    Default SoTD, Saturday, August 25, 2007

    I know it's not Saturday in my time zone yet, but I'm going to be out of town, and needed to be on the record (and with dragon fireworks no less) as wishing a VERY happy birthday to Riannon!!!!



    In your honor, bear-sister, I will be wearing Profumum Fiore d'Ambra. Mmmmmmmmmmm...
    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

    C, the fact that you've now opened this thread saves me from having to wake up at 5 AM to do it myself . So, here goes:

    This day, dear Basenoters, is a special one! We are celebrating the birthday of our lovely member Riannon. She has proven an extremely kind, generous and helpful person to many of us. Always there with a fun new puzzle on the 'guess the scent by the picture' thread, sharing her love for Guerlain and Lutens (not to forget the splendid weeks we've had with those houses!), or simply ready to give advice. Congratulations, my beloved strong & humorous Dragon, and may you have many more years filled with joy, perfume-passion and fine people around you!


    In your honor, today I'm wearing Eau d'Hadrien. Pop a few bell bottles, bring out the champagne and put on the highly scented leather: have an unforgettable day!

    P.S.
    Don't forget to keep your eye on a few of the member's avatars today...


    P.P.S.
    Also: hurray to madridbatabidd!

    Today is already Saturday here & this August 25th I am sampling "Mean N' Green Fragrance 'A'".
    I haven't the least idea what it is, but it's about the same shade of green as Riannon's sleeping dragon here, and I like it!
    Happy B'Day Riannon & madridbatabidd (whoever & wherever you are!)

    Not midnight yet in my time zone either, but I wanted to participate too! People with avatars did their job, I will do mine: wear a fragrance in Riannon's honor. Sampling today, I had a choice and was even trying to add up the words for Attrape Coeur, but decided to go with a different fragrance:

    So close, no matter how far
    Couldn't be much more from the heart
    Forever trusting ylang and vanilla
    And nothing else matters...

    It always opens itself this way:
    Life is here, she lives it her way.
    Old-fashioned? Half funny? Half sunny?
    Best quality matters!

    Any guesses?

    "Dragons are the valiant defender of all that is good. They are fierce in their protection of all they love. And when there is someone to defend, someone who is being abused, Dragons come to the fore and right the wrongs.


    Dragons are good and were created for the protection of mankind. Dragons love company, but can be very testy at times, so feel free to visit with them, but respect them and whatever you do, don't touch their hordes!"

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY

    to my mystical and magical friend - my dearest DragonBambina!




    In Riannon's honour, I will be wearing Métallica today.

    My dear, wonderful friends, this must be the best birthday present ever.

    Only here, in this enchanted place, you will see a sudden hoard of Dragons appear, read Teasing Poems and the loving words of friends.
    No smilies today. Nothing could express my feelings of deepest friendship for you all sufficiently.

    Celebrating today in Guet Apens. But this evening: a Dragon in Cuir Mauresque and green leather. Can't disappoint Hannibal.

    Lord, do you all smell delicious! I wish you were here so I could hug you.

    A, my Queen of Teasers, is that fragrance maybe Chamade? (heartshaped, Ylang, Vanilla)
    Quarry, how on earth did you made that avatar??

    Enjoy this day as I am doing now.
    And thank you again for this wonderful birthday gift

    HAPPYHAPPYHAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL DRAGON!!!

    With love and gratitude for all you have given to me!
    (and thanx to BrothaG for organizing us!!)

    As for SotD:

    Picture this....freshly showered (with unscented gel) and oiled (I have dry skin and use unscented jojoba oil as a base on wrists and forearms [and elbows] face, throat and [beautiful] chest!!) I approach my desk with it's beckoning packet of 3X3 Light'nWhites - quivering with anticipation!!! (Me, not the packet.)

    OK - here's A.! Pale yellow/orange - rather like the color of white tea - and like sample B is slightly more viscous than C. So an EDP or oil?

    First sniff of bottle/vial is bright and sharp but not hesperidic. First sniff on application is JASMINEJASMINEJASMINE and a bit green. Smart. I think a bit of frangipani in there...and a hint of gardenia. After one hour it has mellowed down - a slight hint of sandalwood and maybe castoreum?? - with the jasmine and frangipani battling it out for first place. Reminds me a bit of Ayala's Tamaya.

    I like it - it's perfect for this hot humid day. Is it FBW - the jury's still out.

    It's name?

    Beats me!

    Couldn't figure out what to wear as nothing I own was "deep" enough for me.
    I sprayed on some CK Obsession which almost hit the spot, but then veered way off course. It went from cheap, to "ok", and now it's play-doh.

    Gonna go put on something else before my kids try to mold me into something.

    It was a bit painful for Ms. de Bary, what with all the scale-to-skin grafting , but being an artist, she understands suffering for one's art.

    Okay, truth is, I searched online for a dragon line drawing that was at the right angle, then brought the needed portions together in Photoshop. So happy to tickle you on your special day.

    So ... does a fire-breathing dragon blow out all the candles on its cake or make a wish and ignite them instead?

    Ehrm, I am afraid that the fire-breathing dragon cindered the cake a little bit

    Ms. de Bary did not suffer in vain, I love her Dragonlooks.
