    Good morning all !. Best wishes to those feeling under the weather and positive vibes for speedy recoveries all round. Mike, hope your evening out was a roaring success - no-one deserves it more.


    Spent yesterday dodging the showers in the grand old city of York - architectural gems, historical curiosities, culinary delights (CAMRA pubs, G !) etc etc. Ready for a unique experience later - mead o'clock. Purchased two bottles in the Jorvik Viking museum and plan to take on the roles of Thor and Freya in due course





    Also managed the obligatory pilgrimage ....





    Had another shot at the Blood Concept line at the perfumery and ended up asking the same question - "why" ?. Weird and somewhat disconcerting house IMHO - I won't be revisiting. They now also stock the full ELDO range among their selection, which is absolutely huge for such a relatively small shop.



    Even managed to catch up with a few old warhorses later in the day ...





    Hope everyone enjoys the remainder of their weekend.

    Good morning!

    Revisiting ELDO Archives du 69, from a sample I was given in the eponymous 69, Rue des Archives Boutique in Paris. Nice and funny, though a bit weak and banal in the drydown, IMHO.

    Have a nice day, all of you.

    ExtremeK we are most certainly oyster twins m'dear. Strong and briny are the order of the day for me too. A dash or lemon and a glass of Verve or Dom and I can get through a couple dozen of these babies easy.

    Jon looks like a great day. Gosh that shop is jam packed!

    Brilliant night, suffered most of this morning . Dinner was faultless and although one 'fessed up I suspect my very daggy '80's music playlist was being played as a special thank you for me which was equal parts disconcerting and cringe worthy. On top of the excellent food and company we caught the fireworks display as part of the Deepavali celebrations. It's the sort of night that slaps you upside the head and makes you realise your many blessings in life.

    A very bad pic of the food (sorry was on my third? glass of wine) and yes, that is a copper roasting pan full of chateaubriand.

    Scentless for the morning, surfaced in a more coherent state after lunch and was craving a few dabs of vintage Cuir de Russie extrait and to listen to La Traviata. Alfredo and Violetta! Verdi at his most heartbreakingly romantic. Now back to paint splattered jeans and my date with a paint brush.


    Oh, received another bunch of roses. Perfection.

    Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

    Lovely reports, both JR and Xscent, some nice choice of words too (a sucker for a nicely built phrase here).

    By Kilian Love and Tears Surrender today. Still sampling all these beauties received last week, samples and decants. Had a choice between this and PG Cuir D'Iris, but Cuir sits clumsily (to borrow the word from MikeP) on this skin.

    Good morning!

    Still very mild weather here for November. I'm starting to have an inkling of hope that it means a milder winter.

    Yesterday at the mall I picked up a sample of JM Orange Blossom. I never cared for this before but I thought my mother might like to try it. But one of my little orange tree's blossoms opened last night so I had to sniff side by side with the Malone sample, and I am shocked at how close they are! I still prefer the L'Artisan but I feel like I'm understanding the Malone better and definitely appreciating it more. My daughter likes it quite a bit.

    Off to Mom's for my usual Sunday coverage while the caregiver takes 5 hours off, and then we're taking her out for lunch.

    November is off to a grey start here, so I shall brighten my day with Mollie Parnis, whose tea-like note will go well with my morning caffeination of Lapsang Souchong/maté blend. Pleasant Sunday to all.

    I so enjoy our Scent of the day threads! Thank you each & every one for your beautiful contributions.
    Each day is a trip to far away places as I read your posts, look at the pictures, listen to music. Wonderful!

    All fantastic stuff, Jon. And I do love me a good CAMRA pub

    Was re-testing Dior's Bois d'Argent today, just because I fancied something different.
    Anyway, I've decided to take a bit of a sabbatical from BN (all's hunky-dory - promise !). I'll still check in from time to time, though.
    Best to everyone.

    Good morning, everyone! It's a beautiful fall day here, temps are to get into the high 50's this afternoon, which is really nice for this time of year.

    A belated Happy Birthday to 30 Roses mom, I hope she had a wonderful day!

    Wearing biehl parfumkurstwerke gs03 this morning, a sample from the Chicago meet-up. It's a very light and beautiful scent. Notes are neroli, orange flower absolute, mandarine, juniper, schinus molle, a fusion of iris absolute, rose oil, vetiver, castoreum, musk, benzoe siam, moss, tonka and cedarwood. It's really nice, very clean and fresh.

    Have a great day!

    Good morning everyone -

    We're having a lazy morning in bed with our coffee, croissants, clementines and cats. We're also watching the pros play tennis in Paris, but none of that starts with a "c". I'm in Shalimar Parfum Initial ...y'all have a good day!

    I'll take mine sweet and briny, plus a dash o' Tabasco with the lemon, thanks!

    Jon - your day sounds and looks wonderful! Those are the best sorts of perfume shops - small but stocked to the rafters, and they usually seem to have a pretty good selection of new-old-stock ...when that's what you're afters.

    iodine - Awful Sound(Oh, Eurydice) has been in and out of my mind for the past several days, and each time it pops up I think of you in your Hindu Kush ...so now, after loving them for over a decade, Arcade Fire now reminds me of a girl I've never met in a perfume I've never smelled. Pretty cool!

    30 R - did your mom have a nice day yesterday? You must be so excited about your little orange blossom. I have a young plumeria plant that has several baby buds on it after three years of nothin', and I think I'll probably just burst with joy when they finally bloom!

    Mimi - hi there, sweetie! It's always great to see you, but now I'm just confused - yesterday you were far from home, and today you're exactly where you should be ...does that mean you'll be with us for a while yet?

    You smell beautiful RHM - I have the edc too and I love it so much. It's one that I still like to actually pour in my hand and splash on! I've decanted most of my splashes, but not that Chamade edc.

    gandhajala - I sure hope you're happy and well while absent, but please do check in. I'll miss you! xo

    ^ We did kalli, thanks for asking! It was excellent, classic Nine Inch Nails, as you'd expect, especially since Trent Reznor, NIN lead singer and once a New Orleans resident, was a huge proponent of Voodoo Fest before it ever took off, and the locals idolize him ...he just eats up all the love and gives it right back. I'm more of a fan than Tony by far, but he was quite impressed, too ...and a very good sport.

    Good morning...We did laundry Friday night, me and the littles, and at the laundromat I smelled my cheapie sweatshirt from forever 21 and it smelled so incredible but I can't for the life of me remember what I was wearing when I wore it!!! The 9 year old was begging me not to wash it, it smelled so good. I know I wore it on date with the Boyfriend, and generally speaking I wear the MEME around him, but this wasn't that. I am thinking it was a combination of things that I'd not consider wearing layered because they would stink? But some sort of sweater magic turns them into a magical wonderful smell? My suspects are the Mure Et Musc Extreme, Tabac Aurea, She-Wolf, Reglisse Noire, and To Dream. The To Dream never develops on my skin, it smells the same pretty much straight through, but maybe this is what it would develop into?


    Anyway, it had to be washed, it had been a long time.


    Today a teeeny bit of the aforementioned To Dream, to see if it makes this sweater fragrant like that.
