It's cold outside so the lovely friendly perfumistas are by the fireplace, sniffing our scarves and dreaming of the desert

Thank you Pots. Shall I copy advent calendar details across onto the new thread?

Thank you for starting a new thread lots, and thank you for the amazing advent calendar planning MrsM!

SOTD was Commodity Gold. Both children are on the mend and back at nursery/ school. I went and had a pedicure to celebrate as it was my day off work. I am still knackered and the house is a mess but my toes look great.

I've also been loving Captured by Candlelight and Drive Them Wild.

Dreaming of the desert puts me in mind of amber mystique, (estee lauder) as I first smelled it at duty free in a desert airport. Lovely smell, warm and spicey without being overpowering.

- Then send your partner two small packages to unwrap on 'their' dates. (These can be samples or DIY decants).
- I will PM you each details of how to add text to the calendar on your dates.
- On your days, unwrap one of your packages, enjoy the scent, then go to the calendar using the link I will PM you and add you remarks in the text box for that date.

Really awful situ with a family member - just very difficult couple of dsys.
Thank you for asking x

FloraMacDonald Sun 24-Nov-19 07:49:49

Sorry Stinky. flowers

Lotsofpots Sun 24-Nov-19 10:38:46

Sorry to hear that stinky. Hope things improve.

SOTD yesterday was Pryn Turkish Leather. Not what I expected - I got a lot of sweet, somewhat artificial vanilla from it. Much like TF tobacco vanille. Disappointing as I wanted the toughness and masculine edge that the name promised. I ended up adding some LE no 15 to get some spice into the mix.

Anyone seen the new Perfume Society discovery box? I’m annoyed at myself for missing out on the Harvey Nichols one so considering this.

It has two Escentric Molecule 30mls. Has anyone tried these? I’ve got Molecule 01 and it’s nothing special so I’m unsure. This box has Molecule 04 and Escentric 04.

Lotsofpots Sun 24-Nov-19 12:19:07

Ooooh venice that looks amazing. Very tempted.
