    Default SotD, Saturday 10th November 2012

    Good morning all! Let's get the weekend party started!

    I had such busy week, fast-paced and filled with hard work.

    Luckily I had a good motivation because almost every day I got a smelly package.

    On one day I got samples from Neela Vermeire, the other my fat decant of L'Heure Bleue arrived and Jo Malone sent me a sample of her newest fragrance in Jo Loves line. I want more of that motivation. Let's hope more samples will keep coming!

    This weekend my blog is holding a poll about perfume suitable for a year-round wear. If you feel like sharing your ideas, please join the party.

    And this weekend is BIG, my guest post at Olfactioria's Travels was published yesterday. Very exciting!

    Today I feel like wearing L'Eau d'Hiver by Frederic Malle. So lovely, so close to Histoires de Parfums 1725. Still I love 1725 better, much better.

    Goodmorning! Congrats on all the samples and the guest post Lucasai! I will check out the post later today. L'eau d'Hiver is lovely - wore it the other day and enjoyed its soothing gentleness. You have made curious to try 1725 now!

    Wearing Hermes Kelly Caleche EdP today - from a sample generously provided by Hermes. I am in love with both the EdP and the EDT.

    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..."

    Nice Saturday morning is shaping up here, sunny and going to be +22C. By tonight, K's storm is catching up with us and we are expecting snow thunderstorms and -5C come Sunday.

    Cleaned the house, ground the beef, will bake pumpkin bars shortly.

    SotD is Victoire Gobin Daude Nuit au Desert from my new full bottle. Ex-ci-ting!

    Hi, I'm wearing Beautiful. Got a mini of this with a Knowing gift set I bought myself last winter, and just began trying it lately. Wow, I sure think it's.....beautiful . I will keep my eye peeled this year for a set, would love one with a powder, with a huge white puff.

    Still deciding on my SotD. I'm currently trying a sample of Hermes Voyage EDT (tried the parfum last night). Initial thoughts: I'm such a HUGE fan of Ellena...so it just kills me to report that this smells like lemon Pledge furniture polish to me. The parfum version, even more so. Could I be more devastated? OK, not devastated, but very disappointed. I'm going to give it some more time. Then, I'll give it a few more tries. You never know... Some of my favorite fragrances were not love at first sniffs.

    Testing TABAC from profumo.it

    This is my first tobacco scent i ever tried , its so so lovely, was marketed and described as the real thing for men, but this is so lovely contemplating, and calming scent, a touch warm vanillic in the dry down, perfectly balanced , that i simply fell in love with it.....

    Have all nice evening!

    There's a thick coating of ice on everything from the freezing rain we've been getting all morning. Snow will be here in a couple of hours, sure hope our power doesn't go out.

    Literally and finally the last couple of sprays of Mure et Musc Extreme.

    Such an everyday, lovely, all purpose smell for me that I will sure miss it until I can afford another bottle.

    Finally chose my SotD, which at this point will be my SotE: Chanel Cristalle EDP (J. Polge). Citrus and florals that sing on the skin.
