    Default SotD - Friday, July 25

    Couldn't sleep so came downstairs to see what everybody was up to (one of the many pleasures of BN is that it's global and there's always somebody up somewhere)

    I almost always sleep in Montale's Sweet Oriental Dream - so to refresh, and counteract - I'm headed for

    Fougere Bengale by Parfum d'Empire
    ...from the sublime to the sublimer!!

    Can some kind moderator please change that "F" to a "D"??

    Later: Oooooh. Thankyew

    Goodmorning/goodnight Lady Tao Now, to bed with you!

    For me a bright start of the day and the irresistable smell of an English breakfast, followed by something else I can't resist:

    Enlèvement au Sérail

    Seriously addicted at the moment.

    Enjoy your Friday!

    Un Jardin apres la Monsoon. Even though Chandler Burr gives it just 1 star, I find it quite addictive. It's much better worn than what you just get sniffing your wrist.
    Anyway, it's already Friday! Have a nice day, everyone.

    It's evening now for me here. It's been a cool drizzly day and I've had on 'Frilly Underpinnings' from Arcana to keep me company. It's a perfume oil so just a close-to-the-skin nuzzle of musk, bourbon vanilla and amber with an occasional sniff of pepper.

    Ms. Riannon - While I wore it yesterday, something about it reminded me of Bond No. 9's Chinatown. I think in the heart they both share that fascinating creamy spicy peachy note. The Chinatown, overall, is creamier and fruitier. The MDCI seems drier and woodier.

    Unfortunately, there are some notes in Enlevement au Serail that went seriously wonky on me. I'm going to try it again when it gets cooler. I have a feeling it may be the heat.

    Today - Comme des Garcons from the lovely Ms. Coconut.

    Coconut - is this the original Comme des Garcons? I didn't see any other markings on the vial. This is good stuff - and this incense freak is loving it!!!!

    Happy Friday, all!

    Chaya and SMM, I am super jealous of your outing (in a good way!) - I anticipate you are going to have a FABULOUS time in each other's company, and completely terrorize the SAs. Please do report back on the board!

    Off to a work retreat (even though I'm on borrowed time there, I am glad to still be included!), then DH and I are off to NYC for a long weekend -- Our present to each other for our 20th anniversary. I will likely be off-line for a few days, but will report back! We have absolutely no fixed plans, just wander and come up with things to do on the spur of the moment.

    Today I'm wearing my very very favorite of the Parfums MDCI line: Parfum MDCI Invasion Barbare. By extremely talented perfumer Stephanie Bakouche (I sang her praises to Frederic Malle when he was at Barneys in Boston last fall... Told him he should turn HER loose in his perfume studios and see what masterpiece she comes up with!)

    Notes: Grapefruit, bergamot, violet leaves, white thyme, cardamom, lavender, ginger, cedarwood, vanilla and musk.

    My SoTE will be L'Uomo Trussardi, which always makes me think of Scentemental, from whom I got this gorgeous (and sadly discontinued) juice. Hope you're doing well, Scentemental, wherever you are.

    Top Notes: Mandarin, Bergamot, Lavender, Tomato Leaves.
    Middle Notes: Cedar, Spicy notes, Floral notes, Geranium.
    Base Notes: Amber, Woods, Sandalwood, Okumal, Patchouli, Vanilla, Tobacco Leaf.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin...

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Hi all!

    I´m wearing the lovely, rich Sacrebleu (Patricia de Nicolai) today. We are enjoying some warm & sunny days here in the south right now; perfect for all the music festivals daughter and friends are visiting.
    Alice Cooper played at the Norwegian Rock Festival last weekend, and he was sorry he hadn´t time to test the wonderful golf course we have here.

    Hubs is up in the mountains, fishing (as usual), so my plans for the days is to do what I´m best at - being lazy.

    Have fun Chaya and SMM!!!

    Ms. Sakecat, I am now wearing both Chinatown and Enlèvement au Sérail, looking absolutely ridiculous because I give the 'Basenotes Salute' every five minutes with two arms.
    Creamy, spicy....yes. But sadly: no peachy note for me in Enlèvement. That is all jasmine, spices and wood on me.
    But the more I switched from one wrist to the other, the more I got the impression of Fendi's Theorema. I crossed my wrists and smelled them together....Theorema's stepsister

    I must say that I am surprised that these two fragrances really work for me in summer, but of course it is not terribly hot here at the moment.I promise I will try the MDCI in serious heat. Let's see if I can get those 'wonky' notes.

    Whisperingleaves, I adore your smell! One of my faves, for sure.
    Chaya & SMM ~ look out SA's, here they come! A dynamic duo...we want scoop!
    ComDiva, congratulations to you and your Mr. 20 years ~ Bravo!
    As for me, we (the family) are planning on enjoying the county fair - and topping off this annual event with cheering through the demolition derby! My 9 year old son thinks this is the coolest thing ever. My almost 20 year old daughter thinks it's a hillbilly fest. It's really a bit of both, but it's a howlin' time every year!!! Soooooooooooooo, while I'm pretty sure Dzing would be the most appropriate scent to wear, I'm going with AMARIGE. Why, you ask? Well, I really don't appreciate some of the fair's smells wafting into my air-space...like the B.O., assorted animal odors, overflowing restooms and or port-a-potties, and even the smell of burning oil mixed with hot asphalt....I prefer to be surrounded by a sillage cloud of gorgeous flowery freshness!!! That's why!!!
    So I'm wearing my Givenchy LOUD & PROUD today! Have a fun Friday everybody.

    Oooh Tao, I got to try Fougere Bengal recently and was impressed. You said I would be and I was. You so wiiiiiise! :-)
    I hope I don't offend anyone by saying this but it made me think of sexy gardeners. Tarry string (string dipped in tar), rough leather gloves, greenery... Did you see Sean Bean as Lady Chatterly's lover? Oh my! (Tries to fan herself and pretends to be prim. Fails miserably. Grins filthily.)

    Enough of that. I'm in Iris Poudre today. It's so beautiful and I overlook it most of the time, trying new things.

    Next time I'm in Zurich I'll have to have a smell of the MCDI line. They sound very interesting.

    I'm still househunting and trying to pack up and tidy up our flat before we have people round to see if they want to rent it.

    Have a lovely day all, and a great weekend. Special congratulations to ComDiva - 20 years together is a wonderful achievement. How come no-one mentions the occasional hard work and tongue-biting that romance requires to flourish?

    Ubu - do me favour and shout a 'yee haw' for me at your hillbillyfest. Sounds fantastic!

    Happy friday everyone!

    Went over to a friend's house for morning tea (that extended on till dinner out) with some of the girls. I was so in love with Ava Luxe Milk by the time I went to bed last night that I felt I just HAD to wear it again. Even now... a good 16 hours after application I can still smell it. Now that I've warmed up with some flower tea (out of my new teapot and cup set) and a warm blanket around me, the sweet scent of Milk is really projecting again! Despite my doubts from yesterday, this one is going to the wishlist!!

    Hi Sakecat, please do not feel bad: I have tried Au Serail in different weathers and it still does not work for me. Not very well, I might add. Yesterday I got a raw onion note on top of everything else messy (was it chlorine bleach?) on pretty flowers, would you please elaborate how "wonky" yours was?

    Today I finally figured out why my mostly flower and herb garden is not growing that pretty as last year -- not enough water! Duh! The only herb that grows strong is dill and I do not even pickle.... I need too! I also saw that the neighbor just dumps buckets of water as opposed to my using a watering can -- and did it too. All wearing Trussardi Python while it is still slightly coolish out there. I am sure we will be at or over a 100 F again. Can't wait for the summer to be over with, I had enough.

    Glad you like it, if the juice is dark, then it should be the original. If the juice is transparent, it is most likely my Comme des garcons No 3. (which is a bit woody and rosy and smells like the Voleur de Roses by L'Artisan.

    Bois d'Orage today. The fact that this is supposed to be an "ultimate masculine" and "virile" keeps haunting me. I keep sniffing myself, thinking, "Really? Masculine? Really?" Shrug.
    It's a very, very feel-good scent for me, evocative of many enjoyable hikes. It smells like I'm standing in the middle of a yellow, late summer meadow filled with dried grasses and pollen. Funny, because this name translates to (I think) wet wood.

    Have a great weekend, everyone! I'm going hiking!

    Mothballs and "punk sticks". Punks are commonly used to light fireworks and smell like a combination of rotten fruit, sulphur and wood.

    Imagine being a theatrical pyro expert and wearing Chinatown while lighting explosives on a stage with old curtains stored in mothballs.

    That was Enlevement Au Serail on me after the first 2 hours.

    Trying Le Labo Rose 31 today (thanks, Aiona!). It is a bit spicy for my tastes, but I love how the rose interacts with the spices. The only rose frags I've tried before were too sweet for my tastes (Stella, I'm talking to you). So I'm looking forward to exploring "rose plus" frags.

    Calypso - Marine - hot black sands of Martinique, Euoros with sleek tanned bodies wafting expensive oils. more than a hint of skank over salt.

    TDC - Sel di Vetiver
    - flowery...iris and patchouli with a hint of celery but no vetiver. Thatched huts on a crescent beach of blinding white sand and impossibly aqua water.

    Il Profumo - Aria di Mare - Hibiscus and gardenias and freesia growing right down to the rocky shore - you have to walk thought herby patches to get to the water. Frou frou. Sweet.

    For the wild beach experience - so far Beth Terry is leading the pack.

    Well, folks-
    SMM and I DID NOT HAVE EVEN ONE SNIFF !
    REALLY !!!

    We met, ate wonderful sushi, and chatted for nearly 3 hours straight- we could have talked all day.
    What a lovely, warm, kind man he is.
    Handsome, snuggly, brilliant.
    Dear, dear soul.

    I hope to do it again, some time- or feed him, sniff through my crazy collection.

    ComDiva and DH- weekend in NYC !
    Have a marvellous time !

    After feeling a little dissatisfied with the latest Kenzo samples I have tried, I went back to one of my standards (decant, unfortunately):

    Chanel Eau de Cologne

    For the first time when wearing it today, I noticed a bit of coconut. And not a hint of cinnamon floor wax--what a relief!

    It is a very late post but this was an awesome day.
    Chaya and I met and we talked for three hours over sushi that seemed like 15 minutes.
    We spoke of many things, fools and kings, but nothing better than meeting a new friend.
    She is incorrect that we didn't sniff anything. I sniffed Parfum D'Ida on her and I'm pretty sure she sniffed my SotD
    Yohji Homme
    on me.
    For the day no SA's were harmed in the making of this friendship.
    Next time I'll have to see if I'm man enough for two Chayas.
    If my heart can't take it I will expire with a smile, of that I'm sure.

    SotD was EL Bronze Goddess (getting lots of wear out of this one!)
    SotE is Datura Noir. So darn pretty.

    Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe

    g'night all!

    That was Enlevement Au Serail on me after the first 2 hours.
    And I am missing all these wonderful notes? Including Twolfs 'onion' experience?
    Who said that body chemistry was not relevant?

    SotE was Invasion Barbare also from Parfums MDCI

    Good to hear that SMM and Chaya had a wonderful time together. There will be other days to test the 'smellies'.

    ComDiva and husband, have a great memorable weekend
