    Sorry Foustie, I nearly forgot... Stroh Rum? It has quite a distinctive aroma, which is great for baking or a plain splash of rhum in something hot, nothing fancy just straight-forward. 'In the old days' I think the percentage Stroh Rum was quite sought after by foreign shoppers and tourists. I think the wider availability of the nice Coruba Rhum and others have changed that or tastes have changed?

    It's official. I have been ruined by Shalimar. Not just any Shalimar. 1967 vintage extrait. Nothing else will satisfy at this point. I've tried to break away, sampling other beauties, and am relentlessly pulled back. I surrender. I rather blame mikeperez23. I spent the late morning, or was it the early afternoon, lolling about in a manner as described by kbe in a sensual cloud of lemon, bergamot, vanilla, incense and civet! Oh the glory!
    And it is spring! There are buds all throughout the sunny garden here at last.
    "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

    Kewart, I didn't realize you're in Shrewsbury. Not that I've ever been there but my favorite 14th century monk detective is based there.

    Larimar, you may stink but I'm sure you stink great!

    Foustie, I love reading your posts about where you've been and what you've been doing. Sounds like you had fun.

    That goes for everyone here...I love reading about everybody's day/evening.

    Twolf, I wonder if your well toe is getting a little bit jealous of the unwell toe's getting all the attention. So I'm sending best wishes to both toes!

    SotM was Panthère de Cartier Eau Légère.
    SotA is By Kilian's Love (don't by shy).

    Having a nice lazy Sunday here. We went to early a.m. church service, then out to breakfast at Can Can brasserie, came home and flopped out for a while with papers, Mr. Belle ranting a bit while reading as I unraveled a tangled skein of yarn I want to use. Got hungry again and scrounged through the fridge for leftovers for lunch. Now we're about to take the dog out for a walk. It's sunny but still a bit chilly here. I will enjoy it because here it turns hot immediately. Spring is lovely and early, but of short duration. How does my fascinating day sound?

    Love to all. ♥

    Good Evening,

    Passing over Kbe's post (hehehe) to send further healing vibes Twolf's way and to wish a future (?) member of the Alityke clan good luck for tonight.

    Best to all.

    I'm wearing Etro Heliotrope today. I was doing some daydreaming yesterday about buying plants ... I've tried heliotrope a few times and haven't had good luck with it. So, I was thinking where I should try it this year and woke up craving the scent of heliotrope. Gotta go with a craving like that!

    Happy Sunday to all!

    I'm now in a gorgeous and under-appreciated (even among admitted fruity-floral lovers, myself included) fruity-floral by Jean Patou, Patou For Ever. Have a nice evening everyone!


    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

    Hi everyone!

    Twolf, so sorry to hear about what happened to your toe. Rest and let yourself get waited on, you deserve it.

    It's 44 degrees outside and feels like springtime, yay!

    My husband has been in Minneapolis all weekend, so I figured it was a good time on Friday to start spring cleaning. Going through everything and getting rid of all we don't want or use. Didn't get finished but did better than I thought I would. Now it's to get it to the thrift store.

    Scent of the afternoon is Gucci Accenti.

    Enjoy what's left of the weekend!!

    I can still smell my fragrant oils from yesterday's massage, so no scent yet. Take care, all.

    Was going to wear no scent today, just to take a break, but I simply couldn't do it. I wore just a little Eau de Shalimar for my sunny, warm hour long walk/jog along the bike trail and now am sampling vintage Antilope- love it!- thanks to Ms. Jujy54. It reminds me somewhat of Chanel no. 5- clean, classy, and yes: comforting. (Sexy, too IMHO!) Thanks for sharing this beauticious beast with me.

    I am not wearing any scent today, in fact, I have not used perfume for a few days. Earlier in the week I noticed my skin had some problems behind my ears, where I normally spray perfume. I have a theory of what perfume is the culprit, but I am not sure. I just don't want to irritate my skin more.

    I sampled on my wrist What we do in Paris is Secret. It is beautiful!

    I hope this gets better soon. Sounds awfully bothersome.

    A lot of you are seeing signs of spring! Hooray! Some of our oak trees are beginning to green up, and nest-building birds are stealing spiderwebs from under our eaves.

    It was Vetiver pour Elle for me today.

    Get better Arwen! I've had something similar but just behind my left ear. I also stopped spraying / dabbing scent in that area and it cleared up in a couple of days .

    Frangipani extrait by Ormonde Jayne this evening.
    I cooked up some batches of low fat mini turkey meatloaves for the family. I won't eat any though, being vegetarian .
