    Happy weekend and YSL synchro day all!

    Twolf and Quarry You are too funny LOL. But now that you mention her foot size, I bet there is evidence somewhere supporting that greater foot size is linked to greater brain power (says she of the size 10 US (41/42 EU) feet).

    Wore Yvresse to bed last night. This morning, seeing as my other choices (the most fabulous Nu, YSL, and Cinema) are well represented, I'm wearing In Love Again Edition Jasmin Etoile. which features- you guessed it- star jasmine.

    I must agree with TWolf, the models feet are 'drag queen size' no?

    Hi folks,

    I'm afraid I won't be in YSL today because it's my birthday!!!!!!

    (let my shameless birthday wish trolling begin!)

    I'm heading into the city to find myself a birthday present. If the Fougere Royale re-release is in, I'll probably get that. Otherwise, I think there may be a bottle of the new Guerlain Dandy with my name on it...

    I'll try on something along the way, of course.
    Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??

    I am unsynchronized today -- no YSL (although I may run out and buy some Ysatis)....

    So I am in Boxeuses again today. Lovely juice.

    Yes, it's lovely. Several hours later it has become more mellow, with a little more of the woods coming through. And odd as it may sound, it smells almost clean. Clean and warm, kind of like a cotton shirt fresh and still warm from the dryer. You mention loving all YSLs except Paris, and include Opium among them. Based on that, I think there's a chance you'd like this. I'd stick with the edp though, I've heard the edt isn't as nice.

    OH! Rogalal - a very happy birthday to you, enjoy!!

    Happy Birthday Rogalal! Plus Happy Belated Birthday wishes to dear Haunani! I hope the next year brings many good things to you both!

    Been one of those weeks....so busy! Happy that I made it to Friday, even if with a headache (sigh).

    Yesterday's scent: No. 19 parfum (new formulation)
    Last night: a lot of samples ...Une Rose Vermeille on the wrists, Memoir Woman on the upper arms, Rubj EDP on the right knee, and Absolue Pour le Soir on the left knee. (DH had a good laugh!)
    This morning, pre-shower: Absolue Pour le Matin.

    Today is YSL Day! Yeah! Post-shower, I'll pick one...probably either Y or Rive Gauche. Maybe Paris. Maybe I'll use those knees again and wear all three (LOL)

    Hugs to all....

    I'm in Diabolo Rose and hubby is in the rather-similar-smelling Geranium Pour Monsieur today.

    Happy Birthday Rogalal !


    My SOTD is a no-brainer as it's the only Yves I have! Here are my beauties...





    And on the subject of feet... I recall from life drawing classes that a person's foot is the same length as their forearm. (now I'm picturing the contortions as y'all check this out! ... yup, mine is!)

    Oh rogalal, Happy Birthday! Now you need some delicious cake - I hope you don't mind pecans! (Sorry, I just couldn't wait and I helped myself to a big ol' slice.)



    Paris is gone now, so I'll be out of sync for the afternoon with K de Krizia.
    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

    Happy Birthday to Rogalal!!!!

    I didn't even notice she had feet! Right now I'm wearing Iris Pallida by L'Artisan. Will be spritzing on some Opium before bed - hoping to end up like the Opium ad model - big feet or not!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROGALAL!
    Hope you'll find/get a bunch of gifts, here!


    I'm not in sync today. I was going to wear my Yvresse, the last drops of a mini parfum bottle, but I ended up in a sampling mode, so I have two Carons on: Aimez-Moi on my right arm (finally! a violet I can do!) and Montaigne on my left arm (hummm... this one intrigues me very much!)

    And oh my, if I understand correctly what a forearm is, mine are just as out of sync as I am with the YSL day! Much longer than my feet!

    Birthday wishes for Haunani and Rogalal!

    I'm fighting off the creeping crud that is felling my students one by one, and trying to sniff my spritzing of Rive Gauche, to little avail. At least I know others will be able to enjoy it. Take care, all.

    I forgot it was YSL day and wore Lovely instead. Doh! But if I'd remembered, I'd have worn Y, because I love it. Tomorrow! Or maybe Paris, not sure.
