    Happy Earth Day everyone!

    I haven't been posting much lately because I've been doing so much writing that I haven't felt up to writing my little daily reviews. I've finally shed my guilt and want to check in with my peeps here on the forums.

    First for any and all birthdays and events prior to today I hope they were all beautifully scented and thoroughly celebrated.
    For those who were suffering hopefully it is in the past.
    Now that I'm sort of caught up.

    RHM these situations where the doctors can't pin something definitive down are nerve-wracking but I hope they can find something sooner rather than later.

    I am wearing one of my acquisitions form Sniffapalooza today.

    Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine.

    Definitely one of the highlights of Sniffapalooza for me. now that luckyscent is carrying them, they are worth a sample I think.

    Have a Tranquil Thursday everyone.

    Happy Earth Day! In honor of the occasion, I am wearing Vent Vert -- the mini just arrived in the mail last night. Crisp and a little harsh green at the opening, now it's turning into green and warm, like hay with wildflowers mixed in drying in the sun.

    RHM, health and strengths to you and your daughter!

    Eva, thanks for the quote and for the message! I needed something like today as I am willing to take some risks, stepping into a professional field that is quite new to me. It may lead me to a nice volunteer experience or it may lead me to a career change -- that I don't know right now! Anyway, your message was right on target for me today, thank you.

    I have Miracle on me and in my purse should I need to touch up during this long day full of meetings. A+ for getting me going so far!!

    You all are so kind! Thank you, very, very much.

    We're home and I do believe we have had some success. We saw a pediatric neurologist, a really wonderful guy. He diagnosed Sofie with vertingious migraines, with a "touch" of panic attack. I vividly remember the fear I felt as a migraine developed, so I can well believe the "panic" part.

    No quick fixes but it's not something life threatening.

    I have to change my SOTD, Sofie says she smells "cat pee" in the dry down of YD, edp. So after I wash this off, I'll put on something she enjoys: VISA edp. (Her choice.)

    RHM - I am glad that you had a reasonably good visit with your neurologist. Good to have an idea of what is going on...(((RHM and Sofie))) I hope she feels better very soon. (Did he prescribe something that might help her a little?)

    SOTD: Boucheron

    Last night, my sampling of the Orange Sanguine put me in a mood where I really wanted to sniff those cheery orange blossoms at the top of the Boucheron...it feels like a long week, doesn't it? BTW, I noticed SMM's comment about the Orange Sanguine at LS (yay!), but Neiman's also carries it (the samples I have were included in their recent "Beauty Event" promo maybe a month or so ago). Just in case anyone was wondering...

    Lots of very realistic orange in the OS (actually, more like freshly peeled tangerine, skin and all, to my nose)...I can never seem to stay awake long enough to enjoy the drydown, and when I wake in the morning, it's completely vanished.

    Love and hugs to all...have a great Thursday...

    Can you imagine I forgot it was Earth Day till now ??? So Happy Earth day everyone - recycling stuff ,trying not to use the lights so much - so I guess that counts for me today.

    This evening I am wearing Tihota by Indult from a sample . A very good creamy ,buttery vanilla and musk scent but OH so so expensive and frankly, I still prefer the scent of Olay's Vanilla Indulgence . NOTHING , I mean NOTHING beats Olay's Vanilla Indulgence. If they made that into a body spray -, I'll buy what they have at Target, by the carton.

    I'm wearing Bulgari pour Femme today, a lovely and elegant rose + violet fragrance that seems perfect for Spring.

    RHM, please give my best to Sofie ... and a few hugs also.

    Chaya, could you please explain this Retrograde Mercury thing? It could cause communication issues? Boy oh boy, has THAT been happening at work!!!

    Asha, I have been missing you! Now, I also miss ComDiva, musse, Riannon, and now Sunnyfunny. Hope you are OK, gals?

    When Mercury is retrograde, it is best time to reflect upon the past -- both distant and recent -- and to analyze the mistakes we have all made and their impact on us and our surroundings. Contemplate or sleep. Do not start anything new, shy away from gossip -- all will go crooked and your words will be all twisted, you do not need that! Frequent stops and miscommunication is possible on all levels -- family, country leaders, businesses. Humble yourself down, crawl back to you shell, sniff the flowers, read the book, speak as little as possible.

    Annick Goutal Grand Amour (after all those XerJoff samplings and testings, I have almost written D'un Amore Grande, like from that 80-s song), rather enjoying it.

    Hello to all my darlings and Happy Earth Day.
    I have been so consumed with the house restoration that I have neglected BN and everyone here. My super apologies to everyone and birthday wishes to all those that I missed and joyful wishes for all other occasions and prayers that all sadness/illness is long gone at this point in time.

    RHM, my goodness you and Sofie are having a time of it. I wish you both the best and give that sweetheart a huge loving hug from me. At least you have somewhat of an answer now though.

    I have not posted in...well, forever, at least that is what it feels like. But I have been wearing many of my older Nina Ricci scents almost exclusively for months. Nina (original), L'air du Temps, Farouche, Eau de Fleurs, Fleur de Fleurs, Capricci, Cœur Joie, Mademoiselle Ricci, Fille d'Ève and Deci Dela. So that sums up my SotD for the last few months

    My SotD, I was quite under the weather (tore up old floorboards in the upstairs bathroom yesterday) and just barely pulled myself out of bed, but I dabbed on some Mademoiselle Ricci, which is a Nina Ricci treasure, albeit a pretty much unknown treasure. But it was perfect for a pain filled groggy day.

    Wishing you all joy, happiness, peace, tranquility and good health

    As always, love and hugs to all.

    Oh, and of course, huge welcomes to all of the newer members. You have found fragrance Nirvana here.
