    Default SOTD Friday September 10, 2010



    Tonight I will be holding an education/presentation seminar on Acqua di Gioia for around 50-60 people, so naturally, my SoTD will have to be Acqua di Gioia.

    NOTE: It has been mentioned on two occasions this week that I am starting these threads "too early". I think the reason why members have this impression is because the BN post clock is/may be set to Grant's local time in the UK. When I started this post today, it was at 8 or 9 am West Australian time, which is 7 hours AHEAD of London. So can we please cool it with the "Why are you posting so early" PMs, kids? Thankxverymuch.

    Haha...the sulky little gurl looks remarkably like you, Ducky!

    What's the difference between Acqua di Gio and Acqua di Gioia?

    Acqua di Gio is a men's fragrance, with a female counterpart, and Acqua di Gioia (Water of Joy) is an all new womans fragrance. You can read a review and learn about it on my blog here:

    I loved the smell of Acqua di Gio. Without bothering about the gender, I thought offhand that it was for women.

    However, I hate the fact that everyone seems to own(& use) at least 1 bottle.

    Also, with the kind of inflated perfume prices in my country(to give you an idea : 100ml of Midnight Poison EDT costs the equivalent of $124.44 currently!), I'm better off using the cash to scour eBay for worthy fume-vestments...

    What a strange SOTD thread this is turning out to be!
    If I had any DIVA by Ungaro I would put it on, but as I don't
    I shall wear Manifesto by Isabella Rossellini for the synchronised
    Friday.

    Happy Birthday to Shades and Ted (Indie_Guy) -- and many fragrant discoveries. Let your day be filled with joy and faith, good people and nice smellies. It is a priviledge to know you both.

    Personally, I do believe that today's pictures are mauvais tone, except for Gioia and Joe's. Not like I am going to report it to the mods or anything, but please use better judgement -- seems like SotD threads are the ones geeting most attention, including that from the esteemed guests.

    Joe -- good luck with the walk tomorrow, it is an important mission you are involved with!

    Madeleine Vionnet for my celebrity scent today.

    In honor of synchronized friday celeb scent, and tomorrow's final of the US Open tennis tournament (the last Grand Slam of the year), I am wearing Gabriela Sabatini by Gabriela Sabatini.

    Gabby won the US Open in 1990, finally beating Stefi Graf, for her first and only major win. She started her own line of perfumes, using her status and her model good looks.

    Thanks for all the visuals today guys! VERY FUN!

    Happiest birthday wishes to Shadesofblue!

    I'm not wearing a celebrity frag today - but I am giving one as a gift. FANCY, (Jessica Simpson) to a co-worker for her birthday!
    My own frag is Miss Dior Cherie. (Which makes me feel young and spritely - like a celebrity!)

    Roberto, you romantic! ♥ (I love that pic!)

    Interesting Scent Synch choices so far today.

    Ubu, I think gifting a celebuscent definitely counts.

    I’m wearing SJP Lovely this morning.


    Off to check out Sorceryofscent’s blog on Acqua di Gioia. I love Acqua di Gio for women. I don’t know the men’s version, although I’m sure I must have smelled it on someone at some point.
