    Default SotD Sunday 20 September -09

    Good morning all.Today is a very grey and boring day. Felt like wearing something with a bit of ooompf due to this. Sotd is Coco edp. Hope you all have a nice day and that all those going through a rough time feel better soon!

    OH! Look at that! I picked something warm and classic for church on a fall day, and thus became scent twins with Ineespenes! Original Coco EdP for me, too!

    Good morning all!

    After yesterday's loooong day of sampling fragrances in NYC (see my late night post in Saturday's SotD thread: http://community.basenotes.net/showp...4&postcount=49), today I've spritzed on a sample of Guerlain Idylle given to me by Luis at Saks. The first thing one notices is the gentle lily of the valley note. I love LOTV and am always happy to find another fragrance that has this note.

    one spritz of Carnal Flower is all one needs.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. 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."

    30 Roses, looks like a fun trip. I take it the Carnal Flower didn't smell like Fracas then?

    30 Roses, enjoyed your account of your sniffing trip. Those days are so exciting, especially if - like me - you don't live at the epicentre of perfume retailing!

    Had an unexpected visit from a NZ cousin and his wife this morning, which prompted an 11th hour flurry of hoovering. Wore JM Vanilla & Anise, which seemed suitably quiet for people of an unknown perfume persuasion. Turns out my cousin's wife wears EL Intuition, which was my signature scent (by default, as it was my only bottle!) before this madness kicked in.

    I've got the sample of L'Ombre Dans L'Eau on that Hebe procured for me. It has a really quickly flash of something green & citrussy at the start, and then it turns to a strange orchard-kind of smell on me. It's making me think of autumn and jam making. I've had it on a few hours now, and the rose is just peeking out.

    It's another for the to buy one day list, I think.

    Pip, you're getting much more from l'Ombre dans l'Eau than I did, it was straight snapped stems on me for ever. Pretty, but no development on me at all.

    Ugh.

    Why is it that large organizations spend more time and energy trying to remediate deadweight (and I'm being polite) than helping their good employees?

    JPG Ma Dame for now. Because I'm not wild about this scent and don't care if I wind up with unpleasant associations from it.

    In Dans Tes Bras again after a luxuriously late start to my day. A nice day lies ahead. I will finish an article that I am writing, do some baking, sort through bills, do my internet food shopping (welcome to New York life!), and then rub and roast a turkey. With the exception of the bills, I will have a good day.

    Oh, I miss Luis! Great guy, very knowledgable. He used to be at Barneys with Frederick Malle. Glad to know he's at SAKs. Thanks, 30 Roses!

    Today I'm wearing Parfums de Nicoli Maharadjah edp. I purchased a partial bottle from Ruggles here on basenotes & I'm very glad I did.

    Here's my little review:

    "In general, I am not a fan of lavender used in pefumery (aromatherapy's another thing altogether) but Maharadjah has proven to be an exception. The lavender opening IS bold and may be offputting to some. However, if you are looking for a very interesting fragrance, stick around for the dry down, it's absolutly worth the wait.

    The cinnamon/clove/sandal/patch drydown is delightful, warm, enveloping. Coffee isn't a note mentioned but every now & then I seem to catch a whiff of it, or something which reminds me of a wonderful warm cup of the dark brew.

    Maharadjah has an aura; it's the only scent I prefer to smell from a few inches from my skin. If I snuffle, as I'm wont to do, with my nose pressed into my flesh, the overall effect isn't as pleasant. (Too much lavender staight to the sinuses.) Instead, step away from the wrist (or wherever) and enjoy the sillage of Maharadjah.

    If you like the notes, I don't think you will be dissapointed, surprised perhaps, but not dissapointed."©

    Jubilation XXV by Amouage



    Seems like I'm not the only one who got inspired to wear this today, from discussing this on the thread Caeser posted yesterday. Good stuff, and quite lavish for a lazy Sunday at home paying bills and watering the lawn. But hey...life's short - I need to wear these fragrances and stop saving them for special occasions. Every day is a reason to wear something special like this one.

    Ava Luxe Opoponax Intense today. Cuddly sweater frag much more suited for a cloudy day (which, admittedly, I thought today would be) - so it feels a bit out of place. Still love it, though.
    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.

    Yes, Luis was great to converse with perfumes with. I don't think I've ever spoken with a more knowledgeable perfume SA anywhere.

    At Barneys the Malle SA who helped us was Nelson S.; perhaps you know him as well.

    One thing I want to add about our NYC trip is that I was sooooo glad I brought along the empty 2.5 ml atomizers. Without those, there would have been very few samples to bring home-- with them, I got samples at every counter where we requested one, including Barneys (not so in Barneys Boston last month, though.)
