Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

Happy birthday, Cologne Junkie!!!
For scent today (community service clean-up in the neighborhood where I work, then to little league opening day for DS#2, and finally off to a folk festival that runs 'til 11 p.m.), I am basking in the perfect spring floral from the divine Twolf, L'Artisan Jacinthe des Bois. I adore this, though fear I should be more delicate and wraithe-like (with long, wood-nymph type hair) to really do this fragrance justice. A light, elegant hyacinth soliflore.

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

It's a toss up between Grey Flannel and Prada Amber pour homme at the moment.
I'm not going to be dressing particularly smartly today, so I suspect I will probably go with the Prada.

L'Artisan Parfumeur L'Eau de l'Artisan
So clear, so fresh and so long-lasting. The odours are reminiscent of the sun-kissed countryside … A tonic blend thanks to the graceful, subtle succession of lemon, verbena, mint and basil. L’Eau de L’Artisan compliments both men and women on lovely sunny days.
Finally decided on Grey Flannel, just loving those violets.
Right, now I'm off to the pub to watch the Chelsea v Man U game...
I'm up early on my birthday getting ready for the AIDS walk. It's my 4th year in a row walking with my friend Courtney & her cousin Mike. I'm wearing L'eau D'Issey Summer '08.

After yesterday's orgy of confections (Loukhoums and chocolate during the day - dreaming of sweet orientals all night) needed a refresher so am awash in TBS' Zestini - absolutely lives up to it's name. Just like that bitter bright spurt when you've twisted the zest into your espresso after Death by Chocolate!!
And HAPPY HAPPY to Cologne Junkie!! :bounce::bounce::bounce:
