Thread: SotD: Friday, 28th Dec., 2012
Good morning from a sunny and windy Milan!
Myrrhiad for me, today.
"Your fragrance with a fume of iodine" L. Cohen
Hello, everyone. Juliette Has a Gun Lady Vengeance for me today.
Happy Friday, all xxoo
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
Dune by Dior
Had to go to the crazy city... lots of tourists etc. Anyway, I managed to get out again with some nice cold cuts as a reward. A Jicky Extrait cloud around me to insulate myself from the outside frenzy and bland ( smelling most perfumes on people passing by).
Good afternoon. I've been away since Wednesday and so glad to be back in London! I can only take the country in small doses
SOTD is Portrait of a Lady. Oh, how I've missed my perfume collection!

Hallo and HAGD to all! I am wearing Van Cleef & Arpels First EdP today
Good morning. Happy Friday, Jailia today, sunny happy smell for a cold kinda gray day. We are going to Busch Gardens, just me and the teens so we can do all the big rollercoasters!!
..............Montale - Full Incense (sample)
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..."
Clarice Lispector ( 1920-1977) - Perfumes da Terra / Earth Perfumes
I hope you have a fun day, Robin, with your kids!
SotD is Hermes Ambre Narguile.
Have a great day!
I am wearing Une Fleur de Cassie (from a sample) and waiting
for some friends to arrive for the weekend. Have a fun day everyone!
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
The original Shalimar Eau Legere today (and last night).
Baby, it's cold outside. Warming up in the peppery goodness of L'Artisan Poivre Piquant (white pepper, milk & honey)
He looks happy though.
Oooh, fun, Robin! You gals have a good time!
Haha, our favorite ad started me off with a giggle! Real funny, G.!
Lol, I had a spray of one of my Christmas pressies, Coromandel, last night- first thing this morning Mr. PL said, "I can smell you"! And it's still going strong. Will sync in something from 2012 after a shower, I guess!

The nose wants what it wants!
La Via del Profumo's Rose des Bois today, after a *VERY* VERY long while of not wearing it.
It's three years old, and I suspect some of the top notes are gone, but I still like it very much! Creamy, kinda incensey. I have no idea what's in it. It smells nice though. I remember reading that Profumo (Dominique Dubrana) made it for a matron. I guess I'm a matron now too, although I wasn't when he gifted it to me.
It's like a cross between Holy Water and something orange-y/spicey like those dried oranges with the cloves stuck in them that I made in Girl Scouts one Christmas.
I hope everyone is staying warm! (In the northern hemisphere that is.)

Last work day of the year!!!
I will be joining Kiliwia in Hermes Ambre Narguile, all spicy and sweet, like me
Heading into a long weekend and I can't wait!
Good morning everyone! We all slept late-- really late. Felt good to get caught up.
Sotd is an oldie goldie, Ambush.
Boutonniere No. 7 by Arquiste (first time from a sample)
"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"
-- Eckhart Tolle
Evening all . Back from a grey and damp Yorkshire in the nick of time. I'm sure I heard someone calling ....
Bottoms up !
Gris Clair today.
Wishing everyone a safe and enjoyable weekend.
DSH Cordial for me today.
Have a great weekend!
Jon - the clock here seems to have been stuck on 'wine o'clock' all this week. *vaguely guilty look*
PL- Just remember: 'It's not a journey. Every journey ends, but we go on...'
Twinned with Larimar tonight.
Best to you all.
No changes here... Jicky Extrait ce soir!
L de Lolita Lempicka today.
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Roller coasters, Cuisinart pan, wine -- fun stuff.
I sprayed my intended outfit for tonight with 24 Faubourg and Sabi so they can dry down to the good bits.
There's a rumor that our 4th grade teacher might attend the reunion. Nobody's happy about, I think it's safe to say.
Thank you Whitefluffy! Glad you think so, I'm making you a decant to wear for Mr. W!
Speaking of you, Whitefluffy- you derailed my plans to sync today! Before I could dig out the Impossible Iris I was going to wear, an envelope arrived with a sample of 1950's Chanel No.5 Extrait! And vintage EDC too! Of course I could not resist the extrait and will likely have a spray of EDC in a bit. This extrait is divine, my own little Christmas miracle! Oh, the sandalwood and animalics! Expect a nice long thank you message from me this weekend, W.!
Don't be too jealous, G.! This vintage is sooo beautiful but I don't think it would make you happier than your EDP. That 80's EDP really does strike me as a very fine masculine.
The nose wants what it wants!
SotE is Rose Ikebana
It's still cold here! Warming up in Sonoma Scent Studio Winter Woods.
In synch with a 2012 release: By Kilian Forbidden Games.
TGIF! hugs to all ...
I've trademarked the color bleu
Ran out the door to work in Samsara this morning. This evening it's a spritz of Habanita
Continuing in Donna Karan Fuel for Men (reissue) tonight. Damn near edible!
