Thread: SotD Thursday, 30 June 2011
Good morning all,
Back from my business trip, which was a nightmare... I actually hit the bye-byes at 2 am. after a shower. Short story: Plane delayed... embarking... 1.5 hours' wait in the plane - aircondition broke... sticky and hot.... disembarking... flight cancelled... re-booking.... plane delayed.... embarking... another one hour wait, because no time slot.... hot and sticky again...all in all 6 hours... no food provided and you had to ask for something to drink. I'm going to whisper sweetest words to Austrian Airlines today. Now, after a bowl of freshly picked raspberries, my fave fruit, and my SotD En Avion the worls looks much brighter and my headache is now only a minor one (also after 4 ! espresso), but it felt like trucks driving over me this morning.
Gandhajala, Nice to think of me when you hear of Vol de Nuit. I dearly love this...sniff, I want to see that TV program as well... I'm in the finest company here and I know my BN friends Dimi and Mims love this at least as dearly as I do.
Twolf, Thanks for asking! I checked with my 'lovel pals' from the baggie boutique and my guess is they haven't ordered it yet and it is supposed to be here end of next week. I will only be able to pick it up last week of July though.... Gimme that online shopping opportunity! NOW! I'm fed up with them in person.
Have a nice day all!
Hello all. Wearing my new L'Occitane Notre Flora Iris edp.
Looks like it's going to be a scorcher here in London. I'm wearing L'Occitane Honey and Lemon again.
Larimar - your trip sounds like the ultimate headache. Hope you can take it a little bit easy today. If you have time, maybe you can try using that 'expat shield' piece of software to watch the BBC perfume documentary. It seems to have worked for many people here.
Sotd: Serge Lutens: Sarrasins.

A sample of Keiko Mecheri's Mogador. Bliss!
Larimar, sounds like you had a hell of a day - hope today is a BIG improvement.

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..."

Wow, Larimar, that does sound like a bad time. Yikes!
Neil Morris' Prowl this morning. A little grape koolaid over a dark floral over a very patchouli-muskishness. This is a grownup lady fragrance for sure. It's a good smell.
Larimar - a nightmare indeed! I for one prefer travelling by boat and train - pity it takes days rather than hours to get anywhere by those methods!
Wearing one of my favourites today, Bulgari Black.
"Are you a god?"
"Are you a wizard?"
"Are you a man?"
"Then what are you?"
"I am awake.."
Larimar, egads, what an ordeal! Hope today goes better for you.
Joining Gandhajala in Serge Lutens, Chergui for me. It's been a while since I've worn any frags of this house and I feel a Lutens jag coming on.
Take care, all!

Oy, Larimar, sounds like Austrian Airlines needs to give you a free vacation to make up for the business trip fiasco! Though personally I wouldn't blame you if you were a wee bit hesitant to get on another of their flights... Who knows when you'd get to the vacation destination?
Robin-in-FL I *adore* Neil Morris in person, his fragrances in general, and Prowl in particular! Excellent choice!
It's actually supposed to be sunny and dry in Boston today, and I decided to go with Parfumerie Generale Querelle. It's crisp, woody and very, very dry - I think it would be wonderful in humid weather, and to my nose it trends traditionally "masculine" so gentlemen, don't be shy about trying this one. I'm hoping my skin's tendency to pull any sweet notes out of a frag will do so here as it dries down, but I'm enjoying it "as is," too. Thrilling Thursday to all!
Querelle Notes: Citrus, Iranian black caraway, myrrh, cinnamon, Haitian vetiver, incense, oakmoss, ambergris.
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
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Larimar, glad you’re back home and beginning to feel human again. Traveling can be such an ordeal.
Everyone is smelling wonderful, as usual.
A very kind Basenoter sent me a sample of this a while back, and I loved it so much, and even my husband gave me a compliment (rarely happens) so I ordered a 50 ml bottle, which arrived yesterday (woo hoo!).
vanilla, tuberose, hyacinth, jasmine, heliotrope, gardenia, aldehyde
I'm in Caron's Pour Une Femme this morning. Y'all have a great day!
redrose - I went through a decant of Mogador in no time and I've been pondering a full bottle ever since. You smell heavenly!
Larimar - Ugh, I can relate, and all too often! Glad that torment's behind you now.
ComDiva - I love your new avatar! Is that a vintage travel poster?
Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan
SOTD is Songes, a gift from Jellyfish from the "Free to a Good Home" thread. I have a sample vial which is basically empty. This is one I didn't like the first time I tried it but on the 2nd and 3rd wearing, really liked. I'm thankful to Jellyfish for her kindness in gifting this to me. It is going to be another scortcher here today. Ahhh... summer in the south.
Larimar- what a nightmare. Sounds like flying is getting worse and worse all the time.
Musc Ravageur. I fell in love with this on a hot and humid day just like today... light application!
Thank you all for your words! I'm feeling much better today. I have never experienced something like this in my eleven years of biz travels to Frankfurt. Official complaint and claim is sent to Customer Relations of Austrian Airlines. I know I won't be the only one.
Oh-oh, I think I'm starting to "lemming" a yard accessory. Our daughter makes a pizza topped with chicken, barbeque sauce, red onions and cheese, of course, the very memory of which causes my mouth to water.Originally Posted by Leesee
L'Heure Bleue, why did it take me years to love you?
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Good morning! My SotD is Bobbi Brown Beach. With notes of sand jasmine,
sea spray and mandarin, according to the Bobbi Brown website.
It's suppose to hit 91 this afternoon, so this is where I wish I could be, at the beach.
Have a good day!
Larimar, rest up and recover well from your ordeal!
Eau de Lalique for me today as I head into a long weekend. Last day of work today - yeah!!!
Good morning everyone Larimar, hope your day only gets better! Horrible "service"! Today I'm enjoying Narciso Rodriguez FH. It's been a while since we last "met". Have a great day everyone!
Scent twins today with iechris in Songes!
Gandhajala and tdem, you both smell fabulous.
Lilybelle, I just ordered a 50ml bottle of the Vanille Givree des Antilles. I like the whole set of LMdlV's vanillas, but I especially like yours and the one I ordered. I still have samples of the others if you'd like to try them. PM me and let me know.
Larimar, isn't that funny? I fell for Musc Ravageur in the heat of summer as well!
Cheers, everyone! Today is my Friday -- off work tomorrow as my sis is getting married on Saturday. Have a super weekend as I likely won't get to post until Sunday or Monday!
Larimar sweetheart- what a trip ! I'm glad you're home now.
As you can see I have turned into a bird. My avatar - this is my gorgeous little wild/tame bird Piggy who is a bluejay but aspires to be much more than that.
Scent of the morning is Chanel No. 22 .
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
SotE - Tom Ford Extreme.
It has been CRAZY busy in June. I think this was the 3rd highest number of 100+ days on record, and the most since the early 50's, several years before I was born.
SOTM: Oliver Durbano Pink Quartz. Bedtime last night: Coco Mademoiselle, which I haven't worn for about a year. Hope to catch up with everyone tomorrow, when I'm away from work.
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
Wearing Yves Rocher Ode a la vie today.
Fahrenheit After Shave Vintage
I applyed After Shave as a cologne, so it has a great smell in EDC concentration
