No Way, No How, No Perfume Review: Election Day Miscellanea

I find myself unable to write about perfume today. Today is serious, guys. Go vote. Go obsessively watch the news. Before you do though, tell us what you will be wearing on this historic day. My perfume is a change from my usual tastes, a breath of fresh air, Puredistance. And I could not resist wearing Madame President by Sephora by OPI on my tips (in fact, I bought it just for this occasion, yes, I am a nerd). I want to note, however, that I am wearing it for its name, not for its color. My nails might be red but I am all about blue today.

To mark the occasion, let's have a prize draw. In a half-hearted effort to appear non-partisan, I am giving away a perfume that has neither blue nor red in its name- a 1/2oz bottle of Tom Ford' White Patchouli. If you would like to be the draw, say so in your comment.

That's it for today. Go vote and have a good election day, everybody!

Hi! I've never commented before, but I was so amused by your post because I'd been thinking of the exact same thing (which to wear?!)
I'm wearing Un Jardin en Mediterranee and OPI Dating a Royal on my tips (gorgeous blue)! A dear friend is wearing BPAL Trick or Treat (and says, "we all know which is which!").

I'd love to be included in the draw - I've not been able to try any of the TF fragrances.

For the past few days I've been wearing Ajne Roshambo, a beautifully aromatic patchouli. I suspect that I will wear it again tomorrow. I'm not sure that it befits the historical significance of the day, but it meets my need for something calming and contemplative.

10:26 PM EST  
Blogger Dusan said...

Would you believe that I too am psyched about watching the election reports tomorrow night? And that today more than ever before I'm praying to be the lucky winner of the prize draw? And that my verification word was obama?
Ok, I made that last one up ;-)

Shoot, I forgot about the perfume for tomorrow... hum, let's see, what would be most in synch with the historic day ahead... I know: Déclaration!
Seriously, it's a favorite that I haven't worn in ages. Yep, that's the one :)

Already voted, but will be wearing L'Heure Bleue tomorrow to silently indicate which direction I chose. And, depending on how things are looking, may also have to put on some Jalaine's Vetiver to ground me and keep me from going off the deep end.

11:09 PM EST

oh I would like to be in the draw

I'm not sure what I'll be wearing... probably my beloved Bvlgari Black.
This will be my first time voting!

Blogger ***Zeina*** said...

I haven't quite decided yet what to wear tomorrow, but I'm leaning towards Jo Malone Wild Fig and Cassis layered with JM White Jasmine and Mint. Just something cool, calming, and confident. Or maybe Memoire Liquide Bois de Figuier and AG Neroli if the weather is a bit cooler.

I may just go shopping for new nail polish too! Please include me in the draw. I've been dying to try White Patchouli.

12:22 AM EST  
Blogger Oliver said...

I'm usually a lurker, not a commenter, but I'm excited about both the election and the TF bottle. My nails are neutral and my scent calming -- Tam Dao -- all to keep my blue nerves from fraying. Thanks for including me in the draw.

I'm a European, living in Europe, but watching the news today, still somewhat worried (remembering A.G. ...)
I'm sick at home with cold and no perfume comes through my completely blocked nose, but I'd wear Homage Attar from Amuage today.
T.F.'s White Patchouli is the first ever patchouli scent I liked - and therefore please include me in the draw.

Good morning! At the moment I'm wearing EL Sensuous and I'm pretty sure it has absolutely nothing to do with the election :) My nails are nakey at the moment, but I believe I'll paint them a nice blue before I go vote. Just got a couple from the China Glaze Bahama Blues collection so I imagine it will be one of them.

I'd also love to be entered in the drawing!

I'm European but of course I feel concerned (who doesn’t?) and I'm holding my breath for the American people. My hopes are definitely the same colour as yours. In any case I wish all the best for the future president – i.e. to be “illuminé”, as the French would say. Since this morning I needed a serious mood lift (here in Italy is raining madly), I’m wearing one of my favs: l'AP “thé pour un été” – it is summery and light but I always feel it suits me as glove, no matter the season. perfect to follow the elections keeping hopes high.
(White Patchouli - I love the bottle but not the fragrance: no draw for me!)

The world is holding its breath, it seems. I'm across the pond as well, so no voting for me - but damn, do I wish I could, just this once. The "wrong" result would be so "wrong", it bears no thinking. Good luck to all of you!

As to Tom Ford, I'd love to be included. We're lagging behind over here, I don't think White Patchouli has even been introduced yet.

My toes are blue and so am I, through and through!! Today will be a historic day, I hope in more ways than one. And for my kids sake, if Obama doesn't win my family and I will be moving back to my native country of norway, with or without my husband it seems:-)I really was let down by this country last election, and so was the rest of the world. But I really have faith in this country this go around and I think we will do the right thing. And what an appropriate perfume to give away, the white coming togeteher with the black. I'm thinking of the ad, they're united! Please include me in the draw and VOTE BABY VOTE!!!!

Haven't decided yet, but it will have to be something potent to calm my constantly fraying nerves. I am excited to be sure but still very nervous. My guess is that it will be Norell or Halston...true American classics!
Unfortunately my nails are too bitten down for polish...more nerves but if i was wearing it it would be that gorgeous Russian blue color from OPI. I may still go buy some Urban Decay Blue lipstick to show the world my true colors!

Yesterday, I got laid off from my job. Bummer. However, I had to work with a girl that asked me NOT to wear perfume, cause it bothered her allergies. Today is kind of a new beginning in more ways than one, and I'm not sure yet just what I'll wear today cause I've got so many choices that I got out of the habit of making. However, I would still like to be in the draw, and I've enjoyed the nail polish detours.

Hello, I love perfume sites/blogs and use them to escape the news, politics, and other headaches. I wish there wasn't a political undercurrent occurring here. Nuances speak volumes too! White Patchouli is a good choice. Please include me in the draw as a nonpartisan :-)

As a non-American here, I am interested in your elections but my perfume and nails don't reflect. On my nails, Essie Chocolate Kisses; behind my ears, Piguet's Baghari.

Thank you so much!

Hi Marina! Cracked me up about your nail polish. With the growing nail polish mania out there, I'm thinking I may need to start painting my nails again. I'm embarrassed to say, it's been years. But I still have some OPI colors that are probably past their prime by now - Hawaiian Punch, Year of the Dragon, OPI Red (oooh, that was creative), Outback Aphrodisiac, and Chick Flick Cherry! All shades of red. Do nail polishes ever go bad? They've separated, but still seem to shake up OK. Anyway, no perfume yet, and I need to get out there and VOTE! Thanks for the post, and yes, please add me to the drawing for White Patchouli. Thanks!

As a Canadian entering elections as well, all my hopes are for a peaceful world and the Candidate that shares the same views hopefully wins on both sides of the border. I will likely wear a comforting scent like Montale Extacy when it's our turn to vote. Good luck fellow Americans!

Btw, would love to enter the draw...maybe this will be the first patch to work for me.

Oooh, I still haven't picked a perfume, however on my nails is OPI Designer Series Glamour and on Toesies is China Glaze Emerald Sparkle. And those of you with old OPI colors, the people on the nail polish blogs would call you lucky. I would still like to be in the draw for White Patchouli. I think I might wear Corso Como today, even though I'm staying home today.

Great post--I am distracted beyond measure by the election.

I am wearing Eau d'Orange Vert as I needed something refreshing since I tossed and turned last night. It will be gone by lunch and I will try one of my new samples for a bit of distraction or L'heure Blue to cheer on my hopes.

The real question is what will I be wearing tomorrow: PG Coze (happiness), Apres l'Ondee (sadness), or CdG Tar (anger).

Please include me in the draw.

No nail polish, but I did wear red, white, and blue to the polls, and Timbuktu. It's my current fave, and I also felt that its incense-papyrus notes properly represent my Catholic-librarian-blueblueblue voting stance.

Feminite du Bois today -- probably Coco in extrait tonight. I want something deep and resonant, the better to remember whatever happens next.

A hearty congratulations to all the first time voters. That is the part of this campaign that has truly thrilled me, watching some of my most cynical and withdrawn friends get slowly, slowly pulled in. I had a conversation with one of them the other day. She said that she was feeling very adolescent--distracted, fluttery, a little anxious and excited, but she wasn't sure about what. I said: Isn't that what hope feels like? And she said: My god--I wouldn't know! But maybe that's it...

And I, too, am pulling for the purple, even if my heart is blue.

I voted so early to avoid the crowds that it feels like tomorrow. Stumbled onto your blog while I was looking for a book on perfume that I had hinted on wanting as a present for last Mother's Day (better improve my hinting skills). Anyway, I started to think about a perfume from the USSR that I got in a teeny tiny shop in New York in about 1979-1980. I still have the bottle and the scent still lingers... it is so wonderful...i wish I could find it. I can't read the Russian on the box but it has a picture of a red poppy. Do you have any information about this perfume.

I voted for intelligence and wisdom ( yes I even wore all blue) - in deference to my love of all people who think hard and think deep and spend too much time in the library surrounded by books as they try to learn everything (I DO love a smart man) - I wore CB I Hate Perfume In the Library layered with Hermes Vetiver Tonka (for the Harris tweed jacket or Shetland sweater). Mmmmmmm

And since it worked out so well and I wanted to continue the great moment as long as possible I wore it again today!!!

Just a brazilian living in Europe, late for your post, but oh so happy about how Americans voted that I've been wearing Amouage's Gold, because it's so grandiose ball and champagne like!aliki

Maybe I'm too late for the drawing (but please enter me if I'm not!), but I did vote, and I am excited about our new America!!
