    Default SOTD: Saturday 3rd November

    Morning ladies,

    I just looked out my window this morning and my car is frozen solid with a harsh frost so its incredibly cold up here.

    I need something to combat this.

    Hermes - Terre d'Hermes EDT

    I hope everyone has a nice relaxing Saturday x

    Hi gang,

    lilybelle - just saw you on yesterday's thread.
    A sunny yet chilly day here in London. Time to dig out the (faux) fur parka, I think.
    Wishing everyone a lovely weekend. xx

    Oh Dr.G torturing me and MikeP with his parka again this year..... (For those who do not know: Last year it was a mystery and we all wanted to see his parka and he was so smooth and wriggled out).

    Well, it is finally a Saturday off for me too -- first time since September 15th. Undecided yet, but thinking of something along the lines of SnS, saffron in particular. Hope to get some ideas from you.

    Posted this in the sns thread but my sotd for sns is Saaliiisssiimo by Hilde Soliani. Was based on a dish that was comprised of licorice, spicy saffron and rice. I do love licorice but I am not sure if I like it with saffron! Spicy licorice with a bit of a powdery dry down. I would guess vanilla is in this and perhaps another spice. Pretty gourmand but in a plastic-y way, if that makes sense! lol. I don't even know what a rice note would smell like really! But I can't say I get it in this. Not sure. Pretty sure there is a musk note in this as well on the dry down. These specific notes together just don't do it for me. Lol, is the musk supposed to be the rice note? Cause all I get is musk there, lol. Was hoping to like this as I do like licorice and saffron.. but learned I don't like them together! At least in this fume anyway. I do like my sweet fumes but this one is sweet in a bad way! Won't be thinking about a fb. The musky dry down + combo of notes makes it a scrubber.

    Good morning!

    Twolf, enjoy your day off!

    Happy belated Birthday to PerfumedLady's dad!

    Woke up today to an inch of snow on the ground, so it's a perfect day for
    the (spicy) SnS. Wearing Parfumerie Generale Querelle from a decant. Notes
    are citrus, Iranian black caraway, myrrh, cinnamon, Haitian vetiver, incense,
    oakmoss and ambergris. Really like the myrrh and incense in this one.





    Have a great day!

    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..."

    Hello, everyone!

    I'm wearing Roja Dove Scandal today... haven't worn this in months, it seems. The accompanying image: China-born Japanese actress and singer Lǐ Xīanglán (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoshiko_%C5%8Ctaka). She led an interesting and eventful life and lives to tell the tale... at age 92!

    You've got the wrong man ! The Great Parka Mystery of '11 involved a certain person of Austrian descent .
    I was amused to find the trim of my coat still smelled of Cuir de Russie (beside other perfumes) after all those months in storage. I quite like that.

    There's our Dr. G.!! You look so cute! I love when you can pull something out of storage and still smell a fragrance on it.

    I finally decided to wear some 1725 Casanova for Sniff & Speak. I really love this. I may have worn this for opposite gender SnS, too. Can't remember.

    Good afternoon, all!

    I'm starting to wear some of the perfumes that I admire a great deal but don't seem to wear often; most of these are scents I only seem to put on when the weather is cool. Today it's Armani Privé Ambre Soie.

    Here it is.

    Not a man of great words today. I lost my own bred dog bitch way too young yesterday (sudden cardiac death). Losing her dam (again way too young) broke my heart - not only her way of dying was traumatizing, but she was my mirror. These dogs constantly
    put my frustration potential to the test and it's exausted now.

    Comfort in Shalimar, vintage Extrait tonight.

    I'm sorry for your loss, Larimar...

    This was a busy week for me, I was mostly wearing Chanel extraits, N.5 and 19 and Coco.
    I find the classics reassuring in a sense, they remind me how life should be, now that it changes so violently...

    This morning I chose to wear
    Aoud Roses Petals by Montale.



    I am going to make a margarita now and wear some Joy!

    Have a lovely evening, all!

    Hi everybody!
    Between family visiting and my new job, I haven't been around the forum all that much lately.
    My SOTD was Hermes L'Ambre Des Merveilles

    It's good to see all of you, I really like Dr. G's parka picture.

    Larimar, I'm sorry for the loss of your dog.

    Many hugs all around.

    ((Mike)) what a wretched time you had with that bug! I don't think I've ever read of anyone having a worse stomach virus.

    My little dab of Ambre Soie from earlier today is still going strong, but I'm a bit tired of it at this point.
