    Will probably sleep till 10am tomorrow, so would like to wish Good Luck to Quinpus. Per aspera ad astra and you probably Elephantum ex musca facis being so worried! You will do just fine, I am sure, and them students and judges (whatever they are called) will love you and the way you smell. Keeping my fingers crossed for you here.

    Wearing Violettes de Toulouse by Henri Berdoues to bed having sprayed it about 15 times all over. Very lady-like and subtle, and sweet!

    Smells exactly like the flower when I was travelling in Guilin, but it lacks staying power on my skin.

    Quinpus, I will start sending good vibes to you right now
    Eau des Merveilles is an excellent choice. And don't worry: that you are nervous is a good sign, really. That will keep you alert.
    Good luck, girl!

    Not only a blue Monday, but a frustrating one as well, I fear.

    Started the day in Rumeur (the new edition) from Lanvin. What a most *stay nice, dear* uninteresting scent. And I really hope I am not insulting someone's favourite scent. Deepest apologies.

    Then: Matsuri from Annayake.
    Lovely fragrance.

    But after the confrontation with the pile of mails I just think I better gather every lavenderscent I can find. Starting with Jicky

    I'm back to Fleurs d'Oranger from Serge Lutens today, with a layer of Goutal's Eau d'Hadrien body lotion beneath it. I'm waiting for the excellent SL drydown. The wax is hanging around a little too long for comfort this morning, but I know a miracle will unravel in the next hour.

    I spent the weekend decanting some of my favourites into miniatures so I can carry them around with me in a managable size instead of my bag weighing me down with proper bottles. I cannot go anywhere without my fix within reach. I'm overdue at the Perfume Abuse Clinic.

    Best of luck to quinpus.

    HM's Butterfly for me today, the kindergartners seem to love it. And I like it, too!

    It's sunny and cold outside...I'm in a bit of a "nothing serious and sparkling scent" mood today.What I did about that was to dig out my bottle of Provocative Woman.

    Quasso cruris to Quinpus, though with all of your scent sisters and brothers behind you, sweetie, and given how great you smell, I'd say it's gonna be a fine interview in all the best senses of the word!

    I'm sharing the MDCI house with BrothaG today, :wave: in Invasion Barbare.

    Notes: grapefruit, bergamot, violet leaves, white thyme, cardamom, lavender, ginger, cedarwood, vanilla and musk.

    Hoping this will be just the ticket, along with massive quantities of coffee, to get me through Monday.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Going for annual mammogram, so no deodorant. Black Vetyver Cafe and Ambre Narguile (applied not too heavily for technician's sake).

    Quinpus's speaking engagement will be a growth experience. And if she doesn't get the job, it's because she's destined for something finer, I'm sure!

    Starting my morning off with a little refresh of bedtime's Parfum d'elle by Montana..I'm really loving this one now (hooray for chypre day). Later after a long walk with my doggie-dear, I'll change into either L'Heure Bleue or Jicky for work.

    Much good wishes to Quinpus!

    Happy problem is, I'm getting so many fragrances that I really love, it's hard to choose, and extremely hard to test anything new. Today I go back to beloved rose with Creed's FdtRB.
