Thanks to G., who provided me with samples of a 1950's No.5 Parfum and his sacred Cuir de Russie vintage EdT I'm doing a 'family sniff' on my arms by adding Cuir de Russie current Parfum. I smell 'extraordinaire'.
Best to all
Well, L. you do smell especially good today ! I can't take credit for the '50s No.5, however: that honour goes to our dear Whitefluffy, who was kind enough to share it with me. It's such a privilege to know Marilyn's No.5. The base has an almost leathery vibe to it - something to do with the dry vetiver, oakmoss, musks, I suppose. Seriously sexy stuff, grrrrrrrr !
Habit Rouge (EdT) for me today.
Have a lovely Tuesday, all.
Lift-you-off-your-feet hugs, everybody -- yes, even you, strapping Jon Rodgers. My back is strong and affection boundless. Hope that'll hold all of you until I can catch up with PMs.
The mini-vacay from BN was all good. In a short time, I recognized that Mod Stuigi is used to dealing with the thick-skinned boys' side of the forum and is less attuned to this woman's more sensitive constitution. I've done what I can to highlight to Huddler the importance of functions to us members and BN's business vitality. Grant and I have visited a bit and remain lovey-dovey. Your supportive posts and PMs were like heaps of flowers. Bless your good hearts.
It's been e-x-t-r-a busy here -- the asphalt-removers have exposed zones whose lifeless soil I've been amending and into which I've been transplanting; the playground's blacktop removal also revealed a possible need to spend lots of $$$s to rebuild the base before repaving; the quarry is having their lawyers draw up plans to sell us the dilapidated stone barn next door! (my first home); and our boomerang daughter is moving out the 1st of June, so we're awash in duplicates of furniture and household goods in preparation. Friends have been dropping in at an unprecedented rate, too. Oh, yes, and the next round of magazines came in Friday, so I've got to get back to "work" work. Hence, "the busy."
Haven't decided between Jicky andShalimar -- something cozy for a thunderstormy day.
