    Good morning folks! I am enjoying our sudden heatwave and
    applying AA Mandarine Basilic (Guerlain.) This is definitely one
    of my favourite summer scents of late.

    First off...THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU to THALIA...who put me onto Keiko Mecheri's sample program.

    LADIES!! (Gents too - lots of these fumes are eminently uni-sex) for a mere $65 clams you get 2.5 ml each of all 31 of her scents in three elegant grey "linen" bound coffers with blotter strips included. And that includes postage!!

    I was gonna do a thread - and a Mecheri every day for a month - but I've got houseguests coming for the next couple of weeks so that wouldn't work.

    Today it's a beautiful soft leather with some citrus and flowers over amber called
    A Fleur de Peau.

    Luvvin' it. Even more, the guileless and charming copy: "An olfactive impression of a fine piece of leather skin. The fragrance adorns an animalic sensuality in departure harmonized in suppleness with a floral accord"

    Couldn'ta said it better myself!!

    Hello everyone!

    It's finally warm here so I can start enjoying another new acquisition, the soft and mellow orange blossom, mimosa and honeysuckle accords of Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Flora Nymphea. It's not exciting or ground-breaking, but it's so, so pretty and just perfect for a balmy spring day. Bees will love it.




    Y'all have a wonderful day!

    Wearing Guerlain With Love again ~ roses, peonies and white amber.
    Am clapping my hot little hands for Twolf’s latest performance of stitchery as seen in yesterday’s SoTD.

    Thank you, Haunani, for saying you feel the same funny illusion about control. I'm trying to embrace Taolady’s wisdom about recognizing the illusion. So help me, though, I'm going to time-manage my way back into this forum. [Stomps Birky foot.]

    Actiasluna, you are so right about the “sturdy but bland” produce trucked across continents. Here’s news coverage of the Champ Elysees farmers exhibition mentioned yesterday. Those little piglet butts are screamingly adorable.

    Wishing ineespenes a great anniversary celebration!

    I'm off to work; SotD is Gump's Baroque Pearl. As described on the Gump's website:

    Inspired by the sensual beauty and iridescent luster of this exquisite gem, the luminous floral unfolds in layers, with top notes of exotic bergamot and mandarin giving way to shimmering orange blossom and finishing with creamy sandalwood. Like a pearl, the fragrance thrives on contact with the skin, constantly revealing new dimension and nuance.
    This fragrance doesn't get me excited, for some reason, but it is very pretty!

    Wearing CDG Stephen Jones again. It's amazing how different this is in hot weather. I'd been sampling in the chill and it was positively unfriendly (which I adore), but in the heat it is almost sociable! It's like watching someone come out of their shell at the office party!

    Haunani, yes, the bottle (and packaging) is just too lovely isn't it! I'd thought it was going to be black black, but the glass is almost a cool dark grey when held to the light.

    Taolady, Oooh, the big box of Mecheri! You go!
    Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
