MV3 again today.
Thread: SotD Monday 22 September
Starting the week with ELdO Antihéros, a lovely lavender scent I've been wearing since Saturday night.
Have a marvy Monday, all!

MV3 again today.
Happy Monday everyone! Today I am wearing Guerlain Habit Rouge EDC.

Notes : patchouli, Mysore sandalwood, benzoin, citrus/hesperides, cinnamon, amber, musk, vanilla, honey
On application has a very calming effect on me, the patchouli and the sandalwood coming together in a slightly heady harmony. Not sweet at all, plentifully meditative and superiorly full bodied as all PG fragrances are with terrific lasting...we're talking 8+ hours with just 2 medium sprays. While it manages to smell sufficiently complex to my nose, I do not find it "sexy" or "exotic" however. It's simply "down to earth" and stays that way on my skin.
PVC and Leather. A Chain and a feather
L'Occitane EAU DES BAUX and two sprays of GUCCI POUR HOMME
Have a good week!

PASSION BOISÉE, Frapin & Cie
Hello fabulous smelling folks - with javagreen smelling particularly good
I'm wearing the same scent as yesterday - it rarely happens, indeed!
Calé Fragranze d'Autore
Can't stop sniffing myself ... takes my mind off Mondayitis
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
Up early for work! Today I am wearing Jo Malone Blue Agave and Cacao. Have a great day everyone!
Keiko Mecheri Loukhoum - I'm finding I have a penchant for smokey, incensy vanillas/gourmands when it's cold out. Must investigate.
Fragonard Grain de Soleil
Notes: rose, iris, jasmine, cinnamon, amber, vanilla, incense
Have a good day, all.
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
D'Humeur Massacrante by L´Artisan Parfumeur, picked out for my SotD by Taolady.
It´s a very unusual scent because of it strong peppery feeling, there is a bit of smoke but not much nor do I detect any other notes (vanilla) that would soften it up. It´s not as warm and spicey as Arabie, but it´s a clear waft of peppers. Maybe peppers in the springtime so the air is crisp and filled with peppers.
It´s very strange and I don´t wear this often because it feels a little misplaced, it´s not very strong luckily and has an airy quality to it which makes it more wearable.
It doesn´t really change my mood, then again it´s monday morning not much can change my mood on a monday morning. I don´t feel aggressive or angry or anything red/mean. I´m not more awake either.
What is funny is that you can clearly feel it is part of a set, this airy and crips quality also returns in some of the other humeurs and the smokeyness is a very subdued smokeness of the d´humeur rien ( i think it was, i traded it away)the heavy incense smokey one.
Once I have glass sampler vials again I´ll let you all know so more people can sample it from here
But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
Good morning, all!
I am wearing Infusion d'Iris
for a second day, and I am enjoying it very much, even more now in the autumn weather than in the summer.
I'm wearing Bond Coney Island today.
I've trademarked the color bleu
Hi, everyone! Back from the hinterlands of no internet access and dashing (again) off to work fairly early in the gorgeous Amouage Jubilation XXV. This is stunningly gorgeous. The men's version smells much, much better on me than the feminine "25," although I recognize both as beautifully done fragrances.
Notes (from Luckyscent): Frankincense, labdanum ciste, coriander, davana, blackberry, orange, gaicwood, rose, honey, bay, orchid, cinnamon, clove, celery seed, opoponox, patchouli, myrrh, musk, moss, atlas cedarwood, ambergris, oud, immortelle.

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 Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Morning! I'm on the run today - off to substitute teach again, this time I'm a high school English teacher. Rather fun, getting to try on all these different hats.
My SotD is the same one I wore to bed last night:
Bvlgari Eau Parfumee Au The Rouge
Today is the first day of Fall. It's the equinox. The seasons are turning. The birds sound a little sad this morning.
Have a good one!

As much as I hate to admit it, it is the first day of Fall.
For this first day of fall I am in:
Lalique Encre Noir
This is a lovely deep vetiver scent with some wonderful off-beat notes to it. The woody base is funked up with musk and a joy to sniff.
Have a great Monday everyone.

I'm wearing Grand Amour by Annick Goutal.
On the assumption that I would be sharing an office today with someone who didn't feel well, I left home without applying perfume. There was a change of plan when I arrived at work, so I applied the best I could find in my bag today - I'm not carrying my usual mobile stash. I would have changed from Goutals, as I've worn them for days on end. I've loved them all, of course, but there are so many other beauties to choose from, so I felt like a change. However, here am I again in Grand Amour and loving every unplanned whiff of it.

For Autumnal Equinox today
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
Azzarp pourr Homme as SotD. Made for a man yet strong enough for a woman.

A healthy and peaceful equinox day to my many lovely BN companions.
F I N A L L Y ... I'm samping Nou, courtesy of the courteous Taolady
I wanted to wear this on a day I wasn't running around and distracted.
The top notes are pleasantly soapy. Will update as the scent progresses.
Not a lot of activity to report. Soap changed to mildly floral. Clearly nothing offensive in NOU, but entirely ho-hum. When it was wet from the open vial, I got a sense of fresh rose, but that never manifested upon application.

SL Louve today.
Getting LOTS more cherries off of this on this wearing. Reminds me a bit of the Cherry NyQuil I've been swilling the past few days.
Thankfully - it's not setting me off. My nose is still pretty wonky from the cold.
Hope all is well today.
