    Default S.O.T.D. - Saturday, 9 November 2013

    Hi all - have a lovely day!

    The 'Pick me something to wear' bit in my wardrobe just chose Anjin, which was very kind

    Good morning lovely people

    Opera-ing this evening. Last one for the year. Going all out and I'm taking a style cue from Olivia Wilde recent Gucci tux look. Shamelessly copying it in fact

    Also raising a glass to loved ones passed and absent friends tonight. The years pass and still, I miss them everyday. Listening to Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah indeed.

    Marking the occasion in drops of the achingly beautiful L'Heure Bleue vintage Parfum this evening.

    Have a wonderful day all.


    Twolf wishing you a great weekend after your less than fab Friday!

    Good morning! We did get some snow yesterday. It also got very icy and caused several accidents around the area. It always takes a while for people to remember to slow down.

    Wearing Mona di Orio Les Nombres d'Or Tubereuse.





    Have a great day!

    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

    Happy Saturday everyone! I'm wearing Ambre Sultan today. It's another college football TV day, Jayhawks are away so I'm not traveling to Lawrence. I put a breakfast casserole in the crock pot last night and have ingredients all ready for Bloody Marys to have for the early games. Hubby has some pork on the smoker for pulled pork sandwiches for later. I LOVE fall football days!

    Hi all,

    Had a lovely long lie-in this morning, made french toast with bacon for brunch, & did some light chores today. Mr teardrop is making fajitas, & l've just poured my first glass of merlot for this evening. Planning a nice cosy night in tonight, while the rain pours down outside.

    Vintage Samsara EDT suits the mood perfectly. Cheers!

    Good afternoon, New World, and good evening to y'all across the water. Like Teardrop, had a blessedly lazy morning, working now.

    Fiore di Riso for today. I think Reglisse Noire tonight after a shower though, it's gonna be cool out and it's so yummy in the cold.

    Hey y'all - me again!

    I'm in another discontinued though incredibly gorgeous Gucci this afternoon, vintage L'Arte di Gucci edt, possibly my favorite classic, dark and mossy rose-chypre. ♥

    RHM - I love that L'Artisan. I admire a well done, non-traditional eaux-type cologne. That one just smells like a day-at-the-spa in a bottle to me.
    Evangeline - those odd Gucci bottles were so cool...back before Gucci went all commercialized-horrible-fragrances. That scent is super-animalic on my skin...embarrassingly so. Still...it's chypre accord is fantastic.


    Sharing the house, with RHM in:

    Timbuktu by L'Artisan Parfumeur (from a sample)



    I thought this stuff always smelled like Dzonghka but today, after having smelled it for the 1st time in several years, I can now discern the differences between them. This one is much more acrid, the incense - less tart & pickle-y. Nonetheless, I wonder what my sillage smells like. It's such an odd scent. Perfect for a cool windy Saturday afternoon running around doing chores.

    This afternoon a friend's coming over for movies, lunch and hanging out - maybe I'll sample some fragrances while I watch the movie, I always find it a great opportunity to sniff your wrist and really concentrate on a sample.

    Mike, enjoy your afternoon, and I hope you get some sniffing in!

    That one is one that I still am a bit afraid of, but have my sample out and will do it soon.

    Another vanilla, per my trend these days - Profumum Acqua e Zucchero, which is a sweet berry and vanilla frag. Enjoying my sample today, and finished it.

    I can still sort of smell the Timbuktu, the longevity is deceiving.

    Having a 'gentleman caller' over tonight . A shower and the rest of my Rose 31 sample are in order.
