    Default SOTD - Thursday 9th May 2013

    Morning all!

    The day has dawned bright & breezy here, but heavy downpours & gales are forecast for later on, so Un Matin d'Orage seems appropriate. l'm on an unusual (for me) 9-5 shift today, hence the odd time of posting.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Morning All,

    Yesterday I received a parcel from an incredibly generous BNer containing all sorts of goodies. Dipped in and pulled out Habit Rouge extrait for today.

    Have a great Thursday, gang.

    I'm going to bed with L'Artisan's Tea for Two! I'm have 90% left of my 100mL and I'm already wondering if I should seek out another bottle.
    Looking for THE femme fatale scent. If you think there is something I should smell please PM me!

    Morning everyone else!

    So Terry de Gunzburg. I had read about these somewhere or other and I came across them the other day. Are they available here before other places? Crikey, wonders will never cease.

    Terry de Gunzburg is the woman behind YSL's more than famous Touche Éclat and she has her own range of Cosmetics, "By Terry". Apparently her range of perfumes has been ten years in the making. I have no idea about thee perfumer/perfumers. In the collection (from memory) there is a fig with almond milk, an orange flower, a tuberose, a gardenia and an Amber, which struck me straight away as an Iris Amber, my favourite at first sniff. One of the fragrances had a dominant jasmine note too although it wasn't introduced as a jasmine. First impressions of the line are that the style of the collection is elegant, pretty, the mood fairly restrained, quietly chic perhaps. They will appeal mainly to lovers of pretty florals I think. Today I am going to try the Amber, Ombre Mercure.

    Have a great day all.

    Good morning all! Only 2 days til vacation and I'm a whirling dervish of lists and panic! I just have to give in to the idea that it WONT all get done. By Saturday I'll be all excited and letting go.

    Today I'm testing Mauboussin by Mauboussin, sent to me by a lovely BNer. That really doesn't narrow the field at all, because so far every basenoter I've met has been lovely, and this one thread, SOTD, adds such joy to my life each and every day. I can count on lovely pictures, friendly hellos, generous gestures from one to another, compassion and genuine interest in each other's lives. Amazing really in a world where I usually hear ranting and raving most of the day. It's crazy how bent out of shape people can get over little things. If you are crying and can't sleep at night because your carpet has a flaw in it, you really need a change of perception.

    Anyway, I am loving this fragrance and I'm shocked to see how reasonably priced it is. Usually if I like something, it's going to be stupid expensive ... Mona di Orio Oud, I'm scowling at you right now, you high priced hussy!!

    Hope you all are having a wonderful day

    Elizrj, Mauboussin is a stunner and a keeper. Also agree with you about our SotD threads with genuine interest in our day-to-day lives. And please do not fret about packing and preparations -- you will laugh about all this next week.

    Foustie, I did not know that she did Scents by Terry. Anyway, thanks for putting a new name on my sniffing radar.

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. 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

    Good morning, good smelling ones.

    Mure Et Musc Extreme. Restrained pretty scent, understated simple gray dress, black pumps with the 4" heels (which on my feet is not such a big angle as you might expect, btw) I feel damn near "Classy" today. If I could get the hair under control...

    Congratulations to the 5000 posts twins!
