    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.

    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.

    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??

    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...

    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.

    I thought I was gonna kill myself in those shoes... But they're actually "comfy" (for heels, that is... )... As for the hair, they did a GREAT job!!! It's totally me!!! I *need* to have funky hair, even when my outfit is boring... Hair can get sooooo incredibly boring here in Belgium... Everyone wears the same cut styled in the same way... I'm NOT everyone!!! Ergo, I need funky hair...

    I wore Fleurs de Citronnier all day... It seemed to fit the "casual" of the evening and the happiness I was feeling... Black Orchid, which I'm wearing today, would have been too much yesterday...

    I didn't learn a thing about their scents, but I learned that Susannah smokes, not Trinny, and that they're both really sweet...

    When I was bigger I would wear baggy clothes... And the baggier, the better... I guess I still do (did), so tight makes me still a little bit uncomfortable despite the fact that I'm a normal EU42 (UK14). And I got loads of advice! On length, shoes, tops, color... I even asked if I could wear skinny jeans! Hubby bought me a pair and I was reluctant... Tried them on, and they looked... Good? Yeah... I guess they did...

    The divine Ms B!
    IMO:
    *The old frames fit your face nicely, and can still work for you at more conservative occassions- but new frames make a bold contemporary and cheerful fashion statement.
    *The outfit is definately not too tight
    * You have the most georgeous SKIN!

    Ok, as a knitter, I am curious about the cute scarf in the outfit. Details please?

    C&A, my dear... ALL comes from C&A, as it was our clothing sponsor... And we could take home everything from them they used on us...

    But I cheated... My jeans were from New Look and I was supposed to return them... I was going to do so but Annie, one of the stylists, told me to secretly put them in my bag to take them home with me... Wasn't she sweet or what? Anyway, I was in love with those jeans... Not too long, not too short... Perfect fit!

    They didn't... But if any, something really close to the skin, as I couldn't smell anything in particular... And probably with low staying power... I also didn't see any of them reapply...

    Did you mention when it is supposed to be broadcast? I've never watched the UK version, but I will certainly go out of my way to see it now!


    eta - those shoes are incredible - love them! And they look like they'll be perfect with that outfit.

    Oh, one more thing - did they make you cry?
