    Dark here, too...but that's because it's almost midnight!

    Going to take a warm soaky bath in Monili candied violets bath gel and then spritz on some Bourbon French Mon Idee.

    Melbourne Cup public holiday here so I went shopping - tried Kelly Caleche and Coco Chanel initially but eventually my wrists and forearms got so full of scent I can't distinguish anything anymore except maybe the Platinum Egoiste on the back of my hand. Oh no which one did I like?

    Gorgeous, sunny Autumn day here, after a cold Bonfire Night yesterday.
    Not dressed yet (day off!) but think I'll put some Sienne l'Hiver on after

    Getting going in Ivoire de Balmain for this cool, slightly cloudy Tuesday.
    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

    I love to start the day tuning in to my scent friends - seein' how they are and what kind of mood (and matching frag) they're in! From Grumpy in Switzerland to Sparkly in the UK to Meditative in Italy.....

    Promising to be warm and sunny here today too - so I'll go abroad in Neil Morris' Coral. Starts out real pink - almost bubblegum - must be the sweet pea. Then there's some fig and a rosy bit with sea air and sandalwood hovering underneath. I remember Coral as being one of the three or four NM's I knew I HAD TO HAVE....poverty intervened.

    But the market's perky....and the credit cards are venturing out from hiding....

    Today just feels like a Chanel no 5 day
    "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."

    Good smellin' folks !

    I'm wearing Grand Amour edp-
    WHY didn't I try this earlier ?
    It is amazingly complex- spans floral to hypnotically indolent, to ambery, and back again.
    A lot of movement here, very seductive.
