SOTD Diptyque Eau Duelle.

Glad it went okay, yoikes. Why the luminous wee? I had a lens check at Christmas when I had that flu-y cold-y thing, and got a real fright when I blew my nose later. The orange eye drop things must go everywhere.

I had 2 types of dye injected and they end up in your kidneys to excrete.
It was...startling!

Evening all - SOTD was 4160 Year of the Sugar Mouse. Mother, agree about the CBC resemblance. It's also got a hint of BR540 about it with the burnt sugar. Quite liking it but it's not a love.

Just been catching up on the old thread and have been tempted into a sample purchase of Sira des Indes by Calm - sounds right up my street.

Yikes, yoikes!*@mariannehlevy*/the-ninth-life-73b82f62c8e9

Yoikes i read your post as had dye injected into each eye. oh dear god... hoping your outcomes are positive, holding you in my thoughts xxx

SOTD White Musk on my clothes and Tom Ford Noir on my wrists.

bad headache today but editing from home with lots of sugary tea.

KaliforniaDreamz Thu 13-Feb-20 11:47:29

ah Judy that is beautiful

yoikes Thu 13-Feb-20 18:54:22

No...although injections into my eye probably not far off sad

I'm meeting a friend for coffee tomorrow as long as this cold doesn't develop...

Calmasasleepycat Thu 13-Feb-20 19:28:08

Judy, what a loving tale. Pets can really work their way into your heart. 💕

cantbelieve, I do hope you like the Sira Des Indes. I’m a bit concerned because I don’t think I mentioned in my post the initial whiff of something like baby poo! it’s really worth persevering, though.

I wore 4160Tuesdays Red Queen yesterday. To be honest, I had always thought of this as lovely but not special, but yesterday I found it breathtakingly beautiful, no idea why. It is a resinous rose, raspberry and incense. It reminds me of Clinique Beyond Rose, although that one is not fruity.

Today I wore Paris 1948, another 4160Tuesdays. It is a dry peach chypre, with lots of lovely oak moss.

I wept buckets after reading that. My cat currently has a big red lipstick kiss on her little white head.

SOTD MMM By The Fireplace. In direct contrast,I got some Tom Ford Soleil Blanc today, with my Boots points - it’s 15% off fragrance there at the mo. The sales assistant called it Swalley Blank.

I want to call it Swalley Blank from now on, @Judystilldreamsofhorses -- that's so delightful! In my head, Terre D'Hermes is now eternally renamed Terry Dermees after I heard that version (now, where is the 'weeping with laughter' emoticon when I need it?)

Judystilldreamsofhorses Thu 13-Feb-20 22:36:37

She was so sweet, mother. I love Terry Dermees too. Needless to say, Swalley Blank will be stashed away for warmer weather.

Shay and blue salt caramel today. We're getting the results of whether my dads chemo is working today so I went for something comforting.

yoikes I had to take some tablets last year that turned my pee neon and it was so freaky every time I went to the loo!

yoikes Fri 14-Feb-20 07:41:24

lots thinking of you and your dad today xx

I'm meeting a friend for coffee later and will wear obsession as it's her favouritesmile

Thank goodness it's end of term!

KaliforniaDreamz Fri 14-Feb-20 15:00:35

Oh Lots xxxx

Eau des Sens which is actually too animaly on me and i am not loving it as much as i used to

MotherOfDragonite Fri 14-Feb-20 17:32:25

Hugs, lots.

And fingers crossed for your results too, yoikes.

SOTD has been Diptyque Eau Duelle EDP, which is such a relaxing but long-lasting scent on me. I love 34, but it just doesn't have the same staying power.

Judystilldreamsofhorses Sat 15-Feb-20 00:33:00

SOTD MMM Jazz Club. lots I hope you had good news. ❤️

Lovely new fragrant thread smile housework for me this morning, then SOTD will be Youth Dew. I wore Lolita Lempicka perfume yesterday, the one in the lilac apple shaped bottle and two people commented on how nice it was. Only got a tiny bit left so may have to repurchase. I'd forgotten how lovely it is.

yoikes Sat 15-Feb-20 20:59:38

Love youth dew! smile

Sotd has been pp by the fireplace. It really is perfect for this weather.

Thinking of lots x

SOTD Chanel Coco for Storm Dennis.

Best wishes to Lots and Yoikes.

Another major household appliance has failed this am, hot on the heels of the boilersad.

For comfort, SotD is Bella Oudh, following on from Trudon's Olim yesterday. 2019 was the year of soft, warm, luxe scents from old European candle houses.

MotherOfDragonite Sun 16-Feb-20 09:15:45

SOTD has been the lovely relaxing Eau Duelle EDP. Also the occasional bit of Fluffy Lemon Top, which is so badly named because it's really not like a lemon meringue at all but much more glorious.

KaliforniaDreamz Sun 16-Feb-20 17:57:43

Has anyone tried Aldi perfumes?
sorry to lower the tone lol
