    Default Scent me for Thursday and Friday! :D I'm meeting Trinny&Susannah from What Not To Wear! :D

    Trinny&Susannah from UK's What Not To Wear are coming on a mission to Flanders, and I've been selected!! What should I wear, scent wise, that reflects my personality? I also want to project an image of a grown up woman (I'm 30) that it's also fun, extrovert and easygoing... I'm meeting them tomorrow for the first time and Friday for my restyling. I have to wear the same clothes, so I cannot play with that... Maybe I should wear the same scent both days too? I'm lost!

    Can anyone, then, suggest something from my wardrobe? The weather will be nasty: grey and with loads of rain... Should I go with something wintery (warm and cozy) or with something that reveals my longing for spring (white flowers and fruits)?

    Thanks in advance!

    Darling Baldufita ! Wheeeeeeee ! Wonderful news ! I wish I could come along- I would LOVE to meet them too and also Stacey London and Clinton Kelly of US What Not To Wear.

    I think you should wear something you love and feel really yourself in- Black Orchid . I had a look at your vast and lovely wardrobe - I love a lot of your perfumes .Maybe Barbara Bui ? For spring and white flowers- Fleurs de Citronnier ?
    Ultimately, it should be something you are comfortable in .
    Have a great time !

    I vote for SL Fleurs d'Oranger - it's warm, sunny and bright, also classy and classic.

    Sarrasins maybe? Show them you can be outgoing and ultra-sophisticated at the same time

    I'm noting everything down as we speak!!!! I wouldn't have thought on Fleurs de Citronnier, one of my faves, though... I'm torn between my Lutens', as I think it would be a great idea to wear one to such an event... Talking about events! On Friday, and to celebrate our new looks, there will be a party... Is Black Orchid a good idea or would it be too much (or loud!)? I am very comfortable wearing it, though... And I feel really confident when doing it...

    I would definitely wear Black Orchid if I owned it!
    My second choice would be Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia.
    Good luck with the makeover. My son has a funny name for those two -
    Tranny and Suzanny. He got the names a bit muddled...

    Out of your Wardrobe and as based on your enthusiastics posts on our SotD threads, I would say:
    -- Day 1 Hanae Mori Yellow Butterfly;
    -- Day 2 TF Black Orchid.

    Reasoning? First is sunny and warm and cozy -- you are who you are, second is sophisticated, classy, rich -- you are who you are plus what they projected on you.

    Good luck and please let us know how it went.

    OMG!
    So its actually a ruse that the "victims" are "surprised" with their makeovers?!
    Talk about dashing my illusions to pieces!

    Well congratulations Baldufita!
    I'd go "old school" and put a spot of "Joy" behind each ear.
    Have fun!!

    I don't have any advice except to say that you MUST report back. I love, love, love those two - far better than I love Stacy and Clinton! That show improved my dress sense by miles.

    What fun! I vote for Fleurs de Citronnier. It's so bright & cheery. You are one lucky girl! I need to clear out my closet but it will be a trial. I wouldn't know where to start! Good luck. We need pictures, too!

    Yippee - how exciting! I'm so happy for you and your new wardrobe, and I can't wait to see it!

    I vote for Black Orchid, because it's you! But you should probably spritz lightly, just to be on the safe side...they're not allowed to touch your fragrance wardrobe, are they??

    That sounds like fun! I've never seen the UK version, but I'd wear a confidence boosting fragrance - whatever you will feel energetic and fabulous in.

    Fantastic fun - I LOVE those two and have two of their books.

    I may be out on a limb but I would suggest Omnia Crystalline from your wardrobe, or Tuberose Gardenia.

    Just as clothing is such a personal expression of who we are, so is scent. Please use this time to express yourself in a way the show hosts cannot: your personal sillage!

    How cool is that!?! I think Barbara Bui would be perfect. In fact it was the scent that first came to mind when I saw the title of the thread, before seeing your wardrobe or even reading the entire post.

    I was thinking about BB too... But I want something with a little sillage and BB has none on me... I think I'm gonna go for Fleurs de Citronnier for both days, and for Black Orchid for the party on Friday... I promise loads of pics...

    Thanks, thanks, thanks so much for all your help! What would I do without you, guys...

    I agree with this advice. Sounds like you've made your decision and you're ready to go! I haven't seen this show, but it sounds like a blast. Looking forward to your report!

    How exciting!

    My motivation would be to wear something the girls will be able to smell, and maybe recognise. In preferential order:


    Joy
    Black Orchid
    Aromatics Elixir

    I think you should wear something that makes you very happy and makes you feel confident.
    Let us know what you choose.

    How fun! You can't go wrong with any choices in your fabulous scent wardrobe. My votes would be Kelly Caleche and the Korres (with Black Orchid as a third).

    Yes, you absolutely must find out what T & S wear scentwise. You may even be able to offer them a little reciprocal consultancy if you feel they might be in need of it! : - )

    Yay! First recording day is done! I got to meet Suzanny, I mean, Susannah... She's beautiful in person and looks my age (which she's not... She's 47 I've heard)... She told me I had a good bum and good legs (yeah, right!) and that it seemed I was willing to learn all that has to be learned, which is true!

    I'll try to find out which fraggies do they use and offer my "expert knowledge" (yeah, right!!!) in return... That might be an interesting quest...

    Joining this party late but had to drop a line.

    These are brilliant, exciting news! Congratulations Baldufita!!! You're well worth it after what you've been through and I suspect your wardrobe need some updating since your clothes probably don't fit you any more (which is a good thing though :-)).

    You have to let us know all the gory details and I agree that it would be fun to know what scents they wear. Hope you'll have a great time at the party this evening.
