It's the perfect day for warming up with L'Eau Lente!
Have a nice Monday, all of you.

Hello all. Parfums DelRae Mythique
iodine! We are having the same weather here in Cleveland Ohio. Getting ready for work today in an elementary school, so I'm going with an unobtrusive classic from my wardrobe, vintage Weil Antilope EdT.

Hello everyone. Hello Paradeiserl!
Well finished work at 21:00 last night. Start again at 23:00 tonight and in between I'll have to go to do some work at the new house, so it's full steam ahead! I'll be needing frequent applications of a good hard working Cologne. The delightful SMN Acqua Di Sicilia will do nicely!

Oh, I missed Larimar's biiiig posting milestone. A hearty congratulations to one of the most wonderful of contributors!
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, the sun is rising over the new world and today wearing the body shop Dreams Unlimited. Chile peppers, mmm. Me gustan pimientos. generally speaking, I'll throw a jalapeno into d*mn near anything, and throwing one into this perfume really does make it work for me.
Hi gang, missed you over the weekend! Congrats to Larimar on 4000 insightful, fun, intelligent and hilarious posts! And I missed congratulating Twolf last week on her huge posting milestone, what with all the site flakiness. You both do much to make this the wonderful place it is!
Amouage Gold for me today. Hugs to all!

Umph...a bit snug. Time to cut down portions pwehaps? Hmmm?
These things cannot be long hidden: the Sun, the Moon, the Truth--Buddha
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
A solitary snowflake for Jon. We, too, like iodine and jujy, have our should-be snow turning into rain.
While we did have some new white stuff on the ground yesterday evening, I went out and fetched the cold ingredient for a Scotch & Snow.
Plaisir, I almost applied a sample of Gardénia Pétale this morning because florals sweep me off my feet, but having read another thread's posts by Larimar and Hedonist, instead sprayed on En Avion extrait. It's outside my normal comfort zone, but my comfort zone has relaxed and expanded with the ever-lessening of life's stresses. I can't tell you, fragrant friends, how wonderful it is to arrive at a stage where it doesn't feel like life is demanding more of me than I'm prepared to give, that I have sufficient creative outlets to permit the mind to frolic, that I have purpose to my activities and little fear of unpleasant surprises. A spicier scent like En Avion can be observed for its artistry, even as its heat burns a little in my child-like nasal receptors.
Wishing all a low-stress week.

I was almost scent twins with you this morning, Evangeline, but I went with Coco edp instead, finishing up an old decant. This was never my style, and I didn't wear it back in the day, but it is such a beautiful fragrance I can't stop sniffing myself this morning. I always, when smelling this, hear ivory and cinnabar bangles sliding together on an arm, hear dice clicking together in a cup being shaken. For some reason its resiny quality evokes aural imagery.
Quarry, I'm glad things are in balance and that you are at peace. Very glad. xo
It's a hot and sunny beautiful day here, wind is blowing with a slight stiffness to the air - absolutely glorious. I was in a sh*tty mood yesterday (thus my absence) but things turned around I am greeting the day with positive thoughts, gratitude and hope. See how things turn around, sometimes?
I rarely wear this to work, but today I needed a little 'comfort' to go along with me throughout the day...and this stuff works like a charm:
Shalimar vintage Eau de Cologne layered with vintage Extrait/Parfum + Body Cream + Body Powder + Habit Rouge deodorant
I smell friggin gorgeous, my friends...GOR-GEOUS!
Lilybelle - nice to see you posting more regularly now, you were missed ((hugs))
Momma Quarry - a glass has been raised to your 'comfort zone' ((hugs))
Larimar - here's to 4,000 more posts! ((hugs))
Anyone need any hugs?

We've warmed up finally, it's 27F and snowing, I'm hoping we've seen the last of the sub zero temps.
Congratulations, Larimar, on your posting milestone, I always enjoy reading your posts!
Happy (late) Anniversary to the Quarry's, I hope you had a lovely day.
Wearing Pierre Balmain Jolie Madame this morning.
Wishing everyone a great day.
Thank you for the hug, Mike, and a big (((hug))) back. And you DO smell friggin' GORGEOUS!!
It's snowing here but it's not supposed to amount to much more than a messy PM commute.
I transferred the contents of my Enchanted Forest sample to an atomizer and sprayed it solely over clothing (I had previously decided I liked it more on paper than on skin.) Oh, no-- no way! The musk and amber combined with the blackcurrant in a way that didn't work at all for me. Off came the clothes and down the laundry chute right away. Hubby can try the sample next.
And now I'm in L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger and considerably happier.
About my fragrance, anyway. I see clicking on "New Posts" is bringing up the Database Error notice.
