    Default SotD: Thursday 7th February 2013

    Good morning all !


    Enjoy your day 30 Roses - Happy Birthday to an exemplary and indispensable member of this community







    Off work the rest of the week, and have been blessed with glorious weather here today. Into town to visit the flight centre and do some serious planning shortly - we have a BIG trip to finalise for later in the year (one or two will probably guess where this is heading - I'll report back).



    SotD is (appropriately and by pure coincidence) Le Labo Rose 31.

    - how exciting ! Is the word 'big' a clue here ? Hmmm...

    Chergui for me today and tonight, as I'm having dinner with friends after work.

    Have a great Thursday, all.

    Thanks, people!! I'm going to be spending a chunk of the day with Mom. If she's less confused today than yesterday, I may be able to take her out for lunch, we'll see.
    SotD is L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger.

    We're expecting a huge snowstorm tomorrow -- apparently two systems are coming together to form a big one. They're using terms like "high impact event", "blinding conditions" and "thunder snow". A good day to be home, all of us.

    I love that cake, Jon!

    Hello everyone!

    I'm enjoying the radiant aldehydes of vintage Vivre de Molyneux this morning, a perfect foil for the damp and drippy weather we're having ...which I really don't mind so much, especially during Mardi Gras season ...it tends to thin the crowds a bit.

    Y'all have a great day!





    Happy Birthday 30 Roses! I hope you have a special day, filled with joy and glorious fragrance!

    And a happy Fat Thursday to Lucas - enjoy!

    Hey Jon - I'll have a guess! Could it be NYC???

    Good luck with that Alityke - you take care of yourself, and that hip!

    Haha , somewhat misleading of me really, I suppose - the "BIG" was only in reference to the journey time involved. We are visiting my sister and are off to New Zealand again !. The only downer being that we have to wait until Dec 14th, but with flight availability (myself, Jenny, parents) rapidly diminishing we needed to sort things ASAP. We will be spending a month with them - Christmas and New Year will be in short sleeves and dosed up with hay fever medication.

    My SotE today is from a newly delivered sample and I am literally BLOWN AWAY.

    Absolutely no dilly-dallying whatsoever, I am logging off and ordering a bottle now, seriously.

    No scent today - ashamed to say that in my rush to leave the house this morning I forgot! I expect that's grounds for being drummed out of BN.

    Just dropped by to wish 30 Roses a very happy birthday (and thanks for the info on original No 1 yesterday. You're right that they don't appear similar at all. I get no rose in the new version. It's more green than floral to me, it reminds me of Gucci Envy).

    Oh yes you are!!!

    Jon, well, you did it. I am scent twins with you right now. I almost bought a bottle two days ago as I had 20% discount, but then I came across deep discounted Merrell shoes and out money for Impossible Iris went. Those of you who are familiar with Merrell, probably know that finding few pairs in your size at deep discount is as easy as spotting chupacabra. But Impossible Iris is very near in my future

    Happy, happy birthday to 30 Roses! I wanted to take this moment to thank you from the depth of my heart for being one of the most wonderful Basenoters, for all your help and guidance, and of course, for Iris Pallida which (I admit it freely now) was entirely your fault!

    Thank goodness I came here before applying scent today! Had no idea what my mood called for but now I know it has to be Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare, otherwise known as the 30 Roses rose! I am very stingy with my 1 oz. bottle of this, keeping it for special occasion wear only. Today most definitely qualifies as an excuse to wear it!

    A very happy birthday to you, 30R! We love you lots!

    You're spot on, Mr. Rodgers, Impossible Iris is on my wishlist! It's fantastic, a happy, sparkly and almost warm iris. Truly something different for us iris lovers, so pleased with this one. You and Whitefluffy smell just divine!

    Jon, I'm envious! A month in New Zealand! How fabulous That's definitely something to look forward to.

    I am revelling today in the wonderful skank of Une Fleur de Cassie. My decant is nearly drained, so I suspect there's a FB of this one in my near future.

    I'm thinking I should start taking a look at the Ramon Monegal line, too....

    Mike and PerfumedLady, you smell wonderful in FdTRB!

    I have to head to Mom's now but not for as long as I planned as I have to take my daughter to an appointment after school-- will have to stop back later to check on her. Mom is really muddled and upset this week. We haven't gotten the urine test results back yet but I'm sure it's a UTI. A couple of days ago she suddenly forgot that my father died 3 years ago and has been calling a lot asking where he is, etc., thinking he died last month, thinking a coworker of his kidnapped and murdered him, etc. Weird stuff, but I think it will clear when the antibiotics kick in. I hope so, anyway!!

    Thanks for the link, Jon. Foustie's review is very appealing.

    I used up the last of my Iris Poudre sample, I have hoarded it for many, many years. My thinking was to use it up because I had a bottle being shipped to me. When I called FedEx & entered the door tag number, they said it had been delivered yesterday. What? Huh? So where is it?
    Apparently, it was left at my front door.

    Now, I'm scared! They gave me a confirmation # & said the driver would come by within 24 hours & show me where he left it.

    I need me something soothing to calm me down: Fleur de The Rose Bulgare (which I bought from 30roses) will do just fine.

    This shows exactly what I feel like right now.



    And a little bit of this....
