    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Ate too much pre-Birthday choklit cake and am wide awake at a quarter to four. Was asked what fume I wanted for b-day and modestly requested White Linen since I figured that at least it could be found in our cultural wasteland.

    What I got was....

    ...and I think I am liking it. Not as distinguished as the original - and I'm getting a lot of citrus. But it's fresh and pretty and suitable for summer, for sure.

    Gonna try going back to bed now.

    We have two birthdays today -- Whisperingleaves and Ubu's auntie (cavaliercanary) -- happy day to you and many fragrant surprises. Once again this time of a year I notice that geminis are favored at BN -- we might not speak so eloquently as other signs, but sure like wearing our fumes and have some information/sample exchange.

    Ms.H -- I loved your joke about food and fragrance pairing for Q-fest yesterday. I wore it last night too.

    It is still hot here and the humidity is decent (well, more decent) and it is bearable this early in the morning. We have not got any promised showers or any rain, for this matter. I chose Armand Basi In Red for today.

    My throat feels better.

    Sofie's concert went very well last night. She is one of four first sopranos.....no AC though in the auditorium & it was 82 at 8:30 pm outside. Inside, under the lights.....much, much hotter.

    How nice to be remembered on my birthday! I've not been posting for awhile -- springtime means loads of pollen here and allergies so can't wear any fragrance. Pollen is gone -- back to wearing scent again. Am still in my nightie answering all my facebook birthday messages and just enjoying the morning. Haven't decided on a SOTD yet but it will be special...

    Today I'm in my cocoon, Castelbajac, all snug and cosy and safe. I found a half bottle on eBay, so, with some in the reserves, I can wear this a little more often again!

    Happy Birthdays to Whispering Leaves, Cavalier Canary and, I believe, BlackCat too! And Happy Thrusday to the rest of us :)

    Vincent Van Gogh, 1888
    Morgane Le Fay - Yellow

    To say this is cheerful, sounds so trite, yet,
    it is there in the lightest of jasmine and lotus.
    The sky is clear blue as the hyacinth and
    as crisp and clean as the lemon here.
    A teeter-totter would be most appropriate as
    a gentle glide through this sunny day progresses.

    Notes; Bergamot, blue hyacinth, lemon, jasmine,
    peony, lotus blossom, iris, musk, oak moss

    Hello everyone!

    Happy birthday wishes to whisperingleaves and cavaliercanary , and many fragrant returns of the day to you both!

    I'm glad you're feeling better Twolf! And no, purple beer isn't anything I've heard of (although you just have to add food coloring, so it's certainly possible!) I was just attempting a funny about the green beer that's a tradition on St. Patrick's day and IrishFest...get it?

    I'm in vintage Chamade edt, a gorgeous fragrance for this gorgeous day!





    Hoping y'all have a gorgeous day, too!

    Happy happy to whisperingleaves and cavaliercanary!

    Just got cbihateperfume samples from TPC... and this guy is BLOWING ME AWAY.
    I have Forest Floor on my right wrist, Pipe Tobacco on my left; Hay on my right arm and Burning Leaves on my left. Wow. Wow.

    Might just have to involve my knees here, shortly, 'cause I still have Black March, In the Library, Soaked Earth and Grass to go.


    Fragrant day, y'all!
    I am operating within established parameters. How are you?

    Oh! I love the hummingbird birthday photo! And kumquat, you make me want every perfume that you so beautifully depict with images and words. And Thalia, love the blues... such lovely images today.

    More importantly! Wishing CavalierCanary and WhisperingLeaves a very lovely birthday!

    Today I'm in a just-arrived-yesterday ebay steal, Chantilly, Houbigant. I love this hobnail bottle... and this scent: spicy, flowery, powdery, amber. Very retro style. Most amazing atomizer -- you barely touch it and a very fine mist is propelled out -- are there some hidden hydraulics working in there somewhere? (A welcome change from the drippy spritzers so many of my current frags have.)

    Roll out the red carpet, let confetti compound,
    There are birthdates to honor, more honorees to be crowned!

    Today it's Cavaliercanary and Whisperingleaves,
    Tomorrow it's T-lady — whom we all love like cheese!




    More Mitsouko for me in the merry month of May.

    My dears: I'm humbled by your royal treatment over my 55th yesters. You are the most fun and fragrant peeps on the planet. Haunani, I love your mention of G
    reen Eggs and Ham (my copy of that word-juggling classic stands less than 10 feet from me), but I opted for tiramisu for breakfast. Electric eel — good one, Zibeline! As Thalia apparently already knows, eel meat is just mildly fishy, sort of sweet, and just a tad rubbery. Always said I'd have no qualms about eating snake, but eel had me a little psyched. As it turned out, DD's BF made sushi wraps, and BBQed eel topped just a few of the tidy rice packages.
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
