    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..."

    Good morning!

    Happy Birthday, Hedonist! I hope you have a great day.

    DH and I are leaving for Rochester today and will be gone most of the week.
    I have several appointments at the Mayo Clinic, ones that have been rescheduled
    too many times to count. I was suppose to go there the end of September but due
    to the doctors schedule and my husbands it got put off until now. We also have
    to go back the 19th for more tests.

    SotD Guerlain L'Instant.

    Take care, everyone!

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in vintage Calvin Klein this morning, goin' to my dance class. I'm not sure why, but I've been choosing my favorite 70s-80s fragrances for modern ballet a lot, and primarily the bold, classic floral-chypres ...really more retro than modern, but they just seem to somehow fit.




    Happy Birthday hedonist - wishing you a fantastic day!

    Have a safe trip Kiliwia - I hope all goes well! (You smell gorgeous! )

    I'm scent twins with iodine today, I'm also wearing Seville a l'Aube. This is the last few drops of my sample and I'm still trying to decide if I should buy a full bottle or not. I guess not, if I'm still so undecided. I really really like it, but I think I like Sweet Redemption more and I already have that. I'm not saying they are alike, but I think I would reach for the SR more often ...

    Kiliwia, best of luck with your appointments. I went to the Mayo Clinic several years ago ... It's an amazing place!

    Sending happy birthday wishes to Hedonist!

    More of that Drole de Rose but sampled a couple of other ones. Jasmal again and Interlude Woman again..just to see if I dislike them still. I didn't get the cat box note from Jasmal like I did the last time I sniffed but maybe I needed to apply more to see. I didn't like the cat pee note. I like the citrus in Interlude..just not sure if I'd wear it. Immortelle..idk about that note.

    Wow, I fell out of the loop over a busy weekend and look at all I missed!

    Firstly, Happy, Happy Birthday to hedonist! I hope you enjoy your celebrations to the fullest! Just think, it's your last birthday as a father of two!

    Kiliwia, very best of luck to you and safe travels. Looking forward to hearing good news!

    (((Larimar))), the news of your dog broke my heart. What an awful shock, I'm so sorry. Her time was too short but she was one lucky dog to get to spend it with you. On a much less serious note, thanks to you and G. for the parka eye candy! You're both as handsome as you are kind.

    30R, thanks for thinking of dad kindly on Friday! He's ridiculously happy that it's his last birthday as a working man! His attitude made for fun celebrations!

    I know I've missed something I wanted to comment on; rest assured that it will come to me eventually.

    I'm in EL Private Collection today. Hope everyone's week is starting off right!

    Catching up on the weekend's posts, I'm so sad to hear, Larimar, about your sudden loss. I am so, so sorry. Our furry family members are with us for too short a time under the best of conditions. A loss like that is so traumatic. ((((Larimar))))

    Mike, I'm glad you're finally on the mend. I'm sorry it was so wretched getting there.

    Kiliwia, safe travels and my fingers are crossed for good results.

    RHM, congratulations. I'm so happy you found what you were looking for.

    Happy Birthday, Hedonist!

    PerfumedLady, my husband hit 66 this summer, but plans to work until at least 72 to get our daughter through college. And lately he's been making noises about continuing working even past that (part time), as long as his employer will let him.

    Believe me, 30R, my dad is glad my brother and I are both on our own! He wouldn't consider this if he had one going off to college, either. We actually began nudging him towards this shortly after my mom passed but it has taken 10 ( nope,9, my math is bad!) years and consultations with two financial advisors to convince him. He didn't start out feeling very positive about this but I'm grateful for the turnaround in attitude. It sure took some work to get him here. I hope Mr.30R will decide to retire when Rosebud is done with college after all. Talking with some retirement planners now may help give him some peace of mind about it.

    A couple of dabs of vintage Tabu edp this evening. This is strong! I love it in the first few minutes - I get camphor and nutmeg and root beer and salt - but as with most spicy orientals on my skin, after a while it's just too much. It keeps intensifying and sweetening as it warms on skin. Detectable civet in this one, too. Still, it's cozy like body heat...and it is getting chilly here.
