Miss Dior for me this morning.

The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions.
AG Passion - HAGD!
Santa Maria Novella The Queen's Cologne. Need it to wake me up
this morning. Remembrance Day here today - maybe I should be
wearing Poppy Moreni instead!
Starting the day in Neil Morris Aegean.
Christian DiorCOLOGNE BLANCHE

Ack! Good afternoon already
Like Indiscreet I can't say goodbye to Neil Morris yet and will join her in Aegean. Refreshing and calming.
Before going to bed last night I sprayed some Midnight Sea and slept unusually peaceful. Let's see if I can get a prescription for this from my GP

Like Indiscreet and The Dutch Dragon I am on an NM roll and am starting my day in light'n'lively Coral - 'cause I love bergamot and sun and sea and sand!

I'm wearing Prada today - now I really am running out of my sample! My lovely hubby has hinted that it might be a winter gift season gift, so I don't dare buy it. Maybe I should start sneaking into Sephora while wearing disguises?
Having brunch with the extended Perez family on this cool crisp Sunday in November = Vetiver Extraordinaire by Frederic Malle
"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
need something light today.
Eau de Camille by Annick Goutal.
I am thinking Parisian courtyard with sunlight streaming down through greenery, me in my book lined sitting room, the scented air wafting in through the open door....
my children nearby....
"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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
Guerlain Vetiver (current edition)

Went hiking today... 3.5 hours walked + 4 blisters...
Wore Gardenia Musk by Ava Luxe, it smelled really nice and it has a really good staying power!
I'm still flying from Neil Morris Fragrances Day yesterday (FUN!!!!), and so will be joining Indiscreet, Riannon and Taolady in continuting the party... in Sloan's choice for yesterday, Skincense.
Quite literally incense for the skin... All *kinds* of good, spicy stuff in here. Have a wonderful Sunday!!!

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
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
As for me, today's selection:

Joining Riannon, Indiscreet, Taolady, Sloan with the house and in particular with ComDiva in the fragrance. Wearing Neil Morris' Skincense today.
Have a great Sunday!

I'm simplifying my life. For Sale Thread (some niche, some designer):
Been to the gym and had a bath now so I've switched to Coral. Trying to make up for missing yesterday!
Fendi Palazzo for me today.
Sniff and let sniff.
Feeling like roses, so it's Penhaligon Elizabethan Rose today.
Irritating exchange on ebay: someone had a fragrance that was advertized as "new" but was obviously out of the box, so I asked if it was really new and just removed for the picture. The reply I received was that the scent was new and unused but, "just sampled a few times" by the seller. I read that as "used" (but not liked). Does anyone else think that "sampling" a new bottle is not the same thing as "using" it? If so, when is something considered "used"?
Now I'm wearing Brit Red. It's not a complicated scent, nice and mindless for a snuggle with the duvet and a DVD.
I have been to work - wearing BVL Black. I love it, but don't think it last very long on my skin
I'm wearing Black Cashmere today for a day of football.
I've trademarked the color bleu
APRES L'ONDEE for me today.
Hope everyone's enjoying their weekend!
"Woe to the one who's love of elixirs, grows into madness"
I can't find my decants of Black Cashmere or L'Heure Bleue . Yes, that is my heart that you hear breaking.
Nuit de Noel may seem like a strange scent to clean the house in, but sometimes you just want to smell a certain thing.
Another belief of mine; that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.
