Thread: SotD Saturday 20 March
Inspired by Dimitri's article "Death of a Classic," I'm in vintage Opium edt today.
Have a great weekend!

True confessions: I came to Basenotes simply to find a few good frags and maybe a new signature scent. However, I am now completely addicted to sampling, so my Scent of the Day is usually a Scent of the MOMENT....and I am finding it increasingly more difficult to choose a SotD as there are so many good ones. I think I'll try Le Labo Fleur D'Oranger...for now.
Decided to wear Shalimar today instead of previous choice.
Sharing the house with Roberto ... but it's Lorenzo Villoresi Musk for me today.
Happy weekend to all ...
I've trademarked the color bleu
I am wearing SSS's Opal today and enjoying its warm cuddle.
Congratulations to Chaya on her writing venture. The trouble with good fragrance writing is that one is sorely tempted to make a blind purchase...
Chaya, you make GreenWitch sound beguiling. I love the idea of a marriage of earth and ocean...
Love that lion, Kumquat, and the lazy kitty, Lessa (glad you're feeling a bit better!).
This morning I'm comparing the EDT and EDP versions of Jean Patou's Ma Liberte. I think the EDT suits me best, but the EDP is what I bought. Hmmm... may have to set up a sales thread to clean out a few things. (And you all know that is code for "make room for more stuff.") :-)

Cristalle edt for me today.

Chaya, I normally do not get along with anything with "orchid" in the name or the notes, your SotD L'Artisan's being an only exception. (I know, some people can say that orchids are the most prolific plant class in the world with scores of subclasses and families, but please, be gentle on me).
L., this picture of a cat made me smile -- very nice and relaxing. Can you go without a pill? Like, a hot bath, having your feet rubbed, warm tea with honey, possibilities are virtually limitless.
In Tann Rokka Kisu, a double shift at work, 20F in the morning.
Wore Gaiac for lunch with the girls today. Going to shower and change into Bois et Musc now.
Put on a little dibber dabber of PG Querelle. I can almost smell it, so I think my cold is better. Yay.
Lessa, I find that if I cannot quiet my mind, I cannot get any sleep, no matter how tired I may be. Perhaps you could try some specific winding down techniques several hours before bedtime? Getting your thoughts down on paper, stretching, hot baths, no television, no computers, that sort of thing. As a lifelong insomniac I feel your pain, but even I am able to sleep nowadays as long as I am able to quiet my mind. Good luck to you, poor pumpkin.

I "thought" my SotD was So Elixir (YR, just got it today), but after having worn it on my wrists for just an hour, I can´t smell it anymore...
In my package from YR I also got the small bottles of vanilla, blackberry and framboise, so tonight I will keep myself amused with blending, layering and experimenting.
OMG! Just saw Baldufita´s post, lol! I have applied some more So Elixir now, and it IS nice, so I guess I have to order the body lotion, too.

Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
SoT morning... Habit Rouge
Then... layered on some E.M. Ca' d'Oro (warm lovely Venice nights)
Then... the somewhat plastic-laced remnants of MKK (a decant deal gone wrong in shipping, the bottle leaked in the shipping envelope and not enough left to really get to know.)
Think I'll warm myself up with a shower and try again. Cold wind and a somewhat failed attempt at a blizzard... if it's going to bliz it's going to have to get serious about it in the next few hours.)... hmm. SoTE? Probably Mitsuoko. Or maybe I'll layer something scrumptiously warm and something else scrumptiously warm.
Yay Musse!!!! You're gonna have so much fun with those...
Regarding So Elixir, so funny that you say you can't smell it anymore... On me it lasts and lasts... :/
Wore Borneo 1834 for going to cinema with my daughters.
Chanel No. 19 parfum, now that it's spring.
I just received a box from my cousin and his wife stuffed with clothes handed down from their grandkids-- a Florida Gators onesie, a John Deere onesie, and a pair of camouflage overalls (these last two items were worn by their granddaughters). My kid is definitely going to be original here in Silicon Valley!
(Some of you might wish to have a look at my post yesterday to the Member's Pictures thread. )
I still can't really bear to wear any of my rich, stinky favorites, so I'm getting by in Avon's Haiku (inspired by the Avon thread). Nothing special here, just light, clean, pretty, and most of all, tolerable.
Eddie: Sweetie, what are you drinking?
Patsy: Oh, this? Chanel No. 5.
-- Absolutely Fabulous
been sitting in the backyard watch the hummingbirds feed on my bushes today-Paradise!
Earlier, from a sample from Rei Rien tried Le Feu D'Issey Glad to have it as a reference sample but wouldn't seek a FB even if it weren't DC and very pricey,
Now trying Patou Que sais-je

Today I am wearing vintage Venise by Yves Rocher. Very "Must"-like.
My first post!
Wearing Chanel Coco EDP today, and loving it!
Welcome, Bloomy! I think that is the way most of us "get hooked". Habanita for me today...shower gel, lotion, parfum & EDT. Basenoters turned me on to this frag and I thank you for that.
And the SoTE is Opium. Because I can. (I really like it now that I've become accustomed to its opening notes. Was kind of a "gasser" the first time. Can see why it's a classic.)
Amouage Gold for a friend's wedding
Hey Oud_Girl! Now we know what you've been up to (giggling)...HUGE congrats to you and big daddy to be - motherhood already looks wonderful on you!!! xoxoxox
Just checked back in, and I'm sooooo glad I did, because I forgot to post my SOTD ~
L'Artisans' Verte Violette
Aramis Havana tonight, the reissue, which is within a click of the original
"Are you a god?"
"Are you a wizard?"
