SOTD Touch of Woman - La Rive

Judystilldreamsofhorses · 27/05/2023 21:10

SOTD Byredo Gypsy Water for the first bare legged day of 2023.

FestivelyScent · 27/05/2023 23:11

I'm still feeling too cold for even bare arms indoors! But, I think that's because I've recently changed medications, and now I'm cold all the time. It has definitely been cooler this spring, though.

SOTN is Ambre Orient.

I’m usually a cold person @FestivelyScent but it was so lovely to get a bit of sun today!

alltheevennumbers · 28/05/2023 00:13

SotE is Vol de Nuit. @FestivelyScent - I find this is powdery/airy more than anything.

InsomniacVampire · 28/05/2023 07:31

Shiseido Ginza (although someone at work said 'something' smells like a teenager's shampoo lol, whatever that means- I still love it!)

scentnsensibility · 28/05/2023 11:51

SOTD Amorosa Ruth Mastenbroek. Not sure if I like it, luckily it's a tester. I really liked it the first time but now it smells very soapy.

SOTD Cherry Smoothie - ZARA

The sun has gone in. Having a purple themed day with Miller Harris: #1 Violent Ida and #2 Found at Dusk.

We swam in the sea today - it was absolutely freezing but I felt pretty good afterwards, all tingly and glowy.

SOTE is Contradictions in Ilk Sincere, which is soft and musky and comforting. It reminds me a bit of Next Cashmere.

FestivelyScent · 28/05/2023 21:55

I'm usually a warm all-the-time person @Judystilldreamsofhorses Now I'm the complete opposite. Went for a walk the other day and it was wonderful to have the sun on my face and see how green everything is.

I love light and powdery scents @alltheevennumbers and generally all Guerlains, but could hardly smell the VDN. I think it must be a new formulation as the bottle pictured on the sample website looks like it's been 'modernised'. I'll overspray next time to get a better impression.

SOTN is TF Tobacco Vanille.

Yesterday's SOTE was Zara Red Vanilla.

SOTD now is 4160T Sexiest Scent.

Alazne58 · 29/05/2023 12:28

SOTD Ruby Berries - ZARA

alltheevennumbers · 29/05/2023 13:21

The sun's back but there is a cool breeze. SotD #1 is Extreme Purete (Gres). This is the perfect English Spring fig scent, green and airy whilst warmed through by the lightest, freshest tobacco note imaginable, with fine citrus support (and the merest hint of bug spray). If you like fig and tobacco notes, this is like nothing else, and offers outrageously good value.

Nose, Karine Dubreuil-Sereni, is also responsible for last night's bedtime scent, Eaux des Baux (highly wearable cypress/incense). Must be in a groove...she seems to do airy interesting woods.

SOTD: Gucci Bloom

Sotd avon attraction
Very underrated imo

whumpthereitis · 30/05/2023 21:42

SOTD is Mitsouko by Guerlain. Whenever I wear it I feel like I’m in front of a mirror, touching up my makeup and getting ready for the police to knock on the door to tell me my elderly and wealthy new husband has been found deceased following a tragic and unexplainable accident.

Judystilldreamsofhorses · 30/05/2023 22:41

SOTD Commodity Moss.

wiltingfast · 30/05/2023 23:02

Hello people! I see a lot and of Zara chat and I am just wondering is anyone has tried Energetically New York?

I sampled it today , loved the opener, not sure about the middle, loved the drydown. Overall thought it was hitting well above its price point. Would have bought but annoyingly it was out of stock. Impulse has passed now and can't decide do I really want a FB.

Would love to hear some opinions. Tia
