Thread: SOTD Thrusday 09 September 2010
Good Morning everyone
LE TROISIÉME HOMME
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 Perfumes
Just to add a bit of femininity to all this early morning testosterone, I
am wearing Citizen Queen By Juliette Has A Gun (Kurkdjian.)
Rose, Aldehydes Amber and Leather - wow!

A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
I tried out a sample of Hypnotic Poison Eau Sensuelle yesterday evening. This stuff apparently has the half-life of plutonium, because it's still going strong in the crook of my arm, twelve hours later.
Ergo, I had to choose something that would work with it, and picked vintage Coty L'Aimant.
Vintage No. 5(from 1940s) for me today...
The texture of the musk and the depth is AMAZING!
Yesterday: ICE MEN
Today: Rose d'ete de Rosine
Have a nice day All
Wearing :MADAME ROCHAS VINTAGE EDP thanks to my lovely sister

Chanel Bois des Iles. Beautiful and comforting. Perfect.
Je Reviens. I was reading a John Le Carré novel a couple of weeks ago, and the hero mentions Je Reviens. He recognizes the fragrance on the woman he is walking with, and says it was also his sister-in-law's "weapon of choice" (to himself). I love coming across these perfume references.
Good morning everyone! My SotD is Rush by Gucci.
Sampling Crabtree & Evelyn's new Iris. It does smell just like the colour of the Vespa you can win in their sweepstakes (only if you live on US soil, alas), very purple. Not very Irisy, sadly.
And I want that Vespa!
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
Paris Jardins Romantiques to get me through taking Mom to the Dr. yet again.
I took advantage of the lower temperature today to wear Ambre Russe, my favorite amber.
- I'm wearing and enjoying Chanel's
Am I turning into a Chanel girl after all these years?
Reformulation without information is fraud. Call the police.
Hugs for 30 Roses.
Scent of the morning is the gorgeous Aromatics Elixir.
Was Basenotes down all yesterday afternoon ,evening and night ...or was that just me ?
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
Hope everyone is having a peaceful day!
I am wearing L'Artisan Nuit de Tubereuse. I'm bowled over by how much I love this. Probably the most wearable tuberose I've ever smelled. Wish I would have bought the big bottle!
Last night I did a good sampling of Andy Tauer's Carillon pour un Ange. Also very lovely indeed. Complex and very interesting, very fem. I do like it very much!
I must say that my nose has been pleased the last 24 hours.
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.

Mike, somehow I knew you'd wear this today!
