    Thumbs up S o t D Sunday 18 July 2010

    Good Morning everyoneA very happy Sunday
    To face a very warm day, nothing better than this fabulous Eau de Cologne

    Alvarez Gomez's

    AGUA DE COLONIA CONCENTRADA


    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..."

    Violette Precieuse by Caron (thank you Ubuandibeme!)



    I love the colour purple anyway and this scent is so beautiful.

    I've been in a testing mood lately, but this morning is another failure. Kai EDP - reminds me of being a kid and putting on someone's White Shoulders. I haven't smelled that in many years, but this is what it reminds me of. I'm pretty much giving up on white florals - just not genre that I care for.

    I have a barely used mini sample of Eternity for Men After Shave Balm, that someone gifted me (?) and I never use it, so today (fresh from a shower, after a morning run) I slapped some on my shaved neck and upper chest/arms. I used to wear EFM a bunch when I was in my 20's, I forgot how refreshing the central aquatic accord can be, especially when your skin is hot and you crave something refreshing. But then I thought...what scent am I going to wear to complement it (I don't own the EdT of EFM)...so, this one popped to mind and I'm wearing it:

    Vetiver Extreme by Guerlain



    The combination is wonderful. The Guerlain vetiver (that we all know and love) has that far-off-whiff-of-locker room that blends nicely with the fresh/aquatic whiffs of EFM.

    Off to brunch!

    Nice to see Chaya! We’ve missed you round here lately.

    Quarry, don’t feel guilty. This morning’s sermon at church (guest priest, as our regular is on sabbatical) was all about just *being* as God meant us to be, without mental gyrations about what we should be *doing* all the time. That’s a Christian homily I can get along with.

    It’s so hot but at least the dog got a good walk this morning, so I feel a little less guilty about her (and my) lack of exercise. Now we’re just lying around *being* and eating, too.

    My SotD is Shalimar Eau Légère (thanks very much, Arwen_Elf), which I had tried when it came out several years ago and haven’t seen since. This is a very, very nice modernized version of Shalimar, in the sense that Eau Première is a very, very nice modernized version of No. 5. I think it’s well done, but I’ll need to re-spritz soon.

    I hope everyone is enjoying the day.

    Adding: Scent Siblings with Musse today, I see! Not a good Basenotes day for me today, I keep getting thrown off the site.

    Milton Bradley should have come out with a game called Guilt. Most of us already know how to play.

    Feeling half guilty now: Made us a lunch of a big salad (followed by mint chocolate-chip ice cream).

    in the 80's F here today, felt like wearing Hermes Eau de Merveilles, which was very nice for the live stage play I just saw (work related outing)
    Let me tell you, MacBeth at our local "former church turned into a playhouse everything done on a shoestring budget " venue but no one in the cast over 18 years old makes it challenging to buy into the darkness of the piece. But the kids get very high marks for enthusiasm and effort.

    Happy Sunday evening all!

    I wore Nanette Lepore. It was too saccharin sweet on this hot humid day. During my walk at the beach, I was wishing I wore something more refreshing. I think this fragrance works best in the cool days of fall for me. I'll have to retry it then.
