    Morning all. It's 2:45 in the morning here, but am pulling an all nighter in order to meet a deadline.

    Scent of the very early morning - Neela Vermeire's Bombay Bling from a sample. I really need something uplifting, and this is just hat the doctor ordered.

    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..."

    Ladymurasaki, many of your posts and pictures have the most wonderful effect on my affect, that of instant calm.

    Today. Ramon Monegal Mon Cuir, a floral leather. The florals are orange flower and undoubtedly jasmine, the leather is concentrated and animalic. Is is strange and compelling.

    Well, the label came off the sample bottle but I am pretty sure this is Neil Morris Rainflower. I was reaching for something else but this smelled very good to me today. It is just not quite 'me' enough that I want to buy a bottle but I think this is my 3rd mini size of it, may have to cave eventually.

    It is indeed cold here - when I left my house this morning it was actually snowing ! Thankfully, none of it has stuck.
    Busy day - only just getting a chance to post: Oncle Serge's Cuir Mauresque.
    Hope you meet that deadline, whimsicaldiva and manage a good snooze afterwards.
    Best to all.
