    Got a killer sore throat today - why do I keep catching things? It's really peeing me off!

    A generous spritz of Ambre Sultan makes me feel a bit better though.

    "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."

    (And Twolf, that is a fabulous poem... Befitting both the honoree and the author!)

    Today for me it's Hermes Vetiver Tonka.
    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

    Slept in one of Tinker's favorites as per the puzzle. Would anyone care to guess?

    Now I smell of about 26 fragrances, doing some pouring and measuring and exercising my trigger finger. Will notify the recipients after they are all mailed out.

    Happy Birthday to You, Stinkerbelle!

    You're right Brielle--soup is the cure for overworked teethies. Recently "invented" a new soup base: jar of salsa and can of refried beans. You can add anything to it--stock, veggies, rice, and it's instantly thick and flavorful.

    I do hope the poor teethies are much better today. Your soup base sounds wonderful, I love salsa, I usually continue eating it with a spoon once the tortilla chips are gone. I will have to give this soup a go, I do love soup so much.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TINKER! A new lovely bottle of Jasmine Full sounds like a great way to start the celebration!

    I'll have to try your recipe, Quarry. I just love salsa, the hotter the better, and some tortilla chips on the side.

    Today I am starting off in Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au The Rouge, a new favorite, amd reasonably priced at Marshalls, but as the weather is so warm I am thinking I will switch to Kadota and see how it does in the heat. I'm betting I love it!
