    Default Thursday 12 April, 2012

    Good Morning,


    How is everybody ?
    SotD is Jicky (extrait).
    Tonight I'm off to the ballet to see some new works - music will be perfomed live by Mark Ronson and Boy George, costumes designed by Gareth Pugh etc. Should be interesting! Not yet sure what I'll be wearing.

    Have a lovely Thursday, all.

    Good morning !. SotD is Acqua di Parma Mirto di Panarea.



    Enjoy your evening, G.

    Good job the company here is worth coming back for on a daily basis because this is virtually unusable at the moment (though admittedly I'm not exactly noted for my patience ). Off for some more sea air to banish the frustration. Back later ....

    Has everybody tried this and possibly found it as good as I do? It comes for an absolute steal, in particular stateside. It makes current Shalimar look very cheap. The reviews are very mixed here. I might agree about the leathery-metallic side of opoponax. I get lots of bergamot/citrus in the opening and I think it is rather unsweet, more dry, but soft and increasingly powdery with progression.

    Great pics here today. Enjoy your evening, G.!
    Best to all

    I can't seem to get anything to post on here today, but let's
    have another try!
    I am enjoying the last few days of the Easter holidays relatively
    pain-free now my back is healing nicely. I shall celebrate with some
    vintage Arpege.

    Good morning!

    The French Quarter Festival starts today, and I'll be enjoying the merriment in L'Instant de Guerlain. Y'all have a fantastic day!

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

    Evangeline! That looks so fun. I am working the second shift of a not-nice double. Still wearing APLS from hier soir. The stuff is tenacious, I'll give it that.

    Good Morning, y'all! I started the day with Madame Rochas (hadn't smelled it in some time.) Always starts out reminding me of bug spray and then gets better. Later I think I'll go with Vol de Nuit, like ineespenses.

    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..."

    Kewart, very glad to know that you're feeling better. Continued best wishes to you.

    Today I'm testing and enjoying Prada Candy. It's really lovely! Starts out caramel-sweet, similar to Pink Sugar, then grows powdery and sensual as benzoin and musk kick in. Very, very nice.

    Wish you all a great day.

    Cool photos of the double decker bus! We don't have them here.

    Kewart, I'm glad you are not in pain any more.

    It's a sunny, lovely day here but I have not yet chosen my scent. Still organizing my day's plans.

    Gandhajala, enjoy the ballet tonight.

    Larimar, I have not tried MP&G Or des Indes, but you make it sound very nice.

    Evangeline, have fun at the festival.

    I love all the pics, and everyone smells wonderful in here.

    I’m wearing Calèche from last night, but I’m leaning toward Je Reviens today.

    Hurray ! We're back. Thank you to Grant !

    Gandhajala - lovely re. the ballet.
    Danny- you like Routemaster buses ? This is for you !

    I was pulled along to a Routemaster type festival long ago and never forgot it .
    Evangeline- love that poster. One day I'll get to New Orleans.

    Larimar- my scent of the moment is Absolue Pour Le Soir. For you ! One spray for now. Not really that skanky when sprayed but warm and ambery . Even a touch milky.

    BBW Midnight Pomegranate, got this as a stocking stuffer I think. It's not so bad - I was afraid the BBW base was going to annoy me, maybe because is the body stray it's not so bad.
