    Default SotD: Sunday 17th February 2013

    Good morning all !. Glorious day here - off to local beauty spot Dunstable Downs with the binoculars. Should be plenty of paragliding going on, not to mention buzzards, kites (feathered and tethered varieties) and deer roaming the wooded areas. Traditional pub lunch to follow ....



    SotD is Ramon Monegal Impossible Iris.









    Wishing everyone a relaxing Sunday.

    Enjoy your day Jon. Sounds wonderful and your photos are
    delightful too.

    It's a beautiful morning here. The birds are singing loudly and our squirrel
    troupe are skitting around the garden.

    Comme Une Evidence by Yves Rocher feels suitably spring-like.

    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..."

    Hello everyone! I was delighted to discover that I was scent twins with the impeccable Gandhajala and sharing the house with so many of you yesterday. It's a pleasure to be in such rarefied company, truly. (((((BNers)))))

    SOTD is Gaultier Classique eau de parfum.

    Wish you all a lovely Sunday.

    Afternoon, all!

    lt's a beautiful day here too; blue skies, fluffy white clouds, a light breeze & birds a-singing. Spring is definitely in the air.

    l'm sampling S-ex by S-Perfumes, but it's not living up to its name so far.

    Have a lovely Sunday, everyone!

    Hello everyone!

    My day started with adrenaline rush. When drinking my first cup of coffee I got email from E-bay notifying me of TDC Jasmin de Nuit for sale. Upon close examination of the listing it turned out to be original jasmine heavy formula for an amazing price. I had called my inner Ebay ninja and snatched it right away. Now I can relax and enjoy my coffee in peace knowing that I have one more bottle of this gorgeous perfume! The adrenaline is still coursing through my veins...

    I started this morning in Annick Goutal Songes

    Good morning, everyone -

    It's a beautiful day here as well, crisp and bright, and I'm wearing Cristalle Eau Verte, also beautiful, crisp and bright. I'm excited to have the rare privilege of playing tennis with my husband this morning, a once-in-a-blue-moon event for Tony ...although somewhat new to the sport, he's quite good and he really wants to win, so this is always lots of fun!

    Y'all have a wonderful day!



    Whitefluffy - you smell incredible! Songes is one of my very favorite florals in the whole wide world.

    It's a sunny but cold morning, sufficiently cold for me to be wearing Ambre Narguile. It's certainly yummy!

    Good morning, lovelies. I'm wearing some Bal à Versailles vintage edc. Today it is orange blossomy, rosy, incensey and lightly, sweetly musky. Later, I'm planning to spend some time with one of my new samples, but I haven't decided which one yet. Iris, iris everywhere! With iris on my mind lately, I'm running into it everywhere I go - virtually that is. Isn't it funny how it works like that?

    Well the cold weather (well...cold for us...50's & 60's) stayed around but the sun came out to play and it's nice & windy so the combination is quite beautiful. I am sitting here thinking about going out on the deck in the backyard to get some sun instead of being cooped up here in this house. Made a big breakfast for myself and now I'm sipping on some iced chai / almond milk. I see lot's of relaxing things in my future today. Bear Hugs to all that need them.

    Oh & before I forget - Jon and Lilybelle, I found my Impossible Iris sample yesterday afternoon and wore it all day when I washed the car and got a haircut. I don't like it. It's got an annoying detergent note in it that ruins it for me. No, no, no.

    This morning I am scentless right now but I'll probably reach for something cuddly, spicy & oriental...maybe one of my Slumberhouse samples? Will post later.

    30Roses, hang in there. I'm crossing my fingers that the weather sorts itself out for New England soon.

    Whitefluffy, Evangeline's right -- I love Songes, too. I'm saving it until it gets a bit warmer here, though.

    I'm wearing Chergui today. It's such a chameleon on me -- in the winter, it's all tobacco and honey. In the summer, it's all hay and spice.

    Woo hoo! Twinned with Larimar!

    Rummaging through the samples this evening - Creed Virgin Island Water.








    Pretty much the only Creed I haven't tried, mainly due to the fact that I usually detest coconut, but this has turned out to be a real surprise. Ethereal saline breeze interspersed with lime, rum, and a delicate coconut accord that is not only bearable, but actually rather pleasant. I seem to recall Teardrop being rather enamoured with this and my appreciation steadily grows. FBW ? - cogitation required, but just maybe.

    Oh, no Mike! I've been loving my II decant but I haven't noticed the detergent. I think it would bother me, too. Will need to pay close attention as I finish this decant.

    I'm in my (comparatively) cheapie iris today, Infusion d'Iris EDT. For Lilybelle and anyone else with iris curiosity, EDT is the most green floral version. Not as rich and deep as Absolue (another version of which I'd also gladly take a bottle!), not as incense heavy as EDP. EDT is very springy and most resembles actual iris blossoms rather than the rhizomes, probably achieved with the additional violet and galbanum. Very pretty and yes, inoffensive but doesn't bore me in the least.

    Have a great Sunday, everyone!

    Jon, you recall correctly, l am indeed enamoured with VIW! I own a big bottle, but only tend to wear it in warmer weather, when l find it lasts much longer. And now, because of your pic, l am longing for summer. That is my ideal spot, right there!

    PerfumedLady, the edt version does sound nice! Not boring at all. I enjoy green floral spring-like fragrances. I can see I'm going to have to sample all of the versions. Mike, I didn't get detergent per se in Impossible Iris yesterday, but I kept thinking that it would be a lovely scent for bath products - soap, gel, lotion. So I think I get what you're saying.
