    Ah, Mrs Tigs, do you smell gorgeous!! Great wake-up call.

    Yesterday: Kenya's Joshua Chelanga won the Rotterdam Marathon for professional runners. For amateurs however the race was halted due to the heat!!
    The Netherlands had the dubious honour to be the warmest country in Europe, even hotter than Egypt
    I am thinking of packing my suitcase for a stay at the Outer Hebrides, wearing

    Fleurs de Chocolat.

    There may not be a perfume shop within 100 miles and the sheep are rather smelly, but they have my kind of weather .....and pubs!!
    Well, I suppose our USA members are also not completely happy with their snowstorms.
    Global warming effect, anybody?

    Have a safe start of the week!

    Two hours ago I coverd myself in Jo Malone's Vetyver, combined with JM Orange Blossom. I thought they were doing great till half an hour ago I decided to try my new sample of Andy Tauer's L'air du Desert Morocain which has blown the Jo Malones out of the water. It is only a couple of spritzes on the back of one hand, but it's potently dominant. I'm not complaining - it's great stuff. I will keep my nose on it to make sure it doesn't turn sweaty, but thus far I'm very happy with it.

    10 Corso Como today. Reminds me strongly of the smell of birch leaves, so this would be a good fragrance for spring.

    Sharing the house with Mrs. Tigs today and becoming one with the grey, rainy day here in CdG's Kyoto.

    And STILL trying to get through customs with all my decants to meet up with Riannon and BrothaG at the airport... though thanks to my superlative acting skills , the authorities have actually allowed me through, I just seem to have gotten a wee bit held up in the Duty Free's fragrance aisles. They don't have any Pralinki....

    Eluard, you can put your muddy Spanish boots on my end of the table, I've given up on polishing it 'til my kids are out of the house. You just have to give me occasional access to a pulse point, and score a bottle of Kubek Sheepsworld 083 for dear Riannon.
    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.

    I've just topped up my Andy Tauer L'air du Desert Morocain as I've washed my hand a few times since the first application to a hand this morning. Just a moment after I sprayed it one of my colleagues came in to my office and asked what is that nice smell, and how nice it is to smell something different around here sometimes.

    That is the first time anyone at work has ever commented on my perfumes. I was very surprised to hear a compliment. I'd always assumed there was a quiet resistance to my perfumes. I've been expecting the resistance movement to fire a shot across the bows and ask me to desist from wearing them, so I'm very encouraged to get a positive comment and question from an unexpected source.

    Well done Andy Tauer, you squared up to my macho boys very well there.

    Thanks my dear GM... I am enjoying it so far, tonight I had chili crab and butter crab for dinner. Then I went to a local supermarket which opens 24/7. They have this aisle of perfume from ranging from the Jovan Musk to various brands or no-frills. I have locked my credit card in the safe

    Squeezeweasel, I was tempted to bring more but I ended up just bring a bottle of Floret, a decant of Douce Amere and a sample of Eau de Noho. Normally, I would bring more but I had to restrain myself from lugging to many things and ended up not using them. Bring less gives myself a chance for trying new things or ended up maxing out on my credit card...
