+1.......thanks to you both, N.CAL and Hednic for taking such time to put up such beautiful places....what a wonderful thread this has become!
Yes N.CAL and you get devices to tell you the history as you walk around! There is the magical double helix staircase in the Chateau Hednic put up!
did you visit Chenonceau Chateau.....it's my favourite in France!
Oh Hednic.......those are spectacular photos........often I stayed in Amboise to visit those beautiful castles.
Thank you very much.
It's actually my favourite castle in Britain...........supposedly royal jewels are hidden on it. On very windy days you have to be a little careful.
Thank you N.CAL!
Thanks N.CAL one of the most magical places in England...the legends of King Arthur!
Yes Hednic....exactly that area. Do you like that area of France?
This once bothered me but not now, for two reasons.
Firstly when I have a bottle I love, that costs more than say £150 - 200 pounds - tend to use it so much that I look and wonder where did it...
Possum - Pie,
The limes - about 5 years I think. It was either Christmas 2010 or Christmas 2011........it had been discontinued for a while (it was about £12 when I first used to buy it when I...
No oils........and I love body oils.
As for body care the following are some of my favourites.
Speiza Organics - Restorative Body Balm (excellent)
Temple Spa - Duvet
Ok reading this thread freaked me out a little. So I went to a storage armoire that we have in a room that no sunlight gets into (or very rarely), and is pretty much around 18degrees year around ...
Perfumedlady - 3K ......congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!
Am wearing Saffron Rose by Grossmith today. This house makes beautiful perfume!
Thank you so much (((teardrop))) for the...
Beautiful photos again N.CAL. Thank you so much. Rochester buildings greatly inspired Charles Dickens to write Great Expectations.......and today there are walks around the town mentioning buildings...
You have All Saints now in the US.......the jeans are fabulous (men and women). Sign up and wait for the sales.
Also Paul Smith make the most incredible jeans!
Very nice Sophi ...thanks so much! Love the flea market and a decade ago found a real and old Lefkada hand embroidered pillow case!
Near Monastiraki there is a lovely boutique hotel called the O...
Went to the mens boutique in Selfridges....and tormented Mr sea roses that he has to start wearing the spike stacked boots. He's very pale in colour ...but he literally went more alabaster than ever!...
Actually like the cold (but then being brought up in a hot climate, you do long for it so much at times)......will probably go mad with uncle Serge, Papillion, Mona di Orio, PG dark scents and then...
Hope your day was lovely........thank you foxbins, rynege, Killiwa, thdiamondsea. It's so very kind of you.
Today after talking to the lovely (((La flaneuse))), *my black dog*...
Thank you so much Verona and Perfumed Lady.
This morning I wore a sample of the oud by Mona di Orio.............thanks to lovely (((La Flaneuse))).
Wow is it beautiful!
Hate wishing time...
Thank you so much everybody.
In sync with the lovely (((La Flaneuse ))) tonight in Tihota!. Was able to get this perfume from an absolute angel.
Mr sea roses adores this and thinks it is a...
Hello Kaelee and welcome back!
You have me intrigued....would love a rose perfume that eats up a city....goodness knows......so many need that!
N.CAL and Jon thank you so very much!!!!!!!!!
This is only the second time in my life I have reached a 1,000 posts on a forum.........the other was, you guessed it..........Novak Djokovic's...
N.CAL this restaurant is considered to be one of the best in the Balkans. From my knowledge they only take the finest wines. Alain Ducasse tried to give some competition in the King George hotel (and...
When mr sea roses takes a break from working I will try and post some photos of my grandfather vineyards. They are very high up on our island....but produce wonderful wine. This weekend they are...
Kalamata olives always win out!
But see the big Green ones in Hednic's fabulous photos....they are from Volos and called Volos olives. They are delicious, but because coming from a different area...
WOW the food photos!
That's a very very nice place..........been a very famous spot from Grace Kelly, Jackie O, President Clinton to President Putin a few months ago.
Yes N.CAL........when they built the metro it was a nightmare as they kept coming across different periods of the city and clues to the life of the inhabitants.
If you take the metro in Athens...
Might have been up in Saint George Lycabettus....could you see all of Athens?
Please be aware a lot of these photos are me snapping as Mr sea roses is driving
N.CAL every second year we have so much snow on the islands.
It's surreal being on a sandy beach and snow flutering down.
To eat there are so many places.........my favourite place is a fish...
Thank you Mr Hednic......but there is nothing to envy currently as I have suffered two cruel bereavements in recent times.
Koroneiki tree olives which came from the mani.........so very very similar to Kalamata olives!
Olive grove in Zakynthos55638
It's a place where Mr SeaRoses and I had an argument! He walked for 8 hours over it! Me- I went back to the museum coffee shop fuming as we had to meet up with friends in Napflion....and he just...
Yes N.CAL........my olive groves are there ....if you don't find that boring.......personally I love them!!!!!!
You are welcome sweetheart. Her name would have been Tanya....the family has owned it for two over two decades I think.
Have some more photos of the wild roads with spring flowers as we go before...
N.CAL that is Zakynthos in the Ionian it is one of the islands I come from and live on!
They are actually traditional buildings from the Mani. Clans would actually fight from those towers! There are a lot of deserted castles in Greece.......but as many are of archaeological significance...
Thank you N.CAL. Will look through my photos (most of them have people in them) and will try and post some of Greece and Scotland ....which is a country I adore.
This year I was ill and could not travel there much....and really did miss it. But usually I am there at least every two months.
Both our work involves lot of travel - so this last six months was...
It's a great city......but the traffic is becoming a nightmare. London and Moscow seem don't seem to be able to cope with these unbearable traffic jams.
Think we will soon be getting a lot more...
A friend was visiting and liked *Traversee du Bosphore* so I gave it to her. Turns out I didn't have a back up as I thought. So currently on a project to see what back ups I have and won't be parting...
Great to see Viffer and jujy54.
Wearing Jardin de Kerylos by PG. My favourite fig composition.
Hope all are enjoying this Sunday afternoon!
And beautiful London - despite the heatwave recently!
Oh that is lovely to know, it has a horrible area called Laganas, but if you sail around the island it is very beautiful.
Did you get to see the Blue Caves?
There is a part of Zakynthos...
No it's actually at the bottom of the Pelopensian peninsula.
Pelion, Thrace , Alexandroupoulis ....north and east of Thessaloniki are near the Turkish and Bulgarian boarders.
The Mani is...
Teardrop mentioned Mycenae. Mr Sea Roses loves this place.
When we go to the Mani our family stays in a place called Citta Dei Nicliani ....amazing history and you can wave to your cousins in the other tower!
In winter 3,500 people, this summer 60,000 - 80,000. In the Ionian Sea. On the other island I live on, Zakynthos ,(with the famous shipwreck beach) missed this August's festivities and not regretting...
Thank you so much Hednic.
Am trying to do a little database of my travels and perfumes I associate with those places !
This is my island.......but basically it's anybody's island...
Teardrop's country.......*This is Sparta*
My little island some years ago....up at Kathara waiting for my father who was coming in to the heliport ( we don't have an airport).
Three times a day. After showering in the morning, a quick shower after exercise and after evening shower.
Good morning all,
Revisiting Norne this morning to see if I feel differently about it now. Would love to get the same strength out of FeA.
Enjoy your Sunday!
Yes with other Jo Malones........but it didn't work for me with The Vert, nor a stack of houses. Unless you can smell nothing after two hours and apply ANY perfume.
Neither did Jasmine......but...
Have had spells of obsession with this fragrance as well. Have layered it with Menthe Fraiche and Sel Marine from James Heeley.
Tried it with Jo Malone various scents and Some l'artisan...
(((Dora))) - stay well.
Poudre de Riz...by Hutieme Art. A sweet sleeping aid.
Trying to organise my perfumes, in what I will want to wear in the coming months, and end up spraying too many and overthinking this organisation.
So after showering everything off....going to...
Happy Birthday Mumsy!
Wearing Hippie Rose by Heeley
Have a lovely Saturday everyone!

Rose des Vents today by LV.
Today I wore Violetta Fumee by Mona di Orio which I thought was beautiful. It's violets violets violets and some tobacco to me. It lasted very well for a violet but I used the entire little decant...
SOTE is going to be Ciel de Gum.
It's like having spent the day in G.U.M. you have just stepped into Grand Cafe Dr. Zhivago overlooking Red square on a magical Russian winter night.
You have me intrigued now (La Flaneuse) as loving this house.
The Oud overload in London recently makes me want to gag.......the temperatures have been so high and still go into Selfridges,...
N.CAL so sorry about your decant. Sometimes small things like that can drive you spare.
Wearing a sample of Mona di Orio Violette Fumee.........which is sold out. She really was a magnificent...
Me - I could bathe in it!
To put it into perspective ....some years ago I was invited to a *private do* where Evgeni Plushenko was going to perform. Was thinking about everything to wear and thought of...

Back up of Tient de neige extrait
Back up of Razi perfumes (they GET jasmine)

More of Mona di Oria ....no idea why this wasn't suggested...
La Flaneusessssssss we are both wearing Mona di Orio today. Am wearing Musc. Why did nobody tell me about this house before.......it's so beautiful.......it was La Flaneuse who...
Might add my funny story with an SA............*please please don't buy it, its got too much jasmine in it and I know how you get with jasmine* .
It's the nature of this industry. At Estee Lauder they will throw a 20 year old to the dogs with NO training except how to remind customers they need something besides the fragrance they just...
Teardrop I so agree with shopping online........right now *all saints* and other lines are so easy to browse online and you can send anything back.
After reading reviews on here and fragrantica...
Happy Monday to all!
Wearing Wild Berries from Keiko Mecheri. This at times reminds me of *Serbia's Golden* ....it's beautiful bountiful raspberries and also reminds me of the dignified way in...

So hope you are well!
Beautiful day here. Pure Azure by Phaedon this morning.
Farouche by Nina Ricci.
Falling into the Sea by Imaginary Authors.
Pleased you are feeling better teardrop.
Preparing myself to watch the tennis ...as such need a trusted favourite overdose to compensate for seeing Nole struggle.
So SOTE will have to be...
You put it perfectly for me thediamondsea! The same with Voyages. Do not need to go through a process of Ikebana flower arranging to spray my perfume on!
Love your list La Flaneuse!
My biggest 180 degree turn is Fougere Royale......at first this smelled to me like the herbs and flowers in my house (in Greece) while it was very hot had...
Very humid today (hope you are feeling better Teardrop) so wearing L'etrog acqua by Arquiste which was based on refreshment the day after the 7th day on feasting feasting of Sukkot.
Good morning all.
Mystra by Aesop. Stunning fragrance.
Regarding our conversation about creatives vs accountants I think we may both be right.
From what I now understand, the mens line in LV especially the expensive leathers are...
Thanks so much for those welcoming me back. It was a tough time to be sick with major sadness and trying then to take my mind of everything Nole(think officially i was his 17th fan according to his...
Hello all....nice to be back.....was ill for a period and still recuperating ...so reorganising perfumes.
Ncal and Vernona (and lovely teardrop) thank you for the detail about the vanilla's.
Thank you Starblind, I have always found the members who have contributed in this thread, especially people like Deadidol and Fiveoaks to have so much knowledge and information of fragrance, and yet...
Disagree completely deadidol. These perfumes were supposed to be launched years ago, and still won't go to China or the Middle East for a year. The land and cultivation of the flowers has been a long...
There have been three Louis Vuitton perfumes over it's history. They have lost the formula's and the perfumes have turned significantly.
The price for an original would be up there with *the...
