    Good Evening,

    Right you are, Mrs.Q: I have to keep reminding myself I'm posting to the interweb, not wiring a telegram where spaces cost.
    Scentsucker - Selfridges London get 1932 on the 12th, other boutiques have to wait till the end of the month. Not sure about the one at duty free.
    Jon smells awesome and if Arwen_Elf stopped by, she'd no doubt agree.

    Chanel Cuir de Russie (Exclusifs EdT) tonight.

    Best to all.

    A tiny dab on both radial pulsepoints of MDCI Peche Cardinale. What a gorgeous powerhouse this stuff is. I have only a 1ml sample, but it is going to last a while. ? Does anyone actually spray this?

    Congrats to Robin & daughter #2 for the great news!

    Lucasi, wonderful news for you too! Excellent work!

    Thanks, Quarry! I'll let Sofie know. She's so excited right now, she's gotten her average up to a 91 in her most difficult class, English Honors.

    I'm being very lazy today. I work tonight & need to go food shopping. Best get a move on.

    LOL, Quarry! I always enjoy your humorous posts. Right now I have a big rock in garage to which magnets stick to, maybe one day I will discover that it's a meteorite and worth a fortune .

    Lucas - Congratulations! I know all about pains and joys of studying, though I suspect your studies are a bit more exciting than mine.

    Courtesy of a wonderful gentleman from Down Under it's CdG Vettiveru today. Very refreshing and very pleasant.

    Great news there, Robin and lucasai! Happy for you both!

    Mom was a little batty last night...middle of the night phone call, weird stuff, but today she seemed back to herself. I took over some homemede potato leek soup and we watched a DVD of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. We went to see this movie together at the theater when it first came out (1971).

    SotD is L'Artisan Fleur d'Oranger 2007.

    Didn't wear any scent today but reading sotd thread this evening made me hanker after a Chanel, so it's 31 Rue Cambon for me at the moment.

    Well done Lucasai and Robin's daughter! Great news for you both.

    Hugs to all, I am having a maddening busy day so I cannot talk long - however you are all in my thoughts & I love reading everyone's little personal stories/comments.

    SOTD is:

    Play Red by Comme des Garcons (first time from a sample)



    Cherry? I don't smell it. What I do smell is something mildly sweet and spicy. Weird (of course it is, it's a CdG) and not entirely sure how I feel about this yet. Indifferent, I suppose.

    ((bear hugs))

    Good evening!

    Congrats to all those with good news & hugs to those who need them.

    l heard a rumour that that Morecambe "ambergris" was a lump of lard that fell off a ship!

    l've just drained my samples of Fifi Chachnil & Josef Statkus, one on each arm. Mmm, incensy, tobacco-y goodness!

    Yes, B-belle and I both watched the Super Bowl, and yes it was a strange one this year, Quarry. I knew Baltimore would win, I don't know how.

    Congratulations, Lucasai!

    I wore L'Heure Bleue to my art class. It is one I don't have a personal history with, and I had hopes that it might be conducive to the artistic process, as certain types of music are. But it didn't make a difference. I can't seem to get to work in that class. There are too many distractions and I'm too aware of time passing.

    Such interesting stories everyone has. I really enjoy reading you all. I don't always pick names out for comment, but I read them all with interest, nevertheless (I'm not the greatest forum-ista, just love fragrances, and am here to learn).

    I wore the last of my J Lo Glow yesterday and the love affair is over. I'm so glad - it's like having a tawdry affair with someone you really don't like, but they still manage to get to you. I won't be visiting that one again .

    I'm back to woods today - CdG Hinoki. It's such a natural woody recreation with its own personality.

    Being stuck in town for 3 weeks has made me start craving natural smells. The Pineapple Express that hit southcentral AK a while back caused huge overflow problems on the lake I land my plane on at my homestead. I don't dare land on it yet with skis, unless I feel like nosing up (or worse), so I'm sitting tight in town, enjoying its amenities and pluses (eating out is nice!).

    Hello again!

    It's gone now so I can't double-check, but I'm not so sure about my initial jasmine-vanilla impression regarding Chanel 1932 ...well, not sure about the vanilla, that is ...could be tonka or something else slightly sweet and creamy ...or slightly resinous? Lol, I suppose I need to pay more attention to it next time. I really can't come up with another fragrance to compare it to iivanita, aside from initial knee-jerk and very fleeting reactions that I can't even recall clearly now, but it's not like Samsara, which is definitely more of a sandalwoody oriental than a jasminey floral to my way of smelling, but I think there is some smooth sandalwood in 1932 as well ...along with some rose and iris that I didn't mention before. One thing I can say for certain is it's already growing on me, as expected, and I'm looking forward to wearing it again and discovering what other facets have yet to reveal themselves.

    But now for something completely different, I'm in Ava Luxe's tender and graceful Nude Musk for the afternoon ...my current favorite soft and non-animalic, "your skin but better" musk.

    What fun, lilybelle! What medium are you working in? I can be like that too, easily distracted particularly when others are around. If you're allowed, I recommend bringing your own music to listen to, via headphones/earbuds of course. It really helps me to focus on what's in front of me - maybe it could work for you, too.

    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

    iivanita I forgot to mention that you smelled divine!!! I must say I have no idea what Homage smells like but I heard only amazing things.

    New Chanel? Jasmine? Iris, rose? Did someone said bacon? Nyam, nyam, nyam...

    Celebrating a new one that just showed up in my mailbox - Caron Narcisse Noir modern EdT. And I respectfully disagree with Madame Sanchez - you still can ruin man's life properly in this.

    Yes, Ms Quarry, I was watching the Superbowl and dreaming of the day MY team plays in it. Last night, I was rooting for 49ravener's to make Mr Shades some money ... and they did! He plays those games where you buy a square and hope that the score matches your square. Well, it did in the 3rd quarter and it plaid "close" in the 1st ... DH walked away with $1300!

    I'm wearing Herve Leger today. It's been a total bummer of a day and I'm just going to head to bed and cuddle with my dog, Cali ...
