A relaxing Sunday to all who need one!
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
One needs very little of Cinnabar to go a long way...my choice today.

This week, 'Chanel Cuir de Russie: Skin Scent' at http://thescentimentalist.blogspot.com/
I'm wearing Maya by AbdesSalaam Attar Profumo.
Chocolate, vanilla and spices.
Still coasting on chocolate, which daughter has worked into tons of birthday desserts for husband (today I wished him happy birthday, day III). Will somebody come over and help eat all this stuff?
Gave DH the choice in the final selection process — Jicky or Cadjmere for our day outside? Jicky it is!
Happy to have negotiated a swap for 10ml more Cadjmere, so feeling quite content about the whole wardrobe at present.
Can't bear to look at any more sugary confections, so you’re getting sparkling champagne, dear Rain Drop! Have an exceptional day all day long.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Happy Birthday, Raindropsparkle! (Q, I'm sorry - don't look )

It's the final day of the French Quarter Festival , and I'm in another from Keiko Mecheri - this time it's the beautiful floral White Petals. I love several of KM's florals but this is my favorite. Dewey and lush, soft and serene - perfect for a mild and sunny day.
Happy Birthday RainDropSparkle!
Y'all have a great day!

Thanks for birthday wishes yesterday! Argh, getting old Today, it's Guerlain's sublimely uplifting Chamade PdT
Happy Birthday K / RainDropSparkle ! Have a very wonderful new year ! XOXOXO
Musc Ravageur, but after Pilates class. The other day, the woman on the next mat was wearing Angel, a fragrance that I rather enjoy sniffing on others. But in the heat and close quarters, it was a bit too much, prevented me from focussing.
Afternoon to y'all,
wonderful spring day here, so I dug out the spring flowers; Yardley's April Violets layered with Guerlain's Les Meteorites. Bootiful.
Profumum - Oxiana
Powerfully green at first, edginess gives way to creamy myrrh.

Started as soirdelune's scent sister in Un Jardin sur le nil... used matching lotion for first time, to extend the wear. YES! Lasted 40 minutes instead of 30...
Next, inspired by musse, am wearing Libertine. That will get me to the plant nursery and maybe through lunch...
Will go upscale to the museum this afternoon (Alice Neel paintings!) in Bois des Iles
Happy birthday Raindropsparkle! (what a pretty name...)
I'm in Mimosa Pour Moi today!
I have to go prune all my rose bushes but I'm just enjoying sitting here for a few more minutes (procrastinating, in other words!)
I'm wearing Bulgari Blu Notte today.
Sending happy birthday wishes to RainDropSparkle
Givenchy Ysatis Iris...

Happy birthday, RainDropSparkle!
It was a very busy Sunday and I was wearing Frapin 1270
This afternoon ,my husband bought me Nahema EDP from my local perfume store . That place is a treasure trove of wonderful perfumes that people have forgotten about in favor of Paris Hilton and Heat by Beyonce. The packaging is black and gold- so I guess this is from the 1990s. So Nahema is my Scent of The Afternoon. I love it.
Happy Birthday, RainDropSparkle!
Wore SSS Rose Musc.
(hope your b'day was as wonderful as can be!)
Tonight (since the sweetie's now winging off elsewhere for a while) I'm in Habit Rouge EDP (vintage I believe... the EDP is warm and wonderful.)
Ok, then 5 or 6 sprays on each arm of M. Ellena's creation will also be my testing standard- just as soon as the Royal Bain de Champagne I doused myself in about 4 hours ago wears off

Happy Birthday raindropsparkle. What gorgeous imagery today (I especially love bloomy's masculine iris and haunani's stunning spiny flower with sparkling raindrops!)
I wore Polo Modern Reserve all day--so fresh and green. Maybe some sampling this later evening, but enjoying the drydown of the Polo now.

You perfume perfume.

Thank you Asha! (what a lovely photo... I had a little spider share the ride today with me on a riding mower, and he or she didn't leave for quite a while. Such personality some of those creatures have!) And I had a lovely birthday weekend... hope Mr G and RainDropSparkle did as well!
Good evening everyone!
I'm feeling pooped but pampered after a heavenly shower with Aromatics Elixir gel, followed by the heavenly body cream and a small spritz of perfume to punch up the patchouli. I'm really smelling up the place, and nobody's complaining. It's perfect!

Now, if you ever see that velvet sheer gel (I think that's what it's called) get it! It's discontinued but still available online and super affordable. It's the perfect consistency for a roll-on, and it's a bit more subtle than the perfume spray. I like the spray for the blast of patchouli, and the cream (get this too if you don't already have it) and sheer gel stuff for the florals...actually, I wear all of them together and there's just nothing like it.
(I think we have rather similar tastes, Leesee, and that makes me so happy because I've noticed what extraordinary taste you have! )
Aqua Velva Ice Blue Classic tonight.

Hello dear, sweet BNers! Thank you SO much for the lovely birthday wishes! I love all the beautiful pictures - cakes, flowers, champagne....plus the rain and raindrops, too!
You all are so kind. Thank you so much for your good wishes.
I had a nice birthday weekend. A little shopping, a little relaxing...tonight, DH cooked me a delicious dinner. Then, DH and my little girl sang "Happy Birthday" to me, and we had some cake (yum!).
SOTEvening is Manoumalia
Have a good night everyone, and we'll see you at the start of another week...hugs to all of you...
