"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
I'm wearing Dior Addict today.
I've trademarked the color bleu
I need to have a break from scents for a few days. I have a flu with ear inflammation and can barely distinguish Dior Homme from Live Jazz. I hope my sense of smell will return to normal soon...
First day with my bottle of Dior Homme Intense
Parfum d'Empire - Iskander
Everyone is entitled to his own opinions, but not his own facts. Daniel Moynihan
Absinth - Nasomatto

Yr good bud,

Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

Prada. Great for a Monday at work.
First it was snowing, then it was snowing huge snowflakes and raining, then it went to heavy rain, then freezing rain, then light rain and snow, then a little hail, then back to rain/snow mixture now.
Cold, but Gucci Envy is keeping me warm.
