    Many Happy Returns to Mostapha and denise!

    I'm aglow in the great Opium. There is a thread dedicated to it on POL, and reading that yesterday made me long for it. I wore it last night and again this morning. It is the edt version I have chosen for my long day at work, and I have learned to prefer this above the edp, though both are sublime.

    Today i am wearing Mostapha Favourite perfume

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am.

    Happy birthday!

    Sampling Amour de Cacao on this very rainy day, I got into the office looking like a drowned cat and changed into some spare dry clothes at work. Not a happy day.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Kul sana wa inta (it is "inti" in Egypt, unlike the rest of the world?) tayyeb, dear Mostapha! Oh, them sweet times in Egypt.... The world was younger and the cleaner those days....

    Martine Micallef Black Sea for me today, had just 3 hours of sleep at night, and it is going to be a long day at work again.

    ComDiva, I think you are right about OC and the "right"/"wrong" preferences for him. What if he is still undecided? I know some people can be.

    Semi-sadness for a friend whose mother died - essentially of alcoholism, via strokes and the body shutting down. Funeral's this afternoon...it's a warm, drizzly day....

    Ergo....

    Happiest of Birthdays, Mostapha and Denise !

    Lian, you DO smell good..make sure no one BITES you !
    Poor kittykat !

    Twolfie- don't you smell divine- don't you hate those long days that follow sleepless nights ?
    Hang in there, my dears.

    Went to bed in KM Gourmnandises, very jammy and rosy.
    Thinking more along the lines of Chypre Rouge...
    But, if I could find Kenzo Amour, le Parfum...I'd wear THAT...
    Yes, me love you, too, hon.

    Tommi- how sad !

    Make it a good day, my darlings.

    Decided on wearing Narcisse Noir today.

    That's too coincidental taolady, I was thinking of Guet Apens and posted a pic of the bottle in the "prettiest bottle" thread at about the same time you posted your SOTD.

    Happy B day to all who are celebrating today!

    Ok,so I finally managed to drag myself out of bed.This seems harder and harder the darker it gets.(that time of the year soon) Today I'm feeling a little bit under the weather,but promised to go out with a friend later....Will probably end up doing so Sotd is quite generous amounts of L.

    Happy Birthday to Mostapha and denisehollings!!!!

    Heading out to a conference for the next few days so it is travel day today.
    I am wearing:

    Ulrich Lang Anvers

    This is another of those jam-packed pyramids but unlike some of the ones I've tried recently which hold together and become something more. Anvers has a few off notes in an otherwise nice fragrance. In what has become an unintentional theme this week the top is citrusy with an herbal background centered on my friend sage. Usually the herbal contrast makes for a nice start but here it doesn't seem to come together as much as it seems like it should. The heart is all floral with jamine being the main player. There is a dollop of honey to sweeten the proceedings. The base has an excellent mix of amber, leather and oakmoss but there is a fruity hint that again doesn't work as well as it should for me and becomes a distraction instead of a compliment.
    Have a great Friday everyone.

    PG L'Ombre Fauve (vaguely reminds me of Jicky, but a tolerable version - most curious!)
    L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme (courtesy of the unstintingly generous Taolady! I am reminding myself how much I like it on me ie not too manly!)

    HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOSTAPHA AND DENISE!!!

    Big hugs to all who need 'em, and especially to Lian, Tao, and Chaya. But heck, we ALL need a good hug, in my opinion. Hug someone who doesn't expect it today (just don't get yourself charged with harrassment!)

    I'm reveling in more incense today (probably my favorite note, when all's said and done), thanks to dear Lady in Black :wave:, who's responsible for today's choice: Creations Mathias Eau de Narguile. Not entirely sure what all the notes are, but to my nose it's gorgeous floral/sweet incense. Love, love, love this one.
    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

    Woohoo! Tauer's samples arrived (quick!) and he threw in an extra one, so generous.
    Reveling in L'Air du Desert Marocain now, and boy is it pretty. Arid, dusty in a way that I can't decide is most reminiscent of an ancient bookcase or a desert, and incensy. It's gorg. And this is only the first one I'm trying! My credit card had better hide itself.
