    Ehrm...in bed with the flu and a laptop, Donna-Dear

    Wearing vintage

    Safari pour Homme

    Unbelievably strong fragrance, bravely fighting its way through my clogged sinuses. Almost as bad as your hordes of Christmas shoppers, I think.

    Also late to the SotD party today....wearing a cuddly comfort scent: Mandorlo di Sicilia from the Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo line.

    This morning we decorated our Christmas tree and the rest of the house. I love the festive feeling as much as when I was a kid!

    Poor Dragon under the attack of the flu virus...hope you get well soon, my dear...

    Just come from the gym and am bumming around at home, so trying another of Renee's samples - this time Creed Imperatrice Eugenie. Smells like jasmine and skank to me - I think I like it!

    Gezundheit, lievje! (Did I get that right??)

    Whilst you're lying there - snuffling - with nothing to do (heh heh heh ) you can start a thread along the lines of "Perfume Oxymorons" about scents with names that are contrary to their smell..

    My SOTD brings this to mind - the love/hate Insolence - that is many things but certainly not (In-My-Never-Humble-Opinion) insolent..."boldly disrespectful in speech or behaviour; impertinent; impudent". Guerlain says this baby has"panache, verve and spirit"....on ME anyway it is all about violets and some other flowers with a hint of raspberry and is very tea-in-the-afternoon-on-the-lawn-with-the-DAR. And the bottle (which I LUVLUVLUV) - going in the opposite direction - looks drunk.

    Oh well. What do I know. I also adore this rather un-Guerlainy Guerlain (same like Champs Elysees - another frag of adoration)....maybe I'm just dyspeptic 'cause I have to go to work and it's very quiet there - and very boring.

    I also think that insolence is very sweet and not at all rude.

    Sending out healthy wishes!

    I am feeling very chic, thanks to reading the excerpt from Chandler Burr's book mentioning my SOTD (http://www.chandlerburr.com/newsite/...excerpts/5.php) , last night's gift of

    Tabac Blond.

    Though I can't say I smell leather so much as get the uncanny urge to wear leather. I'll need to fish out my old rummage sale leather blazer, I think.

    NO WORK TODAY! Yay! Nothing but invoicing planned for next week!

    I'm going to shower and checkerboard myself in samples.

    Not enough "bottom" or something.

    Sampling Liz Zorn's JoJo:

    from the Liz Zorn website:
    JOJO the perfume pays homage to silver screen sirens and the unapologetic nature of a shameless turn of the century floral. Classic in design with a bold citrus opening that folds into a soft earthy floral heart, enhanced by the addition of a roasted coffee note set to a dry, yet woody chypre base.Notes: Bergamot, Key Lime, blood Orange, Boronia, Neroli, Ylang Extra, Cassie, jasmine Absolute, Pimento Berry, Rose Absolute, Linden Flower, Mimosa Absolute, Rosewood, Atlas Cedar, labdanum, Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Cabreuva4
    Quite a bit of sillage and longevity for a natural perfume, and quite stunning. An
    homage to silver screen sirens
    really seems to fit the bill. I can see wearing this one for a fancy night out on the town.
