    Yes dear, I am on a much needed retreat. But would I ever leave you completely? I am so glad you will be published again

    I am just back from the coast and it is still very, very dark. Not many things can compete with the sight of high waves crashing on the coastline at night. You can feel the energy rising in your body and soul.

    This is the first time in ten days I am wearing a fragrance.. And then you better make sure it is a splendid one.

    Vetiver, Oak moss, Amber and Leather.
    The embrace of beauty. Truly, madly, deeply in love


    Have a good start of the week!!

    Wow to Riannon. Not only Djedi, but Djedi to a nose cleansed of all other scents. That alone could be worth a retreat.

    Can't post Monday yet- still very Sunday here.

    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

    Oh, Riannon.
    You're wearing Djedi.

    I can smell you from here in my imagination.
    I saved all of those lovely descriptions you sent to me by our Basenotes friends from the time when the little vial was passed around.
    I was deeply affected by that experience.

    Happy birthday mikeperez!
    I want to know what your celebration will entail... at least the dinner/drinks/movie/dancing part. The rest, you might have to keep to yourself.

    I plan to take some perfumes with me to work today (teaching in the schools) as a creative writing exercise.
    The student will smell an aroma and free-form write any associations that come to mind and then make up a dramatic story to go with it.
    It will be a loosening-up exercise for us to get to know eachother at my new job.
    Fun, eh?

    After I come home, I think I will wear Une Folie de Rose.

    Yes, sweet Bird, that memory was also on my mind when I sprayed Djedi this night. A dark sleepless night like the first time I opened your little vial.
    It seemed the only appropriate moment for it and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity you gave me

    I'm sooo excited about how I smell I have to share this.

    Today we visited Zurich and went to Oswald's Parfumerie - the most amazing, legendary place. Before leaving home I'd lightly spritzed a little Daim Blonde on my decolletage, lkeaving the wrists free for trials.

    My left wrist smells of Dzing!, my right wrist smells (reeks divinely!) of Tabac Blond EXTRAIT.

    I am in smelly heaven. I am not washing these wrists until they are really really dirty.
    And to top it all off, my dear hubby bought me a bottle of Tabac Blond EDT. Isn't he a honey?

    Scent of Bowling Evening: Montale's Blue Amber

    I've decided that Bowling Night is the perfect time to test scents on men. Especially since BF pretty much only reacts differently when he hates what I'm wearing (hey - you may want to take a shower) or loves what I'm wearing (you know where that goes....).

    I figured the guys on my bowling team were a good baseline for "fragrance attractiveness". Since 2 of the 4 are wine freaks - they are also attuned to scent.

    Reactions:
    - One of the wine guys thought it smelled like Catawba wine (fruity, a little musky, dry)
    - My "Bowling Boyfriend" (the guy I use to keep the league rednecks away - because he looks like an intelligent version of Mr. Clean) kept standing really close to me. And was mighty affectionate......If I were only single......
