Thread: SotD Tuesday 7th August 2012
Hello fumees! Time to start our today's lovely chit chat about perfume we're wearing today. It's getting colder and there were recent reports about some nasty weather fronts going through Poland. Just read about some heavy hailstorms with ping-pong ball sized hail... What is happening to this world, to it's climate.
I'm in Penhaligon's Eau Sans Pareil, lovely perfume. Will review it at Chemist in the Bottle later today.
I am in Jubilation 25 by Amouage.
I am checking in next to the fashionable Dame G. in Liu...
Moi? Jicky EdP... naturellement!
Good morning folks!
Another day in Douceur de Vanille.
This stuff is addictive!
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
good morning, today is parfumerie generale l'eau guerriere
Good morning, everyone.
Lucas; would love to know what you think of Eau Sans Pareil.
I'm in Roja Dove Scandal this morning.
Good morning! G, L you are both so chic today. Gorgeous pictures.
I will join Lucasai in his house, with Juniper Sling, and hope for a sunny day and maybe a G&T later, or a Pimms.
Good morning.. Today Rose Absolue, YR.
Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?
Good morning !.
Dame G and Baroness L - what a divine smelling pair

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..."

Afternoon fragrant friends
Today was a day I needed freshness but more not my usual go to of AE. My hand strayed to EL Azuree then fell on to the fabulous cologne that is Dior's Escale a Portofino. Compliments a gogo from my work colleagues. Shame that it lacks the longevity I would like but that just means I get to spray lovely lemon clouds of it frequently. Makes me feel elegant and soinee
Hello everyone -
I'm in Climat, with all its bright-blue-summer-sky-with-fluffy-white-clouds brand of aldehydic glory.
Y'all have a great day!
Good morning all! I'm wearing Le Baiser Du Dragon by Cartier today! Love this, must find a full bottle somewhere.
Tech-writing and editing away a morning in CDG 2 Man. The scent lends itself to focus.
Admiring the much more ornate and classical beauties worn upthread, of course.
Takin Mom to the Dr. again today for follow-up of bloodwork.
SotD is once again L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger.
Hedonist, your pictures make me swoon. A tropical paradise would be really great right now.
SotD is Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise, with notes of bergamot, neroli, wild fennel flower, star anise, oleander, tuberose, frangipani, purple vanilla orchid, clove, white amber, vetiver, vanilla bourbon absolute and tonka bean. Not quite right for a hot summer day, but I had the urge to wear it.
Have a great day!
O Pour Homme by Lancome
Ninfeo Mio by Annick Goutal.
This is the sort of summer day where trying to outdo nature would be futile. Having just finished sampling rose after roase thru Whitefluffy's Parfums de Rosine sample pass, I am staying floral with the jasmine vial from Donna Karan Essence. Later I may layer this with the tiniest spritz of the Weil Masculine Kipling as a dress rehearsal in my search for a perfect leather/tobacco/white floral.
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!

"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in — or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."
-- Eckhart Tolle
