    Good morning everyoneToday was suppose to be the first day back at work after my eye problem and the summer holiday,but my boss had mixed up the shifts....So it turned out she assumed I shouldn't be there today. It all ended with me going home since I need to study anyway. The eye specialist wasn't satisfied with the healing of my eye yesterday,so now I need to take those eye drops again! REALLY annoying!!!Probably shouldn't read to much,but I feel I have to since the exam is next monday!:O Sotd is Feminite du bois.

    Today I´m in Forbidden Rose by Avril Lavigne


    Notes contain red apple, white peach, pepper, heliotrope, lotus blossom, pomegranate, vanilla, chocolate & sandalwood.

    The rose must certainly have been forbidden, since it is not there.

    Musse, the pic of the Avril Lavigne bottle reminds me of the first Anna Sui with its purple/black colors.

    Today, I settled on Tommy Girl as SotD. It hits just the right note with me on this casual Saturday.

    My skin has been uber sensitive lately, I've been noticing a distinct stinging when I spray my fragrances. It's happened with several, so I think it's me, not the scents. So, I'll wear an oil based scent today. YOSH's sandalwood dream La Contessa.

    RHM, I've noticed stinging/burning this past week, too — just the skin on the inside of the elbow. No redness develops, and the stinging goes away once the alcohol dries off, but still, ouch. Nowhere else on me is it that sensitive.

    Today was soooooo busy. It was Small's 6th birthday party (a couple of weeks early because she'll be in school in Switzerland on the actual day, so we have her Welsh party ahead of time). It went well, only a bit of rain, which was great compared to the monsoon it could have been, lots of lovely guests and chance to catch up with people we haven't seen for a while.

    Anyway, SOTD: mine was vintage Dioressence extrait (appropriate for children's party? who gives a hoot?) and Small was resplendent in Guerlain's Spiriteuse Double Vanille. She's posh, see.

    Hope you all had good days, with cake. xxx

    Givenchy Organza for me this evening - just one teensy spritz. Notes - Bergamot, orange blossom, gardenia, nutmeg, honeysuckle, tuberose, ylang-ylang, jasmine, vanilla, amber, sandalwood, cedar. This one is huge and voluptuous. It might be a bit too much for me, but I love its sweet warmth.

    Hey Quarry, what's up with us? I thought perhaps the fragrances were stinging because I've been in the sun but I always use sunscreen. Weird!

    I was bad, I did not wear La Contessa like I said I would. Instead, I wore modern Chamade edt & lots of it. It was a foreshadowing because later I received a package from a very generous basenoter with a bottle of .... Chamade edt.

    So my SOTE is also Chamade edt but an earlier version. The top is pretty much shot but my favorite part is the drydown, so I am a very happy camper!

    Thank you "T"!

    Since getting my bottle of JM Dark Amber & Ginger Lily, I've often taken a hit of it at night without officially recording it as SotE, but it's time to 'fess up.

    Happy birthday to Wordbird's very posh SMALL.
    Ineespenes, I hope your eye heals soon! How annoying it must be!
    Quarry, don’t you feel better now, having FESSED UP?
    Like your FORBIDDEN rose theory, Musse!
    I forgot to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Comdiva yesterday! Hope it was, indeed, HAAPPY!

    My scent today was Quelques Fleurs vintage by Houbigant. Reminds me of powdery, polleny wild flowers.

    Last night, and tonight, I’m wearing UNE ROSE.
    I love the opening -- don’t laugh, but to me there is this strong blast of acrylic paint -- the kind you squeeze from a tube -- which makes me smile & reminds me of my college studio days. And then, of course, lots of ROSE. :-)

    Actually, I'm just wearing the lotion. The EDP can take on a funny harsh tinge in the opening, on some wearings, and I was just NOT in the mood. The lotion has none of the sharper edges. Lovely.
