    Default SoTD ~ Thursday October 21st 2010

    After a morning trip to the mall for breakfast, I couldn't help but be enticed to the Dior counter to sample some of their fragrances.

    Although I used scent strips, the scents are strong enough such that, for today, I am unintentionally layering


    with


    with


    with


    I don't own any of these, but hey, it's free scent for a day! (It's like being in a haze of watermelony florals, with a hint of spiciness...a very striking & unusual effect!)

    Good morning. It's an early start for me.

    I didn't post yesterday on Spirit Day, so I've changed my avatar today to reflect my support for this on BN

    Today's scent is

    Laura Biagiotti

    VENEZIA


    There is an urban myth that everyone was wearing this is the '90s. I wasn't, and nor was anyone else in my vicinity. I had never heard of it till about 3 years ago. It has no associations for me other than being a wonderful fragrance in a unique bottle. It is all the better for that.

    I'm looking forward to my day very much, I'm off to visit a client who just so happens to be a rather large high street Chocolatier & cocoa grower which will hopefully involve free chocolate of some variety. Yay!

    Good Morning

    Wearing ENIGMA by Oriflame
    The perfume is perfect for woman who is secretive and mysterious, woman who possesses charm and magnetically attractive charisma. It was created to seduce and tingle your imagination.
    Its top notes offer peach juice with freesia. Heart is wrapped with a veil of mystic with black rose, night jasmine, orange and date fruit. Base introduces sandalwood, patchouli, orchid, ambergris, vanilla and Tonka beans.
    LOVE IS BEST

    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..."

    I'm in Detchema parfum this morning...not Chanel, but I doubt my dance instructor will have a problem with it. Y'all have a nice day.


    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    I'm sampling the discontinued Blazer (Helena Rubinstein) from a decant sent by a Basenoter. It smells crisp and green, clean and soapy up top, then goes a little resiny at the base, almost like Chamade - but more American-sporty. Love.

    Happy Birthday to Dizzy Gillespie.

    Have a good day, all!

    'Morning, all. Yesterday's scent was Jolie Madame, and today's scent will be Jolie Madame again. Still under the spell of this evil cold that turned into a sinus infection, all of which of course makes me less likely to want to put scent on. Uggh. I hope the rest of you are feeling well, or at least getting well. Take care, all.
