    Default SotD - Thursday the 29th of July

    Good Morning


    Wearing:NEROLI by Annick Goutal !



    Neroli is inspired by weddings, and it symbolizes rural traditions of adornment of brides with beautiful orange blossom, the symbol of purity, innocence, fertility and eternal love.

    This fragrance was created as ode to medieval Italian Princess Neroli. It is very floral and picturesque, composed of orange blossom essence and orange pips. It was designed by Annick Goutal's daughter Camille in 2003 and it was presented as a limited edition unisex fragrance.

    Good Morning!

    I'm in a quiet little fragrance called Angel. I don't know if anyone has heard of it?

    Second day in my wedding fragrance, Guerlain's Attrape Couer...this is truly one of my great "soul scents." I feel embraced all day.
    Speaking of which, hugs to Therese, in admiration of the work that you do, and that your day may go well.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Ineespenes, I was just now thinking about violet fragrances, how hard it is to find the perfect one that seems just right for oneself. Enjoy your Midnight Violet today.

    My SotD is Guerlain's Terracotta Voile D'Ete . Haunani and I both have been getting quite a bit of wear out of this lately, but it's nice year round too.

    Have a g'day, all.

    After a long couple of evenings sampling vetiver scents, I think I can finally say that I do not like vetiver. It's been rough. It has made me run into the arms of my favorite note, IRIS, for comfort. Today I'm enveloped in FM's Iris Poudre. Ahhhh.....

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in ELDO's spectacular Rossy de Palma this morning. I adore the incredible, almost edible (for anyone who's tempted to bite those fragrant and meaty leaves) geranium note almost as much as I adore the Bulgarian rose in this sophisticated and amazing perfume.





    Y'all have a great day!

    Good day, all! Hope you're having a good one. I'm at work and so shouldn't be posting this now, but I can't help myself because I'm wearing my favourite ever, ever, ever:



    It's so not summer-appropriate, but it's been mournfully staring at me for the past couple of days. "Why aren't you wearing me? What did I do to deserve this exile?" And I've been saying, "It's not you, it's me. I just can't handle the heat!" But today I could resist no longer. It's ... really gorgeous. I feel like myself when I wear it.

    I recently purchased a bunch of samples from TPC and decided to try their sample pack where they pick what to give you. It has a few that I had never heard of, so today I'm testing Andree Putnam Preparation Parfumee.



    It is green and peppery so far. It reminds me a little of Un Jardin Sur le Nil + pepper, which makes me like it so much better!

    I don't think I'll wear anything today since I am going to the dentist (boo hoo hoo) and their office killed my perfume last time I went. It always smells so awful in there. So I guess it would be time for me to decant some stuff to get me in better mood before hitting that dentist office

    update: I wore Ma Griffe to the dentist's office, a little bit of new and vintage, and it comforted me greatly during visit! No treatment needed, so that's nice too.

    Coriolan today, all day. (I LOVE, love, love it.) And find it energizing, which I certainly needed today!
    Basenotes lists the top notes as:
    Lemon Tree Leaves, Bergamot.
    ...middle notes as:
    Juniper, Absinthe, Coriander, Nutmeg, Juniper.
    ...and base notes
    Oakmoss, Patchouli, Everlasting Flower.

    It doesn't have vetiver -- for me this is a shock and a change, but who cares? I find it very unisex, definitely a powerhouse and discontinued but still available... and I "only" have two backup 30 ml bottles left (had four of the little beauties) but it will undoubtedly last long enough to become a part of my estate.

    I find this scent to be skillfully crafted and beautiful. Strong, yes, and quite possible to overapply... but why do so many beauties like this get discontinued?

    @Warum ... yeah, that's the way to wear Ma Griffe... the older and newer formulations seem to shimmer against one another!

I spent it doing laundry and baking zuchinni bread. Tonight, I'm experimenting with a zuchinni and sausage casserole. Can you tell that the zuchinni is in abundant supply?

    SotE = Provocative Woman by Elizabeth Arden, one of my favorite fragrances. Most reviewers think it's a snooze, but to me it's clean and warm, and it makes me feel like I'm cozy and jammied up for bed while the storm is outside, so I guess that means it's a comfort scent for me. Looking forward to Lauder Friday tomorrow, though I don't know which one it will be. I'll decide at the last minute. Nightie-night sweeties!
