    Testing:

    - XerJoff's Dhajala
    - Frederic Malle's Une Rose

    I'm not pleased with any of them.
    Dhajala smells like Allure Homme,
    and Une Rose just manifests that
    I'm not a fan of pure rose.

    Neil Morris Perfume "Summer Of Love" and the radio station is playing Bob Dylan, LOL! very retro today... The smell is good, it started out kinda sharp, it's got something floral and sweet in there but buried below cedar & patchouli & hint of musk.

    Somehow I am still out of Thank Yous this morning, but I would like to thank everybody for your words of support and encouragement. Mr.T sends his hugs back too.

    As promised, here is a list of March Birthdays:
    03/09/1923 -- Andre Courreges;
    03/10/1956 -- Helmut Lang;
    03/14/1942 -- Serge Lutens (between tigrushka and Lady_in_Black, no wonder they are all in this together);
    03/23/1976 -- Ayala Sender (Ayala Moriel);
    03/24/1940 -- Robert (Bob) Mackie;
    03/30/1932 -- Jean L.H.Bousquet Cacharel;
    03/31/1929 -- Elizabeth Claiborne.
    If I am forgetting someone, please let us know.

    I am in L'Artisan Parfumeur Mimosa pour Moi -- first it was my bottle, then it was from Brielle's bottle and now these two last installments are from 30R. March-ey!

    CdG Ouarzazate. It works, of course - it always does, because I love it so - but I still wish I could have chosen SotD a couple of hours later today. Then I would have worn N°5 EdP, or vintage L'Aimant, or Shalimar, or something similarly powdery/vanillic and ever so slightly musty.

    Today Coty Les Muses.

    Sorry you're not well knit and Twolf! Hope you're feeling all better very soon.
    Duc, you dodged a bullet there, not liking the XerJoff or the Malle, yes?

    Today is a perfect sunny day -- and there's a film crew in my house! Using it for a location for a commercial shoot -- a Mazda commercial that will air in Quebec. They shoot in Houston as we have leaves on our trees and they're using our house for interior and garage shots, exterior is another house, so we didn't get to get our lawn painted green, oh well... So I hope my neighbors will forgive me, after the 20 trucks and cars are all gone later today. I didn't realize this would be such a big production (and I'm hiding out in my studio which is not being used as one of the rooms shown). The perfume-related point is: the lovely location fee! they pay us is officially a windfall and I'll use part for a nice purchase... Dia? Portrait of a Lady? Both? :-) YAY!!!!


    (P.S. add me to the March birthday list!! March 26. We need a HAPPY BIRTHDAY button in addition to the thanks button...)

    I settled on lilac fragrances for today...a combination of Demeter Lilac cologne (can't say this too often: avoid their "100% Natural Lilac edt"! It is nothing like lilac) and my little solid of Pacifica French Lilac. These are both a simple and realistic lilac and go together nicely.

    Highland Lilac is still the best but today I wanted these others.

    That's darned exciting! You must have a dandy home, C. Lands End did a shoot at my friend's historic house a few years ago. She felt overrun by crew and cables.

    A last of the Pehaligon's that are available for me -- but not a part of the sampler put together by 30 Roses -- Lily & Spice. A very realistic lily, when I smell the top notes seems like I can see the pollen inside the flower! Uh-oh, I am really allergic to that kind of lily in nature, so I will tread carefully here. At a first sign of a headache I'll jump straight into the shower.

    Not Spring here at all. Winter on the coast in March.

    (((TWolf))) (((knit-at-night))) stay rested and get well!
    ((Inees)) take care of that assignment!

    Wolfie, I think you will get new thank-yous in 24 hrs after you posted the last one. I think that's how it works, but I am not sure. If I am right, I will get mine between 2 and 3 pm today.

    Warum- I'm about 2 hours north of Atlanta and haven't worn a jacket in two weeks. Light sweaters and blazers during the day, maybe a light weight jacket at night. The trees are blooming and the pollen is out, so watch out for allergies. Our lowest lows have been in the high 30s and we've been up to the high 70s during the day on multiple days.

    Hi....it's me.....peeking out from the packing material & boxes, everywhere. I have my house completely torn apart. every. single. room. Well, that's what I did to work on this first round of packing to stage the house.

    I've been handing out big goodie bags of perfume samples to local ladies. Taking books to schools & libraries to see if they would like the donation. For my, err..more "mature" reading material I am sending some select volumes to my sister and taking a few more to the above mentioned local ladies.

    My daughter had another migraine this week, so she & I were dealing with that. We think we found out what a few of her food triggers are. She's not too happy about it but is willing to forego them to see if it helps with the headaches.

    We also got THE DRESS for her dance in June. It's a beautiful jewel toned persian blue, "happy" dancing dress.

    The County road crew arrived in force today to take down the remainder of the downed tree and it's semi rotted sibling nearby. It's a good thing too because, once again, we are having high wind advisories for the evening.

    I'm very glad to hear that Twolf & k@n are feeling better. The "bugs" have been especially bad this year.
    And C Rose, that's just too darned cool about the commercial!

    I was a big 'ole Bandit (parfum) today. Some days, it's the only thing that will do.
