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..."

good morning, sunny & bright day in london, wishing you a good thursday.
what a blast of (candied) lemon:
Ladymurasaki - Marlene Dietrich and Tabac Blond. What class ! I'll be out and about in town tonight too - I'll keep my nostrils open for you (that doesn't sound quite right, but you know what I mean).
Going with Mouchoir de Monsieur today.
Have a lovely Thursday, all.
Good morning dearest Roberto! Smelling gorgeous as usual.
The last of the BEX London samples for me. EC2 today. Fabulous opening, lemon and lime, they say also grapefruit, but more lemon & lime for me, also cardamom which is great, (aromatic lemony herbal), the vetiver is already there. It is very salty at this stage, has a seaside feel, there is actually something of Sel Marin (but denser), and of Se de Vetiver (but less rasping) there. It settles down into a woody salty vetiver. Really nice. Guess what? This one is meant to suggest the Thames Spice Wharfs. Yeah Ok, but more seaside-y though. My equal favourite with W1X. I hope that these do well.
Since it's Mona di Orio's birthday today, I've decided to wear Mona di Orio Tubereuse in memory of Mona.
good morning. last day of Chanel Antaeus for me.
Hello! I'm wearing Chanel nr 19 and I can't smell it because I've got a cold. But I'm sure that I smell good.
Good morning all !. Danny's "sunny and bright" didn't last very long here - now replaced by grey and drizzle. Jo Malone Black Vetyver Cafe spritzed and a double espresso consumed. Onward ...

Afternoon all. Getting in time off work mode so need a freshener to brace me for 1.5 more days work Sisley Eau de Campagne fresh citrus, grass and tomoto stem geen blast. Short lived but I don't mind reapplying for the zesty wake up call
Hermes Caleche Eau Delicate, thanks to Twolf for a sample. My husband really likes it(multiple compliments).. and I do too, so, really good job Twolf!. Thanks!
Once again, to the ceramics studio in Myrurgia Maderas de Oriente.
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
Am trying Keiko Mecheri Taomine from a sample. Starts out good, but let's see how it developes.
kalli, I love that Hermes - one of JC Ellena's best flankers IMO.

Good morning! We're going to be heading off to a juried annual craft show in the area a bit later.
Instead of my usual SotD I'll be spritzing myself with Verbena Sorbet Refreshing Mist (non-alcohol) to stay cool. However, yesterday's storms did reduce the oppressive humidity somewhat.

Hello everyone! Back in the saddle after my cold/bronchitis I went scentless for many days due to lack of enthusiasm - and the fact that I could not smell a thing between all the coughing.
TDC Boid d'Iris today.
Hi, gang! In Ramon Monegal's Impossible Iris today, the happiest iris I know! My budget is very angry with that naughty Foustie right now!
The nose wants what it wants!
Wearing a dab of the decant of Panthere de Cartier on the wrist that was gifted to me for my birthday/graduation. Liking Panthere de Cartier it is hot, and I wanted a cooler scent, and Jujy you were very right I totally get the cold perfume vibe it even feels cool on the skin, it's very hot and muggy out with grey clouds. <3 happy thursday everyone.
Update: did have to reapply a tiny dab, relaxing indoors with Anna Karenina now.

Rafting by Galimard
SOTD: Sartorial by Penhaligon's.
In honor of the first bottle sold. Wearing my Orange Cologne in Parfum concentration. If I am being honest, this is much more than a cologne. The cologne accord is tucked away in there among Clementine CO2, Orange Essence, Naval Orange, Sweet Orange, Bergamot, Rose Otto, Geranium CO2 , Jasmine, Oakmoss, Fir Balsam, Patchouli CO2, Haitian Vetiver CO2, Tonka Bean Absolute. This one is actually about 80% Organic CO2's. The Tonka Bean Absolute actually stretches this one out to an all day evolution. From the leaves, fruit and pulp down to the bark and grass around it. I am very excited today.
Me, too, Herbert. Me, too.
Received this pic of Herbert yesters. He belongs to my daughter's friend. His eyes ALWAYS have this anxious look about them, and he's got a rep for gravity-obvious positions. Here, he looks mournful about the weather.
I like that coffee scene, Jon. And I think you smell wonderful in BVC. I'm not smelling too bad myself, wearing ICONOfly Attache-Moi for the first time since the warm weather set in.
Hope you're all having a non-Herbert-like day.

House twins with PerfumedLady in Ramon Monegal's Quirelle. Thank you Foustie!
Wooznib - I can't even imagine how Parfum version of your cologne smells like, must be heavenly!

Started the day in Gucci Envy, which I have come to notice *does not suit me at all*--I love it in concept as the Little Shop of Horrors green scent and on paper, but one hour on my skin and --oh catbox!
Scrubbing over lunch, then running into the beautiful arms of Portrait of a Lady
Sampling Ineke's Derring Do again today. Been a while.
Derring doesn't do that much for my nose on my skin. Opens on a light hesperedic note with light green overtones and quickly goes to the base of woods and musk. Musk is one of the few notes I'm not wild for and it overtakes the woods pretty quick. Remember now why it's along time between samplings.
What can I do for the evening.....?

Welcome back home Cello !
Quarry - Herbert is a gorgeous cat- he's so lovely and cuddly looking.
This afternoon, it's No.22. I've been very busy this morning !
Today it was Narcotic Venus by Nasomatto - just adore the tuberose note in this hot weather.
Chanel 19 Poudré. This is a great daytime scent for Florida. Tonight I'll go for something narcotically tropically floral.
What a wonderful thread today
Fleur du Male for bedtime.
Thierry Mugler's Aman
Going to bed enveloped in the fume of Tabac Blond... night night...

This evening I am in Ubar .
Have a good one, everyone and hugs for Primrose.

Started out in Vega today -- always up for learning the great classics.
Ended the day with some Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare by Creed.
