    Default SotD Wednesday 19 May

    Good morning!

    I don't layer very often, but now I fancied some "extra lemons" for Etro Shaal Nur, so spritzed some Etro Lemon Sorbet on top.

    Enjoy your day!

    I like the sound of 'Extra Lemons' Tig!

    Today I'm in a fragrance that doesn't get much attention on here. Fragile EDP by Jean Paul Gaultier. A cold tuberose that doesn't smell like tuberose too me. Still I quite like it.

    I'm wearing Anarchy, Long Lost Perfume's version of Donna Karan Chaos. It's been years since I smelled the original so can't reliably compare the two but Anarchy's warm blend of dry spices, woods and incense is working beautifully on this chilly, damp day.

    Take care, all!

    Hello everyone!

    You all smell exceptionally gorgeous today! It's another cool morning here, so I'm in another cool weather favorite, the luxurious L'Or de Torrente ...which completely reminds me of Twolf now....actually, I don't think I have many fragrances that don't remind me of one or another of you anymore! (And to answer your question Wolfie, I was indeed previously aware of M. Pierre Balmain's birthday yesterday, but it had completely gone out of my mind when reaching for and posting about Vent Vert ....at least I thought it had, but I suppose a little green bird must have reminded
    me to wear it!)

    L'Or de Torrente, created by Jean Jacques in 2001
    Top notes - tangerine, lychee, kiwi, and magnolia
    Middle notes - iris, coffee, rose, angelica
    Base notes - vanilla, orchid, white amber, cedar








    Y'all have a wonderful day!

    Slava Zaitsev's Nikita, perfect for a sulky Wednesday in black lipstick, before I have to go to work and be an adult again.

    Pffftt!

    Wearing Patou's Normandie today. This is such great stuff. I wonder why I don't wear it more often.

    Nyneve, I find Insolence difficult myself.

    Have a great Wednesday, everyone!

    Patou Normandie was one of the first scents you turned me on to, VV. A real mind-blowing chypre!

    I'm in a new sample of Diptyque Olene. A jasmine, but I'm really just getting "flowers." (My nose isn't that developed.) They're nice flowers, though! Not too cloying, not too heady, not too shy.

    Happy hump day, all! You smell fabulous!

    Un Jardin Sur Le Nil

    A rich and tangy mango drenched in sunshine.
    A cool breeze over the crushed green stems tickles my nose.
    The wise lotus floats nearby.

    Notes; green mango, lotus flower, aromatic rushes,
    incense, and sycamore wood.

    I put on some Youth Dew parfum this morning but had to wash it off as it triggered my asthma. (That was weird.) I put on a little AdP Iris Nobile edt & that was much better.

    Another steamy day... this will be our situation until October! I'm wearing Apercu. Another lovely blind buy. Sadly it is short lived on me, but it's great for an "at home" scent, I can spritz away all day...
    Of the light florals I'm smelling mostly the rose, over a very tart chypre.
