Vintage Eau de Toilette
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..."

Hey chaps, good morning! Happy Easter! What lovely animated pics and smileys!
It's so ..... cold this morning (fill in appropriate word at your discretion) and the wind chill is terrible. It will be a warm comfy indoor Easter as far as I am concerned.
SotD is Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier's Pour le Jeune Homme. A fantastic neroli prominent Eau de cologne type fragrance that lasts 12 hours easily on me. I am so happy with this Paris purchase.
I owe you the culinary bits of my trip, but the completion of the perfumed bits is first.
Have a great day all!

L., please DO NOT let your gastronomic experiences get lost somewhere in the depths of the OT forum, post right here on the Ladies' side, please?
Gonna be a looooooooong day for me -- Sunday buffet at a restaurant (little contest, perhaps? Whoever guesses the closest to the correct number of cupcakes we (read "I" LOL) baked and decorated, will get the lightly used sample of the delicious Caron Accord 119) and then Old Folks after 4PM.
Afternoon all. New Visa today.
SotD is Acqua di Parma Colonia - something bright for a dull and wet day.
Larimar - do post about your gastronomic delights. Thanks too for the great write up of your perfumed adventures. Loved it !

Where the .... did my Paris thread - perfumed bits go? I can't find it. Do you guys still see it or know where it's been disposed at? Thanks in advance!
Good morning, and Happy Easter!
It's bright and sunny here, too! I missed the sunrise this morning, but the beach was still deserted, and the view was quite nice for my run.
I was wearing Fragonard Belle de Soleil, and it's still lingering beautifully.
Y'all have a fantastic day, and Happy Birthday to Little K!
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
I keep picturing you wearing Vega and it makes me smile.
Tell me, what were the peint main Limoges porcelain tchotchkes like Chez Caron?
I bought a heart shaped box with hand painted blue hydrangeas at another boutique. I LOVE those little riens.

Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
Well, I am off this weekend. My little niece was in town yesterday with her mum and dad. We met for lunch. She is seven. A late arrival to the family and the joy of our lives. She is beautiful. So, there she is with her handbag and all jewelled up. She thinks that you have to be "fancy" when you come to town. Good girl. So there are mischevious smiles all round as she shows me what she got earlier in the day. She had been in a Department store. She spotted some lip gloss in the sale for £2, so she asked her mum if she could have permission to buy it. (All the wee totty ones want lipgloss now, !?!? She is allowed to wear a very discreet amount on special occasions, just like a balm really, and she thinks that she is the bees knees). So her mum said that if she really wanted it she could have it if she bought it with her own money, (a rare occurence, believe me). So she did! As she was paying, the SA's thought her cute, and oooohed and aaahed, and gave her some samples. LOTS of samples. She smiled at me as she cheekily brought them out of her handbag one at a time and put them on the table, and they kept coming and kept coming. What a haul!! She also had some lovely little animated books that the SA at Nina Ricci gave her. You know the flick type? You flick the pages fast and a moving picture of a little girl picking an apple from a tree appears. She was so delighted with that, that the SA gave her MORE, which she intends to give to her best friends. Of course the little books come with matching samples. She though all of this hilarious because she knows that I love fragrance and she and I smell, play, decant, discuss when she is at my house. Really, another time she was given her own samples at Annick Goutal, including Petite Cherie, which seemed particularly nice.
So the point of the story is that the next time she is in town I will take her to the Chanel Exlusivs Counter and shove her in front of me.
Na, the point of the story is that I love her and she made my day!
And a very happy birthday to Kiliwia's little girl!!
(we celebrate next Sunday)
Happy Birthday to your daughter, Kiliwia!
Thank you for your wishes and kind words, gandhajala!
I know, from personal experience, it is a big disappointment when you can't study what you want.
But, unfortunately, it seems that young people will have to face even greater problems in the future...
I finished my sample of
Nuda - Nasomatto,this morning.
A nice jasmine but it doesn't last on me.
