SOTD is L'Artisan Parfumeur Bois Farine.
Wish you all a good start to the week.
Never been to NY but heard that type of heat there really stinks!
Sad and blues-y(long story) but wearing Love and Tears which ironically, I don't see as a sad perfume. Maybe I am not 'getting it' but don't see what is sad about it. I don't really smell sadness in perfumes..I can't think of many that I find 'sad'. Though, I haven't tried that one by Lutens I've been wanting to try..'from the depths I've cried' ah, I forget the name of it, starts with a 'P', you guys know. I haven't liked much of his stuff so far but still would like to try it, I guess.
Have a good one, guys:). Hugs to all.
Terry, I hope the week goes quickly for you - 105 must be pure misery.
The ongoing problems with our work air conditioning continue. Barely adequate for the office and largely inneffective anyway when things get extreme. Had numerous pointless visits from busybodies flaunting clipboards and attitudes. At least we have a drinks machine
Feeling awful, smelling elegant - Arquiste Aleksandr.
Eau de Guerlain today. So crisp and fresh in the warmth, with surprisingly good longevity (for an EdC).
Two and a half more days till I'm on holiday. I'm never one to wish the time away, but ...
Have a lovely start to the week, folks.
Hello, everyone -
Lightning post after a very difficult day yesterday, and more beastly weather expected on this coast, as TDEM points out. Jon, I hope your air conditioning kicks in, the attitudinal clipboard people are kicked out, and that you feel better soon!
SoTD is a tester from Parfum1: Maria Candida Gentile's Gershwin from her Classic Collection. Very classy, and great in this hot/humid weather, but I'm not sure it's sufficiently unique for the price. That said, it's early in the wearing...
Gershwin notes: Winter Lemon, Sicilian Lemon, Bitter Orange, Grapefruit, Black Pepper, Sycamore, Water Flowers, Cloves, Sandalwood, Incense.
Good morning everyone, and welcome back Mimi! It's so good to see you joining us again!
I hope y'all had a nice weekend! We went to a wedding at this ol' place, Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, Louisiana. Now the wedding was great and the house is beautiful, but the most impressive feature is of course the canopy of magnificent old live oaks, which actually pre-date the house by at least 120 years. Only half of them are pictured here, but there are 28 total, 14 on each side, and they are estimated to have been planted ca. 1690-1700. Like most of the old plantation houses around here, Oak Alley is right on the Mississippi, so the view from the house is rather spectacular, too. I wore Beige, by the way, which was absolutely perfect and it even won me two compliments, which is always a nice little extra.
I'm wearing Serge Lutens Bas de Soie for ballet this morning ...giving '32 a little break.
again thank you for all the suggestions for the tea parties......especially Teardrop (how right you were with the Salmon) and Twolf (you are a star!)
It all went well.......my fiancee did drinks as in Pimms, which everybody commented was so different and nice. Very interesting to see late last night the Pimms had not been opened at all......he had used a desert wine from Santorini!
Photos as promised to show the mistakes (please remember I don't cook with flour sugar or butter so this was a challenge for me!)
*warts and all*.....so you can see the icing was a challenge for me!
Big and minnie cupcakes
And as you would guess the gifts were all perfume......please notice the little tuxedo wrapping as every time I got stressed I wrapped another gift ....and I love wrapping up perfume for people! Have always loved origami....not sure my photo shows up the little tux on the presents!
Have a wonderful day all!
SOTD Lime, Basil and Mandarin..........always so disappointing how fleeting this is!
