    Default SOTD: monday, 15 oct 2012

    Wow, I get to start! It's 4 am and I'm revisiting Mauboussin de Mauboussin. After a fairly neutral first impression, the woods are starting to grow on me. It occurred to me to try it again, when 2 months into owning Sarrasins I started smelling new wonderful things in that great scent. Thus I thought MdM deserved more than a two-day trial.

    Good morning/good day to all!

    Thank you sweetheart. I've got just a tiny sample of it but it smells so good I think I'll spring for a bottle sooner than expected.

    Roberto, joining the choir of best birthday wishes!

    Blows kisses to fragranceman88 for letting my thread prevail—my first ever start of an SOTD.

    It smells like fall here.

    kewart, I at first misread your post as having notes of heliotrope and iodine—that would be wicked!

    Auguri compleanno, Roberto!

    Happy Birthday, Roberto! I hope it's a simply fabulous day for you.

    A belated Happy Anniversary to Mrs. and Mr. Kiliwia -- what an inspiration!

    RHM, so sorry about the scare with your mom. Have they learned anything more?

    Ali, I hope you're on the mend soon. Maybe this early cold will be the only one of the season for you -- get it out of the way early, right?

    Like iodine yesterday, I am in Huitieme Art Myrrhiad. This one reminds me of Traversee du Bosphore, minus the fruit. The myrrh and licorice combination in Myrrhiad present as leather on me and then, of course, my skin brings out the vanilla. I am all about the sweet, apparently. Not sure yet if this one is FBW for me.

    Anomie, sorry about your computer charger, but you couldn't have picked a more evocative description for how Nahema is smelling for you! I love starting a Monday with a good laugh! Thanks for that.

    Happy Birthday to our always gentlemanly Roberto! Hope you have a fantastic day!

    Belated congrats and Happy Anniversary to the Kiliwias! Now that's a marriage for us all to aspire to!

    Foustie, so happy you like Pivoine Rose! You are going for my favorites! I have been especially impressed by the AL complex florals, though she does some lovely soliflores, too.

    No scent yet, waiting on my new bottle of 28 La Pausa to arrive. You know what this means-I will be last on the UPS route today!
