    Morning all!

    Still cold, grey & dry here, but l'm craving flowers again, so it's Gardenia by Crabtree & Evelyn for me today.

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Off to an auction today where there are several spectacular lots of perfume. As most people go for the furniture, jewelry or art, the box lots should be reasonable. Going to wear Dianthus.

    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..."

    Evening All,

    Jon, I know Welney well. Nice day for a spot of birding ! Spot anything fancy ? I'm assuming there were plenty of swans still about.

    Wore Fumerie Turque in the day, now settled down in plenty of Jicky ( thereby twinning with l'enfer ).
    Hope all those who were under the weather are feeling better.
    Best to everyone.

    Plenty of Whoopers with a few Bewicks and Mutes mingling. Nothing else out of the ordinary for the area apart from a pair of Avocets, but a good solid line-up all round. Managed an historic wander around Ely this afternoon - I may post a pic or two tomorrow.

    Thanks, I was literally shaking with excitement! I never expected that the lot would be so great! Included too is a 200 ml body creme of YSL Champagne, before the name change. And several other large edts that were under the first layer (can you believe it layer) of boxes.

    I had only sniffed One Perfect Rose once before and could not afford any at the time...then poof, gone like so much else. I think it was launched and vanished back in the 90s...it smells beautiful. I couldn't help but open one of the sprays...it really is a perfume holy grail

    Sotd, La Violette, AG. I think my samples that I purchased may be old. They don't seem to have that candied top to them anymore. True that perfume can lose it's top notes after a while? Where is that candy? That's one of the reasons I got them. Bum deal. Still pretty but not complete!

    Hey y'all -

    I'm in Rossy de Palma again this afternoon. This has become one of my absolute favorite roses lately, and I just adore that incredible, intensely aromatic geranium note ...love it, love it, love it.

    Have a wonderful evening!

    Oh, Zibeline, you must just be wiggling with excitement.
    Tdem, how nice the job will feel new, but also comfortably familiar.
    Healing vibes to sweet Larimar and Mr. Roses.
    This week only a few of the pix posted in SoTD are visible to me when I'm on the Kindle, so I'll have to see Mike's new place when I'm on the computer.

    I'm wearing Tocca Stella today. Stella has a sunny vibe to it, with the blood orange and orange blossom. We are expecting a sunny day with warmer temperatures here to help melt some of this snow that is still piled everywhere!

    Zibeline, congrats on your wonderful score!

    Happy weekend, everyone!

    Good afternoon, all.

    smell bent Horny Little Devil. Again with that "dirty musk". Love that. This time with cinnamon and pepper. Like a sexy christmas candle, LOL. Smells very good though. Only for the winter.

    I started off with this tarry leather, The Canary and The Cobra from Imaginary Authors, but was worried that once I gone out, people might mistake that I hadn't washed my hair for several days. It's growing on me, but I'm just not bold enough...switched to Dior Homme Intense.
