Well, I was hoping to have some photos to go along with this, but I don't seem to have a way to make a new album. I guess I'll just have to work on that later...
Anyway, I've been home now for a little over a week from Russ's and my trip to the Big Island and O'ahu. We were there for a little over seven days, Saturday to Saturday. We flew into the Kona Airport and picked up a rental car to drive up to the Hilton Waikoloa resort, where we were booked until Wednesday of that week.
I had a large order coming from TPC, I received half of the packages but the damn USPS lost the rest...someone is wearing over $200 worth of samples that don't belong to them!
Has this happened to anyone else's orders?
I was going to place more orders, but now..maybe not : ((
Heres the short email i got back from TPC :
It appears the USPS has lost/misplaced your packages. I have advised the owners to reship one time at our expense.
Already have Bleinheim, hesitating between Douro and Endymion,
Your votes will tip the balance, please help in deciding,
Many thanks from Paris : )))
Of course we’re all unique. But how large are our differences? There are fragrances – rose, lemon, vanilla, coffee, … – that most of us are very familiar with. We’ve all learned to recognize them, we associate the same fragrances with the same sources, and we use the same names for them. But what about less familiar odors? I wouldn’t have recognized a fougere or chypre before I got into fragrances.
I'm thinking about how wide the differences are in the way people experience
Fleeting and not so fleeting thoughts:
Le Labo Rose: Upon sniffing, I thought I was "sold". Admittedly Kat and I went in with the expectation of a purchase. I like to hold off and ruminate for days before I make a purchase, so I did that. Now, I'm not so sure I like it any better than Kingdom, another cumin-rose, but much louder. And I got Kingdom for a song, so...
I'll be chewing on this one for longer. I'll probably score a decant, live in it for awhile
