    Good morning!

    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.

    Same here! It does look like October or March here... no complaint! Leave it as it is

    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.

    "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."

    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!!!

    You too, kewart, take good care of that back. I'm a back problem sufferer, too- my sympathies are with you!

    No.5 Sensual Elixir today. I have a happy SA story about this one- was in Macy's awhile back purchasing this and a few other things. SA was quite interested; had never tried this particular concentration before on herself. Told her about it and basically sold it to her, then she says, "I need to make up a tester of this to set out, this would sell really well!" When I left, she was doing just that. I love it when SA's are receptive to fragrance conversation. What this girl lacked in training, she more than made up for in curiosity and enthusiasm.

    Happy Birthday, kalli!
    Sympathy on your dry nose! Every winter the air is so dry in our house. I keep a bottle of Simply Saline (saline without preservatives) next to my bed and use it nightly; it makes for more comfortable sleep and seems to carry over to the following day as well.

    Kewart, I hope you start feeling better soon. There is nothing like back pain to put you out of commission. Sometimes an ice pack relieves pain more than heat does, although it is less comfortable to apply.

    I took Mom to the surgeon today and the X-rays showed full bony union as I expected, but also a bit of osteoarthritis, which explains the continuing occasional pain she feels in the hip. She's been given the orders we sought for outpatient PT. So far, so good. Now if I can only get her to walk safely without having to be supervised 24/7!

    While I was in the lobby of her seniors' apartment building I smelled orange blossom in the air near a group of people. I mentioned how good it smelled but all denied wearing perfume-- so now I'm wondering where the fragrance was coming from. anyway, that put me in the mood for orange blossom, so I have just applied my beloved L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger to see me thorough the afternoon.

    Worn soft and gentle as I was being interviewed for a promotion. Went for JPG Classique X. Wished I'd worn what I felt like instead. Ambre Sultan but it would have risked offending the panel but I'd have felt confident. Didn't get it, bad day at the office I forgot my specs and couldn't read to do the last minute prep I'd planned. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail... Which I promptly did

    Notes: Carrot, pimento berries (allspice), Tahitian vanilla flower, laurier rose (oleander), glycine (wisteria), tiger orchid, sandalwood, vanilla

    Comments: The carrot is fun, but disappears fairly quickly. What is left is a lovely, sweet (but not too sweet for me) spicy-warm floral blend. It gives me the impression of carnations, and I love carnations!
