I am wearing Divine's L'Ame Soeur and very proud of the NY Legislature!
An ancillary question would be which fruity floral caused the genre to explode in popularity? I nominate J'Adore.
Call me a cynic, but it is interesting how we all would like to believe that the gorgeous and glamorous wore transcendent fragrances. I suspect that given their (and not their publicists') choices,...
I was alive and kicking in 1969, and the fragrance really does evoke the late sixties for me. Patch and fruit and heat. I have always loved patchouli in the summer. It...
L'Inspiratrice by Divine. Today is the last day of my vacation, still recovering from jet lag. There are consequences to popping, bright-eyed, out of bed at 3 AM!
Larimar: Vol de Nuit, indeed!
I got the Nirmala edp, accompanied by body milk. Only one formulation was available.
The Patchouli Intense is deep, warm, with a bit of chocolate, and most like Krigler's Lovely...
When one travels with a spouse who not only dislikes fragrance, but also may get headaches from being inside a shop, one picks and chooses one's excursions carefully. Also, really, I do love...
I am tired, jetlagged, and back from France. Today I am wearing Vol de Nuit parfum, in the gorgeous bottle, a precious acquisition. I will post a thread about my perfume adventures later.
Bon voyage, Baldufita. Spain is perfect!
I am leaving today on a vacation as well--to France!! I am excited beyond belief, as it has been four years...Perfume destinations. In Paris i will buy...
I had to work today, but it was good to get some uninterrupted work done. I wore Nuits de Noho: it's a fragrance that others love, I like, and after wearing it, don't need to wear again for a good...
Ah, tdem, great minds think alike. I woke up thinking that I hadn't worn my Ormande Jaynes for quite a while. As I am going to the botanical gardens today, what better than the moist earth of OJ...
I've gone hat shopping with my brother, who is quite the hat aficionado. He will easily drop $800 at a renowned Ny hat shop. But my husband would not like such an experience. He would take no...
Thank you, Cacio. A fedora it will be!
We are leaving for France in one week, and my husband needs a hat to cover his pate. I have vetoed both his baseball hat and his fraying straw beach hat. Please make some suggestions!
He is in...
Twolf: Funny, I was wondering and worrying about Taolady myself last week, hoping that perhaps you might have some word. Anyone been in touch?
I am wearing Quelques Fleurs Royale. It was an...
Le Parfum de Therese. It is strong, complex, feminine, and very dear to me.
Back from a weekend away, and after a lemon scrub from Soapology, I just needed to wear Diorella. I just love this rendition of Roudnitzka's signature. Sunny, but womanly leather.
Le Mimosa by Annick Goutal today.
Thank you for your birthday wishes. I have been checking in only sporadically, Twolf. I have a new and consuming position within my agency, and it is harder for me to check in to BN during my work...
I love the idea of sitting with my perfumes, opening flacons, dabbing, and remembering. Alone is always appealing, but imagine the lot of us together, helping each other up, passing the flacons,...
An interesting question. I am drawn to L'Infante, Divine, and 1804, HdP. But paradoxically, I love wearing patchoulis in the summer. Heat and patch: an intoxicating combo!
Mario: Have you tried Christopher Brosius's Smoky Tobacco? To my nose, it is the truest and most pure pipe tobacco scent, not the pipe as it is burning, but the pipe as it has just been filled.
So many celebrations! Congratulations to Tigs and tdem!
I am wearing Lady Vengeance.
FrouFrou: How lucky for someone to live in a room with such a painting on the wall!
I am wearing Chamade edp and thinking that I need parfum. It is that wonderful.
I'm wearing Histoire de Parfum's 1969. It was a very good year. I feel like I fell into a bed of late summer fruit and patchouli. Oh wait. i did that. In 1969.
Debbbora, I am with you. Lady Vengeance is funky fabulous, naughty but very, very womanly.
I am wearing Vol de Nuit extrait today.
Mitsouko edp today for me.
LOmbre Fauve, also by Parfumerie Generale, is a velvety patch.
Krigler's Lovely Patchouli is another personal favorite.
Happy birthday d!
I will wear Bois Farine today. Heading off to the Westminster Dog Show today!
Please consider Le Parfum de Therese. A classic composed by a maestro.
Guerlain Liu today for me.
I am wearing Ambre Narguile today. You know what the trouble of having so very many gorgeous fragrances is? Of course you do. I am sitting here thinking: I must wear AN every day. I must spray the...
Why is it that these polls are most often about women? How do those northern men smell?
I applied Juara Candlenut Body Creme this morning, and it stands alone!
I am wearing Neil Morris's Intimate Vanilla on this bitter cold morning.
Happy birthday, Joe!
I am wearing Musc Ravageur and will bake some sticky toffee pudding.
Lady Vengeance today.
What a fabulous bottle. We have all had the experience of reading notes and imagining something totally different from what we smell. I worry about how "transparency" will smell.
Poor Mimi. I presume that your ring finger is ringless.
I am wearing L'Ombre Fauve.
Congratulations, Sophi. I hope that you have some wonderful celebratory plans.
I am wearing Kenzo Jungle Elephant. I must be the last to jump on the KJE bandwagon, but I am really enjoying this...
Kiliwia: Good to hear that you are mending and that the worst is behind you.
I am wearing Quelques Fleurs Royale with matching body lotion, an impulse purchase that is agreeable and comforting.
I am wearing YSL Rive Gauche for our anniversary today. Roses in the morning, celebratory dinner this evening. Tomorrow I go to an anxiety-fraught doctor's appointment for test results. Ah well.
Musc Ravageur today for me.
Aha! I found a voice message that I simply could not decipher on my phone today. The only words I could make out were "travel size." Now I now: a heavily accented SA at Bergdorf's was passing...
Poor Kiliwia. It sounds so painful. Take care and get the painkillers that you deserve.
I wore Ambra Tibet today.
I am wearing L'Heure Bleu parfum today.
Debbbora: Lady Vengeance is my new love. Just got a bottle for Christmas.
It seems choosing one's SoTD may be reflective of one's approach to choice: I get up early and dress in the dark. I always set out my clothes and jewelry the night before, as decisions can be time...
Lessa: Oh my gosh, what a photo!
I am wearing Pretty Woman.
I woke feeling a perverse desire for tropical flowers! I am wearing AL's Frangipani over Juara's candlenut body balm.
Perfume shopping: what a delightful way to spend the last day of the year!
I am wearing Cuir Beluga, am at work, and with any luck will leave early. Not much of a celebration for me tonight, but...
I am emerging from nearly a week of too-sick-to-wear-scent. This afternoon I gingerly applied Coty's Wild Musk Oil, the uber-comfort fragrance.
My daughter gave me Lady Vengeance. Unfortunately, I have been the kind of sick when fragrances are unappealing, so I will save it for better days ahead. My husband gave me a silver bead...
With Mimi in Mitsouko. I love all my ambers and gourmands so; it can be hard to choose. but Mitsouko, with its confidence and complexity, was perfect for today.
Will look forward to trying. Do you think it will work for women?
Favorite New Releases:
Traversee au Bosphore
Ode de la Vanille
What Else Did I Fall in Love with This Year?
Lady Vengeance by Juliette Has a Gun
A strong word. Basically, those I...
Bois d'Armenie today to fight the unrelenting cold.
I am wearing Vamp by Ava Luxe.
For cuddly, I like:
Coty's Wild Musk
Ambre Russe for S n' S. Yes, it is also an oriental, but with so many delicious foody notes!
Yes! one of my favorite categories. I am wearing Ambre Russe today.
And Kilwia: you can get Ode de la Vanille at the Guerlain boutique at Bergdorf's. That is where I bought mine. Give them...
Let me echo the birthday wishes to Kumquat.
I am wearing Lady Vengeance.
Diorama, when I last sniffed it years ago, was a rich leather, sharing only the diorian heart with Diorella.
Please, whoever first spots it, please report back!
You are so very lucky. I wish that there were some elderly French gentlemen in my life.
Am in Le Parfum de Therese today. It is not normally an instinctively cold-weather fragrance for me, but it always offers me something more, an envelopment of beauty, hope.
In Havana Vanille today, my only official workday of the week. Tomorrow I join TDEM in pie baking.
I am wearing Kama, in perfume oil formulation, which stays nice and close to the skin--the perfect answer to the question, "What does one wear to a medical procedure during which one will be...
I love it. On me it is not too sweet, elegant, almond, smoke, but with a veil-like, rather than heavy quality to it. I actually went to the launch party at Bergdorfs, a blast.
With 30roses in Traversee au Bosphore, which I find comforting and wearable.
I am wearing the very delicious Pretty Woman today, a Sniffa score.
Rtamara: It is very important to embarrass your teenagers. It is even worse for them if they think that you look good. Such...
Yes, it is true: I love Lovely Patchouli. It seems to melt into the skin. I also am smitten with Lieber Gustav, both on its own and layered with LP.
Dior Addict. Funny, it is not yet winter-cold, but I can't seem to warm up. Perhaps Addict will do it.
I am trying the new Ineke, Gilded Lily and just loving it.
I am wearing Idole, Lubin, for Sniff n'Speak.
Thanks for the positive thoughts yesterday. The results remain uncertain, so I am propelled forward into the vortex of "further testing." This...
I really must try that Kenzo!!
I am wearing Idole by Lubin, layered over the Body Shop's Vanilla Spice body butter. Because it is a nonwork day, I sprayed to my heart's content. My heart is...
Am I the only person who hasn't scored big at TJ Maxx?
My favorite cheapies include Coty's Wild Musk, Ava Luxe, many Fragonard, and some Molinard.
Wow, Twolf, where did you score the Poesie?
For a medical procedure today, I had decide between a comforting fragrance and a beautiful fragrance. I chose beauty, which embodies possibility and...
Pretty Woman today.
I am beginning the day with Lady Vengeance, but will continue to play with my Sniffa samples later.
Tabu and Ambush: My great aunt Betty wore them to cover BO.
Bellodgia: When I was little, any package filled with goodies sent by my grandmother always smelled of Bellodgia. I keep a bottle on my...
Thank you everyone! It is so nice for once not to feel either compelled to spend big money or to settle for less. EDT all the way!
These are fragrances that I am drawn to wearing right now:
2, Shalimar Ode de la Vanille
3. Lovely Patchouli
4. Le Parfum de Therese
5, LOmbre Fauve
6. Havana Vanille
My very quirky choice is Aziyade, an oriental with cumin, the ultimate touch of raunch.
Happy birthday to Ubu!
I am wearing Lovely Patchouli, topped off with a bit of cognac, a combo favored by SMM.
Me too!! Isn't it fabulous?!
Thanks everyone. The edp is available on Molinard's website and is priced appropriately between the edt and the parfum. But most of you seem quite satisfied with the edt. La Petite, are you paying...
Thanks to SMM's suggestion at Sniffa, I bought, am wearing, and am loving Pretty Woman.
My daughter has fallen in love with Habanita! She needs to satisfy the desire and claim the treasure. Which formulation should she choose? Do parfum, edp, and edt differ in formulation (as with...
Shalimar Ode de la Vanille, one of my three purchases at Sniffapalooza yesterday.It is-sigh-wonderful.
Ageist assumptions and prejudice must be taken out of the picture. Really. Youth or age is no excuse for racism. My father is 82 now. When he was young, he was a civil rights worker who was...
I am in Havana Vanille today.
Fumerie Turque today.
It is always a mistake to compare parfum with edp. I myself have a big bottle of Pink Violet edp for small dollars.
All you Shalimar people, my goodness!
I am wearing Le Parfum de Therese.
I am so very intrigued by all of your descriptions. I am drawn to the very notes that you name, Mr. G. And JaneDaly, my mother too wore Shalimar (didn't they all?) and can't bring myself to love it...
I am wearing Chanel No. 5. Nothing like it! It adds a touch of elegance to my day as I bake clafoutis and work on my boeuf a la mode.
Please try Ava Luxe's brand new Pink Violet. It reminds me of Lipstick Rose for a fraction of a fraction of the price.
I have spent the day in Traversee au Bosphore and will switch to Bois d'Armenie for the theatre tonight.
Jacona: I have owned and loved China Rain for years!
I wore L'Heure Bleu today.
Le Parfum de Therese. Where there is such transcendent beauty, there must always be hope.
