    Default SotD Monday, 20 June 2011

    Good morning... Monday it is
    Time to break the seal of my Vol de Nuit vintage extrait that I was fortunate to have it come my way...
    This is it for me today! It stirs emotions and is always slightly demanding (in its vintage form) for me to wear, but it fits today's mood.
    Marvellous and I am OVER THE MOON with it!
    Yes, Quarry, tilted my head back to prevent fainting
    Have a great day!

    Czech and Speake's Oxford & Cambridge for me today: Went all the way with both the perfume and shaving soap (which, incidentally, is the most incredible shaving soap I have ever come across).

    Happy Monday all.

    Today I have basked in Le Dix.

    What a good classic little number it is too. Marvellously feminine, and to old girls like me, it brings a rush of the youth where it was first discovered and lived with.

    Definitely makes me feel ten years younger. Pity it doesn't help with the image in the mirror. lol

    The Mure Et Musc Extreme by L'Artisan. This is one of those that confuses me by smelling so simple but so good. I mean, berry body wash doesn't smell this good to me, but this isn't too far off from that smell, just better.

    Guerlain's Guet-Apens. If you can envision olfactorily an amalgam of Mitsouko's spicy peach-jasmine-oakmoss harmony and the creamy sandalwood-vanilla base of Shalimar, you get the feel of Guet-Apens.

    N'Aimez Que Moi. Today I'm drying rose petals to make pot pourri, and this gentle, romantic scent suits my mood exactly. Plus, I just received a back-up EdP from Les Senteurs, so I feel "safe" about spraying on this precious scent!

    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..."

    Eau de Givenchy for me this morning, the re-issue that is part of Les Parfums Mythiques collection. Notes include grapefruit, bergamot, honeysuckle, jasmine, cedar and musk. Tart and bitter citrus offset by sweet florals. The cedar is subtle, and I don’t smell the musk. Nice for hot weather. I don't know the original so this one suits me just fine.

    Have a good start to the week, everybody.

    Lorenzo Villoresi Musk. Not a typical musk to me, or maybe I am anosmic to whatever musk is used in this one; to my nose it's more a soft, rosy powder. Lovely.

    Wish you all a good start to your week!

    A while ago I was looking for a good coffee scent, but then I got several other sampling packages, so never got around to trying the final scent I had ordered, A*Men Pure Coffee. Decided to wear it today and it is my favorite of the lot and I actually smelled a little coffee.

    Vintage Miss Balmain by Balmain. My first great love. My introduction as a teenager in what perfume really means!
    www.aafke-art.com

    “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.”
    ― Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Wow, Larimar - I too have such a strong emotional reaction to VdN in parfum. Although I can't imagine going anywhere near my bottle in the hot Summer weather here. The EdC is something I reach for on cool Summer nights. The combination of the two is delightful.


    Kiss Me Tender by Parfums de Nicolai



    First time from a sample - thanks T! It's lovely...although perhaps a tad too sweet for such a thick & humid day here in Miami. Still, it's a nice gourmand departure from most PdN's. And yes, I do smell the connection to Apres l'Ondee.
