    Default SotD Sunday November 23

    Where is everyone? Why are you all sleeping in? It's only Sunday! :bounce:

    Starting this (very early) morning off with

    Perfumers Workshop Tea Rose.

    I am now afraid to go back to bed for fear of smothering the SO in bouquet of roses.

    Enjoy your Sunday everyone!

    I've been up for hours! Another day in Heliotrope Blanc.
    I find it so comforting during these cold, wet days we are

    Lalique Encre Noir

    From Fragrantica: Lalique's Encre Noir was designed by Nathalie Lorson of the house of Firmenich. She surrounded it with the top notes of fresh and aromatic accords of cypress and vetiver, soft, warm, leathery and rustical. Mysterious bourbon vetiver and smoky Haiti vetiver are in the heart of the composition. They lead to sensual notes of musk and velvet-like cashmere in the base of this masculine fragrance.

    I´ve been up for quite a while too, if still very sleepy, though...

    Wearing PG Ilang Ivohibe today, and dreaming of summer.

    Hey - what´s that you´re wearing, Dimi..

    AP Maitresse this morning, now sampling 100% Love. Not a fan, there's something weirdly salty in there which I used to think was oakmoss. (Oh my, leather in Mure et Musc and oakmoss in 100% Love? Either my skin has really strange chemistry or my nose has gone faulty lately!) Feels very synthetic too.

    Happy Birthday, Sake !
    Happy Birthday, Lady M !
    Kudos and congrats, 'Pai !

    Spent yesterday in the arms of my men; Isaac came home, we napped together, ate together...
    When J and B came home with orchard apples- we baked pie together.
    Feeling blessed by the amazing warmth of frends and family !
    [And "look Ma- no tears !", LOL]

    Wore Lann'Ael with Eau Lente yesterday, the Rykiel Woman, and Arabian atta Shafali for bed [ roses and musk].
    Put flannel sheets on all the beds.

    Probably up for big amber today- Alahine, perhaps.
    Need to make packages and organize here...

    Love to you all !

    Chaya, this sounds dorky, but I always look forward to your SotD posts; they're like little scented-daily-life-haikus. And thank you for the shout-out

    And thank you, too, Lushsoup and anyone else I might have missed!

    Happy belated birthday wishes to Sakecat and Lady M (that's right, isn't it? Please don't banish me if I got this wrong).

    I'm being boring in Ambre Sultan again. Boring in that I can't seem to tear myself away from it!

    We've turned the heat on for the first time this winter today. Outside is cold, but not cold enough for it to be snowing, so it's icy rain instead. Should go to the food shop today but I don't feel like it. Brrrrr!

    Next week I've got a couple of trips (one of which is a day-trip flight; will be quite tiring). Today I feel like snuggling up.

    Trying Lutens Borneo and loving it!
    Until now I have never found a chocolate note in perfumery that works for me - I always feel it smells too cheap and plasticky and inedible.
    Also, I famously don't understand patchouly - it confuses me and I often think it makes a fragrance smell like old-fashioned aftershave.
    This fragrance infamously consists of these two notes and... it's brilliant! The chocolate is sharpened and the patchouly suddenly becomes understandable to me; spicy and warm with a cozy side. I appreciate their genius with this fragrance.

    It's perfect for a snowy, sunny, cold, beautiful Swiss day. It looks just like you'd imagine. (Well, without the chalets and ski lifts, as I don't live in that part of Switzerland, I live in the southernmost reaches of the Black Forest: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang country.)

    Have a lovely lovely Sunday all. Coziness, hugs, warm blankies and hot chocolate to all of you. Yes, WITH whipped cream! (And patchouly!)

    Lady Riannon, dear, I am DEEPLY shocked and will have to contemplate this transgression of yours moodily (and appropriately) in L'Heure Bleue.

    p.s. I was gonna wear it anyway

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    I'm having another try at Pleasures by Estee Lauder. Last time I felt engulfed in vile chewing gum smells, but not today. This time I like it much better. I also have a small dose of Rykiel Rose on my hand. After a fizzy opening it is maturing nicely. I wonder if it is having an effect on Pleasures, which seems more floral and less minty than at my first attempt.


    Top Notes: White Lily ,Violet Leaves, Green Accents

    Middle Notes: Black Lilac, White Peony, Karo-Karounde Blossoms, Baie Rose, Pink Rose, Jasmine

    Base Notes: Sandalwood, Patchouli

    Love the way you're smelling today everyone! Opened my mailbox to find a glorious little coffrett of samples from the lovely, ever-generous Quarry!!!

    Sampling my way through them today, beginning with Nanadaberry Green - starting off very fresh, and the newest Sophia Grojsman, "E" ~ can you say "SOAPY CLEAN"!!!!

    I'll post comments in the review section later today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    How're you all doing today? So far so good, I see, judging from you're frags. :wave: Hey there, Ubu.

    I'm recognizing an odd trend: My favorite frags come in squarish bottles. Hmmm. Wonder if that means anything?

    It took me until the middle of the afternoon to decide on Carthusia's Aria di Capri. Turin/Sanchez described it as iced amaro. It's much lighter and fresher than any amaro I've ever tasted - but that's probably a good thing, because, while I like amaro as a drink, I've never been tempted to wear it.

    Sorry to hear you're feeling down... Maybe you can get some good suggestions on the "Just Plain Joyful" thread for pick-me-scents. Perhaps something light and citrusy would help put some sparkle in your day.
    Hope you feel better soon!

    A busy Sunday ahead.
    First I have to visit an exhibit called "Icons and Altars"
    This is so I can pick my Christmas gift. On Dec. 14th they pick your ticket out and you get to pick whatever piece you want to take home. My lovely wife bought me a ticket and so I'm off to scout the pieces in person. You can use the link above to play vicariously if you wish.
    Then I should be home to watch the second half of my beloved Dolphins versus the Pats as I really find out if this team is for real.
    Then while my wife goes out to the opening of her work at a local library I host her stitch group for Sookie-Fest 2 a marathon of the last five episodes of the new HBO series "True Blood". If you like supernatural shows you should check this one out.
    To do all of this I am wearing:

    Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta

    I like all three Colonias but I agree with most that Assoluta seems to work the best on me.
    Have a great Sunday everyone.
