Thread: SotD Wednesday 24 September
It is a windy and drizzly Wednesday over here!
Started off with Cartier Le Baiser Du Dragon and changed to The Different Company Jasmin de Nuit after lunch.
Juliette has a Gun landed in Hong Kong. It reminds me of Agent Provocateur, Lovely and Narciso Rodriguez (just to name a few). The price is approximately 20% more than what I saw from the US website. I probably don't need another bottle of those, so money saved. Yay!

TBS No Debate. Still a little bummed it's long since discontinued.
I'm in lovely Chergui, though not wearing it well today. I usually have a problem with dominant cedar notes and this is no exception. I hope it will warm and mellow on my skin as the morning wears on, but for now it is just a tad too sickly.

Starting off the day in Caroin's Or et Noir-
Rosy and rich.
Hope Neil and David did well in NYC last night !
This am is the press... how STRESSFUL !!!
Louve, I don´t know why this one isn´t getting that much love here on basenotes. I find it a very understated and subtle perfume. I get a good blast of cherries and then the smoothe feeling of almonds. It might sound like another fruity number that is so popular outside of the niche perfume world but I think it´s not fruity in that way.
It´s reminds me more of a softer Datura Noir with a hint of cherry liquor maybe.
But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
Fraternal scent twins with Aboodchy,
Hermes Hermessence Ambre Narguile for me as well today (minus the Tom Ford )
Have a lovely day, everyone!

"Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

Hello all you gorgeous-smelling ones!
Today (yet another) big meeting at work, plus a possible press pitch, so I need to smell great and capable.
Think I've managed that with Costes.
Costes notes (from Luckyscent): Lavender, bay-tree, coriander, white pepper, rose, incense, woods and light musc .
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

Jean Patou 1000, and I'm off to work.
Have a nice rest of the week, everyone.
Mine has been bad. I don't know what happened, but this week everyone--students, family, everyone--is positively bitchy. And I've been busy writing tests (at home for no pay) and having to grit my teeth through all their selfishness. Good thing I'm feeling relatively calm. Mabye my biorhythms are 180 degrees out-of-phase with everyone else's. I hope to literally cancel out their vibes.
