    Morning, y'all!
    Makes a big difference to post from the Eastern time zone -- a fewer posts in the morning!
    I am still scentless because my husband is asleep and I will wake him if I take a shower.
    Today me and him and my brother and sister in law (plus their daughter I guess) will drive to Blue Ridge and go to an art gallery there, maybe some shops. Since this is a more sophisticated venture than a family Q, I'll wear either a little bit of Chanel #5 or Anne Pilska. I have both. I will need to decide what to wear after I take a shower. Either one of these I haven't worn in Spring, especially on a cold Spring morning, and would love to see how they do.

    Jon Rogers, you smell wonderful!

    Neil Morris' Prowl today. It's a little LOUD, DH was not pleased to ride with me to work in the little car this morning but I think it will be OK as it dies down.

    Very pretty scent. I'm not sure the name matches it, perhaps if someone is prowling through a jungle full of blooming flowers, crushing them silently underfoot?

    Thinking of (((Kumquat))) today and wishing her well.

    I'm wearing a spritz of Hadrien edt this morning. This fragrance settles my stomach, my nerves, it's cooling in the summer, calming at any time. It's all I can wear this morning because I've been drinking green tea on an empty stomach, which makes me feel queasy even though I add lemon & agave syrup. I drink it for its benefits, not for the taste!

    Have a good day, all. ♥

    Good morning everyone Today I'm off to meet a friend over a cup of coffee. Not looking forward to go outside ,though.It seems it just won't stop snowing. Couldn't quite decide if I wanted to wear Mystere ( like yesterday),Bois des iles or Vol de nuit today. Felt like wearing something a bit luxurious. Almost ended up with Bois des iles, but I'm afraid my decant will run out...since I don't know if my friend will be able to get me one in Paris I'm wearing vol de nuit instead. Big hugs to Kumquat and Sophi today.

    It's snowing here again today. Sigh. Spring is being such a tease. I'm in SL Boxeuses. The mixture of plum and leather just seemed right today.

    I love Boxeuses. But there's one thing I can't decide: if I have Daim Blond, is it largely redundant to have Boxeuses? Really, the primary difference is the fruit. The leather/suede and wood accords are quite similar. Any thoughts?

    I'm in 24, Faubourg so far today... I blind bought a small bottle (12 mls) of this some time ago, and this is my first full wearing. I can't fault the artistry on this, it smells beautiful -- yet, its opulence is annoying me. I'm guess I'm just not in the right mood for this today (still in my workout clothes -- maybe if I was going to the opera in pearls a little dab would be nice...?)

    Think I'll go scrub and find something that feels lighter and more modern.

    Today's the day after the Big Meeting, and it's got all the weird vibeage that ensues. It's tough being a loud-mouthed type A, man. I feel like such meetings just stir up discontent, but maybe it's just me. So many problems discussed, but never any practical solutions. And why is there always "this one person" who drives you batty? Ugh. Trying to get it out of my system.

    Anyway, sotd is Tabac Blond. I almost went with Alien, but... when in a funk, I find it best to go with the #1. I think that's the best argument I can give in favor of a signature scent-- it just feels nice to put on something that is always good, completely familiar, like second skin.

    Congrats to Baldufita on 1000!

    Trying some Chamade parfum this afternoon/evening (decant sent to me by a very kind and missed Basenoter). It's been in my mind since Mr. G.'s post on it the other day. I'm torn between modern sheer scents and the classic Guerlains. I guess both will do nicely. No need for either/or.

    For evening tonight I changed into Anne Pilska, it's a nice evening scent for me. Mr. Warum said, "cheescake" and offered negative feedback. I love him still, and I do think that it's a good one to have. Doubt I would be able to do a sprayer of it, though, a dab from a sample is plenty. When my sample runs out, I'll just get another one and keep it at that.

    Snow in Greece? Never in my wildest imagination could I envision that. Our weather is very very windy- perfectly demonstrating the old saying about March "in like a Lion"

    SOTD was Bond No 9 New York Fling. Lovely "spring fling" floral/musk scent.
