    Good morning! Great choice, G, Dilmun is wonderful.

    I am wearing your Incense Rosé and it is still remarkable that this one is such a demure rose on me and the incense takes over almost immediately after the top note.

    Since incense is one of my most loved notes, I am probably more perceptive of it

    Have a good start of the week, all.

    For starters today I am layering Jo Malone Verbenas de Provence underneath Kohdo Woods Night, also JM Lime Basil Mandarin under Night on the other arm, in a bid to beat the basil note into submission. The lemon combo is pretty refreshing, and the LBM one is definitely better layered than not! Though of course Night is gorgeous on its own.

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."

    Thanks for all your kind words and prayers sent our way, there is no devastation at all, Ike did his thing, however, in SE Texas Houston -- Galveston region. These reports on TV are just awful: no power, no drinking water, no gasoline, no stores opened. And the Mayor of Galveston saying "Please do not come back until we say you can" is terrible too. What is going to happen with the animals in their pyramids (Moodie Gardens)? My prayers are with LadyLoneStar and her family these days. Who else do we have down there? Beachroses (I saw her signed off on MUA a few weeks ago)?

    We are dry, breezy and cool at 62 degrees F. L'Artisan Timbuktu for me.

    Oh I know--OJ is an amazing company. I ordered Ormonde Woman in the EDP about a month ago, and when it came to me I was floored with the packaging and service. I felt like it was a holiday.

    SOTD, once again, undecided. Still smelling the Black Aoud I put on last night. Yes, it's kind of gross, I haven't gotten up and going yet this morning. My regular schedule collapsed, which means I have more time to play here: the server shutdown yesterday made me need my BN fix more than expected.

    Have a great day everyone!

    Twolf, I'm glad to hear the Dallas area weathered Ike, and my thoughts are also with Galveston and its occupants. Although it's good they got notice to leave, it's still very hard to to have to evacuate indefinitely (I had to do it for the fires down here several years ago).

    Lushsoup, a late start isn't gross, it's luxurious! (Spoken like the true sloth that I am. )

    SotD: teaching and traveling, so something relatively light. Looks like yet another day in Jo Malone Sweet Lime and Cedar (I really dig this stuff).

    I'll be on the road a lot this week for work but will try to get my daily BN fix if possible.
