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!
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
Good Sunday morning all,
Hope your all warm, dry and safe during todays storms (Evangeline, Quarry, Kiliwia) heavy downpour of rain here which is supposed to turn to ice later. Good wishes and hugs to all , take care,
SotD is Coco.
Happiness is a summer breeze, sand between your toes, and your family by your side.

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..."

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?
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
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.

SOTD is Lady Stetson. Trying to figure out what to wear to a Christmas dinner party on Tuesday night.
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.

Sorry to hear about all the bad weather! Hunker down, or snuggle up! (It's sunny and around 57 here, and NO wind )
I'm in Hermes Vetiver Tonka today.
I'm wearing PdN Kiss Me Tender today.
The wind's still blowing here (what a massive storm, we only got the wind and cold) so I'm in warm fragrant E.M. Ca'd'Oro (J. Peterman) with lots of warm musk-amber-patchouli-sandalwood-almond goodness. With a touch of bergamot on top. Nice!
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.
Keep warm all!
You all smell so nice!
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.
There is a singular joy in the experience of receiving perfume by mail. It is one of life's great little pleasures - one that more should have the pleasure of knowing.
(way to go, ineespenes!)
Hope you all have a relaxing Sunday -- it's a lovely day here... sunny and just a bit cool.
Only one fragrance seemed right for today :
Later I'm going to see "Black Swan" movie with some girlfriends...

hello all my snuggle bunnies out there.
Wish I could make a huge pot of chocolat chaude for us all to share, distance being the rain on the parade, but here is a virtual chocolat toast to all weathering wintery conditions.
Today i still smell lovely from last night's Fille d'Ève, so i am content.
Stay warm all.

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!
