    Default SotD Thursday 21 January

    Good morning!

    -17C here, but Les Parfums de Rosine Un Zest de Rose helps me feel like it's summer...

    Have a great day!

    As a newcomer, I'm anxious to try all the different fragrances everyone wears. My list keeps growing; I need to start ordering more samples. It's pouring down rain and predicted to be 62 degrees today...and, have many errands to run in addition to a meeting this afternoon...I'll be trying a tiny sample of Chanel 28 La Pausa. Will carry the sample with me to refresh before the meeting since I've read that 28 La Pausa doesn't have lasting power.

    Wanted a shot of fir and incense this morning.

    Neil Morris Earthtones #1 Dark Season

    Neil Morris like many of the artisanal perfumers likes to let his fragrances evoke a particular place or tell a story through its development. Mr. Morris’ Earthtones Series is all about feeling like you’re standing on a specific piece of Earth. The first scent in the series, Dark Season, was inspired by a nighttime walk in the winter woods of Finland. Dark Season, as do all the fragrances in the Earthtones series, does a wonderful job of taking you in an olfactory way to a specific place and season.

    Dark Season opens with a strong resinous fir note and it brings to mind that crisp cleansing first breath you take on a winter’s night. You can smell the pine trees and the cold chills your sinuses in a pleasant way. Accompanying the fir is a nicely muted patchouli which adds some of that crispness to the top. The heart is a mix of vanilla and cinnamon and is reminiscent of taking a warm vanilla drink sprinkled with cinnamon out for the evening stroll. For those of you who don’t care for vanilla it is the cinnamon that is the more dominant of the two notes and for those of you who are not gourmand fans Dark Season never really heads strongly in that direction, either. The base is an incense fest of labdanum and myrrh which brings back the resinous themes from the top.

    Dark Season has incredible longevity on me but surprisingly for one of Mr. Morris’ fragrances modest sillage.

    Dark Season is meant to remind one of the long Scandinavian winter nights but every time I wear it, it shines a lovely scented light on me.


    Have A Terrific Thursday everyone.

    Chanel 28 La Pausa lasts all day on the clothes! And yes, for your bare skin you have to refresh. (I wish it had more love on the forums altogether, it is a personal favorite from Les Exclusifs).

    L'Erbolario Meharees for me today. Insence, spices, very nice. Cheaper than many of its class. Lasting! (Time to explore more of this whole L'Erbolario line, if any of you have more fragrances to share, please contact me, I am familiar with their Lily of the Valley scent and it was a winner for me last spring for our SnS back in April).

    Re: 28 La Pausa...Spray on the inside of my clothes, right? I'm learning.

    I've sampled it once and and also think it will be a personal favorite!

    I've been without scent for a couple of rough sickdays because of a stomach bug so I've been sick all over the place...

    Feeling well enough today to try out my new vintage Bal a Versailles mini which arrived in the post today.

    Welcomewelcome to CavalierCanary (what a GREAT moniker!!)...another vote for La Pausa here (thanks to Wolfie who turned me on to it.)

    Grabbed a sample of Bond #9 H.O.T. Always (thanks Sloan-8013!) a fun 'fume that's roses and patch with a hint of leather. Spicy and energetic, if not very long lasting. May have to rev it up with some Bandit along the line.

    Today I'm wearing...a hot pack! Somehow I pulled a back muscle (my right Latissimus dorsi to be exact) while food shopping yesterday.

    I'm also wearing L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger! And wishing I could hasten spring.

    30 Roses ~ sorry for your sore muscle, at least you smell divine!
    Today I'm finishing a .25 oz (purse size) of Brooklyn by Bond No.9. ComDiva so aptly described the feeling of Brooklyn..."a little boring as a masculine but very interesting as a feminine" - so true!

    Hi new faces! Great names there, CavalierCanary and TrikkiRikki.

    Gentle pats to the Sicky Biccies. I feel for you with that pulled back, 30Roses. Ow! Eau de liniment perhaps?

    I'm in Cashmere Mist because I haven't worn it in ages and it's a school run day. I'd forgotten how initially sweet this is (comparatively - remember I've been on an oakmoss overload recently) but it's absolutely lovely.

    SMM - I love the sound of that Neil Morris; I have a little money coming my way so I think I can feel a session of ordering samples coming on.
    And Roberto, can I come sit next to you please? Those notes are gorgeous!

    Have a lovely day all.

    I've been noodling around at home, not showered or dressed yet, but I can still smell Pure White Linen from yesterday afternoon/evening, so I'm going to continue with that today. I love it from start to finish, and it's very long lasting on me. I hope all with ailments will be well soon. ♥

    Yes, Tiger Balm may be next. Or Freeze-It. The hot pack sure isn't helping much!

    Wecome, cavaliercanary. Many of us are intense and worrisome. (Guilty.) Could use with more cavalier around here. Of course, you may have another association with the word. We will extract or surmise this information from you over time, cc!
