    Default SotD Wednesday 20 June

    Wearing Ava-Luxe's Gardenia Musk for this sunny and heaty Wednesday.

    Everyone, this is probably our last SotD post before BN re-opens again on the 1st July. I hope the transition will go smoothly and I will try to manage or make prevention of the withdrawal syndrome by putting my focal point onto buying or testing more perfume.

    Most puzzling. We are still 'alive'. Not quite sure about the 'kicking' however.

    Thanks to G's great suggestion on the 'Guess....' thread I will be here for the final countdown in

    Je Reviens


    CoCo dear, I think you need to mail your Godmother
    Testing is okay but buying even more scents? I can smell the fear of your credit cards.

    See you all in ten days and....behave. Well, sort of......Just like I will.....

    Hey enjoy, Coconut! That's been one of my staples this month. Never fails to put me in a good mood.

    Last day in June to post? That is sooooo sad ... but hopefully the NEW & IMPROVED is even better!!

    I just received 5 darling little miniatures in this morning's mail:

    Dalimix Gold
    Margaretha Ley
    ST Dupont Pour Femme
    Empreinte
    ST Dupont Signature

    BUT.... I won't put any of them on until later perhaps, because I'm going to the mall, and Myers fragrance counter is calling me for a SPRITZ-ATHON!! :bounce:

    Everybody have a lovely rest of your June 20th, and also the rest of your month of JUNE!!! See you all in JULY!!!!:wave:

    SO happy we're still online and there is still time for another SotD: Carthusia Via Camerelle again after her yesterday's evening refreshing effect. Alas, her longevity is weak so I have the bottle with me for re-applying.

    What a nice surprise! Thought we'd be blacked out by now!

    A sample of Un Lys for me (grassy ass Shy Cat!!) - starts out on a shrill note but is settling nicely into a creamy Casablanca/Muguet drydown!

    *checks ass for grass stains. changes skirt*

    Thanks Taolady, for keeping me looking like a lady!

    I'm in the last of my sample of Isabey's Gardenia today. I'll need some huge peice of good news to celebrate, or some minor tragedy to get over, before I lay out for this one. It's better, lighter, more delicate, fresher than Pur Desir de Gardenia. But not that much better. And I don't like the new bottle. It's too gaudy.

    I'll miss you guys! I am not buying anything else, but have a downtime resolution to work through my samples and organize as I go. See you all in July--I predict the 10th.

    Love the idea of "While we we were out" thread to catch us up once we're back in action.
    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

    Something by Estee Lauder (no idea which one, just yanked it out of a selection of samples). It's nice though.

    Wow, we are still here? Tested Tocade through the night. I had a mini that may or may not be perfume, but I was testing a new (and very inexpensive) edt. Even in that concentration, it's got legs. And was doing a most interesting skank dance when I woke up in the middle of the night.
