    Creed Love in White for me this morning. Woke up to the sounds of thunder and flashes of lightning. Will spend the weekend off in -- stitching, cleaning, sleeping, reading, healing. Maybe, indulging. If they call from work -- the answering machine will pick it up.

    Stay put. Hugs.

    I'm loving my Poppies, because it proves there's affordable, enjoyable and interesting scents out there, in the oddest places. I got a tiny 12ml bottle from a small UK company called First Impressions who, I'm guessing, added some perfumes to compliment their main business which includes vintage style perfume bottles.

    Imagine it's 1930, you've moved up to the big city and managed to get a job as a salesgirl. You're sharing a tiny efficency with another girl, have one pair of stockings and have been living on grilled cheese for a month. You get paid. You go out and buy a hat with far too much trim and a tiny bottle of Poppies perfume. In ten years time you'll look back and laugh at how gauche you were but at that moment in time you felt just like Greta Garbo.
    Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.

    Ecume de Rose by Rosine for me today,,,well for now anyway. I find I need multiple scents these days.

    Pretty day here but chilly, we had frost last night.

    My daughter is doing better. But, did you know Pepto Bismol can cause your tongue to turn black? We discovered that this last night. Who knew?

    I met Raphaella & Mark David very briefly in NYC for lunch at the Landmark. We were celebrating Sniffapalooza Magazine placing two articles in the top five FiFi awards, once again this year. The two writers are BOTH basenote members, Michael Davis & Mark David.

    Congratulations!!!!

    Day 4 with a non-working sniffer, but I'll spray something on anyway. I haven't decided yet but I'm thinking ultra-spicy, woodsy Comme des Garcons Eau de Parfum: "works like a medicine and behaves like a drug." Sure couldn't hurt any!

    Best to all!

    Hello everyone!

    We had torrential rain yesterday for the first day of Jazz Fest, and it looks like there's more in store for today. This seems to happen for at least one weekend of the festivities every year, so we came prepared with rain panchos...but I really needed galoshes. Schlepping around all day in soggy sandals isn't as delightful as it sounds!

    I'm in Aromatics Elixir by Clinique. It's perfect.





    Y'all have a wonderful day!

    I missed posting for a couple of days:
    SotD for Thursday was L'Artisan La Chasse aux Papillons
    SotD for Friday was SSS Wood Violet

    Starting off this morning in a sample of Keiko Mecheri Damascena: A soliflore of sorts which includes Dades rose, May rose, berries and musk.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    Sorry I have been away from the forums a bit; still quite amazingly busy (it all relates to perfume though... so that's good!). We're working on a huge project at work with Mark and Simon. Grant should be putting up a new column soon with some background.

    By a strange coincidence, I very nearly reached for Tam Dao today too; looks like plenty of you are on a Diptyque-kick. I am growing more and more fond of that brand generally and want several of their scents...

    However, I have been wearing Miller Harris and Goutal this week. For the last couple of days (including today) it's been Terre de Bois. Somehow it seems less masculine and more spring-floral-leafy without being sweet to me right now. I am really in the mood for it.

    Also had a strange experience with a new Lush shower gel - we've just launched 'Grass' green shower gel, which sure enough, opens with a burst of cut grass, but there was a strange undertone to the scent that I just couldn't put my finger on until I used it before bed-time and dreamed I was back in the 80s working behind a perfume counter and wearing Opium by YSL. I woke up realising that that's what's under there! Grass and Opium! LOL! I must tell Simon because I'm not sure if he realised it.

    My arm still smells of lilac from yesterday. Given the fact that I applied it at 9 a.m. and didn't reapply, it is less than 15 minutes short of hitting the full 24 hours of longevity with just a little dab! Time for me to get a wet chore (there's plenty of opportunity for that, and we're having company tonight) and then apply something different.

    something dark like Mitsouko that shines like Samsara
    Mr. G, what a nice description! I'll need to go to your site and check out the music that comes with this scent.

    Have a wonderful day, y'all!
