    Going to bed in this...I have no Ava Luxe to join the synch this morning. I might wear Breath of God just to be weird. But I'm synching in spirit.

    Robin, I hope your job interview went well!

    Twolf, I hope the tater salad was tasty!

    Sending good vibes to all of you!

    It is still Thursday here as I type this but I lurve me some Ava Luxe (sorry, Twolf) and plan to wear Kama tomorrow (Friday).

    Take care, all.

    Not in synch. Testing Fracas by Robert Piquet, from a generous sample given by Lillybelle.
    “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! Thank you so much for your good wishes, and I think they were effective; as background I've been applying online to a lot of jobs but not much success so decided that it would be better to, well, get someone to pimp me, I suppose is the best way to explain it - a recruiter who matches people and jobs. So that was the interview - the good news is the recruiter said that when I came in she had just received a request from a client for someone with almost exactly my skill set and background, so she was happy I had called, now she will try to get me an interview at the client, so I am hopeful, a big thank you for the luck, y'all.

    Good morning everyone In synch with AL Queen Bess. I got the perfume oil and the opening is quite loud...First time I tested I got something a little "bugsparyish". Not today, though, but the opening does have some kind of combination of citrus,patchoulie and roses...So that is probably it:P I love the spicy,sandalwoody,rosey drydown of this scent however.
    Notes accoridng to the website are :
    Bergamot, Cinnamon, Clove bud, Cardamom, Carnation, Saffron, Grass, Rose musk, English tea rose, Moroccan rose absolute, Turkish rose absolute, Bulgarian rose absolute, Lavender absolute, Cedar, Amber, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Earth, Civit, Ambergris.

    Well off to a scary start this morning when I dropped a bottle of CdG Daphne on the floor, while I was taking it out of that little red velvet bag it comes in. It landed smack on the floor but luckily, it didn't break. It did frighten my poor cat who was eating in the same place, however. Whew... disaster averted. Nice solid glass bottle.
    I'm in Daphne (not the whole bottle, only 2 sprays) which is wonderful in small quantities. Happy Friday...

    Absinthe (parfum) by Ava Luxe



    This is not the vintage 'Martian green' colored liquid that I remember from years ago, but the smell is nonetheless fantastic. Absinthe and Midnight Violet were always my favorite from her line. It smells EXACTLY like absinthe liquor - that harsh almost medicinal mixture of grasses, herbs with a deep (non-sweet) anise dry down. It reminds me a little of that green spirulina drink that you get in health food stores. I mean that as a compliment.

    In synch this morning and twins with Kiliwia in Ava Luxe's Madeline. I got this sample from our sample sniffing binge in NOLA. Rtamara urged someone to take it home and give it some love, as it is now discontinued, so I volunteered for the job. Someone's gotta do it. This is veeeerrry sweet. Smells like fruit syrup, pine needles, and ??? to me.

    In sync today first time in a month or so. I'm wearing Ava Luxe's Milk in perfume oil. My sample says extrait but since it didn't come from the sourse, I think it probably is mislabeled somewhat. The liquid is incredibly viscose and oily, was glistening on my skin almost for an hour after application... all signs of perfume oil for all I know. Correct me if I'm wrong. Of course, part of my reasoning is that Milk is available on the site in the form of perfume oil and EDT, but NOT extrait.

    I love wearing a perfume with milky smell, it seems to comfort me. I will leave a comparison between this one and Jo Malone Sweet Milk for the SnS thread -- we're doing gourmands in December!

    Robin, somebody's going to be very lucky to have you in their employ.

    I was going to wear the Ava Luxe Midnight Violet inherited from Mike, but my clients have been toying with my schedule and trying my patience, so I've finally applied scent at 2:30 p.m., and I needed mint to sooth my mood: Jo Malone Fresh Mint Leaf. Love those spearmint top notes. There's something a little funky in the heart, but I try to smell around it.

    Robin, sounds good!

    Mom is doing very well with walking now that she is allowed to partial weight bear. She needs the rolling walker, of course, but this afternoon I got her from her recliner to the elevator and back, 180 feet (I paced it out.) She tolerated it very well and could easily have gone a bit farther, so tomorrow we'll ride the elevator to the first floor and start walking toward the communal dining room (with the wheelchair behind us for when she gets tired) to see how far she can go in one direction. Then each day we'll go a bit farther.

    I think it will not be very long before she can walk to her evening meal. At this point she uses the walker in the apartment and the wheelchair has been relegated to long distance use only. Of course none of this is by herself-- she has to be guarded and cued for safety-- but I do believe she will achieve independent ambulation again.

    This is no small thing. Only 50% of seniors who break a hip are able to walk independently one year after their fracture. Shocking statistic, really.
    And 21% never regain the ability to walk functionally, but have to use a wheelchair instead.
