    Default 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!

    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.

    "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."

    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

    Was just thinking of this frag because - after waiting impatiently for the samples, (which came two weeks ago - but I got caught up in Guerlains and other things) - I am beginning Five Days of Amouage with Ciel Pour Femme.

    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.

    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.

    I have to agree with you Sestra. Parfum Sacre is in my top ten all-time favorites. It is indeed magnificent! This will always be in my collection!

    Cool Re: SotD Monday 19 March

    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...

    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.
