SOTD 4.9.2020

A SOTD (Scent Of The Day) thread is a really good conversation generator. The idea is you’ll chime in through the week with whatever scent you are wearing. You don’t need to be super knowledgable, have high faluting tastes or be a published author to comment. Just tell us what fragrance you’re wearing, smelling, buying etc. and how it makes you feel and/or anything else about it that tickles your fancy.

You can also comment on everyone else SOTD choices too. It’s great to tell someone how much you love their choice, ask for more info about it, the house or perfumer. There’s someone here from around the world 24/7 and Perfume Posse people love to chat. We like to keep it fragrant but there’s always room for life events and adventures too. This is our place to share how we smell, live, love, eat, work, raise kids and pets and get on with the business of living.

Perfume Posse SOTD

SOTD 4.9.2020

You probably won’t have time to write every scent, every spritz. Whenever you feel the mood take you, share your current spritz and a few things about it. Maybe you love/loathe it, want it, are excited by the notes/bottle/SA who sold it: WHATEVER! As always here at Perfume Posse, taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.

Hopefully you will come back and see if anyone has responded to your SOTD comment. Then you can reply to them, and so on.

Go To It Crew.

    Bedtime. Inspired by Undina I’m wearing loads of Sensual Orchid by Laurent Mazzone. So smooth and refined yet also sweet and youthful. Almost marshmallow but sophisticated.

    Postie delivered my Boyfriend roll-on and hand cream today, bought blindly with fingers crossed, and it’s a win! I get heliotrope, plum pud and muscat, very comforting, but probably only for the remaining few weeks of cool weather, might be a bit much in the heat

  • Portia Turbo says:

    Stash Unspoken by Sarah Jessica Parker today
    Such a tomboyish look at Burberry Brit Woman. Wearable and fun.
    Jin and I went for Yum Cha this morning. Our favourite has now less that half the tables of normal, all spaced C19 style. Even then this normally, week day bustling restaurant was quiet.

    LAZY day today. I have thoroughly enjoyed being almost immobile. Only things I did were a spot of grocery shopping, collected the mail and walked the dogs. Everything else was reading, TV, computer and eating. YAY! Good day.

    I keep wanting to wear Autoportrait by Olfactive Studios.
    Today in the cool rain it even picks up on that metallic dusty twang of cold water hitting eucalyptus and then cement. So gorgeous.

    Love in White perfect in the heat

  • Melanie says:

    California Snow from Lab on Fire for me today.

  • Portia Turbo says:

    Had the most delightful steaming hot midnight bubble bath.
    My bedtime scent is loads of herbal cologne Paris-Biarritz by CHANEL. It’s so pretty and bright, love the flask style bottle too.

  • Portia says:

    Ambre Nuit by DIOR today to go grocery shopping with Jin. One of my favourite things to do.
    We discovered our favourite Chicken Shop was being renovated, not closed for good. Very happy! We bought LOADS of chicken bits and pieces for us and the dogs. 1kg each of necks, giblets and feet for AUD$3/kg, the dogs are going to be SPOILED over the next couple of weeks. I’ll be doing chicken Tacos and Bolognese and Jin will do Chicken Noodle Soup! YAY!

    ELDO Like This for me – think it will fit this unexpected warm day perfectly. Neroli, vetiver and musk – delish!

  • Brigitte says:

    Jill Sanders no 4

  • Portia says:

    Vetiver Oriental by Serge Lutens. SO YUMMY!

  • Portia says:

    Suddenly it’s 4am! GAH!

    Feve Delicious by DIOR. Perfect bedtime scent.

    I’m wearing Ineke Poet’s Jasmine today, but splurged on the new flanker for Coco Mademoiselle, Eau de Privee, earlier this week after an evil Nordstrom SA mailed me a sample. It’s warm, lovely, and elegant, perfect for coolers days but that won’t stop me from wearing it on warmer ones! Waiting anxiously for its arrival…

    • Brigitte says:

      Why does autocorrect keep changing the name??? That’s Rituale….and the hubs likes this one….and he rarely hands out positive comments.

  • March says:

    I’m very restless today (like the weather!) and I keep trying things on…. so far it’s been Chanel No. 19 Poudre and when it faded, as it does, I spritzed on some Isabey Tendre Nuit which was due to your review, Portia, and thanks again for that, one of my happiest blind buys this year.

  • Dina C. says:

    Cristalle eau Verte today, a summer favorite, since summer is still going strong here in Virginia.

  • Queen-Cupcake says:

    Mitsouko, to honor my friend Ida Meister, who has won a Perfumed Plume 2020 award for her writing: Guerlain Mitsouko Centennial 1919-2019: The Scented Skein.

  • Portia says:

    Amouage Gold Man tonight. It’s wonderful, so grand and rich.
    Now I’m wanting something much less extraordinary for bed. Anyway by Juliette Has A Gun. The outside of my bottle has gone sticky and feels gross but the juice is still good.

  • MMKinPA says:

    I’m going to wear Verveine by Fragonard again today, humidity has been high. Hard week as we lost our 15 year old beagle. The house seems empty without him trailing me or snoring at my feet.

    • Portia says:

      GAH! So sorry to read this MMKinPA. Losing fur babies is bloody rotten. Hugs and Hugs and Hugs.

    • March says:

      Oh, I am SO sorry. I have a 15 year old poodle (15ish, she was a rescue so we don’t really know) and she’s the light of my life, and I will be gutted to lose her.

    • Maggiecat says:

      So sorry to hear about the loss of your furry family member! We share a love for Fragonard’s Verveine – it’s the perfect scent in the heat of summer and takes the edge of stuffy winter days as well.

  • Cinnamon says:

    It’s grey and humid here — warm but not hugely so. Wanted something that would work in that context. FM Le Parfum de Therese is doing very well, thank you.

    • Portia says:

      We have grey, rainy and tepid weather here too Cinnamon, I would never have picked Parfum de Therese for such a day. LOVE that it’s working for you. Inspired.

  • Erica says:

    A new one for me today – Zasmin by Michelle Bianchi. A beautifully soft and lasting elegant fragrance which improved as the day wore on. Blind buy this week during lockdown. Was dubious with the very bland packaging when it arrived but – wow! Anyone else tried this?

  • Brigitte says:

    Lovely Patchouli…one of Jackie O’s favorite.

  • matty1649 says:

    Samsara today

  • KimB says:

    Citrus! Arquiste L’Etrog Acqua to bed as the top notes (citron, lemon, bergamot) as I fall asleep and dry down (lavender and cedar) when I wake up are my favourite parts. For the day, Tom Ford Venetian Bergamot which doesn’t always get a lot of love but smells great on me. Lots of bergamot at first with a loooong dry down of ylang ylang and cedar. ?

  • Sarah Sme says:

    Bergamot by Commodity earlier today because it’s been so hot and smoky in Northern California
