    Default SotD Sunday 21 February

    Good morning!

    -20C and snowstorm here, and I'm still sticking with perfume oils... Today's choice is Dawn Spencer Hurwitz Essence Oils Jicky type.

    Enjoy your day!

    Hope you are feeling better Ms T.

    I hate that Sunday is in full force in other parts of the world already because that means the weekend's almost over. Boo hoo

    Scent of the moment for me is Gucci by Gucci EDP.

    We got so much snow here yesterday Tigrushka. Don't we all long for spring?

    Anyway I'm wearing Borneo 1834 from a sample. Yesterday I thought that Borneo not would be my next purchase, but today I think it will be. I think it's one of those fragrances that are there on you like some clothes and that fascinates me. I'm more of a floral woman than woody, but I like to own some non floral fragrances as well, and although I'm fond of many sweeter and creamier fragrances I like the dryness in Borneo. It is said to be a dark scent but at least in very dry winter air it is'nt.

    It is a bit dark and dank here today as the gargoyles drip with water slowly collecting on their stone cold forms. It is early and I strain to see any signs of that blue quality of light that precedes the dawn. So I shall wear L'heure Bleue.

    Sampling ( Sloan_8013) PG's Jardin de Kerylos...a fresh, green fig (I just LOVE BNers who are so observant - I mean, you guys know how I yammer on and on about figgies) with a hint of conifer. Heading up the road to sit The World's Most Adorable Grandbaby (TWMAG) and will see how it does longevity wise. Right now it's headed for the Lust List.

    Met a couple of dear friends in NYC yesterday for a fantastic day of schmoozing and of course a little sniffing. We made the usual rounds at Bergdorf's and Barney's. At Bergie's we tried L'Eau Serge Lutens - meh, what a whole lot of nothin'. I think Le Maitre is having a bit of a joke on us with that one. Went on to spend some time with the fabulous Tom, that veritable font of knowledge of all things Annick Goutal. He told us about Ninfeo Mio, Goutal's latest and a fig scent. It is not yet available for sale but he did have a tester which he graciously took out and let us try. It is deliciously fresh, cool and aromatic in the opening, moving into a warmer, balsamic drydown with a wonderful green, sappy fig note throughout. We went on to Barney's, but didn't see anything new or noteworthy there.

    We also visited the Krigler perfumery, none of us having been before, which is located in a small alcove inside the Plaza Hotel, oh la. The Krigler scents are well done, the use of high quality essences evident.

    We ended the day with a great visit with the divine Diane at Caron. Much has been written of the savaging of the urn fragrances but I'm here to tell you that as of yesterday's sniffing they are still intact, with that wonderful signature Caron heavy complexity. I retried Farnesiana in extrait and it is just as gorgeous as I remember. Tabac Blond may be a tad softer and tamer but again, it is recognizable from the few drops I have remaining of my extrait ca. 2004.

    Sotd is my new purchase of Krigler Lovely Patchouli and it is aptly named. An ambery patchouli with a bitter-chocolatey undertone and a leather note that on my skin is more like the smell of wet stones. It is simply wonderful.

    Enjoy the day, all!

    Good morning everyone. It is day one of my "seven days of 5 star frags" and I shall start with EL Knowing. This is one of my favorite fragrances, but yet, I hardly ever find the right time to wear it. It seems too much for work (hospital), too much for casual social times - just too much. But she is so fun to wear, as the notes shift throughout the day. Lovely soft rose on a bed of OAKMOSS!!! This is one of my few 5 stars that L. Turin and I agree on (wait till Hiris day )

    So today Knowing gets dusted off, sprayed on (as much as I like), and I will yet again be reminded why I love this beauty.

    Twolf, glad you are joining me in the fun! I look forward to seeing what you bring out this week, as I am not familiar with all of your fragrances. It will be a learning experience for me - and certainly a great smelling week for you!
    Antaeus, gorgeous pics for such a fun fragrance!

    Perfect setting for L'heure Bleue, N_Tesla! I love your description of the "feel" of your choice this morning.

    tdem, sounds like you had a wonderful day! My sister & I explored the Kreigler boutique during her visit here at Thanksgiving. she loved the patch fragrance too. I fell for the Juicy Jasmine & bought it. It's a beautiful sparkly jasmine and I think I'll wear it today as my SOTD.

    My husband leaves for Quebec tomorrow. We've been having a wonderful visit and are now watching Lord of the Rings together.

    Stop telling me these things. I can't wear the figgies around DH.
    Actually, thank you for the reporting. tdem, I appreciate your taking the time to share the details of your day.

    Thank you, first of all, to you wonderful Basenoters for your lovely words yesterday! What a kind bunch :-)

    We're heading out for a celebratory lunch to a deeeeeelicious Georgian resto (as in, Republic of). If any of you haven't tried that type of food, I highly recommend it: flavorful and healthy :-) So will wear Plus que Jamais from my dear VM

    Howdies all around!

    Yesterday afternoon I wore Diorella (no vintage, alas!), and also a tiny spritz of a vintage decant of Dioressence on the back of my hand. Lust! Watched a couple of great old movies: Emma (with the grande dame Marie Dressler) and You can't take it with you (Jimmy Stewart and Jean Arthur).

    Also wore: YSL Y to bed (am I thinking of spring?)

    The weather is an oookey mix of icy rain today. I am joining Nostalgie in OJ Woman. Plan on doing more of Kumquat's samples today, although as I told her, it is adding again to my wish list!

    Tdem, sounds like you had a magnificent time shopping!

    Shades, I had the same problem with my cap on Cuir de Lancome. The spray mechanism is ok, though. I think others have had the same issue about the cap.

    Nick, you wax poetic! Swoon...

    Lovethescents, just read about your news! Smiling big for you, sweetie!

    tdem: Lovely Patchouli is my favorite purchase of 2009! I bought it at Sniffa and just adore it! You are the first BN'r to share the passion!

    Hello everyone!

    I'm joining cello's five-star fragrance party, and I randomly chose Guerlain's luxurious Iris Ganache...'cause it makes me feel posh! It is incredibly beautiful and luxurious and tender, and it's the only really creamy and luscious iris I know of. It seems to be somewhat polarizing, but I think it is sublime, and I adore it beyond reason.

    Notes - Vanilla, Cinnamon, Bergamot, Patchouli, White musks, Cedar.
