    Today my company is participating in the local LGBT Pride festivities. So I will be walking in the Pride Parade with some of my fellow co-workers, and will be wearing Yves Saint Laurent - Kouros Cologne Sport.

    Happy Pride!

    Good morning everyone. Yesterday I wasn't up for wearing any scents. Had to take a shot of Cortison in my eye. Now I look really freaky! The last few days has been quite hard emotionally. The ex bf has been very helpful with the packing and reorganizing mine and his stuff.Now I just hope i get a new place to stay soon. It's very nice of my dad to let me stay here as long as I like free....However...I'm 30 years old....so it's not ideal. Sotd is Bois d'iris.

    Guerlain L'Heure Bleue. I know it's a sad or melancholic fragrance for many. I associate it more with a feeling of well-being and calmness. It's soothing; such a cool, quiet beauty.

    Have a lovely day, all!

    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.

    Today my DH and I have been married for 22 years - I awoke to a bouquet of 22 multicolored roses on the bedside table... I am one lucky person. My SoTD is one of my husband's favorites Scherrer 2. It's one of my favorites, too! Hard to go wrong with tuberose, honey and sweet spice in my opinion.

    Scherrer 2 notes: Bergamot, pineapple, anise, jasmine, tuberose, honey, vanilla, sandal, heliotrope, benzoin.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin...

    May your rose count increase forever, Comdiva dear.


    RHM, you sound like such a fun mom, what with the gem hunting. And 30Roses, you're a darling daughter for taking your mom to the zoo.
    Inees, our daughter turns 31 soon, and we couldn't be happier to have her back home. Enjoy Dad's nest if it suits you.
    Heartwood, you're fantastic. On top of everything else you dealt with yesterday, you made a point of recycling shopping bags.

    I've been nursing a sample of Lucy B's Pink Frangipani forever (did I get this from Taolady?). The juice has a sweet flower-and-pineapple quality that sometimes just hits the spot. There's an Anthropologie store less than two blocks from our local Amtrak station, and I'm starting to think I might make a frag purchase before I even get on the train to the Basenotes annual meet-up. Wait, here's plan: a frag purchase for each major city on the route: Milwaukee, Boston, Chicago.

    P.S.
    Petruccijc, I'm glad we live in an era of pride and look forward to the day when all diversity is nurtured and appreciated.

    ((inees)) Life has its seasons. Both my husband and I lived home with parents for a season while transitioning; I was 34 and he was in his early 40s when we needed to do that. So, it happens, but it isn't forever. And your Dad will appreciate your help with household chores while you are there.

    I have to go to a baby shower today and am scrambling with last minute things. No fragrance on me yet but I think I'll wear Yardley English Rose.

    Happy 22nd Anniversary to ComDiva Darling and her sweet husband...Wow, what a romantic guy Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

    Inees - you'll get through this and come out happier in the end. We're all pulling for you!

    I've dedicated the first half of today to scent. I started with putting on my scent of the morning, Rose Barbare, and then I straightened up my perfume colllection:
    Top shelf, left: Florals - sweet and deep
    Top shelf, right: Lighter Florals to Citrus's
    Bottom shelf, left: Chypres (!)
    Bottom shelf, right: Orientals
    Oh, look at them all, so many shining bottles and colorful boxes. What a beautiful sight to behold!

    After that I decided to "spot wear" a few different scents I hadn't worn for awhile (re-aquainting mode): Les Nuits d'Hadrien, Dzing, Carnal Flower.

    All in all, a wonderful morning. Have a great Saturday all.

    (I'm not just posting this cuz I'm on a kind of Pomander streak right now.) Wow, what a splendiferous way to spend a Saturday morning. I can totally relate to the pleasure of revisiting favorite frags, organizing (one of Q's top five fave things to do), and beholding. Fa-la-la-la-lah fun.

    The pics make me smile today. Breathtaking frangipani, adorably wicked looking bal lady, rainbow flags, flowers, cupcakes. It's always nice to stop by the SotD thread.

    I'm wearing Grès Cabaret today. This was a happy discovery for me, and it works well in this awful heat, too.

    I seem to still be in my scent rut. I think it is the heat, really. I just don't wake up with an urgent need to spray, or to put much time into thinking about what I want to spray. So I am going with Chanel CdR again. And why not, anyway? It is marvelous.

    Take care, all.

    The photos and posts are making me smile today.
    Currently scentless, and spent an extremely lazy morning, now have to prep to attend a nice young co-workers wedding and reception. I think I'm going to spend more time picking the scent than the outfit. What FUN!
    Leaning towards: Escale a Pondicherry, Miss Arpels, or Royal Bain de Champagne.

    Edited later to add- final choice was Cinema by YSL

    Congratulations to ComDiva and her sweetheart!

    We've been cleaning today, taking bags of clothes to Goodwill. (We've gotten two more bags of shoes she's outgrown. i.e. A pair of Doc Martins she never even wore!) The girl is on a major organization streak & asked to go to the Container Store to get some bins.

    I put Rosine's limited edition Une Rose au Bord de la Mer on this morning. Later I found Estee Lauder's Pure White Linen Pink Coral, which has been discontinued. I like it for summer, such a pretty peony, so it's my SOTE. These are the notes for Pure White Linen Pink Coral from the basenotes fragrance directory. "Top Notes Apple Blossom, Clear Aldehydes, Waterfruits, Pink Peppercorns, Chinese Berry Mist.
    Middle Notes Jasmine, Pink Peony, Camellia Flower, Cherry Blossom, Sweet Pea, Honeysuckle.
    Base Notes Vanilla, Heliotrope, Sandalwood."



    Have a wonderful evening.
