    Default SotD: Friday 22nd February 2013

    Good morning all !. Feeling upbeat after a long lie-in, and ready for some afternoon imbibing


    SotD is Eau de Lalique.





    Forgot to synch, but seem to have inadvertently done so anyway with this uplifting beauty. A classic example of why I flatly refuse to seasonalise scents - this takes on a whole new effervescence in colder weather.


    Happy Birthday Robin-in-FL.

    Morning All,

    Happy Birthday, Robin ! Many fragrant returns to you.

    Not quite enjoying a relaxing day like Jon, but working from home which is quite comfortable.
    Splashed some vintage 'Y' (EdT) on my arm earlier to test.
    Off to the ballet tonight and will likely wear Bois des Iles (EdT).

    Have a great Friday, gang.

    Hi you guys. I've missed you! Is eveyone OK? I hope so. Well, we are still in a right old guddle at the new house but I'm not embarassed to admit that I have run out of steam, so I'm treating myself to a cosy afternoon with Basenotes. It is so nice to be back.

    My comfort blanket scent for the synch, hmmm, well there are lots that fit that purpose. I will go with Bois Des Iles this evening.

    I'm in Jean Patou Sublime ...such a dazzling fragrance, and for some reason I neglect it. I suppose I'll have to do something about that!

    Yay, so happy to see you, Foustie! I've been missing my sister-in-l'eau! About time you took a break; can't get it all done overnight, you know. I'm sure the new home is looking beautiful! Enjoy your afternoon!

    Jon, you sound so chipper; trying to peel my eyes open and catch up to you! Enjoy your long weekend!

    Have fun at the ballet tonight, G.!

    My comfort blankie is of course Shalimar and the snowy, icy weather makes me need my blankie even more. No early spring here yet (thanks a lot, groundhog), Indiana is no place for members of Camp Bloomers.

    I'm wearing Ma Griffe today. I'll get cozied up in a blankie scent later tonight (Yes, Mike, that counts as three!). It was a sleety morning, tiny pellets pinging around like hail actually, but now it seems to have passed us by without the major nasty weather people were expecting. Food shopping this morning was a breeze. The stores were practically empty (of people, that is) because everybody ran riot yesterday madly loading up for a big freeze.

    Hello, Foustie!

    Thanks, I certainly will ! - starting as I mean to carry on with a glass of sauvignon blanc, and an accompanying bowl of chilli stuffed olives. G is at the ballet, so I nominate Larimar and Cello as evening vino triplets.

    That is a very familiar looking picture, Jon. We drove through there once or twice . We are planning to go camping there sometimes this year.

    Happy Birthday, Robin!

    I am jealous of you, gandhajala, I haven't went to ballet in many, many years. I guess that's the price we have to pay living near alleged UFO crash sites.

    Jon, my goodness you post some amazing photos. Lovely! I'm hoping to join you in wine o'clock later today after a workout. I think I'll finish work early today

    Happy Birthday, Robin! I'm only 2 years behind you (in short order, next month), and I agree: now that I'm through the 2.5 year split saga, I'm really enjoying this age. It's all easier, somehow

    (((Whitefluffy))), I hope today's a better day for you, despite all the studying. When are your exams finished?

    I'll synch up later, but this morning I'm sampling Histoires de Parfums 1826 (Eugenie de Montijo) with notes of bergamot, tangerine, white flowers, violet, cinnamon, ginger, patchouli, amber, incense, blond woods, white musk, and vanilla.

    For something advertised as white florals-heavy, this one is just a patchouli bomb on me and very little else. I do get the slightest trace of florals and musk, but only when I pull back a bit and stop concentrating on sniffing. Not bad but not what I'm looking for.

    Good evening.

    By chance in synch with the note that seems to have become my comfort scent in every occasion: I started the day with Etro Patchouly, then went sampling again Mazzolari Patchouli- yes, it's love and yes, it's extremely comforting, a patch and an amber all in one!

    Have a nice evening

    I've been a little under the weather for the last several days and not wearing scents. Jumping back in with one of my comfort scents, Love's True Bluish Light, which also means I'm in synch with today's "comfort blanket scent" theme.

    Happy birthday, Robin!

    For once l'm in synch with lmperial Opoponax. l'm in need of comfort because l just got home to find my gas boiler has broken down (again) on this cold winter's night. Fortunately l've got a chap coming to look at it in the morning, God bless British Gas Homecare! And there'll be two blankets on top of the duvet tonight. Brrrrrrr!

    Oooh, Teardrop! Stay warm! B-belle and I once went through that. The oil delivery didn't come and we ran out of heating oil. It got pretty nippy in the house before the oil company got there to replenish. That was in our old house. The oil companies were required by law to come right away, or within a few hours anyway. He was furious but I wasn't angry, I just piled on a LOT of blankets until the heat was back on. It sure makes you appreciate all the amenties we take for granted.

    I'm sampling La Nuit by Paco Rabanne this afternoon. This is wonderful fragrance.

    Thanks lilybelle! This is the third time this has happened in the last year. l keep thinking l should buy a plug-in electric heater for these situations, but l also keep hoping it won't happen again! Still, l've got a hot water bottle, & l've got pretty expert at knowing how many kettles-worth of boiled water l'll need to have a wash. lt certainly does make one appreciate all the amenities we do have. Let's hope they can fix it once & for all this time.
