I am extremely excited today! Leaving our neck of the woods for big city lights (well, not THAT big) for some perfume shopping with fellow Basenoter. Said Basenoter was brave enough to willing meet with me despite my cold!
Still can't smell anything this morning, great timing for all things annoying as usual . The only two scents I can smell and therefore they will be my SOTD and SOTE are Dzongkha and Coze. Both are heavy on black pepper to which I am hypersensitive, thankfully.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

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 afternoon and happy weekend to all of you!
This very early morning, for my last day at school for this year (two weeks without teenagers around ahead!!)I put on a few drops of Etro Patchouly. I'm going to put on some more, as it has almost completely disappeared.
Best wishes from Milan dipped in the whitest fog!
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
Ah, whitefluffy beat me to it! Yes, we are going sniffing with our impaired noses, so mostly will probably be laughs and lunch But we will try! I can at least still smell, while poor whitefluffy may just have to window shop
In honor of the occasion, I am wearing nothing (perfume wise that is), so that I am ready to spritz later.
Thank you for the holiday wishes, easyfish. Same goes back to you!
Crisply cool (low 40s F overnight) and full sun this morning here on the south Florida coast. I actually have a log burning in the fireplace to warm up the downstairs for the first time since last winter ended.
Tea for Two seems just right

Have to run out and try to find one thing for my daughter -- not really a Christmas thing, just something she needs anyway-- and then over to Mom's this afternoon with a hunk of leftover birthday cake to watch a Christmas themed movie-- haven't decided which one yet.
Like kbe, I'm cool and chilly (and beautifully sunny) here in Miami. Yay!!!
I was not sure WHAT I wanted to wear this morning (do you feel like that sometimes?), so when I opened up the Men's SOTD thread, the 1st post was of Opium Pour Homme the EdP by YSL so I thought, 'What the hell' it's been AGES since I wore it from my decant.
So I'm lounging 'round the house in this masculine powerhouse oriental. Just a tiny bit is all you need for this one. Spicy!!!!
Please tell the little Rosebud a belated Happy 17th Birthday for me, 30R! Ahhh, seventeen...it was fun but I wouldn't go back there, not even for a ton of cash!
Whitefluffy & cello, I'm so glad you two found each other! I had meant to ask if you noticed cello was close to you, Whitefluffy! And both of you are iris lovers, this is so perfect! I hope you both have a blast and that you'll find something you can smell!
HdP Tubereuse 1 La Capriceuse today here. Next few days are crammed full for me; if I don't get time to post before, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas! I hope Santa brings you all exactly what you wanted. You're extremely special to me, gang-lots & lots of love to you all!
WhiteFluffy & Cello, I envy the fun you’ll be having today.
After vacuuming for what, at my age, I've calculated as the 1,588th time (ugh), I'm feeling clean and pretty in Bond No. 9 I Love New York for Mothers, the longest-named perfume in my wardrobe.
Be well, my sweets.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Whitefluffy and cello, I hope you have a lovely time and your sniffles magically disappear (you are in the Land of Enchantment, after all, with all those vortexes).
Late start for me today. The last of the cold is just hanging around, and my sniffer is still at about 40%. Gah.
It's cold but beautifully sunny here in the Great Plains, perfect for my last bit of Christmas shopping, grocery shopping for Christmas cooking and baking, and stocking up for my trip to SoCal next week.
Today is SL Fourreau Noir, with that wonderful hot mess of an open. I seem to be doing OK with the musk today. We'll see how it goes.
Just had a haircut, and am now showered, shaved and in Guerlain's Eau du Coq. Clean and fresh and house-twin with Tdem.
Will be up early tomorrow to get a jump on the motorway traffic - heading north to visit my mother for a week. Decants are already packed.
Whitefluffy & Cello - hope you gals have a great day out.
Best wishes to all.
Evening all. Ormonde Woman for me today. Expecting the family over tomorrow for an early Christmas celebration. I think they're just coming over to see the kittens - maybe I'll serve one up for lunch ... if I can extricate one from the Christmas tree
