    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.
    What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!

    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.

    Happy Friday!

    Happy Anniversary to Jon's parents, wishing them a very happy day!

    SotD is Keiko Mecheri Un Jour d'Ete, with notes of Sicilian lemon, petit grain,
    mandarine, floral accord, aromatic accord, amber and musk. Smells like lemon
    with a little coconut. A very beachy and summery fragrance, smells great and
    I love the bottle too.

    Have a great day!

    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

    Oh dear. Hugs and sympathy for all who need them. I used to suffer from migraine too Alityke. It is a horrible affliction. I hope that you find a treatment which works for you.

    Smiles for those who are feeling better.

    Have a lovely celebration Jon! and Jujy' how nice that you a Beau' had lunch. Great!

    I was at the most fantastic wedding yesterday. I'll tell you about it next week. I wore Impossible Iris.

    Today is Bahiana from a sample for the synch.

    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.

    Many thanks to everyone for all the thoughtful wishes today.



    As we are dining Italian this evening I may as well go smelling Italian, therefore SotE will be ADP Colonia Intensa.







    Have a great weekend !.

    Avoiding the obvious choice - Virgin Island Water Instead I went with Ferre by Gianfranco Ferre - fruity iris. Sort of Islandish????

    Happy Friday finally!!!!!

    I'm going to see Neil Young in concert tonight. Let's see if the old boy still has it!!

    Ali, I really hope you feel better soon. xoxoxo

    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.

    Cello, how fantastic! Yes, last I saw him, Mr. Young still had it. Like Twolf and Paul McCartney, I share a birthday with Neil Young. Can't think of a better musician to share it with!

    Ali, my continued best wishes. I seem to never get by with less than 3 days with these nasty migraines. May it be gone very soon!

    G. & lucasai, glad to hear you're both feeling better!

    Happy Anniversary to the Rodgers! We know they must be lovely people if they raised Jon!

    In sync in Vanilia. Vanilla is as close to a tropical scent as I want be. Have a great Friday, gang!

    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.”

    Evening fragrant friends.

    Finally able to tolerate a full wearing of fragrance but nothing too complex. I've opted for Molinard Muguet simple, slightly citrus lotv. A tiny bit soapy but not musky. Perfect for now.

    Kiliwia - Isn't that one wonderful? It feels like a perfect match for summer in Hawaii!

    Alityke - I am glad that you are getting some relief, but I really hope that you are back to 100% soon.

    Evangeline: cool Chamade ad! Chamade always deserves more love, too.

    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.

    It would be perfect to wear in Hawaii. Now if I could talk my husband into taking another trip there so I could find out first hand, lol. I guess you'll have to do it, RainDropSparkle and let me know how it works, lol.

    It's storming outside at the moment, hope there aren't any tornadoes coming our way. I can't complain though we really need the rain.

    Wearing Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere this evening. Love this one!

    Good, hope we will have some of your weather in the morning or sooner, K. Mimi's favorite town Yankton is expecting severe weather, not us.

    Testing Garner James Sublime Magnolia. It is sublime not magnificent indeed. Chamber scent, like in music.

    Montale Jasmin pure perfume. Almost a soliflore; almost never ending! This is the biggest jasmine I have ever had or worn and just beautiful in the summer heat.
