    Default SotD Saturday 11 April

    Good morning!

    Staying with SL Un Lys.

    To my great surprise this was the first SL bell jar scent I fell in love with when I tried out the wax samples, and also the first one I got back in 2003. I had been very much into Orientals until then, but this white lily scent stole my heart and made me look at Florals in a different way.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    I'm wearing some dark, thick oud oil from Doha. This unnamed oud from a small perfumer is my favorite of all, with an almost equine note that I haven't smelled in any other oud oil.

    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. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Still in Ava Luxe No 23 - I am just LOVING this stuff!
    The shouty sheep in the back field have a tiny newborn lamb with them, so that explains the grumpy shoutiness all winter: pregnant. Obviously sheep get as stroppy as I did when I was up the duff.

    Ickle tiny baby lamb is seriously sweet and Small has already been up to the field to try to feed it carrots.

    Spring is very definitely here in Switzerland.
    Have a lovely day all

    The start of a wonderful Easter weekend is asking for an equally wonderful fragrance



    Lalique extrait (original)

    Lalique only designed beautiful perfume bottles for other Houses like Coty and Nina Ricci, or empty bottles you could fill yourself.
    But in 1992 Sophia Grojsman created the first wonderful fragrance for Lalique and Marie-Claude Lalique designed the bottle called 'Chèvrefeuille'.
    Two talented women created beauty.

    The fragrance Sophia Grojsman made is now sadly discontinued.

    Happy Saturday to all

    Wearing NR For Her Musc Oil but also testing Angelique Encens again and Sampaquita. From previous testings I remember that Angelique Encens just gets better and better as it develops on my skin throughout the day but there is a detached coolness about this fragrance that keeps me from loving it too much.

    Eau de Shalimar. I was craving this today (talking about it the other day put it in my head). And I've layered it with Simon's new perfume in a lotion form (it's a rich, burnt/smoky vanilla scent with a hint of jasmine), so today I'm getting a very different experience from the usual lemon tart of Eau de Shalimar.

    Thank you again for all your well-wishes, I am really touched. xxx! (And also cringing a bit at all the "don't forget us when" - 1) as IF, 2) I'm such a newbie and only a student so it's hard to imagine getting carried away; I'll be exceptionally lucky if I ever get a finished perfume out to the shops!).

    Warming up a bit for Easter Saturday - been working all week (including today) and will be happy for warmer temps (the shop and the delivery van are both FREEZING - keeping the flowers cold is more important than keeping the peon warm!!)

    I'm going with Aqua Allegoria Laurier-Reglisse. It's not exactly what I want. I want something lemony. But I want something with a bit of staying power too. The bergamot top is going to have to be close enough for rock and roll.

    I've been so off the grid. Sick Mom. She's actually recuperating and I'm so glad to be back. Missed you all!
    Comfort scents all the way lately. Layering Pacifica Sandalwood with Ligne St. Barth Vanille. Yummy, and oh so soothing.
    Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
