Hello all. Institut Tres Bien Tres Russe.
Good wee hours, I am having a pleasant insomnia, soothed with vintage Antilope EdT.

And a belated Happy Birthday to inees for yesterday.
30Roses - hope your mum is doing ok

schools are closed) and revel in Cinnabar, whilst doing a batch of cooking.
Good morning all !
:birthdays: Happy Birthday Whitefluffy :birthdays:
:birthdays: Happy Birthday Ody :birthdays:
Following Kewart's example today. Off work, snow already started here and looks set to continue for the day.
Venison casserole in the slow cooker, wine in the rack, dvds and nibbles ready for action. Good luck to anyone facing the prospect of public transport later - this pathetic country usually grinds to a halt at the merest sign of anything wintery.
In synch today with Zino Davidoff.
:) nice to see afternoon greetings in the morning ,
hello to Pamplelune et all ,
oh i am so proud today i am wearing Chanel Cuir de Russie, the one with sweet barnyard smell, but bit too powdery/iris puffed for my taste,but i like it today, on a cold snowy day....so there is hope i may like it more in the future :)

Good Morning all. TF, Tobacco Vanille.
Happy birthday, Ody :birthdays: and Whitefluffy :birthdays:!
(((((30R and mom)))))
SOTD is Hermes Hiris, a serene, contemplative beauty that I ought to wear more often.
have a lovely Friday, all.
((hugs back)) from Mom and me! I think she is okay; it just rattled her. And it rattled me, too, I suppose, but now that 36 hours have passed without further incident, I think the immediate danger is over.
Happy Birthday to Whitefluffy and odysseusm!
Temperatures are headed south. Feels more like winter. A good day for something cozy-- Mandorlo di Sicilia.
Many thanks to all for the birthday wishes! :) MY SOTD will be Norne.
Lots of celebrating today! Happy 50th birthday to my dear husband. Love you sweetheart! You smell wonderful in Urlich Lang's Nightscape.
Happy birthday to Odysseum & Whitefluffy today too! Hope you have a wonderful day.
SOTD is Robert Piguet's VISA by request.

Many, many thanks for kind wishes from wonderful BN folk!!! Happy birthday to Mr. Odysseusm with whom I honored to share this day.
Today we are leaving on the camping trip to desert mountains of southern New Mexico. SOTD L'Artisan Iris Pallida
Mistral Patchouli by Atelier Cologne
Happy Birthday Whitefluffy & Mister RHM!
Just been out in the snow to the shops, & returned to find my satellite TV isn't working. :( SOTD is Josef Statkus.
Happy Birthday to Whitefluffy :birthdays: and Odysseum :birthdays: Have a great time on your camping trip, Whitefluffy! I've only ever spent time in northern New Mexico, in the Abiquiu area, although I did venture down to Bandelier, Santa Fe, and Albequerque. Such a lovely state. :smiley:
Odysseum, you smell wonderful. I adore Norne and suspect I may succumb to a full bottle before spring.
Jon and Kewart, I'm jealous! A day cooking and relaxing at home sounds perfect. Although it will be 50 F here today, so the outdoors is actually beckoning.
I'm in synch today in Dans Tes Bras (Roucel). I'm enjoying it quite a bit.
Happy Birthday to all who celebrate today, Whitefluffy, Ody and Mr RHM. I hope you all
have a very special day.
Have fun on your trip, Whitefluffy!
Today wearing Ava Luxe Madeline.
Have a great weekend!
Three birthdays?! We're gonna need a bigger cake ... or cupcakes!
Best wishes to Ody, Whitefluffy, and Mr. RHM
Duh. Yesterday I was reminding everyone about sync Friday, and here I failed to observe it. Let's see if I can remember later, after I shower.
For this a.m., I'm back in vintage Shalimar extrait. Might as well get to know it before it ages further. See, Mr. Q is away for the morning, so I'm allowed to stink as I like. Plan to call Ulta once they open and ask which Shali they have on the shelf.
And now ... off for a date with the vacuum.
donna255 - you smell FANTASTIC. One of my favorites eaux's. Sad that the line was disco'd.
Happy Birthday to my buddy Odysseusm (I will wear some Norne tonight & think of you) and to White Fluffy and also to RedHotDaddy (LOL)!
Quarry - silly girl, you were the one who reminded me yesterday that today was Roucel/Bourdon sync and you went up and forgot with your Shalimar-on-the-brain (I'm to blame, right?). You'll be throwing off beautiful sillage from behind the vacuum.
In sync in:
Kouros (vintage) by Yves St. Laurent
I realized, when I went to my sample pile, that I only had two scents to participate in the Sync. I could have sworn I owned more Roucel scents...but I thought wrong. There are many that I have been meaning to own (Dans Tes Bras, KenzoAir, etc) but the only I have a bottle of (mini) is Bourdon's Kouros - although I have a decant of Iris Silver Mist I'm gonna wear later (from Roucel).
I learned, from a few guys on BN, that the best time to wear Kouros is on a hot Summer day. I thought it sounded ridiculous, but one time I went to an outdoor festival right on the beach (on the sand) on a hot June day and I decided 'what the hell' and wore it. It really worked. So, I always think of this as a Summer scent. However, today, we got a cold blast that came through Miami, and it's cold (for us) today...so here I am wearing it in different weather - and it also smells fantastic. It's not quite as 'huge' as when I'm sweating and my body temperature is hot. Underneath my flannel shirt and undershirt, sitting here at my desk, every time I move around I am treated to that wonderful incense/honey/musk smell that is unmistakeably Kouros.
Wearing my favourite 1725 from Histoires de Parfums today.
Chemist in the Bottle is having a weekend poll about most expensive perfume fantasies. How about you join our discussion?
Happy Birthday Whitefluffy!!!! You should have some great weather for your camping trip! Enjoy :) And you smell great :)
I am in a cloud of Chanel No. 22 from my new bottle. Slowly drifting further and further towards an almost pure Chanel girl, but I know that will never totally take place. But my collection grows :)
CJ Scents Sandalwood edp today.
Have a great Friday!
I’m in synch today in Maurice Roucel’s Rochas Tocade layered over a smidge of Attar Bazaar’s Indian Patchouli oil – what a reek! :shocked: But I like them together. I’m busy vacuuming and cleaning house today, too. B-belle is coming home this evening, and after two weeks of enjoying hotel amenities I didn’t want him to come home to a scuzzy wreck. Dust bunny round up today. http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j1...girlSmiley.gif
I’ve been enjoying my two or three staple fragrances, one for day and one night; but also rose fragrances lately, especially layering – for example: perfumer’s workshop tea rose over kiehl’s original musk. Today’s Tocade over patchouli oil. I suppose I’m aiming for an underlying dirty earthiness with a rose aura hovering above. Wearing a fragrance that is composed with these elements gracefully blended doesn’t interest me, it’s the odd layering that I’m enjoying. It’s a phase.
Happy Birthday to Odysseusm! :birthdays:
Happy Birthday, Whitefluffy! :birthdays:
Happy Birthday wishes to RHM’s husband, too! :birthdays:
Have a good weekend everybody! :)
Whew cold today. A sweater and She-Wolf, the vanilla and "dirty musk" that is so wierdly compelling to me. Both my littler daughters asked for City Rain today, so they go off to school smelling good too, though the small car did not smell so good with all of us in there together. :)
Bonjour mes dames! It's been forever since I posted here, but I still recognise a few names.
My enthusiasm for scent waned for a while, but it's on an upswing again due to a recent lucky find: Convent des Minimes Eau Aimable.
Hope everyone's 2013 is off to a good start. :)
In synch today with Maurice Roucel's L'Instant de Guerlain. I have not worn this in while (last worn in March!) and I am really enjoying the honey-ed magnolia. It feels really powder-y and fluffy today ... but then again, I'm wearing a few more spritzes than usual since I'm not at work.
Sending happy birthday wishes to Whitefluffy, Ody, and Mr RHM! :birthdays: :birthdays: :birthdays:
Evening all. Snowing steadily here, but since I've no place to go ... well, you know the rest ...
Still with Mr Roucel in L by Lolita Lempicka. A nice companion piece to Musc Ravageur, same musky, vanilla vibe, but much sweeter.
Happy Birthday Whitefluffy - sorry I missed you off my morning post! Enjoy your trip.
Happy Birthday to Mr RHM too.
Happy Birthday also to Mr. RHM! :birthdays:
I'll be twinned with Jon this evening, and still in synch (courtesy of M. Bourdon) in Feminite du Bois. Jon, are you enjoying a lovely red wine tonight with the venison? (YUMMY!!)
It's a violet kind of day but with two very different takes on it. :smiley:
Welcome back, Morgaine!
l managed to fix my TV after going back outside to clear the snow off of my satellite dish! :) We've had nearly four inches of snow here today, but l'm warm & dry again now, & cosying up for the evening in Stoned by Solange Azagury-Partridge.
Not looking forward to walking to work tomorrow though, when the snow will have turned to ice...
How did you guess ? http://www.smileysnetwork.com/alcool/alcool33.gif
http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/pa...smiley-027.gif Welcome back Morgaine http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/pa...smiley-027.gif
Good evening all.
Scent twins with 30R in Mandorlo di Sicilia. I adore it in summer but have found it too sweet in today's below zero degrees temperatures.
I also meant to say, Jon, that your venison stew sounds wooooonderful! I've never prepared venison myself, only had it in restaurants, but I'd love to try my hand at venison stew sometime. I'll have to see where I can source some local venison.
I got my seven Ambra Di Luna samples today! Yay! I smell gooood. Got from the RM sample program. Draw back, they are dab ons, not sprays, may try to put these into a spray atomiser.
Happy B-day to all the BNers who have one today!
http://www.thefreshzone.com/images/smilies/yummy.gif - I make it with diced bacon, red wine, cranberries, and shallots. Always goes down wonderfully with a nice merlot.
