    Default SOTD Saturday 26 May

    Have a wonderful day - all of you Basenoters in Chicago. I'm hyper-jealous! Take some pictures, sniff away, grab samples and report back with lots of stories...

    Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY Quarry!

    Happy birthday to Quarry!

    Temperature rises to 32 today and it is extremely muggy here. I was playing with Heure Exquise this morning but it was so hot that I have already showered twice and now wearing Carthusia IO Capri, my perfect fig and favourite summer scent.

    For a visit to my parents, Ava Luxe Gardenia Musk, with a little Tuberose dabbed on my wrists and behind my ears.

    Happy Birthday Quarry, and have a great day all your Chicago BNers (and you UK BNers going to Harvey Nicks...)

    Happy day to the birthday child, and hope the meeting is a success! I'm sure it will be a great memory for you.

    Tea for two it is today. My daughter said I smelled strange. Maybe I'll overspray with Un Jardin sur le Nil. Or maybe Habanita will be better with the smoky notes...?

    Expecting firends of my DH today, my neck has gone to pieces so he will take them out to dinner without me; I'm just going to say hello and try to be polite.

    Have a nice week-end all.

    Wearing D&G Sicily for second day. Another example of a frag I had dismissed based purely on spritzes from testers while shopping but now that I have my mini edp bottle + body products I am falling in love with this scent. It wears like a skin scent and in the drydown is all musk and sandalwood, reminding me of Zoe only deeper. Very comfortable to wear.

    P.S Happy Birthday to Quarry!

    What a day! Happy birthday Quarry! And hoping for some good pics from Chicago....

    started out with Himalaya, but I can feel a wild side coming on and not sure which frag will be summoned later on....

    have a great day, all...

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."

    Wearing Allure Sensuelle parfum today. Going to get a facial at the Guerlain boutique today -- my first facial ever, so I hope it will be good. Let's see if the estitician will notice that I am smelling of chanel rather than guerlain.

    Happy Birthday, my fellow Q! Let us know how the big day turned out!

    Wore SJP lovely for a plane ride to Dallas this morning. A little devil is sitting on my shoulder telling me that after I get my hair done on Monday I should go to Barney's and get Carnal Flower. He and the angel of paying off credit cards are slugging it out as we speak...

    Happy Birthday Quarry! I hope the day was smooth and delightful with the sniffathon. I'm testing more Bruno Acampora oils today. They take more time to develop than I'm used to, being oils, and none so astounding as the Jasmin, but all good.
    Please, spritz responsibly.

    Sampling Guerlain Bois d'Armenie this evening. It's a very light musk on me, very similiar to the Angelique Noir.

    happy birthday, Quarry!! hope you have a great day.

    I decided to sample another of my..well..samples! LOL Carnation by Mona Di Orio. Not really sure about this one...the drydown is nice, but the rest of it doesn't sit right on my skin. It smells funny! Oh well, I'm going to try it again at some point and see how it goes
