    Anyhoo, i got a decant of this fragrance the other day and this will be my first time wearing. So my SOTD will be: memoir.jpg

    Have a great day everyone!

    Bvlgari Black i find it as a perfect office scent for all temperatures, must say i dont enjoy it too much its like some skycraper building, very technical, cold (black as the name suggests , but serves the purpose well and is really a masterpiece!!

    Hi dollyrocket. I hope you will join us again today.

    Geza Schoen G, coooowull.

    Evangeline So the Ava Luxe Pivoine Rose is "Pink Peony" and not "Peony Rose"? OK! I have a little on again this morning. There is definately rose here though, and strangely, this morning, I find a little nutty note too!

    It's too early still for fragrance for me...I just wanted to be the first Yank this morning -- but Hednic beat me! I will probably wear Ava Luxe Pearl Musk, which is new to me, and a cozy thing. Someone sent me some to try and I am enjoying it. Love to everyone.

    Is your bathroom accessible now, or are you still a bit whiffy?

    I would love a big, deep roll top. The work done in ours was new vanity, sinks, faucets, mirror, lighting. The Mister asked whether I could please keep it tidy without all my clutter. I may move down the hall. We're a package deal, I and my clutter.

    Happy B-day Kiliwia! @tdem1961, thanks for reminding me about Oro, it's a goody. Today I'm wearing Houbigant Bain Nouveau Skin Perfume. So far, it's going better than the Germaine Monteil Nostalgia that I tried to wear to bed last night. Worst-turned vintage ever, had to bathe after applying, but of course there was the most beautiful trace of drydown this AM.

    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..."

    Yep, there's rose in there alright - the rose and peony scent profiles are closely related and rose is frequently used to replicate a peony scent, but they remain different. All the other "peony" perfumes that came before either smelled to me like just another rose, or managed just the faintest whisper of peony ...peony-esque was the best I could find. The beauty of Rose Pivoine is that it actually smells like a lush peony in full bloom while still having those rosy notes. I don't know where the nuttiness is coming from though ....maybe that's your own contribution?

    lilybelle - Lol! That new bathroom sounds super spiffy, but I'm like you with my clutter ...just gotta have my bathroom accessories!

    Happy Birthday Kiliwia - enjoy your day!

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Happy Birthday, Kiliwia! I just realized how eventful fall is for you- anniversary and both hubby's birthday and yours. What a wonderful time of year to celebrate! Hope all your b-day wishes come true!

    Glad to hear your mom's headaches are improving, albeit slowly, 30R. Hope they are gone soon. Rebound headaches are maddening; I've gotten myself into that mess before. Having to wait out a headache that came from treating the first headache-grrr! Very annoying! Distraction is a great idea; she really is so lucky to have you.

    Hmmm, nutty in Pivoine Rose- maybe a wood? Not sure, will need to wear it again with a nutty note in mind.

    No scent yet, about to play with samples. Will likely be in 4 or 5 SotDs shortly. I love having a day to myself so I can stink the place up!

    I have been thinking about wearing this for a couple days, it's weird how that happens with certain scents.

    Ha! Evangeline, I like that. The nuttiness may have been my own contribution. You are right there!! For me it was there though, a few minutes in.

    My SotD is- again- wonderful Heliotrope, delicious from the sharp tonka bean top to the heavenly vanillic base through the crunchy almondy heart!

    My for Kilwia will smell of it!
