    Default SotD Saturday 27 November

    Testing DSH Mata Hari and liking it very much. The scent it reminds me most of is Mitsouko, but Mata Hari is spicier and has more "burn". A spicy, mossy fruit Chypre with a lovely musty quality.

    Lots of snow in my part of the world this morning (well, what passes for lots of snow in the UK, which is about 2 inches). Fabulous - and in the words of the song, since I've no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! So long as it's gone by Monday, so I can get into work...

    Lovely scents !

    Again, thanks for the new server Grant !

    Today I cut my hair again - I guess somewhere along the history of time I was a 1920s flapper girl because I have returned to the bobbed cut. Not too short but just right for me. Shorter than the cut you see in my avatar. Hence, Shalimar ( a 1920s girlie herself ) it was again for me ........
    however I did managed to spray myself with Midnight Poison at the Dior Counter too which reminds me of Gucci By Gucci .

    Its my sixth day with Chamade.
    Still ejoying my one-week experiment, and Its still fullfilling love. I dont need to reapply, and in the evenings the drydown on my skin is just wonderful. (I feel beautiful in it, actually). But for the first time I felt I needed something else - I was giving a sort of public lecture with lots of people. If I havent been commited I would have chooses another scent. Chamade to me felt too - sensible, vulnerable and even a bit passive maybe...? Would have gone for something more energetic. But we did ok.

    Hope You enjoy Your weekend, all!

    One of the first things I thought of yesterday morning before I even got out of bed was: It's Mike Perez's birthday!


    Suffered serious Basenotes withdrawal yesters, but I knew it would be worth it in the long run. Now, everybody be extra quiet, Grant's got a lot of sleep to catch up on.

    Good morning all! And Happy Birthday to Mike!

    I've layered AG Eau d'Hadrien over L'Artisan Mimosa Pour Moi.

    This is my attempt to lighten up the cloying aspect of this mimosa, after noticing that I found L'Occitane's Mimosa de l'Estérel easier to wear and lighter (citrus notes are not listed in the L'Occitane but it seemed to me there might be some.)

    In a little while I'll be taking my daughter to the local mall to walk around. We don't need anything -- Christmas shopping is done-- but she takes pleasure in the bustle and the decorations.

    First sampling of Joy today, and I'm having a tough time figuring it out. If I smell very close to the skin, I don't like the top notes, but if it wafts, I adore it. Strange that. So much fun sampling. I have 5 classic diors to try for the next week. What's funny is without finding all of you, I would have thought that pretty much all perfume that was available I'd find in my Macy's/Sephora/etc. Now I'm grumbling about how limited my local selection is and pretty much everything I'm trying is coming from afar. Miss Dior, Diorling, Dioressence, Diorella and Diorisimo ... all scents I can't wait to try that I knew nothing about last year.

    Happy yesterday-birthday to Mike Perez...

    I'm kinda sniffly today so I reached for my ultimate comforter, Mitsuoko (EDT I think)... and may be headed for the bedroom for an afternoon nap in lieu of doing housework. I feel like snuggling down instead of going out in the nice weather today and raking leaves.

    Managed to pick up a bottle of this beauty in Bruges this weekend. (Why they don't sell it in the UK beats me).

    I went shopping, hoping A Portrait of a Lady was in, but no.... SO got spritzed with a bunch of scents.... Byredo M/Mink (which I'm also considering a buy) on one wrist, Byredo Oud Immortel on another. On the back of my hand SL Cuir Mauresque, which is nice several hours later! From Barneys went to Saks.... got a VERY hard sell for Clive Christian, and have the three men's fragrances sprayed on the rest of my arms. Not that impressed with any of them.

    Anyway, SotD is a mishmash. Maybe I should take a shower.

    First off, hooray for the new server...Thank you Grant.

    Happy Belated Birthday Mike!!!!!!!

    Today I am wearing a mix of things, I started out with Fille d'Ève by Nina Ricci, which I adore. Then I proceeded to spritz on some scents I ended up adding to my sales thread; Terracotta Voile d'Ete, Meteorites, Zut, Tiare, etc...
    So now I smell cheap and tawdry, from the overwhelming mixture.

    Tonight I will reapply Fille d'Ève extrait, from the fabulous Lalique cristal apple bottle, which will be heavenly.

    Be well all my yummy smelling compatriots.

    I went to see Bilal perform live at The Black Cat in DC tonight. I decided to wear So In Love by VS, my favorite funky rose. My friend, who doesn't like the smell of roses, told me I smelled good. She said she usually doesn't like the smell of roses, but she like that perfume. I was smelling good though lol. I keep getting the best whiffs all during the show. I'm so glad they aren't allowed to smoke in the clubs in this area anymore. Lovely night indeed.
