    Default SotD Wednesday 29 October

    I just read the sad news. Oh Chaya, I am hugging you, my sweet woman.
    No matter what, when your mother dies you can only feel the loss of a part of your past, a part of yourself.
    All my love to you, so far away and yet so close to all of us.

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    another day in Sacrebleu
    "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."

    You folks are unbelievable...so much a part of the healing process.
    I didn't feel support like this EVER-

    Not when I had cancer surgery in December of ' 81;
    Not when I was paralyzed in ' 85;
    Not when my father dropped dead a week before my 18th birthday.
    Not when my beloved grandfather died in my arms when I was 12- NEVER.

    You can't imagine how grateful I am.
    I hope you can feel it, though.
    I love you all, no lie.

    Isaac will come home today, we will go together to gather her ashes.
    I will wear Sortilege- a fragrant tribute to a woman at the peak of her allure, elegance, and beauty- even if she was tormented with mental illness, even then.

    What a downer I am, eh ?
    Sorry about that.

    I loved the mimosa pictures- so fluffy and lovely, shades of Provence for me.

    Thanks to all of you, for your pm's.
    You are a blessing.

    I am wearing L'Artisan's Orchidee Blanche for a day so disapointing I could cry. Or maybe I am crying already.

    Before I left the house I sprayed Jo Malone's Dark Amber & Ginger Lily.

    If I had Sortilege I would wear it today for Chaya. I will try to get some soon, along with Perfume d'Ida in honour of our dear friend in her dark days.

    Ah! Chaya....release for both you and your Mother. You haven't lost her...obviously she's very much with you. Warm embraces...warm tears.

    Chaya, my deepest condolences. I hope you can spend the next few days remembering the woman you describe as alluring, elegant and beautiful while you wear your Sortilege.
    Lean on your boys I know they'll be there to catch you.
    May all of this go swiftly for you.

    Wearing another birthday acquisition:

    Ralph Lauren Polo Modern Reserve

    Been a lot of talk about this one on the men's board and my curiousity won out. I'm glad it did as this is quite a nice one on me. It has the traditional Polo beginning but with something spicy added. It is in the heart where things get very different as there is leather to go with the vetiver, which is a much better partner than the traditional tobacco note from the original. The base is all woods as in the original and since that was what I liked most about the original I'm glad they didn't fool with it too much.

    I hope everyone has a great day.

    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
