SOTD: Cuir De Lancome

In my own fragrance tradition world on Sundays I like to wear relaxing comforting scents, but on Fridays I usually try to wear something spirited or luxurious, today I am going with the luxuriously chic, Cuir de Lancome, but because I love contrasts I wearing my favorite H&M watermelon top with my black and white floral print skirt and black flats. Giving off the idea of dry and utterly feminine. After work visiting my grandmother, who I admit I adore, we usually talk about cooking, books, and my career in the library. As for fragrance and my grandmother, well she doesn't wear any, but she cracked me up years ago, when I received the present of a bath soak that was fragranced with patchouli and musk, and my grandmother looked over at me said "Jen that is a very sex scent with the musk and patchouli." I loved this comment because it had been a long time since I had heard anyone remember that musk and patchouli are traditionally considered sensual scents.

I love the idea of changing mood and intention with the days via perfume and clothing. Friday is such a wonderful day- the happy anticipation of two days off. I'll probably dress accordingly too...

Sigh. I love Cuir de Lancome. I wish it was just a touch easier to get a hold of....

I think my day for luxurious is Saturday. Night. Or, if I am feeling decadent, Tuesday...just because. :)

Hey Daily,
One of my favorite things about fragrance is to play with the theme and mood it creates for me; I like to use it to enhance my day.

Hi scentscelf,
I was one of those maniacs who swooped up Cuir when it showed up on parfum1, I think beautyencounter.com has it at $99.90 (and the only place I have found it so far), you know you might like Daim Blond or Evening Edged In Gold also they have the same gorgeous suade qualities.

(Grinning ear to ear)
I wore Daim Blond on the left wrist during much of the Chicocoa Scentsation yesterday. Much happiness. Have not had an opporutnity to meet Evening Edged in Gold, but I'll toss a bit of PG L'Ombre Fauve love back your way. :)
