    Champs Elysees for the final day of January! For some reason it's not wafting up to my nose as much as it was on Tuesday, hmmm.... Still gorgeous, and feels so refreshing and unlike anything else in my collection! I'm really just loving it for its difference to everything else I own.

    Vétiver Oriental

    Stumped! It smells different on me now! I definitely get incense and leather. Somehow it has become a darker scent or my skin now 'translates' the notes in a different way

    It is like falling in love all over again

    Lovely to see you here again R, even more so in that wonderful outfit & fragrance. Funny how it's showing another side of its notes now!

    I started off with some Bois de Violette on the back of my hand, still contemplating whether I should buy it or not It's really nice, no?

    Now wearing Cannabis Santal by Fresh.

    I'm wearing "Tres Russe" (Institut Tres Bien). I bought it in France and I just love it. It starts with a strong note of verveyn and citrus, but then they melt into gorgeous violet and iris, with basenotes of amber, musc and tonka bean. At work people always ask me what I'm wearing. It's something special, at least for me.

    Because of family duties tomorrow, I'm sniffing & speaking today. Wearing - no, revelling in Muscs Koublai Khan from my wax samples that just arrived this week. Had to be done. Think I'm in love, but I'm just at the nice flowery, rich bit. Wondering if I'm going to become skanktastic later. Yee-hah!

    Playing with my new Ava Luxes wearing Heart of Glass. This will be fantastic in summer. All the richness you want from tuberose but still not heavy or heady. I got this in my first order samples more than a year ago and accidentally gave it away to my stepdaughter;. I sampled it only twice, but haven't been able to get it out of my mind, so this is practically a blind buy. I do not regret it.

    The very best days do not begin with a chat with a plumber. Even more so, I am told they do not begin with your mother telling you that you need to yank huge slabs of slate from the sand set section of the patio to expose the septic tank. DS #1 is my hero today, and if he’ll put the slabs back this weekend he can name his price. Next I wait for a plumber to tell me if I have damage under the downstairs baths.

    Yesterday I made myself mend all the tiny holes in my cashmere sweaters, so I am cozy in crimson and wearing out the last drops of Poivre Samarkand from Mike Perez.
