    Everyone smelling just lovely today!

    AG Heure Exquise for me. Bedtime last night: Missoni Acqua.

    Looks like I'm going to SF in September with my daughter to visit a couple of days with my son, who has lived there several years now. I would love to go to the SF BN meet up, but we will only be there 2 full days, alas.

    (((Mountainear))), sending you a hug. I'm so sorry for your loss. Very sad.

    Kumquat, I've been meaning to tell you this for ages...your pics on the SotD thread never fail to take my breath away. They are matched only by your prose (or is it poetry?). Prosetry. Poesie. Anyway, I know I'm not the only one here who enjoys them.

    Adding (I forgot why I was here, it's getting worse, too!): I started craving a peppery fragrance this afternoon. I've never liked pepper in fragrances before, and now I'm craving one. So I pulled out this sample of Ca Luna by Acqua di Biella that a Basenoter sent me ages ago. And it's quite nice, but not really peppery enough. I'm telling this because you should never say never. Never say you don't like any genre of fragrance because one day you'll be like me, standing in front of the closet having forgotten what you're doing there, and then when you remember you'll figure out that you're craving something you thought for years you disliked.

    I'm a Guerlain lemming today - it's Mitsouko at work, and more greens/Houbigants to test tonight.

    Sophi, congratulations on having raised your son for another year! It's nice to spend a little time contemplating all the sweet memories up to this point. Can you believe he was once a tiny newborn? Boggles the mind, huh.

    Mountainear, my sympathies on the loss of your friend.

    Everyone else, I hope you have a pleasant and fragrant day.

    Lol! So true! And thank you for understanding, Coopmom. I've been wondering lately whether I should retire from posting on public fora. Folks at home have no choice, they're stuck with me.

    Happy Birthday to your son, sophi!

    Mountainear, I am so sorry to hear about your friend...

    It is so hard for me to wake up in the morning and go to the office in this heat...
    So today I thought it would be nice to wear something very strong and beautiful to keep my awake, despite the heat. Unfortunatelly I was afraid it would be too strong to wear in the metro and I didn't put enough...

    Well, I think you are right sweetie, the BK is definitely the winner when it comes to longevity but honestly I didn't like it as much as the Tribute. It starts out nice, but ends very...shimmery and not in a good way IMO. Oh well...one more luxury fragrance I don't have to fall in love with. Sort of happy about that, you know.

    I'm in the "dog days' doldrums" (when is the "dog days" anyway?... but whatever) and kinda quiet recently. That said my SOTD was Pavlova, followed by a respritz midafternoon of Turbulences... and the SoTE is Coriolan. *one of those mixed up days!*

    mountainear, how very sad-- I'm sorry you have lost your friend. It's a jolt when someone so young dies.

    I've been C Roses' twin today in L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger.

    This afternoon I took my DD to the mall to find school clothes. While she tried on clothes, I sampled the newest Pacifica at Sephora, California Star Jasmine (fruity and sweet, no jasmine that I could detect) and Coach Poppy (pleasant top notes which soon gave way to a very ordinary vanilla).

    Days like this, I'm all the happier for what I have at home!

    I'm mortified for you that you would receive this news mountainear. Life is too harsh sometimes. I hope you have lots of support from your friends and family but if you don't I'm sure there are many here who would offer you an ear/shoulder. Myself included.

    Today I wore the essence of united colors of benetton woman ,which to me smells something like dried apricots and soft woodsyness (patchouli or tarragon?)nice for at work inoffensive even to those with allergy issues.
    Tonight I wanted to try something different .....................
    something new to my nose (or at least the concentration was new)




    so scent of the evening is........................POISON parfum
    I wasn't sure I would like this . Ihadtried Poison before probably edt and it was a thrift buy before it may/probably had gone off so I released it at work.
    Now trying the parfum (especially after finding room in my heart for opium,midnight fantasy,hot couture and Fracas) I (sniff) ....(sniff sniff sniffsniffsniff)think (sniffsniffsniiiiiiiff)that I like -no make that love this too.
    Mimi and Ducky and Ubu you have yourselves a convert to Poison.
    Y'all should be both proud and heartily ashamedof yourselves!
    Proud for converting another to the Poison fold .Ashamed 'cause hunting the parfum of this is going to do HORRIBLEthings to my bank account !
