Here you all are! SOTD Diptyque Eau Duelle for a lovely haircut.


FestivelyScent · 01/02/2023 23:04

Thank you @corneliastreet It must be really annoying knowing the office environment is a big migraine trigger for you, but not being able to avoid it. I'm still not sure what triggers mine, they're just there, iyswim.

Thank you @Alienbigcat45 😊

Welcome to the thread @plumduck 👋😊

Good Morning,

I am up early. My scent of the day is Tom Ford Soleil Neige. It will be spring soon and I'll put this away, it's very much a winter scent for me and I usually wear it in December/January day time. I am wondering about Kilian Angel's Share but feel this might wait until next autumn now. Need a spring scent so will have to explore. I do like the Marc Jacobs Daisy but fancy something different this year.

plumduck springs feels a long way off here, it's been sleeting this week!
SOTD mostly Impulse Musk after the gym, 12 hours later I can still smell it.


FestivelyScent · 02/02/2023 23:45

Spring feels far off here, too - I'm currently under a heated throw. 😁❄️ Having said that, I am currently thinking what additions sample-wise I could add to my spring collection, which is quite thin atm. Will definitely add another sample of L'heure Bleue to my list, as I loved that and my teensy sample has finished. That'll be to use during the current winter, though.

SOTN is Ambre Narguile. ❄️

Good Morning! SOTD today is a sample of dolce and gabbana light blue. So meh.

Trying Malle Lys Mediterranee again this morning. I like the way it smells but I find I find it a bit too domineering. I’ve only sprayed a tiny bit too - I’ve only got a 1ml sample and this is maybe the third or fourth time I’ve tried it and there’s still quite a bit left!


Alienbigcat45 · 03/02/2023 11:45

Had to wait in for a workman this morning so used the time to try the Rook samples. They are very bold! I think my favourite is the Amber which has saffron and a lot of smoke.

Hello good evening!

My SOTD was killian princess. I love this one. Has anyone tried parfums de marly? I'm tempted to get a sample set but I don't like rose.

SOTD is Ormond Jayne Qi. It really does smell of tea. I get bored pretty easily so usually have 3 or 4 on the go at once. Liking Hermes Twilley Pink Peppercorn as well.

SOTD Shay & Blue English Cherry Blossom. It’s feeling spring-like here today so seemed appropriate 🙂
