    Default SOTD: Sunday 9 September 2012

    Good morning from sunny Tokyo. Autumn is creeping up on us as I notice less cicadas buzzing at night, replaced by the chirping of bell crickets.

    It's the day before I fly back to London, so I'm busy packing, getting the flat in order, etc. I'm wearing Black Peony by Satori. Hmmm, seriously good and kind of wanting to stop by Satori for a full bottle!
    Do happy

    Good Morning,

    Yet another warm, sunny day here. How wonderful that it has coincided with the weekend.
    Eau de Guerlain for now.

    Enjoy your Sunday, all.

    Good morning all !. Having a slightly peppery day so far. Molton Brown Black Pepper shower gel followed by VC&A Cologne Noire.

    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..."

    Lol, Larimar! I'm not stinking up the joint nearly so much today! CM really is loud! Knew you'd be able to smell me, sorry if I singed your nose hairs! If you'd just buy me a bottle of Lumiere Noire PF I'd smell good all the time!

    Still in Chanel but stepped it up so I could return G.'s flirt from a couple weeks ago- No.5 EDT.

    Tdem, you smell great today, too! And of course you do, Jon, I'm not about to tangle with that kind of strength! Besides, your bodyguard is one of my favorite people!

    I had a really early start to a busy day of practical tasks today, so my old staple for that type of thing, a lovely Cologne, Acqua di Genova first thing, then refreshed with SMN Acqua di Sicilia a bit later. I do love them.

    And it seems that I have been house twins (and post twins) with Kilwia, too!

    Cooler and drier today (yay!) and sunny...a really lovely day for a drive just down the road into the countryside and maybe lunch out somewhere. I'm wearing No. 5 Eau Premiere, joining PerfumedLady in the House of Chanel, which has been very kind to me this summer.

    Love to everyone.

    p.s. SotE was C&S Dark Rose. I love it, and many thanks to Mike and a big (((bear hug))) back at you, sweetie! I hope your AC is back in order. Miami and no AC! I would have been dead by now!

    No scent yet but showered last night with Robert Piguet FRACAS shower cream. It isn't as highly scented as the parfum I have but it is an absolute treat for the skin. My tube is a couple of years old, so that may have effected the scent strength.

    I've had to use two inhalers this morning; the mold count here is very high and I was out weeding yesterday.

    Good evening all. Mr Ali took me to the Royal Armouries today. A brutal modern building housing some incredible ancient craftsmanship. Saw Henry VIII actual rumour from the Field of the Cloth of Gold and Queen Bess's lover, Dudley's, armour too.

    People then were small, many of the suits of armour were for people of my height (just over 5ft) and Dudley's was one of these. Henry's would have been too tall for Mr Ali who is 6ft. He was huge for the time.

    SotD was EL Jasmine and White Moss perfect and refreshing for a sunny warm day.

    That sounds fascinating, Ali! I am a shorty, too- lots of small doorways and closets here in older American homes, which always fit me just fine!

    We are quite a fine smelling trio, Lilybelle & G.! Burned off my EDT pulling weeds and have just added another huge blast to our No. 5 cloud. Look out, atmosphere!

    Larimar! That is far too generous of you, I know you love LN, too! Only if you are positive you have enough- and if I can send you something in return. What a sweet offer but please don't short yourself!

    If I were at my Mac instead of the Kindle, I would insert a karate-flying-kick Piggy pic here. I would soooo make a great body guard for Jon.

    It's been a beautiful late summer day here. It's still 70 degrees and just a slight breeze.
    There are several deer in our yard right now, approx. 15. It's fun to watch the does with
    their fawns. They are pretty tame, my husband can feed one doe and her 2 fawns
    with apples from our trees, right out of his hand. Really wish the weather could stay
    like this for a while, but today I could hear the geese flying overhead and they are
    starting to fly south already.

    SotE is Ineke Poet's Jasmine, from a sample.

    Have been busy -- my work schedule tends to increase during the weekends -- with, ahem, work and our Blind Sniff. Planning to have fun next weekend and go out of town to a Rennaissance Fair in MN. Don't even know what to expect but anticipate sniffing candles, soaps and oils and stuff, I know not like it is going to be from Le Mason Francis Kurkdjian or something.

    We are also having a cool spell (finally!) here, enjoying the weather. By Kilian Back to Black.
