    Default SotD Friday, 2nd November 2012

    Good morning all!

    Decided to test-drive a sample of Maison Francis Kurkdjian Absolue Pour le Matin I got with my latest perfume purchase. It smells nice so far.

    Many fragrances make me feel seksay (the spelling shamelessly pilfered from shades) in different ways. Yes, I am so synching today! Jean Couturier Coriandre (my compliment-getter, head-turner and jotting paper-producing long-time stand by).

    Not in sync, tested Interlude Woman. I must not like immortelle, something is off about this to me. Don't think I'd buy a bottle. Hubs said there was something nice about it but was too masculine. Something came out a while after I wore this, smelled like a cooking spice. Idk, didn't like it. Too bad cause the bottle is so nice, can't afford it anyway, lol. Someone said it smelled of paint thinner and lawn clippings in a review I saw, not that bad lol but not my fave offering thus far from the house.

    Hello everyone, back from the other side of Hurricane Sandy. We lost power, cell, land lines, and heat Monday evening, but got everything back last night. Apart from that, nothing major (our fence blew away and food spoiled). Small inconvenience in the face of what others endured here: flooding, severe damage and loss of property and, in many cases, of life. Heartbreaking to see the devastation, humbling to realize just how fortunate we were. It's so good to be back, I missed you all.

    SOTD is vintage Shalimar parfum, because why the heck not.

    ((((((((Jon R))))))))))
    A very happy birthday to 30Roses' mom and my best to you all. xo

    Voleur de Roses. My daughter has stolen it from me since wearing it on Halloween, but I've managed to spritz before she took off with it this morning. It actually smells better on her.

    Happy birthday of 30R's mum!

    All the best to you all.

    What a photo, Roberto (sigh!!). I love it more than ever. Thank you for always posting romantic photos.

    I don't know what my SotD will be. I haven't decided what will make me feel sexy today. It will have to be something ancient I think.

    I'm ready for wine o'clock already, Foustie, but it's too early here and I have errands to run. See you later...save a spot for me!!

    Love to everyone.

    p.s. Happy Birthday to 30 Roses' Mom! xo

    ((tdem)) I'd heard that Long Island had a bad time of it, glad you are back to having heat and power again. I'm sure not having cell phone use made it extra hard!

    Thanks to all for wishing Mom a happy birthday (she's 84) --I'll be sure to pass along all your good wishes when I go over there to walk her to her PT appointment. Then later on we'll take her out to supper.

    I'm wearing a sample of JM French Lime Blossom today.

    Hey, what happened? After learning last night what today's synch was, I thought it would be all naughty in here today! I feel ripped off, heh-heh!

    I've always had a difficult time trying to figure out what that word - sexy - even means, anyway. I guess I just don't "got it!"
    But I will synch and wear something that makes me feel purrrrrry... Gucci Eau de Parfum. The original brown juice of heliotrope, orange blossom, thyme and I can't remember what else... gorgeous.

    Well, I suppose I am coincidentally in sync, but honestly, lots of my perfumes make me feel sexy, so it would almost be hard not to be in with this particular sync. This Miss Dior LP is certainly doing the trick, but I must admit I completely forgot about the sync, so I'm sort of back-pedaling now ...just trying to make it work. Sorry 'bout that.

    I'll go for something a bit more deliberately sexy later on tonight.

    Yay, Tdem! I'm glad you've got power back. We just heard this morning heard from a brother in law on the island (north shore) on his cell phone - they only have sporadic availability on that. They lost power Monday afternoon and still don't have it back, and they think it may be another 2 weeks, but apparently LIPA has said a week now. But if you got it back earlier, maybe that is good news for them as well. They have been using their fireplace for heat, parking the kids in front of that, and camping out in the living room. Getting gasoline is a problem. Other than all of that, they have suffered no damage and that is a huge blessing.

    I'm wearing Montale's Roses Elixir this morning, a bright & happy citrussy rose scent. Not particularly sexy, but I've got non-sexy chores to do today so that's ok. Uplifting will do me well.

    Well, the migraine is back, been scentless all day. Had I synced in something sexy, it would have been Shalimar. Even though to Mr.PL it is not, it's just baby powder to him. That's because he's olfactorily challenged, it's not Shalimar's fault!

    Just had to stop by and wish Mama 30R the happiest of birthdays! Hope her 84th is a very special one! She just happens to share a b-day with my dad, he is 64 today. And he's more than happy about it; he retires in a few months! He sure is in excellent company with his Nov.2nd birthday.

    G., so great to see you!

    I'm in synch today (and scent twins with senore01 this morning) with Jaipur Homme. JH was the first masculine scent I wore and the first time, I was blown away by how sexy I felt! I felt like a really bad girl with a deep secret and that was pretty liberating ... Jaipur Homme still makes me feel this way. It's my little secret ...

    We had a very nice dinner out at a local restaurant. Mom ordered moussaka, I had a broiled lobster, daughter had paella and hubby ordered prime rib. Mom was given a complementary piece of baklava with a birthday candle in it. I think she had a good time.
