    Default Sotd 31st October 06 - Halloween!

    This is sweet! First time I started one of these. I jumped the gun because it isnt quite 10/31 yet but who gives a damn! HA!

    Today I believe I will be wearing a scent that is quite fitting to this date. Black Cashmere by Donna Karan. Very dark and spooky, longlasting, and sillage-riffic!!

    Do you think in a basenote's halloween we could dress up in costumes and trade bottles? Just a thought..

    Ha. I'll be wearing my newly aquired Tomorrow by Avon. It's very nice...but kinda disappointing. It smelled better on the strip in the Avon magazine. I mean, it still smells GREAT...but it's because it's basically a clone of Lolita Lempicka au masculin which I love. But from what I got on the strip it had a very different drydown (I had rubbed my wrist on the strip). Oh well, it was less than $16 shipped, and it came w/ a free wallet & a bunch of free Avon samples. Cant ask for much more than that.

    "...The history of perfumery before this subdivision of niche was manufactured, both literally and imaginatively, is a long one, with thousands upon thousands of fragrances. The true fragrance lover takes each fragrance one at a time, and examines it preferably outside of the imaginatively manufactured categories and, in doing so, builds up a steady, informed basis for seasoned comparative judgments based on the sampling and information gathered from such sampling. This is why any one on the board who ever has anything particular interesting to say about fragrances as fragrances rather than as categorical constructs always has an abiding interest and passion for all kinds of fragrances and not just a narrow niche of fragrances. Conversely, the "niche whores," the more and more narrow their interests become, the more and more they mimic the ad copy of the very companies they worship. I know whose posts I like to read..."

    “Perfume is decidedly not about two things: it isn’t about memory and it isn’t about sex. Perfume is about beauty and intellect,” .......... “A perfume is a message in a bottle—not a smell—and the message is written by the perfumer and read by the person who smells it.”

    Idole by Lubin

    The beginning is very nice, after that it transforms into one dimensional and synthetic scent, similar to drydown of several not so well made designer fragrances. I'm thinking it might be my skin chemistry, since this is so very highly rated here.
