    Default SotD Wednesday, 6 April 2011

    Good morning,
    I seem to be haunted by a disgustingly sweet almondy women's fragrance, because I come accross it at every corner in Vienna. Good for Vienna that I still have style and good taste , so I'm back to Mitsouko again today. It's official now: I LOVE the new extrait.
    Have a great day from rather sunny Vienna, where the weather has been better than forecast.

    Prowl by Neil Morris today. Meow!

    Probably the next actual full bottle of perfume I will buy. If it survives the heat today. If my job survives. Definitely dark floral, kind of serious & sexy except for the grape koolaid vibe at the beginning that sometimes shows up and sometimes doesn't.

    {{{{Mimi}}}}

    Woke up with a start this morning, deeply embedded in a complex dream and a vicious headache. It's better now, cuppa coffee & 2 Aleve took the edge off.

    My daughter walked into our kitchen this morning & asked: "What smells like pee?" Litter box in the adjacent laundry room, I wondered? No, that wasn't it. Turns out it was me, or rather my fragrance. Bruno Acampora's Jasmine T to be exact. I tried twice to scrub it off, Ajax grapefruit dish liquid with bleach & ALL laundry detergent. It finally became less stinky after I used the ALL. Then I explained about indoles to my girl. She still thinks it was horrible.

    After morning ablutions, I'll select something else.

    I'm wearing Ananas Fizz today. It's such a happy scent. Almost carbonated.

    I need some advice. It takes me about an hour and a half each day to get to work by bus. I'm often late. It takes about 20 minutes by car.

    We have a new woman working in our office and she lives about 15 minutes from me. She also lives about 15 minutes closer to work. She has offered to pick me up and bring me home. I think she wants to make sure that we like and appreciate her.

    I think will probably like and appreciate her and she doesn't need to drive me anyplace for that to happen. ) I feel like I'm taking advantage of her and if she does start taxiing me around it adds an hour a day to her commute and I feel pretty icky about that. Can I tell her no thank you without hurting her feelings do you think?

    I like this older review (2005) of Cristalle and much prefer the edt over the greener (if you can believe it) edp.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense.
