    Default SotD - Wednesday September 22nd 2010

    Since receiving my latest shipment, I've been like a kid in a candy store, sniffing this, inhaling that, opening a bottle, caressing another...

    So much so that it's hard to decide which scent to wear, with everything so new and so try-worthy!

    But after much dalliance, I finally settled on:




    Partly in honour of the lovely people here in BN who obviously love this lady to bits.
    (I'm actually of the opinion that the lady above looks a little like Sadako of 'The Ring' fame)


    Mine is the parfum concentration, which I applied at around 8:15am, and now,coming close to 11:00 am, it's peachy notes are still evident. No mean feat considering how enthusiastically my skin absorbs scents away!

    What a glorious opening salvo from this classic!

    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..."

    Sisley, Soir de Lune.
    I have an addiction problem about this fragrance... Whenever I use one of my other favorites i keep yearning for the Soir the Lune. So I will just let it run it's course and keep on wearing it until I'm ready for something else again....

    I meant to try Lalique Encre Noire Pour Elle again today, but decided I needed something with a more definite presence to last all day. So I'm wearing

    VOL de NUIT Parfum

    I'm not enjoying it. My nose now protests against the endless petrol fumes. I don't get on with über Guerlainade, so I used to like this perfume precisely because the petrol note distinguished it from other Guerlains, but I think my tastes are changing.

    Mitsouko parfum faded out by 2 pm(after a bath) so I refreshed with a SotE :



    Surprisingly long-lasting is LHB EDT...5 hours and the powdery base is still there!

    I'm going to visit a co-worker who had hip surgery a little over a week ago. She's going to be off work for several weeks and I thought I would take her a basket of snacks and magazines ... and offer to run her vacuum sweeper! I'm wearing Bond Fire Island, because she always says that is her favorite of all my frags.

    Wearing the lovely Sabi. It's positively elevating.

    Halston Man by Halston



    I'm still trying to figure out if I like this or not. There is a certain accord in this, that annoys me...a metallic, aluminum-foil-floral sort of smell that I can't seem to place. It gives the scent a velvety texture that I'm sure is pleasing to certain noses but to mine I wish it would fade. I will most likely test this again in the winter cold weather, to see if it wears differently.

    Good morning all !
    Domperrier- it's wonderful to see that picture of Mitsouko - it is my favorite picture. I always wondered who that lady was or is .... I found out that this lady Virginia Wing was the face of Mitsouko in the 1960s - so I am guessing it is her,then. This is a more recent picture of Virginia Wing .....





    Scent of the morning is Chanel No.5 extrait.

    Les Néréides Vert D'Eau. A little sappy, a little fresh. Undemanding, pleasant and best of all, free (warehouse mixup)! Thanks to Kewart's headsup about Les Néréides hitting TKMaxx, I have minis of Fleur Poudrée De Musc and Oriental Lumpur as well.
