    Thumbs up S O T D Thrusday 24 July 2010

    Hello Ladies, Good Morning. Have all a marvelous day

    VETIVER



    LORENZO
    VILLORESI
    FIRENZE
    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..."

    It is almost my bedtime, but I thought I would post what I plan to wear when I get up later on -- Ava Luxe No. 23 -- since I haven't been posting regularly as of late.

    Take care, all!

    Lanvin, Eau Arpege new on the left and Eau Arpege vintage on the right. The new one isn't a bad rendition of the old, a bit lighter and more fresh smelling actually as the musty base notes of longevity are missing or changed. I'm smelling something like light Jasmine or lily in the new one and not so in the older. Makes it more modern....but I love them both. I think this has an entry as one of my top ten.

    I couldn't sleep a wink last night. Maids are coming at 8:00 to do the floors, bathrooms, etc. I hope. I meant to call the company yesterday and confirm, but I forgot so that has me anxious. Then DH's mother arrives later this evening from Boston. And the baby shower is this Saturday (organized and hosted by a dear friend here in our home, since I'm on bed rest). Also our new bedroom furniture should (and BETTER) arrive tomorrow or Saturday. I spoke with one of the salespeople Tuesday who says our furniture has just been unloaded off a boat in the port of San Francisco and cleared customs. He was going to have the delivery scheduler call me yesterday. That person didn't, and I forgot to call them as well. Gah, such a flake!

    Last Saturday one of my girlfriends from high school became a grandmother, and Tuesday another girlfriend popped her baby two weeks early while her husband is out of town (tragic family emergency, as if the poor fellow doesn't have enough going on).

    I need to wear Donna Karan Chaos today. Nothing else will do. Everything will be fine.

    p.s.~ I posted some new pics of me and my belly on the Members' Pictures thread yesterday.

    Philosykos today. It smells fresh, clean, woody and soapy to me. Perfect on a really muggy day.

    Today I needed some "pluck" (been feeling a little angsty at work lately, a supervisor with whom I have a great work relationship is off on "detail" and a coworker/mentor is moving to another facility soon) so I'm in my trusty Bandit + Bulgari Black "Butch Mix")... which is one of my faves as it makes me feel like I'm wearing black leather.

    Here it is Thrusday again already!

    "Everything will be fine. Everything will be fine." Just keep chanting, Heartwood. What did Taolady once try to teach me about "control" being an illusion? (I still think it's a nice illusion.)

    Client coming over. Should that influence my choice of scent? Nah. Although Nanadebery Green — what's not to like?

    Eep!! I must have forgotten to set my alarm - is it July already??

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in Flora Danica today. Released in 1980 and long-discontinued, it's not so easy to come by, but I'll still recommend seeking this out to any fans of lush, full-bodied aldehydic floral chypres. It's posh and elegant and super-creamy, but it also has a powdery aspect...actually, maybe velvety is a better way to describe it. And for what it's worth, it smells blue to me, a rich, deeply saturated slate blue. The luxurious floral accord isn't easy to pick apart, which is very characteristic of this era of complex floral chypres, and one of the things I love most about it. It's clean (some might think soapy) and has a definite mossy green component, as well as a hint of warm fur - I suppose some might perceive the civet as skank, but I don't - I get kitty fur that's been in the sun. The chypre base gives it elegance and gravity - this doesn't strike me as a casual fragrance. Very femme and romantic, but also very smooth and polished.

    Top notes: aldehydes, leafy green, bergamot, peach
    Middle notes: rose geranium, orris, jasmine, lily of the valley
    Base notes: vetiver, oakmoss, sandalwood, civet, amber, benzoin






    Heartwood - Yikes! Your post made me anxious for you, but of course everything will be fine! I have my doubts about how much bed-rest you're actually getting, though!

    Twolf - smaller bottles of Les Exclusifs feels like a dream come true - is it really going to happen?? Do you, does anyone, have any more details about this?




    Y'all have a fabulous day!

    Heartwood, sending you calming, soothing, all-will-be-well vibes. xo

    Parfums de Nicolai Cococabana
    Notes: coconut, bitter oranges, ylang ylang, tuberose, cedarwood, palm

    I have yet to encounter a de Nicolai frag I dislike and I can add this one to the list. Delightfully tropical but fresh and natural smelling, not candied/synthetic.

    Best to all!

    Hi everyone! We've been busy & I am going back for an outpatient proceedure tomorrow. The hits just keep on coming...yep. Well, the girl will be finished with school finally next Monday & looks like she'll maintain Superintendents List, might even pull all A's for this last marking period. We'll see.

    Our mother/daughter road trip this year will be to go gem mining in North Carolina. We're psyched!

    I put on a little CSP's Coco Extreme but it's a bit too suntan lotiony for my tastes. I'll pass the sample along. Sofie is wearing HL's "G" today.

    Good morning all. I'm being lazy today, but I'm off to the Bath and Body Work's semi-annual sale. I need to replenish my supply of the classics, 'Brown Sugar and Fig' and the lovely 'White Tea and Ginger'. I've found if I layer the shower gel, body lotion and splash. I can maintain those delicious frags. But for now, second day, SOTD is the intoxicating Avon's, 'IN BLOOM' and oh yes ladies, it does indeed have the note of magnolia, have a good day ya'all.
