    Default SOTD, Wednesday 12 October 2011

    Afternoon all. I'm in Chene - it's so dry, boozy, savoury, and contemplative. Just perfect for the soggy weather we've been having lately.

    Joining Pamplelune in Lutens today. Back in Fumerie Turque. I told myself I'd wait until I finished my 10ml decant before buying a bottle. I cracked.

    Have a lovely hump day all

    Lordy is it Wednesday already? The weeks are flashing past. It will soon be Christmas - aaaargh! Feels wintry as well today - heavy rain, grey skies, cool temps. Will resist the urge to crawl back under the covers and instead apply a liberal dose of Hypnotic Poison.
    That will cheer me up.

    Sharing the house with hedonist... Absolue pour le Soir, Francis Kurkdjian today - snugly, warm, naughty and slightly raunchy for a cold, wet, windy day (what the ....!).
    Have a great day nevertheless!

    Good morning. My, you all smell intriguing today, lots that I haven't tried.

    Hedonist, WE are lucky?? Want swapsies? Bring your thermal underpants and leave your beach towel there for me. Ha ha.

    Nothing this morning. Day off, yipee, and heading into town, so I am open to discovering something new. Maybe the new Annick Goutal? Maybe see you later. Take care all.

    Morning all! Hope you're all having a bright and shiny day. And if you're not, hugs to you.
    Ah, well this morning I dabbed on something from a mini a friend gave me at a swapsie session. I have no idea what it is! It's OK; an inoffensive aquatic in a dark blue bottle. NOT Cool Water, as it's not too melon-centric.

    I'm thinking I'll top off with a favourite - probably an Ava Luxe and most likely Mousse de Chine, since it's my absolute fave of hers, though Bois Exotique is also in the running.

    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..."

    very undecided today and may need to go with Third Man....we'll see. I need a scent to sweep me off my feet today.

    Good morning good smelling people! I am wearing today the She Wolf by Smell Bent. This is Vanilla and what to me smells like the same 'dirty musk' in the Horny Little Devil. It smells very good to me.

    Have a lovely day, all.

    Daughter's taking PSAT tests today. Time flies, kids grow so fast.

    I sprayed on a bit of fruity greenness today that has a similar vibe to Un Jardin Sur le Toit:
    Love's Rain Forest, a cheapie from the pharmacy.

    @hedonist-- nice jar of brushes there behind the perfumes-- are you the painter?

    I decided on Chanel no. 22 and I got my wish about being swept off my feet. Lovely, floral, blousy without being overstated, and very feminine. Just what I needed today! I will leave the Third Man for hubby. (thanks to Twolf for the sample

    Hedonist, I wouldn't get much work done with that view. Although, I suppose, if caught daydreaming and gazing out the window, I could say I was just doing some "blue sky thinking" for a project.

    I've got two close quarters meetings today, so I'm going with a light application of my all time favorite fragrance - FM Iris Poudre. They may hate it, but it makes me feel confident and cozy.

    My mom is the artist. She's been painting since she was 14. That was about 38 years ago.

    It certainly is a lovely view. My initial office had views of the gulf but a job promotion lead to a bigger office but city view lol

    Hello everyone -

    Trying something a bit different for ballet class this morning, I'm in vintage-70s Oscar de la Renta (full name, before the de la Renta was dropped) edt. Y'all have a fabulous day!


    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
