    Default SotD Saturday 12 May

    Going to get my nails done this afternoon in this Indian inspired top.
    Spritzed some Opium Fleur De Shanghai by Yves Saint Laurent before I head out.

    Have a good weekend everyone!

    My head is still in a whirl, so what would be a better match than Folavril? :bounce:

    Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

    Off to London today to a seminar. Hoping to get to Harrods and Liberty in the morning for some perfume sampling.

    And I'm wearing Fendi's Asja. It's rather yummy.

    Just dropping in to wish you all a wonderful weekend.

    That performance on Jensen.....G, I am so glad that one was on tape. I fell asleep during the eight o'clock news How did I look?
    Updates please (mail, whatever).

    And....another day without scent. Skin calmed down for most part but I am not taking any risk.
    The men who are real fragrance gods in this world seem to be interested and are investigating what went wrong. Because it should not have happened.

    Changing to Shalimar bodylotion and L´Heure Bleu EdT at noon.

    This combo comes from me not having the bodylotion of L´Heure Bleu. But even if these two frags are different, this combo is working.

    Coral is one of my favorite NMs - curious to see how you like it!!

    Another Ava Luxe Free Style Layering day for me - started with Jivago's 7 Notes - (thanks for the tip ComDiva!!) ...listen to these yummy notes: Pear, mango, jasmine, orchid lotus over cinnamon and amber, sandalwood and musk. A well balanced medley - lightly fruited musk!!

    And then - AL's Forbidden Fruits - in which the cinnamon is on top! Together with pepper and cardamom - then fig and pomegranate over African woods, vetiver and frankincense and myrrh.

    I got the figgy pomegranate - slightly tart and musky right away. A great crescendo over the legato 7 Notes.

    Must scamper right over to the AL Layering thread before I have Moondeva on my tail!

    I am well armored to face the throng at the Flower Shop - all those folk who never realized that this year - unlike any other - Mother's Day is on the second Sunday in May!!

    What performance are you guys talking about? Eurovision song contest? Glad that your allergies are subsiding, Riannon.

    Wearing Tom Ford Black Orchid, still do not understand it completely. What I am saying is, it is a great fragrance but I doubt it was made with my skin in mind, not very smooth and with some odd elements sticking out. Will make a final verdict after today.

    Searching for my AL Midnight Violet, couldn't find it, so I am now wearing Espionage by Ayala
    something rather herbaceous about this. I'm liking it.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue.

    Ah yes it's the Eurovision tonight. We don't take it very seriously in the UK...Was quite funny last year with Lordi winning, though. Who'd a thunk it?

    Tabac Blond today...Liking this, but still considering whether I love it enough to spend £150 on the extrait. Hmm. *rubs chin*

    Citrus Dream for me today.

    Oops, changed my mind. I'm wearing Feminite du Bois and comparing it with Rousse, which is sweeter and softer. At least that's my first impression!

    Exploring greens today with Claire Nilang by Lalique. Really enjoying all the herbaceous notes with a little white floral in the background. A good find, love the bottle, too.

    Going to help out my neighbor at his greenhouse today, and it's hot, humid dirty work, so thought something fun like MIAMI GLOW would be in order.

    Iris Poudre - I found it a bit insignificant at first, it doesn't excactly shout at you; but now I aprreciate it. Though I'm not sure refined elegance is for me; I tend to overapply them when scents don't shout at me.

    Have been completely knocked out after much stress the last weeks, my neck can't take it any more. Haven't had the energy to write here either.

    So guess what...I leave for Nice tomorrow, a whole week. Got me an apartment with terrace seaview: not going to leave it at all.

    No - guess there will be some sniffing too; I've printed out Kewarts post from her visit in Nice. Have to give Habanita a try. If she shouts I'll definetly buy her.

    Alors; à bientõt mes amis

    Greetings, one and all! Kanutta, enjoy your wonderful vacation!

    I'm with you in stress fest mode; but my BN buddies and scents are a big help...

    Today it's Hermes Rouge EDT for me. A yummy, ambery floral. Nice for the warm-ish weather.
    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

    today I added Vamp to my Espionage. Then later, I went to Himalaya, even further, added some Voleurs de Roses, which I am now basking in deliriously....sort of like a little scent trail of the day. Nice.
