Thanks for the new thread.

Wearing PP version of Pleasures this morning. So clean, to the point of being cold. Definitely not one for the warm, amber fans out there.

Hello, thanks for the new thread. I tested negative last night and this bout has been much more manageable. Still not much taste/smell, but SOTD Chanel 19.

The other day I put the grill on and it hadn’t clicked in properly. Gas spewing out until I realised. This is a dangerous business!

Here's hoping you're on the mend now @Judystilldreamsofhorses

Dh is working from home and recovering from his bug/food poisoning whatever it was

Ds1 is in the other room working so I'm in my bedroom not doing much at all 😬☺️

Thanks for the new thread Smile

I was wearing Flowerbomb today. I was expecting it to be very sweet, but it's just wonderfully floral. I love it.

Glad you're on the mend @Judystilldreamsofhorses. I managed to avoid getting covid from DS, much to my relief.

Happy shiny new spring thread everyone! Thanks @ChiswickFlo 😊

I'd forgotten it is a bank holiday this weekend, so that's a nice surprise. 😂 Have a relaxing time everyone. 🙂

Hoping you have seen the last of covid and will be back in fine fettle soon @Judystilldreamsofhorses

Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino body spray is keeping me fresh and fragrant today!! 🌸

I was thinking of going for Neroli Portofino today but instead am trying Francis Kurkdijan Aqua Vitae, which is a slightly odd mixture of orange and sandalwood. Should have gone for the neroli instead!

I've only just discovered Eternity Moment, and only then because it was offer at Superdrug on Mother's Day. Its my new favourite day perfume.
I really want something Orange / Neroli if anyone can recommend something? When my Mock Orange is in flower its my favourite spring smell.

Miller Harris Lumiere Doree is a lovely neroli, quite similar to Neroli Portofino but a little softer (and cheaper 🙂).

It's got a lovely orange flower/citrus top note :)

Hi everyone!

I smell like a mess because I’ve been trying on perfumes at Boots. Came away eventually with Chanel Chance.

also got one of these pods. Looks interesting. Does anyone have it and does it work? A bit hesitant to decant my expensive perfume into it in case it all leaks out.

Those pod things look useful, I've got a few things that don't get worn much because they are in dabbing bottles and I usually end up spilling half the bottle over myself.

SOTD is signature by mont blanc... as recommended by some fragrance youtubers. Does anyone else have this one and if so, what can I layer it with to lighten it up?

Have any of you popped into Zara recently. The perfumes they have there are amazing and they also have tiny tubes for those of us who can’t decide! 🤔

So I went a bit mad in the duty free on the ferry and tried quite a lot of fragrances, which was fun. Ended up buying Hermes Twilly Eau Ginger at a very good price, plus a set of Hermes minis.

Then I arrived at my parents' house to find all my lovely 4160 Tuesdays samples which I'd had delivered there as they don't ship to the EU. Oh my, I am going to have such fun trying them all out this week Grin
