    Thumbs up Sotd- wednesday 14 november 2012

    Hello everyone, good morning


    samples
    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..."

    Morning boys. I LOVE that old Egoist ad!

    Well my stars! After my dental op yesteray I woke up this morning looking like the Grinch. Not green. But I do look as if someone has gone mad with the facial fillers, or a bicycle pump.

    Not to worry. It is normal. But I am confined to barracks, so I am joining our lovely Roberto today with samples, various ones.

    Foustie, ice the face. It will help with the swelling and not hurt so much. I'm in Lou Lou today, want something kind of fun to wear.

    (((Foustie))), take good care of yourself, my dear. I know that facial swelling hurts. Had my wisdom teeth removed a week before my senoir prom, a hundred years ago. Surgeon said swelling would be down in time for the dance. Ended up with prom pictures in which I looked like a well- dressed chipmunk. Go ahead and laugh at me, laughter helps with healing!

    Quarry, thank you for your kind thoughts! You made an excellent choice on the bag- I do get to borrow it, right? Very stylish and so perfect for fall!

    I'm in HdP tuberose #2, Virginale. Just as I thought, this one doesn't hold a candle to Capricieuse for me.

    I'm about to improve my communication greatly, finally got myself a new laptop! Once I get it all set up, I promise to get on top of my unanswered PMs and e-mails. There are a couple BNers I owe some long, loving messages.

    Hello everyone!

    It's a rather cold and grey morning, and I've got ballet ...a perfect day for Chanel Cuir de Russie, current parfum and edt.

    Y'all have a fantastic day!




    ((Foustie)) - poor sweetie! I sure hope you heal up quickly and painlessly.

    and how is it?? i am curious i tested all of the line except that one is it really so weird? shocking?

    i am testing Mecca Balsam , natural from profumo .it and wearing my lovely 31 Rue Cambon again! its no brainer when you want to smell good fresh all day long!

    Mecca Balsam , opens up like a mix of spices you put in a soup( and peppery) its labdanum based scent, sweetish, spiced and smoky, it has good longevity! its very resinous, and bit noire but beautiful!.....i do feel when i wear it like i am heading for some ritual .....interesting and nice longevity!

    Well, my ballet class was cancelled due to some sort of problem with the heating system. Apparently, they just tried to turn it on for the first time this season, but it's a no-go. That's the sort of thing that happens when it gets cold in New Orleans, lol - we just can't deal with this!

    I'm still in my warm blanket of Cuir de Russie, but I just noticed that gandhajala is also sporting it, so I just wanted to remind him about how good we smell ...as if he could forget!

    Donna, you smell wonderful!

    I'm house twins again with Twolf and PerfumedLady. And I'm again in HdP Ambre 114. I simply cannot get enough of this right now. I may be wearing it for the rest of the week. Love, love, love it.

    Glad you approve the orange purse purchase, fine feedback friends. Yes, iivanita (“it goes nice with brown, black, everything but maybe grey?, autumn colours”) that was part of my rational decision-making process. And, yes, PerfumedLady, we can swap bags when we storm Chicago's perfume counters together someday.

    Cestrum, thank you for my Exploration of The Day: VC&A Hiver. I was immediately put in mind of Guerlain's Cologne du Parfumeur. Is anyone else familiar with both of these fragrances? They both strike me as outside the scope of anything bottled before this century (except maybe mimeograph chemicals) -- kicky and quirky.

    Oh Thank You all for for your well wishes. YUP. I've been applying ice. Any more ice and I will look like Marlene Dietrich.

    Oh PerfumedLady, a face like a hamster at your prom. OH NO!!, Sorry, I know that I shouldn't but I can't help but laugh.... Ouch!

    Gonna bathe then douse myself in Etro Patchouli, fantastic.

    Meant to say.... You BOUGHT the orange handbag Quarry! It is fabulous. Good girl.
