    Default SotD Monday, 9 May 2011

    Good morning all,
    We have been really blessed with wonderful weather lately and today is no exception.
    In preparation for today's SotD I did some testing and experimenting last week since I seemed to get no longevity at all when sprayed on skin. So, I am back to dabbing (I should have known... real Cuir de Russie extraits, which is vintage (several) and the new Chanel, get unsettled to my nose when sprayed. I realised this with my Lanvin Scandal long before.) and a good amount on fabric in addition.
    So, today I'm enjoying Cuir de Russie parfum and I smell like a million bucks.
    Have a nice day!

    “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. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    Guerlain's Jicky, 1970s Parfum. Of all its components, coumarin is perhaps the most interesting, due both to its historic newness in the lab and to its crucial role in Jicky. Coumarin is a natural isolate found in tonka bean and in several grasses and plants. Albeit overall sweet-smelling, it has in higher concentrations an earthy undertone reminiscent of bitters and petrol, or even glue. This aspect is very present in Jicky and usually chocks the newbie before settling into a state of pleasurable dependence.

    As predicted, we have skipped spring -- winter right into summer, and boy it is hot. Will be even hotter tomorrow.

    I miss the "Thank You" button.

    In the same house with Gandhajala -- only it is Blue Mediterraneo Fico di Amalfi for me today, from a wonderful BN friend. She sent quite a lot so that I can refresh as it fades.

    (((((CandyPerfumeBoy))))) I'm so sorry. xox

    Guerlain Vetiver eau de cologne, thank you Silverbullet for the decant. Elegant and classy but it's a bit too dry for my tastes. Then again my skin tends to dry out many fragrances so I always do better with all but the most ultrasweet things.

    Take care, everyone.
