TWRT 12.5.08


I’m just not a white floral type. I wore Parfums de Nicolaï Number One today. It’s an award winning and beautiful perfume but it just doesn’t compel me to wear it again. I like it, but it’s not me.

Jo Malone’s Pomegranate Noir seems perfect for the holidays. The scent actually reminds me of Christmas.

Andy Tauer. OMG. I’m now a big fan. Vetiver Dance (gorgeous) and L’Air du desert Marocain (sublime). Vetiver Dance morphs quite a bit – it actually became stronger the longer I wore it and turned into such a different fragrance once dried down.

Liz Zorn’s (SOIVOHLE’) newest fragrance called Tobacco & Tullel is on my must try list. Notes are: Ambrette Seed, tonka Bean, cumin, cassis, valerian, jasmine absolute, sweet almond, rose, guiac, cedar, orris butter, cruelty free beach harvested ambergris, natural green oakmoss.
I’m wondering about the cruelty free beach harvested ambergris though ;-)

I’m annoyed about paying $10 for the newest installment of The Guide. I know it’s only $10. But still.

After I wrote the review of the three mimosa scents yesterday I had to talk myself down from purchasing 3 bottles of the Harvest Amarige. I worry, you know? There are only so many bottles of a limited edition.

Dexter is in the trunk. Seriously, did you ever think that would happen? I’m so excited for Sunday night.

I saw Zack & Miri make a porno – not so funny. In fact, I tend to over think movies and became disturbed afterwards. Why is Seth Rogan such a hot commodity right now? He doesn’t do anything for me.

I went to a diner last night (random fact: New Jersey has more diners than any other state in the U.S.) and even though Thanksgiving has just passed and I should be so tired of turkey I ordered an open face turkey sandwich. I don’t think I’ve ever ordered anything different from a diner.

Like sunflower seeds? You’ve got to try these amazing chocolate covered sunflower seeds called Sunny Seed Drops. I bought some from Whole Foods Market then found them online from Nuts Online for much cheaper. A great holiday gift.

I love Beauty Habit. Their 25% off sales have been wonderful (and painful).

Yeah, Seth Rogan. Can you say "Schlub?" Even when cleaned up, as in "Knocked Up?" Don't get it. But there are so many things I don't get.

I don't get it either. And ditto on Zack and Miri, that wasn't funny.
A lot of your random thoughts this week echo mine, including BH sale, Liz Zron's new perfumes, Andy Tauer and even Sunny Seed Drops:) Thanks for the Nuts Online tip, I did think they they were a bit pricey at the store.

Nika,
At Nuts Online you can buy Sunny Seed Drops by the pound - if you put them in a pretty little container you could make gifts (perhaps for co-workers) out of them.

Of course I bought 2 pounds with that intention but somehow one bag has already been opened...

Olfacta,
There's just nothing endearing about Seth Rogan. If he was a funny schlub who became a nice guy by the end of the film, I could see the appeal, but he's just a plain old schlub who isn't even funny, endearing or good looking!
