    Default SotD Thursday 13 December

    Santal Blanc - Serge Lutens
    Probably not a popular choice amongst the export-line. I love it, this is the a an uplifting santal with a bit of cedre. It lasted for about 5 hours on my skin but the drydown reminds me of those Staedtler Pencils which I used to have when I was in primary school.

    From one sea-breezy, salty vetiver scent to another: after days in TDC Sel de Vétiver, I changed into AG Vétiver

    Happy St. Lucia to our Swedish members!

    Inspired by p'birds thread, I am wearing

    Guet Apens

    How come it doesn't agree with me today? It's....high-pitched, harsh. I am hoping it dries down to the creamy sandalwood vanilla base I loved.

    Hoping to have some news from lievje today.

    Mahora for me today - as I'm home waiting for a big snowstorm to hit. My final exam is cancelled so I'll stay cozy at home and get students papers via email, then go out later and play in the snow with the dogs (the poor goats hate snow and will be huddled in their stable).

    After reading the thread in praise of Attrape-Coer, that is what I am wearing today. It suits me better than a lot of Guerlains. I'm happy to wear it.

    I'm still sniffing my wrists with the delicious vanilla residue of Guet-Apens and Attrape-Coeur from testing them last night. Boy did I have good dreams! (Even with a very kicky WordChick in with me). Today it's clear and cold after days of rain. I wanted something spicy so I've added a squirt of L'Occitaine's Eau d'Iparie to my collarbone and I'm quite enjoying the insense and myrrh with the vanilla. (Though I did spot my L'Occitane Neroli - the old one - just after spraying this and think 'pants!'. But hey, I can wear that tomorrow. That's the beauty of perfume.)

    Have a lovely St Lucia everyone. The lightbringer. The perfect day to read the beautiful poem by John Donne. I'll now email my goddaughter whose name is Lucy and wish her a happy day too!

    Cold and muggy here again. Wanted to wear Samsara to work, but scared that it would be too much for my new boss. Will go with modest spritzes of Lalique Le Parfum, I guess.

    Excellent selection. One of my favorites from the CBIHP line. Earthy, mysterious, playing hide-and-seek in a forest.

    Samsara.

    Yesterday I test drove Samsara and Nahema on either wrist and spent the day sniffing the Nahema. Then when I went to bed, the Nahema was all done and and the lovely Samsara wafted by and said "Don't forget about me". Smelled so good, had to wear her today.

    Dang, Zibeline, you smell goooooooooooooood!!!!

    I spent the day playing with CBIHP's "Fire from heaven" (lovely but very basic incense, IMO), and since then rolling around in "Revelation" (fantastic fig and honey concoction... Michael Storer are you listenting?!? Agree with those who voted "Kadota White Fig" and we need a comparison, here...) and then CBIHP's "Wild Hunt" which I ADORE, just for the mushroom notes aloned.
