    Hello everyone ! Hugs all round ! Love you all you know !

    Well,my lovely little 15 ml bottle Narcisse Noir extrait arrived today . I had the hardest time getting the darned little black stopper off.

    This is even better than I remember. Incense ,incense,incense ,white flower garlands. It's sensual , narcotic. Narcotic is the first word that popped into my head actually, from the first drop I applied.
    I am in love !

    Good Morning everybody! All of your good wishes have worked because I feel great. (Still have a rock in my back but hey...things could be worse.) I have an appointment with my cute doc this morning and we'll figure out what to do next.

    SOTD is a second try for Paris edp by YSL. This time I sprtized once and on my ankle. It's still strong but I'm not getting a headache. The roses in this are lovely. Here's a list of the notes from this "old" girl (1983) by Sophia Grojsman
    "top notes: Bergamot, Geranium, hawthorn, Hyacinth
    heart note: Mimosa, Rose, Violet, Lily of the valley
    base note: Cedar, Sandal, Heliotrope, Amber"
    Notes are from the OsMoz web site.

    Glad you're feeling perkier RHM; hope they can lithotrip you again and get that rock out. In the meantime... rock on?

    Ines - Tao's right; it will all work out. It's just sucky while it's all doing the working. Hang in there honey and keep your chin up.

    Cha-cha Chaya! What? You couldn't even manage a morsel of cheese or maybe an olive or two? You must be poorly, hon. Hugs to you. I hold your hand through the interweb, and pat it gently. Mwa.

    Libertine - that's a hard day you've got in front of you. Chin up and keep the positive things that are coming to you now in mind.

    Me? I'm enjoying one of my Magic Mondays: Small is in school ALL DAY on Mondays and I love it. (I know I'm supposed to miss her desperately, but since she's in the new school and is a lot happier and getting her mojo back, I feel I can let out a sigh of relief on Mondays and recharge my batteries.) Today I have read a book, had a nap and spent more than 30 seconds putting on my makeup. I even brushed my hair into something resembling a style. And I'm doing all this while wearing another chypre - one that I claimed was my ultimate nemesis until just a few months ago: Cabochard. It's the new version, so it's weak as water, not the vintage stuff Luca Turin says smelled like seriously dirty underwear. But it has that bitter smack of oakmoss that I have learned to love, and those of you who know me already know of my predeliction for all things leather. It's good. Geez, I really have grown up, huh?

    Have a good day all. xxx

    Happy International Women's Day and Mothers' Day for these folks whose countries celebrate!

    Almost put on Mimosa pour Moi -- what else rather than Mimosa on this day? -- but opted for Armand Basi In Red instead -- the ultimate non-ozonic spring freshness, tiny sticky buds on the frozen branches and full sun on the slushy dirt. We are finally melting here and had a very hard rain Saturday night -- I came home like a drowned kitten, Mr.T said I should have called.

    Dragging butt bigtime today. Sleep issues going on 8 days now. I'm not a great sleeper normally, but usually if I have problems, I take a valerian or some passion flower and no big deal. Daniel thinks it might be hormonal-based (as in menopausal?). Thinking I might need a dr appt some time this week.

    Didn't check in yesterday, so Sunday stats:
    AM: Boucheron
    PM: OJ Frangipani Absolute

    Today:
    AM: Invasion Barbare
    Brought a bottle of Paco Rabanne Metal for this afternoon.

    Happy birthday to Snafoo!


    and Mira!


    Quarry - we're keeping the barn, at least for now. Decided to go with a modular home farther back on the property. Daniel wants to look over all barn options carefully before deciding what we need to do.

    Still doing the sample dump. Take sample (about .5 mL) - dump on chest - wear for day.
    Amazing how different some scents smell when worn liberally.

    Today - the last of my Le Parfum de Therese. Melons and leather with a hint of clean saliva. I've been nursing this sample trying to determine whether I like this or not. I've come to the conclusion that it is not me - but I am glad it has crossed my path for this short stretch of time.

    Happy Birthday to Snafoo and Mira!!!

    More positive vibes to all who need them, the sad part is it seems like the list keeps getting longer.

    I think it is going to be amber week and I'm starting with a new one.

    Christian Dior Ambre Nuit

    In 2004 Christian Dior released, under the aegis of Hedi Slimane, three fragrances that were sold exclusively in their Dior Homme stores. Bois D’Argent, Cologne Blanche, and Eau Noire were three very good fragrances and like Oliver Twist, colognoisseurs wanted “more, please.” Unfortunately M. Slimane left Christian Dior and it seemed this expansion in to niche men’s fragrances would also be gone with him. Now, five years later we find that Christian Dior was going to pick up the ball and add a new fragrance, Ambre Nuit composed by Francois Demachy. As always when something comes back, after the creative inspiration has left, one can have some trepidation at the result. For me I am pleased to say that Ambre Nuit can easily be seen on the shelf with the first three as an equal and not a poor relation.

    Ambre Nuit begins with a breath of bergamot and pink pepper. The pepper is only the first spice to come as there is a beautiful mélange of spices in the heart and all of them are combined with a biting spicy rose accord. It isn’t listed but I keep thinking I get a hint of oud deep in the heart of Ambre Nuit and whatever it is makes for an added depth to the heart of Ambre Nuit. The base is a light application of cedar and gaiac. Throughout the development the amber is present; it is soft and rich and keeps this fragrance cohesive and consistent. The omnipresence of the amber can make Ambre Nuit feel almost linear in development and in my first wear of it I thought that might be a problem. Subsequent wears indicate that M. Demachy was after a subtle effect and it is achieved especially with a slightly heavier application that I usually use.

    Ambre Nuit has average longevity and modest sillage, it is almost a true skin scent as you have to be very close for another person to detect it.

    I am delighted to find Christain Dior back in the men’s fragrance business and I am especially delighted to find they have as much respect for the line as I have. Ambre Nuit does not suffer by comparison to the past.

    Have a Mirthful Monday everyone.

    Had a few stressful talks today - balanced out by heartwarmingly wonderful words of support from friends.
    Scent was an afterthought: Sensuous again as I threw it in my bag yesterday.
    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.
