    Stultifyingly hot and humid and the mercury is expected to climb to 100F by the afternoon. I am wearing a few dabs of Egyptian Goddess, it's about all I could stomach today.

    Stay cool and hydrated, fellow heat afflicted friends and best to all xo

    I think it's about time he took the plunge. A word of advice though, Lucasai - Jicky is potent stuff and a couple of sprays can make you completely irresistable.

    Agree. Cacio has both taste and generosity.

    Well, testing Musc Rav by Malle today...I was wondering what my hubby would think..so I am like..'what do you think of THIS one?!' After I had been sniffing it happily for over an hour. He grunted..I said, 'you don't like it?' He grunted again..now mind you he's not into scents like I am. After that second grunt, he's like..'is that cinnamon in there?'. I was like, ya..he's like, 'it smells like cinnamon and road kill'. . He was kind of joking but kind of serious at the same time. I felt like Mario dying in Super Mario Bros. Oh well, lol..at least he loves Lipstick Rose..we agree on that one!.



    I gotta admit, I kinda wish the cinnamon was toned down a bit in the Rav, just as I don't like too much cinnamon in my fumes. A little is fine for my taste..a lot is not really my thing. Feel the same way with Spicebomb...way too much cinnamon in that one for me. But the Rav is nice.

    Jujy54, that’s cute! ^^^

    Ineespenes, I’m glad you’re feeling better.

    Ladymurasaki, I hope you have a great time in Paris! Please tell us about your trip when you get back so we can enjoy the vicarious thrill.

    Cacio also makes great fragrance recommendations.

    Kalli, don’t feel like you’re alone. My husband doesn’t share my enthusiasm either.

    Estee Lauder Pure White Linen this afternoon to beat the heat. It’s the first time I’ve worn this in ages, and it still pleases me. It holds up very well, too.

    Layered Serge Lutens Santal Blanc with a teeny bit of Parfum d'Empire Aziyade.... YUM! On my skin the Aziyade smells of little to no cumin, and simply reminds me of Arab cola-sweets I used to eat when I was little. The Santal Blanc has a note that is similar to that, but fleeting, so I decided to strengthen it a bit. I could eat myself if I was a cannibal and had nothing to live for!

    Perfume appeals to my nose the way music appeals to my ears, exquisite food to my taste buds, photography to my eyes, and great loving from my man to my sense of touch.

    I can safely conclude, then, that PERFUME IS ART in its purest form.

    As an artist, I therefore have a responsibility to buy as much perfume as I can. You know, to learn about art and all.

    My bf's first sniff of Santal Blanc was "smells like fermented eggplant", though he agreed with my (and Robin's from NST) comment that the drydown is a very nice pencil.

    @JonRodgers, LOL! we keep a few chickens and one thing I've noticed is if you run toward them, they scatter; but if you run away from them they run after you like their little lives depend on it.

    Today in the slam-dunk combo of the Body Shop mango lotion and the Mure Et Musc Extreme.

    I am hoping that my man's newfound love for the Mure Et Musc Extreme will incent him to employment so that he can buy me a replacement, it's almost gone! As previously noted, I have had to revise my assessment of the MME, it still smells like kindergarten teacher safe perfume to me but apparently it either smells different to men, or it smells the same but they find it sexy. I have lately gotten oddly strong reactions to this, all positive but some a little improper

    This afternoon I am wearing the truly lovely Sage Moonstone oil which is gardenia par excellence .It really captures the scent of ripe blooming gardenia in the breeze of the afternoon. Truly it's the best- surpasses Kai and anything else dressed up as gardenia.

    It's good stuff, lilybelle -a tad short wearing but worth it for that gardenia.

    This evening , I doused myself in Peche Cardinal . It's so weird how one grows used to the coconut note. Now it's barely perceptible to me - just a peachy drink.

And guess what life-size persona they have sitting on the bench? That creepy clown! SO weird, like there's just this bench with a RM on it. No other signs that children might live there..maybe I don't recall but why a life-size RM on a bench. It looked like something ripped right off a McDs. Plastic, waxy looking, creepy! If I see it again, I will take a pic. Weird, random and funny.
    Is it near a hospital? It could be a Ronald McDonald House ... a wonderful place that helps sick kids and their families. At my old hospital, the RMH had a large Ronald outside.
