    Edit: Dora, hope all turns out well for your family... that kind of chaos you can do without! (((hugs)))

    A breezy sunny warm day here with loads of work to be done... So I'm starting my day in breezy Chanel Pour Monsieur over the faint drydown of yesterday's Black Aoud and a little faint Carven Vetiver... loads of housework to do first, then out to the garden to start the weeding and plant some more veg seed/sets. My mammoth sunflowers have just come up and I am imagining their gigantic happy blooms later this year along my back fence. Just get my pollen allergies in check and everything will be wonderful.

    Petra Ichor and kumquat, your pictures for today are perfect.

    Actiasluna, I hope your sunflowers do well for you. They are surely some of the cheeriest of flowers.

    Wearing Guerlain's Apres l'Ondee today on a very blustery day.
    Have a good Saturday, everyone!

    Oooo, Mama, I smell nice. Maximum comfort smells, but without sugary foods:
    Macchia Mediterranea, which I think smells like a very old spice pantry with wooden cupboards, and Black Vetyver Cafe, whose coffee note fits nicely in this pantry of scents.

    Yay! We’re officially poor! Uncle Sam audited our return and said we had $800 more coming back due to some semi-retiree, income-loss something-or-other. And 2010 is looking worse than 2009 income-wise, so lower taxes still! Woo-hoo.
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    Hello,

    It was a crazy day today! My uncle is in the hospital for a week now, yesterday evening my husband's brother was also brought to the hospital. They were moving him from hospital to hospital all night and...
    Today my father goes to the emergency hospital, too!!

    Imagine that today at the same time me and my husband were at the emergency departement of the same hospital for a different reason!
    We believed my father had a stroke but the good news is that the doctors didn't find anything wrong... He is home now and so I drove my daughters to meet their friends for Saturday evening. The streets were closed because a football final is taking place in the area, I made a huge cicle to reach the place of their appointment and now I will have to drive them back at the time the match will be finishing...

    I was wearing Voleur de Roses which had faded out a lot by the time we went to the hospital... Now, Evangeline's picture made me crave Aromatics Elixir, so that is going to be my sote.

    Agreed. I've got to try that Neroli. And Petra Ichor, I loved your Poppies story!

    Today, I'm home all day. Hooray! Testing two fragrances this morning, Goutal Eau de Sud and Tauer Orange Star. The first is great on me (love it!); the second is, sadly, not my cup of tea.

    Edit: Just read your post, Dora. I hope things settle down for you and your family!

    Really enjoyed Petra Ichor's story of the shop girl today.
    It's funny but the longer I'm a member, I'm finding that reading this thread while I'm making my tea helps me wake up and start the day.

    Libertine, you've broken me down, and I'm joining you in the mah-vel-ous Eau de Merveilles. It is perfect for my sunny, windy California Coastal day.
    Tonight will be vintage Diorissino I have read several times on the forums that the current formulation is bad. Finally got to sample it this week at a Saks and everyone is so right; shocking difference. I 'm very lucky my intro to the scent was a older bottle.

    Wow, I did some honking job of cleaning the house! Whoo hoo! And yes, that Pacifica French Lilac wasn't fading away the entire time -- WHAT did they put in there???

    Now after a shower I'm testing a long awaited Botrytis by Ginestet!

    *dora* -- best wishes of health to you and your family!!

    I'm wearing Habanita today. It is really hitting the spot today, sexy and warm but fun too.

    Oh gosh, Dora! I hope all turns out ok with your family.

    It's a bit cool for late April here and the sun's just come out after a raging rainstorm. In an effort to feel refreshed and "springy," I'm wearing Paco Rabanne Calandre.



    Have a wonderful rest of the weekend everyone!

    Poor Dora: go slow. I hope that your ailing ones are recovering now.

    The Verizon tech spent five hours here in my apartment installing Fios. Whenever he needed to talk "tech" or to instruct, my daughter kindly spoke to him. I felt like the immigrant mother who depends on her child to negotiate the language in the new country. My internet is certainly faster. But I need to learn to use a new TV remote!

    My daughter also kindly helped me to triage clothing. I was able to let go of many bags of clothing that I really no longer needed. I feel good after it all.

    I wore AL's Sweet Patchouli thoughout the whole day.

    (((Dora))) what an awful day. I am glad your dad is home now. Health wishes for your family.

    Today I tried Rose Oud from a sample. Last time I tried it I was not crazy about it, but today I liked it very much.

    Dora- I feel for you ,honey .
    RHM- I'm so glad Sofie is doing better.

    Tonight ,I'm wearing Carnal Flower from what's left of my sample. I've eaten so much I'm about ready to roll like a ball .

    ** Oh, I forgot- a historic moment today for me ,perfume wise- for the first time EVER , an SA at Sephora offered to make me up a sample ! So I ended up with actually two smaples of Michael Kors EDP and VIP by Usher.
    My husband got Guerlain Vetiver as a sample from another SA at Sephora- hmmm... maybe I'll make a perfumista outta him yet ! His first ever sample and he got Amazing Grace body cream too- though how the SA thought it appropriate for him ,I don't know. He's getting very good at getting samples ,this man of mine. ..... I think he flirts with them ,naughty DH - one told him 'You must be an interesting man ! ' *LOL*

    What is happening to me- I actually liked VIP by Usher very much even though- *shock horror ! * it's a celebuscent and for men ...................

    Having done my gardening and some other chores, I'm now relaxing in Montale Black Aoud...

    And wishing my roses smelled as good. But they are certainly coming on, for "big box home store-bought fairly incandescent dark pink roses" (courtesy of the former owners of my home.)

    I love your account of your day, Therese! :-)

    My SotD is Jean Patou Colony, the famous pineapple chypre that some of you have raved about. I'm glad I broke out my sample. What an interesting fragrance! I'm at the drydown now, and it's very, very fine. And if I could have this bottle, well, I'd certainly not complain! :-)
