    Good Morning,

    I'm in celebratory mood: I had my viva voce examination yesterday. After 4 hours of interrogation concerning my doctoral thesis, I was very happy to hear I'd passed ! With regards the all important question: 'which scent did I wear ?', the answer is 'nothing'. I didn't want to forever link a perfume to the day, with all the associated anxiety. Today however, I'm making up for it with a liberal application of Chanel Cuir de Russie (vintage EdT).

    FrouFrou: Thanks so much for the horsey pics. I knew Warum had to be right.

    Thinking of Mimi too.

    Best to everyone today.

    BIG BIG congratulations, my friend G.! I'm truly thrilled for you. You deserve bathing in your sacred stuff.
    I'm wearing my ME scent, of course... Tabac Blond!
    I'm one boring chap currently: Tabac Blond during the day and Shalimar at night would do me.
    I was thinking of Mims repeatedly yesterday. It must do her good with all this positive energy focused on her.

    Good morning all, and congratulations Gandhajala !.

    Spoke witn Mimi earlier. The positive vibes were much appreciated - she's doing OK and sends her thanks to everyone.

    In synch with Hypnotic Poison.



    So much for the heavy snowfall. Woke up this morning to ............ absolutely nothing. I reckon our weatherfolk should be put on performance related pay. They'll be busking on street corners by the New Year - and I'll willingly provide the harmonicas.

    Dr. Gandhajala, congratulations!!! Well done, sir.
    Jon, thanks for the update, it is appreciated.

    I can't do poison, er, I mean Poison. Maybe tonight I will brave a little from a sample of Hypnotic Poison, and give it another try.

    But for today, I'm going comfy with PG Cadjmere. The stress of holiday season is getting to me a bit, and I just need to relax. I've been wearing alot of vanilla frags at night, I should have recognized that I needed something comforting So now I'll switch to comforting, soft and creamy woods.

    OI RODGERS.... Whit do you mean there is nae snaw? There is bliddy snaw! It obviously got blown off course a bit and got dumped on me!!

    G You dancer!! Congratulations. I hope that you intend to celebrate.

    Going for the Friday synch today and am twinned with the snow free Jon. This is the only poison that I have, a mini Hypnotic from a lovely Dior SA. I have smelled it but I don't think that I would have worn it if were not for the synch. So isn't that great? Nothing ventured and all that....so far so good actually.

    Frou Frou What a fantastic image, beautiful you on that beautiful horse, going full pelt.

    Good morning everyone!

    The NOMA Centennial Celebration starts tonight, and this is a very big deal around here - the museum will be open for 31 hours straight with tons of events planned. My little niece and nephew are in town and, naturally, they want to take part in all of them, lol! I need something that I can get a full day out of, so I'm in the gorgeous and everlasting Badgley Mischka edp. Y'all have a great day!





    Congratulations gandhajala - I bet you're glad to have that behind you! Cheers!

    And here's a comforting hug for ((cello)) - it sounds like you could use a drink, too!

    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

    In synch today and scent triplets with Jon Rogers and Foustie in Hypnotic Poison. Almost through our first week at work with the new computer system, it is still messed up but getting better.

    Thanks Jon for the update;have been worried.Hope our (((Mimi))) will be healed back to her own strong self very soon.

    Congratulations, Gandhajala! I mean Dr. G.! I don't blame you for not wearing a scent for that.

    Jon, thanks for the update on Mimi. Still praying for her speedy recovery.

    I'm out of synch, as I have no Poison, only a decant of Midnight Poison, but it isn't what I'm in the mood for. I'm trying some vintage Jontue cologne splash that I bought cheap on ebay (speaking of guilty cheapies) - an old fashioned chypre'y floral - and no vanilla or caramel for a change. I wore this as a girl, and it still smells good, but only the vintage, not the stuff they sell in the drugstore now.

    Yeah,we'll see how much endurance I have with this,Lilybelle!It's wearing me down already.

    I used to love and wear Jontue,as well.Was so beautiful and wearable just about anywhere.I'm glad you mentioned the newer juice-had been tempted to try but successful so far at forcing myself to steer clear.Will be easier to walk on by now!Thanks!

    Yes, you will be disappointed in the current juice, sadly degraded in quality like so many others now. Jontue was always a drugstore scent, though it was pretty and had...oak moss (gasp!), and other ingredients that I suppose are nearly impossible now, and certainly impossible at a drugstore price.

    I have Poison in vintage Esprit de Parfum but there's no way I could wear that today as it's hot & sticky here in Miami (maybe I'll wear it tonight?) so instead I'm wearing the light & breezy...

    Hermessence Brin de Reglisse by Hermes



    An equal distance between aromatic (lavender) and gourmand (licorice candy), perfectly balanced. My only wish is that it was a tiny bit stronger, or that Hermes made body products in this scent (lotion, cream) which would extend the scent. Now that I think of it BDR is almost the exact opposite of Poison.
