    Ken, I know you don't know me, but I wanted to convey my concern for you and your kitty anyway. Take good care, and I will think about you.

    SOTD will likely be Shiseido Murasaki -- soft floral with a slightly green, slightly powdery aspect.

    Feeling quite lovely in Givenchy III.

    I fail for words, Twolf, Riannon. Exquisite! There, that says it. The design, the execution, the thought behind it, the emotion embedded, the touch of the perfect beads--it's all quite exquisite.

    Xdattax, some cake for you! Continued happy birthday!

    Since I don't know how to post pictures, visualize here a big bouquet of Casablanca lilies. Don't know why, but I just think you'd like those.

    Today I'm wearing, for the first time, Une Fleur de Cassie, from a sample. Thank you, lushsoup! It's an absolutely gorgeous work of art.

    I'm with you, Lilybelle, but I take it one step further. I consider October to be my month, and I try to be especially self-indulgent for 31 days. I also encourage my husband and friends to spoil me, too.

    Xdattax and JaimeB, I hope our birthday month is wonderful for you, too!!! Are ther any other October babies out there?

    Today I'm sampling AOMASSAI by Parfumerie Generale. For now let's just say I can't keep my wrists away from my nose (thank God I have my own office!). This is one fascinating fragrance. Challenging and comfortable at the same time - just how I like 'em.

    Exquisite is the word for it! Beautiful detail as always, Twolf.

    (My latest needlework involved stitching a rip in the seat of a pair of football pants... neither joyful nor exquisite!)

    Twinning with tdem in Spiritueuse Double Vanille today. I love how this keeps shifting throughout the day.

    Happy birthdays to xdattax and JaimeB!

    "Just a skill?" You're far too modest! The pouch is indeed exquisite and I wish I was half as skilled.

    I took inspiration from early posters Lian and Ubu, and went with A la Nuit as well. I first tried this at the beginning of spring with some trepidation because I have trouble with jasmine. Wow! It's beautiful in the fall too! (Similar temperatures, admittedly). I never thought I want a big bottle of something full of jasmine, but this scent is pristine; perfect.

    Ahem.

    I fell in love with Datura Noir this summer during my mad testing trip to Harrods and it's been on my wishlist since (figured that a fragrance that made me "giggle with delight", as I think I reviewed it was definitely FBW). Today I was in London in a meeting all day, but on my way in, I dashed to Liberty's for a spray. THEN... at lunchtime the smell was so wonderful that I couldn't stop myself, I dashed right back and bought it. Whoo-hoo!

    P.S. Twolf - I've got two words for your magnificent piece of craftsmanship: JAW. DROP. The subject matter also helps; I'm a fan of dragons too.

    Givenchy was starting to fade, so I grabbed for the SotE early--it's almost always Iris Noir.

    Socalwoman mention of Carnelian has caught my eye. Here it goes on my test-while-on-vacation list.

    A very beautiful pouch you got there, R. A true gift! Twolf, that's really kind of you.

    Thanks to the people who congratulated me on the 3000 posts! I had no idea until you mentioned it Too busy today I guess.

    My SotE is the mysterious, wonderful Djedi. I was lusting for a dark, earthy and calming scent and find this one of the best examples. This is something I only apply very rarely, but when you do... heaven.

    I try to make it a month of celebration, but it's sometimes hard to convince my husband. His birthday is Oct. 20th.

    I'm wearing some vintage Miss Dior edt as my SotE. Now THIS is the real deal! :bounce: I don't care if it's old lady, so am I. It is divine juice. Oh why don't they make 'em like this one anymore? This is "the one" (of chypres anyway) for me.

    Have a great evening!

    ** Many thanks folks for the most kind remarks and good vibes sent his way. I personally think it helped him immensly, as all thought is energy and energy is what we are all about.

    As of right now, he is off the critical list and, having had bladder blockages cleared and urine buildup relieved with antibiotics given to stop any infection, is on the mend with an ETA home of 5 PM tomorrow. Gracias all!!

    Thanx for the EXcellent photo of the beautiful dragon pouch MizR. Needlework may be "only a craft" but it does take hand-eye coordination and the fortitude to do that "needle up at the right corner and down at the left corner" PURRfectly - so that the work is harmonious. And no one does it better than TWolf. I've done crewel and petite-point and bargello for years with some success, but quail at counted cross-stitch. It's like Bach fingering exercises.

    Thanx to Haunani I am spending the evening in the much-touted Dark Amber and Ginger Lily. Like Lime Basil and Mandarin it's just not working on me. I am devastated. What I'm getting is really cedar shavings and it's not pretty. May be the change of seasons.

    Shout out to KBE - whose pussy cat is on the mend. (From "the other" Thursday SoTD thread.)YAAAAAAY!! That was scary there for a while.
