    The rain just wouldn’t stop, I got woken up at midnight by the spectacular lightning and thunderstrom and I couldnt help but watched the blazing trees on the hillside. I searched for the SL's Rahät Loukoum and try to get back to sleep after a dab on each wrist.
    Made myself a delicious brunch (Mushroom Omelette) and dressed in Rasa. Will go to the video store and return the DVDs.

    Welcome back online, dimples, my fellow Djedi sampler.

    Spent all day yesterday weeding bent over. Thought I'd be stiff today, but proof that I come from hardy peasant stock: I'm ready for another day of the same.

    Applied some powdery lemon: Shalimar au Legere.

    We're also gardening today Quarry. My husband is removing a tree; lots of digging, sweating... and cursing.
    I'm planting out flowers in pots. Un jardin sur le Nil is wafting around me. I don't know about this one; it has an artificial smell that sometimes bother me....sometimes not.

    Layering is fun Margaretha. I read that Shalimar and Must de Cartier is a good comination; that will be my SOTE.

    Have a nice sunday folks!

    Jatamansi today. One friend sent me the bath milk and body oil, and another sent me a very generously-sized decant of the fragrance. The good feelings the scent will evoke from the generosity of friends is sure to enhance my enjoyment of this.

    2nd day under the aegis of Justice, I craved peppermint this morning. My spontaneously chosen combo was:

    Halston (Classic) + Guerlain AA Herba Fresca

    Result = lovely, clean, refreshing and very original. I smell good! SO complimented as well. I will definitely try this combo again.

    Halston
    Top: Bergamot oil, Green Note, Peach, Spearmint, Tagetes
    Heart: Carnation, Cedarwood oil, Jasmin, Orris, Rose, Ylang-Ylang
    Base: Amber, Moss, Musk, Olibanum, Patchouli, Sandal, Vetiver

    Herba Fresca
    Top: Cut Grass, Lemon
    Heart: Green Tea, Spearmint
    Base: Cyclamen, Lily of the Valley

    My equally beautiful, unique SotE combo is:

    Crown Perfumery Matsukita + Penhaligons Lily & Spice

    Result = I smell ... I smell like a beautiful, fairytale princess! This is better than I imagined!

    Crown Perfumery Matsukita
    Notes: Ylang-Ylang, Jasmin, Rose, Iris, Rosewood

    Penhaligons Lily & Spice
    Notes: White Lily petals, Saffron, Patchouli

    After being awake for 21 hours I am trying to get some sleep in Afire
    One of the delightful 'hugging scents' of the wonderful Mr. Neil Morris.

    Let's see if he is right. More lack of sleep I fear, but I am sure it will be be worth the effort.

    I decided to try layering my beloved Mitsouko for the first time.

    Chanel No. 19 EdP on my forearms from a splash bottle, followed by a good spritz of Mitsouko parfum on one arm and a patting together of wrists and arms.

    Still quite fresh (the application, that is), but... very spicy! Not at all what I was expecting. I will see how it wears over the day. (Gosh, it is only early afternoon here, and I spent the morning in the dregs of Jicky from yesterday. Being a few more hours behind is odd.)

    --

    On one arm, at the edges where there is more Chanel No. 19 and only a touch of Mitsouko, I like. The area where there is full-on Mits over the No. 19 is interesting but I don't much care for it. I might try for a touch of Mits over No. 19 again sometimes, probably once I have my Mitsouko EdT around again. I will keep wearing them alone for sure.

    Amazed at the longevity of Mimosa Pour Moi......but still enough lingers to try the gaw-juss Oiro from Mona di Orio....and I can't remember which one of you wonderful BNers sent me this sample - I know! It was our Dutch Dragon Riannon!! - and it's a wow. Opens with a hint of citrus, sweet pea is there and a heavy jasmine over vetiver. Ambery musk in the drydown - very sensual. May take her to bed!!

    Ain't that the truth. I usually wear Clive Christian X when I go out on a date. I usually get the you smell nice, but that's it. I have gotten some good compliments on the Alien from both men and women. I mean folks be writing the name down and everything. So, I knew he would like it because he is a lover of cologne.
