    Default SotD: Sunday 10th February 2013

    Good morning all !. SotD is Traversee du Bosphore.








    Was planning on road testing the new camera further today, but the gloom and drizzle has put a spanner in the works. Visited the London Wetland Centre yesterday and managed a few reasonable snaps before the dreich closed in.
















    Wishing everyone a great Sunday, and thinking of those caught up in the arctic conditions.

    Ah, the ducks made me smile!

    No scent as yet, but I plan to put something on before going out to tackle the mess again. The plow has been by. I think I'll wear a cozy scent while braving the cold: Mandorlo di Sicilia.

    Morning all!

    Jon, l wonder what that pair of ducks are saying to each other?

    Roses, please be careful shovelling all that snow, that kind of hard labour can play havoc with your blood pressure.
    Good wishes to everyone coping with the blizzards; stay safe & warm.

    Pouring with rain here, l'm preparing for a soggy walk to work, with the soothing rosey incense of Ghost.

    Have a good Sunday everyone!

    I'm a bit sleepy (got home a wee bit late last night...) so I'm off to breakfast and then a mid-day Pool Party in Ft. Lauderdale with BBQ, drag queens and a DJ.

    Started the day in a crisp cold shower with Casswell Massey English Lavender soap & continued the theme with:

    Oxford & Cambridge by Czech & Speake (from a decant, thanks petruccijc!)



    Isn't that bottle just a beauty. The sharp mint & medicinal lavender combination is like smelling salts to my slumber - puts a little spring in my step.

    Good afternoon.

    The sun shines, but there's a forecast of heavy snow from tonight on...

    SotD is Myrrhiad, plus some new Gorilla perfume fragrances I tested on wrists in my local Lush shop- one (Devil's nightcap) is totally uninteresting to me, the other (The Voice of reason)- a smoky tobacco accord- is not bad at all... and I like the retro tiny bottles!

    Happy Sunday to all of you!

    Good morning everyone!

    We're continuing on with the Mardi Gras celebrations, starting off with a big ol' jazz brunch before taking in a few of today's parades, including this evening's main event, Bacchus - that's a good one!


    I'm feeling quite festive in my glorious Chamade, vintage-70s parfum and edc. Y'all have a wonderful day!

    Teardrop, good suggestion about Shalimar vintage edt. Haven't tried it, but vin edt Jicky is my favorite version of that Guerlain. It all depends on what crosses my path, purchase-wise. Yester's current edp was hugging me all evening. Funny how I just recently started reacting to Shalimar. What changed within me? Who knows? Just happy for the experience.

    Those ducks have remarkable markings. Of course, they're entirely new creatures to this American. Even their proportions are noticably diff from the ducks I know. Congrats on the addition of the new toy, Jon. Hope it brings all of us interesting scenes.

    30Roses, a photo is worth a thousand groans. Wish I could assist you. I have a certain mania for shoveling/digging. It's ebbing in my old age, but still have the compulsion, like the dog who can't resist chasing a frisbee.

    Perfume-wise I have had a changeable day.
    I started the morning off gently with Clarins
    Eau Ressourcante, after a bath then, when that wore
    off, I changed to Bulgari Omnia, which has mediocre staying power.
    Now I am about to test Sa Majeste la Rose (sent to me by a very
    generous member of POL.)
    Take care my fragrant friends and enjoy your Sunday evening.

    Hello all. Hope you have all had a marvellous day. I woke early, read a while then dozed off again. I finally awoke at 1.30pm! I hang my head in shame but the snow/rain/snow/rain weather wouldn't have encouraged me to brave outside. So I treated myself to a home pamper and topped off the L'Occitane Amande products with Onda from a decant. Close up it's a warm rosy floral from 18 inches away it's a strange, green, otherworldly thing and smells of damp cellers with algae stripes on the world.

    Luv the duckies, Jon. Brunched at Jack's Deli, 2 cheese blintzes w/sour cream and a side of nova lox no bagel. What to wear? Ralph Hot by Ralph Lauren, the brunchy gourmand. Good Sunday to all (unless it's already Moday where you are, then, Good Monday!).

    Thank you Quarry and all you other lovelies who sent us your good wishes! Something very sweet did happen- my oldest Goddaughter became engaged yesterday, on our anniversary! This boy says he's marrying the most beautiful girl in the world and his best friend. Obviously, he's on my good side already!

    And also, Quarry, your Shalimar adventures are making me very happy! You're falling for it, I can tell! One of my longtime true perfume loves.

    Welcome, Sapfir!

    Sampling violets: Caron Aimez Moi and also doing a comparison of L'Heure de Nuit with original L'HB. Have to say I prefer L'HdN. The orange blossom in L'Heure Bleu always has just about knocked me down.

    With all that Ubar talk lately, I just had to wash dishes and dig into some really boring books while enveloped in it's majesty. Quite distracting, to say the least.

    The snow is finally cleared thanks to the kindness of our young neighbor, who let us use his extra gasoline and came over to shovel as well.

    The gasoline enabled me to use the snowblower-- with the right tire off the rim, struggling mightily the whole while to keep the snowblower going straight, alternately lifting the machine with my left arm while maneuvering the tire with my right foot. I am going to be feeling this later.

    And the borrowed muscle power...well, we would not be nearly done without it. Of course, the plow will come by again and we will have to go out and shovel again but so be it. Hubby is out buying more gasoline. We gave up on clearing the front door and walk (we use our side door mostly anyway.)

    It's supposed to get into the 40s this week so that will help melt some of it.
