Thread: SOTD Tuesday 12th March 2013
Good morning. Cold and sunny again after some heavy snow. I'm pleased that it has melted because I'm driving down to see the family for a couple of days.
Linfidele 1003 today.
Have a great day all.

Happy Birthday to ExtremeK and many happy returns of the day. I have been thinking about you as of late, what you are wearing and your fragrant aspirations. I was also thinking that we are just 3 hours away from NE and you guys are luckier to have some shopping/sniffing opportunities. *wink wink* And again, better days of early May -- when it is neither too hot nor too cold -- are coming, you know?
Ellen Tracy for me today. Peachy!
30R., yes, Mr.T used our snow-blower and dug a passage from the street -- oh yeah, over the hump, it is always a hump here -- for a small car that we park by the porch. The John Deere man cleaned most of the driveway, which is about 150 feet long. I shoveled the porch for 40 minutes this morning. We are fixing to have a swimming pool here come Friday with 54F in the forecast.
Happy Birthday ExtremeK and Scent-imental!
SotD is Trebol.
I'm pretending it's warmer than it is in Hermes Un Jardin sur de Nil.
Happy birthday ExtremeK!!
30R., what is Trebol?
Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan
Hello all. L'Occitane Notre Flore Iris.
Not on my fragrance wardrobe, but still on my wrist- just testing this scent's unisex/male suitability:
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea
Miss Balmain. Goes well with a black leather jacket.
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
Happy Birthday, ExtremeK and Scent-imental!
Wishing you both a very special day!

from a decant
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..."

Good morning everyone, scent of the day is ByKilian Forbidden Games out of my samples.
Happy Birthday to our lovely ExtremeK! Hope your day is wonderful! Am I right in thinking this is your first birthday as a new, free woman? A very special day indeed!
Also wishing Scent-imental the happiest of birthdays! Have a great day! Big hugs to both of our birthday girls!
Safe travels, Foustie! Enjoy your visit! So happy to hear you're pleased with the new bath; maybe there is hope for me after all!
Jon, you're so sweet! Thank you for the reassurance yesterday! You are quite right about my awful case of perfectionism, I'm afraid! Can you believe-right now I'm hung up on choosing the right shade of white paint? Who knew that could be so difficult? Certainly there are bigger problems in this world; I can't complain. Will figure it out eventually!
Trying to figure out a SotD, too. Was thinking Bulgari au thé vert for the gym but am liking Scentsucker's Un Jardin idea, also. Think I'll dig out my Apres la Mousson instead. And have been thinking about EA Green Tea lately, like Ken Russel, need to re-visit next time I'm at Kohl's.
The nose wants what it wants!
Thank you very much for the birthday wishes! My birthday present to myself was my first full bottle of Frederic Malle -- for my late-winter-nearly-spring birthday, I decided to go with Une Fleur de Cassie, that wonderfully skanky harbinger of prettier spring flowers and warmer days. I love it for its unabashed weird beauty.
Today, I'm giving a full wear to Ramon Monegal Entre Naranjos ... but it's not doing much for me so far, which is a shame. I had high hopes for this when I did the quick initial test.
PerfumedLady, you are absolutely correct!! I'm really very happy and so enjoying the new life. It's a huge relief. And, by the way, white *is* a very difficult color. I tend to avoid it if at all possible. Hang in there!

Wolfie, it's a little bottle I bought years ago and can't find anywhere any more so I'm ekeing it out.
"Trébol" means clover. Does it smell of clover? Not really...more of a light green floral scent.
I'm off to take Mom to PT.

Afternoon all, & Many Happy Returns to ExtremeK & Scent-imental!
Congrats ExtremeK on your first Malle FB; it is a special moment, isn't it? l think l need to try Une Fleur de Cassie, too...
l'm *almost* scent twins with (flanking?) sfmedusa today in Sheer Obsession. The sun is out now but we still have biting winds here.

Happy birthday, ExtremeK!
We are facing a bout of wintery white gradually developping over the course of the week. So sick of it this year.
Best to all!
Cake and perfume and hugs and kisses and laughs.
I wish all of the best of them for you.
Happy Birthday to you, too, Scent-imental. Don't know ya, but I bet I'd like ya.
I'd be more than tempted by a Chicago meet-up.
