    Default SotD Monday, 4 June 2012

    Good morning,

    My head feels as if a truck drove over it, so I prescribe myself another bucket of espresso...
    I'm in Iris Bleu Gris and realize I have an iris dilemma. I may have to conclude that iris would be a case for a bespoke, but nothing seems 'perfect' for me. I might have to try pouring that Apres l'Ondée bottle over me.... in order to get some sillage out of it.

    Best to all!

    Chanel Eau de Cologne today for the citrus sniff. It's still officially the weekend in the UK until Wednesday.

    It will help clear my head, apparently my head and liver are trying to tell me the Beer Festival was not a good idea yesterday. Especially for someone who rarely imbibes.

    Hugs to all on this Monday! It's such a cold, sad and gloomy day here. And it's so gray outside because of the thick clouds covering the sky. How I hate this kind of weather! Makes me drowsy and yawning all day, even a big cup of my favourite, strong tea seems to have no effect on me today. One word to say - boo!

    I'm a fragrance twin with Larimar (hat tip my friend) sampling Iris Bleu Gris by MPG today.

    I really can't decide whether I like this Iris Bleu Gris or not. I liked the opening, then I wasn't really into the iris&leather phase and now after few hours it settled into something I like.

    Good morning everyone Today it's only 2 days left before the oral exam and all I can think about is applying for more jobs. It's a rather warm day so will try to stop worrying and instead go outside on the balcony to study. ( about 12-14 degrees now) Have a smooth start of the week all Sotd-wise I'm both craving Dzing!, L'ombre dans l'eau and Madame X. Will see what I end up with later.

    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..."

    Montale Patchouli leaves from an old sample...earthy, nearly edible, very grounding, just the ticket.
    "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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    Good morning !. Another of the lucky ones off work until Wednesday here . Just about to dodge the showers and depart for a pub lunch by the Grand Union Canal.

    Monday was a public holiday in NZ (18 more minutes of it left, actually). So not quite "was", still "is" I've spent most of the day indoors reading and wanted something very tranquil and soft to wear. Here it is - L'eau d'Hiver.

    Good afternoon all! Horribly cold spring day today and I think my SOTD works for that.

    Decided to try Blask by Humiecki & Graef. I am rather impressed and do like it, but just don't love it enough for a full bottle (yet). Maybe I'll try it again, or I'll give in to my feelings and buy a decant soon.

    Perfume appeals to my nose the way music appeals to my ears, exquisite food to my taste buds, photography to my eyes, and great loving from my man to my sense of touch.

    I can safely conclude, then, that PERFUME IS ART in its purest form.

    As an artist, I therefore have a responsibility to buy as much perfume as I can. You know, to learn about art and all.

    I agree that iris can be difficult. I like it best when it's not in the forefront, but rather adding powderiness to an otherwise well-blended mix, a la a lot of Chanels. I dislike it when it's too earthy and rooty.

    I'm wearing Opium Fleur Imperiale for a cloudy Monday. Twelve more days of school.

    I'm in vintage Metal for modern dance ...somehow just a perfect combination. Y'all have a great 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

    Oh, well this thread needs some more iris, so here I am in Iris 39. We really do seem to be having some sort of "Year of the Iris" here this spring! Of course, iris loving is a permanent, year round state for me.

    Fleurine, I like this roll you're on! I loved Fleur Oriental since my first sampling last winter and it has become very serious! Love it more with every wearing. Just makes me so happy to smell!
