    Mouchoir de Monsieur

    Can you smell me in London, my friend? I think I oversprayed...

    Temp was 2C here first thing this morning. But nevertheless was out for two hours fast paced Nordic Walking in a beautiful forrested country park. Fantastic!

    Strange thing though, I could have sworn that I caught a whiff of Mouchoir De Monsieur......

    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..."

    SOTD is Comptoir Sud Pacifique Oud Intense

    Notes include blackcurrant, lemon, rose, patchouli, amber, cedarwood, pine needle, musk

    "Oud" is a bit of a misnomer here IMO, it's very subtle if it's in here at all (kind of the way M7 did it). Maybe the notes taken together as a whole are meant to evoke the impression of oud. In any case I'm getting a good hit of pine, which I enjoy and which gives a bit of crisp, aromatic freshness, and lots of woods mellowed by rose and amber. It's reminding me of things like the aforementioned M7 as well as Rocabar (must be the pine) and Santal Imperial, and is very, very nice, smooth, well-blended and elegant. I think wearable by men or women though it does skew more toward the "masculine" side (rarely a deterrent for me.)

    Best to all!

    Happy Birthday to Leila

    Today I am giving a full wearing to Chanel No. 19 Poudre from a sample from N'Awlins, which makes it all that much nicer!
    This is so soft on me, I am wearing about nine sprays which is unheard of for me, I can already feel it disappearing like a soft green mist off my skin, so longevity will be an issue, I fear.
    "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

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    N'Awlins you say? (hahaha)

    We are cold today -- woke up to 12F (-11C) and will have snowshowers this coming weekend. Who was going for a swim yesterday? Kiliwia's weather probably beat us, she is further up north.

    This has been a nutty week so far; I'm in comfort scents to help me stay on an even keel. Today's comfort scent is Jour de Fête.

    As soon as my cup of tea is ready I'm going to start calling a few home health agencies to set up 24 hour CNAs fom my mother, who is being discharged to her apartment on Tuesday.

    Sometime today I'll be going along when the OT does a home visit to check out how Mom's apartment is set up and what needs to be done there (not much, I wouldn't think-- I already outfitted it with a shower bench, rolling walker and travel size wheelchair.)

    Then I have to take my daughter to another doctor this afternoon for a follow-up visit. That will be her 3rd after-school visit to doctors this week.

    Like I said, a nutty week.

    Well I just had a chat with the owner of the home health agency. It seems they hire women from Ghana to be live-in assistants (that is, they don't do shifts.) Many of these ladies send money back to Ghana for their families. They are home health aides, not CNAs.

    I think we are in for an interesting time ahead.

    But. Larimar, he doesn't have a moustache?!?!?

    I am in a New Orleans scent too: Kus Kus! very spicy ambery, must have some vanilla, but I don't dislike it!
    very comfortable scent, lets hope Pepe le Q likes it!

    “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.”

    Bois des Iles again this evening. Her ladyship just walked in from work smelling rather familiar - looks like I have a scent twin today albeit of the non-Basenotes variety
