    Lovely pic, gandhajala! I joined you earlier, because I have two early morning scents on my wrists... Bois des Iles EdT and Parfum Sacre EdP... both thanks to kind BN friends BdI I love, but is too thin in EdT for my skin. Parfum Sacre I disliked a lot in the past, but can tolerate it today.
    I will later apply my SotD after a bath and probably go in Vol de Nuit as I am away for the day... high time for my weekly almond oil bath, because my skin is very dry in summer (sun, wind, pool).
    My favorite rose in the garden is in bloom...

    FALSTAFF!
    Enjoy your Sunday!

    SOTD is Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Woman. Stunningly beautiful: spicy and warm, with glints of greenness, and, with its hemlock note, a most unique fragrance. I can't think of anything else it smells like.

    top: cardamom, coriander, grass oil
    heart: black hemlock, violet, jasmine absolute
    base: vetiver, cedar wood, amber, sandalwood

    A good Sunday to all!

    Today I'm sampling Mure et Musc.

    Off topic, but I just had to share. Last week I got to spend a few days in London (the trip of a lifetime for me). Anyway, I saw this as a great opportunity to see a Hermes boutique for the first time and sniff to my heart's content. But when I got there, they were closed for the bank holiday. I could see those Hermessence bottles through the window, so close and yet so far.

    Thinking about it again brings a little tear to my eye.

    Aw, suz894, your story sounds like a perfumista's bad dream. I was reminded of a meet-up between Tang and Ubuandibeme in Chicago. That city's dedicated L'Artisan boutique was short lived. Here is Ubuandibeme, unable to restrain her grief.



    Sampling Azagury's namesake EdP. It opens with a citrus-like burst, but I think it's actually a green note harmonizing with ginger that averages out to make a citrus impression. Then, for a second, I thought I smelled bologna on toast with mayonnaise. That was weird. We'll see what happens as it dries down. The notes according to Lucky Scent: Rare Himalayan mogra, helianol, amber, mysore sandalwood, precious woods, ginger oil, Moroccan rose, white cyclamen aldehydes.

    Me too Mimi- she was dreamy! (Actually, Louise Brooks has been on my mind of late. At the ballet last Saturday, there was a girl who was her absolute Doppelgänger: She had the same short black bob, same eye makeup, same '20s style hat and dress. Incredible. I manoeuvred myself to stand next to her during the interval, but as usual, I was too shy to say anything. *sigh*).

    Anyway, SotA/E will be En Avion (parfum) again. Intoxicating stuff and to my nose, oh-so sexy.

    Best to all.

    Thought I'd check in....we spend a hunk of last night at the emergency room. Sofie had a migraine so bad she lost her vision, could barely walk, stand & was weeping from the pain.
    She had her very first IV and was a trooper about it.
    I'll follow up tomorrow with her pediatrician & the neurologist.

    SOTD is LUSH soap in Snowcake. Keeping it light for Miss Ma'am (who is still sleeping.)

    Enough about us.....
    I love the pictures we post on SOTD. Larimar, I am crazy in love with that rose! Falstaff, you say? It looks like an old garden rose. Is it fragrant? Looks like it is.
    Inees...have a good visit with your friend.
    It is sooooo frustrating to make a trip to a much anticipated destination, only to find it closed. I feel your pain suz!

    Nearly all of my roses are in bloom, along with the pyracantha & spirea bushes and the last of the iris and peonies.

    Bon voyage, Baldufita. Spain is perfect!

    I am leaving today on a vacation as well--to France!! I am excited beyond belief, as it has been four years...Perfume destinations. In Paris i will buy Vol de Nuit extrait at Le Printemps, as I have a foreigner's 10%-off coupon there. I may also pick up some Histoires de Parfums, if not at Printemps, then at a small boutique down the block from the Marais apt. that we are renting for the week.
    And finally, dear ones, I will go to Grasse! I am so excited! In addition to the museum and factory tours, I will buy a bottle of Habanita parfum for my daughter!
    What with the uncertain ecomony and the vagaries of aging, this may be my last fabulous French blast! I intend to live it to the fullest!

    Oh, I am wearing a concoction from Soapology that seemed right for the plane ride. It is a perfume oil with notes of gardenia and amber.
    A bientot!

    Ohhhhhh, RHM, how much more suffering do you have to go through I wonder? Hugs to you and Ms. Ma'am.

    JonR, please ship all your unwanted penguins here, we might need them to cool off some, +36C (98F) here tomorrow, just a bit cooler today.

    That's a bummer, suz894.

    Baldufita, you guys have good time down at your parents'. Therese, enjoy your own France.

    Cammy, welcome. You can start a new SotD thread when it is after midnight where you are, otherwise many of us are posting on the same thread with our SotE (Scent of the Evening).

    Continuing Citrus theme this weekend in Trefle Pur by Atelier, a nice summery cologne with clover.

    Sampling Or et Noir extrait this morning. It opened with... is that perm solution? Now I'm getting the rose and something almost soapy. Not sure I have the patience today to see it through. Maybe Gucci EdP or Nanadebary Pink or....

    Update: ok, not to disparage the Or et Noir... it smells perfectly acceptable now, pretty rose with a faint touch of powder and spice.
