    Default SOTD Monday, March 25, 2013

    Good morning. Anyone having a slow start?

    Here's one way to begin and it is BODACIOUS. I love it! Stunning stuff. Thank you Genie Jeanie for this introduction.

    I'm still in bed, wrecked from weekend partying!

    I'll join you schilling: I'm breaking open my big bottle of Lyric right now. It'll get me to comb my hair. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Morning All,

    No such luxury of lying in bed for me. Up with the larks (well, my newly resident song thrush actually).

    Tabac Blond extrait to get the week started.
    Have a lovely Monday, folks.

    Thanks again, Jon!

    I'm off to a busy morning wearing L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger. Dental appointment, then an interview to participate in Literacy Volunteers.

    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..."

    Hello everyone -

    I'm in 1932. Y'all have a great day!




    Here's to 30 Roses and her mighty milestone!

    Schilling, Scentsucker - my my, aren't you two smellin' outrageously gorgeous today?! I usually don't save any of my perfumes for special occasions, but for everyday, Lyric somehow just feels so decadent and lavish ...hehe, that actually sounds like a better reason to wear it frequently.

    'morning all.

    Testing two of a funny fragrances range I was given samples yesterday at Esxence: O.P.S.O (standing for Officine Produzione Sostanze Odorose- kind of Factory for the production of Smelling Materials-a house based in Parma, a town in Northern Italy http://www.opsoprofumi.com/).
    On left wrist Baiana- a rather interesting peppery, milky, creamy sandalwood; on right wrist Dalila- a nice, well done orange blossoms and white flowers.
    Nothing to scream about, though, as everything else I tested at Esxence...

    Good afternoon. I've drained my sample of La Fille de Berlin today. Jammy roses... I think I'll give it a pass. The painting by Rothko represents pretty much how I feel about this fume - ambivalent.mark-rothko-white-center-yellow-pink-and-lavender-on-rose-1348837984_b.jpg

    I chose Paco Rabanne Black XS l'Elixir this morning.
    A warm, peppery rose scent. I would love to layer this with
    Sa Majeste la Rose and may well try that combo tomorrow.

    Yes, luxuriously so,as I don't start work till later.

    Andrea Pregoni's Secraction today. Forget all the performance around it. This is a beautiful fragrance, a lovely satisfying wear.

    Good morning, everyone And congrats, 30Roses, on #10,000! Nicely done!

    Well, I've done it. I've gone and fallen for a discontinued fragrance -- AFTER it was discontinued, but apparently a certain online fragrance shop in California still has bottles available. So I'd better snap one up while I can:

    Comme des Garcons Series 1: Leaves -- Lily

    Without ever having smelled Diorissimo, this is *my* reference LOTV. It smells just like the protected area of the garden where my mom grew them when I was growing up. Simple, green, and lovely.

    Happy 10K, 30Roses.
    ExtremeK - that CdG lily is true-to-life, isn't it? I struggle with lily notes (many of them sort of turn my stomach) however lily-of-the-valley doesn't. Strange.

    Hello everyone~
    I'm new here as you an see, and to the world of perfumes as well... Most of what I have was given to me by others, or bought on blind buys, so the only two perfumes I end up actually using on a daily basis are the D&G Light blue and the Jill Stuart White Floral... Today I chose the D&G Light Blue

    I'm 18, first year in college- Have any of you ever went through this phase where you want to try everything, but don't have the resources to be able to, and end up using just one fragrance every day for a long period of time?

    Congrats 30R!! Wow, 10k!

    Welcome chchristyen! I can very much identify. I did a lot of spritzing at perfume counters. The only problem was that we only got designer fragrances, so I didn't even know about this HUGE world of perfume out there. Now I identify as well because there are too many perfumes to try even if I had endless funds.

    There are still lots of ways to try perfumes. I ask kind sales associates for samples at perfume counters. I find that many of them are able and willing to help me when they see that I'm passionate about fragrance and asking a million questions. If they are passionate about their job as well, they want you to experience the scent. If they are apathetic and will not give out any samples, I move on.

    I also buy samples online from Surrender to Chance, there are many other sites as well. The Perfumed Court, Lucky Scent, aedes de venustas. You can also buy decants, some are sold here on the Forums in the marketplace, some at PoshPeasant, and various other places. Plus often, the wonderful ladies here are doing sample passes so everyone can share their impressions.

    I really really recommend sampling first and foremost. I blind bought a few bottles that I probably wouldn't buy now. Now I have a rule that I have to empty the sample, then empty a decant, and if I still love it, then it's a full-bottle contender.

    Welcome Welcome, and enjoy the experience of exploration.
