Central Park by Bond No.9
I tried a sample this weekend and was not impressed. I'm trying to find a time to try it again, but just don't want to....
Let's try this again. My previous incomprehensible post was trying to reply to Twolf and the Womanity issue. Like Twolf, didn't love it and needless to say, not wearing it today. Instead, SOTD is Safran Troublant by L'Artisan. yum.
PM: Lumiere Noire Pour Femme Eau de Parfum by Maison Francis Kurkdjian
Bas de Soie for me.
Hadrien's Wall in Great Britain
From a brand new bottle of EDP direct from Paris!
It seems brighter and fresher than ever.
I could practically drink this tangy lemon on a hot day like this!

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!
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.
In honour of N_Tesla's excellent blind buy today,
I'm wearing Midnight Poison, EdP, to bed!
I'm wearing Bond Success Is A Job In NY today. Still love it! NOT however loving the heat here ... 105 today!
Yesterday I could not sign on. I wore Vanille Sauvage de Madagascar.
Zibeline, I'm glad your future son-in-law is better! Must have been very scary for a while.
Back from the gym . Scent of the afternoon- Carnal Flower.
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
Hi all! Today I'm wearing Magnolia Romana. Yesterday, I had a chance to try Caron Acaciosa, and I was blown away by its beauty!
Zibeline, how awful but a relief that your son-in-law to be will be OK!
Raindrop, I loved hearing about young Raindrop's first day in first grade! :-)
Rose Barbare (Guerlain)
Raindropsparkle ~ Awww, so darling. Thanks for reminding us all what it's like to start first grade.
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
My go to hot-afternoon-scent.
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......
