    Default SotD Wednesday 8 August

    Testing Lux by Mona di Orio, smells like a zesty lemon cough drop to me. There is no immediate attraction unfortunately, but it does have a fairly good staying power.

    Have a nice Wednesday everyone!

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."

    Today, I'll begin my day with Eau D'hadrien and end it with SL Fleurs D'Oranger in the evening.

    Have a great day!

    Just a short note to keep you posted about my GOOD NEWS!!!!

    How are you all today?

    I'm GREAT!!
    Doctor says my PET scan is all clear, but for a little scarring on my thyroid.
    However, the thyroid is working fine, so don't need meds for it.
    Blood work is all good too.
    Don't have to see him again for 9 months, and no more PET scans, unless something suspicious seems to warrant it.

    Happy dance!!!! Just over 2 years cancer free!!!
    Doctor says only 5% chance of any relapse & they consider you cured after 3 years.

    Suds the Cancer Survivor (all guns loaded & blazing!) & wearing an intense Cuir de Russie (Chanel) today!!!

    Congrats Sudsy.

    Wearing Zephy by Neil Morris (from my sista'...Comdiva) - this is the kind of fruity floral that I could get away wearing...Donna Karan eat your heart out: this is like Be Delicious on steroids. Strong blasts of honeysuckle are swimming all around me, as I go thorughout my day and then ever so often a very very subtle sandalwood note appears out-of-nowhere. Neat.

    My initial impression of LV Sandalo was, "Wow. It's a good coffee scent." That must have been the lavender mixing with some other notes to create a coffee-like accord, similar to a dry version of Santal Noble. The coffee/Santal Noble impression quickly faded and the fragrance settled into a smooth, dry, woody scent with opponax intensifying a meditative, relaxing mix of sandalwood and rosewood. My first day with Sandalo was a good one but I need furhter testing before I would invest in a full bottle. A cool weather test for this one is a must. Overall, I am very impressed with this Villoresi and am looking forward to testing more fragrances from this line.

    This is wonderful news, Sudsy!

    Tonight I am basking in Patou Pour Homme Prive, thanks to a kind and generous basenoter who is introducing me to male scents...I LOVE IT...now I am realizing how good the men really smell ...the names are taking on meanings for me. For instance, I realize that I like Habit Rouge more than Shalimar...more palatable to me, smoother, less sweet, things tend to go sweet on my skin.

    Patou Pour Homme Prive is truly a smooth and elegant beauty. Museum quality, if you know what I mean. Right now the lavender notes are presenting themselves to me and it is very soothing.
