    Default SotD Wednesday 25 May -11

    Good morning everyone.... Feeling rather zombielike this morning....Even so sleepy that I'm not even nervous about today's exam... Thanks a million for all the good luck wishes yesterday I don't feel prepared at all, but will do my best. Sotd is chosen from the "Pick my tomorrow's sotd thread" ( or something like that) and he did well I'm in Shalimar today. Hopefully it will make me feel fearless and strong!!

    Sending good vibes to ineespenes! Good to see you posting again, Brielle!

    I have an early morning tomorrow, something I heartily dislike, so I think I will be doing a third day in Givenchy III, just to keep things a little less complicated for me come 7:30am (for those of you who customarily awaken with the dawn I am aware that 7:30 is akin to sleeping in). Take care, all.

    Hmmm, I still smell the Balmain de Balmain from last night. (perfume) I just have to re-apply!

    “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.”

    Mure et Musc Extreme, the last of the little sample. Love this, and it's among the very exclusive group of scents that are DH-approved, it got the highest praise of "that smells OK". actually reminds me of the Body Shop Dewberry body wash, and I didn't expect to like it so much, threw it in as a something-different in a sample order, but wow. It is very lovely in the heat, too, which is a big deal down here.

    I will buy it someday - I think the Keiko Meicheri Datura Blanche won for the this summer buy though. But if some extra money comes in, this is a close #2 contender.

    Brielle and jasper, so nice to see you back!

    JonR, I guess we are getting all your rain. The grass is growing thick, Mr.T has to mow every four days, between the rains and his cursing.

    Kenzo Jungle L'Elephant again, thanks goodness we are still cool, perhaps will even close the windows to keep it warm inside.

    Pick your scent thread, some of you have said? I will check that.

    Welcome back Brielle and Jasper, you've been missed!

    Annick Goutal Musc Nomade. A lovely, gentle vegetal musk with an herbal accent. Clean-smelling without going sharp the way some musks can do.

    Notes: Muscone, white musk stemming from angelica root and ambrette seed, tonka beans, labdanum, Bombay wood (a variety of papyrus)

    Take care, all!

    Good morning!

    Brielle and Jasper, nice to see you back!

    SotD is Michelle Bergman Black Gardenia Perfume Oil. For the 1st 15 minutes all I could think was,
    wow, shouldn't wear this in the morning. I'd forgotten how potent this is, but now it's settling
    down and it's really nice. Pure gardenia and nothing else as far as I can tell. I like it way better
    than Kai, but my favorite is still Gardenia Petale by VC & A.

    It's warm here, a bit too warm for my favorite flowers: tall bearded iris. Just looking at a bed of iris, with their array of colors, makes me smile. The Presby Iris Garden is just a town (or two) over from me in Upper Montclair. Think I'll take my camera for a little stroll before the heat gets too intense.

    Scent today is Aqua de Parma's Iris Nobile edt. From bois de jasmine: "Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile was created by perfumers Francis Kurkdjian and Françoise Caron of Quest in 2004" They are referring to the edt. The edp was created by Francoise Caron alone. Notes: "Iris Nobile EDT includes notes of bergamot, mandarin, iris petals, star anise, cedar flower, iris petals, orange blossom, iris, amber, vanilla" Quotes are from a review by bois de jasmine on February 21, 2007.

    The avatar is a photo I took of iris in my garden.

    There is a singular joy in the experience of receiving perfume by mail. It is one of life's great little pleasures - one that more should have the pleasure of knowing.

    I'm anticipating the roses by a few weeks, wearing Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare.

    The bushes all have small buds on them-- yay!

    What _does_ one wear to the dentist? Inspired by Robin-in-FL, I'm in Mure et Musc. Does anyone know who the perfumer for the original was?
