    Default SOTD: Sunday 23rd September 2012

    Morning my lovelies,

    I'm in a quite strange mood today, feeling quite dark. I think it's because I'm on holiday as of Wednesday and the thought of working until then is making me depressed. Anyway, my scent matches my dark mood I think - Acqua di Parma Oud

    Good morning!

    SOTD is Bombay Bling from a sample vial, as I head to East London to see Wah! Wah" Girls! - a Bollywood style musical. A friend of mine's former student is performing this afternoon.

    Enjoy your Sunday, everyone.
    Do happy

    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 to you all!

    I am wearing an old favourite of mine - Bulgari Omnia.
    This is my "go to," easy, Sunday morning scent, when I have
    nothing more pressing to do than saunter down to buy a paper and
    pay the window cleaner later.

    May your day be carefree and enjoyable!

    Thanks Lucas! Cuir Ottoman needs a bit of patience I think. I can understand how the initial leather blast can put some people off. The leather has softened now, and the florals are coming through. It's so lovely and smooth. Definitely one of my favourites.

    Evening all. Been in Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme from a sample of the new purple top release. I like this better than the original scarlet top, quieter less screechy opening and a more refined dry down. I look forward to sampling this again

    Hi all,

    I tried posting and nothing happened. Here goes again!

    I'm wearing Côté Bastide Lilas, which is a lilac with a spicy carnaton note, and having a busy day in the kitchen.
    I'm baking a loaf of bread plus rolls, marinating portobello mudshrooms (to eat with the rolls), making stuffed peppers, preparing 3 bunches of basil for the freezer (I put the coarsely chopped leaves in freezer boxes and and cover them entirely with olive oil, then freeze, and use as needed throughout the year), and with a last gasp I'll be making a large container of bean salad, which my family loves.

    I do too, in Sous le Vent. Perfume perfection!

    I have happy news today gang- I've received a lovely postcard from our dear Warum, who is in Alaska for Mr. W's work. Alaska seems to suit her very well and the happy couple even renewed their wedding vows on Mt. Alyesha on their 10th anniversary! She is also now an official member of the "I heart Mitsouko" club, sounds like it wears beautifully in Alaska's fall weather. I miss you, O.- hurry home safely so I can send you a letter!

    Serge Lutens Une Voix Noire from the wax sample.

    I sort of like it, but I don't absolutely love it. Then again, many of my favourite Lutens scents are the ones which grew on me gradually, as against being love at first sniff types (with the exception of Sarrasins and Fleurs de Oranger).

    I get a strange mushroom-esque note, though, which is a tad odd, but I need to give it a couple of more wearings before I come to a decision.

    PerfumedLady, it's nice to hear that Warum is doing well!!

    Yes indeed - the fabulous babe Evangeline is smelling great.

    I have topped up this afternoon with vintage Chantilly. I have been wearing Chantilly for months now. Sometimes I think it must be horrible stuff, but I am addicted to it for some reason and I can't help having a spritz in the late afternoon, or later in the evening. Any formulation will do, even Dana, but a vintage formulation "made in France" is the best. It smells fantastic over Parisienne's remnant, resurrecting and exalting it, I kid you not.

    It's discontinued. I don't see any on the Web, but you could always do a saved search on eBay.

    The shop in Avon, CT where I bought mine only has the room sprays left, and can't get more Côté Bastide products in as her supplier stopped carrying it.

    You can tell the autumn approaches with all the yummy scents coming out...Evangeline, this image is wonderful for a Sunday evening.
    Did some sampling today at the Chanel Boutique of 28 La Pausa, No. 18 and Bois des Iles. 28 is a bit too green for me, Bois des Iles is beautiful, but it's no. 18 that I can't stop thinking about. Reminds me of herbs with a liqueur note ... really interesting.

    Also stopped at Sephora and compared Miss Dior Le Parfum side by side (on a card, not skin) with Coco edp. They are definitely related, imo, with Miss Dior Le Parfum something I could see my college aged daughter enjoying. Me too!

    Well, after the whole Miss Dior Cherie disaster I wasn't very excited to try this latest thing they're calling Miss Dior, but now you've got my attention! Always interested in anything related to Coco, I think I'll have to sniff this out.
