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 grief, i'm still up and it's a work day tomorrow.
I'm sampling Blanc by ST Dupont. Mmmm I think it's a little too straight up floral for me. We'll see.
Domperrier- stop, you're making me hungry!
You royal highness- you smell divine in Dior, as usual
Everyone have a great day.

A dense, caramel combined with smokey wood,
leaves me in a cozy 'Afterglow'
as in the name of the painting here.
Autumn creeps ever closer.
The nights are blissfully cool and a warm scent

SotE is L'ombre dans l'eau.
Dragonfly Blue Ceylon Truffle
L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger to cool me off on this hot, humid day.
Everyone smelling tasty today!
Kumquat, waxing poetic as usual
Mitsouko this morning. Last eve I tested Solange Cosmic from a sample. Pretty good, but the price makes it not very tempting for me. It is one of those "all over the place" frags.
Bossa Nove - have a truly special day!
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
Happy birthday, BossaNova!
Hope your day is fantastic!
Terry, that L'Artisan smells fab on you. I know for personal experience, luv.
Kilawia, I was "just" looking at that Laura Mercier yesterday & decided it was my favorite fo her fragrances.
Jon Rogers, you are wearing (SOTD) one of my favorite Jo Malone fragrances.
It is hot here today & the morning was muggy, so I opted for my fallback in the heat, Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte. I've been wearing the heck out of it all summer.
Happy Wednesday Everybody!

"What's a cat?"
Bella - Who doesn't know she's not a person who poops in a box.
Guerlain's Guet-Apens - if you can olfactorily envision an amalgam of Mitsouko's spicy peach-jasmine-oakmoss harmony and the baroque and burning sandalwood-amber of Samsara, you get the feel of just how wonderful it smells.
Chanel No. 19
Have a great day, all!
