LOUVE by Serge Lutens (first time from sample - thanks Ruggles)
"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in — or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."
-- Eckhart Tolle
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Black Cashmere again today.

but the key to failure is trying to please everybody."
SotE = Ambre Russe from a sample ala Taolady.

I'm wearing Love's True Bluish Light today. This has been driving me crazy all day, but for some reason it is reminding me of Douce Amere today Have I totally lost my mind?

Venezia was wonderful today. It stayed with me all day, warm and smooth... a beautiful oriental.
Now I'm enjoying Caron's Violette Precieuse -- love the violets and orange blossom. Thank you Kyra!
I'm simplifying my life. For Sale Thread (some niche, some designer):
I woke up craving Nuit de Noel today, so I dug out my sample and it was well worth it. Gorgeous! Now am ending the day in YR Voile d'Ambre.
Congrats to the "birds" and to indiscreet.
Another belief of mine; that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.

Playing with AL Incense Noir. Complicated feelings about this one,so far.
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.
yay congrats purplebird, wordbird and indiscreet!

In her bottled up is a woman peppery as curry,
a yam of a woman of butter and brass,
compounded of acid and sweet like a pineapple,
like a handgrenade set to explode,
like goldenrod ready to bloom.
