    Default SOTD - Thursday 28th March, 2013

    Morning all!

    l'm wearing Carolina Herrera today, from the back of the wardrobe, & further affirming my membership of the bombastic perfumes fan club!

    l'm off into town for a little shopping, maybe some sniffing, & then a bite to eat with my bf.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Good afternoon! I'm in Portrait of a Lady today... but then Baiser Vole came through the door... what to do?! POAL is so strong it just won't go away! Never mind. Baiser Vole could wait. I wonder if you could guess who this is? Hint: he was an English photographer. cecil beaton dressed as a woman for a play.jpg

    Afternoon All,

    Good start to the day: I schlepped in to work only to find it closed for Easter (!). Guess I should read those circular emails...
    So, working from home instead.
    SotD is Habit Rouge EdT (from a sample). Talk about a 180. Once upon a time, I loathed this. Now I'm seriously considering a bottle. That's what I love about this hobby.
    Wishing everyone a great day.

    Ps: Lady M: Cecil Beaton ? ( I cheated by hovering my mouse over the photo).

    Dr. G, I think the office being closed is a clue that you DO NOT have to work today Go out and play!

    From the back of the wardrobe challenge, I've pulled out Acqua di Parma's Magnolia Nobile. The last time I wore this, I got an offputting note that turned me from it for a very long time. We will try again today.

    Datura Blanche today. This is the only 'floral' perfume my daughter #2 likes, at least out of the things I have.

    That's how I'd interpret it too, cello. It's good, solid advice g - you should take it.

    Really?? I had no idea! Once you introduced me to it I was so instantly and completely smitten ...I suppose I just assumed you loved it, too! Well, maybe today's a good day for a reintroduction - perhaps you'll really hit it off this time.

    Good morning everyone!

    Pulled Citizen Queen from the back of my wardrobe. This was my first real niche buy. Something about it is just perfect today.

    I agree with everyone else g, no work for you! Enjoy your break Lucasi, I keep forgetting Easter Sunday is this weekend. Don't forget to take care of yourself 30R, while you are so busy taking care of everyone else.

    Hehe, thank you Cello, Mrs.E and Elizrj.
    I'm fortunate to really enjoy what I do (most of the time), so I'm happy to work a little at home today. Will definitely take Monday off, though.

    THIS, 30Roses

    Enjoy your much-deserved break, Lucas: laze, lounge, loaf, and lolly-gag to your heart's content!

    Oh, easyfish, the memories of teenage crushes that you're bringing back in that vintage Z-14.... Sigh

    I can't stop smiling today. It seems spring is finally here, and I wore a spring jacket (no more winter coats!) to the office for the first time this year -- bright coral and SO CUTE!!

    Obviously, this smiley state of affairs required an equally happy-inducing fragrance, so I chose the orange blossom from my OB/Neroli mini-quest that utterly knocked me out: Houbigant Oranger en Fleurs! The nutmeg and musk underpinnings of this one remind me of the musky effect in the equally lovely Songes.

    Disclaimer: I just ordered a sample of LAP Seville a L'Aube at the urging of many, so I'll hold off on making any final decisions, but the Houbigant is too fabulous not to announce my intentions. I also found myself loving Robert Piguet Mademoiselle Piguet, and it's is different enough from Oranger en Fleurs that I may need to own both of them.

    I don't know if Oranger en Fleurs is bombastic enough to qualify me for the club today, but Mademoiselle Piguet -- which I suspect I'll be wearing tomorrow -- definitely is.

    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..."

    I smell like this guy, because I'm wearing Imaginary Authors' "The Cobra and the Canary". Any hay in it has been smothered by a truckload of tar. A tough scent to wear.

    Afternoon all. Envious of those preparing for an Easter break. Alas, not for me - various circumstances have conspired to ensure that I will be working on both Good Friday and Easter Monday so it will be just like a regular weekend .


    SotD is V&R Antidote.






    G, I was exactly the same with Habit Rouge until a sudden epiphany - I still wonder why I don't wear it more often SO inspired by your post I will be doing so this evening






    (((30R))) you are such a trooper.

    SOTD: Today I am wearing Madonna's Truth or Dare. I actually like this fragrance quite a bit, although its still very new to me. I have never had the pleasure of smelling Fracas, and I heard that Madonna adored that scent, and that her perfume is very similar (which is why I bought it!) I spritzed a couple quick sprays on myself before going to Costco last night and I was happy to receive 2 compliments from random shoppers. I can see why a little goes a long way with this perfume, it can be a bit strong. If used correctly, I think it smells wonderful!

    I have read both great reviews and HORRID reviews online about Truth or Dare. I admit I am fairly new to my perfume obsession (addiction!)**cough - so is my nose just completely untrained or is this getting a bad rap for being another "celebrity" perfume? Maybe its because it doesn't smell just like all of the other gazillions of fruity florals that the young women today seem to favor...I dunno. I do know that I smell pretty!!

    From "back of the wardrobe," I'm wearing Sel de Vetiver and a spritz of Black Vetyver Cafe. While BVC has been a longtime wardrobe fave, I think SdV's thrill-a-bility may have come and gone.
    Spring fever overtook me today. I was virtually manic by the time I got to the Post Office. The other errand I ran was to pick up a free microwave oven. Our old one pooped out, so I checked our local "freecycle" site (a forum through Yahoo), and not two miles from me was someone giving away a nice Panasonic.

    May you find time for PT (perfume therapy), 30R.

    Don't worry, Mrs. E, I have rediscovered my affection for Magnolia Nobile! I don't know what it was a couple years ago, but twice I wore it to work and found some sharp note. I tucked it away for a while, and now it is back to it's lemony, slightly creamy magnolia accord that I loved so much.

    Ah, the beauty of visiting old favorites.
