    Default SotD Thursday 18 October

    Today I'm test-driving the fourth and so far the latest Mona di Orio scent: Oiro.

    Lux turned out to be very long-lasting, could still smell it this morning, the vetiver note in it is really lovely.

    Have a great day!

    I'm tickled today! I sent off a check to a lady for daylily seeds, and on the spur of the moment I made her some samples of my fall favorites. I emailed to alert her to be looking for a small bubble envelope and said I didn't know how she felt about fragrances but I'd sent her some samples of my fall favorites, and mentioned how I'd missed my basenotes time with all the daylily work. She replied she was familiar with basenotes, recommended the NowSmellThis blog, and said her favorite was Serge Lutens Un Lys! Ah, the universal wonder of Un Lys! I sent Lily & Spice among others--we'll see how that one goes over.

    I got to sniff each of my favorites as I decanted and now I'm choosing to luxuriate in Jalaine's Patchouli. Hmmmmmmmm. I tell you, it just changes my world.

    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 hope you feel better lievje. That's a nice comforting choice.

    Me, I'm in Chanel no 5 again. Can't get away from the soft floral chypre. It just seems perfect and I don't want to mess with 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."

    Riannon, I got a card a few days ago for Susan's husband, since I have sixty dollars to refund him for the box of samples I hadn't mailed. I'm too prone to tears to look at the picture. I think that's why I made up samples for this daylily stranger. There's a quote from Mother Theresa I like, as it comforts me-- "We can do no great things. We can do only small things with great love."

    Thanks for the heads-up. I went to the thread and opened your links.
    Sudsy appears to have been a happy and peaceful person on this earth; her spirt should continue along that path. As the Aussies say, "No worries."

    Needed some warmth here, dabbed a little Serge Lutens Loukoum, keeping up with the Gourmand 3 x 3 Blind Test group. Those have been fun posts.

    Extra little squeezie hugs for Shycat and Riannon. Susan's now in my "mind album."

    Pumped with caffeine and Rochas Femme. Not really feeling the perfume thrill, but not nauseated either.

    Daughter's on her way to the airport to visit her friend in Queens. At the last minute she asked, "Do you want me to get you any perfume samples while I'm in New York?"

    Scribble, scribble, scribe, note, cursive, print ... "Here!" I gave her a list of brand new frags she can show to SAs. I dare not hope.

    Oddly enough this is sort of a "go to" scent for me. It's funny because I don't particularly love it, but sometimes it's the only thing that fits.

    Testing the Kelly Calèche afterwork... I don't have a strong opinion on this as it is nothing like the original Calèche. It it is a fairly easy leather to wear. It is a good introductory scent for the anti-leathers. First whiff was a bit sweet and reminded me of the Dior Cherie, CoCoM... after the candy fades, the mossy bits surface. It has a good staying power, but I don't think I need another bottle of the 'modern-chypre' :bounce:

    Today I'm surprising myself by wearing Eternity Moment. Amazing. Just when I think I will never wear something again, I douse myself in it, and then remember why I bought it in the first place!
