Last night we had fog in Miami - we NEVER have fog. It made driving around (with my stereo in my car blasting, like it always is) like something out of a movie. Wonderfully surreal. The temps have inched back up, it's hot and sunny this afternoon - suntan weather, actually.
Woke up feeling sort of 'grey', I had to force myself to do some errands around the house to get my mental gears moving. While I did this I dabbed on some of Momma Quarry's favorite's (first time from a sample):Sexy 9

I am not a musk person. In fact, as many of you know, I can't smell many musks (nothing!). But I do enjoy a good fruit note and this one doesn't disappoint. The blackberry is very tart, almost red-currant-esque. I wish I could smell the musk to see how it intermingles with the berry notes, but nonetheless the vanilla and tempered sweetness helps me visualize a bowl of berries, dusted with sugar and vanilla extract. I like it Quarry! I also feel, at least olfactorily, you are here with me today keeping me cheered up.
Bear hugs to all of you in bitterly cold weather = stay warm!
