    Default SotD Thursday 14th February 2013, Valentine's Day ♥

    Hello all!
    Basenotes seems to be having some hiccups!

    I'm not a Valentine's Day kind of guy but I allowed myself to wear Amouage Lyric Man today



    Happy V-Day to those in love who celebrate.

    Happy Valentine's Day, all! To love and to be loved is a gift beyond compare.

    SOTD is Parfums de Marly Safanad: "...According to legend, the Queen of Sheba gave the wise King Solomon a thoroughbred mare named Safanad, whose name means 'the pure one'."

    This a beautiful, sweet orange blossom scent, voluptuous and rich.
    Notes include pear, orange, ylang ylang, iris, orange blossom, amber, sandalwood, vanilla

    Best to all.

    Happy Valentine's Day

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Afternoon All,

    Lucas - I'm not much of a Valentine's Day guy, either. Too cynical (too single, more like !). For those with romantic designs on the day, enjoy !

    Ungaro II for me.

    Quick story: I recently acquired a new pen pal in Scandinavia who, as chance would have it, is a BNer ! Or rather, she was active here a couple of years ago, but seems to now frequent another site. I won't say who it is, but on the off-chance she sees this, . Small world.

    Best to all.

    Well I was going to wear my Citizen Queen today in honor of Valentine's day, but my decant of Chergui arrived yesterday and I just HAD to try it.

    Ok, verdict, it's not the mystery sample that I'm trying to figure out from the other day, but it is indeed wonderful and warming. Just what I needed after a restless night of trying to sleep. I'm leaving on vacation in 2 days and my mind won't shut up with all that has to be done before then. Since I'm driving straight through, 16hours, I really need it to shut up and sleep. Maybe tonight.

    I do need your help though, my lovely BNers. If the sample is not Chergui, it's a chance it could be Memoir Woman. I compared the two and the Mystery Sample is much sweeter. I'm SO not good with notes or maybe I could figure it out. It is also more of a rosy dark color than the Chergui. Anyone familiar with Memoir? My decant of Lyric is coming today I think, but I'm pretty sure based on feed back that it's not Lyric.

    Have a Happy V-Day everyone!

    Oh, and after catching up on yesterdays thread, I have to say ... I love your husband Twolf! Don't anyone lose any of your voluptuousness, whether it be in spirit, in mind or in body! ... or in scent!

    I don't care about that "I'm not a Valentine's Day kind of guy/girl" nonsense. You're all sweethearts and I love you all.



    I have no idea what fragrance I'm going to wear today. It's very foggy this morning but it looks like the sun is trying to burn through it. I don't know what that has to do with it, other than framing my mood. I'll be back later after I've made up my mind. Love to everybody. xoxo

    Dr. G, I think that's cool.

    Happy Valentines Day!!!!

    We're recovering from "THE" cold of the season in our household, so nobody feels very kissy-face.

    SOTD is the only tuberose I love RP's FRACAS parfum.



    This notorious heavy hitter is a demure posey on my skin. Weird, but true.

    And for your enjoyment.......

    Evangeline, absolutely

    Elizrj, Amouage Memoir is fairly dry, strongly based on incense, and only slightly sweet. The color doesn't seem rosy dark to me; Chergui looks more like that. Memoir looks more dark yellow to me.

    I completely agree with your sentiments, tdem and lilybelle - all love is special and should be celebrated, not just romantic love ...that you love is far more important than whom. Also, I just adore these sweet, old-fashioned Valentines - that one's super-precious! I saved a bunch of mine from grade school and they're all in a box somewhere, probably in my parents' attic, but I'd love to go through them now.

    I Valentine's Day!

    Same here. If I were to offer a gift around this date, you could bet it wasn't Valentine's Day. A sure miss!

    Because I haven't received any roses from my sweetie yet, and based on Perfumed Lady's impression of it as "Rose Bathroom Spray" it should be a decent stand-in.

    The restaurant is booked, and we will be dining Italian this evening though she doesn't know it yet. Old romantic at heart ? - maybe, or maybe in fear of repercussions should I forget. I'll let others be the judge .



    Special Valentine hugs for voluptuous Wolfie - relieved and delighted that things are slowly improving.




    Enjoy your special day today, turquoisewater.

    Happy Birthday, turquoisewater I hope you have something doubly lovely planned for today.

    ((Twolf)), I'm glad things are looking up. May spring bring its joy to you and Mr. Twolf. It seems long overdue.

    lillybelle, I'm with Evangeline -- I *adore* those sweet, old-fashioned Valentine's Day cards. I remember how much I loved Valentine's Day as a kid, decorating the shoebox with the slit in the top for all those wonderful cards (and awesome heart candies!) Thank you for bringing back that rush of memory ((Hugs))

    I'm starting my annual florals quest by going back through the samples I already have. Today is Parfumerie Generale Drama Nuui, with notes of petit grain, absinthe, jasmine, spices, guaiac wood, sandalwood, musk. It's not a loud or lush jasmine at all. It's more airy, a little green, and a little sharp -- a different approach to florals for me. It's nice, but it's not going to be a love-match.

    Happy Valentine's Day to all, with an excerpt from my favorite love poem of all time:

    Let me not to the marriage of true minds
    Admit impediments. Love is not love
    Which alters when it alteration finds,
    Or bends with the remover to remove:
    O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
    That looks on tempests and is never shaken ...
    --Shakespeare, Sonnet 116

    ((((cello))) I know that feeling all too well. It gets better. As Quarry said, we cry together. I'll add, we love together, too.
