    Default SotD: Monday 28th January 2013

    Good morning!

    Starting the week with a heavy snowfall... it's turning to rain in a few hours, the forecast says

    It's the perfect day for warming up with L'Eau Lente!

    Have a nice Monday, all of you.

    Well finished work at 21:00 last night. Start again at 23:00 tonight and in between I'll have to go to do some work at the new house, so it's full steam ahead! I'll be needing frequent applications of a good hard working Cologne. The delightful SMN Acqua Di Sicilia will do nicely!

    A solitary snowflake for Jon. We, too, like iodine and jujy, have our should-be snow turning into rain.

    While we did have some new white stuff on the ground yesterday evening, I went out and fetched the cold ingredient for a Scotch & Snow.

    Plaisir, I almost applied a sample of Gardénia Pétale this morning because florals sweep me off my feet, but having read another thread's posts by Larimar and Hedonist, instead sprayed on En Avion extrait. It's outside my normal comfort zone, but my comfort zone has relaxed and expanded with the ever-lessening of life's stresses. I can't tell you, fragrant friends, how wonderful it is to arrive at a stage where it doesn't feel like life is demanding more of me than I'm prepared to give, that I have sufficient creative outlets to permit the mind to frolic, that I have purpose to my activities and little fear of unpleasant surprises. A spicier scent like En Avion can be observed for its artistry, even as its heat burns a little in my child-like nasal receptors.

    Wishing all a low-stress week.

    I was almost scent twins with you this morning, Evangeline, but I went with Coco edp instead, finishing up an old decant. This was never my style, and I didn't wear it back in the day, but it is such a beautiful fragrance I can't stop sniffing myself this morning. I always, when smelling this, hear ivory and cinnabar bangles sliding together on an arm, hear dice clicking together in a cup being shaken. For some reason its resiny quality evokes aural imagery.

    Quarry, I'm glad things are in balance and that you are at peace. Very glad. xo

    It's a hot and sunny beautiful day here, wind is blowing with a slight stiffness to the air - absolutely glorious. I was in a sh*tty mood yesterday (thus my absence) but things turned around I am greeting the day with positive thoughts, gratitude and hope. See how things turn around, sometimes?

    I rarely wear this to work, but today I needed a little 'comfort' to go along with me throughout the day...and this stuff works like a charm:

    Shalimar vintage Eau de Cologne layered with vintage Extrait/Parfum + Body Cream + Body Powder + Habit Rouge deodorant



    I smell friggin gorgeous, my friends...GOR-GEOUS!

    Lilybelle - nice to see you posting more regularly now, you were missed ((hugs))
    Momma Quarry - a glass has been raised to your 'comfort zone' ((hugs))
    Larimar - here's to 4,000 more posts! ((hugs))

    Anyone need any hugs?

    We've warmed up finally, it's 27F and snowing, I'm hoping we've seen the last of the sub zero temps.

    It's snowing here but it's not supposed to amount to much more than a messy PM commute.

    I transferred the contents of my Enchanted Forest sample to an atomizer and sprayed it solely over clothing (I had previously decided I liked it more on paper than on skin.) Oh, no-- no way! The musk and amber combined with the blackcurrant in a way that didn't work at all for me. Off came the clothes and down the laundry chute right away. Hubby can try the sample next.

    And now I'm in L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger and considerably happier.

    About my fragrance, anyway. I see clicking on "New Posts" is bringing up the Database Error notice.

    I'm testing Naomi Goodsir Cuir Velours today. This started out wonderfully; a very rich, velvety leather with just tiny hints of the immortelle and tobacco peeking through. But, it has suddenly turned waaay powder-y. Not that I have anything against powder-y ... it's just not working for me too well.

    Notes: leather, tobacco, rum, cistus labdanum, incense, immortelle

    Quarry - Being able to enjoy the fruits of your labor is a wonderful place to be. So funny instead of taking time to smell the roses, you're taking time to smell your wrist...

    Whitefluffy - That picture is stunning - it's like medicine. About this time of the year, when I haven't seen green for a while, that is the thing I start craving. Do you know where it was taken?

    Speaking of medicinals - I could still smell the Black Musk from yesterday when I woke up this morning.

    Weather is back to normal here also - 6 below F, but it's supposed to warm up again in a few days The warm-ups that hammer Southcentral AK from time to time in winter are called the Pineapple Express because they come straight up from Hawaii, bringing warm, moist air. On the satellite view it looks like a long white pipeline headed straight for us.

    Seeing my fragrance-aholic dentist today. I hope he's wearing his Aramis. I'm going to surprise him and wear an oud, probably Creed's Royal Oud, a fairly mannered one. He's only been exposed to the perfume counter at Nordstrom's and Penney's.

    And a belated Happy Anniversary to Quarry and Mr. Q

    I tried all weekend to get on and was thwarted every darn time. GAH!

    Today looks more like the Pacific Northwest (gray, damp, and foggy but not too cold) than the Great Plains in January. I don't have much to complain about, though, given the rather nice temperatures, but it would be nice to get actual *rain* instead of mist. Sigh.

    I'm enjoying the comfort of Ava Luxe No. 23. I found myself wanting some florals with my sandalwood this morning.

    I found it on Google. According to the website it's a Crandall Valley in Wyoming. I think, I understand why you liked it, isn't it a little bit like Alaska in the summer? One of these days my husband and I would really love to visit, what a beautiful place you live in .
