Hello everyone, the pretty fluff of Gai Mattiolo for me today.
Best to all.

Good afternoon !
Wearing the disappointing Cuir 28 today.
So this is finally be released after being announced completion 3 years ago and it turns out to be a flop!
In Arabic theres a saying that goes:
You fast, fast and fast without food and then finally you're given an onion to break your fast on!
Implying that you endured discomfort to only end it with something unappetizing as an onion.
Good morning everyone
Belated birthday wishes to Hedonist, hope you had a wonderful day.
Chanel No.19 for the work day, TF Grey Vetiver for yoga and then to undo all that good work with tapas this evening.
ErinK successful enabling! Narciso Rodriguez for Her on it's way and while I was distracted Tom Ford Grey Vetiver and Prada Infusion d'Iris also made their way home with me. Completely hopeless, even Mr Ford is shaking his head at me.
Have a lovely Wednesday!

Good morning all !. Hope your birthday went well, Saif - wondered about a belated champagne toast (minus the pretty dress and big hat) but decided that colleagues might not approve of bubbles and burps for breakfast.

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..."

Got a part wholemeal, part white flour loaf baking this morning, so I am wearing Jo Malone English Pear and Fressia. Windfall apples and pears and the smell of baking are my favourite things in autumn :-)

Hello everyone -
I'm sure it's going to sound crazy to some of you, but I'm wearing Aromatics Elixir for ballet and barre this morning, but just the smallest amount, really - one spray shared between my wrists. It won't be too much ...it's not too much right now so it'll be even more subtle by then, but I'm really not worried. Actually, I hope someone does get a whiff of me - I smell incredibly wonderful.
Y'all have a great day!
Hi there, Danielle! It's so nice to see you here - thanks for joining us. I bet you smell just heavenly along with your tasty loaf!
Hello all. Annick Goutal Myrrhe Ardente.
Wearing Bulgari Black. A good getting-on-a-plane on a rainy day scent...
Hedonist222--there are so many onions out there, no?

Evangeline I love a light spritz of AE, so glad someone is wearing it.
Craving Bois de Îles again so that and a bit of Sinatra tonight, song of the night 'It Had to Be You'. Yep, cosy.

Cuir Ottoman for me today- definitely not an onion!
Happy belated birthday, Hedonist!
Wish you all a nice day.

Best belated birthday wishes for Hedonist.
Hope this gold-gilded birthday cake is hedonistic enough for lovely you.
Xscent, Jon, I am so up for some Aussie reds and chocolates and "wasting" time with the likes of you.
Ursula, sounds like you have a wonderful son (N.Y. Marathon participant, poll worker). Since my lovely daughter is a runner, we watched the TV coverage on Sunday. So, umm, how old is your son …?
Chicagoista, Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere just hooked me a little more than it did back whenever I first smelled it. Eau Premiere was one of the ten samples I brought home from Chicagoistaville. I thought it was regular 5, sprayed it on, expecting the "right-angled" notes of 5, then got drawn in by the "rounded-corner" notes of Eau Premiere.
So, Kiliwia, what do you make of the Tory Burch? I can’t remember which of our Meet-up Mateys (stole that moniker from Rtamara) went into the Tory Burch store.
RHM, I’m relieved for your sister. One booted step closer to better days, I do hope.
RHM, Rtamara, did you try the Palmer House-supplied shampoo, conditioner and body lotion by Peter Thomas Roth? I didn’t like the hair products at all, but the moisturizer is smooth, non-greasy and smells faintly like the nature-based Yves Rocher Green Tea with a hint of lemon, which I enjoy very much.
Mike, I’ve used your luscious Shalimar cream on my hands two nights now (and I spray Shalimar on one wrist). It takes about an hour before I can recognize the cream as Shalimar. You just know that has to be, at least in part, my sour skin factoring in. What’s more powerful is the sense that I’m applying this emollient I associate with your sweetest, which makes me feel loved in the kindest way.
Good to see you here, Danielle. SotD is the coolest place to be, ya know.
It’s raining, and it seems like a nice day to dip into the Byredo that’s quickly becoming renamed Glenn’s Saffron (which is a better hybridized name than Black Furriner, given that this scent is actually Black Saffron from BNer Glenn who’s known as Furriner here).
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Good morning or afternoon, all you good-smelling people! Sexy Beast (the Steinway) gets a checkup and a tuning today and I'm home with a cold, so I'll cheer myself with Amarige—again. (wonder what this Amarige jones is all about...)
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
Good morning everyone! Very cold today, only 19 degrees.
Quarry, the Tory Burch is nice, but a little generic. I need to wear it a few more times though to really know for sure.
Joining Ipp in Portrait of a Lady this morning.
Have a great day! xoxo

Yum, Danielle! Fresh bread (and butter) is one of the best things in the whole world. My mouth is watering!
Xscent, congrats on your new goodies! I can't wait to see how you like the NR for her - I will have to try that one one day. And yay @ your new bottle of Infusion d'Iris...as pedestrian as it may be among my more niche irises, it is my all time favorite scent.
(OK, other than freshly baked bread. Maybe I should have said it's my all time favorite perfume.)
Speaking of niche iris: today I'm in Keiko Mecheri Iris d'Argent. This one ranks pretty high for me, too.
So many SOTDs today that I have never tried! Most notably, POAL and Aromatics Elixir. I've got my work cut out for me.

Good morning, good smelling people in the New World, and good evening to those on the other side of the globe.
Caron Tubereuse today, the end, and I mean the END of the sample. Like tapping it hard on my forearms to get it all out. So pretty but I think out of my reach price wise. So I am floralicious today.
OK, Evangeline AND Xscent, here's a good one for you:
I work with a lady who is maybe in her late 60s or early 70s, who wears this BIG perfume. I have never asked what it is, but it's STRONG and she wears a LOT of it. And it smells RETRO. And did I mention it's strong? Like, you can walk through a hall where she was walking 5 minutes prior and it smells like she is still standing there. It has been driving me nuts lately not knowing what it is...
So just now I walked into the the ladies' room and there she was in her big cloud of patchouli (and I have a migraine, I think) and I finally got the nerve to ask her what perfume she wore... her response: "Aromatics by Clinique."
That said, am sure on you lovely chickadees it smells fabulous.
Good morning everyone!
Belated Happy Birthday wishes to hedonist222!
I have to go watch Mom for a few hours and I'm going wearing a scent she likes, orange blossom-- body cream by Perlier and cologne from a Malone sample.
Bread and butter..nothin better. LOL, I've heard people of doing a low carb lifestyle...and I have to say, that's not for me! LOL. I just can't have a 'chicken sandwich' wrapped in lettuce instead of bread. Or spaghetti without pasta, burgers without buns...no croutons on salad..no thanks. Pass the bread, mashed potatoes and tortellini please.

Good morning everyone! Amouage Fate Woman for me today.
Look who graced us with their presence, hi Dani!
La Perla Parfum Prive. Brisk and sunny here today, about 1" of snow on the ground and it is not in any hurry to melt, looks like.
