Hi there Folks, Three days life of a perfumista. I took the photo below because I’d not been keeping up my SOTD on a FB perfume page. So instead of ignoring what I’d been wearing and just adding the latest spritz it felt more interesting to give the whole lot. We don’t do an SOTD thread particularly for communication. Mostly it’s a shout out into the void. Sometimes though other group members will comment on a favourite, a snap or with a query. Sadly this pic garnered no such interest, just 3 likes. HA! Still there’s something nice about then bringing it here to the Posse Peeps and showing you what I wore for three days in the middle of Sydney Winter 2022. Maybe you own, like, wear, hate or wonder about one of these beauties. Please take a moment to share any comment about them, how you’re doing or how you are coping with the weather where you are. More than anything I miss you all jumping on board and having a say. Yes we have some wonderful, long term, regular commenters but so many of you all now lurk. No problem, you do you. Should you wish to jump in though, PLEASE DO! You’re welcome, it’s fun and who knows? You might make a few new perfumista pals. Many of us have made friends around the world through perfume.
Three Days Perfume
Here they are, not in order of wear or preference. This was how I thought they looked interesting:
How is there even any left in this decant? It seems to go on forever. I think there’s maybe 1-2ml left and if it lasted longer on me I’d own three backup bottles. Sadly its beauty is all too fleeting. Powdery lollies tempered by leather and resins.
Piguet Bois Bleu
Salty aquatic woodsiness is one of my favourite combos. Driftwood. Beach. Holiday memories. Bois Bleu does it with an ultra masculine slant that works for me but also smells wonderful on girls.
SJP Stash Unspoken
So many people write this off, and I understand why, it’s too pretty/simple/derivative or whatever. Yep, it’s all true. Sparkling quince opening that smells a lot like Nashi Pear backed up by cool peony petal which has a sweet musk with sandalwood whisper base. Yeah, Stash Unspoken is all those things but it’s also bloody gorgeous for me.
Cartier L’Heure Fougueuse IV
Mathilde Laurent is amazing. She made the L’Heure series for Cartier. Every one i9s a stand along masterpiece of refinement and sparse design. Yet the series is also cohesive, somehow she has managed to make them all feel like they belong together. Like J C Elena’s garden series but even more disparate. This one, L’Heure Fougueuse is a shape shifting creature, juicy to begin, queer green heart with a dry and masculine feeling base. It also lives for AGES on my skin. If I spritz in the morning I’ll still smell remnants next morning.
ELdO Noel au Balcon
Honeyed orange blossom, drenched in spiced fruit with a calm warm vanilla/patchouli base. Noel au Balcon is so wearable and works surprisingly well in the depths of winter here in Sydney.
AMBER! with a few bells & whistles. Though I have a dozen or more amber perfumes Velours is the one I reach for most often. It fits my personal scent so well, like it was made to be worn by me alone.
So, what did you wear Three days Perfume? Do you like any of mine?
