It's a Rive Gauche kind of morning here.
I have to take my youngest son to the train station
as he sets of round europe on a two-week inter-rail
trip. After his Gap Year round the world in 2008, this will be a
doddle! Hopefully after this he will settle down and finish his
final year at Uni. He's a Sagittarius - what did I expect!!
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

It is raining like cats and dogs over here...
wearing Sofia Detaille Perfume
In memory of Robert White, and in celebration of my 11 year wedding anniversary today, I'm wearing Derby from the Les Parisiennes line.
Have a great day Mr and Mrs Dimitriadis !.

Happy Anniversary Dimitri!
I'm in Black Aoud today. I had one of those "Cant Decide What to Wear" days and ended up picking BA at random. Anyone else have days like this?

Reformulation without information is fraud. Call the police.
Awwwww! Thanks you guys!!
My gorgeous lady (who happens to be a fabulous baker!) just pulled some profiteroles out of the oven a few hours ago! You're all invited to feast on them!
In a slump today. Too much family drama recently.
But I'm brightening my mood with CDG Series 2 Red Carnation from a sample and trying to decide whether to buy a FB.

"Three essentials for a good life: Someone to love, somewhere to go, and something to look forward to."
Happy anniversary, Mr & Mrs Dimi! Profiteroles, how divine! Here's something to go with:
Guerlain Tonka Imperiale. A beautiful fragrance, I love the aromatic notes that balance and "rough up" the sweetness of tonka bean.
Notes: bergamot, bitter almond, rosemary, jasmine, tonka, tobacco, incense, cedar, pine
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
Guerlain's Eau de Shalimar, officially Mathilde Laurent's Shalimar Light unaltered under a new name but in reality a deconstructed formula of dusty orangy vanilla, a shoddy trick to connoisseurs yet as immediately toothsome as the crème anglaise that Earnest Beaux once so belittled. I can't but love it.

Lalique pour Homme Equus this morning

"Are you a wizard?"
"Are you a man?"
"Then what are you?"
"I am awake.."
Happy Anni to Dimi and Mira and many more years together, sharing and inspiring!
It is Jacques Fath's Birthday (9/12/1912), please mark your calendars if things like this are of interest. He was one of the Trinity, to quote myself.
Mauboussin Emotion Divine today for the AM.
Happy anniversary to Mira, artist & baker extrordinaire, and to our dear Dimitri. MWAH! to both of you.
SOTD is a sentimental favorite (which I'm afraid I tend to hoard), Caron Fleurs de Rocaille parfum. A gift from a divine basenoter who knew I regretted swapping mine away.

Happy anniversary Dimi & bride
I envy your son his experiences, kewart. My daughter's been traveling in circles, so to speak. Please excuse my boastfulness:
That's right — 40 miles!
Candy Perfume Boy, yes, can relate big time.
30 Roses, would whisk you away to Fantasy Island for a break if I could.
Bigarade Concentree for me.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Happy Anniversary Wishes to Dear Mira and Dimitri - many many more to come !
Scent of the morning is Mitsouko .
For sale. Carnal Flower and Vero Profumo Onda.
Happy Anniversary, Dimitri and Mira!
((hug)) to 30 Roses. Family dramas are so draining.
I’m wearing No. 5 Eau Première. Ernest Beaux must be rolling in his grave, Mr. G, because I smell a bit like citrus tinged crème anglais today, too. ♥
Thank you again for all the b’day wishes yesterday. I didn’t get my way, we went to the restaurant. I feel tired and hung over this morning, but I only had one glass of Prosecco and one glass of red wine the whole evening. My capacity is shot.
Sotd is L'heure bleue edp. This has been my sotd the last couple of days since I brought it with me on the weekend in Oslo. A friend I've known since I was ...5 got married,so decided I defenitely needed to be there! Other good news is that I can finally move into an apartment on my own. Been living with my dad the last three months,so it's gonna be good to have some time alone too now. I even got my nr 1 choice studenthousing! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to Dimitri and Mira! Hope you have a fantastic day!
My scent of the day, were it an ELDO, would be something like "Filthy Gardener" or if a Demeter would be "Rot in the September Garden"... as I rushed this morning to beat the rain to pull up some spent cucumber vines and clear out some exasperatingly persistent grass. I stink, but weirdly in a good way. I believe that I am either truly mad, or have come to appreciate scent in a way I never did before I discovered Basenotes!
After a shower, I think I'll don something fitting for a damp and warm September day...hmm...hmm...will get back to you on this!
And congrats to Dimi and Mira, happy anniversary!
Good to hear that you are getting your own place, Ineespenes!
SotE is Opium.
It's a HOT one outside and we're going to an outdoor food/arts festival near Downtown Miami...so I decided to reach for this one even though I rarely wear it in Summer. Let's see how it goes:
