    Default SOTD Wednesday 18th July 2012

    Good morning sleepyheads! Is no one up yet, or all you all too busy this morning? I have been at work all night, so tea and bed for me after my post.

    So, another Bex London from a sample; W1X, (The West End). They say "neo-vintage". I totally agree. Opens dry as a bone Iris with some wood already there, cedar. Then rose and other florals, it softens considerably and becomes slightly aromatic. Lovely. A little woody vanilla drydown. I could see this doing really well.

    Good morning Foustie and all of you too!

    Wearing Impossible Iris by Ramon Monegal this morning. I'm trying to decide wether I like it or not. Hope that wearing it today will help to clear my mind and make a good decision.



    It's another cloudy and colder day here. I wonder if it will rain soon... Been swimming in the morning, will be staying at home if it won't get warmer. It's a little bit too cold for a bike ride.

    That sounds very good. Another one to add to my "to try" list!

    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..."

    It's always such fun to come downstairs and see what our friends across the pond are up to first thing in the day! Iris abounds. Roberto that graphic is TOO funny. Almost went back to bed thinking on Danny's bike trip to work.

    Think I'll treat myself to

    Saso
    (Top notes: aldehydes, bergamot, lemon, green notes, fruity notes and hyacinth. Heart: jasmine, lily of the valley, orris root, rose, violet and ylang-ylang. Base: sandalwood, vetiver, benzoin, civet, amber, musk, tonka and vanilla...this does not do it justice)
    today.

    Good morning!

    Wearing Orange Cologne made by Wooznib. It's as wonderful as Twolf has been telling us. I knew it
    would be, T has excellent taste. I'd buy a bottle right now if it were available, hopefully it will be soon.




    Have a great day!

    Thank you! It is great to start morning with a smile.

    Today sampling Mona di Orio Tubereuse. Having regrets...Nope, no tuberose for me. I wish I went for Mr. Garner's Orange cologne...

    Have a good day, everyone!

    Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare today.

    It is unbelievably humid, but strong midday thundershowers are expected throughout the state today. Hopefully we'll get a bit of relief afterward.

    Two days in a row, now, I find myself succumbing to the utterly stifling heat and seeking out a bit of coolness via Uncle Serge's twin camphor flowers -- yesterday with Sarrasins and today with Tubereuse Criminelle. I'm not sure it's working, though.

    This is really horrible. No rain since early June, most of July in the 100s, and no break in the temps or sun in sight. How much longer can this go on? (she, asks, rhetorically)

    I'm in Vol de Nuit this morning, vintage EDT. Lovely but doesn't steal my heart like Shalimar or Sous le Vent. But it is a classic Guerlain after all, certainly no complaints here! I think they're all gorgeous. I only wish they made 'em like they used to!

    Have a great day, gang!

    whereas uk has recorded the wettest & coldest last 4 months since records began more than 100yrs ago!! i'd gladly swap our rain with your heatwave. apparently from next week we are going to have our own 'heatwave' and 'endure' temperatures of up to 27C!! (that's 80.6F).. wow, i'm almost scared. joke aside, i feel for you, too much of either one cannot be good. you should see the rotten roses, don't even have time to bloom. and 3 months ago i had a beautiful, amazing looking window box of campanullas (dalmatian), they are now completely rotten to the core and sad looking, just the leaves left.

    (not mine but this is how they used to look 3 months ago).

    L'Air du Temps Couture Edition, which seems more like the L'Air du Temps I loved in the 70's.

    I have to hide the bottle from my cat though, because it is covered with feathers!
