    My SOTD is Seville a l'Aube.

    your thoughts elsewhere.

    The only tuberose scent I own is Blond by Versace and it is a bit too "in your...

    We have had a fine day here with some sunshine between the clouds.

    We drove to Wales (Llangollen from Shrewsbury) for a pub lunch, which was
    really rather good, followed by a quick visit to The...

    ginger gin that I intend to imbibe later on towards the evening.

    It's sunny here too this morning.

    I am testing a 5ml samole of Asja by Fendi.
    This is by Jean Guichard and reminds me of a lighter version
    of Poison or Cinnabar but more wearable than either. It...

    Good evening. No synching here as Dad wore Old Spice and Mum
    wore L'Air du Temps (neither of which I have.)

    Instead, I am wearing one that Mum often complimented me on - Cristobal.

    My father wore Old spice and my Mum wore L'air du Temps and Tweed. I have
    none of these so will wear Balenciaga Cristobal, since my mum loved it on me

    Glad to see you back safely, Teardrop.
    Hope it went ok.

    I am wearing Plum Japonais and hoping to do some hanging baskets
    later on today. Will keep them covered at night until May is over though.
