    Thumbs up SOTD Monday 20 September 2010

    Good Morning everyone

    L’ homme sage



    Parfums DIVINE
    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..."

    Very sleepy Monday morning - I'm in L'heure Bleu to start the day.

    Decided on two fragrances for my trip to San Fran later this week. Only taking Mitsouko and Bois de Violette. I thought 2 bottles would probably get me through, since it's only for 4 days. Can't wait to see my son, though! This will be my first real trip with my son and daughter since they've been "grownups", and my first visit to SF.

    Great week to all!

    OOh, almost forgot to mention:
    tried two of the new Ava Luxe perfumes Sat: the Wild Blackberry Musk and Kashmir Spice. Both are excellent. The Blackberry musk is a berry-like, very comforting musk and the Kashmir Spice has a wonderful clove note. Highly recommend !!

    I am back from vacation, too, freshly showered after some camping and hiking, and ready to be my cool perfumed self. I brought with me 6 samples from DSH, all of them FB worthy, but maybe I am super excited so I decided to take a break from them.

    SOTD: Laila (actually, just a bit of the lotion)

    I bought this one on impulse, because the set (edp, lotion, and mini) came in the cutest blue and white bag. (I know that sounds ridiculous.) The scent itself is very strong (must apply edp very judiciously) - but the lotion is really great. Nice light texture, not sticky, and just the right amount of scent.

    Happy birthday wishes to Mumsy from me, too!

    Hi Leesee, good to see you again.

    I finally bought Narciso Rodriguez' For Her edt (the black bottle), so I've been wearing that all day.

    My weirdness today:
    Sometime during the night I got into my perfume amoire & pulled out most, if not all, of my rose scents. I found them neatly arranged on my dresser this morning & I only vaguely recall doing it. Wasn't there something about people sleep walking or sleep driving when they took Ambien? If so, then I'm sleep perfume arranging!

    Happy Birthday Mumsy!

    Today I wore Sharini Parfum Naturels' Graines de Paradis (for the second time) and it still reminds me of a (particular) Mediterranean foods store I used to frequent, and dries down to something described by a coworker as "foofoo flowery" but to my nose is still spicy and musky. This evening I'm testing (another of the Mystery of Musk scents, which GdP is, too, and this one is also courtesy of Mimi Gardenia) JoAnne Bassett's Sensual Embrace... something in the topnotes is conflicting, I think it's the ambrette because my nose is quite sensitive to that note, and it's overwhelming the topnotes. But I do get a fruitiness also in the top, and the musk settles back a bit. Would take a while to get used to this scent due to the topnotes, but it's good and quite distinctive.

This evening I have tested a sample from a MUA swap (The Pour Un Ete) one one wrist and it's overwhelmed slightly from a decant/transfer leak of Mitsouko on one finger of the same hand.... I smell confusing.

    SOTE -- the newest favorite, Mahjoun by Dawn Spencer Hurwitz.

    Delicious, but not foody, sweet and fresh at the same time, spicy but suitable for a girl who likes it sweet, mild, and kinda romantic

    I'm trying the old Myrurgia mystery fragrance I bought on ebay called My de Myrurgia edt para Ella. As it turns out it smells very much like Jacomo Silences in the beginning, but it's spicier in the drydown. I find it rather masculine and not my type of thing; but it's fun to try a mystery frag. Have a good night, lovelies!
