    Default SotD: Sunday 29th April 2012

    Good morning - or not !. Woke up to a whole day of rain yesterday, rained overnight, any guesses what I'm seeing out of the window now ?. I'ts more like the back end of November here but we do need it so I suppose complaints should be at a minimum.

    Something to combat the dreary damp -







    SotD is SL Iris Silver Mist

    Morning all. Grim here too, very grey, windy and wet. AP Maitresse for me today.

    Good morning,
    Mouchoir de Monsieur for me this morning. It zipped through its progression like nothing and I can smell the faint remainders of last night's En Avion again. I will think of a Scent of the Midday.
    Enjoy your Sunday!

    Yorkshire is expecting a months worth of rain in 24 hrs at present. April was already the wettest on record with 153mm in Sheffield already by last Wednesday! We weren't in drought either.
    I'm still in yesterday's Tubereuse Criminelle dry down. Wow that's some longevity

    Got the urge for Jicky later

    I decided to roll on some Elixir de Lumiere Noire Femme (F. Kurkdjian) on my wrist. No Eau sticks with me in the summer heat. However, this is fantastic!

    Gary well done. You are awesome, and lovely too.

    So England is awash! Aw! We have sun here at the moment.

    I am floating around (literally), in Tabac Blond Extrait today. I'm totally intoxicated. I'm not one of our classicists by a long chalk, but honestly, this leaves me reeling. I love it!

    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

    It has been dismal, gray, chilly, and rainy here, too.

    Thank you for the lovely music, Jon.

    I am wearing YSL Parisienne this morning.

    Congratulations to Gary!

    Have a good Sunday, all. (Smooch)

    Yes, thanks to you I am fortunate enough to try it too! It is beautiful, luminous, ethereal, isn't it?

    For some reason I also start pulling out attars and Orientals, even Angel, much more in the summer.
    I went to sleep in En Passant. No SotD yet.

    “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.”

    Like many others, I'm going through my samples. I did a clearing out of my samples drawer and am using and pitching them! Today I'm in Limone di Sicilia by I Profumi di Firenze-- wow, talk about an intense, true lemon oil smell! But it fades rather fast.

    I think I will make a lemon pudding today and some Italian meringue to top it. Italian meringue is also known as boiled icing; it's made by slowly pouring boiling syrup (238º) over beaten egg whites, and beating until the whites are satiny smooth. This makes an excellent frosting and filling for lemon cakes, too. The whites are cooked by the syrup so there is no risk of salmonella.

    from samples
    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..."

    Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier's Jasmin. I'm so happy I bought this from the marketplace here from a very knowledgeable BN friend. This is fantastic and most of all, the jasmine smells so natural to me and not screechy white from synthetics. A summernight and jasmine... perfect!

    My daughter took this picture on a recent visit to the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Spring in St Louis is much longer than it was in New Jersey. The iris are equally stunning. I love this picture of hers and thought the color combination of this particular flower so pretty.

    SOTD is the equally stunning Xerjoff Irisss a gift sample from Mimi. (Mwah!)

    Listening to:



    The colors reminds me of irises for some reason.....go figure.

    Love that track RHM.

    Did opt for Jicky today. Felt the need for calming lavender. Mum in law been telephoning in tears, she's forgotten a few things understandably and bro in law despite being asked not to has called her out on the forgetfulness.

    SotE is likely to be Jicky dry down and the smell of the roast dinner I cooked with traces of nutmeg and vanilla from the rice pudding.
