    Happy Birthday, Leesee. Hope your family will bring you joy as they are camping with you this weekend.

    It is noon here and my second attempt at getting up. I know I have to go to the library and then to work at the restaurant (shredding carrots for the oriental-inspired slaw, making and dressing an Italian-themed rotini salad, replenishing potato salad that they ate almost all last night, perhaps a purple cabbage salad. Oh yeah, and a lemon tart and a candied peel bread).

    Started in Caron Narcisse Noir, continuing in HdP Moulin Rouge.

    Happy Birthday Leesee!

    Possumbility - those look delish. Are they Oregon Truffles by any chance ?

    SotE is Jicky (parfum).

    Best to all

    Quarry, always at your service! I wonder do you know the movie Harold & Maude? If not, this is REALLY a life-essential one you can't do without. Seriously!
    N'aimez que moi Extrait tonight... it's a wintery night and some snowshowers tomorrow morning are expected. Nothing substantial!
    No Jicky, though that was a good one for truffle hunting. I'm trying to wear truffle appropriate scents this season, Fahrenheit seemed like a good choice. Oregon white truffes Tuber oregonense have a slight petrol odor and that seemed like a good match. Hopefully I'll find some black truffles today, I prefer the white truffles myself, but the black ones are just cooler looking and harder to find, so it's more of a thrill. Next time, I'll think I'll wear Dzing.

    Hooray, I guessed correctly! Happy hunting - wish I could taste your finds.

    'Petrol odor' you say Possumbility? *looking innocent* .... me thinks Tabac Blond would be a nice one too for truffle hunting! Wow, G.! I have no clue about truffes.

    I don't know how to describe it, but petrol to me (and probably no one else) means an odor that's gaseous, industrial and appealing and repellant at the same time. Truffles has this fatty rancid butter smell too, along with a pine odor. It's a strange smell, but good. Demeter should come out with a truffle scent if they haven't already.
    Tabac Blond would be a great choice, alas it's one I don't own.

    Possumbility, would love to eat those truffles.

    Mike, wishing you some tea and honey, feel better.

    Happy Birthday Leesee!

    Hugs all around.

    I'm in Fifi Chachnil on the the left (coriander, rose, amber and tobacco) and Eau Sauvage on the right (classified as an aromatic citrus chypre?) and the two are getting along very nicely.
    "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."

    ((Leesee)), I'm glad you're enjoying your birthday.

    SotE is Annick Goutal Musc Nomade. We're going to our favorite local Vietnamese restaurant for dinner. B-belle is watching the Saints/49ers right now, though. :-/ We'll see whether he can tear himself away.

    Enjoy your birthday, Leesee!

    I am really itching to get all anointed in Amouage Gold, but cannot get to it. I woke up with a "morning drydown" -- love that phrase -- of #5 as well, then tested Dawn Spencer Hurwitz's Vert pout Madame. Gold... in the evening? Tomorrow??

    Quarry, I am glad to see you're loving the Kindle!

    ErynnsMomi, I don't think I had a chance to say hello. Hello and welcome!
