    Thumbs up Re: SOTD: Thursday, 3rd October, 2019

    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..."

    ROBERTO, your picture is making me unaccountably peckish! Looks delicious.

    I'm wearing Jaipur Bracelet today from my mini bottle. It's usually a very light fragrance and is easily gone when I dab it slightly, so today I dabbed away like mad to give it more strength...I think I managed to overapply as I smell it everywhere. Today the wind smells like Jaipur Bracelet. My coffee smells like Jaipur Bracelet. My colleague's incense stick smells like Jaipur Bracelet. My thoughts have some slight aromatic quality to them. No one complained nor commented though, so I'm just hoping this little aromatic cloud is not seeping too far from me.

    Been there. Regrets, I've had a few.

    Roberto, I think we have a consensus: We'd all like to start the day with you.

    Another drizzly forecast. The best wet-day comfort scent is Hové Rue Royale parfum. This is one of those scents I think every male and female BNer should reference. I think it could also be the official scent of the New Orleans French Quarter -- not to take away anything from NOLA's Bourbon French Parfums, which also offers a fine collection of scents.

    Whitefluffy!!! How great it is to see you! Very glad that circumstances have allowed you to return to us; a very happy surprise! I loved that MPG yesterday. The ylang and jasmine are just my type!

    Trying Smolderose today, finally, after reading so much about it. Gorgeous rose; nearly as jammy as Rose Flash but lighter, airier and sparkling. Love the leathery note. Wish it was missing its agarwood note, though. I do have a tough time with this material but in this case, it at least doesn't ruin the whole thing for me. Still in solid "like very much" territory, which is another happy surprise for the day! Thanks a bunch for this, HOP- outside my usual zone today AND enjoying it!

    Good Morning everyone!

    Thank you all so much for the warm welcome and for making me feel at home again! Ladies and gentlemen you are the best!

    I am looking forward to making new fragrance discoveries with all of you. Speaking of...I felt like I missed so much of what was happening in the fragrance world. Can you please share your favorite discoveries over the past year or two? I just need a starting point....

    Mr WF and I are going for a date-lunch today at the fancy restaurant downtown. They have this amazing salad with in house made honey lavender vinegraitte, which is quite yummy.

    SOTD - Profumum Roma Rosae Mundi I finally splurged on the travel size spray for this one. I still think it is one of the most beautiful roses out there.

    Hello and best to everyone. Welcome back, Whitefluffy!

    SOTD is Serge Lutens Santal Majuscule. I think it’s a little austere for me as opposed to, say, Santal de Mysore or Samsara.

    O.M.G. Whitefluffy!!!! Howdy, woman! I've been thinking of you! So nice to see you here-- had to stop in to say hi! (I'm behind on writing to everyone ) I have been mostly popping on briefly and hoping to post and never getting around to it. You smell great today, and don't give up on that JM Hyacinth. It will scratch an itch when you least expect it.

    PL, you smelled delish yesterday, too! I need to dig that MPG out. In fact, I need to get all of them into the mix again, lol.

    And yes, I think I like "Breakfast at Roberto's" better than Tiffany's.

    Sotd is Egoiste, kindasorta vintagey, I suppose, or older at least.

    p.s. sending more get well/recovery wishes for Mr. Q with his newly avant garde glasses and hoping he is back in the Q's avant garden soon. Also quick healing wishes for poor Mr. Cat. Even if he remembers next to nothing! Eek.

    edit: p.s.s. a big hug for Jon, just for being Jon.

    Busy day but I stopped into Nordstroms for a quick perusal of the fragrance counter. I've Boucheron edp on my left and Chanel Gabrielle Essence on my right hand. The Boucheron smells very 80's; loud & proud. The GE by comparison is, as my husband would say, "meh"; rather unsubstantial by comparison. And...I still dislike the flimsy bottle of the Gabrielle fragrance.

    Waves to Whitefluffy, Terry, Joy, Jon, Cazaubon, oh heck..."Hello" & big fat hugs to all of you!
    Small decisions, made consistently, have huge impacts. Think about what you do, be mindful of the results. Accept responsibility for your choices & do not blame others for your behavior. I speak for myself.
