    Default SOTD Thursday 25th October 2012

    hello all,

    today i am wearing SHALIMAR

    but from 1980s EDT 15 ml bottle so cute

    it has real not synthetic bergamot like the new one, it has more vanila-lemon feel, and not so dry, its also woody, but creamy in the mid notes!....just as Luca Turin described it, its best in the middle!

    Good morning peeps!

    I am surrounded by a wonderful cloud of ROMA
    by Laura Biagiotti.

    My dear friend Carol is off to Rome in
    a few weeks time so i gave her a decant to wear whilst she
    explores the city. She "gets" my perfume obsession and was
    thrilled.

    Roma is big, unashamed and gloriously defiant (nothing like my friend
    by the way.)
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    Good morning!

    I'm testing Gardenia Exerberante on my left wrist and Flor Azteca on my right. They are both distinct and wonderful, but I like GE more. Once the initial blast of the almost bitter green note fades, it becomes smoother and a very realistic gardenia. It's a shame Exotic Island Aromatics don't ship full bottles internationally.

    Enjoy your Thursday, everyone.

    Youth Dew. It was a mistake - thought I was spraying something else, as I've never worn YD by day, but it's really lovely!

    Divine Divine. Another one I wish I had more of to spray lavishly. Woke up at 1 am as disturbed by lightning, a series of them like on the glamour shot site. Expecting snow.

    Have a nice day, especially 30R and mom.

    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..."

    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

    24 Faubourg this am. Think I needed something a little less spicy/more muted after smelling Arabie all day yesterday.

    Roberto, you smell woooonderful!!

    I'm giving another full wearing to PdH Ambre 114. I found it far too powdery the first time I wore it, but today it's a bit more herbal, and the patchouli is more pronounced. I may need a decant to fully understand how this one works on my skin. I'm intrigued.

    Bonjour, Monsieur easyfish! I'm loving your morning greetings lately! You can't see it, but I'm curtseying in return to your hat tip.

    No.5 EDT today. Sunny and warm today but I know you folks in the middle of the country are sending your cold weather toward my direction soon. Please hold it back as long as you can!

    Good morning, everyone!

    I'm rearranging my fragrances today as my mini fridge is overcrowded. It's time to take some off-season and less-used ones to the downstairs fridge.

    Meanwhile, I've applied Diabolo Rose as my SotD.

    Good morning!

    Test driving a few samples today: Un Jour D'Ete by Keiko Mecheri (something mysterious and ambery here - delish!), Entre Naranjos by Ramon Monegal (killer drydown), and Limon de Cordoza by the Different Company (pretty good lemon).

    My wrists are musical events!

    It's still very warm here, though it has been cool enough at night to make the leaves start turning colors. I'm wearing Shalimar edc this morning. I haven't worn this in a long time. "Oooo hello there! I remember you." It has the brightness of eau de cologne, the smoky/dustiness of something old in the attic, and an intimation of the Shalimar sultriness, but not the full tilt bombshell (NOT that there is anything wrong with that, I love that, it's just sometimes an edc is more conducive to activity, and I am behind schedule here as usual). This Shalimar edc is a veil, but a multi faceted one, not like the new versions of Shalimar, which are nice but very shiny and modern and smooth, even a little flat - interesting as some of them are (imho). This edc is my favorite.

    adding...thinking of Jon Rodgers. ♥

    Lol, grabbed one out of my samples and dabbed a little bit on. Plum by Mary Greenwell. I thought..plum sounds good..dabbed on..it's a big wallop of tuberose. Ugh. Lol and I thought I smelled my other love, gardenia. Haha. ugh. The plum? Well it was in and out like a bad style then it was all about tuberose, lol. There is a rose in here that gives it a Drole De Rose note. That vintage/makeup note. A bit waxy. But something acidic and tart on top. The rose makes a decent appearance in it, best part of the scent. As I like that the rose almost takes over the tuberose for a bit. But ya, obvious pass for me.
