    Default SOTD Wednesday 17th April 2013

    17 April already. Crikey, isn't the year flying by?

    POAL for lunch with a friend at the Charles Rennie McIntosh House for an Art Lover. The idea was to dine outside but it's raining cats and dogs!

    You said it, Foustie - wasn't it just Christmas?!

    Hello everyone, Pacifica Island Vanilla for me, a vanilla that's simple yet with just enough interest (accents of jasmine, tea, a wisp of smoke) to keep one from nodding off.

    Best to all.

    Good morning !. SotD is Penhaligon's Endymion.





    As a proud Yorkshireman, I'd better keep my trap firmly shut over all the pomp and pageantry going on in London this morning. Suffice to say the television will be staying off.



    Happy hump day all

    Hello lovelies! I feel as if I had plunged into a whirlpool the past week with friends from all over the globe popping in to say hi. Some of them I've not seen in over a decade! Friends from Hawaii are coming over next week to stay for a month and I'll be busy getting things organised for that.

    SOTD: None, as I will be attending a Kodo ceremony this evening at the Conran Shop. Haven't attended one


    incense.jpg since my grandmother was still around. An email I received in preparation of it states; no perfume or hot pants... as if one would lol

    Not even watching the live stream on the BBC website ?
    Non-UKers might be interested to learn that the song 'Ding, dong, the witch is dead' from the Wizard of Oz made it to No.2 in the official UK pop charts this week. I'm saying nothing.

    Yesterday I wore Chypre Palatin from a sample ( Kiliwia), today I'm wearing Sycomore which is much more 'me'.

    Happy Hump Day, everyone.

    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..."

    Pretty appalling really - I may not be shedding any tears, but I can't understand the mentality of anyone openly gloating.



    What did you think of the Chypre Palatin, G ? - I only had a brief sniff in Fortnums recently but it seemed like a quality composition.

    Good morning all!

    I've been using more lavender lately-- body washes, lotions... a homemade roll-on with lavender essential oil in an oil base...

    I don't know why, but I'm finding it grounding.

    I'll be taking my daughter to PT again today and later on, my final class for training to tutor literacy. And until then, hemming/shortening some pants for my mother.

    I also ignored the TV earlier, but since I run a large forum I couldn't avoid the overwhelming anger that people have been aiming at each other this morning, and ever since Baroness Thatcher died.

    I'm grounding myself with Cabochard today

    Let's hope that everybody calms down about it all now.

    I too had only sniffed it briefly at F&M before receiving samples on Monday. It seems well done : juicy, sweetish citrus + greens > slightly powdery florals on a benzoin / costus base. Some smokiness in there, also. I can understand its appeal, even if it doesn't grab me. PM me if you'd like a sample.

    Good morning everyone.

    I'm wearing my sample of Ormonde Jayne Woman today. I needed a shot of something lovely to deal with a rotten day. I really love this scent, and it's definitely a front runner for my full bottle splurge in May.

    Sacrebleu reminds me a lot of where A Lab on Fire's What We do in Paris is Secret would have been with a little time to mature. Still a lot of vanilla and honeyed fruit smoothie, but more nuanced and layered, and less in-your-face.

    A good sunny-day scent.

    Good morning, everyone -

    I'm in Chanel Beige again ...finally, a Chanel fragrance that's great at the beach ...so naturally, I'm already thinking of it as Chanel Beach, lol. But honestly, that makes a lot more sense to me as it doesn't smell beige at all. This is a cheerful and breezy tropical floral from start to finish, and color-wise much more like vivid coral frangipani ...which also sounds prettier.

    Y'all have a great day!

    Neil Morris City Rain this morning. Nice. Has already blown through the very flowery opening and is in the slightly papery smelling, well, I have to agree with the description, wet concrete but good. World washed clean and sunshine smell.

    Good morning!

    Happy Birthday, Coconut!

    (((Lilybelle))), wishing you good luck with selling your house! It doesn't sound like much fun having to be ready to show your house at anytime, yikes!

    Gandhajala, sorry the Chypre Palatin didn't work better for you, but considering how much a bottle costs, maybe it was a good thing.

    SotM is Blackberry & Bay.





    Have a great day!

    Happy Birthday to Coconut. How are you doing my dear friend?

    K
    's snowstorm is here and co-incidentally, I am enjoying a two day off break from my both jobs. It had to be happening: all this time and nowhere to go because of bad weather, will do a small roast beast and Dr.G's world famous carrot cake. Will cuddle with Mr.T, he is long overdue for a smidgen of tenderness. Will go to the library too, my new list for 2013 is ready (I know it is mid-April!) so they can ILL me whatever I fancy.

    elizrj, please please buy it. Yes, it costs a significant chunk of dough, but who counts when the well-being and overall joy are being involved? Besides, it is always better to regret something that has been done than not!

    Another day in Bottega Veneta.
