    Thumbs up SOTD Tuesday 03 August 2010

    Good Morning everyone. Have all a nice Tuesday

    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..."

    My carded rub'n'sniff sample of the fairly new TM Womanity has arrived, I applied it earlier before the shower and I am glad I did since I can't wait to scrub off all that synthetic sweetness and synthetic musk. They did not get enough figs or caviar in my little packet.

    Will probably be Kenzo Fleur de The, from Tao Lady's stash.

    As nice a tuberose as any you'll find. Sweet as sugar served with a glimmer of salted butter.
    I may bore of it and apply something over top later.

    Thanks everybody for the hugs and well wishes. We are fortunate indeed that things turned out as well as they did, because it all looked so dire at first.

    This morning I am going to dig out of all this house work, wash my sweet puppoos, and head off to the outlets in hope of finding some shoes for my mommy of the bride costume (I say costume as I feel like such an imposter in a "gown").

    Anyway, I will start off in Guerlain Vetiver and then go with Chantecaille Tiare for my excursion.

    Tdem, I don't care for that name either. Womanity? Do they have Manity for men? I understand that after Angels and Aliens he may have wanted to plant his feet on the ground, but still.

    Hypnotic Poison. It smells softer, airier (is there such a word?) and less sweet in today rainy weather.

    I think you speak for many a woman.

    The sweet Kilian tuberose sparked a craving for Mitsouko, so I layered on that, then felt a need for something more. More! You say? Yep, a touch of Fragonard Rose de Mai (courtesy of my love, ComDiva) joined in. I think I smell rather okay.

    I tried to log on last night, but could not. Oh well. My SOTD yesterday was the new Lubin Itasca and today is Lubin Inedite. Liked them both, but I think I like Itasca better.

    I've been covering myself in another EL creation - Beyond Paradise - for the last two days. I'm on quasi-holiday this week (have to keep up with critical calls and emails, but I am actually taking hols!). Doing laundry, playing computer games and packing for a long weekend away on the coast.

    Somehow this scent seems less frightening at the moment. I think once I accepted that it was like an android bouquet, I really truly felt comfortable in it. I loved it enough to buy it, don't get me wrong - but it's a little bit of a mindbender and you have to get past the idea of 'expensive fabric softener'.

    Of course what better scent to wear for laundry day

    That was such a lovely YR scent, so much more original than their current summer fragrances. Why did they discontinue it?

    Missed you all yesterday! Hope Tuesday is going (went?) well.

    Big hug to Zibeline from me, too. Sounds like things are back on the upswing for everyone? Will be hoping for your soon-to-be-SiL's full and speedy recovery. Hope the shoe shopping is a nice little break (do bridemaids still do that "dyed-to-match" shoe thing? eek)

    Hey, without reading this thread earlier this morning (as I often do), I chose the same SOTD as Zibeline!

    Chantecaille Tiare

    Perfect for this damp morning!

    I didn't get a chance to mention that yesterday was my little girl's 1st day of 1st grade! She was SO excited! At school, she met her new teacher and sat at her desk BEAMING. The day went really well, and the excitement has still not worn off.

    This morning she says "I'm going to do HOMEWORK for 1st grade! Yeah!" Big smiles. DH and I chuckled, but after we dropped her at her classroom, I said, "you know, it's going to sound funny, but I remember being little and being SO excited to get homework". I guess to the little ones, it's a "big kid" thing to get homework, and it must sound cool.

    Wow, I've been busy today. Just getting the time to post now...

    This a.m. bright and early for a Boot Camp / spinning class at the gym it was Ma Griffe (new EdP) by Carven (thanks lilybelle!). I know, not exactly the butchest scent for a 7 a.m. gym routine, eh?

    After a shower and at the office it was:

    Sous le Vent by Guerlain



    Since...well I got my new bottle of it in the mail yesterday so today I can douse myself without feeling guilty. Today the SLV smelled jasmine prominent at certain moments, which was a new facet I never quite recognized before. Neat!

    This afternoon it is:

    Eau de Guerlain by Guerlain

    Hermes - Caleche EDT (vintage) from a very generous Basenoter (THANKS Sweetie!). Previously, I've only worn the newer Caleche (have it in every strength because I love this scent so much). I have to say that this vintage version is amazingly smooth and lovely! I can't believe how beautiful it is. Sighhhhhh......
