Thread: 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!

Although that might be wasteful as I am am painting my bike, and I am painting paintings.
Hwever, it does set off the turpentine fumes and makes me happy.
“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.”

Portrait of a Lady for today
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.

My condolences, CPB.
Today is Kenzo Jungle Le Tigre. It's going to be warm today. Hope this isn't too much.
I'm back to work after a week off, so Chanel 31 rue Cambon is my choice today.
CBP, keep the wonderful memories close.
Hugs to CandyPerfumeBoy and your family.
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.
First of all my condolences to CPB To the rest of you good morning Today is one of my bestfriends' birthday. She wanted to go out for a little bit of celebration on the actual day. Looking forward to that but before that is all about the curiculum for my written exam. Hope you all have a smooth start of the week.
Good Morning All,
CPB (((hugs))) and condolences on your loss
SotD is Bel Respiro, hope everyone has a lovely day!!!
Happiness is a summer breeze, sand between your toes, and your family by your side.

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..."

Today I'll be sampling more of the Penhaligon's.
For now it's LP No 9 on the left arm and Amaranthine on the right arm.
Hugs and kind thoughts to Candy Perfume Boy.
Best wishes to all as we gear up for another week of come-what-may.
Accidentally wearing Profumi del Forte Versilia Vintage Boise a second time. Thought I was grabbing an unsampled sample, but this Boise is fine, too.

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.
