Thread: SotD Monday 19 March
Rosine's Rose d'Amour for me today to get this week started and to bring some springtime feel to this grey, sloshy Monday.
Have a great day, everyone!

Angelique Encens on one arm and Passage d'Enfer on the other.
Can't make my mind up yet, will it be heaven or hell

Mazzolari Vetiver over here and me loves it :-D
Poison for this miserable English day.
On this grey Monday, I am wearing Guerlain Métallica again thanks to a lovely BN fairy
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
Good day to everyone.
I'm all aglow in Caron's Perfum Sacre. It is warm, generous, and beautifully balanced. A deeply lovely fragrance. I will try to live up to it throughout the day, and with such a companion I feel better for it already.

Another grey monday here!

Wishlist is pointless.
Warm and very windy here. Carthusia Aria di Capri for the day.
Ava Luxe Viva body lotion with her Vamp edp.
"Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. 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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
Kingdom for me today. Grey and windy here, too.
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
I'm sitting here smiling all over my face probably looking stoned, due to a very generous Lady in Black who sent me a lovely package full of generous samples.
The narcotic responsable for the state I'm in is named Chergui.
People...I think I'm in love! But I have to try all the samples she sent me before I marry Chergui; shall try one new each day this week.
But so far this is my favorite I think. I was stunned by the beauty of Un Lys and Le FldO also; but they did'nt produce the same effect on me as Chergui.
Can't wait to try the other samples!
Something in the air today... Had trouble making up my mind, was very nearly scent twins with kanutta (isn't Chergui a delight? Enjoy!!) but settled on Etro's Etra instead. **sounds of brain spinning in head and verging on imploding due to indecision** Wondering whether it might be too warm for this, maybe I should change into Chergui after all...
Sigh. We're at that frustrating point in the season here in New England... It's currently sunny and warm, but the whole atmosphere feels pale and washed out... Yesterday was cold with scudding clouds and occasional snowflakes, occasional sun; and the day before we were digging out from nearly a foot of heavy snow and freezing rain dumped on the whole region. Am considering wearing Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab's Winter of Our Discontent as my SoTE, stricly for the name (although it's also *quite* a nice frag).
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Pretty. Opens on gardenia and violets and maybe jasmine, some fruit in there somewhere, peach probably and a quiet sandalwood amber base that is just slightly powdery. Not quite right for this atypically cold day. I thought "Sort of a toned-down Quelques Fleurs!!" :bounce: Or a slightly jazzed-up MoonBreath (Ayala) which I actually would prefer because it relies more on jasmine.
Pretty. But I wouldn't shell out those many clams even if I was a rock star or an Arabian Princess.

Wearing Une Fleur de Chanel!
Reached for the rectangular bottle, and am wearing the lilac coloured juice of Prada Tendre. Soft, comforting, with a bit of floral peeking out.
I'm simplifying my life. For Sale Thread (some niche, some designer):
Montale Aoud Rose Petals. Wow, what a rose--thorns and all. It just hooks itself into your memory. Big, big roses. This one and Black Aoud are similar, with the Black being unisex, more orange and spice with the rose, and the Rose Petals being more floral and leather.
Another rose wearer here...Bulgari Rose Essentielle for me today!
wearing chanel's coromandel today. love it. very heavy on the patchouli, but beautiful and smooth.

Very chilly, grey and windy here today so needed some warmth. BAL A VERSAILLES for me!

I'm very cold here, too, but I'm getting all the warmth I need from the beautifully developed Parfum Sacree. The drydown is absolutely luscious and still going strong after seven hours. What a maginificent perfume.
It's hot here, but Prada anyway.:wave:
Carthusia Io and JM Orange Blossom. (Better during really hot weather than today's moderate spring conditions.)
Monarch butterflies require milkweed to prevent extinction
SotD and SotE: Mitsouko.
Faves right now: Chanel No 19, Stella Rose Absolute, L´Heure Bleu, Elixir de Merveilles, Samsara.
I left my house wearing no scent, and spritzed a couple at Neiman Marcus. Eau de Merveilles on one arm, and Jaipur Saphir on the other. One smells like sweet powder & the other the beach. I live in Florida, who wants to smell like the beach, when you live not that far from it? Honestly, I tested alot of fragrances, old & new, and didn't find anything that excited me. Oh well, I'll just stick to the few I like...
Sève Exquise by Gobin Daudé
Le De Givenchy
Love that linden blossom on Tovah's new avatar! Came from work, still windy and muggy here, wearing Paco Rabanne Calandre.
Chose D&G Feminine for today but wasn't comfortable as its coolness made me feel even colder on such a bitter day. Tonight I am enveloped in three rose scents: Acqua di Parma; Rosa Flamenca and an itty bit of Lipstick Rose.
What is it with the longing for rose scents at the moment? Perhaps we are eager for the scent of real flowers in the garden on a calm, tranquil day.
I tried on Ava Luxe Milk today, and then CSP Matin Calan on the other arm. I'm leaning toward Milk at the moment, because it's oily and very lasting. I smell very cozy, and quite fat.
Givenchy Very Irresistible
