Van Harte Gefeliciteerd en veel Geluk toegewenst, op deze speciale dag,
Parabéns e votos de uma vida feliz
I am wearing today
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
Wow! How do you make that picture do THAT, Roberto?
Very impressed. I hope Eric is suitably impressed too.
Good morning everyone. In fact, where are you all this morning?
Tigs is maybe still in bed with her cold (get well soon, Tiger!) but surely our Far Eastern friends are up and at 'em? Coconut?
Well, I smell lovely today again. I'm wearing Donna Karan's Chaos from an original spiky bottle that Alicka snagged for me. What a star! (Alicka, as well as the perfume.) I like it a lot. Thank goodness they've reissued it.
Well, another busy housewife day for me, so I must go and get on with it.
Hope you all have a good day.

Going to bed late in Armani ~ Code
I'm trying a sample of The Different Company's Osmanthus. I meant to try Osmanthus Yunnan, but picked up the wrong sample .

Make it good, my dears, and stay WELL and SANE....
Happy Birthday from me, too, Eric ..what a fab cake !!!
Trying a sample of the fab Chanel Egoiste. Wow, love it, and need more
I'm wearing Musc Bleu from Il Profumo. It is lovely but the lonegevity is very poor. I absolutely covered myself in it four and half hours ago, but can barely smell it now. However, it may be still detectable to other noses, so I will resist applying something over it for a few hours yet.
Happy birthday, Eric! Wowsers, what a cake. I am epileptic and take Keppra to control it. Thank goodness it works!!!
My pleasure, Chaya. You smell delish.
L'Artisan Parfumeur Safran Troublant for me today. Have a lovely day, all!

Happy Birthday Eric.
"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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
Forgot to apply perfume this morning and so rummaged around my handbag to find an atomiser of Versace Woman, so that was my SotD. Later tested Madame X (Ava Luxe) and now in L de Lolita Lempicka.
Happy birthday Eric!

OOO my EYES! Good morning everybody.Today is the last day before we(my studygroup)have to hand in the assignment in Sociology.I'm usually very much in the last minute for these things,but for once I feel like everything is under control Sotd is Trouble.Weird how my impression of the scent changes if i haven't worn it in a while.Today I can defenitely detect the cedar and peach quite well. Happy birthday to all the birthday kids!Have FUN!!!!
Gefeliciteerd & Happy Birthdays!
Layered Tourmalin Noir with Jour de Fête today. Interesting combination.
It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.
A big thanks to all!! Coming on this side of the board is always like a warm bath.
Roberto, no offence, but that pic is horrible, LOL!! thanks anyway!
Tom Ford extreme for me today.
