    Default SotD Thursday 29 April

    Morning all! I'm feeling rather tropical in Virgin Island Water. I could almost drink the lime in this.

    Guerlain's Vetiver 1996 EdT for me today. Never fails to put me in a "young-in-Paris" mood. But most interesting part is maybe that it was the last drops of a bottle. What a rare experience to finish a bottle! Always a bit sad...

    This is a huge, complex, floral, aldehydic perfume created by Jean-Claude Ellena in 1976,
    before he pared down his creations to a more minimalist style. He uses hedione in First, which makes
    the notes luminescent and sparkling, like a jewel from Van Cleef and Arpels store. I find it very French and
    very womanly.

    Will go and work in an oldie but goldie, Privilege EdT from Parfums Privilege kindly shared with me by a nice BNer. Fruity green, demure and business-like floral, not the monstrous type.

    My SOTD is Miller Harris Cuir d'Oranger.

    Notes include orange oil from Valencia, pettigrain from Paraguay and shimmering orange flowers from Tunisia, fused with Egyptian jasmin and orris absolute resting on a rich base of leather with birch tar, Spanish ciste, oak moss and patchouli.

    It's the first day of a warming trend here, so it's time to get out and work on the roses.

    So I need to wear a scent to discourage the bees, Lorenzo Viloresi' Patchouli will be perfect.

    PEE-OH-KNEES!!!

    My ex-boss gave me a big fistful of them sort of in lieu of back pay and they are ablaze in my living room! Oh joy! They are available here only for a week or two.

    Burying my nose in them reminds me that - as much as I love lots of my peony frags - none yet really captures the real thing (for me).

    HOWEVER I'm gonna give them all a shot today - starting I think with L'Occitane's exuberant take...

    Auric Blends Egyptian Goddess. I really should wear this one more often, it's so gentle and pretty. And for around six dollars, it's real bang for the buck: I wore some to bed last night and could still smell it this morning. Extra special bonus: My husband says I smell "delicious" in it. Exact quote.

    Take care, all!

    Coty Muguet des Bois parfum today!

    And I'll be taking Mom shopping for yarn. She decided not to give up knitting and crocheting after all. I'm glad to see her starting to recover from her upheaval and loss.

    TERRE D´HERMÈS




    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Oh, gosh, Tao -- aren't those peonies just GORGEOUS!!! And in season, too. Possibly my favourite of all flowers!

    Well, things are happy here in Soir-land. Thanks no doubt in part to all of your good wishes and vibes last week, I GOT THE JOB!!! I am, naturally, thrilled, though will have to get my head around working just that little bit harder now.

    Further, I discovered today that Nuits de Scherrer *is in fact* the re-named Nuits Indiennes that I loved so very much all those years ago. Thanks to a discounter site, I have today enjoyed the shower gel, body lotion and EdT -- layered loveliness! I wore this scent in the mid-90s and am so happy to have found it again -- a soft oriental, no less. Quite unusual, for me!

    Congratulations soirdelune nice to have one of the good smelling ones get the win.

    I'm frantically trying to figure out how not to talk too much on Saturday. Those of you who know me know how difficult that is for me.
    Maybe a Prozac with my OJ in the morning will help.

    For today I am wearing another new acquisition from Sniffapalooza

    Acqua di Parma Blu Mediteraneo Bergamotto di Calabria

    This really struck me as a nice warm-weather fragrance when I tried it and of many of the things I sniffed at Sniffapalooza the one I kept coming back to.

    Have a Titanic Thursday everyone.

    Taolady, what breathtaking peonies!

    Sending hugs to 30 Roses and Mom. It will be an adjustment for her, but knitting/crocheting is soothing. And you get to make something useful (or not).

    Woohoo, SoirdeLune! I knew you’d get it! Congratulations!

    I’m trying out my new Grès Cabaret today. What took me so long? I love its delicacy and restraint. It’s truly lovely.

    Have a good day, all.

    Bravo to 30Roses & Mom on getting back to yarnwork... Wish I were more skilled with such dextrous stuff, so am in awe of you both already! A dear friend who's also a knitter recently made a truly spectacular *mobius strip scarf* with a combination of multicolored alpaca yarn interspersed with gossamer and jewel toned ribbon yarn. Just gorgeous! Have fun, you two, as you continue to find your emotional balance...

    WAY TO GO ON THE JOB, SOIR!!!! Woo-hoo! Go get 'em, girlfriend. And you smell darn good, too.

    Speaking of smelling good, today I'm all elegant osmanthus, rose and woodlands in Jean Patou 1000.

    1000 notes include: Chinese osmanthus and Bulgarian rose, jasmine from Grasse, sandalwood, patchouli, violet, and May rose.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Tao what gorgeous peonies, your peony sniffin' marathon sounds delightful!

    C Rose, hope you get outta your jury duty quickly, at least you'll be smelling FINE.

    SotMorning for me is Lili Bermuda Oleander EDT. It is a beautiful frag.

    From the Bermuda perfumery website: Elegant and feminine floriental bouquet of muguet, Bermuda Oleander, white orris, pink water lily and hibiscus intertwine with undertone of silkmusk, a hint of vanilla flower.
