    Default SotD Thursday 29 November

    Seems I am the first to post Goodmorning, ladies and gentlemen.
    Another fragrant day is waiting.

    Continuing my Guerlain week in two fragrances, "two hearts beating like one"

    Chamade extrait and a light spray of Chamade Pour Homme EDT on one wrist.

    A great Thursday to you all.

    "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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    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

    This is what I love about this site - I learn so much about other cultures and am constantly reminded that we are never that far apart.

    Wearing Ava Luxe Loukhoum (which, sadly, I can't seem to wear by itself) with CSP Vanille Amande layered heavily on top. The AL seems to ground the CSP and adds some nice dryness and complexity. The combo also seems to amplify the sweet almond note in the CSP.

    I'm not much of a combo gal (still too new at this to do it with any confidence), but this one works nicely. And, despite wearing more perfume than usual today, I've received no complaints.

    Anyhoo, I am wearing Rose Essentielle by Bulgari today.
    It is nice and inoffensive, but for some reason I came to think about rose scents in general, and realized that I really don' t have many frag faves (-if any) where rose is a prominent note.

    I think it's still commonly used, but then I'm as old as you are , so I may not be the one to say.

    Took a break from work, took a good, scrubby shower and applied Ambre Narguile along with a little L'Eau de Navigateur. Mmmmmm.

    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    Whether I like it or not, I am wearing 31 Rue Cambon. I do like it, but had not meant to wear it today.

    Let me take this opportunity to bash Chanel for this piece of user hostile design. The bottle, while stately and monumental is not hand friendly. I do not have tiny hands. I can’t wear “one size fits all” gloves. I wear a women’s large or men’s medium. This bottle might be comfortable for someone with the paws of a bear. (DS1 comes to mind and I’m just not seeing him in exclusive Chanels.) And the combination of size and concentration is difficult. Being an edt, refreshing it mid-day is warranted. This is not a purse spray and this is designed to make it bloody difficult to get into a purse spray. The bottle is difficult to grasp and the spray is generous and wide angled. Let’s hear it for the thoughtful houses that package bottles that can be switched at will for splashing, spraying and transferring.

    Wore Michael Storer's Genevieve to work today. I like very much! Starts out as tangy, juicy roses, very fruity, but dries down extremely powdery, elegant, and self-assured.

    Now am testing Sage Onyx oil. Nice. I get a warm milky, coconut (with something that reminds me of AL Milk and you all know how I feel about that!) and some light musk. I like it but I feel like it needs a little more ooomph!
