I'm seeing in the new day still at my computer, and still wearing my aromatherapy type pendant sprayed with Penhaligon's Bluebell. I sprayed it 12 hours ago and it's going strong.
Happy Saturday Everybody

Hello all. Wearing Chergui today.
Have a great weekend everyone !.
Good morning. Very cold October Saturday here.
I'm still in my project "finnishing the J'adore bottle".
Good morning everyone! The dogs and I are participating in the SPCA Pet Walk this morning. My SOTD is Yves Saint Laurent - Kouros Fraicheur and theirs is Oh My Dog!. Have a great day!

L'Heure Bleue for me today.
Going to a matinée performance of Rigoletto at the opera in an hour or so, in Habanita.
I'm up way to early this morning because of a naughty, naughty little girl kitty! I can't believe people ever deliberately get up this early - I had forgotten that there's a 5:00 in the a.m., too! But at least this gives me the opportunity to get another fragrance into my day. My scent of the wee small hours of the morning (also known, of course, as sotwshotm) is L'Or de Torrente.
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
I woke with a fierce craving for Angel, so Angel it is today.
Enjoy the day, all!

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..."
Clarice Lispector ( 1920-1977) - Perfumes da Terra / Earth Perfumes
Having missed skanky friday, I am now in the whip cracking Tabac Blond...got some work to do today and this will help me get it done with a bit of fun
"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
Happy Saturday everyone! It's a perfect fall day here in Minnesota,
sunny with bright blue skies, I just love this time of year.
My SotD is Sublime by Jean Patou.
"I love that a scent can make memories come alive."
I'm thinking about...breaking into the samples I figured out I've somehow lost labels for (or rubbed off out of stupidly not taping over the sharpie name) and having a little detective-like fun. Yesterday's mystery which turned out to be Fumerie Turque got me wondering how many others I've done that to! So... going to rummage in samples, will be back with SOMETHING SMELLY-GOOD on!
Back, with Coromandel on one hand (no mistaking the sweet vanilla-patchouli-incense-airiness in this one!) and what I believe is a teensy bit of vintage Poison (one from our dear Duck...er..Le Grand Duc) on the other. Smelly good is right! And the new Poison smells like bug spray mixed with grape Koolaid by comparison.

Happy Saturday everyone! it's a beautiful crisp fall day here and I'm in the mood for Coco and nothing else will do today.
Happiness is a summer breeze, sand between your toes, and your family by your side.
Viktor & Rolfe Antidote this glorious morning!
Things are things because of Mind--Zen Buddhist saying
Petruccijc, enjoy your walk and your nice smelling doggies - and you smell pretty darn good yourself! What a wonderful cause.
Ms E, you may be able to fit in a third fragrance today, known as Sotnt (scent of the nap time)!
I'm off to turn in my leased car, having already gone through the dreaded and painful buying of the new car. Actually, it wasn't really that painful, which just means that I paid too much
My scent today is Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale, which I have been loving this time of year. Cinnamon!!! Wheeeee!
Still skanky -- layering rubbery Bulgari Black with Lucy B Pink Frangipani to approximate yesterday's VIP Room.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Today's current scent is Un Bois Vanille, so that I'll have something lovely and comforting to smell every 3 minutes when I cough into my elbow.
If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.
I hate missing Fridays here - rarely on the computer then as I'm at home or doing errands. I do so adore skank!
Catching up on wearing ambers this weekend. Today is Ambre Russe, stolen from my hubby's cache.
Evangeline, my kitty is banished at night to the utility room, as she has a tendency to curl up on my head in the middle of the night. I love her, but geez...
Have a beautiful weekend!
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
I'm wearing the delicious Habanita today. I recently sold some of my wardrobe and used a little of the cash to acquire this and Imperial Opoponax. I don't regret it at all. My wardrobe was full of scents I'd acquired from others but hadn't chosen, or had chosen back when I was too new at perfumes to really know what I liked. Habanita is so me it's unreal!
Next stop, Keiko Mecheri's Mulholland! Should manage that with another sale next month. Or, I might save it for a Jalaine. Who knows!
Hope you're all well! xxx I missed the forum this week - laid out with flu. No point wearing perfumes when you can't smell anything. Thank heavens things are back to normal today!
Floating on my favourite concoction - Penhaligon's Lily & Spice with an unbranded Lily Flower attar. The Lily & Spice is just too smooth and well behaved sometimes, and the attar adds a touch of obnoxiously enjoyable fleshy wintergreen back in.
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
Joining Petra Ichor in lily today...Donna Karan Gold edp for me today. I get a lot of acacia in it as well. It smells very rich and sweet, with a touch of bitterness at the heart. It is so very well done, this fragrance. I love it, though I seldom wear it. I suppose the weather is right now. It has turned cooler though still golden with sunshine. My favorite kind of day!

Nice to see lots of Habanita out there this past week!
Just got back from shopping for clothes (in a ... cough... little bigger size. Gotta love middle-age)... and I made the "mistake" of wandering by the perfume counters... ended up with the 'lemming' from last week, Chanel Platinum Egoiste pour Homme 100 ml EDT, and quite happy about it. As I "scored" with 30% off already-on-sale fall clothes, I felt good about that and needed to give myself a treat for a two month long project that was finished successfully yesterday (FINALLY!)...I think I'm a little nuts for the marketed-to-masculine scents and PE was on my mind since my trip to ULTA last week. No more scent purchases for me until Christmas! So now I'm "layered" with the Coromandel from this morning, a few teensy test spritzes (Midnight Poison, Alien neither of which sang to me though I did enjoy MP from a sample earlier in the year) and Platinum Egoiste. Fragrantly ready for my lawn work!
Yesterday I was more stinky than skanky -- I mixed EL Knowing with L'A Dzing! It seemed like a good idea at the time. . . .
Today I am in AL China Pearl. Nice, light, linear, and definitely not stinky. Have a great day and take care, all!
