    I will do that today without fail. I'm glad to hear feedback is back!

    Oh dear, I'm so low rent this morning I'm not sure I deserve to be amongst you, in Parfums de Coeur Body Fantasies Fresh White Musk body spray -- just a teeny spritz before heading off the to gym to do my dreaded workout. (I do love this particular musk!).

    See you later! Smooch!

    Good morning, everyone, it's a beautiful morning here too!

    SotD is Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y. It has notes of pink and black pepper,
    truffle, lily of the valley, oak moss, patchouli, ambrette seed and white musk.
    It's very fresh and light. I really like this one, must have a thing for lily scents,
    first Baiser Vole and now this one.





    Have a great day!

    Gandhajala, don't forget your camera as you head out the door!

    Evangeline, you have already provided a wonderful mental photo of your joyous upcoming work world. Happy for you.

    Foustie, thank you for your important work. Hugs.

    This heat just won't let up. Day after day we're breaking temperature records.
    The cockatiel is trying to take a bath with his drinking water, so I best take him out to the front porch and shower him with a pump sprayer. This is March???

    Problem was I put BubbleGum Chic on the other wrist so as I drove home and my wrists turned the steering wheel, there was a whole heap of competing smells going on. I need to be more focused!!!

    Sitting here with cuppa tea trying to make scent decision for the day,
    Can't wear Beige (colleague i sit next to calls it baby wipes)
    Can 't wear Bois des Iles ( same colleague goes a bit like melts an all 'unnecessary' - he sure likes that one)

    I want an almond fix but need to have a focused day of industry.

    Oh my decisions decisions.....see you all in the Thursday thread..

    danny 1967 - I too struggle to enjoy French Lover...I think it's the angelica, it's...scratchy...now that Tumulte by Lacroix, that's fantastic juice. I agree with you, its a wonderful woody/incense and I love the bottle design too

    the angelica!! yes, of course!! how well you described it: scratchy!! could not put my finger on it and then you got it, BANG ON!
    i think i'd rather pay £30 for the lovely tumulte by lacroix then £140 for french lover... sometimes, more expensive doesn't mean better and it's just the hype (or/and brand)..

    (Mimi) I hope you are sleeping better? I got caught up finally and slept in. Tylenol helped...I have to remember to take some at bedtime. I hurt my left shoulder, probably from hauling groceries to my mother's apartment (pulling a 2-wheeled shopping cart (it's an uphill walk from the parking lot which doesn't help!)

    Most of the extra groceries are due to the caregiver's being there, but she is actually finishing up this Saturday! I think Mom is finally ready to be on her own again-- for the first time since she broke her hip in October. I'm a bit nervous about it-- hoping and praying she doesn't have another fall-- but it's time to give her the chance to succeed on her own. The caregiver was wonderful with her...I hope if we ever need to hire her again, that she'll be available.

    It's a gorgeous, warm late spring/early summer day here -- I love this weather but I wonder how hot summer will be if March is like this?

    My SotD is the refreshing YSL In Love Again.

    It's a warm, sunny day in LA as well. I'm going to give my skin a rest from sunbathing and go to some nurseries instead.

    30 Roses, I'm worried about the summer heat too! LA barely had any rain this winter. We actually had to crank up the watering system to summer levels as things have been wilting.

    Gandhajala, hope you have a great evening-- that sounds like lots of fun!

    Wearing Y by YSL today...

    Happy Thursday, everyone!

    I'm sure G. is enjoying himself immensely tonight... still envious... a bit
    I'm enjoying a vintage sample of Santal Noble (Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier) to go with tuna made according to a South Italian recipe (Jaime Oliver - tonno di nonna Fangitta)... I got some top quality tuna at a fantastic price that I simply could not resist. Don't ask me what bit me to cook something 'extravagante' during the week. However, Bon appetit!

    SotA is L'Artisan Parfumeur Iris Pallida. Not fond of the first couple of minutes, but then it turns
    into a totally lovely iris fragrance. Love it!

    We are drizzly this afternoon, the heat finally let up -- some! -- and I feel like wearing Rive Gauche, all of a sudden and on top of my SotM.

    Thinking fondly of my three friends: E., JR and F. And always thinking even fondlier of K.

    We are in exactly the same situation. Apart from one heavy snowfall we have had virtually nothing for months here. Water levels are already critical and hose pipe bans are set to commence in April. We desperately need rain and there is still none forecast.




    Hope the leathery doctor is having a ball tonight.

    These lovely photos are making me crave a real life change of scenery. I need to drag my husband away from his work for at least a day trip to Charlottesville. You can bring a picnic to the grounds of Monticello, and bring your dog too, if leashed. The grounds and gardens there are lovely. The weather is warm here, too. What happened to spring? I'm wearing Patou Eau de Joy edp this evening. Jasmine suits this weather well.

    Here in Virginia, we are setting heat records for days now. I, like lilybelle, turned to Joy this morning, but this afternoon am going Alien Aqua Chic--I kinda like the vibe from this one for a hot afternoon IN MARCH (85 degrees here and normal is mid-50's to low 60's).

    I am heading out for an evening walk along the river. Maybe do some photography and get back to art making. Writing, my love, tends to wear on my neurons after a while and makes me crave fresh air and dirt.
