    Yesterday I attended the funeral of my good friend's father. I once again turned to the comfort of Tam Dao but this time added a few dabs of Serge Lutens De Profundis, and it was achingly lovely. My friend's father was a huge, lovable presence for his friends and family, and went so far as to insist that no slow music be played at his funeral -- only stuff you can dance to. It's the first funeral I've ever attended where the recessional was Ode to Joy -- but it was so very fitting.
    The funerals of longtime friends' parents were not one of the marker passages I anticipated in youth. They're different experiences from relatives'. I'm glad you could get something of a feel-good feeling reflecting on his life rather than dwelling on his absence.

    Reading in the Sunday paper about whacky weather everywhere, I, too, wonder what the next growing season will bring. Poor farmers, how can they plan? And then Beijing had literally off-the-chart air pollution particulates. Pretty hard to enjoy smelling fragrances when you're wearing a mask or respirator.

    Evening all.

    Olfactive Studio Autoportrait woody pencil shavings to my nose. Not sure what the notes are.

    Jon lucky you "popping" to Paris for the day. As. Leeds fan that was probably a wise move....

    30R comfort food it is, chicken and sausage casserole with potato and celeriac mash tonight. A beef stew thickened with orzo (strange combo but works beautifully) and a fennel scented sausage hotpot later in the week with eastern European braised red cabbage which has cloves, vinegar, apples and onion, perfect with the fennel sausage. These will improve with keeping and will be eaten during the week

    Snow in Gods Own County overnight which thawed in the sun today. Freezing now and snow forecast overnight again. The drive to the city of seven hills will be interesting tomorrow.

    Absolutely. The result was so utterly predictable. Congrats .

    Sounds marvelous! And yes, some foods definitely taste even better the next day!

    Giving my nose a break today- but longingly sniffing my empty Hermes bottles (Voyage d'Hermes and Un Jardin Sur le Nil, both gifts from my dear fiance.)

    Oh, I forgot to tell you guys!!!! My bf and I are engaged since November!!!! Soon I will be *Mrs.* Casey.
    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    I was wearing Vent Vert today, the vintage extrait. Now sniffing the last recognizable traces on my wrist. Wonderful; the warmth and softness in the end contains everything I love about perfume. C'est le Vent Parfait maintenant.
    But maybe it just seems so divine to me because it's almost gone…

    Hello! It's good to read your posts. They make me smile. I had no shower or bath today so it was a perfect day for an all over spritz of Bal a Versailles edc. It smells best when your natural skin oils have not been stripped by hot baths/showers. B-belle is down in Atlanta so I have the house to myself and can reek up the place to my heart's content. It's been nice, but now it's going into week 2, and I'm like... I think we'll be relocating to Atlanta. The mere thought of moving is exhausting...yet exciting. I dream and meander when I should be clearing cupboards and closets and de-possessing myself of useless possessions while there is the time to do that. I hope you all have a good week! xo

    I am testing Kerosene Copper Skies today and OMG it is gorgeous! Very rich and just wonderfully sweet with touches of spice, herbs and tobacco. I totally love it and totally want it! BTW, I had won a full bottle of his R'Oud Elements from a Facebook group giveaway celebrating his one year anniversary. John was very generous to also throw in some samples and I'm very grateful to be testing his wonderful scents. Some of you who want to love Ambre Sultan but find it too incense-y or dry or whatever please try Copper Skies ... it might be just what you are looking for.

    Notes: amber, cedar, sweet tobacco leaves, honeycomb, basil and cloves

    lilybelle, moving to Atlanta? That's exciting, but yes, exhausting too. How's the housing market where you now live? Will you have any trouble selling your house? I hear Atlanta is a buyer's market right now with good deals to be found. (not that I'm an expert!)

    Congratulations to misscasey! Have you set a date? We would love to hear some details, if you want to share!

    And speaking of comfort food ... pot roast with carrots and potatoes for dinner tonight! Hubby put it in the crock pot hours ago and it smells SO good!

    hugs to all ...
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Foustie, it's too bad Norne didn't hit the right notes with you -- I absolutely love it! It's the first green fragrance that really appeals to me. And it's a powerhouse, so all the better.

    Speaking of powerhouses, shades, I love Copper Skies, too. I bought a 5ml decant of it, but it may turn into a full bottle next fall. It's really fantastic.

    misscasey, congratulations! What wonderful news! When's the happy day?

    Greetings, all. Hope everyone is having a nice windup to their weekend.

    So I accidentally posted earlier today in the guys SOTD thread -- oops. As I said there, I started the day wearing Profumum Confetto, which was really warm and cozy feeling on this rather chilly day.

    Then, just before going out to dinner, I dabbed on sample of Knize Ten Golden Edition, on the inside of one forearm. Interesting experience. My initial reaction was a resounding NO, way too "perfumey". I put on a long sleeve shirt and forgot about it. Didn't really notice it much during dinner (Thai food, very fragrant.) Then, just now, I took a sniff and realized that it smells kind of amazing. Wow.

    Congrats Miss Casey!

    Been able to wear a little bit of perfume again after those really horrible allergies! Put a little bit(little) of Stella.

    LOL, I won some perfume off of a blog but barely missed the deadline to respond... I never win anything but then I do and I miss the deadline. Ugh. LOL. Been watching those play-offs I guess lol... what can I say?
