    Thumbs up SOTD, Monday May 13th, 2013

    Good morning everyone

    Have all a great week

    For me today is



    Original Issue
    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..."

    Hi all!

    l have a day off today, heading into town in a bit for a little clothes shopping, & maybe some sniffing. SOTD is a couple of discreet sprays of Bulgari Jasmin Noir.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    Hello everybody! I'm wearing Bal à Versailles edc this cool, sunny morning. I'll go for a while without wearing it, and then I'll get a craving for it, and when I do it's like..."aaahhhh, there you are at last!" It's so good.

    I hope everyone has a great start to their week. xo

    Well, well, well. I have just seen Saturdays thread with the picture of Twolf's rather magnificent bare bahookie!

    Teardrop, you and should hook up hun. I worked the weekend too and I'm now on my days off. Bliss.

    Dearest lilybelle The mere mention of BAV reminds me of your Monsieur.

    Arquiste Infanta en Flor today. Am I alone in thinking that this is wonderful? Not at all a personal choice for me but my word......

    Jon, I will wear out certain keys on my keyboard typing, yet again, how much I appreciate your photos (from Sunday). I worked for railfan publications, and my father built steam-traction (farm) engines, so you have, again, found subject matter worthy of my attention. Plus, the quality of your shots is great!

    On Saturday we hosted an originally-planned-as-a-canoe-race-viewing-followed-by-brunch gathering which turned into simply a brunch. (The weather had turned inhospitable for sitting by the river at 9 a.m.) Our brunch started at 10 a.m. and lasted until 5 p.m. = 7 hours(!) of great conversation between 11 people, surviving on fruit, cheese, homemade breads, and white wines from Wisconsin and Michigan. (Wouldn't you expect Germanic Wisconsin to produce a wonderful Riesling?) What a life, what nifty peeps, all of them gardeners or native-plant landscapers. R.e.a.l.l.y g.o.o.d t.i.m.e.s.

    Today I'm trying Bond No. 9 Central Park South. Notes: grapefruit blossom, black currant, green ivy; jasmine, ylang-ylang, narcissus, lily-of-the-valley; sandalwood bark, cedar, animalistic musk.
    It's pleasant and green, but not the least bit groundbreaking. I'm most conscious of the semi-sweet ivy note. Maybe it dry down into something less ivy, but I can't imagine it becoming more interesting or novel.

    Today I'm trying out JPG Classique from a sample I bought recently. It's rather nice but a bit sweet.

    I'm trying to be kind to my OH today, who found out in the early hours of this morning that one of his best friends since university had finally lost his 5 year fight against a brain tumour. A sad day in our household.

    Ah! Thats interesting and nice to hear Erink. Posts about this line are generally so negative, and I always wonder why. I have two samples, Explorer and Exotic, and I really like them both, particularly Exotic. It's fabulous. So in your honour that is now my scent of the evening!

    Evening all!

    Back from a quite productive shopping trip, having managed to miss most of the rain. l bought two dresses; one is a maxi dress with a beautiful butterfly design that almost matches my avatar! l tried two of the new Lush perfumes on skin; Furze & Sikkim Girls, which l will elaborate on later in the Sample of the Day thread. l spent my Boots Advantage card points on a 30ml bottle of Acqua di Gioia EDP, & got a free 20ml purse spray with it! Woohoo, freebies make me very happy. So happy that l celebrated with a Krispy Kreme doughnut. Not bad for a rainy Monday!

    (((Sfmedusa))) my condolences to your OH.

    Hello, everyone. I hope all of you had a good weekend.

    Mom is progressing well with her physical therapy -- she's already walking so much better than before the surgery. She's doing so well that if she keeps up this pace, they're going to kick her out of the rehab hospital 2 days early!

    It's the first really warm day of spring -- mid 80s F, and its sunny and beautiful out. But I'm a bit down as it would have been my sweet Dugan's 12th birthday today. I miss him.

    Thanks again to turquoisewater, I have had the utterly transporting pleasure of wearing Ormand Jayne Woman today for the first time. My goodness, what a beauty this is. And what a surprise to find that warm, amber drydown. Just gorgeous. So now the question of the moment: where can I buy this? Is it even available in the US (besides STC or TPC)?

    (((Sfmedusa and OH))) -- please accept my condolences. I'm so sorry.

    Jon, I'll echo Quarry in thanking you for the wonderful (and wonderfully evocative) photos yesterday.

    (((Cello)))

    ---Edit: ok, yeah, I found the OJ website. For some reason, I thought they didn't ship to the US....

    sfmedusa, really sorry to hear such sad news - my sincerest condolences.


    Mrs Q / ExtremeK, I am something of a nostalgia freak, especially with architecture and vintage transport. Saturdays excursion was tailor-made for me really, though everyone had a ball. (To the UK contingent - I should hastily point out that I have never owned an anorak and am definitely NOT a train spotter - I do have a life).

    I woke up with a heavy craving for lilacs. I'm wearing Côté Bastide Lilas, a sample from 30 Roses and burning a new Scentsy scent: Lilac and Violet. The new Scentsy is really nice ... I usually do not like any lilac-scented home fragrance products, but this one works.

Maybe I just need to put more on. lol I'm so used to needing 2-3 spritzes at most. I can't remember all the notes, but it has citron, peach, sambac jasmine, incense, amber, musk, vanilla, cedar and cinnamon. If anyone ever wanted a clean, spicy skin scent this is it.
