    Default SotD Wednesday 10 March

    Good morning!

    Yet another day in Annick Goutal Eau de Charlotte for me. This is a perfect scent for this time of year: cocoa & vanilla fit the snowy cold weather, mimosa & lily of the valley the bright sun and the promise of Spring in the air.

    Have a wonderful Wednesday, all!

    OJ Ta'if. It was a perfect choice for today. I got up tired, slightly grumpy. I was standing in front of my perfume cupboard looking at all the bottles and just didn't feel like wearing any of them. Then I saw Ta'if. It is bright enough to cheer me up but gives enough warmth and comfort to get me through a cold day (it's even cold in the office, the heating is again out of order :-( ).

    Tigrushka, your description of Eau de Charlotte makes me crave a sample to try. :-)

    Have a good day everyone.

    I am sad and shocked because I have learnt a friend of mine died unexpectedly in the night, shortly after elected surgery . He was my age and a rare soul. He had one of those ever twinkling , kindly faces. He was just kind to his core and will be greatly missed. Everyone who knew him loved him for his generosity of spirit.

    Narcisse Noir for me today.

    So sorry to hear about your friend, Mysticknot - that is shocking news.

    I have not been about much lately, partly because I am preparing for a long work trip, in France, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland, and also because I have been wearing a number of scents I couldn't spell.

    Today is just Kenzo Eau de Fleur de Magnolia. I spent some time preparing my travel scent bag for the trip - I suppose I should sort my briefcase out at some point...!

    Started off the early morning in a sample of Christian Dior Pure Poison. This is the very first time that I have tried any other Poison since my beloved original from the 1980's, which was perfect and glorious IMHO. I am trying desperately hard not to compare it, but alas I fail. Pure Poison is okay...just okay.

    Let's hold hands, mystic. Last week I was stunned to learn that my client/friend of 15+ years has less than a year to live. Besides making me sad, it has caused me to relish all the good things even more and to realign life’s priorities.

    Roma, kewart? I'm wearing Cadjmere (again), which Luca Turin appraises this way: “An abridged version of the woody-lactonic (in this case cypress-coconut) structure of Laura Biagiotti’s Roma.”

    mysticknot & Quarry I am so sorry to hear the news of your friends. Friends are so very special & precious.

    Blessed traveling to those "on the road" (or in the skies, as it were). I put my husband on a plane bound for Puerto Rico this morning. Looks like he'll be home sometime early May. So my "Totoro" isn't home anymore.

    My SOTD is just a daub of Sonoma Scent Studio's, Vintage Rose. Now this is more my kinda rose! A rose, quite pleasantly tippsy on red wine. She's got a nice buzz going, scent wise, even this early in the day.

    I like it!

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in vintage Cialenga by Balenciaga today - warm and mossy, and somehow soft and furry. Very nice.

    Guerlain - Sous le Vent

    Inspired by the wet earthy smells and the first signs of spring.
    This snappy chypre is like a breath of fresh air.
    As the name implies, it comes "On the Wind".

    Notes of basil, bergamot, lavender, tarragon, carnation,
    oakmoss, iris, woods, patchouli.

    This morning I'm testing one of FragrantCloud's creations, Oudh Out, a spicy, woody scent. On the agenda for this afternoon or evening is a test of Susanne Lang's Midnight Orchid.

    After getting to sample DIY perfumes by several BaseNoters (Ancika, Ed Carruthers, and FragrantCloud), I have to say that they all can hold their own against much of the commercial stuff that's out there. It just goes to show that there's nothing magical about established brand names, fancy bottles, hype, or big PR campaigns.
