    Default SOTD Thursday, March 14

    Hello everyone and thank you for all your lovely anniversary wishes! John and I enjoyed a cozy dinner at home last night.

    Morning All,

    Jon - I was really sorry to hear yesterday that 'your' place on the Isles of Scilly has gone under. I really feel for those who are losing their jobs, too.

    One thing and another kept me up till the wee small hours, so I'm a bit scattered today. Weirdly, went with a sample of Molecule 01. There's something that keeps drawing me back to it...

    Have a great Thursday, gang.

    Good morning. Retrieved a package from the Post Office, chock full of wonderful fragrance-related goodies and went overboard last night: Jo Malone Red Roses+YSL Paris Premieres Roses+Chanel 1932. Many many thanks to a kind BN friend, and honestly -- I do not know what I woulda, coulda and shoulda done without the whole community.

    A friend stopped by and shared our supper -- was first time eating couscous for him, he said not the last time either (mind you, most men our age in this area are habitual and non-adventurous eaters: potatoes, meat and bread type, skip the veggies please, you all know them LOL).

    Today I am wearing the new(er) Lancome La Vie est Belle -- another yet pleasant variation on Euphoria/John Varvatos/Coco Mademoiselle theme, not bad at all.

    Happy Birthday to dear ((Baldufita)), just in case you peek in ...but you'd better say "hello" if you do! I hope you've been very well and having a fabulous time, especially today.

    Well G, you and I agree about the Molecule One. It is just a great smell, haunting, ghostly, woody, Iris-y. I can't help but like it too.

    Jon, sorry to hear your bad news yesterday. You sounded really down in the dumps.

    Dunno today. This and that.

    Good morning and happy Pi day to everyone. Somewhat appropriately scented in Mure et Musc Extreme, I sure missed this while I didn't have it. I am not a scent monogamist (obviously) but if I were, well, poly I guess, this is one of my regulars. It's just such a good balance and safe for work.

    Happy Thursday all.

    Quarry, I loved reading your post last night, dreaming of England. I watch all those programs too, dreaming of a day I could relocate to somewhere exotic, warm, exciting, instead of dreary winter skies for months upon months. I also wish I had the funds to just travel as I desired. No way should I complain, since I do have a company trip down the Blue Danube in May. But I so long to see London, Paris, Tuscany, Rome, Egypt, China, I could go on and on. I guess I will need to start playing the lottery

    My scent today is Kelly Calèche by Hermès. I haven't worn it in quite a while and right now it's at the stage where you wonder "hmmm, why did I need a full bottle rather than just a decant/sample".

    Twolf, any thoughts on the 1932? I really like it as an easy wear scent. It will be a spring and summer staple I think.

    Trying to hurry spring along with Caron Fleurs de Rocaille. This wasn't love at first sniff—florals seldom are for me—but three days in I am blissed out by it's springy vibe. Lots of muguet to this nose.

    I suppose we just have to be philosophical under the current economic climate and accept that these things will happen. I have spoken with one or two friends there already and they have other irons in the fire, so there is some hope for a a potential silver lining.

    Got COLD again last night / this morning. Had to meet Comcast at my new place, 1st thing in the morning, to install internet (so I can go on BN when I am home!) and I had the incorrect modem/router (damnit!) but we came up with a resolution and I have internet tonight. Yay!

    Jon, I'm in love with Spanish and Chilean wines right now -- grenaches (as a varietal and not a blend), tempranillos, and carmeneres .... Yum! What do you have planned for wine o'clock tomorrow? Also, I'm hoping we see a few photos from your trip to NZ!

    G, my significant other just purchased a full bottle of Molecule 01 even though he can't smell it when he wears it, other than a faint whiff every now and then. I, however, nearly swoon whenever he wears it. So I can confidently say YOU SMELL MAHVELOUS, DAHLING!

    Twolf, I suspect I'd eat anything you chose to put in front of me. How do you prefer flavor couscous? Do you add any vegetables to it?

    ((((((Quarry)))))) [translation: massively HUGE hugs!] Thank you so much for your post last night about England (and the lovely birthday wishes the day before ) Now you (and elizrj!) have gone and put me in a traveling state of mind! I think my first-ever trip to Paris will have to wait until next year as I wrap up the last of the financial consequences of my divorce and house sale. But there are plenty of options here at home, and I may just look into a few of them. (Door County, Wisconsin is on my list, btw)

    Lucas, you have my best wishes for calmness, clear thinking, easy recollection, and -- most of all -- confidence! Test well. You can do this!

    Dentists are no fun, K. Glad to hear the implant is done. Alien is the only TM scent I find kind of wearable.

    I picked up an awesome smelling candle. Tobacco scented, smells just like a smoke pipe. Never seen a tobacco candle. And it's not weak either.

    Elizrj, ExtremeK, wouldn't we just take Europe by storm? Heck, we could stink up Door County pretty good.

    Lucas, we are again pulling for you, although you deserve all the credit for your accomplishments.

    Glad you're feeling whole, Kiliwia.

    Grape minds think alike, eh, Jon? You are perpetually cute.

    Mike, you're making me nostalgic for the smell of the first-generation home-improvement stores with real lumber yards and oil-based paints. Today's stores don't provide the best olfactory education. Cedar, pine, oak, linseed oil -- real perfume.

    We're really earning our spring this year, aren't we? I'm helping the season along with L'eau de Tarocco by Diptyque. Weak but oh so fun. Orange is so cheery.

    cello -- my impressions of 1932 are sort of jumbled, but it is LOVE at first sniff. I will give it a full wearing tomorrow, OK?

    Meantime, I find Ramon Monegal Impossible Iris irresitible as it has the sweetness many realistic iris fragrances lack and is void of a variety of musk I can't stomach (like in Prada Infusions d'Iris). I do not know about the correlation between the price and longevity yet, but I will definitely be looking for a large decant to wear in the summer.
