    Default SotD Tuesday 12th February 2008

    Can't believe I am starting the SotD thread so late - where are you, early birds?

    I am wearing the incredibly smooth and sexy

    Profumum Fiore d'Ambra

    Have a nice day, folks!

    Serge Lutens Chypre Rouge.
    This one is a real oddity and much as I'm fascinated by it, I find it hard to wear. I am looking to cull some of my collection and this one will be among those I get rid off.

    Kenzo Amour perfumed body nectar - "frangipani blossoms from Bali or Borobudur, cherry blossoms from Japan, thanaka wood (worn by women and children in Myanmar), incense and rice, vanilla and white tea from China." but if you hadn't read that you'd think of honey.

    And over that is SL's great AMBRE SULTAN

    I am very happy with the way I smell this morning.

    Today I enjoyed a beautiful sunny day in Miss Dior Cherie. A big thank you to the lovely TaoLady for choosing this one for me! I haven't worn it yet this month, and while I kept thinking I should wear it, I always would end up in something else for some reason. THOROUGHLY enjoyed it today!

    Then wore The Body Shop Vanilla oil to go shopping in the afternoon. Tried something by Antonia's Flowers which I can't remember the name of, but mixed with the vanilla it smells yum!

    Got a generous sample of

    from Sloan-8013
    and am going to try to make it last all day. Thought I could stay away from sweetness for a few days but this is hazelnuts - and licorice and oranges and wodsy grasses and totally edible.....I have the moral fibre of an egg.

    My Kenzo came from a little sample, and I'm so pleased with it that I'll buy a full one. The same Kenzo shower gel wasn't up to much, though, I couldn't get a lather from it and it didn't have much fragrance.

    Hermes - Kelly Caleche.

    There is a sickly sweet note in here (reminds me of that yucky synthetic Passionfruit hand soap from Bath and Body Works) that weaves in and out of a beautiful iris/wood/leather combo.

    I have a feeling my body has glommed onto a note that it doesn't like and amplified it.

    Anyone else have the same problem with this scent or has my nose gone completely wonky?

    I think you should get a bottle of this as it seems to be growing into a favorite. I am leaning toward trying one of their sampler packages!

    I did not get online to post my SOTD for Tuesday, my husband was home sick with the flu. I was busy waiting on him hand and foot, and making a chicken soup from scratch (He's convinced my chicken soup has healing powers.) So while I mostly smelt of chicken soup, I did spritz on some Azzaro Orange Tonic (in the hopes that somehow it will ward off flu bugs).
