Oh, N_Tesla....has there even been a day that wasn't a good one for Mitsouko? I think not.
I can't believe that I missed SMM's birthday!!!!!! Happy day to you, my friend! I'd buy a copy of "Perfume: SMM's Guide" in an instant! Love your thoughtful consideration and well-phrased reviews...thank you for sharing your thoughts with us every day!

Happy, happy birthday, SMM! May your poodles greet you with much joy, today and always!
SOTD today is Bill Blass Couture #6 Moroccan Rose A sweet, rose with a little bit of a spicy dry down.. Notes are apple blossom, black berries, rose sari, moroccan rose and patchouli.
This is a lovely scent but not widely known or available it seems.
Some things just get better as the years go on
like fine wine and SomervilleMetroMan!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! He is hot at 50!
I'm having one of those "I wish I had this or I wish I had that to wear" days so I'm starting out in nothing...

Happy Birthday to SMM!!!!!!
VM, I am sorry you are under the weather. Feel better soon.
HAPPY 5OTH BIRTHDAY SMM! WISHING YOU A FABULOUS DAY!
I smell awful. I have D&G's The One Rose or whatever it's called on my left arm and Christina Aguilera's Inspire Night on my right. The latter is overpowering everything -- it's all base, and utterly cheap smelling, at that. Just horrid.

This week, 'Chanel Cuir de Russie: Skin Scent' at http://thescentimentalist.blogspot.com/
Happy 50th Birthday Sommerville Metro Man!! What fun to have it on a Friday. You can celebrate all weekend long.
I was substitute teaching the 4th graders again today. I really love that age group. They're old enough to "get it", but still young enough to be sweet and to feel wonder.
I'm back home -- resting my feet and my vocal chords, wearing Rumeur by Lanvin.
Have a good evening, all.
Happy Birthday SMM!!!
Today I am wearing Profumo's Rose des Bois, generously sent by Ubu. This is a knock-your-socks-off fragrance which calls to mind another fragrance, Rosine Rose Kashmirie (I'm relying on memory here as I gave my sample of that away.)
Where I found Rose Kashmirie a bit sickening after a while (I think the saffron is what got to me as I also can't wear L'Artisan Safran Troublant), Rose des Bois is just warm and good.
Happy Birthday to SMM!
I'm headed out the door to my parents' house; received word this morning that my Uncle Frank died last night . He had a brain aneurysm (sp?) a while back and surgery, for whatever reason, wasn't an option, so he could have gone at any time. He and his wife came out to Oregon just last week, a surprise visit to catch up with family and friends (they live in Montana) and he stopped by my work to say hello. I wonder if he felt it coming.
Anyway, sotd is 22.
Wait...Sunnyfunny....do you like No22?
My sincere condolences to Sunnyfunny and her family (((Sunnyfunny))) - sometimes things like this really make you stop and just wonder...
An acquaintance of mine just lost her dad in a similarly sudden way. He went to the doctor on a semi-routine visit, found out he had stage 4 cancer, they gave him a couple of months and he passed away in a couple of days. It was such a shock.
Today is the first furlough day for the public school kids in my state. The first of seventeen. I am p*ssed. You'd think there would be another way...other than whacking 3-1/2 weeks from the school year.
SotD: Cruel Gardenia
Hope you all are looking forward to the weekend...
P.S. Happy Birthday SMM!

Let your No22 surround you and hug you, since your perfume friends cant do it in person. Know we are all thinking of you and sending you condolences for the loss of your uncle.
Condolences to Sunnyfunny on her and her family's loss.
Congratulations to SMM on reaching the half century mark with style and aplomb!
I am in Delices D'Epices - Les Belles d'Ricci today and I'm wondering why I have been neglecting this scent. Wow, I love this; warm, fruity and rich with spices.
Oh my goodness, dear Sunnyfunny, I missed your post. I'm so very sorry for your loss. How awful for all of you....I think this has been a difficult year in Oregon. I wish you all strength and peace during this trying time. I'm glad to know that your dear Uncle stopped by your work, that one last time. I'm sending you big hugs of No22 clouds.
Scent for work will be Feminite du Bois on one wrist and El Attarine on the other.
