    kalli, these pictures are candy for an eye, you know (of course beige_brown is my favorite combo)? I like your SotD too and what you said last night on yesterday's SotD thread.

    OK, the challenge is The Most Silent scent from the Back of the Wardrobe? I can do this. Yardley Iris, how about that?

    ExtremeK, I loved your thoughts yesterday too. Will come back to your post to read more about the scents with oranges/orange blossom. So that Piguet is very wearable, you say? And also, any chance you can post the picture of that bright jacket (or a link to a similar one)?

    Hello everyone!

    Twolf - Thank you for so much for kind words the other day, but I am afraid I can't take credit for the word 'bombastic.' I wanted to explain the origins, but Jon beat me to it with the irresistible dance by Mr. (Tonka) Bean. Originally this song was called Mr. Boombastic by Shaggy.

    Re 1932. I did give it full wear yesterday like a good girl and I see now why it's so appealing despite it's politeness. I smelled echos of both 28 La Pausa and 31 Rue Cambon, but there was something else in there, very elusive. Still too polite to be my cup of tea, but the dry down was absolutely exquisite. Mr. came for lunch yesterday and commented on how good I smelled. Usually when it comes to Chanel I have to wrench the compliments from him (except Coromandel) so it wasn't so polite after all, I guess.

    Good morning, I'm fruitilicious in mango lotion & Mure et Musc, playing against type I guess as I am dressed in tight jeans, high heels, black sweater - at my work Friday is jeans day, but they have decided not to allow any sneakers, even fashion nonathletic ones, which is fine, they don't want it getting *too* casual, but the only other shoes I have are the high heels that I wear to work the rest of the week...And high heels look ridiculous with jeans that are not, um, very fitted. So I end up looking a little bit trampy on Fridays, LOL.

    Beautiful flower pictures, Evangeline and Whitefluffy!

    My most silent fragrance would have to be Vera Wang Look, but that was just a little
    too silent for me today. So I chose the subtle Calvin Klein Beauty, which I like a lot.





    Have a great day!

    I got the chance to sniff a couple of the Floral Curiosities, both of which I am not impressed. Poet's Jasmine..where is the jasmine? I just smell sweet. Scarlet's Larkspur? I don't get any notes at all in that one. It smells like Versace Bright Crystal or something. Which, I hate to use the term but smells like non-descript hair spray, alcohol..not much else, musk maybe. I was really wanting to smell the SL given the notes..but where are they? It was a decant so..idk. Briar is far better than any FC I've smelled so far, just imo.

    Mike
    , for some reason I get a huge tomato in that Hermes. I know, it's not listed in the notes but right after the opening, I get tomato. Which, I personally didn't like but glad you like that one!

    tdem, I love the new avatar. You have such a friendly, pretty smile

    PerfumedLady, I'm sending your immune system lots of iron-strong thoughts -- can you help it along with some Vitamin C and D3? I'm very much hoping that the virulence of this bug means it will be over quickly, and so please send along my wishes for a speedy recovery to PerfumedGent.

    Jon, that video had me in stitches!! And elizrj, I only *wish* I could dance that well. Stinking fantastic.

    Robin, I seriously doubt you look trampy I'm betting more along the lines of ZA-ZA-ZING!!

    Well, Twolf, you and I both know that any fragrance recommendation *I* give really should carry with it a big ol' asterisk: WARNING: THERE IS A 90% OR BETTER CHANCE THAT THIS FRAGRANCE WILL GIVE YOU A TOOTHACHE.

    I have such a sweet tooth (sweet nose?) and, while I'm appreciating and wearing more fragrances that aren't as sweet, the sweet, syrupy ones still form the foundation of my wardrobe. So, while I don't find Houbigant Orangers en Fleurs sweet at all (in the same way I don't find Songes sweet), let me be the first to acknowledge that Mademoiselle Piguet is VERY SWEET. It's as if someone took a raft of orange blossoms and set them floating in a bowl of simple syrup and double-strength natural vanilla extract. There's no green (to my nose, at least). This is not subtle. This is not complicated. This is not fleeting. And I'm not quite sure how to explain this, but even though it's OVERT, it's not LOUD. It doesn't have a huge sillage in the way that so many gardenia, tuberose, and jasmine fragrances do. Somehow, that sweet vanilla holds the volume down.

    So I don't know if most people would consider it easy to wear (except in the sense that it's uncomplicated), but it sure appeals to my sweet tooth, and I enjoy it very much. And it makes me today, as I'm wearing it, very much NOT in synch. So, with irrepressible smiles continuing in full force, I shall trumpet -- very much UNSILENTLY -- my SotD:

    ROBERT PIGUET MADEMOISELLE PIGUET!!!



    Oh, and here's a link to the trench coat. In addition to the fabulous color (the unfortunately-named "Shrimp," which looks much more red in the photo than its actual deep coral color), it has a great little gathered, empire waist and floppy lapels. LOVE IT! http://www.eddiebauer.com/catalog/pr...mPathInfo=null

    Perfumelady, I hope your tummy feels better very soon.

    I've just been hanging out today so far, reading, doing routine financial stuff, drinking tea and trying to feel like a human again after a long week.
    Daughter has a cold and just now came out of her room. Yesterday she said she wanted to go shopping for jeans today; we'll see if she can get up the energy to do it.

    I haven't applied any scent yet but I am about to go reach for my bottle of Aqua Allegoria Lilia Bella.

    Nope, no tomato here (although I love tomato notes). It sort of has that caramelic quality of many lavenders (like the Caron Pour Homme) but with no vanilla, but the burnt sweetness is intensified with that candied anise. Incredibly soothing. Larimar gave me a whole bunch of samples, he was very generous, so I'm going through them quickly and loving all of them. The only one I have yet to drain is Paprika Brasil which I wear more in Spring/Summer - it's a great hot, sticky sort of scent.

    Staying with lavender (not necessarily a 'silent' one) in:

    L'Heure Vertueuse III by Cartier



    Gosh, this stuff is gorgeous. I really am silently obsessing about owning this one.

    Exactly the same here - the case of wine my sister sent from down under is now empty, and the final bottle was a Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region we visited when last there. Tastes like nectar from the gods after a hard day at the grindstone. The hot cross buns that preceded it were pretty good too .


    SotD is L'Eau D'Hiver, reapplied for the evening.




    Off into the Metropolis tomorrow for fragrant indulgence, caffeine, chocolate, and maybe a little imbibing too (it is Easter after all )
