    Thumbs up SOTD Wednesday 18 August 2010

    Good Morning Everyone. Wish a Fabulous day to all of you


    Pierre Montale's


    BLUE AMBER
    Eau de parfum



    Blue Amber notes: Italian bergamot, bourbon geranium, coriander, patchouli, vetiver, amber, vanilla
    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..."
    Clarice Lispector ( 1920-1977) - Perfumes da Terra / Earth

    I can still smell last night's INSOLENCE on my arm despite a shower this morning. That didn't stop me applying a new SotD from a sample:

    ETRA ETRO edt

    Notes of Allspice, Jamaican pepper, geranium, Indian sandalwood, rose petals, musk, vanilla.


    Green, spicy, herbal - I could eat it with a nice glas of Sauternes, though the perfume is not too sweet. If it were much sweeter than this I'd try to scrub it in the hope that it didn't linger as long as the tenacious Insolence.

    I applied it almost 4 hours ago, and its distinction and character have not diminished. I hope this effect lasts all day. I'm enjoying this very much. Perhaps my now subdued but still present Insolence is lending it a touch of violet flower power, but I suspect I already find Etra Etro to be full bottle worthy.

    Sestra, I love Etra! It's one of several Etro frags I own and enjoy. I'm not big on perfume layering as a rule but do make an exception with this house: Etra layered with Patchouly is an especially nice combo.

    Greetings tdem, it's lovely to see you again.

    I've fallen in love with Etra on my first wear. I can't remember enjoying my own scent this much in a long time. I smell divine, if I say it myself.

    I have to add that I've inadvertently combined it with last night's Insolence, a dusting of which lingers on my arm depite a shower with lightly iris-perfumed soap this morning . Etra is on my chest and neck, dabbed from a sample vial. It's an unexpectedly wonderful combination.

    I have a sample of Etro Patchouly as well, so tonight I will layer that with Etra as you suggest.

    I wore Ava Luxe LTBL a couple of nights ago. I expected a repeat of the night it kept me wide awake, but not so. I slept like a log after enjoying that gorgeous comforting scent. I didn't get the LTBL love before now.
    My nose feels revived.

    After a day of checking my emails and bank statements to work out why a stray package containing perfume had landed at my doorstep and swearing blind that I was sure I hadn't ordered it and not being able to open it until the mystery was resolved I am now wearing Moschino Couture. My lovely Mum had remembered I'd complimented it on her but couldn't remember what it was at the time. She'd later tracked me down a bottle, but had such an exciting weekend she forgot to tell me to expect it!

    Good Evening


    Trussardi Fresh is a sensual yet subtle floral fragrance for women, which stays very close to the skin. This intimate composition opens with notes of violet leaves, apple, pink pepper and lemon. The heart is a floral bouquet of lily-of-the-valley, rose and jasmine. The base is soft, sensuous and woody, composed of rosewood, cedar, patchouli and mosses.

    Today I was in the mood for something totally new. So... I layered Michael Storer Monk with J. Peterman's E.M. Ca' d'Oro and a few spritzes of Prada Infusion d'Iris. It was really, really nice, and reminded me of New Orleans in its intensity, its longevity, and its slight "dirtiness."

    So for Wednesday I was at work as a (slightly overperfumed) sexy THANG thankyouverymuch!

    This worked wonders on my self-esteem and general MOXIE, by the way.

    Your day will come. I don't think there'll be much relaxing until it is over. And DH had a "wonderful" idea: why not expand the rehearsal dinner to include lots more people and have it at the house! Brilliant, huh? I am dying to cook a huge dinner and run back and forth to the kitchen and clean up til midnight the day before the wedding...no way! We had a little chat and I refused. Rehearsal dinner will not be Chez Z.

Rehearsal dinner will not be Chez Z.
    Good for you Zibeline! Boundaries! It's all about boundaries. (unless of course you LIKE parties that YOU cater... and I'm guessing the answer to that is a resounding NOOOOOOOO!!!!! and lots of screams.)

    Vintage Monsieur Rochas tonight
    Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
    Like days of old. Lighting the spark of love that fills me
    with dreams untold..--Twilight Time

    Well certainly not the evening before the wedding! And what perfume to wear for the wedding?!

    Evangeline, I love Diabolo Rose as well!

    Quarry, I liked Ninfeo Mio until it dried down to "Eau de Yankee Candle Store"!


    My order of three 15 ml splashes from Demeter arrived today and I'm trying out all three on skin.

    Pineapple is totally realistic and yummy; I'm going to try layering it with something citrusy.

    Dandelion is deliciously green and smells like lying in the grass in the sun. Very nice!

    • "Demeter Naturals" 100% Natural Lilac EdT (http://www.demeterfragrance.com/Prod...?ProductID=898) smells like anything but lilac. I've had it on nearly two hours and I do not get even a whiff of lilac. Early on, I got some floral notes (jasmine?), then (briefly) cloves, and now it reminds me somewhat of Rose Kashmirie-- it is also reminding me of the smell of original Chapstick. There is a creaminess to it that doesn't sit well with me, but others may like it.
    edit: After 3 hours, the creaminess subsided and I got a bit of ?night-flowering jasmine?

    But if you are looking for lilac, the also-available Demeter (not 100% natural) Lilac cologne (http://www.demeterfragrance.com/Prod...ProductID=1188) is quite a good lilac soliflore. (Not the best one, IMO-- that would be Highland Lilac of Rochester.) It's linear and a little powdery but very pleasant, wearable and long lasting for a Demeter.

    Wow! I'm very late here today. My SotD is Guerlain Derby, thanks to Primrose who kindly shared a sample.

    This is a beautiful fragrance, smooth and subtly blended. I get sweet woods, moss, and a killer vetiver ending. Wow.
