    EASYFISH! Well done our lovely friend.

    Morning Jon. I am joining you (from yesterday) in Ormond Jayne Montabaco from the Four Corners of the Earth series. Montabaco is Latin America, leather, suede, wood and tobacco with magnolia, jasmine and rose.

    So, here goes. The top notes are; Air note, orange absolute, bergamot, juniper, clary sage, cardamom. The top notes are fabulous. The overall vibe being dry woody. We will see how it goes.

    Well Quarry, you did ask!! (Sorry to bore the pants off those of you who couldn't care less ). Well the new pipework and boiler are installed, the bathroom was totally stripped out and the new one is in, the plastering is done, the travertine floor is down , the oak floor is in progress, the tiling is partially done, the sparky is in today, and we are doing the nice jobs, like painting. Is "Elephants Breath" just not the nicest name for a paint shade that you have ever heard?

    Congrats to Herr easyfish!
    I'm reeking of Shalimar vintage Extrait, a hefty dose only appropriate for home use. It's the smokey vanilla thing I'm craving.
    Best to all or as G. puts it 'Happy hump day!"

    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.

    Well, I'm off to the eye surgery center this morning for my cataract removal. I feel old. <big sigh> I'm wearing a tiny spritz of Cuir Lancome for the occasion.

    hugs to all (especially Twolf!) ...

    Shades, I hope things go smoothly for you.

    ((((Twolf))))

    Foustie, I began typing "paint color elephan" and Google filled in the rest. Is that color located near the travertine? They would seem complimentary. Feathering one's nest is just so darned exciting. I've forgotten which frags PerfumeLady prefers, but I remember distinctly that she got a new metal roof last year. The other day I was revisiting Brielle's house in my mind (she put me up when I attended the Boston meet-up). I look forward to hearing about your hanging pictures and placing your beloved objets d'art. But, umm, what's a sparky?

    Congratulations, EasyFish, on 4,000 posts.

    I'm a big fan of your artful finds.



    Giving Mona di Orio's Tubereuse a fair trial. Its top notes are challengingly stinky-good, not quite horsey or fecal, but slightly like rotting compost with sweet fruit. Those notes fade pretty quickly, but they're kind of a hoot. When DH or DD encounter me later, I think they may furrow their brows. No, it's not Mom's usual, but Mom gets bored, and she can travel the scent trail less traveled every once in a while. Today, that's a sweet, buttery floral.

    Shades, good luck with the cataract surgery. Speedy recovery!

    Twolf, I’m always sending good wishes your way. Things will turn around soon.

    Foustie, I enjoy reading about the house re-do, too. It’s exciting.

    SotD is Eau de Joy. B-belle didn’t like yesterday’s Mania. I think it was the incensey quality that turned him off. At least it didn’t make him cranky like some chypres do. He likes florals – tuberose, jasmine. I’m buttering him up by wearing Joy today. I will have to find a new tuberose fragrance, too, one of these days.
