    Good morning Looking outside is rather depressing!We even have to shovel snow today!Today is one of those kind of busy days.Have quite a bit of editing to do on my Law assignment and am meeting some co-workers at a Cafe later. Sotd is a littlebit neglected scent, Nu edp. I try not to wear it so often since it's discontinued. Have a great day everyone.

    Keep you chin up, Ineespenes! Sending you a ((hug)).

    Eau de Merveilles does sound rather wonderful. I'm putting it right now on my "to sample" list along with assorted other things I've never gotten to.

    It's chilly here this morning, but sunny (not Norway chilly, but chilly for Virginia). I'm wearing a sprtiz of Aqua Allegoria Figue-Iris, but I think it's better in hot weather.

    Smile! It's Wednesday!

    Adding: Eva Pasco, that was the poet whose name I was trying so hard to remember while lying in bed this morning. I kept thinking to myself, "the one from Amherst, what's her name?" I was looking outside and remembering a bit of a poem she wrote about how on a certain type of spring day it can seem like you're back in autumn. Or maybe it was the other way 'round.

    SMM, your adventures — always cresting new fragrance horizons — are just so darn exciting. I’m happy for you.

    The hEcTiC has settled here. Early Tuesday a.m. DD and NYC GF returned from Nashville half marathon and required attention. Monday night’s presentation was well received, and I got lots of nice comments — “I’ve been attending these meetings and seminars for 20 years, and your program was the best one of all time. It was like 10 programs in one.” [Oh, I can’t even feign blushing. Yes. I am T-H-A-T good.]

    Did stop by the mall on Monday, and was customarily disgusted with the offerings except for … wait for it … Leslie Blodget Golden Light (mandarin, kiwi, bergamot, red currant, water lily, honeysuckle, peony, teakwood, musk and orris). Smitten! Sweet and tart lemonade. Didn't buy it at the time, but will get it soon.

    Needing to feed the tart desire, I’m wearing L’Artisan d’Humeur Jalouse today. (Winks yet again at Ubu.) It’s so much like rhubarb, I could just pucker.
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    I'm in Cabochard edp (modern, never smelled the vintage). This is supposed to be "too tame," but I smell like a gentleman's well-worn tobacco pouch full of sweet cured pipe tobacco and I don't think I would want it to be too much more than what it is.

    I decided to get creative this morning (before I showered just in case my experiment went awry).

    Started with a layer of vintage original Aveda LOVE oil and then generously spritzed Priscilla Presley Roses and More (thanks Tao) on top...what I got is a glorious rosey floral and sandalwood extravaganza! Gosh I smell good.

    Professor SMM - I'm so curious about your Saks class! I'm not a Facebook member, but it ("it" = your class) sounds very cool. Good luck with it!

    Weary here. Not sleeping so well. Worried about things. Sigh.

    Nevertheless, my morning stop here to the SOTD thread is something that I enjoy...today, I'm finding it inspiring.

    Interesting to read your thoughts about various fragrances colliding with my perceptions today -- spicy beast Nahema? comforting Habanita? briney Merveilles? is Alien ever any good on anyone besides Diva and Sunnyfunny? :-) Agree with clearing power of Prescriptives Calyx, however.

    SotA is Cacharel's Liberté, which I love and haven't worn lately. I'm also testing out a gigundo bottle of Cabaret by Grès, which I bought blind at Marshall's this afternoon. I'd read so many raves on it, but I'm not sure this is for me. I can't think what it reminds me of...Paloma Picasso? Coriandre? I need some time with it. My bottle is all clear, with no red.
