    Default SotD Friday 29th of February

    Tis the last day of February and weather has turned really cold - Autumn is here already! So I'm all prepared in my sample of Amour de Cacao and a mug of hot chocolate. Is everyone ready for diversity month?

    Have a great day and TGIF!

    Have decided to end this month of bizarre weather and dramatic happenings with a safe staple of mine: Revlon Fire & Ice. This is just perfect for a slow, lazy, slightly hung-over Friday.

    I will spend March in fragrances created by female perfumers, so this is the last chance to luxuriate in Lutens/Sheldrake.

    Starting the day in Chergui, for the afternoon Cuir Mauresque and tonight.....Rahät Loukoum

    *a whole month without Lutens? *

    Started the morning in Ayala Moriel Song of Songs - a pretty myrrh
    After a shower, now wearing - DSH Fire Opal. This one reminds me of mulled wine.

    Might work nicely for an evening of wine and cheese tasting.....

    BTW - Dimples, Botrytis really makes wine taste yummy! I vote for that one!

    I went upstairs three times today to put on fragrance, and three times came back down unscented with a load of laundry. Sheesh. Finally I spritzed on some Chance by Chanel from a sample. It's really too sweet for my taste, but I've got a lot of yard work to do, new holes to dig (whaddya mean Kaffir lilies don't like full sun?! It's been there all winter!), and its youthfulness is invigorating. So, I'm off to rotate laundry and move the lily.

    That Karl Lagerfeld Chloe Narcisse that I put in the morning is a laster. There were times (early 90's) that it was one of the three bottles I owned and did not even think about the whole fragrant Universe somewhere out there. Not listed in the Directory and getting harder and harder to get. Will definitely return to it, and recommend to everyone looking for a floral with a nuclear staying power and magnificent throw.

    ComDiva, I suppose you will be just fine with d'Ida and Odette, they are all female names. I will probably be fine with Chloe as well, who says it is male?
