    Good morning. Phew! Well I think that we have just about turned the corner this weekend with the new house, so it's now about putting together and finishing. Nearly there! Which is great because it means that I'll have much more time to hang out with you guys. It's been a hard couple of months though. I do really like working on the house but I don't like trying to fit in a full time job too! All work and no play makes Foustie grumpy!

    Happy Birthday rtamara!!

    SotD is Eau d'Hadrien edp, an older batch. I do not care for the current version.

    Hubby is still sick, just a nastier-than-usual cold. He even stayed home from work, which he almost never does, since he doesn't get paid for sick days. It's a common thing in his industry for employers not to pay for sick days-- so of course the employees go into work sick and infect others. Terrible policy.)

    I'm in Bottega Veneta for ballet this morning. I really don't give this enough play, but I do love it nonetheless. ♥

    Y'all have a great day!




    Happy Birthday rtamara, wherever you are!

    Oh androidi, that's another one of my favorites. I think you smell exquisite ...anything but plain!

    Foustie - it sounds like you're at the fun part now! Hang in there - you'll be relaxing in your fantastic new home and enjoying all the fruits of your labor before you know it!

    Get well wishes to the hubs, 30 R. You already have so much on your plate, but I know you'll take good care of him. Just be sure to take care of yourself while you're at it - we don't want you getting it, too!

    RTamara, Love You, Birthday Girl!
    Would kidnap you and take you out for drinks if I were in your neighborhood.

    Androidi, a belated birthday greeting to you, dear.

    Speaking of "android" … I read last night that Photobucket has issues to work out. Folks on some android devices are not seeing photos hosted on that site. I'm guessing Kiliwia has a second-generation Kindle, so she can see all posted images. Lilybelle and I are using first-generation models and suffer the Photobucket affliction. For example, Renee's cake above should be visible to all since it comes from Webfetti, while the Photobucket-hosted photo of a lounging RTamara below will render as only a blue question mark on some android devices.


    Now that I'm on the computer, I can see Mike's inviting new quarters and Jon's ducky photos -- all of which make me wish I could input myself into those digital scenes (and in the company of those dear souls, too!). Winter is truly lingering here.

    More vibes for Mr. Roses ~~~ heal, heal, heal.

    Glad to hear we're going to be getting larger quantities of Foustie!

    When I clean the house, as I MUST today, I like to be alone. Wearing Jo Malone Fresh Mint Leaf ought to drive Mr. Q out of here and back to his shop. He's got a little parlor stove back there and all his tools and a view of his wildlife feeding station and his air rifles (for picking off invasive, non-native sparrows), so don't pity his banishment.

    Mom fell in her bedroom, gashed her temple, bled all over the rug (scalps bleed a lot), dragged herself into the living room and speed-dialed the first button she could reach, a friend in FL, who called me.

    Hubby and I rushed over and found her on the floor. We called the nurses, who called the ambulance, and she's now on her way to the ER, where I am now headed and expect to be for the rest of the day. After that, who knows, depending on if she broke anything (I don't think she did-- she's alert and not complaining of pain.)

    Prayers are welcome!

    Aha, Quarry, that explains the kindle glitch. I LOOOVE that photo of Rtamara! That takes me right back to NOLA. We had such a great meet up, didn't we?

    No SotD for me yet, but I'm craving simple roses so I will probably go with that. See you later and I hope everyone is having a good day/afternoon.

    Oh my goodness, 30 Roses! I hope your mother will be ok. That is very upsetting. I'm so sorry.

    Happy birthday Rtamara!

    Hooray, Foustie! I'm crossing my fingers for some before and after photos! I miss working on a house; the pleasure I got from Quarry's photos borders on the creepy. I may need instead to content myself with doing a proper spring cleaning of my apartment and ordering some new prints for my walls (photos from my vacations and such). Perhaps some new curtains for my bedroom ...

    Teardrop, is La Tulipe the only Byredo sample you have? How do you like it? I haven't sniffed anything from that house, but I'm intrigued by the descriptions of a few of their fragrances, including La Tulipe. I'm also nosing around (heheh) Ineke's sampler set, as I haven't tried anything from that house, either....

    Anyone else have thoughts/experiences with Byredo and Ineke?

    30Roses, my goodness, I'm so sorry! I'll be thinking healing thoughts for all of you -- please take care of yourself, too.

    SotD is Histoires de Parfums 1804 (George Sand) -- pineapple with a Visa vibe.

    Welcome home, Twolf -- glad to have you back safely. I hope you'll have some time to rest before heading back to work. I'm laughing at your SotD. I must have still been typing as you posted. How do you like Ineke?

    ExtremeK, we visited the Byredo shop in Stockholm and left largely disappointed. Found the vast majority uninspiring and with highly synthetic bases. Re-tried a few in Liberty here recently and decided the house is just not for me. M/Mink is downright weird, and not in a good way

    Sampling our lovely Whitefluffy's Narcisse Noir today. Loved the beginning phase but now there's a sort of dryer sheet/feminine hygiene product accord presenting that bothers me. Please don't think I'm a fragrance cretin just yet, dear friend! Could just be a skin thing, my chemistry brings out this quality in even some of my beloveds on certain days. Will keep trying!

    Evening all!

    ExtremeK; La Tulipe is the only Byredo l've tried, courtesy of the lovely freddie. lt's not exactly natural-smelling, but it's an interesting & quite beautiful accord of rhubarb & freesia; much nicer than that sounds! On me it's a fresh & green floral, perfect for spring.

    Roses; lots of good vibes for you, your mum & Mr Roses coming your way. l do hope your mum is okay.

    30R, prayers going out to your mom and husband ((((hugs)))). Hope things get better sweetie.

    Sarrasins swipe on the wrists via cotton ball sample, (thanks Jujy!). Reminds me of Lust by Lush except less potent and a bit more woody. Warm jasmine, a little balminess. I barely, barely, barely get any carnation, I was hoping for more carnation, as I love that flower! It's a good jasmine but I don't think I would pay that much for a bell jar personally. When I can get a cheaper jasmine that will do. The purple juice is cool though!

    Extreme K
    I personally like Ineke, Twolf, I can say she likes none of the A-H sampler set(I think?) but does like some of the Floral Curiosities. I like Briar Rose like she does and own it. It's a nice, berried rose with patch. I like it better than Portrait of a Lady by Malle, just cause, my tastes just go that way. I think Twolf and I were both looking for a berried rose and we found one. My fave from Ineke is An Evening Edged In Gold, which, I really need to get sometime! I also liked Field Notes, that tobacco. But more wears and it reminds me of dryer sheets+tabacco and can't seem to get over the dryer sheet aspect. It's pretty alright though, best in colder weather. After My Own Heart is a nice lilac. I still have to try a few from the Curiosities line though. Sweet William was a bust for me though, lol. Ineke, I believe, is coming out with a sampler set containing those 1.5 ml spray vials, of the Floral Curiosities line. So, it's going to be like the A-H set but just the FC line. I think it's going to come out spring or summer, can't remember.

    30 Roses - I hope your mom did not incur any serious injuries. Sending her healing vibes...So sorry you had such a trying day today. Sending you calming and soothing vibes...

    And I have an Eau d'Hadrien question. I have a bottle but it smells different from the sample I tried before. The sample was zesty, bright and sparkly, whereas my bottle is noticeably mossier, heavier on ylang, and more sultry in feel. I wonder what version I have?

    PerfumedLady - do persist! I agree that NN is a strange one, but it probably has to do more with the weather conditions, just like with Le Temps d'Une Fete. These two are both heavy on narcissus...I wonder if they fluctuate in different weather due to the presence of narcissus?

    Jon thank you for the kind words! I missed a split for MI and now I am regretting it, the one and only Creed that stole my heart. As for Body by Kouros my husband used to wear it all the time when we first met. Unfortunately me being so enthusiastic about it caused him to inevitably get tired of it, and I haven't smelled it in years .

    Creeds.. I really liked GIT but I got a decant and now I can't say I like it as much? Maybe the decant was off..idk. I am too picky when it comes to men's scents. I don't like hardly any! MI was alright, musky though, if I remember right. Can't seem to find much out there! It's like I keep smelling sweet notes or melon-y fruit notes in men's scents lately and I can't stand it! Not that GIT is sweet, I am soo picky though. I don't like anything for men's lol. Not to get into a men's scent topic, sorry!

    Thanks all, I am home briefly gathering my stuff so I can go spend the night at Mom's. She was finally released after 9 hours at the ER, after multiple scans and XRays, blood and urine tests and hours on monitors and an IV as her BP dropped badly when she tried to get up to go home the first time (when we all thought she was good to go.) For a while they were talking about keeping her overnight.

    She has a 2" gash in her forehead, sutured now, and has hurt her right shoulder as well...no fracture but she's wrenched it somehow and moving it is limited and painful.

    There is no way she is safe alone. Tomorrow first thing I have to try to contact the agency that we used before for 24/7 caregivers. I hope it won't be too long before I can be relieved of staying with her. My husband is watching her so I could come home and shower. I'm pretty tired.

    Well, off I go again. Whitefluffy, I will get back to you about Eau d'Hadrien as soon as I can be home for a while.
    Jon, thank you for the PM.

    One good thing is that throughout this she has remained lucid. And she made out a lot better then the poor fellow we saw being wheeled in, compressions being done on him as they went...he didn't make it.

    There is no rush, at all, 30 Roses. I am just glad that your mom is alright and did not have more serious injuries. It was rather insensitive of me to ask at time like this.

    30R, very relieved to hear she has suffered no serious injury. It has obviously been an ordeal, but could clearly have been a whole lot worse. My very best wishes to you all.
