    Schools not back, so no work as yet. Time to clear away
    the mayhem of Christmas and New Year!
    My SOTD is Rive Gauche.
    A belated Happy New Year to you all. May you enjoy health
    and prosperity in 2013 (and carry on smelling fantastic!)

    Nothing today (!). I slept poorly and was too tired at 7.00am to perform the mental gymnastics required for picking something to wear.

    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,
    I'm still off work this week. Kewart's plan was mine too - cleaning and getting rid of the Christmas stuff. It always feels liberating to me.
    I have Boxeuses and Forreau Noir on me. The Boxeuses with the Scandal animalic remainders from last night combined smell divine. My words... more animalic leather required in Boxeuses. So, let's turn to Fourreau Noir, which is quite perfect in what it promises.
    Best to all

    Oh dear, Gandhajala. That's no fun. Wishing you a restful night tonight.

    Hi all, l'm just in from work, feeling weary in mind & body as l haven't had a day off since Boxing Day. Also had to do the grocery shopping on the way home, which just about wore me out. l should explain that l walk to work & back, that's ten miles a week! Looking forward to two days off now, catching up on some sleep & clearing Christmas away.

    SOTD was Royal Egyptian Amber & Honeysuckle by Lucy B. l'll decide on my SOTE after a bath & a meal.

    Hi everyone - Happy New Year!!

    We left in such a rush I didn't get a chance to wish y'all happy holidays - I sure hope they were merry and bright! We were visiting the in-laws in Las Vegas for Christmas, and now (since I never mind snow as long as I don't have to shovel it) we're in beautiful Winter Park, Colorado for a bit of skiing ...no broken bones so far, but knock wood as I've got a few days and several slopes to go!


    I've been wearing lots of musks lately - I'm in Kiehl's this morning. Y'all have a fantastic day!

    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

    Good morning, good smelling people.

    SSS Sienna Musk today. One of the few with the DH seal of approval, quite unexpected as the SSS are so strong he generally winces like a cat smelling a banana. But with a light touch, very pretty smell. Neither feminine nor masculine to my nose, at all.

    "A cat smelling a banana"; Robin, that is hilarious! l get the same reaction from my bf to certain perfumes, too. Bless.

    Slathered on my own sandalwood jasmine rose concoction (Myrurgia Maderas de Oriente, Donna Karan Essences Jasmine, and one spritz of Tea Rose, which would otherwise hijack the other two) in hopes this would get me through an MRI of the hip. It didn't. Even with open MRI, claustrophobia made it a no-go.

    Sick kids, sick husband, messy house, and it's only January 2nd, but I'm already behind on this month's deadlines... heavens only knows how that got me to Dior Pure Poison today, but it did. Maybe because the color of the box is the same color as my shirt.

    Thanks, Quarry. I just want to add re: messy houses. Never expect to improve your house by more than 20% for company. You will exhaust yourself otherwise and no-one will notice.

    Thanks Jon & gandhajala!

    Kalli, that is great news!

    l am now bathed & fed, & relaxing in Tom Ford's Amber Absolute. l've made my sample last a long time, but l'll miss it when it's gone. SSS's Champagne de Bois is on my wishlist for this year, though. l find the drydown very similar, & the price much more reasonable!

    Back to work, hot weather here in S. Fla today...it feels like Summer (weird).


    Miel du Bois by Serge Lutens (first time from a sample)



    First time wearing this & I loved it. Really good stuff. I'm not a big fan of honey prominent scents but when it's well done, I really appreciate it. I was worried after reading some of the reviews, but I get no 'urine' notes from this. Very nice. I'm not sure I would wear a whole bottle of this, but it sure is a beauty.

    This afternoon (another scent, with a nice honey note):

    Antaeus by Chanel (from my dwindling decant, thanks lilybelle...wherever you are!)

    SotD is Narciso Rodriguez For Her EdT. I m on my third bottle of this one. I think it goes with everything, yet it s a quite unique scent IMHO.
