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 !.

I don't know much about medicine, but I know what I like. -- S.J. Perelman
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..."

SOTD is Vivienne Westwood Anglomania. I love this study in contrasts -- cool and warm, tart and sweet, fresh and rich.
Notes include cardamom, coriander, green tea, rose otto, nutmeg, violet, vanilla, amber, leather, cardamom, coriander, green tea, rose otto, nutmeg, violet, vanilla, amber, leather
Take care, everyone!

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!
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
Good morning all! I'm wearing Le Baiser Du Dragon by Cartier today! Love this, must find a full bottle somewhere.
Annick Goutal Vétiver
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.

Today I'm visiting the Jungle--Kenzo's, that is. In L'Elephant.
Lovely island pics today! We all should be there - it would only be fair
Chanel Bois des Iles for me today - as close to the island as I can get right now.
Guerlain Rose Nacree du Desert. Very nice. Unfortunately that was definite end of my sample.
Yves Rocher Iris Noir for me today.
Morning all !
Hypnotic Poison today . Have a good one .
SotE - Lorenzo Villoresi Yerbamate.
OK, jumping on the "I'd like to be here right now" bandwagon.
Milford Sound, New Zealand please ....
Joining Lady L in Jicky extrait tonight.
Best to all.
SotA is L'Artisan Parfumeur Premier Figuier.
Here's a pic of where I would go to get away, Waikiki Beach.
Comme Des Garcons for H&M here...
Mercy, those are some beautiful images you folks are sharing today. Thank you.
I read yesterday that the IUNX line of fragrances is no longer considered discontinued, so I'm daring to spray a good portion from my small decant of acid-free, lemony goodness that is Eau Frappée.
Anomie et Ivoire, you’re a technical writer? Then you are well qualified to invent the word “upthread,” which is simply perfect.
Jujy54, I love how you smell. I think DK's Jasmine Essence is my fave jasmine.

SOTD: Castile by Penhaligon's.
Hello all. SL Daim Blond.
Good evening all. Welcome to AN as I have been remiss in doing so earlier.
Sampling this evening from a care package received from a very stylish young man. Musc Maori which Mr Ali described as very pleasant (high praise from him). The opening was pure "Cadbury World" and it's now developing an inedible quality, still milk chocolate but hiding something. Interesting first 30 minutes.
Good evening all...Needed a comforting scent today,so decided on Tam Dao.
Hello all. Needed some incense today - terre de l'encens.

Hey y'all -
"Pretty" ...hmph. I'm now feeling utterly resplendent in Cartier's So Pretty.
L'Heure Convoitee for me.
SotE is Gucci Rush. Have a great night everyone.
Ma Griffe edt modern...fresh, green chpyre that cools in this heat.
Evening, there, scented sweethearts!
Those travel destination images are so tempting. Too bad for us landlocked ones.
SOTE: vintage Houbigant Chantilly. I wouldn't figure this one to be my style: too ostensibly femme, but this powdery oriental has a classic, comforting drydown.
A long day at work, on call again. I'm wearing Bottega Veneta today.
Hugs to all ...
I've trademarked the color bleu
Permanent crown is now affixed - rather painfully I might add !
I punched my dentist in the arm ( playfully ) three times at the height of the pain . He deserves it and his assistant cheered .
Still in Hypnotic Poison .
My DH bought me 2 more bottles of Hypnotic Poison today .
This is one of his favorites though he says the older bottle I still have ( which I guess is now ' vintage ' ) smells different and smoother - therefore better. Still HP remains a great .
Timbuktu tonight, need the comfort of incense.
"Mom….now the kitten smells like Chamade!"
RainDropSparkle ! Lovely to see you and smelling exquisite too .
Anomie Et Ivoire - thanks Sweetie
