    I'm weathering a big bad snowstorm (how are y'all doing out there Quarry?) in a warm, creamy and luscious cloud of Guerlain's Iris Ganache. Sublime!

    It's a cold, sunny day here in KS - thinking about everyone dealing with the snow!

    Bedtime last night I was still smelling faintly of Rubj extrait, so I layered it with M. Micallef Rose Aoud. Surprisingly good.

    This morning: the delicious Diptyque Oyedo.

    Planning on a Bunny Boiler film fest this eve. FM Une Malle to accompany "Play Misty for me" and "Fatal Attraction". A perfect combination, don't you think?

    Oh, Lessa, you're sooo bad: Bunny Boiler. I like your location note, too: Fragrant house on the prairie. You're so much fun.

    Things are comfy here in Snow Globe, U.S.A., aka the upper Midwest. Wouldn't care if we got stranded for days except my honey's got a c-scoping scheduled for Wednesday, and that's not something you want to go through all the prep for and then have to reschedule due to road conditions.

    Think I'll just play with frags rather than spray on just one today.

    Good evening all Friday's Christmas-party was fun...But it seems I get rather flirty after a few drinks* blushing* At least I managed to stay away from the guy I still ( unfortunately)like...And that even when he decided to sit next to me. Actually kind of proud of myself Met a lot of new, nice people too that I'm sure I'll keep in touch with. I looked good in a very Audrey Hepburn way and smelled nice in #88. Today I'm in Hypnotic Poison.

    Sampling vintage YSL Rive Gauche today. Don't remember ever testing it, even in it's hey day.

    So far it feels too "tailored" for me.

    I'm testing Eau de Givenchy today. Very pretty. It smells like the sort of thing I wore in the early eighties. Feminine and smooth. Very floral. A lovely fragrance.

    Started very early with Youth Dew. (That seems to compete well with the incense at church all morning.)

    This afternoon I am wearing Loulou. It is so cold and blustery and the heavy, spicy scents seem to warm me up a bit.

    Oh my, I am so excited! I am in Honey Blossom by Aftelier Perfumes, too new of a fragrance to be in the database yet (which means I cannot post it as a SOTD -- baaah!).

    As soon as I read about it in the NST, I knew I had to try it. Honey, honeysucklye, linden blossom -- all those notes weren't just calling my name, they were singing it!.. It was right then when I found out that I'm not going to Berkeley in Dec, so I can't visit Mandy Aftel's open studio and the sale. So as soon as I got a word on 10% off sale of her entire website, I was all over it for some samples, Honey Blossom came first on the list.

    This is adorable. I want to jump, and laugh, and sing I love this one! I'm afraid right on my wishlist it goes -- for my birthday I guess!

    Snowglobe, USA is reporting, finally.... OK, here I sit yesterday at 6 am, making a wishlist of LuckyScent samples and Bamm! -- the telephone rings -- a lady who lives 15 miles away can't make it to work so I have to come and cover for her, if I would please? I hop into the bathtub and it is snowing outside, my DH packing a gallon of water and a blanket for me, I laugh. I come to work and nobody shows up -- and the wind picks up and the temps drop down (-6F this morning plus wind) and the visibility is ZERO feet (maybe a few inches), nothing can be seen from the frosted windows, and there is miriads of little white stingy flakes coming in circles from NW. So I stay and work all day yesterday, at night, and in the morning until the people with bobcats come and make some rattle. And I only came home about 20 minutes ago -- 32 hours on the job? In tune with Mrs.E -- all in all it's just a.... nother brick in the wall.

    Nothing yet, tons of hand lotion (Dead Sea Treatment) with a slight apricot kernel smell. On the good side, the driveway at home has been cleared -- thank you, Mr.T the smooth snow-thrower operator!

    OH wow, I hope everyone who is CHILLY and COLD stays as warm as possible today...I'm lucky it's a very warm 75 degrees (F) here in Miami.

    I'm still fighting my cold/congestion, so I decided to sample some of the stronger ones in my pile, as they will most likely make it through my congested nose. And, this one is, for sure:

    Oud Cuir d'Arabie by Montale (from a sample - thanks Futami)



    Perhaps the strongest (and most 'barnyard') smelling leather / oud combination I've ever smelled. I love it. I'm just wondering...when would I wear this?

    Twolf, Oh my gosh! You deserve a merit award, and I'll call your place of employment and tell them myself if you like!

    To all of our snow bunnies in the upper Midwest, sending you toasty (((hugs))) and a get well (((hug))) to Mike_Perez. It's raining and cold & raw here today, actually I'm not all that toasty, but I have no right to complain.

    I've been wearing No. 5 body lotion all day and into the evening (an early Christmas gift). It's been my only scent today. I applied it early this morning before 8:00 church service, and I can still smell it almost 12 hours later. There was a point in my life when I wore scented body lotions and creams in winter as my sole perfume, and I might start doing that again. If the formula for the cream or lotion is good it's a particularly luxurious and sybaritic way to wear fragrance. The scent lasts forever yet stays closer to the body. I particularly enjoyed Shalimar this way, also YSL Paris, Halston, and there was also a divine Borghese Giardini de Montecatini body cream - just to die for. Opium was pretty nice, too, but the Borghese was the best of all. Ah...memories!

    I hope everyone had a good Sunday. We decorated our tree today. It looks great. It took a lot of work, though, so it may never come down again. Night, lovie doves!

    It was 86 degrees here this afternoon. The weather changes from day to day.
    I wore Chloe (the original) and it may have been too much with the heat. I did not even sprayed, I dabbed and I can still smell it as if I had just applied.

    I had hula class again today. Wore one of my favorites, CdG Kyoto, to keep myself focused. It's such a great fragrance! :-)
