Happy birthday, Kewart and TheAttorney! Here's some champers to go with Asha's fabulous looking cakes:
Joining the Guerlain group in the divine Cuir Beluga.
Have a great day, everyone!

Happy Birthday to kewart and TheAttorney!!
I´m wearing Baghari (Robert Piguet) today. I feel ready for fall, wearing this aldehydic but warm scent.
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Happy Birthday Kewart and The Attorney!!!
The Guide is such a fun book. I keep it close to me all the time (except when I'm at work)
I am not sure what to wear yet, but I think it will be Guerlain Paris - Moscow..
Very Happy Birthdays to Both Kewart and The Attorney. Have great days today and fab years too !
Morning everyone ! This early morning ,it's Annick Goutal Gardenia Passion from a sample.

Iris Ganache (Guerlain)
Wearing Obsession to warm me up on a cool, rainy day.
Eau de Patou by Jean Patou (from a sample - thanks Zachary)
Nice stuff. It has a dusty, green quality to the top notes (I'm thinking oakmoss) that gives a golden burnish to the citrus. I am really impressed. It reminds me a bit of the top notes of Sous le Vent by Guerlain. Now I have to find out how to get a bottle of this stuff, it doesn't seem easy to find.

Still more birthday wishes to Kewart and TheAttorney.
I am wearing Ambre Russe. If I believed in HGs, Ambre Russe would be my HG. But there are just so many other loves, too many fragrances, too little time.
I'm on a leather crave today, but not just any leather. No, I want skanky leather ... I reached for Paco Rabanne La Nuit.
Sending birthday wishes to kewart and TheAttorney
I've trademarked the color bleu
Happy birthday, Kewart! I hope you enjoy this day to the full.
I'm in Safran Troublant today.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KEWART!
For the 3rd day in a row, I'm wearing Jo Malone's Vanilla & Anise, which I bought "unsniffed." It turned out to be exactly what I wanted. It's strong on the anise upon application (nicely boozy, to me) but it warms to a perfect, dry vanilla. For me it's long-lasting and blends beautifully with several others in my growing stash of Malones!
I received a sample of Pomegranate Noir, which, for some mysterious reason hadn't gabbed me when it first came out. Now I absolutely adore it, and must purchase a FB soon. Hope everyone is looking forward to cozy Fall scents.
Happy Birthday, Kewart!
I'm trying Ormonde Jayne Tolu for the first time. It's a gorgeous, shimmering amber, with a bit of powder and a touch of herbs. Listed notes include juniper berry, orange blossom, clary sage, orchid, Moroccan rose, muguet, tolu, tonka bean, golden frankincense, amber. All in all, a perfect choice for an Indian summer/early fall day!
Special hug going out to ineespenes.
My experiments with layering Parisienne continue. Today I have it with a discontinued Avon Orange Blossom body spray. It's rather interesting, as this spray has a citrus note, but of course the body spray is wearing off much faster than the EdP. Maybe the next time I'll try layering with something more long-lasting and more frankly citrus. Maybe Eau de Hadrien.
And a Happy Birthday to Kewart!

Happy birthday, kewart!
And YES, Coneheads! Ah, nostalgia. Luvved it when it came out. In my defense, I was 10 or thereabouts.
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, Kewart!
I'm not wearing fragrance today. I've been down for the count with a stomach virus/flu, they don't know what - could be migraine related. I got a shot at the Dr.'s for nausea and that knocked me out. I'm beginning to come to life again now.
Hope everyone else is well!

Happy, happy, happy birthday to you, Kewart. Enjoy every second of it.
Oh Lilybelle, get well soon. Stay safe and rest up.
People are smelling fantastic today. Interesting to see the trends changing as the weather is changing.
Primrose: Black Orchid's been on my radar lately. It's so wonderful in the colder weather.
Musse: Baghari is one that's been on my DH's radar lately (for me though). He thinks it's very sexy. (boom-chik-a-wa-wa)
VM: smelling fab, as always. Glad you're enjoying the Beachy. Africanimal is woodsy-honey on me as well.....like a less salty and more perfumey Miel de Bois (hope I didn't make anyone gasp in horror!)
I want to extend a massive thanks for all the lovely messages yesterday. You are so kind for caring and it is so appreciated :-)
Scent of the morning was my usual go-to-the-gym-frag: SummerbyKenzo
Scent of the evening: testing Lily & Spice----thanks, VM!!

Lilybelle...SNOOKUMS...hope they've got you figured out. Been a rough couple-a days here....
Swanned about today in the amazing Chant de Coeur - thanks to LeeSee.
Up at the CRACK tomorrow ayem to go with my Vietnamese AA friend who's being sworn in as an American citizen after a 12 year wait. When he first applied he was turned down - when he re-applied - nine years later he was again turned down but asked why he waited so long between applications. He told them he wanted to have sufficient sobriety before asking to be a citizen. On that basis he was accepted.

Earlier I decided to finally test out the vintage bottle of Chanel No 19 that I recently purchased. Maybe it's gone off? Because I found it totally and horribly repulsive. I diligently kept my nose away from my arm and checked it at 30 minutes - horrifying. Checked it again at an hour - terrifying. Checked it again at 2 hours - it was like a Rob Zombie film. So I scrubbed and wept a little inside I really wanted to like it.
And then I promptly doused myself in a good helping of Love's True Bluish Light to erase the catatonia-inducing memory of No 19 and thanked the universe for mysticknot.

Happy Birthday to kewart and to TheAttorney! Hope you're having a wonderful time!
Spent the day in Yves Saint Laurent Y.
Will spend the evening in Prada L'eau Ambree, from a sample.
Happy Birthday Kewart and TheAttorney! I must have known it was going to be your birthday today...that's why I smelled like cake. No wait...I wore Vanille Gourmande by Laura Mercier...I won it from Neimans last week. Don't like to smell like food very often but today it was nice...free stuff always smells a little better
