    Default SotD Friday, 6 January 2012

    Good morning,
    I'm again in Habanita Extrait sprayed. This is one SERIOUS AND BUTCH LEATHER (sprayed). Holy smoke! And it lasts and lasts...
    I've been a bad boy and located that stunning 1849 re-edition bottle with 100 ml of the extrait at a sales price (don't get confused, it is extrait and not EdP!)

    I had wanted to buy this more than a year ago and now it was high time I did...
    Best to all for a lovely day!

    EDIT: Happiest birthday, dear Jon! I hope you are having a very special day. What does MAN wear on HIS day?
    Sorry for expressing myself poorly, G.! This is what the bottle looks like... Molinard launched a re-edition 1849 (foundation of Molinard) series of their classics some years ago. All were EdPs, but Habanita was an extrait. A year ago Molinard confirmed to me that the jus in the bottle was the same than in the 1/2 oz. bottle of extrait that I had gotten from Molinard before. These re-edition bottles are disappearing. You will have to sample the extrait. You will like it, I am almost certain.

    Jon, with affection and fondness, please let me express my gratitude of your presence among us: you are here when somebody reaches a milestone, you are first to jump in with the words of encouragement, you are sincere and a nature lover. You wear what you want and manage to smell fantastic every single day. How many times have you read one of us say: "Let me sit near JR"? I wish you a very happy new year of your life and many fragrant discoveries.

    Very Merry Christmas Eve to our Greek participants.

    Re-did that grapefruit marmelade with SureGel brand of pectin, it still has not set. Perhaps, 30R is right with less is more when it comes to citrus preserving, or I might be too stingy with my sugar, I do not know. It tastes great though, for what it's worth.

    Van Cleef for the Arabian nights today -- boozey fruit, languid vanilla, precious woods.

    Nice day to verklempt cello, too.

    In synch with SL Chergui. Some days I like it, others I don't care for it as much. We shall hope this is a good day

    Mrs. E, I missed you last evening, but I saw your news and about jumped through the screen to give you a big hug (as I believe Mrs T is referring to) You are going to have a GREAT time. I'll be watching for you on the screen, as you will be the one with everyone around you leaning in for a good sniff

    I am wearing ( from samples )



    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..."

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in sync this morning with Méharées by L'Erbolario.





    Happy Birthday JON - Twolf is absolutely right, and far more eloquent than I, so I'll just have to go with "what she said!" Cheers!


    d4N13L - I adore that Moschino I Love Love campaign, and bought a small bottle of it based solely on that! It's very similar to Light Blue, don't you think? I like the Moschino better, though.


    Kiliwia - you smell utterly gorgeous in one of my favorite roses ...ever, I think!


    Thanks 30Roses, shades, Wolfie and cello for your good wishes regarding my upcoming Australian journey! I'm a little obsessed now and am having a hard time concentrating, even thinking, really, about anything else! ((cello)) - okay, but we tend to hang out near the outer courts for the first week, so you won't be catching me on the JumboTron, lol! But I'll wave at any camera that points my way!

    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

    Wearing Lolita Lempicka for the first time in a couple of years...it's just as beautiful as I remembered.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."
