    Sharing the house with tigs :wave:, but it's Putain des Palaces for me.

    However, after reading my brother's SotD, I long for some Vétiver Oriental as well, with its wonderful green leather vibe....

    Have a good start of the week, all!

    Le Baiser du Dragon parfum for me, while I try to figure out my tax return *groan*.
    Why do I leave everything until the last minute?


    later
    Nope, Bal a Versailles shouted to me as I reached for the Dragon's box. Since this is an 'at home' day I thought why not? This is my first try of it and wow! It's big! So this is civet, eh? Explains why I like Jicky so much.

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."

    On the vetiver bandwagon that seems to be running today. Hermes Vetiver Tonka for me...
    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

    Yeah it is overwhelming, and I never got around to listing all the scents I used to own and have given away, or the ones not listed in the directory.

    I think it is a form of OCD, mixed with a passionate love of fragrance. Guerlain fragrances have always been my faves, followed immidiately by Caron. I am sad to witness the the condition of Guerlain nowadays, and am very stingy in my use of the classics; seeing that they have decided to tweak historic formulas, including my three faves Parure, Shalimar and Chant d'arome.

    Guerlains and Carons are definitely at the top of the heap for me too, although I couldn't hope to ever own full bttls. of all the ones you have. Lucky you!

    I....I don't know what got into me. I applied kai lotion after my shower. I was just missing it, but it was so wrong. Not good. A bit later, while still disturbed, I splashed the entire sample vial of DSH Mimosa on one sleeve, and then a bit more later, DSH En Fleur on the other. I am compelled to share this, as I feel it may be some kind of warning. Am I headed for a breakdown? Should I seek help now?

    Shycat, at least you went for flowers.

    My last breakdown consisted of an attempt to wear Heeley Cedre. Realizing that this was all wrong and having no time to scrub - I decided to try and cover it with Montale's Sweet Oriental Dream.

    Oh yeah - then I went to work in an outpatient clinic.
