    Default Sunday 18 June 2006 - SotDD 90s!

    Since the 80s theme keeps coming up all over Basenotes and the female board has the Sot(Decade)Day on Sunday, May 21st, 2006 for 1980s fragrances, should we make this the SotDD over on the men's board as well? Does anyone want to second the notion? I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun!


    Update: Next SotDD info updated!!

    Good idea. Could create some much needed dynamics.

    I'll Play!

    I just checked and there are 9 fragrances in my wardrobe from the 1980s. Several of them are on my list of favorites so this is going to be a hard choice. Maybe I'll wear them all.

    Well, the Ladies' board has been doing it for awhile. They are up to the 80s right now. So I guess it's best to keep pace with them, 80s, 90s, 00s.


    And 1850? We're Not playing Scent of the Century yet.

    I'll be joining the 80s with you guys too. The women's board has this sticky up top so I'm sure we can do so as well. I'm sure we can raise an 80s style stink up in force our selves too, come the day.

    I might pull a Renato from the old days--wear three scents in the course of one day.

    Time for some Alain Delon maybe, maybe some Ho Hang Club, maybe some...heck, all options to think about later. But for me there will at least be a morning and an evening scent.

    And DustB - 3 scents in one day!? doesn't that defy the point of SotD? It is a SotDD though, looks like it's going to be crazy!!

    I guess it does defy the point of the sotd, but think of the narrative potential! Why have just one car crash in the chase scene of your movie when you can have three? I admit that when Renato was posting his three scents worn during the day I shook my head at my computer screen. But then he made a thread asking if other members thought that was too much change during the day. I might not remember correctly though. In the end Renato (we think) came back to a single scent during most days. Perhaps that's only because it's easier to air out a jumper that way though. It was a long time ago, but I like using the idiom: "I'm going to pull a Renato" to mean wear three scents in the course of a day.

    I only sleep 4 or 5 hours a day - I figure life's too short to sleep through 33 to 40% of it - consequently I have really long days.
    I think I'm showing admirable restraint in sticking to only two or three scents a day. The one I list on SOTD is the one I put on for work on week days, or the evenings on weekends. It's my LSOTD - Longest SOTD.

    One doesn't wear the same clothes 24 hours a day, nor eat exactly the same food 24 hours a day, or stick to one channel on TV for 24 hours a day - why on earth would people assume they should stick to only one scent per day? Some misguided sense of puritanical frugality perhaps? Or just miserliness?

    Even more amazing to me is that some people appear to only put on two - that's right TWO - miserable sprays of their scent for the entire day!
    I can't fathom it.

    Sometimes - maybe because I'm in a hurry, or I've been derelict and haven't thought about it - I have been known to wear just one scent for the entire day.

    I even go through 1 or 2 days a year - usually when I'm ill - that I don't wear any scent for the entire day.

    Yesterday it was Goutal's Eau de Gentleman before work, followed by Zipped Sport by the Samba people, followed by Nautica's Latitude Longitude when I got home.

    I want to thank everyone for participating. It sure made for an interesting Sotd thread and I loved putting on my Alain Delon and thinking of the world portrayed in early 80s movies.

    Thansks especially to ChrisW who brought the idea to the Men's board and so rightly urged it forward.

    We'll make a new thread about 90s decade day and I'll sticky it.

    Thanks again, everyone, and ChrisW.
