    Belated birthday wishes to Inees also and a Happy Birthday wish to
    Odysseum.

    We have lots of snow here today so I shall stay in the house (most of the
    schools are closed) and revel in Cinnabar, whilst doing a batch of cooking.

    Happy Birthday Ody

    Following Kewart's example today. Off work, snow already started here and looks set to continue for the day.
    Venison casserole in the slow cooker, wine in the rack, dvds and nibbles ready for action. Good luck to anyone facing the prospect of public transport later - this pathetic country usually grinds to a halt at the merest sign of anything wintery.

    We finally have our first snow of the winter here; a good couple of inches & still falling! Everything looks so beautiful & quiet.
    Fortunately l have a day off today, so l can stay warm & admire it from afar if l want. No SOTD just yet, will report back later..

    Happy Birthday to Whitefluffy and Odysseum Have a great time on your camping trip, Whitefluffy! I've only ever spent time in northern New Mexico, in the Abiquiu area, although I did venture down to Bandelier, Santa Fe, and Albequerque. Such a lovely state.

    Odysseum, you smell wonderful. I adore Norne and suspect I may succumb to a full bottle before spring.

    Jon and Kewart, I'm jealous! A day cooking and relaxing at home sounds perfect. Although it will be 50 F here today, so the outdoors is actually beckoning.

    I'm in synch today in Dans Tes Bras (Roucel). I'm enjoying it quite a bit.

    Duh. Yesterday I was reminding everyone about sync Friday, and here I failed to observe it. Let's see if I can remember later, after I shower.

    For this a.m., I'm back in vintage Shalimar extrait. Might as well get to know it before it ages further. See, Mr. Q is away for the morning, so I'm allowed to stink as I like. Plan to call Ulta once they open and ask which Shali they have on the shelf.

    And now ... off for a date with the vacuum.

    donna255 - you smell FANTASTIC. One of my favorites eaux's. Sad that the line was disco'd.
    Happy Birthday to my buddy Odysseusm (I will wear some Norne tonight & think of you) and to White Fluffy and also to RedHotDaddy (LOL)!
    Quarry - silly girl, you were the one who reminded me yesterday that today was Roucel/Bourdon sync and you went up and forgot with your Shalimar-on-the-brain (I'm to blame, right?). You'll be throwing off beautiful sillage from behind the vacuum.


    In sync in:

    Kouros (vintage) by Yves St. Laurent



    I realized, when I went to my sample pile, that I only had two scents to participate in the Sync. I could have sworn I owned more Roucel scents...but I thought wrong. There are many that I have been meaning to own (Dans Tes Bras, KenzoAir, etc) but the only I have a bottle of (mini) is Bourdon's Kouros - although I have a decant of Iris Silver Mist I'm gonna wear later (from Roucel).

    I learned, from a few guys on BN, that the best time to wear Kouros is on a hot Summer day. I thought it sounded ridiculous, but one time I went to an outdoor festival right on the beach (on the sand) on a hot June day and I decided 'what the hell' and wore it. It really worked. So, I always think of this as a Summer scent. However, today, we got a cold blast that came through Miami, and it's cold (for us) today...so here I am wearing it in different weather - and it also smells fantastic. It's not quite as 'huge' as when I'm sweating and my body temperature is hot. Underneath my flannel shirt and undershirt, sitting here at my desk, every time I move around I am treated to that wonderful incense/honey/musk smell that is unmistakeably Kouros.

    I’m in synch today in Maurice Roucel’s Rochas Tocade layered over a smidge of Attar Bazaar’s Indian Patchouli oil – what a reek! But I like them together. I’m busy vacuuming and cleaning house today, too. B-belle is coming home this evening, and after two weeks of enjoying hotel amenities I didn’t want him to come home to a scuzzy wreck. Dust bunny round up today.
    I’ve been enjoying my two or three staple fragrances, one for day and one night; but also rose fragrances lately, especially layering – for example: perfumer’s workshop tea rose over kiehl’s original musk. Today’s Tocade over patchouli oil. I suppose I’m aiming for an underlying dirty earthiness with a rose aura hovering above. Wearing a fragrance that is composed with these elements gracefully blended doesn’t interest me, it’s the odd layering that I’m enjoying. It’s a phase.

    Happy Birthday to Odysseusm!

    Happy Birthday, Whitefluffy!

    Happy Birthday wishes to RHM’s husband, too!


    Have a good weekend everybody!

    Bonjour mes dames! It's been forever since I posted here, but I still recognise a few names.
    My enthusiasm for scent waned for a while, but it's on an upswing again due to a recent lucky find: Convent des Minimes Eau Aimable.

    Hope everyone's 2013 is off to a good start.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    It's one of our favourite dishes - I make it with diced bacon, red wine, cranberries, and shallots. Always goes down wonderfully with a nice merlot.
