    Default Thanksgiving Fragrance - Not Just for the USA

    Excuse me please if the question has already been asked this year....but which of your glorious fragrances do you plan to wear for your Thanksgiving day celebration this Thursday? And for all of the non-USA fragrance folks, I wish to extend an invitation to join in on the celebration considering Thanksgiving can be a universal day for being being thankful of scent, fragrances, Basenotes, and all of the wonderful fragrance-o-philes who post here.

    For me it will [EDIT: likely] be a Chanel... Bois des Iles, Cuir de Russie, or Bel Respiro.

    Great question, as I was just musing today on this exact question. Our temps here have been in the low 80's, but we will have our version of a cold spell - meaning we'll be in the mid 70's by Thursday. Yay! So I've decided to wear Bond No 9 Success is a Job in NY. First time I'll have worn it this season. This scent works really well in cooler temps and the slightly gourmand spicy oriental seems to go with my intention to eat a lot :-)

    I never know what I will want to wear until the day itself - clothes, perfume, any of it. Last year I wore Molinard Ambre that a very kind Basenoter sent me. The year before that I wore Pomegranate Noir by Jo Malone. I don't know what it will be this year.

    I don't celebrate Thanksgiving but I do celebrate Evacuation Day. I haven't picked out the fragrance just yet though.

    I was seriously thinking of L'Homme Sage, as I love that herbal note. But I'll probably wear Micallef Special Red, 'cause it smells like apples. And sugar.

    Hah! I had to look this one up to expand my knowledge of US history. I am so amused that this was celebrated until WW1.
    Probably Cuir de Lancome, that's pretty cozy and safe on me.

    My vintage bottle of Shalimar extrait from E-bay will not arrive in time for Thxgiving. I am bracing myself for it as an event of historic proportions. :-). So it will be Samsara.

    All amzing choices. Very inspiring. I've added 2 other "potential wears" to my list...Ambre Narguile by Hermes and Douce Amere by Serge Lutens. Both have dark, sugared fruit notes that would complement the Thanksgiving fare so well.

    I like the idea of Coromandel too, Fleurine, or possibly Bois des Iles or Coco (I guess Chanel and Thanksgiving are also right up my alley, Pomander!) ...but I think I'll end up in Tom Ford's luscious Noir de Noir - I love the way it subtly blends with the sumptuous aromas of food, both savory and sweet.

    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

    Most likely Bois des Iles, but SL douce Amere is in the running. Actually, now Ambre Narguile is a good idea too. Pomander, I like your style!!!

    I love to wear my Carons during the holidays. Well, I love to wear them all year long but they do have a touch of the special occasion about them and just feel festive to me.

    So for Thanksgiving I was thinking of Farnesiana extrait, however also in the running are the autumnal Dolce Vita and Arabie. Stay tuned!

    Thanks for taking the time to expand your knowledge about U.S. History. My cousin, Abraham Lincoln was responsible for the introduction of the Thanksgiving holiday that basically put Evacuation Day to rest. Unfortunate that we have forgotten about all these heroic men.

    Me too, I may choose Aimez Moi parfum, I also have a decant of En Avion on hand. Otherwise, I'll go to the house of Guerlain, with Jicky, Shalimar, Mitsouko or Attrape Couer. Oh heck, Arabie might win. In other words, I'll decide tomorrow. But it WILL be spicy and warm.

    I think I will be going for Bourbon's KusKus, we are invited to a thanksgiving dinner with people I do not know. I'm not to keen, it's my last evening, I'd rather spend it alone with the Q, and it means I will have to cook something to bring, and I need to finish a painting and do my packing.
    KusKus will be very comfortable.

    Hi back at ya Knit!

    For my Thanksgiving day, I ended up wearing Bois des Iles (parfum) from a tiny decant I recently bought, and have been savouring. It was just right, and is still going strong! I hope everyone had a lovely celebration

    I wore Rue Royale, it doesn't project much on me (I think) and that's ideal for dinner. I had a really nice time, and we are home again so I can go to bed early and be ready tomorrow for travel

    Ended up wearing, of all things, Askew by H&G. The ginger and cardamom worked well. Not a conventional choice, and no, I wasn't angry (Askew is supposedly a scent about anger ), but it was just calling my name that day.
