"Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
as usual a gorgeously smelling bunch, but I think ubu blows my mind especially.
I'm in SJP Lovely, which I still think is, well, lovely. Celebrating Mother's day in Sweden today, but there was no fume in my present this year.
Cristalle by Chanel.
Good morning, sistahs and bros in fragrance! Can you believe that May is almost over?! I'm off to hula practice in a few dabs of Chamade parfum. Ahhh, I deserve this indulgence!
This morning I'm in Fiore d'Ulivo with some J. Peterman 1903 layered in for added yum... a good combo for the warm day that just keeps getting warmer.
I'm thinking about making my burgeoning sample and decant box the source for my SOTD for a while, I think with the summer coming on the variety will do me good... I've received samples and goodies from a few generous basenoters and am itching to give 'em a good try. (Will set the cooler-weather scent samples aside for the fall.)
Edit: Oh, POO! Just went out and wrangled some weeds, and the weeds won. Pulled something in my back (did this once before and was "out" for 10 days...) Sigh. So much for a productive holiday weekend. I guess I'll have to catch up on my reading and non-active things.

Happy Sunday everyone!
I have been wearing the same perfume at least 4 days in a row (!) - TDC Charmes et Feuilles. Somehow I craved jasmine, but didn't want the full, lusty heaviness of it - and in this perfume the herbs create such a fresh canvas for the flowers... anyway. It's been just right somehow.
I'm super, SUPER busy at work. (We're launching a lot of perfumes this year. I am probably allowed to leak that much. And Mark and Simon are currently deciding whether one of them might be mine. I am trying not to hope. They've got a sample in their lab and Mark did say something about maybe bringing it out. It's just that I wasn't expecting it at the time and just froze. It's a tuberose/osmanthus/mandarin concoction that I have grown rather fond of).
Oh Nukapai... that's wonderful!
actiasluna, sorry about your back and hope it heals up quickly! I've had my share of back troubles and am finally almost back to normal from a sprain I experienced almost two weeks ago!
Now I know I'm beginning to sound like a broken record, but it's still overcast, and gloomy with a stong possibility of rain (quel suprise!). So, I'm choosing to bring in spring/summer (within the realm of my psyche anyway) by swathing myself in Chanel's...
Have a great day!

My Scent of the Evening is Fleur du Male ... I can't seem to get
used to this frag, it's my third wear, but it still smells like pee to
me ... actual human pis!
Rtamara, thank you for your insightful comment about the clarity of Ava Luxe scents. Just last night I was trying to put my finger on just why so many of her scents are among my favorites. I think it is just that -- the clarity of her work.
Actiasluna, feel better soon.
I haven't chosen a scent for today, but of course now all I want is to wear one of my Ava Luxe scents! Take care, all.
Thanks for the advice, and it seems that my body is gonna keep me out of the garden for a while, guess I didn't listen to it until it started shrieking. (change of avatar embodying my apparent wannabe-but-not-doing-well-as-peasant-woman status.)
SOTA - hmm... Montale Black Aoud for comfort.
If it's Sunday, it's Eau Premiere.
Actiasluna, I do hope your back will be better soon. Take care of yourself.
Have a good Sunday, everyone!
I was wearing Venice by Yves Rocher all day today!!!Oh ,it's a wonderful lasting floriental that so sadly discontinued ...

After that, Ray and I spent the whole day at a water park, riding the slides and splashing around with tons of kids in the pool. Tonight, I'm headed to a dance party probably wearing...
Vetiver Extreme by Guerlain
I've been wearing L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger today. It got me thorugh the tedium of the annual family picnic of hubby's side of the family. (I am not a fan of these picnics.)
My daughter got very sunburned & requested an early pick up from her friends house at the shore. So I spent the day driving up and down the Garden State Parkway. Going home was fun, we chit chatted the entire time.
I began the day wearing Alien, parfum de liqueur and have ended it wearing Jo Malone's Black Vetyver Cafe, layered with Annick Goutal Eau d' Hadrien edp.
Heads up Black Vetyver Cafe is being discontinued, according to a SA at SAKS. (Quarry, I know you like this one. Therese, you are wearing it today too, I see.)

Happy long weekend!
Yesterday I wore Bel Respiro (I absolutely love this one). I am grateful for decants, because I cannot bring myself to buy the huge bottle the Exclusifs come in. I guess I have spent more than what BR cost in decants in the last six months, but I really don't need a huge bottle of anything.
Today I wore Fidji, from the late 80s, maybe early 90s.

SotE Miller Harris Tangerine Vert. This is reminding me of Eau d'Hadrian.
No SOTD due to I stayed in all day doing some chores. However, I had a '1st date' with a very nice guy this evening and my SOTE for the date was JPG Classique. I hope he liked it.
