    Parure EdT in all its perfumey glory initially and the lingering drydown. It still strikes me as one of the most 'difficult' perfumes I know yet it so intriguing and singular.
    Have a great day all! G., my friend, I hope you are feeling much better today!!!!!

    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 !. Glad to hear you are feeling improved, G .

    Big day here - my parents celebrate their wedding anniversary today so this evening's wine o'clock will be taking place inside an Italian restaurant in a nearby country village. Will have to decide on an appropriate SotE later.

    Gandhajala I am glad that you are better today.

    Jon, how lovelyl! A very happy anniversary to your parents. (that is an anniversary cake, not a birthday cake)

    SOTD is Coty Wild Woods. This oldie but goodie (and cheapie!) is a wonderful blend of smooth, sweet cedar and sandalwood with a touch of incense and pipe tobacco. It is a cologne, so wears lightly, and lasting power isn't the best but at around $10 for a 1.5 ounce spray I can hardly complain about touching up halfway through the day.

    Best to all and happy Friday!

    Exotic Islands Sync today? What better fits the theme than Bwah dez Eel? Yeah, I wore it for cello, and I can wear it for myself, right? (I remember we had a thread a few years ago if we have nick-names for our favorites and I said then "No", look at me now, I don't even remember my calling this fragrance any other way, is there any other way?).

    L., -- please elaborate, Parure "singular"? Complex and multi-faceted on this skin, difficult sometimes, always strong so a little goes a long way. But I have to be in the mood, like with almost everything else in life.

    Terry -- I loved Wild Woods back in the day. Too bad it is very hard to come by these days, innit?

    Bicycled across town to a wonderful lunch with our very young wise-beyond-years base-ist Beauxbatons13 yesterday. We sniffed first, ate later, and share a love for vintage Antilope, which was last night's bedtime scent, its decidedly old-school drydown lingering this morning. Now, what to wear when cleaning house in panic mode? Guess I'll start with a splash from my near-litre of 4711 and continue from there.

    Lucas and gandhajala, I am so happy to hear you're both feeling better!

    Alityke, I know exactly how you feel and you have my sympathies. Do you have medication specifically for the migraines, especially as you have visuals and face numbing? This can be an indication of stroke. Please have it checked out.

    Oh Jon, how lovely for your parents! Please wish them a very, very happy anniversary!

    I've been having end-of-the-world nightmares for the past few nights, oddly they all involve water. (We're in the midst of a drought). Then I wake up with migraines and chipped enamel from a tooth. I must be grinding something fierce!

    Wearing By Killian's A Taste of Heaven because I find the lavender in this very soothing. Not so tropical island-ish but just what I need right now.

    Bless you RHM for your concern. I've tried the migraine meds including injections given by the GP which gave me chest pains. It's genetic, hemiplegic migraine from my dads side. Affects men more frequently than women. I've seen the GP before as an acute and it's definitely migraine. It's getting better now.

    Thanks to all for the good wishes

    Happy Anniversary to Jon's parents! Enjoy your special celebrations and wine o'clock! My dad arrived today to stay over the weekend. We're going to a nice restaurant tonight (wine o'clock for sure ). My Jicky Extrait from a huge split arrived today. The price was sensational and the jus wonderful. So, that's my SotE!
    Wolfie, same feelings here... singular meaning there is nothing quite like it in mood and feel. It's a bit 'Lady-like' (initially), partly because it is so perfumey in the opening and while it progresses increasingly 'improper' IMO.

    Neil Young? Last I heard, he's still got it. Have a nice time.

    Is it tropical today? Naa, lol..I reached for Mon Patchouly by Ramon Monegal. Masculine obviously, pretty masculine, a bit of dark spice and powder. Almost too masculine..I think the masculinity wears off just a bit after a little while and becomes more sweet and floral. Sometimes I like patch, sometimes I don't. There's a dallop of amber in this one which I like.

    There is vanilla in this patch scent lol, close enough? I kinda like this patch scent, kinda don't..just cause I am not a huge patch fan..but like I said, really dig the powder and amber. Like I said, sometimes I am feelin patch, other times, no. Not a bad scent though..just a little masculine for me...which is off putting somewhat...smells too classic, old school aftershave for me.

    Jasmine Summer? That name makes me curious. That brand makes a leather, maybe Primrose would be interested in:

    Leather Krem- ~ a leather gourmand; with notes of Well Worn Leather, Scorched Caramel, Light Woods, Whipped Cream, and a touch of Citrus in the opening.”

    Ambre Sultan again. It is fast becoming a comfort scent for when I don't want to think about what to wear. Long after drydown, I'll probably accent it with some kind of vintage heavy-hitter for the evening out, maybe something tropical to be in Friday sych.

    leftover Mitsouko from yesterday's lunch with Jujy, still on my skin after a shower I'm thinking of applying L'heure Bleue from Jujy's decant before getting back on the bus to go home [10 hour ride through the night leaving at 2am] but I'm not sure if it's something I want to put on if I'll be around other people, because it seems very private and introverted to me. But it's going to be night time, and I'm in kind of a melancholy mood seeing as this is the end of a very good week and it's back home soon. so I'm debating that, I do have to shower and such, so I might just refresh my Mitsouko afterwards.
