    Thumbs up SOTD, Sunday May 5th, 2013

    Wish everyone a very happy Sunday. 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..."

    Hello everyone, SOTD is L'Aimant vintage eau de toilette, François Coty's beautiful answer to Chanel No. 5. I get the similarity, specifically in the initial rush of aldehydes. Once the sharp angles of those recede, I get the rounded, fluffy, almost-but-not-quite-edible sweetness of L'Heure Bleue or Farnesiana.



    Best to all.

    Good morning, everyone -

    I'm in vintage Givenchy III, 70s edt, for this last day of Jazz Fest ...the lineup is great as usual, but a highlight of this afternoon will definitely be The Black Keys!

    Y'all have a fantastic day!

    I like that one, too! It's wilder, like a violet in love should be, not quite so prim.

    Good Morning, everyone!

    Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien. After extensive and very educational e-mail session with 30 Roses, I believe it's a pre-reformulation. Very mossy.

    G'day all !. Been a busy weekend here. Spent yesterday dodging the showers in Windsor.





    Just arrived back after a ramble around the Hertfordshire countryside - skylarks in abundance and extremely vocal today, G.





    Followed by a light lunch at our favourite local eatery. Delighted to see the whole Atelier range has appeared next to the Creeds and Trumpers in their main store in the adjacent converted barn - even managed to grab a few free samples.






    SotD / SotE is Millesime Imperial.

    Good Evening All,

    Sounds like a great weekend, Jon. Those Skylarks can be a vocal lot, can't they ? I think I remember hearing / reading they mimic the odd song, too.
    No. 5 (80s EdP) first thing, then Chypre Palatin ( sample ) post-run, now Jicky extrait.
    Tomorrow's a public holiday here, and the weather is set to be fab.
    Best to everyone.

    Roberto - I love that Cologne. Enjoy!
    donna255 - is that Institut Tres Bien different than the Cologne a la Russe (which I used to own)? I didn't know ITB did parfums...
    gandhajala - what's the holiday tomorrow?


    It's a warm one today in Miami, so this morning I was scentless (just felt appropriate) and I'm ending the evening in the lovely:

    Terre L'Encens by Cloon Keen Atelier (thanks Foustie for the sample)



    I've had a sample of this one for a while now and I kept procrastinating sampling it. No reason, really, I'm just overloaded (as always) with tons of samples. I got out of the shower (after my massage this afternoon) and I was craving lavender and mint (probably because I have been using that Bliss Mint scented shower gel that is awesome) and so I went to get my sample of Oxford & Cambridge by C&S that Foustie sent me, and I ended up grabbing the wrong atomizer and sprayed it on before I realized I'd sprayed the wrong one.

    Which was no problem at all, since this one is really nice.

    Sort of a softer, less smoky, 2 Man by Comme des Garcons - focusing more on the frankincense and giving it a little nudge with very soft iris notes (almost undetectable). A skin scent, but hovering with a nice soft presence. Sexy.
