Thread: SotD Saturday August 2nd, 2008
Wakey wakey BN Family!
Tis Aquatic/Fresh Sniff and Speak Day
I'm testing Virgin Island Water properly for the first time (thanks Ubu!), testing Eau des Merveilles for the 3rd/4th time (still love it as much as I did the first time! Methinks sample needs replacing with a FB soon ) and wearing a bit of Dune.
I'm not too sure whether Dune counts as an aquatic as it seems too strong but I don't care! In the Virgin Island Water I'm just getting a lot of orange at the moment and it's sticking very close to the skin.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Sampling Incense Rosé and Incense Extrême by Andy Tauer
Sampling SL Five o´clock au Gingembre before shower. Smells like a ginger biscuit added vodka and myrrh.
Will wear Tommy Girl post shower.
Wearing Avon Rare Sapphires and hoping the weather will pick up.
Going to the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham today, as we have
a big wedding Anniversary coming up in two weeks time!! (Silver)
Mitsouko (EDT), a little sharper than the parfum but therefore better suited for hot days.

Got a little bit of work done today, and also got to have a nice chat on the phone to mum. Almost ashamed to admit it but what I wore today... Midnight Fantasy. Actually, I find this fragrance really enjoyable, especially on the unusually sunny day we had today!
Kewart, baby !
It's our silver, too-
End of the month ! Congrats, darlin ' !
Aquatic/ marine !
Me NO likey !
EdM or Fleurs de Sel, I guess...
I'd rather wear Liz Zorn's Yin Hao, or Serena's new Rosa de la Luz....
[ I'm LOUSY at pouting- never had much practice, LOL]
Have a good day, dear ones !
Good morning everybody. Completely forgot about S'n'S ,so I'm in Angel at the moment. If I hadn't forgotten I would have worn Elixir de Merveilles,I think.Hope you all have a great day

Satellite Ipanema -- watery vanilla lasting just a few fabolous hours.
Will probably be EL Emerald Dream after that -- a sharp fruity floral drying to humid tropical paradise with a muscular cabana boy in mind.
Have a nice weekend!
Be sure to post in the S'n'S thread if you're wearing anything fresh or aquatic today so, in the future, others can reference these threads to get ideas for each category.
The Different Company's Sel de Vetiver for me. Will write about it in other thread.

Hello everyone. Fresh/aquatic frags aren't my thing so I'm recusing myself in Serge Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan today.
Have a great day, all.

Bulgari pour Homme Extreme as SotD. Low 90s F for us today even with a day of thunderstorms looming.
we have seen the enemy...and he is us.-Pogo
Currently wearing Acqua di Gio pour Homme.
Because dangit - it's good to broaden one's horizons.
Once I get a chance to shower, I'll be trying Lostmarch Iroaz.
This has aquatic notes and from preliminary sniff (the sample broke and was just barely being held together when I received it this week), it looks like this may be more up my alley.

Wearing Aqua Motu for the S'n'S, this was a blind purchase, and I still can't bring myself to like it. It smells synthetic. The fresh / aqua not is not as prominent as Issey Miyake or Cool Water. It smells flat to me.
I plan to wear something more exciting after shower... erm... perhaps Virgin Island Water?
Today is my lucky day ~ I'm wearing my new frag, which was introduced to me by our very own Tinker! It is Organza Milliseme 2005. It's basically all the goodness of Givenchy's original Organza with the addition of specially harvested (!?!?!) JASMINE!!!!!!! God I love this stuff!!! You know, I'm a sucker for jasmine, and Givenchy puts forth some of my most fave scents, I'm in heaven! (even though my dryer conked out yesterday...I'm still happy as a lark!) Have a fantastic weekend everybody!
For SnS I'm wearing l'Eau d'Issey, the only aquatic scent I could find among my samples. All I can say is...oh dear! lol!
Today, for SotD and SnS, I will be wearing:
Notes: Brazilian orange, caipirinha limon, mandarin, tagette, green leaf, rosewood, gaiac wood, elemi, amber, musk, coconut (from Lucky Scent)
The Guide gives this 2 stars and calls it a "woody citrus". To my nose, it smells clean, fresh and tropical. Later it dries down to a delicate woody musk scent. It is a light summer fragrance, imo, possibly a good beach scent. I don't mind the two-sided quality (going from fresh to woody), because it reminds me of the way some colognes develop. Once the lighter citrus and fresh notes are gone, a musk, fougere, etc., takes it the rest of the way.
Clarins par Amour for me today )
Today I'm in Black Cashmere by Donna Karan - very incense-y
For today's SnS, I'll go all aquatic with Hermes Eau des Merveilles...Ambergris, salt, beach wood and oranges.
Roma EDT for me today. In exactly 1 month my baby will climb aboard the school bus for her first day of kindegarten eek!
Sorry, not only do I not own any aquatics, but, truth be told, I don't want any.
Paula, I am with you today in Black Cashmere. I craved the spice today.
With nods to the S'nS I'm wearing a much loved fragrance, Antonia Flowers Sogni Del Mare even though I'm craving Andy Tauers's Incense Rose. I'll wear IR later.

My perfume dealer is on vacation!!!!?? I'm horrified because she had said she would get in the new order of L' Artisans.
So I wandered into the other store sampling more Acqua di parma, and I tried mirto one and another one tha aren't on the basenotes directory. They are from the Blu line. The Mirto is really strong and and then it becomes a little more smokey. Rather nice but I wouldn't say ver feminine. The other one I tried is listed in the directory and I had tried it before, It's nice and good but just not good enough for me at the moment.
The third I dont remember the name from ( damn italien) and its an aquatic/citrus one so I cant go on description of others alone really..it could be the orange one but then there was another orange one that smelled like spanish fanta to me so they could have meant that. Next tinme I'll write down the names on each arm ( I used my bf's arms too)
DOH! I forgot about SnS again! I'm wearing something completely different than fresh/aquatic - Tom Ford Moss Breches.
If I'd remembered SnS I'd be wearing Hermes Un Jardin Apres la Mousson.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend.
