    Default SotD Wednesday 1 October 2008

    Good morning!

    Unpleasant weather so I am going to make myself a cappuccino with a large slice of abricot pie. Baked at four in the morning

    Comfortable scent: Fendi's Theorema. Hmm, goes perfect with the sweet smell of those abricots......

    A great Wednesday to you all.

    I've caught the first cold of the season. I feel miserable but have to go to work. Feminite du bois for comfort.

    Can I come over for some of that delicious abricot pie, R? I'm sure it tastes even better with this dreadful autumn weather.

    I can tell it's time for elevenses by the way my stomach just growled at the thought of apricot pie!
    Still in the midst of the Big Clean before handing our old flat back to the rental company - they're sticklers here in Switzerland, so I'm being extra-paranoid and have gone through litres of Cillit Bang (Bang! Und der schmutz ist weg!) and Barkeeper's Friend ensuring everything is sparkling. After one last wipe down with my chamois leather, the place will be fit for Howard Hughes on a picky day.

    I'm in Jil Sander Sun and it works very well in this crisp, blustery autumn weather that blew the clothes off my washing line this morning. (Note to self - find where the pegs went during the house move...)

    Have a good day all

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Looks like the apricot pie worked miracles on the weather - there's some sun peeking out from under the torrential rain.
    Bvlgari's Eau Parfumée Au Thé Rouge will have to substitute pies for me, and it does in fact invoke scrumptious desserts more than anything.

    Loewe pour Homme


    I like it but it doesn't stand out for me. I think anything after yesterday's Lyric would have suffered the same fate. That one just got better as the day went on.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Oh dear! A cold.One of the drawbacks of Fall....good excuse for hot toddies!! Sending healing energy, dear Alba.

    Hmmnnn. Apricots. Couldn't decide what to wear and that's OBVIOUSLY the sign from the Universe - so CSP Vanille Abricot.

    At first I get more V than A...but she quickly settles down. It'll be in the eighties again today (Fall doesn't really arrive here until the end of this Month or early November) so I'm up for tropical embraces!!

    tdi picked Silver Factory for me today.

    It is such a complex incense fragrance on my skin. I've been craving incense all summer & the desire to wear this family of fragrances has yet to abate. Some have said that this is just an expensive version of CDG's incense. Certainly there are similaritites but SF is much more complex, imo.

    SF is the fragrance version of the Three Faces of Eve. There's a smoky violet cigarette phase, an incense phase & a soft ambery floral phase.

    Here's the notes: Incense, wood resin, amber, jasmine, iris and violet

    Mauboussin here for me today, significantly cooler in the morning. I can wear it in any weather though and have three different size bottles. Thanks to Miss Q. I now have a mini for travels!

    Would not mind a large slice of that apricot pie with some freshly ground nutmeg sprinkled on top.

    Poor Alba, chicken soup will make you feel better! I wonder if they have it as a scent, l'eau de chicken soup. LOL

    Baking at 4am? I'm doubly impressed.


    Feeling some boozy warmth in my Spiriteuse Double Vanille.

    Have a good day everyone!

    It's sunny here in Virginia. Rain is predicted, though. We've had a lot of rain lately, but we needed the water so it's a good thing. Now I just have to attack the weeds and do some fall gardening.

    I'm scent twins with Paula today in Ava Luxe's Love's True Bluish Light - that was earlier this morning, and now I have Serge Lutens' Sarrasins on my wrists. Doing the Basenotes salute with that one.

    Enjoy the day.
