    Thumbs up SOTD Thursday 19 August 2010

    Good Morning

    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..."

    On the same vibe with Joe P. -- the holly date every fragrance wearer should know and observe as a public holiday -- August 19. Only I am in Jean Patou L'Heure Attendue, remember Mlle Coco and Jean Patou share a birthday. I tried to tell His Royal Duckness to synchronize in Chanel tomorrow -- he said No, it is Caron, the group voted. I will be in Chanel, my apologies.

    The tooth is doing fine -- I guess, it is not with me any longer. A few years ago I had a brilliant idea -- if they get to keep our teeth, we should be paid. Did not work though.

    Z., I suggest Dana Chantilly as your SotD for "the day".
    E., how in the world did I miss Evangeline Day?
    H., I love you too.

    I don't own any Caron so I might join you in Chanel tomorrow. It's a while since I've worn any.

    Today I'm testing the new Smell of Weather Turning from our gorilla boys. It's a bit odd, but pleasant. Much softer than the usual scent style from Mark and Si. I get a bit of a metallic edge, a lot of coumarin (must be the hay absolute) and there is that minty quality to it too. Not my favourite from the line, but very wearable. I preferred it when the whole room was scented with it at the gallery. My skin makes it a little too sweet.

    Unexpected invite will put me in company with old friends and get me a private tour of the Great Lakes Water Institute and School of Freshwater Sciences plus a second treat of visiting an urban aquaponics/fish farm, Sweet Water Organics, which was created inside an old industrial building.

    Good Morning All. The SOTD is L'Oocitane's 'CALANQUES' limited edition, introduced this month. This is a lovely scent. I would definitely consider this a unisex fragrance. Some have described it as "Fresh, sunny, and aquatic". Others say,"Woody, aromatic" I would agree that it encompasses both descriptions. Notes include;
    Top: Lemon, Mandarin, Lentiska
    Middle: Aquatic Accords, Jasmine, Lentiska
    Bottom: Whitewoods, Cypress, Benzoin Pine Tree
    The only drawback that I've observed is the sillage is pathetically lacking, I will probably purchase the body milk (lotion) for this purpose, only because I really enjoy the frarance.

    I'm liberally sprayed with the extremely realistic Pineapple by Demeter.

    This is a bright and happy smell, though short-lived as most of the Demeters are (so there isn't really time to get tired of smelling like a pineapple.)

    OMG - my fiancé is such a RAT!!

    It seems he wanted to teach me a lesson about my enthusiastic, gleeful presumption regarding a certain perfume I've been wanting for a while, Une Rose. We both love it and he's even asked about it lately; didn't I still like it and was I going to be getting it soon, and why am I messing with all these other rose perfumes when I've found the best one, etc, etc. So you see my side, right? Naturally, I figured I'd be getting it for my birthday, which was Tuesday.

    Well, I should have kept my yap shut but I couldn't help myself. I kept talking and talking about it and even reading 30 Roses' posts about it to him "Oh, she's wearing it again today! Lucky girl - I bet she smells divine! I can't wait to wear mine...we'll be scent-twins, tee hee hee!" I'm such a child when it comes to birthdays and presents. Anyway, I certainly would have reported to you that I was wearing Une Rose yesterday morning had I actually received it for my birthday, but clearly I did not! Pooh! It took extraordinary effort to refrain from asking where the rest of my present was when given beautiful flowers and chocolates, but I managed. As far as he could see I was thrilled and not disappointed in the least...but I was disappointed, and also a bit confused. Had he forgotten? Am I actually not getting Une Rose for my birthday?? How can this be???

    Cut to a couple of hours ago - he called from work and asked me if I would take a couple of shirts to the cleaners (which was an odd request since I go once a week and he never pays any attention to this stuff, anyway...) and what do you think I found underneath these shirts but a beautifully wrapped present with my name on it, and my very own bottle of Une Rose inside - Yaaahoooooo!!! He was going to give it to me last night figuring that one day late was lesson enough, but he forgot! So rather than make me wait until tonight, he let me off the hook and lead me right to it! He's still a rat to be sure, but he's just such a cute, sweet and generous rat!

    My scent of the afternoon is Frederic Malle's dazzling, intoxicating Une Rose! Yay!

    Scent of the Evening

    Hypnotic Poison

    Eau de Toilette layered with the Elixir




    It's been, what? Three months since I've been in this beauty last.
    Way too long, that's for sure. The second I sprayed myself with
    this masterpiece, I instantly forgot all other so-called favourites
    of mine. Nothing, and I do mean nothing, can compare to this!

    I wanna eat myself up when I'm in this confidence booster!

    You folks are always so instructive. I did not know it was Ms Chanel's B-day. This evening, when Mr Ellena's creation has worn off, I will splash on some precious No 19 from a vinatge mini.

    Looking forward to Caron Syncho Day tomorrow, too.

Besides, I probably should break in my new workmates slowly and carefully to all the new scents they're going to be experiencing...

    I am glad to be here. These last few days I've had a very hard time trying to log-in here. I am not sure if it is the site or my computer. Oh well. Today I wore Poiver S____ by Hermes. I liked it but it is so light. Yesterday I wore 24 Faubourg (very nice), and the day before Osmanthus Interdite (lovely!).

    Evangeline, what a great gift! I think Une Rose is the best, and I'd be thrilled if my husband surprised me with a bottle!
