    Default SotD Wednesday, 18 April 2012

    Good morning folks,

    'Who' are you taking with you for a stroll today?



    Sous le Vent in my case.

    Enjoy your day!

    Morning playmates!! Switzerland was tops-very expensive though. My friend works there ( most importantly gets paid locally), so not so painful for her...but it's even pricier than London...!

    Happy birthday for yesterday Coconut! Hope you had a great day.

    Kiliwia - thank you for being my first BN friend! That was very sweet and unexpected (still learning how all this works)

    SOTD: Arabian Wood: Tom Ford, someone on this thread chose this a few days ago which has directly prompted me to reach for it this wet and grey day in London. Thank you AW fan.

    KarmaLee, I am sorry to hear of your loss, take care of yourself in this painful time. XxX

    Have a good day all.

    Oh and in the lane of something to declare?...Mitzah on the way thru terminal one. So bad I haven't even taken the cellophane off yet it looks so pretty in its round column packaging! Yep OCD going on in the perfume wardrobe chez whwend.

    Too early for fragrance yet other than whiff de cold caravan

    The showers at this site leave A LOT to be desired, the shower block is unheated

    it's blowing a gale and "siling" it down. (siling is Yorkshire dialect for describing rain when it's vicious and coming down sideways so fast it hurts when it hits you. It's from old Norse like so many Yorkshire and Cumbrian dialect words).
    Mr Ali wants to walk into town and back, that is soooo NOT going to happen

    Happy belated birthday to Coconut

    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,

    As others have remarked, it is cold, wet and rainy in England today. Blech.

    You, UKers, stay warm and dry, cycling or otherwise. Our storms woke me up at the ung*dly hour of 2 am, been awake ever since and having about 12 hours of work to look forward to. LOL

    JR, thanks for your remark. I am a foodie, and now I enjoy working at the restaurant being a Lady with a Knife and a French Pastry Girl in one. Seriously, I go to World Market (the name of the store selling exotic, hand-crafted goods from all over the world but mostly China here) -- and then again, it is some 90 miles away -- the first department I visit is Groceries, for chocolate, teas and canned vegetables. Have I told you that in my immediate past life I was Chinese and now I am able to thrive on vegetables and rice, provided they are sweet and salty? (I know another BNer who was a cat in her/his immediate past life -- fish, seafood, Creole, etc.)

    Easy one, L - my somewhat coincidental answer comes in the form of todays birthday greeting.

    Good morning everyone and a very happy birthday to Strollyyourlobster.

    Nice kitties boys!!

    I recieved a surprise belated birthday present from a friend last night, Penhaligons Juniper Sling. What a lovely, thoughtful gift. Penhaligon's gifts are so beautifully presented too. I was quite overwhelmed. It opens beautifully, a euphoric blast of juniper and lime, very like Hermes Voyage, then a pronounced pepper, then, surprisingly, leather. All of this sounds lovely but I am afraid that there is a problem (oh blush! I feel so guilty for criticising a gift, eeeek, but I wouldn't be anything other than honest with you), The problem is that it all happens in the course of a few minutes then pfffft.... It's not gone, there is a nice peppery leather very close to the skin if you truffle about for it. It will be beautiful used as an Eau De Cologne during ones morning toilette methinks.

    I have had alook at the reviews and almost everyone feels the same.

    Take care all.

    first day back to work in Mitsouko vintage edt (with a dab of her voluptuous sister Jubilation 25 here and there)
    "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."

    Good morning!

    Whwend, I'm glad you had a good time in Switzerland. My husband went
    there on business once and I do remember him saying things were really expensive.
    He forgot his camera at home, so he bought one there, ended up being a very
    expensive mistake, lol.

    Happy Birthday, Strollyourlobster! I hope you have a great day!

    A spritz of Iris Pallida by L’Artisan for me this morning, from a decant. It is cool and rainy here today. Which is good – we badly need the water.

    Happy Birthday, Strollyourlobster!

    Shahor! Lol…!! Thank you for the laugh this morning. I was beginning to feel like Henri here myself, but now I feel better for having had a giggle. Very funny!

    I agree that Roberto smells wonderful – every day.

    Good morning everyone -

    I'm in Cuir de Russie this morning, my usual double dose of parfum plus edt. Y'all have a fantastic day!



    Oh, Wolfie, is that how it works? Interesting - I think I must have been a cat in my immediate past life, too! If I'm eating meat, chances are very good that it's fish or seafood ...um, and quite possibly Creole, if not Cajun. Waitaminute, lol ...were you referring to me?
    Also, twelve hours on little sleep is tough! Here's a hug and some love to give you a little extra strength and fortitude - ((Wolfie))

    Adding another Happy Birthday wish for Strollyourlobster - have a wonderful and fragrant day!

    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

    Sampling Dia today, so beautiful but my skin doesn't like it. I have a very itchy wrist from Dia today; unfortunate too, this rarely happens to me.
