    Morning all!

    A sunny start to the week here, l'm wearing Jacinthe et Rose by E.Coudray from my sample; a lovely & soft spring floral.

    Have a good week, everyone!

    Good morning !. Chilly start and getting colder as the week progresses - basking in the subtle warmth of MFK Cologne pour le Soir today.










    Wishing everyone a good week

    Great pic, Jon!
    I'm in vintage Chergui (genuinely green juice from the black labeled Export bottle). It's not terribly different from my vintage bell jar, but it is somewhat 'fresher' (more hay, no rose) in feel. It's great stuff, too, but overall I prefer the old hay over smoke and leather thing.
    Best to all

    Good morning, everyone!

    Terrific picture, Jon!

    Nasty weather conditions today, so I'll have to reschedule my appointment. It's so bad
    that they are pulling the snow plows off the roads and closing several roads.

    Wearing Guerlain L'Instant this morning.

    Have a great day!

    In Coromandel today - thanks to a kind and generous G. who provided me with a sample. Liking this more and more though it's not the type of scent I normally tend to go for. Perfect for this grey, damp and cold day when a bit of warmth and comfort is needed.

    Good morning. It's very cold and sunny here this morning. I'm sampling By Kilian's Prelude to Love, which is an orange blossomy/neroli creamy luxury soap smell on me, and the iris is more like the faint scent of the petals of an iris stem, sticking your nose into the blossom to catch a faint, living, green note. It's amazing to me that this citrus note(s) can be sustained for so long, though, held aloft indefinitely until you notice that it is the pale iris that has taken its place. Otherwise...not much of a wow for me, this one. Though I like it very much. And we don't always need our socks blown off. I hope everyone has a good start to the week!

    A cold day here! Daughter is still home-- last day off, though, for President's Day. Back to school tomorrow.

    We went over to my mother's yesterday to take her out to supper but she had forgotten about it in the 15 minutes since we had last called her and had eaten a sandwich!

    So my daughter and I are going to take her out for lunch today instead. Early enough that she doesn't forget again and eat lunch in her apartment first! LOL

    Quick visit -- one more magazine to knock out. These issues are much smaller than usual. Hope that's not a trend.

    It's a perfect day for the warmth and sweet spiciness of Tea for Two although in my case it will be more like Tea for One because I am at work until very late.

    Evangeline, I liked 1932! I thought it's a bright and happy scent, with a surprising, very slightly fruity undertone as it develops. I only tested it at the store and forgot to ask if they had samples

    Good morning, fragrant friends. It appears that we in the midwest are in for another round of snow and frigid temperatures although Kiliwia has it much worse than her neighbors to the south. Stay warm, Kiliwia!

    I needed some warmth this morning, so I set the florals aside and wrapped myself in a warm sweater and Encens et Lavande.

    Happy Monday! Work week starting after a very nice weekend, so a little sluggish. Cuir de Lancome again today, as I seem to be on a little kick with this one right now.

    Enjoy your day!

    30 Roses - tell Mom I have two lunches all of the time.

    Yep, it's cold here in Sunny Miami today. Everyone's buttoned up here at the office & I have my thickest, itchiest blazer on at my desk here. Basking in the woody glow of:

    Santal de Mysore by Serge Lutens



    Total 180 on this one, I must admit. Absolutely hated it's syrupy sweetness before, now I quickly move past this to the unique and very realistic dry down. Sort of like you've found a large, rectangular sandalwood box and climbed in & closed the lid over you. Smells fantastic on a cold day too.

    Seasonal in CLE, which is to say we are matching Florida's unseasonal and warmer than NYC, from which I am getting regular chilly reports.

    Everyone smells so classy and here I come along...day off, madly cleaning a corner of the kitchen in preparation for new breakfast furniture arriving. Loud music and a loud scent: Ralph Lauren's Ralph Hot (IHOP in a bottle, that purple bottle in the photo). Co-incidentally, I'm wearing purple tights, and over those pink shorts and loud Cleveland Heights HS Tigers Tshirt. Hey, it keeps me going!P1020999.jpg

    My urge for spring florals continues apace this evening, with Champaca by CdG from their Luxe series. Beautiful!

    LOL Mike! She did very well-- probably twice what she normally eats at one sitting:

    New England clam chowder
    A dish of cole slaw
    half of her monster dish of shrimp and scallops over linguini
    half a slice of key lime pie
    plus one of those nice cheesy biscuits they make.
