    Default SotD: Sunday 8th June 2014

    Good morning all !






    Back from Yorkshire where mother nature took it upon herself to throw every season at us in the space of two days - warm with a light breeze on Friday, cold and wet yesterday. Looks promising early on here so hopping in the car and seeing where we end up. Coffee and cake will be the only certainty on an unplanned magical mystery tour. Old habits die hard.


    ComDiva, completely agree with your comments about Neil Morris. Supremely talented perfumer and a true gentleman .



    Shades, hope you had great day together. Belatedly ....




    SotD is Creed SMW.

    Hi everyone,

    Belated happy anniversary to Mr and Mrs Shades.

    Happy birthday Tdem! Have a wonderful day, I'm sure you're being spoilt and quite rightly so.

    Easyfish that's a lovely one, shame it's been discontinued.

    ComDiva I found the first three from the Explosions d’Émotions range a bit all over the place. In the end I got Skin on Skin because of it’s weirdness. I get a warmth from the saffron, vanilla and slight boozy whiskey notes, the weirdness is the contrast of the metallic twang which might be the iris. Even after several wearings I can’t decide if it’s strange beautiful or a hot mess.

    Hosted my sisters baby shower yesterday which was fun but exhausting. Most importantly she loved it and that’s all that matters to me. The whole house still smells heavenly with the scent of brioche, vanilla lemon cake, roses and tuberose. Life is getting chaotic as I try to get everything done before I fly out Friday.

    L’heure Bleu EdP today and probably a little too much Bois des Îles parfum and EdT tonight.

    Happy Belated to The Shades.

    Lemon cake, is there a good lemon cake perfume? Not musky/syntheticy? I ask for too much, lol.

    Speaking of lemon, they say to spruce up vanilla ice cream, add lemon curd and rasberries, sounds good.

    Ambre by MdO, good one but pricy, oh well.

    I am in Shaal Nur today. About to go down to the in-laws place in the country to escape the mad heat here - it's 33 degrees here and humid because we had some rain recently....

    Happy Sunday to you all!

    Happy Birthday, dearest tdem! So glad I stopped in today! Here's your birthday on the bass:



    Myself, I've been, for lack of a better word, discombobulated. How discombobulated? I am missing BOTH pairs of distance glasses—somewhere in my house! SOTD on this rainy day will be Guerlain Véga. I may go with something green later to energize.

    Feeling relaxed & golden after my afternoon in the sun, l'm continuing this weekend's coconut theme in Tubereuse Diabolique by Ava Luxe. Despite its name, this to me is the scent of fresh, moist coconut, with a faintly floral side. Vernona, you might enjoy this one!

    Hope you find your specs, jujy!

    definitely gotta try that one! ava luxe has a couple of "coconutty" offerings, all on my "try-out list", have to speed it up a bit tough, I always find something else I have to try so it always escapes...Writing it down for homework!

    Got some very nice coconut suggestions here, thank you everyone!

    Happy Birthday, tdem.

    Jujy, good luck finding your glasses. That sounds awful.

    Yesterday we had a friend's big party, which was super fun but lasted into the wee hours. I picked Mimosa Pour Moi for that, because it is pretty but quiet.

    I am so worn out I just realized I didn't even put on any perfume today. This year I've had bad spring allergies for the first time in my life. I have taken some over-the-counter medicine the last few days, which does help alleviate the symptoms, but it also knocks me out. "May induce drowsiness" for sure. I would go further and say "exhaustion." I think I should make a doctor's appointment tomorrow instead of trying to figure this out on my own.

    Belated Happy Anniversary wishes for shades and Mr. shades!

    And a very happy birthday to Terry -- the gentlewoman of our wonderful SotD thread

    (((mike))), (((ErinK))), and (((Xscent))) just 'cuz I haven't done it in a while.

    Joining Quarry in amazed appreciation for CapriDog's library photo. My goodness! The tune "These are a few of my favorite things" was running through my head when I saw it, but in a mixed up, Carnivale dream-scape sort of way, if you know what I mean. If I ever lose the rest of my marbles and become Miss Havisham, THAT is where I want to go completely bat-sh*t crazy. LOVE.

    Count me the third in the trio that adores cool-weather wearings of Cadjmere. Quarry, ComDiva, and I fed off of each other's Cadjmere-crazy most of last winter.

    I've been lemming patchouli this weekend -- but SUMMER patchouli. I wore ELdO Nombril Immense this morning and Atelier Cologne Mistral Patchouli yesterday and this evening. And now I'm enjoying an amazingly tart Rioja rose -- a Grenache/Tempranillo blend that has vaulted right to the top of my summer wine list. It's the only rose on my list, frankly, but it's darn good.

    O my, looks like many people love Cadjmere, will definitely give it another go in the winter ..Could be that it didn't perform well in the heat, it was way too strong, and then again I had a idea om how it's supposed to smell and it was completely different so maybe that's why I didn't like it at first..
