Thread: SotD: Tuesday, 5th June, 2012
Roja Dove Aoud
Have a lovely Tuesday!
Aoud Damascus by Montale
Ooooooooh, sultry look, G. ^^
I'm in a sultry dose of Jicky EdP today.
Best to all
Couldn't commit this morning..
Sampled Montale:Jasmin Full (got a slight plastic vibe from my sample), Dior: Amber nuit (Masculine references for me here - they say scent is most powerful a memory trigger. If I ever pass a man wearing this I would have to follow him!), Guerlain: London (bit disappointed with this on first impressions)... So I showered and am sampling
Mon precieux nectar Guerlain ...yep this is lovely....and guerlain have apparently reduced this greatly in price. Looking for the almond, so far it's distinctly there but as supporting player and coming forward. Nice.
Amouage - Dia Man
Good morning all !. SotD is Amouage Reflection.
Back to the grindstone tomorrow but still making the most of the elongated weekend for the time being. Maybe a small tribute to the old girl at the palace is appropriate .

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! Jon, thanks for the lovely music. Three cheers to your Queen.
SOTD is L'Artisan Parfumeur Bois Farine which I find enormously soothing and easy to wear even with its offbeat character.
Wish you all a very good day. xoxo

Kiliwia, best wishes for the doctor's visit!
OJ Tiare extrait today from a sample. Perfect for sitting under the awning in the rain, relaxing with just my own company. I have struggled with OJ fragrances before. Either I've been anosmic or they have simply disappeared on my skin but this, well this is glorious! Thank you Cacio.
Thinking of Kiliwia ~~~~~~ healing and wholesome vibes at today's visit
I woke up this morning to the sight and sound of a soft rain through the open window. I love waking up like that - gently. It has been so cool here lately, not that I'm complaining. We have a long summer to go. Some vintage Eau Arpege suits my mood this morning.
Perfect music to honor the Queen, Jon.
Thinking of you today, Kiliwia.
My best to everyone.

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
Smell Bent Prairie Nymph today. This is probably the only scent that I'm actually careful applying, a tiny spritz to one wrist, press them together, wipe the applicator at the nape of the neck, that's it. This is so loud that I kind of feel like I should be lifting it out of the perfume box with tongs, wearing the heavy gloves and safety glasses. But it's oh so lovely and I do love having something so intensely scented, nothing else acts like this on me
Arancia di Capri Blu Mediterraneo
Trayee. Gorgeous, but a bit overwhelming in warm weather
