    Default SotD: Saturday 20th April 2013

    Good morning all !. Full English breakfast (heavy on the black pudding ) consumed and about to venture forth on what is definitely a "JR day" - cold and frosty with blue skies and a light breeze. No planned itinerary, just getting in the car and seeing where mood and roads take us, though I suspect a traditional pub lunch will be inevitable at some stage. Wishing everyone an enjoyable day.


    SotD is Mugler Cologne.

    Jon, what a gorgeous landscape! Is that Yorkshire? And what a perfect day you have planned, my very favorite kind. Enjoy!

    Kiliwia, I love your gardenia photo, too. I’d love to have gardenias here (because no perfume can compare to the real live blossom) but it’s too cold here in the winter for them to survive.

    Hedonist, have fun at the beach!

    We’re about to leave the house for the day, too. The big day is here: the house is now going to be shown to prospective buyers – and from now on we must live in a model house. No clutter or messes allowed. Wish us luck! I’m not sure where we’re going today. First stop breakfast. We have the dog with us but it’s very cool today so we can leave her in the car with the windows open if we have to. I think we’ll probably go for a drive in the country, too.

    JR, that's the way! Mr.T here says that US highways are paved with our hard-earned dollars. We do it often ourselves, sometimes getting lost on the backroads forced to buy a pack of lunchmeat and mustard from a local grocer's. (No wonder, at any given time we have 3-4 opened mustards in our ice-box). Finding time when I am off two days in a row is the hardest part.

    Starting here with 20F (-6C), hopefully most of the snow will be gone by the end of the day. Somehow I was thinking about YR Neonatura Cocoon but since I do not have any, Casmir Chopard will do me.

    Sunshine between the clouds (makes me think of that Beatles song

    this morning and have been able to sit out for a good half-an-hour in the
    garden without getting goosebumps!
    I sprayed on the nearest available scent : Jimmy Choo.

    Ai! Cleveland weather! Upper 70s on thursday, this morning it's 30s and rainy. After I type this, it's back under the covers for me with a cup of tea and—thanks to a a generous BN friend—a re-spritz of last night's Sous le Vent to go with the rattling windows. I am loving it's lemon drop/carnation/vetiver/oakmoss progression which is nowhere near as jarring as it sounds. This is a masterful compostion that reconciles citrus, spice, green, and moss. They are all in the same room, and they are speaking to one another! Ah, and a little tobacco sneaks in from outside. Perfect. Thank you again; you know who you are (;

    Jon, your day sounds wonderful. Setting out sans destination is the greatest luxury, IMO.

    Lovely day to all.

    It's a beautiful sunny day here in Yorkshire and I've got the ultimate spring accessory that makes me smile, which is a full line of laundry flapping in the breeze and drying in the garden

    I'm wearing my newest acquisition, which is Joy by Jean Patou, and realising quite how much like Arpege it smells

    Good morning everyone!

    We're still at the beach, but I'm taking a small break from Chanel to enjoy a fave from last year, Alien Sunessence Or d'Ambre, aka Beach Alien. (Howdy teardrop!) I'm going to spend most of the day under a big umbrella with a book and some tunes ...and I might just fancy a refreshing cocktail in a few hours.

    Y'all have a fantastic day!




    Have a nice time on your journey Jon - we like to just meander every now and then, too.

    And you enjoy your day, hedonist ...just keep those noisy Jet Skis down at that end of the beach, ok?

    You too, lilybelle - good luck with ...well, everything!

    Excellent day out - much milder than forecast with shirt sleeves the order of the day. Stopped off at an old country tea room in rural Hertfordshire this morning, then proceeded on to Cambridge, taking in the old town, river and university area, combined with the predictable pub grub in a traditional watering hole.






    Managed a small purchase in the town centre which is shortly to become today's SotE (iodine )






    Recharging the batteries with a little cabernet sauvignon - enjoy the rest of your day, folks

    Quick check in here. I have been scentless all day, but will shower and put on Chanel 1932 for an evening of the unknown. Very stressful, possibly relationship changing. Ugh, I'm a bit of a mess lately. Sorry guys.

    Jon, your excursion sounds wonderful. I love those "wherever the wind takes us" days (that's the expression we use in Nebraska because of, you know, the constant wind)

    Lilybelle, good luck with your open house!!

    kalli, congrats on your find

    Evangeline, it's all good, sweetie! I've pm'd PerfumedLady about Pivoine Rose, which arrived today and which *I* really like, but my boyfriend actively *dislikes*. So it's going either to PerfumedLady or my peony-loving mom for Mother's Day -- it's ALL good.
