    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..."

    Hugs and soup to all who mourn, ache, or ail ...

    Hope our lovebirds had a grand time !

    I'm in an old favorite that becomes scarcer all the time- Rykiel Women edp.
    This subtly incensey, date and violet pashmina of a scent is elegant, soothing, singular, yet discreet-
    Suitable for crowded settings- and I'm off to one right NOW ;-)

    May your Monday be a kind one, friends.

    An_Oud_Girl, my condolences to you and your husband. It is good to have you back with us.

    Thanks to the wonderful Twolf, I am testing Terre d'Hermès today and loving it. It is a magical combo of sheer, clean (but amazingly, not sharp) notes and warmer, earthier ones, beautifully balanced. As it is a Jean-Claude Ellena creation, it's no wonder I am enjoying it so. I love so many of his fragrances.

    Notes: orange, grapefruit, flint, pepper, bay rose, geranium, patchouli, benzoin, vetiver, Atlas cedar

    Wishing you all a great start to your week!

    Positive energy flowing to the Left Coast to Oudie and hub...and to those ailing, stressing and mired in negativity..

    Starting out today in the pretty lemon-peachy Promesse de l'Aube (aka MDCI's FK1)...a sort of stripped down Chinatown. Gonna see how she behaves in this changeable weather (started out in the low fifties - going to the high seventies.)

    Encens et Bubblegum by Etat Libre d'Orange. Cheery, but meh.

    Happy Monday.

    ===============

    Adding: I like this much better after it spent some time on my skin. At first it was like bubblegum over a straw mat, a bit strange. It came together with some time, though, and I like it now.

    Continued hugs and love for our basenoters who need a little extra lift today.

    I'm in Chanel Beige this morning, and I really don't think it's for me. I won a lot of the 4.5ml Chanel minis, and I'm disappointed that I'm not fond of the two exclusifs of the bunch. I think I may need to bite the bullet and break our my camera today to get a bit more active on the sales/swaps section, LOL.

    {{{{{{{{Gary}}}}}}}} because I've been thinking about him. And to Oud_girl & her family lots of {{{{{{{hugs}}}}} too. I know they are "virtual" but they are sincerely meant.

    I have a dentist appointment today, then a dr's appointment. I think I have the beginning of an ear infection & want to catch it quickly. Then I'm taking the girl back to the doctor for a problem that developed over the weekend. We're just not doing so "hot" around here today.

    So, I am going to wear something "light" to the dentist. Monty Taylor's Ambra di Venezia is perfect for today; body cream & edp.

    I'm so sorry to hear that, Baldufita - I sure hope your day gets better! You know you can count on everyone hear to lend and ear, and send positive and loving energy your way. You're in the best community I know when what you need is support and comfort.

    I'm in vintage Vivre parfum (by Molyneux) this morning. I wore this ultra-chypre to an outside event on a very warm day this summer and I thought I had ruined it for me forever. It was so heavy and oppressive, and even a bit sour - I was so afraid people could smell me but were being too polite to say anything. Well, something compelled me to give it another chance, and I'm glad I did. Now it's behaving the way I knew it could - green and mossy, sophisticated and warm, and somehow unique even among all the chypres that were released in the 70s and 80s.

    Happy Monday everyone - make it the start of a fabulous week!

    Thanks Evangeline... It's just that life can be too much for me... And right now, it is...

    I've been struggling with depression and borderline for ever, and I have days where I wish I could put and end to all of it. Today is just one of those days, but if I'm brave enough and if I "let the train pass" without trying to stop it, I know it will pass and I will have nice days again...

    Had 3 days off, and back to the grind this morning. Bois des Iles fit the bill for me today.

    Later, will probably spritz on Bendelirious.
