    Good morning !.



    Happy Birthday Haunani

    Happy Birthday Kevin Guyer

    Hope Mr Kiliwia enjoyed his day yesterday.

    Ali, no crowing from me following the football. Our victory was hardly deserved and the manner in which it was achieved was a little embarrassing

    SotD is Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille.

    Happy birthday to Haunani, Kevin Guyer and KarmaLee, and a happy belated birthday to Kiliwia!


    It's a gloriously sunny day in London and having spent yesterday gardenining, I'm going to take a break and test some samples, starting with Petale Noir by Agent Provocateur. I did try it a bit yesterday, but the Micallef Gardenia I was wearing was so dominant that it altered my senses.

    Enjoy your Sunday, everyone!
    Do happy

    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..."

    SotD is my old friend vintage Choc de Cardin. A true citric, green chypre for this fresh blue skied day. Smell of happy holidays and being in love. Green, astringent, citric sour and salty oakmoss. Glorious! I now have about 10 mls to eek out so a full generous wearing is a total luxury

    Good morning everyone -

    I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised, but I'm twins with Wolfie in 8e Jour ...I actually woke up thinking about it so the choice was obvious, but I think that's a slightly uncanny, though perfectly delightful, coincidence.

    Y'all have a great day!





    Happy Birthday wishes to Haunani, KarmaLee and KevinG!

    Having a rare Serge Lutens craving this a.m., and I almost literally had to wring glass to get a smidge of Fille en Aiguilles onto my left wrist.

    If/when our birthday kids do show up, I'll add a scoop of ice cream to their cake. Children, where are you?

    Wearing Le Mimosa by Annick Goutal, from a sample. Well, this smells exactly like the beautiful yelowish-green and pink mimosa flowers that hang from the majestic mimosa tree, on the walk down to beach in the summer. There's a trace of musk, I guess to ground the fragrance, but aside from that, it's a solaflore. So,while lovely and accurate, I've grown a bit bored with it after an hour. Time to move on the the next SoTD!

    Enjoy your SoT Day everyone.

    She-wolf today, LOL. There is something about the *dirty musk* that smell bent uses that I do like a lot. It's kind of addictive smelling. I have the Horny Little Devil and this one, they are like brother and sister. Oils not sprays.

    Chantilly again...I'm boring - on a jag with it.

    It has turned chilly and rainy here. Summer was still here yesterday, but today it finally feels autumnal. Jon's music suits the day. I have some gingerbread baking in the oven...it smells delish.

    Happy Birthday to Haunani, KarmaLee, and Kevin Guyer!

    Happy Birthday to Kevin, Haunani and KarmaLee!

    I needed something a bit cozy today as it is raw and drizzly, so I'm wearing Jour de Fête.

    Often when I'm passing by the bakery at ShopRite (supermarket) I smell a scent in the air very like Jour de Fête. I think they must be using some sort of fragrance diffusion system to scent the air with an almondy smell to induce people to buy pastries.

    That is a good gingerbread if I do say so myself. I had mine with a hot apple cider. Gingerbread and hot toddies for everyone...

    Still floating around in clouds of Chantilly. If I ever tire of this I will never want to be near it again, but for now nothing suits me half as well. It's just part of me now, the spirit of my psyche in scent form.

    Hypnotic Poison. which goes really well with gingerbread and all the birthdays if I do say so myself.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."
