    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.

    Sampling Kilian Beyond Love Prohibited
    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.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm still in roses, the spicy rich roses of ELDO's Rossy de Palma.





    Y'all have a great day!


    Zibeline - I'm so glad to hear that things are turning out better than they seemed - what a relief! Sending more good wishes to you and yours.

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

    Hope your day went well, mine did.

    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.

    (((Zibeline))) I hope you find the perfect pair of shoes!

    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

    Wore Bath & Body Works Cherry Blossom (original one) last night for my Flamingo Flyby zoo promotion at the baseball field.

    Today I'm wearing Premier Figuier Extrême by L'Artisan. I love the fig and flowers in this one.

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