    Default SOTD Thursday 24th Jan 2013

    Good morning everyone.

    Sampling Huiteme Art Vohina today. Peach blossom, lavender honey and hay. A lovely thing out of the vial. We will see how it goes.

    Before L. posts with much worse things *giggle*, I am in Patou Vacances, it is below 0F here (-20C) but I am not complaining: the chocolate glaze has scented the whole kitchen area nicely.

    Good day to all!

    No, I heard on Brian Williams yesterday that Alaska is warmer than our Upper Mid-West. Kiliwia will be even colder than us, our night lows are normally their daytime highs.

    Pure as the driven snow, me.

    Bois des Iles, today.

    This evening we have our Perfume Lovers London Meetup. This time the focus is vintage perfumes, and I've heard rumours of '30s L'Heure Bleue and Coty's Chypre.

    Have a lovely day, folks.

    Still very cold here, -18F with a wind chill of -35F. This afternoon it
    will finally warm up a little and we'll get some snow.

    Wearing Jo Malone Dark Amber & Ginger Lily this morning.

    Come down here everyone, to Miami, and warm up - it's nice and sunny here, crisp and bright. Beautiful.

    Wearing a sample of...

    Arso by Profumum



    I have had this sample sitting on my sample pile, patiently waiting for me to wear it. It was, from reading everyone's comments since it was released, everything that I love about fragrances: Woody, sweet, smoky. And I am happy to report it completely meets my expectations. It's A-MAZING! Gosh, I'm so loving this. The smoky element in this is just so unique. You think 'How many different ways can a perfumer interpret smoke?'. Apparently, many ways. I remember when I was at the CB I Hate Perfume shop in Brooklyn, with BN member Kevin Guyer, we smelled all of his smoke absolutes...I think there was 6 or 7 of them. I loved ALL of them. The smoke note in Arso reminds me of one of them - for lack of a better description is smells like a marshmallow that you've roasted over the fire. That smell! Amazing, it just keeps peeking out around the pine needles, sap, resins. I'm totally enjoying this.

    Mike, I love those smokey notes, too. Enjoy.

    I'm wearing a little Tokyo by Kenzo for my early am walk. Then I'll switch to maybe L'Heure Bleue.

    Hello, everyone!

    Don't mean to rub salt in the wounds, but we are expecting 71F degrees today. It's not as fun here as in Miami, but sun and warmth are promised to all who would like to visit.

    Sounds like an exciting evening, gandhajala, I am thoroughly envious!

    Musse, I hope today's a happier day for you. Hopefully you'll find a suitably cheerful fragrance

    G, have fun! I wish I lived nearer to you folks so we could have evening meet-ups of our own!

    I am suffering with Twolf, one state over. It was 2 degrees Fahrenheit when I arrived at the office this morning. The only good thing I have to say about it is at least the wind wasn't blowing. Which never happens in Nebraska. My deepest sympathies to Kiliwia. Stay warm!

    Whitefluffy, could you hold this mirror for me while I extract these salt pellets fired from your 71 F greeting? Oh, and I owe you a PM, too.

    Mike, Arso has just made my sample list. I'm a sucker for smoke, especially if it's sweet. How does it compare with Slumberhouse Baque?

    Again with the fruit for me today. Frapin 1270.

    Afternoon, all!

    LOL at Jon! And G, have a great night!

    SOTD was L'Instant for a rather stressful day at work. Looking forward to three days off now, starting with a few beers later. l'll decide on my SOTE after a good hot shower.

    Oh, Carolina Girl, I just read about your sick puppy dog. I hope she's improving. My husband has a thing for beagles. We used to have a beagle-corgy -- picture a beagle with an extra-long drivetrain. A beagle's voice is a part of her identity.

    Trying to smell new violet scents today. I'm especially struggling to form some synapses for Arquiste Alesandr. For a second I think I've got it, but then I smell nothing for a while. Then the birch-leather whispers to me. Hide and go seek.

    Hello, boys ... Jon, Larimar.

    Getting a respite from the cold. It's only -2F right now, but is supposed to go back down over the weekend. But, it's nice for now. I'm visiting my sister near Fairbanks, and I had to ground my airplane when it was colder, and couldn't fly back home. It thinks it's a swashbuckler, and I have to protect it from itself, as it has no fear, doesn't know it's a lowly puddle jumper, and I don't have the heart to tell it
    Now that it's warmer, I'm going to make a run for it today, and get back home while the weather's nice! I see what's waiting for me in Southcentral AK is amazingly warm temps. I will be doing this trip in SL's Fille en Aiguelles. It's a sample I got and I like it so far - curious to see how it works for outdoor activities.

    Wow! I am stunned and even more envious of you than of gandhajala's evening. Flying airplanes in Alaska? It doesn't get more adventurous than that!!! And, Fille au Aigilleus (most likely misspelled, but it's getting late and I had few cups of wine) is very fitting, I think you might eventually need a bottle .

    ExtremeK I am afraid I won't be able to hold the mirror for you. Though temps were as advertised it was gloomy and extremely windy. Like lady T is so fond of saying - karma is a (not a very nice lady) and I was properly punished for my gloating .
