    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..."

    Cat got me up early. Rubbed on some old violet cream sachet from Avon (still good, though dried to a paste) and am crawling back to bed for a few more ZZZZs.

    Afternoon all,

    I'm sampling Thierry Mugler's Womanity which I received yesterday from a dear friend in the UK. The name kills me, I think it's hideous, but the juice is not so hideous.

    Haven't seen a list of notes yet, but I get a lot of rich greens. Fresh tobacco? My husband smelled me and he thought I'd been smoking! The tobacco is really quite sweet and it reminds me more of really fresh pipe tobacco than anything else. I find myself sniffing my wrists all the time and that's not a bad thing. As always with Mugler, the sillage and lasting power is excellent.

    Good morning/day/evening all!

    I'm wearing the very pretty Guerlain L'Instant this morning. This scent reminds me of Evangeline (who loves it so)...Hi Evangeline (waves a neighborly howdy across the miles)!

    Hello everyone!

    Oh my stars Miss pomander, you made my day! And you smell soooo beautiful! I'll be thinking of y'all this weekend, and I can't wait to read all about it! I'd have considered joining the fun (I used to live in Boston and jump at every chance to visit) but I'll be in New Orleans for important wedding planning business...hee! Please give my regards to Back Bay, and remember me to Harvard Square! Have a wonderful time!

    I'm in Chamade today, vintage pdt and edc.





    Y'all have a fantastic day!

    Thanks cello! It really won't be too stressful because we're keeping it very simple - we're actually "planning" to elope, but we want to include some family and friends (we're not very conventional - it seems we're breaking all the rules of both weddings and elopements - ha!) so there aren't too many details to worry about. Food, music and food will get the most attention - the rest is lagniappe.
    Good luck with kitty and vet - I hope everything goes well!

    Coconut - I love So Pretty! Do you have the edt or the edp? They're both becoming harder to find now but I've never sniffed the edt, so I'm wondering if I should consider it when stocking up.

    New York Tribune, February 18, 1917
    Mrs Jerome Bonaparte is hiding her bathing suit with a beach coat, but it is such a good looking coat we shall forgive her.
    And we don't blame her, either, for shielding her face with a parasol that matches the coat, for the sun, they tell us, is very ardent in its attentions at Palm Beach.

    The temperature has spiked again, so out comes the Hermès Un Jardin Après Le Mousson. Predictable, but I hope that, like Mrs Jerome Bonaparte, I am forgiven. As is mel lou..

    Credibility pffft! Katie Puckrik says it's rather like By Kilian Love, without the terrifying pricetag. Did you score your big backup bottle?

    Lilybelle, I hope you got some one on one time with your sewing machine. I feel rather silly (and a little uncomfortable) in this heat with my swathes of polar fleece plotting ways to keep my knees warm this winter!

    It smells divine in here!

    I wore Parfums de Coeur's Body Fantasy White Musk body spray this morning...I had a dental appointment and didn't want to suffocate anyone. The news was good, thank goodness. Only a root canal. Woo hoo! I never thought I'd be glad of a root canal, but the alternative was really depressing. Now I'm back home celebrating in some Chanel No. 5 edt. Sharing the house with Mims, poor baby! I hope you feel better soon!
