    Another hot day predicted here, too! SOTD is Hong Kong Garden again; I'm too sleepy to paw through my bottles and samples for a new choice. Take care, all!

    It's really cold out, but wearing cashmere to help warm me and Liz Claiborne Vivid is a perfect match.

    Jasmine de Nuit by The Different Company (from a sample - thanks jr4dt)



    I think this is a chypre...atleast it really smells like one. And I'm loving it. I don't think I've ever smelled a chypre done by JC Ellena. Plus the cinnamon in the dry down is, for obvious reasons, really impressing me. One big yum.

    Bigarade Concentree. Showering was delayed until afternoon. Still troubleshooting our TV. Today I learned about thermal grease on driver chips. Who knew circuitry needed fluids?

    Hugs to those with healing teeth, they can be a pain in you know where.

    I am not in the best physical shape these days either: the antique quilt I volunteered to restore is finished, I had to do a lot of piecing and bordering as well as simple mending where it was possible. Took me two weeks. And -- would not you know it?-- my carpal tunnel kicked in -- with swelling, numbing and difficulties doing anything at all -- not just stitching -- with the right hand. My DH -- not "dear' here -- said: "Do not volunteer!" hahaha

    YSL M7 for the evening, comforting warm woods.

    Ouch, going to the dentist s*cks...you poor things!

    (I had an appointment with my sadistic Danish dentist a couple of weeks ago, but chickened out, and called him and said I was going on vacation, and that I would contact him when I came back. He gave me a weird look when I met him at the grocery store a few days later...)

    Ooops, almost forgot - SotD/SotN are Anné Pliska/Gaultier2.

    Aww, Twolf, your poor wrists. What a fun, fulfilling project, though, I bet the quilt is gorgeous.

    Hugs to mysticknot, your poor toothies!

    I smell many tasty things in here today, Bal a Versailles, Hypnotic Poison, Chanel No. 22...mmm! I've been smelling lots o' 22 in here lately, and I'm ever so patiently awaiting my fb's arrival in the mail.

    I just love my midweek day off! I got in a good workout, then I went to the farmers' market and bought some heirloom tomatoes for dinner, and ate an asparagus salad with rosemary flatbread for lunch.
    And I'm wearing Tabac Blond.

    Wow. I definitely did not give Carnal Flower enough of a chance on my first go-round. (I think it was at bedtime) I am just blown away by this drydown! Gorgeous, and lives up to the "carnal!"

    Darn it. Why can't I ever fall in love with something CHEAP?!?!?!

    Hi all!

    I still remember getting my wisdom teeth out - all four at once and it knocked me out for days...

    Today's SOTD has been a test of Armani Acqua Di Gio.



    I haven't worn or smelled this in years, so it's interesting to test this again. Given the its horrible reputation here and the fragrance atrocities it is blamed with enabling, I was expecting a horrifying combination of cheap bergamot and calone, but it's not that at all.

    It's herbal. Pleasantly so. With salt. I could almost consider this a salty garrigue (the smell of herbs wafting on a breeze). Trying hard, I can sort of see how the salt + dry basil + rosemary could sort of simulate watermelon (sort of...), but that's kind of reaching, at least on me. I don't care much for salty frags, so I don't think I need a bottle, but there are MUCH worse scents out there that actually deserve some of the spitefulness thrown at AdG way more than this does.

    Good evening all

    Mystic, hope you will feel all well soon.

    Last evening's Nirmala was still pretty strong when i arose today, so i decided to enjoy its lingering scent; talk about tenacity.

    When it wore down, a good 14 hours after application, i put on some SMN Muschio, which smells delightful.

    Tonight i put on some Un Jour de Charles Jourdan, which is as sweet and yummy as floral candy.

    My tummy has been growling since dinner, i think Chaya's wish for all is coming to fruition; a pig flying out of my 'tuchus', but it could just be a rumbly tumbly.

    Have a great night all, love and hugs
