    Default SotD Saturday, 14 January 2012

    Good morning,
    It is cold here plus a ghastly wind. There is very very little snow on the ground. I felt it was well deserved to treat myself to a nice breakfast. So, I drove to a nearby bakery, picked up my mail, which included a collection of Aretha Franklin's Atlantic years and a Caron mini of vintage Acaciosa. It smells the same to me compared to my sample of today's. Maybe the first few minutes the vintage smells let's say 20-30 years old, otherwise it is fresh as straight from the urn. It is an absolute stunner in winter. I so much like that it has despite all the tropical quality a distinct smoky tone and discreet sillage on my skin. Maybe that's also why the Caron extraits perform so well on me.
    That's my SotD.... mmmmmmm yummy good!
    You deserve some good music today.... best for a lovely day!

    Good afternoon everyone.

    We're having a warm phase here. The temps are as high as 32 celcius the past few days. Drops 22C at night.
    This will be the 5th year in a row that we've had abnormally warm winters. Sigh.

    I wore vintage Eau des Iles this morning.
    Will change and wear something else now.

    Hi Leesee Happy Birthday!

    Hedonist222, well, just come to visit us then. You could do a pit stop tour! We are all neighbours. Do you play golf?

    Bois Des Iles today. To town for a boozy lunch with friends then to a bar where a Big Band ( thirteen piece Glen Miller stylie) plays on a Saturday afternoon. Ha Ha. Very cheery.

    Dozens and dozens of balloons for you, Leesee, on your special day!
    Whilst my attendance and wearing of perfumes have been inconsistent of late, be doubtless, dear BN friends, my affection for you and fragrance is resolute and Brobdingnagian.

    Having had my fill of repair, maintenance, and organizational projects for a while, it's time for an improved routine starting today. I'm wearing a true favorite: ICONOfly Attache-Moi. Yummy amber tones, just right for winter, and a musk that sings like Aretha.

    Lovin' that music, Larimar. I'm chair dancing. You are such a wonderful reminder of how I need to have more fun.

    LOL, my own ornery brain has been calling that phenomenon "perfume hangover"! I like your phrase better, will borrow from you from now on!

    Agree with you, completely. Waking up to that drydown is the olfactory equivalent of waking up wrapped in the finest cashmere and silk. Just makes me want to start it all over again. No wonder they sell so much of the stuff!

    Meant to say earlier, really cool music choice, Larimar!

    Happy happy birthday Lessee!!! Do something FUN for yourself today.


    I am fighting a cold and this morning I am completely stuffed up...so I am scent-less. Which sucks (for the obvious reasons) but mostly because it's cold outside and I'm just DYING to wear something huge and spicy and sweet. I will have to do with the scent of Mentholatum and green tea. At least I don't have to go to work today. I plan on staying in all day & finishing my Murakami novel that I've been neglecting.

    Hugs to all...

    Sending Quarry a barrel of fun.

    Feel better, Mike.

    After my gym workout and shower I’m wearing Parfums de Coeur’s Fresh White Musk Fantasy body spray. This is one of my favorite white musks, cheesy packaging and all. I’ll pick something else for later. I’m really in the mood for these simple floral musks lately.

    Happy Birthday, Leesee. Hope your family will bring you joy as they are camping with you this weekend.

    It is noon here and my second attempt at getting up. I know I have to go to the library and then to work at the restaurant (shredding carrots for the oriental-inspired slaw, making and dressing an Italian-themed rotini salad, replenishing potato salad that they ate almost all last night, perhaps a purple cabbage salad. Oh yeah, and a lemon tart and a candied peel bread).

    Started in Caron Narcisse Noir, continuing in HdP Moulin Rouge.

    No Jicky, though that was a good one for truffle hunting. I'm trying to wear truffle appropriate scents this season, Fahrenheit seemed like a good choice. Oregon white truffes Tuber oregonense have a slight petrol odor and that seemed like a good match. Hopefully I'll find some black truffles today, I prefer the white truffles myself, but the black ones are just cooler looking and harder to find, so it's more of a thrill. Next time, I'll think I'll wear Dzing.

    I don't know how to describe it, but petrol to me (and probably no one else) means an odor that's gaseous, industrial and appealing and repellant at the same time. Truffles has this fatty rancid butter smell too, along with a pine odor. It's a strange smell, but good. Demeter should come out with a truffle scent if they haven't already.
    Tabac Blond would be a great choice, alas it's one I don't own.

    I'm in Fifi Chachnil on the the left (coriander, rose, amber and tobacco) and Eau Sauvage on the right (classified as an aromatic citrus chypre?) and the two are getting along very nicely.
    "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."
