    Good morning all,

    I'm being haunted (well, not in a bad way) by images of an_oud_girl happily skipping through Nordstoms, holding a sample in front of her like a child would hold a teddy and leaving a scared SA with a twitching eye behind. If you have no idea what I'm talking about have a look at yesterday's SotD thread and search for her post (easy to find - it's the last post).
    an_oud_girl, I loved that post. I think I'll keep that image close to me all through the day to keep my mood up.

    Oh and Brielle: Lovely house. May I come and visist if you buy it? May I? May I? (forgive me, I'm still in child modus from reading an_oud_girl's post).

    Btw, my SotD is Mugler Cologne (again...).

    Have a great day, everyone!

    I'm wearing a drop of vintage Derby, which I am sampling thanks to a transatlantic enabler whose package is on the way as I write!

    It's scents like this that separate the sheep from the goats. It's just beautiful, splendid, stately, beyond time. The sort of scent that makes you shake your head in respect. It's not about whether it's 'nice' or not, it's just 'excellent'.

    Would love to wear this more (thanks Tao!)

    Brielle, good luck with the house hunting. Don't worry the right house will let you know that it wants you to be its owner once you step inside.
    an_oud_Girl I also loved yesterday's SotD post it has made me start my morning with a big grin.
    Chaya here's hoping this morning finds you migraine-free.

    I've finally gotten off the beach and wanted something with heft and so I find myself in a haze of roses.

    Les Parfums de Rosine Rose Kashmirie

    Marie-Helene Rogeon is the founder of Les Parfums de Rosine and their raison de etre seems to be to see how many different types of rose centered scents a House can make. With that kind of a mission that probably means there is a rose in there for every nose. I am a big fan of Les Parfums de Rosine Rose D'Homme. I also love the mix of rose and saffron I get from both Diptyque's Opone and Czech & Speake's Dark Rose. The 2007 creation, by longtime nose for Les Parfums de Rosine Francois Robert, Rose Kashmirie promised me rose and saffron in an oriental and I was looking forward to it. One of the things I like about Rose D'Homme is the arid dusty rose in that scent, Rose Kashmirie couldn't be more different as this starts with a full-throated roar of rose as lush and full-figured as rose gets on me. The rose is quickly joined by a touch of bergamot and then the saffron shows up and this is what Rose Kashmirie is all about as the smooth saffron takes the top to an enchanting olfactory space. As this develops the rose becomes deeper and slightly sweeter and then a hint of resin adds a slight bit of incense-like sweeteness to the scent. The base takes a turn towards vanilla and a light woody musk. The vanilla is the dominant note and that seems appropriate because the theme of Rose Kashmirie seems to be sweet rose and the vanilla allows that sweetness to develop all the way to the end. For all that this is an intense rose it does not carry a lot of sillage and is mostly close-wearing on me and I like an intense scent that only feels the need to fill up my nose and not the room. The longevity is excellent as have been all of Les Parfums de Rosine that I have tried to date. Once again I have taken a walk in Mme. Rogeon's garden of perfume roses and found a new one to add to my lapel.

    Have a Tripendicular Thursday everyone.

    Today I wore Miss Dior Cherie, this one always seems to get noticed! I also love this because it was a gift from my mum, who loves to fuel my perfume addicition.

    I really love this fragrance, although I wish I got more of the 'caramel popcorn' note - it doesn't smell very caramel to me.

    I'm wearing what Roberto wore yesterday: l'Eau d'Hadrien edt, except that mine has a bottle like this...

    There is never a time when this fragrance is not perfect. It's perfectly balanced between tart and sweet - I mean perfectly! And the woodsy base is cool.

    I hope everyone is well. Enjoy the day!

    Best of luck with the house-hunt, Brielle! And don't worry, if you fall in love with a place (or two or three...) and it doesn't work out, you WILL still find the right house. It doesn't become a "home" until you are actually in it, infusing it with your presence (and scents!).

    An_oud_girl, GO YOU!!! I'm smiling too...

    Today for me, Guerlain Chamade, from a sweet little bee bottle!

    Chamade notes: Turkish rose, ylang-ylang, jasmine, lilac, blackcurrant buds, lily of the valley, galbanum, sandalwood, vetiver, musk, amber, iris, and tonka bean.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to follow ScentSon's directive to have a "Tripendicular Thursday" - Maybe some flow yoga at the end of the day? AgentProvacateur, what do you say?
    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

    LE TROISIEME HOMME


    Another masterpiece from the venerable house of CARON
    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..."

    AL's Sweet Patchouli for me today. It is interesting that I regard amber as a winter scent, but patchouli and sandalwood speak summer to me. It must be all those sweaty summer nights in the 1960s!

    Hey all!

    This AM's SOTD is the new Cristalle flanker, eau Verte. I just preordered a FB of this from BG, but it won't ship til mid-Aug. Very nice, seems to be a transparent crisp citrus.

    OT: Kbe, your "madding crowd" comment reminded me of a very under-appreciated actor, Terence Stamp, who played the soldier in "Far from the Madding Crowd", one of my very favorite 60's period movies, which starred Julie Christie. He also was fantabulous in "Pricilla, Queen of the Desert", which stands next to Rocky Horror as my favorite camp movie. Just saw him in Tom Cruise's "Valkyrie", netflixed last weekend. Great actor with an unbelievable range.

    Great day to ya'll

    Testing FOUR different samples of Bvlgari pour Femme....

    Two are off
    One is lovely
    One is different, also nice, but possibly something else that has been mislabelled.

    Will retest the two pleasant ones over the course of the day, and take a view.

    LOL at an Oud girl! Good luck with the house-hunting, Brielle. VM - your dedication knows no bounds.

    I started out in Daisy, it lasted for about 20minutes before I decided that life was too short, washed it off and swapped for Lipstick Rose. Which is a much much better choice on me.

    Geez, I really should have finished reading YESTERDAY's SOTD before I posted today:

    Veuve Amoit: Cucumbers and PB is a new one. Hey, I'm willing to try anything once!
    Rogalal: Pickles actually sounds pretty doable. Similar to cucumbers, after all.

    Nuka, one I forgot to add yesterday: PB and honey. This is good on any kind of bread. Personally, I think whole grain breads do best with this combo. My dad has always slathered whole bananas with PB and eats them in all of their glory, as is. Just don't dip them in the jar, or they'll most likely break off and make a home there.
    Another: PB and apple slices (Jonathan-type or Granny Smith are best) alone or on bread, either way works.

    Brielle: gorgeous house!!!!!

    I had to go back and read Brielle's and an_aoud_girl's posts....LOL at the shopping/Tom Ford experience. This is when I realize how lovely it is that people like "us" have a common place to share! I could feel your joy at finding something you've been dying to try!

    Brielle, as a realtor, I wish I was house shopping with you! The way you described the attic- the height, the smell of the old wood! I love love love working with buyers (more than listings) it's so exciting and basically, shopping for a house!

    Hm, a breezy super muggy day here. Eau de Camille for me....if this came in parfum I would swoon, as I know I will have to re-spritz or, pick a new scent by mid afternoon
