Scent of the Day - 01/02/06 - What's Yours? - Log In!

I'm wearing Velvet Rope by Apothia, a lovely new fragrance I picked up in LA last week. A new fragrance to begin a New Year - perfect. What are you wearing?

(A review of this scent, as well as my LA trip details, will follow soon)

Dear Victora,
Bonne Annee ! Ilove your Parisien updates ! I bought a new scent @ Barney's just prior to their door closing for Reveillon ! I's Frangipane . It is a soft, feminine bur sexy amberfloriental . I think. I love it. I am also a fan of the lush Tiare - But , believe it or not,-I noticed Velvet Rope - It is exquisite -- It's just a matter of time before I succumb to that. My friends (usually nonperfume fanatics ) ask How can you buy yet ANOTHER perfume when you have soo many .. V - I know that you and your readers understand ..My Perfume of the last 2 days has been , what else. Frangipane ! love to you - Madelyn E

Victoria said...

Bonjour mon ami Madelyn! Merci!
Oh I do understand you my dear. I also love frangipani, I have Ormonde Jayne's. I have not heard of yours, but it sounds lovely. I so love amber. You must use it sparingly.

Therefore you need Velvet Rope to fill in the gaps!!!

Happy New Year to you!

Hi Victoria,

Hi Dawn! Yes bummer about Extrait de Songe. I have a small travel size, I don't know why on earth I didn't buy the bottle.

I see the rain at least has not ruined the parade.

I'm adorned in Black Cashmere--I know, I's not for everyone. BUT, for me it's sensational and I love it.

This morning I sprayed some into my palms and ran my fingers through through my hair, it seems the natural oils grip the scent.

When I awaken one of the many first thoughts is which fragrance
for at least the daylight hours.

I can't help it!


Victoria said...

No excuses needed here!
Sounds like a wonderful idea.
I love spraying Serge Lutens Fleurs D'Oranger on my brush.

Ma Chere Victoria,

Bonjour ! Guess What !I needed little encouragement -- In honor of amber based scents. after having purchased Chantecaille's Frangipane. I ran to Barney's (in Manhasset, MY) and treated myself and All those around me to Velvet Rope ! It is very warm, rich and sexy-- more audacious rhan its amber sisters like Sublime. Bois Des Iles (my favorite) and my new treat Frangipane. I loved on first whiff. I await your eloquent review. If you are sill visiting Paris - why don't you "have a cafe or tea" on me at Dallayau on Rue Faubourg Saint - Honore?
My best to you -

My Dear Madelyn,
I am so glad you are enjoying the Velvet Rope. It is so warm and sexy and different. I hope to spread the word of it more here in the USA. I love Bois Des Iles too, of course!

Unfortumately, I am not in Paris, I am just reliving my memories and the many pictures we took while there on our anniversary.

I have only once before felt such a bond with a city, and that is when I moved to California. There is something between Paris and me.
Maybe I will find my destiny calls me there.

Until then I will relive my memories through the photos my husband and I took.

Victoria said...

V, Sloth & Lust? You have scooped me on those. Who makes them?

I'm good today, but dreading going back to work tomorrow.
