    “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.”

    Good morning all. SotD is Guerlain Heritage.



    And so it goes on. Here in sunny St Albans we have now gone for 3 months without any rain with the exception of two or three showers which have had no effect at all. The crops are failing. our grass is brown and there seems no rain forecast in the near future.
    Spoke to my sister in Christchurch, NZ and they are now having to combat widespread flooding following February's earthquake. The rivers have silted up, the water table has risen and with the additional autumn rain the clear-up is being hampered pretty badly. Talk about opposites.

    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..."

    Thought I would start with JM Sweet Milk but, as much as I like it, it was the wrong thing for today.

    Scrubbed it off and applied L'Artisan FdO instead. Ahhh, that's more like it.

    spent the weekend in Attrape Couer - in Shalimar today.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    Started with Caron No. 3 early and am now contemplating what to wear later. Have been enjoying Chopard Madness, and will probably go with that.

    Got up during the night & dug out my Bill Blass Couture 6. It was just what I wanted, so I am continuing with it today. From the 2008, NST review: "Couture 6 ~ With notes of rose, apple blossom, blackberries and patchouli. By perfumer Pierre-Constantin Guéros."

    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

    I'm joining petruccijc this morning in the house of Givenchy. My SotM is Eau de Givenchy.


    Notes of grapefruit and bergamot, honeysuckle, jasmine, cedar and musk.

    Some people prefer the vintage formulation to this version in the Parfums Mythiques collection, and I can sympathize with that - we mourn our old lost loves - but I don't know the vintage so I like this one just fine. It's pretty and refreshing in warm weather. Which we are now going into here in Virginia. Plus thunderstorms.

    Tying up my sampling of Hermes with Parfum d'Hermes. I'm really not sure what to think of this. At first it was a bit jarring - Imagine a water color painting, with some strange bold color splashed over it. Now it's settling, and it's very pretty, but I'm not sure I'd buy a FB.

    Me, too, Kiliwia. I don't remember any BNers from Joplin, Missouri, but if anyone else does, speak up. Dozens found dead so far.

    I'm appreciating the gift of a non-tragic Monday within the 18-inch-thick walls of our unscathed home, wearing some Marc Jacobs Lemon Splash.
