    Default SotD: Friday 3rd May, '13

    Good Morning Everyone,

    TGIF!!! Very much looking forward to the long May Day weekend.



    Reaching for this always has me thinking of: 1) Larimar, who introduced me to the scent via a sample, and 2) Arwen_Elf, who has long sung its praises. Mr. Rodgers is a fan too, I believe.

    Have a great Friday, all.

    Morning all! In synch with the mood-lifting Eau Ressourcante
    by Clarins. Gorgeous combination of basil, lemon, iris, benzoin and cedar
    keeping it natural and simple. I love to wear this on hot summer days or after a
    bath/shower to relax me and make me feel I can cope with anything.

    Hello everyone, SOTD is Worth Courtesan


    Notes include cinnamon, cardamom, clove, pineapple, red berries, bergamot, orange blossom, magnolia, jasmine, rose, sandalwood, peach, caramel, raspberry, chocolate, cocoa beans, amber, vanilla, musk


    It may sound OTT, but in the hands of Pierre Bourdon it's a well-composed oriental where sweet fruits and flowers are reined in by dusty-dry cocoa and spice (I get almost all cardamom)




    Happy Friday, all.

    Good morning everyone! I'm a crazy woman trying to tie up all my loose ends before I leave in a week. There are too many, I'm not sure I can get them all... I'm hoping this weekend to make a dent in my lists.

    Quarry, you need to teach a class in loving yourself and loving your life.

    I'm testing Jo Malone's Wild Fig & Cassis today. Oh my goodness is this green, green, chop up a fig tree, green. When I first put it on I was a little put off, but it's mellowing a bit. It's no longer punching me in the nose and I'm starting to warm to it.

    Hope everyone is having a warmer, sunnier day today.

    You believe correctly, sir in fact you may just have influenced my decision for todays SotE.



    In synch today with Geir. Seems to have gradually declined in popularity here on BN, but still always hits the spot for me and worthy of a permanent place in the wardrobe.

    Happy Friday well smelling Besenoters. Cheers

    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..."

When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Happy Friday, everyone! It's a beautiful sunny day shaping up outside. Planning to check on all my perennials today to see if anything is starting to come up. There hasn't been anything so far, too cold. Can't wait for the lily of the valley and the irises to come up.

    Wearing 24 Faubourg this morning.





    Have a lovely day!

    K., lovely poster, I have not seen it before with several bottles of F24 under my belt!).

    No fragrance for me today either. Mr.T is coming down with what I have got, we think.

    Somewhat synching in not mine, but 30 Roses's picker upper - L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger 2005 . Mine is Jasmin de Nuit which I left for this evening. A little too sensuous for work .

    Good morning all! I am back at work after a little stomach bug took me out for 24 hours. Yuck! But it is over now.

    Sort of in synch with Chanel Bois des Iles. I suppose it lifts my spirits, since it is my all time favorite fragrance and I love to wear it

    Happy Friday to all. Wine o'clock is at my house, since I am hosting a Happy Hour for a few tennis friends. You may join if you like. There will be wine for sure

    Hi all,

    Well it's been a long, tough week, but finally it's over, and..... TGIF!!!! Been feeling rather feverish & shaky at work today, & still sneezing & sniffling, but l am now collapsed on the sofa with no intention of going anywhere until tomorrow night. Let's hope the beautiful weather will hang around for Sunday, at least!

    SOTD was DK Gold, & l might spritz something else in a bit...

    I really like the sound of this, kewart - looks well priced too. On the weekend sampling list !.

    Already popped the cork here. About to hit the patio with a glass of gewürztraminer and bowl of mixed olives. Binoculars at the ready too as the Red Kites are soaring obligingly low here today.






    Eau de Patou for the evening.

    Poor Mr. Twolf! Hope he doesn't come down with it as badly as Mrs. You two deserve a break!

    Synced in Jasminora today, just back from seeing the annual live butterfly display at our botanical conservatory. So beautiful but I was aggravated to see not only children but also adults touching and grabbing the butterflies' wings. Very bad news for the little beauties when this happens. We're even reminded not to touch by the caretakers. Some people just don't belong out in public, was very sad to see this behavior.

    But on a happier note, spring seems to have finally found Indiana, yay! Hugs to everyone!

    Edit: Oops, where is my mind?! Meant to send healing hugs to teardrop! Sounds like you need to tuck in for a long rest, dear sweetie.
