    Exclamation SotD Tuesday, March 19, 2013

    Good morning everyone!

    It's a mess out there-- snow, sleet, I can hear ice needles now and it's not done yet. They haven't cancelled/delayed school yet but I expect the automated call any moment. I'll be clearing the snow alone today while daughter hobbles around with her knee immobilizer indoors.

    Edit: Only a 90 minute delay. Just as well-- they kids have had too many snow days already this year.

    My SotD (not applied as yet-- hubby is still asleep) is Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare because, hey, spring is just around the corner, snow and ice notwithstanding!

    Stay safe, everyone who is dealing with this storm-- the roads must be treacherous.

    What are you all wearing?

    Morning All,

    Thankfully no snow here (plenty of grey clouds about, though).

    Eau de Patou
    today. Out tonight to celebrate the persian New Year with some persian friends. There's a tradition of jumping over a fire today also, but I think we might skip that.

    All the best to everyone.

    Good morning my lovelies!

    I keep thinking "cucumbers" when I wear this. Still, it's nice and fresh and I'll be warring more of it when we FINALLY get some warm weather.

    Good morning all !. Go carefully 30R - conditions sound really treacherous over there.


    SotD is Ghost Deep Night.





    Jenny bought this in duty free yesterday and I applied cautiously as I am lounging at home. In all honesty though, I see no good reason why I couldn't wear this sparingly when out and about - it's pretty unisex to my nose (good value for money too). As regards the crescent moon bottle, the jury is out. Can't quite make up my mind whether it is appealing and unique or whether it sucks big time. Opinions welcome .

    Morning all!

    Today started with a quite eerie sea fog, which is just now starting to lift.

    SOTD is Flower Market by Lush; one of my "damp spring day" favourites.

    30R, stay warm and safe. It sleeted all night long here, but thankfully the temps warmed up enough this morning that it (mostly) melted away.

    Good morning, everyone -

    I'm craving peonies thanks to 30R's latest sample pass, so I'm in Pivoine Rose by Ava Luxe, the most luscious and authentic peony perfume I know.

    Y'all have a great day!

    Good afternoon everyone. Welcome home to our travellers.

    Well, day off today so working in/on the house. The bracing SMN Acqua Di Sicilia to keep me going!

    There is a fog on the bay here, and can see a ghostly looking city across the water, birds wheeling in the mist...Very lovely. Also the radio had good music on the way in, and I am enjoying the Neil Morris City Rain more than I expected to, was very indecisive about smell this morning but it fits perfectly. Worked out, eating a delightful museli and going to start working now. Hopefully no shoe yet to drop, the morning has been gorgeous and enjoyable; I don't usually feel like such a 'morning person' but I can understand it after this one.

    The snow is coming down heavily here, and it looks like it's not going to let up for a week or so. Why oh whyyyyy do I live in the north?

    But, Oh JOY! My samples/decants came yesterday from STC. Mystery sample solved, it definitely is Memoir Woman, although somehow the old one turned rose colored over the course of setting out for a year. The new sample is definitely a light amber/yellow. But they both smell heavenly. It's warm and dense and luxurious, and I'm enjoying it on a day when winter won't go away. I was planning on eventually treating myself to a full bottle when I'm on vacation in Europe in May. But I wonder if by then I'll be longing for sheer and cool.

    Stay warm 30R!!

    Good morning all.
    LadyM, I hope you enjoyed your stay in our fair desert It is next door to me, well, one state over.

    I spent the evening going through my samples, and found about 10 iris samples that either have not been sniffed, or have not had their fair share of exploration. Shame on me, the iris freak!!!

    So out come the iris frags! Sampling Huitieme Art Naiviris today, a first wear.

    PL, we are living in the Winter Wonderland just to let everyone wonder why we do so, to answer your question, rhetorical or otherwise. Hard to imagine that the real spring starts tomorrow and Easter is just 11 days away, ah?

    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..."

    Stay warm? I'm radiating heat, having just shoveled a driveway full of ice and slush. Whew! Feels good to sit down and drink something cold. I can't believe we're expecting another storm on Monday. This is the winter that won't quit.

    Evangeline, why don't you join our Peoneve sample pass?

    Today is a sad day. This morning my beloved dog passed away, after fifteen years of living with my family. I was 8 when we gave her home and love. Now I'm 23 and she's not here anymore today. As I write this I cry a sea of tears, hoping she went to a Dog Heaven!

    In Her memory I'm posting Her picture from Christmas Eve 2012.

    lucasai, that's so sad I'm sure you're feeling horrible ((bear hugs))
    30 Roses - be careful shoveling that snow. We don't need another of you bumped/bruised.
    No snow here - but lot's of rain which only intensifies the humidity/dampness in the air. I bought some of those Damp Rid buckets for the interior closets in my new apartment, so that at least they don't smell musty anymore (this place doesn't have central a/c and sometimes when the doors are closed they smell like tombs when you open the door). When the rain stops it just looks grey and downcast. Should have worn Mitsouko, instead I'm in:

    lucasai, I was about to post when I say Scentsucker's post.

    Yes, all dogs go to heaven because they are all pure and loving, trusting in their owners to be as good and kind as they are. And don't you think you and your family provided that? I imagine you did, and should be content with that knowledge. But you are certainly allowed to cry and be sad. They are family. I'm sorry, lucasai. Take care of your fragile self today.

    Oh, no Lucas, I am so sorry! She was such a beautiful little thing; still remember the story of your dad finding her and bringing her home to your loving family. What a sad day indeed, I'm tearing up right along with you. You gave her a long and happy life, this will help ease the pain eventually. But I know how awful today feels to you, it will be hard for awhile. Lots of us here have lost beloved furry family members; you chose the right place to share. cello is absolutely right, I believe. I know she had a wonderful life; she was your little princess! Big, tight hugs to you, am just so sorry and sad.

    Amouage Gold for me today. Hugs to everyone.
