    Default SOTD Friday 9 December 2011

    Good morning. For today's synch (A Fave Frag of Yours Slammed by 'The Guide') I'm in AP Eau Emotionnelle, dismissed with 2* and described by Tania as 'cheap and a little tiresome'. Well I like it's peppery, rosy lightness, so there!

    Have a great day all!

    Currently, I am in Mouchoir de Monsieur (it's fading) and I will later sync and wear Tabac Blond for the Christmas market on the castle Rosenburg (yep, that's where the birds of prey show took place ). I can not take TS' review seriously (one star)... whether you like Tabac Blond or not, there is nothing like it - it is so singular, complex and I cannot detect any florals apart from the ylang-ylang, which is a leather contributor

    Good morning everyone Today I finally got an appointment at the hairdresser to dye my hair. It's defenitely about time, because the colour that used to look almost henna red is now ( due to not using the permanent colour last time and sun bleached hair ) almost peach some places, pinkish some spots and not much colour at all underneath. So...a relief to get that sorted out :P For the synch ( slammed by Luca Turin and "The guide") I'm in Crystal Noir. I can see how this might not be terribly exciting and innovative, but I love it anyway Gotta get the book myself, because now I'm really curious about his actual review :P Have a nice day all!

    Good luck, Ine! I sometimes have the same problem, my mom says because of all them heavy metals (gold?) naturally occurring in my hair.

    Got some sniffles, one guy at the restaurant was sneezing all day yesterday, I guess I caught something airborne. My fingers are hurting as the skin is cracked, blame our weather.

    Slammed by The Guide? We got those aplenty. The one featuring the "boring synthetic woody-amber drydown plus PVC raincoat" (p.73) aka Vivienne Westwood Anglomania for me today.

    TGIF, right?

    Well, the storm lasted a long time (about sixteen hours here) and it was quite ferocious. There is surprisingly little damage here, lots of branches down, massive ivy rolled of the side of a building like a rolled up rug, and one whole big tree down in a neighbours garden, but otherwise all fine.

    Here is what I want to say... I was so touched by the stay safe messages from this most wonderful of little communities. You do realise that by thinking about me your poweful magic meant that wind, rain, hail, torrents, the hounds of hell, the four riders of the apocalypse and even Auld Nick himself couldn't have got me yesterday!! Thank You all.

    The beautifully still Bois Des Iles for me today.

    Wolfie, I hope you feel better soon. I'm sure you've tried everything for the dry, cracked hands, but have you tried taking flaxseed oil capsules? I started taking them as soon as the weather cooled down and didn't think they were doing anything until I forgot to take them for a few days, then noticed my skin felt worse without them. Some people take fish oil capsules but I don't like them because they cause -- excuse me -- burps. And I bet you've tried every hand cream in creation like I have, but I *swear* by this: Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Ointment, Concentrated Therapy. Non-greasy, unscented, sinks right in and really does heal the skin. Here's a link (I bought mine at Stop n Shop)

    Glad to hear that Jon and Foustie are okay after that storm. You had some serious winds there.

    Twolf, have you tried pure lanolin? It's very sticky so really only good to put on overnight, but is very effective when there are cracks. I used to buy it at Walgreen's-- the most commonly known brand is Lansinoh. It's marketed to heal cracked nipples but works equally well on hands. A little bit goes a long way.

    Hubby and I are headed to Westport for a date. Mexican food for lunch, smellies to sniff etc. Then back home to walk my mother to her dinner. I want to be absolutely sure she can consistently go the distance and back without the wheelchair before handing that task over to the caregiver. Yesterday she nearly pitched forward over the walker while over-reaching for the elevator button. Clearly there is a bit more training to be done.

    Foustie, so glad that you, and your home, survived the storm!

    I, unfortunately, am not going to be in synch today. I have an uncontrollable urge to wear Chanel 31 rue Cambon, because I love it. Unfortunately, Turin agrees with me on this one. I can't remember if he gave it 4 or 5 stars, but it is a 5 star for me.

    Chanel sent out an email last week, presenting their winter favorites of the les Exclusif line. The picture shows their Christmas presentation box with gold ribbon, and stacked in front of the boxes are Bois des Iles sitting on top of Coromandel and 31 rue Cambon. I want a poster of that to frame and drool over (like Ducs poster ) That picture is the staple of my wardrobe. I always just have to figure out which sits on top, but usually Bois des Iles wins. 31 rue Cambon I think is second.

    Good morning, everyone!

    I'm in Eau du Soir, the "cheap chypre" by Sisley.





    Oh no...sending healing hugs to ((Wolfie)) - you feel better fast! I agree - that wretched weather can be blamed for a whole host of miseries!

    Hey ineespenes, here's what LT has to say about Crystal Noir - "This is described as gardenia in the press material. No such thing, of course, merely a trashy white floral. The creative direction is by Donatella Versace, which explains a lot."
    That's a cheap shot ...he certainly doesn't shy away from getting personal.

    Yeah, Tania gave this 1 star (woody floral) and yet I think it's absolutely divine stuff. Perhaps this is because I never smelled / wore the vintage stuff.

    That's such a pretty pic Mike! And, fwiw, I believe something can be absolutely wonderful, even if it was once a lot more wonderful. If we limited our enjoyment to all the things that have never been monkeyed-with, we wouldn't have anything left to love ....and that doesn't stop at perfumes, either.
