    Default SOTD: Wednesday 31st October 2012 (Happy Halloween)

    Happy Halloween everyone,

    Its my favorite holiday but this year i dont get to dress up or go to a party as i am working :-(

    Anyhoo, It is absolutely baltic up here this morning. I am finding it a little challenging to type as i would normally because my fingers are quite tight.

    My SOTD to lift my spirits is: Creed - Aventus

    I hope everyone has a good Halloween and my thoughts are still with my fragrant friends and their families over in the US - stay safe!

    I have a day off from university (in Poland we celebrate All Saints Day tomorrow, so they gave us time to return home) so decided to show up and say hi!

    Sampling M.Micallef STYLE today!

    Happy Halloween! I have the orange BN skin on all the time...finally that jack'o lantern in the upper left is right. I have loads of candy to give out to the neighborhood kids. Mr. Belle is a pirate and I'm a witch. I think I'll wear something candy smelling, but I haven't decided what yet. I may change my mind at the last minute. Hello, Lucasai! Love to everybody.

    Etro Patchouli. I love this, and it seems quite apt for Halloween. I might join our Ladymurasaki in Voleur de Roses later, a romantic gothic vampires and Wuthering Heights fragrance. Good choice L, and what a wonderful picture of the kitty in the top hat!

    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..."

    I seem to have a pattern of choosing one fragrance over all others for three month intervals. Past heavy rotation 'fumes have included vintage Weil Antilope, Oscar de la Renta Volupté, and Myrurgia Maderas de Oriente (truth be told, if money were no object, I'd go for three months for daily Sarrasins). So, Mauboussin has emerged as this autumn's go-to fragrance. It took me a while to tune into all its notes, and now I'm liking how the spice and woods are cooled by an anise note.

    Hello all,
    Spent the day in Jicky Extrait and I think I may just refresh it. Honestly, a rotation of 3-5 fragrances would do me at the moment! It's a somewhat satisfying state, too.
    Best wishes, in particular to the East Coasters!

    Think it's gotta be Chocolovers. It's candy day. Haha and on candy day, of all things, I've got to go to the dentist. I may have to make a joke. I wonder if they actually give out candy at the dentist's office today. Probably, they want to make more money! It very well make me deter from candy, at least for today! lol. Ugh. Good to see ya jujy!

    I actually don't care for Halloween much(except for the candy but again the dentist probably will deter me from it, lol). I much prefer Christmas(except the lame commercialism and crazy shoppers). And I like the 4th of July, lots of bbq goin on.

    Ha! I am reserving Deep Night by Ghost for this toothache-y evening. When I had a box it actually featured a witch on a broom. Hopefully, we will be housetwins this evening of this very remote and sadly little known house. But this morning to get through my studies - refreshing Un Jardin sur le Nil courtesy of Hermes and My Dearest PerfumedLady!

    And to everyone else - I have two spots left for HdP Tuberose mini pass. Please join us it will be fun! we already have one tuberose convert so far

    Lol, Whitefluffy! Here I am in one of your old loves and there you are in one of my favorite houses! Coincidences are funny!

    More and more, this Ghost is bringing to mind ELdO's Vraie Blonde. The fruits in both are awfully sugary for my nose but they are very realistically apricot/peachy. Very smooth, a flouncy cloud of stone fruits. Will go well with the chocolate I'm about to get into! Folks who like VB would do well to pick up Ghost if they find it.

    Hey y'all!

    I suppose I should post my black kitty pic too, although he's not really very spooky, lying in the sunbeam like that ...but he is very appropriate since I'm wearing Mystère de Rochas, and I've been known to say that the civet in this one reminds me of sun-warmed kitty fur. I think I'm lucky that way with the warm kitty fur ...others I know get poop from civet.

    We stopped in a Rite Aid this afternoon on our way back from the cinema (Chasing Mavericks) -- my daughter wanted to check out the nail polish.

    While I was waiting for my daughter to decide, I saw a little display with Demeter Jasmine and sprayed the tester on my left hand. Horrors! A synthetic plasticky smell, and wouldn't you know it, unlike most Demeters, this one seems to be tenacious.

    No. 5 Eau Premiere, there's something in this that makes me sniffly and snuffly.

    LOL went to the dept. store and saw the tons of silly Brad Pitt photos everywhere! LOL. They look so funny! My husband chuckled too. Who is that photographer? LOL. I just think of those, "I can't believe it's not butter" ads. lol. Or isn't Fabio the Old Spice guy now? Lol.

    "Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom." "It is honorable for a man to stop striving, Since any fool can start a quarrel." Proverbs.
