    Default SotD Sunday 6 September

    Absolutely craving a sweet oriental today, and this 'spice bomb' seemed to fit the bill quite well:



    Lorenzo Villoresi ALAMUT


    Have a good Sunday!

    Still chuckling, having just read AromiEroticis review of Allure Homme!
    Love an honest commentary.

    Brooklyn for me today, inspired by ComDiva! She's so right about it being a more interesting feminine/slightly boring masculine.

    Aramis Havana today and I boldly added an extra spritz. Time to show the scent barbarians what a sublime fragrance is all about

    Hi, N_Tesla...was your birthday happy, honey ?

    I was a butch broad yesterday, in Yatagan, La Reine de Butch, naturellement. ;-)

    Last night, JWM.
    Early am- Miss Dior.
    Post shower, it will be Samsara parfum.

    B and I were too traumatized yesterday to do much more than cry, after 10 hours of drive and dropping J off at Princeton..
    No matter WHAT you've heard- no matter how much anticipatory work you've done-
    No matter how well-balanced you are-
    NOTHING prepares you for the loss. Nothing.

    Our sense of sorrow was magnified, for me-
    By travelling roads I'd taken so many times with my own mother [ soon my first anniversary of her death], including the one 37 years ago, when she brought me to Boston.
    All week long, the Divine had sprinkled my path with frequent allusions, events, reconnoiters that added to the warp and weft of the loom .
    The incremental effect was pretty devastating.

    So far, B and I are being gentle with each other, and very tender.
    We are pretty sad. ..

    Off to Ikea, to buy J a teapot and a small area rug.

    Love you all ;-)

    L'Occitane Honey & Lemon. I decided to order the 2007 (non-shimmer) version, and I'm glad I did. It's very pretty, and it has already elicited a compliment (a rare bird in the Midwest). It's gourmand, but unlike most of my gourmands (which feel like fall/winter scents), this one feels like summer.

    From L'Occitane:
    TOP: Italian lemon, Cinnamon
    HEART: Honey from Provence, Caramel
    BASE: Vanilla, Patchouli

    Aw, bless you, Chaya. It can't be easy to let go when you've loved them and looked after them for so long. I've been thinking of you, honey. Big hug.

    Nice one, Quarry, on your new speaking engagement. Woo hoo!

    I'm looking forward to some visitor-free time to get out house back in order after a summer of constant upheaval. I'm also going to be doing a bunch of work with Small to get her up to speed in kindergarten. (Geez, who expected to be playing catchup when she's only just started going?) And as part of my general tidying up campaign, I hope to get to sort through my samples and start testing properly again. Hopefully I'll learn a lot too.

    Anyway, my SOTD are both courtesy of the incredibly generous Petruccijc (Thanks so much, Joe!) and tie in to the SnS. I couldn't really join in yesterday, but today I have Opium Pour Homme on my left wrist (butch!!!!) and Arpege Pour Homme on my right (lovely! A really nice light woodsy fragrance that is perfect for women). I am really enjoying this and will keep going with the masculines for a few days more until I have exhausted Joe's generous care package. My hubby has even sniffed at the Opium Pour Homme appreciatively and he's notoriously fragophobic!

    That sounds pretty! I'm always looking out for a daphne note, and hadn't heard of that one. Have you smelled real daphne flowers, lilybelle? If so, can you smell them in this fragrance?

    I'm going for gentle and comforting today with Pacifica's Malibu Lemon Blossom, from a little solid sent by a fragrance friend. Here is the short description from the Pacifica website:
    This fresh scent captures the free spirit of the Pacific Ocean with lemony Litsea Cubeba, flowering Angel's Trumpet, fresh herbs and salty sea breezes.
    I'm liking it a lot! Tempted to order some of the body butter in this fragrance.

    Speaking of gentle and comforting, sending hugs to you, Chaya. You sound like an extraordinary mother.

    Putting my trusty camera through its paces after being away for repair - the camera, that is, not me - and it's as good as new. It never was a great quality one, but just sometimes I get really nice results with it.



    DA&GL for my Sotd.
    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.

    I don't think I have smelled daphne (that I've ever been aware of). What does it smell like? I definitely get the mandarin, mint, lily of the valley all up top, and something a bit sweetish like jasmine/narcissus combined, maybe that's the daphne? I'm not good at identifying notes.

    I'm wearing Keiko Mecheri Peau de Pêche. Very pleasant and pretty white peach scent. Plus the sandalwood drydown is lovely. Shame that it is hardly detectable - only when I press my nose into the crook of my elbow and inhale deeply, very deeply.

    It was Patchouli 24. Then the anti-patchouli SO said "eeeew!" and since I'm spending the day with him, I layered New Haarlem over it. Patchouli and coffee. Kind of works.
