    This morning I had to go into my Management Office (for my new apartment) to talk to the Manager about the new A/C they're installing. He is Middle Eastern (his name is Abid) and I realized on my way out the door (after I'd applied a cloud of Traversee du Bosphere that I must have stunk up his office with the smell of his home country. I hope he liked it.

    It's the base notes that rub me the wrong way. They fade in and out, but overall they just give off a musky/sugared vibe that I find treacly and synthetic.

    Whitefluffy, I believe Surrender to Chance or Perfumed Court has samples of 1932.(not affiliated).

    I tried Iris Nobile edp on Wednesday for the first time. Today I went through a few dept stores asking for samples and finally got one. I'm really starting to get fond of iris note.

    Thank you, Kalli! But Basenotes is an amazing place and the sample of 1932 is already winging its way to me. YAY!!! Many, many thanks to cello!

    UPS dropped by in time and now I am surrounded by crisp, sparkly aldehydes. SOTA - Le Labo Aldehyde 44

    Best wishes to 30Rosebuds! I hope there is no tearing. That poor sweetie, may she recover quickly.

    Safe travels, Jon!

    Mike, I found my opinions were the same as yours re: TdB. "Treacly" describes it exactly for me. None of the beauty described by others on my poor skin.

    Lucas, thinking of you all day- anxiously awaiting! You must be worn out. Big hugs to you.

    Yay, Whitefluffy! Happy to hear the new Chanels arrived; I did see they're now doing free 2 day shipping on orders that large. Yes, they are still pushing Coco Noir. Just gave away I think my fourth sample. And last time I ordered, Chance was the perfume option. I'd be happy if they'd even offer the classics once in awhile! But yes, I was hoping for 1932 as well. Will suck it up and order one.

    Synced earlier in a Ropion: the stunning Carnal Flower. Out of sync now but so happy in 31 Rue Cambon. Happy Friday, all!

    EDIT:
    Whitefluffy, that's so funny, just saw your post! Congrats on the gorgeous A44! And on finally scoring some1932! Have a great weekend!

    Thank you, PerfumedLady, I am absolutely ecstatic. It's as beautiful as I remember and having my name on the bottle makes it that much more special .

    Lol, I found it pretty cool to have my name on a bottle at first, I must admit! By now, the novelty has worn off. I thought maybe you'd get your name spelled out in diamonds with the $$$$ Aldehyde44!

    I'm in SL La Fille de Berlin from a sample today (I mentioned my impressions in the thread about it). It's the last day of a busy week, but the next one is truly crazy.... I'll need a calming scent.

    30 Roses, I hope your daughter is okay!!

    Hello again!

    I see y'all have been buzzing about 1932 - what fun! I tell you, I just can't say enough good things about it, and I can also confirm my earlier impressions that this is much more of an iris perfume than jasmine, to my nose ...an "aldehydic, slightly woody floral-iris" may be more accurate, since it is, like many Chanels, an abstraction ...an elegant and refined, abstract iris bouquet. I don't even have a problem at all with longevity ...I'd say I get a good five hours out of it, at least. I smelled it all over my ballet clothes when I did laundry yesterday, and I'm sure this morning's application would still be lingering on me if I hadn't showered, but I had a sweaty run earlier (during which it re-bloomed quite beautifully, btw) so a shower was necessary, lol! At any rate, I'm quite interested in Wolfie's impressions also, as well as Whitefluffy's (stunning photo, btw!) I do hope it reveals its tender and graceful charms to you, as I really think it's something quite special.

    Okay then, I'm now in Cartier's So Pretty for the afternoon. Y'all have a good one!

    The knee immobilizer is in place and the poor kid has gone to lie down. Me, I'm scarfing down meringues and tea and vegging out online and then with a book I got from the library.

    We are expecting record warm (80+) temperatures today, but turning cool and rainy tomorrow. <shaking my head> weather in Kansas ...

    Thank you everyone for rooting for me! Unfortunately I won't know the result earlier than in a few days. The doctor said to give him a week to check those exams. Taking into consideration that previously it took him 2 weeks to correct the reasults will be really at the end of next week.

    But I'm having a feeling it will be fine. I'm praying for it being fine! I feel destroyed mentally and physically as well.

    Tomorrow I'm going to Wrocław to participate in perfume workshop about woody notes as part of my de-stressing.

    Bon Voyage Jon. Have a great trip.

    Lucas. Been tooting for you.

    Twolf, Ha! You like the Impossible Iris. Wonderful. Have you written your thoughts somewhere that I have missed? If so I would very much like to read your comments.

    Dzongkha today, for the synch.

    Well, have a wonderful weekend all. I'm working so I'll see you next week.

    and Quarry..."decantress"! Fabulous!

    Jon, bon voyage and have a lovely holiday. I hope you enjoyed your Chilean merlot -- and I hope you'll find more to enjoy in Oslo than Aquavit!

    Twolf, I echo Jon and Foustie's pleasure in learning that you've succumbed to the charms of Impossible Iris. I think we SotD'ers are getting close to a quorum in our enjoyment of II!

    Mike, I have to laugh -- TdB is one of only 3 LAPs that I like at all. Robin is wearing another. PerfumedLady, you nailed it with "treacly," but I guess in this case, "treacly" isn't a pejorative for me.

    Lucas, congratulations! I'm glad you feel better about this go-around. I'm now sending lots of hopes for contentment and relaxation your way. I know how difficult it can be to unwind after that kind of stress.

    30Roses, I'm so sorry to hear about rosebud. I did something quite similar to both of my knees in high school (subluxation and sprained ligaments but no tears). It HURTS, but ice is magic. I was icing 3-4 times a day for 20 minutes for the first couple of weeks after the injury. One of my problems was that my knees didn't track smoothly and my quadriceps muscles were too weak -- and my curvy hips really pulled on the alignment of my knees. I don't know what body type rosebud is, but if she tends toward curvy, you may want to look at a strengthening program for her quads. Which isn't always fun -- curvy hips plus athletic, muscular legs means never ever wearing skinny jeans. Sigh. But I digress. I'll be offering up wishes for no ligament tears.

    Roberto, I love the photo! Thanks for a great start to the thread!

    And finally, my dear Quarry. I must say, I admire your iron will. I am weak. So very weak. My bottle of Une Fleur de Cassie finally arrived, along with 5 lovely samples of other things I've been wanting to try. And what am I doing, right this second (besides typing, I mean)? I have all 5 samples at different places on my arms. And I'm twisting myself into knots trying to sniff them all properly. Because, you know, I couldn't just try 2 on. No, I had to do it all at once. C'est *ma* vie.

    I hope everyone has had a lovely Friday and that you finish it off in the ways you love most.

    I started in the day in Lutens Boxeuses, and now I'm finishing the day stinking of Dries Van Noten, Lys Mediterranee, Byredo La Tulipe, Arquiste Boutonniere No. 7, and Le Labo Neroli. I'm in heaven. Quarry and elizrj, I have no doubt we could stink up da place, no matter where da place might be!

    Hi! Got a sample of Mahora by Guerlain today, in the mail, so that is my SOTD. I enjoy it so far; my first and second impressions of it are completely different; I am interested to see how it will wear in the future. So far, an interesting and enjoyable scent. First sniffing: EIGHTIES!!! Second time: Sooo Guerlain. What I thought Terracotta might be like but wasn't. Terracotta's older, bolder, more daring sister. Or something.

    Well wishes and sweet fragrant dreams to all!
