    Default SotD Monday 15th February 2009

    Instead of waiting for the thread, why not creating it myself for once?

    Wearing Fracas from yesterday... This is so powerful I still smell strong! I'll probably reapply during the day, because I fell hard in love...

    Have a wonderful beginning of the week, you all!!

    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..."

    Wearing my sample of Acqua Di Parma Iris Nobile EDP - this is so lovely! I purchased a 5ml decant from TPC and managed to win a 4ml mini on ebay at the same time so hopefully that will stop me from needing to buy a bottle too soon! I just can't stop sniffing my wrist when I have this on

    Covered in vanilla patches today:
    Il Profumo di Firenze/Zenzero - Starts off sharp & bracing, almost herbal - no ginger though? After that a mediocre vanilla. Meh.
    La Maison de la Vanille/Vanille Noire du Méxique - Very nice: fluffy. Vanilla, musk, lemon (?). Reminds me of Perfect Veil & Opal, only heavier on the vanilla. Not too sweet either.
    Comptoir Sud Pacifique/Matin Calin - EW. GEROFFME. This is the love child of the unholy union of Ava Luxe Milk, Calyso St Barth Léa and Lostmarc'h Lann-Ael.

    In the interest of numbers, I'm declaring my fav of these three my Sotd: Vanille Noire du Méxique.

    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.

    Good morning!

    You might say I'm in a monogamous relationship with Terranova Gardenia. In fact, took advantage of their 10% off sale to replenish the cologne spray and perfume oil.

    May your dreams launch adventures to explore untapped avenues of potential...

    Good morning all. First of all happy belated birthday wishes to TurquoiseWater! I'm feeling a littlebit melancolic today My South African friends go back to Cape Town today. Wonder how long before I see them again now.Last time it took 7 years before I saw Jason again. The good thing about seeing someone so rarely is that at least you get time to miss them...And then it's even better once you meet To comfort myself a bit I'm in Chergui today.

    SMM - you sweetie !

    Kewart, love- you're my pet project today ;-)
    And you smell divine.
    You, too, Wordiekin.

    Eva, you waft beautifully....

    I'm going for Vol de Nuit extrait -
    Inspired by a night w/ Fille D'Eve.

    Funny- it appears that Ricci's can be very moody re : holding up over time [ I'm sure that this one may have had 'undue exposure' to heat or light, or both]
    But every Fille D'Eve I've ever smelled has a distinctly dusty mustiness.
    I don't mind, exactly- but it DOES affect whether or not I would choose to subject others to my rather eccentric pleasures ;-)
    Vol de Nuit seems very similar, but with much more 'flavor'.

    Be well, sweet scented minions !
    And Happy Birthdays to our many players ;-)

    Datura Noir at the moment.
    "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."

    Goodmorning! I'm heading into a busy week at work, in fact, I dread this week. To lighten my spirits a little, I'm wearing Mauboussin by Mauboussin. I haven't worn this in a while, and it always makes me smile throughout the day.

    Hope your Monday sees you cruising through in good scent and spirits!

    Kewart, that is simply the most gorgeous print ad I've seen! I tried Ivoire a couple years ago, but now I'll have to revisit it! Would be curious to find out who's artistic talent is responsible!

    Remnants of 31 Rue Cambon are still wafting from my body - here and there - Baldufita's choice of Fracas sounds so temptingly luscious, I think that will be my pick today as well!

    Back in the office this morning after 3 days off. Starting the week in PdN Odalisque.

    Is it just me, or is it hard getting back to work in the morning after a Valentine evening?

    Running a bit late today, decked out in CdG Series 2: Red - Palisander. Excited that I got two days worth of data collection done again last night, so all I have to do is write today, and the next Scents of The Week column looks promising.

    Sous le Vent by Guerlain (thanks NEoTY26)



    It takes everything that I love about Philtre d'Amour by Guerlain, strains out a bit of the bright, candied lemon and injects it into the most dazzling chypre accord. This scent makes me happy, when I wear it.
