    Good morning everyone!

    The storm settled and I expect it to have snowed more outside, yesterday I was in a snowstorm..not fun.

    Wearing Datura Noir for a little bit of wamrth.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Lian, send some snow here, I really miss it! And btw, I've seen some pictures of Reykjavik made by a friend who was there...I absolutely love it! Can't wait to visit it!
    I'm wearing Burberry Brit today, suitable with the rainy weather outside.

    Happy belated birthday to Somerville Metro Man
    and my best wishes to ComDiva.

    I am wearing Divine - Divine, from a sample.
    I was tempted to buy this in Frankfurt, a chypre with white flowers, very nice.
    It reminds me of Ysatis now.

    I tried a lot of new things for me there, and I most liked:
    Fougere Benghal, ( but I am not sure I could wear it...),
    Santa Maria Novella Melograno ( but a lot of incence in the drydown...)
    Micallef Gardenia ( but I have already got Isabey which I think is better )
    Noir Patchouli-Histoire de Parfums ( I was smelling more rose in it and it was kind of thin comparing with other patchoulis )

    I think Patchouli Noir - Il Profumo was the best I tried, a very deep patchouli with a chocolate ' taste' in the begining and wonderful drydown ( if you like patchouli as I do ). Something between Jalaine and Mazzolari patchouli. ( But... I can't spent more on perfume! )

    I wish you all a very nice weekend!

    Still warm-ish here - early 70's - and I'm gong down swinging. Refuse to surrender to colder weather!!

    So!! Super-generous BlackCat sent me an adorable little sample (it's an exact replica of the larger bottle) of Éclat d'Arpège (thankyouthankyou!!) ...a rully good choice. There's only the slightest echo of it's big sister in this really pretty citrusy floral. Opens light and green with a whiff of liliac...gentles into a really authentic peony that settles into the lightest musky cedar. Young in heart and floaty.

    Was thinking about ScentMom today.

    She sent me a decant of Cinq Monde Pleuie de Petales de Roses.
    This is a gentle spicy rose / vanilla. Quite soothing and pretty.

    Good luck ScentMom! And don't let those docs push you around!

    Some gossip to keep your mind off things:

    Had the dinner last night with the very important ex. It went extraordinarily well. He's the healthiest I've seen him in 15 years. Been taking care of himself (mostly), got his teeth worked on (he was missing a couple the last time I saw him), isn't as cadaverously skinny (his diet has improved from pizza and beer), and has been religious with the sunscreen (he works outdoors).

    I dare say he looks almost as good as when I first met him 20 years ago.

    More importantly, I think we are both at a stage in our lives where we are content with what we are doing, what's going on around us and what we've become. I hadn't seen him this happy in ..... ever.

    Didn't really talk about the past or relationships or any drama. Just storytelling (he's a hell of a raconteur - and I didn't have to dump a lot of alcohol in him this time) and lots of questions about who each other is today.

    It was a well spent couple of hours getting to know each other again. And he seemed pleased with who was on the other side of the table too.

    Yay ScentSis I'm glad it went well.
    ScentMother let us all kow how it turns out today. I'm with Lady R you will be fine....or else there will be an army of angry Gingerbread Men on the move.
    My birthday present from my lovely wife and my marching orders for the morning are to go spend the $500 gift card I got at Copley Place on some new perfume.
    I've been thinking about what I will get all morning. The new Malle is in and Serge Noir is in. I want to try the new Polo Modern Reserve or should I finally spring for a Rosine. There are a couple of L'Artisans I don't own.
    Anyway I'm scentless for the moment but I'll be back later with the results of my spree.

    Working on item description for an upcoming expansion and all I can say is that the press releases for new perfumes are excellent material to study the art of writing a lot without actually saying much about a product.

    Rain and gloom today. Creed Tabarome Millesime will fill the bill as SotD I think.

    Chilly and overcast this morning, with rain expected later...which we need. It's supposed to get up to 58F here today (whimpers). I'm wearing Trésor edp by Lancôme this morning. I think my little bottle is starting to fade on me. I've taken good care of it, but I think some fragrances just have a shelf life no matter how carefully you treat them. Oh well, no biggie.

    I hear that!

    Sakecat - I'm glad it all went well. What fragrance did you finally decide on?

    I hope everyone enjoys their Friday, whatever the weather.

    Hello All,

    A rotten day for me here, though the weather is bright and breezy.

    1. Am migrainous.
    2. Have decided it's probably for the best if I leave my job, after 6 years of battling.
    3. Have decided I officially can't get along with the other women at my night-school class. Big shame. The class last year was lovely.

    Consoling myself with the muted warmth of L'Artisan's Safran Troublant.

    SMM, sorry I missed your birthday. Hope you have fragrant fun picking out a scent. Spoil yourself!

    In anticipation of a great weekend for us all,

    Soir

    All your good vibes got through... I AM FINE!!!! :breathing again:

    Thank you so much for all the support and good wishes... and SMM, your lovely wife is a marvelous gift-giver, as well as a marvelous spouse otherwise! Go spend that $$ and enjoy every fragrant second!

    (BTW, there will be birthday cake headed your way in the next couple of days. Save room).

    No scent this morning as I didn't want to have any negative connotations. Tonight it will be Amouage Jubilation XXV.
    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
