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..."

It's cloudy and rainy today... a perfect day to go shopping. I'm wearing Hermes Vetiver Tonka from a generous sample from a bnoter (thanks WL!). This is so much better on my skin than I'd expected it to be. I may just have to get a Disney pass and become friendly with EPCOT this year.

Happy Birthday to Fragrant Zebra and irish belated or not depending on how accurate the birthday reminder is.
Today is a rainy, dreary day at Stately Somerville Manor. The Sunday paper has been digested, Wild Poodles are round pools of poodle on the floor and I am going to introduce myself to the DS & Durga samples, New England Pine, Cowboy Grass, Barbados, and Marblehead Reds; I have and dab a little on different parts of my body and see how they develop as I catch up on a few weeks of "Ugly Betty" on the DVR.
Have a Sumptuous Sunday everyone.

I finally have a full bottle of Kenzo Power, and it's even more glorious in a full wearing than my sampling was. Truly something that melds perfectly with my skin chemistry to make something completely glorious.
