Happy Almost-Friday and happy Valentine's Day! What fragrance are you wearing?
Me: on vacation, day 7. (And I am now way behind on reading comments — I have not finished reading Tuesday's — but I should catch up by the weekend.) Right now I am wearing Weleda Sea Buckthorn Body Oil, so I smell like creamsicle.
Reminder: on 2/15, wear a natural perfume, if you have one. Suggested by chocolatemarzipan8.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2019, where I'll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.

Happy Valentine’s day! ❤
Wearing and smelling great in TDC Rose Poivre from the freebiemeet, thanks ElisaP!
Have a sweet and lovely day everyone! ?
Une Rose Poivrée is very good!
It is! And full bottle or at least a large decant worthy.
Is the TDC really pepper-y?
I don’t find it very peppery. It has a slight touch of pepper and the vetiver is very noticeable. It is more herby than spicy to my nose. It is a beautiful rose scent.
Wearing the glorious Mitsouko. Not vintage, guessing this is the Fléchier version. Wearing perfumes like this I wonder why I have so many bottles.
Tea is MF Parzival again. I’m kind of warming to it, but will likely not repurchase.
I always asked myself the same question. What makes me feel that I need more perfumes that will not be at the same level of the ones I love. I wonder if I will ever stop getting more, no matter how hard I try.
I can totally relate to that. Just finished testing seven Nicolai perfumes and discovered that I didn’t like any of them half as much as what I already have.
I know I will want new perfumes. I have slowed down quite a bit though. I love changing my scents from day to day.
Happy Valentine’s Day. ? That’s such a cute photo for today ?
Thé Noir 29, a gift from my daughter, purchased a couple of years ago when she visited the LL store in Chicago.
I miss those kinds of valentine’s!
I hope everyone has a lovely Valentine’s Day today. I love the cute card! My SOTD is St. Clair Casablanca, because it’s beautiful and romantic, and I shall be wearing pink and red today.
Scent twins! I don’t think St. Clair fragrances are all natural but they are mostly natural, so I think we should at least get partial credit. And in any case we smell great!
Yay for pink and red!
Happy St. Valentine’s Day to all! The predicted “atmospheric river” came through our area just about the time I was selecting my SOTD, and somehow my heart decided on Indochine. No regrets.
I have a sample of that one I need to test. You love it?
I DO love it! You have to like sandalwood, and if you really don’t like cumin this might not be a good choice … but it is gorgeous to/on me.
Thunked a bottle of Yves Rocher’s Neroli this morning and glad I recently got a back up because YR are closing down their UK division next month. I’m probably going to get another bottle of Voile d’Ambre while I can still easily get hold of it. It’s mightily inconvenient of them.
Oh I thought that was discontinued? Maybe it’s just not available on the US site. Either way, you smell so good!
Neroli is still available on the YR French site. I hope they won’t axe it anytime soon. Such a lovely fragrance!
I meant Voile d’Ambre, I love it, but it’s not n on the US site.
Neroli sounds lovely!
Oh no! Do they not do well there, or is it Brexit-related?
I’m assuming it’s Brexit related – timing and all that! But I’m just guessing.
It would make sense.
Scent twin I’m onto my third 50 ml Neroli and have previously emptied a purse spray and travel spray also.
Oh and I have a backup, too. I just get Mr Schneeze to mule some for me from the continent whenever he crosses the Channel. YR are ubiquitous over there. Odd that they don’t do well in the UK.
Neroli is so easy to wear it’s one of my no brainiers.
My bf is traveling tonight, so I’m my own Valentine today
Might treat myself to a pastry from the Italian bakery on my way home.
SOTD: Aroma M Vanilla Hinoki (not natural, I think) + sandalwood essential oil (natural)
Yes! Treat yourself!!!
A pastry sounds like a nice thing to do anytime….but especially today! Enjoy it!
I hope you got something great at the Italian bakery to nosh on!
Continuing my Lush (mostly natural) week.
SOTD is Lush Avocado Co-Wash body spray. Such a bright, zesty green citrus scent for this grey day!
I think I’ll try layering some of my Lush body sprays in spring. Big + Avocado, The Olive Branch + Big, Avocado + Dirty, Avocado + The Olive Branch. They are all fresh scents, so it should work.
Glannys, I got my sample of L’artisan Piment Brulant. It is pretty nice. The chili pepper note is of fresh pepper not dry as I was expecting. However, I like it a lot and it will satisfy my craving until I can get a full bottle. Thank you! ?
So glad you like it! Thanks for reporting.
Yes, it’s definitely fresh. I got a 5 ml decant after emptying my small sample – nice stuff for grey mornings in winter and early spring.
It wasn’t what I expected either but I like it a lot.
I’m wearing Twilly for perhaps the second time since I got my decant. I forgot what it smelled like, but it fit my mood better than Samsara, which I pulled out first.
I like Twilly. You smell good.
I absolutely loathe Valentine’s day, but am happily wafting Fils de Dieu, and forgetting about everything else. This perfume brings me to a seriously happy place.
Sorry you loathe it — I should have had a trigger warning for today’s image
I’m with you re Valentines. Been called a grinch at work this morning and wearing it like a badge of honour!
It’s a mood lifter for me as well. You smell fab??
scent twin today!
Happy Valentine’s and/or Catentine’s, NST! (Zelda and I will be celebrating Catentine’s with a vet visit later this afternoon, tainting the holiday for her forever.)
SOTD is Olfactive Studio Lumiere Blanche, the first fragrance I ever gave my boyfriend. I’ve always thought that its quiet quirkiness represents him very well.
Happy Valentines Day ! I am wearing Lancome Magie Noire and drinking a cup of green tea.
You smell great!
Indeed you smell fab.
SOTD: Vintage Houbigant Ideál
With a few drops of Tonka Imperial.
This vintage beauty is a lot like Shalimar to my nose and the added Tonka gives it oomph
my outfit of the day:
A red Valentino Sleeveless dress, with a low hem line, so it flares towards my knees. I picked it up at a secondhand store for 98 bucks.
Won’t you be my Valentino? ?
I’m so jelly of our Valentino find!!! You look and smell great.
You look fabulous! And, you smell great too.
I love vintage finds, well done!
Hahaha I’m sure Antony will be your valentino. You look stunning!
In celebration of Valentine’s Day I’m wearing a rose, a weird one: Amouage Opus X. Have a great day everyone!
I didn’t get through all the comments yesterday, but was a PSA posted about Twisted Lily 20% off? Only goes till 10 pm ET tonight. Code is LOVEHURTS22. Might be helpful if someone knows they want to do a split on something in their inventory.
Sweet, thanks LizzieB!
Noticed a bunch of Tauers in the specials category, so…..20% off + specials = good opportunity.
I’m in Silences, and drinking the Christmas tea from MF. Bought the tea at Scent Bar in LA. ❤️
Happy Valentine’s Day, all!
Yikes, thanks to flopper for the decant of Silences!
Also a member of the Silences fan club!
That is a nice tea and a very nice fragrance.
Happy Valentines Day! I’m in Dilettante today and wearing a hot pink midi length dress with a v-neck. One of my hubby’s favs!
This is my first time in Dilettante and I think I’d like it better sprayed that dabbed, but it’s still lovely! Making me wish for spring in a serious way though.
Dilettante is so good! It’s not just orange blossoms – it’s the whole tree.
I’m also a fan of midi-length dresses. I don’t think I need to own another miniskirt or dress ever again, lol.
I love midi length but they’re hard for me because I am SUPER short so sometimes they fall weird on me. But this one is just right!
I’m not a dress person except when we go to Renfest, but am still quite pleased that midi dresses/skirts are back in vogue. ?
Me too! I got a cute olive green and gold polka dot one from Boden – i am obsessed with that store (no affliation).
I never know what kind of shoes to wear with midi dresses in winter – would knee high boots look strange?
I think they would look great! Maybe a lacy blouse and a motorcycle jacket to tough it up a bit?
Hope people see this, but has anyone sniffed Zoologist T-Rex yet? I’m lemming that bottle so bad! I need mini reviews!
Currently single and not in a romantic mood. About to revisit Lonesome Rider today. I remember not caring for it too much but want to see if it has grown on me any. I have had a few that I didn’t like when I first tried but love now.
Hope you like Lonesome Rider better today. I really love it. There are so many scents that I did not like them first try and then they suddenly click for some reason.
Happy Valentine’s Day, my fragranced friends. Or Discount Chocolate Day Eve, if that’s more your bag.
I’m wearing Aftelier Wild Roses. It’s the most traditionally pretty of the ones I’ve tried this week, and maybe it makes me basic but I like it the best. Soft rose with freshly pureed peppers drizzled over the top for some zing. It’s making me smile, but with Aftelier’s pricing, not happy enough to buy!
You nailed my plans for tomorrow: drugstore run to scoop up some discounted candy.
Wishing you luck that the good stuff doesn’t sell out today
I work next door to a CVS. I need to run over and see what candy I can grab up!
Ha! That make me laugh ?
I fully support all celebrations of Discount Chocolate Day and its Eve…
Sounds like quite a few NSTers are going to be celebrating Discount Chocolate Day!
I liked Wild Roses too, but like you, not enough to buy a FB. I own three Aftelier scents in FB–Secret Garden, Alchemy, and Bergamoss (the limited edition EdP from a few years ago). Secret Garden is mostly floral to my nose, with some darker and “dirtier” notes in the background, as if you were walking in a real garden, with the scents of the soil, leaves, stems, etc. mingling with the scents of the flowers.
Nicolai Kiss Me Intense in honor of Valentine’s Day which we mostly ignore. Went to Twisted Lily to pick up a30ml of Nicolai Neroli Intense and it had sold out since yesterday afternoon. Perfume gods keeping my low buy low, I guess.
It looks available on the website. Maybe they just didn’t have in store. There’s the 20% off thing going on.
Oops. My bad. I misread your post so looked at wrong scent.
How is Kiss Me Intense? I’m a fan of almond, but this says bitter almond. How would you describe?
I don’t really know the difference between almond and bitter almond in notes. I don’t get bitterness from this one. Not too sweet – the florals temper the sweet foody notes.
I did the same and was sad and relieved at the same time, lol. I’m halfway through my 30ml bottle in not even a month!!
I’m sampling Anima Dulcis, from Lucasai’s Magical Traveling Box of Perfume. So far, so lemming.
I own that one and really love it, though I’m not often in the mood to wear it. When I am, it feels so good and comfy-warm-sexy.
It’s cold and rainy this morning, so I’m in need of the comfy-warm-sexy!
Have fun with the box!
Morning all! SOTD is Hermes Eau des Merveilles, had a bottle stashed at my work desk. We had a hectic start – first, a message regarding campus power outage and subsequent closure and then we reopened so I had to scramble (trip over cats) to get dressed, lunch ready and out the door in 15 minutes!
I love Weleda products, I should try their Sea Buckthorn Body Oil. I started using Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil and it’s done wonders for my parched winter skin, I bet it’s great in a body product.
You smell so good!
I love the Sea Buckthorn body oil, especially in summer and at the beach (where I think Robin is now!). I don’t love the Sea Buckthorn shower cream nearly as much; just finished a tube of it and won’t repurchase. But the texture, scent, and effects of the body oil are wonderful to me.
Yes I am (at the beach)!
But I also do adore the shower cream, I am probably on my 4th bottle, and I finally bought the body lotion too.
Oh, I think I need to try this in lotion also! I am feeling rather alligator-like these days…
We don’t really celebrate Valentines Day as a separate event as it is so close to my husband’s birthday (Feb 10).
I started out the day in AA Calling All Angels. It had faded out so I have layered on some Rosenlust.
You smell celestial and earthy!
SOTD Taur l’eau
I do not think this is for me, I’ve tried it on I’m hot and cold weather, it’s sort of dense in me.
Kids are off from school ? just as well they are all sick. I’m hiding in the bathroom trying to muster motivation to organize the house, or least clear some pathways.
Hope you find the courage to come out of the bathroom soon.
I agree with you that Tauer L’Eau is very dense. Still debating if I should keep it or not.
I hide in the bathroom from my kids all the time! I hope they feel better
Last night I just got home from a very pleasant birthday mini-vacation (and it was a miracle because many flights were delayed or canceled due to weather), and today back to the regular schedule. But Valentine’s Day makes coming back better, and I’m off to the office wearing my traditional for this holiday black with pink and read hearts tights and de Rosine’s Rose d’Amour (just to be clear: I’m fully dressed, but the rest of the clothes isn’t comment-worthy). Will be organizing a happy hour in the office with chocolates and champagne for co-workers later today.
Happy Valentine’s Day to those who celebrates (and some temporary color blindness to those who is tired of all these colors )!
Happy belated birthday!
Thank you, yasmina!
So glad you added that clarification! I was starting to wonder what kind of office you worked in!
Super cute avatar! ?
That’s my cat Willow!
Knowing people’s vivid imagination I just thought I’d clarify
So sweet that you organize a champagne and chocolate happy hour!
Someone has to – otherwise nothing happens in our office
Happy belated birthday, Undina! ?
Thank you, Nancy!
Happy belated Birthday Undina! Did you wear a special perfume for the occasion?
Thank you, Jalapeno!
For my birthday I wore OJ Ta’if.
Wow, I would have asked someone to please arrange something for MY homecoming ?
Glad you had a good time!
Nah, not in my office. Nothing ever happened there until I joined the company
I just had to wear CdG Play Red because of the heart on the bottle. I like that Valentine, too. So cute!
Great perfume match!
I’m wearing Hindu Honeysuckle again, it’s a great no-brainer and I did not have brains this morning. You all smell very romantic!
Everybody needs at least one great no-brainer scent.
Trying out Music For a While this morning. It skews a bit too dude for me but the pineapple note is very fun and cheery.
Too dude is right! I would like it on some man, but that man is not my husband, and it was indeed “too dude” for me.
I enjoyed it, and found it perfectly unisex. It reminded me a little of Nicolaï’s Maharanih. Haven’t tried them side by side though.
Wearing L’Heure Exquise. I too celebrate Feb 15 aka My Thrifty Valentine…
laughing at My Thrifty Valentine
You smell awesome.
We are celebrating Saturday- even thriftier!
You smelled wonderful today AnnieA!
Beaufort’s Couer de Noire
…and the violets, orris, and cool dust of Heeley’s Iris de Nuit after the gym.
Never sniffed it, but love the name!
I am so impressed that u read all the comments Robin!
I am off project but will participate tomorrow. Today i am in what has been a staple combo this week: mohur plus virgile
I do not necessarily read every single comment slowly word for word! But I do at least skim, and answer questions, and make sure nobody is being mean to anybody, etc. People here are 99.9% nice but I do think part of the reason for that is that we read and respond to the comments and try to keep people from arguing with each other or otherwise not keeping to the comment policy.
Hopefully people are all being extra nice this week because I am being extra slow
We are all on our best behavior don’t worry! NST is one of few oases of civility and thoughtful left on the internets – thanks for your continuing cultivation of that culture!
I managed to miss Valentines Day completely, didn’t even register that yesterday was Valentines Day until just now, and this post. The weird thing is that I went to town yesterday and couldn’t work out why the perfume counters were busy with youngish male shoppers standing around the Mon Guerlain display with Angelina Jolie’s face. Apart from that there were no hints of Valentines Day anywhere, that I registered. Just tons of cruise ship passengers wandering aimlessly.
Foraged my first blackberries from the forest yesterday. They were really tart and neither dog would eat theirs so I may wait a few more days. The manuka smells incredible now , sweet and sugary with a hint of rose, from honey dew I guess.
Wearing La Violette ( Goutal) which is very pretty and sweet. Happy Valentines Day!
My husband and I mostly ignore Valentine’s Day. We ignore quite a few holidays and the only reason I always know the holidays now is that I’m doing the scent of the day polls
Blackberries, how lovely! My husband had his first fresh coconut water today.
Blackberries are SO good when ripe, and SO tart when they aren’t!
Wearing DSH Slinky Carnation since I love it. It’s not 100% natural but it’s probably in the 90s and has natural musk, natural civet, natural ambergris and other wonderful naturals in it
I am wearing Cathexis I’m No Angel perfume oil that was from a company called ProductBody.Notes are rose,chocolate, and black tea.I received this as an extra in a swap several years ago and loved it instantly.Unfortunately,the company that made it was not in business by then so I have used it for special occasions.
Happy Valentines Day to everyone in whatever way you celebrate it or ignore it! I try to use the day to do at least one RAOK for someone.That makes my heart feel good.
I love RAOK. So kind of you!
??! Keep it up with the RAOKs!
Wearing April Aromatics Bohemian Spice and not really feeling it. I can’t pinpoint why. Oh well, I’ll move on to another scent when I get home from work.
I’d like to send my decant to someone in the US. It’s got about 3.5 – 4ml left. First person to reply here gets it!
Can I?! I’ve never sniffed any April Aromatics!
Yes, of course! Send me an email to my username at gmail.
Sometimes “Nope!” is all you need to know about a perfume.
Happy Valentine’s Day if you’re celebrating!
I’m in Rose Anonyme today.
And remember – love yourself!
You smell great! I love Rose Anonyme!
Great advice! And you smell fab!
You smell great, and that’s good advice.
That’s a good post all around!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all you perfumed people!
SOTD is SB Gypsy. Thanks to LisaD for the PSA a while back ??
Today is tax day, so not sure if I will be crying or laughing later.
Stoked for a couple I follow on the IG. @dirtypawslife vanned from Barrow, Alaska all the way down to Ushuaia, Argentina with their four legged child Ginger. No affiliation, just happy to see people succeed.
It’s raining again. We are about to dig into banana cinnamon French toast and coffee, so I’m not too sad?
Love to support you in smelling good, Deva!
I appreciate your smell good support! ?
Can you please send me some banana cinnamon french toast and coffee?
On its way! ?
Ugh, best of luck with the taxes!
Well, it’s not as good as last year, but at least I don’t have to pay, so I’ll take it!
The poor tax gal I go to was so exhausted I felt bad for her. I know she can’t wait until April 15 is in her rearview mirror.
Happy Valentine’s Y’all!
I always NEED to wear a gourmand on Valentine’s (it’s the vibe I’m looking for), so I’m wearing Ganache Lemon Eclair. 6 hours in and I’m still smelling it, which is better than I remembered!
HUGS to all of you…..Valentine’s isn’t just for lovers! It’s a day to show EVERYONE that you care about ’em!
Gourmands are perfect for Valentine’s!
Hugs back at you! That perfume sounds really delish!
SotD = Tauer Au Coeur du Desert
In the heart ? of the desert, indeed!
Swoon, I adore this scent. laddm is a favorite of mine, acdd is just as wonderful. Love the name too ?
Happy hearts day to each of you.
❤️♥️❤️ You are loved.
You smell great.
thanks, KellyC. Au Coeur du Desert has kept me smiling all day.
❤️ you back, tiffanie ❣️
woot-woot! and it feels great
Tauer is a great one for restoring perfume passion!
ACdD is gorgeous stuff! ? ? And thanks for the reminder that Valentine’s Day doesn’t necessarily have to be about romantic love.
Love is love is love . . .
Fils de Dieu, because i think Deva wore it yesterday.
Had a pizza dinner with the boyfriend in a small restaurant near his working place and got to drink the wine. He had to drive the car back home, so happy Valentines Day to all!
Sounds like an all around exceptional evening! ✌?
Sounds like a good evening to me!
That sounds like a great way to de-stress after work! ?
I’m wearing Noir de Noir body spray for that roses & chocolates vibe.
I almost did NdN today. Probably will tonight, it’s my husband’s fav. You smell super great!
Rose Boheme by Providence Perfume. Finally on theme for the cp. The longevity is amazing for a natural.
And happy Valentine’s Day! ♥️?
You smell great! I almost wore that one today and wish I had.
RB is probably my favorite from PP and my favorite Rose/patch scent during
I feel the same way you do about Bohemian Spice. It didn’t work for me but I thought that I would love it.
Petunia, I was in Ulta last night and found a great lipstick named “Petunia.” Beautiful shade that I snatched up, but then cheaped out and instaed bought 3 of the new Maybelline “Made for All” colors instead. “Petunia” was from a new line by Bare Essentials/Bare Minerals in case you want your namesake as you lippie. Beautiful color and texture.
I need to look that up pronto! Thanks for the rec.
You do smell beautiful! I think I have a smidge left still. I’ll have to hunt later.
Aww thanks. Sometimes it isn’t easy to find those tiny samples amongst the sample sea.
I celebrated Valentine’s Day 2 nights ago by watching 2 Charlie Brown Valentine’s cartoons. They really nail the whole humanity thing, don’t they?
I’m wearing many sprays of PdN Neroli Intense and it still dies down pretty fast. But whatever is emanating from my collar smells super nice!
Poor Charlie Brown. He usually doesn’t make out very well in these situations. I hope he got a few valentines, especially from the little red-haired girl.
Yeah, he doesn’t ? No, not from the little red haired girl. He got a used card from Lucy or Sally, and they made sure to tell him they recycled one they got to give to him. Poor guy…
Aw! I missed the Charlie Brown Valentine’s Day cartoon this year.
Happy Valentine’s Day dear nst valentines. I’m happily divorced and not into dating yet so will you all be mine?!
Tonight I will be doing what I do every Thursday night – Tai chi class with a bunch of adorable retirees. Maybe they will be my valentines too!
Sooooo I finished testing the Nicolai perfumes from the discovery set. Turns out I like Patchouli Intense much less than I thought and I liked some of the others more. So yesterday I agonized over the 20 percent off at twisted lily – deciding finally to get a small bottle of cap neroli just to discover they were out of stock. So I ordered a bottle from beauty habit instead. I’m testing CN I found out that if a decent amount is applied then there is a radiant juicy neroli note that lasts forever in the dry down. Well worth it!
SOTD Ambre Sultan. I’ve been working in the studio all day and Sultan really puts me in a calm headspace
Now I’m off to the coffee shop for free WiFi, a hot chocolate and some kind of chocolate bakery item?
Aww, tai chi with retired folks sounds fab. I taught a tai chi class many moons ago, and most of the students were retirees. They were so sweet.
Yes they are!
Isn’t it funny how sometimes sample love turns out to be just a heavy sample like?
Off to see Hamilton this evening. I will be wearing Unum Lavs and Rose 31.
Have a great time!
In Jolie Laide again today to stay in the natural CP. Cléo de 5 à 7. Not my favorite at the opening. A sourness that makes me wonder if top notes have gone off or something. It’s definitely softened the past few minutes, and I’m liking it more. I get the leather now a bit. And it is making me think of Agnes Varda…she’s a charmer.
I laughed. My husband wished me happy Valentine’s Day when he got up. Then he later asked, “are we exchanging cards or just letting it pass?” Now he’s gone downtown to a late afternoon movie with a friend. I’m laughing because I’m the one through the years who has made it a point to declare that VD is NOT a gift-giving occasion. And, because we had a cat who loved to chew flowers and another who liked to knock them over and play in the water, we never did that either. We are duds.
Of course it’s a gift giving occasion. Even half-Valentine’s Day is a gift giving occasion!
Ha! When I read VD is not a gift giving occasion, I didn’t immediately think it stood for Valentine’s day ?
I’m so dense sometimes!
I maintain that Valentine’s Day IS an eating out occasion–but then I maintain that there are 365 eating out occasions per year (366 in leap years).
Tonight, it’s an ordering in occasion?
We ate out at a local ramen and sushi restaurant. They were pretty busy for a Thursday.
Love the card! Happy Valentines to this very sweet group!
Went out for Chinese last night with a dear friend that’s as far as valentines goes.
Raining, raining, raining all day.
Am wearing Memo Tigers’ Nest based on Kevin’s review last week.
Didn’t smell anything for a while and then whoa I am in love with myself here.
20% off atTwisted Lily, not to enable or anything ???
bought it this morning:)
I’m also splitting if you just want a decant.
Happy Valentines to you apsara! ?
SOTD = Sonoma Scent Studio Equestrian
Sweet apple hay incense leather – not all natural and has a large % of naturals. Apples are red, right? So it also meets my Red Package challenge ?
In other news, I bought Memo Tiger’s Nest with the Twisted Lily lovehurts22 20% discount and plan to split off 35 – 40 mLs. Anyone interested? I will post this during the Splitmeet. I have not worked out the cost yet but it will of course be at cost.
Yes ME! Loved it!
Happy Vacation Robin!
I did a Balenciaga’s Rosabotanical layered with SB 1997 incense this morning as I was craving Tauer’s Incense Rose (and don’t have even a dabber), what a nice juicy rose this is!! And the incense is long lasting. I liked it. I could still smell it after my bike ride.
SOTE: Le Cri layered over Le Labo’s Itis 39 body lotion. I feel dressed up!!
Thank you AngelaB!
Running a little late today! Guess I was enjoying every last bit of sun that I could today. Happy Galentine’s Day, or Valentine’s Day, should you celebrate. Tomorrow is “Happy Discount Chocolate Day!” ?
SOTD = Tauer Une Rose Chypree, from the sample stash. Since I had thought of this the first time I tried Olympic Orchids Ballets Rouges, I decided to wear it today. Yes, the two scents are related. Not quite as closely as I first thought, however. Yes to roses! ???
I’m so happy that discount chocolate day falls on payday this year!
Whoo hoo! Even better!
The AM perfume applications had worn down, so now I have applied SSS Velvet Rose. Not all natural, but on theme for Valentine’s Day. This may be my second favorite rose perfume of all time (after Shiseido White Rose). I wish I had bought more than a 5 ml travel spray before SSS closed down.
The Velvet Rose sounds like it is something special.
It is. I didn’t realize how special it is until I tried a lot of other rose perfumes and found most of them lacking in some way. I need to try Velvet Rose and AA Rosenlust side by side for comparison.
Happy Valentine’s day everyone! My sotd was Moulin Rouge, thanks to a lovely Nster?, I like the way it smells vintagy, but not dated. At first spray, it reminded me of Chantilly, I think. I’m off tomorrow and will be hitting the grocery store and pharmacy for chocolate!
Good luck with the Great Chocolate Hunt tomorrow! ??
Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m wearing some vintage Chanel No.19 edt tonight. We don’t really do much for Valentine’s Day either; as a rule we are keep things mostly low-key. I’m looking forward to get some chocolate tomorrow as well! I will have to sneak out at lunch to stock up.
My co-worker friend is coming over tomorrow night so we can binge-watch the latest season of Outlander. We pvr’d the entire season. She’s bringing the wine and we’ll order the pizza!
That sounds fun! I also like to let the whole season of Outlander run so I can binge it. Oh, and you smell amazing in No. 19.
