    Default SOTD: Tuesday 23rd October 2012

    Good morning my lovelies

    Very tired today even although I got a good long, uninterrupted, free of alcohol sleep. Hate it when that happens.

    Anyhow, my SOTD is MDCI - Ambre Topkapi

    Hope you all have a great Tuesday x

    Morning All,

    Another misty, grey day here in London. At least the temps are mild (for now, word is arctic winds are arriving by the week's end).

    Take care, folks.

    Good morning!

    I'm scent free at the moment, but will be wearing Tabac Blond vintage later for drinks with an old friend.

    Good morning folks!

    SotD not chosen yet as I'm headed back for some more ZZZs, having seen my daughter off to school.

    Mom seems to have bursitis in her shoulder, so I'll be trying to get her in to see her Orthopedic Dr. whenever they have an opening.

    OOOOOh, nice pictures, hedonist! Glad to hear you got to meet with the most handsome guy on BN (and the most reasonable too!). Are you with the twins? How are they coping up with the new for them country?

    Mr.reasonable and I met several times. Such a great guy. Passionate, interesting and laid back. We had a great chats.

    And yes , it was wifey, twins and myself. And a little one just past his or her 1st trimester.

    The twins loved Hong Kong. A buffet for the senses. Constant lights, sounds, smells, people and general commotion.

    Thanks alfarom!

    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..."

    Good morning everyone!

    Congratulations regarding your happy news hedonist, and thanks for posting the great pics! I was in Hong Kong just a few months ago, and you've taken me right back ...along with my beautiful sotd, Shalimar Parfum Initial, which was one of the fist things I purchased upon arrival, so this is a real stroll down memory lane!




    ((ExtremeK)) - I posted and dashed so quickly yesterday that I missed that you broke your toe - oh no!! I've been there too, so I really feel for you. You take it easy - I hope you're on the mend soon!

    Wolfie - yay, you have it! I'm really looking forward to your thoughts on the new La Perla.
    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

    I'm not wearing perfume yet, but I'm craving animalic. I'll have to see what I've got.

    Love to everyone. <3

    Wow, the pictures from Hong Kong are beautiful hedonist - enjoy!

    Today it's:

    Lagerfeld Classic by Lagerfeld



    My older brother wore this the entire time he was a teen, so I always felt a little weird wearing it (like I was wearing his clothes or something) but I've gotten over the associations and now enjoy it as my own scent. A couple months ago I came upon a guy wearing this and it smelled SO GOOD on him I had to ask him what fragrance he was wearing and he told me it was Lagerfeld which really surprised me, I thought I knew what it smelled like, but it seems as if my nose has evolved and I'd forgotten how wonderful it is. I snagged a cheap vintage bottle here on the sales boards, that was a splash and I decanted it into one of my travel atomizers. I would imagine this stuff will last me all of my life, it is so strong! Only 3 sprays from my tiny atomizer and I am probably going to be smelling this all day. Gotta love the eighties.

    Oh, Hedonist, congratulations to you and Mrs. H! How wonderful! And thank you for posting those pictures -- they're amazing.

    LadyM, I love your photo -- so evocative for Tabac Blond.

    ((((30R and Mom)))) I hope for some uneventful, pain-free days for you both.

    Thanks, Evangeline! I'm doing really well. I actually went to yoga last night, and my instructor modified some of the poses for me so I could do them. In fact, last night was the first time I was able to do half-moon pose on both legs -- I guess focusing on balancing without hurting my toe helped me NOT focus on how much I hate half-moon pose. HA!

    I'm working from home today and haven't selected a fragrance yet but will post once I do.

    I'm finally in Provence Santé Linden/Tilleul, which I find soothing and centering.

    It's a true bargain ($30 for 100mls, now that is hard to beat!) And it lasts and lasts. The body lotion is great, too, and their soaps.

    I am enjoying Chanel Bois des Iles EDT today. It is so cozy, with an abstract gourmand quality, which is exactly what I needed on a Tuesday.

    I finally settled on some ancient My Sin extrait. I'm not sure it's really for me. I think I smell narcissus in it, which I love, but there is something floral &high pitched that grates. I'm very hard to satisfy lately. The fragrances that usually please me are beginning to feel like aliens. The wheel turns again...click. But it will be back around again, I'm sure...click, click.
