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

    Thanks guys for the birthday wishes and cake! And many happy returns to Taolady and KiatBkk..

    It is 28th though today - we don't want to tread retrospectively on the festive toes of BlackCat and Whispering Leaves!

    Quick off the mark just after midnight, the BN age-o-meter stuck a nought on my age (eek!), and Aus Liebe zum Duft sent me an e-greetings card with a 10 euro discount voucher - and there I was trying to resist buying any more FBs...

    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.

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."

    Happy Birthday to the Birthday Trio; Taolady, VM I Hate Civet & KiatBkk!! I hope you all have a well-scented day.

    It seems winter wanted to take one last bow before exiting stage left as it is downright cold at Stately Somerville Manor this morning. Therefore I need to grab some roses.

    Czech & Speake #88

    Are there floral scents that are masculine? There are certainly men who can wear floral scents but is there a floral scent out there that any man can wear? There are probably many but I would gues that at the top of many colognoisseur's list would be the 1981 creation of John Stephen, Czech & Speake #88. What is remarkable about Czech & Speake #88 is that out of seven listed notes only three are non-floral and to my nose I don't really smell two of them. This is a highly skilled composition which mix a number of floral notes in a very muscular style. The top comes across first with geranium, there is supposed to be bergamot here but I never get any hint of that. In many ways geranium comes off as a lighter rose and that leads perfectly into the heart as rose does take over. This gives the effect of a slowly ripening rose accord as you move from top to heart. Just as the rose begins to recede in comes a mix of cassie and frangipani to keep things on the deeper side. The scent finishes off with a huge slug of sanadalwood and the mix of the rose and sandalwood is marvelous. This last part of the scent, the mix of rose and sandalwood, lasts for a very long time and it is what you take away from a day of wearing this scent. So go ahead guys while you might not put a flower in your hair, spraying some Czech & Speake on your skin is not so scary.

    Have a Trippy Thursday everyone.

    Today - FINALLY trying Ormonde Jayne's Ormonde Woman. I see why this gets a lot of love here. Absolutely stunning leafy foresty goodness.

    Last night - the SO brought home a refill of his Fahrenheit and a new cologne - Hugo by Hugo Boss.

    Of course, I had to try it. Aquatic at the top drying down to a long lasting, slightly powdery citrus.

    He told me he liked it because it smelled "clean." Definitely that. It actually reminded me of old school Clarol Herbal Essence (though I admit that I have not smelled Herbal Essence in a very long time).

    I suspect this will become his "golf scent." He finds it inoffensive. Lots of similarities to Davidoff Cool Water in this one.

    He was a bit concerned when I sprayed it on myself.
    "You aren't planning on wearing this yourself, are you?"
    "No dear, not my taste. Besides, this will smell better on you."

    I still prefer him in the Farenheit.
    May have him try Green Irish Tweed later this week if he is looking for new cologne.

    Happy birthdays! Excellent cakes - now aching to bake myself one. A big one. No sharing.

    Today's is 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.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY VMIhatecivet!!!
    (you too KiatBkk, if you wander over here!)

    And many many thanks for the wishes and the PMs and the GROOVY Tai Chi Avatars. (Lady Dragon, with your permish I'm gonna swipe yours at some future date. And I repeat...WHERE do you find those always-perfect cakes??!!)

    Dimi, I turned my monitor upside down to cipher what you are wearing. Now it doesn't work and I STILL don't know!!

    Roberto - X-CELLENT birthday wish (and like UBU says - great advice!)

    SdeL - that cake is truly disturbing!

    Hebe - did I say? So GOOD to see you back...sorry Zestini doesn't work for you. I use it to perk up other citruses. The joys and mysteries of body chemistry!

    Wolfie gave me the idea and I'm gonna spend THE BIG EIGHT-OH in figgies!!

    Starting with...

    ...grace a the same Wolfie...

    ....and see where it goes from there!!
