    Default SotD Saturday 4th of October 2008

    Well. If I had Ambre Sultan, I'd wear that for S&S Saturday, but I have myself to blame for getting side-tracked when I went out to buy it this summer (that was my Harrods trip where I ended up sampling a zillion scents and buying two, neither of which was AS - it was too hot and I was seduced by fresh, green and gingery scents).

    So I'm in Byzance by Rochas again. It's a little scary how much I suddenly crave this scent (see yesterday's SotD), so I'm just going to go with it and wear it again.

    Have a happy Saturday, everyone!

    SnS day.
    I'm at the hospital, this w/e-
    But Geisha Noire it is....

    I feel 'annointed' in this one; I love so many other ambers- Aki, AS, Voile D'Ambre, Ambra , Ambra Aurea, Fior D'Ambra, AR....

    Have a great day !

    How did that happen? Completely missed the S'n'S announcement. As it is, no amber for me: I'm going on a little trip to sample some choice fragrances. Biehl's Parfumkunstwerke, to be precise.
    I'm suffering from instant class anxiousness, since the shop is located in a very high class district - SA's there can be snooty. We'll hope for the best, though. I'll report back!

    Veuve Amiot, just relax and have fun sampling. And don't waste another thought on any potentially snooty SAs. Just dispatch any snoots with a dismissive wave and a stink eye Enjoy yourself!

    Chant d'Aromes today, from a small decant, it's beautiful.

    veuve amiot, I am sympathetic, as I am trying to talk myself into going to the Bergdorf Goodman's Guerlain boutique in nyc. This is so easy for me to get to, but I am more of a downtown girl
    ahhh... but all those Guerlain's, waiting to be sampled...

    For Amber SnS I started the day in Profumum

    Fiore d'Ambra

    Then, at midday, I was tempted by a sample of Montale Black Aoud, which I am also wearing. Black Aoud is growing on me

    Gheheheh, ok, thanks (I always get a giggle out of Per Una - I do have some of their clothes too, by the way - "peruna" means "potato" in Finnish). Also: nothing wrong with pyjamas at lunchtime (why does that sound like the battle cry of some obscure group: "It'll be pyjamas at lunchtime!"). It is a Saturday after all. Enjoy it while you can!

    I've decided that actually, I am kind of participating in S&S Saturday, given that Byzance becomes so ambery on me so quickly (the big soap mercifully passes in minutes and somehow I skip the part where this is supposed to chiefly be a floral oriental; just goes woody, vanillic, soft, musky with a hint of a floral idea in the somewhere).

    V.v. envious of your lovely Ambre Sultan though. And I doubt I'll even manage to buy it next; I've got my eye on Datura Noir.

    Nukapai: Many thanks for the pajama explanation. That's so cute!!

    And you ladies intimidated by snotty SA's....remember - YOU pay THEIR salary (or not) and most of the poor creatures share digs with three or four other upwardly mobile "high class" wannabes. There may be the exception like Chaya, who purveys frags out of love (among other things) and you have read how she treats perfumistas like us...but she is one in a billion.)

    As reported on the SnS: My bug being still in residence (and many thanks for all your kind emanations!) I was a bit concerned I might not be able to fully appreciate the divine

    I get all kinds Cossack-y vibes from this (apologies to any Russian friends with bad memories)

    The pervasiveness of Saddle leather, steaming samovars, in the officers' quarters- shots of vodka amid swirling ciggie smoke.... and gleaming amber under all....OH BOY!! So what if it's going to 85 F....I'm ready!

    Spritzed my new bottle of Ambre Sultan for S'n'S. The opening is a bit medicinal, but definately worth waiting for the drydown. Last more than 10 hours on my skin, which normally doesn't hold anything for more than 3-4 hours.

    Thanks to the ever-lovely Tao, I am also in Ambre Russe. And it's as good as she says! Plus, perfect for a crisp autumnal day that finds me sporting corduroy and flannel (almost as good as pyjamas).
    Interestingly, after a fleeting whiff of saddle leather today the tobacco leapt forward, but now it has mellowed into a beautiful dry but rich amber tobacco. May I suggest that on a gentlemen this would be downright ravishable? (Fougere Bengal is dynamite too.)

    And here's a question: why do we seem to like tobacco in fragrances so much now? Do you think it's because it's more of a rarity since smoking bans came in? One to ponder.
    Hope you're all having a lovely day. Be well, Tommi Tao.

    Taolady I hope you can chase those bugs away, soon.

    Tough choices for me today as I love my amber.
    for me though it is a recent acquisition that comes to mind when I think amber and thats:

    Montale Blue Amber

    I'll speak more about this in the SnS thread.

    Have a great Saturday everyone.
