    Good morning ladies- and gentlemen that will join later!

    Sampling two O.P.S.O fragrances, today, neither of which I like

    Araia- a plushy floral- and Carminia, a red berries- rose- jasmin combo. Both of them are quite dèja- smelt!

    Hoping to drop at Excelsior store, later, and do some quality testing.

    Have a nice day

    Hello everyone -

    I'm in 1932 this morning. Y'all have a good day!

    Good morning everyone! Bleh, it's Monday, but I'm wearing Amouage Memoir to try and warm up this cold and rainy day.

    Hope you all are having a great day!

    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..."

    Good morning. Today I am in one of my own, Neroli-muguet. Notes are: Orange Juice, petit grain, Neroli, Muguet, ylang, opoponax, coffee, flatbread, coconut. It's quite interesting at the moment. Feels very beachy. I added some salicylates to add a slight suntan lotion effect. The neroli and petit grain give it a nice green freshness, while the bread and coffee give it some contrast.
    The angel trumpets are opening up, wish you could smell this, it's quite intoxicating.

    I'm indulging myself with a few dabs of proper Miss Dior (that's the real stuff that was formulated a very long time ago, none of your new fluffy nonsense which smells all pink and girly). My parfum was from the mid 80s and is gloriously green and unfluffy.

    My day will be spent trying to keep a large general forum in the very leftist north of England in check on the day that many of them are planning parties because Baroness Thatcher has died. I may need to inhale lots of Miss Dior and drink plenty of tea before the day is out.

    I haven't seen any news yet, sfmedusa. I didn't know Margaret Thatcher had died. R.I.P. How terribly offensive to have parties over it.

    Good morning, quite hazy here but will be warm, in the lower 70s only to drop back down to freeze tomorrow. Oh well, our spring can't make up her mind, sounds familiar.

    I like the fact -- again and again -- that we are including facts of our daily happenings here into our SotD posts. A co-worker and I will go to the hospital to visit a friend after a stroke (?). Sad news about Iron Lady indeed --does not really matter if you liked her way of governing the nation or not, she knew how to speak and present herself in public. Much much respect.

    As inspired by our southern neighbor SotD yesterday,YSL Paris, Jardins Romantiques version.

    I suppose the idea might seem shocking to outsiders. Countless thousands (millions?) of people in this country have been talking about such a party for decades, so we're rather habituated to it. A wee insight into British culture.

    Good morning! We received a few inches of snow yesterday and there's more in the forecast for today. Oh well, it's still a beautiful day, it's my daughters birthday today!!! She's starting her OB clinical rotation at the hospital this morning, so she'll be having a very busy day. I'm hoping we can get out to Duluth to visit her in the next couple of weeks.

    Wearing Jo Malone Fresh Mint Leaf from a generous BN friend and it's terrific! I didn't know if I'd like it, because I wasn't too impressed with the other Jo Malone, jasmine and mint or whatever it was called. The Fresh Mint Leaf is so refreshing, it would be perfect for hot weather. Which will happen someday, right? lol



    Have a great day!

    I've cut my hair, sprayed on Creed Aubépine Acacia from a sample, and it's off to run errands again.

    Have a lovely day everyone!

    TWolf, you are correct; Margaret Thatcher would have been a perfect basenotes member—maybe she was (;

    Lillybelle, I love vintage Maja, the modern not at all. I have the vintage, both Spanish and Mexican manufacture, as well as Nueva Maja, that carnation bomb with the dark green juice which sings in the summer nights.

    Back to work this afternoon, first day of grading period. Ornery HS kids back from break. Do I beat them with an old-school aldehyde, or do I slap on some Ralph Hot? Hmmmn, mustn't waste treasures on them, not in the mood for Ralph Hot. Aha! Weil Kipling, and old, old-school masculine (cacio says aromatic mossy fougere), layered with Tea Rose.

    Thank you for the wee insight, Dr. G. I knew of course that she was not loved by everyone (to put it mildly - I've had more than an earful over the years from British friends pro/con), but the party did seem shocking to someone who didn't 'know'. Funny, isn't it, that there's noise from the Falklands again.

    Jujy, mine is a recent bottle that I won on the "free to a good home" thread. I think it's nice. It's fresh and spicy and fougère'ish, a perfect pick me up for a morning runnng errands. I sampled the edp in the black bottle, and that was completely different, a deeper and sexy chypre. I wish I had bought that one when I had the opportunity. I don't know the vintage Maja, though I love the black wrapped soaps. Those are on my soap wish list.

    Good morning friends. Easyfish, you smell wonderful!

    I played in a tennis tournament this weekend and lost fairly badly, so I spent Sat evening pouting until a friend came over and cheered me up. Yesterday, I spent a lovely day setting up my patio fountain and enjoying the sound of trickling water through the French doors all day. Of course, now it is supposed to turn cold again, so my luck

    AG Neroli today from the last of a sample. I'll keep fighting for spring!
