Mandragore - Annick Goutal
Thread: SotD Sunday November 18, 2007
Wakey wakey rise and shine everyone! Nah of course not, it's a Sunday Haha it's about 9.45pm here and yet there's no SotD thread yet! My turn again then.
I'm now wearing Cinema Festival D'ete. In the morning I combined 3 pink, tacky celebrity fragrances and ended up smelling like fruit cocktails and icing sugar. I suppose it matched my tacky pink nails (a few days ago my friend decided to paint my nails fluorescent pink to match hers! uhohs! :P).
Anyway enough of my rambling, have a great day everyone!
Mandragore - Annick Goutal

You're my kind of girl, Jillsy Baby!! Was tempted to go for Pink Sugar with Fantasy and Miami Glo to match your mood when I discovered that my one and only sample of Ambre Sultan had leaked all over the satin sample box without me ever having had a chance to spread it all over my beautiful bod.
Am consoling self with Miss Dior Cherie.

Another vote here for Annick Goutal: I'm wearing Rose Absolue today.
Morning people My eye is worse than ever today...so guess I really should stay away from the pc.Well,not before I've posted on the sotd thread Wearing Crystal Noir today.Hope you all have a wonderful sunday!
Take care Ineespenes!!!! We want to have you be able to see the computer for many years to come! Are you able to treat the condition, or is this one of those "wait it out" sort of deals?
Despite the crisp fall weather, I am testing the last bits of Creed Green Valley (thanks, RentBoy!). I smell completely out-of-season, like I've just returned from New Zealand (where I do believe they are firmly into Spring)... All sunny, sparkling citrus and grass/mint/moss. I don't usually think of Creeds as "happy" fragrances, but I think this one is! I'll need to drag GV out in the depths of January, and again when the warm weather hits here.

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
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Pink Sugar - went to a hospital fund raising event today. I feel good!
Take care, Ineespenses.
I'm wearing Ofrésia today on a cold and sunny afternoon.

Sorry, ineespenes. Haven't the doctors done anything for you yet?
A doctor explained to me: the mucous membrane is one, continuous tissue throughout the eyes, nose (sinus), and throat. Eye infections can originate anywhere along that route. Systemtic antibiotics (oral or injection) are necessary.
I will wear Mitsouko today again.
And Crystal Noir is my favorite Versace.

Today I'm wearing Jalaine Amber + Vanilla. It's nice and warm.
Have a good Sunday everyone!
Ouch ineespenes - I hope the eye clears up soon. Have you thought about a rakish eye patch until it gets better
Lazy Sunday at home, so sprayed on a bit of Chypre Rouge.
Be well, ineespenes.
Full-frontal Dzing! for me today.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Tested Immortelle L"Amour by Ayala Moriel this morning.
Very warm and even though no chocolate is listed, it reminded me of pure dark organic chocolate, not sweet, but dark and warm, and with something that reminds me of the autumn woods in the drydown.
Gourmand, but not overly sweet and therefore wearable. A definite comfort scent. Those who love Angel should really give this one a try.
Now back in Bandit for the day. I need some freedom of spirit before the new work week begins tomorrow. I'll be working straight through the holiday. Perhaps I should wear Immortelle L'Amour on Thanksgiving.
"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."

What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
Oh my God! I went to work without parfum!!! I was desperat - usually I have some in my purse. Well - now I'm wearing SL Chypre Rouge
I got some SL samples in Scotland - I AM IN HEAVEN
Take good care of yourself, ineespenes!!
I have been inside a cloud af my new love Un Bois Vanille all day. Wonder how long this relationship will last - my fragrant love stories usually end before the bottle is half empty...
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Thanks for all the get well wishes It seems I have something called "Uveitis".It's an infection that attacks the iris from the inside of the eye.If not treated I could get blinde because of cell changes in the eye.The eye is very irritated and red now,but will see what the doctor says tomorrow.The eye-stuff is a sympthom of something else.I might have Bechtrev(my mom has this too)

Ineespenes, I am so sorry about your eye - I hope it heals soon and is no symptom for the spondylitis your mum has. Hugs and good vibes are headed your way.
Lazy sunday with multiple testing....I wore Paco Rabanne Black XS for a while but wasn't satisfied at all.
Feeling better now, after a shower and a generous dose of L'Erbolario Iris liquid talc . I might spritz on also some FM Iris Poudre.
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
I'm wearing Habanita, one of my "happy place" frags, today.
I'm sorry to hear of your eye problems, ineespenes. Hope you are feeling better soon ...
I've trademarked the color bleu
