    Chanel's Coromandel for me today - truely one of my favorites that could just about be as close to THE ONE as any that I have smelled. Although, mind you, I can't wear just one It's a little earthy, but mostly just smooth, warm and oh so easy to wear, like wearing a silk blouse with worn jeans. Don't tell Coco - she would cringe at the mere mention of that outfit graced with one of her perfumes.

    A friend and I spent last night sampling a ton of fragrances in my wardrobe, and when he sprayed this one on a test strip and I caught a whiff of it, I realized how much I love this scent. I'm starting to smell how sweet it is, for a pepper prominent scent - sort of like a black pepper pie, if that makes sense. The incense just smolders all day long too. Big love for this one.

    I am in my favorite purple sweatshirt, though I might change into my comfy purple dress in a few hours to go to the hospital. I know that many of us are praying for an end to bullying and needless tragedy among our young people, but I'm requesting additional prayers and positive thoughts for my sister-in-law. She has had a heart condition since childhood and recently has been awaiting a heart transplant. We got a call from her this morning – a heart is on its way and surgery is supposed to be underway at any moment! This is very exciting but also scary, as you might imagine.

    It is sharp and smells exactly like the edp. Nothing like my previous bottle of Bandit extrait with the smoothness I love... And now it is too late to give it back...

    Quarry, what a huge drag! People who harm others for their own selfish pursuits are truly the dregs. I have to think they lack the ability to feel empathy for their victims, but then one wonders, how did they become that way? Or were they simply born that way?
    Studies show that about 4% of the population are sociopaths. I used to work with one-- a pathological liar. Those of us who worked with her daily had her number quickly, but it took a while longer for her bosses to catch on-- and when they did, she was escorted from the building by Security.

    Quarry, we had someone hack one of our credit cards this week too. Luckily, we didn't use it for any day-to-day uses and the CC company caught it early.

    Haunani - best wishes to your SIL and your family. I have a nine-year-old nephew who will be needing a new heart in the next several years, so I know it's an agonizing and angst-filled situation. I hope everything goes alright and you all will finally have some relief.

    And more hugs to you, Quarry. That really sucks!
