    Thats the way to go Mike!!!

    I spritzed on Jicky EDP this morning and made Pan fried Catfish with Capsicum Compote for brunch. Will be heading out to get a pressie for my colleague's b'day.

    Good morning everybody!!

    Mike dear, every time I look at your avatar I feel the urge to make a huge meal for that poor boy
    At least a gigantic heap of blueberry pancakes........

    Inspired by the review about Louve I am almost edible today in Rahät Loukoum.
    Warm and delicious, just like the weather.

    Lazy Sunday........enjoy it, my dears.

    She never sweats. She would be never caught with unruly hair or worn out soles on her shoes. She wears pearls, big shiny spheres keeping the memories of the moonlight. She is detached, noble, some call her cold. Oh no, she is not the Snow Queen, just look at the fabulous white geraniums under her window sill, still so outrageously blooming despite the fact that she fired her gardener over a month ago. Never mind the memories... Never mind the moonlight...

    And me? I am wearing (let me peek in order not to avoid spelling errors! ) Etat Libre D'Orange Eloge du Traitre. Getting ready to go to work. Could not sleep all night again.

    This SO great. Gotta chase down a sample. (That is NOT a disguised plea!!!...you've done more than enough!) Adore Putain des Palaces.

    You wrote a review of Cabochard that I think of every time I put her on....aged ballerina teaching a class of kids in a haze of cigarette smoke and memories....you've missed your calling!! Or not. Sorry you had a sleepless night - know how that is.

    Morning is cloudy and breezy - drenched self in Mach Med to match the weather.

    Through the small opening in the hedge, mostly hidden, she watched as he slid the soaked tee shirt up and over his thick, curly black hair, well developed chest, abs, arms, all now wetly and amazingly defined in the brilliant noon sunlight. Highlight and shadow. Curve and plane. Clinging shirt no longer masking..hinting. She drank him in. Perfect...

    Then the wind shifted and she picked up his scent.

    Sweat..a slight saltiness..Mugler cologne. Her knees suddenly felt weak.

    Today I have layered Insolence with YR Vanille Bourbon. It took away some of the sticky feeling from Insolence, but now it just smells weird (very, very weird..).

    She rips through a set of 30 clean and jerks with the ferocity of a beast, then steps outside for a three mile run. After her bath, she applies Rasa liberally to her prominent pectoral muscles. Part animal. All woman.

    A coworker once said it smelled like paint. Best damn paint I've ever smelled. Maybe Sherwin-Williams should start a line of fragrances if that's the case.

    IMO it smells like cheap motel sex.

    She pulled the pillowcases from the eider down cuz they smelled like Pup sat and slid her hiney down. She screed the litterboxes, changed the paper in the cage, then looked at him doing dishes, and he met her smiling gaze.

    Romance performs on many different stages, my friends. My dear husband is wearing enough Stella Rose Absolute for the both of us.

    Started off late afternoon with Vol de Nuit parfum.

    Now I smell like a perfume shop... got all sorts of different scents on me after decanting. Lesson learned. Never decant while under the influence.

    well, gosh that is exactly what I was doing this afternoon!

    I liked the melange of scents, though it brought me just shy of asphyxiation!

    Experiencing the different scents side by side, one after another, occasional stray droplet on the carpet or splotch on the thigh, was like having a bunch of old friends come out and play with one another.
