    The first of February and I just watched......ducklings!! So, I filled the house with daffodils and am praying for an early spring.

    I'm wearing dh's Givenchy Insense! Saw it on the dresser and had a spritz! lol. It has such a beautiful warm and spicy dry down! I'm not feeling very well this morning (its time of the month) and I've got cramps but wearing this feels really comforting. Like a hug in a bottle! Don't know if I would get away with wearing this scent outside the house though - but I'd love to!

    Have a lovely day all!

    Samsara Guerlain EdP. It's a laster definitely. I put on one spray last night and in the morning I could sniff it all over. Then I also decided to wear it to work today.
    By contrast, if I do this with many other fragrances, most notably with my favorite No 5, the next day there is NO TRACE (and I mean NONE) of any fragrance lingering anywhere.

    Samsara is a "work horse" and I love those!

    A story to make you all feel lucky:
    My perfume-loving friend of long-standing, M, who is recovering from pneumonia by spending the winter tethered to oxygen machinery at home, just got last month's electric bill: $500 (she also had heaters going for some of her animals). And her hospital bill: $30,000 (she's self employed). This week her plumbing sprung leaks from the cold, and she's dealing with it with pots and pans until a very-busy plumber can finally get to her. M's gentleman friend was out of town for 10 days. The furnace at his house stopped working at some point, the plumbing burst, soaking two stories and destroying a state-of-the-art recording studio.

    Wow Quarry, after reading such a sad tale I do not feel quite as chilly as before. I am quite thankful now, so I will go with a lighter choice than I had planned.
    I will now be wearing Mouchoir de Monsieur by Guerlain, I just don't feel as 'cold' as I did before.
    I do hope things start to look up for your friend, and hopefully spring will make a quick arrival, so her burden will be lessened.
