    AL Madonna Lily on the first gloomy day of the week.
    I barely smell myself as I have a severe case f the sniffles, but it's quite lovely.
    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.

    Good morning!
    I'm still starry-eyed from a full day at "Scent of Excellence", the first niche perfumery exhibition I attended....from the lovely Vero Kern with all her passion for her extraordinary perfumes, to Monsieur Montale who's a hyper-active guy, to Pierre Guillaume nuzzling my neck and inhaling one of his extinct scents (it was Marilyn&John), to an interesting chat with Mark Buxton, to talking to Mona di Orio over the phone and getting her new scent, Chamarré, explained (tigs and Dragon, look out for this one, it's a gorgeous lavender based scent-and this comes from a lavender hater!). And...surprise!.....meeting our own darling Mrs Grant, Danielle
    What an unforgettable experience!

    For Sniff'n'Speak floral day I'm wearing Narcissus Poeticus from the Opulentals range by Annette Neuffer (BN's jazztweety). See S'n'S thread for more details.

    I am so happy for you my dear LIB that your day was truly wonderful. Now we are both starry-eyed

    I wish it had been meeting me in Paris and then going to your "Scent of Excellence", although the thought of Pierre Guillaume nuzzling *my* neck....

    We will have a lot to discuss!

    One gloomy day before spring will be back again in all its beauty, so I can safely wear

    Belated Happy Birthday wishes to Nukapai. I hope you had a joyful and happy day. And maybe you are still celebrating the entire weekend?

    LIB - oh wow, sounds wonderful!

    I'm in TDC Charmes et Feuilles today for S&S. I wrote out my full impressions in that thread. (The other one I tested, new scent from Annick Goutal, turned out to be a hideous scrubber).

    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..."

    Czech & Speake Frankincense & Myrrh as SotD, from a sample. Gentle lavender/citrus opening that slowly blooms into an incense dominated close to the skin beauty.

    Since it is FLORAL'S day, for me it's:

    Richard James Savile Row by Richard James

    One of my best men's florals. Bright, white - puts a little spring in my step every time I wear it. Looks like I need it, on this cloudy, overcast Saturday morning.

    LIB, this is something to be very starry-eyed for! Who is writing the report? Where did the whole event take place? Where can we read more about it? What did you wear and what did you eat?

    Happy belated birthday to Nukapai and I am totally for the idea of making it a birthday weekend. Treat yourself gently and surround yourself in beautiful scents. Oh yeah, and enjoy your new L'Artisan (I gave more than 1/2 of a 100ml bottle away to a BN person who never even thought of leaving feedback ).

    As planned, starting this cloudy April day in a Mayflower -- lily of the valley. Surprising how many of us can't stand this note in a fragrance, just check the newly resurrected "Notes we hate" thread. On the other hand, I am glad that Ms.R wears her Diorissimo perfume once in a blue moon (or is it Diorissimo's sweet sueded base she enjoys most?).

    Coty Muguet de Bois, vintage, originally created by Henri Robert (Cristalle, #19) but reformulated many times ever since. Mine is somewhat old and lacks the oil rectification plant aftertaste of the very modern Coty. More on the dedicated thread.

    After last night's 4 lilies of the valley, I will wear three more today.

    Lady in Black that sounds like an amazing time can you tell us more, please.

    For SnS Saturday it was easy to choose my spring bloom. Stately Somerville Manor has lilacs all around it and nothing means spring more to me than lilacs so for Floral SnS I'm in:

    Frederic Malle En Passant

    My review is in the SnS thread.

    Have a Sybaritic Saturday everyone.

    I was going to go with En Passant (you smell terrific, Somerville MM), but then my dogs trotted after two white butterflies on their morning walk, and the jasmine was blooming in the back yard, so I was inspired to put La Chasse aux papillons on my left arm and La Chasse aux Papillons extreme on the right.

    I've left more comments about this on the Floral SnS thread.

    Am I late in celebrating the birth of Nukapai? Clearly, the festivities should be drawn out anyway. Happiest of days, Pia.
    Here's a toast to a lovely soul. The strawberry remind us you're a pretty redhead, and the outdoor setting reminds me of one of the first gardening scene photos you posted here at BN.

    I'm awash in violets (4 different frags). Will post more in Sniff 'n' Speak thread.

    Happy (Belated) Birthday, Nukapai!

    Congratulations on your L'Artisan acquisition--you've been wanting it so. Good on DH.

    LIB--what a wonderful experience. Yes, details.

    For SnS, prior to exercising/showering, I'm donning Parfums de Nicolai's Sacrebleu and Odalisque. I think, though, that Sacrebleu could be classified as an oriental (?) but I'm not too adept at classifying scents yet.

    I'm planning on wielding the big guns post-shower: Carnal Flower.

    Have a lovely day!

    Happy birthday Nukapai.

    I wore Houbigant's Quelques Fleurs last night to bed. It was so wonderful when I put it on. But then I fell asleep. This morning it was still pretty strong but a little "dirty". I am so sory I missed what happened in between.
    Now I am trying Mahora, which when I put it on I thought was Nahema.
