    Yay, well done Tigrushka. Smelling divine today too!

    Haha yes, we crazy people in the upside down hemisphere eh? Cheers mate! Hope you northern dwellers aren't too cold! I hardly bother with different fragrances for different weather - on my skin, very few fragrances get cloying - even in the summer.

    It's actually surprisingly cold today. Love's True Bluish Light as chosen by Ineespenes, another brilliant decision for my SotD! Cheers, Ineespenes.

    Good vibes and fingers crossed to those braving doctors appointments, hope there is nothing wrong! Hugs to you and everyone who needs them!!!

    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..."

    I'm wearing Jean Claude Ellena's Hermessence Poivre Samarcande. Notes include pepper, chili pepper, oak, cedar, chinese moss, and musk

    I dithered at the wardrobe this morning, but finally made the perfect choice. Contrary to the experience of some people, this fragrance has a decent longevity on me.

    Enjoy your weekends.

    Iceland is covered in snow and it´s stunning to walk to work with all the christmas lights around the neighbourhood combined with the white fluffy blanket. Feeling more in control now but the feelings still linger a bit. I blame the season too.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Wooooh, I drank a tiny bit too much yesterday going out. Clutching my head now.

    In dream-related news: no exes. Or people, even. I own this Sansevieria plant, and I dreamt I cut its leaves like they were hair. Right down to the earth. Weird. No sleep-walking, though, it was fully intact in the morning.

    Haven't yet decided on a Sotd, but it might well be Jil Sander Sun.
    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.

    Amber & Lavender Cologne by Jo Malone (2nd time from a sample)



    This reminds me of a really basic fougere (like Brut) and it smells extremely well post-shower, but I'm not sure I need a full bottle.

    all this talk of Fleurs d'Oranger makes me want to wear it today
    "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."

    Welcomewelcome PinkPepperPlum (what a great name!)

    GEEZE - Petruccijc...that visual for Minotaure is a whole bunch...um...better than my plain old bottle. Grrr-r-r-r-r-r...

    And Roberto - you've done it again. Beautiful shot of the Pucci.....

    Had lunch yesterday with a dear old friend who gave me a fistful of cash for Xmas and so naturally I didn't go right home but stopped off at Marshall's where I snagged TWO dear little Demeters for seven clams each (Salt Air and Pink Lemonade) PLUS Lancome's Benghal (which I'd never heard of but loved the packaging - SNAP!! It's gorgeous nectarine and ginger and jasmine. Woo Hoo.) Long way around to the explanation that I'm collaging the Salt Air with my new obsession....

    (many thanx to Astaroth for the visual)
    ...for another breezy day!!

    Dreamt of my grandfather last night...I had invented some machine for floorcleaning and he was helping me look it over. Cool, because he was a very inventive man during his lifetime, I was happy to "see" him again!

    I'm thrilled about tonight, because the husband and I are having an 'impromptu' overnight in Chicago. Holiday dinner with a few collegues of his and then out on the town for a cocktail! This usually doesn't happen in my world, so it's REALLY exciting! In fact, I went out and bought a little black dress (well, actually a medium black dress!) to wear. My Chanel COCO should fit the bill perfectly! Ta ta for now!

    I'm in Ava Luxe's Madeline, a beautiful soft, milky, spicy gourmand that on my skin even manages to give a little hint of leather (no comments about my leathery skin, thank you! )

    We've had two days of snow here and it's now stunning - snow on all the trees and covering the ground, but a pearly white light and clear white skies. It's as if the world has suddenly been turned to black and white. I adore it.

    We have half a dozen visitors arriving from South Africa tomorrow for a week and a half (they are going to go nuts when they see this snow!), so I might not be able to post much for a while. But I'll try. In the meantime, lots of Christmassy love and great big hugs to all of you. I hope you all stay well and happy and keep having interesting dreams. And smelling fantastic of course.

    Serge Lutens - Serge Noir today.

    Incense and Cumin at the top. Cinnamon and vanilla (in an incensed room) at the base.

    I found it interesting that most of the big-name bloggers didn't catch the cumin note, but the folks at Makeup Alley and minor bloggers did. Wonder what THAT means?....

    Tonight - doing the same thing as ubuandibeme - impromptu holiday cocktails.....after HOCKEY!!!!

    So does a Capitals jersey count as "holiday dress"?

    I love reading everybody's posts here in the morning.

    Roberto, I love Pucci Vivara, and the bottle is great looking.

    Welcome, PinkPepperPlum!

    Yay, for Tigrushka for finishing her semester! I know what a good feeling that is. Although, I used to have a strange time decompressing. It felt odd not to be pressured and hard at work doing papers and research, homework, cramming for exams. What to do with oneself??!

    I'm trying another of my samples this morning, Psychotrope by Parfumerie Generale (thanks to Musse, and where is Musse anyway?).

    TGIF to everybody.

    Testing some stuff...

    Bvlgari Omnia (regular) - translucent, spicy thing that doesn't really move me like Crystalline.

    By Kilian Liaisons Dangereuses - Poison updated for the 21st century - me, I am not convinced anyone needed to do that. Some horrors are best not flankered.

    En Passant - to see if I want to swap for it. I don't - am getting shedfuls of lilac, even after scrubbing the toilet bowl with that hand.

    B by Boucheron - cheerful, upbeat, love it!
