    Default SotD Sunday, 15 May 2011

    Good morning on this rainy and cool Sunday (hmpf!)
    I could still smell the Tabac Blond faintly lingering on my wrists, so I reached for something that would not collide with it... so, I'm in Mitsouko EdP and still getting my leathery illusion for my crave. I also dabbed some Diaghilev - Roja Dove somewhere on my arm. I think the problem I have here is: Yes, it strongly resembles Mitsouko (new) to me, the extrait most, but I prefer it slightly more plush and would reach for the extrait with also a more interesting drydown with the peach interwined. The Mitsouko EdP on the other hand has more edges and a leathery vibe to add interest. So, I'd also prefer this over Diaghilev.

    I seem to be drawn to TDC Osmanthus as I head for bed, so that will be my SotD when I get up. Take care, all.

    Happy birthday to musse. I miss you very much, I know Ms.Q does too.

    Slept with ELdO Fat Electrician, continuing the theme -- like Jon, in grandiose -- Guerlain Vetiver pour Elle.

    LeGrand, I watched 4 of the Eurovision finalists and I would have voted for Sweden, honestly. Have not watched Ukraine yet, but judging from your post I am not missing much. Seems like some songs in general, not just the finalists, are targeted for a very narrow audience -- those jumping techno Jacks in matching red suits or Russian connotations from several countries -- where is the popular appeal of pop culture that makes millions of people throughout the whole continent a-humming? On the other hand, they played an old favorite here on the radio in the AM -- Billy Joel Moving Out (Anthony works in a grocery store/ Saving his money for some day) -- that's popular appeal, spunk and hum-a-day factor, I am teling you!

    Have a nice Sunday.

    Since Eastern Europe entered the Eurovision, plastic pop and techno'ish
    songs have been the norm. That kind of music is very popular over there,
    and since they sit on a heavy load of votes, and usually only vote for other
    Eastern countries, we have to oblidge, and make music for their taste, if we
    want to have any chance of getting points from them. It's a shame, though.
    The winner song from Azerbaijan is straight up boooring, I'm very surprised
    that it won. Also, with all do respect, Azerbaijan isn't exactly known for its
    huge national budget = the show is gonna be really toned down next year.
    Oh well ...

    I know, I haven't seen anyone wear it either. It's really nice, I'd love a bottle, but it's a little expensive. Maybe someday.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Petit Guerlain EdT. Just as the Guerlains in general are not gender-specific, Petit Guerlain is really not categorical in terms of childishness either. If anything, it smells like innocence, a powder-free Après L'Ondée, or a sort of perfume version of The Little Prince.

    I don't watch the Eurovision songfestival anymore. It used to be about songs and music and quality but now it's a farce. And the music is só bad! Not pop-music, but ''song festival music''.
    www.aafke-art.com

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”
    ― Dwight D. Eisenhower

    SotE is Borneo 1834 - Serge Lutens. This has steadily climbed up the ladder... I originally bought this blind at a very good price and did not really enjoy it too much, but only admired it for being a very unique and artistically appealing fragrance. Things have changed to the better and I upgraded it recently to a **** fragrance inmy wardrobe. Still, it amazes me that after two hours there is only a faint (delicious) smell left.
