    Default SOTD Tuesday 30th October 2012

    Firstly, a huge hug and "stay safe" wishes to all of you in
    the east of America. Sincerely hope Hurricane Sandy disappears
    soon, leaving you all in good health with not too many problems in it's wake.
    May the lights go on for you as soon as possible.

    It seems frivolous to be thinking about scent this morning but I have just applied
    some Ferre de Ferre and am enjoying the iris note in this one.
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    Whoa, easyfish, that is some photo! I was curious about it and learned that it is Victoire or Spirit of the Wind a glass hood ornament by Lalique. Article for others who are curious:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/04/au...radiators.html

    Well the "spirit of the wind" that was Hurricane Sandy is dying down slowly, but we still have gusts up to 40 mph so I can't let the cat out yet. He is bored but resigned.

    So far we have dodged a power outage but 630,000 in CT are without power, and CT highways are still closed. My husband will have to commute today by secondary roads-- hopefully none of them are blocked by fallen trees.

    SotD not chosen yet. I'm heading back to bed for a few more ZZZs.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm playing piano for the tiny dancers this morning and, as I've mentioned before, they tend to notice my perfume so I like to choose something with them in mind. I think they'll like Miss Dior Chrie ...I do!





    Pomander, I've also been smitten with Miss Dior Le Parfum ...I think a purchase is inevitable!

    Still thinking of everybody on the East Coast - y'all hang in there!

    Easyfish, that really is some image!

    30 Roses, Im so glad you have electricity. My inlaws on Long Island are without power. Were ok here, being far enough south and inland. I didnt get much sleep either with the house rattling in the wind, however. Today is just a rainy day with a little wind. Youd never know what passed by in the middle of night. Im watching TV. OMG, NYC!

    No fragrance yet for me. Im in a bit of a *thing* lately: many fragrances I used to love are obnoxious to me now. It is my hormones. I love my old Chantilly and live in that. But I will have to hunt out some new fragrances to love gentle, subtle, OLD ones. I like Calche very much lately. I wore that when I was much younger, and Im liking that one. I have a mini of a vintage one, and I may start looking for more.

    Happy Birthday to Ubu! Stop by when you can. We miss seeing you here.

    Love to you all.

    Happy Birthday to my fellow Hoosier, Ubu! Hope you enjoy your day!

    What a mess, lower NYC, Atlantic City, the islands all flooded and power outages everywhere. But Americans are resilient, saw it here with our nasty summer storms. Clean-up is a long process (still working on it here from the last tornado) but we can do it. I'm very grateful to see some of our east coast friends checking in here, safe and sound. This has been a scary one.

    The outer edge of the storm is here today- nothing big, just grey skies and sleet. 31 Rue Cambon fits the day perfectly. Hugs to everyone!

    ((((East Coast BNers)))) -- I hope all of you came through the storm unscathed. 30R, thanks for the update! I hope experiencing the storm wasn't hard on your mom. I have friends in the Storrs area of CT and in Wilmington, DE and haven't heard anything from them yet. I'm crossing my fingers.

    Twolf, congratulations! Good for you for sticking with it and seeing it through. I know how hard it is to re-immerse yourself in that experience after you believed you were done with it for good. Cheers!

    I did some sampling yesterday -- a second test drive of Kilian Back to Back (similar enough to 1270 that I'll spare myself the expense) and a first drive of Frapin 1270 (WOW!!! And it's still in the final stages of drydown on the back of my hand!) and SL Fourreau Noir (I really like the top and heart of this one! Not so wild about the end of it, though. Too much immortelle.)

    I'm doing more sampling today and will post later with whatever, what was the word?, skooshes? I decide to try.

    I hope everyone can stay safe, warm, and dry and has a good day.

    The outage map (http://outage.cl-p.com/outage/outagemap.aspx) shows 76% of people in the Mansfield area, which includes Storrs, are without power. However, wind speeds are generally below 40 mph now, which will allow repair crews to safely use the buckets to fix lines. Mom wasn't fazed-- I rather think she enjoyed the excitement. The cat went out finally but seems to prefer to be indoors with us.

    ((Lilybelle)) I slept like a log the last 2 nights! I think I've finally caught up on lost sleep.

    I am wearing 2 Demeter scents layered: Pineapple and Gingerale-- but Gingerale is longer lasting, so that is mostly what's left now.

    And just now we got an automated message that school will be closed 2 more days-- water got into the high school through roof damage and more time is needed for clean up! My daughter is ecstatic.

    Thinking about all those affected by hurricane Sandy. Hope we, as a society, can at least learn more about preparedness and recovery strategies from this brutal lesson.

    Haven't craved wearing a scent for a few days. Just showered, so I should apply sumthin'. Hmmmm. Touch of Boucheron perhaps.

    That's great, 30 Roses. I'm still waiting to get news of a few people, but I'm pretty sure they are without power but otherwise ok.

    I'm wearing some vintage l'Air du Temps parfum this evening, inspired by LiliB's thread. It is missing something in the top notes, but still smells great. In my experience the edt doesn't age, but Mike said his is good, so maybe I just haven't had much luck finding intact vintage edt.

    Thanks for that link, 30R! I'm glad your power came back on so quickly. I'm more glad you're sleeping well.

    Work was absolutely bonkers today. My goodness. I'm wiped out -- but not done yet. I'm taking a quick break for a walk outside to clear my head and so decided to finally sample something today. I have skoosh of Ava Luxe Madeline on the left wrist and AL No. 23 on the right hand. (Lol, Twolf! )

    This is my first experience with Ava Luxe ... and my goodness! I really, really like both of these. Especially No. 23. It has the beautiful sandalwood and incense of my beloved Tam Dao with some lovely florals. But No. 23 seems cooler than Tam Dao ... the geranium, maybe? Regardless, I *really* like it. I need to do some more sniffing on Madeline, though, to figure out that one.

We had awful wids and rain last night, and some brief thunder and lightening tonight... but no real damage or inconvenience in my neck of the woods, but many elsewhere in MA are without roofs and power.
