    Default SOTD: Thursday 27th September 2012

    Morning my loves,

    Another cold cold one up here this morning.

    I'm expecting scents in the mail today but I'm not sure if I will wait for them or apply a frag now....

    If I do decide to spray before the mail it will be: Dior Homme (vintage)


    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Sounds like fun, have a good time, Gandhajala!

    SotA is Frederic Malle Noir Epices. I really like the orange and rose beginning and it gets even better when the spice and wood start coming through.





    Have a great day!

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in Dior Addict again, so here's another fabulous René Gruau illustration for Dior.





    That definitely sounds like something you'd enjoy ...have a great time gandhajala!

    Oh ((Wolfie)), about Fleurs de Bulgarie - you also introduced me to it, so I have you to thank for that one, too ...and I always think fondly of you when I wear it.

    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.

    I'm testing SL Santal Majuscule today. I think I like it, then a stray "sweaty BO" note will pop in and I think I don't like it ... then it smells really good and then that phantom yucky note will appear again. It's taking me for a ride today. Or maybe it's just my imagination as I don't recall anyone mentioning a sweaty BO note when reviewing this fragrance.

    G, the London meetup sounds like great fun! Have a good time report back, please.

    hugs to everyone ...

    Danny, that's excellent. I love how our peeps post images that speak to their way of thinking. I've come to count on Kumquat's expressive artistic finds and Hedonist's snapshots and, oh, the flowers and advertisements you folks find.

    On a gray and chilly day, I'm r-e-a-l-l-y enjoying layering a little of this:

    I'm wearing Tam Dao today -- the 3rd day in a row. Those who know me will say, "Uh oh." And they'd be right.

    It's been a while since I've posted. The last 8 weeks have been packed with the kind of life change events about which psychologists say more than one or two per year will emotionally stress a person. I've had a minimum of 4. In 8 weeks. I'd say there's been some emotional stress.

    I won't go through all of them (you all know about the divorce trial and settlement), but I'll hit two of the most recent and significant -- one great and one horrible.

    The great one -- I sold the house and even signed the initial offer papers on the day of the 17th wedding anniversary. And I'm more than OK with that. It had a wonderfully-pleasing symmetry. The buyers got one hell of a deal, and we took a bath, but I don't even care. It's the only offer we've had since we listed it on June 1, 2011, and it's the only time there was even sustained interest. Without that offer, I could easily have been paying for it for another year. The sale closes on the 4th, and I'm terrifically happy about it.

    Now for the horrible. Yesterday, I had to put down my beloved 11.5 year-old Bearded Collie, Dugan. (I'll post a picture tomorrow.) A tumor apparently had been growing in or near his intestines for the last 3-6 months without any obvious symptoms until Tuesday morning when he became very ill. He spent the day at the vet's, showing completely normal bloodwork and just getting re-hydrated. I brought him home at the end of the day with directions to come back Wednesday morning so they could do some scans. He crashed around 10:00pm Tuesday. After one of the worst nights of my life, when he was in so much pain he couldn't find a way to lie down for more than 30 seconds without crying and having to move, I called my vet at home at 6:00 am, and she opened up the clinic for me early. I took him in, and they ran more bloodwork (which then showed the massive system crash) and did the scan which is when they saw the tumor. Dugan had systemic lupus (fairly rare in a dog), but he had been asymptomatic for almost 4 years. But the lupus, his advanced age, and the pain he was in made him a terrible candidate for extensive surgery, and I immediately opted to end his suffering. He was euthanized, dying in my arms yesterday morning. My morning routine and exiting of the apartment this morning, without any need to tell him to be a good a boy and that I'd be home soon, was just heartbreaking.

    So I've been in my most comforting of comfort scents for 3 days.

    What I'm really hoping for now is a quiet, uneventful last 3 months of the year. I could use some down-time.

    (((((Alityke))))) It sounds like you've been having a rough go of it, too. Here's hoping for better days ahead.
