ELdO Charogne for me, have a marvy Monday!
"Wovon man nicht lesen kann, darüber muss man schreiben."
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!
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
Snow is falling thickly here inthe Catskill mountains this morning...

The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions.
Ormonde Woman and Orris Noir
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?
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.

"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
Scent twins with Coconut! Dior Hypnotic Poison for me too. We smell so good!
Enjoy the day, everyone!

I'm wearing Guerlain Les Météorites. Haven't worn this for at least one year.
Very nice actually.

Serge Lutens Chergui
I am fragrance-free today but want to wear a SotE later. I forgot to transfer my little box of frags from one bag to another where I'd hoped to find Chergui, so I will raid the emergency supplies in my office drawer. I will go out probably wearing Musc Ravageur.
Good Morning everyone,
My SotD is Safran Troublant.

On this first day back from vacation, I am wearing Madame X. It is so enchanting. So glad to read that Ava Luxe will be up and running soon.
Wordbird, I must again try Bal a Versailles. It was my first perfume, at eleven, given to me by my grandmother.
