    Default SOTD Wednesday 24th October

    Hello all. Hey where are you all??????


    Anyway, I am wearing a sample of Montale Black Aoud. I admit I have had it for quite a while and sniff the little spray but never actually worn, until today of course.

    Hope you all have a fabulous fragrant day.

    I'm wearing a sample of Brin de Réglisse. Thsis not a long-lasting fragrance but I like the juxtaposition of licorice and lavender.

    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.

    Easyfish, I understand you were able to take several pictures of Dr.G., but how did you transport him back "in the era"?

    Larimar, this wolf hears hears all the whistles -- though aimed at Dr.G. -- and wears Caron Or et Noir.

    Evangeline, well, let the disappointment begin (as if you could not tell it already!). Same as with the new(ish) Coco Noir, La (Nueva) Perla is an amplified and refurbished version of La Perla In Rosa having very little to do with the original rounded and supple cabochon of a chypre: fewer tart berries and real butch (and very synthetic at that) patchouli, ylang is angular and roses are non-existent. Boohoohoo. A no go from me.

    Good afternoon! Are you all OK? We have been over at Edinburgh for a short break and we thoroughly enjoyed it too!

    Back to Black today. Bought the refill which was a fraction of the price, and a good job too because I am draining it at an awful rate. It needs a heavy application. Lovely though.

    Good morning everyone!

    I'm in Van Cleef & Arpels First, 70s edt ...dabbed this time, rather than sprayed. I have one of those big ol' splash bottles, and I decided to do it the way I used to do it, before I had an atomizer for it, and it really is different ...richer, somehow, but maybe just less diffuse ...such a gorgeous fragrance.

    Y'all have a great day!




    heavenscent - and what a fantastic new acquisition it is!! You smell amazing - enjoy it!

    Wolfie - thank you ...sigh. But I suspected as much, and I suppose I knew how you felt about it, but call it wishful thinking. Oh well, the gorgeous older stuff is still plentiful and affordable, so there's no need to ever be without.

    Wonderful pic, ladym ...swoon.

    Just a quick post this morning as I'm on my way to a seminar. It's a gray, foggy, contemplative kind of day, which always puts me in the mood for SL Bois de Violette. I love it.

    I hope all of you have a wonderful day.

    Hi, iivanita ~ Above are links to information about posting photos. Basically, the photo files (JPEG, GIF, TIFF) need to be uploaded to a site like Photobucket.com or tinypic.com or your album here are Basenotes. (Lately, uploading to a Basenotes album has been trickier than it used to be. I don't know why. Maybe it's just me.) Once the photo you want to use is uploaded, copy its code into your post. For example:

    (IMG)http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s98/Saxtonhill/PiperRoseandautumnpond10-20-2012.jpg(/IMG)

    Note: For this example, I replaced the brackets [ ] with parenthesis ( ) so the code would show up as text for you to see and not insert the photo.



    (This isn't my photo. It's just one I found at Photobucket.)

    Play around with it. We all had to learn by trial and error.

    That dog is saying, "Throw the stick, throw the stick...why don't you just throw the stick? What's the matter with you?" Labs are so funny. I once worked in this place that had a chocolate lab (owner's dog), and every day I'd take him out for a romp in this field with a tennis ball. He'd always get sidetracked and lose the ball. There was a turkey farm down the road and he would leave turkey feet on the door mat outside the office as an offering. He would sit and stare and drool at me when I had my lunch. I loved him. That pic reminds me of that *look*.

    Welcome, bamboogrrrl! Hope you're enjoying BN!

    Lilybelle, you're so right and I will be wearing BaV somewhere. I can take it, I once got a furiously nasty look from a woman at Walgreen's when she got a whiff of my No.19 trail. Didn't bother me because 1. I've been told since I was a Shalimar wearing kid that my tastes are unusual for my age and 2. this woman was out in public in her pajamas. Not exactly in a position to judge!

    Just to really stink up the place, decided to sample Le Baiser du Dragon on the other arm. Also has personality to spare but it's the BaV that feels like one of "my" scents. Will gladly represent the old school in this Desprez beauty.

    Well, it turns out Mom has arthritis in her left AC (acromioclavicular) joint-- where the shoulder blade meets the collarbone, on the top of the shoulder. And bursitis.

    She got a cortisone shot and has to have PT 3x/week for the next month at least. I will need to accompany her. It's in her building, but she will not be able to remember how to get there-- never mind remembering to go at all. I hope this does the trick for her.

    Oh kalli - you obviously really liked it at one point in order to buy it, hope that love comes back! Do not feel guilty or bad about it though or regret not choosing another - either sell it and move on, or embrace it for what it is

    My scent of the evening was Rubj Parfum by Vero Profumo, whilst I prefer the EDP, this is undoubtably one hell of an amazing fragrance, and my favourite orange blossom of all time

    Thanks Forfreddie, lol. Too funny. My sample of it was so small that I really may have not gotten the full wearing effect as I do now. There's something that's a bit much to me about this...where it actually decides to stay on the skin. Just wears differently..but ya, I may sell..may give it a little time. lol. Maybe it's colder outside and am craving something more gourmand..haha, like I said, women, haha. I can only get one perfume as am on a real budget right now..so if it's one..it's gotta be one I really, really like. lol.

    @kalli, if you try it again when the weather is a tiny bit cooler, it may sit better with you.
    But sometimes you really do have to sample more first. I made a mistake when I bought Mimosa Pour Moi based on a sample. And it was 100 ml, too. Ended up reselling it.

    Lol..it can't get much colder..lol..snow..it's winter officially! I did like it a bit when I was outside in that super cold weather for a bit. But meh..lol..one of those days where I am not impressed with anything really. I like Drole, it's just I think if I can only have one bottle for quite a while..I am going to be pretty picky I suppose. And it wears different..just cause instead of a little dab..it's several sprays. Next time..I will wear more samples and douse myself in it to make sure I totally dig it. I much prefer spray samples as opposed to little dab ons. And now I am wondering..and so is my husband why I didn't get Ineke. lol. Oh well! Big hugs to you 30R..and everyone!
