    Default SotD: Monday 12th March, 2012

    Good Morning Everyone,

    Another working week is upon us.
    I'm off to see a new opera tonight called Miss Fortune. Quite excited, though not sure what I'll be wearing. For now, I'm in:



    31 Rue Cambon

    Have a lovely day, all.

    Eau de Parfum
    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..."

    Good morning all !. Very pleased to be back in the fold after an unavoidable weekend away. Our home computer should hopefully have been fixed this morning so I'll be back for more catching up later.

    Sending more healing vibes in Wolfie's direction.

    G, enjoy the opera this evening.

    Good morning all

    Wow the opera gandhajala - enjoy - will be interested to see what you choose as your SotE...

    Myself - I am wearing Untitled : Maison Martin Margiela, actually no, it's rather wearing me. I was looking for a nice sharp crisp greeness to go with the sunny day but I feel a bit dragged down by a heaviness in this I wasn't expecting. It's become better than it opened on me, but I will be dousing over it with a replacement soon as this wasn't what I was looking for.....

    I shall just have to get a bottle of Cristalle !!! I only have a sample of the Eau Verte though - still that may do the green kick trick.

    enjoy your Monday folks...

    I'm with the early birds this morning! Haven't dressed just yet, but I think I'm gonna wear ... Eau de Shalimar. Gotta go sweet talk my professors into letting me graduate on time despite having missed one required course somehow- yikes!- and this is my best sweetheart scent. Hehe. Plus I just enjoy the heck out of it.

    Have a great day!
    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    Great ad, gandhajala - I used to have a bit of an obsession with Erté. And a new opera - what fun! I'll look forward to your review.

    I'm wearing my newest acquisition today - Bottega Veneta. Lovely! I know this one has been popular with fragrance junkies, but I kind of hope it doesn't become too ubiquitous - I mean I hope enough people buy it to keep it in production, but not so many that I smell it on someone every time I'm in public. (I suppose that's sort of selfish of me, but I can't help it.)

    I love the BN people, my pampered toe does too.

    L., that's the first time in my memory that we have the same musical likes. Whoo-hoo!
    (Today seems like Jefferson Starship Count On Me day, good-hearted and melodical pop about emerald eyes and china perfume, hahaha). We have spring here full trottle too: fat robins started marking the car and yelling at each other for not pitching in enough (I s'pose, and Hi to Mimster's Pugsly), although the shower last evening did not quite wash away all the snow. I already wore off-white slacks yesterday (fully lined, like they should be, mind you!).

    L. (another L. in this case, OK?), I also enjoy reading about how people live -- spend their days and evenings, what they eat and wear, how they communicate with their loved ones.

    Seems like What We Do In Paris is a must to try, isn't it?

    Good morning!

    Almost all of our snow is gone, it's raining and very windy today. I don't know if
    winter is over, but I sure appreciate the break from the cold.

    Gandhajala, enjoy your evening at the opera!

    SotD is Divine L'etre Aime Femme, a rich oriental floral. It's nice but a little
    heavy for today.

    My crocus bulbs popped into bloom over the weekend. Dark purple, lavender, yellow & white everywhere! And the daffodils and tulips are coming along right behind them. Ah, spring! However, the weather man is a filthy liar; promised sunshine today but it looks like it's about to storm.

    Hello, sweeties. Love that video from yesterday, 30Roses.

    I've a mild sunburn and it's raining -- spring is thoroughly fixed in place, I think.

    Bulgari Au Thé Blanc for an afternoon of toting packages to the P.O. and perfumes to the zoo. I love de-bulking the house of sit-around boxes.

    My SotD is LesNez Turtle Vetiver Front, which includes notes of vetiver, coconut lactone, moss, and ambergris. On me, this one comes on very strong and raw at first, but then settles into a salty vetiver that's not far from my beloved Annick Goutal Vetiver. I like it at lot! I wonder if Isabelle Doyen made that one, too? Can't find evidence of that online, but I'm guessing that she did!
