Thread: SotD: Sunday 20th Jan 2013
Good morning all !. Time to batten down the hatches here - the snow that was supposed to be arriving around midday is coming down with a vengeance already and looks set in for the day. Sunday roast to prepare and something warming to select from the drinks cabinet. Work tomorrow should be fun .
SotD is Vol de Nuit.
Seems appropriate today -
Bitterly cold, windy and snowless here. Weird.
Guerlain Cuir Beluga.
Welcome back Wolfie.
Scentless as yet. Waiting for inspiration th strike

Good Morning Everyone,
House twin with Mr. Rodgers: Guerlain Liù.
Have a lovely Sunday, whatever you're up to.
Hello everyone, Estee Lauder Sensuous Nude. Have a lovely Sunday.
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
Hello all. A sample of Huitieme Art Parfums Myrrhiad.
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..."

Will be spending the day grinding out yet another paper for this degree I didn't really need and probably should never have started! AAAAAAAAAAAAGH!
But I will be doing it in Samsara EDP
Bitterly cold is right, Twolf. The temp is 7°C/-13°F. The wind is blowing an assaulting 20 mph. And what did DD sign us up to do? Volunteer at an outdoor run at the zoo this morning. I am going only out of motherly love. BRRRRR! Don't know if I'll smell anything through my six layers of clothes, but Black Vetyver Cafe will be in there somewhere.
Twolf, if you go outside and feel a gush of warmth from the east, that's my heart pumping a torrent of care for your well-being. You are brilliant and strong and courageous and loved by many.
Thank you, guys. While I am humbled, I can't do it without you -- many of you have provided much needed support and encouragement through tough times. Thank you again.

Good afternoon, all!
Just back from work again; there's been a slight thaw here today although it's still snowing. l expect it'll all freeze again overnight though, & apparently it's going to stay like this for a few days yet, which l'm actually pleased about. lt makes such a nice change from rain, & l love how beautiful everything looks in the snow. l'll be sad when it's gone.
SOTD was Ginger by Gorilla perfumes.
Hello everyone -
I'm in HdP 1889 Moulin Rouge this morning. Y'all have a fantastic day!
Welcome back, gandhajala! I hope you managed some fun along with your work.
Welcome back to you too, (((Wolfie))) - I'm so glad to see you here! Sending more thoughts of love, support and encouragement to you and Mr.T, and hoping that he's home with you soon. ♥
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
Last night we had fog in Miami - we NEVER have fog. It made driving around (with my stereo in my car blasting, like it always is) like something out of a movie. Wonderfully surreal. The temps have inched back up, it's hot and sunny this afternoon - suntan weather, actually.
Woke up feeling sort of 'grey', I had to force myself to do some errands around the house to get my mental gears moving. While I did this I dabbed on some of Momma Quarry's favorite's (first time from a sample):

I am not a musk person. In fact, as many of you know, I can't smell many musks (nothing!). But I do enjoy a good fruit note and this one doesn't disappoint. The blackberry is very tart, almost red-currant-esque. I wish I could smell the musk to see how it intermingles with the berry notes, but nonetheless the vanilla and tempered sweetness helps me visualize a bowl of berries, dusted with sugar and vanilla extract. I like it Quarry! I also feel, at least olfactorily, you are here with me today keeping me cheered up.
Bear hugs to all of you in bitterly cold weather = stay warm!
