    Good morning ladymurasaki. It is brrrrrrr here today. Hard frost. Much more like winter than autumn.

    The eponymous Jean-Louis Scherrer today, from mumsy's collection. I like it a great deal.

    Take care all.

    Good Morning,

    Bright, clear day here in London. Not especially warm, however.

    Musc Ravageur for me.

    Happy Hump-Day, gang.

    SOTD is Serge Lutens Boxeuses, smooth, rich, dark -- Serge at his most Lutensian. If Chanel Cuir de Russie and Feminite du Bois had a love child, it would smell like this.

    Best to all!

    Have been busy in the last two days: that school DOES get it all from you, especially when one is a perfectionista and can't stand to be anything but first in class competing with younger, smarter, more alert bunch whose memory storages are not bruised with too much information about houses, noses, notes.

    All well, something subdued (yes, for school!): Miller et Bertaux Close Your Eyes And... A girl can dream, even when it is below zero C, non?

    Good morning! A rainy day; I drove my daughter to school and will go over to Mom's later on to watch Wuthering Heights (which she's seen time and again.)

    It has gotten colder fast, and my mind hasn't made the switch yet to cool weather fragrances. I'll pick out my SotD later but I think it may be White Lilac & Rhubarb.

    Hello everyone -

    I'm in Keiko Mecheri's Attar de Roses for ballet this morning. Y'all have a great day!


    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

    I'm twins with Larlmar in Jicky this morning. Mine is the last of a decant of edp. This really is perfection, isn't it?

    30 Roses, I just watched Wuthering Heights recently for the three thousandth time...but a new to me BBC production with Tom Hardy as Heathcliff...swoon. I am a Bronte addict.

    Love to everybody. Happy Wednesday!

    I'm just back from a very, very long stay in Paris for Fashion Week and beyond. Typically, I *never* fly in and out of CDG but this time all the travel arrangements were made independent of personal input. (I have an *A'dam Schipol Only* Euro-zone policy) I hadn't been to CDG in at least 10 years. The international departures terminal: Are you ready people?

    LE PARADIS DES PARFUMEURS

    It truly was a Perfume Fancier's Dream Made Reality, complete with fake neo-modern Louis XVI airport furniture, and an enormous Laduree tea room smack in the middle, like a carousel. I snooped around a bit: There just isn't anything that can't be found in there, in one place or another--No anything you might ever desire that isn't there waiting--(I didn't go into the Guerlain Boutique--I'm fully stocked for the rest of my life w/pre-wasser vintage & have zero interest.) At any rate, I wish I could say dealing with the MESS of CDG was worth it. It would be nice if I could say that....but I'm just incapable. I'll take A'dam Schipol *any day* over that Hell on Earth--even if it does, in it's nucleus, contain a Perfume Paradise.

    I'm the most boring scent of the day contributor ever, as I don't "sleep around" with scents, being a firm believer in signature effluvia. We all know what cloud I'll be walking out the door in today......Three layers of:


    Bal a Versailles

    This seems to be having quite the effect in my new environment, which, btw, I love. It *Must* be a bit weird for all of the team, though--as they're all tech-advanced and younger than I by at least 10 years: nobody there wears fragrance *at all*--they all must consider me a kind of "visite" from another century: Already they have all made comments about my hats and gloves and pens and all of the things that accompany me--I imagine my scent aura reminds them of their Fragile 100 Year Old Great Aunts...not even their mothers, who would have worn "Babe," or "Charlie" or "Ciara" or something along those lines.


    addendum: Habanita wearer upstairs: Yeeowza!

    Good morning! A Lab on Fire What We Do In Paris is Secret for me today. Thought I would celebrate the "cooler" weather in Florida. It's like 77 degrees instead of 85 this morning!

    I saw "Jean-Louis Scherrer" in your post and right there decided I would do the same -- copy-catting Foustie. Meow.

    My skin does nothing but twist JLS unpleasantly, so I took a blast to the t-shirt chest.

    Twolf, how could you be anything but top of the class????????????

    Welcome home!!

    We missed you! I definitely can see the hay, and heather, and horse sweat, and dried manure/peat, and fresh air, and a yummy natural musky scent under it all. Tom Hardy's Heathcliff was swoony as hell.

    CDG perfume paradise sounds perfectly heavenly to me. I would love that. What about all the food shops and other shops where you could load up on mustard and tins of paté and french soaps and all kinds of things - they didn't do away with those, did they? I think the last of this decant of Jicky must have been pre-Wasser.

    Lilybelle, thanks for the tip! I will have to try to get that one from the library...if our own library doesn't have it, one of the others in the system should. I'm pretty sure the one she has is the one with Timothy Dalton.

    I'm wearing a sample of Sublime Vanille and off to Mom's....

    I'm with lilybelle, Welcome Back! I can definitely "see" Heathcliff with a bit of Tabac Blond, I may have to dig my bit of TB out later on and have a Heathcliff dream. For now I'm wearing Habanita, I need something warm today, it's a chilly wet one out there.

    I think it is my favorite version to date, the 2009 BBC production. Enjoy! I watched it on youtube (I think? can't remember!).
