    Default SotD Tuesday, 22 January 2013

    Good morning, folks!

    I am enjoying a Dzing! day... heavily spritzed myself and that's the way to do it.
    Forget the circus... that image has been stressed way too much. Wearing it feels like being involved into slightly too much dirty talk (Hi Quarry !) or having slept on a rough leather sheet on a hot and sweaty summer's night.
    This is one I had in my wardrobe and the first to re-appear... soon!

    Best to all

    Not sure you have made Dzing sound that appealing, Larimar!!

    I need to defrost my wheels and gingerly negotiate our downward-sloping,
    icy driveway to freedom. Wearing Fendi and I have a cold - so look out
    people....

    Morning All,

    I'm wearing Fumerie Turque today. Much of the snow from Sunday has now turned to icy slush. Mind how you go, Kewart and I hope your cold clears up soon.

    Have a lovely day, folks.

    hello Larimar, Kewart, and all

    oh i love Dzing whan i was buying my Vanilia, i was making decision between Dzing and Vanilia.....i also cant get any circus with that thing, i get cardboard, the drydown is very nice, but i went with easier sweeter option, all L Artizans are in a waz transparent light, they never feel heavy! so i think they need to be applied properly hehehe

    i am joining the club of stinkers with Amouage Gold on some days it feels nobel luxurious very different!....but its one of those scents that i can hardly understand there are people who name it number one on their top list its very bitter!!

    Take care out there, everyone.

    Hello everyone, windy and cold (21F) here today. Lately I'm finding I enjoy florals in cold weather, in fact the colder it is the better they work on me. So today it is vintage Diorissimo. So beautiful.

    Kewart feel better and be careful in the ice and snow, ditto everyone contending with same.

    Best to all.

    Much respect to you L - I can't handle Dzing! at all. An olfactory car crash on me (smelled like a shire horse after a hard day toiling with the plough).

    Still below freezing here, and the heating in the lavs has broken at work. Need to go carefully otherwise icicles will be forming in all sorts of unimaginable places

    Hope you feel better soon, kewart.

    Good morning everyone!

    I had a nice long run in LizSport earlier, and now I'm in Chanel No5, several layers of it, lol ...soap, bath oil as moisturizer (divine!) and, although I was very well-fragranced and could have stopped there, a few spritzes of vintage-80s edp ...I just can't ever resist the spritz.

    Y'all have a great day!

    Had a really hard time getting on Basenotes this morning, don't know if it was just me or a site problem. It's still dreadfully cold, even worse than yesterday, but hopefully it's suppose to warm to -3F today.

    SotD is Estee Lauder Sensuous Noir.





    Stay warm and safe, everyone!

    Yes, this- me, too! Other than Fleur Oriental, I've barely touched my so-called "winter scents" this year. BTW, this new avatar is even lovelier than the last one- you're a beautiful gal!

    Sending a big get-well hug to Kewart!

    30R, that hand cream looks really nice and what a bargain! The beeswax- this is why I've been using the Burt's Bees lately; my excema seems to respond to it very well. And I'd be remiss in not mentioning FrouFrou's homemade cream; a sample jar of it got me through last winter. It smells wonderful, she uses ylang, rose and lavender to fragrance it. I wonder if she's still making it?

    Speaking of florals, I'm in HdP Tubereuse 1 today. This is turning out to be one of my most worn of the winter. I have spring fever already, thank goodness for flowers in perfume!

    Finally applied fragrance. I'm craving orangey citrus but with warmth so wearing Cacharel Amor Amor. Slightly too sweet to totally meet my craving but very cheap and very cheerful.

    The view from my kitchen window is very uplifting, snowy Pennine hills fronted by a winter wonderland of kids sledging and playing snowballs on the cul de sac. So pleased that the combo of a poorly car and sciatica led me to work at home

    Cold and snow here. Itchy from water exercise and whirlpools—all that chlorine—I smartly warm up my Shalimar lotion under the electric blanket. I get out of bed smooth and unruffled to face the day (:

    I received a wonderful packet of vintage Chanel samples (besides others ) today from a certain BN angel. The generosity of members here never ceases to gladden my heart. Thank You !

    Going with No.5 EdC tonight ( from said packet ). I think I'm at real risk of developing Repetitive Sniffing Injury. It's worth it, though.

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.

    Whitefluffy, it was all across, from TX to AZ with the stop in NM (I think we stopped in Lordsburg for the night). We sometimes do it -- US highways are paved with our hard-earned money, you have heard I know. Yay for Bandit on you, BTW.
