    Thumbs up SOTD Wednesday 11 April 2012

    Good Morning Everyone

    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..."

    Happy Birthday RainDropSparkle



    Warum - hope you are feeling better soon.

    Fantastic, Jon! I am sure you had a good bite last night. Do enjoy your time!
    SotM is still the Pois de Senteur from last nights wee spill... the whole upper floor is perfumed for quite some time I suppose.
    After a hot bath, I feel Vega will call my name.
    Nope, sorry folks, I won't be back at work until next Monday!
    I took my mom to the station, so she is travelling back all the way from east to the very west. She has a Shalimar purse spray, my bottle of Vol de Nuit extrait with a couple of drops left and her beloved My Sin as a gift (the second but last of my tester flacons, so I still have one more for her later ) with her. My mom never quite had any real exposure to the perfume greats. She fell quite heavily for Knize Ten... seriously, how cool is that?!! I'm getting her a big boy's bottle for her 70th birthday this summer. Terrible! Time is flying (70!!!!!) and the simple facts of life are often frightening. Time is so precious.... isn't it?

    Morning all. Hope everyone is well. Happy Birthday RainDropSparkle - have a lovely day! Time certainly is flying. I can't quite believe my boy is 16. He could get married - shudder - over my dead body!

    Traversee du Bosphore today. Less turkish delight on me and more papery marshmallow, but I like it all the same.

    Happy Birthday to our RainDropSparkle and please treat yourself to something nice -- you are so worth it.

    Bombastic L. -- really? IMNSHaPO, they lacked a citrus-based something and a berry crunch possibly with nuts and baked peaked egg whites meringue. Rhubarb will be good this year (as PerfumedLady noticed in her part of the world) -- I checked ours yesterday -- but not until another week or two, it is still too fragile to violate.

    Happy birthday, RainDropSparkle!

    Thanks to an extraordinarily generous friend, SOTD is Bottega Veneta, a beautiful, refined floral-fruited suede leather that is supple and luxe. I'm getting associations to Daim Blond, Boxeuses, Gucci Rush. Bonus: Unsolicited compliment from my better half shortly after I put some on.

    Notes include bergamot, pink pepper, jasmine, spices, plum, leather, patchouli, oak moss

    Best to all!

    No SotD for me yet. It’s a gym morning. I’m still enjoying last night’s Opium edt. I am now the proud possessor of a vintage mini. If you use two drops, no more, it is wonderful. It makes me want to take up smoking again, though!

    Jon, I’m glad you’re enjoying yourself. Nice about the weather.

    Feel better soon, ((Warum)).

    Larimar, yes the time we have with our loved ones is very precious. We need to love and appreciate each other while we have the chance.

    Knit, I think it’s great that your dad is taking ballroom dancing at 88.

    Happy Birthday, Raindropsparkle! I’ve always loved your username.

    Oh yucks. Life is too short to clean your oven!! I saw a van the other day. Someone has started a business doing home visits to clean ovens. At the time I though it too much of an extravagance, but today.....

    Anyway, its' done and I am scrubbed up and in Nicolai, Temps D'Une Fete. I find it hard to describe. A green floral. Wet flowers then a sprite of a narcissus. Really, really lovely.

    Knit, every Saturday afternoon in Glasgow there can be found a group of men and women, in their seventies, eighties, and yes nineties, in their best bib and tucker, out to hear a big band or swing/jazz, and to dance. They have been doing it for decades.The gents are handsome and the ladies have fantastic legs and neat figures at all ages. It is the dancing you see. So good for your dad!!

    Happy Birthday RainDropSparkle! (I like your name, too!)

    SotD is Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare.

    Well, today stated off as "one of those days". My daughter had a project to take to school so last night I offered her a ride so she wouldn't have to juggle it on the bus. We got to the school and as she stepped out of the car, I looked in the back seat and saw...she had forgotten to put the project in the car! Back home I went, and then back to the school with the project.

    Then at 7:40 I gave Mom her wake up call and reminded her (again, having reminded her last night) that she had to fast for her blood tests this morning. Too late-- she'd gotten up extra early and had eaten a tomato! Had to cancel the tests and reschedule for next Tuesday. I now have to figure out how to stop her from eating breakfast that morning. She ignores signs that I leave. I may have to go over really early and camp out in her living room until she wakes up. Her memory is getting worse....

    This afternoon I have to pick up my daughter and take her to the dentist. I hope she doesn't forget and get on the bus home-- at the rate we're going today, anything is possible!!

    I love reading this thread every morning and catching up with all.

    Happy Birthday, RainDropSparkle--your name alone made me smile!

    I love hearing the parent stories. My own mother is loving Chanel right now, and wore it during her long stay at a physical rehab center to heal from chemotherapy side effects. Now she is home and still smelling lovely.

    Today, I am kicking off my renewed dedication to my writing: marketing a screenplay and planning how to complete the draft of my novel. I have some errands to run, and DZING! shall follow me lightly in a fragrant cloud.

    The day will get better, 30Roses!

    Good Morning everyone, I woke up thinking of Renee (rtamara41) so it was inevitable that I wear Mitsouko (vintage extrait) as my SOTD. With a tiny spritz, on my arm, of the vintage Eau de Cologne version also. Wow, this stuff is so satisfying. The extrait has this green, bitter, almost absinthe-like pungency to it that is irresistible.




    Larimar - your Mom has wonderful taste, I see it runs in the family.
    Lilybelle - yep, just a tiny dab of vintage Opium is just enough. I think it's interesting that you have 'smoking' associations with it. For me, when I wear it, I think of being a kid when this came out and watching my family at some party dancing to disco music (probably my Mom or someone wore Opium??) It just smells so 70's, to me. Which I love.
    Roberto - that Rocabar ad/photo is great. I never liked the scent, but I do appreciate it's aesthetic/style.

    Going to the orthopedist to have my arm xrayed, and then to work....co-workers already texting me.

    I love your screen name RainDropSparkle!

    There is always a lot of FONDANT in the SotD thread...no scent yet.

    Today I am in a liberal slathering of my Cathedral in Flames. Giving away (5) 10ml descants to stateside contributers to today's Sotd thread. Pm me.

    I am super excited about the plants I have been raising to help keep from going extinct, have started to open up. They are called nepenthe. A rare pitcher plant.
