    Default SotD Sunday 1 June

    Wow! No one's made a SotD thread yet? Well, I guess I just can't wait any longer so I'll make one... Pinch and a punch for the first day of the month everyone!

    Today, on a raining, cold day, I am wearing the sweet, comforting L de Lolita Lempicka. I'm going to be wearing this scent all week to see if I can get a fragrance that NO ONE would expect into the weekly stats! Yes, that's right. I'm such a rebel! So if anyone would like to join me in L de Lolita Lempicka this week, I'll be most happy in your sweet-scented company.

    Have a good Sunday everyone!

    Ahhhhh!!!!!

    But my dear ladies, would I let you down? Last week I just got a bottle of ''L' and it is simply begging me to be used.
    Maybe even for a whole week

    So, on this warm, overcast and very humid day:

    L de Lolita Lempicka

    Nose: Maurice Roucel.

    ::note to LIB: at the moment it does not smell exactly the same as your precious L'Oiseau de Nuit anymore!::

    Didn´t know what to wear today, but (like always!) this thread is the best source for inspiration.

    L de Lempicka for today I like the sweetness in it, but wish that burnt smell was less pronounced on my skin. Burnt sugar, burnt cinnamon, burnt vanilla....


    Have an ab fab Sunday, all! :bounce:

    Even nights do not give us any break from outrageous humidity. I can't even start imagining what people on the coast do. What do you do, folks? :wave:

    Remember, it is all about Citrus S'n'S this coming Saturday? I guess I will start the week with Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbano Light Blue. It was realeased when I was already here in the USA, so I was not able to witness its peak of popularity in Europe when, reportedly, everyone and their dog was wearing it. As much as I absolutely hate the magazine campaign for it, I adore its green tart apples in the very beginning, clean and bright lemons in the middle and woody finish.

    Will anyone care to join me in wearing lemon/lime/orange/bergamot/mandarin/tangerine/grapefruit/kumquat scents for the whole week?

    Oh, Twolfie-
    If it would continue to be 'Dallas swelter', I'd do it in a NY Minute !
    Last night, it finally 'cleared out' here-

    Musse, I love your dog.
    Tavorna- I love L- but it's not feeling like L weather here [ I could put a drop , somewhere- for solidarity...!]

    Yesterday, I kept spraying AL Moss.
    At night, I covered everything in YR Gardenia- THAT was heaven...

    Not sure today.
    I just might 3ieme Homme myself- so fresh and exotic as well.

    Take care, darlings !

    Finally remembered to apply my SotE - so I'm right there with ya in the L de Lolita Lempicka. Perfect for the cold weather here. I'm rather jealous of all the people in the northern hemisphere....

    Ooh... a new challenge. Wonder if I can manage L de Lolita Lempicka mornings and citrusy nights? I'm going to scour through my wardrobe for something fitting... there's a few with citrus but nothing very prominent that I can think of. Will that be alright?

    Of, course, dear! It is very hot here too, I have already taken a second shower after doing some weeding. Now I will spray on Lemon Sugar by Fresh, seek for shelter in the shadow under the blooming lilac tree in the garden with a good book ("Don´t Let´s Go to the Dogs Tonight" by Alexandra Fuller).

    in the wee hours of the morning I was watching Interview with a Vampire and wore Une Histoire de Chypre by Molinard ... it went perfectly with the atmosphere of the movie that went through historic Paris and New Orleans.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Testing a sample of Aqua Allegoria Angelique Lilas this morning. Pleasant enough, but it doesn't wow me.

    Apologies, but I won't be able to join the L de Lolita Lempicka team this week as I don't own any. Used to have a sample somewhere but can't find it.

    Pleasant day everyone!

    Good morning, everyone!

    Dear daughter's dance recital today, and didn't get the "citrus" note early enough... I'm in Parfumerie Generale's Cuir d'Iris.

    My goodness, I love this stuff.

    Flicking through The Emperor of Scent today reminded me of Tabac Blond and made me crave this leathered, floral eccentric.
    Bliss.

    Oooh this will be a challenge. I am not drawn to citrus scents. I don't have any in my wardrobe and only a few samples. I really should do this. There has to be something out there to love...

    sotd will be D&G light blue. I've sprayed this on a few times. I have a sample But I just never really cared enough for it to really give it a try. It will be fun to give it a fun wearing and see if anything happens.

    Then I am off to sephora to see if I can find L de Lolita Lempicka and a couple more citrus options to supplement the few I have.

    L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme as SotD. Notes of citrus, pepper, patchouli, cocoa, tea among others. Very interesting and very nice!

    Sheesh!
    I'd love to participate but I don't have (not even one tiny sample) of "L" Lolita Lempika. So I can't help mess with the stats on this one but I do have Molinard Une Histoire de Chypre pour Aedes. Love it!
    I put on Kingsbury's Lime Lift but it's already gone, so I'm now applying the deliciously long lasting & equally gorgeous, Une Histoire de Chypre!

    Sadly, little miss Lempicka and I have never gotten along, so cannot help out with the stats for this week.

    I'm in the lovely JUICY COUTURE this morning, and am really enjoying it's developement. It seems to do better on hot sunny days! Yum!

    I do not have Lolita Lempicka L, so for today I am doing a DRUGSTORE SHOOTOUT with the following:

    Left Arm: Lady Stetson
    Right Arm: Dior Dune

    Maybe it is not a fair comparison since the Dior is clearly in a different class price-wise. However, I do love cheap thrills, and I think the Lady Stetson really holds up with Dune.

    At first spray, LS is very aldehydic, almost off-putting. This stage fades relatively quickly to reveal a powdery floral with very light leather. The Guide compares it to Chanel No. 22. I actually think it reminds me more of Chanel Coco or maybe a little bit of Estee Lauder Knowing.

    Dune so far has not deviated much from its first dab (I have a dabber sample). It seems very gourmand to me, maybe sort of like Angel, although I try not to sniff Angel very often, so I can't be certain of this comparison. Dune does not set off my sore throat reaction like some of the newer gourmands do. And although it probably was not meant to be in the gourmand fragrance category, it is clearly a sweet oriental with woods underneath.

    Both are great, and at such low prices, who is to say I can't have both

    I will be going to the mall today, so I will see if I can get a sample of LLL.

    My Sunday begins with Keiko Mecheri Osmanthus, went CD shopping, instead I found Organza Indecence in a crummy old cosmetics store, bought it at a very very reasonable, jumping up and down and couldn't stop smelling my wrist the whole afternoon.

    Tavorna my choice of "L" was a pure accident!
    What a coincidence though .
    I posted my SotD then read the thread from
    bottom up - of course .

    Cool!

    Our current houseguest is from New Orleans (her family was one who lost their house and everything in it to Katrina), and she's seeing our northern country for the first time. We're taking her to a prairie planting this afternoon.

    Citrus??? Twolf, you're just setting me up. A week with Eleftorea, Mandragore, La Rose du Petit Prince and today's SotD, CdG Lily (lemony LoTV), will be E-Z.

    But that counts for Twolf's citrus week with its mandarin, isn't it?

    Since I, like Riannon (), bought a small bottle of L about ten days ago, I am going to support the joint effort to push it into the leading position this week!
