    Happy Easter to those who celebrate and to those who celebrate today!

    I am braving Rubj by Vero Profumo, and Mr. W. likes it. Whoa! This boy has an expensive taste (well, so do I, I'm afraid), but our expensive tastes do not always match I will think what to do about that.

    Wolfie, 320?
    Foustie, what a cute story. I think Les Exclusives is a grand plan, go for it girl! Well, girlz

    Larimar, I hope that thread reappears soon. I want to read it!

    Mimi, I think somebody crossed a bunny with a moose!

    Foustie, that is the cutest story.

    I have my little NZ lamb roast in the oven, and a pan of mixed root veggies. It smells yummy, getting hungry.

    SotA is Insolence edt.

    I contacted a mod with regard to my thread. It shows up when searched, but the link is invalid. If it's gone, it's gone as I don't save my threads. It's as simple as that.
    No, Wolfie, I will post the culinary delights here, in particular now that threads seem to disappear magically.

    Happy Easter to those celebrating, and Happy Birthday to Kiliwia Junior!

    We're joining some friends for a potluck brunch. I'm taking my special minted fruit salad and I will be wearing Beige.

    Mr Ali and I share a unique scent today, Sawdust and Righteous Sweat! After finishing laying the oak floor and wire wooling the vintage dresser and doing the relevant cleaning, we are both now chilling watching a film. Too tired to move but pleased with our accomplishments

    I spend the morning with my horse, riding and fooling around, so was doused in ''Eau de Cheval'', spend the afternoon in Aperçu Houbigant.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    Good afternoon all,

    I have a few minutes break. Mom has been here for lunch and now we're taking her for a drive to see the daffodils in Meriden's Hubbard Park again, before driving her home. We've been watching The Gods Must Be Crazy II and laughing till our sides ached.

    SotD is Diabolo Rose-- the mint note went very nicely with the roast leg of lamb with mint jelly that I served.

    I'm stuck home with shin splints. Ballgame on the radio and at last the sun has come out, so I'm bringing the outdoors in with Oscar de la Renta's Volupte, a lovely green floral. All that and the NYT crossword puzzle.

    Happy Easter! I am new here. I originally intended to wear Frederic Malle Lys Mediterranee today, since it seems exactly like Easter lilies to me, but I ended up trying my Ormonde Jayne Ta'if sample and I am in love--so warm on a chilly day.

    For those of you who wore lily scents, did you do so for Easter?
    Kiliwia—Happy Birthday to your daughter! It's my baby sister's 18th today, and my 7-year-old is tremendously excited that her birthday is on Easter; she thinks it is the bee's knees.
    Foustie—your niece sounds darling!
    Hedonist222—Ooh, Idole de Lubin is one I want to try.
    Hanauni—minted fruit salad sounds wonderful!

    It is nice to be here! I look forward to getting to know you all!

    Ode Guerlain today, two drops left from a TPC sample. I really loved this one. I wished it was re-issued, sigh!

    Larimar, I am sorry you cannot find your thread. I was looking forward to reading it, especially after reading your post in the SOTD yesterday:

    "Thank you all for your kind welcome back and thoughts while I was away (Wolfie, Mims, PerfumedLady). I had a FANTASTIC time in Paris, ate deliciously (a lot), did squeeze in more perfume trails in my agenda than foreseen - Guerlain, Maitre Parfumeur, Caron, Francis Kurkdjian, Serge Lutens / Palais Royale. I will be back with a boring much of information and thoughts soon. No scent of the day yet as I am lying in the hot bath tub typing this. My SotD will be Vega, which I fell madly and crazily in love with on the spot... and this comes from me, who does not really like No. 5 Vega is already decanted and ready to be spritzed. While we are at it... I also bought Eau pour le Jeune Homme ( Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier )... huh, I feel so flattered (I found MY Eau de Cologne) and Francis Kurkdjian's Elixirs de Lumiere Noire Femme. Needless to say, I was a bad boy exceeding my budget... Smooches and hugs all around (if welcome)! Poor kewart, I wish your time of being painfree again was coming up right now! Best wishes!"

    In sort of a sad, bittersweet mood this Easter, but all in all it was a wonderfully beautiful day. I wore some Concentree d'Orange Verte from a sample (thank you Larimar) this morning to breakfast, then I came back home and had a nap (I love doing that some weekend afternoons). Then I spent the rest of the day lounging about, doing absolutely nothing. TOnight sampling:

    Cepes & Tuberose by Aftelier (from a sample - thank you Renee)



    All the weird and animalic things in nature, heightened. Not sure if this is something I would reach for on a regular basis (the tuberose is very strong...almost bordering on headache-inducing) but the strangeness is alluring.

    This evening after all the activity and the day that got hotter and hotter.......
    I jumped in a cold shower and then sprayed on Santa Maria Novella's Acqua di Colonia liberally . In fact I'm going to have me several more sprays soon ...... With the A/C on - it's bliss !

    Lilltle K and mama -- Happy Birthday to you both, although I imagine that little K is not very little any more. \
    Foustie
    -- do take her with you to the Chanel boutique, wonderful story, more to come.

    L. -- bummer and very sorry about it.

    As for the cupcakes, so far Warum is the closest with her guess of 320. In fact, she is the only one who guessed. LOL I will wait until tomorrow morning to reveal but again, she is quite close to the actual number and no, it is not 300.

    Anat, nice you have decided to delurk and started posting. Welcome.

    Infusion Organique Buddha Fig this evening. Need some light but enveloping warmth, especially in the lower back, but behind the ears with the wrists will do too.

    In a crazy shift of mood I reached out for Bronze Goddess. about this time a year I start craving beach. Sigh.

    Wolfie, I did not submit Mr. W's guess, but he was guessing about a 100 less than I did. I bet your lower back needs something. (((Hugs)))

    (((Mikeperez))), thanks for saying it. Same mood this Easter here, but the day was quiet and good.

    Very sorry I could not read L's thread. I am always interested in reading about travels to Paris.
