    Happy birthday, Ryan!

    Happy Easter! Today we're having Easter ham (Hawaiian style) and carrot salad. Mr. Lark also prepared some creme caramel. I'll be wearing Penhaligon's Bluebell.

    Re: New from Dame Perfumery: Sky Father

    I imagine Sky Father is a reference to Native American spiritual beliefs, based on the graphic design and the house being based in Arizona. I wouldn't take the name too literally. I have a sample...

    Hi all,

    My scent of the day is Jo Malone Orris & Sandalwood. The new smaller 50ml bottles are so cute and feel good in the hand. I'm having a lazy day pottering around the house.

    I absolutely love the initial blast but after that wears off it's hard to detect the heart and base. Mind you, this is my first wearing so it might be a different experience with subsequent wearings.

    Hi all,

    I am trying Chanel Misia for the first time today. I fished it out from the sample jumble at the Denver meet up. What's trash to some is treasure to others!

    Hi all,

    Today I'm testing Jasmine et Cigarette, retrieved from the sample jumble at the Denver meet up. I like the idea of it and, so far, the smell of it. Have a great day!

    A good time was had by all, thanks to our fearless leader Quarry and all who participated. It's now time to sleep and dream of perfume.
  100. Re: What would be a welcome addition to my wardrobe?

    May I suggest Tom Ford's Italian Cypress? I think a classic woodsy fragrance would be a good addition to your wardrobe. Besides, it's my favorite male scent.
