    Default SoTD - Tuesday September 28th 2010

    With nobody starting one, I've decided to do it.

    My SoTA is Guerlain'sInsolence


    Just arrived today. Sprayed it on, and: 'Wow'! Despite some criticisms, I like this....a lot! The berries & violet are loud & brash, but I'd like to think of them as bright & effusive

    CARNAL FLOWER




    Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle
    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..."

    My choice for today: Jil Sander no4

    Some gray days this one is visually irresistable -
    it looks like its glowing from inside.

    Good morning all! Woke up without a clue as to what scent to wear today. I think it's the weather (cool, humid...neither autumnal nor summery). So, I'm "auditioning" a few scents on wrists and arms before my shower:

    Hermes Eau Claire des Merveilles - a possibility
    Bulgari Rose Essentielle - no, not right for this weather
    Guerlain L'Instant de Guerlain - hmmm, perhaps?
    Chanel Cristalle - oh yes! Singing on my skin!

    Off to shower and will go with Cristalle.

    Have a great Tuesday.

    Welcome back to Lady_in_Black. The Pink Unicorn has been so missed. And finally found?
    Welcome back to Asha too -- I have even asked one other LA BNer about you.

    PdE Wazamba for me today, delicate but African, with inner energy and pulsing interchanges.

    somehow, Shalimar edp has become my Angel
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    That red door looks exactly like the one on our old house, except that ours opened on the other side. It makes me feel nostalgic.

    I'm on a sample finishing mission. This morning it's Musc Bleu by Il Profumo. It doesn't smell particularly blue to me (more green in the beginning), but I'm just glad I can smell it at all. I used to not be able to. I've made some dietary changes recently, and my sense of smell is becoming clearer as a result (less nasal stuffiness).

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in the warm and radiant, long-discontinued 8e Jour from Yves Rocher. I have quite a history with this one and fiancé loves it, so it's another contender for our wedding day!



    Y'all have a wonderful day!

    Chanel Bois des Iles for me today. I'm auditioning it for Ms. E's wedding for her. Actually, it is one of my 5 star frags, so this is not a hard task to do. Besides, she won't care what I vote anyway

    Thanks for the vote cello, and all the hard work...lol! You do smell glorious! It's harder than it seems, and I'm starting to think I'm making it too important....but I'm really not. I just want to make sure it's right, and BdI could never be wrong (but then again, neither could Coromandel, Coco or 8e Jour, etc...)

    As blind as a bat! An impulse buy too...coz I saw the 1.7 oz going for $9.99 and couldn't resist a perceived bargain!

    Haunani, my condolences to you and your family. I'm very sorry for your loss.

    Evangeline, I just now put it together that you are getting married -- congratulations! I imagine this has already been thought of or suggested to you, but have you considered Joy parfum as a wedding scent?

    Yesterday's scent, Cabochard, was not my cup of tea, as it kept pulling up that dreaded mildew note all day long, so today I am choosing a more "me" scent from my friend's wardrobe: Madame Rochas. Take care, all.
