Thread: SOTD: Tuesday 13th November 2012
Morning fragrant ones,
It's cold and very wet up here
I've decided to go with L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme. Yummy!
Hope everyone has a lovely day
Wearing the fresh, dewy Sa Majesté la Rose today. Even managed to coordinate with my Pen Ink of the Day, which is the beautiful Moroccan Rose (by Noodler's Inks).
Best to everyone.

Bulgari Black today.
Hope all are well.
Good morning everyone. I took a notion as soon as my eyes were open to dip into my little tray of Histoires De Parfums samples. So, 1725 (Casanova). The most wonderful citrus/lavender/anise/beeswaxy/amber vanilla. Old furniture polish!! Lovely.
A long dental procedure today so after showering it will be just some Cologne, not sure which yet. Actualaaaaaay, some Blenheim Bouquet, from a tiny bottle I have!
Wearing Dzing! today.
My my how I love it. And its been a while too. There was enough of a gap for me to call it a rekindling experience.
I forgot how animalic yet domesticated it is at the same time. As if a farmer walked into a parlor at a posh hotel.

Up early, I have a Sales Meeting at the office and all of my realtors will be in the office at the same time, always a maddening experience. So it's something powerful & comforting:
Egoiste by Chanel
"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in — or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."
-- Eckhart Tolle
SOTD: Von Eusersdorff Classic Patchouli. This is rapidly becoming my "got-to" patch. Woody, earthy and with a delightfully smooth ambery drydown. Loving this stuff every day more and more...

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..."

SOTD is Dior Dolce Vita. Best to all!
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
SotD - Silver Mountain Water by Creed
I'm in vintage Safari this morning, one of my absolute favorite Dominique Ropion creations, right up there with Portrait of a Lady, Ysatis and Euphoria ...he just has such a knack for bodacious, gorgeous drama.
Y'all have a great day!
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
Pacifica Persian Rose, one of them cases -- why don't I wear it more often?
Good morning everyone! Today I'm wearing Pure Oud by Kilian.
It's cold this morning, only 13 degrees, but the sun is out and it's suppose
to warm up a little today. Hopefully all our ice from the weekend will melt.
Hugs and to Twolf & Kalli.
My SotD is Mona di Orio Les Nombres d'Or Ambre.
Have a great day!
Foustie; the only part that I liked about going to the dentist was the laughing gas. Do they even offer it in the UK? I haven't a clue. Anyway, wear lots of cologne to distract yourself
Hello. Another hectic day.
SOTD is Tubereuse Criminelle... it's twisted and fun!

Everyone smells wonderful today! Especially you two, Evangeline and Twolf!
(((Foustie))), no fun! Poor gel, I hope your procedure goes absolutely perfectly, with as little pain as possible.
I smell pretty darned good today, too- I'm starting on Whitefluffy's HdP tuberose pass; wearing Tubereuse 1 La Capricieuse. Loving this one so far, looks like it will be a tough act for the others to follow.
Thank you all again for your sweet words and beautiful pics yesterday, I truly loved them all! Had a great day and my BN family helped make it so. The kindest and classiest of people gather here!
The nose wants what it wants!

Today I'm scent-tin with Tdem in Dolce Vita.
Annick Goutal all the way baby! All three Orientalists for me today.
Celebrated my postie milestone with a purchase of Eau de Sud & Matins orange-y thingie body cream.
Running out to make Meals on Wheels deliveries this morning.

Ooooh, Foustie, I just got a reminder email from my dentist to make an appointment for a checkup. Good luck today. Also, I love HdP 1725. You sent me a set of samples and I so enjoyed trying those. 1725 is brilliant.
Easyfish, I like your pic today, too.
I haven't chosen a SotD yet. It's rainy and chilly and I can't decide. Maybe some kind of layering experiment with rose, inspired by....
Gandhajala, I love the idea of Ink of the Day! I may start using a fountain pen again. I have an old one somewhere. Your roses sound lovely today. I was at the botanical gardens yesterday, sniffing away at the last of the roses. Each one has its own scent. I really enjoy that.
Love to you all.
E., that's one stunning picture of a Voilette de Madame. Do you know who was posing for this shot? I want to look like this when I grow up. Do you?
Thanks for the hugs. Baking bread, -6C outside.
Hugs back...wearing overly loud Chanel Chance. I think it's pretty loud anyway..imo.
Congrats, RHM for reaching 3,000 posts!
Yay to RHM for her prolific posting !!!!
I'm in Dior Hypnotic Poison today. So dreamy and smooth.

Congratulations, RHM! It'll take me a decade to reach 3,000 at the rate I'm going.
LadyM, as usual, fantastic photo and pairing with the twisted Tubereuse Criminelle. Brava!
Good luck, Foustie. May you feel as little as possible. You'll smell wonderful, though.
I'm house twins with PerfumedLady and momentary house twins with Foustie in HdP Ambre 114.
Lordy, I had my Holy Trinity of Ambers all set (Ambre Sultan, Ambre Russe, and Amber Absolute). It looks like I'll have to expand that to ... hmmm ... what is both superlative and focused on 4 ...? How about the Cardinal Ambers? (After the cardinal directions?)
In any event, I love Ambre 114 more and more with every wearing. This (along with Mazzolari Patchouly) may be my next full-bottle purchase.
