    Default SOTD Sunday 30 December 2007

    Lanvin Eclat d'Arpege again. I really like this one, I just wish it had better staying power on my skin. Oh, well, it's nice on a very hot day like today, anyway.

    Sa Majeste La Rose (Serge Lutens). Like with so many of the SL scents I find the top notes of this one a bit off-putting...Once it has settled on my skin though.....mmmmmm...

    You smell good Musse and tdi!

    Was a bit indecisive for my SotE - put on With Love by Hilary Duff and changed my mind, washed it off then layered Coco Mademoiselle with Miss Dior, got bored and then applied Gucci Envy for men on my other arm.

    I can smell that already some neighbours are starting to prepare our traditional 'oliebollen' for tomorrow, so, heavy artillery is needed.

    Sharing the House with my Brotha (you smell calm and delicious) and a Regal Rat Mother in Roses, I am walking in a cloud of Ambre Sultan (delicious but certainly not calm, I think).
    I admit I overdid it, but that is acceptable when you have to guard yourself against the smell of 'oliebollen'.

    A happy Sunday to all.

    Rousse liberally sprayed on my chest, and a totally obscure, ultra-niche Italian fragrance on my wrists. I am smelling of cinnamon, almond blossom, orange blossom and orange peel. Totally enjoyable

    Spent a happy day yesterday in that marvelous Attrape Coeur sample that Kyra sent to me...
    So good I have to mention it again.

    But today I am off to work, like a few others here, and wearing Viva by Ava Luxe, and feeling quite nostalgic for her perfume house. Viva has ylang ylang and a touch of coconut, I think and is very earthy. If you like Carnal Flower, you would like Viva.

    The more I wear this scent, the happier it makes me. Especially on days like today when there is a very slight chill in the air and lots of rain on the horizon.

    Had a very surprising experiense this morgning...

    I had no wish on earth to choose any frag for the day!

    It ended up whit me putting on Stella by Stella McCartney.

    This has not happend for the two years I have been addicted to perfumes, and I guess this is yer another step for leaving the addicted stage. Sort of sad, I think, but good for my wallet...

    Hi BN Friends!

    I hope you're all enjoying the Season!

    SOTD is from our EARTHTONES series called EARTHTONES #2 - DESERT WIND. The Earthtones Series consists of ten perfumes that are a tribute to the Earth and its various locations and natural phenomena. With DESERT WIND I wanted to call to mind the scents and feelings of high desert air - fresh, warm and dry. It is late afternoon and though still hot, the desert is beginning to cool and there's the promise of rain...somewhere off in the distance.

    Top Notes: Black Pepper, Yuzu, Aldehydes
    Heart Notes: Helional, Lily of the Valley, Hydrangea, Cactus Flower
    Base Notes: White Amber, Cedar, Iso E Super, Myrtlewood, Ambergris, Moss

    Sounds nice, Neil, though hot desert air is the last thing I'm thinking of in chilly London. I'm snuggling in Ava Luxe Madeline again. Boy I'll be sorry when this one runs out.

    I'm wearing the classic Chypre edp by Coty. I have no idea how old this version is. From the moment I sprayed my decant this morning I recognised an old familiar scent from many years ago. I wasn't prepared for just how familiar this would be. For some of you this would be a nostalgic treasure to go wild for. For me it is an unwelcome intrusion which I want to wash off. The quality of it is of no real interest at the moment, I just want it gone.

    Something that sounds very simple to make, but in fact is not. Not for me anyway.

    A dough made with yeast (my mother always added some beer as well). It has to rest for some time. If you like you can add currents and raisins. The trick is to shape a perfect ball with two spoons or a ice cream scooper before you fry the ball in hot oil. Not too hot, not too cold. Not too short, not too long.

    And after that you must wash your hair at least two times, clean the entire kitchen with hot water and soak yourself in a fragrant bath.
    Oh well, it is only once a year

    My 4th (I think?) sampling of Montale's ORIENT EXTREME. I can't make up my mind about this one. There's something very compelling about it, so I continue to re-try, but as soon as I do, I'm put off! I fear it's just not for me and must let it go....
