    love everyone's images....today I am in Bandit parfum, and Kat Von D's Hellbent lipstick - I think they are a good pair
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Today's perfect fall day cried out for SL Mandarine Mandarin. I happily complied.

    Wow! Below freezing at the beginning of October? Yikes! :-(

    Thanks for the laugh, L. You tell 'em! :-)

    I'm carrying on with the SnS amber theme with my favorite of all ambers, MPG Ambre Precieux. Just delicious!

    It is Christmas. It is dark and cold outside, and the day has been long. Inside, the fire flickers and the lamplit room is like a cocoon. I am curled up in a cosy chair. I have a glass of red wine beside me as I reach out to the box of dark chocolate liquers.

    For the first cool day of fall, I'm wearing my beloved Omnia (the original one in the brown bottle). I love this stuff.

    Switching to Vanillary by Gorilla Perfumes for the evening. It has notes of Vanilla, Jasmine and Tonka. Gorilla Perfumes has several really nice scents, but this is probably my favorite so far.

    I'm wearing Creed Ambre Cannelle today. I like it, but I'm a little confused by what I'm smelling. Reading the reviews here on BN is no help ... is it amber OR ambergris that I'm smelling underneath all the cinnamon??

    An update to my post regarding Noir De Noir:

    Almost two hours after application, the chocolate liquer effect has gone, What is left is much nicer and allows a hint of oud wood to come through.

    I'll try this again tomorrow.

    Shades, I think AC has ambergris.

    SotE - Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose, for old times' sake. It's very big and floral, but simple. When I was young my bedroom reeked of this...it really lingers after you spray it. It seems a little boring and one dimensional now, but I still like it. It's great for layering, but I don't suppose I'd choose this for myself now. It's just a nostalgia item.

    I was out and about (on "the lake" bobbing about on a pontoon boat, fishing or pretending to fish as they weren't biting) today as a last-minute invite from my sister took me away from the garden for a few hours. I was in the mood for Montale Black Aoud and it worked nicely in the slightly cloudy, windy fall weather, with a slight nip to the wind. At the last minute before I left for the lake, I got cheeky and layered a little Bulgari Black over it, which made a lovely leather note rise over the woody, musky, rosy Oudy BA.

    Hey y'all -

    I'm in a creamy dreamy cloud of magnolias and honey this evening - L'Instant edp.

    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

    Today I wore 31, rue Cambon. Tonight I'll wear Eau Premiere.

    Sweet dreams.

    SotE is SL Arabie -- a fabulous transition from Mandarine Mandarin. I hope everyone's weekend has been lovely!
