Gentle, comforting Hiris for me today.
Have a fab Friday and wonderful weekend!

After the disaster of losing Jicky as 'most beloved fragrance', I have now turned to her glorious sister Shalimar.
The bottle of extrait is over twenty years old but still it smells wonderfully warm and sensual. One of Guerlain's greatest.

P.S. Something seems wrong with the post-editor today, I can't automatically change fonts or the font style... anyone else with that problem?

Eau de Cologne Imperiale - Guerlain
Wishlist is pointless.
I have "borrowed" my son's Dior Homme (well it was me that bought it
for him in the first place!). It is surprisingly wearable on a woman.
Cold and grey outside today.
The construction work is still going strong at home. I am wearing the D&G feminine, hoping to get some water back for shower and switch to something else.
Escada Collection...heading out of town to Ohio to visit my family and spend a couple of days at an amusement park we love ( lots of roller coasters!). Have a great weekend everyone!
I am wearing Stargazer by Yosh on this wonderful, warm and sunny Friday.
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Another sunny day in Norway. I'm wearing Aimez Moi today.
Have a great weekend everyone
For our first 'cool" (72 F overnight) south Florida morning since last Spring..

Molecule 01 - Escentric Molecules. After a hard night of partying at the annual German Beer Night, I needed something that smells good, is reasonably unchallenging and flies under the radar.
Oktoberfest - bad for the liver but great for the soul.....
In honor of - and thanks to - our twinkling Tinks....Fantasia des Fleurs....her "Happy Frag". (No problem with the editor Brotha - could it be your machine?)

I'm with Tigs - gentle Hiris on a chilly, windy, grey day.
Sakecat - here in German-speaking Switzerland the opening of the Bavarian Octoberfest just across the border was televised last weekend and all week there have been regular programmes featuring dirndls, lederhosen and steins. It looks very tempting! Maybe next year - it'll take me that long to find a babysitter.

Today I'm sporting Coco Mademoiselle courtesy of Divatologist's recommendation.

Fissore Cashmere for Women for me on this slightly overcast fall day.
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

Lalique Le Parfum
but the curious thing about this fragrance is that after about 15 minutes of wearing it I no longer smell it on my skin. I know that it's there because I every now and then catch whiffs of it in the air around me, but no matter who hard I try pressing my nose to my skin I smell nothing. This is pretty rare for me, but same thing happens with Ormonde Woman.
Any comments on that?

TGIF & TGIO!
Our long weekend has officially begun!
God Save the Queen & Her Birthday!
Perfumer's Workshop TEA ROSE & Jean Patou SUBLIME ... brilliant!
Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all. W.SOMERSET MAUGHAM
The day started rather chaotic and awful.Had to run to the bus to make it in time for work.Jicky calmed me down somehow.After work I was craving some leather and now I wear the fabulous Cuir de Russie by Chanel from a decantLet the weekend begin(all though it's my "work weekend":P)
Oh - and my Dad used to drag us to Oktoberfests when we were kids (9-10 years old or so) as part of our "cultural exposure". I will admit, it was mighty interesting, if only to dream that one day I too could drink beer upside down without spilling it all over myself.
If the Oktoberfest near you has more acts (I doubt that they are just televising beer drinking), and your kids are old enough - it might be interesting to take them too. They might not enjoy it at the time, but they'll remember the experience as an adult.
I'm wearing Musc Ravageur today. :wave: waves to my scent twin Indiscreet!
I've trademarked the color bleu
Delrae Bois de Paradis. Can't smell most of it because of my sniffles! Another week of 90 degree temperatures in the forecast.
