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..."

Happy Saturday Everybody

" I think part of my success as an editor came from never worrying about a fact, a cause, an atmosphere. It was me—projecting to the public. That was my job. I think I always had a perfectly clear view of what was possible for the public. Give 'em what they never knew they wanted." DiANA VREELAND

"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
Feeling a cold coming on :-( Worst part is that I can't take anything to suppress the symptoms (sometimes being pregnant is eeeextra tricky). Anyway, I'll be in Feminite du Bois to start the day, then Acqua di Biella Kid Mohair for a birthday party tonight.
Have a great day!

Good morning everyone!
It sure smells good in here! I'm in Sisley's Eau du Soir today.
domperrier - that's one bodacious combination! Are you enjoying the effect? But I'm confused about your Gucci Eau de Parfum - wasn't that just launched in 2002?
Y'all have a great day!
Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan
Hello all. Chamade edp.
Flying to Japan today...

I'm trying some Rykiel Woman on my wrists. It's too much for me. I think it's the leather that's making me a little queasy. I'm a wimp. Must wash it off soon.
Furriner - have a good trip! Safe journey!

Backwards in time,
I dream of spring again.
Cool breaths of watermelon
tease lilacs out to play.
The wind moves gently as
the robins feed on juicy bugs.
There is little time before the snow,
yet the glorious sweetness lingers.
Notes: hyacinth, white lilac,
watermelon, musk, cedar, moss

SotE : Jo Malone's Nectarine Blossom & Honey.
Hope you all having a great weekend
It's summer again here in the Boston area. 80-something today. Despite the heat, I'm spending the day cooking. I'm wearing 31, rue Cambon, which is blooming on my warm skin in such a beautiful way....the fruity/iris/patchouli notes are just stunning!
"You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future."
"Three essentials for a good life: Someone to love, somewhere to go, and something to look forward to."
My old favorite, Muguet des Bois today, from an older bottle.
So many wonderfully scented folks today! For my part, I am in Rochas Femme. I almost never wear it, because I have only a miniature of it, but it seemed just the right choice for today. Take care, all.
Happy week-end everybody!! My SOTD is Chanel's 'ALLURE'
