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

Another day in Carven's reformulated Vetiver for me. Interesting that I keep reaching for this, as well as other vetivers, in the end-of-summer hot mornings.
Yesterday I wore Gendarme V and that stuck with me through 24 hours, and it was strong this morning before the shower. Talk about tenacious. The smell is okay, but for its duration I should have been wearing it more during the summer.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

"Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. 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."
