    Default SOTD - Wednesday 1st August 2012

    Morning fragrant friends. Am I really first?

    SotD is contemporary Shalimar EdP.

    Still lovely after the first 5 screechy minutes. Shame it has the longevity of a gnat

    Good Morning. A very happy fragrant August my dear friends


    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 everyone. Up early ( at least for me) to catch the flight home. A shame to leave the ( for once) beautiful weather here. Also rather anxius what will await me at home,all though I don't really expect the (ex?)bf to be there... Sotd is Sa majeste la rose. Got a job interview ( over the internet)tomorrow,so will probably focus on that instead of all the emotional stress. Hope you all have a great day.

    Danny, my sister, her husband and my two teenage nieces are there. They were really fortunate to get tickets last year. The girls are swimmers, so they are beside themselves with excitment to be able to watch the swimming. And they are so excited to be in London, which we know is just the most glamourous city. Oh and the youngest tells us that Paloma Faith walked past them yesterday.

    SOTD, nothing yet, am going into town, so I will try something there.

    After fitful summer semi-insomnia, at last giving in to starting the day.

    Began with Puig Agua Lavanda bath products and then soaked in the cologne, now trying CB I Hate Perfume: In The Library over top, planning to punctuate with Norma Kamali Incense throughout the day, 'cause I'll be in a library all day and lavender+books+incense is a major comfort scent. So hedonist, we can be eventual long-distance partners in incense crime.

    Oh update: In The Library is entirely imperceptible on me, past the point of any water perfume subtlety trip. Anosmic? I may get a needlepoint dose of mediocre vanilla and cheap pebbled leather. "Shh, this is a library" taken to its absurdist conclusion? I'll simply rub down with the dust of real books. Incense it is.

    Morning friends. Today I am in my Orange Cologne. I have been thinking of changing the name for some time (because it is a bit decieving). While i was reading the other day I cam upon a passage about Orange Blossoms being worn traditionally at weddings to promote fecundity (fertility), and that the orange was the proverbial apple gifted from Jupiter to Juno. What do you think of the name "Jupiter to Juno"? Have a great day everyone!

    I like that name, Wooznib.

    Jailia! today, plenty of it and I have a travel spray too just in case it fades. Because this is one happy smell. The 5 year old is my scent twin today, LOL, she is off to visit grandma for a couple of days and asked for a spray of the Jailia this morning, so she will be smelling good at her abuela's today. And we convinced her to put on clothes. She has spent the summer pretty much in her panties, like a little trailer trash kid, just did not want to get dressed. Figured it was OK, she is starting Kindergarten in a couple of weeks and will have to get dressed soon enough, and it does save on laundry

    Stuck home with a pulled ligament in my left arch—no idea how that happened—on a sunny upper 70s day. Keeping in sync with the Weil passaround I started, I have the very very green Weil de Weil* to my right, comparing it to a classic green Chanel 19 EdP (thank you TWolf!) to my left. I shall now retire to the front yard where I will do crossword puzzles and sulk cheerfully.

    Hello all. Best wishes to those feeling under the weather or laid up with ailments - get well soon.

    Wearing La Petite Robe Noire, the new one, from a sample. When I first tried this I thought it was the olfactory equivalent of being hit in the chops with a black forest gateau - it was so sweet and sickly - but it softens quite quickly and has lovely drydown. Growing on me I think.

    Quarry, you have my $ympathie$, dear. I went through a root canal that wound up as an implant that took the better part of a year to complete. It was worth it, though, in the end. I am living pretty much on a shoestring myself at present, so you are not alone! xo
