    Jon your view is stunning. Enjoy, enjoy.

    Today I am privileged to try Tom Ford Private Collection Moss Breches. The opening is fabulous, cool in tone, and really quite old fashioned. It is lovely. I will tell you this though, it is not nearly as tenacious as most of the other TF's. Mind you, were it not for the cost, and the scarcity, I would want to drench myself in this.Thank You for giving me the opportunity to try this Haunani.

    Happy Birthday to our celebrants today!!

    Caught up with quite a few of these characters today - pretty fortunate as they can sometimes be frustratingly elusive. Plenty of seals and even a distant view of a pair of dolphins.




    SotE - Xerjoff Uden.


    FAO culinary experts Larimar and Gandhajala, evening meal menu reads as follows -


    First Courses

    Butternut Squash
    Creamed butternut squash soup with
    toasted seeds and chives
    Looe Scallops
    Pan-fried scallops with braised globe artichoke,
    Autumn vegetable ragout and cauliflower purée
    Launceston Pig’s Cheek
    Open ravioli of Cornish pig’s cheek with
    broad beans, pancetta and red wine sauce
    Courgette & Tomato
    Marinated courgette with spiced aubergine chutney,
    tomato dressing and cress salad


    Main Courses

    Bodmin Lamb
    Roast rump of Cornish lamb with confit shoulder,
    crushed potatoes, green beans and rosemary sauce
    Atlantic Seabass
    Pan-fried fillet of sea bass with tortellini of tiger prawns,
    roasted peppers and shellfish sauce
    West Country Venison
    Roast Loin of Cornish venison with
    wild mushroom duxelle, celeriac purée and venison jus
    St Claire Isles Salmon
    Slow roasted fillet of organic salmon with crushed new potatoes,
    young carrots, mussel and herb nage
    Wild Mushroom
    Open ravioli of sautéed wild mushrooms with
    asparagus, chive flowers and mushroom sauce

    Desserts

    Pineapple and Vanilla
    Vanilla crème brûlée with poached pineapple,
    banana and passion fruit sorbet
    Chocolate and Caramel
    Warm dark Valrhona chocolate fondant
    with salted butter ice cream
    Rhubarb and Apple
    Baked egg custard tart with poached rhubarb
    and Granny Smith sorbet
    Cheese
    Selection of Cornish Cheese served

    ^ But Jon, I eat like that every night. Doesn't everyone ?
    Seriously though, what an amazing day: Puffins, seals, and Rhubarb & Apple for desert. Does life get any better ?

    SotE is vintage Chanel Cuir de Russie (EdT).

    Best to all!

    Jon, what a great day with such pictures, such a menu, and smellies Have fun and enjoy yourself as much as possible! Please!

    Happy Birthday, Luna and Mr. G!

    I am in bed -- sick as a dog, got my husband's bug, but my sense of smell is intact. Am wearing Bakir extrait by Ava Luxe from a sample -- thanks, PerfumedLady! I really like this one. I said my aahs and oohs when I tried it yesterday, and giving it a full wear today. Like.

    Birthday wishes for Actiasluna and Mr. G!

    Hope you feel better soon, Warum. It seems like something is going around again, which seems so weird given the warm winter.

    I'm wearing Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia today-- it's just so pretty!

    Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!

    Jon - you're killing me with that menu .
    Basenotes - you're killing me with the on- off thing. I just managed to get in with Tapatalk now so I guess we're 'on' again .

    Jon (sigh!)!! What a lovely get away! I love your puffins. That menu looks yummy, and I just came from a big Vietnamese lunch a while ago. I’m supposed to be dieting, but if presented with your menu this evening I would definitely have another go. Venison for me.

    I couldn’t get on Basenotes earlier either, Mims. I did go for Insolence edt today, and no regrets about it at all. I love this fragrance lately. I’ll probably have another spritz for this evening.

    Well Jon, since it seems there aren't any fresh puffin specialties on the menu, the choice is clear - scallops, then sea bass, then the pineapple and vanilla crème brûlée. Easy-peasy!

    Your Vietnamese lunch sounds good too, lilybelle - yum! But speaking of dinner, we're having a crab boil on the beach in a little while, and Dad's got the blender going to get the party started, so this is waiting for me at the moment -



    And I'm in Dune for the rest of the day. Y'all have a wonderful evening!


    Warum - that sounds terrible! I hope you're feeling much better soon.

    mike - I have those same Crabtree & Evelyn colognes in violet and lilac, but now I wish I would have gotten the lavender while they were still available. I love the sweet vintage-y labels, too!
    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

    Poor Warum! Feel better soon! Glad you like Bakir; I still ahh and ooh when I wear it. It's a unique one. Very green and oriental (possibly leaning chypre?) with loads of gorgeous florals, esp. that rose note. Deep and mysterious, to my nose.


    Back to my citric cologne sampling mini spree in Atelier Trefle Pur. Happy and sparkly on a nice mossy base but the neroli goes a little hissy on me at times. That's this skin, though; overall a very nice scent.

    Jon, your getaway looks and sounds wonderful! Glad you're enjoying it!

    Gandhajala, you smell delicious. Eau de Patou is one of the loves of my life (perfume-wise).

    Jon R, love that picture, I wished I was there

    Mimi you have been wearing my favorite tuberose even though it is called Fleur D'oranger. That is the best presentation of white flowers anywhere bar none!

    Everyone smells DIVINE!

    Reglisse Noire today. It is nearly, but not quite, time to put this away for the summer. Lovely and shining in the cold weather (well cold is a relative measurement, FL cold.) but not really good in the very hot time.

    Jon, please enjoy your time. The menu is great with the exception of the desserts: while I see some of them compliment main courses quite nicely, the main ideology is totally absent: two icecreams, a fruit tart and a cheese platter? Cheese should be in its own category, while the fourth dessert is clearly missing. Again, what's in season: rhubarb and that's it? If I were to choose it would be: eggplant, salmon and NOTHING for rounding up the meal. Color me unsatisfied and soliciting own services.

    Until today I had no idea what "puffins" were, I thought they were related to muffins, p'haps?

    Lalique Perles is ma drouge with no visible side effects.

    Ok, correction.

    I said yesterday I almost liked Jessica Simpson's Fancy Nights more than Midnight Poison Elixir. I don't know WHAT the heck I was thinking, lol. As I just tested the FN again, and it's nowhere near the quality of course and much worse!...plus the Fancy has something in it that doesn't *really* doesn't agree with me. What the heck? Is it the papyrus?
