What a great giveaway, thanks for the chance! I haven’t tried any of these.
I’d like to see a Friday daytime scent, a green floral that helps you power through the last day of the work week with a little patchouli and incense in the base as a reminder that you’re almost there.
I’ve been dying to try the Saturday of this duo ever since I heard about it.
I would love a lavender patchouli with some citrus on top. For anyway of the week, to be worn under stressful circumstances.
Thanks for such a great giveaway!
I would like to see a scent for Monday, because it is really hard to start another week, especially when you have to be back at work. It would have to something cheerful and comfy at the same time.
Oh I’d love to try both of these, especially Sunday. I’d like to see her do Wednesday. Something to power us through the remaining days of the week. Bright, fresh and uplifting, maybe a sweet citrus scent rounded out with vanilla or almond?
Currently I’m going mega cozy in Sage Onyx, combined with warm slippers as I finish my house tasks.
Thanks for the chance to enter, Robin! I hope Ari does Friday (Night) next, as a bubbly fizzy party scent. That could be great.
Good afternoon, and thank you. I’ll also vote for Friday, and a cheerful lavender/citrus.
I would love to win those, because they are not easy to sample in Germany. I think i would like a scent for monday. Something comforting with a little incense would be nice.
Maybe Friday night should be beeswax for the Sabbath Candles and incense?
Friday! Perhaps a riff on The Cure’s song “Friday I’m in Love”…something ultra-romantic, with notes of roses and vanilla. Something that feels like huddling under a cashmere blanket with your favorite person in the world.
Tuesday, of course! I’m dying to know what Monday’s ugly little sister would smell like.
Thank you for this amazing giveaway Robin!
I’m also thinking Friday, something with a citrusy floral, like a lemony rose. Anyway something to put on Friday morning to get through until the weekend.
Thanks Robin and Arielle!
Wednesday’s perfume would be about balance. The base notes would be anchored with the weight of the past, the middle notes would reflect satisfaction with one’s accomplishments, and the top notes would inspire energy and optimism.
I have been dying to try Sunday because I’ve heard so many good things about it from various perfumistas. And because I think ScentSpirit’s idea for a Friday scent is so brilliant, I’m going to second a Friday Sabbath/end of the week scent. I’d love it to be spicy because I love spicy scents the most. Arielle is Jewish so maybe that would appeal to her, but of course she needs to find her own inspiration!
Oh, this is so great and something I’ve been eyeing!
I suggest Monday. I envision it will be all business like, perhaps, Chanel 19 except 1) it will reflect Ari’s aesthetic and, 2) it will contain a note of comfort for the wearer who faces the work week ahead.
Ooooooh neat! I’d like to see Ari do Monday. Either a coffee and incense scent, or maybe coffee and patchouli. Something that will wake a person up and then have a calming, grounding note.
Since she seems to going in order I think Monday should be next, something bright and cheerful (maybe citrus and neroli).
What a lovely giveaway! Friday seems a natural choice, but I’ll go with Thursday. The day that gets no attention, no songs for Thursday, no movies or poems but a day we all get just as regularly as all the others.
Thank you Robin for this giveaway!
I vote for Thursday… something pretty and soft with lilac, vanilla and sandalwood.
I’d like to see Thursdays. Thursdays aren’t usually very special or celebrated, but surprising things can happen on seemingly average days! So it would start off gentle then BAM change and surprise you.
There’s a teashop where I live called Friday Afternoon, and I absolutely love the owner— she has synesthesia and bases a lot of her flavors on how words smell.
If I were basing a fragrance on a day of the week, it would be based on the smell of that particular teashop— aged oolongs, orange peel, oil paints, bergamot (the fruit) and bergamot (the teashop dog).
One vote for Tuesday. Best day to execute plans of revenge! Read that somewhere…
Would love this…
I think I’m in the Monday camp. Something uplifting and energizing,
What a lovely giveaway! And anywhere in the world is wonderful.
I would love to try Saturday because my daughter was born on a Saturday.
As my other daughter was born on a Thursday I would love a translation of that day into a scent. It could have the smell of motherhood…if such thing is possible.
How nice! The next scent should be Monday. It should smell like clouds and sadness.
What a nice giveaway! I’ll go for Monday with the smell of quiet desperation?, or something similarly melancholy and subdued.
What a lovely giveaway! I vote for a Friday fragrance, as Friday nights are the best part of the week. How about a fun night out party scent?
Friday or Monday? hmm, one of those two days makes sense to me but which one to choose . . . I think Monday smells like a soft floral with a comfy base of warm woods. Thank you, Arielle and Robin, it’s really fun to think about what a day of the week could smell like.
Oooh — great giveaway! I like the idea of a Monday scent with coffee, or maybe citrus to wake me up!
Thanks for the generous draw! As a teen, my favorite was Friday night because there would always be a local dance with a live band somewhere in my locale. The excitement and anticipation was almost too much to bear. I remember wearing Love’s Fresh Lemon to many of those events, so something to evoke lemon, teen spirit, and hormones would be great!!
I haven’t tried either of these, thank you for the chance!
I think Monday would probably be the next scent in the series. Since tea has already been done, I’m thinking either a coffee scent or orange citrus.
This is a little off-beat but I’d love to see a fragrance interperetation of the Thursday that starts off the Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – earthy, grassy notes for the muddy garden, a whiff of diesel smoke from the bulldozers etc. Possibly not a good fit for Arielle’s aesthetic but could be fun
Tuesday! “Mondays Ugly Little Sister”!
I would hope for an earthy Friday scent, probably heavy on the Vetiver. My synesthesia has always seen Friday as green, so I guess the grass association and comfort I get from Vetiver make me crave this!
My feedback would be for a Friday scent next.I am thinking sandalwood, clove and rose notes with possibly a steamed milk or bourbon vanilla note to smooth it all out.Thank you for the giveaway!
I thought I read somewhere that there was a coffee-related Monday on the way. If not…THAT. I haven’t totally loved a coffee scent I’ve tried, none are coffee-ish enough, and I think Ari could nail this for us!
I could see a Monday scent and along with others here think a coffee note would fit nicely.
I’d love to see a bright and cheerful orange blossom for Friday or a deeply calming lavender blend for Monday
Oh man! I am wiping a lil drool off my mouth from this give away lol. Saturday is bomb and I just ran outta my sample:(. I have been so wanting to try Sunday and I am sure it’s fabulous. Saturday is the perfect passionfruit..love it and drained my two samples quickly. My birthday is early January too:). I hope to be the lucky birthday girl for this one lol.
For the next perfume, I am thinking a nice, jasmine and rice Thursday scent:).
I think I am the second vote for Tuesday. It is often the day I am most tired (my Monday’s tend to be overscheduled), so I would want something soothing, a little bit restful, and also energizing. Lavender and coffee? Doesn’t sound too great to me, but may be a good perfumer could make it work. Or perhaps anise and coffee?
On weekends I reach for scents that are too assertive for work wear (I am with students and colleagues all the time during the week; one of my French colleagues rocks her Guerlains all week long, but I lack both her élan and her rank).
Thanks for the draw. I am casting my vote for Sunday, something pleasant and breezy and relaxing (kinda like my BBW Plumeria. reminds me of a tropical island, sigh, if only….).
I would love a joyful Friday perfume.
Another vote for Thursday. It should balance the sensibility of a weeknight with the longing for weekend festivities. Something nice and staid in the top notes, something raunchy and a little office-inappropriate in the drydown.
What about a Wednesday perfume? Something to power us through to the weekend. I’m thinking an orange vanilla would be really nice. Thanks for the great give away!
I’m going with Thursday as well! And agree with Koyel, something almost sexy enough for a weekend, but not quite. ?
I would like to see a Monday scent. Something elegant like a woody iris. (I need more iris like I need a hole in my head, but I can’t help it).
Thanks for the drawing!
My favorite weekend fragrance lately is Chanel No. 5 body oil! Thanks for the draw Robin!
Ooo, hope I’m not too late! I’d love to see a Thursday scent. I don’t know what it should be but it’s my favorite day of the week!
