    Still on holiday; aaah! Also in the good news department, we have accepted an offer on our flat and could be moving within the month if everything goes well (though the thought of moving house fills me with dread as well... ).

    I've had two days of fancying practically every perfume I own - bit unusual because I'm mostly drawn very specifically to scents and put off by others - so feeling spoilt for choice and finding it hard to decide! In the end I went for MH Citron Citron yesterday, but today I'm going for the gorgeous Neil Morris parfum d'Odette. I feel like I've broken out the good china.

    Smelling good, Roberto! Does it count if you're scent twins on consecutive days?

    Today's is Spezie di Medici - the lovely golden glow of orange pomanders to go with the fiery leaves outside.
    Good luck on moving, Nuka!
    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.

    SNOW? ACK! Completely NOT READY to start the winter groove...

    At any rate, I'm thrilled to bits about Brielle's new digs - congrats! AND to hear of Nuk's realestate deal - best to you and DH on the transacting!

    Yesterdays' wearing of Josef Statkus yielded 2 (yes, TWO!) compliments...both from women (which always feels more 'sincere' somehow)...maybe a decant isn't enough, hmmmm, I may have to reconsider emptying my wallet for that treasure.

    Today it's new brakes for my vehicle. I'll be bringing a good book and a cloud of Coco, Chanel into the waiting room!

    Sunnyfunny thank you for the concern but while it was a bad week it wasn't anything really serious in the scheme of things. Everything important to me is doing fine. It's just when a lot of little, and medium-sized, annoyances all decide to pile up in one five-day period it makes you want to have a lost weekend, and I did.

    Monday was defiitely an improvement from a week ago lets see if Tuesday can keep the trend going.

    Today I broke out my tiny vial of something special.

    Kenzo Unidendified Fragrance Object (UFO)

    I am a fan of Kenzo as a House, overall. I am especially a fan when they give perfumers some leeway to be creative as they did Dominique Ropion in Jungle L'Elephant. I was very excited to hear that they had asked Aurelien Guichard to create a 2009 limited edition Unidentified Fragrance Object ( Parfum Objet Non Identifie ). M. Guichard stated he was designing this scent around a heart which contained a "marble accord". Marble as in the material used by sculptors and this had me really looking forward to a mineral-laden scent and M. Guichard does not disappoint. The top of UFO is reminiscent of M. Guichard's Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Silver Factory as UFO also starts with a metallic note. In this case it feels like the metal of the chisel before it starts to bite into the marble. There is a note of orange blossom to keep the metallic accord from getting too strong. The heart is the promised "marble accord" and it has a cool stone quality to it but it also has a curious kind of wamth as well as it turns deeper and more minerally in character. It is like the sun is warming the stone as it is being worked upon. all throughout the development of this stony aspect a sheer frankincense is in place as it seems this artist works with a cone of incense burning in their studio. UFO really stays in place as a mix of incense and marble for a very long time finally allowing a base of vanilla to join them in the end. UFO has above average longevity and is very close wearing with little sillage. Aurelien Guichard is becoming one of those perfumers who is working in extremely interesting directions, for me, and if he keeps working with the same kind of artistry he shows in UFO he won't be "unidentified" for too much longer.

    Have a Terrific Tuesday everyone.

    This morning brings with it an errand-running list about a mile long, so I went with the refreshing Creed Virgin Island Water.

    I love it when you read the description for a scent, think "Not gonna like it", and then end up really enjoying it! Reminds me to never stop trying new scents

    We went to Bern yesterday to get hubby's Dutch passport renewed and find out if Small and I are eligible for dual nationality. The lady in the Consulate was really nice and very helpful. We have to get Small's birth certificates etc certified by something called an Apostille, which I've never heard of before. I expect we'll have a few phonecalls/emails to try to find out what this is and who in Wales or London does it. However, she's eligible for Dual nationality, which is lovely. It's something to share with her Daddy and I don't know, I just think it gives her more flexibility in life. Choice is a wonderful thing to have.

    I would have to learn to speak and write Dutch before I would be able to apply, and since I'm currently struggling to learn German, I'm going to leave it a while. It's a project to put on the back burner for a few years. I have no real need for a Dutch passport, apart from rather liking the idea of our family being able to travel together under a single name. (I've kept my British passport in my maiden name, partly from laziness, partly because that's the name I use for work and partly... to keep a little piece of my own identity. Silly, perhaps, but my little bit of independence.)

    Today I am wearing a perfume I never thought I would own, let alone in extrait (which this is): Mitsouko. Like Quarry, I have finally 'got it' and today the tiny bottle of extrait I won on ebay for silly money (under 20 quid for 8mls!) arrived. I like it. I even have moments when I think it is very beautiful. And the drydown is getting better and better as it develops. Happy me.

    I hope there are plenty of happy yous out there today. Hoorah for the housemovers - I will keep my fingers crossed for you Nukapai. And a scattering of cushions to you Brielle! To you, Roberto, I'll add my hug to the pile of others on this thread.
    And for all the other readers of this thread, if you're having a rubbish day: chin up. Wipe your eyes and come round here for a hug and a cuppa.

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."

    I got a delightful care package yesterday (why is my mail now being delivered at 6pm? It used to come at about 10am. I'm most disgruntled.)

    I'm giving Bandit a whirl today. At first, I was disappointed -- I was told this would be a BAD GIRL LEATHER! All I got was powder and, maybe violets? There was some leather in there, I guess.....

    But, then the drydown set in, and the Bandit got progressively naughtier. There is something almost sour in the late middle that I'm not sure I quite "get," but now I smell good and BAD. Excellent.

    It occurs to me that Bandit is therefore the perfect perfume for sneaking out for a night of debauchery. "Just going to Bible Study, Mom" says the Toppy powder. "Read these verses!" says the more leathery drydown.......

    Interesting!



    PS: Wordbird: The extrait of Mitsouko is such a wonderful thing. I think that many people who find the EdT to be "OK, but...welll....I'm not sure" would find a more glorious experience with the full strength parfum. It's so smooth and silky.....
