    Thumbs up SOTD Saturay 19th January 2013

    Good morning everyone. Have all a very happy day

    For me today is

    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 Morning Everyone,

    I hope you've all been well this past week. I've missed you.
    So, I arrived back late last night to snow and cold. Think I preferred the sunshine and warmth of Gujarat.
    Slow day today, methinks. Tired and jetlagged.
    Tabac Blond it is.
    Have a lovely weekend, gang.

    Welcome back G! Coldest day so far with -18 C and though a bit too cold for my taste it is a glorious day - sunny, clear sky and everything covered in snow. Wearing Cuir Ottoman.

    I looked up Gujarat on a map. That is a long distance to fly. No wonder you need to recuperate, G.

    Welcome back G !


    I imagine the weather is a shock to the system after India, but it certainly casts a new perspective on things. We only live 10 minutes walk from St Albans Abbey - looks pretty impressive this morning IMO.

    Good morning, nice smelling family. I owe everyone an apology for missing many a musings of yours but sometimes real life interferes, unapologetically and harshly. With me it is almost always Mr.T, like in 2003, 2005 and 2008. And now again, 2013. I am staying positive and strong, he is in a hospital almost 4 hours away getting better. That will pass too, they said? People in our village have been treating me with kindness.

    I will have to mail out two packages, one to bookwyrm and another one to Glisten, I remember.

    Fragrances have been on the back burner of sorts, I wore FM Iris Poudre and E.Coudray Fetiche. Craving light-hearted vanilla these days, can't find anything that hits the right spot: instead of being comforting, most of the fragrances with vanilla are making statements, somehow. And about 2/3 of them are either musk-based or too heavy on woods/spices/roots. Neither am I keen on simple straightforward vanilla. There were some suggestions, can't wait to try them.

    SotD is Ellen Tracy.

    I have been testing La Petite Robe Noire 2012 version today.
    It starts off very nicely - a rich, sweet blackcherry/ dark rose/ black tea note but on
    my skin it fades within a couple of hours to a non-descript vanilla/
    patchouli. The top notes are what it is all about

    ((Twolf)) You and Mr. T have been much in our thoughts. I wish I could mail you a flying carpet -- 4 hours away is a real problem for visiting.


    Winter cold is with us, appropriate enough weather for January but I am no fan of it.

    (((Twolfie))), so sorry to hear. We've been missing and asking for you. I hope Mr.T will be home very soon; glad to hear they say it will pass. I'll be wishing the very best for you both and you can rest assured, you'll be in my thoughts often.

    So nice to have our gandhajala home with us! Smothering you with hugs right now!

    Gorgeous pics, Jon! I have no use for winter and even I cannot deny that is one beautiful scene. Just lovely.

    Blue_Eyez, you smell wonderful! Have had a lot of Cristalle EDP cravings myself this winter.

    In Gap Smooth Sandalwood today, from jujy's pass. I have really taken my time exploring these jasmines and sandalwoods; hope to wrap it up this weekend!

    So happy to see you (((Twolf))) and Gandhajala.

    Weather today is just plain nasty. Windy and blowing snow right now, -7 F
    wind chills. This time tomorrow it will be -15F with a -31 wind chill. A good
    weekend to stay inside!

    Trying a sample of Etat Libre d'Orange Afternoon of a Faun, with notes of
    bergamot, pepper, cinnamon, incense, rose, immortal flower, orris, jasmine,
    myrrh of Namibia, moss, leather and benzoin. I like the myrrh, incense and
    leather vibe.

    Have a nice Saturday!

    I'm recuperating in a few drops of essential oils of peppermint and lavender today. I am, as a friend used to say, hanging like a bat in a cave: over! Several cups of tea and aromatherapy seem to be helping.

    I must be feeling better, Jon, because I'm now thinking of your venison (drool). And those are beautiful photos!

    Sending get well wishes to Mr. Twolf. Love to everybody. ♥
