    Good morning all! It's a beautiful sunny day in London... for now, at least!

    Going with Fracas today. Don't know why I've been craving summery florals, but it brings me joy, so what the heck.

    Yassou Dora. Sorry I missed you yesterday. Greetings from Scotland to your wonderful, wonderful country, the mother of Western Civilisation.

    Various Colognes today. Discovered Dr Harris and Co Arlington Cologne, a wonderful English Cologne, a much overlooked genre IMO. It has a fantastic tart sherbetty opening with great green freny notes, and also Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia Concentrada. Completely different. A robust citrus with a good dose of herbs, geranium and something (?!) unusual in the base. Neither lasts, but that is not their job, is it! They are both inexpensive. Just reapply with abandon!

    Something lush later..

    No SotD yet.

    This morning I need to take my mother to he ophthalmologist for a checkup. She's been having headaches. The CT scan taken when she fell last month was normal, so I'm wondering if she needs her eyeglass prescription updated.

    If that doesn't do it, it may be time to talk to her geriatric psychiatrist about upping her Zoloft (which resolved the headache problem she was having 2 years ago.)

    Hi everyone!

    I haven't been on much lately because my daughter was home for the weekend, which was great, we had a really good time. This week has been busy and can only be described as bizarre. On Tuesday we had high winds, with lots of blowing dirt, but the really bad part was that we were surrounded by wildfires. The worst fire was in a town 16 miles from us, they had to evacuate half the town. 11 houses and several other buildings were lost in the fire. Today, I had an early morning dentist appointment 90 miles away in Grand Forks, ND to have an implant put in. Well, we never made it there, we're in the midst of a snow storm, which started off with rain and turned to ice. We had to turn around, just not worth risking your life to get there. It's quite a large storm, we're suppose to get 10-12 inches of snow. The power has already been out twice, so I thought I better put my sotd on before it goes out for good. I have to catch up with everyones posts.

    SotD is Hermes Rose Ikebana.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Good morning everyone!

    I started my day very early with a run in my new Eau Parfumée au Thé Rouge ...it's perfect, I love it. I'm in Lady Vengeance now, also love. It's been a while since I've worn it and I'm starting to notice and appreciate the differences between this and MFK's Lumière Noire Pour Femme, both gorgeous and full-bottle worthy in my book, although I still find them remarkably similar ...must be that beautiful Kurkdjian signature.

    Y'all have a great day!




    Oh gosh, ((Kiliwia)) - sounds like quite an ordeal! A foot of snow - ugh. You stay safe and warm! (Hey, I just noticed your stunning new avatar - that's my Lipstick Rose! )
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    No scent yet, very headache-y lately. Will be fine, off to the doc in a while; she thinks I maybe need an adjustment to my migraine meds.

    Woke up to the news that Kiliwia is due for snow! Be safe and warm, same to all in the area. Best thing is to stay in during the first big snowfall of the season if possible; I like to wait until all the other crazy drivers have adjusted to navigating in the stuff!

    Jon, LOVE Le Dandy! My husband is traveling right now but he wears Le Dandy a lot......I miss him now!

    SOTD: Profumi del Forte By Night, White. Love this scent and am debating whether I would like to buy a full bottle. It's such a great balance of summer/winter to my nose, and today is starting out very cold but will still warm up to tee shirt weather by the afternoon.

    Good gracious, K. Sounds like the apocalypse! According to weather trends, you and I are supposed to have a relatively mild winter, but the Eastern Seaboard is supposed to get buried.

    I'm dusting like a hyper vigilante. An author is coming over today to interview me for a chapter in her book about people who are working to make a difference in the ecological landscaping movement. I don't know if this will be a small thing or a big thing.

    How to smell ... how to smell? Malone's Mint Leaf seems right--right? Overthinking everything. It's a good thing she's using a tape recorder cuz I think I'm going to prattle on like Robin Williams on speed.

    Kiliwia, my goodness!! Wind, fire, ice, and snow? The weather gods sure know how to toy with us here in the Great Plains/Midwest, don't they? We're supposed to get down to the 20s tomorrow night! Brrrr!

    PerfumedLady, I hope you get to feeling better. Kewart, I'm glad you're on the mend!

    30R, it seems like your poor mom can't catch a break, health-wise. I'm hoping she can get things cleared up and settle into a period of no health events. Hang in there.

    RHM, be strong. I'm sorry things are rough right now with your daughter. Teens are tough. I'm sending lots of positivity your way in hopes your funk breaks soon.

    This is the first time I've posted this week as things have been crazy at work and with trying to get things ready for the house sale closing. But it's all done -- the sale closed this morning, and I am all but officially free. (The soon-to-be ex still has to OK the wording on the final divorce decree and property settlement agreement. Hopefully soon.) I missed you guys!!

    So I'm celebrating the arrival of autumn, with the brilliant golds, the subdued reds (thanks to the drought), and the cold nights with Serge Lutens Arabie. I really enjoy this one but only in the autumn and winter.

    I hope everyone has a really good day.

    Kewart, I'm glad to hear you're feeling better. I hope Jon is feeling better, too.

    PerfumedLady, I hope you feel better soon.

    It was good to hear from Dora yesterday.

    Kiliwia! Stay safe, dear!

    Good luck, Quarry!

    I'm wearing my usual vintage Chantilly today, floating around in a cloud of it. It is very comforting to me, but I feel self conscious wearing it out because it is so old fashioned and *dusty* -- I am afraid to let anyone stand too close because people just do not go around smelling like this anymore. Only a fellow Basenoter would understand.

    p.s. ExtremeK, I hope things will be peaceful for you soon...a new "normal" at least.

    Well ... had to reschedule the interview. My honey and puppy dog were riding in our faithful ol' truck this morning when they were rear-ended and pushed into cross traffic. Vehicle totaled. Husband and dog were slightly banged up, as far as they look right now. Ambulance personnel told DH he could call 911 within the next day if his head/neck feel any worse.
    Never even got around to spraying on the Mint Leaf. Now that they're home and I just turned over an issue to the client, we're going to have a quiet afternoon watching TV and counting our blessings. Attache-Moi will be the substitute SoTD.
