    Fooled by Grant, had to use Google to find my way here today.

    My SotD - and this is not an april-joke: Chanel No 19.
    Faves right now: Chanel No 19, Stella Rose Absolute, L´Heure Bleu, Elixir de Merveilles, Samsara.

    Seems I am too late to enjoy Grants joke. What a pity, I really love Britney Spears

    As if I ever would forget the first of April! The day I organised a huge party at the Rotterdam Zoo to celebrate my engagement.
    Thinking it was all one big joke (and so did the rest of the guests)

    No, 1 April is a day to be treated with much caution!

    I think Guet Apens is very, very appropriate for today

    Miss Dior EDT pour moi. I'm loving it too, this was my first 'grown up' fragrance that my big sister bought me for my 18th birthday, I've had it in one form or another in my collection ever since then.

    There was a slightly amusing April Fool on the radio today, they announced that the London Underground were installing deodorising archways as you enter the tube, armpits need to be lifted and automatically sprayed, to ensure freshness for all passengers. They even had a 'spokesman' talking about it. Quite funny, it had me fooled for a nano-second!! (how do I use the smiles here BTW?)

    Thanks Grant, thats was quite funny! Thankfully, I clicked on the link below and brought be back to this community.

    My dehumidifer played a BIG joke on me. The container which holds the water leaked and left a big pond for me to clean up.

    This morning I started with Marc Jacobs then switched to Annick Goutal's Folavril. Went to the shopping mall and found JPG's newly launched Fleur du Male, I immediately felt head over heels with the orange blossom component!!! I then spayed on some Clean Baby Girl before I came home.

    Thank you Margareta! Don't understand why my computer went right to the correct and usual board.
    Playing it's own April Fool's Day joke, it seems.

    And before I lose the sad remains of my reputation forever: I hereby solemly declare that I don't adore Britney. To be honest, I don't give a..... well......

    It seems the A-Team is as drowsy as I am. And very absentminded. Well.....even without scent!

    Scent of the warm sunny day: inexpilcably for me it was Apres L'Ondee. It is wonderful, but I have to use a lot of it to keep it anywhere near me after the first 10 minutes on my skin. Unfortunately it stings me and leaves a slight rash. Guerlain lovers might baulk at this, but I'd rather spray it on my sheets than on my skin. I must find a way to wear it better.

    Scent of the cold evening: Musc Ravageur for comfort.

    Sorry, Grant. I would've been fooled cuz I forgot what day it is.

    Brotha G: No scent for me either! A rare, rare occasion.
    I wiped off some surfaces with rubbing alcohol, large amounts of rubbing alcohol, and everything smelled bitter for the rest of the day. My mouth tasted bitter, too.

    I think the fumes must have caused it.
    I will not do that again under any circumstances.
