    Default SOTD - FRIDAY August 17th

    I think I will end my week with POSSETS.

    It just seems like an Ultramarine Blue day today.

    Halston Z-14 by Halston. Sounds like I should be driving it instead of wearing it (for the first time). Should be an interesting day

    The Iris conspiracy didn't end... I randomly pulled out the Lauren and wore it to work.
    During my lunch break I received a small parcel from London during my lunchbreak and guess what! It is a bottle of Ysatis - Iris by Givenchy. I will be wearing the Iris tonight!

    We set a record high yesterday at 105 F. Today it will be cooler, a mere 99. I woke up early today at 4:30 am and instead of drifting back off to sleep after my cup of water I thought
    'Hey, I want to wear Mimosa pour Moi today!' Geesh--I really am off the deep end with these fragrances when the prospect of a SotD can get me up before dawn.
    Please, spritz responsibly.

    Grabbed a sample of La Rose Angel - or is it Angel La Rose???

    Swe-e-e-e-et! Perfect for tonight's wedding rehearsal on the beach. (in the late 90s F - 35 C ) here today, folks. Am almost envious of you guys experiencing early Autumn!!)

    Habit Rouge today, but with a spritz of Eau de Camille on one arm, since I know it will fade before I even leave the house, but I can enjoy the wet honeyed honeysuckle (is that redundant) wafting over the dewy grass.

    Even as I type the warm vanilla of the HR is taking center stage.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. 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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    This is the time of the year when anything goes scentwise. You can get away with just about anything really. Autumn is definitely on the way here too, with about 50°F/10°C as I'm typing this and yet I cannot make up my mind about what to choose for the day. The sunshine is just stunning as it streams through the boughs of trees and spills itself in golden rivulets at my feet and carries with it the promise of slightly warmer temperatures. Today's high will be about: 75°F/24°C and I can still smell that gorgeous scent in the drydown of Parfumerie Generale Aomassai - I've been wearing it to bed lately, but what for today then?

    Couldn't resist dragging on the Iris conspiracy, so today it's Iris Poudre for me, with Hermes Hiris in the crook of one elbow for fun.

    Jeans day at work today (woo-hoo!) as my colleagues and I get to try to organize the chaos that is our offices, as well as the conference and storage rooms. Ugh! I'd rather wear a suit and three-inch heels.
    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

    I put on my customary Nanadebary Green this morning, but it isn't scratch the usual itch. The nights are getting cooler, and I think I may be switching over to a different frag.

    Thank you, Nanny G, for a long wonderful ride this summer!

    Autumn is one it's way here too. We have had an exceptional good summer this year, so let it come.

    I dug out Hypnotic Poison to finish it off today.
    For some reason it made me nauseous, and wouldn't go away, I could smell it all day.That's Murphys law, isn't it?

    Well, now it is in the dustbin. I was never thrilled about it, but didn't hate it either. Maybe I'm about to loose my sweet tooth.

    Oversprayed with Y vintage, now I feel much better thank you.
