    Hello all,
    It's summertime here... my dad is coming for the long weekend (bridge day for me and Tuesday public holiday). Eating out, barbecue, wine and wine again, mint juleps, relaxing in the sun (in the shade that is)... quite a heavy agenda I know
    Sous le Vent to welcome the really summery temps today!
    You know I am such a happy person sitting and eating outside at night... I am easy to please.
    Enjoy your weekend!

    Bandit, because it's the only leather one I have, and then it's only a teeny sample.

    Oh My oh my oh my oh my! *gasp* Scent rivals, uhuh, with our own Gandhajala in Xerjoff Homme.

    Recommended by the extraordinarily talented and lovely gentleman that we know as Darvant, as one of the best Iris/Leather fragrances. It is glorious.

    This is sometimes described by the guys as really butch. I don't agree with that, not on me anyway. I think that on a woman it is lushly, plushly, rich and sensuous. Cello, Perfumedlady, G, L, I think you would loooooove...

    My cat woke me up early-- 5 a.m. Couldn't get back to sleep. SotD is YSL In Love Again...again.

    I'm off to Mom's to give her her meds. I've been having to go over there multiple times per day to dispense her meds as she has become dangerously unreliable (forgets the meds, takes the wrong day's meds, takes too many doses at one time, etc.) Having researched a possible solution, I've ordered a MedReady pill dispenser. This thing is pretty cool-- it's a powered carousel (AC with back-up battery) that can be programmed with times for any 28 doses (in Mom's case, 4x/day x 7 days). At the correct times for the meds, an alarm goes off and a light flashes, and all the person has to do is slide a little door open to get the correct dose for that time. The door closes on its own and it advances to the next dose automatically. There's no way for the person to take the wrong dose or too many doses, and the alarm doesn't stop until the person opens the compartment, so it's not easy to ignore. (I just hope she doesn't take a hammer to it, LOL!)

    Mom also had a fall a couple of days ago, but didn't tell me about it-- I discovered it when I saw the gash on her elbow when showering her. She lost her balance after hopping off the elevated toilet seat (installed when she broke her hip last October.) It seems her feet didn't reach the ground when she was sitting, but she'd never told me she was having a problem with it. I promptly had the elevated seat removed, leaving the grab bars attached. I hope there won't be any more falls...but I sprouted a few more gray hairs this week.

    Good morning everyone!

    I'm out of sync too - most of my leathers are a bit too smouldering and sensuous for my current mood. Jazz Fest starts today and I thought something more cheerful and vivacious would fit the bill, so I'm in Guerlain's Insolence. Y'all have a fantastic day!

    I really have no clue if I am in sync or not ! Well right now, I am wearing Petite Cherie EDP layered with Diorissimo EDT. Actually a fab combination of sweet and tart.

    SotE - Roja Dove Unspoken Parfum.




    Am I in synch ?. I am unaware of leather being part of the note pyramid but I definitely detect a smoked leather vibe in the base. Maybe it's my nose, maybe I'm cheating a little - Cuir Mauresque would have been too predictable - in synch !.

    Maitre Parfumer et Gantier- Cuir Fetiche

    I'm wearing this for leather synch day. It starts out leathery and somewhat floral-powdery with the ylang-ylang jumping forward. The initial leather wears off after a bit and the ylang-ylang really hangs on. It definitely has a powdery accord. Maybe not suitable if you prefer a more butch leather approach. This is the opposite of Mona di Orio's, Les Nombres d'Or - Cuir, ​for instance.

    No synch yet for me. I’m not much of a leather fan unless it is very, very subtle and later in the day/evening.

    For now, it’s a dab of Bourbon French Musk oil. I’ll leather up later.

    Gosh I'm joining in very late today but long weekend for me, sad occasion of strewing the ashes of my stepfather in law on Monday. It would have been his 90th birthday. Then taking mum in law out for a slap up lunch.

    Synched in Cuir de Russie from a sample. Scent triplets with Gandhajala and Ineespenes. Mmmmmm... Spent the day sniffing myself.

    Thanks to all for the hugs.

    MIL now has too much time on her hands and constantly worries about nothing. I hope she is able to grieve when this final ceremony is over. He died last November but she hasn't been able to move on much as this spreading of his ashes has been hanging over her. It was suggested by the Undertakers (more money for them) but I don't think it's healthy as it holds up the grieving process and prolongs it.

    Sorry rant over
