    Good morning all,
    The stubborn I am, I have time today to play around with En Avion extrait. I love the smell so much, so why can't it perform well on me? BUT looking good at the moment with dabbing... I think it is the same as with Tabac Blond, spraying 'unsettles' the balance. The fragrance is appropriate for today's early temperatures that were slightly above freezing, but deep blue sky.
    Enjoy your Wednesday!

    Morning Everyone,

    SotD is:



    Off to the ballet this evening - one of my favourite ballerinas (Marianela Nuñez) is dancing, so very excited. SotE will probably be Bois des Iles.

    Best to All.

    Enjoy your ballet Gandhajala!

    I am wearing Douceur de La Vanille (Les Nereides) in an
    effort to calm myself down after nearly writing off my car
    yesterday. I wasn't hurt, just my pride, but I think my brakes
    must have failed or I went for the wrong pedal - it was all such
    a blur!!
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    Thanks for the picture. Reminds me of Paris We walked passed this store only a fortnight ago! A 10 minute walk brought us to Etat Libre D'Orage on the same street located on provocative 69 Rue des Archives.

    Wearing Neil Morris Prowl today. Lovely flowers over patchouli & deep musk, it's not gentle or light, it's confident and assertive.

    Yes Gandhajala, enjoy your ballet!
    Kewart, I'm so sorry. How terrifying! Thank goodness you are ok, that's the main thing of course. xox

    Testing and loving En Voyage Perfumes Nectars des Îles. Sweet, creamy tropical florals brightened with little glints of tangy freshness. The scent is narcotic, lush and dense and truly, dizzyingly beautiful.

    middle notes: fresh gardenia and tiare petal accord, absolutes of two frangipani species, ylang ylang, jasmine auriculatum
    base notes: sandalwood absolute from Vanuatu, Tahitian vanilla, amber, fine white musks

    Kewart, I'm so glad you are okay!

    Having found Prada Infusion de Rose so disappointingly weak and undistinguished last night, I have just sprayed on Zizonia from the sample I decanted at Saks on Saturday (2 sprays to chest.)

    Goodness but this smells like Cartier Declaration Cologne-- but the other is better. This is turning soapy only a few minutes into it. I think I'll stick to the the other one-- which I am still thinking of buying a bottle of.

    Good morning, sweetlings!

    Kewart, I am glad you are unharmed. How frightening for you. {{{{{{{hug}}}}}}}

    I have a kitty cat whacking me upside the head with her tail. Bella has taken to sitting on the back of the living room chair whenever I sit here. She likes to watch the movement on the laptop.

    I have votes for my Bonding with Mom entry! I'm so excited! Thank you to all who gave me a comment there, it's very much appreciated. If anyone would like to read the tributes to Mom, and in my case my Aunt as well. http://blog.bondno9.com/ You might learn more about me than you ever wanted to know. LOL!

    In honor of my artistic Aunt and my Mom, my scent today continues to be Shalimar, just a teensy bit over the body cream.

    *Dora*, I was THIS close to choosing what you are wearing today. Put on M. Micallef Black Sea instead, this is my favorite from the Seas line.

    Kewart, hugs to you. Glad your spirits are high.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    Everyone smells wonderful.

    Kewart, an accident is so upsetting, even if nobody is injured (thank goodness!). I hope today is calm and uneventful for you.

    Tdem61, your SotD sounds gorgeous!

    It’s rainy and dreary, and I’m wearing a tiny spritz of Dior Dolce Vita this morning. It's cozy and comforting but not "cheery".

    Hello everyone -

    I'm in Hermès Rouge this morning. Y'all have a good 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

    Hi All!

    It's still hovering in the 50-60s here in Boston, so I'm taking advantage of the cool, Spring weather and wearing my beloved Chanel Cuir de Russie (EDT).

    Have a great day!
