Fiat justitia ruat cælum.

If I have to be stuck somewhere, this is a great fragrance to be stuck with!
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

Fumidus by Profumum (2nd time from a sample - thanks Michael)
Just perfect for a blast of cold weather here in Miami - anyone got a fireplace I can lay next to?
I decided what to wear. My sample of Plus Que Jamais from the lovely Dee.
This seems to be the year of my finding Guerlains that I love. But WHY do they have to be of the likes of Plus Que Jamais and Attrape Coeur????
see below link to humorous story about PQJ:
"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
