    Default SotD Thursday November 15, 2007

    Wow, where is everyone?

    Wearing the body shop strawberry oil today. Nicked off to the mall this afternoon to check out the perfume counters and got sprayed with britney's midnight fantasy :S Arrived home and was told I smelled like "a posh hotel toilet" hahaha.

    Have a nice day everyone!

    Now dear, at least it was a posh toilet. Could have been much worse

    Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed here for a challenging new day.

    I think I will need the 'don't mess with me' safety of Musc Ravageur, leather pants and boots.

    Thursday, here I come.

    A great day to you all.

    Good morning!

    High on caffeine, drinking a hot cappuccino and wearing Bond n.9 So New York.

    Lievje, as to your yesterday's question on Escapades, lili's scents can be found on her blog, La Vie en Douce. I am going to post the link for you later..can't find it right now. You find descriptions of some of her scents on the blog, but I can hand you over her notes/price list. Samples are very generous! In fact they are 8 ml decants .

    Later: found the link: http://lilioh.canalblog.com.
    Of course, I am not affiliated etc. etc.

    Nah! How about that Sunny and cold over here as well!! We may not wear the same scent, but at least we are 'weather Sista's'

    Ineespenes, you poor thing that sounds horribly painful. I hope the specialist appreciated your L'Heure Bleue. One of my favorite Guerlains as well.
    Get well soon, dear.

    Oh, Ineespenes-

    I hope you feel better soon...[you smelled royal!]

    Today, I'm wearing I Profumi's Muschio Bello.
    I'm struck by its similarity to KM's Myrrhe et Merveilles- only, it's softer,less 'loud'.
    VERY pretty, cheery, long-lasting.
    [Probably layers well]

    My BF has announced that he has a signature scent. Third Man by Caron. He says he knows its a commitment, but he's ready for it. (he has also said, well, it's the closest one to my hand when I open the wardrobe door)

    I am in Chanel no. 5, I too, seem to be a one scent woman these days.

    I've got yet another big work meeting... Hoping to tame the rabble by wearing Parfums MDCI Invasion Barbare. Maybe they'll surrender any concerns just to smell me.
    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

    Feelin' classy this ayem, so reached to the bottom of the shelf for the incomparable 1000 (never mind the workout clothes - "i'm a lady") ....thanks to a swap with the incomparable Kyra.

    I just love and must echo this impassioned review from the BN Directory:

    "I also buy on ebay ,(like JOY)
    a perfect bottle,perfect jus,
    I'm in love with osmanthus also,damasccena rose ,centifiliarose,mysore santal,indonesian patchouli,violeta odorata,
    this "jus" it's a jungle in a bottle,
    a golden apricot fallen from paradise on a silky bag of pure flawoers and pearl of resin!!tears commes on eyes directly ,pure beauty
    pure emotion, MERCI Monsieur Jean ERLEO
    for your ten years work!!!
    For those who "tell -old fashion-
    take look to my remark in JOY case-
    in PARIS today,we have to run to colect the last bottle "1000" they stop
    !!!it's a pitty ,they whant to destroy our smelly patrimony,tey are mad with they synthetics fragrance allways the same ,allways more allways worse!!!

    Hope you feel better soon Ineespenes, of all the ailments, eye problems scare me most. I have a job where there is a constant threat of injury, and I wear eye protection probably more than I need to.


    Tough decision today, as days off open up scent possibilities precluded by my employment.

    So, starting my day in a walloping dose of Mitsouko!

    Wore my new Berdoues Naturelle after bath last night, nice gentle citrus but needs a sprayer.

    Not been here much recently - my mother-in-law died suddenly 3 weeks ago and we are gutted that she won't be here to meet her first grand-daughter in January. It seems so unfair. I have been living in comforting vanilla and almond scents for the last few weeks.

    More warm wishes to Ineespenes. Take care of yourself, dear!

    And peace to our purplebird; the review showed more enthusiasm than accuracy or something was lost in translation. As far as I know, 1000 is alive and well.

    Anyway- lots of testing of late (just fell for Miss Dior) and wearing a lot of Eau d’Random Decanting. In Pom Noire this afternoon.

    And Tao-sugar. You smell amazing. Why is it on the bottom shelf?

    Can't speak for Touti007 (and apparently neither can she, since she has not posted at all since joining in January of this year!)....I think her English couldn't keep up with her feelings but quoted her review in entirety because I was touched by her passion of for this beautiful fragrance - SO French.

    (I could have quoted YOUR most excellent review of course....anyone who hasn't read it should!)
