    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    I actually smell a weird similarity between Datura Noir and Douce Amère... the three sisters? I can't judge Louve, its overpowering candied marzipan sweetness blocks my nose completely.

    I also found the first 10 odd minutes of Datura Noir and Noix de Tubereuse (Miller Harris) eerily similar.

    I tried this one (again) last night and love how lovely and yet complex the opening was. It doesn't seem to be and innocent scent as the ads suggest. But it stayed with me for only half day.

    We have moved to a little village in the Zurcher Weinland, very pretty and tradtional. Today I was hanging out washing when I heard really loud cowbells (we've got used to the regular cowbells tinkling away in the field across the road), so went to look out of the front window. There was a procession of cows walking down the road to the winter pasture, wearing decorated head-dresses and huge cowbells. It's a traditional thing. Wonderful!

    Going to test out Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere today.

    I really want to wear my new one, but I'm freaking out about dipping into my new bottle of Carnal Flower because of it's cost. I need to get over that. I've just used my samples until now, and am actually terrified of using the first spray out of my too small 50ml bottle. Why couldn't I fall in love with something affordable like Tocade? Geez.

    Purplebird-- Hugs for you! I think some people get cranky during the change of seasons, knowing summer is over and winter approaches.

    Wordbird-- That sounds so charming! How nice to know these traditions continue.

    tdi-- Birthday cake for breakfast! I see room for new traditions too! Anything for cake! I'm pretty klutzy though; might set the bed on fire.

    I'm sampling Guerlain L'instant today (thank you, Twolf!). I have companying arriving in a couple of house, and they will be spending several days with us.

    BPAL Twilight this morning, and just put on some L'Eau d'Hiver - for some reason, Turquoisewater, this one lasts very, very well on me. I've even smelled it post-shower, still on my skin. Personal chemistry is weird!

It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well so fucking what." - Stephen Fry

    Purplebird, hang in there. Big hugs in your direction! I've had a funny day like that too. Odd.

    Still in Juicy Couture today. After my Anais Anais double-take yesterday I just had to give it another go. And yes, now I really am sure; there is a resemblance. Anais Anais is more sour though. JC is very wearable on me - it goes powdery and soapy in the nicest of ways in the end and never sickly.

    Anyway, Oud Girl has made me crave L'instant again. In reality, I have no idea what to wear tomorrow. I'm on a day trip and working in someone else's office tomorrow, so perhaps nothing too powerful. Hmm.

    Busy, busy day today! Hadn't even time to post my SotD, which was ELdO

    Divin'Enfant

    Only apparently innocent, this little beast lasts and lasts and becomes more andmore naughty. I can still smell it going strong 14 hours after application!

    We have moved to a little village in the Zurcher Weinland, very pretty and tradtional. Today I was hanging out washing when I heard really loud cowbells (we've got used to the regular cowbells tinkling away in the field across the road), so went to look out of the front window. There was a procession of cows walking down the road to the winter pasture, wearing decorated head-dresses and huge cowbells. It's a traditional thing. Wonderful!

    Oooohhh! I just ordered some o' that there Madagascar. (TWolf turned me on to it.) Just love it!

    I'm moving in ... that is a wonderful wonderful way of life you are describing!! The pic makes it even better.

    Yves Rocher Iris Noir. Just seeing its name in yesterday's SotD made me crave it.
    Thanks Quarry. Sadly - when I get the flux, it tends to linger. Especially in the nose.

    The only saving grace is that others are suffering with me.

    I figure it's a good opportunity to experiment with "nice scents when you can't smell anything" / "stuff to wear when you are feeling extra perfume-sensitive"

    I'm wearing Patchouli Patch, which I hadn't chosen for months and that now doesn't seem so great... Funny (and irritating) how favs change!

    It was absolutely perfect for today's cool, sunny weather! It made me want to go apple picking desperately

    Wore Bryant Park from my sample. Used a fair amount of it today, instead of the stingy little amount I usually apply from samples, and was impressed this time around. Bryant Park isn't loud or glitzy. It is sweet, pretty and more natural smelling today for some reason. It might have to go back onto my wish list until I find a decent cheaper alternative or just give in and buy it!

    Purplebird, hang in there, and as my father used to say, "Don't let the b-stards grind ya down."

    Wordbird, what a delightful story and photo.

    Happy birthday to Emily, the lucky recipient of cake for breakfast!

    Today's frags: White Jasmine & Mint (SotD), Bal a Versailles (SotE)

    Yesterday was crazy fragrance day. I was up in LA doing several trainings. Since I was "only" about 20 miles from Barney's NY and the Scent Bar, of course I had to make a "frolic and detour."

    The Barney's SA was annoying--she stuck to me like glue, and she didn't want me to try Carnal Flower, saying she didn't like it. (Needless to say, I sprayed it anyways.)

    I tried Chergui, Daim Blond, Carnal Flower, Tauer Rose Insense, Montale Aoud Damascus, and Amouage Jubilation XXV (liked the men's top notes better). Plus a couple other frags that I can't remember (but that's O.K., they didn't work on me).

    It was a surfeit of great frags, so it was hard to concentrate on any one, but here are a few quick descriptions.

    Daim Blond - I could barely smell it. Either I'm mostly anosmic to it, or it just was overcome by everything else.

    Chergui - the stand out. Loved it except for when the animalic became HUGE on and off during the drydown. (And here I was thinking I might be anosmic to animalic notes!) I definitely want to try it again when I can focus on it alone.

    Aoud Damascus - way too sticky-sweet and girly-pink rose. I almost had to scrub it.

    Tauer Rose Insense - not much rose, lots of incense. I sprayed it on, and I suspect this may be a dabber. However, I think I prefer L'Air du Desert Marocain.

    Carnal Flower - I'd like to try this again as well. Loved the camphorish top notes, but it actually seemed rather delicate and uncarnal the rest of the way, sort of "sinking" into my skin.

    Jubilation XXV - by this time, I was so overwhelmed, all I could think of was, "Hmmmm, I think that smells good." Luckily, the woman working at Scent Bar gave me a sample.
