Guerlin – Samsara (parfum)
Gucci by Gucci ...again !
Have a fab day everyone !
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
December has arrived and we have our first real frost
of the season. I am reaching for my cosy, warming
Heliotrope Blanc. Enjoy your day everyone and don't
forget to wrap up warm!!
Chilly over here, too, though no frost.
Sampling Mona di Orio's charity scent Jabu. It's nice! Probably the most universally likeable entry in her entire line. Those of us who are scared off by the generous helping of civet & other animalics in her scents could well like this one: it's positively clean by her standards. Creamy tuberose & orange blossom with a zesty, vaguely minty opening. More coherent impressions later on.
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.
Morning all! It's very chilly here and it's the first day this winter that I've had to de-ice the car (boooooooo). Wearing Black Orchid today.

Vintage Chantilly. Have a nice day!
There are SO many here who could use a big hug...
RHM, Soirdelune, so many more.
Those heartsick, ailing.
Sending you loving- but not smothering- warmth, from my heart to yours.
Aimez-Moi last night; I needed to feel our tdem nearby ;-)
If I'm writing spottily- I just am not well, haven't been, don't know when I will be.
NOT life-threatening ;-)
VERY EXCITED about a visit w/ debborra!
She will spend the w/e chez Meister, in order to attend the Neil Morris event next week.
Such a lovely lady ....
DH and I are thrilled.
It will be SO lovely to have her intimately in our quiet kitchen, far from the deafening whirlwind that is Sniffapalooza ;-)
AND she gets to see SMM, Com Diva, Pomander [ I hope !], etc.
I PRAY that it will be POTL's Luctor et Emergo, or Amouage Tribute...SIGH.
But , more likely- Cartier's Treizieme Heure.
Big hugs, you scented seraphim.
My SOTD is Czech & Speake No. 88.
Top Notes: Bergamot, Geranium
Middle Notes: Rose Otto, Cassie, Frangipani
Base Notes: Vetiver, Sandalwood

Montale Chocolate Greedy for me today.
Good morning all It''s been snowing a lot during the night here too. Felt like wearing something spicy,so I'm in Chergui today. Hugs to all that needs one!
Coromandel by Chanel for me today.
Annick Goutal Ambre Fetiche from a Ubuandibeme sample
we have seen the enemy...and he is us.-Pogo
Mmmmm kbe, you smell good! I love the way a 'dry' scent smells on a man. Amber Fetiche's incense and amber pairing works well creating a drier, yet still ambery flair! (For myself, I hold a general preference to the sweet.)
I'm joining Chaya in a "group hug" for RHM, Soirdelune, and others finding themselves in need of a squeeze! How lucky is debborrra?!?!?!
Feeling lucky myself today...my father-in-law's (who passed away in Aug.) girlfriend Mary is coming over to visit & have lunch. The last time I went out with her I bought some Mira Bai, so that's what I'l be wearing!

Feeling winter in the air this morning. Warming up with New York.. G'day to all!
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
The ground was glittering this morning, and lots of fog as I drove my mother to the airport, but we didn't quite hit the freezing mark here. Still...the colder weather has me thinking of holiday treats, and since I felt like a sweetie I decided to polish off a sample of Serge Lutens' Un Bois Vanille that someone sent me a while back. This one is so smoky that I don't know whether I can tolerate it. It smells like a vanilla candle that's been snuffed out. Maybe it will settle down soon.
Chaya, thanks for the ((hug)) and warmth, and a big warm ((hug)) right back at you. I hope you feel better soon. Sending healthy wishes and prayers your way. Joining in the group hug with everybody else who needs one today.
Wishing everybody a healthy & happy day!
(((((Chaya))))) Feel better, honey. Thrilling to know you joined me in Aimez-Moi last night. Dag, we smelled fine. OOOH! It's lovely that you and Debbborra will get together. She's such a doll. How lucky for you both!
Getting in on the group hug. The line forms to the left, for whover wants one. (((((BN)))))
i Profumi di Firenze Ambra del Nepal *yum*
Notes: amber, cardamom, vanilla
Take care, everyone!

Wearing the deep and lovely Maitresse today.
Back from four days in pink and pretty BERMUDA and wistfully wearing one of their homegrown scents....
...by Lili Bermuda. The notes include muguet, Bermuda Oleander, white orris, pink water lily and hibiscus over "silkmusk" and vanilla flower. It is quite musky sweet and very reminiscent of oleander.
SO good to be back home with all y'all!

Must speak with Zeus about lifting these ills and aches. The Fair Ladies of Basenotes should not suffer so. At minimum, Hermes should fly to you with compensatory gifts (of the 50ml sort).
On a far less lofty note … Seriously—the house is in ruins of dust and furf shed by bird, cat, dog, daughter, husband, et moi.
Starting repeatable December with Bigarade Concentree.

Trying out Dead Sexy by Tokyomilk today. Vanilla and orchid, not a new pairing but I like it. Slightly sweeter than Vaniglia del Madagascar, and much less $$$.

Take care, everyone. Happy December.
The creamy woody goodness of Chanel Bois des Iles edt today. It's cold & snow is falling, albeit very lightly. Pretty.
Tubereuse Criminelle today for me.
Opium Pour Homme EdP by Yves St. Laurent
I garnered a compliment at Starbucks this morning from the girl behind the counter. Wow, this stuff is potent!
