I don't know much about medicine, but I know what I like. -- S.J. Perelman
Have all a very happy weekend
Current formulation, and i am loving it
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..."

Acqua di Parma Colonia for me today.
Have a lovely Friday, gang.
Timbuktu today. Soapy incense temple kinda day.
Downright cold here this morning (40F) so I reached for Dawn Spencer Hurwitz Perfumes Au Lait
Notes include sweet cream, French vanilla, tonka bean, warm milk, ambrette seed absolute, buttercreme accord, and Dawn's Special Formula X (which I believe is a skin scent accord.) Not as sweet as it sounds (though surely foody), with an intriguing dryish cereal/almost nutty note, and is lovely, cozy and nuzzly.
Happy Friday, all!

Hello all. My large decant of Chanel Jersey.
Dipping once again into my 6.8oz splash bottle of 80s vintage Guerlain Habit Rouge Edc.
we have seen the enemy...and he is us.-Pogo
Synching on my left arm in the new release of Diorling a chypre leather. I like this but it isn't as excitingly leathery as Azuree or as smoothly suede as Daim Blond.
On my right arm is Shalimar Parfum Initial L'Eau which is a revelation. Ugly fug of top notes but love the wonderful heart and dry down of creamy jasmine...... Num num num num num
Good morning everyone, today is Carthusia 1681 EDP

Hello everyone -
I spritzed the fresh, lush and green ivy goodness of Liz Sport for an early morning run ...and seriously y'all, it's so inexpensive and so good - I highly recommend it for anyone who likes to smell great while sweating, lol! It's completely unisex, too. But that was then and that's all gone - now I'm in the fresh, sweet and utterly charming Eau de Charlotte by Annick Goutal. Y'all have a wonderful day!
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
Good morning/day everyone YEY!!! Sure feels good to have BN back! For this sunny and almost springlike day ( despite the snow) I'm synching in CK Contradiction. Hope you all have a great day. Mine is manly all about packing..... Moving in to the new place on sunday!!!
Recovering from a cold/fever/flu/whatever-this-is, with a light spritz of the calming...

Last night an acquaintance hooked me up with about 1/2 ml of vintage Shalimar extrait, from approx 1955-1959. Now I can tell why this is a legend!
In other news, SOTD is Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir.
Happy Friday everyone !
Santa Maria Melograno this morning .
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
Today's theme being the Wild West, I am dyslexically renaming Tom Ford Tuscan Leather "Tucson Leather" -- by any other name, I'm still scent twins with Danny.
Such a pretty picture, Evangeline.

I’m wearing Jo Malone Red Roses after the gym. I’ve decided it’s western so I’m in sync.
((Hug)) to Mike, glad you’re feeling better.
Quarry, you are just so cute. You always make me smile.
Yatagan, thanks to cacio for the sample. Very badass on a woman.
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
Thanks to E. I know I had one too many on F.'s birthday. Please disregard my being pushy, rude and frivolous in regard to you all.
Where are Happy Birthday Dear Fousties I wonder? Yes, we broke down, but it is no excuse. Happy Birthday, Dear Foustie and many fragrant returns. So glad you finally get to start the thread.

Washington Tremlett Black Tie for tonight... we are back to cold, stormy and rainy weather. I should move to a desert area. I'd be happy with sunshine, blue sky and warmth all the time.
