    I'm going to the hospital for a neck x-ray and don't want to wear anything overpowering - or any of my favourites either (smell associations with hospitals ruin favourite perfumes, you know). Sooooo, I'm going for the safe, fresh & soapy/shower gel-y Lacoste pour femme.

    SotD for me is Montale's Sunset Flowers. It's like a cocktail and makes me feel "pretty, witty and gay"!

    Aqua Allegoria Flora Nerolia. I relish the relaxing, uplifting aura
    of this wonderful scent - petitgrain, neroli, jasmine, orange blossom
    and incense. This is one of Jean-Paul Guerlain's finest and I love it
    dearly.

    Happy son's birthday to Alba (who will smell fantastic whichever of her choices she goes with!), and Nukapai, hope the x-ray is as easy as possible and without nasty smell associations!

    Everyone's smelling so good today...

    Today is my last day of work at my long-held (13 years!) place of employment, and I am going to smell gorgeous and calm my jittery nerves in Serge Lutens Encens et Lavande.

    I'm taking two weeks off prior to starting the new job, and will likely be a sporadic poster these next few days. Must remember deep breathing...

    I'm on my way to a doctor's appointment. It has taken me over three months to get in to see this rheumatologist, and I will admit to you guys that I'm feeling a bit nervous. I'm wearing my old friend, Angel.

    My appointment with the osteopath yesterday
    was quite uneventful, but I suppose that's how
    it was supposed to go? Not sure. Hope it helps!

    Another more or less sleepless night, and

    ComDiva - Wow! This has been a very eventful week! I hope they take you out someplace nice for the going away lunch.

    A gorgeous late-summer day here in the mid 80s and low humidity. Perfect weather for my friends from PA who will be spending the weekend.

    Congrats to the Birthday Boy and special huzzahs and frantic waves to The Diva on her last day of servitude. Hope everyone's aches and pains are relieved - healing energy flowing to you all.

    For me - an all-time fave...the shimmery.....

    ...rates five *s in The Guide and ten from me. According to Turin, Maurice Roucel (of whom I am a GREAT fan) was "uncharacteristically positive" about this "kaleidoscopic floral"...totally luscious.

    Mira Bai--old friend is really scratching my itch today. Ahhhhhh.

    Be well, my fragrant electronic family. Nukapai, nothing serious, I hope? Shades, Agent, I'd heal you with my touch if those god-like powers I requested would just come through.

    Can you imagine how lucky ComDiva's future new co-workers are gonna be to have her in their midst? Envy! (BTW, still snickering inappropriately at your telling of the flying dog story.)

    TGIF! I can't decide on a SotD yet. We're going to close on our house today, and moving in over the weekend. I won't have internet service again until Sunday evening (Verizon FiOS, yay!). So, see you then!

    I hope everybody has a wonderfully fragrance day and weekend!

    Oops forgot to post yesters. Happy belated anniversary Tigrushka!

    I tested Rasa Extreme yesterday. Whooooa, no likey! Scary! Somehow it's weirdly like defecation and roses. Although I think of it as education for my nose - I've been wondering what civet smells like exactly.

    So I scrubbed it off and applied L'Occitane Ambre.

    Today I took a break from sampling and wore Cinema Festival d'Ete for uni in the morning and then went to the cinema (to see The Strangers) in the early afternoon. The movie kinda creeped me out

    Good luck with the doctor Shadesofbleu!! I'm sure you will be fine, plus you smell gorgeous! *Sending healing vibes to Nukapai (and anyone else who may need them!)*

    So I made my top 4 list of perfumes, I want to get 2-3 bottles ( and I say I but someone else is going to the States and he was kindly asked by me to go to that and that shop on that street and get 2 or 3 of this list) and many of them are SL bottles. But on pictures it looks like the bottles do not have a spray.

    Do any of you ladies know if the Sl bottles come with a spray? If not what are good ways to apply? Decant into a spray bottle maybe?

    Surprisingly Datura Noir made it on the list, I´m thinking I got a atomisers that contained some other perfume still so that the first application was horrible but the others were better.
