    Default SotD Tuesday 20 November

    Good morning, I slept late today and couldn't believe my eyes when there was no SotD thread...

    CdG White for me, accidentally most appropriate for the Universal Children's Day.

    Poison - probably not so appropriate for Children's Day!

    Good morning all. I'm swathed in Vrai Blonde from Etat Libre d'Orange. This is a gorgeous incense-leather with notes of peach and rose. This is just the right balance of leather for me. I may have over-applied it a tad, though. I'm sharing an office today with several people, and they might not approve.

    Cooncidentally, I have just opened to my email to find a message from Les Sentuers in which the philosophy of Etat Libre d'Orange is extolled in ridiculous fashion. If I'd read that nonsense before deciding on a fragrance this morning, Vrai Blonde would still be unopened in the sample case.

    Good Morning everybody! I seem to be a bit late today - Tigs you are an early riser!
    It's only 8 a.m. here and you've been up for hours.
    I was thinking of wearing Le Parfum de Therese, but as it's a special day for children (and I'm a part-time teacher) I thought I'd wear Lullaby Superfume instead - as if I need
    any excuse to wear such a dreamy fragrance!!

    Heywo all
    Universal Children's Day? On the one day I wear something described as "old lady perfume"? How ironic!
    No doubt a lot of BNers will be outraged to know that the above mentioned perfume was Mitsouko *hides*. Nah I blame juvenile taste
    Have a great day everyone!

    Ine, I don't think anybody is bored about your eye condition, but rather, if I may speak for all of us, we're worried. So it's good to be kept posted and to hear about some improvement. Fingers crossed, dear! Meanwhile, you sure smell good

    Yes, yes and more yes. Ineespenes, please do keep us posted!

    Day two in Juliette Has a Gun Lady Vengeance for me, as the rose note is realistic (with plenty of leaves and stems) and smells good on me throughout, and the drydown proved delicious and very satisfying, particularly in this misty and chilly fall weather we're having.

    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

    it's funny that this has become a comfort scent for me, when initially I perceived it as aloof.
    maybe it is to a certain degree. there is an appropriateness about it that is like an outer layer, and makes me feel at ease moving about at work, etc.
    the inner, closer to the skin layer is warm and sensual, for myself and those close to me and is not perceived right away or from a distance.

    and I will pipe in to say I would like to be updated on your eye, also, Ine, I think we are all sending you good vibes and hoping you are well soon.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue.

    Spritzed on Naomi Campbell Mystery (from a sample from Musse....!!!) which somehow combines oranges and vanilla over tonka (!!) to good effect. Not awfully mysterious but pretty.

    But now I've discovered that it's Children's Day so will switch to Joy after the morning shower.

    Continuing to send positive energy for the eyeball Ines...keep us informed!! Scary things are best shared amongst friends.

    Testing Chanel No 19 in parfum as my SOTD.

    Will be testing Guerlain Purple Fantasy as my SOTE.

    I never got the Chanel No 5 thing either, until you gave me a sample of the parfum Renee. Yes, I do find the parfum a comfort scent as well, but with a big dose of elegance. I still don't get the EDT or EDP, though.

    Take care of the eye, Ineespense!

    Hello, all my lovelies!
    It's true: We share our cares and want to know about every blink, ineespense.

    I'm feeling quite committed to Hove Rue Royale.
    Just a matter of when, not if, I'll order a bottle
    because my little dram is going quickly.
    Then I'll have enough to spread the stuff around!

    Testing Ayala Moriel's Black Licorice today. Wonderful! The best licorice/anise/absinthe out there, imo. A true bittersweet indulgence, it's the softness of a candied floral with the backbone of a bitter herb. Takes it from girly to ladylike. It has no leather in it, but the combination of bitter with the patchouli (I think) gives it a leathery impression for me. I'm very impressed. Unfortunately, I find that a lot of AM scents don't have great longevity, probably as a result of them being entirely natural in make up. I'll just have to keep reapplying!
    Another belief of mine; that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.
