    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..."

    Nice choices for this chill ;-)

    I had LOTS of company yesterday, loved it!

    Bitter cold, so I'm in Madame X everything [ from the days od lotion, edp, parfum]-
    And off to work.
    I need to make it through today, then I'm set ;-)

    Big hugs, sweet ones.

    Looking forward to the Matisse, Modigliani, Monet and others
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. 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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    Oh Renee, I am SO envious!! I LIVED at the Barnes when I was a student at PAFA! They've got a couple gorgeous Roualts. Please say "Hi!" for me. *sigh*

    Chiwwy here today...gonna test drive Bois du Portugal (thanx KBE!!) Maybe a man's frag'll keep me warm!

    Later: Close! But no cigar. A nice woodsy oriental that (on me) opens with a blast of lavender and vetiver with a little ashtray thrown in and settles into a sort predictable ambery drydown.

    Found a recipe for trifle that I hope will be enjoyed.....this has been a most tricky task after all! Heading to the shops to buy the ingredients, also gotta roast our goose for tomorrow night's party. It's painfully cold here too. Need some warmth so I'll let Iris Ganache do it's work.

    Have a great day everyone!

    Finally back online after a fantastic, and much appreciated, vacation! For those who celebrated a birthday in my absence - I hope it was terrific! Today happens to be the son's eleventh birthday & we are preparing to host a New Years Eve sleep over for 6 of his buddies. I have collected 15 HUGE (appliance size) boxes, duct tape & plastic sheeting for the young fellows to create the "Ultimate Fort" in our basement. The Nerf guns are at the ready with plenty of ammo, the only thing left to stock up on is the popcorn and lemonade! The husband is going to buy some fireworks today - one of the cool perks of living in the Hoosier state! It should be loads of fun!

    Yay, welcome back Ubu! Happy Birthday to your son! What a cool mom you are to get all that stuff together for him and his buddies to have a great time.

    Libertine, that is a gorgeous display.

    I'm wearing YSL Parisienne today. I hope everyone is winding down the old year in peace and looking forward to 2010.

    Have a good day.

    Welcome back and Happy son's b'day, UBU!!! And Lovethescents, I want a full report on the goose, please. Will Hungarian customs let you send me leftovers?

    Today I am wearing the gorgeous (and gorgeously FRENCH) Nina Ricci Farouche, thanks to the extremely generous 3xasif!!!

    Mmmm, there's no mistaking Farouche for anything but the old-school, real deal it is: Aldehydes, florals, a touch of soap and some sort of civet-y nastiness to keep it interesting.

    Farouche notes (just re-looked up to check) : Aldehydes, Bergamot, Peach, Green Leaves, Rose, Carnation, Geranium, Cyclamen, Sandal, Vetiver, Musk, Amber.

    YUM! Wonderous Wednesday 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

    Ubu, my 13 yr old DD is having an early birthday celebration/camp reunion- 2 girls arrived from out of town yesterday and 2 more today....they stay until the 2nd. Five tween girls- thank goodness for basements is all I can say! Although while you are making tents and getting nerf guns (sounds so fun btw!!) we will be doing mass mani/pedis and listen to Justin Beiber on repeat LOL

    Meanwhile, I am trying my hardest to NOT fall deeply in love with my beautiful SOTD, Guerlain Plus Que Jamais...W O W

    I could play cardboard architect for days on end (at age 11 or 54). What fun for those young guys. Ubu, you're just the best mum.
