    Default SOTD Thursday 3rd May 2012

    Morning everyone!

    Well I was going to wear something really special today but I read lucasai's review of HdP Noir Patchouli with my morning coffee and so I couldn't resist a little dibble dabble of that!

    I will wear my wee specially later!

    Have a good day everyone!

    Good afternoon dear ones!

    Im wearing Iris Silver Mist today.



    Its too good. I'll get another one. I cannot risk a reformulation. I sincerely doubt that a reformulation would result in a more intense/natural orris root rendering than the current formula.

    Good morning !. Glad to see you are out and about again, G. Not so lively here at work and in need of a pick-me-up - a glass of home made schnapps sounds like just the tonic. Calling Austria

    Up to see my daughter off to school, but crawling back into bed now-- I've had too many late nights and not enough ZZZZs!

    I will be testing a few samples obtained in a swap later, when I'm more awake.

    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..."

    Lilybelle, I have also had my fair share of rose disappointments this past weekend, including: Caron Delire de Roses, Diptyque Eau Rose and even Rosine new Glam Rose (I thought I finally found my dream -- sweet, with lytchi and raspberry, getting powdery with wear -- No! it goes completely awry as time passes becoming musky and high-pitched, with this unpleasant pantyhose undertone).

    Thanks to L. for thinking about me re:quince. Not much of a drinker (I drank all I could some 20 years ago, I think?), I would enjoy some jam/preseves.

    Have been wearing Cabaret EdP (transparent bottle without red-tinted triangles), TJMaxx find (100ml for $16.99) and enjoying it immensely. The ambrette note is muted and shows up only for a short time in the beginning, with roses and other florals taking centerstage.

    Still miffed about BN in general, but I will get over and return to exposing my charming cranky self.

    Good morning everyone Had to get up early today since my second interview for the assignment was scheduled then. The interview went well, and I'm again a littlebit more optimistic about the whole assignment ( despite the fact that I lost one of my planned informants in the veru last minute and haven't found a new one yet) Sotd is #19. Have a great day all!

    Good morning everyone!

    I'm going for a run in Eau des Merveilles, then I'll contemplate what's on the schedule for Jazz Fest today ...maybe Ani DiFranco, maybe Florence and the Machine ....or maybe we'll just skip it today and think about it tomorrow. My parents are away so we're doing some house-sitting, which actually means hanging out by the pool with a book and a cocktail ....so much more enticing at the moment than crowds and bustle. I need a vacation.





    ((Twolf)) - I've been thinking of you.
    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

    Good morning gang!

    Sampling Jo Malone's White Lilac & Rhubarb. 30 Roses, I see why this has become one of your most used scents! I'd argue that this deserves a spot on my most natural lilacs list. This really makes me think of being out in our yard when lilacs are blooming. Not with my nose right up to the blossoms, though; this makes me think of that lilac scented trail that travels around on the wind. The "sillage" coming off those bushes is what my husband and I love best about growing them. Will re-spray WL&R for him when he gets home later; he's going to love this.
    The nose wants what it wants!

    Haven't decided what to wear today. It's raining, a nice spring rain, and I'm not sure if I want a scent to spice things up, or a scent to go with the rain. I would love some lavender, but since my actual real lavender plants are in bloom, I don't want to offend them. Y'all smell great, I'm sure, but many of you BNers today are wearing frags I've never had the opportunity to try.

    (((Hugs))) Twolf. It has been frustrating lately, that’s for sure. You know, I wound up wearing Grès Cabaret last night, too. It is one of my very favorite rose fragrances, one of the perfect ones, in my humble opinion. It is elegant, yet accessible, skin scenty, and nothing overdone about it. And it leaves the most wonderful scent on clothes, too. I especially like it in warm weather, which is what we’re having now – warm, rainy, humid, close. Yuck.

    Perfumedlady, I agree about the JM lilac fragrance. That one is a winner. Leaves, stems, blossoms, all of it, and the rhubarb is restrained. 30 Roses sent me a decant and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Full bottle worthy if you’re looking for lilac.

    Tomorrow’s Blast for the Past Scent Synch suits my current mood. I’ve been enjoying the oldies lately.

    Carolina Girl, you always smell lovely. A lot of the fragrances Basenoters wear are not available for sniffing here either – I order a sample online if it is something I’m dying to try. But I’m happy with my tried and true wardrobe, too. I know what you mean about rainy day fragrance decisions, is it better to complement the rain, or combat it? I usually go for complement, unless I’m feeling glum and need a picker upper.

    I’m sampling Acqua di Sicilia by Santa Maria Novella. Talk about a picker upper! It is a lovely, juicy mandarin/citrus cologne. Just my thing (thank you, L.!). I like all of the fragrances I have sampled from SMN. I would love to go visit them in person some day. Mimi linked an article (was it from a flight magazine, Mims?) a while back that had a feature on SMN. It looks beautiful.

    I might go with Grès Cabaret again this afternoon, I don’t know yet.

    Lots of love for all here ! Hugs for Twolfie. Fleurine - you smell great. How does Muguet Blanc compare to Diorissimo ? ( the modern Diorissimo )

    This morning joining Fleurine in clouds of muguet - Diorissimo EDT. I actually prefer it to the extrait.

    I hadn't noticed that tomorrow's sync is blast from the past, so I guess I am getting a head start. Today I am wearing Farnesiana ED[T/P]? from a 90's-era decant given to me by a friend. I am going into the office today, so I dabbed it via cotton ball instead of spraying, wanted to keep it more subtle.

    I've been busy at work, which is why I haven't been participating here as much. The good news is that I applied for a permanent job at the company where I've been working on contract for the last 9 months. I was offered the job starting this week, and have been settling well into my new team.
