Re: New Project - Long Tin Cup w Multi Color Tahitians

It is looking lovely!! Let PP string it for you- Hisano played with some different layouts before we hit the one I liked the best. I wanted the pearls at random intervals and I wanted colors mixed well- I just really liked that look. also- once it's laid out you can see how the colors work together ...

Re: Fragrance of the Day Thread

Continuing with my Valentine's Day week theme, today I am wearing Indie perfumer Ayala Moriel's " Roses et Chocolate". I have the roll on oil version of it. It is just as it sounds- rich, dark chocolate and a lovely full blown rose. Lasts quite long, but siliage is soft.

Re: Fragrance of the Day Thread

Well, I tried Dior Addict and Chanel No. 19 yesterday, really liked the former (reminded me of my college floriental days), hated the latter. Today I'm waiting for my new-to-me AK II and Fendi to arrive :clap: . When I get back to Boston, I'll have to head into Barneys and the like to check out Le ...

Re: Fragrance of the Day Thread

In my experience Le Labo perfumes unfortunately turn much faster than most. I am not sure why that is the case,perhaps mixing it right there in front of the customer and not in a lab. Not sure but I have many vintage fumes that are many decades old and they are more beautiful than ever. Le Labo rea...

Le Labo Vanille 44 today, I love this vanilla because it does;t make me smell like a cupcake! I was wearing that one yesterday!! I think it is my favorite vanilla; however, my bottle is going on 2 years and I think the scent has changed a bit. Have you noticed any difference in your bottle over time?

Hi Missy sorry to hear you're having so many troubles with your skin. I don't know if this would work for you or not, but have you tried any of the Dr. Alkaitis Organics products? I don't think the cleanser would work as it has olive oil and coconut oil in it, but the "Organic Soothing Gel"...
