    Default SotD Friday, 13th July 2012

    Hello sweethearts!
    We had some downtime recently but let's hope that everything is fine now and that we won't have another break soon. The weather has changed here, it's quite cold and we have a mix of cloudy sky and sunny sky, in other words - typical Polish weather for summer.
    I'm wearing Eau Pour Le Jeune Homme from Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier

    Now I'm heading to the kitchen to bake a lemon cake. Have a good day (even thought it's "unlucky" Friday the 13th)

    Hello all. For synch Friday (vintage juice) I'm wearing Givenchy III from an old bottle I scored off the bay a couple of years back - and quite wonderful it is too.

    pg bois blond, it helps me imagine that i walk through a field of golden grain, in august, under a scorching sun, it's dry, it's hot, there's no shade, just a light breeze. never thought i wished for that, but after 4 months of continuous rain in london, this is what i want. have a good weekend everyone.

    Well done! Wear it in good health.

    Eau du Sud for me today. Citrus/Basil/Mint. Clean and soapy. One of the best if you like this kinda thing, and I do!!

    Going a wee bit of shopping with mum then taking her home today. We have had a really nice time. She is going off home with samples of Sud and Hadrien and somje decants to follow.

    Oh shit! It is Friday! What is this with me not knowing what day of the week it is? Again! I will enjoy synching later.

    I love Eau d'Hadrien but it quickly wears off from my skin, still haven't tried Eau du Sud, which sounds up my alley. You know I love the soapy, squeaky clean stuff.

    Eau du Sud comes highly recommended from me too and the staying power is superior to Eau d'Hadrien. BTW if you find EDH fleeting wait until you give Duel a whirl - my skin is extremely well behaved and Duel has the most abysmal longevity I've ever experienced from any fragrance.

    Jon, you read my mind! I'm on a hunt for a sample of Duel. One of our BN friends offered she'd try to get me a sample from AG boutique. If it works for me I'll definitely buy it. Nuit Etoilee is great and I just sampled Ninfeo Mio which also goes on my to-buy list.

    Hi Lucasai! The weather in Europe this year's been strange in general, I think. At least we have a nice one here today in London. Lemon cake sounds real good. Have fun baking!

    In the last few years we had the situation that summery weather in temperatures started in mid April or in May and the summer was over in the mid July, but this year we didn't have hot April or May and now we have some mixed conditions. Thanks, the cake is already out of the oven.

    Hi everyone. I'm in blissful Sa Majeste La Rose today.

    Just read about Chanel's pop-up store in Covent Garden. So looking forward to visiting the store.

    Not long before the Olympics. I wasn't all that enthused about it and had nothing planned, but I've been given free tickets for the opening ceremony and a few games. Is anyone going?

    Have a great Friday!
    Do happy

    SotM has been the wonderfully ethereal Avignon from a sample which formed part of my first BN care package. I've only ever dabbed it in miniscule amounts previously to eek it out but today I thought blow it and I'm giving it a full wearing, all my work colleagues, young and old love it! One want to wear it as her wedding perfume! I thought it was a perfect church wedding fragrance for the service, maybe not for the reception and wedding night

    Hi everyone, so glad we're back!

    SOTD is Serge Lutens Gris Clair. Starts out coolly austere, grows gently warm and sensual, a transition I find incredibly appealing.

    Happy Friday, all!

    So happy I get to talk with my BN friends this morning! Thought we were in for a long absence this time, glad I was wrong.

    Lucasai, yet another hobby we have in common! I love baking, too. Having a craving for lemon cake now!

    In sync in vintage Chanel No.22 EDC. I smell great, we all do!

    Hello, everyone, also not synching yet, but very glad BN is back. I had craving for aldehydes this morning and sampling Calandre given to me by one very kind BNer. I will find something vintage for this evening.

    Lucasai, your lemon cake sounds yummy!

    PerfumedLady, I see we both had cravings for aldehydes today.

    This morning I am waiting for the shop in Oregon to open, because of time difference I have another hour and a half. Fingers crossed they still have Pallida in stock.
