    Well done, Quarry! Good girl!
    Hope Foustie is back to her full self again!

    Best to all

    Ok, I am trying Brin de Reglisse by Hermes. I get licorice and a BIG V8 tomato juice note! I get tomato juice! I hate tomatoes! Something gives this a tomato juice note..ugh! It's licorice, woody, dry and then tomato! Then smokey, balmy licorice.

    Also tried Ambre Narguile..which I loved sniffing from the vial..then I applied it.. smokey, apple n cinnamon potpourri..smells like air freshener. Sorry, it just does. Pass on that one!

    What starts to be like a win though, Osmanthe Yunnan. I think I really like osmanthus! The only thing, smells a little bit too aquatic and there's a floral that kinda bugs me..maybe it's freesia.

    Morning all,

    A work-at-home day for me as my office is being re-decorated (nothing fancy, sadly).
    Delighted to be house-twins with Larimar today: Bois des Iles (EdT).
    Have a lovely day, folks.

    I discussed such a theme with the Head of Department. Sadly, the response was less than enthusiastic. Can't imagine why...

    Got up early to see the list of school closings and delays online, to make sure school was canceled --and it was.

    Going to crawl back to bed-- it's too early to face the freezing cold cleanup.

    SOTD is Caron Parfum Sacre Intense on this cold, post-nor'easter morning. The storm dumped a good six inches of snow out here on Staten Island.

    Wish you all a very good day.

    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..."

    Stay warm everyone (it's a little chilly here too...in the 60's LOL)

    For me today it's (from my new decant):

    Vanille 44 by Le Labo



    Beautiful stuff. Of course Shalimar will always be my go-to vanilla, but this modern, stark, soft-as-a-kitten one is dazzling. Why should only the Parisian Le Labo customers have all of the fun?

    Great job, Quarry. Pretty exhausting too, judging by the amount of concrete blocks you had to move and piece together.

    Nothing really exciting here, except for the new tea from Tazo I bought yesterday -- Rest, with rose petals, lavender, lemon and valerian. Not my most favorite rose interpretation in teas, reminds me somewhat of Annick Goutal Ce Sour Ou Jamais which I will wear as my SotD, I suppose.

    Have a nice day.

    Oh, Terry! I was wondering how much snow you got. Do you have power? My family just got theirs on after Sandy and then lost it again in Athena.

    Kalli, you crack me up with your description.

    Dr. G, did they at least let you choose the paint color? Something cheerful, I hope! (Although, I love Larimars' idea!)

    30 Roses, stay warm honey. The kids are going to be going to school in July at this rate!

    Quarry, Sofie is trying out for the weapons line in Winter guard. Scares me watching her throw the saber but man, she's pretty darn good! Did your daughter spin rifle or saber?

    The recent articles regarding the eventual demise of Chanel No. 5 prompted me to wear the edt yesterday. Still feels like the right thing to wear today.



    My new job is going very well AND I enjoy it. I even got a personal commendation from one of the visiting corporate executives.
    Pretty good for my 5th day.

    K, G and L, you having me chuckling already this morning -- tomato juice and licorice ... office decorating -- what, no Guerlain chandelier over your desk?

    Well, it finally happened: Daughter entered the house yesterday and said, "It smells good in here." FIRST FRAG COMPLIMENT EVER FROM DD! As it happens, yesters' scent is also a hubby fave. Let's hear it for Bond No. 9 Mothers! The only other scent deemed likable by all three of us is Jicky. Can't say there's any strong parallel between the two other than sweet and powdery qualities.

    I'm ready to switch up today to Nanadebary Green for its refreshing nature.

    Thank you very much for compliments on yesterday's project tale. Your comments distract me from how much my thumbs hurt.

    Sabers? Lordy, no, just flags. Gees, remember when we first told our little ones not to run with scissors?
    Good news about your job. Nothing motivates like acceptance and positive feedback.

    Congratations on the commendation, RHM! That must have made you feel good.

    What color walls, Dr. G.? We need to know those little details.

    I'm contemplating Marion Cotillard's haircut in Evangeline's pic, thinking...I'd really like to have my hair cut elegantly. But she's in NY in the photo, a place where you can actually get a good haircut. I suppose I'll just keep letting mine grow for now.

    My SotD is about to be Bal à Versailles edc from my new bottle. Stay warm and safe, everyone.

    Afternoon L. Afternoon everyone. Well, I can smell, and the stuffiness and sore throat are nothing that can't be fixed with some alcohol. So no fuss there. AND I am now on a long weekend off. Hurrah!

    I went for Tubereuse Criminelle. Well you would wouldn't you? Cuts through the sniffles you see. Tonight maybe SMN Peau D'Espagne, cuts through anything.....that'll clear my head.

    Alcohol works well, doesn't it? Add a splash to a cup of tea. I hope you have a great weekend, Foustie. Enjoy!

    (((Northeasters))), I'm so sorry to hear you had yet more nasty weather. You all deserve some very happy times, which I'm sure are coming your way.

    Awesome work, Quarry!

    Cheers, Foustie! Hope that icky cold is all gone soon. Bottoms up!

    I'm in Chypre de Coty today- thank you soooo much, jujy! This is divinity. Wearing this makes me think the folks at the EU have lost their minds, to even consider further destroying the beautiful art of perfumery. Grrr!

    BBW ~ Black Amethyst. I love this stuff, and it has made this difficult morning here in NY more pleasurable. For anyone driving out there, please be careful. Many streets cannot be plowed due to low hanging wires from the weight of the snow.

    Quarry, what an amazing job! I'm terribly impressed. It's going to be amazing when it's all done!

    (((30R))) Hang in there. I hear you're due for temps in the 60s this weekend -- a little relief maybe?
