Morning all. Rose Ikebana today.
As I still have a rose flowering in the garden (in January!!!), I think I can get away with:

Good morning everyone In a really good mood today The boyfriend just came back from Oslo. Sotd is one of his favourites, Feminite du bois.
2 of me favorite ads of all time.
Le Labo Iris 39 for me today.
Robin-in-FL I loved you comments about Reglisse Noir yesterday. I think that you called it "clear headed". I have been interested in it for a while, purely based on the list of notes. Yes I know that can be precarious! But you have definately captured my interest now.
I'm wearing Neil Morris' Gandhara and sampling Le Temps d'une Fete... challenging for me because of its greenness, sweetness. There is something generic in this comp. Would be interesting to explore this further to know my preferences better. Overall, a good scent, its concentration (EdT) does not really make me happy, uninteresting base.
A big hooray on BN's performance this morning! Ergo, double post

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..."

"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
I am unable to move much (except my fingers!) due to a prolapsed
disc that I aquired whilst getting down the Xmas decorations.
I can still apply scent, however, and have chosen to wear the Idylle edt.
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

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
Foustie, have another cup of coffee and all will right itself
Mrs. E, you smell great today.
Kewart, take care of that back. Sorry to hear it has gone out on you.
SL Daim Blond for me this morning.
Good morning, everyone!
Kewart, I'm so sorry you got hurt! Rest and take care!!!!
It was so warm here over Christmas that our Pussy Willow trees were blooming.
Tomorrow it's suppose to reach 40 degrees, unheard of for our area in January, I
wish it could always be like this.
SotD is vintage Guerlain Vol de Nuit.
Have a great day!!

d4N13L, I love those Eau Sauvage ads. I think they're my favorites, too.
kewart, I'm so sorry about that disk! I hope you get better soon, poor baby! Ouch.
Addicted2Pretty, you smell great!
Those of you blessed to have roses blooming in January, how lucky you are! There are trees budding and blooming in our neighborhood, too, though it has turned cold here the past couple of days.
I'm trying Guerlain's Quand Vient La Pluie this morning, thanks to a very kind Basenoter who sent me a sample. It's lovely.
Kewart, hope you aren't laid up for too long. My best wishes for a quick recovery.

Today is my birthday..*yawn*, who cares about birthdays after 29 really? LOL. My nose has been pretty messed up for a few weeks now due to severe drought/dryness where I live. It's bone dry..it's like I have sand in my mouth, it hurts to breathe really, so dry it's gags my throat, never thought that could happen from dryness..driest season on record here. It's been all about the humidifiers but as soon as I go outside, it's really like I have just put sand in my mouth. I have had to keep squirting this mouth moisture crud in my mouth..urgh. Scents just seem to irritate my already irritated nose. And forget any fumes with musk in there..very bad reaction to that lately. So, no scent for me today!(Doesn't mean I won't think about getting one though, hehehe.)..It usually snows on my b-day but it looks like it's going to be another warm, dry day. Here's praying for snow!!!
