    Default 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!
    Currently wearing: Le Gardénia by Isabey

    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.

    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.

    Bless Serena at Ava Luxe for her creativity with scents.

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."

    Nose still wonky - so I'm still grabbing my predictable-behaving scents.

    Today - CdG Avignon. It's been a long time since I've worn this one.

    Wearing Datura Noir as SotE and just noticed you're right. I smell the similarities now! Thankfully, Datura Noir hasn't got too much almond/cherry like Louve - a few people told me I would love it but nope, it turned to cherry cough medicine on my skin!

    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

    Mercy, this lurg has really been dogging you, kitty. I hope that day that so often follows illness arrives for you soon--that IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE WELL day.

    Yves Rocher Iris Noir. Just seeing its name in yesterday's SotD made me crave it.

    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.
