    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..."

And now it is!

    I'm missing a lot these days! Today I missed that I twinned myself with Astrud in Songes - how delightful! I'm also in the edp and I completely agree that it's not too strong, even for the hottest days. I used to shy away from them, but I've really grown to adore rich and sultry tropical florals in the summer. Anyway, you smell wonderful!!

    Good Morning. This morning I am in another of my own. A Vetiver I have been working on for some time. I am trying to keep this one as true to the Vetiver as possible. This one has light accents of Tobacco, Tolu, Tonka, and Gardenia. So far, a favorite. I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th yesterday. I wore this Vetiver last night as well and received a few compliments.

    And I can't wait for the great matches coming up tomorrow on the men's side. Mrs. E will be watching, I'm sure. I'm taking off work just to glue myself to the TV screen.

    Shhhhhhhhh ... I just sneak-applied JM Fresh Mint Leaf -- not popular with DH. He's got a bit of a cold, so maybe he won't notice I'm wearing some of my favorite notes.



    Lily-grandiflora-belle, the magnolia is a foreign flower to this prairie girl. Thank you for helping imprint an understanding with your engaging story.

    Good to see KarmaLee has electricity in Virginia.

    Good job beating down that ear infection, Jon.

    Cooling vibes to poor Twolf, having to move in this gawdawful heat.

    Thanks to all who wished U.S. happy birthday -- especially you good-sport Brits. It's really very magnanimous of you, considering that whole revolution thing. Hope everyone understood that Shadesofbleu was relating a 4th of July tradition of barbecuing bratwurst and not interrogating children with her mention of “grilling brats.”

    BAL A VERSAILLES

    No matter what, provided it is the right vintage, I simply marvel every time I put this on. To me, there just isn't anything as "Natural" for me to wear. Though it's my winter scent, I crave it so much that I often sneak some in the height of summer. The invitees to this "Bal" are all of my friends, and all of my people, and the ghosts and spirits of everyone I have admired: The *only* scent I have ever found to compare with Jicky. (Only problem: Vintage must be right. If interested, I have them broken down in my review of it on Fragrantica)
