suspect I'm going to adore them.

(Also finally grabbed Alabama--so incredibly stoked about that one. Will have to do a review as soon as I get it.)
If you can't be a success, be a spectacular failure!

Love Spanish Dance! Not sure about Pachelbel's Canon, I may or may not have a decant?
The freaken fragrance ban at work is frustrating the F*ck out of me.
Wore Cambienne: Burning Snow when I went out for drinks tonight. It was a hit, of course. Like I've said, this is Cambienne time of year for me and I love Burning Snow when I'm cold... which is basically always.

Oh, I love the Cambiennes at this time of the year, too! For me, it is Dark Festus. They only get better with age.

I haven't actually tried Spanish DanceR (though it sounds intriguing), so you'll have to tell us what it's like! The one I'm so fond of is Spanish Dance from the Nutcracker.

Today I'm back to the gorgeous Clara's Party. I can never stay away from it for long.
