    Love them, wooznib!!!

    Rose of the Day is a Bulgarian oil rose 'Trigintipetala', needless to say the smell is divine.



    Lots of garden work done this afternoon, still 'cleaning up' last winter's damage.

    Tonight I'm in Vega - Guerlain. Dinner canceling in place today (I will take you up on that offer to send a few pounds per airmail, G. ), but I do look forward to my Sobranie...

    Best to all

    Bendelirious for me today.

    It is so quiet around the neighborhood today, it's almost eerie.

    You would definitely enjoy New Zealand, Ine.

    We saw 3 species there (White, White-faced, and Reef) regularly around the rivers and estuaries near my sister's home in Christchurch. (Not my photos either !)

    We also get the regular Grey Herons occasionally here at our garden pond.

    Thanks for the welcome I am lusting afte Beige and Eau de Cologne so badly right now. I went to a Chanel counter and had one sprayed on each arm. It was fantastic! The only not so great thing I noticed was that Eau de Cologne faded after about 2 hours of wear. Still it was delicious enough that I wouldn't mind having to reapply!

    Huh! Portland keeps staying on my radar. Even our fave TV shows reference it (Grim and Awake).

    Hiya and welcome to the rabbit hole rafraich and zubi!

    Quarry- Ever watched the TV show Portlandia??? check it out. It's a hoot.

    I love herons- in an undeveloped field across the street from my workplace, they come to hunt. I keep trying to sneak up on them to take photos. The co-workers tell me how entertained they are watching my efforts to sneak up on them.

    Yes, today is a holiday here and I am avoiding the mall and the highway.

    I am sampling from Sonoma Scent Studio today thanks to a dear and generous Basenoter, 30 Roses.

    I'm back from our weekend get away to Kansas City ... I had the opportunity to visit the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum. One of the special exhibits was decorative arts of the World's Fairs. It was very cool!
    If you are interested: http://www.nelson-atkins.org/art/exh...airs/home.html

    My scent today is my newly purchased Bond Andy Warhol. It was totally spontaneous, as I had planned to buy High Line ... best laid plans and all. The plum and incense notes got me!
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Today was the second day of Shavuoth, so there was yizkor, the memorial service for our departed, at my synagogue. I wore Guerlain Iris Ganache IMO mother, father, sister, and others. I've set this fragrance aside for memory. It is pensive and beautiful.
