    I'm so happy to know that things are coming together for you and your mother, 30 Roses - it's good to have you back!

    Y'all have a great day
    !

    Guerlain's Parure EdT. Smells so manly today, but maybe not in 1975?

    First up, thank you for the welcome over the week!

    Nothing during the day but the trace of Angel on an unwashed jumper, but after a bath with my vetiver loofah and some rose body wash, it all becomes clear. Voleur de Roses by L'Artisan Parfumeur.

    Have a fragrant weekend :)

    Tested AG's Ninfeo Mio yesterday evening. The opening was very strange: dill and figs. No joke. It smelled just like pickles and figs for the longest time. I'll give my sample another test run or two to see what I p/u on subsequent wearings, but I must say that so far I'm not impressed. Whew. Money saved!

    Today I'm back to No 5 Eau Premiere. What a relief.

    So far, I've found the following:

    - Winter coats, scarves etc tend to "lock" fragrance. On coats - the sleeves tend to be the area that picks up the most.
    - Some scents are just that stubborn....

    As a result, I find I unconsciously "trend". This week, stuff with a touch of leather or herbs (wearing Kilians Cruel Intentions, which is more leathery today than I remember). Last week - vanilla. Next week - who knows....
    So glad to know it isn't just me, sakecat. And your explanation makes tons of sense. The "trending" thing also tracks for me. Wow. Thank you!

    Wearing AL Nude Musk today. Oh, I think it is part of the trending thing mentioned by sakecat. Take care, all!

    I love rewarding myself with a fragrant shower after a good workout - creams and gels with smells and lotions and potions make me feel so pampered and girly, especially after working up a good sweat! I did the hard part, so now I'm freshly scrubbed, softened and scented with Aromatics Elixir (...courtesy of the shower gel, body cream and just a touch of perfume to punch up the patchouli - I can almost see the soft green cloud around me!)

    This reminds me of Hillaire's recent thread about perfumed bath and body products, because these are some of the most highly-scented and luxurious that I've come across. And Clinique's prices are very good, especially considering the quality of these products. I've said this before but it's worth repeating - if you think you should but don't like AR, or just find it a bit too strong, then give the body cream a chance. It's much softer but still extremely fragrant - the potent perfume spray is not the only way to go.

    Feeling better, even slept all right (remember, I am the can't-sleepest of them all, regularly, and then again, what's regular any more?), upbeat and ready to go work again.

    Keeping 30R. and family in my thoughts.

    Pi-day, Q.? (Givenchy Pi again, anyone?) How 'bout Tig's B-day tomorrow?

    I am in a cloud of powdery EL White Linen, somehow thinking of DK Cashmere Mist, KenzoFlower, Mariella Burani, even Chanel #5.

    Trying to enjoy my hefty orientals before the winter comes to a close (though I have plenty of time here) and inspired by NTesla's threads I'm joining the Habit Rouge Eau de Parfum admiration society for my scent of the evening.

    Twolf, I'm glad you got a good night's sleep. The body can often heal itself if we can give it the chance to do so.

    Well, it is a done deal-- today I wrote out the largest check of my life, and Mom is now officially a lifetime resident of the senior apartment complex I referred to, although we can't actually move her in until we buy some furniture! Tomorrow we'll tackle that.

    We were delighted to learn that the whole family will be welcome to join Mom in the heated pool and adjacent hot tub! (That'll be a first for me.)

    She seemed to really like the place. It is in one of the newer buildings and has amenities particularly suited to seniors-- like a seat built into the molded shower enclosure; a bathroom large enough to allow one to maneuver with a rolling walker or a wheelchair should it become necessary, an emergency call bell situated a foot above the floor next to the toilet (if one is on the floor, it helps to have a button within reach!) and even what I call a "Help I've fallen and I can't get up" button/necklace linked to the phone system, which the resident can wear all the time.

    I also bought Mom a cane today and taught her how to use it. Hopefully her "wobbles" will be short-lived, but we can't have her falling in the meantime.

    I can't believe it was only 2 weeks ago today that we first visited the place to inquire about whether there was any hope of getting Mom in there. It is inconceivable that this could have accomplished in so short a time without God's help. Many, many thanks to all who have been praying! I can hardly tell you how supported I have felt even in the midst of the stress.

    The apartment complex sounds very good, 30 Roses. Yay!

    Switched to AL Rasa -- it always reminds me a tad of Montale's Aoud Shiny. But I like both, so why complain? Have a splendid evening, all.
