    Put on a little Hugo Boss Deep Red in the morning cause I couldn't be bothered showering before I got my hair cut just up the road. I think I don't dislike this one as much as I thought I did....

    After getting about two inches taken off and a shower, I put on my much-neglected Armani Mania since this is SUCH a cold and rainy day. It's been ages since I last wore it, and it feels unfamiliar as to how I remember. It doesn't seem nearly so sweet (probably because of all the super sweet concoctions I've been wearing lately), and WAY more woodsy. Still a very comforting, warm scent, that makes me feel sophisticated and classy even though I'm just hanging around the house.

    The scent of the day was picked for me by Taolady:

    Maria Amalia

    I think Taolady, Lady_in_Black and I are the only ones who have this scent and it was the start of a wonderful friendship.
    For those who want to read the notes and the story of a determined Lady, searching for Maria Amalia, go this this thread.

    The sun is shining bright, I have seen buds on the trees already and this fragrance is perfect for today: the earthy and spicy notes sing of a new beginning.
    Perfect choice, my OBB Tao.

    And for the evening, when it will be cold again, Jillsy has chosen a great companion to a dinner party followed by an evening with jazz music:

    Black Cashmere

    I think I need to wear leather and silk with this one
    Also: perfect choice, dear Jillsy.

    A wonderful weekend to you all. Enjoy it to the fullest.

    Geranium Bourbon
    thanks to Jillsy's EXCELLENT taste in choosing my SOTD!!

    I just love this one 'cause it's unusual.Tangy but not excessively citrus - just like lemon geranium with a hint of English rose.

    But I gotta say I was tempted by Riannon's Maria Amalia....y'all gotta try that one too.

(I hate meeting 'the boyfriend' ~ but probably not as much as HE hates meeting 'the parents'!!!") Oh, well...off we go....

    As for myself, I have taken Shalimar for a ride and made a huge dent to my wallet. I bought a pair of heels, a pair of trainers and a Ostrich clutch bag

    But after some more sampling gonna settle in with Volupte!!!!

    SotD was Hiris, suggested for me by Dulci. It's one that gets neglected in my wardrobe, and I enjoyed rediscovering it today (it'll need restocking soon!).

    It's more floral than my usual fare, but not over the top.

    Top notes: Coriander, Carrots, Ambrette
    Middle notes: Neroli, Rose, Orris, Hay
    Base notes: Cedarwood, Almond tree, Vanilla, Honey

    Thanks for a lovely suggestion, Dulci!

    SotE is Flowerbomb EDP + the "Bomblicious" body creme.

    SotD... nothing. Got my hair done so basically I smelled like Aveda hair colour for most of the day. Wore Habanita EdT to dinner at the Pizzaria Napoletana. Great pizza, much fun was had, and according to my Napoletana friend I am an honorary Italian due to my "eat, eat!" attitude.

    To bed in Dat Noir. DH2B has a surprize planned for tomorrow (my birthday, I'll be twelve ) I'm very excited.
