Morning Wolfie, morning everyone. Ha Ha love the image easyfish!
Some time ago our friend and my sister-in-L'eau PerfumedLady, sent me a lovely package with lots and lots of things to try. (She and I could just about swap wardrobes.) Some mornings I just feel like dipping into that package. This morning was one of those mornings. So, Nicolai Balkis for me today!
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..."

My daughter left for school with a scratchy throat and head and stomach feeling unsettled...she wanted to try it, but I wondered how long she would last. Sure enough, an hour later she called me from the nurse's office to come get her and now she's back in bed.
SotD is Oolong layered with JM French Lime blossom. Oolong has a linden note and the JM accentuates that.

After the holiday rush is over, I think I will have to get myself to Sephora and do some sniffing as I've been in a scent rut for a few days. Funny how Boucheron just hit the button one day, and Shalimar spoke to me on another day, and then I didn't connect with anything for a few days.
For now, I have a dot of Cuir Beluga on one wrist and Kilian Prohibited on the other.
Be well, lovelies.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Ha-ha! I am so lucky to have such a witty sister-in-L'eau! Love it, hope you are prepared for lots of overuse of that phrase from me, Foustie!
Yes, we could just swap our wardrobes entirely and I'd be very happy! I've been missing my decant of Esvedra you sent; believe I could finish off that bottle for you. All your others too!
Balkis does not get enough love, I think. It's not as edgy as the other PdN's but it is a really lovely rose. Well worth considering for those of us who love the rosies.
I swiped a bit of RHM's Grand Amour from the Goutal pass (with permission!) and am wearing it today. Had thought Heure Exquise was my favorite Goutal green but this one is even more me. Such beautiful and clear florals, just love it!
What a busy day! I was in K de Krizia today, and I'm in L'Arte di Gucci this evening.
Have a good night, everyone.
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
