    Default SOTD Wed 23rd January 2013

    Morning everyone. What DOES one wear for a day's stripping.....wallpaper that is! Tsk Tsk. Hmmm. Actually some of my kindly donated sample of Coup De Fouet so I can enjoy it wafting beautifully around me!

    Have a great day all.

    Morning all!

    I'm off to the Vietnam embassy to apply for a tourist visa.

    There's only one scent I could be wearing today, and I am: Robert Piguet Visa!

    You smell wonderful Scentsucker - I adore Visa!
    Picturing Foustie stripping in Coup de Fouet (or should that be Foustie?)
    At least it will keep you warm!

    I am cold and snowed-in wearing Bulgari Omnia, whilst I feed the birds, clear the
    drive and tackle a mountain of washing.

    Morning, all!

    Gandhajala, l have to ask, what is a "hump day"?!?

    You guys: one is marinating, one is stripping, one is tackling the mountain, one is pottering (whatever it is? Like Demi Moore in Ghost?), and one is applying for a visa to an impossible destination!

    I am at a 9K mark today. Not like I contribute a lot -- I mostly complain and b*tch, and perhaps need two Johnson and Johnson's bandaids to crisscross over my mouth (or, fingers?). Oh well.... I also pull a Houdini disappearing act -- sorry, it is my silly life. Yeah right. Thanks for being here for me.

    Mr.T is doing better, his Doctor called last night arranging for a pickup day sometime later next week -- January 31, fingers crossed. I am off work today, will be baking a cake for a friend who had lost a relative, something comforting with caramel. Or, honey, possibly.

    One of the lesser known jasmines by Francis Kurkdjian -- but sweet and rich -- Ungaro Femme 2007 (did you know Ungaro fragrances are being produced under Salvatore Ferragamo creative license since 1996?), it is shown in the Directory but the year is wrong.

    Seems like everyone's in a 'punchy' mood today. (giggle)

    Woke up with the need to smell like wood. Seriously. I imagine this sort of thing doesn't happen to non-Basenoters, but it happens to me all the time. And, of course, I spent about 10 minutes in front of my bottles/decants/samples just deciding what type of wood scent I wanted to wear. Exasperating. But effective...since it forced me to wear something I hardly ever wear...

    Zagorsk (Series 3: Incense) by Comme des Garcons



    I am reading a wonderful novel, 'The Magician King' by Lev Grossman. There are forest scenes, where if I imagined a smell to scent that particular scene, it would be Zagorsk. The stages of wood on this are unique: pine, resins, white smoke, incense. I usually douse myself in it, so it sticks, and now I'm enjoying the wonderful gentle whiffs at my office desk. Definitely 'magical'.

    Going to visit my dentist today - can't wait. He always wears Aramis the day I come in, and he smells divine in it (it's the fragrance, not him). I've been trying to decide what to wear for reciprocation, and am going to wear a new sample I like, Bottega Veneta. I was trying to think of something that might complement his Aramis, so we don't clash when he's got his wrist in my nose.

    Been in a dreadful mood today, not sure why. I even indulged in chemical warfare against silly DH; one or too many sprays of Fracas (the one scent he cannot stand). But Karma is a fast acting bitch sometimes - now I feel sick to my stomach myself...gah!!

    Glad to see dear Wolfie back!

    I had a very strange craving for fruit today. Which rarely happens. Which is why I have so few fruity fragrances. Visa wasn't quite fruity enough, so I spritzed myself silly in Euphoria.
