    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..."

    My daughter is home one more day before school resumes so I expect she will want to go somewhere and do something. I'm holding off on fragrance for now until we decide what we're doing.

    Well I thought I was being fancy by spritzing with George Sand today until my 14 year old son said: Mom, can you promise to never wear that perfume again? You smell like my friend's mother, and I want you to smell like you.
    So I asked him what he wanted me to wear and he said anything else except for that one.
    Sorry, George.

    What to do now?

    Thanks Jon for your kind sentiment, but I'm on my iPad only today and there is an issue (not visible) with these embedded links (not an apple problem I assume, but rather a BN thing... probably pointless to report it?). I'll check back tomorrow or so, thanks again, Jon!
    I wore Tabac Blond to the stables today. I think I haven't told you guys that I started horseback riding in October... oh well, you don't have to know everything. Now a hot bath and it feels like more Tabac Blond afterwards (including the smoke later on). Have a great day all!

    Vintage Shalimar bath oil. I wear it as parfum sometimes.

    Larimar, glad to know about your horseback riding! I haven't done it in years but nothing else in life ever gave me the happiness that riding does. Maybe that's why I am enjoying Cuir de Russie so much. It reminds me of beautiful sweaty horses.

    Blackberry & Vanilla Musk from Trish McEvoy. I've decided to abandon using the headline name on the bottle, "Sexy 9," for its inaccurate connotation.

    Good afternoon. Mure et Musc Extreme over a mango body butter from body shop.

    Quarry, if the Trish McEvoy is anything like the MeME, (ooh, I like that abbreviation) would have to agree on non-sexy, this is what I think of as good office perfume. Professional and clear-headed. Not that it isn't Attractive, it smells great and I love it. But it's not sexy like dancing or sex or a night out or high heels, it's more restrained and everyday. It is what I would (will! will!) wear to a job interview, applied lightly, to keep clear head and confidence.

    Kewart, I love Dior Escale a Portofino, too. It truly is happy & classy at the same time.

    I went to the gym today and had a really for real workout, but I haven't chosen a SotD yet (I mean SotA!). I may take a cue from Quarry and Robin and wear my sample of L'Artisan's Mure et Musc. I really do like it. I just sampled it for the first time the other day. I am daydreaming about buying a bottle, but will have to wait. I just wrote the check for our credit card bill today. And next month's is going to be a whopper, too. It's going to be a quiet next few months around here. Which is fine, too.

    Back in Tromsø and the darkness for a few days now...Didn't make it for breakfast until the time was around...two! Afterwards me and my sisters took a long walk to my dad's where we had dinner. Sotd is Narciso Rodriguez FH edt. It's always best to go on the softer side with my dad when it comes to scent. It's been a while since I last wore it, so I rather enjoyed it Hope you all have a great day!

    Happy New Year, BNers! I'm testing the By Kilian Arabian Nights trio today. Impressions:

    Pure Oud: Nope, can't do. Smells like an army of bandaids.
    Incense Oud: Slightly sweet, mysterious, beautiful! And not very oud-y. ♥
    Rose Oud: Dark, fruity rose oud. I prefer Micallef Rose Oud and C&S Dark Rose.
    Bottom Line: I'm not an oud girl.

    Lessee and I were discussing this one via PM tonight so I decided to make it my SOTE.


    Rtamara - sounds like your son's opinion of fragrances is pretty strong...wonder who he got that from??
    GelbeDomino - I have always wanted to smell/use Shalimar bath oil...is it vintage/disco'd or does Guerlain still make it?
    Quarry - Sexy No. 6 just sounds silly

    I'm testing JM Pomegranate Noir today. I had marked this in my "to-test" wardrobe, but not really sure why. Maybe the plum note? I'm surprised at how spicy this is! Not that I'm an expert on Jo Malone, but this is quite spicy for her, no? But even with the spiciness, there is a clean, fresh feeling running throughout. Unusual for spice and clean to play so well together.

    Hugs to all ...

    Today I wore Philtre d'Amour. I think I over did it, somehow I think I have to use more when it is splash. The office was basically empty, the only problem was that I found myself in a car with four co-workers at lunch time. I think we were the only ones in the building who did not take the day off.
