    Default SotD Thursday 9th of October

    Happy belated birthday xdattax! Man I'm so behind with the birthdays! Hope you had a wonderful, fragrant day.

    Lizzie J, I found Vraie Blonde to be a scrubber too. Couldn't get it off fast enough!

    Anyway, today I'm in Gucci Envy.

    Have a great day everyone, hugs to the sick and stressed out. And everyone else of course!

    Today's my citrus day, and the sunny bright weather seems to agree:

    I'll just post on the one with the most posts.

    Too early here to think anyway.

    Possets - Missouri today. A top of an orange creamsicle (natural orange, not the artificial stuff) with a hint of orange blossom. Morphs into a rose in the heart. Turns ambery on the dry down.

    The official notes and my impressions are completely unrelated and from the comments on the Possets board, I'm getting something a bit different than most.

    A significantly more analytical scent than Possets usual fare - lots of complexity here.

    Twolf's work of art.

    There is even more embroidery on the right hand side of the pouch. To give an impression of the size: there is a 100 ml. bottle of AG Eau d'Hadrien
    inside on the second picture.

    So, leaving the lavender fragrances behind me, I am now following my Brotha in
    Eau d'Hadrien
    On a scarf, again

    Congratulations dear G, exactly 3000 posts at this moment!

    A La Nuit, and plenty of it.

    Edit since I´m more awake.
    I love A La Nuitm, this is the first time I use it because the bottle arrived. I had a small sample and as soon as I smelled it I knew I needed a full bottle and I´m so happy with it. It even turns the SO into a perfume critic explaining how it smells wet, with a solid base and the exotic is sprinkeld on so it isn´t overpowering. And I agree, it´s not overpowering but it has a presence, it´s light but not fleeting. For me ..I love it and when I sampled it was the first time I ever smelled something like it.

    Twold, how long does it take you to make that? Are you going Etsy?

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

    Good grief but Twolf is insanely talented. I am so impressed by that embroidery.

    In Madame Rochas today because I'd forgotten to spritz while getting dressed and that's the bottle that's in the kitchen cupboard. Is that a snapshot of a life or what?

    Have a good day all

    Many topics today.
    First Belated Happy Birthday to xdattax I hope it was an awesome day.
    Second, twolf what an amazing gift the work and the love that goes into something like that is priceless.
    Third, Lady R isn't this the greatest community? To find something like that in the mail out of the blue?
    Fourth, Ken the loss of our four-legged companions is always a blow. I hope your companion goes easily. My thoughts are with you.
    Fifth, I am actually wearing a scent today:

    Zino Davidoff

    It is loud over the top like the amps for Spinal Tap it goes to 11. It also perfectly fits my mood today as I think its going to be a day I have to go to 11 at work.
    Have a great day everyone.

    Riannon, how nice! Lovely work by Twolf.

    Happy Belated Birthday to Xdattax! I'm sorry we missed it...but here's to you and hope it was a good one! I believe in celebrating the 12 Days of Birthdays like the 12 Days of Christmas.

    So glad it fits without giving you fits, Ms.R. Thanks for your kind words, all! The pattern is an AboutUs freebie by Sandi Marshall, who digitized it from the early 20th century filet (perhaps it used to be a curtain/ a table scarf), and Ms.R said she did not mind vines. Originally I planned to stitch it in gold on the burgundy colored linen, but the fabric was so difficult to work with which would inevitably result in the sloppy finish. We did not want any sloppiness. There were no dragon patterns in the needlework store that I frequent, all other Internet freebies were either too long or too colorful (gorgeous Theresa Wentzler) or positioned on the corner (Tante's Zolden) or too cutesy (many others) or too big (a few others). I do not have PayPal and I normally do not sell as I consider stitching just a skill, not art: in to the right, out to the left, all about it. However, I always look into the new ideas and if you have some, please PM me. It was my first bottle pouch although there were two pouches (one for odds and ends, and another one for storing cotton balls) before, this one "sits" on a round base reenforced by a piece of plastic. Beads were hard to find too -- I had to cut apart a little hair barette to get them. The stitching took about 12 hours, the finishing took about two and a half. Every single minute put into it turned out to be pure joy!
