    Default SOTD Wednesday 3rd October, 2012

    Wake up my dears!

    Having a day off because I have a
    virus-type illness.

    Felt so sick yesterday that perfume was the last
    thing on my mind! A bit better today so I will apply
    something with a bit of a citrus kick - Dior Escale
    a Portofino.
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    Morning All,

    Get well soon, kewart ! There seem to be so many bugs going around at the moment. Change in seasons, I guess.

    Ungaro II is my SotD.

    Best to all.

    Good ''morning'' :-)
    Norway is very wet and windy today, and daylight never seems to appear. Needed something warm and spicy, so I chose Lancôme's Magie noire.

    Have a beautiful day all, and get well soon, kewart!

    Kewart, you have my sympathy. I've also had a stubborn virus hanging over me for a while. Confirmed as nothing serious but it has laid me dreadfully low at times. Hope you continue to improve.


    SotD is Tom Ford Neroli Portofino.

    Morning ladies,

    I hope you feel better so Kewart.

    I'm not actually going to wear a SOTD today because, the wonderful Foustie has sent me loads of samples. So I will be testing them all day. I will be smelling VERY fragrant today though lol.

    I hope everyone has a good day today x

    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..."

    I'm hoping the forecast for Saturday will turn drier; hubby wants to go to a local agricultural fair and that is the afternoon they do the horse pull competition, which he loves watching.

    I'm wearing Yardley English Rose today.

    No scent yet, still very early here. Just got the girl off to school. Fingers crossed that things are improving.

    Last night I sprayed Jicky on the back of my hands at bedtime, while JM Dark Amber and Ginger Lily lingered on my wrists. In the early-morning hours I stirred and sensed their harmonious play. So delghtful. I'd never intentionally layered Jicky (except with English lavender dusting powder) because, well, why would you even think of such heresy? -- but having this week encountered how nicely Jicky interplays with 24 Faubourg and DA&GL, I'm curious where this might lead.

    Jicky solo ... for now.

    It was excruciatingly hot yesterday. This summer was rather foggy, and we get an 28º day in autumn. The forecast suggests today will be a bright day as well.

    Am in Diptyque Philosycos. Come to think of it, I need more 'summery' scents. Most of my scents are too rich/sweet/cloying for hot days.

    Iodine, you are not the only one longing for cooler weather. It is around 88 F here today and humid. Blegh.

    I had a shower and have switched to Chanel No. 22 edt as sotd. It is my favorite Chanel: all sweetness and cloudlike fluffiness. It makes me feel like this...
