    Default S o t D Wednesday 26 August

    Goodmorning!



    For a wonderful cool morning, coffee on the balcony and the still delicious cake from yesterday
    You see, Brielle? I am really listening to your advice!

    Have a peaceful Wednesday, all

    Default S o t D Wednesday 26th August

    Morning, all!

    Promising to be hot again today, so I went with Philosykos. Kitty wrinkled her nose.

    @VM: my mum was reminded of the hotel chain, too, but I hadn't really thought of it. I compromised by giving my mum permission to call her Isis rather than Ibis.
    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.

    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..."

    Today I'm in an interesting perfume: Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker.
    "Interesting? But it's so mass-market you can buy it anywhere for pennies!" I hear you cry. Well yes, that's one of the reasons I realised this morning that it's interesting. I keep my little 30ml bottle in the bathroom cabinet for quick and easy go-anywhere spritzing (I have one of those little pebble-shaped Ryobi bottles of Kenzo Flower in there for exactly the same reason). And nowadays, these are what I reach for when I want something easy easy and inoffensive for the school run (well, walk - I don't run if I can help it). It's easy easy easy stuff to wear, but it has that little whipcrack of sharpness to it that makes me think it's intelligent. OK, so this might be essentially NR for Her wearing horn-rimmed spectacles, but I think it's my generation's White Linen.

    White Linen is what our Mums wore, which might explain why it gets overlooked so often (along with Blue Grass). Really good scents that our Mums wore every day to take us to school or to go to work or to go to church, with a carefully-hoarded bottle of Chanel No. 5 for special occasions.

    OK, so I'm not likely to ever be so minimalist with my perfume wardrobe, but I kind of like the idea that this is what my daughter's memory of being walked to school will smell of.

    By the way, Small is now loving school. She says it's funky. Still speaks no German, but seems to be settling in. She now says "Gute Morge, Frau Lightsabre' and shakes her teacher's hand each morning. Very very cute. (That's not her teacher's real name, by the way. But it's what Big and I call her.)

    Yesterday the class celebrated Small's birthday (which was on Monday). All the kids came to collect her with a little wooden wagon she rode to school in. Thankfully we live 500 yards from the school, so the kids weren't exhausted. She took in 'Znuni' (second breakfast) of banana-chocolate muffins which we made the night before because she loves to cook. She brought home a ladybird glovepuppet *aaaarrrggghhh!!!!!* which I forgot to return this morning!!!!! Right - got to go find it and pick her up from school.

    Hope you all have lovely days and get to mentally ride in the little wooden wagon and cuddle the ladybird.

    PS been away for a bit because we had visitors and took Small to Disneyland Paris for the weekend for her birthday. Madness, but glorious.

    Frau Lightsabre....beautiful!

    As we head into the last days of August I realized I hadn't worn one of my favorite summer scents yet this summer.

    Annick Goutal Eau D'Hadrien

    I love to go out and eat at a nice restaurant, order the chef's tasting menu, be presented with multiple courses of amazing culinary concoctions and roll home sated and satisfied. The next day I am usually up for something much less complex. A nice piece of fish simply spiced on the grill and some fresh summer vegetables always seems right. As I eat the simpler meal I am always reminded that there are joys in simpicity. As it is with food so it is with perfume. I will wax poetically about a scent with overlapping accords that combine to create new artistic leaps of scent. Then there is the 1981 creation, by Annick Goutal and Francis Camail, Eau D'Hadrien. This is the olfactory version of simple, well-blended perfection. Eau D'Hadrien has six listed notes but there are only four that I smell when I wear it; lemon, grapefruit, citron, and cypress. The development is as straight-forward as can be. The top is tart lemon and grapefruit but the lemon is dominant. As the scent progresses the citron takes the lead toning down the tarter aspects of the beginning notes. The base is a clean, light cypress note. That's it, there is nothing else to report but that doesn't mean this isn't one of the best citrus scents out there. Eau D'Hadrien has above average longevity especially for this class of cologne. It also just feels comfortable. Like most colognoisseurs I am looking for the next great thing but along the way I'm going to stop and sniff the simple well-constructed things and remember there is pleasure to be found there.

    Have a Wicked Wednesday everyone.

    Good morning, folks.

    Rhiannon, I'm glad your celebration continues...;-)

    I'm feeling devastated with the loss of Teddy Kennedy, shortly after midnight.
    No one will ever uncover how much good he did- for the average Joe- including my late MIL, and my husband's family,among so many others.

    Even when hospitalized at MGH [ briefly], he was a consummate gentleman-

    I checked the new website, and couldn't see it even in oil form, which is concerning to someone who just discovered how lovely it is!

    Wordbird, you've hit the nail on the head! Lovely IS your generations' White Linen What an absolutely satisfying conclusion - I love it! It is a wonderful 'go to' or 'multi-purpose' frag, a 'wardrobe staple' even.

    When I was a new basenoter, our dear Quarry used to wear this little number called Mira Bai, put out by Chopard. I had never tried it, until yesterday. A light and clever floral/gourmand with a woody base. Needless to say, I left the shop (Perfume World, a mall store which happens to carry some higher end bottles - even a couple from Amouage! I'd say authentic as well, of course I sampled them ) with a bottle of my very own! It was also on sale - which made it irresistible - so for $23.00 clams it was neatly tucked into my bag. It's my SOTD. Have a great one folks!

    Good morning everyone from my small slice of the world ! Havea great day.

    Wordbird- many happy returns for Small's birthday !! Disneyland Paris is wonderful but I haven't been for years ( and it rained a lot when I did go ! ) . I laughed reading that you call Small's teacher Frau Lightsabre ! So... I am not the only one with nicknames for teachers ! I love reading your posts.
