    Default SotD Wednesday 22 October-08

    Good morning everybody. Today seems to be a whole lot better than yesterday even though it's still insanely early! I'm off to work and it' still dark! i'm in the gorgeous Egoiste.Unfortunately I think this scent will be the closest I ever get to Bois des iles : / Well, a nice scent on its own terms non the less! Hope you all have a great day!

    I even this out a little by wearing The Body Shop Satsuma Body Lotion underneath.

    I'm trying Jicky today. The sample is one with a little stick, rather than a spray, and I always find it difficult to get the right amount onto my skin with those things.

    Long frustrating day today but wearing the gorgeous Love's True Bluish Light. It's starting to wear off so I'm wondering which comfort scent to apply as SotE. Also trying to avoid getting suckered into comfort food.

    Twolf, all the best of luck for Oath Day. I'm sure you'll be great and the best smelling person there! We are right behind you!

    ComDiva, hope everything is fine and that the mammogram went smoothly.

    Chaya Dervish sounds lovely and I´m sure it well go well

    Today I´m in Lolita Lempicka L
    I´m trying to find a perfume that has a lot of presence and doesnt fade soon and smells nice to the majority.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Today I am wearing:

    Guerlain Derby

    I've been waiting a while to try this one and what is nice is it isn't disappointing. Since this is the new formulation I was worried it wouldn't be so good. No worries as this is right up there with Knize Ten as an excellent leather scent on me. What is nice about Derby is there is a little more complexity in the top which is quite powdery but has a hint of mint to it as well. The transition from rose into leather as we move from heart to base is seamless and eye-opening. I will now be very interested to try the vintage formulation and see if I think it is better. This one is so good I'm hard pressed to believe the vintage can be that much better.
    Have a great day everyone.

    Derby sounds wonderful, SMM. I wish I could get my husband interested in fragrances. He would smell great in my SotD:



    Montale's Boisé Vanillé, from a sample. Not a foody, sweet vanilla, this is a woodsy spicy incensy sexy composition with just a hint of sweetness. If you like Estee Lauder's Sensuous but find it too sugary, you will definitely like this one. It's a tad too manly smelling for me, but it smells too good to resist. Dangerous for me to try these Montales! Notes: lemon, geranium, bergamot, lavender, cedar leaves from Canada, Jamaican pepper, iris, patchouli, vanilla, tonka bean.

    I hope everyone has a great day.

    Showered off and feeling less stressed now so decided to try the new Avon Bond Girl 007. I'm not a fan since there's a synthetic in the middle-base that I dislike which is also in NR for Her, SJP Lovely, Tous Touch, Ramon Molvizar Musk Goldskin Oriental (and others I've forgotten). I hazarded a guess at this being Cashmeran, and seeing "Cashmere woods" as one of the basenotes only reinforces this belief in my mind. The small amount of sillage it produces, however, smells rather caramelly and yummy.

    SL Cedre today.

    Need help.

    Tomorrow evening, I am meeting up with an ex-boyfriend who has had a really important influence in my life. This is the guy who encouraged me to go to graduate school and who I was supposed to marry when I got out. The story would take a novel.

    We've been communicating off and on since we last saw each other (about 6 years ago). The last meeting was.....uncomfortable. He wants to see me while I am in town.

    I haven't been this nervous since my last blind date (which was probably 5 years ago).

    What the hell do I wear!?!?!?! HELP!!!!!!

    SMM, I still remember your picture-puzzle for Derby. I am surprised that you've not tried it before. I guess, with seeing that puzzle, I thought you'd had it in your repertoire for a while.

    Ailuros, I prefer sprayers over dabbers as well.

    sakecat: Bandit but if you don´t have that I´d go for anything that makes you feel confident and assertive.

    Ubu: that may be my problem. I'm in a happy relationship now. Don't particularly want to go back to him. But I still want to be seen as desireable.

    We've got a long history of "Mexican Hat Dancing".

    I guess for more info - his signature scent for me was Hypnotic Poison. For whatever reason, I'm not entirely sure I want to wear that because I feel like a pretty different person from the one who wore that at that time (though I still wear and love the scent).

    Like the idea of Bandit - but I haven't worn the decant Taolady was kind enough to send yet. Not so sure how it's going to react on my skin. I think I want to go with something a bit more predictable.

    Try it out a little now, just a drop. Dont wear Hypnotic Poison, that might seem to him that you are wearing it for him..you can be confident and attractive but you dont want to give the guy the idea that you are still available for him right?
