    Hi all,

    I'm wearing Santa Maria Novella Patchouli today. Happily, no plans whatsoever. Sometimes a down day is a very good thing.

    Happy birthday, Shades!

    Today I received Serge Lutens Five O'Clock Gingembre. It completes my six-bottle SL 50 ml collection unless I decide to go for Arabie.

    I suggest Tomales Bay, north of San Francisco. Rugged coast, lighthouse, oyster farms, not too touristy, very romantic. Mr. Lark and I honeymooned there.

    My scent of the day is Marni by Marni....

    I would say the cardamom predominates. The fragrance has a plush suede feel and is extremely potent.

    Today my blind buy, Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles, arrived on my doorstep. I immediately jumped in the shower and applied it. It was love at first sniff. I'm catching up on SL 50 mls before they...

    LOL! Now I want to go out and buy some pearls to wear just for the purpose of dramatically clutching them when appropriate. What a hilarious thought!
