    Default SotD - Tuesday the 29th of June

    Morning, madames ...



    FLEUR DU MALE



    Within days this has gone from being disgustingly
    urin'ish on me, to being one of my favourite frags
    pour Homme

    diptyque
    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..."

    The hot, hot weather has begun to cool slightly, after a heavy rainfall
    last night, and the air is mercifully clearer.

    I am layering Etro Heliotrope body lotion with Heliotrope
    Blanc by Piver.

    I'm in the teeny-bopper fizzy pop of Ralph by Ralph Lauren again today. It covers up the smell of self tan rather nicely (I've not used self tan in YEARS, but I seem to have gone rather freckly despite wearing SPF30, so I though what the heck; might as well even out...).

    Thanks to a lovely friend,

    Roberto Cavalli Oro

    top notes: magnolia, coriander, iris, pepper, apple, bergamot
    middle notes: apricot, patchouli, cinnamon, freesia, cedar
    base notes: sandalwood, amber, musk, vanilla, guaiac wood

    This is wonderful and, with its fruits/soft spices/woods combo, reminds me of Dior's Dolce Vita. Not an exact replica (I'm getting a lot of coriander here which is absent in DV) but similar in style. Plus it's by Maurice Roucel, and he can do no wrong in my book.

    Best to all!

    I woke up craving Après L'Ondée, which is odd because I've never been able to warm up to it. Maybe it's the weather...it's been so hot here that I can now appreciate this cold beauty. I wish it would rain! A huge gusty dark cloud blew over us yesterday and released a quick shower, and then was quickly gone. We could use a good soaking rain here.

    Last night I dreamed I was in Europe (have never been there, BTW), and I was circling a Guerlain counter that had a little stream of scented water running in a display on the countertop. I picked up the bar of soap the woman behind the counter said contained the scent given off by the water and smelled it. I can't remember the scent now, but I know I smelled it. The bar was wrapped in simple paper and was shaped liked a shortened stick of butter. I've never seen soap like that, but I thought it was darling. I then moved on to see Germany. The dream was quite long and involved, and I won't bore you with other details, but I was taking pictures all along the way.

    Hello everyone!

    It's a chilly morning here, so I'm in the warm ambery balsam of Balenciaga's Prelude, my absolute favorite from this house. This might be a turn-off for some, but what initially attracted me to Prelude was its resemblance to Avon's classic Skin-So-Soft bath oil...it must be the balsam. Stunning, unique and completely unisex -this smells wonderful on a man!

    Top notes - aldehydes, allspice, bergamot
    Middle notes - carnation, cinnamon, jasmine, ylang-ylang, rose
    Bottom notes - Tolu balsam, amber, patchouli, benzoin, civet, vanilla





    Hey tdem and cello - you girls smell divine! Heartwood initially piqued my interest in Oro and I'm so glad she did - there are lots of things to love about it! But I seem to have a completely different take on it. To me it's a creamy and warm predominantly iris scent, which I love as iris is usually quite cold. But how interesting! I would have never thought to compare it to Dolce Vita, but now I'll have to give them a wrist-by-wrist test!

    Quarry - What a marvelous dream! I love having perfume dreams, especially when they feature a scent that I'm not aware of or familiar with. That always stays in the back of my mind as I'm researching scents, and sometimes I discover they actually exist! I dreamt of Tabac Aurea before I'd ever heard of Sonoma Scent Studio.


    Y'all have a fantastic day!

    I'm laughing over C Roses's story too, Quarry...but I can understand how it isn't very funny if one is stuck there listening to the racket!

    I recall a long-ago November in Africa, on a hot, humid night when the flying termites were emerging from the ground and the frogs were going crazy with them. I was trying to sleep, window open as always, and the frogs started calling. One called "Mwa-ah", and another made high pitched trills in response. A whole chorus of frogs made more and more mwa-ahs and trills. Sleep eluded me.

    Exasperated, I went to the window and shouted "Quiet!"

    It worked! All was still and peaceful. For about 15 seconds.

    Then...in the darkness... a tentative "Mwa-ah!"
    And the chorus began again.


    There is this marvelously moisturizing and great-scented lotion I got at Target, "Grapefruit Sky" Hydrate body lotion by giovanni. I wish they made a spray scent in this fragrance...hmmm...must research, maybe they do?

    Meanwhile, it's a citrusy fragrance for me today: The Thymes Limón. Sometimes I layer this with L'Occitane Honey & Lemon Shimmering EdT but today I'll enjoy the black currant note undiluted.

    Our own black currant bushes are loaded with ripening berries, which make for tasty eating, alongside our blueberries. I love this time of year. Roses, berries...all good.

    What a great dream, Quarry ! I dreamt recently about getting a great sample of Cruel Gardenia at a Guerlain boutique .

    It seems we have all been suffering from heat . Today, it's a tiny bit cooler- about 100 degrees F in the valley . The fridge is konking out so I have the Sears guy coming this afternoon to diagnose and fix it , hopefully ! Meanwhile I have huge blocks of ice in the fridge .

    This morning I am wearing Fresh Hesperides again. I do love it. Stay cool everyone .

    Quarry, love your dream, and 30 Roses, love your "Quiet!" story. Now I have to go back and read about the "Oy vey" bird. Sounds like s/he'd be right at home in my house.

    Today I'm wearing Caron Poivre surprisingly well. This classic beauty works undexpectedly well in the warm, humid weather. Must be the bracing carnation/clove combination - simultaneous heat and cooling elements - like menthol.

    Have a wonderful day, everyone!

    What wondrous and then wacky story, 30 Roses. Literally LingOL. Would prefer to smell your landscape today than mine. I took the garbage out front and noticed three stink bugs on the vining crops. I swept them off by hand and stepped on them. The briefest touch has impregnated my hands with their gruesome scent (it's kind of sweet and green). Have washed my hands four times now, so I think I'll be able to eat our lunch of muffuletta without wearing latex gloves.

    Pomander, we could be so wonderfully bad for each other.

    Haunani, I am going to derive much vicarious pleasure from the dawn of your retirement, so go ahead and flaunt the experience.

    I disliked this when I first tested it, but I'm coming around to it today. The plum note mixed with the aldehydes smells like a chypre soda pop. Funny how when you give a scent a full wearing, rather than spray on your arm, it's a totally different experience.

    Welcome Dawnska! Good to see you here.

    Quarry, I really enjoyed your dream sequence.

    I'm wearing Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte today. It's become my favorite for wearing in the heat. This way I get to hoard my #19, or at least that's how I am justifying the purchase in my own mind. Eau Verte does garner lots of compliments, which is always unexpected but nice when it happens.

    I smelled TM's Womanity yesterday an really, really liked it. It is going to be difficult to describe. Calling it a "skin" scent underates it. I've certainly never smelled anything like it: salt/figs/woods/skin. Wonderful!

    Shy, we love you and your unpredictability nontheless. We even love your Kai here -- as long as YOU get to wear it.

    Dropped by to post after a very busy and stressful day. And I'm in a hurry to get my internet stuff done before tonight's TV "Deadliest Catch" comes on. I've enjoyed all the stories today ... I'm wearing Success Is A Job In NY.

    Scent twin (or twit, as the case may be) with Lilybelle in Apres L'Ondee EDT. It' felt perfect when I applied this morning- when it was a foggy California day- and it still hanging in there 8.5 hours later.

    Hi Mimi. @Raindropsparkle--thanks for the welcome. I'm not exactly new, just so old I seem new to the younger generation. I'm retro.

    knit_at_nite- wow ! Apres L'Ondee struggled to last on my skin - poof in 15-20 minutes.

    Shycats- Retro is good ! Welcome !
