    Morning peeps! Very tired today after a long day at work yesterday followed by a long and boring evening at college.

    A very pleasant day for everyone

    FLORIS'

    Top notes
    bergamot, coriander, green, herbal, lemon, lime, mandarin
    Middle notes
    cypress, jasmine, petitgrain
    Base notes
    amber, cedarwood, mossy, musk
    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..."

    Safran Troublant. Love the name, love the smell. Fits the cold but sunny outside world perfectly. Still never ceases to amaze me that it has roses - AND I like it! Me, the rose-hater.
    Fleurry, thanks for your impressions! Sounds yum.
    Baldufita, hope you're recovering ok.
    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.

    I got up at 3:00 a.m. this morning to watch the Leonids meteor shower (yes, I'm a nutso geek). I stayed outside for about half an hour, but it was too cloudy in the right section of the sky to see anything. Phooey.

    Sending speedy recovery thoughts to Baldufita!

    Chaya…mysterious one!

    I’m wearing YSL Parisienne edt this morning. Thanks very much again to 30 Roses. It didn’t work for her, but I am loving it. It seems I always love "meh" fragrances that bore other people to tears.

    I hope everyone has a good day.

    Hi, gang!

    Inspired by Haunani and the "No repeat November" team, I am wearing the beautiful L'Eau d'Italie Sienne l'Hiver.

    Sienne l’Hiver Notes: Violet leaf, geranium, black olive, white truffle, smoke, woods, coal roasted chestnuts, Autumn leaves, French straw, iris root, and white musk.

    Transcendent Tuesday to all!
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    Good morning all.It was hard to get up this morning....The sun has gone behind the horizon now and we won't get much actual daylight for a couple of months now... It's kind of nice with the bluish light you get this time of year...but you end up nevere really waking up properly.Feel a bit like a zombie today! speedy recovery wishes to Dimitri and Mira!

    Chaya, dear, oh do say more! Tolu on you is mystery enough.

    I am wearing LTBL, such a comforting, embracing fragrance. I have a wonderful husband, great children, a sweetheart of a dog, a terrific job, and a fabulous fragrance collection. All that is comfort against some harsh financial news. I already have what really matters.

    Chanel Bel Respiro today....In my long list oif Galbanumy greens, I'd say that this one is very similar to No19 and VentVert (2nd), but with the floral notes replaced by lemons. Bright and fresh, but not too sharp to my nose. On the downside, I applied about 90 minutes ago, and it's already almost gone. I'll put it with my beloved Eau de Guerlain in the land of "enjoy the freshness before it's gone...Too late!"

    Good morning! Hoping everyone with incisions, punctures, and varietal bruising is healing well.

    I've got Escale a Pondechery on one wrist (thank you lovely Potiron): reminds me a lot of TDC Bergamote, only with a heavier dallop of lemon syrup

    And, Annayake Miyako on the other wrist (double thanks to my new Swiss pal, Potiron): opens sooooooo much like cracking open an A&W, then incensey woods come through....it's mystical, really
