    Default SotD Tuesday, 21 June 2011

    Good morning all,



    Vol de Nuit, new extrait today... I perceive it spicier today. I also got a connection with Shalimar 1 1/2 hours into wearing it.

    Iiiiiiiinteresting :-D

    Probably much to be said about your own current mood and skin chemistry, I suppose...

    Have a lovely Tuesday all!

    Good morning Larimar, you smell oh so delicious and sensual. I adore VdN, especially the extrait.

    (((((DORA))))) you need a group hug. Be well

    Yesterday I wore Fille d'Eve by Nina Ricci in the day and put on Ombre Bleue (vintage) by Jean Charles Brosseau in the evening. Now as I am about to go to bed, I think I will refresh the Ombre Bleue which brings back some of my best childhood memories, loved it when it was first out in the 80's and still do now.

    Have a lovely day all.

    Drowning in Malle's Iris Poudre (Pierre Bourdon). The sprayer on my sample is broken, so it seems to be all or nothing. Plus the sample is nearly empty. Thankfully I have a bottle on the way! Just a purse spray, but if I by chance use that up I'll allow myself a full bottle.

    Enjoy the beginning of summer all.

    Jon Rodgers and Furriner, you two need to sit on either side of me THISCLOSE so I can take turns reveling in how good you both smell!

    For me today, Piguet's Baghari. I think it's the iris/orris that gives me the impression that this is a floral chypre (at least on my skin), even though the Piguet marketers call it a light oriental, which it also is - In any case, I love it.

    Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

    Baghari notes: Aldehydes, rose, jasmine, iris, fresh citrus, amber, vanilla.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Hot, humid, rainy, and I'm stuck home in a messy house I need to clean. The choice was antidote, i.e. Guerlain Champs Elysées, or to give into the funk with Kouros. I went with the Champs Elysées for now.

    Smoke from the nearby forest fire settled in the valley where I live overnight, so my sniffer is off a bit this morning. Still exploring my closet and decide on Organza from a mini and it is surprisingly likeable to me today. I always found this one quite the cloying floral, but today it's all amber and spice and vanilla on my skin.

    UBV is my Brad Pitt of fragrance.

    Until I see him in something like "The Tree of Life" or "Fight Club" or even (or perhaps especially) "Ocean's Eleven," I forget that Brad Pitt is actually a very good actor. Similarly, I forget how really fantastic UBV is until I wear it. I need to wear it more often.

    Solstice Salutations, Scented Souls.
    Our internet connection was taken out last night by a bolt of lightning. Time Warner crews were parked in our driveway much of the morning. Another storm passed over just a few minutes ago. Severe weather warnings follow news of flooded neighborhoods in Milwaukee.

    Started the day in Hové Rue Royale, which still surprises me with how it smells different from everything else I've ever sampled. I hope we can learn something of its ingredients when we're in New Orleans. Aside from maybe vetiver, it's a real mystery.

    Headed to the shower now to ditch my sweaty "mason" grunge. Paver tote count stands at 445. Just 555 to go. Save your pity. Move stones? Stack firewood? It's like a get a runner's high.

    Quarry, Ms. Piggy seems so la dolce vita in that avatar. Love that one. Good luck with the pavers. Please be careful, Ms. Supergirl.

    I'm polishing off another sample as SotE, Diptyque's Olene. It is quite a heady floral (wisteria, jasmine, narcissus, honeysuckle), and though it seems quite clean and ethereal in the beginning it grows more intensely indolic on the skin with time. It's almost noxious, like a beautiful yet poisonous night blooming flower. For me, fragrances like this are perfect for outdoor evenings in summer, but gardenia is still Queen.

    Hello all - Trying to use up my vast and somewhat unwieldy pile of scented lotions, since those things don't keep forever. Just a smidge of the weirdly blue Laila lotionin the morning today. Now that it's (mostly?) gone, I am wearing L'Occitane Peony. Seems that the rollerball isn't quite the same as the bottle (spray) that I have at home. Hm.

    Those lotions are strong stuff. The other day, I wore Clinique Wrappings lotion. You know, just to "mix it up" (a little Christmas in June!). My sweet little 7yo daughter says "mommy, you stink!". Ha!

    Hope you are all well...
