    Morning All,

    Thanks for the lovely comments yesterday - had a fab time (as always) at the Perfume Lovers meetup. Grant and Lila did a sterling job in presenting a condensed history of men's perfumes. The undoubted highlight for me was getting to sniff Hai Karate and Mandom (of Charles Bronson ad fame). Sad, I know.

    Will certainly be joining Larimar, Jon et al tonight in a glass of vino. I'll be taking it however, at a bar in Waterloo. Roll on 6.00pm

    SotD and -E is Tabac Blond.

    Best to all.

    Good morning !. Hai Karate . G, I had a relative who used it years ago - some seriously foul stuff as I remember. I'd love to sniff it again just to see if it was as bad as I recall.

    SotD is Versace Black Jeans.

    I'm synching. I like fragrances that have their own air. Contemporary, uncluttered, sheer and airy. Lovely. Sel Marin really is like sea air, or sea spray, but unfortunately I am out of that. Actually I am going to go with Ramon Monegal L'Eau de Rose.

    "Radiant caress. Idyll between drops of morning dew and velvet textures of petals of aromatic Roses. Captivating elixir with epilogue in the shape of adage of Musks between leaves of Patchouly."

    Hmmmm.

    Actually I find this more of a study in perfection than a satisfying fragrance, but Air it certainly has, and you have put me in the mood. See, the Friday synch makes you think!

    Have a lovely weekend everyone.

    Good morning everyone I've been extremely busy with 3 part-time jobs lately. Today is off,though.Later I have a date! ( but we never called it that ) Not sure how I feel about moving forward,but thought that I probably need a date,so why not we're gonna meet at one of my favourite places in Troms°, Sivertsens kafe. It's a small,intimate vegetarian cafe. It used to be the old prison (!), so the whole place has a rather rustic feel to it with rough ,painted stone walls. Not sure about sotd yet ( don't think I have anything that would qualify as airy...),but I'm concidering Cuir de russie or Chergui...or Nahema or even Razala.Will get back to that after my shower. Have a great day all

    Good morning everyone!

    I'm in sync, although it's not exactly an airy fragrance, this just seemed like the definitive choice. I'm going with the wind angle in Vent Vert, 60s parfum ...plus the ever-irresistible flourish of edt.

    I've got Part II of my Thai cooking class today, so I should be coming home later with delicious curries and "festive main-dish noodles," as it was described to us last time. Yummy!

    Y'all have a great day!




    Oh, a date! Have fun tonight ineespenes!

    Airy it is. The one that immediately came to mind was a sample I tried last spring - Different Company De Bachmakov. So I went digging through the sample box and actually found it on the third try

    It is airy and light, reminding me of the crisp feel in the air at change of seasons, summer to fall as it is now, or winter to spring. Lovely stuff. It also vaguely reminds me of Eau de Lalique, a favorite of mine.

    Vetyverio by Diptyque



    I couldn't sleep soundly last night, I have 2 things that are keeping me up (tooth pain and a neuroloigcal eye twitch)...and last night it was both of them. So I woke up in a real crabby mood and proceeded to have a big argument with my husband (why can't I learn to keep my mouth shut when I'm in a bad mood?).

    I just read rtamara41's post from yesterday and giggled at her 'comforting man cake' from my SOTD yesterday. ((bear hugs to rtamara41)) - I needed a laugh this morning.

    Nothing is more spot on for airy than Chanel Bel Respiro. I have only a drop or two left, so I'm snorting that off my knuckle for now.

    (((ExtremeK))), I'm so sorry about Dugan. You came to the right place to tell your story. I went through the same a year ago with one of my pets and can tell you these fine folks will support you through the pain. You are in my thoughts and will continue to be.

    (((Alityke))), better days must be coming soon for you, too. Lots of love to you.

    Ine, good to see you and great to see you doing so well! Enjoy your "not a date"! Good luck!

    Good luck to you as well on your presentation, dear Larimar!

    G., glad last night was so much fun! Sounds like a very interesting evening; I'm always so envious of those of you who are able to attend these get-togethers. Sometimes, I secretly wish the Mr.’s job would transfer us overseas!

    (((Mike))), sorry to hear you're in pain. It's hard to be nice when we don't feel well; I'm sure Ray understands. Hope you feel better very soon.

    I'm synced in Sous le Vent. Slept in today because wine o'clock was last night here, been a long week. Feel fantastic after all that rest, though! Happy Friday, gang!

    SotD - Miss Dior Le Parfum

    I bought a bottle of this glorious juice today. A very sweet and dense perfume, not unlike the missed original ChÚrie, EdP.
    Now, there is no concentration written on the bottle. I asked the SA if it really was pure perfume, she insisted that it was. I said, that it was a very huge bottle (40ml) if that's true. She agreed. She also told me, that she was a certified Dior salesassistant, so, I guess I'll have to give her some credit. Still, I believe it's more like an Eau de Parfum Intense. This 40ml bottle is way cheaper than 7.5ml parfum. I don't know?
    Still, it's indeed some good stuff. Finally a decent new release from this notorious house, which, let's be honest, have fallen from a lot of people's grace resently.
    All hail Christian Dior.

    (((inees))) -- I'm so very happy for you. Moving forward can be difficult, and you can only do so when *you're* ready, but the rewards are wonderful, particularly once you get to the point where you can *embrace* forward. I'm cheering for you.

    I'm no longer surprised by the kindness of this community, but I will always be touched and humbled by it. Thank you all for the condolences and support -- you're really amazing.

    Also, my own board etiquette apologies for throwing a huge wet blanket over yesterday's SOTD thread. I was just going to post about Tam Dao, and the next thing I knew, there was my sad novella. You make it so easy to share life's triumphs and heartbreaks.

    And, Twolf, you're right about the hat full of black and white balls. The last 8 weeks were very nearly equal parts wonderful events and trying/heartbreaking ones. I think the fact they were all squeezed into such a short span of time has done me in a bit, but I know I'm going to be just fine. Autumn has a way of revealing something beautiful or magical nearly every time I turn a corner. The sky and sunlight seem so bright and pure, and I love the transition to my autumn fragrances. I even engaged in some retail therapy last night and bought some decants and a few samples -- all spices, woods, and ambers. I'm already smiling.

    So, today, I'm still in a scent that I find comforting, but it also smells like autumn to me -- like the sweet and toasty smell of kettle-corn at a Saturday afternoon football game (not that it smells *like* kettle-corn, it's just got that same sweet/toasty vibe) -- Parfumerie Generale's Aomassai.

    Here is a photo of Dugan, taken about 10 days ago. Dugan 2.jpg

    Mike, I do hope you feel better. Thinking up something fun and unexpected for you and your hubby tonight might at least help distract you from the pain and bother.

    Droppin in after a long break! Miss y'all!

    After finally ordering myself some samples (I've been neglecting my nose, sadly) I'm wearing Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel- lots of it. The vial broke during shipping. I salvaged it by applying all I could. Like it! Something about it reminds me of Aqua Allegoria Mentafolia by Guerlain, something about the powdery/sweet/mintiness which in my mind reminds me of an Easter Basket of candy, not in your face, but subtle, refined, and somehow nostalgic.

    Have a great weekend everyone! Hope to see you soon.

    Jinete, thank you. I am feeling a bit better, but I know these things take time, and I may always miss him. I suppose that's what pet owners sign up for, right? We know the score going in, but that doesn't make it any easier. What does help is thinking about the good stuff -- which was nearly all of his 11.5 years. That's a good thing.

    I hope you're enjoying the Tam Dao. I find it so quiet and soothing.

    I was really busy yesterday an missed reading most of the SotD thread. Having gone back to read it now, I am very saddened by your loss, ExtremeK. Dugan was blessed to have you.

    I'm glad you sold the house, even if the price was not as high as you wished. That was a very long time for it to be on the market and for you to be burdened with its maintenance, taxes etc.

    I don't really follow astrology, so maybe you guys can help me out? Isn't there something called retrograde or something like that where it causes chaos and strife? Well, my week has been like that with co-workers and family. I can relate to Mike about keeping my mouth shut ... didn't happen today at work.

    Shades, it is called Mercury retrograde. Thankfully, does not happen very often. When it does, however, it is all valuable life lessons to us -- slow down, ponder over, look at your past accomplishments, make conclusions. Mercury is generally responsible for good communication and everything connected with electricity, also for teaching, public speaking, dealing with kids. I am not sure if it is retrograde this very moment. but wish you all the best anyway.
