Wishlist is pointless.
I have insomnia so.... up late/early !
Wearing Tuberose Gardenia by Estee Lauder !
I had hoped to get some sleep after our NYC trip, but my daughter ate something that didn't agree with her and was up for hours contemplating the toilet.
Of course I had to stay up with her, and this gave me the time to write a blog post about our day, which included visits to Aedes, Bigelow and Enfleurage:
Now that she is finally in bed, I'm going to get some shut eye as well!
Happy Saturday to Everybody

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..."

Good Morning All. SOTD is La Maison's 'Vanille de Tropiques'
Candy Perfume Boy, I dying to know what you really think of the Gorilla Perfumes? Thanks.
Good Morning My scent of the day is
Habanita by Molinard
Cigarette & Roses a bit of Wiskey and a
touch of Incense Bring this into an
Elegant Testament Which i find amusing
Picturing a smoke filled dark Cabaret;
A Male Impersonator ala Marlene Dietrich
Julie Andrews in Victor and Victoria
it's a sensuality to a Sexualy Repressed Convent School Educated girl Like
Madchen in Uniform like Senerio then
*Wenn ich mir was wunschen durft*.
at the end of the song she leans over
and slowly kisses the girl and this was a sexual Awaking for this Schoolgirl.
Picturing David Bowie in his
Berlin years Eleganly Dressed with a cigerette on his hand and a pint of wiskey on the other. in the Movie just a Gigolo. The darkly Oud i can dechphier
in this perfume like the deadly Sexuality of Rudolph Valentino and Pola Negri sizzling on the screen to a bewildered Movie Goers. Japanese Silent movie Star Sessue Hayakawa Seducing
the wife of a British Admiral.
The powdery rose brings you to mind
Opera of the Last Diva.
the Bottle is very Beautiful Greek
Nymphs Engraved in a Opaque Bottle
very ideal for home decoration when the bottle is empty Leather makes it Dangerous.
I'm in one of my all-time favorite scents of the '80s, the amazing K de Krizia...this always take me back.
Y'all have a great day!
Oud 27 - Le Labo
Tip your head back and drink in the glorious
waves of vanilla & stryax that
make this a tasty gourmet scent.
Golden is the color that fills my head and
a sweet warmth is in my mouth.
This perfume is making me thirsty!
Launched in 1989.
Top notes are coriander, fir resin,
bergamot, geranium and lemon;
middle notes are labdanum,
patchouli and styrax;
base notes are amber, opoponax,
musk and vanilla.

I'm wearing Prada Infusion d'Iris on this rare working Saturday morning. It's grey, gloomy and rainy here. I feel clean and crisp in this, love it.
Busy day today; work this morning, get home and get ready for a family wedding this afternoon. Going to wear MDCI Promesse de l'Abue. Wonder what the bride's frag will be ?
Mimi G - mucho empathy for your insomnia!
Kumquat - to quote Shadesofbleu, Etro Ambra "whispers" amber.
Great weekend to ya'll!
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
You all smell so good, and what great pics!
I've been house cleaning and getting ready for guests' (in-laws) arrival this evening. It's tiring, but I want everything done so I can enjoy them once they get here. Estee Lauder Pleasures Delight is keeping my spirits up for now.
Have a good weekend!
Another Caron for me today, the exquisite Farnesiana extrait.
Enjoy the day, all!

I was in Hypnotic Poison Elixir.
Inspired by VM I hate civet's perfumista profile (on the gorilla site) I am wearing Dark Amber and Ginger Lily by Jo Malone. Mmmm. I haven't worn it in quite a while. A treasure.

Inspired vaguely by the Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky film I went to see last night.

Doing the Bandit thing today, as I need more OOMPH! (and it's working.) Garden has gotten full of johnson grass (which is annoying as it sounds)... I need to rethink for next year! (smaller, wider garden, different number of plants...etc.)... but now off to clean my house!
