I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you lovely folk how much I appreciate your company. Posting here is a regular, enjoyable part of my day and it's thanks to all of you.
Wish you all a happy Friday.
Thanks Terry Same here
Lemming Terry and Jon's sentiments, even though I've been absent the last few days. (to catch up, one day without scent, one day Imaginary Authors L'orchidee Terrible, one day Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille, and Roja Dove Risque yesterday)
For Friday it's Montale Greyland from a sample. Ooooooo, I like this one! Lots of dry woods and a few spices, and a very nice note of good quality paper (likely from the various dry woods!). It's lovely, but it'll take a few more wearings and some compare/contrasts before I decide if I need to shell out the big bucks for a bottle.
Greyland notes include: Cedar, sandalwood, vetiver, guaiac wood, ginger, pepper, leather, musk and rose.
ComDiva, that Montale does sound great.
Yes, with everyone on the appreciation of the SOTD crowd. Roberto, you are such a romantic. Please carry on.
I'm footering around today looking for something for the synch. Your most abstract, artificial scent There is plenty to choose from. I started off with A Lab on Fire What we do in Paris is Secret. I'm not sure what I thought it would be but to my surprise it's a heliotrope fragrance at heart. Now, what next.....
I'm in Bel Respiro for tennis this morning. Y'all have a great day!
Hi tdem - thanks for sayin' so, as I feel the same way! And I've always enjoyed your company, too.
Re. our macarons, I think they were a success! Mostly. Hehe, they aren't exactly easy shades, that's for sure. It's a very straight-forward recipe with just a few ingredients, but some special techniques are required, and you need to know what you're doing - there's really no "winging it" with these. But the results, even when not perfect, are absolutely worth it ...I'm going to be practicing my macaron-makin' skills a lot in the foreseeable future, lol! Mom's were nicer-looking than mine because she's always very careful and precise, but I think mine were tastier with more innovative combinations. I did actually make a mouth-watering violet and raspberry Insolence macaron, but my favorites are honeysuckle-mango and pistachio-rose. I'd definitely make those again, but there are about a million other combos I want to try now ...yep, gonna take lots of practice.
