    Default SotD Monday 1 December

    Good morning!

    I have a busy week ahead (two exams) so started the last month of the year with a blast of fiery spices combined with the cool breeze of fresh herbs: Lorenzo Villoresi Piper Nigrum.

    Wish you all a smooth start for the week and the month!

    Best of luck Tigrushka! Also, welcome to Basenotes, Perfaddict!

    I pinched some of my mother's TBS No Debate (she doesn't actually use it but it smells divine!) then decanted her some more Opium, now my SotA/SotE.

    Found a few FM samples in the mail from Mecca Cosmetica (our only source for niche perfume here) since they are stocking FM in select stores nationally but not in Canberra (how typical ). I was a bit hesitant to try Dans tes Bras, so I offered some to the little sister who tried it unknowingly. Luckily it was very nice! I'm now waiting for the Opium to fade more to try out DtB myself!

    Default Re: SotD Monday 1 December again: Muschio di Quercia/Oak Moss today. Very nice so far - woody, but without that hard, pungent edge that I find in a lot of woody fragrances.

    I'm wearing new clothes today from the skin out, top to toe. I wanted a new scent, but decided to try something old but hardly worn, so last night I experimented with Guerlain classics - Chamade on one arm, Nahema on the other. This served only to remind me how vile they both are, so instead I'm wearing an old favourite today, one that always makes me feel good:

    Rose Absolue by Annick Goutal

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

    Enjoyed my final day in Melbourne, and then back home on the plane! After a long weekend of shopping... I'm not looking forward to work tomorrow. Did some absolutely MAD shopping, and got a fantastic stash of new things. Here's a list:

    1 red handbag and 1 black handbag
    2 semi-casual dresses
    1 t-shirt and 1 singlet top
    1 pair of black ballet flats
    3 new summer pyjama sets
    4 gorgeous soaps from a market (scents are chai, berry, freesia/mint, African honey)
    1 Marcs dark-grey cardigan
    Mango green tea
    + Christmas gifts for my brother, sister and boyfriend.

    The bags coming back on the plane were FAR heavier than they were going there!! Overall an absolutely fabulous, fun and successful trip!

    I wore Nutrimetics Georgie on Ice Gold, which I took on the trip because of its cute, small size. While I was there I found the most wonderful little perfume store! It had many fragrances that can't be found in Australia and need to be ordered online from overseas. I only had a short time to spend in there and to be honest I think I was just overwhelmed by it all. I tried a couple of Vivienne Westwood fragrances while I was there (I liked Let it Rock best). There were some GIANT bottles used for display which belonged to the lady that worked there: Shalimar and Joy are two that I remember. They were ENORMOUS! Not filled with the real fragrance though (I asked).

    Tiny bit of vintage Tabac Blond from a sample I got long ago from the most wonderful BNer. This is too good! I need a special ocasion to use up my sample. I don't think I can do much work with my wrist to my nose.

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."

    Back to work after the loooong weekend, wearing:

    Prada Amber pour Homme

    This is a really amazing scent that I took too long to try. This starts off with a nice top of neroli which is quickly joined by patchouli and vanilla which are exquisitely balanced on my skin. The base is mostly vetiver and leather with a light spiciness. This is a real nice piece of work by Daniela Andrier.
    Have a Marvelous Monday everyone.

    Before I'd decided on my SotD, what should I encounter but a set of samples, courtesy of dear Taolady? So what's a girl to do? Wear everything at once, of course! Ava Luxe Café Noir, Bond no. 9 New Haarlem and Molinard Habanita have found their way onto bits of skin and are wafting away as we speak. I'm enjoying all of them immensely, but to the "outsider" it must be quite the cacaphony of smells. I think everyone should be thankful I have the day off today.
    Many thanks, Taolady!
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.
