    Default SOTD Thursday 11th October 2012

    Good morning. Where are our early birds these days?

    Well, I am in a very fragrant mood this morning. One of the gels, my scent sister, put together the most beautiful parcel for me, and it came yesterday. It is full of Roses and Iris and many other wonderful things. Today I am really enjoying Ava Luxe Bohemian Rose Extrait. A vintage rose actually in my view.

    I used to go to a magical shop that had the most wonderful vintage clothes, from tail coats to flapper dresses, cuffs, headresses, jewellery, gloves, bags, all very silent movies and Cabaret. The shop smelled of a melange of Rose, Violet, Iris, powder, dust, musk, sweat, and glamour. This reminds me of that shop.

    Good morning!

    Foustie
    ; I can just smell the shop the way you've described it. It is a smell I'm certainly familiar with in my line of work. Every time I walk into an antique shop, the smell takes me back to the time I used to play in the attic with boxes of my grandmother's old gowns from the 20s and 30s and dusty old books.

    Testing Boxeuses again - I love this one. It's a winner for me.

    Have fun, no matter what you do!

    JR, you smell yummy! Which reminds me -- as much as I am keen on several Frapins, I have never had a single full bottle from them for no particular reason. High time I thought of at least one.

    KarmaLee, very nice to see you again. Rest, indulgences, and good company are your best remedies.

    A random skunk walked in our garage earlier today. I got scared about me and junk getting spritzed and ran out right away. When DH came back later, an unexpected guest had already left, luckily. Some excitement for a day.

    Great photo, ladymurasaki!

    SotD is Avignon.

    Mom has to go back for the 2nd half of her root canal work (permanent filling) this morning. Her new glasses should also arrive before the weekend. I sure hope her headaches subside after all this.

    I also enjoy the photo, ladymurasaki.

    I'm wearing Eau des Iles by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier on this chilly morning. Have a good one, everybody!

    Good Afternoon,

    Luckily, no skunks around these here parts. Running over the heath yesterday evening though, I did cause a green woodpecker to shoot out from the long grass. Thought of Jon too, who I know shares my ornithological obsession.

    Best to all.

    Reading this thread starts the day off right.
    First full wearing of Chanel Bois Des Iles - smooth warm and beautiful.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    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..."

    (((Foustie))), you have started with one of my favorites, dear sister! Bohemian Rose is quite vintage in feel and happens to be the first AL of which I drained my bottle-just last week, in fact! Think it deserves to be replaced and I'm so happy to hear you like it, too! I love your description of that wonderful shop; would have loved to lose myself in all those vintage goodies right alongside you!

    KarmaLee, was so nice to hear from you again, best wishes for a speedy recovery!

    Very happy to see my dear friend Warum here, too! I must get over to that Vegas thread soon and tell you how beautiful you all look!

    Taking a break from the samples today in my own Cuir de Lancome. Have a great day, gang! Weekend's almost here!

    Hello everyone -

    Pleased to be joining Foustie in lush rosiness this morning - that Ava Luxe rose is a beauty! I'm in Creed's glorious Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare ...the 30 Roses Rose.

    Y'all have a great day!





    Quarry, lilybelle, Wolfie - I'm so glad y'all appreciated the Alma-Tadema pic ...and without even getting a whiff of me! Indeed, it was very appropriate.

    Hi Evangeline! I do smell pretty great! I am really enjoying Citizen Queen as a fall scent; it has that kind of wistful feel about it that I love for this time of year.

    Good morning!

    Getting a late start today, slept in til 8. I'd forgotten how good a couple of
    extra hours of sleep can feel.

    30Roses, wishing your mom the best today and hope she starts feeling better.

    SotD is Yves Saint Laurent Cinema.

    Have a great day!

    Twolf, how do you like TF Jonquil de Nuit? I'm very curious about that one. Is it very jonquil-y? I love that scent, I just find TF's so hard to wear, most of them.

    Easyfish, I love that purple Montale bottle. I love the color and the photo.

    It really does! And it's always good to see your sweet smiling face, too! xo

    Roberto...Bogie & Bacall (sigh!).

    Evangeline, I love your pic today too...so beautiful!

    Well, I'm in a rosey scent today, too, at least I think I am. I'm wearing Hové's Vous Souvenez-Vous, and they don't list the ingredients, but it smells very rosey to me. I brought back all kinds of soaps and scents from Hové and Bourbon French when we were in NOLA, almost a year ago, and now I'm very excited (to put it mildly) because B-belle and I are returning for Christmas this year. I still have so many of these things, and I need to use them up so I can re-stock.

    Love to all you sweethearts. I love seeing you in SotD thread each day.

    (I'm a mush ball today!!)

    I HEREBY RESOLVE ...

    Today I am NOT going to ... clean this hairy house or work to please a client or deal with vehicular crash issues or entertain visitors or keep appointments or stray from this couch and this Kindle.

    I AM going to ... watch frivolous TV shows and movies with dear husband and poke around the web, contemplating perfume and handbags and tonneau covers and taking the time to really appreciate what you folks bring to Basenotes with your perceptions, creativity and many kindnesses.

    I WILL NOT feel guilty for taking a day off, despite deeply rooted compulsions to clean, organize and be purposeful.

    And I will do all this in Sabi, which, now that it has been discontinued, is one of the most expensive fragrances you'll see on ebay.
