    All the lovely choices today!

    Cold rainy muddy and not very Springy at all here. NOT what I hoped for as it is a day off. What scent will brighten up slogging around doing errands in the rain?

    Probably nothing will help, but ETRO Dianthus may be my best option as I am still in the throes of passion with this one!

    I also toyed with Heart of Glass for this morning, but as it is "Temporarily out of stock" I dare not use up my sample before Serena makes up her mind about this one!

    Planned to play golf.
    Still raining
    More coming (despite the optimistic bleatings of the weathermen - have they even LOOKED at the moving radar?!?!)

    So - staying indoors in Viktor & Rolf Antidote. (Thanks SMM!)

    After the initial bergamot and herb blast (which reads masculine - but beautifully blended), becomes a lovely spicy floral smoky leather thing.

    More wearable for a woman than initially anticipated.

    Have an awesome weekend!

    I stood outside in the cold, drizzly rain for 2 hrs this morning, at my son's first soccer game of the season. The most interesting thing occurred with my SotD, that almost distacted me from watching the game, and made shivering in the weather a good experience.

    I wore Serge Lutens Douce Amere, and while always a beautiful scent, today in the cold rain it was absolutely stunning. A note came out that I'd never smelled in the fragrance before...a gorgeous mossy note that balanced the sweet, woodiness of the scent.

    Perhaps it was the absinthe, or the marigold. For some reason, I never smell the anise in this scent...maybe that's what came out today.... Anyone have suggestions what I was smelling?

    Notes: absinthe, cinnamon, anise, lily, jasmine, tiare, tagette, marigold, musk, cedar.

    Angel today for me. I have come late to loving Angel and still wouldn't consider wearing it to work. But I am so enjoying the Angel cloud in which I walk today.

    Sunkissed Glow by JLo. A fresh, juicy, edible opening that vanishes in absolutely no time. Pity, since the one and a half minute or so that the top notes lasted was really enjoyable.

    Nukapai - I hope and THINK that one day you will have your very own scent out! Your signature "Un petit nez" has had me thinking in this direction, also.

    Strange Invisible Perfumes Lady Day for me today...which seems like a cross between Fracas and Carnal Flower. I think I prefer Carnal Flower of the three of them. I hope you all have a blessed Saturday, everyone! Stay warm and well!

    My sweater smelled of Habit Rouge EDP, so I decided on something that would not clash--today's SOTD is Profumo Bazaar. Now I am wondering if I smell agarwood in Bazaar among the spice melange. It still mostly reminds me of Egoiste, though.

    Happy Belated Birthday, Mr. Guerlain...and anyone else I missed !
    Big congrats to Pai-Pai !
    Happiest Passover and Easter to all !

    I've been back at work with a vengeance-
    But the spasm is horrendous; I haven't been able to tolerate being seated to post, even.

    [I haven't experienced such pain since '85, when I was paralyzed in an accident.
    PT on Thursday, after work, only made it worse...and carrying 150 lbs. long distances on Wed., to make Seder, didn't help, either]

    Love you all...
    And wish only the best of Pesach, Easter to you fine folk !

    Oh- sotd yesterday- Parfum Y.
    Today, Baghari.
    MWAH !

    Liturgical incense and flowers are just right for me today, so I'm in Chanel No. 22 edt. It feels a little reverant.



    On that note, I'm off to go Easter egg hunting with my five-year-old niece.

    Loving, healing, and/or celebratory vibes to YOU, beautiful reader of this post, whoever you are!
    I shake my fist at the sky for such undeserved afflictions as beset ComDiva's close friend and Chaya and any here who suffer. Darkdreams, so sorry for your anguish at the hands of beautician trainees.
    SMM, full Joss report, please.
    Continued thanks for happy hubby birthday wishes. PSSSST! Wanna hear a great secret: There is something really wonderful about becoming an old couple.

    SOTD: I've been a bad, bad, little Basenoter (okay, NOT little), but I really must catch up with reviewing Profumo scents. So am wearing Cuba Express on one wrist and Chilum on the other.

    Mmmmmm everyone smells so delicious today; this must be because it's a holiday weekend.

    Hope everyone is having a wonderful Passover and a super Happy Easter.

    I love my family roots on both sides; on Wednesday evening we had a delicious Kosher chicken for Passover, tomorrow for Easter we are having a marvelous glazed ham with raisin sauce. Talk about having the best of both worlds

    Lizzie- I am so happy to see you are back and your mom is healing up. She will be in my prayers.

    Chaya- sweetheart, we talked about this; you have to take it easy, stop overdoing. Rest yourself a bit meine Süße, heal up.

    Well since it is an icky cold rainy day here; I decided to put on a little Vega (thanks Dimples) for comfort.

    Hope the rest of the day will be wonderful, love and hugs for all.

    Lizzie, I was thinking about you this morning, wondering where you were. Glad to have you back and doubly glad your mom is on the mend.

    I'm feeling a little exhibitionist-like today, so without prompting I thought I'd share with everyone, that even though I wore the AA Laurier Reglisse as sort of a consolation prize, last resort kind of thing, I ended up really enjoying it.

    I'm still feeling the buzz of meeting Joss Whedon last night. for the non-geek among you he is the creator of Buffy, The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse and Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog. He is one of my personal geek heroes and he was in town to receive an award for secular humanism. Secular humanism is a catch-all which pretty much means non-believer in a religious sense. We had met when he was in town over the Writer's Strike and he came to lead a march in Cambridge. Then it was more walking and going "wow its cold". Tonight I got to exchange a few words with him and he was great and easy to talk to. He went on stage and gave a beautiful talk about what it means to be a non-believer in this country. One of the best passages was when he has been told many times how something he has written has made someone feel amazing. He said he had that feeling for the first time when President Obama mentioned non-believers in his inaugural speech. That a President was including him as an American made him sit up and feel amazing. So he said when you guys say that to me now I know what you mean. He was asked a lot of geeky questions culminating in who would win in a fight River or Buffy? He asked for a show of hands and after River won the vote he said "The blond goes down-sure Buffy can fight but River is programmed to kill." It is nice when your personal heroes live up to that status when you meet them for real.
    Anyway it has been a busy day fiull of errands and dodging the, hopefully, last fat snowflakes of winter and I am wearing:
    Parfumerie Generale Querelle

    Have a Serene Saturday everyone.

    In L'eau de Circe again, accompanied by a test spritz of Coromandel -- the Coromandel is spicy and rich, but its inky drydown does not seem to be compatible with my skin. Darn, because it is lovely!

    Good thoughts to all who need them, and all who don't.
