    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It's first day of Fall and I am wearing Chinatown in honor of that. My sample is still pretty full, since this perfume lasts quite long on me. I will be contemplating a bottle or decant after finishing the sample since I keep returning to this scent in my mind. Despite the springtime looking bottle with cherry blossoms, this is a Fall fragrance to me, and not very cherry (and not very pink for that matter). To me it's woods with a note of ripe peach, smell of the harvest. Unfortunately, it makes me think about sad things -- for instance, about the fact that Fall quarter starts in 5 days...

    I'm in Evelyn today, a good choice for what started as a routine day but got more hairy as time went on. Mom's been throwing up-- caught a virus-- off to the Dr. for her, then we sat and watched Jane Eyre together, with her barfing a few more times.

    And now I'm home just in time to eat lunch and then meet my daughter at the bus stop to take her to her pediatrician for her yearly checkup and followup on a medical issue.

    After that I can go back and watch Mom some more and try to get a bit of nourishment into her.
    It's been one of those days when she remembers Dad, cries, and tells me not to grieve too much when she dies.

    I'm going to throw myself a little pity party for a few minutes before I go on with my day.

    Mitsouko's longevity is confirmed : I put a moderate dab of the parfum on my forearm at 8:40 pm and now it's 7:50 am and the woody base is still there....faint, but there.

    May Virginia Wing have the same longevity and live to be 100...or more!

    Ah... last night I went to bed wearing... I forget! (really!) But what I did remember was the scent of the JoAnne Bassett Perfumes Sensual Embrace' musk and sandalwood drydown that was clinging to my nightshirt from two nights before! Which made me realize how much I love musk and how it sometimes makes me anosmic until much later in the scent's progression. (which can be a lovely surprise.)

    Today I wore Basenotes Fragrance Project's Scent A, and though I won't describe it here, it did give me pretty whiffs throughout the day... mostly as a skin scent... but I enjoyed it anyway!

    Tonight, I'm testing...Anya's Garden Perfumes Kewdra, another Mystery of Musk sample courtesy of Mimi G! Very earthy and herbaceous so far... but it was just applied. We'll see how it develops!

    Tom Ford White Patchouli -- exhausted after the day of shopping for fall clothes. Got a sweater and a jacket, regretting not buying something that I would probably need but have not bought because I think I have already got something similar and it is in the particular color -- maze!

    Hugs to Pomander and 30R.

    Welcome to our new family members, we do not bite. Not that often.
