    Goodmorning my dears at this indecent early hour

    But: wide awake and ready for the next 'close encounter of the third kind' with clients.

    I think a few drops of Chamade extrait will be perfect for today

    Have a great Thursday!

    Update: I only now had the opportunity to read yesterday's SotD

    Wordbird: so happy for you that things finally went well. And of course you can bring your decant collection for a playdate with mine. Maybe they will breed
    Ah, the patter of tiny sample feet.........

    So very relieved that Mr. Neil is lenient to unfaithful women.

    Yikes! Outdoor thermometer down to thirty plus this ayem (0+ to Celsians) - couldn't wait for Official Neil Morris Day - had to draw Midnight Flower around me for sexy comfort. A satin blend of flowers and citrus and my fave figgy over amber and a twitch of patchouli.

    Hello, all!

    Wearing In Fiore Fumee d'Ambre on this chilly, clear autumn day.

    Notes: Incense, vetiver root, patchouli leaves, musk, sweet amber.

When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    A co-worker called in so I will be picking some extra hours this afternoon on what supposed to be my day off! But, before that -- off to paint my MIL's bedroom, the color she picked is none less than... red!

    Congratulations to our both Birdies: Wordbird on selling her house and Purplebird on getting the job! Time to celebrate, yes?

    Still faithful to Neil Morris in Intimate Gardenia. It is my Day 5 in his fragrances, and there are some tendencies forming up: first, he has something meaningful to say as a "nose", and then he elevates and energizes the meaning in balanced ingredients, and this combination makes his point all the more meaningful and memorable. He lets you know that he knows that you know what the good fragrance is, and you are in it together!

    Yikes, I'm up late. Basenotes sucked me back in, but if I want net time these days I gotta give up sleep time. At my age, that's a bitter choice! I luxuriated in Rose parfum, a lovely soliflore, and lots of it, reapplied as often as I felt like it. See all you dears when I wake up!
    Please, spritz responsibly.
