Hubert de Givenchy
Thread: SotD - Friday the 25th of June
Morning gals ...
I'll start off our syncronized friday in
Les Exclusifs de Chanel
CUIR de RUSSIE
Hubert de Givenchy
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..."

I have really fallen for this wonderful scent!
Wish you have a Wonderful Friday
I like Berries in Outspoken by Fergie

" I think part of my success as an editor came from never worrying about a fact, a cause, an atmosphere. It was me—projecting to the public. That was my job. I think I always had a perfectly clear view of what was possible for the public. Give 'em what they never knew they wanted." DiANA VREELAND
Still up. Insomnia, and what is worse, I've told my Mom we're taking her to the Bronx Zoo today so can't sleep in.
No idea what I'll wear today but it better be something invigorating to keep me awake! Good thing I won't be the one driving.
My SOTD is Paloma Picasso Minotaure. Happy Birthday Divatologist!
Top notes are aldehydes, coriander, tarragon, fruity notes, galbanum and bergamot.
Middle notes are jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, rose and geranium.
Base notes are sandalwood, tonka bean, amber, musk, vanilla and cedar.

I'm in the Chanel Cuir de Russie sychronised pong club.
Good morning all! I envy mumsy and Le Grand Duc their Chanel.
I'm wearing the terrifically tacky Harajuku Lovers Lil' Angel - the new formulation, with the vanilla and hints of lemon and orange. I wore it the other day and somebody told me I smelled like a cake, which made me smile. Although maybe it shouldn't have!
I've had a couple of great bargains recently! Guerlain's Champs-Elysees for £15 at TKMaxx, and SJP's Lovely for £15 at Debenhams. It was on sale - 50ml! I'm a bit confused about this scent on the high street - the Boots I go to has to order it in per customer now, and Debenhams I doubt will be stocking it much longer. I think NYC might be the replacement. The sales assistants I was chatting to were very puzzled, because Lovely is still such a big seller.
Guerlain's Shalimar (edp.)

Still in Odalisque on this Midsummes Eve. Going camping in our boat, so no more fragrance until tomorrow when I'm home again.
In sync with Chanel Cuir de Russie. Smells like a million bucks, so elegant and smooth.
Happy birthday to Divatologist!
Happy Friday, all!

Pure White Linen for me today.
Happy Birthday, Divatologist!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DIVATOLOGIST!!!
Feeling elegant today in Caron Alpona. Just gorgeous.
Alpona notes: Lemon, grapefruit, bergamot, rose, orange, jasmine, orchid, thyme, patchouli, myrrh, cedar, sandalwood, musk and oakmoss.
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
I'm in Ninféo Mio for our day at the Zoo!
Montana Eau de Peau for me today.
Ah well its Le Dix for me today. The old fashioned aldehydes with their powdery softness seem to hold up so well in the heat.
Aramis Havana today.

What? It's Divatologist's birthday again? Well, one of these years you're going to have to start looking older!
Wearing some of the last of some vintage Cuir de Russie. Yes, elegant and only mildly leathery (no horsing whinnying in the background a la the mention of Frau Blucker). Considering how I have virtually no history of knowing perfumes, I still immediately peg this as belonging to an upper-class setting from the 1960s. Representative of Chanel's restraint, it doesn't jump all over the olfactory map, which gives it an air of serenity.
(Honey just walked in. "What are you wearing? Whew. Whew." )

I'm trying PG's Bois de Copaiba on the left arm, for something completely different. It's a little too medicinal/camphorous to me. Is that the Myrrh? Still, to my untrained nose it seems very well constructed..??
On the other arm is a sample of Divine's L'Infante. It's a beautiful floral, and I'm not usually that enamored with straight up florals. Maybe my tastes are broadening, because everytime I bring my wrist to my nose I can't help but smile. This scent makes me happy!
Happy birthday Divatologist- have a great year ahead !
Golconda by JAR , for me this morning.
Have a great Friday - TGIF , folks !
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
Happy Birthday Sista' Diva!!! ((raising champagne glass in the air))
For me today it's:
Eau Radieuse by Humiecki & Graef (thanks NEoTY26!)
You can almost hear the perfumer, Laudmiel, giggling when you spray this strange juice on. Green-banana-mint-plastic-bubble-gum-cologne!! Bwah-ah-ah...!!
Happy birthday Divatologist.
I'm wearing Eau des Merveilles today from a sample until my full bottle arrives.
I'm wearing Tocca Cleopatra today.

Happy Birthday, Diva! Wishing you a fantastic year ahead!
I'm feeling all cool and fresh in Roger & Gallet Shiso. Nice!
Oh, yeah, happy b-day, Diva!
Happy birthday Divatologist! May your day be heavenly scented
Today I'm wearing Chanel Cuir de Russie (EDT, new Exclusifs) for scent synchronisation Friday (thanks Mumsy !) CdR was basically my signature scent throughout Winter and Spring, and I'd just resigned myself to taking it out of summer rotation. But I couldn't pass up wearing my beloved today. As long as I stay in air conditioned indoors (a reason to enjoy being at work today!) I'll smell grand.
Happy Friday to everyone!

I'm in Keiko Mecheri's heavenly White Petals today - simply the prettiest straight-up floral that I own. The notes are white peony, white camellia, May rose, narcissus, Lily-of-the-Valley and "precious" woods.
Happy Birthday Divatologist - wishing you all the best for a brand new year!
And welcome to Basenotes, mountainear!
Y'all have a wonderful day!
