Sechseläuten is cancelled, but it's still Banana Day and Weed Day. What fragrance are you wearing?
I'm in a lovely fragrance I'd pretty much forgotten, Strange Invisible Perfumes Likewise. (And I cannot find it on their website, but PSA, they are currently doing 20% off and free shipping in the US.)
Reminder: on 4/24, wear a perfume by Santa Maria Novella, Sonoma Scent Studio, Smell Bent, S-Perfumes or Strange Invisible Perfumes if you have one. Partial credit for any other small-ish brand that starts with the letter S.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2020, where I'll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.

SotD = Grandiflora Queen of the Night
Smells like lilacs to me. Also a little soapy, must be the aldehydes, then a lot of musk plus pepper and loads of other notes.
Woke up super early this morning, the first time since WFH started over a month ago. I feel a nap will be coming on later today.
Happy Schmunday, NSTers.
also Paris is nine hours ahead of me here, so as some people say, “It’s 4:20 somewhere.” I think I’ll have a croissant.
My husband said he woke up at 5:30, so it must be catching! Do take a nap.
had a nap – 30 minutes – it was perfect.
Jealous of your nap
These kids don’t nap anymore
my kids napped until they went to Kindergarten, it was a nice thing, then they “paid me back” with sleepless nights as teenagers. Love them no matter what tho!
that is interesting, I didn’t get any lilacs on Friday.
Great scent by the way!
aw, thank you, Austenfan! I will wear Queen of the Night again soon and re-sniff. It’s a sample, and I’m thinking it will go in the “pass” pile.
I love this one! You smell SO beautiful.
thanks, AngelaB! I adore the opening – aldehydes + florals = happy
You smell great!
thank you, lucasai, Queen of the Night is lovely.
I do not have any scents from these houses. Actually, I have only two scents that qualify for partial credit, and I will save them for Thursday and Friday.
Wearing Kenzo Parfum d’Ete. Spring flowers in the bottle.
I love Kenzo perfumes. Such pretty fragrances…. I remember working at Dillard’s back in the 1990s when this was first released, I have the original leaf-shaped bottle.
While my favorites at the time were Shiseido Feminite du Bois and Angel, I found the delicate florals over a woody base compelling.
I love both the old and new leaf bottles, although I know only the new version. Frankly, it was the bottle that first made me interested in Parfum d’Ete, but then I grew to like the fragrance itself.
I used to wear several Kenzo flowers about 15 years ago – Flower, Parfum d’Ete, L’Eau par Kenzo… Now I wear Elephant and Parfum d’Ete (again!).
Happy Monday all! My SOTD is Tatiana by Diane von Furstenberg bath oil, just a few dabs. I love the white floral notes – I can’t pick any one out over the other, but Fragrantica lists notes as: hyacinth, orange blossom, gardenia, jasmine, narcissus, rose, tuberose, musk, sandalwood, and amber.
I love this perfume, it was a favorite in H.S., but I have a good 10 sneezes before my poor nose acclimates to the tuberose.
not sure if it’s the power of suggestion or my perfume, but I just sneezed!
I love tuberose, and you smell beautiful.
Thanks! Sorry about the sneeze though! My sinuses don’t care for big white florals, apparently!
You smell heavenly, magical, beautiful, timeless.
I adore this stuff and have a teeny decant that I treasure.
I wish that I could follow you around ALL day.
Thanks! I think I got it on sale for $12 for four ounces (and free shipping) at the last Fragrancenet sale.
I wore the HELL out of this. Enjoy!
Me too! I really am so happy to have this back in my rotation!
I just want you to know that I think of you whenever I am having a restless sleep I add some Shalimar body powder.
Works like a charm!
Hi Lovestosmellgood! That’s awesome! I’m telling you, it’s such a good sleep aid.
Lancome Magie Noire formerly came in a body powder, it was so glorious. I wish I could find a tub somewhere…
Mondays ..like Tuesday..like Fridays
Having a dance party with some Brazilian music…we are rocking out to this song https://youtu.be/stYJkLlNmsY
Black and white cropped sweater with a large African inspired necklace.
SOTD Prada Infusion d’iris
fantastic on all counts! happy whateverday.
Have you smelled this Prada?
yes! Infusion d’Iris is one of my most favorite scents. I put my bottle on my night table so I will remember to wear some this evening.
It’s a cold-ish, grey and rainy day here in these ancient mountains. The pines are dripping and the dogwood blooms have been beaten to the ground by the rain. No sign of my fat woodchuck friend this morning either. Everything seems to be sleeping.
I’m wearing SL Chergui to warm things ups. Good day for chores and other mundane and boring activities.
I had a box delivery the other day. The postal guy came up to the porch for about 2 steps as I opened the door. He never delivers here, so he was asking me how long I’d be staying so he had an idea of how long to add me to his route. I told him about three months and that I was a travel nurse working at the local hospital.
I never saw anyone move so fast! He did a 180 as he was walking up the steps, ran back to his mail car, throwing over his shoulder, “Thanks for what you do!” and kicked up gravel as he hit the gas in his hurry to be gone. Pretty sure I will never see him again. He’ll probably leave packages down by the mailbox from now on…?
I was participating in a Zoom get-together last night with some colleagues, and they were telling me about this sort of weird backlash against health care folks. I guess the bright side is that people are taking this seriously (I mean, when we’re not talking about the other people, who are going around throwing parties and/or protesting).
Wow, backlash against health care folks? How odd, but who knows what is going thru people’s minds lately.
I know, right? People are so crazy. Can’t wait until this ban is over so I can do EXTREME social distancing! Forget the 6 foot rule, I’m ready for a 6 mile rule! ?
I hear you!! Stay safe and well.
I’m as happy as a clam on the couch with SmokeyToes, a few good books, some tea, and my Youtube fitness videos.
Yes please.I’ll sign the petition,especially for when I’m at the Supermarket.
Deva, I know that it’s not really funny, but the way you tell it really is. I can see this guy so clearly in my mind.
Kinda like RoadRunner?? Meep Meep!!
Yep, it’s totally funny! At least he’s motivated to keep social distancing in play, unlike other idiots who just can’t stand to cooperate for five more minutes because their “rights” are being abused…?
Do not – I repeat, do not – get me started.
Ok, I won’t! ?
LOL! I bet you’re right about him leaving your packages at the mailbox. But it is sad the reports I’ve heard about abusive behaviour towards health care workers. People can be so rude and ignorant.
I didn’t take it as a negative. I just thought it was funny. I don’t blame hime, to be honest. Although, I’m hoping he had hand sanitizer in the car. He wasn’t wearing a mask either, but of course I didn’t bVe time to mention that because he was like greased lightning ? I
Deva, you have a new superpower, the ability to make people move at the speed of light (if they are getting out of your way)! I strongly suggest you abuse this power at every possible moment.
If only! ?
Just remember, there’s also more appreciation than every before, for example:
Oh, it’s very nice of people to clap. But it would be nicer if they could throw PPE to those that really need it. It could be a new take on Mardi Gras- instead of beads, throw N95’s and PPE! So fun! And just for the heck of it, why don’t we add test kits?!
Oh yeah, we have none of the above …?
It’s not fair, Deva. I’m sorry.
poor guy! sorry about his knee-jerk reaction.
Thank you for doing what you do
I’m wearing Frédéric Malle En Passant again. Swoon: the perfect spring perfume. My travel size bottle is lasting for years because I only wear it for a few weeks each year.
Oh yum, I should wear that this week.
Yes, this one is all about spring. You smell lovely.
Mmm banana day..I do love a good banana and peanut better sandwich:). Or strawberry banana anything:).
I ordered from my favorite tea company, Celestial Seasonings. Thought I would support them as they have me through their soothing teas over the years. I am looking forward to trying Lemon Lavender Lane:).
Tea of the mornin has been Watermelon Lime Zinger, CS.
I am commando atm. Other than drying hand sanitizer..I am getting man hands lately from all the cleaning and chemicals I put on my hands. Lol.
There will never be another show like Seinfeld ?
I can not believe it’s been off the air for 22 years! And yet almost weekly I will quote it to relate it to something going on in life.
Monday again. The busiest day of my week. At least, though, I’ve only got another 3 of these to go before my official summer starts (I teach at a community college). I tell you, I can hardly wait. Transitioning some of my classes to online delivery has kept me hopping, even more than usual.
In other good news, today is my birthday, which means I am that much closer to retirement! Yay! I’ve got 4 Zoom meetings scheduled throughout the day, which sucks, but I plan to be extra fragrant for all of them. Not 30 sprays fragrant (I bow down), but at least 4 hefty spritzes. I’m thinking something bright and cheery, like Ciel d’Opale, or Osmanthe Yunnan. Maybe Ciel d’Opale in the morning, then Osmanthe Yunnan in the afternoon. Or, I could get with the program and find my Strange Invisible Perfume’s Magazine Street, which I got in a swap with one of you fabulous folks a few years back. Appropriately celebratory.
Happy Happy Birthday!?
Thanks, lillyjo! I’m off to get some more caffeine (I’m thinking a triple espresso), and start my day….
Happy Lisa D day!
Happy Happy Day!!! Birthday wishes to you!
Happy birthday LisaD, and yay for summer vacation!
Happy Birthday! Maybe a different fragrance per call!
Happy birthday to you!
I always assumed Magazine Street was a fall or winter perfume, but I found recently that it works very well on cool spring day.
Happy One Year Closer to Retirement!!!
Happy birthday, LisaD! ???
Happy Birthday LisaD!
Many happy returns.
Happy birthday !!
Happy Birthday LisaD!
Happy Birthday ?????!
Happy birthday! ???
Happy Birthday to you!
Hope it is a great day!
Happy Scented Birthday LisaD! ????
Happy Birthday! Hope you are having a wonderful day??
Happy Birthday LisaD!
Krizia Uomo today. Yesterday was Eau de Reglisse, after finding the bottle in the very last box I searched.
Banana Day, yay!
You found it!! Yay.
I’m wearing Vicky Tiel Ethere.
how is it? I’ve seen her on one of the shopping channels, but have never smelled any from her line – I am always so mesmerized when I watch scents on home shopping!
Wearing Armani Prive Vert Malachite.
It’s another gorgeous day here, and I thought I was going to wear Eva today. But then I pulled out the little box of “summer” scents and there was Eau d’Hadrien. Just staring at me. Like I’d been ignoring her for months (as I have). I said, “oh, hello”, and she said, “oh, so you DO remember me”. Okay, she’s a little tart.
Jealous of your gorgeous day! And you do smell perfect for a gorgeous day.
you smell great! wish I had summer weather, waaaa!
We seldom do in April, but this year spring definitely came early! We usually get rain until after Rose Festival, which happens at the beginning of June. I’m betting it will be canceled this year though.
Rose Festival, I mean. Rain never gets canceled in Oregon.
ah, you are in Oregon! I deeply apologize for my weather jealousy, ha ha. My parents live in the Portland suburbs
Wearing Jorum Studio Phloem. Went for a sniff down my bottles this morning deciding what to wear, and didn’t get past the second one.
It’s. So. GOOD. Instant mood pickup!
Nasturtium is apparently quite weedy and invasive, so yay for Weed Day, as it’s the note I think really makes this perfume addictive!
But nasturtiums are so fun and colorful, and you can eat them! I saw some lovely orange ones yesterday and almost picked a few for my salad!
Oh, I love them too! Apparently they like to eat up real estate in your garden is all. But if you like some nice mustardy/peppery kick in your salads that seems all to the better!
I love the Afrikaans word for Nasturtiums(which is a staple in many and most gardens in South Africa)
And yes,pretty in a salad!?
Good morning I am wearing Prada Infusion de Rose today and drinking a cup of Rooibos, Peach & Cherry tea.
That tea sounds yummy!
Oh!Who makes that tea?
SotD is The Black Knight.
It still feels kinda weird to be very busy with work while not being at the office. I dont know if I will be able to get used to this situation like its normal. Then again, I am coping better than last week.
anyways, I am so glad Ive created a small work space in a separate room.
But I HAD to. My husband also works from home and we both have to make phone/video calls all day long. So sitting in the same room was NOT an option.
I’m actually beginning to adjust a little to the new protocols at work.
I do feel very restless at home though. Not being able to see any friends is not great, to say the least.
I can see how just being stuck at home in one space all of the time is tough. Even though my work brings a higher risk of exposure to the virus, it is nice to be able to keep work and home separate.
I can imagine its nice to still be able to ‘go to work’ (leaving the house that is)
Right now I even start to miss the silly small things like missing a train…and then hanging around in te ‘kiosk’ to kill time, looking for a snack ?
You know what I would love to do? Just go to a snackbar and get some really crap frietjes with mayo.
It’s missing normality I suppose.
Even after this lock down will end I don’t think our lives will quickly become normal again. But I’m sure you will be able to miss plenty more trains and look for plenty more snacks in the near future
I really sympathize with you on this, Jiji! I never took advantage of telework before I retired because I did not want my home to become associated with my stressful job. Also, I was getting my 10,000 steps a day through my commute.
You’ve done the right thing in creating a new space for working at home that you can dismantle when you’re done with that someday.
My work desk is in a small junk room upstairs. When work is finished I can close the door, walk downstairs and come home hahah ?
The upside of working from home, coffee is better and I am taking more breaks right now ☀️??
It’s actually fun to do stock orders on my laptop from work,in my bed,with MY coffee of choice!
I can totally get used to this!Lol
Haha I can totally picture this. ?️☕?
Prada Infusion d’Amande today. Perfect for the cool, cloudy weather!
SJP Lovely, so maybe partial points?
I woke up with The Mamas & The Papas in my head. Monday, Monday, can’t trust that day….?
Such a good cheapie, I have Lovely Sheer and it’s perfect for warmer weather
I’m feeling kind of fragile so I’m wearing a couple spritzes of Cashmere Mist, a soft and undemanding perfume if there ever was one. It’s a gorgeous day here, still a bit chilly but loads of sunshine and ordinarily I would be out shopping for weekly provisions since it’s Monday but I had a doctor’s appointment by phone earlier and I’m putting everything off until tomorrow. Back to torpor again.
Have a nice cocoon day, hopefully you will feel better tomorrow!
Take it easy, ringthing. Wishing you a better day tomorrow.
Sorry it is not a happy day ringthing!
I am at work earlier than normal. Being an “essential” worker is strange. More stuff is coming down from corporate that they want people from the perishable departments to be in the general grocery are helping the stockers with cleaning and stocking. Thing is my asthma makes me high risk and that’s not doable and said so. The boss doesn’t seem to care but I don’t have the means to stay home. I will be calling people to give them an earfull. Wearing no 5 today.
Good luck coming to a resolution that works for you. And thank you for being out there and helping keep us all fed!
There have been articles recently indicating that asthma may not be the risk factor it was originally assumed to be:
That’s not much consolation for moving into a higher risk area, and I imagine the smelly disinfectants themselves might be irritating, but I hope it might ease the worry a little?
Joining Suzy Q in En Passant, which I usually reserve for warm weather. But I’m seeing way too many photos of lilacs lately.
Finished my latest Korean Netflix watch last night…Memories of the Alhambra. Quite the creative show. Is Subway that popular there? Or do they just pay well for product placement? It was noticeable in another series, which is why I wondered.
You smell divine
As do you! It’s blooming nicely today. I find this scent tricky because it really seems to matter what the weather is like. I get no cucumber today, which I’ve sometimes gotten and didn’t like.
I agree about weather and this perfume. There’s a definite cut off day when I can’t wear it any longer–heat, humidity. I’ve never specifically identified cucumber but I can see that. I get lilac, an aquatic note and a couple of others that are quieter and elusive.
Starting off the week in SMN Caprifoglio (honeysuckle). I think it actually uses a lot of orange and orange blossom to achieve a likeness wirh honeysuckle. It’s a very clean honeysuckle. Very enjoyable.
Trying to have a tough mindset for Monday and conquer my work challenges. I am also trying to not let anxiety in on a certain looming issue that is stressing me out everyday. I’d like to just not let it take over my mind today.
Robin, I’ll be joining you in SIP for one or two days this week, though I’ve never smelled Likewise.
I understand your mental challenge, believe me. Yesterday was good. Today, not so much. Take care.
I had literally forgotten Likewise existed, and it’s really pretty but I guess it was limited edition?
Another cold sunny day, supposed to get snow tomorrow. Will do my hour of yoga, then bundle me and the dog up for a walk. We are all getting fat sitting around the house. Wearing L’Heure de Nuit.
Haha, me too. I feel like all I do is cook and eat and cook and eat.?
I keep trying on my clothes to make sure they fit, I am feeling fat these days
Me too, although my pants still fit. Too much sitting.
Well working my way through packs of Fritos aint helping my 28 waist stay a 28….???
I here ya on the pandemic poundage, sigh and I am not a type of person who can “afford” the extra weight lol. You smell fabulous. LHdN has been on my wishlist forever, it rarely goes on sale.
It’s on sale right now at Neiman Marcus for 25% off.
You got me looking now, lol
I can’t haha..right? Nope, I can’t lol but thanks!
Givenchy III today, vintage. I am the only person working on my floor for about 90% of the week. I’m finding I can wear whatever I please and in whatever amount. Same for walking outdoors.
Oh good, glad you are reasonably isolated!
Wearing Sel de Vetiver today, because I need that vetiver to just be no-nonsense and get things done. Once again, there are arguments in my house over at-home school assignments. This is not shaping up as an easy day.
So sorry missionista!
Our strength lies in our perfumes!!!Lol!
Wearing the lovely Cristalle EDT. The real one, not the imposter that is the edp
Tea is Marco Polo by MF.
On my long list of bottles I want to buy is Cristalle edp, but it’s the only one I know. How would you compare to the edt, and the verte version?
I tried EDP years ago (twice or thrice), and do not remember it very well. But I distinctly remember that it was sweeter than EDT and had some fruity notes. EDT (which I own and wear) is not sweet at all (moss, bergamot, hyacinth – something between mossy citrus and floral chypre).
I do not really remember how Eau Verte smelled, only my general impression that it was less complex than EDT. Maybe no moss but more citrus?
I agree with everyting Glannys said. The edt has the most forceful character, although the edp lasts longer. It’s considerably sweeter and more floral. It lacks the crispness and the focus of the EDT.
Robin has done a great and very humorous review of both. Hence the mention of impostor.
I cannot remember Cristalle Eau Verte, though I have tried it. I think that says it all
I am with you on Cristalle. Only EDT!
Love Marco Polo..Love 19 EdT
Hahaha. I had to go get my bottle to check: it’s the edp. I still like it and will wear it tomorrow
Have you read Robin’s review of Cristalle?
Actually, the edp is perfectly nice, but it bears very little resemblance in a way to the original edt. And I can see that if you have a strong attachment to the edt, that the edp feels wrong, for want of a better word.
And I have not smelled a brand new bottle of either in eons! I hope that review is still even close to accurate. I don’t see how the EdT could still have as much oakmoss as it used to.
My own bottle is more than 10 years old, probably closer to 12 -13 and still smells pretty mossy.
It’s funny, everytime I smell it, I’m reminded of Roger Moore versus Sean Connery.
Reformulations as the different James Bonds — that is perfect!
I made a discovery recently that surprised me. I was wearing SSS Yin & Ylang (a new favorite!) on my right hand, and someone mentioned PG Indochine. I’d sort of forgotten about that scent and wanted to smell it again, so I put some on my left hand.
The combination was intriguing, counterintuitive, and maddeningly familiar. My first thought was that it was almondy, like the scent of an almond croissant, but without any of the sharpness that almond extract can have.
The next day, I concluded that it reminded me of FM Eau d’Hiver. I haven’t had a chance to do a side by side test to confirm or refute this hypothesis, but will try to do it this week.
Aha, interesting! I do like Hiver.
I’ve always wondered how they did it! Of course, I may have this totally wrong, on closer inspection.
OJ Champaca today, from the last swapmeet, I think from Elisa P. I hope you are doing okay, ladybug! Thinking of you! ?
You smell really good. I’m waiting for a bit warmer weather to spray that one on.
I will use only my FB this week, so I started classy with vintage Miss Dior EdT. Nice for a sunny and not too warm spring day.
We took a walk and now I am cooking chicken legs with Ras El Hanout and beet salad.
Oh my, I want your dinner!
Sampling M&G Cannabis in honor of 4/20 day. Don’t smoke but this is a great excuse to explore this sample . The opening strikes me as green and slightly astringent. If you like sandalwood in the Tam Dao vein, you might enjoy this. Think I’d like this better on dh.
Ah, the Tam Dao reference made me take notice! But have never liked the smell of pot.
Me neither. Smells like skunk!
I don’t have any of those brands, but I found Sideris by Maria Gentile in my sample drawer, so half a point?
I know this is a first world problem, but I’m finding working from home mentally challenging. I just started a new job before this all began, and I feel zero connection to my work or coworkers. I have a laptop set up in my living room, but I just feel that ‘work’ mindset is completely invading my home!
I truly pray this will be over – in a careful, healthy way – soon!
You smell fabulous, and calm and contemplative.
SOTD = Tauerville When We Cuddle and I Smell Your Perfume on My Clothes
Nice! Therapeutic dose but I think I can double that without gassing myself out ?
In other news – Zoom and the ridiculous way they allow scheduling in 15 minute increments but having a 40-minute restriction on free accounts; boo hiss. With the amount of cross-selling (to me), they should pay me for having to click out of the helpful suggestions. That said, I know the cost is < $15 / month which can be split amongst the users but we will probably only use it 2x per month so really not worth it (I would rather donate the money). I will be doing what Undina does which is schedule 2-3 consecutive sessions.
As to the Community Project, I have a lot of one of the named perfume houses; however, because I am not happy with the tone the new owner used in responding to several inquiries. I will still wear the perfumes (they’re really good and most of mine were from Laurie), but I will no longer mention the house here nor on Insta. I could change my mind about not posting the perfume but my opinion on the customer service will probably stay as I thought it was during our first exchange last year.
wow..that is awful re: the perfume house.
Do you have a theme this week, or just wearing what calls to you?
No specific theme this week but of course as soon as I typed that I’m thinking of wearing other Ss or wearing the house that shall no longer be named and still post an IG link that’s not my SOTD.
I’m grateful to have SSS back. I wouldn’t have Yin & Ylang or three samples I hadn’t tried before, or feel free enjoying my treasured Tabac Aurea, if it weren’t for that.
I will absolutely wear my perfumes from this house.
Today I’m wearing TF Ombre Leather and I have to clean the oven. I made chocolate chip cookies yesterday, and as I was moving the sheet pans I got distracted for a minute and the parchment paper and the cookies accordioned off the pan and onto the floor and inside the door and window of the oven. I scraped up what I could (really ugly cookies, but they taste okay) and now I have the baked on dough to remove.
All I can say is “5 Second rule!” ?
Yes,what Deva said!Listen to the RN’s!!???
You smell great!
I wore Ombre Leather last weekend and two young women working in our local grocery store complimented me on my fragrance ?
This is partly why I switched from parchment paper to silicon mats. They work great and don’t budge!
Sample of the day is Wicked from sixteen92. I smell like vanilla cake that fell in dirt. Clearly nothing I need
I started out being twins with tiffanie, in Queen of the Night. Switched to No.19 just now as I was craving green, and had to check on my unemployment. I ran up to the pharmacy earlier and scored 75% off Easter candy, 4 bags for under 4 dollars! Including sour patch kids!
Enjoy the candy. You remind me to pull out No 19.
I’m halfway through the mini Hershey special dark!
And I meant to respond to your question re: my No. 19 EDP bottle…probably won’t be thunked until late next year due to other perfumes that I also enjoy wearing but you know which one is my one true love. Is there a song?
On Easter candies – Target still had them at 50% off only this last Saturday so I am holding out.
There’s this one
Steely Dan! There’ll never be another two like Fagan and Becker- so dam* smoooth..!
Ooh and this one
NICE!NO.19 is a gorgeous tint of green,you smell AWESOME!
LOL, I got tired of Queen of the Night, had to scrub it and sub it with some Paris-Riviera.
So we were Chanel twins too!
…scrub & sub ?
Happy Monday to NSTer’s.
I may reach for Au Dela today.
Happy Monday AngelaB! Hope you found something pretty to wear.
I don’t do captivity well, but I survived ?.
Like Lillyjo I wanted a green perfume today, so I’m wearing Weil de Weil parfum de roulette.
Green twins ?
Good morning, I hope all of you and your families are doing OK in these strange times. I’m starting the day with Annick Goutal’s Un Matin d’Orage. It’s one I bought quite early in my perfume days, and I don’t wear it very often. Each time I do, I wonder why not.
It is very gorgeous, but I don’t wear mine very often either.
SOTD is Pacifica Waikiki Pikake roll on version.I prefer the solid perfume,the scent is softer.
I’ve been binge watching Schitt’s Creek the past week and trying to imagine Moira’s fragrance choices! It would have to be something fairly dramatic,definitely not a skin scent.
We are binge watching it too! Don’t know how I never saw it, it’s perfect pandemic watching.
Any Moira fragrance thoughts? So far I’ve only seen her wigs,no mention of fragrance.
I’m wearing SSS yin and ylang. So pretty and great name too.
It is gorgeous. I need to wear it this week.
Vintage Amazone . . . for this cool grey day.
I loved Amazone back in the day, great choice!
la chasses aux papillons….wish my activities matched the name of my perfume!
With you there!
My SOTD is LL Poivre 23 for which I somehow have multiple little samples. I sprayed n a lot. This is one of my favorites from the line. It’s got a bold pepper and nice sweet wood smell. I could swear there is immortelle too. Not much happening here today. I need to go put for a walk but am feeling very lazy. It was so humid yesterday that even though I managed to walk for an hour I kept thinking I would pass out.
I got a lot done today but no walk, no yoga. Tomorrow!
You know,I come up with these amazing ideas(Chanel week,”the perfumed apartment”(we’re getting there,lol)),and then in a split second I either forget or get sidetracked by another awesome idea…Lol.
Yeah,I’m all over the place,especially now.
NO Chanel week,lol.
Givenchy Organza for a day spent with work related admin partly from home,a little bit from my office/stockroom at the hospital.
Such a nice perfume,and I try my best to have a lighter hand with application nowadays…
Hope everyone has a great Monday!
Istagram:another great idea I had.Currently empty,but hang in there guys!Planning some cool pics of home and my collection.
In the meantime,I’m enjoying Deva’s videos of the cabin in the woods(LOVELOVELOOOOOOVE!!),beautiful flowers and kitties,and Jada’s 30 days scents!
Organza is one of my all time favorites! Totally sexy, imo?
You are filled with great ideas, like most of the historical geniuses! ?
I look forward to your developing IG feed because I know it will be outstanding!
Watch this space??
SotD = Mona di Orio Santal Nabataea
Pretty picture today Robin! And thank you for all the videos about things botanical. Sometimes I swear I can feel my whole body relaxing when I watch them.
SOTD = back in Prada Candy today.
I relax when I look for them, too
Blasted myself with Heure Exquise this morning. It was beautiful for about 3 hours.
I was so busy today that I didn’t even respray myself. Inspired by my junk-food treat of SuperNibs, I will spray on some Reglisse Noire for my last bit of the day.
SuperNibs!? Are they nibs but bigger? That’s the best licorice!
Mmmm nibs. I heard there is chocolate covered licorice out there somewhere..I must investigate. And choco covered cinnamon bears..possible blind buy
Yes, they are long nibs made by Twizzlers! So addictive!
Commando so far perfume-wise, but I’ll probably go with something with lavender at bedtime. Or just Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender hand therapy.
Daily life stuff: I had a fairly successful trip to Wegman’s today. It wasn’t terribly cold, and I had lots of layers on, so I was okay waiting outside for a little while. My mask helped keep me warm. The fellow in front of me pulled down his bandanna and had a cigarette while waiting. Six feet away downwind, I started coughing from my tobacco smoke allergy, despite my mask, and got stared at for coughing. I really thought about saying something about being allergic to cigarette smoke, but figured it wasn’t worth it.
Once I got in it was nice having only so many shoppers in the store. Sometimes it took me a bit of looking down aisles to figure out where things were, as I’m not terribly familiar with the store and they’ve moved things around again. People were pretty good, although one man darted in front of me as I tried to figure out where in the prepackaged meat and cheese deli section the roast beef was. I was reading package labels as fast as I could, but the packages of sliced meat all looked the same. Oh, well.
I found a bunch of foods we’d been wanting for a while, though, so that was good. Most people seemed to be doing the self-checkout while I was checking out, so I didn’t need to wait long for a cashier. I like that they disinfect the conveyor belt and around the area between people.
Also today, I got the summer-blooming bulbs I’d ordered in February. I managed to plant the irises soon after getting home. I’ll try to plant the lilies on the next warmish day we have here.
