SOTD 19.11 – 25.11.2018

Hi APJ,

A SOTD (Scent Of The Day) thread is a really good conversation generator. The idea is you’ll chime in through the week with whatever scent you are wearing. You don’t need to be super knowledgable, have high faluting tastes or be a published author to comment. Just tell us what fragrance you’re wearing, smelling, buying etc. and how it makes you feel and/or anything else about it that tickles your fancy.

You can also comment on everyone else choices too. It’s great to tell someone how much you love their choice, ask for more info about it, the house or perfumer. There’s someone here from around the world 24/7 and perfume people love to chat.

SOTD 19.11 – 25.11.2018

You probably won’t have time to write every scent, every spritz but whenever you feel the mood take you share your current spritz and a few things about it. Maybe you love/loathe it, want it, are excited by the notes/bottle/SA who sold it: WHATEVER! As always here at APJ, taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.

Hopefully you will come back and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them.

Go To It Crew.

  1. Nicolai Kiss Me Intense. Almond, heliotrope, vanilla dusted with some clove and cinnamon. It’s actually breaking through my clogged sinuses! A little almond cookie-ish but a comfort scent for for a cold rainy day.

  2. No scent yet. Thinking of trying Fille en Aiguille again. That stewed fruit accord did me no justice the last couple of wearings. Maybe this weather will change that.
    Major brain malfunction this morning 😞. I’m disgusted with myself. Arrived at the mechanic’s this morning to have my winter tires installed. Of course, said tires were still sitting in my garage 😳. My SIL was meeting me there to drive me home. He offered to get the tires out of my garage and bring them to the mechanic’s. Off we sailed. Went to open the garage door and realized I had left my keys in my car which was back at the mechanic’s. Yeah. It’s that kind of a day.

  3. No. 19 Poudré. The sun didn’t really appear today so no lawn mowing. Food shopping instead. Hate food shopping with a passion, but my cupboards are nearly bare. I did pick up a couple of Christmas clothing items for the Smallies though. Cute bits. No cute bitsfor myself😉

  4. Multiple Rouge by Humiecki and Graef today. Red berries with a cool metalic undertone. I think it is acchieved by the coriander. Strange but very wearable. It’s slightly above zero degrees and I’ve decided to spend the day at home working as usual and later starting with my Christmas wreaths for friends and family.

  6. And so, having won the battle of bats in the belfry I thought it worth mentioning that I tested Absolute Aphrodisiac last night. As previously mentioned, I have no need for this sort of perfume. Just ask Pierre.
    Another one from Initio Parfums. And another powerhouse in terms of silage and longevity. It’s almost a straight forward vanilla. Very high quality, not too sweet. What sets it apart is the beautiful floral/boozy whiffs that float around the vanilla. The dry down is equally delish. That’s where a plush leather nudges the booziness of the way. Lasted forever.

    typical Manic Monday but I came home to the most beautiful card from Saffy…

    THANK YOU SAFFY!!! It is gorgeous and could definitely be sold in a stationery store…Saffy, you need to start your own business!

    • Eau de Camille was very special, wasn’t it? I wore a lot of Goutals right through the 80’s. I almost ebayed-up a bottle of Eau de Ciel not long ago, but then got nervous thinking it may have been reformulated and backed off. One that I remember buying and regretting was Heure Exquise. It didn’t work for me then. Neither did Gardenia Passion. I’ll bet they would now, tho. Too bad the bottles have changed. The old ones were such classic beauties.

      • Eau de Camille was amazing…so many of the originals were sadly discontinued…I also liked Folavril (that tomato leaf note! and that was the very first fragrance…it was inspired by a face cream that she sold long before she segued into perfume making) and eau de Ciel (yes, it’s been reformulated..that was the first bottle I bought at the flagship store in Paris…I had never even heard of the brand but when I returned to the States I sought them out and found that they were sold at Saks in the city…Saks would do a buy one get one free event three times a year and I would get TWO 100ml bottles for $98 USD in the mid 1990s…talk about a bargain)….Gardenia Passion is actually a tuberose scent. I also blind bought Heure Exquise and while I didn’t hate it it wasn’t a love and ended up gifting it away….should have saved it! The old ones really were classics as you said.

    • Just reread this, Mrs. M and I think I’ll seek the Lierre out next time I’m downtown. The last week has lead me to think that I’ll be needing a lot of green and floral scents to drag me through this winter. It’s already weighing on me and my woody/vanilla/gourmand-ish perfumes are not doing the trick. I’m still fighting this weather and have not settled in to it yet.

      • Same here…the cold and snow reek havoc on my psyche and it’s just too early for this…I also think I am going to go with lots of spring evoking scents this winter…although I am currently up at the “buttcrack of dawn’ (as Mr. M puts it) and wanted something sweet with my tea so I paired Casmir with Bond no 9 New Haarlem….then topped it off with Rose Anonyme…..a trifecta of perfection….and for the day I may go with Ginger Biscuit from Jo Malone.

  10. And another sleepless night. A liberal dousing of Pour Un Homme and a bit of reading here to pass the time. I finished up testing the St. Clair Scents line with Frost the other night. It was in the same vein as Gardener’s Glove. To my nose, lovely florals overlaid with a rawish leather. The florals this time around did not smell as fresh or vibrant. Without a doubt First Cut was my favorite, although Gardener’s Glove gave it a good run for the money. I’m still quite certain that a bottle of First Cut will be joining my collection. For evenings with Pierre, perhaps, à la Marzipan.

  11. I thought I’d do another “theme” week. This week I’ll wear fragrances I found for cheap in op shops and flea markets.

    Monday I wore Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne. This is a nice citrusy number, perfect for summer. Today I wore Hermès Equipage. This is the vintage bottle with a knobbly cap with marbled markings. It’s a pretty good woody scent but the oakmoss does take over early on. Very good longevity; it lasted at least 12 hours on me.

  16. Today’s op shop find is Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme Concentrated Cologne. I am a bit of a fan of VC&A PH; it’s a very good leather at the price. When I saw two pristine 25ml boxes of it in an op shop I bought them right away, without looking closely. It was only when I got home that realised they were actually a very rare flanker. With a bit of digging I was able to date one box to 1986, so I’m assuming they are both of that era. CC is not actually cologne, but an EdT with the base notes ramped up. So if you like the leather aspect of the regular fragrance this one is right down your alley.

  17. Le Parfum de Thérèse. I gave this a cursory sniff first go round and quickly dismissed it on account of the opening cantaloupe note. Like most Malle’s have played out, the second time’s the charm. There’s something vaguely Diorella-ish about it. I wore Diorella with fervour in the 70’s, and now I’m on the hunt for yet another vintage.

  18. Some mid-eighties Miss Dior EDT yesterday, with some late 60s No5 parfum in the evening. I have a wee non-spray bottle, so wore a dab or two in honour of CQ and Portia.

Yeah, it’s not what it used to be but it’s still got that Guerlain DNA. Jacques G. was a genius.

    I am forever grateful for the perfume chatter, friendship and belly laughs always experienced on APJ…thanks to Portia and all you lovely folks for making that happen… I think in 50 years time if this site is still up and readable those reading it will get a kick out of all of our conversations, right?

    wearing eau de turkey today…it will be a quiet day cooking in my bathrobe…no entertaining and very very low key which is exactly the way I like it.

    I will think on my fragrance choice…maybe Jo Malone Ginger Biscuit or Dame Black Flower Mexican Vanilla…either of the two would go great with food. Or maybe Solstice Scent Estate Vetiver which is all about cocoaed patchouli and bourbon vanilla on my skin…yeah, I think I will go with that one as I had been thinking about it last night.

  24. Well hello all…. it has taken me TWO HOURS to read this entire forum. I’m glad that the Christmas cards are arriving safely. I had a great 2 nights and 3 days at my caravan. It wasn’t quite warm enough to go swimming, but was lovely to be wearing tee shirts. We arrived home on Wednesday night to Ballarat, which was cold and windy. Today Thursday it was hailing, and felt like winter again…. in fact my Central Heater is back on.
    Fragrances I’ve worn throughout the week include, Vanille Gallant, Issara, Samsara, THUNKED samples of Penhaligon’s Dorothea, and Yasmine and I bought one of the Klein’s rollerballs, but at the moment I cannot remember the name!!! I counted all my samples/decants which were sitting around my computer today…..76!!!. I’m off to bed soon and will drain the last ml of my SDV

    Apologies for the long post.

    Wearing Jardin Sur Le Toit (and yeah, I’m totally juvenile and still pronouncing it Jardin Sur Le Twat 🙄). Off to the hospital this morning for a couple of routine screenings (boobs and bones) then a proper, long overdue glam-up with my hair dresser. Blonde highlights go in at this time of year. My natural colour is a medium blonde, but tends to darken in winter (much like my mood) and I want to be looking all sparkly and gay for Mr. and Mrs. ‘and-a-home-in-St. Martins’ cocktail party this evening.
    And Mrs. Marzipan! A reminder to line up the mini’s for their Secretions Magnifique’s hose-down.

  26. SOTN- ADP BM Mirto di Panarea & some Cambodian OUD oil. My mood lifted immediately. The ADP opening is so strong. It’s like a lemon blast on your face. On top the basil leaf gives another direction. Almost feels like neroli plant and flower.
    The oud oil is a bit skanky and oudy.
    The freshness of the lemon and the darkness of the OUD are very well balanced under a windy full moon.

So, hoping the last of migraine and an upset tummy will be gone by Saturday morning, so I can finally put in some serious work during the weekend. Cutbacks at work lead to no staff with extra time on their hands and a possibility to step in and give a helping hand.

    No pefume today, but Tauer’s perfumed body oil, so lots of amber!

    Also have to report the safe arrival of Saffy’s Christmas card. The first Christmas card to arrive this year, and it is very decorative. No glitter, so I think Saffy must have paid attention to what I said about interior design, the card has a simple, cosy design with attention to detail and it looks great on display.So thank you so much Saffy for good wishes and a beautiful card!

  39. G’day, I’m back from my swanky time-travel party. OMG I can’t even begin to describe everything that went on. Jay surely knows how to throw a party! It’s an outstanding production in which the cast members play out events in the midst of the audience. The venue is set out as different rooms in Gatsby’s mansion. Some members of the audience are brought into the live action and directed to different areas to get different perspectives on the story. My own story is that I’m a wealthy property developer with oodles of cash to invest in some nefarious schemes😉. I may also be guilty of an offence after the fact. All the staff and most attendants were in costume, and the floor was fairly bouncing to the strains of the Charleston. The run has been extended until at least February so my hubby and daughter will be getting tickets in their Christmas stockings. I cannot wait to go again! Wonder which rooms I’ll get to see next time?
    Anyway, back to perfume. I’m in my gorgeous Cocoa Dreams today. I have an idea for layering with Stash for work later. This big idea was inspired by Tara on abottledrose.
